cultivating erotic energy - our most powerful tool for personal growth
Life is energy. We are energy, and we were all born from sexual energy, that core of fire within that burns to have experiences, to connect, to create, to bloom, to feel pleasure and joy. Our sexuality is an intrinsic part of who we are, and connecting to our erotic energy invites joyful living, bringing pleasure and aliveness into our life experience and our relationships. It’s not just about getting turned on sexually, but getting turned on to life- creatively, sensually, intellectually, and by making a difference in the world.
Humans are made to experience pleasure. Pleasure nurtures and heals. It alters blood chemistry and enhances brain function. Pleasure invites connection, building trust and resiliency. Allowing and experiencing pleasure is an invitation to express our true selves with courage, passion and creativity.
Unfortunately, limits to pleasure are pervasive in a culture that shames sexuality and fails to teach us how to honor and celebrate our creative, generative, life-force energy. We have been taught that sexual energy is dirty or wrong; something to be hidden and ignored. Suppressing our erotic energy means that we are disconnected from the source of power and vitality that is our birthright.
Connecting to our erotic energy invites us to flourish by expanding our inner awareness, our feelings of worthiness, and our trust in ourselves and in the world around us. It empowers us to live our best, most creative and fulfilling life, engaging our creative, generative energy in service of our life’s purpose.
Sexual energy is natural, innocent and good. Erotic energy moving through the body can feel like gentle warmth, shivering or tingling. It can be profoundly relaxing, hugely arousing, or sweetly satisfying - as subtle as champagne bubbles or big, pulsing and enlivening. When we allow our erotic energy to flow, we experience greater connection to self, others and the Divine. Cultivating our erotic energy opens us to inspiration and insight, and invites feelings of peace happiness and well-being.
Our erotic energy is a powerful resource we can use to expand our lives physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, allowing us to offer our best, most authentic selves to the world.
