For all of the myriad of amazing physical benefits that can be obtained by using a Jade Egg – the benefits the majority of women I talk to seem to most want to hear about are the deeper, more fundamental ones – the ones concerning empowerment and connection to our true sensual/sexual nature… So, in answer to the question “What does it mean to be a truly empowered woman and step into our femininity?” I offer the following insights (with credit to the teachings of Saida Desilets, from whom I have learned so much on this journey so far)….
Virgin vs Prostitute
Due to the present nature of the world that we live in, we have seemingly grown up with 2 choices as to how to express our feminine essence – either the archetypal virgin or prostitute. But there is a world in between these 2 archetypes that is full of radiant, vibrant, confident, sexually open, conscious women. Unfortunately, most of us are either not used to living there very often – or don’t even know it exists – due to the fact that expressing our feminine essence in an empowered way is generally greeted with hostility and violence by the majority of society. So it simply does not feel “safe”or “acceptable” for us to express ourselves in such a way and tends to get socially conditioned out of us at an early age. This either then leads to suppression of our sensuality and sexuality – or outward misuse and misdirection of the same. Neither choice is empowered nor in alignment with our true feminine nature.
The problem with shutting down/distorting our sensuality in this way is that we also say “no” or distort the rest of life too… and needless to say that is not a way of living that is going to bring about the unlimited joy and pleasure that we are capable of experiencing whilst here in our physical bodies – and that is, in fact, our birthright.
And when we do start to live in alignment with our true feminine nature, we can certainly expect doing so to “create waves” in the world. As we step into our true feminine power and natural wildness, we will naturally elicit a reaction from the world around us – which could be negative or positive, depending on the immediate environment we find ourselves in. The beauty of having such an experience lies in being able to navigate whatever reaction we elicit with grace, ease and joy – thus embracing all responses to our awakened feminine power as a natural response in a world so devoid of such true embodiment.
Trusting Our True Femininity
Cultivating an attitude to life that makes choosing love, life, freedom and happiness – regardless of current conditions – as our focused and disciplined “modus operandi” is an absolutely fundamental part to learning to live life as an empowered woman (or man, for that matter). And one that can then be supported by various practices and philosophies – including the Jade Egg practice – that help us to understand our innate feminine essence and to allow our sensual selves to emerge. We learn to trust and have faith in ourselves again – and, in doing so, to nurture those aspects of our bodies, minds and spirits that are life-giving at their core.
The Jade Egg – Multi-Faceted Healing Tool
Regular use of a Jade Egg will help bring about change and awakening on all levels – physical (toning, suppleness and dexterity); emotional (healing past trauma); mental (removing limiting or damaging beliefs and patterns and replacing them with life-enhancing ones) and spiritual (discovering and exploring the truth of who we are – which is unique for everyone). There are some amazing teachers who are able to guide us through this multi-faceted process and I would urge you to seek them out. You can find some of them listed on the Resources page of my website (http://yonieggs.co.za/resources) … and many more that I have no doubt your own innate erotic intelligence will lead you to… in its own unique and perfect manner and timing.
Opening up our sensuality – the way we perceive the world through all our senses – is vital to this whole process. We need to get back in touch with and fine-tune our senses, thus increasing our capacity for experiencing pleasure and, from there, to naturally awaken our true sexuality. Understanding that it is totally within our power to do just this and then giving ourselves permission to do so is key to this whole beautiful journey – and, for many women at least, often a very new concept. Coming home to ourselves in this way though, we find that we are enlivened, nourished, inspired and comforted. “Home” indeed.
The Power of Our Sexuality
There is such amazing healing and creativity that occurs when we align ourselves with our true feminine nature. Our sexuality (and this applies to both sexes) is an incredibly powerful resource when understood and used correctly and by learning to heal the rift between our hearts and our essential sexual nature we not only heal the past but also create infinite beauty, joy and delight in all other areas of our lives too ♥
