Once upon a time sexual women ruled the world. They were independent, empowered and embodied love.
Their energy flowed through every crevice of the earth with the capacity to heal and restore.
These women were Sacred Prostitutes, and it’s time they were reawakened.
The History of the Sacred Prostitute
In ancient Sumeria, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Greece, there were no brothels. Instead there were Temples of the Sacred Prostitutes inhabited by holy women who embodied love, owned their sexuality, and held the highest spiritual authority.
These women were known as Priestesses, or Sacred Prostitutes.
A common practice that took place in the Temple was called “Taking the War out of Man”.
Upon returning from war, men were invited to pass through the Temple doors. The Priestess would bathe, soothe and knead their physical, emotional and spiritual wounds.
She would expand her magnetic field to absorb all of his wounded energy, literally drawing the effects of war from his system. Through the power of her energy, and purity of her femininity, she would gently and tenderly love him back to wholeness.
“the Sexual Priestess was regarded as holy and celebrated for her sexuality.”
Men entered the Temple with the full permission and blessing of their families, and emerged cleansed of the nightmare of war. This process was a natural and essential part of life.
The Sacred Prostitute was not shamed, viewed as a victim, or “forced into prostitution.” She willingly took the office of Priestess, and acted from an empowered place of service.
She reminds us of how human sexuality is directly related to a well-balanced sense of self, and how bodily pleasure should be both sought and celebrated.
This realisation has the potential to restore both society and the people within it.
How We Can Reawaken Holy Sexual Women
The Sacred Prostitute has laid dormant for thousands of years. Reawakening her won’t be easy, but by taking these steps we can work towards an existence where female sexuality and its inherent goodness is again central to humanity’s physical and spiritual well-being:
#1 Have a conversation about sexuality’s capacity to heal.
#2 Make a decision to consciously celebrate the sacredness of self.
#3 Embark on a sexual healing journey that includes attention to relational intimacy.
