What happens after conscious consumption?
After initial consumption and the connection of mind, body and spirit begins the process of assimilation and digestion begins. The questions evolve from "What am I consuming?", "What is here that I need?", "What do I want from this?" to "How do I process/ utilize what I have committed to consuming?", "How do I make the most of this experience?" "Am I nourishing myself and my soul through this experience.?" Over processing, such as mentally over thinking or ruminating is just as detrimental to the system as under processing or creating a separation of self from the experience, both will derail the natural flow of the process and the digestive system.
Digestion and the flow of the digestive system are reflections of how we are processing our life, our experiences and the use of our spirit in our body. As we learn to live our experience fully, the way we process is continually adjusting to support us, directly impacting the health of our digestive system. Drastic changes in cognitive processing will disrupt the digestive system. The natural maturation and adult formation of our digestive system occurs around the ages 21-28 in conjunction with the 4th chakra and our development of our sense of self.
Common digestive system complaints often include stomach issues such as upset stomach, heartburn and ulcers, or issues of the intestines, such as constipation and diarrhea. Stomach issues suggest a difficulty in accepting new concepts, ideas and experiences with ease, and there my be an underlying mental confliction inhibiting the acceptance of nourishment from new sources. Intestinal issues may suggest a resistance to letting go of that which does not provide nourishment, or an inability to hold on to or integrate that which does provide nourishment.
As I have stated in previous blogs, our health and well-being is unique to each of us and the underlying triggers of our health issues are unique as well. Working with qualified health professionals can assist and support us along the way. Being conscious in our choices and finding our peace will soothe our process and our digestion as well.
