There’s a chance you might not even remember what I’m talking about here.
It’s been sooooo loooooong!
You can head back to the beginning of this series for a refresher in what I mean by getting back into your sexy.
The short version?
These are techniques designed to get you out of your mind and into your body, with the purpose of stopping the overanalysis of our crazy monkey mind.
Side note: if you think I’m exaggerating about the monkey-mind, spend a day watching how your thoughts bounce around without any consistency or making any actual sense in how contradictory they are. This is not to say the mind isn’t useful. But ideally, we would be the ones running it, as opposed to it running us.
Where was I?
In my last post, I was talking about how winter sometimes makes it hard to connect with our body.
It’s all those layers of clothing, getting out of wack with all the holiday food, maybe even that little extra weight…
It kind of makes us feel all sucky about ourselves. Pretty soon we start being judgmental and beating ourselves with a stick.
So what are we doing then? Fighting with our body, instead of remembering all the ways in which it takes care of us.
And all the ways in which being in our body feels delicious.
One very effective way to reconnect with this deliciousness is simply… moaning.
Trust me and try this out.
You can bash me in the comments afterwards if you don’t like it or it doesn’t work for you.
To begin, find a space in which you feel comfortable making these noises and abandoning yourself to your senses.
Once you’re comfortably settled, close your eyes.
Pay attention to what your body feels like. You don’t have to stay entirely still.
If there’s a window and you feel the suns rays on you, or you’re near a heater. How does that feel?
Wiggle your toes, your fingers. How do they feel?
Focus on how your clothing feels against your skin.
Stretch out like you do in the morning.
Always paying attention to how this feels in the body, without thinking about it.
Just focus on the sensations.
And as they build, perhaps you’ll feel like moaning. Maybe it’s not an intense moan, but it’s there.
Let yourself go.
Once you start, it’ll be easier to keep going.
The moaning itself will intensify the sensations.
You might feel like shouting a resounding…
Try not to censor yourself, even if you start feeling aroused or the noises you make resemble those that come out of your mouth during sex.
This is about exploring our body, what feels good, letting ourselves be curious and letting go.
What’s your reaction?
