Work in the Tantric field is largely misunderstood and for many, the misunderstanding is that, sexual arousal and fantastic sex are the main focus of Tantra. This misconception stems from the fact that Tantra accepts sexual energy and harnesses it as a route to higher consciousness, this has been largely misinterpreted in the West, as meaning Tantra merely focuses on achieving sexual ecstasy. It has subsequently gained a reputation of being outside the pale of respectability and in the minds of many it brands female Tantric Healers as sex workers and male Tantric healers as sexual predators. The fact that Tantra treats sexual energy as an ally, rather than something to be suppressed or hushed up makes many people feel uncomfortable with the concept of the therapy. This stems from lack of understanding. Tantric work does not deny sexual energy, it embraces sexual energy, but that does not mean unenlightened media defined sex. In the work I do sexual energy is used as ignition for firing the Kundalini energy, the body’s biological energy system, merging it with universal energy. Indeed the work I do can help a person enjoy their sex life to its fullest potential, but it is far wider reaching than that. It can help to break down barriers of guilt or fear, and remove self-imposed or limiting cultural and social boundaries.
The word Tantra is a Sanskrit word which means, to weave, to transform through methods, and to transform poison into nectar. This description of Tantra offers a far better insight into the true transformational nature of the discipline. My work is all about helping people to gain release from negative trauma and transform their life, emerging like a butterfly from a chrysalis.
When entangled with unhappiness from the past, people often adopt patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, fear, chronic illness and unfulfilled relationships. This is because if negative emotions as a result of trauma are not resolved, they physically embed as a cellular memory in the body cells, preventing these cells from playing their optimum part by constant biochemical entanglement and communication taking place within the body. These memories not only ‘switch off’ these cells, but lead to emotional and physical disease years after the events originally occurred. What Tantric Journey looks to achieve is the optimal flow of energy in the body that is renewable and expandable.
