Have you heard of a yoni egg, or a jade egg? “Yoni” is a Sanskrit word, defined as “the vulva, especially as a symbol of divine procreative energy conventionally represented by a circular stone.” It is an ancient Chinese custom among high society women, who knew the secrets of inserting a crystal, most commonly Jade, egg within the vaginal canal. This has been proven useful for thousands of years, with many benefits for both the physical and energetic bodies. According to Secrets of Jade, “The use of a Jade egg to strengthen the vagina is a Taoist practice that evolved from ancient China. Legend has it that the secret was kept in the Royal Palace and taught only to the queen and mistresses of the most powerful nobles. It was believed that women who mastered the Jade Egg techniques would maintain their youthful beauty, vitality and sexuality as they matured into old age.”
As women, we hold a lot of negative residual energy, trauma, and hurt in our womb space and our hips. When something happens in our lives, to us or to ourselves, that energy is stored within the physical body and is held stagnant there. As women, this is often in the womb or reproductive organs, which can manifest in may ways: pain, cramps, reproductive issues, infertility, etc (not to say that all of these issues are caused by hurt or negativity, and the more severe issues should be worked out with your doctor, but I am saying some of it can be cause) and the use of yoni egg can produce many healing benefits.
Benefits of Using a Yoni Egg:
- Recovery after childbirth
- Preventing or remedying urinary incontinence
- Enhanced sexual pleasure
- Reduced menstrual cramps
- More intense orgasms
- Stronger vaginal muscles
- Metaphysical properties of the individual gemstones and crystals
My absolute favorite place to find a Yoni Egg is from Yoni Crystals with whom I have recently collaborated with. At times, a company will really impress me and Yoni Crystals really did impress me immensely. They have a wonderful collection of unique crystal eggs, including star rose quartz, authentic jade, and several rare forms of obsidian, and have varying sizes for every body. After speaking with the owner of the company, who patiently explained all the meanings behind the different stones and how they work within the womb space, I chose Golden Sheen Obsidian. When the egg arrived, it was packaged adorably (is anyone else a sucker for beautiful packaging?) with a very helpful booklet explaining how to use the egg, its benefits, and how to connect energetically with the egg before use. The egg itself was perfect for me, and I felt an instant connection with it. Personally, I have a handful of yoni eggs, and I find myself reaching for this obsidian one, as its energetic properties are exactly what I need. If you are interested in trying out an egg, I highly recommend looking at Yoni Crystals shop first, browsing through the variety of eggs and their properties, and choosing one based on the particular needs of your body & soul. They also have wands and orbs available, so finding something that meets your needs with be a breeze.
Let me know in the comments if you found and egg you connect with, and your personal experience with using an egg, wand, or orb!
