An energy orgasm is a mysterious sexual and energetic phenomenon that is currently gaining recognition and acclaim. Many people believe it to be fictional or simply reserved for the sexually elite. However, we are here to bust these myths and many others associated with this sensational experience.
The truth of the matter is that everyone has the capacity to experience an energy orgasm or full-body energy orgasm, but first you need to understand the secrets behind this ecstatic force.
If you would like to experience an energy orgasm yourself, it is necessary to actually realize that you are more than just a gross, physical body. Beyond your material body and physical manifestation, you are an energetic being comprising highly sophisticated energy centers, a super-network of energetic channels, and a substratum of subtle bodies. Whether you are aware of it or not, energy is continuously channeling through you and governing your thoughts, desires, emotions, sexuality, and actions.
For most people this flow of energy is unconscious and dictated by several factors such as lifestyle, the condition of a person’s mind, one’s astrological sign and makeup, plus much more. However, according to the great Yoga and Tantra systems, we don’t have to be victims of circumstance. In other words, we can learn to master energy. And not just the energy that pervades our being, but all the energy that permeates the entire universe. Sounds like a superhuman power, right? In reality, controlling energy is a skill that can be learned.
Energy is a universal force that is within us and all around us. There are many, many different types of energy. Regardless of the type, there is one fundamental truth about all energy – it operates according to and is governed by specific laws. Unlock these laws and, in essence, you will acquire the universal key to controlling and mastering energy.
Take electricity as an example. Electricity is a form of energy. Through scientific inquiry human beings were able to decipher the laws which ultimately produce electricity. As a result, electricity was no longer understood as an ethereal concept but rather it became known as a tangible and sensorial event that could be created on command and at will.
Another form of energy which is innate in all human beings is the sexual energy. In Tantra this is recognized as a dynamic and powerful force with tremendous potential. Our sexual energy can be used for much more than just sex, BUT it must be harnessed and controlled correctly. Just as we know that if we do not control our minds, our minds will control us, the sexual energy must be properly channeled and directed. There are specific teachings in Tantra that give you the tools to master your own sexual energy.
As with all energy, the sexual energy is also governed by its own set of rules and laws. Without intervention it has a tendency to accumulate in the lower domains of a human being. Here it is a very raw, crude, and heavy form of energy closely tied to pure instincts and basic desires, and it is limited to producing very superficial pleasure that is both outwardly explosive and fleeting in nature. When the sexual energy is used unconsciously and in a mundane sense, it is reserved for the genital area only and the energy orgasm remains legendary and elusive.
Bottom line, the sexual energy has extraordinary potential. Nevertheless, without understanding the laws that govern it and harnessing this energy in a precise way, it remains just that…a seed of potential buried deep in the soil of the sex center which never sprouts.
The energy orgasm is a unique state of mind that transcends any preconceived notions we have regarding sex, sexuality, the orgasmic potential, and the ultimate function of the sexual energy.
Simply described, an energy orgasm is a flushing and disbursement of the sexual energy throughout the entire body. Remember! When the sexual energy is “stuck” in the genital area alone it can produce outward effects only. An orgasm at this level discharges the sexual energy externally and in a fragmented manner, and its potency is lost. If the energy is directed inwardly, preserved, AND channeled upward, then it can transform into a super-sensory, magical, spiritual ecstasy that ripples throughout your entire being – mind, body, and soul – in the form of an energy orgasm.
As with any obscure phenomenon that does not fit the confines of our traditional upbringing, the energy orgasm has endured its share of criticism and skepticism. We would like to address the top three myths about the energy orgasm and bring light to this misconstrued topic.
In actuality, an energy orgasm differs greatly from the standard orgasm we are accustomed to today. For starters, an energy orgasm has no inherent limits or end. It has the intrinsic capacity to generate waves of continuous blissful pleasure. The sensation is sublime and divine in nature, transforming a person spiritually.
Additionally, the sexual energy has incredible and mysterious healing properties when conserved and circulated throughout the entire body. Eliminating blockages, releasing trauma, reinstating health, and balancing the emotions are just a few of the effects an energy orgasm can bring. Unfortunately, a normal orgasm – which is explosive, short-lived, and depleting – cannot promise the same results and, in fact, can even be harmful to the health and vitality of a human being because it wastes precious life force energy.
EVERYONE has the ability to experience an energy orgasm. It is not reserved for a special few. If you have sexual energy (the very fact that you are reading this, living and breathing, is evidence that you do!) you can enjoy the beauty and bliss of an energy orgasm.
In saying that, we have to acknowledge that – while this type of orgasm is impartial and readily available to all – for some people, it may not be accessible immediately. Certain preparations may be needed to cleanse and purify the energy centers and channels so that the sexual energy can flow unimpeded, radiating along clear energetic pathways and toward the higher dimensions of the being. With the right amount of time and effort, anyone can tap into the ecstatic essence of an energy orgasm.
To experience an energy orgasm requires nothing and no one outside of you. It is true, having a trained professional awaken and guide your sexual energy toward an energy orgasm can be a great help in the beginning. But ultimately, the only tool you need is your mind because energy flows where the mind goes. If you have a strong mind, good concentration, and diligent focus you can will your sexual energy to the pinnacle of an energy orgasm by yourself alone. Doing it with a partner can certainly enhance the experience, but this is a bonus and not a requirement.
Ultimately, both men and women have the same ability to experience an energy orgasm. However, due to the obvious gender differences that manifest physically, mentally, emotionally, sexually, and energetically, initially the orgasmic effects may reveal themselves differently in men and women.
Men, for example, experience energetic effects that are more subtle in nature when expressed on the physical plane. In the beginning, the effects can be felt kinesthetically on the skin such as a tingling sensation or a fluidic rush, as though water is rushing over the body. Once men surpass the mental conditioning that an orgasm can only materialize in the genital area, over time the energy begins to surge into other areas of the body and the full-body energy orgasm appears.
In men, this isn’t always embodied in the wave-like feeling characteristic of a typical orgasmic experience. Oftentimes it shows up as uncontrollable laughter, an overwhelming sense of love and an openness to receive, a vocalized humming or singing, and even as an emotional release. Regardless, all of these manifestations are signs that the energy channels are open to a degree and the energy has begun to move from the lower part of a man’s being to the higher aspects, bringing about very profound and deep forms of pleasure that most men deem unattainable.
Women, because of their more receptive and yin nature, tend to go beyond the physical energetic effects early on and very quickly experience the deeper aspects of an energy orgasm internally. The receptivity of the female archetype is both a gift and a burden. On the one hand it can make a woman more intuitive and sensitive to subtle energy. On the other hand, depending on the level and degree of receptiveness, it can be the cause of emotional or mental stress and the accumulation of many blockages, which can hinder a woman’s ability to move and feel energy.
When a woman does experience an energy orgasm, it is typically in the form of an emotional release, initially. Once the psychosomatic well has been cleared to a reasonable degree, the energy orgasm can take root, leading her to blissful and orgasmic heights. It is here that the energy moves through a woman’s body in wave form and she begins arching in great pleasure and moaning songs of pure delight.
The above descriptions are simple generalizations and are by no means a standard. It is not uncommon for women to experience an energy orgasm in a more subtle and physical way, similar to men, and for men to exhibit the classic, more feminine tendencies of the energy orgasm to assist deep emotional releases.
Eventually, with practice, there is a threshold or tipping point, so to speak, when the energy orgasm becomes impressively powerful for all, whether men or women.
An energy orgasm is an ethereal and spiritual experience that surpasses the thinking mind and even the physical body, making it very difficult to describe in words. It involves complete surrender to a force that is much greater than ourselves, and provides a glimpse into the divine. It reminds us of our true nature and inspires us to adopt a bigger, broader perspective into the nature of reality and our purpose as human beings. The energy orgasm is a unique state of mind that transcends any preconceived notions we have regarding sex, sexuality, the orgasmic potential, and the ultimate function of the sexual energy.
A regular orgasm is accompanied by the loss of vital fluids and energy which are externally exploited, forever lost and never to be recovered. In Tantra, both men and women learn to conserve and cultivate their sexual energy in such a way that there is no loss of energy. Instead, this energy is harnessed within and directed upward, giving practitioners access to unprecedented levels of pleasure, orgasm, and bliss.
If the sensing and movement of subtle energy does not come so easily for you, then the science and study of Tantra Yoga and tantric sex can be great tools for accessing your true energetic potential on all levels – physical, energetic, mental, emotional, sexual, and spiritual.
You can gain rare knowledge and wisdom through Tantra Yoga, Tantric Meditation, and Tantra Massage that propel your understanding of energy and the energy orgasm from a simple experience to an esoteric knowing. With such knowledge you can take the energy orgasm to a profound level and transform your whole life and all of its facets into a cosmic orgasm. It may sound like a fantasy, but that is how far Tantra and Yoga can take you! So, don’t just settle for a taste – liberate yourself into a magical energetic existence.
