Do you or your lover ever get “tantric twitches” or a sort of “turned on Tourettes” when you’re aroused? They’re rather jerky, almost spastic movements known as “kriyas.”
Sounds weird, I know. But it actually feels yummy, as long as it’s not freaking out your partner, if you’re with one. (This video from the CBS TV show, The Doctors, includes a demo.)
The word kriya means action (though you probably won’t find it in a western dictionary). Another meaning of Kriya is an outward physical manifestation of awakened kundalini, such as a spontaneous body movement related to Kundalini energy flow.
Kundalini is vital life force energy that resides at the base of your spine, like a coiled up sleeping snake. It usually lies dormant unless awakened, so most of us are unaware of it.
I first started experiencing this very pleasurable (but rarely discussed) jerky phenomenon over 15 years ago while I was making love. Over time, I realized it was kundalini energy being released as it flows up my spine. Once it started, kriyas soon became intrinsic to my erotic experience.
My personal view is that these twitches can start or increase as energetic blocks get cleared out, and your sexual energy starts flowing freely throughout your entire body. This can have a very cleansing and revitalizing effect, and it feels great!
These movements have changed for me over time. As “kinks” in my energy flow smoothed out, my kriyas became less jerky than shown in the video. They have become more like a full-body wave motion – almost a subtle orgasmic flow, which (as you can imagine) is increasingly pleasurable.
Though I cannot make kriyas happen, it has become very natural for me to open to these waves of energy. I can stop them if I want to, although it feels rather rigid to do so – or I can “allow” them, which feels great and very intimately connected with my partner.
Just knowing about this phenomenon may give you internal permission to “allow” it for yourself if it feels like it’s starting to happen.
A big part of what I do is help people clear out cultural inhibitions and sexual wounding that may have dampened your natural spontaneous sexual expression. And this can help unleash this wonderful energy flow.
To be clear, as much as I enjoy kriyas, I don’t think you need to experience them to have a fantastic sex life. Another reason I’m telling you about this phenomenon is because…
…if you and/or your partner are experiencing kriyas during lovemaking, at least one of you may be wondering what’s going on. So, it’s a good idea to discuss it, and I hope this helps you broach the subject.
If you already enjoy this energy release, or have been with someone who does, I’d love for you to leave a comment below.
