Awakening – Tantra & The Collective Evolution of Human Sexuality

Dear Friends,
allow me to express my bliss, my gratitude and happiness about the ripple effect of discussion, my last few posts regarding our human sexuality have created within the Facebook community. I love to watch when a theme comes up for the human collective and one little impulse, turns into a full exploration of the many dimensions humans have experienced on this particular theme. Shows all the ideas and concepts we are called to heal and gives us the chance to take another leap of faith into the unknown. Well, we are the once we have been waiting for. The time and energies have chosen, the timing is “NOW”!!! We shift another little step deeper into the Golden Age of Aquarius and the openness for a new human sexuality, within a new relationship paradigm. The first brave warriors, men and women have stepped up and spoken out for us, so we can collectively be courageous and find true authentic, personal sexual expression.  Which by the way is the energy field, the upcoming Full Moon is reinforcing ;-)!! One way to go, are the teachings and studies of Tantra.
Tantra was originally created by yogic masters to shatter any preoccupation with the ego and transform feelings of “lower frequencies” like anger, rage, frustration, hate, greed or jealousy into unconditional love. By training and disciplined practice of tools like conscious breathing, meditation techniques, control of sexual energy in order to channel it into energy for conscious co-creation of the web of life. Living a tantric inspired live, leads to constant transformation of our consciousness to higher and more refined levels of our divine expression on earth. In practicing Tantra the individual develops a feeling for “the one holy spirit” unfolding into “the many materialized existences”.
Liberation from suffering and separation is achieved, when we traverse this path backward: from the seemingly many we find materialized – all the way back to THE ONE. To study, contemplate, become and then share the teachings in life, creates a natural respect for all living beings. A deeper awareness of the natural rhythms and cycles of your physical body, and the energetic bodes surrounding us. And, this finding of “the One behind the Many” is only possible while we are in the physical body. In fact, our body is the loving, secure vessel with boundaries – available for you as personal sacred space. That’s the reason why Tantra, in opposite to the most spiritual practices, is actively using the physically body for healing. Involving breathing, sound, movement and understanding of the sacred masculine and sacred feminine sexual energies as training’s tools.ChacrasThe text is an extract from Lao Tzu’s Hua Hu Ching. Enjoy!!!
A person’s approach to sexuality is a sign of their level of evolution. ‘Un-evolved’ persons practice ordinary sexual intercourse. Placing all emphasis upon the sexual organs, they neglect the body’s other organs and systems. Whatever physical energy is accumulated is summarily discharged, and the subtle energies are similarly dissipated and disordered. It is a great backward leap. For those who aspire to the higher realms of living, there is an angelic dual cultivation. Because every portion of the body, mind, and spirit yearns for the integration of yin and yang, angelic intercourse is led by the spirit rather than the sexual organs. Where ordinary intercourse is effort-full, angelic cultivation is effortless, relaxed, quiet, and natural.
Where ordinary intercourse unites sex organs with sex organs, angelic cultivation unites spirit with spirit, mind with mind, and every cell of one body with every cell of the other body. Culminating not in dissolution but in integration, it is an opportunity for a men and women to mutually transform and uplift each other into the realm of bliss and wholeness. The sacred ways of angelic intercourse are taught only by one who has himself achieved total energy integration, and taught only to students who follow the Integral Way with profound devotion, seeking to purify and pacify the entire world along with their own being. However, if your virtue is especially radiant, it can be possible to open a pathway to the subtle realm and receive these celestial teachings directly from the immortals.

Here are some simple steps to start with:
1. Ask yourself what you need
Our collective world is so full of mixed signals about sexuality, it is hard for the most untrained people to truly feel their own sexuality. Billboards are selling us daily just about every product on earth, thru sexual expression or presentation of their models – while for example breast feeding in public is considered “out of order” in most western societies. Well thing is, the true capacity of physical satisfaction the human sexuality has, unfolds only when we are feeling safe, feeling heard, feeling seen in our wholeness, and respected in our boundaries! And how could that possible happen, if we don’t know this details first?

2. Practice Deep Breathing
I recommend before you do any practice exchange with your partner or people you know, practice for a little while the art of conscious breathing separated from another. That will give you a good foundation to start with. If your practice goes as far as physical love making, get in the habit of slowing down and resonating with your partner by breathing together first. Conscious sexuality is not about the orgasm. It’s not even about intercourse. When we focus our attention on the breath, we move out of a goal oriented, physical process and into a more ‘feeling state’ connected to the subtle, non-linear, energetic body.yogi3. Agree on the Ground Rules
Prior to entering into a sexual relationship, have a conscious dialogue around basics such as sexually transmitted diseases, what type of birth control you’ll use and even what happens if you do get pregnant. Also speak about the difference in how it feels to practice sexuality with or without condom. And decide from there, how you will create your encounters. If you find yourself having trouble discussing touchy subjects with your partner, it’s a strong indication that there is not enough care, friendship, emotional connection or psychological development between you. In other words, if you can’t be honest about your needs or truth, ask yourself why? And if you than really feel safe enough to explore and expand your own inner world, while being in the presence of this person.

I hope this little set of insights allowed you to see that in traditional Tantra the focus is not at all on sexuality, but on the unification of body, mind, soul & spirit under consideration of the internal divine feminine and divine masculine existence. With some devotion and practice it can become your individual link to your personal divine guidance and even beyond, to a conscious manifestation of your souls deepest dreams and desire. Maybe a post of simple exercises to start with will follow in the coming days, in case I feel inspired by your responds ;-). See if you can get in touch with feeling inspired by “THE NEW”… just approach it as a game… there is no right or wrong, just personal authentic truth of what we really feel and need.
Love and Blessings
Edith
