Ive been doing a bit of Reading of Raelian publications, and present some highlights from Raels book “SENSUAL MEDITATION” for your edification. The book presents 6 lessons in “sensual mediation” ™ each escalating above the previous lesson in levels of awareness and overcoming irrationally programmed self loathing and societally induced sexual repression. Rael recommends creating a special chamber for your sensual meditations first lesson.
Candlelight is suggested. The chamber should have images that you find stimulating, perhaps paintings that you are fond of, and perfumes that pleasantly stimulate your sense of smell.These are of your own choice. Classical music of your choice to stimulate your hearing and fire the brain patterns up is a necessity. To stimulate the sense of taste Rael suggests aniseed, something spicy that you are partial to.
So as to harmonize with the infinite Rael specifically recommends nude meditation, if not nude then, better still, a robe of silky flimsy material to titilate your body is a good idea. It is most necessary to be very aware of your body, as we will discover. Many of the initial techniques, involving oxygenation and the clearing of all external awareness, “centering”, are nothing new to anyone who has engaged in meditation before.
It is in the third lesson that things start to get… 'interesting'. In the third lesson Rael directs extreme awareness into the fingertips and exploration of our own body. Page 110 recommends something most of us likely haven’t tried:
… “discovering the taste of our own skin”…
… “by sucking our finger tips and then the skin of our own arm, we discover what we taste like. Our own unique flavour”….
This extends into sampling the taste of our own underarm odour, a pleasant thought, but Rael has only BEGUN to lead us upon our discovery of our own bodies as he explores the sense of smell:
Page 110: ..“Then, still with our eyes closed, we explore our own body smells”.
He suggests a shower the night before to remove grime, and then:
“allow the body, overnight, to produce the secretions responsible for our body smells”….
Enough to put some off the idea of venturing further I would think. But the journey is not over yet . Rael would have us overcome all implanted, irrational tabboos
Taught to us by mother and the church:
… “Then we once again caress our body with our hands, discovering every part of our physique as if for the first time”…
Rael recommends a mirror be employed, this is needed to:
… “ look at certain less accessible parts of our body as we caress them”…
…” particularly our sexual organs”….
And, as the culmination of exercise 3:
… “Our anus itself. which we can see using our mirror”…
As we inspect and caress it! Rael gushes effusively, describing it as:
… “ this fabulous toy….which expects only one thing. That we enjoy it”.
I might post highlights from lessons 4 5 and 6 if anyones interested.
