The ability to transmute your sexual energy is one of the most valuable things you could ever learn to do. And here’s some good news…
You’ve been transmuting different kinds of “energy” your entire life.
Transmuting sexual energy is similar, but because we don’t talk about it as a society, it feels more complex than it actually is.
My goals with this article are to:
- Give you a practical understanding of the concept
- Show you how to begin applying it in your life
- Show you resources to go deeper if you want
Let’s start with an example…
Think back to a time in your life when you were excited to do a thing, but for whatever reason, you had to do something else. You had to make a decision to do something with your excitement other than follow it through…
A common shared experience of this happens in childhood.
Imagine a time you wanted to go out and play with your friends, but you couldn’t because you had homework to do. You weren’t allowed to play with your friends until you finished your homework (or chores). In that moment of excitement, you had a decision to make.
You could get mad or sad and shut down… OR you could harness that excitement and use it to help you power through your homework (or chore), so you could go out and play with your friends.
This is a simple example of energetic transmutation.
Energy (your potential to do work) is transferable… and transmutation is the intentional shifting of one form of energy into another.
Whenever you’ve used discipline and intention to do something important (instead of falling prey to the urge for instant gratification), you’ve transmuted your energy.
Sexual energy transmutation works similarly. (With a few major differences).
For now, let’s agree on a working definition…
What is Sexual Energy?
You know that feeling you get when you feel like you want to f*ck or “get off?” When you feel that, there’s a different kind of sensation happening in your body. There’s a “charge” so to speak. We can call that charge “energy.”
This charge is often felt in your genitals, and it’s a different kind of charge than the excitement you felt when you wanted to play with your friends.
Some people say that all energy is sexual, but for the sake of this article, we’ll label sexual energy as the charge you feel when you get aroused.
Sexual Energy Transmutation
This is the act of harnessing your arousal, diverting it and directing it towards anything you like.
This act is so powerful and important that an entire chapter of the book “Think and Grow Rich” was devoted to it (this book is one of the most popular entrepreneur books of all time – check it out).
So how do you transmute your sexual energy?
Let’s look at another common experience for us men: porn.
What happens to your body when you get the spontaneous desire to look at porn? In that moment in your body there is a stimulation… a charge… an electricity and a desire. Whatever you want to call it, there is something in your body that wasn’t there before.
What you do with that energy is your choice. You could follow that energy and watch porn (which would most likely lead to masturbation and the loss of your energy), or your could harness that charge, divert/transmute it and put it into anything you want.
The very second you get the urge to look at porn and feel that charge in your body, instead of opening your laptop, you could immediately drop down and do 30 pushups. Stand up again and notice how you feel.
It can be that simple.
You will almost certainly feel a fully embodied charge, and your desire to look at porn will be gone, or at least not be as strong.
Physical exercise is an excellent way (and the most practical) for men to integrate and transmute energy.
If I ever get the urge to watch porn, I immediately drop and do 30 pushups. If I still feel the urge, I’ll do 50 jumping jacks. If I still feel the urge, I’ll do 30 more pushups. Then… if after all that I still feel the urge, I’ll go on a 20-minute run. This has worked for me every, single, time. If you want to know more about how to stop watching porn, I’ll have an article about that up soon.
Let’s look at a sexual example.
Sexual Energy Transmutation and Ejaculation
Every time you ejaculate, you release some of your “energy.” This is true even from a purely reductionist perspective. Think about it… When you ejaculate, your erection goes away, and your arousal does too.
And, this isn’t a bad thing!
I practice semen retention AND I enjoy ejaculating from time to time. It can be good to let your energy go.
If you’re over the age of 18 and you’re ejaculating every day, you’re probably not living up to your full potential as a human.
Instead of letting your energy go through excess ejaculation, you could transmute it and use it to charge up your business, creative projects, relationship, friendships, and anything you want.
Having sex and not ejaculating is an incredible way to build your energy, you just have to make sure to integrate (transmute) this energy so you can actually use it (and avoid blue balls).
Sexual Qigong and Yoga are excellent tools you can use to transmute your sexual energy too.
