“You put what, where? And why?”
That was my immediate reaction when, after I’d asked the participants of my intention setting workshop if they ever set intentions, one lady replied that she uses a Yoni Egg for her intention work.
Being raised a highly sexually repressed Christian (thanks mom for making me sign a mini contract saying I’d stay a virgin till I was married – that was great and didn’t mess me up at all!), I was like – how can she be talking about her Yoni right now to a room full of strangers!!!
She was so cool and calm about it, like it wasn’t no thang.
Needless to say for me though, I was amazed this lady had been so open about her Yoni Egg practice and I immediately kind of dismissed the whole experience as just being very odd.
It wasn’t till about 2-3 months later when I was doing my monthly healing arts fair booth that 2 Yoni Egg related things happened:
- My friend and fellow healer Nicole came up to chat and began talking about how excited she was to buy her first Yoni Egg at this fair from her friend Divina, and Nicole’s excitement is very contagious
- I realized that the beautiful egg-shaped crystals the lady at the booth across from me was selling were actually Yoni Eggs!
Coincidence? I think not.
And so, with curiosity very piqued, I went to talk to Divina about her Yoni Eggs.
There were about 6 different types of crystal Yoni Eggs on display, the only ones I remember now are the rose quartz, jade, and jasper. Those were the 3 I was torn between.
I wanted to set some powerful intentions around abundance so jade seemed the obvious first choice. But then something deeper inside me said. “NO. Self love comes first. Self love is the core and the key and the foundation that needs to be in place first.” And so I bought the rose quartz Yoni Egg.
Perhaps at this point I should take a quick moment to explain what a Yoni Egg is for all y’all who don’t know. Yoni eggs are crystals in the shape of eggs, there are 3 sizes, and they are used by women mostly internally (but also externally) to super charge manifestation, intention setting, and connect with your womb and the Divine Feminine.
On a physiological level, the use of a Yoni Egg strengthens the pelvic floor, helps with libido, stimulating lubrication, and can help prepare you for childbirth. It’s beneficial for post-menopausal women too as it helps with sensuality and longevity.
On a strange side note, after reading that Yoni Eggs have been used in Asia for over 5000 years, I remember buying a large egg shaped crystal while backpacking through India! No idea then what it was really meant to be used for, lol.
So that’s what they are.
Now back to my story.
I first used my Yoni Egg on the day of a full moon and damn – did it have a super charged effect! I took the time to journal about all I wanted to release and all I wanted to manifest. Then I cleansed the Egg with a special lavender and sage smudge, purified it with the hot water, and finally held it and set my intentions into it.
The first time I only used it over a 24 hour period. The second time I felt drawn to work with it for as many days as I kept feeling inspired too. Oh, and the second time I began working with The Sophia Code activations at the same time and it was really cool. I could probably write a whole post about that too.
Honestly before I used my Yoni Egg the first time, I had a lot of “logistical” questions. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos and read some articles, but it was only after using it and realizing how natural and easy everything was that I was able to relax about it.
I feel like I could keep writing for pages about all the insights and revelations I got from using my Yoni Egg, but I’m going to wrap it up here.
In a nutshell – I love my Yoni Egg. I will be buying more. The lady I bought my Egg from has 9 of her own. Each crystal has a different energy that it brings to your body and life.
I even saw mini Yoni Egg pendant necklaces! What the what!?! Love it. Love the idea of having my heart and sacral charka connected.
Oh, that’s actually one last thing I did want to mention about Yoni Eggs – they really help stimulate the sacral chakra. I’ve been setting intentions about releasing any trauma – present or past life – from that area so I can open the space fully for creation.
I’ve noticed health improvements as well as more self-love and empowerment feelings since using my Yoni Egg. AWESOME.
I’m feeling very inspired to hold Yoni Egg girl’s nights to get the word out and conversations about Yonis going. Let’s break the taboos together and reclaim this very powerful Divine Feminine practice and piece of ourselves!
