“Aligning with yourself, then another and you both aligning yourselves together further in harmony will summon source energy in ways you couldn’t imagine.”
― Shalom Melchizedek,
The connection between spirituality and sexuality is an interesting topic. It has deep implications for one’s identity, the dynamics of relationships, and one’s understanding of the Creator.
God refers to the relationship between a husband and wife as a ‘covering.’ Meaning, they take care of each other’s needs and desires, which is another reason why most marriage either take place in a religious institution or is presided over by a religious authority.
This is not a coincidence nor is it happenstance that human beings choose to conduct marriage ceremonies under some sort of religious umbrella. It’s a partnership, which includes two people fulfilling their sexual desires with one another.
Sex is generally defined as an activity that has an outward sexual element to it. This could be anything from a kiss to intercourse. There is a connection between spirituality and sexuality.
Spirituality can be an underlying support, but it’s not the sole source of strength for sex. It’s important for us as humans to be in touch with our spiritual selves to stay in touch with our sexual selves.
The former provides meaning, hope, and purpose for the latter. This is one of the main reasons God has stated that sex and marriage should go together. In an Islamic tradition, Prophet Muhammad states, “Marriage completes half of your religion.”
“Your soul is your connection to the Divine. Sacred sex is an activity of joining souls in holy, celestial creation, expressing your appreciation for the gift of life, of sharing your body’s vitality with another.”
