Irrational fear of Tantra

Updated: Jun 15

The word Tantra still scares people in Western culture. There is much shame around spirituality and genitals. It is like the two are from the opposite place. It seems as if the mind and heart's spiritual nature links one to heaven whilst the genitals link or even send one to hell. But those statements couldn't be further from the truth.

The journey of transformation, liberation, and expansion are deeply tied to erotic energies. Erotic energy is often thought to be a powerful force that can be used for personal growth and transformation. In spiritual traditions, it is often associated with the divine or the sacred, and is believed to be connected to the creative power of the universe.

Many spiritual practices, such as yoga, meditation, and certain forms of ritual, are believed to help individuals connect with and harness their erotic energy, which can lead to a deeper sense of empowerment and/or a profound connection to spirit or Christ energy. This might involve learning to channel the energy in a positive way to become more self-aware and connected to oneself, others, and the universe.

Erotic empowerment is not just about sexual expression but also about tapping into and harnessing the energy to empower oneself in all areas of life, such as personal growth, creativity, motivation, and purpose.

Intelligent erotic energy creates new life via spontaneous attraction to the next state of being. And as such, this attraction shows up in divine desire. Not to be confused with limited desire.

If there were a hell, the pathway would be paved with limited desire. Limited desire is that which reinforces one's trauma wounding vs one's original dream/divine essence/soul story.

Tantric healing is a holistic approach to addressing issues related to sexual energy and emotional/sexual trauma. Rooted in the ancient practice of Tantra, which focuses on sacred sexuality, this alternative healing practice is becoming increasingly accepted in modern culture as the taboo surrounding sexuality and the body lessens.

Neo-Tantra, also known as Western Tantra or Modern Tantra, adapts the principles of traditional Tantra to the needs of contemporary people. Unlike traditional Tantra, which aims for spiritual enlightenment through the union of the individual self with the divine, Neo-Tantra is focused on using the principles of Tantra to help people achieve greater personal growth and well-being.

However, there are practitioners such as myself who combine elements of both tantric and neo-tantric practices to bring about a transcendent connection between self and the divine.

Tantra is an esoteric science that has been practiced for centuries in Eastern cultures, but it has only recently begun to gain popularity in the West. The word "Tantra" comes from the Sanskrit word "tan", which means to expand or to extend. The word "tra" specifically refers to a "tool" or "technique" which is used in the process of expanding the consciousness. Therefore, the word "Tantra" can be translated as "tool for expansion" or "technique for liberation".

In the context of healing, Tantra is used to discover, release, and clear the energetic knots resulting from sexual trauma and emotional wounding. These knots or blockages can manifest as physical discomfort, pain, or numbness and can lead to low libido and a loss of desire and satisfaction with sex and intimacy. Through techniques such as hands-on energy healing, Tantric Healing seeks to activate and stimulate energy flow and release these blockages, restoring the natural flow of sexual energy.

My primary focus is to help release blockages that limit one’s awareness and connection to the sacred divine, to the mystical and radiant being you inherently are. This means clearing up physical and energetic blockages that may have arrived as trauma response armor and boundaries.

One of the key principles of Tantra is the understanding of the connection between the physical and energetic bodies. The human body is not just a physical vessel but also a complex network of energy pathways. When these pathways are blocked or disrupted, it can lead to physical, emotional, and psychological issues. Tantric healing works to clear these blockages, promoting the free flow of energy and healing the body on a deeper level.

The practice of Tantra also includes a focus on the connection between the individual and the divine. One of the goals of Tantra is to transcend the ego and to connect with a higher power. By connecting with this higher power, individuals can gain a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them. This can lead to a greater sense of inner peace, which can help to release the emotional and psychological blockages that contribute to the knots in the flow of sexual energy.

Tantra-based healing can be a powerful tool for promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. People can benefit from it by overcoming sexual or emotional difficulties such as low libido, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, vaginal pain or dryness, building deeper connections with partners, and experiencing greater intimacy and emotional closeness. Additionally, it can be beneficial for self-discovery and emotional healing, helping to heal traumas, and building emotional intelligence whilst gaining sensitivity, empathy, and increasing self-awareness.

Tantric healing is performed in a variety of settings, including one-on-one sessions with a trained practitioner, workshops, and group sessions. The process of healing is unique to everyone, and it may involve a combination of different techniques depending on the specific issues that need to be addressed. Techniques may include hands-on healing, hands-off healing, meditation, visualization, and breathwork.

It is important to note that tantric healing is not about having sexual intercourse and does not focus on one’s genitals. It is about discovering and releasing the energy knots in your body that might have been caused by sexual traumas or emotional wounds, so the energy can flow again freely. Tantric healing sessions are safe and include an experienced and trained practitioner who will guide you through the process, creating a safe and comfortable environment for you to heal. Always research your practitioner.

Overall, Tantra-based healing can be a valuable tool for women or men who are looking to improve their physical and emotional well-being, overcome sexual and emotional difficulties, and experience deeper levels of self-awareness and personal growth. It can provide a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to explore their sexuality, without fear of shame or guilt.
