The More I Connect To Sex, The More I Connect To God
I was in a Facebook group and someone posted a post around Spirituality and Sex that caught my attention.The person shared that the more she’s become spiritual/enlightened, the fewer desires she has for sex.
My curiosity led me to scroll through different responses, actually over 200 comments on this topic. And while I often don’t like getting caught up in debates like that, I felt the need to share my perspectives on this topic, something that is so close to my heart.
Sex is NOT a dirty word…
In my experience with my journey of ‘awakening’, sexuality has played a crucial part. I found that the more I connect to my body, the more I connect to my sex, the more I connect to God.
It’s my greatest source of joy, of happiness, of pleasures…in this place I get to fill my cup so damn full that it nourishes my soul. In this place, I experience the depth of life, of love. In this place, I get to connect intimately and authentically with myself and others.
Lots of religions and traditional spirituality consider sex as something we need to avoid, something to be ashamed of, something that is not ‘spiritual’. In fact, conversations around sex, desires, pleasures are something we need to keep behind closed doors.
Somewhat, Sex or sexual energy is considered quite taboo to talk about.
And let me tell you, that’s spiritual bypassing right there!!!
If sex is something that is to be ashamed of, if pleasures and desires are something that is ‘forbidden’, God/Universe wouldn’t have created them in the first place.
We wouldn’t have been here as humans!!! We wouldn’t have been born!!!
If sex/sexual energy is a Sin… then all that is created by this life force should also be considered as a sin… like babies, and ideas, and creations, and connection, and joy, and pleasures…
Well, you get my drift!
Sex or sexual energy is something so f*cking beautiful and sacred!!!
It’s eros, it’s life force, it’s creation, it’s deep love and intimacy, it’s our intuition and magick, it’s our receiving and magnetism.
Sexuality is also closely connected with the way we own our beings, the way we love ourselves, the way we honour our truths, the way we reclaim our voice, the way we relate with our heart, the way we bring forth divinity in human forms.
Sexuality is one of the areas that have the biggest shadows…and most people don’t know how to work through them. Most people don’t know how to own these suppressed parts within themselves. They fear so they avoid.
What we don’t own, ends up owning us…
When we don’t cultivate it within ourselves, our sexual energy becomes leaky and predatory, or we become victims to such power, paralysed by people and the environment. We judge, shame and criticise others when in truths, we judge, shame and criticise those parts within ourselves.
I don't know about you but no matter how 'enlightened' and 'spiritual' one may become, if they can't find peace and acceptance for those parts within themselves, your spiritual practice goes down the drain.
Or we outsource to external things or people. Imagine how much sexually related traumas, addictions, and patterns can be greatly reduced if people learn how to cultivate this energy resourcefully.
Trust me, I’ve had enough years in cultural and sexual suppressions to know.And that’s why it has been a big part of my journey to reclaim my life force.
Working with sexual energy doesn’t mean you have to go out there and have a threesome or an orgy to feel ‘enlightened’ or spiritual…again - another bypassing.
It’s working with you and your life force, your body, and your connection. It’s owning your birthrights as humans on this earth. It’s claiming who we are fully and unapologetically.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this too...What do you believe about the relationship between spirituality and sex?
