Masturbation (A Spiritual Perspective on Masturbating) – Teal Swan –


*Music by Lisa Thiel – Kuan Yin’s Mantra Hello there. Masturbation is the act of touching yourself
or otherwise stimulating yourself, so as to create sexual arousal. Seems harmless enough. However, masturbation is become a taboo subject. Mastubation is completely natural
when we’re incarnated in the physical body. Why is that? Because it’s natural
for anything that’s physically manifested, to naturally flow in the direction
of something that creates pleasure. We’re drawn towards those things. That’s why children naturally
begin to masturbate when they’re young. However, most of us who are alive today and have reached adulthood, have been raised with this kind off idea that there’s something wrong, immoral, bad, embarassing or even downright evil about masturbation. In fact many spiritual teachers
who don’t even align with a particular religion, seem to think that masturbation is detrimental. So which is it? Is masturbation good,
or is masturbation bad? What I’m gonna say is, like any tool,
it can be either, depending on the conscious intentions
of the user of that tool. First let’s visit the positive side of masturbation, shall we. 1. Obviously, it builds energy. Anyone who has masturbated, will tell you that. The sexual response cycle
is divided into four phases. Excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution. Orgasm, also called sexual climax, is the sudden release of the accumulated sexual energy that has been built in response to stimulation. So it’s relatively easy to see how sexual stimulation, as a builder of energy, could be a useful tool to use. In fact, I did an entire video
about using orgasms to manifest. I strongly encourage you to watch that video, titled:
“How to use an orgasm to manifest.” 2. Obviously if a person can begin
to build sexual energy, and knowing that sexual energy
is no different than life force energy, then it’s obvious that that energy
is now readily available to channel in to whatever outlet you would wish to channel it towards. This is the aspect of masturbation or sexual arousal,
or sexual energy in general, that most spiritual people and spiritual teachers,
are concerned with. But they aren’t the only ones to have discovered it. A great technique, is to sexually stimulate yourself,
as to build that energy and to reach that point in the sexual cycle, that is called plateau, but to not allow yourself to fully orgasm, instead to channel all of that energy, once you have breathed it into the totality of your body, towards whatever pursuit
you wish to aim your focus at, at this time. This technique is a favorite among athletes, who are known to stimulate themselves
to the point of plateau, but not let themselves orgasm. Instead consciously breath in that energy
throughout their entire body, before a big game, a race. This is also a favorite amongst scholars, who use the same technique right before a test or talk and performers who use it
to enhance their performances. For those of us, who are interested
in using our primal sexual energy, to create in our life,
or as part of our spiritual practice, what we can know is
that we can use this technique, to channel our energy
into quite literally anything that we want to. We can channel it into our meditative practice, channel into enhancing our shadow work, channel it into our connection with our partner, becoming more emotionally available, maybe a creative project which we wish to do. 3. When we feel pleasure, we come into
a mental, emotional and physical state of alignment. What that looks like outside the third dimension,
this physical dimension, when someone comes into alignment, is that they open themselves to the complete flow
of this energy, this life force energy, that is coming from what we would call source itself, into us as an extension of that source. So all of our meridians are open,
the energy channels that run through our body, our chakra’s begin to open
and the body starts to come into alignment. Now this is really important when we understand,
that an out of alignment state is what creates illness. So when you come into a state of alignment,
your body begins to heal. We add to our overall health. The body responds to alignment by following suit. For example, it releases oxytocin
and endorphins which relief pain. The immune system is mobilized. Blood flow increases throughout the body
which further nourishes our body. Our cells begin to have better respiration and a portion of our brain that is associated with fear and anxiety goes dorment. So the bottom lign is,
masturbation can help keep us physically healthy. 4. Masturbation enhances self-intimacy, which in turn, creates greater levels of other intimacy. It is critical that we become intimate
with ourself in this life. And what is intimacy?
It is seeing into ourselves, feeling into ourselves, hearing into ourselves,
understanding ourselves. And becoming sexually aware of ourselves
through experimentation is a great way to enhance
this level of intimacy with yourself. When your master this, you have a sense of self
to bring into a relationship with other people. You’ll be much more able
to offer intimacy to someone else, if you learn how to offer it to yourself. You will be surprised
how much you can learn about yourself, just by engaging with yourself in a sexual way. I think it is an absolute travesty
when people enter into relationships, having no awareness of themselves
as a sexual being. If you’re unaware of your sexuality,
you’re completely at the mercy of whatever sexual experience you experience
as a result of getting into a relationship. Let’s hope the other person has some experience, cause chances are,
you’re not gonna be that satisfied. It’s even more sad,
when people are alienated from themselves sexually. This is a huge problem in the world today for women. Some of whom have avoided thinking about,
touching or educating themselves about any part of themselves
that they consider sexual. When this is the case
in a relationship that turns sexual, you are at the mercy of inexperience. You cannot direct the experience
in a way that would be pleasurable to you. You’re just basically at the mercy of your partner, who has no idea what you like and don’t like, and want and don’t want,
because you don’t either. This can make your sex life
and even your relationship a complete disaster. To avoid yourself sexually,
is a state of resistance to yourself. This is not healthy and it fuels shame. 5. During orgasm, your awareness
or sense of your own identity, or ego is dissolved. And so, for a brief moment in time,
you can touch your infinite nature. This is the very reason why traditions,
such as tantra, even exist. It’s the idea that through sexuality,
you might have a shot at touching the infinite
or at achieving enlightenment even. So you can see that I’ve pretty much made the case
that masturbation is not only healthy for you, it’s what we should be doing
if we wanna live a conscious life. However, now i’m gonna take you
into the pitfalls of masturbation. 1. It can become an addiction. It is true that for many of us, the craving for orgasm is the craving for relief. Relief in the form of release. This feeling of relief becomes it’s own addiction. This is a big part of what we are addicted to, if we’re addicted to pornography. We often seek out pleasure, not for the sake of pleasure,
but to try to escape from pain. For this reason, masturbation, especially if it’s chronic,
is a form of self-medication. It blends the senses
and makes you forget everything else. It’s a hypnotic and trans-like state that makes you lose track of time. If you use masturbation in this way, you use it to get relief from something. It is used to escape
a painful emotional state. Addiction is an indication
that there is something underlying the behaviour that absolutely needs to be focussed on and dealth with. It needs your unconditional presence. It’s a real common thing that people will tell you,
that one reason that masturbation is healthy, is that it reduces stress. I don’t actually agree. Because masturbation doesn’t actually
solve the underlying cause of that stress. Instead it just medicates you,
so that you can’t feel it. It’s a bit like using masturbation
like pain medication. When we’re using masturbation in this way,
we’re not using it to bring us into the present moment. We’re using it to escape the present moment. If we are dedicated to maximizing our life, we have to stop running away
from this aspect of ourself and actually deal with the root cause of the problem. This is how we’re gonna create the kind off life
we actually want to show up for. In other words, it’s time that you have a real
heart-to-heart with yourself. about what exactly it is
that you’re actually using masturbation to get away from. That is what needs
your conscious presence at this time. Now you may or may not be masturbating
in tandem with pornography or with mental fantasies
that you create in your own mind, which is another form of pornography. But because this particular issue
of chronic masturbation, or using masturbation as an addiction, is so closely linked to our porn addiction, what I want you to do
is to watch my video on Youtube that is titled: “How to overcome porn addiction”. 2. Orgasm releases oxytocyn and what we’re finding is that oxytocyn
enhances our bonding with each other, which is why a healthy sex life,
even if that sex life envolves masturbation, not just sex, actually creates more faitfull partners. However, there is one exception to this rule. There’s one demographic
that doesn’t fit in to this category. It’s the people who are trying to use masturbation
to avoid intimacy. As I said before, tools can be used for harm or for good. We can either use masturbation to enhance intimacy
or to avoid it all together.laughsIf we have a fear of intimacy, we can fall into the behavior of masturbating
because we want nothing to do with the vulnerability of connecting to other people. We condition ourselves
to respond to self stimulation, so we never have to feel the vulnurability
of connecting with someone. In fact, we may become sensitized
to the degree that our own touch is the only way we can become aroused. We may even render ourselves
incapable of reaching sexual climax by being touched by another person. We are particularly at risk of this if we have what many psychologists call,
an avoidant-attachment style. Before you count yourself out of this category, because you can and do have sex, I also want you to be aware that it is possible for us to have sex, that has nothing to do with intimacy as well. I like to this type of sex,
mutual masturbation. Because we’re not connected during sex, instead we’re using each other to get off. Unfortunately, most porn on the market today
demonstrates this kind of sex and leads us to believe this is what real sex is,
when it isn’t. So consider looking close at yourself in the mirror,
so to speak and discover whether masturbation
is just your way of being sexual without the emotional risk
of connecting with another person. Our arousal circuitry is easily programmed. It’s easily programmed to prefer self sex,
involving sexual fantasies and self touch, rather than intimacy with other people. And this can obviously have
devastating effects on our relationships. 3. As I said before, there is no way to separate out
life force energy and sexual energy. It is all the same kind of energy. You are a sexual being. When you are sexually stimulated, you are raising this energy within you. So the question I want you to ask yourself is, what am I directing that energy towards? Sexual energy is creative energy. If you are getting yourself
to a point of sexual arousal, sexual climax and then sexual release for the sake of release itself, you are in fact squandering that energy. What I am the most concerned with, as a spiritual practicioner and as a spiritual teacher, is the fact that you can very easily become depleted. You are robbing yourself of creative energy. This energy is meant to be channeled towards creation. Whether that creation,
is the creation of connection or actual life, or the creation of ideas,
or the creation of the life-style you want to live. A state of atrophy or apathy is common for people
who are unconscious about their masturbation. And who masturbate habitually. Because the energy they have
to create their waking life with, is being spent. When we do not know how to consciously
bring in an endless stream of energy, because we cannot consistently
maintain a state of alignment, we can end up
depleting ourselves through masturbation and our body will become unhealthy because of it. It is important that we set forth,
in this path of spiritualiy, from a space of intrinsically desiring growth,
intrinsically desiring expansion. However, those very traditions,
that teach you that masturbation is not okay, are the very traditions that have absolutely no concern, whether your spiritual practice is intrinsically
or extrinsically motivated. In essence, what they’re doing is,
they’re saying: “Look, there’s a spiritual ideal,
and you should be extrinsically motivated to achieve that ideal state
because it makes you more loveable, it makes you good and thus it’s gonna make you acceptable to me, to the priest or to God. This is a carrot-and-stick philosophy. They operate through punishment and reward. But the time has come to let go of these traditions because they no longer
serve our progression as a species. There is no giant man in the sky called God who is expecting you to live up
to his image of spiritual perfection. And I can assure you,
he is not sitting up there in the clouds, thinking to himself: “Oh my God,
I’m so ashamed they’re masturbating” There is no difference between life force energy
and sexual energy whether you like it or not, you are a sexual being. That sexuality does not own you,
it does not dictate your behavior because instead, it is you. It is a natural part of you. It is a natural part of you
and no part of that sexuality is wrong. All energy can be channeled towards
use that benefits or use that harms. But by embracing yourself as a sexual being, and becoming fully intimate with yourself sexually, including masturbating, the likelihood that that sexual energy
will be channeled towards harm, is greatly diminished. Instead, masturbation and sexuality
can be something that greatly benefits you and benefits the people around you. Sexuality is a beautiful thing,
provided that that sexuality is conscious. Have a good week. Subtitles by the Amara.org community

  4. If you were my partner I would definitely not need to help myself, but alas you are not 🙁

  5. When a girl masturbates does she spill an egg ? no , she knows nothing .to be to be a man …she knows not what it means to know what it means to be a man. masturbation is a tax on a man .. not to be wasted on that they think they are so beautiful . females are so ignorant .. I love this girl but she is not

  6. Young people nowadays have the benefit of the truth concerning masturbation, natural etc. Back in the day it was taboo. Speaking of taboo, what is your belief when it comes to circumcision? Why is male genital mutilation accepted/ normal? I personally want my foreskin back. 🙂

  7. Thanks for talking about this untalked about a very important topic that most people don't have the courage to talk about!

  8. 2 mins in to this video and I have to masturbate 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️😁😁

  9. There is nothing wrong with masturbating..if it is wrong. Why has nature given this ..??it is a taboo created by idiot humans who want to do spiritual things…now it has become physchological and make most people supress it by force which is wrong

  10. prostate orgasm stimulated throw penis stoking well would do you know the unpredictable problem in todays society

  11. thank teal you are a very intelligent woman you know to much good you i am very happy for you

  12. Lol teal can you just create a 3 hour compilation of your outtro music for us to listen to? Love that sound

  13. Ahahaha loved it!! I tried to imagine god sit on a cloud !! Thank you!!

  14. When you masturbate..your energy levels go down
    Anxiety goes up
    Dosent matter the reason why..its baddddddd..
    Maybe for girls its different

  15. i noticied since i stopped my testostorone and body benefitted and gives energy but i also found out that as i go without it longer my drive for it has gone. but still having issues on the homosexuality part why is religion so aggainst it could you do one on that?

  16. .. That's a trip, and then l began scaling down youtube afterwards, and moments later, this vision came into play.

  17. Channeling into a dream between you and l entwined in a dream within an inner out of body that weren't like a dream at all. Even though you didnt want me to know it were you, problem was is that your instincts to have your mind on how long your hair is from you couldn't be more stealthy.
    Remember, open rebuke is better than hidden love. And was intimate l believe you know .. knew that too.

  18. My tongue will do all the work for your fingers if you dont mind me sayin so my love.

  19. Teal says… Read my book, but if you are going to masterbate, go use your tool properly.

  20. Thanks Tale, listening to you is a great way to start the day

  21. I loved your explanation of benefits & pitfalls depending on motives. But I especially love that you expose religions for trying to control people without weighing both sides objectively. "The time has come for us to let go of these traditions because they no longer serve our progression as a species." I just shared the story of my own waking up from religion on my Channel. The planet is ready to expand into enlightenment, more people are waking up from these damaging ideals, and I can't wait to join you and other lightworkers who are sharing this truth. Wish me luck, as I've just started posting videos that will startle people who are not ready, but hopefully open the door to freedom for those who are.

  22. What an awesome viewpoint! Thank you so much! I am still learning so much! Can’t stop watching you! I hope the videos won’t stop! I was recently guided to start my channel and posted my first video, the light in me, sees the light in you. I would love if you could check me out and let me know your thoughts! You definitely inspire me! I love you! Sending love, light, and blessings to all!

  23. So, do i always have to channel it. Or can i just masturbate for the sake of masturbating sometimes.

  24. 🙏Musterbation is wrong my sister please stop this video

  25. Too much makes you weak..
    Not at all brings rise deviant and negative thoughts leading to evil acts

  26. In the video, you talk about masturbating but not ejaculating. Known as “edging” to circulate the sexual energy throughout the body. Then, in the downfall you say that masturbation can become an addiction. Can edging everyday be an addiction? Or is it good to edge everyday to keep the energy flowing? Or by addiction, did you mean excessive ejaculation during masturbation?

  27. I think our bodies are designed to feel and enjoy orgasms as much as we want. Masturbation naturally occurs or starts during adolescence, both male or female. And if this is so natural to the human body, there is nothing wrong with. Women that deny they don't are hypocrites .

  28. this video promotes men releasing their energy, which women cant get, and whatever evil is in you, made you create this series of videos. go to hell already

  29. Masturbating is a taboo. It prohibits the person to experience real intimacy with another real person. It puts a brake into real potential. We all masturbate but I wouldn't say too much is good. Becomes a bad habit kills the tire potential of a human being to feel and touch a woman . I rather have sex with a woman than find self satisfaction. After masturbation i feel lost confused depressed angry with myself.

  30. That is not true. Not at all. When you are masturbated its not about she said. Its about when you do it you loose all the highest energy who the universe give you. Second when you masturbate the demons of sex they are with you, they involve in this and in the end they eat your energy.
    And sorry to said this but please brothers and sister look at this "modern" woman in this video look at her eyes, what do you see?
    Look the background of red colors.
    Please dont leave eveyone who have the power to make a video or a channel on youtube, dont leave them to manipulate you.
    Your energy its your power.
    You can do sex sharing the love with someone who you care. Do t spend something so precious manturbading.

  31. 1:17 "Most of us who are alive today…have been raised with this kind of idea that there's something wrong [etc] about masturbation" – I disagree. The bigger problem for many women is that they've been taught to hate their own bodies based on unrealistic aesthetic standards, and have also been taught that they don't deserve pleasure.

    7:30 "sexual self-avoidance … fuels shame" – it's actually more accurate & helpful to understand that shame fuels sexual self-avoidance (also there's another big issue re sexual dysfunction – that it can be a side effect of medications)

  32. YOU are sooo AWESOME!! I love your channel and the videos you produce! Thank you for your help on my spiritual journey!!

  33. We are animals, but our context is different in comparision of the context of wild animals. We have to use self-control to adjust our behavior to our real nature. If we don't do that, we will not be aligned on our essence, our subconscious more primitive, which is formed and designed by milions of years of evolution, and there will be an imbalance in our emotional systems in forms of empty, anxiety and even depression. Our condition of human beings means that we transformed our context to make our lives more easily or confortable… but we have to be conscious if this changes are good to us or not to aply self control in our benefit. In this therms, there are a parallellism between sex of nowadays and our need to movement, for example. In the past our ancestors had to move to survive by a lot of reasons (hunting, not be hunted, explore, reach water, etc). But today, there are not a necessary reason to move because we transforme our context (with agriculture, technology) and we have a market in a few meters with all types of food. Perhaps, we realize that is not a good idea ignore our primitive design and be sedentary. Then, we force to us (self-control) to make some exercise to be helthy and aligned to our nature. With antinconceptives and masturbation happens the same: we are ignoring our real nature, our natural life processes because sex is linked to procreation. Enthusiasm with sex in a new relation, in its firts moments, is because our primitive emotional systems is regarding us to have descendence in a near future. Our future will be emotionally intense because there will be a child and a new family will be created, and this is a very great to our gens. But we are lying to our gens, to our subconscious part of us that doesn't understand to reasons. You can't reason to our gens and say to them: "Ey genes, don't worry if I don't move… I have a market with food in the same street that I live… It isn't necessary!". And our genes replies: "Aaah okaay bro jeje then I don't punish you and you will not to face with heart problems, obesity, diabetes… thanks by information, we are in contact." Obviously not. Sex is the same, but isn't so obvious. Nowadays, we have the possibility to have a lot of sex pleasure without the naturally creative consequences associated: descendence. Then, our genes are confused. "You are having sex bro, but… Where is our children??? We had a deal…" Your genes believes that there are something wrong with the relation and makes you be worried and bored with it. It's usually happens nowadays when the relationship lasts 2 years aproximately (what scientists say love lasts…) because our genes read that this person is infertil or something else, and force to you to end the relationship and reach another. All of that occurs unconsciously, of course, and change our perception about our partner. When we can see that antinconceptives and masturbation aren't give to us freedom and are turning aside our original ways that our nature designed, we will live a life more real and full.
    Many things of what society and the system offers you is an illusion…

  34. To me masturbating isnt healthy and i presently do it ..i feel my proof is when i ejaculate i feel so drained afterward and no energy for rest of my day but when i ejaculate during real sex i dont have that same drain feeling .so there is a reason why..
    Plus this lady looks like a demon in disguise or a messenger from the dark one.lol

  35. Omg where were you all my life? I have felt so confused why I felt masturbation was helping to align me! 🙌❤🌻

  36. I like your videos, very interesting and informatives, but o got 2 doubts that i hope you can answer me: 1- you are a very wise woman, where do you got all this knowledge for videos? Because,…danm Thats smart!!
    2-is about this video subject, what about someone os on nofap and what is your perspective about ir even so i just saw good infos about masturbation?
    Thanks for your wor and keep up it this awesome job👍
    Ps- can you do a vídeo about manifesting trought art/drawing?
    Thanks once again

  37. I have 2 question Teal: (1.) What about asexual people? If they have no desire for sex, then what's that about if we're all sexual beings; (2.) What if you simply can't find anyone to connect with do to geography, living circumstances, or just because you don't resonate with anyone spirituality & you are forced to go LOOONG periods of time without being able to have sex with another person & masturbation is the only way you can release your sexual energy on a regular basis?? How do you not get addicted & lose your desire to have sex with another person when it's always an ordeal just to meet someone your comfortable with (minus settling for whatever comes along)?? Asking for a friend . . . 👀

  38. I do not agree with this video … When you masturbate you are losing you motivation to finding intimacy and real girl in the real world and because this is easy and available way to achieve orgasm you would prefer to masturbate rather than finding real partner …

  39. If sex creates life (a baby), then it’s energy could be used to manifest virtually anything; it is said from a ‘sports’ perspective, that guys perform better after they had sex.
    Thus the success of ‘a thing’ would be depended upon the focus and intention of it’s energy.

  40. You have such clarity and seem so relaxed on this subject. A visual demonstration would be infinitely beneficial for my understandiing of the energies involved in creative manifestation. I Iove those earrings by the way.

  41. The is nothing wrong with masterbation, but I've been practicing abstinence in order to keep energy to use for clearing out blocked energy in my body and chakras.

  42. Actually teal. I know it's a weird subject, but can you make a video on how to use sexual energy to clear out trauma or anything like that?

  43. So what if I get horny and tense but live with siblings and DONT want to be all horny around them at all ?
