In and of itself, the human body is a neutral space.
Society, its beliefs, and teachings create any labels that are attached to it. We are all naturally different in shapes, sizes, races, creeds, and colours.
We are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandmothers, and grandfathers. We are activists, innovators, achievers, and inspirations. No culture, company, or concept could therefore ever hope to define beauty or its expression through sex and sensuality, for these qualities are as multifaceted as we are.
Our bodies are the physical shells that allow us to radiate our inner experiences and accomplishments into the world. They showcase our happiest and most incredible experiences for all to share—the remarkable and intoxicating experience of being alive.
And they are also the way our souls get to interact physically with the world in all its wonder. I think that it is tremendously empowering for women to discover their inner goddess, and it is not diminishing in any way. Any woman who is in control, who is in touch with her femininity and sensuality, is a woman who’s empowered.
Through our bodies, we can express our divine and innate sexuality:
>> by celebrating the connection between sex and sensuality
>> by reclaiming our bodies as the miracles they are, rather than being ashamed of them
>> by balancing the feminine and masculine energies (the yin and the yang) in ourselves
From a very early age, most of us have been taught to repress our emotions and desires. We are told not to cry, not to express ourselves publicly, and to be ashamed of our sexuality. All this suppressed energy can remain stuck in the sacral chakra where it causes imbalances.
On a personal scale, these imbalances can manifest themselves as experiences such as depression, shame, and broken relationships, while the ripple effect means that our personal hang-ups can affect society as a whole.
It takes great strength to keep being naturally sensual and sexual in a world that often pushes us toward robotic perfection.
Yet when we see someone who is comfortable in their own body as it is, and who radiates confidence without needing other people’s approval, what could be more beautiful and sexy than that?
