5 Powerful Ways the Jade Egg Will Change Your Life
The jade egg and the jade egg practice is one of the most powerful feminine tools available to women. The benefits of using the jade egg can range from completely physical to spiritual and energetic, depending upon how you use the jade egg.
There are many benefits from using the jade egg and especially when you commit to doing deeper jade egg practices. In this article, I would like to introduce you to the jade egg and discuss some of the powerful things it will change in your life by using it.
The jade egg is to be placed inside your vagina. Originally the jade egg practice was used by courtesans in ancient China. They were considered Taoist sexual practices that these women would do to keep their sexuality and female anatomy resilient for the Emperor. This is ancient eastern wisdom that is now available to you.
I originally was introduced to the jade egg practice by Saida Desilet over 12 years ago. She was one of my amazing teachers when I was doing my Spiritual Sexual Educator certification with the Divine Feminine Institute. I have used the egg ever since she introduced me to it. This wisdom has changed my life and I want the same for you.
Before I go any further though I would like to introduce a word to you. It may or may not be new to you, however it is an important word for every woman to know. The word is Yoni. When I refer to a woman’s sexual parts, female anatomy and her genitalia I most always use the word Yoni.
Yoni, translated from Sanskrit means “Sacred Space.” It is an absolutely, lovely word! It is neither nasty nor clinical. It is normal, natural and most of all honoring to that part of your body as a woman. This word can be spoken publicly without a negative connotation attached to it, quite the contrary, especially if the meaning is known. I would like to encourage you to use the word Yoni when referring to your female parts.
Over the years of using my crystal egg, I have found some powerful things it has done for me. I would like to share some of them with you.
- Changes Your Relationship with Your Female Parts
The most wonderful thing I love about having my crystal egg is that she has helped me to have a deeper relationship with my Yoni. Women hold the mysteries and all too often, we hold the mysteries from ourselves. Men are the “outies”, we are the “innies.”
A man has his anatomy right there, “sticking out” and it is easy for him to be tuned into that part of his body. For women, it is different. Since we are the “innies”, not as much is “sticking out.” Your Yoni isn’t as readily available to pay attention to. Your egg will help you to pay attention to her. That is what she likes, care and attention.
Since I have used a crystal egg in my Yoni for over 12 years “she” has been my Yoni’s most long standing intimate friend over the span of having gone through three intimate relationships and menopause. I have used not only the jade egg but also the rose quartz egg.
My preference is the rose quartz, however it is recommended to start with the traditional jade egg, though many women do start with the rose quartz egg. It is a matter of personal preference. Also, it depends on what crystal qualities you are wanting to work with as I will discuss later.
What I love about my Yoni egg is that she lets me know what is going on with me and my feminine parts. Sometimes my egg wants to wear her and sometimes she doesn’t. Sometimes she stays in longer than other times.
When I was a cycling woman, my Yoni didn’t want to have the egg in right before my period. It was wonderful to observe and honor that. My Yoni also changed when I was going through menopause. I noticed considerably how she didn’t want to wear the egg as much during that time.
I even had a period where my Yoni didn’t want to wear the egg at all and now she wants to wear her often. Overall my Yoni is so much happier when I am actively using my egg.
Besides wearing the crystal egg you can do deeper practices with the egg. I love when I take the time to do these practices. I cultivate more energy and awareness to that part of my body. What has happened in working with my vaginal egg is that I have a lot more vaginal muscle dexterity. But not only has my vaginal muscle awareness increased, my awareness of subtle and even spiritual energies in my Yoni have been awakened. This is a profound experience I would like all women to experience.
Working with the jade egg or rose quartz egg is a powerful way to change the relationship you have with your female parts.
- The Jade Egg & Rose Quartz Egg Have Healing Properties
Not only will your relationship with your Yoni change, the crystal eggs hold certain healing and energetic cleansing and purifying properties. If you have not worked with crystals I would highly recommend considering more ways you can use crystals to connect to your divine feminine energy.
For me crystals are truly magical. I use them not only for my health but also for protection. My car has a crystal in it to keep me safe when I drive. I have crystals in my house and garden. This is part of the “unseen” powers that you can tap into if you would like to awaken your divine feminine nature. Here is a link about an author who wrote an extensive book about the healing properties of crystals back in 1992 called Love Is In The Earth. http://www.melodycrystals.co.uk/Love_is_in_the_Earth.php
When you work with the jade or rose quartz egg and place it into your vagina what you are doing is putting healing properties into a part of your body that has held cultural shame. Possibly even tremendous amounts of shame. Working with the egg helps you to clear this energy that literally weighs your consciousness down keeping you from your full potential.
I always recommend placing your crystal egg in with an intention or prayer. In this way, you are working with your egg spiritually and not just physically. This will awaken the more respectful, reverent and spiritual side of your sexuality.
Both the jade egg and the rose quartz egg have amazing healing properties.
The jade stone has what I would call more masculine energies or qualities and the rose quartz stone has more feminine qualities.
Jade is call the “Dream Stone.” It is considered the stone of longevity, health and well-being. Jade transmutes negativity and instills resourcefulness. It helps you to balance the needs of self with the needs of others. It instills confidence and self-reliance. These are powerful qualities! Imagine these qualities emanating from the core of your being.
What is beautiful about the jade egg is that you are putting a masculine energy in the most feminine part of you. On an energetic level, there is a magical marriage of the masculine and feminine happening in that part of your body. Something to think about!
Rose quartz is known as a “stone of gentle love.” It emits a calming energy, gently removing negativity and supporting the gentle forces of self-love. It brings calmness and clarity to emotions. The energy is soft and silky, cultivating a sense gentleness for those that use it. It helps to bring peacefulness and calm to relationships.
Did you know that the hips can hold fear? In sexual reflexology (relating different parts of the vagina to different organs and emotions) it is also known that the opening to the vagina can hold fear. If you have ever had a fearful or negative sexual experience, chances are, you were left with emotional imprints in your Yoni and in your psyche. Imagine putting such a soft, loving healing energy into that part of you. These eggs, when worked with lovingly and consciously, can be very transformative for you.
- Increase the Connection to Your Femininity
Because working with the egg connects you to your female parts it will automatically get you connected to your femininity. It is all up to you how much you take advantage of the jade egg practice to help you connect to the deeper parts of your femininity.
When I refer to your femininity I am referring to your receptivity, your divine feminine nature and your ability to nurture yourself. If you treat the egg like a tampon with little regard for the subtler energies your jade egg is awakening in you then you will increase your connection to your femininity a fraction of what is possible.
Part of working with the jade egg and learning the jade egg practices, is learning how to SLOW DOWN. We live in such a masculine oriented, fast paced, focused, “get it done” type world. Yoni’s don’t respond well to this type of energy.
The beauty of learning the jade egg practices is that it supports you slowing down, taking time for yourself and your Yoni, going into your inner world and cultivating your subtle energy body. These are all feminine qualities.
Just as the Pointer Sisters song states a woman wants a man with a slow hand, your Yoni wants, loves and craves, slow energy. The reason why is because the Yoni loves when her lover is present with her. Then she opens like a beautiful feminine flower. This is the ultimate of connecting deeper to your femininity.
- Brings Youth to Your Face!
Apparently, the internal tone of your vaginal walls is directly related to the collagen production and tone of your face. Can you believe it!
Here is a link to an article worth reading about how Kundalini Yoga can keep your face looking young. It touches on this concept. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-28864/the-leader-of-las-yoga-scene-says-kundalini-can-change-the-shape-of-your-face.html
Though I haven’t found any medical proof, YET, to substantiate this statement, it is a motivator for me to keep doing my Yoni Yoga! With all the benefits the jade egg practice already provides, if, in addition, it helps me to maintain a youthful face, I am all for it. I don’t need scientific proof. My teacher who has been deeply dedicated to the jade egg practices for years is in her 40’s and she looks absolutely radiant. People have told me that I look younger than my age too. So I know yoga and Yoni yoga have definitely kept me looking younger than I otherwise would look.
Naomi Wolf, a Yale graduate and former political advisor to Al Gore and Bill Clinton, wrote in her book titled “Vagina” about the direct connection of the vagina to the brain and even to women’s confidence. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/sep/08/brain-science-vagina-heralds-sexual-revolution The face is not that far off so it would stand to reason that the health and vitality of your vaginal walls and the radiance of your face could very well be connected.
5. Increases Orgasmic Response
And the last point I would like to make about the wonderful ways the jade egg will change your life is that it will definitely increase your orgasmic pleasure. This is something so important for women. Many women have are challenged even to have an orgasm. Many women hold shame in this area of their bodies and there only experience of orgasm is what I refer to as a “genital hiccup.”
It is time for you and all women to realize, pleasure, and experiencing more of it, is the path to empowerment for you.
Often when we speak about the bottom of the body we refer to it as the pelvic floor. The truth is, the bottom of your body is nowhere near flat. At the bottom of your body is more of a hammock type configuration of musculature that holds your internal organs in, including your sex organs. Your pelvic muscles play a huge role in your body’s overall structural support. Just like a house needs a foundation, your body needs a strong foundation too. This keeps you feeling stable, centered and relaxed.
The best part is that these muscles are the muscles that contract when you have an orgasm. Using the jade egg or crystal egg increases the strength and tone of the muscles directly involved in orgasmic contractions. What this means to you, is way more pleasure. Simply wearing the egg will strengthen the muscles. Doing the practices will enhance your pleasure even more.
I call the pelvic floor muscles your love muscles. When they are relaxed, toned, free of shame and can fully contract and expand, you become an amazing, heart centered, authentically empowered and sensually alive woman.
Remember, your female anatomy is your Yoni or your sacred space. Learn how to take good care of her. Change the type of relationship you have with her. Give her healing energy. Strengthen her so that you can experience more pleasure. And who knows, all the while, become younger looking because of it.
