For Yoga – Adding the jade egg practice to your time on the mat will add another rich dimension for you. Wearing your jade egg internally during your practice helps to activate, heal and massage your yoni. With breath work and the expansion and contraction of your body in each asana you are practicing yoni yoga. Yoni yoga tends to be more gentle, yin and restorative in nature, although you can take part in a regular Hatha yoga class if you wish. I would recommend becoming familiar with jade egg practice for a bit first – some lose their egg in class and feel a bit embarrassed on how to retrieve it.
For Meditation – In meditation we practice breath work, stillness and turning our attention inward. The egg can be our internal point of focus to help keep us present in our practice. The jade egg itself carries the intrinsic quality of grounding, which is where we often begin in meditation. We drop in and drop down – the egg helps create a deeper awareness of our inner landscape. If we don’t pay attention it may slip out – over time with your jade egg practice you feel the egg present in your body more and more.
Working with the chakras – Many guided meditations take us through the chakra system for moving energy and deeper healing. A jade egg practice helps move this energy throughout the entire chakra system – like getting the kink out of a garden hose, where the water begins to flow more freely again. We expand, heal and grow in new ways when this energy flow is restored and open. The quote in this e-zine provides some wonderful examples of how we shift with chakra work.
I wish you an abundant winter season filled with much love, passion and adventure. As always I am here to support you in this life journey – and welcome your feedback.
