Okay, so, for those of you who read this blog regularly…you may know that I have loads of company, tonnes of kids AND I am in the middle of a beautifully challenging and intense Tantra Bootcamp!
So, my Tantra creative well is, well, to be honest, running a little low! One of my visitors is my hubby’s cousin, the Dr. Reverend Stephen Strange of the Strange Family Circus…he is divinely creative, incredibly charismatic and capable of deep insights.
I asked him if he had any blog topic suggestions for me…he pondered my request for a few moments and then began telling me about his wood penetration accomplishment…He described how he had watched a video of a monk who takes a nail in the palm of his hand and with grace and speed, penetrates a board of wood with the nail..seemingly without hurting himself.
He is telling his story and I am thinking…mhm…he doesn’t quite get the Tantrachick theme me thinks. However…his story took a detour and he expressed a beautiful sentiment. He said that, when he first saw this incredible achievement…driving a nail through a piece of wood with one’s bare hand…he knew he not only must do it, but that he had the strength within to be successful.
At first, while he was attempting this challenging and potentially dangerous task, he visualized the board and therefore was able to drive the nail into the surface of the bard, but not all the way through, which was his goal–to fully and completely penetrate a piece of wood.
As he continued…he found himself focusing on his internal power and energy as he visualized driving the nail through the board, thus penetrating the wood entirely. So, I’m sitting here thinking…yeah, okay…you penetrated wood with a nail…is this supposed to be erotic or something?
I should have had more faith in him. He said…if one sets the goal at penetration during sex, then one will spill over into orgasm, which ends the experience. However, if we focus on pleasure, fulfillment and ecstasy as our intention or ‘goal’ then that is where we will put our energy. Hmmm…makes sense!
In case you were wondering, yes, he mastered the penetration of wood with only a nail and his bare hand! Just goes to show the power of our mind and energy working together!
The bottom line: visualize what you desire…communicate with your lover and create your intention…then let go and allow your fluid movement, sexual energy and deep passion to flow from your body…mmmm delicious!
