Spirituality, Reiki, Sex Drive, and Masturbation (in one?)

 Logan Mitchell (@lsmitchell)6 years, 10 months ago

Hello! Last week I partook in a course on Reiki, the Japanese-based energy healing system. In order to open the energetic channels, the Reiki Master gives the student what is called an “attunement” which is an amazing energetic opening and connecting experience. However, I’ve noticed that since that class (which was five days ago), I have not had any desire to masturbate or partake in any sexual act whatsoever. This is quite a shock for me, as my sex drive is usually much more heightened.

I have always seen sexuality and spirituality as connected, but is this beneficial that I don’t want to masturbate? Is it really self-mastery when my sex drive isn’t even there to tempt me? Buddhist monks often are celibate in order to release their earthly samara and attain enlightenment, do you think that there is a connection to increased spiritual dedication and a decrease in sexual desire?

An opinion on any of the above questions would be greatly appreciated.

Much gratitude.

You’re fine. Obviously whoever did the alignment on you knows a lot; you should learn from him/her. Sounds cool! I’m jealous!

Desires come out of being away from the one’s higher self. With spiritual practices like Reiki, Yoga and even tantric sex etc. we come closer to that self and in the process the desires start to fade. The longer & higher the experience, more the satisfaction and lesser the desires there will be.

You know the same thing happened to me, one night I was meditating and I had the kundalini experience were literally a snake of energy, crawls up your body wiggleing back and forth, like I thought I had an alien inside of me, and it wiggled into my brain, and this is a big snake of energy and it pops out your 3rd eye. And I swear that is where you see the snake out the 3rd eye in mayan, egyptian, hindu, and all over the world. But afterwards I literally just stopped getting horny, and I’m a 26 year old male, I only get horny now during dreams. And because of this my girlfriend thinks that I started cheating on her, or that I’m doing something behind her back. But I have no desire to fornicate anymore, maybe part of ascension.

Weird, my sexual appetite kinda goes through cycles where I want it all the time and then a couple weeks or a month goes by where I don’t even think about it. I never made this connection but I’m going to do some more observation to see if it’s a possibility. If so, I don’t know how much I like the sound of that.

interesting post, I too experienced exactly the same thing, the more reiki I have the more my sex drive decreases (bad English but its late here)

my reiki therapist has no answer for me but the fact others experience the same thing begs the question is this the same for all/most or are we the few who have issues in this area and the healing energy is dealing with it?

i have completed my kundalini reiki third degree and am now master/teacher. which flavour of reiki are each of you attuned to?

Kriya Yoga will help you attain the spiritual enlightenment.

Thank you

Hi to all of you, its indeed very interesting subject you tapped on, when you get attuned to reiki, most of the time, your higher self and your physical body would put you on default mode or hibernating mode, and thats due to letting energy to sit where it suppose to sit, and align your whole physical body to the new energy channeled into your being. Sexual  energy is powerful energy that very powerful  feeling attached to it, and your higher self and physical body prefer no disturbance until the upgrading is accomplished, once the channel is reformed you are most likely gonna feel a great shift in your sexual desires, that would really make you to explore your sextual energy from different perspective, these perspectives can be very based on people’s experience in their life…
