So here’s the deal. There’s not that much information out there about wellness and intimacy. What role does intimacy play in our whole wellness…and what if it is an area we know we could use a little guidance and support?
Health + Intimacy = ?
or better yet – what about the question: can true wellness be achieved without intimacy?
Heath – Intimacy = ?
Or at the very least – how does intimacy impact my wellness journey?
Wellness + Intimacy = …..
The truth is intimacy is often overlooked. It is also true that intimacy is often one of the first things to “go” when we get overly stressed out or when we’re facing illness or change.
For a long time when I was recovering from Wellness disease and chronic illness I didn’t even have true intimacy on my radar – I just wanted to survive! And I hoped that my incredibly supportive, amazing (and let’s be honest…patient!) husband would hang in there while it all sorted itself out.
But we can find health returning, and life returning to normal and find that that light, that fire doesn’t just automatically reignite along the way to wellness. So what gives?
These questions and others let me to the work of Allie Theiss, a wonderful woman and FORCE in the world of energetics, healing and Sex. Her book, Out of Body Ecstasy shares the ins and outs of energetic intimacy – what helps, what hurts, and how to experience intimate energy safely, passionately, and do so in a way that protects and builds on your own wellness along the way.
I was thrilled to have Allie as a guest for our Shift Series where she talks about inviting intimacy back into your life – if it has been dimmed or dormant. In this guest post – she dives in deeper into the topic of energetic intimacy. So if you’re ready to peel back the veil on energetics and sexuality – we invite you in.
Thank you Allie – and I look forward to your comments and reflections on the topic in the Comment section below.
Sharing Intimate Energy
“Pay attention to whom you share your intimate energy with. Intimacy at this level intertwines your aural energy with the aural energy of the other person. These powerful connections, regardless of how insignificant you think they are, leave spiritual debris, particularly within people who do not practice any type of cleansing, physical, emotional or otherwise.
The more you interact intimately with someone, the deeper the connection and the more of their aura is intertwined with yours.
Imagine the confused aura of someone who sleeps with multiple people and carries around these multiple energies? What they may not realize is that others can feel that energy which can repel positive energy and attract negative energy into your life.
I always say, never sleep with someone you wouldn’t want to be.”
The name of the original author of the above passage is Lisa Chase Patterson. How she described the intimate nature of exchanging energy with another during sex is something that I’ve been lecturing about for years. Sharing intimate energy is more than an exchange of bodily fluids and emotions. It’s the transfer of all of you: personal energy, emotions, physical health, and mental sharpness. Your connection to everybody (including the inner you) and everything is intertwined with your energy body. It’s imperative you keep it healthy.
When you have sex with anyone your energy body merges with their energy body. It doesn’t matter if it is OBE sex, physical sex, oral sex — anytime you are intimate with another person (or people) you absorb their energy and they absorb your energy.
If you have sex with positive, loving, uplifting people – that wonderful energy is absorbed and uplifts you. If you have sex with negative, pessimistic, unstable, depressive people – that energy will have you crashing down and WILL INTERFERE in day-to-day life.
Keep in mind that if this person sleeps with a variety of people, they absorb their energy. A married man or woman has absorbed their spouses energy and will mix it with your energy if you are the other man or woman. It vice versa.
So the next time you jump into bed with someone or want to hook up for OBE sex – keep in mind that unless they cleanse their energy on a regular basis, you will be getting intimate with whomever they have been intimate with. And that my friends, is bad for your health.
