WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Imagine living in a culture where sex was sacred and not a sin! The cultures that honored the divine feminine, existing for over 30,000 years, knew that our sexuality was a positive expression of the life force. Sexuality and spirituality were never seen as separate in these cultures, and only became split during the patriarchal era. The ancient cultures understood that sexual pleasure was a wonderful way to connect with spirit and renew life, as well as to unite deeply with another.
The life force energy was perceived as a pulsing spiral. This spiral of energy moves up and down our bodies, through all the energy centers (called chakras in Sanskrit) in a continuous, pulsing current. In essence, we are plugged into a cosmic “electric outlet” through the energy center near the top the head. Continuing the analogy to electricity, our bodies cannot function well if energy is not grounded firmly in the energy center near the base of the spine. The concept that we are more than mere physical bodies may be difficult to accept at first, but we are, in fact, an organized combination of several energy systems surrounding a unifying field. If we could perceive the subtle energy around us, each of us would look somewhat like a “luminous egg.”
There are transcendental sexual experiences that produce a sense of merging with this source of energy, losing physical boundaries at the moment of orgasm. This is often described as “being in the moment of boundless bliss”. Many ancient and modern visionary experiences have been described as feelings of being “bathed in pure light.” This is cosmic orgasm, the direct experience of the self as pure energy, in union with a divine source.
Developing conscious rituals and meditation techniques can sometimes allow you to be more open to such transcendent experiences. Although you do not have to spend years in training to experience spontaneous, spiritual sex, it may be necessary to be receptive to the possibility of connecting higher states of awareness with peak sexual experiences.http://www.drnorthrup.com/womenshealth/healthcenter/topic_details.php?topic_id=71
