Soundtrack: Ace Hood and others “Bugatti” (remix)
The more I open myself to allowing Spirit to work through me as I work with my clients, the greater my empathic abilities become. I sometimes feel what the client feels, or even what they are unable to feel. Sometimes I intuitively receive messages about the client’s past, or present, or future.
Yesterday I had a session with a client that forced me into deep contemplation. This client has an enormous gift that has gone sadly underutilized for pretty much her whole life. In short, she is supposed to be living a life of the modern sacred prostitute. Her destiny is to help men connect with their own divinity through the experience of her sexuality. However, she was raised in the United States in the same way that most girls are in this country. She was taught that sex is bad. Just don’t do it. If you have sex as much as you really want to then you’re a dirty little slut, and on top of that, you’re going to hell. Don’t explore your body. Don’t experiment with your friends. And the sky will rain fire and brimstone if you get pregnant. So she shut down her sexuality.
Now in case that statement wasn’t controversial enough, let me add a lil mo’ (not the singer): I am positing that one of the major reasons why women in this country are experiencing so many reproductive system issues (endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, etc) is because their sexual energy is being repressed. This client has had all of the above mentioned issues. Along with the hysterectomy that western doctors always suggest for Black women to get when they have reproductive system health issues. They ain’t got the answers on this like Sway. They don’t know how to fix it so they just start pulling out parts. Western medicine’s lack of understanding of the energy body is a fatal flaw. The Universe is a big ball of energy. That’s all that it is, and all that it has ever been. Obviously, human beings are part of the universe. To lack understanding of how our energy impacts our physical body is not to know the first thing about how the human body works.
Now, back to the lecture at hand (how many Hip Hop references can I make in one blog post??). Our sexual energy is powerful beyond what most of us have been aware of. Our sexual energy is our basic life force. It is what makes us alive and what gives us the ability to create new life, in the physical sense and in the metaphysical sense. Our sexual energy will not be denied. Trying to repress it will only cause it to manifest itself in other unintended ways. This principle is the reason why priests have such a horrible track record of molesting young boys. They won’t allow the energy to be channeled in a natural way, with grown women, but the energy is gonna find an outlet for itself regardless.
In women, repressed sexual energy shows up in a different way. Women are yin beings. Yin energy is receptive. Yin energy holds onto things, whereas yang energy forces outward. Because women are yin/receptive, the womb functions as a storage space. The womb is where women store things, good or bad. Another aspect of yin energy is that it seeks to transform the things that it receives into something new. A woman receives her man’s seed and transforms it into a new life. In a similar fashion, a woman can receive a man’s vision and give birth to the material manifestation of that vision. The woman’s own sexual energy gets transformed in the same way. The sexual energy is supposed to be used for creating things, be it a baby or a business or what have you. When the sexual energy is shut down and doesn’t get utilized properly, it is still seeking to transform and create. This is how growths develop in the womb. The energy is taking the raw material that it has available to it and seeking to create something. Needless to say, these growths in the uterus and ovaries are undesirable.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that 75% of his work of breathing new life into an oppressed people involved reforming the women. It is the woman who determines the state of the culture. It is the woman who shapes the minds of the children. It is the woman who carries the vision of new ideas, new inventions, and new technology. This is why the Honorable Elijah Muhammad also said that a nation can rise no higher than its women. The change that the world so desperately needs toward a more sane and sustainable system is to be found in removing the restrictions on female sexuality.
Women and men must begin to learn the differences between feminine and masculine energy, yin and yang. And we especially must begin to appreciate the unique power of the yin. Women must be empowered and encouraged to flex their manifesting muscles. The sexual energy of women which constantly seeks to create must be exercised. All of us really want to live in a world where women are always getting good sex and always manifesting the desires of her and her partner(s), whether we realize it or not. Conscious relationships and conscious sex are an essential component of a blissful life, for individuals and for society as a whole.
When that client is fully set free to be the woman that she was born to be, she will be more fulfilled and her health will be restored. Also, every man who comes into her life from now on will become better than how she found him. She will take his energy and transform it into a superior version of him, freeing him up to make a more positive impact on the world.
Allow me to top this off with one last reference from Hip Hop culture. In the immortal words of Ice-T, “Girls, L.G.B.N.A.F. (Let’s Get Butt Naked and Fuck!)”. We owe it to the world.
