I thought in a lot of spiritual literature, it was written that frequent sexual activity decreases energy and causes rapid aging. to stay healthy and vital, they almost seem to recommend celibacy??? any truth to that?

I'd like to hear the source of where you heard that it causes rapid aging?

Something you may want to study Napoleon Hill talks about a concept that he called "Sexual Transmutation" where he ascerted that frequent sexual activity was required to attain higher levels of energy vibration and thus success.

As you can guess, I'm siding with Hill and perhaps we have various religious teachings to thank for the doublespeak that exists on sexual energies.

Your thoughts?

Chris,
I am familiar with Napoleon Hill's description of "Transmuting Sexual energy". Literally what he was referring to was transference of sexual energy to a higher level to enhance one's charisma and vitality. I don't think he was referring to sexual expression. In some of the success literature, it is felt that expression of sexual energy should be economized as retaining and transmuting it allows you to tap into higher intuitive guidance and supercharges your brain.

Some other refernces are in Peter Kelder's book Ancient tibetan secrets of ... the fountain of youth (*** excellent short read) and "Soul Psychology - Keys to ascension " by Dr. Joshua David Stone ch. 13 "an esoteric understanding of sexuality". Basic concept is that ego seeks sexual expression and dissipates enormous amt of energy, whereas spirit does not look down on sexual expression but seeks to raise someof this energy to "ojas" which literally means brain illumination.

I am not offering pros and cons but these are just different uses of the same energy. One is lower field and one is higher. Although, if I am understanding Sonia Choquette's writings correctly she also believes that within reason, this does help balance out your second chakra.

Hi there.

From what I have read in a book recently, it would deplete/decrease energy if you *sleep around*, swap partners etc. It is supossed to be worse for women.

I have some pictures, which show two people (who love each other) making love and you can see their energies *melt* together. They become *one* and their energy level goes rock high.

It also says in the book to make love as much as possible. I think I believe the book I have read.

I hope this is not a *men* only discussion wink

Hmm, that is odd.

Just make sure you are logged in before you post.

Our system is designed to keep you logged in, but if you ever become logged-out, just look up in the top horizontal menu to make sure it shows that you are logged in. If not, login and then post.

idea Also, this is not a "men only" discussion. Curious What makes you think that a woman would have a higher karmic or "energy" penalty for being unfaithful than a man?

Well, I think that I folllow Trinity's line of thinking. If you add to high level energies, you can get into higher states as written about in the Tantric Literature. I think the key is that you begin with a baseline elevated state, this implies positive emotions such as Love etc. as opposed to lower states like Lust etc. which is probably what leads to more liberal behaviour. I am not certain if I see the difference between man and woman incurring different karmic loads?

Deepak Chopra's latest book (I believe it's "Heal Your Body - Live Longer") speaks directly to this issue. Sexual activity and the relationship we have with our inner Ojas. Interesting reading. )

The actual title of the book is "Grow Younger - Live Longer." A quote from it states "According to Ayurveda, we are born with a small reserve of ojas that can be augmented or depleted as a result of nourishing or toxic experiences. Healthy food, loving emotions, nurturing sensory impressions, rejuvenating herbs, and creative use of sexual energy all contribute to more abundant ojas. ... Therefore, protecting and increasing your supply of ojas is key to reversing the aging process." )

i haven't read that book, did he seem to lean toward celibacy for retention of Ojas or more appropriate use of it?

To answer your question, I would have to say that the quote I put down describes his suggestions for the most effective way to reserve the limited supply of ojas. )

I don't believe that sexual energy is ever in "limited or scarce" supply, unless you believe it is.

As you can guess, I won't be reading Deepak's book if that is what he is suggesting.

The more sexual energy you radiate, the more you have to radiate.

There is no one who will ever convince me that increasing sexual energy will leads to premature aging as it's just nonsense.

I've also read Sonia's book "True Balance." It does suggest that sexual activity clears the second chakra. I think it's how you go about it though. If its always done through ego or becomes addictive, your going to cause blocks instead. Its all about balance and your intention.

Hi Fair Raven! Good to hear from you again.

From a purely guy perspective, new research was out that suggested that frequent sex decreases the chances of prostate cancer.

Who am I to argue with that...and with as many kids as Dyer had, I'm guessing he had no problems in this area either ; - ).
