The soul perceives the physical senses and this article will explore the sense of taste that exists within the human embodiment. Taste is important and we sensationalize eating as an experience. There are cooking shows and competitions to allow people to attempt to prepare the best meal. Someone then judges based only on taste preference.
Think of the spices and additives that have been created just to enhance the human experience of taste. Now think of how differently people react to certain spices or have opposing views of the same food. Even those sharing a meal at the same table, eating the same food, can have taste reactions that are different. Take this further and realize that humans have varying reactions to biting, swallowing, and ingesting the same foods. While this could be due to food allergies, chemicals used in production, or how the food is grown and harvested, but the variables still come out in how we experience the taste. Basically, no two humans taste anything in the exact same way. The way we experience the taste of something is completely personal to our taste buds, sensory, and circulatory systems. Looking at this from a spiritual perspective, the Source would be limited if things tasted the same every time to every person and this is not true of the Source.
Soul’s Perspective on Taste
The soul has a perspective on taste and it comes from within. Think about the last time you had a traumatic experience and suddenly got a sour taste in your mouth or metallic taste in the back of the throat. If you are not ingesting something at that moment, you are aligning that taste with an emotion. This is the soul’s taste experience, but people often explain it away or at least try. Physical taste is aligned with the contact of the tongue and taste buds in relation to a substance. This is something we reference as pleasant or not and can label it as salty, sweet, bitter, or sour.
The inner soul’s taste is a bit different and is first activated by an emotional experience. This can cause you to taste something with no substance. Think of the phrase the sweet taste of success or victory is sweet. We associate these with a pleasant taste without any substance present. Traumatic experiences also come with a taste, often sour or acidic, based on the emotions being stirred up.
The way to tell the difference is if your tongue touches something first or the emotion comes first. If the tongue touches something then it is a physical taste, otherwise it is an emotional reaction. As you refine your awareness of the process and have a heightened awareness state, you will be better prepared to align your soul with all your senses. As you work on aligning with the soul and you practice the act of conjuring the emotion, you can express this through taste, sight, and sound. Most people do not realize that we can experience the soul through our senses, but now that you do, you can raise awareness and be more in touch with the soul.
