I once had a lengthy chat with a gastroenterologist or a doctor who has undergone specialized medical training in illnesses and conditions concerning the stomach, liver, intestines, rectum, and colon.
This doctor was a good friend and over lunch, we had a lengthy discussion about the stomach.
I recently experienced some stomach pain and was diagnosed with acid reflux. It was partly because of my lifestyle, my doctor friend said.
To which, I told her that there were other reasons for my stomach pain and problems aside from the medical reasons.
She could not understand, my friend said. Then I told her that there are spiritual causes for my stomach pain and I went on to explain the possibility of stomach pain’s spiritual meaning.
What Does The Stomach Represent Spiritually?
The stomach spiritually represents nourishment. This isn’t only about what we eat but nourishment is about what we feed our mind, body, and soul.
The stomach represents nourishment in all aspects of our lives.
- The stomach may represent what we feed our bodies. Do you eat good quality and nutritious food?
- The stomach also represents what we feed our minds. Do you consume media or materials that add to our knowledge or help us make informed choices?
- This organ may also spiritually represent what we feed our souls. Do you consume materials and goods that help you live spiritually pleasing lives?
The stomach may also represent how we live our lives and whether ways are spiritually pleasing.

Spiritual Meaning of Bloated Stomach
A bloated stomach spiritually means the excesses you have in your life that are doing you no good. Think about it, many times a bloated stomach is a sign of our excess intake of unnecessary food or drinks or the presence of a blockage.
Having a bloated stomach is a sign from the heavens to cut the unnecessary things in your life.
This could be food like junk food or alcoholic drinks. You could stop consuming media that does little for your life like excessively violent films or videos maligning people.
You may also cut off people whom you think are causing you to sin or hurt other people.
A bloated stomach should make you reflect on the excesses or unnecessary food, things, drinks, or people who do you no good or only cause you harm.
You need to cut them off like you would empty the unnecessary things from the bloated stomach.
Stomach Spasms Spiritual Meaning
Spiritually, stomach spasms are a reflection of your anxiety and stress.
You are getting the spasms as you are worried about your present circumstances as well as what tomorrow may bring.
The stomach spasm is a manifestation of your constant worry about what is happening and what may or may not happen in the next few days.
This is also a sign of your lack of faith. Your body is showing signs of stress because you are unable to fully trust the ones above.
Your body, in a way, is suffering because you do not have steadfast faith that things will happen according to the supreme being’s plan.
When you are having stomach spasms, then think of your possible sources of worry and stress and pray about them.
Ask the ones above for guidance and strength to overcome whatever hardships will come your way.
Gas In Stomach Spiritual Meaning
The gas in your stomach spiritually is a reflection of your lack of substance or knowledge.
The heavens have likely noticed how you tend to speak first without thinking thoroughly about what you are trying to say or how you do not take the time to gain more knowledge.
Instead, you speak of things as if you are highly knowledgeable on the topics but you know little.
The ones above want you to stop doing this; speaking and pretending like you know much when you know so little. Speaking without substance is like passing gas.
It causes people discomfort and yet these people whom you have made uncomfortable gained nothing when you spoke or passed gas.
Feed your mind then with useful information or arm yourself with knowledge and work on what you know. This is the spiritual meaning of gas in your stomach.
