Sexual Healing

There is a form of healing and counseling that is effective for bringing healing and balance to our life, via our root chakra, which includes sexual shame. Yet, despite the success of “sexual therapy,” it is still frowned upon by so-called open-minded healers and therapists.
Despite the controversy and edginess of the subject matter, there are several boundaries and precautions that distinguish true sexual therapy from being just a healthy, or unhealthy, sexual experience. Although some individuals would prefer to jump straight into learning sacred sexuality, it’s always best to look at one’s personal issues around sexuality first. In most cases, there are three phases of sexual therapy and should follow this order: 1. Counseling 2. Contact (hands-on) Therapy 3. Sacred Sexuality.

If there is any concern about potential sexual issues, inhibitions and/or abuse, the counseling phase should be experienced first. Then, the individual would move into the second phase, which might include physical bodywork, sensual massage and even exercises in arousal.

Sexual healing is not as rare as you might imagine. In a sense, you are offering a form of sexual therapy whenever you compliment and encourage someone’s beauty or value, because the definition of sexual therapy begins with “awakening one’s desire to “feel alive” and/or awaken their sensual self but with no agenda nor shame.” It’s just another avenue of performing ”random acts of kindness” in content but without judging the form it takes.

Some goals and benefits of sexual therapy include releasing trauma, restoring the bodies normal functions, releasing unhealthy inhibitions, releasing shame and allowing a greater sense of self-esteem and personal beauty.

Who is it that does sexual therapy? There are counselors who specialize in this field as well as individuals who have studied the arts of sacred sexuality. The latter group are wonderful but having a background in the psychology of trauma is highly recommended. You can also have your partner learn some of the exercises to help you along.

There are some hazards and potential pitfalls for having a friend or therapist do the work. If things go well, the therapist often becomes the object of transference, which means that the client believes that their new-found awakening is to be attached to the healer. On the other hand, if deep wounds are awakened, and a friend or partner is assisting the process, then the recipient of sexual therapy might project some of their hurt and rage onto the friend. This, of course, could ruin their relationship. It is also possible to have a mixture of these two pitfalls.

Although there are precautions you can take to avoid the pitfalls of sexual therapy, with such a taboo subject that embodies so many deep issues, there are no guarantees.

In the end, if you can find the courage to walk through the gauntlet of sexual healing, the rewards are countless and far reaching. The pace, of course varies from person to person but the ultimate goal is to experience Divine Union with God, your inner and physical self, and potentially with a partner.

Sexual healing can mean the release of shame, guilt, tension and pain and the awakening of unconditional love and self-worth–physically, emotionally and spiritually. As each person heals these issues for themselves, they also do it for all.age someone’s beauty or value, because the definition of sexual therapy begins with “awakening one’s desire to “feel alive” and/or awaken their sensual self but with no agenda nor shame.” It’s just another avenue of performing ”random acts of kindness” in content but without judging the form it takes.
