I wanted to continue the conversation from last week...
I used to be a Pure Romance consultant.
I used to be one of those women giving up my weekends to...
1) Showcase Pure Romance products
2) Empower women to be and feel sexy
3) Teach women about their bodies
4) Make some extra money
My tagline for my Pure Romance business was...
"Keeping married women married and single women safe!"
Well I believed in that 120%. I can see now how I made the transition into teaching divinity so easily. Sexuality and spirituality go hand-in-hand!
While selling Pure Romance products, I realized that a lot of women have NO IDEA what is/was going on with their bodies. They have no idea why their bodies do what they do. Some had no idea that they too were supposed to enjoy sex. A lot of women had no idea how to take basic care of their vagina's or how they work.
(And no, Irish Spring soap should NOT come close to your yoni! Why do you think Monistat has stayed in business so long??)
And to make this a tad bit more thorough (and because ALL women need to know) read about what's really going on in your panties!
Woman take their sex life and body for granted and then wonder why, 20 years from now why they dislike themselves and have a sad sex life.
Understanding what our bodies do is of utmost importance.
Ladies, our bodies are powerful!!!
Please stop giving away your power.
And not to suggest that men are any better, because they're just as clueless....
They too have no idea about their bodies either. They don't understand the power within their semen. They don't understand the importance of their prostate. And sadly, for most men their sex life sux as well after 20 years of abusing it.
Warriors, basketball/football players, and soldiers all know the importance of NOT having sex before they have to perform. Men... your power lies between your legs as well. Why do you think "they" want you to waste your sperm? Why do you think that "they" want to keep you weak and vulnerable all the time? When you spill your seed, you release your power. Period.
Men please read The Truth About Semen.
Ok, so what does sexuality have to do with spirituality??
According to health-science-spirit.com
"Sexuality is closely related to spirituality in several ways. In its negative aspects of lust, sexual excess, degradation and rape, it appears as the antithesis of spirituality, and in this light it has been seen in the Christian tradition. However, in its positive aspects our sexuality can open our heart to love, and enable us to have experiences similar to meditative states and mystical bliss during or instead of an orgasm and its afterglow. In a less obvious way, sexual energies can be channeled upward to develop our energy centers or chakra system and higher energy bodies. According to esoteric and yoga teachings, this is all part of our spiritual evolution." read more here.
Learning about our bodies and our sexuality goes hand-in-hand with learning about our spirituality.
Suffering sexually definitely leads to suffering spiritually.
Release is necessary.
Meditation is necessary.
And ladies, ”Enlightenment is in the vagina”
This comes from an actual phrase in Sanscrit that states: "Buddhatvam Yosityonisamasritam." which can be translated as: ”Enlightenment is in the female sexual organ(s)”. Yes, ladies... enlightenment is within us.... literally!!
Even Deepak Chopra suggests that,
"True intimacy is union between flesh and flesh, between subtle body and subtle body, between soul and soul. Sexual energy is sacred energy. When we have restored the sexual experience to the realm of the sacred, our world will be chaste and divine, holy and healed."
I'm always reading something new. Most of the things I read are either geared to spirituality or sexuality in one way or another. Whether its my favorite author's Eric Jerome Dickey's ebook The Education of Nia Simone Bijou to Charlotte Sophia Kasl's website on Sexuality, Spirituality and Relationships - A guide to bringing them together in our lives, it all has to do with knowing ourselves, loving ourselves and bringing our sex and spirit life together.
That's the truth of the matter.
And for those that don't know or understand... think about what happens when you or someone else "catch's" the Holy Ghost.... it's pretty similar to an orgasm right??
