How do I fix a marriage after cheating??
My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

Sexual energy is an expression of the divine within each of us. That's one reason a mindful approach to sacred sexuality is so important.
In many religious traditions, sexuality is feared. We are given strict rules around what kind of sex is okay and when and with whom. We are taught that sexual energy is dangerous and must be carefully contained. What if the very reason religion and sex have a tangled relationship is that sexual energy is an expression of the divine? What if erotic joy is God manifesting in our very bodies, in our connection with ourselves and each other?
Sex represents union between Shiva and Shakti, God and Goddess, the divine masculine and feminine energy. This union brings together matter and consciousness, creating the universe and creating us. Sexual desire is the drive that brought these two energies together at the beginning of time, making our universe possible—which is also, of course, biologically true. Sex is, literally, the engine of our creation.
This energy doesn’t have to express itself in the physical act of sex, either. It can show up any time we are engaging with a passion, when we are accessing our creativity, when we are allowing ourselves to fully feel our deepest emotions. The erotic is an energy that gives us power. When we are connected to our erotic selves, we are connected to our deepest emotions and our most authentic selves. In a culture that cuts us off from this energy, we are disempowered, not fully alive, unable to tap into our creative potential or what we truly want.
“The erotic is a measure between our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings. It is an internal sense of satisfaction to which, once we have experienced it, we know we can aspire. For having experienced the fullness of this depth of feeling and recognizing its power, in honor and self-respect we can require no less of ourselves."
Erotic energy is powerful because it teaches us about our potential. When we have experiences of being fully connected to our bodies, our emotions, and our sense of power, we can no longer tolerate being disconnected. We can channel this energy into intimacy, certainly, but we can also channel it into our work, our creativity, our friendships, and the courage we need to move forward towards what we want.
Unfortunately, the way our culture generally treats sexuality distorts this empowering, creative energy.
I has been made into the confused, the trivial, the psychotic, and plasticized sensation. For this reason, we have turned away from the exploration and consideration of the erotic as a source of power and information, confusing it with the pornographic. But pornography is a direct denial of the power of the erotic, for it represents the suppression of true feeling. Pornography emphasizes sensation without feeling.”
Being in an act of sex isn’t the same thing as being connected to our sacred sexuality. The wrong kind of sex can actually suppress that powerful but tender aspect of ourselves. When we have sex to perform, to please, or to placate, we are not honoring the divine aspects of our sexuality. When we forget to experience pleasure, to follow our sensual energy deeper into our physical and emotional selves, we are not experiencing our sexuality as powerful but merely pornographic. We are doing a disservice to the divine within ourselves.
It can be difficult to see our sexual selves as divine when we have to wade through the cultural messaging about sex being sinful or dangerous, not to mention the fears and insecurities we have about our bodies not measuring up to the pornographic standard we’ve come to take as normal. We hold ourselves outside of the spiritual potential of sexual connection because we don’t think we’re good enough. We don’t know how to allow the flow of erotic energy to meet us alongside our deepest, most painful emotions.
Erotic energy is powerful because it’s not intellectual. It’s physical and emotional, and in the right context, it can take us into a state that is almost trance like. For some of us, this is as close as we can get on this mortal plane to touching the divine. When we allow our sexual energy to give us the courage to follow our honest emotions and desires, we may discover that the divine was within us all along.
