Our bodies are meant to enter into states of pleasure often. Our muscles hold memory and if stress invites itself repeatedly it may make us think it belongs there.

But it doesn’t.

Think about when you get mad. Your fists curl up into little balls of tension. Emotions demonstrate themselves in the body.

This is why having an awareness and dedication to bringing more pleasure to your body is a healing act. This is why we should practice our pleasure religiously and be proactive in sending signals of love, relaxation, and easiness to every inch of our being.

The flow of energy through our chakras (the “energy centers” of our bodies) is essential to our fundamental well-being and our ability to experience our lives fully.

When our chakras get blocked, the natural flow of energy is hindered, and we experience disconnection from our physical bodies. Crystal healing can release blockages from lack of attention and self-care of our own well being or from a physical or emotional trauma experienced in the past.

For centuries, crystals have been used as a way of releasing and harmonizing energy. Each crystal has its own unique qualities that are suited to specific kinds of blockages. When used properly, crystals can have a powerfully positive effect on our lives.

Crack open a seemingly ordinary geode, and you will discover a beautiful crystalline interior. This is you. Go beyond the aesthetics of a crystal, and you will unearth the potency of its energy. This is also you. It can be an intimidating task to uncover yourself, but that is only because deep within you lies great power. You hold massive potential: your body for ecstasy, your spirit for connection, and your heart for love.

And love goes hand in hand with our sexuality, despite what our traumatized, shameful, fractured ideas of sexuality have led us to believe.

Feeling sexy is an empowered, loving state of being. Sexy people radiate through self-possession, curiosity, and compassion.

It feels sexy to be connected to primal instincts (root chakra).

It feels sexy to have a drive to relate to others (sacral chakra).

It feels sexy to be empowered by the belief that you can manifest whatever you want (solar plexus chakra).

It feels sexy to have an open heart and to give and receive love freely (heart chakra).

It feels sexy to openly express creativity and ideas (throat chakra).

It feels sexy to listen to your intuition (third eye chakra).

It feels sexy to be connected to source energy (crown chakra).

Whether you’re new to chakras and crystals or experienced with chakra and crystal healing, Vanessa Cuccia—founder of revolutionary Original Crystal Sex Toy Company®, Chakrubs—has written a book that guides you on the essential information and techniques you need to get your energy flowing freely again, and open yourself to greater well-being, intimacy, and sexual pleasure.

A post shared by Chakrubs™ (@chakrubs) on

“The chakrub has been a very powerful tool for me in terms of healing. I do feel so beautiful after I let it love me… when I orgasm I do believe it develops a life of its own and it seems to light up. It makes me feel safe and clean and pure and so happy. I don’t consider it a sex toy at all. It’s not a toy for me…it’s a sacred love making tool. Making love to myself is truly becoming a beautiful experience and an act of the pure divine.” ~ Y.M.

Vanessa’s book, Crystal Healing & Sacred Pleasure, is rooted in the philosophy, “Know thyself and thou shalt know the universe and god.” Because self-knowledge, intention, and ritual are important aspects of crystal healing, Vanessa offers rituals and practices for a deeper understanding of our bodies’ capacity for pleasure.

This book will assist you on the path of accessing pleasure to awaken your purpose and empower your entire being. The use of crystals in this work serves two primary functions. One is to act as a support system and grounding element so that you know you are safe, secure, and protected as you explore your sexual, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The other is to act as conduits to your own higher realms of understanding.

But we are all children of the earth, comprised of the same minerals found throughout nature. There are even crystals in our bones—crystalline structures are in our skeletal structure, our teeth, and in our ears.

And even without anything else, you can tap into this crystalline energy and remind yourself that you already possess the tools you require for any journey you set foot on. Crystals help facilitate our natural ability to heal, but it is you who heals you. Different crystals will bring out different energies, but it is all within you.

Each ritual is a journey in itself. Come back to these rituals again and again. Allow your experiences to differ and explore possibilities within yourself and your own internal healing. See the instructions as suggestions and feel free to adjust them accordingly. These are meant to be gentle exercises with the ability to expand as deeply as you wish to go.

Treasure Within Exercise:

Materials:

Mirror
Shower

This exercise is an easy way to include self-love practices in your everyday routine. It combines crystal healing, self-massage, and the therapeutic art of eye-gazing. It only adds 5 to 7 minutes to your daily routine (but can last longer, if you would like!). Keeping a crystal charged with your intention on your bathroom counter can help act as a reminder to include this practice in your daily routine.

Have you ever looked into your own eyes? It may feel strange at first, but the more you do it, the easier it becomes. Before getting into the shower, take some time looking into the mirror.

Focus on your eyes. There is a reason they say eyes are the windows to the soul. Looking into someone’s eyes or into your own eyes for an extended period can be a spiritual experience in itself. It is a bonding and trust building exercise.

  1. Place one or both hands on your heart in front of the mirror.
  2. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in. As you exhale, open your eyes.
  3. Gaze softly into your less dominant eye.
  4. Try to keep a steady focus, and imagine you are looking deeper and deeper within the eye.
  5. Tell yourself aloud or silently: “Thank you for seeing me for who I really am. I love you, I forgive you, and to continue this love I will…” Finish the thought.
  6. Step into the shower.
  7. In the shower, recognize that within you there is crystal. Imagine that the shower has acted as a cleansing agent, just like you would use to clear any other crystals. Tune in to what you feel a crystal goes through energetically when it is being cleaned. Feel excess and unnecessary energy running off you, down into the shower drain.
  8. After the shower, once you get out and while still wet, take a deep breath and imagine your skeleton inside you, glowing with the crystals throughout.
  9. State this intention: “I appreciate all my body does for me.”
  10. Rub your hands together so they become warm. Now, put your focus on your toes—you may touch them if you’d like. With your attention, you are activating this part of you. This can be done by imagining orgasmic energy but placing it in your toes. Focus your attention on the bones in all your little toes, and feel the subtle vibration of the crystals within you. Give thanks to this part of your body.
  11. Move up toward every part of you, thinking deep down all the way through to the skeletal system. Keep imagining the orgasmic energy moving to each part of the body you focus on. How does it feel to caress and give praise to every inch of you? How does it feel to know of the inner workings that are happening constantly within you?
  12. Keep doing this while working all the way up to your facial structure. Softly caress your face with the tips of your fingers. You are creating a circuit of enhanced energy, simply by putting your attention on these underlying minerals within you.
  13. To finish, stand erect. Take deep breaths and smile (your teeth have crystal, too!). Acknowledge the positive choices you have made to give yourself loving attention. Doing this exercise often will benefit the relationship you have with yourself, by putting emphasis on the way you feel inside of your body.
