Sexual Transmutation: Using Visualization and Emotional Control to Achieve Milestones Beyond Believing

“Holding onto anger is like grabbing an ember with the intention of throwing it at another person; you are the one that burns.” -Buddha

Emotional Transmutation is possibly the most powerful force of change or motivation that one can consciously control. In a nutshell, emotional or sexual transmutation is the conversion of latent or dominant emotional/sexual energy into productive energies useful for personal growth, goal achievement, personal change, or other purposes.

Think about it, what impulses drive and shape a hugely profitable fashion industry? What thoughts have been raised about a pillar of the massive pornographic industry? What wishes help you stay fit, look your best, or drink a low-fat latte instead of a regular one?

the power of desire

When you are attracted to a member of the opposite sex, what happens? Something in your brain is activated; It’s something you can’t explain. It borders on obsession, depends on lust, and longs for the adventure of the chase. Love may be a factor, but the central human response to these initial interactions is simple: pure desire.

From time to time love gets in the way and many times heartbreak can be a factor in achieving the wish. Fortunately, angst and sexual desire are the two most well-known motivating factors besides self-preservation.

Human beings will go through many phases of development, but one primary development factor evident at all stages is the drive to procreate, connect, give life to someone or something that will surpass our own legacy.

Intense feelings of longing or need can also accompany desire in its non-sexual capacity. Just think about the last time you saw something that you wanted so much that it became a necessity. If you continued to think about this object, person, or substance, that need would begin to transform into a strong, burning desire.

Whenever an experience, idea, or substance engages us and moves us toward this “feel good” need, we tend to gravitate toward it. We tend to want it. We tend to skirt all odds just to get it.

So how can we learn to consciously channel our desires for things less exciting than sex, drugs, and rock and roll? How can we assimilate this kind of motivation into tasks like living our dreams or actively pursuing our wildest fantasies?

For many of us, simply funneling a little extra juice into the workplace would go a long way.

the power of passion

Passion is easily confused with desire. In fact, the difference between the two is more or less a simple application of logic. Where they differ lies in the fact that the passion pertains to something that is understood as possession. In order to have a “passion” for something, you must first obtain it or have a good working knowledge of it.

Passion is most closely related to the emotional response triggered by desire (lust) and can extend the psychological imprint of desire.

The reason for this is that passion is an emotional or chemical release of the brain in response to ego-driven and primarily intellectual causes of desire. If you desire something so deeply that it triggers an emotion, passion will release feelings similar or equivalent to love to act as an emotional booster.

The brain uses this “feel good” chemical response to categorize the pattern as desirable and a new neural imprint is then stored in our subconscious.

Any repetitive thought or action infused with emotion is likely to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Because you are aware of your thoughts, actions, intentions, and the role they play in your success or failure, you can begin to use visualization to complete the triangle. Are you ready to hit the triple play?

Using visualization, the final step

Visualization is the activity of mentally altering your thought process in order to “escape” from reality. Visualization is an integral part of many meditative practices, success workshops, and training strategies. Psychologists use visualization to help their patients. Prayer is also a form of visualization. If you’ve ever daydreamed, you’ve practiced visualization.

To do this activity, you will need a colorful photo of something that has some emotional significance. You can use a photo of your house, your new car, your spouse, or a vacation spot you have visited or would like to visit.

For the best effect, the photo should contain vibrant colors.

Find a quiet and comfortable place, either sitting or lying down. Take care to remove any tight-fitting clothing or objects that may disrupt your experience, such as a wallet in your back pocket. If you are sitting, you should sit upright with your feet touching the floor. If you are lying down, lie on your back with your legs comfortably straight.

Now, look at the photo for a few moments, concentrating on the details, the colors and the environment. After focusing the photo for a few moments, close your eyes. As her eyes adjust to the dark and her surroundings fade, she begins to recall the photograph. Do you feel a breeze? Is there any smell? Maybe there is a garden nearby? Can you feel the sun on your skin? If the photo was of a person, interact with them, hug them, live in the moment.

Use your imagination to get into the photo and the environment to the best of your ability. This is a right-brain function, so some may find it easier than others. Don’t worry, just practice and take your time.

The key here is learning to trick your mind into believing its own illusion. When you are able to clearly visualize something you want, and you want it so badly that emotions and passion run parallel, you are ready to begin actively reprogramming your brain using visualization, passion, and desire.

Remember, practice makes perfect.
