A Complete Beginners Guide On How To Use Your Yoni Eggs
Upon receiving your yoni egg you will want to give it a thorough cleaning. Cleanse your yoni gem in warm water with a light non-harsh soap.
What Is A Yoni?
Yoni means sacred temple and is the Sanskrit word for vagina. Using the word yoni instead of vagina is a way that wombyn can reclaim our femininity by honoring our sacred temple; our vessel to create life and birth joy, abundance, creativity and meaning into our world.
How Do I Choose My Size?
Yoni eggs come in 3 sizes. Large, Medium and Small. We begin our practice with the large egg that is easiest for us to grip and work our way gradually down to the small egg as our dexterity grows. The larger the egg, the easier it is for our muscles to grip it. If you have never practiced with a yoni egg before, you may find it difficult to keep in for any length of time. You can begin your practice sitting or lying down. Have patience with yourself as you build strength and muscle memory. The pyramids weren't built in a day!
Clearing your yoni gem will remove any lingering negative energy that it may have picked up before coming to you. One way to clear your yoni egg is through burning sage. Smudge your yoni egg by burning sage over your crystal allowing the cleansing smoke to absorb the yoni egg and surrounding area.
After you have cleared your yoni egg you will want to charge her. A gemstone never loses it's earth given energy, however it is always a good idea to give it some extra juice. You can charge your yoni egg in sun or moon light: Place your gemstone under the sun or moon light. Let sit for a couple hours or as long as you feel is needed.
You're almost ready to begin your practice, but first try bonding and connecting with your yoni egg. Set your intentions for what you want to accomplish out of your journey. Hold the crystal in the palms of your hand, state your intentions out loud or in your head. Repeat your intentions until you feel they are set.
How to insert:
Inserting your yoni egg is simple and fun. We recommend inserting with the tip pointing down, however, either way is perfectly fine. Inserting a yoni egg is just like inserting a tampon with no applicator.
Some yoni eggs have a drilled hole so you can add string for easy retrieval,Don't worry, your yoni egg can't get stuck!
It can only go as far as your cervix, which acts as a wall, keeping her with in the canal only.
How to use:
Once your yoni egg is in, there are a few different way to use her:
- Yoni breathing
When To NOT use a Yoni Egg:
If you have a infection, including: yeast and UTI
During at- risk pregnancies that include: medical complications, multiple miscarriages, weak uterus cases.
During your menstrual cycle as it is recommended to allow your uterus to release during this time
Caution: If you have an IUD of any kind, it is recommended to use either an undrilled yoni egg to avoid the risk of the string tangling with the wires of the IUD.
How to Remove:
Removing your yoni/jade egg is simple; get into a deep squat position and push out with your vaginal muscles. If needed, you may use your fingers to scoop the yoni egg out or try a little jump up and down. For string users, give it a gentle tug (think removing a tampon and allow her to glide out slowly and easily).
How Do I Clean My Yoni Egg Crystal?
It is necessary to clean your yoni egg before insertion. Always handle your yoni egg with clean hands. Warm salt water baths with pink Himalayan salt or unscented castile soap such as Dr. Bronner's are great options for keeping your yoni egg hygienic and ready to be placed in your sacred temple. NO scented soaps! Antibacterial soaps may be used if your yoni egg comes in contact with the ground, the inside of a toilet or any unsanitary surface. For auric cleansing of your crystal, sage or palo santo may be used. Your yoni egg will appreciate bathing in the moonlight every once in a while to be cleared from the energy that it picks up from being in your creation center.
Boiling: DO NOT BOIL YOUR YONI EGGS! Different crystal types will react differently to extreme heat, if you boil your yoni eggs you risk causing them to crack, fade and become unsafe for you to continue to use.
