Affirmations are messages you are sending to your subconscious.
Mirror Masturbation Practice: A Ceremony
We want to begin and end this mirror masturbation practice in a ceremony. To start with, you will need to find yourself a space that feels safe and where you will not be disturbed. Make that space feel luxurious by bringing in candles, flowers, or any items you love into the room.
In the tantric world, genitals were celebrated with gifts during ceremonies. You can honour your genitals by buying them a gift or finding an object on the beach that represents your genitals, for example. When you find a gift, acknowledge it is for your sacred genitalia space.
The ceremony can start when you have put your favourite sensual playlist on, lit the candles, brought your gift, and are sitting in front of a mirror.
Begin to take off your clothes in front of the mirror. As you do so, repeat affirmations out loud to yourself. Focus on areas of the body that you love. If you love your shoulders, be with them: take time to look at each one of them, touch them, and thank them both for allowing you to hug your loved ones, move your arms and anything else you would like to thank them for. How beautiful to thank body parts for things we might take for granted! Sit for a short moment with all your body parts: you can either start with the areas you love the most, working your way to those needing more acknowledgement, or start from the feet up. Thank them, through touch and awareness, for everything that they do.
