When visiting arousal with clients I have found there are two main types of arousal: “pure snow” and mental arousal. Pure snow is the arousal that flows through you like a fountain from your perineum, unbidden by you, and is what you experience as a child the first time arousal awakens in you. At some point this arousal is shamed in some form or another, and then a layer of guilt or shame blankets the groin. A boy has an erection and is escorted out of the room. A child is told to stop humping the couch. It doesn’t need to even involve verbal shaming. We just develop a sense that this thing moving through us that we don’t comprehend is not for company. And we don’t know why. A child cannot understand this. I’d say 99% of the population has some form of shame connected to their root chakra due to the messages they received early on in life when they had no idea what arousal even was.
