I Accessed the Ability to Feel

by Drea

The first time I tried Orgasmic Meditation, I realized how numb I was. I just lay there with my pants off, having my clitoris stroked, and felt nothing. Yet, I still felt like I was in the right place. It felt natural. Something inside me said to keep going. 

Consistency Through Orgasmic Meditation

I never had any consistency in my life before Orgasmic Meditation. The (Orgasmic Meditation) OM container gave me a place to see myself, over and over, under the same conditions. With OM, I knew I could go in and completely give myself to the practice for 15 minutes. I knew that, for 15 minutes, I could lie down and let go. I could be inside the practice and let it change me. I didn’t have to worry about anything. 

I get so much done in a day now because I’ve created containers of focused attention for whatever it is that I’m doing. Orgasmic Meditation gave me both the framework for structuring things and the understanding that there is something sacred about this structure. It showed me the sacredness of ritual and brought that sacredness to my day-to-day life. 

It’s also trained me to communicate my needs. By asking for OMs and adjustments within my OMs, I have found a new ability to ask for my desires. Being able to ask and feel okay while asking has affected all of my relationships. 

Feeling All Of Myself

Before Orgasmic Meditation, I would ask for things in a watery way to avoid the discomfort of feeling rejected. Now, I’ve become much more efficient with my requests. If I ask for something, and the person says no, I can just say “thank you” and move on. I can even feel when someone who has said yes to me acquiesced and doesn’t want to do what I’ve asked. I have no issues with saying no to requests now. I don’t feel bad or guilty like I used to.

Before OM, every emotion I felt had to have a story or a reason. I could only have a feeling if there were a reason to have it. For example, if my mom was angry with me, I had a right to feel sad, so I had a reason to cry. But when I cried in my OMs, there wasn’t any story or reason for me to cry. I might cry, laugh, or feel a sensation just because that’s what was happening in my body. Now, I know that my purpose in life is to feel. That’s all I have to do. If I’m feeling in my body, I’m in my purpose. Everything I need is right there. I don’t have to reach for it. 

Embracing Stillness in OM

I used to grasp. I used to feel anxious about what to do next. But now I know that all I need to do is be still and feel. There’s just something that needs to be felt in that moment. The kind of dancer I am and the kind of dance that I teach moves in and out of the realm of emotion. So, in order for me to be successful in my work, I have to feel. Orgasmic Meditation gave me access to that.
