9 Effective Tips to Manage Chronic Pain

Published

on

chronic pain tips image

Chronic pain is basically any pain that has a duration of 3-6 months and could extend much further. A popular alternative definition for chronic pain states: involving no arbitrarily fixed duration. It is “pain that extends beyond the expected period of healing”.

Epidemiological studies have found that 10.1% to 55.2% of people in various countries live their lives trying to manage their chronic pain.

I’ve recently dealt with a 2 year battle of sciatic nerve pain stemming from a pinched nerve caused by my L5/S1 disc herniating out onto my sciatic nerve, sending shooting, searing hot, cripplingly demoralizing pain from my lower back all the way down my right leg, leaving me all but bedridden.

Obviously, there are different levels, degrees, and types of pain. Out of all the different types that I’ve experienced in my life, including birthing labor pains, this was the worst!

Unfortunately, western medicine usually treats the symptoms of the issue but rarely delves into dealing with the root of the issue.

There is a common practice in western medicine to treat pain with opiates, which has caused an opiate epidemic. Opiates are highly addictive, causing internal damage to otherwise healthy organs and they don’t actually fix the root issue. In my experience, I have found one medical professional after the next that wanted to prescribe pain meds but did not have a lot to offer in the way of getting to the root of my issue. While you’re experiencing chronic pain, it can be a daunting and painful challenge just getting to and from doctors offices, having imaging done and getting little to no answers, only to leave with yet another prescription that can only barely alleviate the pain.

This journey took me on an in-depth discovery of myself, the medical community, and ways to effectively manage chronic pain. I’m going to share with you a recipe of practices that I created for myself to manage my pain.

1. Stay Away from Opiates

I myself chose not to take opiates to relieve my pain. I did not want to add insult to injury and create yet even more illness from taking addictive pain meds.

Opiates include a variety of drugs ranging from legal drugs such as fentanyl, codeine, and morphine, to illegal drugs such as heroin. The one thing they all have in common is the ability to depress or slow down the body’s central nervous system.

There are three classifications of opiates:

The first group contains naturally occurring opium derivatives including morphine.

The second group contains partially synthetic derivatives of morphine, called opioid drugs such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone.

The third group contains synthetic compounds like Fentanyl, alfentanil, levorphanol, Meperidine, methadone, codeine, and Propoxyphene.

These drugs only mask the root of the issue, they have harmful side effects, and will NOT cure the root cause.

Pain is your bodies way of communicating with you and where you need to focus your attention. It’s an alarm to get you to the root of the problem.

Opiate usage can dull and numb the senses, keep you unaware of your true pain levels and how to manage it.

If you do have to take them, moderate and minimize: use only when the pain is unbearable.

Instead, I chose pharmaceutical grade THC and CBD oils and tinctures that do not have addictive qualities. Thankfully there has been a surge of new information surrounding medical cannabis, CBD oils, and tinctures along with passionate individuals and companies that are creating effective and safe ratios to treat and relieve chronic pain and inflammation.

2. Meditation and Affirmations

Meditation is one of the most important practices that you can learn to assist you in bringing the intensity of your pain down, to calm the nervous system, and to center yourself.

A calm mind is a powerful pain reliever.

For more in-depth information on how to begin your practice of meditation read Katya’s article “Meditations For Beginners: Best Ways To Start Your Practice”

Learning to breathe into your pain, to let go and surrender, will be one of your best tools.

It takes presence, courage, commitment, and consistency to evolve your practice, but you will notice a big difference in your ability to manage your pain.

Daily affirmations of healing are a must.

Visualize and verbalize your vibrant health. Only speak healing words into yourself, speak as if you are already healed. See yourself doing the things you want to do, and adopt a belief that it’s on the way.

Discouragement will come up a lot when you’re feeling awful and experiencing debilitating pain, so you have to be disciplined in your desire to heal.

Allow yourself to feel discouraged as you should, considering the pain, but don’t wallow in it. Be willing to pick yourself back up and move forward.

A wonderful book on healing is “You can Heal your Life” by Louise Hay.

3. Take the Initiative

What exactly does this mean? It means not leaving the responsibility of your healing and health in the hands of medical practitioners. You have to take control of your destiny, of your healing, of your well being. No one is going to come and wave a magic wand and end the misery. You have to dig yourself out.

You are alone with your pain, people can love and be supportive in your journey but it’s you who has to endure and manage your pain. You have to will yourself healthy, you have to do the “work” if that means physical therapy, show up EVERY single time, even when you don’t feel like it. Even if that means minimizing your activity and resting, do it. If that means eating healthy foods to assist your body in healing, give up the junk. And if that means asking and allowing others to care for you, be vulnerable and ask. It’s about balancing your inner will to heal and your outer practical steps towards that healing.

One thing about being in long extended periods of pain with limited mobility, you will have to become comfortable being vulnerable.

Don’t expect anyone to make it better for you, make it better for yourself!

4. Diet, Mobility, and Exercise

Our bodies are divinely created to endure immense levels of trauma and injury. With that being said, it’s vital to feed yourself the proper nutrition to aid in your healing. Hydration is number one, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is the cause for the majority of health issues today. Drink at least an ounce of water for every pound you weigh. Make sure you are choosy about your water quality and the container that holds your water. Glass being the ideal receptacle and make sure you are praying into your water. Water has consciousness and responds to your positive intentions. Positive intentions spoken into your food and water changes the molecular makeup.

For more education on this see Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work. Here’s a snippet of an experiment where he proves this.

Eat live, fresh, organically sourced food. Lots of green foods, which are filled with chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll is a green pigment present in plants which facilitates the absorbtion of light from the sun. Consuming chlorophyll from vegetal sources can help with blood detoxification, boosts energy naturally, fights fatigue and assists in the prevention of cancer.

Eat foods that will support your vital life force energy: veggies, fruits, live, whole organic foods.

Try to avoid dairy products, which increase inflammation in the body.

Avoid caffeine. Caffeine exhausts the nervous system and can decrease your pain threshold, making the nervous system more alert to pain.

Take supplements!

Do the research, expand your knowledge, seek alternative methods and be consistent.

A few really good ones to mention are Curamin: a combination of curcumin (It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric, a member of the ginger family) and boswellia (also known as Indian Frankincense. Resin made from boswellia extract has been used for centuries in Asian and African folk medicine. It’s believed to treat chronic inflammatory illnesses, as well as a number of other health conditions). When curcumin and boswellia are combined, the boswellia increases the absorption rate of the anti-inflammatory compounds in the curcumin.

Most illness and pain is derived from inflammation in the body.

Magnesium is vital even if you are not suffering from chronic pain, but especially when you are experiencing high levels of inflammation. Magnesium is a powerful pain-relieving mineral. In fact, some researchers believe this mineral holds the key to resolving many types of chronic pain and most people are deficient in magnesium.

In the body, magnesium converts vitamin D, which the body needs to take advantage of bone-strengthening calcium – into a form that it can use efficiently.

Be as active as you can be, without adding extra pain to yourself. Movement will be your friend. Even if it’s difficult and painful, movement is a huge step forward from staying stagnant and sedentary.

Even small attempts towards keeping active will be beneficial.

5. Salt Bath’s

Angela Fitts Salt Bath Image

I can’t say enough about this wonderful, easy practice. During my intense period of chronic pain, I literally took 2-3 hot, epsom salt baths a day! First off it takes the weight of gravity off and allows you to relax your muscles. The salt pulls out toxins and the heat aides in pure relaxation and lightens muscle tension. My baths meant everything to me. They help soothe tremendously.

6. Use Alternative, Holistic Pain Therapies

We are so fortunate to have access to alternative health practitioners: massage, essential oils, acupuncture, reiki, sound healing, network spinal analysis (Gentle precise touch to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies).

Create a cocktail of alternative and conventional care that is personalized and geared toward your health condition. Be open to researching and seeking out qualified practitioners that can assist in your journey to healing.

Conventional medicine is a wonderful and life-saving resource, not to be discounted by any means. Using discernment when to move forward in exploring alternative options is key. Or vice versa knowing when to seek conventional medicine when alternative options you’ve sought aren’t providing long-term relief.

We’ve created so much resistance around the word “alternative” because somehow that translates to negating traditional medical practices. I found that it’s vital to be open, educated and willing to explore and experiment with newer therapies available. When you are suffering debilitating chronic pain and illness you have to be willing to try. When you’ve exhausted traditional western medicine and it isn’t helping, you have to be willing to expand your own practice, remove resistances and actively seek those who are truly informed about “alternative” therapy and healing modalities.

There is most certainly a need to use discernment, same thing in the case of exhausting alternative therapies you need to know when it’s time to seek conventional medicine.

I tried to heal myself naturally first through noninvasive practices, but as time went on I sought out a neurosurgeon and turns out I did indeed need surgery to fix my injury. I don’t regret the path I took at all, the organic, alternative therapies I did in the interim were not in vain. It kept me physically strong and prepared me for surgery and allowed me a speedy recovery. I believe surgery should always be a last resort.

7. Be your own Cheerleader

Be your own Cheerleader Image

When experiencing day in and day out extreme pain you have to become your own best friend, your own cheerleader and your own voice of encouragement.

It’s wonderful to have family and friends encouraging you and sending beautiful blessings and intentions, but unfortunately, when you’re dealing with chronic pain specifically, you will find that most of your time is spent alone. You’re going to have to find that inner voice that speaks loudly to your healing and well being.

You will cry, you will ache, you will feel like giving up, you will be confused, you will be exhausted, you will be discouraged, you will be in agony and you will be enraged and every single expression is worthy of being felt and heard.

You mustn’t suppress any of it. When you’re done feeling it, let it pass and move into being proactive about healing.

Look at others powerful testimonies of healing to encourage you. Surround yourself with pleasant things, stay as active as you can, fill your time with positive reading, and reflections. Get to know yourself, enjoy your own company. Find healthy outlets to keep your mind occupied: writing, reading, researching, crafts, arts, music, whatever your personal interests are.

8. Practice Gratitude and Compassion towards yourself

Gratitude Compassion Practice Image

Practicing daily gratitude is essential. When you are experiencing intense pain, it’s not going be easy to practice. Even on your worst days it’s more important than ever to stay mindful, and saturate yourself in gratitude, this is going to lift your mood, remind you of all the blessings you still have and that you will eventually heal and it keeps your heart open and content.

Taking a huge dose of gratitude the moment you wake up every morning will affirm your vibration and transmute victim mentality. Be gentle, loving, soft, nurturing and compassionate with yourself, don’t wait for others to give you this, do it for yourself.

9. Get as much quality sleep as possible

Sleeping is essential to healing. When you’re in extreme pain, it’s very difficult to sleep. Drink chamomile tea before bed, take a hot bath with lavender oil, take melatonin, make sure your bedding is always clean and that you have proper pillows and body alignment for sleeping.

Wear comfortable sleepwear or sleep nude for optimal sleep. Do breathing exercises before bed to calm the nervous system. Make sure your room is dark, light can be disruptive. Turn off all gadgets ie: tv, phones, computers, and tablets. Hope for a better tomorrow and be grateful you got through your day.

The Bottom Line

Healing is not linear, some days will be better than others. Try not to get discouraged on the tougher days, know that better days are ahead of you.

You can heal, you can manage your pain without becoming addicted to harmful drugs and you can be your own advocate, it’s all about not giving over your power solely to the medical community. Your healing is your responsibility and that should empower you.

Happy healing, I hope these tips encourage you to start an optimistic approach to overcoming your chronic pain. Remember that information is just information, concepts floating around until you actually put things into practice. No one can do it for you but you!

Do You Believe In Plant Spirit Medicine? This Is Flower Essence Therapy Explained

Published

on

flower essence therapy image

Flowers are beautiful. And in their beauty lies immense healing and rejuvenation benefits. Flower essence therapy is an ancient technique used to harness these benefits. Did you know that this practice dates back to over 3000 years ago in Egypt? In this article, I will shed more light on flower essence therapy, the commonly used flowers, and their benefits.

What is Flower Essence Therapy?

Flower blossoms have subtle energy, which when harnessed (via their essences) resonates with your body to unblock patterns that hinder you from enjoying your daily life. Just like sound therapy, which uses tuning forks to resonate your chi energies, flower essence has unique alchemy and energy, which respond differently in every person.

Similarly, each flower contains different energy, and it is, therefore, important to understand which essence to use for different situations. You can extract the essence at home or buy some from a store. The store-bought essence is also derived from living flowers. However, they add Brandy to stabilize it.

Commonly Used Flowers

hibiscus flower image

  • Lemon flower, plucked from a lemon tree, helps with clarity. It will sharpen your focus by clearing any mental fog.
  • Passionflower, plucked from the passion fruit tree, connects us with a divine path by uniting our spiritual realm.
  • Grape hyacinth eases and relieves stress related to emotional and physical trauma.
  • Hibiscus, my favorite flower essence, arouses your passion by supporting sacral and root chakras. As a result, your sexual and reproductive energy is stimulated.
  • Nasturtium, the orange flower, works on your mental barriers and reconnects your body’s chakras.

This list is not even half of the options available to you. But I find my flower essence therapy complete with these five.

What to Expect During a Flower Essence Therapy Session

First, I need you to understand that flower essence therapy works by harnessing Plant Spirit Medicine and transforming your body through consciousness. The therapist will start by performing a cleansing ritual on herself. This removes any negative energy she might have from being passed on to you. You will then take a quick questionnaire for her to decide the essence you need for your situation.

During the question-answer session, the therapist will provoke your deepest emotions. This is how we apply conscious healing. After the emotional breakdown, you’ll focus on meditation with the help of a few drops of flower essence to help you calm down even further and release any remaining discomfort or negative signals.

When your session is over (it usually lasts an hour or so), you can go back home, but you need to follow up with routine therapy sessions at home for at least 3 months. These sessions involve deep meditation using a few drops of the flower essences. With time, you will notice a significant change in your emotional choices and behavioral adaptations.

The Benefits of Flower Essence Therapy

flower essence therapy benefits image

Flower essence therapy can treat mild to moderate depression. There are different flowers used to address anxiety, the impact of stress reactions, depression, fear, worry, resentment, and similar emotional turmoil. All these situations result in depression. The treatment was introduced by Dr. Batch in his book Heal Thyself. And today, several therapists have reported success in their treatment.

The therapy can also treat chronic ailments such as chronic pain. Because of its holistic approach, flower essence therapy alleviates emotional, spiritual, and mental conditions directly.

The essence is an alternative distraction from drug addictions – both prescription drugs and illegal drug abuse.

This therapy makes you aware of your Chakra System. With time, you understand and appreciate how your energetic centers work.

You achieve self-love once you restore your connection to your higher self.

Your spirit connects deeper with your body. You become free, and your life becomes more enjoyable.

Despite all these proven benefits, you need to consult with a certified medical practitioner before embarking on flower essence therapy as an alternative treatment for serious medical conditions.

How is Flower Essence Prepared?

Flower Essence Image

Flower essences are a dilute infusion of the fresh flower blossoms. Please note that not all flowers can create the therapeutic essence. Very early in the morning, handpick the specific flowers once they attain full bloom. The reason we pick these flowers in the morning and not at any other time of the day is that in the morning the blossoms are full of dew.

After picking, place the flowers on a surface of a clear glass bowl filled with fresh, clean water. Then you can choose to either expose them to direct sunlight for 3 hours or boil them for 30 minutes. The idea is to infuse the water with flower juices.

Now collect this water and preserve it with brandy. For every pint of flower-infused water, you add one pint of brandy (one-to-one ratio). We call this the mother essence. Commercially, the mother essence is further diluted with alcohol using 0.2% ratio to now produce flower essence stock.

They further dilute the stock before packaging for sale. You might be thinking this is already too dilute. Well, it is. However, remember that flower essence therapy is about not only the essences but also more of holistic therapy. We are, therefore, not interested in the concentration of the flowers but rather tapping into the subtle energy they contain.

Commonly Asked Questions and Answers

questions and answers image

Is flower essence therapy similar to aromatherapy?

No. Aromatherapy uses scent while flower essences don’t carry any scent. In fact, you administer flower essence using a mist sprayer or eyedroppers. We simply Harness the energy they contain.

Who Discovered Flower Essence?

Dr. Bach is the father of flower essences because of his famous 38 flowers remedies.

Are Flower essences similar to essential oils?

No, they are not. Essential oils cure the physical body while flower essences treat the psychological (emotional) issues. However, it is advisable to use the two simultaneously. They complement each other well.

How many flowers do I need to extract enough essence?

You just need one flower. Unlike essential oils that require a lot of plant material, you need only one flower to make an essence.

In Conclusion

Flower essence therapy does not focus on specific medical symptoms like depression or a backache, for example. Instead, the therapists delve in your spiritual, mental, and emotional imbalance for holistic healing. The essences then restore any imbalance as you consciously change your emotional and mental patterns.

In a nutshell, flower essence therapy repairs trauma, balances energy at all levels and moods, connects you to the natural world energies (which gives you intuitive wisdom), and changes obsolete behavior.

7 Segments Of the Avatar: Discover Your Physical Blocks

Published

on

Physical Blocks Image

Our avatar (or body) can be divided into 7 main segments (zones) in terms of body-oriented therapy. Each of these segments may contain physical blocks that interfere with the natural movement of energies, which over time will necessarily lead to problems on the physical plane.

The blocks can be manifested in two forms:

1. very tense muscles
2. too relaxed muscles

In this article, I’m going to tell you about physical blocks in the seven main segments of the avatar: eye, jaw, throat, chest, diaphragmatic, abdominal, and pelvic blocks.

7 segments of the avatar graphics image

Physical Blocks in the Eye Segment

This segment is represented by the scalp muscles and oculomotor muscles. We can get blocks in our eye segments because of the so-called social fears which include a fear of hearing and/or seeing an assessment about yourself from other people; fear of being offended by another person; fear of making a mistake.

eye blocks image

Externally, the blocks in the eye segment may be formed for the following reasons:

  1. strong and consistent wrinkling of the forehead during a conversation;
  2. “surprised” raising eyebrows and making wide-open “naive” eyes;
  3. abnormally moving eyes;
  4. abnormally still look;
  5. severe frowning with the formation of a permanent wrinkle between the eyebrows.

When you have physical blocks in the eye segment you may feel

  1. pain in the eyes (since the vessels that feed the eyes are chronically “squeezed”);
  2. complaint of headaches (due to excessive tension of the eye muscles);
  3. difficulty crying (as markedly an abnormal state);
  4. conversely, constant tearfulness (as markedly an abnormal state)

Physical Blocks In the Jaw Segment

This segment is represented by the muscles of your chin, the lower part of your neck, and the upper part of your throat.

The blocks in the jaw segment can be caused by trying to block weeping, crying, and anger. In other words, these blocks can be formed when you don’s allow yourself to express your true feelings out loud.

jaw blocks image

Externally, the blocks in the jaw segment may be formed for the following reasons:

  1. addiction to chewing gum;
  2. permanently clenched jaws;
  3. constantly drooping lower jaw;
  4. trouble expressing out loud all feelings

Physical Blocks In the Throat Segment

These blocks are located in your tongue and neck muscles.

The blocks in the jaw segment can be caused by your inability (by not allowing yourself) to cry, to shout loudly in a loud voice, to express your true emotions, and resentment.

As a rule, this block does not exist by itself but goes “along” with the block in the jaw segment.

throat blocks image

When you have physical blocks in the throat segment you may have:

  1. a constant neurotic cough, not caused by any infections;
  2. your voice is too quiet, the habit of involuntary gesture;
  3. you have a habit to hold your hand on the throat as if hugging it;
  4. frequent and involuntary swallowing (the result of feeling like there is something in your throat).

Physical Blocks in the Thoracic Segment

The thoracic segment is one of the two most important segments responsible for our discomfort in this world (the second, actually — pelvic).

kundalini awakening symptoms chest pain image

These blocks are located in:

  1. the broad chest muscles;
  2. the chest muscles;
  3. the muscles of the shoulder blades;
  4. the shoulders’ muscles;
  5. the muscles of the arms.

Blocks in this segment most of all spoil our posture. In general, a person who has this kind of block doesn’t look happy.

These blocks appear when you don’t allow yourself to be passionate and to express your feelings openly. It can touch different aspects: sorrow, love, jealousy, the ability to get involved, the ability to follow your heart and live your dreams, etc.

These signs indicate that you have blocks in your thoracic segment:

  1. breathing problems;
  2. your hands are too cold, or too wet, or you always hold your hands in your pockets;
  3. abnormal position of your shoulders: they either permanently raised, or lowered limp;
  4. a protruding or “depressed” chest;
  5. the inflexibility of the body (for example, instead of just turning your head you have to turn your whole body because of the inflexibility of your neck);
  6. the tendency to dress in several layers of clothing, however always unbuttoned.

If you have blocks in your thoracic segment you may experience pain in the shoulders, sweating of the palms and breathing problems (lack of air).

The best healing for these blocks – any breathing exercises. You need to learn how “to Live, breathing deeply.”

Physical Blocks in the Diaphragm Segment

These blocks cover the muscles of the diaphragm itself, the solar plexus and those organs that are located in this zone. The diaphragm blocks are very similar to the chest blocks. These blocks also have such external signs as inflexibility of the body and breathing difficulties. But the reasons for the formation of physical blocks in the diaphragm segment are quite different and even unique.

diaphragm blocks Image

The blocks in the diaphragm segment are formed as a result of the blocking your feelings of disgust. Imagine being forced to eat a worm or kiss a dead mouse. Visualize this situation in your mind. What muscles do you have tensed? Here it is – the block in the diaphragm in all its glory.

Well, now imagine that some people are forced to live and share a marital bed with a man whose smell and appearance makes them irresistible disgust. Chronic block in the diaphragm area is provided! Imagine another situation: a small child is forcibly stuffed with food, which causes him hysterical disgust. But his parents are forcing him to eat. And here he is choking, shoving into himself, let’s say, Brussel sprouts or springy particles of minced meat. This is how disgust and ability to vomit get formed in the diaphragm area.

Physical Blocks in the Abdominal Segment

These blocks cover the broad muscles of the abdomen, lower back and back.

The blocks on the back and waist form because of the carefully hidden fear that you will be attacked or caught doing something that you’re not supposed to do.

The blocks on the sides of your belly are caused by blocked emotions of anger and repressed hostility.

Abdominal image

These are the typical signs of the blocks in the abdominal segment:

  1. lack of energy;
  2. apathy;
  3. lethargy.

Physical Blocks in the Pelvic Segment

This is the most important and the largest segment. It includes all the muscles of our body. This is the place where our vital fears live (when our whole body feels the threat of life – imaginary or real). Moreover, this is the place where tightly blocked sexual arousal lives. If a person lives with the idea that to feel sexual desires is wrong he has a huge block in the pelvic segment.

These external signs show that you have physical blocks in the pelvic segment:

  1. unsteady walk on the half-bent legs – you think that there is something that threatens your life and you’re absolutely constrained in sex;
  2. tense unflexible legs (like Heron’s legs), half – bent knees you lose a strong connection with the earth and normal stability.

The best practice that helps to heal this block is grounding.

The Bottom Line

I would like to note: usually people have several blocks. It’s a very common thing that one block is more pronounced than the others.

To remove physical blocks you need to start getting involved in any kind of physical activities: physical exercises, yoga, dance, whatever you like the most. If you exercise your muscles constantly it will help you to remove your physical blocks.

In addition, I recommend you to study the information from this article on your knowledge about the chakras. It will help you to get more detailed information on the blocks of the body and the course of energy. By performing physical and energy practices in synthesis, you can achieve faster and better results in removing your blocks.

Yoni Yoga: A Life Changing Therapy for Women

Published

on

The Yoni is the Sanskrit word that defines the female genitals. It is both a spiritual and a sexual organ. Spiritually, it is a symbol of divine procreative energy and the root chakra for the woman. It is also the source of recreation for the human race. Yoni yoga is practiced to provide both spiritual and sexual healing through the Yoni.

What is Yoni Yoga?

Strong vaginal muscles improve the health of a woman and her sexual drive. Sometimes, yoni yoga involves the use of yoni eggs to meditate as you exercise the pelvic floor muscles (what we call Kegels). In other cases, you practice how to breathe and relax your pelvic muscles naturally without any eggs.

Yoni eggs are polished semi-precious stones curved out of the earth’s minerals in the form of eggs. Their synonyms include jade eggs, yoni pearls, and love eggs.

yoni egg image

The History of Yoni Yoga

More than 2,000 years ago, the yoni eggs were believed to have originated from China and spread to India and the rest of Asia. Yoni yoga was a reserve of the concubines of the emperor and members of the Chinese royal circle.

The Chinese royal family used green Jade, which was the first yoni egg. This stone combined its metaphysical healing properties with yoni yoga. They believed that the secret to the fountain of youth lied in having a healthy and robust yoni. I think they were right. This secret has been passed down to several generations, and now the whole world has a chance to enjoy the benefits of yoni yoga.

The Benefits of Yoni Yoga

Yoni yoga has several advantages to the modern woman.

  • You achieve a deeper connection with your divine feminism by understanding and appreciating your yoni
  • Women who practice yoni yoga attain mind-blowing orgasms and sensations
  • It helps with internal balance
  • After childbirth, yoni yoga can help you in sexual recovery
  • It eases the symptoms of menopause and premenstrual syndrome
  • Through resistance training, you experience reduced incontinence in the yoni.
  • You will also notice an increase in natural lubrication because relaxation balances your estrogen levels
  • Yoni yoga releases emotional trauma
  • You become aware of the mind, body, and soul connection
  • Women overcome issues with infertility
  • And last but not least, it improves sexual intimacy

Indicators That Your Yoni Needs Yoga

meditating woman image

Yoni yoga is an excellent tool in strengthening the pelvic muscles and providing spiritual healing through the root chakra. Any woman interested in the practice can definitely enjoy the benefits of yoni yoga. However, should you have any of the following indicators, yoni yoga will be especially beneficial to you.

  • You have been a victim of sexual trauma such as rape, female genital mutilation, and molestation
  • Incontinence caused by a urinary tract infection or fistula
  • You are recovering from a sexually transmitted disease that has weakened your vaginal muscles
  • Women who have had multiple vaginal childbirth: The vaginal muscles weaken even if you have had the smoothest vaginal deliveries
  • You are on your weight loss journey and want to strengthen your pelvic muscles as part of the toning routine
  • If you are going through the early onset of menopause and PMS
  • Or maybe you are undergoing infertility treatment

As you seek medical treatment, yoni yoga can hasten your recovery.

A Typical Yoni Yoga Class

There are several ways of practicing yoni yoga. But, first, you start with a warm-up, which can include taking deep breathes or a five-minute stretch. Lay your favorite yoga mat and insert the yoni egg in a comfortable position. Contract and release your pelvic muscles as you practice the yoga poses that are specifically targeting the pelvic area.

In a typical yoni yoga class, your instructor will take you through one or more of these poses:

The Bridge Pose

As you lie on your back, fold your legs and lift your hips as you inhale gradually. Now release as you exhale slowly.

MandukasanaThe Frog Pose

This pose makes you squat and move like a frog (although you don’t hop and jump). It targets the adductor (inner thigh) and inner groin, and as you stretch, you will feel a little tension. It is also the hardest pose to achieve with your yoni pearl inside, but once you master the technique, it will be your favorite pose.

Malasana The Wide Squat Pose

With your legs apart and hands on your chest, squat as low as you can as you Contract and release the pelvic muscles as many times as possible. If you find it challenging, place a blanket or a soft block below your heels to support your hips.

The Wall Pose

While lying on your back against a wall using your hands for support, contract and release your pelvic muscles as you inhale and exhale slowly.

Other popular poses include:

  • The Triangle Pose

  • The Chair Pose

  • The Camel Pose

  • The Lizard Pose

  • The Cobra Pose

Whichever the pose, you have to contract and release the pelvic muscles as much as you can to strengthen your yoni. It is essential that you take deep breaths as you do the poses. You should also hold a pose for at least four minutes before switching to another pose.

Apart from these poses, other activities that take place in a yoni yoga class include:

  • Meditation: Reflecting upon self in thought to quiet the mind and induce relaxation.
  • Tantric Yoni Massage: This is especially good in producing multiple orgasms.

Conclusion

Most women tend to neglect the pelvic floor muscles and only pay attention to it when they need healing. Don’t fall into this category. When the yoni awakes to pleasure, there is more blood flow, energy, and awareness of the tissues in the female genitals. Ensure the yoni egg you use is clean, made of materials that are safe and free from toxic substances. Yoni yoga, when practiced daily, can be life changing for most women.
