Western Tantra Sacred Sexuality
The Secret to More Intimate Connectedness and Enlightenment
Sacred sex is your god-given gift. Our cultures are filled with an enormous amount of fear, distortion, and confusion surrounding sex and sexuality. We are given unhealthy information about how to deal with sexuality in a sexually obsessed culture. For many people, sex is even more seductive than money.
Think of all the stories you were taught about your sexuality. How many times have you heard someone say that it’s shameful, dangerous, or not spiritual?
The topic of sexuality causes so many negative connotations. Many believe that it’s dirty or sinful. That you destroy all that is holy with your carnal desires and lust.
In many communities, homes, and workplaces, serious discussion of sexuality continues to be a taboo subject. It’s incredibly rare to hear any messages that even hint at sacred sexuality or the spiritual dimension of sex.
Many of the world’s religions imprint negative beliefs of sexuality in their followers. For thousands of years these religions have preached that sex is a base and vulgar act.
Sexuality seems to receive little mention in the sacred texts of Judiasm, Islam, and Christianity. It was included in the original Hebrew text but misinterpreted and purposely omitted afterwards. When it is mentioned, the suggestion is often to avoid it in order to reach greater spiritual heights. Most monks and gurus often teach that we need to abstain from sex in order to reach enlightenment. Yet, none of us would be here without it.
Sexual Energy Is A Potent Force. It’s a God-Given Gift.
Sexuality was meant to be a vehicle into spirituality, not an obstacle to it.
Sex is for worship. It’s the highest form of worship. The sacred lives in your body and engaging in conscious acts of tantric sex can lead to transcendent experiences of bliss and self-realization.
When we engage in great tantric sex with our partner, we temporarily step out of ego and personality, which are human experiences, and we step into our soul and engage in complete oneness with ourselves, our partners, and with God.
Great sex isn’t just about the physical act of sex itself. It connects two people at a higher level. It connects two individual souls with one another and themselves individually. It can be a completely euphoric experience.
Your sexuality is the greatest gift from the divine. Sexual energy forms the deep roots of yoru passion and creativity. Sexual, spiritual, and creative energy are all parts of one whole. If you are expressed creatively, you are going to be expressed sexually. If you are in the flow of expressive sex, then you know that God had a hand in it. Creativity is about spiritual communion.
What Is Tantra or Sacred Sexuality Exactly?
Tantra is a sanskrit word that means “woven together”. Hindu and Buddhist meditation practitioners use sexual union as a metaphor for weaving together the physical and the spiritual; weaving man to woman, and humanity to the divine. The purpose is to become one with God.
Tantra is a spritual practice in which sexuality is used to achieve higher spiritual states. It’s a spiritual practice to expand the consciousness, and join together the polarities of masculine and feminine energies into a whole. It’s the ancient key to sexual pleasure and psychic power, attained through a set of rituals.
These rituals make it possible to enjoy sex more often, for longer periods of greater pleasure than you have ever known before. And the more frequently you have sex with your partner, the more quickly and powerfully your sexual energy will regenerate itself.
In tantra, all faculties- physical, mental, emotional- are stimulated as strongly as possible, then controlled, to bring even higher pleasure.
Couples who engage in tantric sex practies find that they cultivate greater sexual pleasure and a sense of “dissolving” into one another that is profound and loving.
Sex is a deeply sacred act. When two bodies are joined, a very special temple is created through the forces of two spirits, two energy fields, blending into one. A powerful energy flows between the two bodies that is deeply healing, strengthening, and rejuvenating. It’s a profound opening… a letting go…. a perfect, wordless meditation on the creative forces of life. This is sacred sex.
The pricincples behind tantric practices can go a long way in deeping the connection you share with your partner. It creates a strong, unbreakable bond between partners where two people become one, a deep bond of emotional and physical closeness is formed, and a slient surrender to love becomes natural.
You reach a point where you no longer need to ask what your partner needs from you because you can simply feel it. Your emotional bond becomes so strong, you can feel your partner even from a distance. It’s a truly magical expression of love and communion with another soul.
