The orgasmic peak of a sexual session is one of the most pleasurable experiences of life. During orgasm, the body relaxes, the senses open, and we can enter a state of connection with our partner. Orgasm is demonstrably beneficial for physical and emotional health and can relieve life's stresses as well as tension in a relationship. With all these benefits alone, we could be satisfied. Yet, what if I told you you could take it a step further? What if you collected and focused that orgasmic energy for other purposes?
Many esoteric practices and enlightenment programs speak to the power and even the necessity of controlling and harvesting orgasmic energy for spiritual purposes. The microcosmic orbit is a Taoist Qigong exercise designed to create a closed circuit in the body. By doing this, the sexual life force is built and retained for vitality and healing. Ancient cults and mystery schools have known and cultivated the power of sexual release since antiquity. Yet a lifetime...
Has dating been an exciting journey for you or more of a wild runaway train? While many people call it 'the dating game,' still others lament that it has become a hopeless lineup of frogs who never turn out to be princes (or princesses). Dating can be a complicated world, and being a conscious person doesn't necessarily make it any easier.
While, as conscious people, we spend years and lifetimes refining and developing our spiritual awareness and sense of well being, taking the high road in life can often make dating uniquely challenging. Conscious folks are often aware of many dimensions of reality and have come to realize that connecting with a partner will affect their energy field and life force in an intimate way. As a conscious person, you probably won't settle for just any suitor who comes along, as you are likely to be seeking profound, authentic, and elevated relationships.
Meeting conscious singles requires openness and willingness, self-awareness, and a few skills...
Every 29.5 days, we are given another chance. A fresh start with a pattern we would love to break. This gracious opportunity comes right on time with each New Moon. 12 to 13 times a year, we are gifted with such a moment. February 23rd is the day this time around. It occurs in early Pisces.
Aside from the basic energetics of tidal pull and the ebb and flows of qi through our lives, there are more complicated approaches to understanding the nuances of each lunation cycle. We do this by looking at the Moon's aspects to other planets. For instance, if a lunar cycle begins conjunct/or with Saturn, we could suspect heavy gravity and leaden feels throughout the cycle. If it were conjunct Jupiter, it could stretch our horizons into novel terrain, changing our perspective significantly. With this Moon, there are many favorable aspects to consider:
* It's close enough for a high five with Mercury who is currently retrograde, about to begin his own cycle three days after the New Moon
Throughout the month of February 2020, we have several dates with a profoundly significant!
The combination of 2’s and 0’s in these dates point to the entire month of February, the second month of the year 2020, being a window of opportunity for accessing heightened intuition, and masterfully co-creating with Spirit, blessings of light into your life.
This is significant in terms of the opportunity available in the month of February, but also shines an extra layer of insight into the opportunity available to us all throughout the year of 2020 as a whole.
The way I came to this conclusion, is through a combination of intuition and looking at the numerology
meaning of 2, and 0.

Each of us is born exquisite, creative, and so very alive. Like a nesting doll, this essential inner nature eventually finds itself encased in layers of time, age, growth, experiences, identity, and, ultimately, adulthood.
The inner child is a now-famous phrase describing that timeless, tender, loving, and vulnerable being we were in childhood. It is also the dynamic and true inner self who always seeks expression, connection, play, authenticity, and freedom. Sigmund Freud placed great importance on this presence within the psyche. It is one that survives within us into adulthood and throughout life.
Yet what if this inner self has suffered and not fully healed? The inner child will go to great lengths be expressed, remembered, or acted out in our adult lives and can compel us to weave patterns of dysfunction and pain into our adult relationships.
The Wounded Inner Child Wreaks Havoc on our Relationships
As we morph into this supposedly mature adult person,...
How would it feel if you could get more done while actually "doing" less? If you could double, even triple your income, by being more relaxed, incorporating more pleasure, and letting go of the constant "hustle til you die" grind?
It's commonly taught that to find success, whether that be with your business, your relationships, or well anything that we need to continually FORCE ourselves to do things that we don't always want to do. We glorify overdoing, overgiving, and overstressing to meet deadlines. We put force over ease, doing over non-doing, and stress over our inner fulfillment.
But how would it feel if you could let go of the stress of money running out or never having enough? If you could eliminate for good, this constant, nagging feeling of lack or never enough?
With some simple shifts in your ENERGY, you can tap into greater financial abundance than ever before. Accessing your feminine magnetism allows you to access just that.
Instead of being like a...
Experts in our culture are finally identifying the challenges and gifts that come with being an empath. In the fields of psychology and spiritual practice, leaders are speaking and writing about the reality of the empath as it becomes clear how it can overlap with codependency.
Are You an Empath?
Being an empath is defined by an individual who is more highly sensitive than the average person. An empath feels the world more deeply and can absorb the emotions and energy of others- even without it being their intention. For an empath, boundaries can be an issue, and there must be an emphasis on developing methods to center and protect the personal energy field. Beyond simply being able to feel the emotions of others, empaths are also highly intuitive. Empathic individuals will sense what is below the visible surface of expression. These combined qualities will make it difficult for an empath to be in crowded public places. It will also mean that empaths typically need a healthy...
Many of us study the healing properties of crystals and keep an altar, meditation has become so commonplace that mainstream scientific institutions are presenting research to validate its personal and worldwide benefits- there are even meditation apps easily accessible, and it is uncommon to meet anyone who hasn’t at least heard of Reiki, energy healing or chakras. No doubt about it, neo-spirituality as a focus and a lifestyle has only grown in influence since the ‘free love’ days of the 60s and 70s, the popularization of yoga from the 80’s through the present, and many worldwide esoteric lineages feeling the call to disseminate knowledge for the enlightenment of humanity and the good of the earth.
Perhaps one of the last and most central spiritual practices of our generation is to turn those spiritual realizations inward to shine the light into our most cherished relationships. Just like everyday life can begin to feel mundane or even like a constant...
When summer begins to surrender to fall, do you feel a slight melancholy watching the leaves fall and feeling warmth slipping away? When winter is in full effect and the earth seems in a deep sleep, do you also find yourself yearning for a deep and dream-filled rest? Have you noticed you feel more social in the bright and juicy months of summer? Or are you particularly more likely to deep clean your house and purge your belongings when the green buds appear on the trees, and you can open up the windows for the first time each spring?
Though our modern homes are well-equipped to protect us from the onslaught of the weather changes brought about by the seasons, we still instinctually respond to these natural transitions. Each season not only brings with it a change in weather conditions but energy unique unto itself. We feel it. We are much more like our ancestors than we may realize.
The Pagan Wheel of the Year
Though in our left-brained technological society, we often...
Although I escaped it quite a few years ago, my single friends tell me that the dating world can be quite a task to navigate. Rife with plenty of pitfalls from never hearing back from someone you were interested in being practically or literally stalked by someone you are not interested in, it’s quite hard to strike the right balance. Not to mention the existential quandary of whether that special soul, with whom you can share unique chemistry and relationship, will ever find their way to you or you to them.
It’s true, our human nature dictates us to crave connection, intimacy, and love. Yet many people go about it blindly and with little self-awareness or clear intention. Conscious dating is a philosophy, you could say, in which you bring the same mindfulness you cultivate in meditation, yoga, self-healing, or other spiritual practices, and weave it into your dating life.
By showing up prepared with self-awareness and some important interpersonal...
