A 'Long-Cut' to a Male's Healing Love Techniques.
By Raven Cohan
In the Healing/Universal Tao where I have been teaching since 1983 what eventually has become nine courses of varied certified topics of study, a frequent question comes to me over the years. Here is how I recently answered it.
“Tell me something Raven, do you think you could give me some lessons on moving energy to higher centers from my perineum? I've read Mantak Chia's books and I've done some exercises to move my sexual energy upwards but sometimes it's hard to move it up because the pressure and sensation of excitement down in the lower area is so strong, that I decided to stop.”
First I must clarify, that there exists a course that Mantak Chia has called, "Healing Love", and he also has called it, "Multiple Orgasm" techniques for males and females. There is no short cut. It is very important to our spiritual development to begin to utilize what we term "arousal energy" for self healing and eventually the healing of others. It is only one kind of healing energy but it is a very powerful and fundamental source of healing in humans. The challenge that most men have in training their sexual energy to keep aroused but not to ejaculate is a common question. Men cannot get serious without learning these techniques. I have concluded after many years of being a teacher, that it is much better to train for anywhere from one to five years, (average 2.5 for most men, unless they are practicing many times daily), without attempting the arousal techniques for men. For women, this can be true as well. Men and women first need to build chi in their lower tan tien. What I am teaching in my daily classes is leading all my students to getting the bliss first. You then eventually translate that bliss into a form of energy that can be much more easily controlled when you are with a partner or self-pleasuring. It is too challenging for most men to disassociate orgasm from ejaculation, and many, unconsciously if not outright consciously, don't really want to give up the ejaculation. Bliss, however, is pretty miraculous and can feel stronger and stronger with practice, and it will become so familiar that slowly and surely, you will be able to spread it to every part of your body. Leaving the actual arousal of sex organs out of your meditations and visualizations at first, will help you to not feel like a failure. This is a common occurrence that happens to some men when practicing healing love. They unwittingly ejaculate. This will come to a surprise to many who are not schooled in the Taoist Arts. Males are taught that ejaculation is the source of LOSING their most empowering healing energy through ejaculation of the sperm. Most men in the world have ingrained in their psyches that the 'be all/end all' of sexual relations is ejaculation. (Women are not losing energy as much when they have ejaculation of their sexual fluids. [That is another subject that so many people aren't aware exists.] The only fluid that women are asked to train themselves to lessen or eliminate completely is their menstrual fluid. Women and men both have been endowed with varied
typical amounts of menstrual/seminal fluid ratios. This article is focused on men.) The feeling of failure is a
contender in the ‘Healing Love Race,’ is what makes progress tougher to become realized. There is no RACE.
