How Sacred Sexuality Promotes Healthy Sexuality

Unhealthy sexuality is defined by the fact that it causes sexual dysfunction like perversion. Perversion can be defined as obsessive and repulsive acts like having sex with animals, pedophilia, necrophilia, rape.. etc. Sexual addiction is also unhealthy sexuality as it becomes self destructive. Sexual addiction completely takes over a person’s life, like all other addictions they live their lives totally out of balance for the next rush or high that they get from sex. Sexually transmitted diseases are obviously another form of unhealthy sexuality and the more random one’s partners the higher the risk towards becoming infected with multiple STDs.

Sacred sexuality teaches us to temper our lusts with wisdom and love. Through a spiritual lens we understand the body and it’s practical functions as also sacred and holy. Sex is never just sex as it is the energy of two souls becoming alchemised as one. Lust for the sake of just pure animal impulses is seen as lower or dense energy.. lust that is channeled into love through the bridge of emotional intimacy can be used to create a long lasting and meaningful relationships. By seeing sex as sacred we make what would be seen religiously as profane, holy. But by being selective with whom we share our bodies and soul’s energy with we also create a physically healthy sexuality and emotionally healthy sexuality.

Sacred sexuality isn’t steeped in the dogma of religion or even in the dogma of tantra …. but in the practicality of the wisdom of seeing the flesh and soul as one.

The issue with having too many sexual partners is becoming numb towards true intimacy.. seeing sex as simply a physical act can make many people learn over time to push away or deny their emotions towards the people that they are having sex with.. and that is why in today’s ” Hook up ” culture society as a whole has become intimacy deprived or even retarded. By calling society emotionally retarded it means that we have become impaired towards making emotional and even intellectual connections in our personal romantic relationships, because we have learned over time to deny our emotions. We have learned through the hook up culture to deny our hearts desires to deeply, and intimately connect to one another on a soulful level.

With leaving the heart and soul out of sexuality we have forgotten how to be sensual and empowered by our sexuality rather than to be driven by it, channel it rather than have it drive us off course towards dysfunction and addiction.

Sex is powerful energy and we must learn to use it wisely and to respect it as a force of nature.. much like fire ..if you play with it and handle it without respect and care you will get burned by it.

The rule of sacred sex is that it does no harm to you or to others; not just on a physical level but on an emotional level. The problem with having sex for just the sake of lust is that eventually someone gets hurt physically with disease or emotionally by being denied the love of the other. There is always cause and effect in the Universe.. eventually the karma of what you have denied for the sake of lust will catch up and connect with you towards an intense spiritual lesson.. so be responsible towards how you play with the deep cosmic energy of sexuality, by being conscious and aware we can use our sexuality to create a heaven on earth.. in a practical and spiritual sense.

 

Beautiful Menstrual Blood

 

There is power in the blood..but it isn’t in the blood of Jesus..it was in the blood of Mary, of Isis and of Inanna.. she didn’t come from his rib..he has always come from her womb..and he also had a womb within her womb.. from 0 to 8 weeks of gestation inside the womb.. he was a she..and so it is The Goddess lives within the man..and so it is that he is always trying to find away to get back home to her..but he has lost his way in attempting to claim the power of the womb for himself.. ( The Patriarchy ) are the men whom have gone astray from The Great Mother by trying to claim her blood or womb for themselves..for their own power plays.. or ego fears that if women come into the power of their wombs ..the power of life..the cradle of life that exists within them..that they would do as the egocentric Patriarchy do..and that is to use the sacred blood to control all humanity for the sake of power and greed..and so they shamed the blood of The Great Mother..and made her sex evil; she was made to cover her nursing breasts.. and not allowed to enter the male based religious temples while she bleed..as she was labeled unclean and dirty.. and so it is to this very day women are shamed into covering up..to cleaning up.. the organic nature of their nurturing, dripping fertility ..their gold.. their treasure.. buried in shame..and that is why I am writing this post as I bleed..

Today I loved myself..as I felt my body get ready to shed my red velvet lining.. like the lining of a treasure chest.. I felt very emotional.. listening to classical music; I felt my bottom lip quiver ..as the music fit so tenderly with my tender heart and womb.. I was wakened in the middle of the night with cramps..and crazy dreams.. and I knew.. it was time to be tender with myself..

Every time I bleed I think of my past pregnancies..and I think about how my children grew inside of me using my blood for a bed.. using my body for comfort and food..and because my breast are tender like they were during pregnancy, I think about how much I loved nurturing each one of my children with my breast milk.. I think about how my body and every women’s body is a wonderland.. is magic.. how sensual we are.. just like the Earth herself..how she holds our lives by the dirt under our feet..that what we think of as dirty like menstrual blood..is organic and fertile.. and I feel intense emotion and love for The Great Mother..and I feel one with her.. and I feel that I am lying at her breasts.. nestled in her great cradle of life..and I think women’s blood is gold… golden and rich with possibilities ..

But then I remember all the shame I encountered as a young woman..only being 10 when I first bleed.. the shame put onto me by society.. not to smell like blood, not to leak blood.. not show the lump in my paints that my pad made.. how horrible gym was.. how awful the boys were.. how intolerant and even cruel male teachers could be.. I remember feeling that way into my 20s.. how sad a society that we treat girls and woman like dirty little things.. for having wombs and breasts..for having the power within them to create life..to chose to nurture life or not to ..

Now I am 45..and I have bled for 35 years..and now that I know my blood is sacred.. now that I know my blood is magic..soon I will enter a new phase..the dark moon phase of The Goddess.. when my womb will no longer bleed.. but now my womb has taught me wisdom..and that is The Dark Moon Phase.. I am wise.. wise to the ways of the womb and the blood.. and it is my place to teach the Maidens.. those entering into the New Moon Phase.. to teach them to honor their blood.. to see their blood as sacred .. of ancient red gold.. to teach new mothers in the Full Moon Phase of The Goddess.. to nurse uncovered.. to nurse without shame.. to wear the pregnant bellies without shame.. to love their round Full Moon..and flowing Milky Way breasts..as the Milky Way is the Milk of Isis..

And It is my duty to teach men who are conscious and ready… ready to be initiated into the ways of The Great Mother..ready to come home to the womb.. it is my duty as a Goddess.. to show them the way back to their MOTHER .. away from controlling and shaming women.. to honoring, loving and supporting The Goddesses in their lives.. this is the way to his Godhead..to his Inner God.. to see the sacredness in the womb.. the womb that birthed him..the womb he longs for.. the womb that was once his very own..while he lived within the womb.. and this is the infinite wisdom of the ancients.. let it be birthed again through the blood… for we will be saved by the blood of The Goddess… by her compassion.

What I think about God

We are Gods.. we create this reality.. God is in words and in forms or symbols that we create because we are the Gods creating Gods outside of ourselves.. once humanity realizes that we are the Gods, that we create, then we can move forward towards our true evolution..because once we all accept this as fact and accept the sciences .. we will create a reality that is conscious.. but because most of the human race lives by superstition we remain unconscious towards our own divine nature.. ( you know it’s wisdom because it’s damn simple )

Q. ” Why does the cage bird sing?”

A. ” Because it is in it’s nature to sing.. when the bird stops singing it’s dead ”

The riddle or metaphor.. Humanity is killing it’s self by denying it’s own true nature through religious repression.. humanities repressed sexual nature turns to wars inside the subconscious and therefore manifests outside of the individual consciousness towards the wars of nations and the sexes.

If the answer to humanities problems or lack of evolution is continually denied..it will eventually lead to us destroying our own species … the answer is to not deny our own nature or biology .. this creates harmony and life vs death from lack of thriving due to repression..

See how simplistic wisdom is…

Anti Abortion Protests in Kelowna BC Canada

This happened on Wednesday morning May 20th 2015.. it’s taken me a few days to calm down so that I can write this post as objectively as possible.

I was driving my kids to school; driving past Mission Park in Kelowna..down Springfield Rd.. we saw bright colors along the hillside. At first my kids and I thought they had turned the hillside into a huge garden bed of flowers; but upon approaching we saw the anti abortion signs and that the flowers were bright blue and pink landscape flags. I must say I was instantly livid!..and I can pinpoint exactly why now. Because pro choice gives women and men the choice to continue a pregnancy or not.. it gives choice and non judgement. Pro choice doesn’t attempt the owner ship of women’s bodies or both men and women’s lives. Pro Life attempts to take away the rights and freedoms of others by painting all abortions with the same brush of brightly colored shame. To me all of those flags were a guilt trip! All of those flags dipped in the manipulative poison of shame. Each of those flags represents the ownership of the womb; they tag women as incubators for the seed of the patriarchy.

What really pisses me off the most is that these anti abortionist; pro lifers .. were given a permit from the city to use a public park..along a very busy road .. using freedom of speech and freedom to protest to attempt to take freedom away from women and men who, for varied reason have chosen not to take a pregnancy to full term.. how is it that shaming people who practice their rights to choice isn’t considered hate speech? I think it is because the Government is steep in religious dogma..that it has been absorbed into the constitution if the constitution is even at all relevant at times like these.. and so my rage; my anger .. was the response of protecting freedom.. and such is the effect of passion.and my passion for women’s rights, equality and freedom.. yes this makes me an emotional girl.

I knew upon passing this display of self righteous hypocrisy that I would be taking a stand .. as I dropped my children off at school I was chomping at the bit to confront those who attempted through guilt and shame to take way the rights and freedoms of others.. and so I did.

Dressed for the gym.. I walked up the slope of the park to address a man sitting smugly in a lawn chair.. he was about 65. I asked him what the protest was about; he told me that each of the flags represented a boy or girl that was aborted. I asked him ” Were are the rainbow flags for all of the gay children then? You know they are born gay right?” He then asked me if I believed in hell.. my response was ” hell is here right now and you are creating it.” He told me they had a right to protest..and then I told him I have a right to protest your protest by picking up the garbage that you have all over this public park. I then began pulling out flags. I was yelled at of course. I was asked ” Don’t you believe in God?” I was told ” You are a baby killer !!” ( I myself haven’t had to have an abortion..but I just might need to one day ..if I am raped..or my daughters and your daughters might need to one day too) Then soon I found myself surrounded. I was preached at; my hair was pulled. They tried to untie my runners. They tried to pull the flags from my arms..but I kept pulling them up.. the posts were steel..they were getting heavy.. they said ” You have quite a few now..they must be getting heavy.. why don’t you just put them down..give them to us..they are our property.. you are taking our property ..we are calling the police now!!” I told them ” It is a good thing I lift heavy weights then.. I was just on my way to the gym..I go 5 days a week. I am not taking your property off this property so I am not stealing anything. When I am done cleaning up your guilt trip I will give them back to you. Call the police.. my name is Gracie Ackerman.” I was glad they were calling the cops. I wanted to get my point across, strong and clearly. The men were so arrogant and manipulative. They told me they were just trying to stop all the baby girl abortions in China.. they told me that was male control.. not what they were doing in the name of God.. then they told me this was non religious.. then in the next sentence they were condemning me and judging me a evil and a sinner. One woman who had an abortion.. who obviously regretted it; was sure I had, had one too.. she said ” She is obviously wounded from her abortion” I said ” Obviously you are..but you have no right to think that other women will share your feelings should they chose to abort.”

One man in his 50s droned on and on.. with his own personal dogma..saying the same thing over and over again..it was so ultra creepy.. He stood toe to toe with me as I bent over and kept picking up the flags.. saying ” That was another baby you just killed.. that flag was a boy..now you just killed a girl..” then he went on and on and on about the baby girls in China .. his eyes would glaze over as if he took comfort and got a high from his own internal dogma spewing out of his mouth..finally I just couldn’t take him anymore and I said ” Do I look like your subservient good Christian wife? Do I look like that stunned bitch over there that is in a constant guilt trip in her own head over her choice to abort? Do I look like I empower the patriarchy by giving you my submission and my mind? Fucking shut the fuck up! You fucking arrogant ignorant boy man! Go tell you wife this shit.. You represent women’s imprisonment! You fucking make me sick! You are the type of man in the church that would rape a young girl.. then blame her for dressing the wrong way inciting her own rape.. look at how these women dress here.. like sickening gray zombies.. no make up .. no skin showing.. they are servants to men.. do I look like the fucking type that is going to believe your manipulations and dogma bullshit.. shut the fuck up!” I was thinking ” Were the fuck are the cops! I want to make my stand..get the point across for all women who are to afraid to do this..because I am not afraid..but hurry up cops!”

So next the sang Amazing Grace..because they thought it funny and ironic that my name is Grace.. So I sang it will them.. my voice shaking in anger.. and I corrected them when they got the lyrics wrong..idiots! And that is right I am Amazing Grace.. because what I did was for the love of equality and freedom.. for everyone that is here on this planet with me and everyone who will walk after me..

Finally the cops showed up.. I motioned for him to walk up the slope.. He had to give me shit..that’s his job. I understood that. I had to drop the flags were I stood..because legally they were not my property. Yes they got a permit to protest from the parks board.. ( way to go Government and religion mixing ) .. that equals inequality..

But after the cop gave me shit.. I told him ” I am proud of myself and what I did. I write about women’s rights and equality…sexual repression through religion..I respect the fact that you are a cop.. your job is intense.. but I hope you can see that we both stand for the same thing and that is justice.. I didn’t just write about it..I just walked my talk.. I think I took a stand today for many people.” We then shook hands..and I got in my car.. and I went to the gym and worked it all out in sweat.. mission was accomplished.

I learned that they had a right to put their hands on me for pulling up there flags.. imaging that? Some thing is really wrong with that..

But imagine if this does set hard and fast into our Government.. and women become less than people because the potential life inside of them becomes more important than the proven viable life carrying the the potential.. if that happens humanity is damned to fall into ashes.
