Embracing Your Sexuality

By: Navjot Dhaliwal

One of the greatest aspects of being a woman is her sexuality.. and this doesn’t necessarily have to mean having sex. Women have been shamed for centuries for “showing too much skin” and even speaking up for themselves. Expressing ourselves is an art and it should never be taken away from us.

In this blog post, I’d love to go over ​three reasons​ why I believe expressing ourselves sexually is ​empowering​ instead of shameful.


1. It opens up your ​Sacral Chakra ​energy. The Sacral Chakra is our second energy center, located just above the pubic bone. It is our center for creativity, especially for women, as we literally give birth to souls incarnating as bodies through this center. It is the most powerful creative energy on the planet and it is highly sacred. Aspects that block the Sacral Chakra include shame, guilt, worry, fear, and dullness. It also represents our pleasure center, DUH! Ways to unblock and create better flow in the Sacral area is dancing, connect with water (river, beach, ocean, a bath), meditation, yoga, and affirmations!

Some of my favorite affirmations or beliefs to open up the Sacral Chakra are:

“I deserve to experience pleasure and have my needs met.”

“I am confident that what I offer the world is enough.”

“It is safe to express my sexual self in fun, creative and healthy ways.”

“I attract relationships with loving, good people who will support me.”

When the Sacral Chakra is in balance, a woman feels more inspired, playful, creative, satisfied, and connected!


2. We should never feel ​guilty ​for wanting to feel sexy. “Sexy” has become a taboo word, as we tend to shame women for feeling sexy. We automatically think that a woman is wanting to feel “sexy” solely to please a man. However, feeling sexy has to do with how you feel about yourself. True sensuality starts with how we feel about ourselves and then we give it away when we find someone that we feel comfortable doing so with, not the other way around. Ladies, we have never needed anyone’s approval or validation to feel worthy or to feel sexy! Get dressed up for yourself, get a boudoir photoshoot, allow yourself to feel sexy without the shame or stigma behind it! You deserve it!


3. It allows us to experience a part of our womanhood. Sex is a normal part of being human and a woman’s body is literal art. Whether you’re skinny or curvy, short or tall, it doesn’t matter- you have a body that deserves your love! Women put everyone else first before themselves, and it’s about time that we took time daily to love and express our womanhood! Taking even five to ten minutes a day to massage some coconut oil into our skin, speak loving words to ourselves, and complement one another can make the biggest difference! We have spent way too long comparing ourselves to each other and not enough time embracing sisterhood.


Know that you are safe to express yourself however you choose and no one can take that away from you. Choose how you want to dress, speak words that show how passionate you are, and never settle for anything less than you deserve. You are stronger than you think! May we all empower ourselves and empower other sisters on their journey towards loving every aspect of their being!
