The Three Treasures (Taoism) ~ Twin Flame Sacred Sexual Alchemy

Wisdom that has been covered up can easily be regained and embodied through learning, and practice of techniques, perfected by the masters around 5,000 years ago.

The Three Treasures

Taoist medical theory, there are three things that are essential to sustaining human life: Jing, Qi, and Shen. They are called the “Three Treasures,” and each one contributes to the overall health and wellbeing of the body.

Some Taoist sects during the Han dynasty performed sexual intercourse as a spiritual practice, called "Héqì" (合氣], "Joining Energy"). The first sexual texts that survive today are those found at the Mawangdui and were wrote on Silk.

The basis of all Taoist thinking is that qi (氣) is part of everything in existence. Qi is related to another energetic substance contained in the human body known as jing (精), and once all this has been expended the body dies. Jing can be lost in many ways, but most notably through the loss of body fluids. Taoists may use practices to stimulate/increase and conserve their bodily fluids to great extents. The fluid believed to contain the most Jing is semen. Therefore, Taoists believe in decreasing the frequency of, or totally avoiding, ejaculation in order to conserve life essence.

But this does not mean they do not have sex... Taoists can and do practice sexual activity and consider it very sacred. These practices are also known as "Joining Energy" or "The Joining of the Essences". Practitioners believe that by performing ancient sexual arts, one can stay in good health, and attain longevity or even contribute to spiritual advancement.

The concept of Yin and Yang is important in Taoism, and consequently also holds special importance in sex. Yang usually referred to the male sex, whereas Yin could refer to the female sex. Man and Woman were the equivalent of heaven and earth, but became disconnected. This is the separation of The Twins. Therefore, while heaven and earth are eternal, man and woman suffer a premature death. Every interaction between Yin and Yang had significance. Because of this significance, every position and action in lovemaking had importance. Taoist texts described a large number of special sexual positions that served to cure or prevent illness.

Another important concept of "The Joining of the Essences" was that the union of a man and a woman would result in the creation of jing (精), a type of sexual energy.

For Taoists, sex was not just about pleasing the man. The woman also had to be stimulated and pleased in order to benefit from the act of sex. Su Nu, female adviser to the "Yellow Emperor" Huang Ti, noted 10 important indications of female satisfaction. If sex were performed in this manner, the woman would create more jing, and the man could more easily absorb the jing to increase his own qi. According to Jolan Chang, in early Chinese history women played a significant role in the tao of loving, and that the degeneration into subordinate roles came much later in Chinese history. Women were also given a prominent place in the Ishinpō, with the tutor being a woman. One of the reasons women had a great deal of strength in the act of sex was that they walked away undiminished from the act.

The woman had the power to bring forth life, and did not have to worry about ejaculation or refractory period, which is about 48 hours for the man to reconnect with source energy, after ejaculating.

This quote from Lao Tze from the Tao Teh Ching reflects the Life force of the Woman: "The Spirit of the Valley is inexhaustible... Draw on it as you will, it never runs dry"

Women were also considered to be a means for men to extend men's lives. Many of the ancient texts were dedicated explanation of how a man could use sex to extend his own life. But, his life was extended only through the absorption of the woman's vital energies (jing and qi), and by “Not” releasing his own energy.

This ancient technique of Jing and Qi combined with the positive “Shen”, is the Balance of the Triad of our existence.

The Shen

The Shen is responsible for consciousness, cognition, emotional life and our “presence”. The Shen is responsible for things like thinking, planning, and feeling. It is considered a yang entity that is rooted in a yin substance: the blood. When we focus our Thoughts during sexual interaction, on Love, Gratitude, and Giving, we Release the negative emotions of desire, lust, and greed. We must let go of all of the lower vibrational emotions that is connected to sex. Once we are able to focus only on the thoughts and feelings of Love based emotions, we create the Purification and Wholeness of the sacred union.

Creating the Triad or Pyramid Of the Three, creates the divine light within and without of our physical form. This is becoming the Light, in the true alchemical since, or the combining of the Three Treasures.

We Love you all, and we are truly honored to share our knowledge and experiences with you.
