Taoism is a spiritual tradition that disrupts our sexual appetite and uses it within our bodies as a power for healing and spiritual development. Want is a rich and potent part of our individual experience. The Taoists think of desire, called sexual energy or jing chi, as part of our life energy, or chi. To be passionate is always to be full of chi. The English words”want” or”fire” connote a feeling of yearning and fervor which includes gender, but they also represent our most powerful feelings of life.
When we are enthusiastic about anything–our family, our work, our spirituality, a significant social cause–we are investing our chi in this experience. Our passion is what moves us to action and ultimately is what gives us pleasure. We’re enthusiastic about the things that matter most to us.
We frequently speak of”becoming horny” as if we were being occupied by some lewd, demonic (notice the horns) force. Nevertheless, the effective energy of stimulation is essential to our humanity. It’s not, as conservative religious thinkers have taught, a dark force that divides us from God, but is the nature of what can induce us to live energetic and fruitful lives. It is the fact that sexual energy is so powerful that has prompted many major religions to control and restrict sexual behavior, especially the behavior of women. Reestablishing our relationship with our desire a part of recovering our personal power.
Once you have awakened your passion, or sexual vitality, the Healing Love techniques, as taught by world-renowned Taoist master, Mantak Chia, will instruct you how to direct and refine your sexual energy so that you can gain from its own gifts.
Although our contemporary world suffers from ignorance about sexuality on the one hand and blatant manipulation of sexuality on another, Healing Love offers a several-thousand-year-old wisdom about how to reside within our bodies as sexual beings and to use our fire to become the people we wish to be.
Taoist Secrets of Sexuality
Taoism is the foundation of Chinese philosophy and medicine.
It’s a comprehensive physical and spiritual system which aids individuals to reach their highest potentials. It is perhaps best known in this state as the foundation for Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes acupuncture, herbal therapy, nutrition, massage, and the lively meditation named Chi Kung (pronounced”chee kong”), and the martial art called Tai Chi Chuan (“tie chee chwan”). The Universal Tao system was developed by Mantak Chia to teach Taoist meditative and workout techniques to balance the body and increase and refine one’s vital energy, or chi (“chee”). The sexual practice, or Healing Love, is an essential part of this system.
“Chi,” the Chinese word for life , is the power within our own bodies and within the world which engenders life. The term itself has many translations, such as electricity, air, breath, wind, or vital essence. There are 49 cultures across the world that understand the notion of chi in one type or another; illustrations include Ki (Japanese), Prana (Sanskrit), Lung (Tibetan), Neyatoneyah (Lakota Sioux), Num (Kalahari Kung), and Ruach (Hebrew).
“Western culture” and allopathic medication, frequently called Western or conventional medication, is among the few cultures that does not have a similar concept, though it recognizes the role of energy at the molecular level.
Western medication is very effective for treating acute disease and traumatic injuries. However, I think that it is, in part, the absence of the concept of”life force” that limits its effectiveness in treating chronic ailments. Western medicine is just starting to comprehend what the Taoists have known for more than 2,000 years, that directing the flow of our life force, our chi, may enhance our health and energy.
Activating and Moving Your Energy
In The Multi-Orgasmic Woman you can learn to utilize your concentration and your breath to activate and transfer your energy; this clinic is named Chi Kung.
It involves both immersion exercises and simple movements to facilitate the circulation of chi. Used during China and currently widely practiced in the United States, Chi Kung is an ancient and effective practice for several health issues. I frequently refer to this Healing Love sexual activity as”Chi Kung for your bedroom”
When you become conscious of your chi, you’ll discover that it’s quite easy to detect and sense it. Try this simple exercise. Briskly rub your palms together till you create heat. Now slowly separate your palms until they are about an inch apart. You should feel a”cushion” of air between them that may feel like heat, pressure, or tingling. This sensation is the chi departure between your palms.
In all traditions meditative practices calm and focus the mind. The Healing Tao meditative practices do so by focusing on the movement of chi. The fundamental practice is predicated on circulating chi through a body circuit called the Microcosmic Orbit, which is like a power superhighway in the body. The Microcosmic Orbit runs out of your tailbone up your spine to your brain (the Back Channel) and then returns down the front of your entire body in the midline (the Front Channel). By using the attention of your mind, you can steer the chi up the spine as you breathe and let it”fall” down the Front Channel to your stomach as you breathe out.
Transferring Your Sexual Energy
As you become adept at sensing and moving your chi, you’ll also have the ability to move your sexual energy, or jing chi, at the same pathway. The capability to expand and transfer your sexual energy is what enables you to increase your pleasure and enhance your orgasms, regardless of what your current level of sexual experience is. It also lets you transform your sexual energy into chi, or life force, which will give you a fantastic deal more energy from the bedroom as you live your daily life in the world. And whenever your chi is strong and your goal is apparent, your chi is transformed into spiritual energy or shen.
The Recovery Love practices are powerful and rich enough to do for hours every day, but adaptable enough to energize you or help relieve physical or emotional stress in moments. The sensual practices initially take a while to comprehend and feel in your body, but they could then be seamlessly integrated into lovemaking with astounding results: much more joy, intimacy, and vibrancy than you have ever experienced.
The Taoist practice delivers a practical method to access and incorporate the two most powerful healing forces in the world: real love and sexual energy. These practices can raise your pleasure and enhance your body and soul.
