Published on Breathing system, Smell.

The nose assimilates the subtle side of things and exposes our relationship with breath, air, and heaven. The nose is closely associated to life through smell.

Smell adds volume and colour to taste, and is indissociable from it, in the same way the two eyes are indissociable from each other. Smell-related problems (chronic, not momentary) represent fear of allowing subtle things of life inside us, due to lack of self-esteem.

Loss of smell may also be caused by fear of acknowledging the animal that lives inside us. In fact, in the animal world, smell is a great tool for hormonal, hence sexual, recognition. The nose is associated to sexuality. The person who suffers from smell-related problems is also someone who contains his sexual impulses.
