Give yourself permission to feel.

Do you give yourself permission to stop all momentum and feel the sensations in your body?  I don’t mean quickies with your lover and hurried moments of masturbation but actually sitting still and feeling what is happening inside your skin and tapping into the amazing amounts of sensation that you hold – the pleasure, the pain, the emotion.  Maybe, like most of us you live constantly trapped in your mind jumping constantly between past and future and never really experiencing the present?


When we breathe deeper and more fully we relax and when we relax we release tension. Releasing tension creates more sensation, more sensation creates more pleasure and wow, the orgasmic energy starts!  Even without being touched and with no genital stimulation life force energy can radiate throughout the whole body allowing us to sink in, feel more sensation and open up to pleasure.

It’s simple and yet so deeply profound.

These small moments of peace from the mind enable us to tap into the deeper wisdom of the body where true pleasure is stored.

For me, it’s a daily practice of noticing what is happening to my body.  Do I need to dance?  Do I need to stop and take deep breathes?  Do I need to feel connected with my partner and engage in conscious touch?  Do I need to feel my emotions, cry or laugh?

Start today and open up to pleasure.

My hope is that you also take the time, maybe just for a few deep breathes, to stop your busy life and open up to the wisdom of your own body and begin the process of opening up to pleasure.
