Exercises for Increasing Sexual Energy
Exercise in general is important for sexual vitality because it builds endurance, strength, and flexibility. Your body thrives on movement, and physical activity helps to keep your body balanced and your energy flowing. The more physically fit you are, the more sexual energy you will have. Vigorous exercise also stimulates the production of endorphins, the natural brain chemicals that have an uplifting effect on your emotions. However, avoid overexercising, which can cause fatigue and diminish your sexual vitality. Moderate daily exercise, such as brisk walking, dancing, or bicycling, that makes you feel energized, but not depleted, is best. Another benefit of regular exercise is that it helps you feel good about your body, which heightens feelings of sensuality.
For a simple exercise that concentrates energy in the pelvis and enhances sexual energy, stand in a comfortable position with your feet hip-width apart and your knees relaxed. Take a couple of slow, deep breaths to relax, inhaling and exhaling in an easy rhythm. Close your eyes, and rub your palms briskly together until you generate warmth in your hands. When your hands feel warm, briskly rub your palms over your kidney area (your low mid-back on either side of your spine) for 15 to 30 seconds. Rub your hands together again for a few seconds to generate energy in your palms, and then immediately place your palms over your lower abdomen for 30 seconds. As you feel the warmth from your hands, imagine that energy is circulating through out your pelvis, healing and energizing your sexual organs.
Rub your hands briskly together again, and place your palms over your kidneys with your fingers pointing down. Slowly begin to rotate your hips in a small clockwise circle (imagine that you are drawing a circle on the floor) while keeping your upper body still. Inhale as you rotate your hips to the rear, and exhale as you circle forward. Repeat this circular movement 25 times in a clockwise direction, and then repeat 25 circles to the left.
