Let’s talk about an amazing part of the feminine body, an amazing gift that the Universe has given us – the Yoni.
Yoni is the Sanskrit name for female genitalia.
It also means the sacred temple, the gateway to the Universe and the source.
When we hear people speak about feminine empowerment, there are so many concepts surrounding it, but not many people speak about the relationship of a woman to her vulva, her vagina, her yoni.
I strongly believe that that’s where feminine empowerment should start.
So many women are completely disconnected from their yoni.
Yoni has been shamed for centuries. She was labeled as that stinky, ugly, disgusting area “down there”. The names that people use to refer to vulvas are either childish words like “pipi or wowo” or slang like “cockpocket”.
The words “pussy” or “cunt” are some of the most straightforward and direct names there are, and I personally actually like to use these words. But many people use them in a disempowering context.
Many yonis hardly ever receive any loving touch… And even fewer receive praise or are looked at with awe and admiration…
Most yonis are not appreciated for the magical and mystical place they really are.
Without that, our yonis fall asleep. Or sometimes they even fall into a coma.
It is so crucial for all women to develop a profound and deep relationship with their yoni. This is how we can own our power. This is how we can access our deepest wisdom and intuition.
Yoni is a place from where all life originated.
In tantra and taoism it is referred to as a cosmic gate through which we all came here. It is the most feminine part of our body. The most receptive, the most sensitive… It is such a mystical, mysterious, powerful and beautiful place.
If we want to establish a deep connection with the feminine, yoni is the place where we should start.
Once there is this deep connection with the yoni, we start listening to her… And believe me there are things she has to say.
It’s pretty magical, really. For example, as the most receptive part of our being, our yoni can give us very clear signals of whether a relationship with someone is good for us or not. I have plenty of examples of that in my day to day life.
And it is not about being in a relationship. A relationship with a partner who truly loves and worships our yoni can be very empowering.
But it is entirely up to us to learn to love and honor this sacred place of our body. We need to develop a relationship with our yoni, give her plenty of attention and love daily.
There are a few amazing tools and practices we can get into to begin this process of awakening of our yoni. For example, yoni massage and the yoni egg practice.
I find this subject so important and I really wish that each and every woman would fall in love with her yoni, and that’s why I developed a free crash course called Yoni Yoga.
