A Lesson In Desensitisation
Violence, pornography, social media - it is so easy in this era of technology for humans to become somewhat desensitised to this imagery and information. Pornography especially is often not a realistic representation of intimacy and relationships.
Teenagers can be particularly vulnerable when it comes to these seeds of perception and reality being planted in their minds early on in life and my client's Higher Self wanted to expand on this subject in her hypnosis session, especially when it comes to having these important conversations with our children.
This is what the Higher Self had to say below:
J: What is the spiritual lesson we humans should be learning from pornography in general here on earth? What is it meant to be teaching us all?
HS: There are multiple lessons to be learnt from pornography. Part of the lesson is to look at our own bodies and our relationship with the concept of shame and where we might be carrying shame in our bodies and how we can free ourselves of that experience so that we aren’t shocked by the human anatomy.
Part of it is also an opportunity to release ourselves from transactional relationships and from a sense that relationships are a thing where something has to almost be paid in a way before something else is given.
Not all energy exchanges are transactional energy exchanges, some are unconditional on the higher vibrations and occur through people’s receptivity and initiative in love. Pornography is expression of transactional relationships and exploitation of people’s shame. The less shame we carry and the more joyous we are in expressing our initiative and our receptivity in love the less important pornography becomes. Teaching this to our children is a challenge.
J: Why do some people become so involved in pornography or in some cases even addicted to that world?
HS: Some people are deeply sexual and want to express themselves sexually and frequently. They genuinely enjoy sharing that and allowing other people to see that but those people do not generally disappear into the world of pornography, they can be found in more sexually conscious communities and sexually conscious contexts. Whereas “pornography” is an exploitation of people’s shame about sexuality in the same way that junk food is an exploitation of people’s shame about eating. Violence in pornography is an extension of people’s desensitisation in the same way that the extremes of sugar, transfats and salts are a representation of the desensitiation to food. The more profoundly you connect with your kundalini energy the less likely you are to find pornography fulfilling.
J: What can we do to assist our children growing up in this world to help them through this desensitisation when it comes to things like pornography, extremes of food or social media and violence?
HS: We need to live in each and every moment with these elements and aspects of our lives we are grappling with every day and have the conversations. Help your child to connect with experiences of communities of teenagers who are more deeply involved in creative activities. It is a lesson to stay involved as a parent.
