The sexual energy is the most concentrated energy the body is capable of producing. This energy is intended for creating another human being when directed out into the world. When directed upwards through the meridian system it fires the alchemical transformation of Essence (Jing) into Pure Vitality (Qi) and Spiritual Potential (Shen).
At the ordinary level the refining of sexual energy generates good health, high vitality and a dynamic personality. At the extraordinary level it opens the possibility of opening the second cauldron if the ego is no longer at the center of the personality.
Since our emotions are intimately connected with the vital organs the recycled sexual energy is capable of multiplying the intensity of the emotions flowing through the organs. We are capable of multiplying great generosity to the level of infinite care or anger of the most destructive kind.
The recycling of sexual energy requires a sustained regular practice transforming the negative emotions otherwise it becomes a double-edged sword in the hands of the inexperienced beginner.
If the Introductory Level has generated a good flow through the meridian system and organs, the sexual practices will empower that flow with higher frequencies. The organism will eventually re-structure itself at a higher level of vitality and health. However all this empowerment depends on the altruistic motivation of the second cauldron, otherwise, if the ego occupies the center of our personality, there is great risk of sexual manipulation of others and the karmic consequences it brings.
A product of successfully recycling the sexual energy is a greater sense of energy integrity, personal boundaries and social relationships based on mutual trust and respect.
