What would you look like if you were to let 100% of your sexual energy flow through you, right now?
Perhaps an image comes to mind that makes you smile. You wouldn’t be alone if you imagine a writhing, screaming, thrusting porn star, which may not be ‘appropriate’ if you are reading this at work.
But I want you to go deeper with that thought. Feel your sexual energy—that strong, connecting, fertile, confidant, hormone-releasing, loving energy—rising out of the center of your body, filling you. You know intuitively how much is deep inside you. What would it feel like and look like if you were to open the doors wide and let your entire being fill with that energy?
Most of the time we massively restrain the sexual energy inside us, to our detriment. But that isn’t surprising in our present day culture. All our social myths and constraints act to limit the amount of sexual energy we allow ourselves to feel—and express.
Even behind closed doors we rarely, if ever, allow FULL, 100% sexual energy out.
If the thought of letting 100% of your sexual energy flow out through your mind and body makes you uncomfortable, you are not alone.
But sexual energy is life energy. It is the root creative power of all life. It is divinely connected and tremendously fertile in every way. It is good for us. It is ‘food’ for us. It is healing and joy-inducing. It has the power to create lovely, positive, confidant shifts in our ‘wiring’. And when embraced in a way that is honoring of others, it is always positive.
How much sexual energy is flowing out of you at this moment?
When Willow and I first asked this question of each other we both went blank for a moment, then, after feeling into it, had to admit it wasn’t much higher than 10%.
We, like most people, were not trained to tap into this energy. Or to allow it to flow more freely.
So we challenged each other to express 100% of our sexual energy, right then.
A warning if you try to do this with a partner: it may induce laughter!
But a good kind of laughter.
Like anything, it is productive at first to exaggerate all actions, sounds, expressions, etc, that want to come out. There is no ‘right’ expression, of course. It may evoke a powerful stillness. What comes through you will be as unique as the person you are. Just let it flow! Play with it!
As humorous as our expression began, the process was extremely instructive and liberating for us.
Two points to make from this.
One, feeling into (being mindful of) our sexual energy allows us to release more of this energy within us during the ‘routine’ moments of every day. The energy will make us more confident, connected and creative at all times.
Two, exploring what 100% sexual energy flow looks and feels like with a trusted partner helps us experience the full potential of this divinely-gifted power inside us.
Willow and I still have lots to learn about releasing all that powerful, positive energy.
So we encourage ourselves, along with you, to... let ‘er rip
