Occupying your organic and orgasmic life has a way of BEing good for the planet and sexy at the same time!!
My inspiration for this article came from a Google Alert on sexuality. What did we do before Google? In Auckland, New Zealand, there was a Sexuality and Consciousness Symposium in March, 2012. The aim of this event was to help people overcome guilt, shame and fear. The organizers wrote, "We are exploring the nature of healthy sexuality. The world is full of misinformation on who we are as sexual beings." How true this is!
One of the presenters, Baba Dez Nichols, expressed the following in defining healthy sex. "A healthy sense of sexuality is important because it allows us to be in control and occupy ourselves. Sex is our life force and when we are filled with guilt, shame and fear, which can hold us back, we have no power."
There are three things I love about this statement.
1-allows us to occupy ourselves
2-is our life force
3-when repressed, strips our power
Let's look at these one at a time, beginning with number 3.
What happens when we repress our natural sexual feelings? Our bodies are more tense which depletes our energy. It takes energy to hold your muscles tense all day and night. When we do not have a healthy expression of our sexuality, we also anger and frustrate more easily. Anytime an emotion or feeling is repressed, bad things happen. I know this so well from personal experience with inflammation and pain throughout my body due to suppressed anger. Understanding and mastering my sexuality has not only given me relief from stress and tense muscles, but it has been an amazing form of healing as well.
The National Institute of Health claims that 70% of our health issues are stress based. A healthy and satisfying sex life relieves stress and creates a natural harmony within your body. Sex is our life force. After all, other than a small percentage of mothers who were inseminated with sperm, most of us are walking around on the planet because somebody had sex. That is a pretty strong argument that sex is, indeed, our life force…without it, we would not even be here. I am certain mastering our sexuality can provide medicine that would most likely help the 70% of stress-based diseases.
Now, my favorite point from the New Zealander's point of view is that healthy sexuality allows us to occupy ourselves. I would say, it allows us to occupy our body instead of our mind with a pleasure surge that is good for us, our relationships and our planet.
My BEST strategy for occupying my body goes like this:
Breathe – deeply into the lower belly
Embrace – give myself a big hug
Smile – feel into my inner sexual sensation
Think – organic and orgasmic moment
The BEST strategy applies to any activity you may be engaging in…there is always a way to make it organic and orgasmic.
Apply the BEST strategy today, and let me know what how it feels to occupy your life by living in your magnificent body.
