Sex has been with us since ancient times, and love in its various forms has always been a basic human value. But intimacy is new. Although it is such a fundamental component of today's interpersonal relationships, so important in creating families, so highly valued as an important source of personal happiness, intimacy remains a mystery.Most people perceive that intimacy is either a part of a partner relationship if you are one of the luckier ones, or if you are not, you are simply out of luck. Relationships, sex life, marriage and love can survive to a certain level without intimacy, but the soul, heart and their energy cannot.
Stress is normal. It is our basic equipment for survival in alarming situations. The whole body goes into an emergency position to face perceived danger. But when being in that state of alarm consistently and permanently – the stress mechanism starts to destroy the very organism it designed to protect. And then stress becomes a destroyer, the major contributor to chronic diseases, organ destruction and premature death. And, unfortunately, that is also normal.
