For simplicity's sake, I've divided spiritual sex into two levels: the first is conscious loving which is sexual energy that generates intense, loving feelings for the partner. The result is greater partner connection, reinforcing commitment in a long-term relationship through loving communion, enhancing the bond. The second level is spiritual union which is the ultimate expression of sexuality. Often one receives inspiration and illumination that can be translated into divine guidance or simply experienced as pure bliss. These transcendental sexual experiences produce a sense of merging with the source of energy and losing physical boundaries during orgasm.
Sex and Intimacy
It is often described as "being in the moment of boundless bliss. This level of spiritual sex may occur without a partner and even without any physical stimulation. Many of you intuitively know the link between spirituality and sexuality through direct experience. One woman, I'll call Carrie, related the following; "At the moment of orgasm I knew that I was in a great, golden light and I experienced myself as transparent, luminous energy.
I saw seven star-like, golden, swirling points that lined up in my body. I did not know about the chakras at the time but later I discovered that that's what I saw.

The idea that two people, who have loved each other for more than half a century, could transition from this life at the same time especially when one of them is perfectly healthy , is not a coincidence.

There are many of these stories. To me, they are the truest and most beautiful examples of intimacy, where two people really have become one. There is a wonderful scientific principle that demonstrates this idea perfectly. Automaker, Henry Ford, was looking to create a new method to document the measurements for the manufacture of auto parts in a way that was far more precise than anything available in the late 19th century.
These ceramic or metal measuring blocks are precision-ground to such a fine degree that there are absolutely no irregularities on their perfectly straight surfaces. Because of this, they can detect length differences as small as one ten-thousandth of an inch. To measure various lengths, the blocks cannot simply be placed one on top of the other. They have to be slid together.
When this happens, there is less than one molecule of atmosphere between their ultra-flat, perfectly smooth surfaces! They are two and yet one at the same time. Measurements with gauge blocks need to be made quickly because the atoms within them are now in critical proximity. That means in a very short period of time, they will coalesce into one single piece of metal or ceramic.
This is intimacy. This is what it means to grind off all our misunderstandings, misidentifications and misinterpretations, and coalesce with God by returning to our essence. If we are to achieve this kind of intimacy in our relationships and have less than a molecule of atmosphere between our spirits, we must be able to achieve that on our own first.
Because God is everywhere and in all things, you can choose to coalesce with God consciousness in many ways. We often lose ourselves in a beautiful walk in nature, during meditation, while dancing, or listening to music. As the ancient poet, Rumi said, it is in these moments that we remove all that is not loving about ourselves and converge with God, which is only love. The spiritual work we do on ourselves is the polish we place on the surface of our souls that will allow us to coalesce back into our loving essence, back into God and into the divinely satisfying intimate relationship with each other that we all crave.
Why do these amazing stories about couples like Buckminster Fuller and his wife, Anne, always seem like the exception rather than the rule when it comes to relationships? While writing this article, I was looking through a thesaurus for synonyms for the word intimacy. I found words like understanding, closeness, caring, affection, tenderness, and warmth.
Perhaps this lack of defining terms and misunderstanding explains why so many relationships fail.

- Intimacy with God.
Intimacy is an almost ethereal concept like God. But what does it really mean? Science has clearly shown that everything in existence, from you to a supernova light years away is made of exactly the same thing: Energy. It is God that directs this energy into becoming a planet or a person. God consciousness is recognizing, living within, and operating from the perspective that we are all one.
I mean that literally.

Eight Steps to Developing Intimacy
Defining and experiencing real intimacy begins with understanding God consciousness. Without this realization, the best we can achieve in a relationship is the temporary satiation of our physical needs and emotional deficiencies. Far too many people think intimacy is sexual intimacy.
Yes, deep levels of intimacy can be achieved during sex, but the act itself is completely unnecessary to experiencing intimacy. Likewise, there is a lot of meaningless sex going on in the world with zero spiritual substance underneath. Relationships fall apart not because of a lack of physical stimulation.
