My introduction to energy work was via crystal healing. Through nothing other than Divine Intervention, I was introduced to crystals at a point in my own healing journey where I was convinced that I could never fully heal from the sexual and physical abuse that I had experienced. Learning to cope was the best I could hope for. And then I met my first crystals, a rose quartz, a snowflake obsidian, and a clear quartz. Funny thing, I already had them! They belonged to my mother, but were only being used for decorative purposes and cherished for their sentimental value. I didn’t know what they were or how to use them until a friend, a novice energy worker, came over and saw them sitting on my dresser and pointed them out to me. She taught me everything she knew about crystals and how to use them. I used that knowledge and enriched it with my own exploration and study. Crystals opened the doorway into energy work for me, which took my understanding of and approach to my own womb/heart healing to a whole new level. I have a very special place in my heart for crystals and the magic that they carry and open us to. It is my honor to share the healing power of crystals with you . . .
Have you seen or held a crystal and felt instantly mesmerized. Maybe you didn’t have the language for it or an understanding of what was happening, but somehow, you could feel your body and spirit responding to the crystal.
Crystals are alive. Crystals, like humans, have an energetic frequency that they transmit. Every crystal has its own unique frequency pattern; it's own personality as I like to say. In this way, they have the ability to tap into the human energy field to absorb, focus, move, direct, and diffuse energy within the body.
When I was given my first Yoni Crystal, I immediately fell in love. A crystal that I can insert into my vagina?! Mind blown.
My Yoni Crystal became my ace boon coon, a sacred and beloved partner in my womb healing journey. My personal Yoni Crystal collection and how I work with them continue to evolve as I do. I have a very special relationship with each of my Crystals. And I use them in different periods of my life to support me in transition, healing, stepping into my own power, and connecting to the Wild Feminine
In this article, you will find tips on how to work with your Yoni Crystal so that you get the best out of your experience. I honestly feel that working with your Crystal is a unique and intuitive adventure. Yoni Crystals have taught me how to communicate, listen to, and connect with my body in an unprecedented way. This, I feel, is the power of the Yoni Crystal. However, for those who are interested in working with a Crystal, but feel a bit intimidated. You can start here.
Before your first use and when you feel that your Crystal needs a deeper clean, you can place it in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Boil a pot of water, and then remove it from the stove. After 5 minutes of letting the water sit, place your Crystal in it. DO NOT BOIL YOUR CRYSTAL! Do not use soap on your Crystal. To clean after use, simply run your Crystal under cold water and wipe with a cloth. Your Crystal is a sacred item. Treat it as such! Keep your Crystal in a treasured space, preferably an altar.
Programming your Crystal
As mentioned earlier, crystals have an energetic vibration that responds to the human energy field. Just as the body responds to the crystal’s energy field, the crystal responds to your energy field as well. You can program your Crystal by focusing its energy on something you specifically want or need, thereby magnifying its intent through your own. Once a stone has been programmed, it will continually emit that intention until it is cleared or reprogrammed. A stone can hold several intentions, up to four or five, as long as they are compatible.
What do you want your Crystal to assist you with obtaining/healing/nurturing/releasing/creating/etc?
You can make a list of these things while you Crystal is sitting in hot water.
Once your Crystal is clean, hold it in your hands and gaze lovingly at it. Sense its energy, letting your own become attuned to it. Mentally go through your list, one item at a time. As you do this, thank the Crystal for its support in helping you to obtain each item. Feel the joy that fills you knowing that your desires have been answered and met. Take your time with this. Your Crystal is now programmed.
Note: Crystals can corrupt or exchange their programs when coming into physical contact with one another. To prevent this, protect your stone by wrapping it in cloth made of natural fibers, such as silk or cotton, when not in use. Protecting your stones' programming will prevent you from being influenced by other programming that is not what you currently want or need.
Just as physically cleaning your Crystal is important, so is energetically clearing it. Your Crystal is doing some serious work! It's essential to clear it periodically so that it can retain its potency. Clearing is also important for reprogramming.
Ways to clear your Crystal: Let your Crystal sit in a sea salt bath Bathe your Crystal in moonlight under a full moon Bury your Crystal in the dirt (make sure you mark where you put it!)
Exercises to do with your Crystal:
I do everything with my Yoni Crystal!
I like to take sea salt baths with my Crystal in the water
I do yoga, qigong, and hula hoop with my Crystal I meditate with my Crystal either in my hands or inside of me I like to make love with my Crystal inside of me, either solo or with a partner.
The possibilities are endless!
Here is one of my favorite exercises and visualizations to do with my Yoni Crystal inside of me:
Tuning into your Yoni Crystal Lie on your back with your feet on the ground and your knees bent, legs open. Place your Crystal on your womb and began drawing large circles with it. While moving your Crystal in circles, tune into your womb. Feel the energy being generated as you move in circles. Began doing your vaginal breathing exercises.
Bring your awareness to your PC muscles, the area between your vagina and anus. Take your time to practice contracting and releasing your PC muscles. As you inhale, squeeze the PC muscles together (as if your were stopping yourself from urinating) and pull the breath into your womb. Imaging your breath as light. Feel the light of your breath flooding into your womb, filling your yoni with its healing energy. As you exhale, relax the your PC muscles and push the breath out of your yoni. Continue doing this, getting into a rhythm with the breathing and the contractions. Make love to yourself as you cleanse your womb with the healing energy of your breath. Repeat this for as long as you feel called to. Take your time and go slow. This is a very powerful exercise!
Inserting your Yoni Crystal
When you insert your Crystal, visualize its energy as golden light flowing out of it and into your vagina and womb. Visualize the light suffusing your yoni, filling her with warm, healing energy. You can also imagine this light moving upward and downward, filling your entire body. If there are any areas other then your womb that you'd like to send the healing energy of your Crystal to, you can also visualize the Crystal’s energy moving into spaces in your body. Use the power of your breath to move the energy. On your exhales, move the energy wherever you want it to go.
While this article is a good starting point, your work with your Yoni Crystal will be the most powerful when you allow it to be an intuitive process. Remember to have fun with it! This is an adventure in healing and expansion. Bring as much fun/bliss/pleasure into your womb work as possible.
