My Discovery of Transformation from a Yoni Egg Practice

oni egg: a vagina’s crystal companion for rejuvenated connection, deep healing, better orgasms, more creativity, and a general Goddess power surge. Though there is no mention in The Feminine Mystique of the power of this ancient practice, it has been used by women for over a millennia, and it is now seeing a huge resurgence in the Now Age.

We women are voraciously seeking a deeper connection to our bodies. Many alternative and sustainable menstrual products to traditional pads and tampons are becoming wildly popular including menstrual cups, sponges, and free bleeding with special panties.

Personally, I’ve been using a menstrual cup in addition to Thinx panites for 3 years now and it has totally transformed the way I see, interact with, and manage my monthly flow. Seeing the sacred blood first-hand was humbling and mind-blowing at first. I couldn’t believe that we are encouraged to be so disconnected from this monthly miracle to the point that we live in shame of even admitting that we are bleeding—and if you happen to leak and stain your clothes, fuggetabout it! But that’s a whole other article in itself.

When I became very comfortable with the intimacy required of using the menstrual cup, I was naturally and intuitively drawn to the mystique of the ancient yoni egg practice.

What is a yoni egg?

Yoni Egg

A yoni egg is traditionally a nephrite jade crystal (but you can find just about any crystal these days) carved in the shape of an egg, sometimes with a drilled hole to assist in the removal of the egg from the vagina, in varying sizes. This practice has been performed by women for thousands of years, originating in ancient China, for self-empowerment, self-love, to heal from sexual trauma, strengthen the muscles and sex organs, and (yay for us!) improve vaginal sex and the female orgasm.

Historically, the female reproductive system and sexual organs were revered as life givers and miracle makers. A few pumps, a few months, and then a human is born into the world.

Who wouldn’t consider that to be magic?

It is only in the past few centuries that our sexual prowess and power was demonized by the patriarchy by their desire to regain power. But we are taking our power back as you can see in the many global movements and general resistance to patriarchal bullshit and bullying. The yoni egg could easily be attributed as an accomplice in this power resurgence. How, you ask? Let me tell you a story.

My Yoni, My Power, My Egg

Yoni Egg

I began using a yoni egg consistently early summer of 2017. I was in a weird place, fraught with uncertainty, misdirection, disconnection, and a general apathy towards my power. I had felt the curious and consistent call to the yoni egg practice for some time and was mystified about how it worked. It wasn’t until I was listening to an awesome podcast, That’s So Retrograde, at the airport waiting for my birthday flight to San Francisco for a girl’s trip.

As synchronicity would have it, two yoni masters and egg slangers (sisters, Kaylah and Kiana Reves, founders of The Tulip) were on air talking about this time-honored practice, its undeniable benefits, and how not-so-scary it was. As it was my birthday, I was in the mood for a self-treat, and I hadn’t bought myself a present yet (which I planned to do in SF). It was time. This was it. A true sign from the universe that I needed a crystal up in my yoni.

The wheels started turning, my body was tingling with buyer’s adrenaline, and my vagina might as well have taken my phone and bought the damn thing herself.

I was terrified when I pressed “buy.” This meant I had to actually do it. I had to actually stick this beautiful crystal in my vagina and … then what? Holy moly.

My love stone arrived with detailed instructions and, along with some additional research, I cleansed, charged, blessed, and popped in my shiny new friend. While the ceremony I performed was much more sensual, sexy, candle-lit, and silky (yes, I sleep with silk pillowcases cuz why not, and, wrinkles) than that description, but I’ll leave those bits to your imagination and keep that special moment to myself.

“So now what?” I thought, “Wait for my superpowers to come in? How long is this going to take? What am I even doing? How am I going to get this thing out? Oh Goddess, what have I gotten myself into?”

The first night I slept with my yoni egg inside me and took it out in the morning—which was an interesting and slightly terrifying process to say the least, but I eventually got the hang of it.

After a few days of sleeping with my yoni egg, I eventually got the courage to do some light yoga with my egg in. As I previously mentioned, I’d been using a menstrual cup for sometime at this point so my vaginal muscles were stronger than the average … errmm … pussy. Yoga was a success and I felt like a fucking empowered warrior Goddess. But then things started to get a bit freaky.

I had booked an appointment to go see a shaman for the first time—Andye Murphy, The Rock ‘n roll Shaman. During my session, I wanted to be as open, connected, and full of power as possible. And on a yoni egg high, I showed up plugged up with my nephrite jade yoni egg.

Holy shit. Holy shift.

My life literally turned on a dime. I don’t know if it was her, me, the egg, the universe, my spirit guides, or a completely collaborative effort, but I walked away from that session with different eyes and a freed soul.

This also initiated a massive breakdown, one of the most dramatic and deeply unraveling of my life. One of those overly dramatic fetal position breakdowns, on the floor, wailing, screaming, sweating, hyperventilating, swearing, and damning just about everyone and everything. And thank Goddess for that low point because it was a rocket ship launch UP from there.

I continued to practice with my yoni egg and eventually realized my orgasms were super intense. My intuition was heightened. My dreams were vivid and meaningful. My spirits were higher and I was sleeping like a baby. My senses were sharper and I was completely at ease and peaceful. I was told by friends that I was glowing and I felt, for maybe the first time in my life at the age of 31, like a real woman. I was vibrating with an ancient and buried essence that I had no idea existed but I had intuitively seen on the faces and in the powerful yet sensual movements of women I admire.

I had arrived. This was like a coming of age/coming out party and I was telling all my girlfriends about my yoni’s new friend and my personal revelations and transformations. I encouraged everyone to pop one in and try it out. I was hooked.

I soon realized that so many powerful, successful, aligned, and glowing women in my sphere as a soulpreneur also used this practice. I was on the brink of my own personal new frontier. But why weren’t more women talking about this when I couldn’t shut up about it? Why was no one in my immediate sphere urging me to stick a crystal up my hooha? What was the deal? Taboo? Shame? Secret society shit?

I landed on blaming the patriarchy (surprise, surprise) and vowed to spread my story far and wide so that if you are thinking of trying this practice, have never heard of it, or need some encouragement to get back into it, that I could be that person for you.

You will love your vagina. You will love your cycles. You will love loving on yourself. As the ladies of The Tulip say, “Loving your vagina is a revolution.”

But it doesn’t end here, I came to find out. There is a whole world of crystal tools for natural self-empowerment, self-healing, self-realization, and self-pleasure. There are herbal steam baths, massages, and spells for a healthy and happy vagina.

Let it be known: I am no expert, just a tantalized fan. Please do your own research in choosing an egg and starting this practice for yourself. There is an abundance of resources, books, and courses out there. And these days, you can find yoni eggs just about everywhere, from Free People to Amazon (woof!), but we highly encourage you to shop small and support your local Goddesses who are sustainably sourcing these beauties with love and intention to empower your pussy. Some recommendations include:

The Tulip (where I bought my nephrite jade yoni egg)
Aislinn Walton, Moon Root Healing
Yoni Crystals

To this day, I practice. Would it weird you out if I told you I wrote this with my yoni egg in? Ok, that’s a lie. But in hindsight, why the fuck didn’t I do that!? Maybe the fact that I’m in a coffee shop in downtown Denver would actually make that scenario quite weird.

Anyways, ladies, you gotta try it. Guys, get your woman one and buckle up.

Power to the pussy!
