We have completely lost the understanding of what sensuality is. We put it in one box with sexuality, and as sex is a big modern taboo, anything that can be associated with it is immediately labeled as wrong.
Yes, sensuality can lead to sexuality, just like a dinner can. But sensuality itself is not about sex. You can be sensual with your friends, your family and absolute stranger, for whom you feel no desire at all.
Sexuality is the energy of your second chakra – the Sacral Chakra. It is linked to water and taste. Kissing, bathing and flowing are all watery in nature. It is about your desires and pleasures. It’s about what you want to feel good.
Sensuality, on the other hand, comes from your Heart Chakra. It’s about unconditional love, with no object, and about a deep, intimate connection. Though it still gives you a lot of pleasure, it’s the blending into one with another being that gives the most high, not the animalistic desire. Sensuality is about touch and bout opening the heart.
We have enough of sexuality but we are starving from lack of sensuality.
Re-learning to open your body to give and receive touch is a beautiful and healing practice. You are a sensual being and you need the touch – so express it! When with friends, hug them. Cuddle with your loved ones and family. Caress each other. Sensuality is a language that allows to express your deep emotions much better than any word will ever do.
“and i said to my body. softly. ‘i want to be your friend.’ it took a long breath. and replied ‘i have been waiting my whole life for this.” ― Nayyirah Waheed
This is me. #noedit
My body… not others.
I’m questioned over my skin, my words, my choices, my desires. Even if I could change into what others want me to be, will they be content?
It is painfully funny my crazy existence, fuels others imagination, teases others tolerances as if my body is for others for amusement, just not yet mine!
This is my masterpiece, every muscle has a story of how I created it over not a month, but my entire life. I do not deserve to eat bad because of what my body looks like or have more rest days. I deserve to eat healthy and continue moving, so I can continue to function well. I am not a label like porn or inappropriate. I am a human that has created a child inside me. I have inside me neuro pathways that show on the outside how I learnt to be who I am through the ripple of these muscles on my body. I created this body from my heart and soul desires, not for externals or for anyone to judge me by it, but for myself and my life. It is my work of art my body and my home for this life and my external expressions of my heart and soul and mind. It is not a body given to me, it is made through my choices and hard work and the life I have experienced good and challenging. My body is not a problem to be solved, my body it is a gift to be utilised. I am 34 years old and have one child. This is a 34 year old body still working for me, not against me. This is me and my gift to me is a body that I can use to create the art and life I choose, with kindness, love and respect given to me, so I can then shine it to others because it all starts within. This body is my tool to create the rest of my life. Our bodies are not sins, they are not a judgment of good or bad or more beautiful people. They are simply tools for life, with our stories etched into them by each scar, unique look and muscle movement.
