When you are trying to make a difficult decision, there are often many and complex factors to take into account. Our minds are intelligent, but they can also easily get tripped up on things like what other people want from us and what we think we should want. Tap into what you truly desire with this meditation that honors the mind, the heart, and the pelvic floor as valid sources of information.
Connect to the sacred sexual and erotic energy living in your low belly, pelvis, and genitals. This energy is related to our desire, our connection with others, our pleasure, playfulness, and the possibility of personal growth. It is a powerful part of who we are, whether or not we share that energy sexually with anyone else. Breathe into this space to honor and listen to it, inviting its guidance in our lives. This is a very simple mindfulness-based meditation, there is no explicit material here.
