Your Body is Your Holy Temple
To fully live a life you love, you must first understand the connection between mind, body, soul. This also applies to sacred love and sexuality. There is a deeper connection spiritually, sexually, and physically than just sex, physical pleasure, and our bodies as objects. It is first about being connected (or reconnecting) to your body, opening your heart up for true healing and love, accepting and learning your body, and about your sexual energy. In this article, we will focus on reconnecting to your body.
Many people are disconnected from their bodies and each other because they get stuck in their heads, stuck on autopilot not present in the here and now, and numbed out. For many women they can become disconnected for several reasons like being too exhausted raising a family, being in a long-term relationship and getting bored or lazy with your partner, being hyper-focused on your career, or the way they were raised gave them negative messages about sex and sensuality. For other women, they may have experienced sexual trauma and as a result disconnected from their bodies out of shame and guilt. When we reconnect back to ourselves, mind, body, spirit, and open up for deeper healing then we learn to see our bodies as a sacred temple and then we learn how to open up for true intimacy with ourselves and with others.
Before you can feel confident in your own skin, enjoy seduction, or love to share in a mutual, pleasurable sexual experience with your lover, you need to be fully connected with your own beautiful body temple, and with your sexual energy (your chi, which is life force energy). Your body is your holy temple and it was built to enjoy pleasure, so honor it! When we feel connected and sexy we feel alive, the energy runs through our entire body. We are able to feel and experience passion, deep intimacy, inspiration, play, and pleasure.
The Ritual & The Experience:
Pick a time and place where you can be uninterrupted and be alone. You are about to get reconnected with your body and reclaim that sexy, goddess inside. She wants to be liberated and rule her sensuality! She wants to be worshiped and tapped into her sexual energy!
If you find it difficult for you or uncomfortable stay with it for your breakthrough. Be aware of resistance and judgments as they come up and let them go because you deserve to feel confident and comfortable being the hot babe that you are. During this exercise simply allow pleasure to come through and shower yourself in compliments- truths about who you really are (a beautiful soul with a perfect body as we are all beautifully, and wonderfully made.)
Now let’s get started. Dim the lights, light some candles, and play some music that can encourage sensuality, eroticism, passion. You might even want to put some rose petals, or your favorite rose quartz crystals out too to add to a beautiful setting.
In front of a full-length mirror start to slowly take one piece of clothing off at a time. Notice how you move- slowly and gently. You can even have fun with it and look in the mirror winking at your sexy self while calling yourself one sexy b*tch! If you feel award remember your body is your holy, sacred temple and it’s beautiful, you are beautiful. You are amazing right now, and this is your show!
After you have slowly and gently removed all of your clothes begin to caress your skin. Notice how it feels. Notice how soft your skin is, how gentle the touch is to your body. Look at yourself in the mirror as you do this, and sincerely appreciate your body. Appreciate and acknowledge you’re the curves on your body. Compliment and give gratitude to each section of your body as you delicately caress it. Spend at least a minute at each section of your body looking while looking in the mirror adoring it and telling yourself at least one good thing about that body part.
Next, spend a few moments gazing into your own eyes. This exercise is known as eye gazing; you are looking into your soul through your own eyes. As you gaze into your own eyes, give yourself continuous loving, uplifting comments. Again, letting go of any resistance or negative and judgmental thoughts that may arise for you. Thank yourself for your sexy, goddess body temple and give gratitude, that you can give and receive pleasure with this body.
