Journey to sacred sexuality:  How I discovered my sacred sensual self

Corset Magazine March 4, 2014

My experience with sacred sex is a long windy sensual road, shaped much like a serpent/snake.  This is completely apropos, when you consider the Kundalini serpent energy that lies at the bottom of our root chakra, waiting to be unleashed, tapped into, ignited and released!

I have always been a very sensual woman.  It’s just the way I was built.  For years I thought there was something wrong with me because my body would respond in ways that others around me would not.  I would, for instance, be with a lover and while we were together, get so turned on from them touching me lightly, and looking into my eyes, that I would have experiences of orgasm as though they were making love to me.  Just from the shear sensation of our intimate connection, my body and spirit would soar with extreme ecstasy.  Often my lover(s) would stop what they were doing and just watch me.  They would watch my body experience rolling waves of desire, thrashing and writhing with intense, passion and deep breath moans from the depths of my belly.  I would feel my entire body tingle intensely and feel the sensations traveling up, through my cells, to my third eye where the energy would linger and dance.  I felt like I was on another plane of existence.  It wouldn’t be until years later that I would discover what was happening to me has been called a Kundalini awakening/rising.

I began to call my experiences, my whole body orgasms, or spiritual orgasms because, somehow, my whole body and soul was experiencing these sensations, not just my genitals.  It was on a much deeper, soul level.  I never was able to explain this to people back in my 20’s because I did not understand it myself.  Lovers who experienced this with me would just look at me and say, “But I didn’t even do anything.” And I would beg to differ.  Although I realize now that the way I responded was definitely my experience, but the energy of the other person, and our intimate connection is what also ignited me, lifted me up and made me fly and delight in sharing myself and my experience with them! Over the years I would learn that I would have similar orgasmic sensations while having completely non-sexual/spiritual experiences. I would experience these same spiritual orgasms when I received my reiki attunements.


I am now a student of Tantra.  In my late 30’s I discovered the practice of sacred sexuality and Tantra.  I began to read books on Tantra and other sacred sexuality practices and realized that what I was experiencing was not unique to me.  I found a language that explained what was happening to my body.  This was a relief to know that others have experienced this too, and that there is an entire spiritual/physical practice surrounding it!  I knew that I needed to learn from those who could teach me and help me understand myself better in this embodied, erotic way.  I began to seek out Tantra workshops so that I could experience it, and experiment with others who were also seeking to understand it, embrace it and dive into discovering themselves! 

I went to a few different workshops and really found my home with the Body Electric School.  As soon as I took my first class, “Celebrating the Body Erotic For Women”, I knew I was home.  I could be my whole, erotic, beautiful, sensual, very vocal, loud writhing self.  There, I discovered even more about myself, and my erotic nature and the healing power of intimacy and pleasure.  The classes used Tantric, Taoist and other sacred sexuality principles to help us explore our connection with our own bodies, with others and with the world. 

Because I am already a massage therapist, reiki practitioner, spiritual life coach, social worker and shaman priestess, I was already on this healing path, and I discovered that sacred sexuality was the natural direction my spiritual and professional path was always meant to take me.  I am a sacred intimate, which, to me, is a co-creator of sensual experiences, a sacred sexual doula, who helps others tap into the deeper more intimate parts of themselves, by rediscovering their bodies, their spiritual self, their sexual self, and their deeper erotic needs and desires.  I am a midwife to the experience of sexual healing, as people are able to release their sexual wounds and re-birth themselves into their full sensual and sexual erotic power! I am finally home!

 My name is Maisha Najuma Aza, and I am a sacred sexual healer.  Through intimate workshops, classes, one-on-one sessions, couples sessions, small group sessions and even Skype sessions, I can facilitate the opening of the door to your erotic self-discovery and sacred sexual healing.  Are you ready?
