To add uniqueness to your tantric massage session you can incorporate complementary healing modalities into it. One of such modalities is crystal healing. Crystal healing goes extremely well with tantric massage, as both work on the energy level. Tantra mostly utilizes sexual energy to bring transformation and change, while crystals can add some higher frequency vibrations.
Black Tibetan quartz is usually found double terminated, and they had inclusions of anthracite which is actually considered to be a coal. So they have these very small inclusions, and it’s thought that Tibetan quartz can actually raise your spiritual vibration or raise your consciousness to a plane where you’re able to access information from the Akashic records and access information from your ancestors. Because of this unique property, Tibetan quarts is used in certain tantra rituals.
So again they’re great for communicating with different guides. They’re also good for keeping you grounded while doing spiritual work like astral projection or astral travel, keeping that ethereal cord connected to your physical body so that you can feel free to do these things in the astral plane while staying grounded and protected.
So the other thing that they’re often used for is creating bridges between two chakras. So you’ll actually find that you can enhance the energy at a particular chakra by placing a stone near it, and you can direct that energy to a different part of your body. So, for instance, if I had overactive energy at one chakra and under- active energy at another, I may place a Tibetan quartz in between to move the energy from one to the other to balance that energy out.
This way quartz crystals can help you in your tantric practices.
Tantra is all about working with energy. Energy, like water, like any other medium that we have, has properties of flow. When we’re looking for balance in the system, we’re looking for a consistent and easy, relaxed flow. Imagine a stream in nature, stream of water flowing into a river. If the stream is constricted, in certain points if the water can’t flow easily then you get perturbation, noise, you get ripples and pools of water gathering. If the stream is evenly balanced, the water can flow with the same speed going all the way down the stream until it hits the river.
The energy that we’re most concerned about for our spiritual development is the energy around our being. It’s the energy of our emotions, it’s the energy of our physical body, and it’s the energy of our spirit. If we’re looking for balance in our life, in our spiritual development and especially in our tantric practice, what we’re going to find is that we actually come into a place where our life flows easily, where our health is vibrant, and we have plenty of stamina and energy to do whatever physical work we wish to during the day.
Just like in electronics, if you think of resistance to the flow of electricity, a similar thing happens with energy system with our chakras. If you can imagine there’s high resistance in one chakra, the flow of energy through our whole energy body is restricted at that place. If we want to achieve balance then through our own observation of ourselves, our knowledge and the feedback from the truly loving friends who give honest feedback to us will tell us where we are out of balance.
It can be for many people a lifelong journey of coming into a higher state of balance. You need to practice tantra regularly to make this happen. Often it can be very subtle. We can see major blocks, for example, in our emotions in our emotions based on programming from our parents, from a family situation. We can work on that for maybe many years through different therapies and self understanding and learning.
But at a most subtle level, it’s very hard for the mind to truly see the mind. Sometimes, even seasoned tantra adepts can fail at this. So if we wish to come back into a higher state of balance, we need to look at the more perfect mirror which is actually our body. If we observe our body, it functions in how strong we are in different ways where we have recurrent health problems where the health problems arise. Then we get really important clues as to how we can balance our energy further.
It is this journey through refinements, through clarification that we achieve energy balance. When we achieve that balance, we’re in a place of peace and harmony. You can even start experiencing bliss in your meditations and feel other magical things described in tantric writings.
And ironically, we’re actually ready to move on out of our life. Our perfection is not something that we maintain and hold forever. It’s an illusion to try and grasp for perfection. But while we’re on our journey towards perfection, that is where the lessons come and that is where joy and love flow through our energy systems, through our heart and then to the people around us and back to ourselves.
