TOUCH THIS BODY

Touch this body in prayer
Touch this body in worship
For this is sacred ground

Approach with reverence
As you look upon the beauty laid before you
Rest your hand with tenderness
And feel
Feel your heart
Feel your heart open
Feel your heart open to the flow
Feel your heart open to the flow of love
Feel your heart open to the flow of love from a place deep within you
A place beyond you

In a silent moment acknowledge the holy within you
And allow your hands to tell of this
For in this moment of connection you see the mirror
The sacred reflected within you, through you
And as you touch another, they know, deep within, they know
A place beyond mind, they know, even for a moment
That which dwells within them

Touch this body in prayer
Touch this body in worship
Allow your hands to greet this skin, this heart, this mind, this being
Allow your hands to soothe the hurt, the pain it carries
Allow your hands to gently open it to receive the love offered
Allow your hands to be as a deep breath, a moment in, and the release, the relaxation
Allow your hands to tell of the beauty they feel
Allow your hands to slowly part the armour, to ease the mask away, to lighten the load it bears
Allow your hands to be the voice of that beyond you

Touch this body in prayer
Touch this body in worship
Breathe
Feel the pleasure
Feel the pleasure within you
Feel the pleasure within you stir
Feel the pleasure within you stir and flow
Feel the pleasure within you stir and flow into your hands
Allow your hands to tell of that which breathes and lives and burns within you
Allow your hands to slowly kindle this fire
To give it life
Each stroke a warming, a flame added
A liquid heat, spreading, opening, expanding
The life force flows, fills, expands
The boundaries of this body melt
We go beyond our flesh
We see that this physical casing is merely a portal
Its blood, its nerves, its muscles serve to take us
Take us deeper, higher
And then they are no more as the wave of pleasure engulfs us, wraps us in sensation, in emotion, in a moment of being that lasts an eternity, takes us into the swirling space where the Divine dances

Slowly we return
Slowly we feel our breath
Slowly we feel the weight of being
Lighter now
For every visit to that Sacred Temple of Pleasure leaves its shimmering within us

Touch this body in prayer
Touch this body in worship
For this is sacred ground


In the world of Conscious Sexuality we regard certain touch and massage experiences as being acts of worship.
We use the words massage and touch simply because we have no others, but these experiences go way beyond the general understanding and experience of massage.

Going beyond even that I'd like to offer a different perspective and possibility with Conscious Sensual Touch, Conscious Pleasure Energy, Conscious Sexual Touch etc.
We'll use the word massage because it's the closest we have.

Generally we see the roles of giver and receiver being quite set in this space.
And generally there is way more pleasure for the person receiving the massage.

Let's change something here.
There is a way of touching that is worshipping.
So the question is who is worshipping?
If I'm the person giving the massage, then it's me.
And I can use that space, that touch as a way for it become a sacred experience, a spiritual experience, a meditation for me.
Of course there's enormous benefit in this for the person receiving the massage.
And there's so much for me.

When I enter the space in this way, with the intention of connecting with something higher, something beyond me, of allowing it to be transcendent for me, a shift happens.
A deep shift in awareness.
An opening of a space within me, an acknowledgement of the energy coming through me.
Where is this coming from?
Source, Spirit, The Universe, God, The Goddess...

I come to you to pray.
For that is the manifestation of the energy, the coming into being of the intention.
You, your body, your being becomes the altar, the recipient of my prayer.
I open myself, elevate myself, connect myself.
And in so doing, I am able to offer you more.
And the more I can be open, the more I can be vulnerable, the more I have to offer you.
My body, my hands become a vessel for this holy energy.
And as it flows through me, it touches me, heals me, calms me, relaxes me, arouses me.
As it flows through me to you.
This becomes a temple that we create, a space that we weave filled with love, with giving, receiving, sharing...

This brings up a beautifully different perspective on healing as well.
We generally heal to receive more.
Here, we heal to give more.
Releasing my pain, my blockages, my resistances, my withholds for the purpose of allowing more to flow through me.
And going beyond that to the knowing that the purpose of more flowing through me allows me to give more.
Which allows you to receive more.
And going beyond even that.
It allows me, in that space, to go deeper into myself.
To make my prayer, my meditation, my giving more.

And in the giving is the receiving.
Not in the way we mostly see that, that it's good to give.
But there's a sacred intention.
And I have to be open to receive before I can give, truly give.
Anybody can do massage, anybody can do healing.
This is becoming, becoming massage, becoming touch, becoming healing, becoming conscious, becoming awake, becoming aware, becoming connected, becoming love.

And the in the giving is the receiving.
