For a person to be sexually repressed, is for them to lay dormant. To be walled off from true emotional and spiritual bliss with another being. This repression turns to frustration. That frustration will develop into an insidious disconnection from ones own sexual force, and overall flow of inner energy. Deep down, in each and every human being, is an ancient, primal longing for true connection; we’ve had a fire burning between our hips that radiates outward from our chest that seems like a never ending cosmic storm. This is a beautiful energy, never to be ashamed of, in fact, it should be harnessed and used. By nature, we are sexual beings, mixed with an expressive and imaginative spiritual obsession which finds immortality through love. To save ourselves from the never ending black void of death we can become “one” with another and reach bliss.
This all being said, for many of us it’s not as easy as breathing deep and having the courage to address the childhood issues that may stifle our sexual expression and imprint. Revisiting those issues however, is a warrior’s path that is available for all of us to walk. It is not a walk in the park to go down that path, yet I would bid you a promise that on the other side, is TRUE freedom.
Along this path we will encounter emotional obstacles which may seem insurmountable. And in order to move forward, first we must remember that these things are possible to work through. We must feel into the truth that we all deserve love and to be loved in return, most of all to love ourselves and our journey.
Steps can be made. For men: encouraging, protecting, feeling grounded and working at a goal, can start a rush of emotion, opening up the divine aspects of manhood; which will allow the male sexual essence to awaken in its masculine pursuits. These passionate actions can start a domino effect, which ignites the inner fire. The fire in the belly that fuels masculine expression.
For women: caregiving, nurturing, connecting to their powerful inner goddess, and creativity will evoke the feminine sexual power. Shedding away any layers of trauma, pain, and shadow, in oneself, or in the world around us. Creativity will bring a person back into their true self, and in tune with how they feel and how their body feels. For both sexes, this is incredibly important. Feeling how you desire to feel, after you have worked past the blocks of sexual repression to sexual freedom, is a liberating way of being. After the inner connection starts coming together – feeling more passionate in mind, body, soul – extend your thoughts and feelings to those close to you. Vulnerability is powerful.
I wouldn’t have you hide your power from the world. Be bold, be brash, be the catalyst of freedom for those around you. It is time to end sexual repression.

Awesome first post Colin!Comment by Michelle Bloom on February 5, 2017 at 6:04 am
Truly inspiring Colin! Being vulnerable does create self acceptance. It takes the mask of perfection away, showing us how imperfect we are, just as we should be.Comment by Sherry L on February 5, 2017 at 6:41 am

Beautifully said Colin! Your word’s are very inspiring and touched my heart❤ Thank you for putting this together to learn more about how vulnerability is truly the gateway to being authentic and the freedom to remove or masks.Comment by Roni Thompson on February 6, 2017 at 5:29 am
Great blog. I also watched Brene Brown’s TED Talk on Vulnerability and I just gave it a shot! Even though the outcome was not as I hoped, I am still going to stay open and positive.
I think you are very brave. I look forward to more posts.Comment by Jen on February 7, 2017 at 6:20 am
I am so impressed with your open-ness and willingness to be authentic. I have a lot of self-judgment and self-criticism where I measure myself against those who seem to “have it all together”. Thanks so much for sharing and paving the way for others to start shedding those huge weights of shame we carry around. I look forward to unloading some of my self-criticism and replacing it with self-love.Comment by Susana I Michaelis on February 10, 2017 at 4:22 am
