Sacred sex is not all kinds of sex, and by learning about the “dark” forces from an energetic perspective, you are able to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy sexual feelings often misconstrued as “sacred sex”.
Sexual energy is very powerful for better or worse and one of the primary control mechanisms for occult hostile forces to feed upon.
In this day and age, there is more and more talk about “Sacred Sex” and “Tantra”. Many of these teachings and workshops help people work through their sexual wounds, trauma, shame, and guilt and that is encouraging to see.
However, as I do more research, I’ve noticed that the emphasis in the Neo-Tantra world is often focused on reaching powerful multi-orgasms, sexual bliss, feeling sexy, having great sex, and an over-simplified idea of “love” and “heart connection”.
“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.” – Lisa Chase Patterson
Sacred Sex vs Neo-Tantra
Education and open discussions about sexuality are very important as part of our healing and awakening journey.
In the end “sex sells”. Be it in advertisements to make you buy a product you don’t need, or as “spiritual teachings” to promise you sexual bliss and potency.
It is important to keep in mind that many of these tantric teachings have become distorted, diluted, and “hijacked” by others to put their spin on things without considering some deeper aspects of our reality.

Most ancient spiritual teachings have been suppressed and distorted over thousands of years.
Yoga in the modern world has become a billion dollar industry, leaving out immense knowledge of the deeper esoteric teachings. The same has happened with Tantra teachings and sacred sex.
A complete spiritual teaching based on Truth will not only show you and teach you “the way out”. It will also show you the path towards union with the Divine.
True Tantric practices will transform your sexual center and not just the emotional, heart-centered sexuality relating to a partner.
True Tantra teachings will also show you the traps and pitfalls from a non-physical perspective. This “dark side of sexuality” is where occult forces can influence our sexual desires and we may mistake them as our own.

Why Is it important to learn About The Dark Sides Of Sexuality?
Through the years, the teachings of true Tantra have been fragmented. Much has been omitted to lead the seeker away from the true power of our sexuality that can be achieved when expressed in union with the Divine.
This confusion happens often in Tantra communities, polyamory circles, and “conscious festivals” where people feed off the attention of the other sex. They may engage in sexual feeding and justify “sex addiction” through spiritual terms when, in fact, “something else” is working through them.
By learning about the “dark” forces from an energetic perspective, you are able to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy sexual feelings often misconstrued as “sacred sex”.
3 Tips For Distinguishing Between Light And Dark Tantra
#1 Be willing to learn
It’s really a matter of integrity and truth to educate yourself about what disturbs you. That is what “being conscious” implies, especially when attempting to teach others about conscious sex and sexuality.
#2 Be vulnerable, humble, and radically honest with yourself
We are all works in progress and the learning never stops.
#3 Keep an open mind because this is tricky territory
Any Sex Educator or Tantric Teacher who brings awareness to this topic could be labeled a “fear monger” or judged as a “crazy person”.
Conscience, Truth (whatever it may turn out to be) and Aspiration to the Divine are the main ingredients for the sincere seeker, student, and teacher alike who wish to awaken and help others to awaken.
