Charging up your chakras with Tantra ❀

sexy valentino on couchThe primary focus of Tantra yoga should be enjoyment and pure energetic healing! Do not worry if you are a novice or if you have not felt sexual energy in ages. The goal should be healing, bodily awakenings, awareness of your own energy and the opening up of your entire Chakra bodies.
At the beginning of most tantra ceremonies you can either begin staring into the eyes of your partner or offering your special guest a healing and deep tissue massage to simply relax the body and establish a state of mutual trust and bonding.

I use an everything but the kitchen sink approach to my tantra healings because the chakras respond to smell, breath, touch, crystals, sound and pulsation exercises.

At the bottom of our tailbone is our Kundalini shakti our seat of bliss so we want to breathe awareness into our tail bone area and constantly apply gentle and rhythmical pressure so that we are consciously activating our kundalini shakti. Once we gently awaken our kundalini we want to guide the energy upwards by a constant flow of slow breath and visualization. It’s wise to be very gentle and patient during any beginner’s tantra session and if your partner is exhausted or sensing panic talk through the pain or the exhaustion. We have bodily “memories” that we have stored over a number of years so as we evolve and experience blissful states or pleasure we are also aware of any “blockages” we might have ignored just to “survive”.

The act of breathing or rebirth breath allows you to introduce oxygen back to all your cells and you begin to use your diaphragm muscles properly and with intention so the breath might not seem easy or natural to you at first but once you practice by yourself every day you begin to experience gentle activation of your kundalina shakti in your sleep. The vibrations are very pleasant and you might here a soft buzzing sound and warmth traveling from your tail bone and all the way up slowly towards your neck. You will actually feel this warmth and electricity in each of your vertebrae if you are practicing the breath and kegel exercises in increments. Be aware of your body and how you feel as if you are astral projecting but you still feel “safe”.

If after your first tantra session you are confused never be afraid to research more information by reading books or seeking the help of a trained tantra yoga educator or professional. If you felt embarrassed or ashamed let your teacher or therapist or lover know what you are going through so you can process the experience and understand yourself more.

Tantra involves opening up your entire body to the experience of bliss. We are not necessarily going after an end result of orgasm rather we are teaching you how to be more grateful and more open so you can feel pleasure more profoundly and use your sexual energies to heal and open up all the chakra systems in your body.

I love using music, singing, crystals, laughter, shamanism and breath during my sessions but there are many unique paths to bliss just as long as you are patient with yourself and open about your goals. Expectation can get in the way of your own bliss. Have a goal set into place but be truly willing to let of of your angst if you do not see that goal come to its fruition immediately. Sometimes we might have lofty goals but our bodies might not be physically evolved or capable enough to receive intense energy if we have not explored certain aspects of our sacred sexuality.

Be patient with yourself. Be patient, open and loving with your partner and teacher and you will find that the opening up of kundalini shakti will be an exploration of your emotional and physical development so you can attain the level of freedom and bliss you deserve.

I love using “toys” crytals during my Chakra balancing sessions!

Chakra balancing is very similar to a good healthy work out for your body. Chakra balancing can be achieved with your own innate ability to feel and perceive your blocks or aches and pains in your body. If you understand that a chakra is a place to receive and send energy then each major chakra body we have correlates to a major organ or function in our physical body.

Simply put if you were a constant sufferer of headaches, migraines or stubborn sinus infections you would sense not only discomfort but a block in your 6th and 7th chakras which combined together involve your connection to your own inner ability to perceive what we consider Source and or your ability to intuit and use your gut intuition before making important decisions.

We can focus on colors that correlate to each of our major chakra bodies and we can use powerful visualizations, repeat affirmations, wear certain fragrances, wear special colors and use crystals to help balance our chakras.

When you feel out of sorts your chakra bodies become muddled so if you cleanse your chakras through the use of crystals, sage or salt baths you can slowly achieve and restore a sense of power, balance and positive well being. Reiki is an instant body balancing way to shift your energies and help your chakra bodies to communicate and realign themselves with each other. I love to use hot stones, crystals and organic aromatherapy essences to refresh the entire chakra bodies.

We are not seeking a “quick” fix in fact your thoughts play a huge factor on your ability to stay balanced and vibrating. Even if you undergo an extensive chakra balancing session but you repeat negative behaviors or continue to create negative thought forms you can get in the way of restoring your own healing.

Crystals especially pure amethyst, clear quartz, rose quartz and selenite create a powerful field of positive energies in your Chakra bodies. The simple act of laying still with a stone or crystal over your heart or stomach can restore a sense of calm and help you get rid of the “jitters”. Practice a bit yourself. Find a special selection of stones and crystals that you are naturally attracted to. You might find a certain color you gravitate towards or a special “feel”. Play with the stones and see how they make you feel. Do they give you more energy or less energy? Certain stones might be extra powerful for your body’s needs so look up the crystals that correlate with each of your chakra bodies or just pick the ones that feel GOOD to you.selenite pyramid

I would love the opportunity to create a special healing ceremony just for you. You may schedule a reiki healing without committing to tantra yoga massage or you can incorporate crystal healing with any of my tantra ceremonies.

My sessions will revitalize you, reawaken your consciousness, reintroduce you to your body and create passion in your body! Lack of passion and sensuality can hinder you from creation. In order to create we have to realize that our bodies are delicate and a lack of rest and play time leads to disease and numbness to life.

If you find yourself working 24/7 and following the same rituals on a daily basis you leave no room for personal growth and play. When was the last time you tried a brand new activity? Do you find yourself enjoying the same sensations, traveling the same circuits, enjoying only your favorite foods with no chance for variety?

Let’s work on shifting your energies this week! Join me by yourself ready to receive and heal. Let’s start out by joining hands and simply opening up your heart chakra using some sacred sounds and words. When we acknowledge our bodies in sound and sacred touch we open ourselves to change which leads to passion and fiery creations.

During our bathing ceremonies I will place a lot of attention on your heart chakra. I will apply gentle pressure on your breast bone and massage and pump your heart with oils and salt to cleanse and help renew your energies. The stomach is a place that is often affiliated with our creative potential and holds so much tension and stress. The term butterflies in one’s belly comes to mind when we think of our tummy folding into knots. The bathing ceremony is likened to returning to our time in the womb. My goal will be to create a sanctuary for you — a place where you can go deeper into repair and back into your cocoon. It is very similar to a rebirthing ceremony and I will hold your chakras in hold you in stillness in the water with me as I cleanse and bathe your chakras stimulating you with sound, salt and aromatherapy oils.

The second stage of healing will be the tantra chakra massage where again special deep tissue and trigger points will be released as your energy is allowed to flow. Sensual energy helps heal you. The sensual energies that are trapped in your second chakra will be explored, honored, released and healed and used as powerful medicine to open up all your other chakra bodies. You will feel intense vibrations or tingling as we have our tantra ceremony.

I love to use crystals, special chakra oils, sound, flute music and bathing rituals to enhance our sacred tantra ceremony. I hope to see you here here in New York ready for play, laughter, rebirth and genuine passion.

New York city has always been one of my favorite places to wander. Here you will find a variety of beautiful art and architecture, vivid beauty, tempting foods to eat, beautiful jewelry, street festivals, burlesque competitions and passionate artists. I always visit New York city during my birthday week and the moment I land I always feel at “home” here. But sometimes the stimulus here is overwhelming to our senses and that is where tantra yoga can play a significant role in rebuilding the fire and the passion within you. Take some time out for yourself this week. Work can wait. Your body can not wait. Join me here in New York city for a half day or a full day.

Learning when to cancel a session GRACEFULLY ❤

Blue Dog MishkaWell I really hate to cancel sessions especially if someone is new and they have not had a tantra healing in a very long time. I hate to say no and sometimes I realize all too late I am not a Super Power and my body has its limitations.
I accidentally missed a session because out of no where my monthly cycle hit me while in my sleep. I am one of those lucky few who have no signs or symptoms other than a voracious sweet tooth so since I never cramp or feel any discomfort I really can not plan on my cycle.
I went to bed pretty early with my phone right next to my pillow and slept through it ringing from 3 a.m. all the way up until noon. It was a fitful sleep and probably just what my body needed but I wish I had stayed awake long enough to cancel my upcoming session knowing my cycle had hit. I was abnormally tired and sleepy this weekend and I accidentally missed the chance to work because a new person wanted to see me but I never heard my phone ring!

I guess this taught me that I need to listen to my body’s cues better and the first indication of my moon cycle I need to postpone work because sometimes one’s body has plans of its own. I read somewhere that if you don’t plan enough private healing time your body will take a time out on its own and prevent you from moving forward. This was an example of one of those times where I had no control and was so sleepy I could not hear the phone on extra loud even though it was right near my ear.

I see some play time is needed and as a healer it is really hard to say no and not want to work especially when my work brings me so much personal joy and satisfaction. I guess I learned I have limits!

Tantra Mantra Puja Celebration and Liberation of your Soul ✿

Tantra Mantra Puja Celebration and Liberation of your Soul ✿

We are spiritual beings living in a physical world and trapped in a physical body. We want to soar and not have the limitations of our physical “cage”! We want to go without thirst, without cravings, without hunger, without lust and without pain or self doubt. Our natural state is “bliss”. We are born unto bliss and bliss is our birth rite. Tantra is the study of bliss and is the key to our inner contentment and our ability to see the unseen. When we feel trapped we feel powerless but when we learn how to travel outside of our bodies into the realm of the astral in the form of mindful meditation we grow “wings”.
Tantra involves a connection to Source and we expand and travel outside of our bodies therefore liberating our spirit body from our denser physical body. The word tantra is compose of two words in Sanskrit. Tanoti means quite literally to stretch out or expand and the second word Trayate means to free up or liberate. We use Mantras, yantras, meditation, breathing, pujas and pranayama during a tantra healing. If you have the time to schedule a 2 to 3 hour ceremony more than likely you will have a true taste of the yantras the symbolism behind each Chakra that we work on opening up together.
Tantra is the practice of keeping your energy high and maintaining your sexual energy for creative purposes and rejuvenation. Tantra teaches you the practice of mindfulness and your study of tantra as a form of meditation will also enhance your ability to appreciate all your mundane activities until they become infused with the extraordinary. You will take small bites of your food and take in each morsel. You will find new ways to create sacred space in your own home environment because you will become extra sensitive and you will require more art and more colors as you free up your inner clutter and give yourself the permission to explore the newness of everything around you.

Tantra seeks to unite all of us and create a sense of oneness rather than isolation. The act of partnering up with your lover or your tantra teacher creates an act of give and take and ebb and flow. As you connect with your partner you might even find your breathing patterns are in synchronicity and connecting becomes like second nature to you. Your bodies relax together and it’s as if you can feel the same pain or the same thirst. During a tantra healing you must remember to breathe consciously into your own heart chakra so you feel energized because you will be sharing your own heart energy with your partner and you will in essence be feeding each other pranic food.
How can you not evolve and expand under such lovely circumstances? We all go through phases in life. Sometimes we find ourselves busy in activity so we can hardly make space to learn anything new. At other times we might go through periods of worry or a lack of abundance. During these times we have more time to ponder different aspects of our personality and to decide what it is that really drives our passions. During these quieter times we have to reinvent ourselves and we can take this time to acquire new skills or change our location and move to a different city. Tantra will change you. Tantra will assist you in your growth no matter how painful or scary it is to change you can use tantra yoga to help you balance your relationship with yourself and give you the strength to set boundaries with others so you can express your needs and be “seen”.
