SLIDE: Sacred = connected with God; that which is holy

We have an issue. I was taught that you never use the word you’re defining in the definition!

SLIDE: Sexuality
sexual character; possession of the structural and functional traits of sex.
recognition of or emphasis upon sexual matters.
involvement in sexual activity.
an organism’s preparedness for engaging in sexual activity.

SLIDE: Sexual
of, relating to, or for sex: sexual matters; sexual aids.
occurring between or involving the sexes: sexual relations.
having sexual organs or reproducing by processes involving both sexes.

SLIDE: Sex
either the male or female division of a species, especially as differentiated with reference to the reproductive functions.
the sum of the structural and functional differences by which the male and female are distinguished, or the phenomena or behavior dependent on these differences.
the instinct or attraction drawing one sex toward another, or its manifestation in life and conduct.

Objectives:
Explore remnants of shame that live in us around our sexual nature
Identify places and spaces that are hard and brittle–breathe into those spaces and wake them up
Invoke lovemaking to oneself and on the planet

Keywords/Stories/Points:

SLIDE: Arousal
to stir to action or strong response; excite
to stimulate sexually
to awaken; wake up

An aroused state is an ascended state – you’ve ascended the limitations of time and space.

SLIDE: World consciousness is the level of appearances, of the physical and material. It conceives of everything through the senses and believes that reality is visible. Ascension consciousness transcends time and space. It is aware of forms, but experiences them through a different dimension than the one of which we are ordinarily aware. – It’s All God by Walter Starcke

Connection
SLIDE: Our culture has lost the understanding that sexual energy is a physical expression of spiritual power. In truth, the desire to unite sexually with another human being is a reflection of an underlying spiritual need to experience wholeness and complete intimacy, transcending the individual’s sense of separateness and isolation. It is a need to return to the original source of creation. Sexual union without this sacred element, carried out only for the sake of pleasure, is commonly thought to be enough to satisfy our needs. But it rarely does, and then only fleetingly. With the sacred element added, it is possible for us to experience a connection with the life force itself, with our deepest creative impulses. – The Art Of Sexual Ecstasy by Margo Anand

What in your life is brittle and dry – without life force/aliveness – anything can be resurrected when you breathe life into it!

SLIDE: When man is born, he is tender and weak; at death, he is hard and stiff. When things and plants are alive, they are soft and supple; when they are dead, they are brittle and dry. Therefore hardness and stiffness are the companions of death, and softness and gentleness are the companions of life. – Lao Tzu

Summary/Takeaways:
Take an inventory of your life based on aliveness and determine what in your life feels dead or alive – Energy Audit
