We have things we want more in life: a better job, a more adventurous partner, a really sexy jet ski that we can ride at sunset. Stubborn hard work is a way to achieve these goals, but did you know that you can manifest the things you want through masturbation?
At least according to the principles of an ancient practice known today as "magic of sex", which states that exploiting the energy of sexual pleasure can turn your dreams into reality. While the word "magick" tends to conjure up images of spells, potions and that Nicole Kidman movie in which she's a witch, there's really nothing that woo-woo does about it. As Eva Clay, an expert in sexology and sexology, explains, the manifestation through masturbation concerns the setting and visualization of positive intentions that acquire power through the creative energy of pleasure. Or, in other words: it's the change in attitude you need to make a crap, or to become more open to the good things that are making you way.
"Using your sexual energy will bring you the things you want faster because it helps your brain believe you are worthy of the things you want," Clay says. "Turn your & # 39; can not & # 39; in & # 39; I can. & # 39;"

You can demonstrate anything you want with masturbation, Clay says, but the most successful events tend to be those that help people grow and expand in positive ways: new partners, better jobs, deep home buyers or relief from the fright of the stage The best-selling author and Slutist editor Kristin Kourvette even attributes sexual credit to land her, her book launched her career.
This is something that people have done for thousands of years, with the first and most famous example of people using sexual energy to create things that are different from the children who come from everyone's favorite beach: the Kama Sutra of about 2000 years. However, while the evocation through the coming is not new, the practice has seen a modern rebirth and has been accepted by many millennia interested in the use of personal pleasure as a form of personal growth. Not everyone is doing it so mystically, through – for those who are more interested in complaining than in manifesting, the magic of sex also has a cousin of cousins called Mindful Masturbation that is nearing the peak of the trend.
"Careful masturbation is a wonderful practice to attract attention, and therefore sensation, to the body," explains Clay. "Face the shame and the mind-body connection – it's wonderful and it will improve your sex life". Careful masturbation is less witchcraft, more meditation – a practice that can increase pleasure through greater self-awareness, but does not necessarily materialize a boyfriend who shares your unique golfing passion in the way that promises Magick.

The recent popularity of sexual magic has everything to do with the love story of the mainstream media with all the things of witchcraft and well-being. With celebrities like Katy Perry, Adele and Lena Dunham hooking on the healing powers of the crystals, and Gwyneth Paltrow familiarizing herself with jade with every part of her body, it's no surprise that the offer of empowerment and control of Sex Magick resonates on a cultural background that is increasingly unstable. The second wave of sexual wizards could be a way to translate that goal of empowerment – as well as the insistence of science that sex, masturbation and pleasure are healthy – into a sensual realm where the powerful energies of pleasure and orgasm can intensify its effects.
Clay also says he has to change his attitude towards sex. "Our cultural taboos are changing," explains Clay. "In the United States, we are challenging long-standing opinions about sex as shameful.A more and more, cultural conversation sees sexuality as a natural element of human vitality and well-being, and so ancient practices like Tantra and Taoism that see sex as a tool for vitality are coming back into the limelight.
At the same time, research using brain imaging technology and other advanced metrics indicates that a healthy sex life (alone or with a partner) contributes to longevity, increased immunity to disease and disease, improved mood and well-being mental and physical general. Science is undeniable: the more we experience pleasure, orgasm and physical intimacy, the healthier and happier we are. "
Because of these changes, says Clay, people are beginning to understand sex in a way more similar to how ancient cultures have practiced wellness similar to yoga or meditation. You do not have to have a yogic master able to travel with the third eye to do it, however – anyone can pull off conscious masturbation.

So, how does it work? Can you really bring down your jet-ski dreams?
Unfortunately, nothing like water bikes is so simple, but Clay offers some discoveries – like real scientific discoveries – that help explain why sex can be an effective way to create what you want.
"The event is made possible through access to a person's subconscious mind," says Clay. "And while people have used things like dancing, playing drums, whirling or singing to get there since the dawn of time, few things are better at reaching the subconscious than the orgasm."
To be sure, a study by Janniko Georgia at the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands, has found that orgasm can produce a short but neurologically distinct state of consciousness during which the mind goes into the background and people feel like they can "let go" "This, I theorized, is because orgasm temporarily turns off the lateral orbitofrontal cortex of the brain, to a key player in the processing of that input produces anxiety fear and distraction In its most relaxed and orgasmic state, the brain has a much easier time to focus and visualize an intention, two things that have been shown to increase the power of the event, or the ability to bring something into your life changing the way you think, feel or behave.

Yes, when it comes to visualization, to see is more than to believe; he is creating. A 2004 study published in Neuropsychology found that mental workouts are almost as effective in increasing muscle strength as current physical workouts, and that doing both is more effective than doing alone. In fact, study participants who simply visualized physical exercise gained muscle strength at about half the percentage of those who pumped iron. This same idea could be applied under the belt.
The state of subconscious, fleeting yet powerful orgasm is also crucial when it comes to creating new neural connections that change behavior, attitude and mood. During orgasm, our brains become particularly neuroplastic and are able to create more neural connections than they are while distracted by the hustle and bustle of conscious life. If we want to make a change in our lives, rewiring our brain to make that change – or to be more open to it – is a good place to start, and riding the neuroplastic wave of orgasm is a strategic moment particular to do it.
Pleasure also triggers us for the event, putting us in a more energetic and balanced state, says Clay. It's like doing yoga before a great presentation to calm you down and center yourself, only the method you're using to get there tends to feel much better than your standard descendant dog. "When you masturbate, you're the one thing you need to focus on. You're touching the way you want to be without the distraction of a partner's needs, often in a way that's more pleasant to you."
Associated sex can have the same effect, but on the way it is more effective if your partner is on the same page and is practicing her sexual magic or using her energy to power yours. Trying to find that partner is not impossible, but, as they say, if you want work to be done well …

Do you want to try alone?
First of all, says Clay, he decides exactly what your intention or desire is before starting, taking care to be as specific as possible. If you are looking for money, display an exact figure in dollars. If it's love, it displays the exact human and the relationship. "Focus on what you really want and stay connected to that desire," he says. "You really try to feel like you already have."
So, keep going, keep this vision in your mind as you allow yourself to feel sexually aroused and feed your sensual energy. "If you can, refer to the climax," he advises. "Embracing in that feeling of pleasure while holding your intention in your mind increases the strength of the practice." When you reach orgasm, use that energy to see and feel your desire become a reality.
Theoretically, through the neural processes mentioned above, this should make your brain more receptive to a big change, like getting a new job, or more perceptive of signs and opportunities that you could take advantage of to get there.

However, if you want a particular thing – for example, a person or a job – the manifestation of masturbation will only work if that thing is right for you.
"Sometimes the universe has another plan," he says. "However, this practice can help you stay open to receiving something you may not even know you need."
The results of this practice are rarely instantaneous, he adds. It's not just because you visualize Hemsworth's face when you're going, it will show dripping on your door – you have to work on it. The more you practice, the stronger the effect.
Then, it will show up dripping on your front door.
And if it does not, well, the worst that can happen is that you give yourself an orgasm.
