One of my favourite aspects of the yoni egg practice is its ability to help us cleanse our bodies of old, stuck emotions or memories that no longer serve us.
This can be the memory of a previous lover or toxic relationship – or it can be any kind of traumatic experience we may be holding on to. Using the egg like this is so useful for difficult break-ups or for getting over someone or for any kind of sexual abuse or trauma.
It is also useful for cleansing memories of those partners with whom you may have had a great relationship and have many happy memories of – in order to move on with your life in a super-charged, fresh way. You can even use this type of cleansing to cleanse the energy of your current partner out of your body, as doing so helps create more sexual polarity and, therefore, greater passion between you.
Our vaginas hold a lot of energy – they are designed to draw things into themselves and this means that energetic residues and emotions related to past lovers or events can easily get stuck here.
How does this work?
The idea with using a yoni egg in order to perform such an energetic cleanse is two-fold. First of all, it connects you to your sexuality by turning you on – and this makes any sexual memories and emotions much easier to access. Secondly, as the egg is made of crystal, it acts as an absorbent sponge – this is how crystals work, by absorbing the energies of the environment around them – which can then be cleansed out of the egg by placing it outside or on a windowsill at full moon, or by giving it a (good quality) salt bath (either into saltwater, or directly into a bowl of salt).
It’s important to note here that cleansing our sexual memories/emotions in this way by no means implies that we have to think of our ex-lovers as being toxic (although in relationship to us, they might have been!). It’s just a process that enables us to make a fresh start and brings us up to speed in the present moment, ready to experience more sexual pleasure and connection, both with ourselves and with others.
Clear out and move on!
Whatever or whoever we decide to cleanse, we need to set a clear intention to do so before we begin. If wanting to cleanse past lovers, you might want to start with the most recent one and work your way backwards from there. Ditto for any traumatic events. Some people or events may take more clearing than others. Stick with it. Because once the energy is cleared you also have a chance to forgive anything about the person or event that you feel you want to (including forgiving yourself) – and also to appreciate anything too.
All experiences in this life – even if they are not happy ones – are there to serve us, so there is ALWAYS a gift in them, always something to appreciate and learn. And releasing bad feelings and appreciating positive aspects around a person or event frees us up to use our energy to create whatever we want as we move forward from here.
This type of cleansing also helps us to melt any hardness we may have built around our hearts in response to this person/experience. We are also able to cut any cords that still bind us to our past lover/the event so that we are not unconsciously bound to the past and can be more fully present in this moment.
In my upcoming Yoni Vitality online course, I will be including a meditation and yoni egg cleansing practice that you can use in order to put these ideas into practice. Stay tuned!
