Sexual energy is the energy of life itself. It is the source of all creation and the essence of the universe. It has always been a quest for humanity, to harness this sexual energy and use it to transform higher states of consciousness.
The desire for sexual expression is by far the strongest and most impelling of all the human emotions, and for this very reason this desire, when harnessed and transmuted into action, other than that of physical expression, may raise one to the status of a genius”- Napoleon Hill
According to Napoleon, the term ‘genius’ can be characterized simply by ones ability to “increase the vibrations of thought to the point where one can freely communicate with sources of knowledge not available through the ordinary rate of vibration of thought”.
Therefor, by harnessing this libido energy rather than exasperating it during sexual intercourse or masturbation, we can wield it into a creative power that elevates our consciousness.
Now having said that let’s be honest, for the most of us were not going to just stop doing it. Especially, if we are not at the point in our spiritual journey that calls for a period of celibacy as found in many shamanic practices as well as other religious and spiritual teachings…
So what can we do to still get the benefits, without diving full fledge into abstinence?
1. Set Your Focus
We all require some type of external stimuli, whether this is just a memory or visualization in your head, we all need something to focus on. Instead of your usual pornography or fantasy, set your intention on something more creative and incorporate the law of attraction into your practice.
For example, you’d love that promotion at work, or you liked how you created with another person or several people and everything just seemed to flow. Anything, get creative! Set your goal of what you want to achieve… and “birth it into creation” so to speak.
It is the most powerful energy in the entire universe, use it to your advantage.
2.” Ankh” it
Ancient Egyptians, believed that the orgasm was the key that lead to eternal life and in the Kaballah, it is believed that sexual desire is the deepest of spiritual expression. Yogic philosophy also maintains the understanding that when the dormant sexual energy is awoken it will ignite the kundalini in the spine and activate the entire chakra system. What differs between these practices, is that the Egyptians believed that orgasm is really quite healthy and necessary for the Mer-ka-ba or light body, while others practice control of orgasm in order to prevent ejaculation.
While the ancient teaching to ankh the energy is quite complex, and most of us don’t actually own an “ankh”, an easy way to ensure energy re-circulation without loss is by simply placing your left hand (right hand if you’re left-handed) over your sacral chakra while masturbating. In the same fashion in which we collect Qi energy then take your hand and place it on your chakra and begin circling. (rub the area just below your naval in a circular motion).
Women start your first circle upwards towards the heart and men downwards towards the root. You will find with this technique, that your orgasms become more potent and fulfilling all the while ensuring proper energy flow.
Traditional Chinese healing has always involved putting energy in and collecting energy through the sacral (the area just below/at the naval).
When you are finished, keep your hand over your sacral chakra and hold it for up to 2 minutes. This will allow for the energy to be replaced as well as any energy expelled to be recovered.
Now what are you waiting for you horny buggers.
