As a child I wanted to live a spiritually based life. And since I was raised in a conservative Christian cult, I naturally sought spiritual wisdom through the Bible. I read it from cover to cover the year I turned 12 years of age. But unfortunately, I didn’t experience the spiritual awakening that I hoped for. Instead, as I read the last words of Revelations, I felt sick to my stomach. That was not what I was expecting and I assumed there was something terribly wrong with me.
It would be years before I discovered my own authentic spiritual path, and perhaps not surprisingly, my path turned out to be very unique and controversial.
Over time, I came to understand that my sexuality and my spirituality were connected. That was certainly not something that the cult taught. Instead, our religious cult taught sexual shame.
Fortunately I left the cult when I was 19 years of age. But unfortunately the dogma remained embedded in the deepest recesses of my heart, mind and soul for a long time. The things we are taught from birth can be pretty difficult to shake – especially when the training insists there is something inherently wrong with us.
And that is exactly what sexual shame accomplishes. It communicates to us that we are inherently wrong for having sexual desires. But nothing could be further from the truth.
In fact, in my experience, our sexuality is a pure and sacred part of ourselves. It is sexual shame that takes sex to someplace dark and destructive.
Healing my sexual shame took years and I eventually experienced a rebirth of sorts. I don’t know how else to describe the contrast between who I was when I was mired in shame and who I am today living free of sexual shame (at least for the most part!).
I recently shared my own healing journey and the ways I help my coaching clients to heal their sexual shame in a video you can watch below.
Here is a sample of some of the topics I cover:
Sacred Sex: How to Use the Body to Transcend the Body.
Self-Pleasuring Exercises for Healing Sexual Trauma
Why Nature IS the Divine Feminine
How Spring Bathes us in Divine Sexuality
And I detail my Five Steps to Say Your No while creating MORE heart connection:
Here’s to you living your life free of sexual shame and fully empowered to integrate your sexuality and your spirituality!
