The words of our resident Tantra expert, Dawn Cartwright, never fail to move us with their beauty. In our Summer 2020 issue, she wrote about honouring our sexual centres and rising in love. We previously shared a sneak peek of this article to our website, and today, we wanted to share the whole thing. Read on below and let it move you.
Embracing Our Centres
Let’s Rise in Love
by Dawn Cartwright
If there was ever a time when the world (and all of us in it) needed more love, it’s now. Good news is, our bodies contain a map for love: one that has existed since the beginning of time. It was here long before we arrived, before the universe and the world as we know it began. It’s the energy of life, pure and untouched. It’s the very beginning of love.
Some call this energy Kundalini, some call it passion, others call it renewal and promise and hope. It’s a map of the human spirit. A map with lines traced from earth to sky.
This map exists in our sexual centre, alive with sexual energy. It is the map of sexual reflexology. When we are touched, both physically and emotionally, this map comes alive. The channels of Kundalini awaken and we are reborn and renewed. When we give and receive conscious sexual touch and embrace the emotions that emerge, we activate that energy throughout the body. We rise in love.
Sexual reflexology is a way of bringing conscious touch to the sexual centre. When we feel secure and receptive to touch, our body relaxes and tension is released. Our sexual centre comes into balance and awakens. Our sexual energy flows naturally.
Your touch may be strong and warm or gentle and deep. Find a way to touch these places in and on your own body so you feel met, welcome and accepted. It may take some practice to sink in and truly receive your touch, be patient, be loving with yourself.
You may also wish to touch yourself emotionally as you explore sexual reflexology. There are emotions associated with each of the reflexology zones. Allow your meditation to bring you into these balanced emotional states, then melt those emotions into your heart and into your body until you feel the two merge in resonance.
There are four zones in the sexual centre, corresponding to four meridians or energy channels in the body. Like the map of the Kundalini, these zones and channels are a path to awakening. When all four zones are activated and flowing, we feel grounded, alert and exuberant. Our sexual experiences are loving, intimate and fulfilling.
The First Zone
The first zone is located at the base of the sexual centre for both women and men. This zone is connected to our sexuality. It is the place where Kundalini energy is coiled. It is the gateway to ecstasy. When we touch this part of our body consciously, we release tension and increase balance in our sexuality and physical being. In this way, energy begins to move more freely. We feel accepted and experience self-love. The emotions associated are: gentle, peaceful and calm.
The Second Zone
The second zone is located on the sex centre for both women and men. Half way between the root and crown for the man’s sexual centre and at the centre of the G-spot for women. This zone is connected to our sensuality. It is the place of relationship and pleasure. When we touch this part of the body consciously, we release tension and increase balance in our relationships. We feel more at ease with sexual pleasure. Energy moves freely and we feel emotionally available, we feel attraction and attractive. The emotions associated are: generous, caring, sympathetic and confident.
The Third Zone
The third zone is located just beneath the crown of the sexual centre for a man and just above the G-spot for women. This zone is connected to our vitality, our inner fire. It is the place of physical vibrancy and health. It is the zone where we express ourselves as the unique human being we are. When we touch zone three consciously, we release tension and increase balance in our vitality and sense of self. Energy flows freely and we have better boundaries and have more to give. The emotions associated are: grounded, centred, and open.
The Fourth Zone
The fourth zone is located at the very top of the sexual centre for women, near the opening of womb, and at the crown of the sexual centre for men. This zone is connected to the heart. It is the place of spiritual love, intimate love, self love and unconditional love. Zone four is the place where we experience empathy and shared passion. When we touch this zone consciously, we release tension and increase balance in our ability to love. Energy flows freely and we are able to bond, accept and trust. The emotions associated are contentment, enthusiasm and joy for no reason.
Rise In Love
Each of these sexual reflexology zones is a universe of love in itself. We are, love is, mirrors into mirrors. In our lovemaking, these zones are touched naturally, a beautiful way to consciously touch all four. Give yourself or someone you love some conscious touch today. May you always rise in love.
