Spirituality, Sexuality and Sensuality

You know, having been married most of my life, entering the 21st century dating scene four years ago when I became single was daunting to say the least. Traditional dating that I grew up with, going out with someone who I’d pre-qualified as marriage material to assess their suitability, has apparently become “so last century.” Or perhaps that’s just the case for women “of a certain age,” many of whom have no interest in getting married again, anyway.  Maybe modern dating is still centered around mate selection for the twentysomethings and thirtysomethings! 

In any case, you could say that “clueless” pretty much summed up my dating acumen!

The Universe always provides what I need as I need it, so I didn’t stay clueless for long. Sex and the Seasoned Woman: Pursuing the Passionate Life, by Gail Sheehy quickly found its way to me. This was the beginning of opening my mind to viewing sex outside the framework of church-dictated values.

Jennifer Recommends

Aphrodite’s Daughter, Jalaja Bonheim

Healing centuries of repression and shame, this book supports the reader in rediscovering the innocence and beauty of sexual pleasure. Aphrodite’s Daughter sends a strong message that it is time to honor sex as a sacred, soul-making force.

Soulful Sex: Opening Your Heart, Body & Spirit to Lifelong Passion, Dr. Victoria Lee

Becoming conscious about our sexuality is as useful to our spiritual journey as meditation, journaling or any other spiritual practice. The author offers practical guidance for breaking through barriers to deepened communion and true sexual ecstasy.  Offering a soulful approach to sexual problems and inhibitions, this book opens the door to sex as it was always meant to be - a highly connective experience involving the mind, body, and soul.


Invitation to Practice Community Living

I am ready to invite someone to share my home with me who has an interest in exploring community living. The purpose is to hone my communication and negotiation skills and experience the benefits, as well as the challenges, that I might encounter if I lived in a larger community . . . sort of learning to crawl before attempting to walk.

About Jennifer

I am a Pioneering Soul who “woke up” in 1989 to the reality that exists beyond the ability of the five senses to detect, and the rational mind to comprehend. I was “told” that humanity is in the midst of a huge evolutionary leap and that my purpose was to expand my consciousness as far and as fast as I could in this lifetime and show others how to do the same.

At the end of 2009 I was given a vision of what is possible for humanity right now — to grow out of 3rd dimensional reality (the realm of the five senses) much as a teenager grows out of childhood and into young adulthood. The “teenage” years of spiritual growth are about developing mastery of 4th dimensional reality (the realm of emotions) by learning to sense the subtle energies within the physical body, and the subtle energies that are the very fabric of the Universe we inhabit.

It became clear that once we have mastered 4th dimensional reality, we are ready to become 5th dimensional beings who have fully integrated thought with feeling, and the material with the spiritual. We will have become what Barbara Marx Hubbard calls Universal Humans — knowing who we are, why we are here and living harmoniously with each other in Joy and without struggle.
