What we know now as Tantric sex, or sacred sexuality, is a set of practices that may go back 5,000 years. These practices have made their way into sacred Hindu texts and Taoist teachings. They fuse the arts of enlightenment and love-making so that the latter becomes a vehicle for connecting with Divinity.
Westerners in the 60’s and 70’s adopted a few of these methods, adapting them to 20th century culture, with great success. One famous Guru who taught some of them was Osho. Mantak Chia, Author of The Multi-Orgasmic Couple and other books, brought Taoist sacred sexuality to the West through a series of teachings as well.
In India, Radha and Krishna and Shiva and Shakti are the Divine Couples. They represent the Divine Union between Devotee and the Source of All Love. There is a merging process that unites the two. Using sacred sexuality techniques is an ecstatic way to emulate this Union.
Here, we’ll reveal a few practical exercises you can do with your lover so you can experience this same Union…
Eye gazing is a great way to clear emotional baggage and fear that can prevent intimacy. It’s like candle flame or moon Trataka (gazing) meditation, but with a partner. Singles can use a mirror instead.
Read on to learn eye gazing, and two more Tantric secrets to activating your sexual power...
Part of the merging process between lovers is to match vibrations. The breath is a rhythm you can start with. You can combine this exercise with the Eye Gazing Meditation and do it with or without clothing.
Embrace each other and look into each other’s eyes. Breathe deeply so that the abdomen expands in all directions. Try to “feel” your partner’s breath and match the frequency and amplitude.
The contractions of orgasm become a lot more intense when you learn to breathe deeply, whether you’re male or female. By default, we tend to tense up and breathe shallowly, or we forget to breathe. This restricts the proper flow of blood you need for mind blowing climaxes.
When you get near that magic moment, be sure to breathe diaphragmatically. Breathe through the nose. On the inhale, let your abdomen expand in all directions, like a balloon. You’ll feel it in the back, the belly and the groin. This may delay the climax, but it’ll be soooooooooo worth it.
Tulsi (Holy Basil) is known for working with the Heart Chakra to increase loving compassion. It’s also a natural libido-booster because of the way it increases the flow of blood and oxygen to your brain and reproductive system. Nambu’s Love & Grace Formula is Tulsi infused with sound vibrations that support the Heart Chakra and giving and receiving love.
