The spiritual meaning of itching is different than the usual physical definition.
Itching is the irritating feeling that makes you want to scratch, cool down, or do whatever you can do to get some form of relief.
From skin allergies to the bite of an insect, the causative agent of itching varies greatly.
An itchy area could be small or larger, depending on various factors.
Sometimes, you may have an itchy sensation all over your body. Often it is a localized area that begs your attention.
Hands, back, and feet are the most common parts to feel an itch, but no body part is immune to this unlikable condition.
Many times, itching appears in the region where there’s a pimple or a skin allergy.
If there is an obvious lump or a healing cut, you can go ahead and rule those out as non-spiritual itches.
A mosquito, ant, or flea bite is another leading cause ruled out here.
You will know because when any insect bites, there’s always a skin puncture, rash or redness to indicate that something has happened.
Many people develop a rash due to food allergies as well.
Encountering a chemical irritant or allergen can also be added to the list of itching occurring physically only.
Now we know what spiritual itches are not, let’s find out what they are.
Why Does My Skin Itch When It Is A Spiritual Issue?
Our physical body encases our souls and energy.
Our skin will feel itchy, irritated, hot, chilled, etc when our spiritual self wants to communicate something to us.
It can be a range of messages from this life or past lifetimes. It may even be another soul or spirit trying to interact with you.
It is a way we know that something or someone is needing our spiritual and emotional attention.
Spiritual Meaning Of Itching
So what does it mean when there is no medical or evident cause behind the appearance of a rash or sensitive often lumpy skin?
What is this skin sensation telling you?
Why is there a prickly, hot, or weird feeling like something is crawling on or underneath your skin?
Well, when itching is present without any medical cause, then there is always a spiritual reason behind it.
We are multi-layered beings. Our physical self is one layer of many.
But for lots of people, it is the first or only place they feel spiritual issues.
Itching is a sign of something is bothering us, prodding us to pay attention to it’s cause.
It is the indicator that something is troubling us deep inside our souls.
And by this I mean it is spiritual and emotional warning blended into one action.
When It Is A Past Life Issue
Our souls are amazing supercomputers, they store all our past life data.
Every human soul has worn many cloaks and is aware of them all simultaneously, even if we are not.
Unless we are awakened and aware of what we truly are, we stay somewhat separated from the knowledge stored in our soul chips.
All physical damage, abuse, and cause of death are stored in the records of our souls.
Our superconsciousness sometimes wants us to reenact these moments as a way of self-healing the emotional, physical and spiritual wounds we bear.
Be glad your itch gives you a heads up!
Having this kind of insight is priceless, these energy blocks can turn into golf ball-sized painful muscle knots if we neglect them.
I know this from the knot that rears its ugly head at the base of my neck.
It is a past life reminder of all the hangings my witchy self has seen.
I have had this healed by a spiritual master, however, that is not completely effective, as soon as I am worn out it comes back giving me nasty headaches and migrains.
Pay Attention To Your Dreams
What can you do when you have eliminated all physical causes of a persistent skin issue and have identified that you do indeed have a spiritual itch?
One of the best tools to use is your dreams, they are a valuable source of soul information.
Before you go to sleep say a few words to yourself and ask your soul to help you see what it is that is begging for your attention.
When you are dreaming watch out for any clues related to the area affected by your phantom itch.
You may not understand at first but practice this technique as much as you can and the message will become clearer.
What Can I Do About It?
You could uncover something that has plagued you longer than you know.
Often just being able to acknowledge a grievance your soul or body has endured over mallenia is enough for the irritation to stop.
Other times you will see that you are on the wrong path and need to make changes to how you are living.
When It Is An Unfulfilled Desire Or A Feeling Of Anger
When you don’t have any way to show your trouble, it comes out from your body in the form of an itch or if left too long, a muscle knot of pain.
Whenever your unconscious is having a problem, and you try to hide the feeling from yourself, your mind finds a way to express itself.
It is aware of the things that you are burying deep inside you, and when your body can not bear the burden, it finds a way to express it.
When you overlook your desire or try to cover your anger, an itch is always there.
There is always an appropriate channel to solve your issues.
An Itch Appears When You Take The Shortcut And Hide Everything
When you feel the itch, and you scratch it instantly and get relieved, it is the indicator that you have a conflict and the results are according to your desire.
But when you don’t feel comfortable even after scratching, it means that the results of the conflict are bothering you.
When you feel itchy for no reason, even after you take a good shower, then take a good look within yourself.
Sit silently and explore your mind. Try to think about the thing that has bothered you recently, and you didn’t react to it at all.
Give time to yourself and think about the problems you are facing currently.
Spiritual Meanings Behind Skin Irritations
Skin Rash Spiritual Meaning
Skin rashes often signify spiritual growing pains, or a resistance to change.
Rashes indicate we are emotionally irritated as we shed old ways of being and adopt new ones.
They symbolize our rebirth. As we learn spiritual lessons, rashes remind us to care for our renewed sensitive spirit.
Spiritual Meaning of Itching Head
An itchy head points to overthinking and obsessive thoughts. It signals we may be too mentally active and concerned with controlling outcomes.
We must calm our thoughts and trust in our higher power. An itching head calls us to let go so new insights can emerge.
Itchy Emotions Meaning
Itchy skin reveals our raw emotions close to the surface. It signifies suppressed feelings bursting forth for healing.
As emotions come up to be recognized, rather than resisting, we can thank them for the messages they bring and allow them to transform us.
Spiritual Meaning of Itchy Tongue
An itching tongue symbolizes a desire to vocalize our truth. We may feel restrained from freely expressing expanding viewpoints.
The spiritual message is to speak our wisdom gently, without attachment to outcomes. As we give voice to our soul’s purpose, we liberate not only ourselves, but inspire others.
It Could Be That A Spirit Is Trying to Get Your Attention
If you are at this point and have not been able to find relief it means a spirit is trying to show you something deeper.
Don’t try to bury these feelings again if you find what is disturbing your unconscious mind.
Instead, work with what you know and meditate on the affected area, and ask the spirit to show you what happened and you will see what needs to be resolved.
Remember that desire, anger, and sadness are expressions.
They make you who you are. Don’t be afraid to go deep and find the emotional wounds that are showing up on your skin.
You should solve the problems you face and should not neglect them if you desire peace in your soul.
These small irritations now will turn into full-blown skin problems later if left unchecked.
Even if they are from a past life, these are still you, still a part of you that needs healing.
