The Earth is just so pleased and in love with herself. And so in love with the sun. When you step outside and stand on Earth and feel the Sun’s warmth on your skin, you are just a little more in love with it all too. The birds and insects and spring peepers make a little love song. Water babbles or ripples or waves, and when the wind blows it is full of fragrance. It is all a romance. Everything is looking for union, full of excitement and expectation.
The fires of Beltane used to be a time of play and exploration of your own sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy. Whether alone, or in trusted partnership, this trio of sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy provides an opportunity to practice deep level lower chakra work. Modern humans have very little space to explore the gift of their sexuality or the ways physical pleasure is related to health and spirit. As children come of age we give them long talks about the dangers of sex, and no discussion about its benefits, no discussion about its sacred gifts. Your sexuality and its expression, your fullness and understanding of it are a cornerstone in the foundation of your health and wellness- yet even alternative health practitioners rarely ask their patients about their sex life.
Vibrancy is a result of optimal wellness. It is a result of all chakras being open and interconnected, the chakras are interdependent. We cannot do chakra work, spiritual work, or wellness work without doing the deeply personal work of investigating what sexuality, sensuality and intimacy mean to us. When my clients do this work they suddenly find new doors open on their journey, new tools available in all areas of life.
We expect women to stand up for themselves at work and in public arenas when so many still aren’t comfortable asking the person they love and trust most in the world for what they want in bed. Lower chakra practice is essential to strength, confidence, and creativity. As a result of all our conditioning we keep our deepest selves from ourselves and from each other. The conditioning of men, of women, and our relationships with each other has complicated our desires. Imagine how much magic can happen when we practice removing these conditions and the hearts are even closer than the bodies. This is about much more than intimate partnerships, healthy intimate partnerships just provide a safe place to practice. When you are intimate with your sensuality and your lower chakras, you are free to connect more deeply with everyone and everything you encounter.
Today the sun will kiss your skin and the breeze will blow your hair. Its an invitation.
Go play, its May.
