The Yoni Egg: Best kept secret of China’s Royal Palace
Yoni egg, are names for a beautiful semiprecious stone carved into an egg shape and polished to be worn inside the vagina.
It is estimated that women have been practicing with stone eggs for over 5,000 years. Empresses and concubines of the Royal Palace of China used eggs carved out of jade to access sexual power, awaken sensuality and maintain amazing health into their old age. Up until recently, this ancient, secret practice was only available to members of the royal family, and to select Taoist practitioners.
“Yoni” is a Sanskrit word for the female genitalia that means “sacred space.” Its symbol has been worshiped in Eastern cultures since ancient times for bestowing life, creativity and love. We will be using the term “yoni” to bring appreciation and acknowledgment – so often lacking in Western culture – to the creative power this magical part of the female body holds.
Below are a few of many benefits that you can experience if you practice with a Yoni Egg regularly:
- Increase libido and awaken your sensuality.
- Increase natural lubrication, even after menopause. Balance estrogen levels.
- Get to know your yoni closely. Start developing a loving relationship with your yoni, your entire body, and ultimately yourself.
- Practicing with a Yoni Egg not only helps tighten the vaginal walls; it also awakens the tissues, organs, and muscles, promotes new nerve growth, and increases overall sensitivity. This will allow you to experience pleasure you didn’t even know was possible. Be prepared to experience new kinds of orgasms. If you’ve never had a vaginal orgasm before, diligent practice can change this and open up entirely new types of sensation and pleasure.
- Overcome some issues with infertility.
- Easier childbirth with less tearing of the tissue. If you have already given birth, this practice will help repair damaged nerve endings and speed your body’s recovery.
- Strengthen your pelvic floor to help with incontinence and prevent prolapse in the future.
- Gain Control over the vaginal muscles. Increase intimacy.
- A must for serious Tantra, Qigong, and Yoga practitioners.
- Reduced PMS, menstrual cramps and the duration of your menses.
- Improve overall health and well-being.
The Yoni Egg isn’t just an exquisite accessory that will add charm to your night stand. It isn’t just a great tool for kegel exercises, or a way to maintain health, have better orgasms and more fulfilling sex.
The Yoni Egg is an ancient, sacred tool for spiritual transformation.
Let’s Take a Deeper Look at Why Practicing with a Yoni Egg Produces such Profound Effects.
The pelvic floor is a large group of muscles that form a “basket” or a diaphragm which supports all of our internal organs. In eastern practices like Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, and belly dancing, there is a big emphasis put on pelvic floor exercises. It is said that life force, prana, or chi can leak through the pelvic floor and be lost if those muscles are weak. This life force energy is essential for maintaining high energy levels and longevity.
Most of us pretty much never engage the pelvic floor muscles. This leads to reproductive health problems, painful menses, loss of sensitivity and sensation, and overall low energy levels. In fact, the main culprit of reproductive illness is lack of blood flow to this area of the body. Plus, most of us are in our heads 24/7, and are largely disconnected from our bodies…especially the parts below the belt.
Heal Your Body and Awaken Sensuality.
Many women in our culture have trouble experiencing orgasms. The main reason for this is disconnection from the body, and especially from “down there.” Due to trauma, negative emotions stored in the tissue, growing up in a sexually oppressive culture, perceived or real abandonment, or simple lack of exercise and attention, many women’s genitals become numb, weak and dry. The sexual organs of most women really need some loving attention!
When you practice with a Yoni Egg, you engage the muscles of the vagina and the pelvic floor, and bring awareness to your sexual organs. Your brain starts to create new neuron connections correlated with these areas of the body. New nerve endings form directly in the tissue, which in turn increases sensitivity.
Yoni Egg practice stimulates the bartolin glands inside the vagina that are responsible for producing natural lubrication. One of the first effects women notice is increased lubrication. This is especially important for post-menopausal women.
The Yoni Egg is an amazing tool for helping restore the elasticity and suppleness of our sexual organs to their pre-childbirth state, and even surpassing it. It is also fantastic for preventing prolapses and curing incontinence. Do not wait until you give birth to start the practice – there are Yoni Egg exercises specifically designed to prepare women for childbirth.
Become Much More Orgasmic.
Did you know that women can experience many different kinds of orgasms? Among them are vaginal, cervical and uterine orgasms. Practicing with your Yoni Egg can awaken your body and mind to make these life changing experiences possible.
Release Trauma Stored in the Body.
Many psychological traumas are stored in the body, and large percentage in the yoni. We are not just talking about sexual trauma. The yoni, as one of the most essential parts of our being, naturally stores emotional and energetic imprints we pick up in our lives. It makes sense to work with trauma directly at the source, in the body tissue where it is stored. Releasing the patterns of tension in the tissue can help release trauma and remove psychological blockages, which can be tremendously more effective than just talking about them. This is why working with your egg has the power to help you heal old wounds and awaken the life and love you truly desire.
If you notice stirring emotions when you work with your egg, remember to be gentle with yourself. Go slow. Consider taking a break to journal, rest, or spend time in nature.
Yoni Egg Practice Creates Positive Effects that Go Beyond Sexual Wellness.
Inside the vagina there are many reflexology points, just like the ones on the palms of our hands. They correspond with the internal organs – heart, liver, kidneys, spleen, etc. When you wear your egg you are massaging these reflexology points in a similar way to acupuncture, stimulating and rejuvenating the organs of your entire body. It has been noted that women who enjoy sex into old age tend to look younger
Practicing with an egg increases blood flow to your pelvic organs and helps move stagnant energy. Stimulating the ovaries in this gentle way balances hormone levels and reduces PMS and menstrual cramps. If you practice with Nephrite Jade egg, rose quartz egg, or black obsidian egg, you will also benefit from your stone’s specific healing properties.
Reclaim your Feminine Power.
Your yoni and womb are amazing, magical places capable of bestowing new life, creating new ideas and visions, and providing you with amazing erotic experiences. By connecting to your yoni and your womb, the very center of your being, you can start accessing your feminine power and creative potential.
How to Practice With a Yoni Egg?
Simple kegel exercises are the foundation of the Yoni Egg practice. Doing kegels is already great. Doing them with a Yoni Egg is like doing curls with a dumbbell instead of just flexing your biceps.
As you become more advanced, you can learn to manipulate the egg by moving different muscle groups inside your yoni! This is usually referred to as Pompoir or “Vaginal Kung Fu.” How do you like that?
Note: As with every exercise routine, regular practice is much better than sporadic practice. Sporadic practice is better than no practice at all. Practicing with intention and enjoyment, as opposed to just going through the mechanical motions, will make a world of difference. The best thing you can do when practicing with your Yoni Egg is make it into a ritual of self-love and self-care. Set aside some time that’s just for you and start with a gentle breast massage. The more love you give to yourself and your body, the more love you will have to share with others.
The great thing is that although doing kegels and other pelvic floor exercises will enhance your experience with the Yoni Egg, you can reap the benefits by simply wearing it! The egg will work its magic regardless. In fact, if you’ve never done kegels before, it’s best to ease into the practice and start by just wearing your Yoni Egg for the first two weeks. Sleeping with the egg is another way you can ease into your routine and start benefiting from its properties. Your yoni will play with the egg and the crystal will do its healing work, all while you rest.
Note: It is important to remember to focus on relaxation after contraction, melting and relaxing your pelvic floor. The goal is to increase suppleness while developing muscle strength. Think about it being similar to yoga, which involves a combination of straining and stretching, tension and relaxation.
Add a New Dimension to your Favorite Activities.
The Yoni Egg can be an enhancement to your favorite practices and activities. Once you feel confident in your ability to hold the egg, you can Meditate or attend Yoga, Qigong, belly dance .The egg will engage muscles that would usually stay dormant during these activities, strengthening your yoni and bringing you new sensations and awareness. Just try to remember the presence of your the Yoni Egg. Sneezing, laughing or coughing can force it to pop out, so be ready to “catch it” with your muscles.
What Type of Crystal Should I Start With?
You can find Yoni Eggs made of many types of exotic crystals online. Keep in mind that not every crystal is safe to be worn inside the yoni, especially for prolonged periods of time. Even if something is available for sale online as a Yoni Egg, it is not a guarantee that this particular type of stone is 100% safe to be worn internally. It is always a good idea to do your own research. In traditional Taoist practices, practitioners use three types of crystal eggs: Nephrite jade yoni egg, Rose quartz yoni egg and Black obsidian yoni egg. These semiprecious stones have been used for thousands of years and their safety is time-tested.
Unlike many other kegel weights Yoni Eggs are made from semiprecious stones and are completely natural and free of artificial chemicals.
Nephrite jade is considered the best stone for basic Yoni Egg wear and practice. Nephrite jade is also the suggested stone for beginners, for a number of reasons. When you look at the facts, it’s no surprise that the Empresses and concubines of the Royal Palace of China favored the Jade Egg over other gemstone eggs. Genuine nephrite jade is a very hard, smooth and nonporous semiprecious stone. It is nearly impossible to break or crack if you ever accidentally drop it; it has a high thermal conductivity; it can be easily cleaned and disinfected by boiling it in water; and it’s a perfect weight to be used as a kegel exercise aid. With proper care, your Jade Egg is like a diamond ring – buy it once and wear it for life.
Nephrite jade is also known to be the best stone for helping to heal the female reproductive system and balance hormones. It is a very gentle and protective stone that shields the owner from external unwanted energy, while working on healing any past traumas or energetic build-up. Where other crystals might stir up emotions as they do healing work, which could become overwhelming at times, the jade egg works softly and promotes a sense of well-being.
That being said, choosing a Yoni Egg is a very personal decision, and I truly believe that every woman intuitively knows which stone is right for her. One of the main reasons to practice with a Yoni Egg is to get more in touch with your own beautiful body, and ultimately with yourself… That means learning to trust your intuition.
Please keep in mind that most jade sold on the market is fake, chemically altered, or made out of pressed stone chip. Always look for certified solid nephrite jade when shopping for Jade Eggs to assure the best quality and safety for your health.
Never use a crystal from a crystal shop that is not specifically sold as a Yoni Egg. Harsh chemicals, dyes and artificial fillers are used during the manufacturing process of most decorative crystals sold on the market.
Natural gem stones possess healing qualities you can start taking advantage of for your physical, emotional, mental and energetic well-being.
Royal Palace dwellers knew this thousands of years ago. Through Jade Egg practice, they were able to reclaim their feminine power, fully step into their sensual self, and awaken creativity, all while keeping their sexual organs healthy, youthful and resilient.
