What Does Yoni Mean? It’s Important For Women To Know

What does Yoni mean and why is it important for women to know the meaning? It’s important for men to know the meaning too however it’s up to us, as women, to first embrace our Yonis.

The Definition of Yoni –

What does Yoni mean?

Yoni is the Sanskrit word for female genitalia. The word Yoni translated means “Sacred Space.” This is a term used to bring more honor and reverence to a woman’s womb and genitalia.

The Importance of the Word Yoni

Is the word Yoni new to you? This word is important for every woman to know. When I refer to a woman’s genitalia or female anatomy I always use the word Yoni.

Because Yoni means “Sacred Space” it’s a word that’s absolutely lovely! And depicts how women should hold their female anatomy… in high regard. It’s neither nasty nor clinical. It sounds normal and natural and most of all the definition of it is honoring to your female genitalia.

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. Simply making this one change will help you to honor and love your feminine side.

When you use the word Yoni it refers to the whole of your female anatomy. Words are powerful. Using this word helps you to claim the whole of your femininity as sacred.

What Does Yoni Mean For YOU?

What type of relationship do you have with your female genitalia? Take a moment to think about it. Our culture is saturated with sexual shame. And women have often been the target and scapegoat for the sexual shame that exists in our culture.

To claim your power as a woman does not mean to be like a man. It’s really to own the sacredness of who you are as a woman. And really knowing deep inside (literally) that you hold something very healing, mystical, and sacred between your legs. The fact that women give birth to a whole new human being shows the power that’s held within us.

What does Yoni mean can become more clear when you embrace the word and start using it in your day-to-day vocabulary. When talking about your female anatomy (and I suggest you do that regularly) use the word Yoni. Don’t keep her hidden or shamed.

Refer to “her” as something special and precious. Your Yoni is not to be taken casually or put in the background…, especially in your intimate relationship. Your Yoni should be upfront and center stage in your intimate relationship.

I want to encourage you to hold your Yoni in reverence. Give her space and a place to be held as such in your own actions and behaviors regarding “her.”

I think our society is taking a long time to learn that and my teachings are all about embodying this sacredness of our womanhood. And it starts with you claiming the sacredness of the deepest part of you… your Yoni.

Men play a part also. They too have a beautiful name for their genitalia.

The Masculine Counterpart to Yoni

What does Yoni mean becomes very important because as you claim the sacredness of your female anatomy you’ll attract in a more conscious lover. And the reason is that he’ll have a Lingam.

What does Lingam Mean?

Lingam is the Sanskrit word for male genitalia. Translated it means – Wand of Light.

And a wand of light is exactly what women need in order to awaken their divine feminine and creative healing force onto the planet. Are you putting up with an unconscious lover? It’s affecting your ability to evolve.

What women have had are swords instead of wands of light. A sword that has raped, pillaged, impregnated and abandoned. We carry this historical memory in the tissues of our Yoni. As women claim their sacred space we’ll see a different world. As we empower our younger women we empower the world.

Attract A Wand of Light

Your sexuality creates your reality. When you hold your sexuality as sacred and have more discernment with how you express it you’ll become more empowered. This is the work we all, both men and women, need to be doing however statistics show that when you empower women you empower the whole community.

So women, claim your sacred space. Learn how to use your feminine energy to connect with a man in an empowering way. And when you do you’ll attract to you a man with a Wand of Light…. a magical mystical healing device.

Are you ready to attract a man with a Wand of Light?
