My Yoni Egg Experience
I've had an interesting relationship with my intuition in the past. Sometimes I felt it so strong that it would compel me to do things I had never dreamed. Other times, I would call out to it searching for answers to questions that no amount of Googling would bring. It was at this place, where I decided to sign up for The Yoni Egg Journey, with Aura as our guide. I didn't know what to expect, but when I met Aura, something inside of me stirred. This woman embodied freedom, love, radiance and inner peace all at the same time. I wanted some of that, and I was ready and willing to receive.
I was given a journal and Rose Quartz crystal, shaped like an egg. The first week was spent bonding with the egg. I'd take it with me to work and hold it in my hand when I needed comfort. I'd set it outside in the sun to recharge, and lay it next to my bedside while I slept. It was oddly comforting. Then came the time to put it inside of me...
This is when a lot of things started to change. Suddenly, in my journal, all these hopes and dreams that I hadn't allowed myself to experience since I was a child, started pouring out. The process in my mind that sought to judge and suppress these desires was abated. Not only did I find myself expressing them, but I also believed that they could happen.
I'd always had a passion for the performing arts. The first time I went to see Lion King at the Pantages Theater, when I was 10, made me want to be on that stage! However, the desire was dimmed with heaps of logic and reason. I bought into the idea of what I "had" to "be", in order to be successful. At my core, though, I was still that person. It was just now, I found myself rediscovering her.
Another major shift was the way I came to understand relationships, sex and love. With this new found awareness, I began to question the ways in which I withheld love from myself and others. I reflected on how I expected my romantic relationships to meet all my love requirements. I started to realize and truly feel worthy of my own unconditional love and acceptance. Not due to status I had obtained, but because I exist here and now, and that in and of itself is a miracle. I felt myself opening up to giving and receiving love to complete strangers, hugging trees, and crying in awe when confronted with the beauty of God's creation and magnificence.
Without a doubt, the community and sisterhood that I developed with the women on this journey was the most sacred to me. Us coming together and sharing our stories made me realize that I wasn't alone. That we all are in various stages of our spiritual development and as such, have different problems. However, the pain is universal. It's always there, it was just amazing to have other women hold space for you to cry and release years of baggage!
I'm happy to report that me and my Yoni egg are still on this journey. Co-creating with the Divine to bring forth what my destiny on this earth is. I still do not know where the path will lead, but I am on it, with my womb and intuition leading the way! I am already set up for another Yoga and Detox retreat in Joshua Tree with Ayanna at Nakati Wellness Center for October 27th-30th. Let's get lifted!!
If you are curious, and want to start your journey, Aura is currently enrolling participants for the next Yoni Egg Journey, until October 17th! You can sign up here.
I wouldn't go into this experience expecting the yoni egg to bring magic into your life, because the yoni egg isn't magic...you are.
