Holy Ground

What is the difference between “sex” and “sacred sex”? Essentially, the difference is your attitude and intention. It is primarily through ceremony and ritual that we communicate with our souls. Creating a sacred space for loving is one of the best ways of signaling to your deepest / highest consciousness that your intention is to elevate lovemaking to an art and a sacrament. In this way the lovers may graduate from ordinary friction sex (in which bodies rub together for pleasure) to energy sex (in which there is a deep emotional and energetic connection), and ultimately if love is present to the complete union of soul sex.

Honoring the God and Goddess

We are all ordinary human beings, and yet we are at once god and goddess, simultaneously flawed and wonderful. In sacred loving each of you brings to it your absolute best, and each of you looks for and expects to find the best in your partner. You treat each other as the god and goddess you actually are. You offer your lovemaking to God as a way to honor Him, to celebrate His love and blessings and to the Goddess for the great abundance that surrounds you.

However attractive your lovemaking space is when you start, take 10-15 minutes to transform it by adding fresh flowers or plants, changing the lighting with lots of candles, selecting the perfect music, draping beautiful pieces of cloth over hard edges, bringing in special objects that have emotional or spiritual significance for both of you such as photographs or gifts you have given each other previously.
