I don’t know if you’re anything like me… but have you ever wondered what the female orgasm is for? I always used to… until my understanding about our place in the cosmic order was widened and deepened through the practice of shamanism.
But it used to seem incredible to me that such a beautiful experience with its deep, profound and tingling waves, building to a thundering climax of ecstatic bliss undulating through the body, and then hovering like a warm honey bee of buzzing beatitude for long afterwards, didn’t appear to have any impact on the health of the body – other than the generation of a few ‘pleasure hormones’.
If you so much as clear your throat, or sneeze, it has an effect on your wellbeing in that, at least, you get to shift some mucus. Not so this pounding and throbbing Jefferson Starship through the gates of The Garden of Earthly Delights. It has no raison d’être at all! Apparently. Just ecstasy for the sake of ecstasy.
As a holistic health journalist, I’d been surprised to find that the medical textbooks had no use at all for the lovely female orgasm, unlike the male orgasm that accompanies ejaculation which, at least, can claim to be a vital factor in conception.
For instance, a few years ago I learned that some scientists at Finland’s Abo Akademi University had undertaken a study to find out whether the female orgasm had any evolutionary purpose. When they published their work in 2011, they concluded that the female orgasm has no function or purpose whatsoever, evolutionary or otherwise.
You may have read Elizabeth Lloyd’s book The Case of the Female Orgasm: Bias in the Science of Evolution, in which she hypothesised that there may be no evolutionary imperative for the female orgasm; that it was merely because women share biology with men, making the female orgasm an accidental by-product of Nature.
As you would expect of the more practical male, his orgasmic ejaculation, in evolutionary terms, seems to be a straightforward and simple no-nonsense affair. This has, so far, been explained by the theory that the male orgasm furthers man’s evolution because the pleasure it gives makes men want to have sex more often. You could say the same for the female of the species if they all experienced orgasm, but the trouble with that theory is, they don’t.
Female orgasms are not so simple to fathom, even in the animal world. For instance, all male animals orgasm, but not so female animals. Gibbon ladies, for example, do not enjoy such When Harry Met Sally-like raptures.
In humans, it turns out that men are far more likely to experience orgasm than women, of whom one in 10 don’t ever experience its delicious delights.
Added to that, the most common experience of orgasm with women is clitoral orgasm, which can be experienced in its full Hallelujah glory without contributing at all to the over-population of the planet.
However, unlike the geneticists who once decided to call DNA for which they could find no purpose ‘junk DNA’, let’s not rush to label the female orgasm ‘junk ecstasy’. Just because scientists cannot find what the female orgasm is for, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a purpose. They just need another way to view it.
You may have noticed that when women talk about their orgasms, they seem to be describing a much more holistic and rounded experience, verging on spiritual transfiguration, than that described by their male partners. And now we’re coming to what my new book, Reclaiming Sovereignty, is all about.
I’m sorry to be the bringer of bad news: but modern Western scientists will never discover the purpose of the female orgasm so long as they continue to insist on their very limited set of tools (no pun intended) and parameters within which to investigate it. Their instruments of discovery only allow for outward, objective, exploration when they need to turn them inwards, subjectively, which would then, automatically, widen and deepen their parameters to go beyond just this one dimension in which we find ourselves living, on Earth.
As Einstein discovered shortly before he died, all matter is governed by the energetic field – in other words, the health of the physical body is impacted by the auric fields around the physical body which are invisible to the naked eyes of all but seers, shamans and mystics.
In ancient times, going back around four or five thousand years into the Neolithic age, sacred shamanic sex rites would be performed in the temples by priestesses or ‘sacred prostitutes’, known as hierodules.
The hierodules were trained in the Mystery schools to view the female orgasm as much a function of the auric or energetic field as the physical body.
In other words, the purpose of the orgasm was not considered to be just for the physical body, but for the whole mind-body-spirit continuum. And while this may not impact on evolution as understood by Darwinists, it has a vital application to the overall higher evolution of our true selves, the Spiritual Being currently residing in the human body.
The kings and pharaohs of Babylon and Egypt would spend the night of their coronation with the High Priestess or top hierodule of the temple, so important was sacred sexuality regarded in those days to the Sovereignty of the Land. The ruler was expected, in this way, to undergo spiritual transfiguration through shamanic sex practices, in order to be fit to rule.
When the people of Britain voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, the word on everyone’s lips was Sovereignty.
But what is Sovereignty?
There were some who tried to convince the British people that Sovereignty didn’t really exist, or that if it did, it was over-rated. A few self-styled experts claimed that Sovereignty could be extended or pooled; others insisted that Sovereignty was merely “the ability to get things done.”
All of those pundits were wrong – although they were hardly to blame for their errors. Sovereignty actually starts off life as a spiritual transmission from the spirits of the land, but this is no longer taught to the general populace.
However, a few mystic types did know about Sovereignty, and so they weren’t at all surprised when its spirit rose up from the land on the Summer Solstice of 2016, and infused the hearts and minds of the ordinary people of Britain.
In this book, Reclaiming Sovereignty, you will learn all about the spiritual source of Sovereignty – and how to find it and reclaim it in your own life and on your own land.
