ALL.CHAKRA TANTRA by Sasha Lessin, Ph. D. & Janet Kira Lessin

»Posted by on Jun 4, 2007 in Tantra | 0 comments

Tantra means weaving. Tantra means weaving all the levels of your awareness, called chakras, within you and between you and those you love. Think of chakras with your body parts––––the bottom of your torso, genitals, belly, heart, throat, brain and neocortex, parts of you aware of your security, sexuality, power, love, talk, clarity and spiritual connection. In tantra, you activate your chakras and merge energy from them with your lovers”. You and your lover together join the ocean of consciousness.  . Your first chakra relates to your perineum, your needs to belong, feel safe, secure and healthy, grounded in your material and emotional existence. The tantric weaving of your base chakra and your lover’s means you help your love feel secure emotionally and financially. You encourage wellness as you eat, exercise and stretch together. Massage and touch each other all over.  . The second chakra relates to your sexuality and reproductive organs, your needs to feel sexual and sensual. In healing sessions involving this chakra, you release emotions and reprogram put-down attitudes. Women respond to vaginal strokes and ejaculate copious, alkaline fluid, amrita. Men learn how to pull up energy instead of ejaculating, to last longer in lovemaking and to orgasm in new ways.  . For your third chakra, related to your belly, All-Chakra Tantra teaches you to take what’s yours, assert yourself appropriately. Empower each other. You explore power chakra dynamics with your lover- -how you bond (sometimes sweetly, sometimes sourly) into parental- child roles. Ram meditations help you return to sweet and centered interaction.  . The meditations of the forth chakra, associate with your heart, guide you to love, cherish, support, heal and encourage yourself and your lover. You communicate feelings, cultivate sweetness, romance each other. You develop dyadic consciousness, where you identify at the same time with your beloved’s consciousness and your own as parts of a greater awareness, a two-person awareness greater than the sum of your separate identities.  . Fifth chakra throat: expression. Hear each of your inner voices (subselves) tell you what they want and need. They say how they aid you, your beloved and humanity. Choose what, when and how to express (or not express) your inner voices to other people. Honor your beloved’s many voices too. Speak authentically, kindly and effectively to each other. In one throat-chakra exercise, you sanctify sex––––speak romantically of sacred sexual organs and acts.  . Chakra 6, Brain: vision, intuition, intellect: Receive, share and expand visions for yourselves, each other, others you love, your community and world. As beloveds, you intuit each others thoughts and feelings, as well as those of your children, parents, friends and others. Access the messages of dream, past life, fantasy, archetype and hero-tale.  . For the final charka, your crown, the tantric meditations we like invoke awareness of your unity with everyone and everything. Tantra helps you rise to broader perspectives of your crown chakra, yet stay aware of the wisdom of chakras 1-6. Encompass more than Thinker, Pleaser or other subselves. Expand your awareness to more than your body. Expand your perspective to even more than awareness of you and your darling, more than the awareness you share with each other and with humans, with life itself, or even with the Earth. Feel your oneness with everyone and everything everywhere at all-times. Experience unity, the seamless web of consciousness linking the manifest universe. Merge with the latent–unforrned but constantly arising-––––reality of the metacosmic void. Identify with divine play that can manifest all forms.  .

All-Chakra Tantra Ritual For Two by Sasha Lessin, Ph. D. Part I – LAM

»Posted by on Jun 4, 2007 in Tantra | 0 comments

Tantra activates all your chakras. The chakras, summarized in the chart below, are energy centers–each with a syllable to chant–associated with your perineum, genitals, belly, heart, throat, forehead and crown. You pour energy from your chakras into a coherent river of light that spouts up your spine and meets your beloved’s light. You connect in the stream of consciousness that sweeps you both to the ocean of life. Chakra Task Chant Perineum Enhance your health, create safety for yourself and your beloved.  Cherish your Inner Child.  Contribute to everyone’s well-being and regenerate the planet Lam Genitals Delight yourselves and each other sexually.  Create kids consciously.  Elevate sensuality to alleviate violence. Vam Belly Empower your center, each of your inner voices, your lovers and humanity. Ram Heart Love yourself, your lover and all beings. Yam Throat Tell your truth kindly and listen with love to your selves, your sweetheart and the world. Ham Brain Think, intuit and envision for yourself, your beloved and your community. Ooo Crown Flow energy between your crown and your beloved’s.  Transcend your separate, individual self-senses and merge with each other, humanity, Earth and cosmos. Mmm      Get a feel for these chakras so you can directly recognize, cherish, coordinate and integrate the chakras and consciously apply what they energize-–security, sex, power, love, talk, understanding and unity–-to enlighten yourself, your lover and the world. Activate your chakras and facilitate the process of intrapersonal and interpersonal synergy with the ritual to follow.  You chant the Chakra Chant (Bija Mantra), an ancient Sanskrit meditation, loud and strong. You tone seven one-syllable words–lam, vam, ram, yam, ham, ooo and mmm; each activates a different chakra. Lam pumps your perineum; vam invigorates your genitals. Ram empowers your belly, yam heals your heart, ham frees your voice. Your “third eye”–forehead to occiput–vibrates with ooo, and you think and intuit at the same time. When you chant mmm, your crown opens and you unite with all you behold. Do the ritual with a partner, if you can. If you lack a partner, do the rite before a mirror. The entire ritual takes two hours.Security Chakra (Lam): Perk Your Perineum Sit or stand erect. Touch your perineum. Chant lam three times. After each lam you chant, squeeze your anal sphincter and see a red rose open there. In the center of the last rose you open, picture yourself healthy, serene and safe. Face your partner or reflection. Touch your own palms together, thumbs on chest. Gaze into your partner’s or image’s eyes, bow and say, “Namaste. I honor the divine in you.” Chant lam three more times. If you’re a woman in a man-woman pair, enact the Great Mother. If you’re in a same sex pair, one of you stand to enact the Mother. Stand before the seated partner, your devotee. Your legs are trees; your feet, roots; arms and fingers, branches and twigs. Channel Ninharsag, co-creator and lover of humanity. As this Goddess, love and accept your devotee. Kneel next to your devotee; sandwich her or his heart in your hands. Send energy out your right hand and catch this energy and the ashes of negativity burned from her or him in your left; send what you catch into the earth to recycle. Devotees, feel the goddess pulse nurturing energy through you, cleansing you of rancor toward particular women and women in general. Instead, appreciate the women in your life and all women. Love, accept and fully forgive your mother. Feel each hurt, anger, disappointment, separation, resentment and negative attitude toward women drain from you; muscles that held those negativities relax. Now, Goddess, hold your devotee’s head against your belly. Devotee, become your Inner Child. Let the goddess love and nurture you. She channels the loving intentions of your birth mother, of your female lovers, of all women, of Ninhursag, of the Earth. In her arms you feel safe, secure, healthy.  You can cry, sigh, feel high. Goddess, whisper three times to your devotee, ” You belong.” “I’m always here for you.” “You’re safe.”  “You’re healthy.” Devotee, if there’s any other reprogramming reminders–sentences that enhance your sense of  belonging and physical well-being–you’d like her to say, tell her; she’ll say them. Stand, Goddess; help the devotee stand before you. Devotee, open your eyes into your partner’s. Reverse goddess-devotee roles. Portray Your Perineum. Identify with your security chakra; pretend you’re it. Say what you’re like as the voice of safety, security and health. Tell what you want, why you want that and what you’d do if you ruled your person all the time. Relate how you’d run her or his lovelife, if you were in charge. If you...
