This week, we’re talking sex. Yes, SEX! I know that this may be uncomfortable for some of you. I get it…. And this is exactly why I want to address it. I’m ready for us to no longer feel shame, blame, apology or guilt for sexual beings. We need to embrace our full selves in order to truly live our purpose and love life. So at the risk of some of you quickly deleting this email – or worse (gasp) – unsubscribing, I want to address this topic full on!
A couple of experiences this week made me realize that as much as I talk to you about loving yourself, I’ve never talked about honoring your body, embracing your sexuality and celebrating your frisky self. Your sexuality is as much a part of you as your brain and your heart. We are sexual beings and it is only when we embrace this side of ourselves that we can confidently walk with pride in this world.
Unfortunately, many of us have felt ashamed of our sexuality, our genitals or our sexual preference. One of my male friends was embarrassed to shower in the high school locker room because he wasn’t as well endowed as the other guys. One of my female friends felt ashamed to tell her new boyfriend how many lovers she’d had. Maybe you feel fat and dread being naked with someone new. Maybe you masturbated as a child and then learned that it was against your religion. Maybe you had an experience of homosexuality, like I did, but feared that it would be unacceptable to your family. Most of us have had some experience that taught us to hide our sexual selves. And in doing so, we’ve cut off a piece of who we are.
You DESERVE to love your body. You will feel EMPOWERED when you can celebrate your sexuality. And you will LOVE flirting with life! In this week’s PurposeFULL Monday I bring this subject “out” into the public so that you can release your prior fears about sex – and then watch as your inner spirit fiercely takes this week on!
