19 May The True Purpose of Sex is Transcendence!
I often cry after a really great orgasm. My heart feels blown open by the powerful release of pleasure, and any emotional residue I have been carrying up until that point is washed away by the flood of bliss which infuses my mind and body.
Which is exactly what is supposed to happen, according to some scientific studies. The true function of human sexuality is to a) transform consciousness, and b) heal as a result of that transformation.
And by transformation of consciousness, I do not mean “woo woo” pie in the sky sort of transformation. I mean tangible, measurable, physiological change.
During the experience of orgasm there is an increase of slow brain waves such as Delta and Theta waves. These Theta waves allow the mind to access deep and profound learning, healing, and growth – it is said to be the brain wave where our minds can connect to the Divine and manifest changes in the material world. Theta waves gain us access to powerful subconscious parts of ourselves, which are normally inaccessible to our waking minds.
Additionally, Delta brainwaves provide us with increased empathy, and access to the “unconscious mind”. Being in Delta is like being in the most deeply relaxing trance or non-physical awareness. Delta brainwave patterns have also been linked to speed healing of the mind and body.
Researchers have also discovered that – within the Delta brainwave range, some frequencies are even able to produce healthy substances such as: DHEA, melatonin, and H.G.H. (Human Growth Hormone). The melatonin, H.G.H., and DHEA that Delta brain waves produce are able to slow and/or reverse the effects of aging.
Human Sexual Orgasm gives us direct access to these brainwave patterns, which have been shown to have profoundly healing and regenerative effects on our mind and body. These brainwave patterns also give us direct access to deeper levels of self-awareness, self-connection, and “enlightened” states of mind. This is the way our bodies are designed! I think that is pretty freaking amazing.
Also take into account the vast array of mood and health enhancing neurotransmitters that are released during human sexual connection such as; serotonin, dopamine, endorphins, oxytocin – all of which affect our mood, personality, disposition, and overall quality of life, not just during sex, but throughout our day to day lives!
So in my opinion, the mainstream attitude towards sexuality as either a) something to be feared or ignored or b) the simple gratification of a physical desire (like scratching an itch) – is completely ridiculous. We have in our hands the most powerful tool for actively healing our body and emotions, and measurably altering our consciousness, without the use of any external substances.
Given that this is the case – how could you expect your sexual experiences to be anything other than medicine for your mind, body, and soul?
