Lying awake late at night on my bed one night, I felt the urges of lust mounting in me. I wanted to wait for my husband to come home, but I couldn’t stop myself. I needed the connection. I needed the sweet relief to wash over me and let me touch bliss in the moments between heaving sighs.
I needed an orgasm.
These words are so ineffable by many women I’ve met. They’ve become so perverted, twisted, and polluted. They are a mark of shame for many of us otherwise innocent women. We’ve been shamed into believing our emotional, spiritual, and bodily desires are something to disavow and get rid of… So we work and work and work and work. And suppress, ignore, alienate, and abuse our own selves to avoid the awkward and uncomfortable feelings we have about our own sexuality.
And it’s exhausting and life-force draining, to be 100% truthful.
We ache for the passion that comes from lovemaking. For real. There is a literal experience of ecstasy that we need as humans. The health benefits are numerous and extensive. The mental health benefits even… are staggering. And don’t even get me started on the spiritual benefits…. That’s a whole other article there 😉
Passion is a rapturous human experience that makes us feel fully alive and connected to god.
It is holy, sacred, and to be held in intense honor.
Passion must be wielded, cultivated, and grown like any other force. We make ourselves vessels for it. The spirit of passion blesses our health, or lives, and our relationships when we can surrender to it and allow it to overtake us and our experiences. We surrender the mind and let instinct take over – we are dancing and communing with life in its deepest form. Raw, primal, intense and free.
The experience is fully yours and it is fully universal. You blend with your partner and the cosmos at large. Oneness. Nirvana. God. It can be felt in this way of having connected sex.
We women FEEL divinity. This is why it is so important to connect with our sexual/sensual natures. It will let all of our shame and guilt rise up to the surface so we can skim it off the top and let it burn away in the fires of awareness and compassion.
When we’ve done that, we will come to understand that:
Sex is sacred.
Sex is wholeness.
It is freedom, purity, and expression in all of its totality when you’ve removed the filters of abuse, mistreatment, and trauma.
Passion is love in action.
Passion is the power behind the greatest artists, inventors, scientists, and creatives of our time.
It is the lifeblood of all creation.
You are only operating with half the equation of you are trying to tap into your creativity and channel it, yet are repressing yourself sexually and muting your desires. You will find yourself stifled, stagnated, and flat out grumpy.
Give yourself the gift of your full sexual expression. You won’t regret it 🙂
