Meet at the Belly Button
We have all heard the ‘men are from Mars, women are from Venus’ argument. In fact it could be said that it is a wonder we get on at all we are so different in many respects. Well last night Janet McGeever spoke about something that just made a whole lot of sense to me. I think this one understanding could make such a difference to how we relate as men and women not only sexually but also on many other levels.
Janet talked about our different dynamic and receptive parts of the body. You see in a women our dynamic areas are our heart, breasts (particularly nipples) and breath. All of these ‘house’ our emotion. We need to feel dynamic emotion for our receptive parts – vagina, womb etc to open and soften to allow intimacy. We need to feel love to have sex. Now a man’s dynamic parts are his genitals and his receptive parts are his heart, chest, breath. He needs to have sex to feel love. So we could think “Well there we are – polar opposites again” or…
We could see it as two sides of the same coin. We both want love and intimacy and fulfillment, we just receive it in different but complimentary ways. We can meet at the belly button by spending time just touching, kissing, communicating, exploring until the energy for both is perfectly positioned. It is not about right or wrong, good or bad, submissive and dominant – it is about honouring and awakening the flow.
I really love this explanation. Thanks Janet. You can down load Janet’s ‘hearticle’ Why Women Close Down – and how to open up again ” at her website www.theconsciousheart.com
