What Is Your Soul Craving?

I was sitting here craving something and it started me thinking.  Most of us are used to feeling cravings in our bodies… cravings for salt, cravings for something sweet, craving for sleep.  Today, let’s change our focus a little bit and look at things in a different, more subtle way.  Look (or rather, feel) into yourself and ask… “What is my soul craving???”

Swirly StarKnock, knock… Is anyone home?

Chances are your soul is sending you signals and you are missing them.  Your soul communicates to you in very quiet, subtle ways.  Most of the time, the signals of the soul are drowned out by our busy lives.  Even if you get the message, many people try to stuff it down because it is the “proper” thing to do.

What do soul cravings feel like?

There are many ways the soul can attempt to get its message to you. It can feel like a nagging urge to do something.  Perhaps you are being “called” to start meditating, almost like it’s an itch you need to scratch.

Your soul can send you messages and signs in external ways too.  Have you ever had that experience where a subject seems to come up everywhere you turn?  Perhaps you had an idea to start your own business and you dismiss it.  Next thing you know, your friend suggest a book to you about starting your own business.  Then you see information about an upcoming workshop for new entrepreneurs in your field of interest.

It can be compared to being beaten over the head with a cosmic 2 X 4!  (A soft one, of course.)

So what is your soul craving?  What are the signs and signals you have been getting to move in a new directions?  Please let me know in the comments section!

    Hi Kelly,
    It’s like we have to have permission to feed our soul. Seems it should be the other way around, doesn’t it? Great thoughts! Thanks!

      Hey KK!

      I think it’s just about re-learning to listen to ourselves and making our own needs a priority. We are taught from such a young age to listen to what others want from us instead.

      And… here’s your permission! ;)

  2. You are so right that if we are not quiet enough and don’t having any pauses between one activity and the next, we may miss those messages from the soul. My soul was craving the pauses I just mentioned, and I have been making changes to give it what it needs.

      Quiet time definitely helps you hear your inner voice and soul cravings. It’s wonderful to hear that you are paying attention to yours. Good for you, Jeanine!

  3. I sometimes wish I could hear or feel the signals of the “soul messages”. I don’t know whether I’m having my mid-life crisis or what. Of course, society trains us to ignore the signals – go to school, get a job, work hard, make a ton of money, etc.

    The real challenge is finding you soul craving and be able to satisfy it.

      Hey Ken! Thanks for the comment. It is definitely a journey and I think it takes patience and practice. Learning your own signals and signs can be a bit tricky because they are usually very subtle. Set your intention, then pay attention, and you’ll be doing it with ease in no time!

      I have faith in you. :)

  4. When I’m tempted to eat my favorite (unhealthy) comfort food, I check in with my soul to discover what it is I’m really wanting. Food is simply a vehicle that takes you to what you are needing but it doesn’t fill the need. By checking in with the soul, you may discover that you really need a hug, a conversation, a good cry. When we fill the need with food instead of what it is we REALLY need, the void remains and we continue to try to fill it.

    Thank you for such a beautiful and thought provoking post!

      Excellent point, Lynette. I had never really thought about it in relation to food before, but goodness knows I should listen to my soul cravings instead of my “food cravings” in that area!
