Vulnerability into Pleasure

vulnerability into pleasureVulnerability into Pleasure

Many people think tantra is just a term and an excuse to be sexual and erotic.
That is the furthest from the truth of what tantra truly is.
The purpose of tantra is not to be erotic
But to be loved.
How is tantra a path to feel love, but not feel erotic?
The answer is, it’s both.
Safety and love must come before feeling sexual, period.
If someone tries to feel erotic before feeling safe and love,
they’re skipping too many steps ahead.
Go back a few steps, and you might end up where you want to be.
Maybe you don’t need to feel safe.
Maybe you don’t have a single bone of softness in you.
Maybe you can jump into the sexual, before the sensual.
There is a layer of vulnerability there, you are unwilling to see.
Consider every human has fragile emotions.
You might just be covering yours up with erotic energy.
Slow down a little bit, and you’ll feel love energy.
Give your partner a chance to catch up to your sexual energy,
and you’ll both be a match
And intimate love will never be the same.

Do you feel anxious, irritable or frustrated?
What is it you are not letting yourself feel?
What are the feelings that are hiding underneath the surface?
What emotions are you hiding from?
What feelings popped up in a moment, and then went away soon after?
The pop up feelings are a clue. Dig deeper.
Surrender to them. Breathe into them. Feel them.
Notice. Investigate. Become a detective to your own feelings.
Is it anger? Breathe into anger.
Is it sadness? Breathe into sadness.
It is regret? Breathe into regret.
Is it despair? Breathe into despair.
Is it joy? Breathe into joy.
Is it love? Breathe into love.
Any feeling you feel, and breathe into, will make the feeling bigger, and either move through your body and let go, or feel more love, more joy, and more pleasure as you breathe into them.
Breathing into anger, despair, regret, sadness is loving them, and they will surrender, breathe through you, drop into nothingness, and transform into pleasure.
Tantra is a path of healing.
What is it you are healing today?
What parts of yourself are you expanding?
How will you shift vulnerability into pleasure today?

No one is ever going to be the same energy level at exactly
the same time every time you desire it.
Someone is going to have to slow down and be patient for the other.
It’s never about forcing someone to meet you where you are,
But always about surrendering to meet them where they are.
Are you surrendering to your Beloved?
Are you making them feel safe, or threatened?
Are you putting frustration onto them, or love?
Can you go deeper into surrender with yourself?
With your lover?
It just might turn your frustration into bliss.
Don’t forget to breathe.
The breath is the key!
It is your vehicle. Your teacher. Your friend. Your lover.
Your life force. Your heart. A connection to your soul
Something SO much bigger than you.
It is your gift!
And you have it with you all the time.

Note: Read this again after meditating, and it will make more sense!

Love, Asttarte

When it comes to trusting intuition, how do you know it is coming from a place of higher wisdom or from your mind? There is a fine distinction between listening to your hidden voice within, and the chattery thoughts that come in and out with that wisdom.

When you’re beginning the spiritual journey, or coming back to it after taking a break, listening to your “inner wisdom” can be tricky, yet, powerful once you take it seriously. The higher mind is always wanting to come through, and yet, we often allow our thoughts to control us and run the show!

Often when we hear self doubt, inner criticism, negative beliefs, or fears, we are in fact not listening to our “inner wisdom”, but instead our mind. Our mind often wants to run the show, so in order to shake off those thoughts, and get to the good stuff, our pure thoughts, wisdom and intuition, we must not let those doubts control us.

Intuition comes from practicing meditation, breathing into your body, breathing into your breath, hearing the little sounds, breathing deeper into your knowing, surrendering into the thoughts that show up, and continuing to breathe through your feelings, your thoughts, fears, judgments or other feelings that may come up. As one continues to breathe, they will begin to start to notice the subtle beauty inside their mind, hear the power that has been hidden underneath their insecurities or fears, and grow deeper into a knowing and a trust of something much bigger and greater than they are!

Trusting one’s intuition is a gift and beauty not to be taken for granted, and when one listen’s they will learn new facets of themselves, a greater love for them self, a greater peace in the all, and a stronger trust of the unknown. One may be guided to take a class, make a phone call, write that story, start a journal, begin a project, or rekindle a connection that had been absent from their life. One may learn the power of trusting, the value of meditation and the beauty of healing.

Intuition is not the same as meditation, however, in meditating, intuition becomes stronger. And the more you listen, the more you trust to listen more!
