Sexual Transmutation: How to Use It to Harness Your Sexual Energy

If you’ve ever heard of sexual transmutation, you might be wondering what it is. The good news is that it could work for you, too. 

what is Sexual Transmutation

The term sexual transmutation sounds a little confusing from the get-go. Is it some form of mechanics? Is it something to do with gender? The truth is, it’s none of the above and actually more to do with putting your sexual energy into something else entirely. 

Of course, nobody wants to have so much pent up sexual energy that they’re about to burst, but allowing it to build to a powerful yet not overwhelming level could give you enough energy to pour into a creative project that will bring you major gains. If you’re keen to learn more about sexual transmutation, including exactly what it is, how you can do it, and the theory behind it, read on!

What is sexual transmutation?

The simplest definition of sexual transmutation is the art of converting sexual energy into another form of energy that can help some part of your life.

Let’s break it down. When you have a certain amount of sexual energy building up, it can be difficult to think straight. It can be a hindrance to productivity and makes it hard to really get much done without mistakes. However, when you harness the power of that sexual energy and pour it into something else, the results might just surprise you. 

The word ‘transmutation’ basically means that you’re taking one type of energy and turning it into something else. You’re taking sexual energy and turning it into creative energy, as one example. 

A person who is using sexual transmutation will let their sexual energy build up; not to the breaking point, but to the point where they feel they’re reaching it. They purposely don’t indulge in any sexual activity because doing so would go against the whole idea. Then, when they reach the right particular point, they pour all of that into something that is constructive.

A little later, I’ll talk about how sexual transmutation is actually done, but, for now, you just need to understand what it is. 

So, how does sexual transmutation help us? Many people use sexual transmutation to achieve better sporting or athletic results, others use it for creative reasons, such as painting, writing, or dancing. It really comes down to what you want to pour the energy into. But many people believe that it really gives you an edge. Of course, you could also argue that sexual transmutation helps you to appreciate sex when it does happen!

Effects of sexual transmutation

Sexual energy can be defined as creative energy, and it’s building up inside of you all the time. Of course, many people allow it to be released through physical sex, while others let it build up. You can encourage this build by meditation or exercise, as two main options.

When you’re feeling a little aroused shall we say, rather than using that energy and having sex, try focusing your mind on something else, i.e., a problem you need to fix. I mentioned at the start that when you’re feeling full of sexual energy, it can be hard to think straight. But when you learn how to use sexual transmutation, you’ll find it easier to channel that energy into something productive, rather than allowing it to derail your day and your mind. 

Using sexual transmutation in the right way can make it easier for you to solve problems, to have healthy and fulfilling relationships, to boost your performance at work or in a sporting situation, the list goes on.

How to transmute sexual energy into some other form of energy

It can be really hard to pinpoint what sexual transmutation is clearly. It’s all very well and good saying ‘it’s turning sexual energy into something else’, but it doesn’t define it all that clearly. It’s one of those things that you should experience yourself or understand deeply, to really know what it’s about. 

To help shed a bit more light, let’s look at how sexual transmutation is actually done.

1. Become aware of yourself

The first step in sexual transmutation is to be totally in tune with your inner self and aware of how you’re feeling in any given moment. Using mindfulness practices can be very useful. They keep you in the present moment and stop you from thinking back to the past or jumping forwards to the future.

You need to be totally aware of your own sexual energy, so that you know when it’s building up. How does that feel to you? Well, it varies from person to person. This is why self-awareness is so important. You have to know what it feels like for you as a unique and individual person. 

The easiest way to start learning how this really feels it to note when you’re feeling a little horny. It really can be that simple. Rather than having sex or masturbating to release that tension and feel good for a second, do something else.

Go for a run, do some gardening, clear out the cupboards, basically do something that requires energy and focus. By doing that, you’re harnessing the power of your sexual energy and pouring it into something else, while allowing it to build at the same time. [Read: How to find yourself when you feel like you’ve lost your way]

2. Become aware of chakras

Many people who learn how to use sexual transmutation use meditation, and they focus on specific chakras. These are energy centers within the body. The best chakra to use for sexual energy is the sacral chakra, which is located a small distance above the pubic bone.

You could also use the heart center instead and direct all of your energy throughout your body. The best way to learn how to use chakras is to visualize them within your body. Know where they are and then learn the colors. The sacral chakra is often labeled as orange. [Read: A step-by-step guide to chakras and tantric sex]

When meditating, visualize the sacral chakra and see it as full of sexual energy. Then, visualize this flowing around your body. Many people also use chanting or movement during their meditations, but this is an entirely personal deal.

Some people don’t even use meditation, but if you want to really get into the crux of sexual transmutation, meditation will help you go that extra distance towards success. The idea is that you’re harnessing the power of your sexual energy. 

3. Once you’ve harnessed, it’s time to release

Normally, you would release sexual energy via actual sex. In this case, you’re going to pour it into something else. The most effective way is by pouring your energy into something artistic or creative. That is because sexual energy is so akin to creative energy. 

Moving your energy from one place to another is done with practice. Don’t worry if it doesn’t quite work the first time. Practice as much as you can and focus your mind. If you don’t want to pour your energy into something creative or that avenue isn’t working for you, go for something athletic.

A workout in the gym, a swim, a run, these are all ways you can channel and move sexual energy from one place to another and could give you some fantastic results. If you want a new personal best time, this is the way to go!

Does all of this mean you can’t have sex at all?

This is a common question and the answer is no! Sexual transmutation doesn’t mean that you become celibate and use your energy in other areas. It means you’re allowing that energy to build and release it in other ways, whenever the time is right. That doesn’t mean you can never release sexual energy in the regular way, i.e., by having sex or masturbating. If you want to do so, go for it!

However, it’s true that the more you allow that energy to build, the more effective it will be for whatever endeavor you’re pouring it into.

Sexual transmutation might be a confusing subject when you read about it. But in practice, it’s actually quite simple. Moving sexual energy from one place to another really just comes down to avoiding the usual release and pouring it elsewhere. If you want to experience the results, why not try it for yourself?
