The Battle of the Sexes:The Sympathetic and Parasympathetic

In the world of human biology, there exists two main systems: the Sympathetic (male) and Parasympathetic (female) systems. These systems are responsible for maintaining our overall physical and mental health. But did you know that these systems also have a connection to tantra?

In tantra, there is a concept of Shiva (male) and Shakti (female) energies. Shiva is associated with the Sympathetic system, which is responsible for the fight or flight response. It’s like the guy who wants to go out and conquer the world, but sometimes ends up in trouble because of his impulsive behavior.

On the other hand, Shakti is associated with the Parasympathetic system, which is responsible for rest and relaxation. She’s the calming force that keeps things in balance, like the woman who knows when to say “enough is enough” and take a break from the chaos.

Just like in a relationship, Shiva and Shakti energies need to be in balance for us to function at our best. Too much of Shiva’s energy can lead to stress and burnout, while too much of Shakti’s energy can result in lethargy and lack of motivation.

So the next time you’re feeling stressed out or exhausted, take a moment to check in with your Sympathetic and Parasympathetic systems. Perhaps it’s time to let your Shakti energy take the lead and give yourself a break, or maybe it’s time to let your Shiva energy step up and take charge. Either way, remember that the key to a healthy and balanced life is all about finding the right balance between the two.
