ALL-CHAKRA TANTRA by Sasha Lessin, Ph. D. and Janet Kira Lessin
Tantra means weaving. Tantra means weaving all the levels of your
awareness, called chakras, within you and between you and those you
love. Think of chakras with your body parts––the bottom of your torso,
genitals, belly, heart, throat, brain and neocortex, parts of you aware of
your security, sexuality, power, love, talk, clarity and spiritual
connection. In tantra, you activate your chakras and merge energy from
them with your lovers''. You and your lover together join the ocean of
consciousness. Your first chakra relates to your perineum, your
needs to belong, feel safe, secure and healthy, grounded in your material
and emotional existence. The tantric weaving of your base chakra and your
lover's means you help your love feel secure emotionally and financially.
You encourage wellness as you eat, exercise and stretch together. Massage
and touch each other all over.
The second chakra relates to
your sexuality and reproductive organs,your needs to feel sexual and
sensual. In healing sessions involving this chakra, you release emotions
and reprogram put-down attitudes. Women respond to vaginal strokes
and ejaculate copious, alkaline fluid, amrita. Men learn how to pull up
energy instead of ejaculating, to last longer in lovemaking and to orgasm
in new ways. For your third chakra, related to your belly, All-Chakra
Tantra teaches you to take what's yours, assert yourself appropriately.
Empower each other. You explore power chakra dynamics with your lover-
-how you bond (sometimes sweetly, sometimes sourly) into parental-child
roles. Ram meditations help you return to sweet and centered interaction.
The meditations of the forth chakra, associate with your heart, guide you
to love, cherish, support, heal and encourage yourself and your lover. You
communicate feelings, cultivate sweetness, romance each other. You develop
dyadic consciousness, where you identify at the same time with your
beloved's consciousness and your own as parts of a greater awareness, a
two-person awareness greater than the sum of your separate identities.
Fifth chakra throat: expression. Hear each of your inner voices (subselves)
tell you what they want and need. They say how they aid you, your beloved
and humanity. Choose what, when and how to express (or not express) your
inner voices to other people. Honor your beloved's many voices too. Speak
authentically, kindly and effectively to each other. In one throat-chakra
exercise, you sanctifyu sex––speak romantically of sacred sexual
organs and acts.
Chakra 6, Brain: vision, intuition, intellect: Receive, share and expand
visions for yourselves, each other, others you love, your community and
world. As beloveds, you intuit each others thoughts and feelings, as well
as those of your children, parents, friends and others. Access the
messages of dream, past life, fantasy, archetype and hero-tale. For
the final charka, your crown, the tantric meditations we like invoke
awareness of your unity with everyone and everything. Tantra helps you
rise to broader perspectives of your crown chakra, yet stay aware of the
wisdom of chakras 1-6. Encompass more than Thinker, Pleaser or other
subselves. Expand your awareness to more than your body. Expand your
perspective to even more than awareness of you and
your darling, more than the awareness you share with each other and with
humans, with life itself, or even with the Earth. Feel your oneness with
everyone and everything everywhere at all-times. Experience unity,
the seamless web of consciousness linking the manifest universe. Merge
with the latent--unforrned but constantly arising-––reality of the
metacosmic void. Identify with divine play that can manifest all forms.
