Semen Retention & Ankhing Sexual Energy

3 years, 1 month ago

WHOA so I’ve been reading a lot about sacred sex practices and I’ve come to a general conclusion that discharging your semen is a huge loss of life force energy

It says "An ounce of semen is considered to be equal in value to sixty ounces of blood"

It also says the Eygyptians learned to redirect their sexual energy and recycle it by Ankhing it back around out their heart chakra around the body and back into your body so you don’t just lose it out your crown.

If this is true, (which is says so in many ancient texts) this changes the way we think about and how we have sex entirely.

Thoughts?

Here’s the base 2 websites I got this from if you are interested:

hey @John wow, i’ve actually been putting this into practice since the beginning of this year, and let me tell you, i went from being the most sickly kid in my house, from everyday allergies and prone to the flu, to being the only one in my house who’s not sick :D and i feel like this is just the beginning of my journey of the transmutation of sexual energy into the proper reenergizing of the body as a whole :) and who knows what might come next

Yeah, I’ve been doing it for quite some time as well, and I’ve been pushing a bunch of discussions about it here on HE. (Although most of the time people just got defensive and refused to listen.)

The egyptians are not the only ones to do this. There are a lot of taoist teachings about this, as well as spinoffs of buddhism that teach the same thing. The sacred Hindu teachins teach about this too. I’ve read about romans practicing this as well. The ancient norse seidr has a method for this too, the ancient bible had a chapter about this, called “the Gospel of Eve” and I’ve read that the native americans had techniques for this as well.

It’s been all over the world for ages, but usually kept secret by elite groups and “mystery schools.” Many of the world’s greatest men have practiced semen retention and jing circulation, and the most powerful men of today do it as well.

Not only is it energizing, it also feels fucking great and supercharges your brain. Words can’t explain the difference between before and after. It’s just fucking amazing.

I’m glad at least one more HEthen is wise enough to do this.

I was explaining this in the other masturbation thread but I knew an older gentleman who practiced this and hasn’t ejaculated in over 10 years. He follows the ancient taoism sexual practices and tantra so he says that we shouldn’t be ejaculating as much as modern day society does. He says it’s a life source loss, it diminishes your body greatly and a lot of people don’t understand how valuable sperm is.

This man is absolutely against abortion as well because he says the valuable sperm, which succeeded in it’s goal to create life, was completely wasted and not given a second thought. He would say “The woman is killing him softly by killing his sperm”…but then again the man probably wastes more sperm than piss due to masturbation so it wouldn’t make a difference today.

I’m very into all this, I never thought of it all this much but these threads have changed my perspective on everything to due with semen and I want to implement some of it.

@Dennis Nothing is harder than you make it. It takes time, consistency and patience. There’s NO instant gratification (except the huge benefits of not ejaculating as much.)

Don’t be afraid of effort. Don’t seek instant gratification, patience is a virtue and the key to all great results.

@ John-haha I guess just talking about it would be the best way. If not, why not just utilize your self control and decided not to ejaculate durning sex? Its not too much fun and can be hard (trust me) but like we all have said I think it’s worth it in the end, especially if you exercise or use your body a lot.

Hold up…is semen retention simply not ejaculating ever, or is there more to it than that?

And as Koala said, are there any negative side effects to this? Someone said on the “no porn” thread that NOT ejaculating leads to testicular cancer. IMO masturbation is lame, I’d hate to have to do it just to not get a disease.

I’m still pretty stuck in the belief that if nothing flows, it gets stagnant. You say the semen that is created and not used is just “re-absorbed”? I don’t think that the tubes are “absorbing” tubes…. I think they just pass urine and semen through them…

Where can I find more information about this?

What are some options of what to do with this extra energy I have from semen retention? I’ve read that it’s really bad (mentally) if you do not use this extra energy.

@everyone, Alright well it has a lot to do with your body’s natural vital energy (think Chi) which is a force or current that flows within the body and controls its ability to function and heal. The less you have accumulated the faster you lose that child-like energy and the faster you age. In eastern medicine people practice whats known as Chi Kung (Qigong) to strengthen and extend this energy in order to live a longer life and preserve this energy so that they may be able to function normally as they age, even as one reaches their 70’s and 80’s. There is also a substance called Ching (pronounced Jing) which is like chi but is the actually bodily material such as blood, spit and semen which also hold energy.
When you expel or lose these fluids, you also lose vitality and in turn you slowly degrade your body’s natural ability to heal, move without strain and preform natural processes. They also say that losing one onuce of semen is just like losing a pint of blood or more. So to not willing give up this energy and cultivate it (i.e. doing energy exercises) is to extend one’s life and energy, for now and for the future.
If any of you are interested do some research in techniques for qigong, tai chi, and Taoist Inner alchemy(more advanced qigong) or message me and I’ll provide you with info on the exercises i do and books to read.

@Koala, Oh and its not bad to not use it technically. You just have to know where to store it and how to use it once it is stored. But it’s really not a problem because if you are alive you are using this energy and if you do any physical activity then you use this energy. Check it out if you’re interested.

Is this the only thread on this topic? From what I have learned so far there seems to be some fairly educated answers here. There is so much more to this than people realize. I believe it is one of the greater secrets of mankind. There must be some private group somewhere that discuss all the pros and cons of this little known secret…. I hope to find it.

@dznutz, I agree. It really doesn’t seem like anyone wants to talk about anything really practical or beneficial like jing/energy circulation on this site though. It really is the secret to mind/body evolution. Most people will write it off though or think you are trying to brag if you bring it up.

There are other websites for that like Taobums.com, where you can get a lot of inciteful information about it from people with experience. It’s really a great site with a lot of brilliant minds. Check out the forums on there.

People don’t realize how ejaculation is a metaphor for the rest of their lives. The person who always wants to release sperm and release anxiety is weak minded. It’s an escapist mentality. That nervous energy can either be wasted on pointless thinking and superficial releases, or it can be cultivated up into the body to provide you with increased vitality and energy. The person who cultivates these energies is the one who can handle life’s stresses with ease.

Hey Mike… I went there taobums.com and got this… NOTICE: This domain name expired on 11/20/2012 and is pending renewal or deletion.

I appreciate your response though…. I’ve only been aware of this for about 2 months now… already have 2 authors who have been gracious enough to put into print much about it, Mantak Chia and Samael Aun Weor….. I want more info though… I want to know the greatest of all secrets this world has to offer…. I personally think this is one of the bigger ones…. only those that practice it will ever discover what lies beyond the practice… everyone else will just have to wonder at least in theory….

Thanks again….

@dznutz, http://thetaobums.com/. It’s working for me. The forums have a lot of great info. Mantak Chia is good. Yeah it is a huge secret. It turns your life upside down. You learn how to use nervous energy to your benefit instead of to your demise. Doesn’t sound too flashy, but the implications of that are more than most people realize.

Great info @mikeyw829, That’s what I was looking for…. You’re right about it turning my life upside down… just becoming aware of and practicing it for a few months I can feel huge differences…. I’ve been reading as many ancient texts and ancient secret books as I could get my hands on for the last 5 years and this seem to be one of those secrets that if you aren’t aware of the implications all those other secrets will only take you so far in life…. You seem well informed just from the few words you have shared…

Thanks for your time and sharing good info…..

@iamhigh, I find all of this to be absolutely fascinating. I love the concept of masturbation and semen release to be an “escapist mentality”. If indeed one can take… i guess ill call it “sexual Frustration” and turn it in to a positive energy i would absolutely love to do so.

However, I do have a girlfriend as well and sex is a huge part of a relationship (or so my upbringing in this country teaches me) I have struggled with expectations of sex for a while I.E. Whether or not its normal to want sex as much as i do or if it societally imposed on me by the media..

In regards to having a girlfriend though, i have come up with only one conceivable way to continue having sex and still orgasm. If you read the Kama Sutra, in the practice of “tantric sex” a male can condition the muscle in the tube( sorry i dont know the name) to not release sperm while having an orgasm. If you continue to condition the muscle to be stronger you can flex it while having an orgsasm and if done correctly, no sperm will be released. However i do not know if that is healthy and it is also very hard to do.

In addtion though, if it is mastered you could potentially retain your sperm and have more sex because the release of sperm results in not being as hard. So if you master tantric sex you can have multiple orgasms as well as retain your sperm…

I havent done it maybe someone on here has feedback. Hope this helps! HE love

Hi all. I am new here and just want to comment on what a fantastic community you have here. Now this topic seems interesting and seems to make sense according to the various ancient medical practices, but does anyone have any links to the scientific studies where this is proven. When I want to start making changes in my life I often want to be very sure that they are correct.

Alright, I have attempted this before but sadly have failed due to raging hormones. Now however, I will fight the urge and conquer it. I will move mountains and calm the oceans with the power of semen retention. Seriously though, when I wasn’t masterbating for awhile I felt like a BOSS. I dont think this is unhealthy at all. Look at most animals besides some apes, none of them masterbate. Have you seen a lion? Those things will rip your face off. And you know why? Cuz they dont pull their meat like BITCHES. Lol! Cheers!

@kikewhite, Try it yourself and see how it works for you, that’s the only study you should really listen to anyway.

I tried this a few times in 30 day intervals, and honestly the only discerning difference was that my sex drive all but disappeared during the latter half of the 30 days. I felt less grounded, and less part of this awesome machine called the human body.

Everyone is different. I tend to be soaring high up in la-la land half the time anyway, so sexual release really balances me out and integrates me physically. You’ll never know ’til you try. So try!

Science is always proving itself wrong anyway ;)

@xyver, I don’t think anybody ever answered your question on this thread about your body resorbing unused sperm cells. What happens is your body produces macrophages that come in and eat the cells and break them down that have passed on to make room for brand new cells. So pretty much there is an internal flow. Just not a flow outward, just learned this very recently in biology
