The Awakening Woman
The journey to becoming an empowered, healthy, and vibrant woman can be both exciting and intimidating. You might be wondering where and how to begin the process. Many women find that beginning a practice with the Yoni Egg not only offers physiological benefits, but also allows them to feel more spiritually connected with their bodies. Read below to learn how a Yoni Egg can benefit almost every woman.
The term ‘yoni’ comes from Sanskrit, the philosophical language of ancient Eastern tradition. The word alludes the the vulva and vagina, and refers to the divine procreative energy of the female. Our fertility and ability to bring life to this beautiful planet is miraculous and powerful because as women, we have the ability to carry and nurture new bodies and souls. When we become more connected to our physical, energetic, and spiritual being, we open up the ability to connect with the gifts of intuition and mindfulness. We are able to more easily push away from anxiety and embrace the creativity of life. Jade Eggs were a common practice in ancient Asian culture, because the women knew of the value in keeping the sexual organs spiritually and physically strong.
Over time, less emphasis has been granted to the spiritual nature of the female body, giving the negative attitude of monthly bleeding as a messy nuisance. While bleeding can be inconvenient with undesirable side effects, the attitude surrounding the monthly bleed can be envisioned and perceived in a more psychologically healthy way. Monthly bleeding can become a celebration of fertility with healthier eating habits and a strong pelvic floor from practicing with a Yoni Egg. It is not ideal to dread an entire week out of every month of the year, and women can rise out of this negative conditioning to become aware of the beauty offered by womanhood! This process can also motivate women to connect with the entire fertility cycle, which can bring confidence to having a truly natural form of birth control.
A Yoni Egg is a high quality natural gemstone that is cut into the shape and smooth texture of an egg. The egg is inserted into the vagina, where it both strengthens and gently massages the vaginal walls. Practicing with the egg is ideal when doing yoga or participating in meditation. Over time as the pelvic floor strengthens, women can wear their eggs while going about daily life. Some women choose to use drilled eggs, which can be worn with organic hemp string for convenient removal. Eggs sometimes choose to stay in the vagina for multiple days, which is often an indicator that some extra attention is needed. Trust that the egg will release when it is ready!
Yoni Eggs can be worn during lovemaking, which can be extremely sensual for the woman and her partner. This is not recommended for casual sexual encounters, as the egg could absorb energy from other person. Carefully select with whom you want to share energy!
All of the gemstones from Awaken Holistic Bodywork & Wellness are certified for purity by the Gemological Institute of America. Practicing with genuine crystals is essential because certain gemstones should never be used for this practice, and crystals are often dyed or polished. This could create an imbalance of the pH in the vagina, which could cause yeast infections and bacterial growth. Alternately, pure gemstones will assist in the balancing and homeostasis of the yoni. The current selection consists of Amethyst Quartz, Black Obsidian, Carnelian, Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, and Jade. All crystals are currently available in size medium, with some optionally drilled.
