Sexuality is a reality not one of us can escape. We are born through sexuality and we are born with sexuality. Yet how many of us actually tune into the immense sacredness of our sexuality?

Please know this – Your sexuality is so very sacred. Your sexuality is precious, it is holy, and it is a powerful energy to behold.

Your sexuality is more than a pathway to physical pleasure or an avenue to create offspring.
Your sexuality is potentially a door to a multidimensional experience, a path to personal empowerment, and a wellspring of creativity begging to be birthed and expressed.
Your sexuality is your vitality, your longevity, your strength, your holy Shakti fire of life and beauty embodied.

Yet the reality so many of us have lived – in regards to our sexuality -has been one of degradation, repression, fear, shame, and bondage.  There have been great sexual violations endured by so many people – causing a collective energy of fear and repression to take hold in the sexual centers of a multitude of souls.

On the other side of that coin, there are many souls lost in delusions, perversions, and distortions of their sexuality.  Through this, we see aggression, molestation, rape, pornography, and other expressions of a severely degraded sexuality.

With all these imbalances and traumas many people have swayed too far into careless promiscuity and loose boundaries, or too far into imprisoned expression, shameful denial, and frigid hiding.

Beyond the traumas and distortions, we also have the cultural influencing upon our sexuality. From birth, we are taught, mostly through images, songs, and subconscious messages how to behave and how to express ourselves as sexual beings. We have allowed society to define what sexy is, how to dress, where to meet others, how and when to wed, and so on. Yet is this societal education righteous and true enough to be honored? To be followed and obeyed?

To me the answer is obvious. It is a big fat NO. Society at large is not righteous and true enough to dictate how we should express and experience our sexuality. The manifestations of our culture in relation to sexuality are in our face and undeniable. We can see the rampant sicknesses of body and soul in regards to misused and abused sexuality. We can see a culture thick with rape, molestation, sexual disorders, diseases to the reproductive organs, prostitution, pornography, and so on. To me, I see the obviousness of the need for sexual healing.

To begin this healing we must reevaluate our ideas and feelings about sexuality. We must be willing to see the truth of sexual energy – its source, its potential, and its consequences.
I encourage us all to begin by understanding that sexuality is more than procreation or pleasure through intercourse. Sexuality is a force, an energy, a source of creativity and vitality. One does not need to have sex or pleasure themselves to be a highly sexually charged person. Through tantra, yoga, chakra healing, and other practices, you can nourish and tap into your sexual energy and power to boost immunity, fortify longevity, draw up inspiration, connect with the divine, enhance the awakening process, express yourself creatively, and radiate beauty.

You can emanate sexual energy and stay poised in authentic attractiveness without dressing in the degrading costumes – chosen by the mass media agents – that we were taught to us to be “sexy”. We have been taught through the media what sexy looks like. We need to remember that this concept was created to get a reaction… a reaction of consumerism or conformity. These images and ideas were created by people looking to profit and gain power. One of the greatest acts of liberation we can perform is to reject these ideas and discover what is our truth and our authentic sexual expression.

It is also important that we understand that we can experience the depth of intimacy and pure connection without baring our bodies and be jumping into bed with anyone who invites us. Promiscuity is not sexual liberation or sexual empowerment. It is actually spiritually, psychically, emotionally, and physically dangerous, messy, and typically the behavior of a desperate soul with a little self-love. Sexual liberation is the ability to feel truly empowered as a sexual being, to know how to maintain healthy boundaries, make choices that align with our highest good, and to access our sexual energy for creative and spiritual purposes. If we decide to share sexual intimacy with another person, that is our right and our choice. Yet we can still be sexually liberated, empowered, and healthy without sharing intimacy with anyone. I believe there is far greater power by not sharing intimacy until we are sure that a true soul connection and love is calling us together.

For those of us making efforts to awaken consciousness and heal – so we may align with our divine purpose and embody empowerment – it is crucial that we don’t look past this issue.
Sexuality is a powerful energy with powerful effects on much of our lives.
Religion has tried to stifle it and chain it into a patriarchal agenda – thus creating a multitude of perversions and violations, Hollywood has practically made sexuality equate to pornography, the mass media outlets have used sexuality to sell everything under the sun, and the “sex industry” has been seducing multitudes of lost souls into its clutches of carnal tragedy at an alarmingly increasing rate.

costa rica newsI know many people are hurting in regards to sexuality. I know many have been violated, abused, taught to repress their sexuality, taught shame and fear…
I have been down these roads. I have experienced the dark side of sexuality and spent many years manifesting the painful results of unhealed traumas. I can gratefully say now that I have done the work to heal the traumas and liberate my sexual energy from those dense vibrations. Through my personal healing, I have changed the course of my life and attracted so much more joy, health, and vitality.  I now help others find freedom from traumas, shame, fear, and more.

Many of the people I work with in healing are struggling with issues related to sexuality and to their sexual center – infertility, menstrual difficulties, diseases of the reproductive organs, adrenal fatigue, infections, impotency, sexual addictions,  sexual repression, creative blocks, and more.

This is a sign of a great imbalance and illness in our society.
Our creative centers – the centers responsible for continuing human life – are hurting, sick, filled with fear, and carrying energetic distortions and distress. It’s time to change things. It starts with each of us.

As I stated earlier, to begin the process we must reconsider our ideas and beliefs about sexuality. We must deconstruct what has been programmed into our minds and feelings. We can fortify this work by reclaiming our sexuality as sovereign and sacred.

Now is the time to heal the wounds of traumas and abuse, tap into our creative power, define our own styles and expressions, boycott society’s dictates on how to “be sexy”, “date”, or anything to do with our sexuality. It hasn’t earned that privilege!

Empowerment exists for those that choose it. Empowerment includes being confident and aligned with integrity in our sexuality. Sexuality is a power that each of us can own and direct in our lives… it’s not up to anyone else to own it or direct it. In our choice to reclaim our sexuality and enliven our sexual centers with vitality –  we free up so much energy for healing, creativity, positive relationships, and joy. It is through this we ca allow life to be an ongoing creative journey … and this, I believe, is what so much of our collective purpose is about. For if we truly were created in the likeness of the Divine, then we must accept that we were made to be creators… we were made to be powerful and filled with vibrant light and love. Let us remember this and do the work we need to do to return to the state of awareness that accepts our sexuality as sacred… not just accepts it, but embodies it!
