So I’ll be trialing 90 days of complete celibacy, as in complete non-sexual activity. My buddy Matt was really interested in trying it, and I thought, well, why not, I’ll try it too. I’m really curious to see what kind of effects this will have on my general energy and motivation. Apparently there is some connection to life energy/ prana. It’s all about channeling it. Sexual release depletes prana, and may just make you feel like a lifeless blob. There’s also a link between sex and dopamine receptors (the reward centre of the brain) which means we associate sex with happiness. And so it takes 90 days to reset the receptors so you’re not a product of biological programming.

Potential energy boostage! Today marks day 5, but its too early to report any interesting effects.
Side note- I have however decided that I’m not really interested in sex for the sake of sex anyway. From what I’ve found, the people you engage with sexually, your aura/energy starts to merge and I usually feel really odd if it even progresses to that stage. I didn’t feel liberated by it at all, it just feels kind of lifeless, like somethings missing. It’s not that it was bad, and it’s not that its a reflection of the person. I just think that it’s much more liberating for the soul as well as body, to merge with someone in a union of love. Love is a progression for both individuals, and everyone else you come in contact with. I’ve realized this, and it just feels right.
