The Yoni Effect | Self-care TIP 02

Hey ladies. If you’re reading this blog, more than likely you’ve seen me post a semi-large pink egg on my FB page and you got curious about what it is.

In a nutshell, a yoni egg is a semi-precious stone that has been carved into the shape of a small egg that is inserted inside the yoni and used for vaginal wall tightening and energetic cleansing.

“WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT…HOLD UP NAILAH. ONE SEC…HUH? IT’S A WHAT THAT’S SHAPED LIKE WHAHHHH… THAT YOU PUT WHERE AND DO WHAT WITH?!”

Yes, I hear you. Before we all freak out, let’s provide some context.

“The word ‘yoni’ in sanskrit, means source, origin, womb, sacred place and is an all-encompassing name for the vulva. It is also the symbol of the Goddess or shakti in Hinduism. The practices of strengthening the pelvic floor with jade or yoni eggs was started by the queens and concubines of Ancient China. These secret practices are now being rediscovered and taught to many women who want to create a more vibrant life.

The Yoni Effect!

SO, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO HAVE AN EGG-SHAPED CRYSTAL INSIDE OF YOUR VAGINA?

Here’s the list of benefits I’ve gathered for you. It speaks for itself. Afterwards, you can tell me why you wouldn’t want to have a Yoni egg in your life.

  • Spiritual enlightenment and spiritual awareness Increase.
  • Emotional balancing.
  • Awaken your feminine power
  • Helps remove trauma stored in the womb.
  • Detoxifies the uterus/womb.
  • Massages the reflexology points in the vaginal wall.
  • Strengthens the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Tightens and tones the vaginal wall.
  • Increase vaginal lubrication.
  • Control vaginal muscle manipulation, enhancing sexual pleasure for you and your partner.
  • Prevents sagging of the uterus, rectum, and bladder.
  • Increase hormones and regulate hormonal balance.
  • Helps with fertility.
  • Reduces cramping and abdominal pain during the menses.
  • Helps maintain a healthy reproductive organ.
  • It’s100% natural.

 

BASIC DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

To insert egg by squatting. Lubricate your vagina opening (the vulva) with lubricant. This can be an oil or whatever you typically use for lubrication. Gently guide the egg into the vagina. This process is all about what feels most comfortable for you.

MY IN-DEPTH EXPERIENCE FOR ONE DAY (WELL, MORE LIKE A COUPLE OF HOURS, BUT I’LL GET INTO THAT LATER…)

To me, the Yoni Egg is an incredible tool to not only increase the sensitivity at the entrance of your vagina but also to become aware of a more energetic sphere of experience within your Yoni.

Nailah, guh, whatchu mean by that?

Well, to me whenever I masturbate or make love I am very aware of “Doors”, different depths of opening within my Yoni.

But, my first time using the Yoni egg was a great way for me to become aware of each one much more easier than with my finger.

Today, I’m sharing how I opened that “door”.

The first physical door is of course the entrance of your Yoni, I believe there are more energetic doors before that but for the sake of this conversation let’s just say that the first door is the entrance of your Yoni.

More often than not, we women, have been entered without our Yoni’s really being ready (and I am not blaming anyone here, I believe as a society we are not educated otherwise), so what happens is that our first door is more often than not being forced open by our sexual partners but also by ourselves.

Most women rarely give themselves full permission to take the time they need in order for their Yoni to fully awaken before penetration. This is, of course, extremely important for me because I’m not only on a self-love journey, but also one in which I explore my sexual apparatus.

Personally, I believe what women don’t realize is that it is so incredibly pleasurable to open each door consciously and we can have much more of an active role in the penetrative act.

Yes, it’s not just about spreading our legs from continent to continent and then pushing or letting something in. We can actually invite our finger, toy or partner in, and when in…. deeper and deeper and deeper….

Feel me?

When excited enough, your Yoni will actually draw your finger, the egg or a penis inside itself.

Within your Yoni there are many other energetic doors, that when consciously open bring you great pleasure, an incredible feeling of surrender and of course deeper and stronger orgasm.

I discovered this, again, whilst masturbating. Masturbation was where I first discovered the true depths of my sexuality, what I liked, and didn’t, and how, of course, to make myself conjure up an orgasm. It’s been something that has fascinated me ever since and it has revolutionized the way I connect with my Yoni and make love.

It took practice and it’s actually what inspired me to write these blogs.

I really wanted to help women to connect with themselves in a different (more pleasurable) way and give them a space to explore what was actually possible when they slowed down and gave their Yoni enough time to fully awaken and open.

So, what can you do to start exploring this possibility?

You get your yoni egg. Now, there are multiple other things to do to improve your Yoni health, which of course I’ll be covering like yoni steams and such but…in due time. For now, this blog is strictly bout the Yoni egg.

Okay, so enough about the chit/chat, Nailah, girl, where did you get this damn egg?

So, I found out about the Yoni egg through an herbalist I met earlier this year at an event where I just so happened to be selling my books.

She goes by the name: The Urban Goddiss and her website can be found here.

Aside from Yoni eggs, she also specializes in natural home products that cater to your Yoni health like her famed “Yoni Sauce”, which is a handmade herbal and rose quartz infused oil that is great for our lady parts and can be used both internally and externally. It’s also jam-packed with anti-fungal and anti-bacterial ingredients. Personally, I have some of this yoni sauce in my bathroom cabinet and like to use it when my vulva PH is out of whack after my period…

Anyway, I purchased my “self-love coochie” egg for $20. (also known as rose quartz—each stone like the Black Obsidian and Amethyst have different traditional meanings and mystic energies).

After purchasing and receiving your Yoni egg, you must clean your Yoni Egg with warm water, gentle soap, or ACV (I bathed mine in sea salt water). This is important because you don’t know whose hands have been on it before not to mention, you just want a pristine clean yoni egg before inserting it up your vagina. The last thing you want is an infection because you were being too forward.

Next, is grabbing a string. There should be two holes at the slender tip of the egg.

 

STRING OPTIONS:

Silicone: Toxic Free. Reusable and easy to clean

Cotton: Reusable. Wash after each use. Change every 2-3 weeks. Great for Vaginal Weight Lifting

Beeswax covered hemp string or plain string: Not Reusable

Why use a string? The string gives an added benefit of being able to tug on the egg for stimulation, exercises, and easy removal. Aka, the “Yoni Tug of War”

Before insertion, but you can do this anytime from receiving it until insertion, bless it and set your intentions. Go into your sacred space, reflect on what you wish to change, heal, grow, etc. You can write these intentions down and read them aloud to it. Remember, the Yoni egg is all about self-love and healing.

While you ‘wear’ your egg, although you can do exercises for physical purposes, the wonderful beauty of yoni eggs is the internal and emotional transformation they can provide. Holding a crystal in your purse, next to your bed on the dresser, under your pillow is also wonderful, but now that it is IN your body, there is a unique bond happening. It is now a part of you and with your womb as well.

Our wombs, like crystals, store information. Wombs also carry experiences, relationships, people, memories, other people’s information, even trauma. From conducting research, I found that our yoni eggs can assist with various womb work and help transmute all that no longer serves you.

Self love is the root of everything (especially on this here blog). Love yourself for making the choice to heal through yoni eggs. It’s not a necessity per se or for everyone, but it is a journey that once you’ve decided to commit to, you will be rewarded.

Now that your prepared to allow the Yoni to enter your body, get into a comfortable squat. And I DO MEAN COMFORTABLE. Not everyone has supportive knees, so if you must sit on a toilet, do so sus.

After I was in a comfortable squatting position with the edge of my ass on the bed, with my middle finger right at the entrance of my vagina, took in a deep breath. I breath all the way into my yoni and I bring my attention to the point of contact between the tip of my finger and my Yoni.

Continuing to breathe deeply, I gave myself time to get in tune my body. I use this as a kind of meditation to bring me into the present moment and give myself the time to feel what I may not had time to fully feel in my day. With each breath out, I relax deeper and deeper, not only my entire body but also and especially the muscle of my perineum (the area between the anus and the scrotum or vulva) and of my vagina.

When I felt fully present, I put the egg at the entrance of my Yoni, the bigger, rounder part of it. The tip is where the string is hanging. The opposite end of the tip should be partially placed inside your vagina.

Again, I bring my attention to the point of contact and breath into it.

With each breath out, I really focus on relaxing, surrendering and opening to the egg.

My awareness is on the sensations at the entrance of my Yoni.

With time, I can start to feel more and more sensations. At this point, I can also feel a little bit of resistance. My vagina wants to resist the odd unfamiliar object. But, I breathe deeply and continue…

I do not push the egg in but hold it firmly in place.

The more I relax and let go the more it finally begins to go in.

By the way, I forgot to mention that I did not use lube. I was able to insert the yoni egg with my own natural sauce.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Will it go too far or get stuck?

Put your worries at ease girl–that is simply impossible and here’s why:

The cervix, which is located at the top end of the vagina, keeps the uterus closed tightly (except during delivery). The cervix allows only bodily fluids to move in and out, as happens during menstruation and conception. Therefore, you can be sure that your yoni egg could not accidently go too deep.

HOW DOES IT COME OUT?

Personally, I only wore my Yoni egg for a couple of hours before I felt a cramp coming on later that night. I had plans on at least keeping it in for two days but apparently, Aunty Flow decided to pay me a visit four days before her expected stay, therefore interrupting my self-love ritual. So, I had to gently tug at my end strings and slowly pull the egg out.

Essentially, that’s all you have to do as well when wanting to remove the egg.

WHAT COMES AFTER?

Clean your egg and store it. I’ve also read that you may put your egg in the sun and moonlight to charge it’s healing properties.

Your vagina is highly absorbent. Treat yourself like the Queen you are by investing in high-quality healing tools.

I’d love to hear from you:

I’ve tried my best to be as informative as I could within this blog. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask or do your own research.

Also, do you have a Yoni egg practice? Can you or someone you know benefit from beginning their own practice?  Let me know in the comments below!
