Our society has quite the taboo on sex and sexual desire. We are allowed to chatter it in jest and in a flirtatious way, but a serious discussion to understand this life creating desire is not found about. No one ever spoke of sex to us in a way of learning or understanding. Our world, driven by this desire to create new life, has many things hidden and unwanted energy manifested by pretending this powerful energy doesn't exist. We don't just not think about it for it is not a thinking. It is part of our physical life force, our whole body designed to procreate. We are in an environment, nature, that has only sexual, creative energy buzzing about us every minute. This seems a topic we must address.
I address this as a learning of myself, to understand my femininity and my divine sacred temple body I live in. Science says as woman age, this desire gets stronger. As I learn of femininity and the truth that woman are the pleasure beings of the world, I am embracing this sexual desire nature I have. Many beliefs exist in me and around me about this. Dispelling these untruths part of the learning and embracing the incredible way I was created as a sexual, creative being my goal. Woman are the highest creators and their body designed to create the highest form of life. Our body different, creativity our basic nature, our womb the most important part of our body.
Union of man and woman creates new life. This desire is a force. It is not a thinking but a biological, hormonal force acting within us. It has a purpose, it can be honored as sacred. I am not sure why we don't honor and embrace this? Enlightenment, relaxation, oxytocin (the pleasure hormone), the parasympathetic nervous system that rejuvenates, all inspire our body to be healed, calm and peaceful. Intimacy resets us, rebalances our cells and electrical charges, and give us a powerful pleasure that nothing else can give. It creates life. This is some powerful force and good feeling. Why do we not embrace and want to understand this more? Oxytocin, the healing pleasure hormone, the greatest healer is exuded during sexual pleasure. Maybe our desire is based on healing and health as well as creating life. That is pretty cool.
We have all these rules about intimacy, when and how, with who and why. We have judgments about others choices. We have a whole "me too" campaign based on the misuse of sexual desire. We have a whole internet that was built from the beginning by porn. We seem lost about this desire, how to embrace it, what to make of it and how to explore it in a healthy way. I think it is an individual and personal choice. I can only learn and understand myself so why would I bother trying to figure out what others do? Especially about this subject that no one truly discusses in truth and openness?
I chose to say it is brilliant and part of me as a spirit and a human. I like the feeling of pleasure. Our womb, sex organ area is associated with the sense of taste and considered our pleasure center. We can embrace pleasure many ways and support this drive. Pleasure inspires relaxation and a great healer! It resets our body into the parasympathetic nervous system and creates oxytocin. This balances our cortisol, stress levels. It comes in many ways and pleasure a desire that must be filled. Pleasure is something we all want in this world so lets look at this desire, drive and center.
Sexual desire, food pleasure are only two ways to manage this center. Creative endeavors on any front inspire pleasure and support this sexual energy. Often when we are not experiencing pleasure in other areas of our life, we get this need to be fulfilled. Food is the easiest way to quell it. We can often overeat if we have no other pleasure for it is fastest to satiate. We can get overly sexual as well because we don't have pleasure in other ways. This desire very powerful. In understanding the mechanics of our body we can see it as a call to use creative energy that drives life. Seeking ways to do this in our lives will support to move this energy into positive expression. We can choose how to use it. It doesn't need to run us into overeating, over thinking of sex, getting lost in how to express that it uses us.
Creative desire may be a more accepted way to speak of this. It opens the idea about this center and this desire in us. We can use it in many ways. The Masters taught me that we can use this energy and move it through whatever expression and chakra we want. Food and sex are one way. In grounding this in our root chakra we can create beauty in our body through movement and health. By using our power center we can use it to work in our passion. In using it in our heart center we can use it as great healing love. In our throat we can be a muse and inspire others with this creative energy. In our third eye we can use it to see visions and connect with divine seeing and will.
I find pleasure to be the key and prime experience here in a body. Engaging our senses to really feel, hear, see, taste, smell and touch the world. Not in hedonism or overindulgence but in everyday enjoying the world as we move. We are grounded in our body by this sensing. We are healed, relax and reset by this pleasure and the oxytocin hormone. Sexual desire is just one of the ways this can heal us. It also allows this energy to be useful in our world and around our world. It is not all about sex anymore but something greater.
To me, it is all about healing and inspire you to look wider at this energy. Yes, we could pigeon hole it to just sex. That offers us great healing and pleasure. But anything overused or obsessed about is not healthy or pleasing. Balance in all things is the best. To create pleasure in all ways in our life will add more health and healing. Sex is one way. Creative endeavor a vaster way to use this force. Then many things can occur, we use the energy as the power it is and we don't get run by it. We use it wisely and purposefully.
I, as a woman, have much of this creative, sexual energy. I am designed that way. I will use it all ways to support pleasure, healing and creativity. I do not feel bad if I want to express it through sex. I teach energy efficiency and management. There is no doubt this is a great healer so I won't call it immoral or wrong. I will place it in my box of healing tools and use it when I feel it is healing. I chose to let go of the crazy thinking about sex and desire in the world. I find it all beautiful, healthful, pleasurable and quite natural as divine expression!
I will take pleasure in all ways! For that is the second most healing to oxygen, the Breathe of God. We are creators. This is our creative center and it is filled with powerful energy to be used in the world. Let us embrace, honor and be passionate about this sexual energy! It creates. We chose how to use and direct it! Oolala!
