A lot of people keep talking about saving their sexual energy to channel it into productive pursuits, but how do you actually do that? In this episode of Ask Amanda Anything, Amanda reveals how you can transform that sexual energy and use it to fuel your internal power for enlightenment and to increase our ability to expand beyond our limited potential.

Beyond Sex: Transforming Your Sexual Energy Into Life Force Energy (Ask Amanda Anything)

Awaken Your Sexual Energy And Fuel Your Internal Power

I'm excited to bring you another episode of Ask Amanda Anything. I am always thrilled when I get questions because not only does it mean that you're reading, but you're active. You're engaged. You are truly wanting to dive deeper into some of the practices that I'm sharing whether it's with other podcast interviewers or with myself. Dan wrote in and said, “I've got a question for your next episode. They keep talking about saving their sexual energy to channel it into productive pursuits, but how? When I feel sexually charged, I can hardly think of anything else. Release feels necessary so that I can live a normal life that's not 100% primal.” Dan, I love the fact that you asked this question. It's incredibly important and I was just waiting for someone to begin to tap into this. I get the concept, but how do I make it into something practical that I can do on a daily basis?

According to Taoism and Tantra, the sexual energy is one of the most powerful energies we have. It's the force that creates all life around us. In our way of viewing sexual energy, it’s like, “We get horny, we find a mate and disperse your seeds. Now, I can move on and sex isn't on my brain all the time,” specifically for men. However, when we think about what actually the sexual energy is, its life force energy. It's the strongest life force energy we have. If we're reacting, we have this charge of testosterone and we have this charge of sexual drive and every time we have this charge, we go find a mate or we use our hand or whatever it is to expel it. Number one, we're allowing this energy to take control of us. Instead of us taking control of our energy and using this energy for its absolute ability to increase our power, we are giving our power away. Whether it be to our hand, whether it be to a woman or a man, we are allowing this powerful energy. It's primal and it's powerful, but we're allowing this energy to overcome us and how we're able to use the energy. In Tantra and in Taoism, it's about understanding that there is this energy and it's often localized.

When we're just acting from a primal state, our sexual energy is localized. It stays in what we call in yoga or even Tantra, the energy body known as the groins and/or the sacral chakra. All of our energy and oftentimes also our orgasms, when we ejaculate or when we orgasm, it also often stays localized in the groins. The idea is to begin to use this powerful energy and to channel this energy. Instead of keeping it in your groins, move the energy up so that you no longer get stuck in the primal states. In Tantra, we talk about using this energy for enlightenment and using this energy to increase our ability to expand beyond our unlimited potential or what we perceive to be our limited potential. It’s like, “I get it, but how does that work?”

On the show with Anahata, we talked about how meditation is huge. First of all, you have to understand your energy. You have to develop a relationship with this energy and get to know it. The next time you have this sexual urge, sit down and get to know it. Be in a space and get to develop a relationship with this sexual energy. Start to breathe into it. What does it feel like? How does it move in the body? When you bring awareness to it, how does that change? From that space, can you begin to start to literally and intentionally move the energy? Oftentimes, it's going to be very powerful and it's going to be very localized in the groin. The mind is always attached to, “There's this sexual energy. I need to use it. I need to move it.” It's going to feel hard to sit here and just witness your sexual energy. Take yourself outside of the energy and be the observer of the energy and then imagine. Just imagine that you could contain this energy with your breath and it’s something called the Microcosmic Orbit. It's a channel of energy that runs up the back of your spine and runs down the front of your spine. It starts at the perineum. It starts at the base of the spine or the root chakra.

What I would invite you to do is to begin to feel and imagine that you could cultivate this energy like a chi ball instead of it just being like, “I need to do something. I can't just hold onto it. Where's my hand? Where's the porn? Where's the woman?” How about learning to be outside of the energy, but yet feel the energy so you're not attached to it? Start to try to move the energy up and it starts with intention. Everything starts with intention. We are so much more powerful than we can even begin to understand but oftentimes we don't give ourselves the time and space to separate ourselves from our mind which is always controlling us. Beyond our mind, we are energy and we are so incredibly powerful. Take this energy ball. Once you've detached from it enough, take this energy ball and move it up to the back of your spine. With your breath and your imagination or rather your intention, start to breathe in through the pelvis and through the perineum. Imagine that there's a channel of energy that is moving up the back of your spine all the way up to the top of your head. It will take some time, but with your breath, start to move this energy ball from the perineum all the way up and maybe even try to stop at different chakras.

Chakra seems like a super woo-woo thing, but look at most ancient Eastern healing modalities texts whether it's Tantra or Chinese medicine or acupressure or Ayurveda or Yoga. Many people talk about it and even the Egyptians and the Merkabah, they talk about this energy field. It's here. It's alive. Whether we're aware of it or not and whether we're tuned into or not, it’s powerful. It's necessary for us to begin to understand how we are no longer going to be controlled by our physical and our mental and emotional. It's going to take time. It's going to take practice. It's not that all of a sudden you're going to sit down once and try it and it's going to be easy. Just like anything, it’s going to take practice.

You can even try this in masturbation as well. This is a big part of Tantra. I have a blog called True Tantra Starts with Self. I talked about before you make Tantric love with a lover, you need to make sure that you can understand and harness your own power of your own energy and your own orgasm. That means this may even be bringing yourself to the edge of orgasm and as soon as you feel this surge of energy, take your breath and move the energy from the groin up the back of the spine. Then you can bring it down the front of the spine and you can even store it in what's known as Dantian in Taoism which is this place right below the navel. You could even try storing it in your Manipura which is your center chakra. It’s your power manifestation, of willpower and drive.

The Dantian which is right below the navel and the solar plexus chakra which where the diaphragm is, either of those places is great. The Dantian can is the source of all of our energy. If you want to make love to a goddess, you've got to make love to yourself first. You've got to be able to bring yourself to your edge in masturbation with yourself. Make love to yourself. Don't just make masturbation and thing that you do where you get off and then it's like, “I can just rest for a while and I can go on about my day.” First of all, you've lost your seat. You've lost your power. Many men can relate to this. As soon as you ejaculate, you’re tired. You've just lost energy. You've lost your vital life force energy and this is essential.

When we talk about using your energy to empower you and using your sexual energy to empower you, this is for women as well. I feel like women get this a little bit more than men intuitively, but it’s using your sexual energy to empower you. If you don't ejaculate and waste your seed and let it go out to your hand or to a woman or to something else, then you have this ability to move it and to create this to keep it inside. When your sexual power is inside you instead of outside, you have the ability to use this force energy and create something with it. Whether that's putting it into your job or putting it into your relationship or putting it into what you feel you're supposed to do here or your physical workouts. It's one of the most powerful practices for both women and men.

There's a bunch of different ways that you can use this energy and you can transform this energy. Storing it in the Dantian. If you want to learn more about the Microcosmic Orbit, you don't have to do this with just your sexual energy. It's very powerful in this way but you can just do it in your breathing. Sexual energy is so powerful but maybe it's going to be hard in the beginning to focus on this Microcosmic Orbit. The back of the channel goes up, the front of the channel goes down. It can meet at the perineum and then circle again and use cyclical breath. Inhale through the back, touch the tongue to the roof of the mouth and this creates a circuit and then bring it back down as you exhale and start to create an elliptical in your breath and just imagine. It sounds crazy but I promise you, it's so powerful. We can't always see energy but we can definitely feel it.

When we tune in to it and we close our eyes and become aware of our own energy, then we begin to become aware of other people's energy. Then all of a sudden, we’re aware that this energy is what's doing a lot of the controlling. Use your sexual energy to harness your personal power. This is one of the things that I'm most passionate about because I do believe that sex has become this thing where we're so used to it overcoming us. These hormones which are powerful, we are so used to it overcoming us instead of us being able to harness this energy and use it to store it or to move it into different places that will serve us better. I hope this helps. In both males and females, you can do it with masturbation. You can do it in general like not touching yourself and just trying to move the energy. There are so many different ways that you can store it. You can store it in the Dantian. You can just keep cycling it and it's going to take time. It's going to take practice. It's not going to be easy. Sometimes you might try this for men and you might have blue balls because it's overcoming you.

This sexual energy has overcome you the majority of your lives. Give it practice. Give it time. Does this mean that you're never supposed to ejaculate? No. Orgasm, ejaculation is great but allow the ejaculation to be something that you do intentionally instead of something that overcomes you. It's like when you're in sex. She hasn't fully gotten off yet or she hasn't fully climaxed or she's just beginning to get warmed up. Then there's this thing called premature ejaculation. That happens and all of a sudden it's like, “I know she was super into it, but I couldn't stay hard.” Have you practiced holding your own energy with yourself? If you haven't, then no wonder you get this gorgeous goddess on the bed and you stick your lingam in her yoni and it's magic all over the place and you can't harness that energy or hold that energy. It’s because you haven't practiced on your own.

Sexual Energy: If you want to make love like a god to a goddess, using your sexual power and working with the energy can be one of the most powerful practices you will have.

 

Making love to yourself, bringing yourself to your edge and then holding it. I know I'm a woman talking about this, but I worked with many men on this and with this and sexually as well. It might seem weird and there might be a lot of resistance from men. They are like, “What does she know? She doesn't have a penis.” There's plenty of videos out there, by all means. I'm going to be bringing someone who will talk about it from the male's perspective as a man because I realized that it might be hard for you to take my advice. I promise, if you just do it and you try it, you will begin to understand and cultivate something powerful and magical, not only for yourself. That can enhance your own life. It will also enhance your sexual experience. It will also enhance your partner's sexual experience.

If you want to make love like a god to a goddess and feel this god-like nature of being in your power in all aspects of your lives, using your sexual power, cycling the energy, and working with the energy can be one of the most powerful practices you will have. When you start doing this, more women will start to be attracted to you. More women will feel that you're holding your masculine energy, that you're holding your power, that you're saving it for the right time and at the right moment. When that moment comes, you are going to be like a tiger. You are going to be so primal and so in your power and so ready in a very grounded and purposeful way. I promise it is one of the sexiest things ever.

For women who are reading this, ladies, we have this ability as well. One of the things that I work with women on is using this energy from the yoni, the birthplace of creation and moving it to your heart space and moving it out of your mind. Men can do this as well but for women, this is a lot more attuned. Use this is an opportunity to create more love and openness in your life's deliciousness. When you save it, it’s like not blowing all your money on the first thing that you see. You never know. There might be something later on down the road that you want but you blew all your money on the first thing you saw. You go throughout the rest of the fair or whatever it is and you have no money.

Be intentional with everything you do especially when it comes to connecting to your sexual energy. I hope this helps, Dan. If you have questions again, Ask Amanda Anything. This is your show.
