Chelsie Diadhiou is a New York based writer, editor, and mother on a mission to inspire women to use their innate power to consciously create dynamic lives. From motherhood and sexuality, to lifestyle and culture, she explores various themes in her quest to stimulate thought provoking discussion about what it means to be a woman in today’s world. Her philosophy is that everything a woman does must come from a space deep within.
“Sex is a sacred act that is Spiritual in nature. It is a silent form of worship.”
What do prayer and sex have in common? A lot more than you may think.
Whatever religion or belief system you follow, prayer is most likely a part of your spiritual practice. But what about sex?
THE SPIRITUALITY-SEX CONNECTION
History shows that humans have used some form of ritual to express gratitude for their Creator since the earliest days of life on Earth.
A quick study of the world’s most revered ancient cultures (particularly, the Greeks, Egyptians and Hindus) shows that spirituality and sex were both central to life – there was no separating the two.
Each left behind scores of hieroglyphs and elaborately carved statues depicting men and women in various sexual positions. There’s even an Ancient Egyptian papyrus discovered in the early 19th century, that is known as the‘Erotic Papyrus.’ It was dubbed as “the world’s first men’s mag,” (move over, Playboy!) with several pictures of naked, contorted bodies.Clearly, our ancestors were getting it on!
All that changed during the Victorian Era, when sexual activity was shamed as dirty and sinful by religious authorities. The subject was so taboo, even talking about it was frowned upon! Sadly, we are still living with the effects of this today, having lost most of our deeper understanding of lovemaking.
SEX IS NOURISHING AND SOUL SATISFYING
“Like the food we eat, sex is essential for overall health and wellbeing. It is nourishing to the mind, body, and Soul.”
We pray before we eat, to show our appreciation for the nourishment we are about to receive, and the hands that prepared the meal. So why don’t we give thanks for sex? After all, it is JUST as beneficial to our health and wellness.
Sex helps to strengthen the immune system, in addition to alleviating stress and many other ailments. Unlike other forms of exercise, it is revitalizing and fun! Indeed, a good session is like pressing a reset button, giving you renewed energy. With all of these amazing benefits (and many more), doesn’t it make sense to bless your partner, with whom you share such a vital and satisfying experience?
“There is something so Divine about sharing your body – in essence, your Soul – with someone.”
HOW TO PRAY BEFORE YOU LAY
TO THE LADIES:
Praise him for the way he uses his energy and focus to bring you pleasure. Look your lover in his eyes, and acknowledge that he has created a safe space for you, opening up to him with absolute trust. He will no doubt work that much harder to please you!
“The opening of her legs – and her sacred flower – is a declaration of trust.”
TO THE MEN:
Thank her for having faith in your ability to make her feel safe, secure, and satisfied. Worship her with every stroke!
When two people make love, they exchange energies that help nourish, sustain, and even heal them both physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Sex can also help to strengthen the bond between you and your significant other. So the next time you’re with your partner and things start getting hot and heavy, pause for a moment and show some gratitude.
Thank your lover in advance and they will thank you in bed!
