The tongue is a muscular organ inside the mouth that contains very important functions.
Thanks to the tongue we can speak, receive food and chew it, and thanks to its taste buds we can taste a wide variety of flavors and textures in food.
If we want to express a thought verbally, we need our tongue.
She makes it easier for us to say things delicately, modulates the voice and modifies or manipulates the expression that comes from within at our convenience, that is, the language is in relation to the word.
In the same way it can express our difficulty to say things delicately.
That is why, at times, we accuse ourselves of not having “bit our tongue”, that is, of having been indiscreet. What did I say that causes me guilt?
At certain times our tongue can hurt when we recriminate ourselves for not having expressed a word, which has remained “on the tip of our tongue”.
What unspoken emotion causes me guilt?
What do I feel guilty about?
Likewise, the tongue helps us to move the “mouthful” to dissolve it, chew it and thus be able to swallow it.
Being a muscle it can indicate that we feel powerless to catch a “mouthful”.
Other symptoms have a direct relationship with living, a feeling of guilt for what we have eaten, (real or symbolic).
What toxic food (emotional or real) did I swallow that makes me feel guilty?
On the other hand, the tongue can also be affected when we have eaten some food and, later, we reproach ourselves for having ingested it.
This is common when dieting.
The tongue also symbolizes the flavor that our life has.
Thanks to its taste buds, it allows us to differentiate flavors and enjoy them (real), as well as being able to appreciate the flavor of the experiences we live (symbolic).
“Life no longer tastes of anything.”
Biting one’s tongue is related to guilt for what has just been said or what one is about to say, as if blaming oneself.
The inflammation of the tongue (glossitis) is the consequence of not having expressed the anger that one feels.
It can also be the consequence of our difficulty to savor, to enjoy the pleasures of life.
The pasty tongue translates our difficulty to express ourselves, due to lack of confidence or fear of making a fool of ourselves.
Sores: In many cases, they are related to the fact of feeling guilty for having been critize another person.
Frenulum of tongue: When affected, it indicates that we cannot talk about something or someone.
Geographic tongue: (Map-like tongue surface)
The origin may be in a situation of separation from the desired word and impossible to express.
Simultaneously, they impose or force us to be in contact with a word that we do not want to express or pronounce.
Example: a radio host who for years ran a citizen aid program, but suddenly, the director of the station is changed and now they force him to only give the daily news.
Tongue cancer: It is with the tongue that we look for food to be able to chew it with our teeth; to achieve this we manufacture more tissue (tumor) to help us “catch” and improve the movement of the piece of food in the mouth, the “mouthful”, (real or symbolic) and then “swallow” it.
Cancer develops because what I want to achieve is something vital for me and it can be a job, money, a partner, a house, etc.
Do I feel helpless, unable to move the mouthful and swallow it?
Have I cheated or manipulated someone in order to achieve my goal, the “mouthful” and now I regret it and feel guilty?
“Life (or the” mouthful “of life) does not taste good”
The easiest way to remedy the feeling of guilt is to repair the action for which we regret.
