Love, Sex, and Spirituality
Last month we talked about the sacred wound
and its effect on love. This month The Spiritual Path
addresses love, sex,
and spirituality - the expression of physical love. Is sex just for our pleasure? Or, is it for
expressing our love for the other? Or both? Can sex be
spiritual? And what is intimacy anyway? These are the questions
addressed - and hopefully answered - in The Spiritual Path this
Phillip, my spirit guide, looks at the difference
between physical sex and spiritual sex in "Phillip's
Wisdom," so be sure to read what he has to say. In
"Ways You Can Be of Service to Your Life and Others" we
explore intimacy and how to achieve it. We also talk about who is
really in charge of the timing of a new relationship. And
please keep reading to catch my article, "Sacred Sex."
It talks about how, as a single woman, I feel about love, sex,
and spirituality, and also gives you an experience of sacred sex
in an excerpt from my book 23 Days/A Celtic Journey.
As with all the articles in The Spiritual
Path you are encouraged to share them as well as share the
entire publication. Please do be kind and fair and adhere to the

Sex, or the bonding of the energies
through the physical bodies, can be undertaken for its physical
pleasure alone. This, however, is to be understood by the
participants: when the energy of one's body is mixed with the
energy of another
through deep physical contact, those energies stay co-mingled for
a period of time. While many humans choose to participate in sex
without the joy of love, this causes a sense of loss of the
personality self or a sense of confusion because there is not a
strong understanding of self. When there is not a sense of self,
the choice is to find self in others to ease a feeling of
aloneness. Sex can remove barriers in the psyche as the physical
bodies unite, thus giving the individual participants a sense of
who they are, but it a false sense of security.
As growth progresses and the individual realizes the energetic
exchange between partners during a sexual union, the individual
will no longer seek union to find self, but instead to share
self. This is a complete opposite approach and will be of greater
importance to those who are knowingly on the spiritual path.
Here the exchange of energy through the coupling of the physical
bodies is for experiencing the Oneness, the very essence of the
spiritual life. When this is the purpose the physical pleasure is
increased and the emotional bond strengthened. This is the true
expression of love and is where intimacy is found.
This can be achieved through aligning the intention with the
purpose of the coupling, which can take place with a partner of
the opposite gender, the same gender, with a beloved in spirit
world, or - with the proper knowledge - with a spirit guide or
god or goddess.
To align with the proper intention requires the releasing of the
human to its greater Self to allow Divine Love to infuse into and
through the human body. This requires both a discipline and total
surrender, which brings all beings involved completely into the
present moment where there is only awareness of that which is
taking place where even the smallest movement has ever lasting
This then will bring the sexual union to Love and deepen the
spiritual path. It will also provide pleasure for the physical
body that produces immeasurable joy for the human.

Ways You Can Be of
Service To Yourself and Others
Being of service to the world begins with
taking good care of ourselves, which means honoring ourselves in
intimacy. Here are a few thoughts on the subject:
- Slow down. Yes, you. So you met someone
who swept you off your feet and your hormones are jumping. I
know, I know, but love at first sight works out better in
movies than in real life. Granted sometimes it does work
out, but the majority of the time somewhere around that
three month mark, we start finding out that, although we may
have a lot of chemistry and the sex is good, we really don't
like the other person all that much. Someone's going to get
- We are both human and spirit beings.
You may connect on a deep spirit level, but life together
does not work on the human level. You can only find that out
as you spend time together.
- Flowers, candy, candlelight, sweet
words do not make for love. These are nice, but watch the
action, not the words. Why would you sleep with someone who
says one thing and does something else? Sleeping together is
temporary. The love you want is greater and lasting. Don't
- Men and women do not think alike. We
each have our own language, which can make for
miscommunication, especially in the beginning of a
relationship. Men may not like what I'm about to say, but in
the end they will thank me, because the truth is we all want
the same - to be loved, valued, and respected. It's men who
taught me this truth: It's the woman's job to set the pace
toward the bedroom. Just because your body is ready and
there's chemistry and you think this is your soulmate, do
not jump into bed with this guy. Give the bond between you
time to create something special. I'm not saying you have to
wait for marriage. In fact, I think that's a bad idea, but
do not be in a hurry. Enjoy the sensual pleasure of taking
your time to see if this man is worthy of you.
Sex is sacred. Let's start there.
I haven't always felt this way. I came of age
in the 1960s when love and sex were given freely, and we thought
we could have both without commitment or repercussions. As one man I know said, "We were the
generation after the pill and before HIV."
We loved and made love with abandon, and I
have to admit there's still a wee part of me that wishes I were
still that free. But I'm not. I suppose the real-life issues of
STDs had something to with my mind change, but in truth it goes
much deeper. It has more to do with once I gained knowledge of
something, I can't go back, and I've learned that sex is sacred.
It's too important to take frivolously or for any other reason
than to connect with the God/the Universe/Spirit . . . the
Somewhere in the back of my mind I always
knew this, but I put it aside because I wanted what I wanted when
I wanted it. Fortunately, as I aged, I grew into a wee bit of
wisdom and I came to understand the deep commitment sex requires
of us. It requires us to be true to ourselves.
That sounds easy enough - on the surface -
but look deeper and it gets tougher. Being true to yourself is a
pretty big order. It means we have to know who we are and look
straight into the eyes of the demons we pretend don't haunt us.
It means we cannot use sex just for its sheer pleasure, or to
comfort our fears, or to release us from thinking, or to make us
feel loved or safe, or for a dozen other reasons. It means we can
no longer lie to ourselves. No siree. It just won't work. It's
that commitment to self thing.
We have to strip away the pretensions and
come naked to our partner with our heart open with pure and
unstained love and without our fears or expectations or even our
dreams. We must lay aside all that we think we are and allow our
true essence to flow freely into the other. Then, and only then,
will we know what lovemaking truly is and the sheer ecstasy of
It is here, where the physical expression of
our bodies unite with our beloved that together we unite with the
Beloved. It is here that one kiss reverberates through every cell
and a single caress echoes across ancient memories reawakened. In
this moment, we become truly present with all that is, all that
ever was, and all that ever will be. It is in this infusion of
energy as I, woman, receive you into my body and the beloved
becomes the Beloved. We unite not just with one another, but with
every lover, and we unite with that which we most long for -
ourselves, and in doing so, we satisfy that need for belonging,
that yearning for our soul's home. And we become complete.
This bonding is born of love with commitment
to ourselves individually, to each other, and to the third soul
of love that encompasses us. It is in this third soul that we
find the true sacredness of ourselves and each other; it is the
love that transcends our humanness and takes us to ecstasy as we
unite with the Beloved where we reach the heavens and sail on a
I attribute my understanding of sacred sex to
a man who broke my heart open to greater love, and who gave me
gifts of the experiences I wrote about in my book 23 Days A
Celtic Journey, pps. 140 -141. This excerpt tells you how I
experience sacred sex:
Magical is this land,
Land on the coast of the
I feel Wales magic in my,
Feel it with each cell of my
body that is me, as
You, my king, come closer to
I bow before you now my Lord,
Man that I love, and
Give my hand over to you.

Pull to you this jewel that
Into your body I move now,
No longer separate we.

of being we,
Bodies no longer belonging to
you or to me,
Cells once in you now live in
Cells of me now live in you,
Changes in these patterns we
once called you and me,
Changes that do not change
when to our own homes we go, and
Try to live our lives as best
Without the other near.
It is when I try to forget
At first I will not remember
To forget you is as deep as I
myself go, until
I remember this night in

I will remember then
I am you and
You are me,
No longer separate we, and
Life for us will never again
be the same,
For life in all its forms has
Yet changed it has not at
Not your life, not mine,
Our lives, they have not

Yet changed they have,
Changed they have indeed.
