Sexual Energy

Our use of sexual energy goes beyond the sex act, it is how we channel and flow our life force to radiate our own unique self within the world, our creative projects and our relationships.

Sexuality goes beyond the actual sexual physical act. Our sexual energy is linked to our own vital force ~ the sexual energy is one with kundalini.

It is said that the source of enlightenment is raising that sexual energy and finding its connection to our spiritual purpose. The suppression of the sexual energy or over focus on physical sex causes so many distortions and creative blockages, frustrations that will actually prevent us from being who we actually are in our own unique creative expression.

By learning to encourage, cultivate and channel our sexual energy we have more to offer to ourselves and others, a vast well of resource to tap into. As this energy moves through our bodies it finds all the patterns and blocks within us and facilitates us to release that which is holding us back from our full potential and keeping us locked in repeating, self-defeating behaviours, relationships and life scenarios.

By working with sexual energy in a way that is removed from the sex act, we fill our bodies with energy and pleasure in order to be able to give back to the world without feeling cut off from our inner child, cut off from a sense of adventure and innocence; we experience our full vitality and pleasure but with a sense of innocence, fun and playfulness.

 

Tantra vs Conscious Sexuality

Conscious sexuality is only a very small part of the total path of Tantra and Tantra can be (and is often more powerful in it's practice) if it is practiced as a inner path.

The whole western way of selling tantra as a sexual practice has warped the view of the beautiful and complete life changing path of Tantra.

Saying you are following the tantric path and getting stuck at conscious sexuality is like going on the most amazing, vast, adventurous journey of your life, stopping at the first motel and thinking you have arrived.

As tantra has been adopted in the West a ‘sex sells’ warped view of what tantra is seems to have developed. The western model has been to suppress sex and then use sex to sell everything to us. Neo-tantra has freed sex and then used this to sell everything. Neither model works, both cause distortion.

Sexual energy is the most potent form of the life force, yes, but physical sex is just a part of life, a part of this life force. Tantra is about coming fully alive, opening and meeting life fully in its totality.

To practice tantra requires even greater compassion and greater intelligence than are required on the sutra path; thus, though many persons in the degenerate era are interested in tantra, tantra is not for degenerate persons. Tantra is limited to persons whose compassion is so great that they cannot bear to spend unnecessary time in attaining Buddhahood, as they want to be a supreme source of help and happiness for others quickly.
