When’s the last time you appreciated your sexuality? Or do you take it for granted? If you’re sexually active, with or without a partner and having positive experiences, then I’m certain you’d say that yes, you appreciate it. But how fully and mindfully do you appreciate your sexuality?
Before we can really appreciate something, we have to understand what it is.
Sexuality is the capacity to have erotic experiences and responses. It’s comprised of: Your body and physical pleasure. Your spirit and your authentic expression or style. Your heart and your emotions toward yourself and your partner. Your mind and your thoughts, attitude & fantasies about sexual activity.
What if one or more of these areas were compromised and you were no longer able to enjoy your full sexuality?
What if your body betrayed you with illness that prevented you from experiencing pleasure? What if your spirit had been traumatized and was hidden somewhere deep inside? What if your heart had suffered great pain and you were frightened to feel? What if the thoughts of your mind were mired in shame and guilt that kept you imprisoned?
Take a moment to imagine what your life would be like if your sexuality was compromised. For me the words bleak, hollow and lifeless are the first that come to mind.
So, do you appreciate your sexuality? If you consider yourself sexually alive in all areas, then you are in an enviable position. If like many people, you don’t feel that you’re truly thriving then appreciation can help you nurture your sexuality to new heights. With awareness you can grow appreciation and eroticism.
Reflect on the pleasures your body feels and appreciate it. Reflect on how you are able to express your authentic style and appreciate it. Reflect on your ability to feel emotion and appreciate it. Reflect on your positive thoughts and attitudes and appreciate them.
Appreciate all your senses that soak in the sensuous. Appreciate all the nerve endings of your skin that feel pleasure. Appreciate your genitals and the erotic, orgasmic pleasures that abound. Appreciate your nervous system and it’s transmission of pleasure signals. Appreciate the areas of your brain that regulate hormones and process emotions.
Above all, appreciate yourself and your willingness to nurture your sexuality by reading blogs like this. If you have an area of concern, appreciate your courage to reach out.
Live a Happy, Sexy Life!
