Your Sex chakra or Swadhishtana Chakra plays a crucial role in your quest for spiritual development. Sex energy can be transmuted into spiritual unity and love. Once the sex energy transforms, it feeds the upper chakras. Thus, sex energy is like food for the upper chakras and helps in the smooth functioning of the brain and the nervous system. The transmutation of the Sex chakra is extremely useful, whether one is celibate or not.
Part of the sexual energy is transformed to a higher form of pranic energy to be used for spiritual, intelligent and creative functions. It is necessary to transmute sex energy, not suppress it. When sex energy moves from the lower chakras to the heart, the throat and the Crown chakra or Sahasrara chakra, sex energy transforms into divine oneness, intelligence, enlightenment, love and kindness.
The transformation of this energy brings the lower energies up to the higher energy centers and the lower energies are transformed into energies with a higher frequency. This high frequency pranic energy is what ensures greater efficiency and effectiveness of the brain.
Arhatic yoga teaches the science and art of transforming sex energy into creative energy and a higher form of pranic energy to activate brain cells.
Diverse schools of thought on Sex and the role of the Swadhishtana Chakra
Among the diverse schools of thought, one school of thought believes that sex is dirty and the instinct must be suppressed. With this kind of mindset, spiritual enlightenment is impossible. The reason? If the Sex chakra/ Swadhishtana Chakra is inhibited or suppressed, it cannot go up to the upper chakras. And without the transmutation of sex energy, the activation of the Crown chakra, the centre of illumination and divine oneness cannot be achieved satisfactorily.
Another extreme school of thinking is the liberal sexual school where sex energy is simply wasted. When sex energy is wasted to a large extent, little sex energy is left for transformation for the use by the upper chakras, and especially the crown chakra.
A middle path is necessary to achieve the right results. Transmutation of sex energy does not require a partner, it can be done solo. The right mindset is the one that considers sex as natural and healthy. This mindset has been embraced by the Northern Taoist School. Sex is not dirty. Sex is in fact sacred. And when done properly, manifests as the divine union of 2 souls, oneness with their higher souls and oneness with the universe.
To practice the transmutation of sex energy, a healthy and wholesome attitude towards sex is very important. Celibacy is a personal choice, but it is important for the practitioner to consider sex sacred and natural.
Mastery of Sex Energy
Lord Krishna was the avatar during the period of Taurus, for the Spring Equinox and Scorpio, for the Autumn Equinox. When Lord Krishna’s character was questioned by Rajah Parikshit, the answer was that Lord Krishna never lost a single drop of his semen when having sex, even though he had numerous wives and gopis. Lord Krishna stands for the mastery of sexual energy, the transforming of sexual energy into spiritual energy and achieving divine oneness.
Concept of Brahmacharya
The word Brahmacharya which is often understood as sexual celibacy has a much deeper meaning. While Acharya means the one who practices, Brahman means God. Thus, the word Brahman-Acharya means the one who practices oneness with God by transforming sexual energy into spiritual energy.
Here’s giving sex a practical approach: Sex, sweetness and intimacy are all important but the need for a functional brain is also important. The regular practice of Superbrain Yoga helps in the utilization of sex energy by the upper chakras. The book ‘Superbrain Yoga‘by Master Choa Kok Sui contains more information on the principles and techniques. The regular and daily practice of Superbrain Yoga is required for the activation of brain cells. Sex energy ensures the transformation of the sex energy for psychological and spiritual development.
The Sex chakra/ Swadhishtana Chakra is the center of sexual instinct. Strong Sex chakras mean strong sexual drive. The Throat chakra or Vishuddhi chakra and the Sex chakra are inter-connected. The Throat chakra is the center for higher creativity and is the higher correspondence of the Sex chakra. And that is why very creative, artistic and intelligent people have strong sexual drives and are therefore often embroiled in all sorts of sex scandals. It is believed that very creative people cannot be sexually impotent or inhibited.
When priests and yogis experience sexual desire, it may not be there sexual desire at all. It could be the sexual desire of others who are attracted to them.
The Sex chakra is the physical creative center for procreation.
The Sex chakra ensures the smooth and healthy functioning of the sex organs, the bladder and the urethra. It also affects the legs, the throat and the head.
The Sex chakra and Meng Mein chakra produce orange prana when a person urinates. This prana is used in expelling and eliminating waste matter from the body.
The malfunctioning of the Ajna chakra, throat chakra and the Basic chakra or Mooladhara chakra can adversely affect the Sex chakra.
Conditions caused from a malfunctioning Sex chakra
Enlarged Prostate Gland
Other Sexual Ailments
A healthy Sex chakra ensures a healthy Throat chakra, which is also necessary for the development of the mental faculty. Therefore, the treatment of mentally retarded people requires the treatment of the Sex chakra for a prolonged period of time.
The healthy functioning of the Throat chakra and other chakras in the head area requires transmuted sex energy. Mentally retarded people have depleted Sex chakras and consequently their throat, ajna, forehead and Crown chakras are also depleted. In aged people, the sex and the Basic chakra or Mooladhara chakra are depleted and that is the reason they become senile.
Congestion or depletion of the Sex chakra can lead to enlarged prostate. While the congestion of the Sex chakra can be observed in the celibate, the depletion of the Sex chakra can be seen in the aged men.
Myoma and its Causes
Myoma is caused in patients from an improper attitude towards sex and sexual inhibition. The Sex chakra is congested and filled with dirty red energy. Sex energy is suppressed and is not fully released even during sexual intercourse. The sex energy does not flow freely to other chakras, as it does in normal people. This manifests as Myoma. Women who have had sexually negative experiences develop sexual ailments. Even nuns may be sexually afflicted because of sexual abstinence without consciously or unconsciously sublimating the sex energy.
