Exercise to Awaken Deeper Understanding of Your Sexual Challenges

This exercise will help you awaken to any hidden sexual challenges that might get in the way of becoming a skillful Me-B Guide. In addition, as you practice this exercise, you will discover how to better work with a client that might push sexual energy your way.

Find a partner that you trust and practice the following exercise.

Step 1: Stand facing each other about 3 feet apart.

Step 2: One of you will be an A and the Other a B.

Step 3: The A person will run sexual energy out their second charka at person B. Person A lets no connection to happen between their 2nd chakra and 4th, Heart Chakra.

Step 4: Person B senses how familiar this feels to them and how common it happened or happened. Person B assesses what Core Distortion was/is created when this happens to them.

Step 5: Person A senses how it feels for them to run just sexual energy at someone. How often do they do this in their life and what is their emotional reaction to doing this? What Core Distortion exists or was brought to the surface for them?

Step 6: Now person A resonates a healthy sexual energy response and lets the sexual energy in his or her 2nd Chakra blended with the heart energy in their 4th. In essence, Person A allows the sexual energy to expand and include energy from all the chakras so no longer just sexual energy flows.

Step 7: Both Persons A and B assess how their mind, energy and body system responds to this latest energy shift. Both A and B engages their Explorer’s Mind and explores what healing can take place for them and how to foster more balanced sexual energy in their lives.

Step 7: Change Places and repeat so person A plays the role of B and person B plays the role of A.
Note: Make sure your Enlightened Observer is strong so you don’t rewound and yet you do feel the challenging feelings that need to be transformed.

Meditation
Connecting Sexual Energy in your 2nd Chakra With Heart Energy in 4th Chakra

Step 1: Get into your body. Dance, jump up and down, send love to yourself. Use the methods that awaken sensations in the lower body and grounded energy.

Step 2: Put on some “feel good” music. Hips waist width apart with knees slightly bent, imagine there is a pen attached to your tailbone and draw big circles with it. Really let the hips move and flow as you do this. Surrender to feel sensations of energy in the body so deeply that you can actually describe those sensations and feel the emotions/consciousness associated with those emotions.

Step 3: Keep drawing the circles but let the circles gradually get smaller until they are the size of a quarter or dime. Once again, really let the hips move and flow as you do this. Surrender to feel sensations of energy in the body so deeply that you can actually describe those sensations and feel the emotions/consciousness associated with those emotions.

Step 4: Repeat in the opposite direction.

Step 5: Now surrender to allow the energy from the center of the earth to flow up your legs, through the muscle, bone and bone marrow. Let if flow from the earth to the bottom of your foot, upward through your lower leg. Let if fill the thigh, pelvis. As you connect breath with awareness in all those parts of the body, surrender to feel sensations of energy in the body so deeply that you can actually describe those sensations and feel the emotions/consciousness associated with those emotions.

Step 6: Now swing your arms and waist back and forth like a twister or windmill. Let your 3rd chakra charge and fill. As you connect breath with awareness in all those parts of the body, surrender to feel sensations of energy in the body so deeply that you can actually describe those sensations and feel the emotions/consciousness associated with those emotions. If the emotions become too intense, make sure your Enlightened Observer and Intention Line are strong.

Step 7: With your hands pointed toward the ground, bend and straighten your knees and let the energy from the earth rise up again through your lower body, pelvis, sacrum, and upward to fill chakras 1-3. As you connect breath with awareness in all those parts of the body, surrender to feel sensations of energy in the body so deeply that you can actually describe those sensations and feel the emotions/consciousness associated with those emotions. If the emotions become too intense, make sure your Enlightened Observer and Intention Line are strong.

Step 8: Allow the energy to fill the liver, kidneys, stomach, pancreases, spleen and intestines. As you connect breath with awareness in all those parts of the body, surrender to feel sensations of energy in the body so deeply that you can actually describe those sensations and feel the emotions/consciousness associated with those emotions. If the emotions become too intense, make sure your Enlightened Observer and Intention Line are strong.

Step 8: Twirl again but with your arms extended shoulder height. We are now surrendering to charge the 4th chakra, check and upper back. Now really let the energy from your 1st-4th chakras connect and expand. As you connect breath with awareness in all those parts of the body, surrender to feel sensations of energy in the body so deeply that you can actually describe those sensations and feel the emotions/consciousness associated with those emotions. If the emotions become too intense, make sure your Enlightened Observer and Intention Line are strong.

TREATMENT PLANNING CONSIDERATIONS BASED UPON DATA

(EXAMPLE BELOW)

Psychosocial Assessment

Presenting Problem and Present Situation: June is 60 years old, married and has two children (a 19 year old daughter and 22 year old son). Her presenting problem when she first came to counseling 6 years ago was feelings of depression, problems with her marriage and outbursts of anger that she felt she could not always control. She felt numb and disconnected sexually and was interested in experiencing more self-growth and self-awareness. However, in the past six years she has made great progress. Her marriage is stronger — although there still seems to be some issues with her husband – she rarely experiences depression and outbursts of anger. Now she is concerned with addressing her problem, her sugar addiction, and her self-esteem issues that she feels limit her professionally and inhibit her self-growth.

Mental Status:

June is well-dressed, medium height and slightly over weight. She is self-employed and is completing her masters degree. She has good memory, normal affect, her behavior is appropriate, and has clear perceptions. She can have deep insight into her problems, clear judgment and strong problem solving abilities. She demonstrates normal thought content. She says she is in good health except for her weight, and she is not on any medication.

History, Background and Family and Relationship Systems:

June was adopted when she was 10-weeks old into an upper-middle class family who lived in a mostly white suburban neighborhood in Colorado. She has a brother 5 years older than she who was also adopted. Her mother was a full-time homemaker and her father was a banker. They are now retired. Both were college graduates. Her father was authoritarian and expressed his anger easily. It was always clear to June that her father loved her – he just didn’t know how to express his feelings in a healthy manner.

Her father was an alcoholic and was often verbally abusive to June, her mother and brother. Her brother, Paul, too became addicted to drugs and alcohol when he was in high school. June’s brother almost dropped out of high school, had difficulty completing his higher education, despite his genius IQ. Paul, now 65 years old, recovered from his addictions in his late 30s but he never became successful in his career or personal life. Today, he is divorced, unemployed, smokes cigarettes, and is 150 pounds over weight.

June feels the reason he is this way is because of the abuse John received as a child from their father. Because Paul was older, and male, June feels most of her father’s abuse focused on her brother so she was sheltered from receiving even more of her father’s abuse. June still feels a little guilty about this – especially since her brother is still having so much difficulty in his life.

June is very sensitive and intuitive and felt very abused as a child and young adult. She attributes many of her life challenges – including but not limited to depression, anger outburst, sexual problems, low self-esteem, obesity — to an abusive and difficult childhood. June remembers when her father was drunk and sexually molested her by putting his hands in her pants – while her mother was present. June was 14 years of age at the time. Her mother never intervened to help her – ever.

June also has blurred memories of sexual abuse when she was much younger.

In addition, possibly because of her adoption and family circumstances, June never felt she belonged or fit in. Her parents were conservative Republicans and Christians. June always had a very different world-view and philosophy on life – which her parents adamantly opposed. They felt she was wrong in her thinking and never hesitated telling her so. June grew up thinking she was bad, wrong, abnormal and an outcast. Once she graduated college and began her own life, career, marriage – she began to finally understand that father and mother had some deep unresolved issues and that June was really not that bad, or strange or abnormal.

June married when she was 30 years old. She became a business profession in Colorado Springs, Colorado. During this time, her interest in self-growth and expanding her personal experiences grew. Also, her relationship with her husband began to deteriorate. She was still depressed, had outbursts of anger and became numb sexually.

As part of her self-growth process, she decided to change her career – she moved back to the states and began law. She now has a fairly good marriage and family life and a supportive community.

Diagnosis and Diagnostic:

June’s original diagnosis six years ago was PTSD. However, she has successfully used therapy to significantly decrease PTSD symptoms. Notwithstanding, she is interested in decreasing them even more because she feels they still cause difficulties in her marriage, her career and her ability to lose weight.

Her original diagnosis of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was given because the traumatic events were persistently re-experienced in one (or more) of the following ways: intense psychological distress at exposure to internal or external cues that symbolize or resemble an aspect of the traumatic event and physiological reactivity on exposure to internal or external cures that symbolize or resemble an aspect of the traumatic event. Persistent avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma: restricted range of affect or feelings of detachment or estrangement from others and persistent feelings of increased arousal such as irritability or outbursts of anger, difficulty falling or staying asleep and difficulty concentrating. The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social or other important areas of functioning. Chronic was chosen because the duration of symptoms was more than three months.

41 – 50 Serious symptoms (e.g., suicidal ideation, severe obsessional rituals, frequent shoplifting) or any serious impairment in social, occupational, or school functioning (e.g., no friends, unable to keep a job, cannot work).

31 – 40 Some impairment in reality testing or communication (e.g., speech is at times illogical, obscure, or irrelevant) or major impairment in several areas, such as work or school, family relations, judgment, thinking, or mood (e.g., depressed adult avoids friends, neglects family, and is unable to work; child frequently beats up younger children, is defiant at home, and is failing at school).

21 – 30 Behavior is considerably influenced by delusions or hallucinations or serious impairment, in communication or judgment (e.g., sometimes incoherent, acts grossly inappropriately, suicidal preoccupation) or inability to function in almost all areas (e.g., stays in bed all day, no job, home, or friends)

11 – 20 Some danger of hurting self or others (e.g., suicide attempts without clear expectation of death; frequently violent; manic excitement) or occasionally fails to maintain minimal personal hygiene (e.g., smears feces) or gross impairment in communication (e.g., largely incoherent or mute).

1 – 10 Persistent danger of severely hurting self or others (e.g., recurrent violence) or persistent inability to maintain minimal personal hygiene or serious suicidal act with clear expectation of death.

TREATMENT PLANNING CONSIDERATIONS BASED UPON DATA

In the past six years, June’s treatment plan was to work on prenatal and preverbal trauma related to June’s adoption. In addition she worked on strengthening her sense of self and ego strength so that deeper work could be done on the trauma related to the sexual and verbal abuse she received while growing up in her family. When June first began therapy, her PTSD symptoms were significant. However, cognitive therapy combined with body psychotherapy and mind-body-energy healing techniques helped re-pattern the emotional and physical trauma and fear. Her negative symptoms were greatly reduced and her sense of self grew. In addition, her ego strength was reinforced and she became more confident and stable. Her marriage also improved greatly. Given the success of the previous treatment plan, I recommend that it continue with the following refinement.

June feels that an inner saboteur comes out from within her that is addicted to self-limitation. Especially when it comes to losing weight and advancing as a business professional. June states that she is fearful of being seen in her fullness of self professionally, physically and sexually so she covers up her body and sexuality with excess weight and she undermines her professional successes.

Treatment Plan: Combine cognitive, energetic therapy, with Trauma work and body centered psychotherapy. Once the beliefs and trauma related to them have been identified, continue the cognitive and body-centered trauma therapy to re-pattern the old beliefs and behaviors; help her feel safe, and strengthen her sense of self, self-esteem and feelings of being bad or not good enough.

Specifically, this will be done by a combination of table work and TLC Therapy, non table. I will help her remove unhealthy ancestral cords, re-pattern past trauma and eventually support her to bring in healthy Archetypes to replace her internal saboteur.
