When it comes to sensuality and sexual energy, we may have been taught to be fearful of exploring these parts of ourselves. We may have been told that it's not proper or that we'll get in trouble if we do. But what if we were brave enough to reconnect with ourselves in this way, this time on our own terms and a focus on feeling good just for us?
If the idea of taking a deeper dive leaves you feeling a bit apprehensive, you are not alone. I know it doesn’t seem like it now, but the thought of exploring these things was terrifying to me! I had written myself off as someone who “that deep sexy stuff” wasn’t really for. That was easier for me than facing the fact I was scared of being judged, had lingering shame around even wanting to feel sexy, and didn’t have a clue how to even begin.
Self-love and self-nurturing are key when it comes to exploring our sensuality and sexual energy. By taking the time to nurture ourselves, we can begin to let go of the fears that have been holding us back. Take that a bit deeper even, we begin to observe how many of those fears may have come from something outside of ourselves. This can be a freeing experience, one that allows us to connect with our true desires. The feeling of embodied desire in our own skin is so delicious and powerful. It’s a journey to get there, but I promise you it’s worth it.
When we allow ourselves the freedom to explore our sensuality and sexual energy, we can begin to feel more alive, like we’ve discovered a precious treasure that’s been hiding. We can connect with our bodies in a new and exciting way. We can discover what brings us authentic pleasure and joy.
So, take a deep breath, give yourself grace, and allow yourself to explore. It may just be the most self-loving thing you do for yourself.
