Meditation to Open Up to Your Sexuality
Begin by repeating the following affirmations:
I am worthy of love and sexual pleasure.
I feel good about my sexuality.
I have the right to express my desires to my partner
Now imagine you are sitting in a large orange pyramid. As you breathe in and out, see the color orange moving in and around your body. Allow the color to move through you like a gentle stream of water. Imagine the stream is cleansing your mind, body and spirit. Dive into the water and notice how healing it is. This healing vibration is fluid and strong.
Allow this vital life force energy of this orange pyramid to settle in to your body pouring like water down through your sexual organs and your bladder. The light is very healing and vibrant just like the flow of water – the water is filling your entire body. Repeat these affirmations in your mind and let them become your new reality: I have a right to pleasure, abundance, and good health … I deserve to experience joy.
Now allow yourself to reflect for a moment on what it would be like for you if you could let yourself receive more pleasure and more joy and more abundance in your life … If you had more downtime to relax and have fun … if you took better care of your physical body by giving it the right amount of nutrition and exercise. Focus now on the physical pleasures that you know that you deserve to receive – the abundance of good things … good health, a healthy and vibrant intimate loving relationship.

Begin to feel your emotions being transformed. Feel the love and passion. See yourself involved in healthy relationships that love and support you.
