Protect your Assets, Magnetize your Magic and Strengthen your Energy Field with Kundalini Yoga

Protect your Assets, Magnetize your Magic and Strengthen your Energy Field with Kundalini Yoga

Are you constantly trying to protect your energy and ward off danger?

Are you wary of things being ‘too good’?

I know you’ve been hurt before. It makes total sense that you have built protective mechanisms to feel safe in the world. I understand why you are constantly smudging your space and clearing your belly.

 

The thing is, if we constantly continue to give our attention to clearing and processing we will continue to magnetize more and more to continue processing and protecting. My friend Matt Kahn lovingly calls this the ‘Cosmic Janitor’ – it’s time to put the broom and smudge stick down, we no longer need to sweep the karmic basement.

 

As the feminine, it is our nature to want to open, to surrender and to allow. When we build walls around ourselves, we begin to close off to the magic. We stop talking to strangers and allowing people in. We may find ourselves  in a constant state of judgement or spells of protection.

 

In a universe of ‘all is energy’ how do we find the balance between completely trusting the flow and also holding practical discernment?

 

Imagine this: the world is our external mirror, reflecting back to you what you  put out. So every time we drop a token of love into the collective, another reason to love returns. Every time we judge, criticize, or dramatize, the universe will continue to feed that story. This means we get to choose what we desire to have reflected back to us.

 

If you look into the mirror and smile you will receive a smile.

If you look in the mirror and frown you will receive a frown .

This is a micro-cosmic lens of the macro-cosmic reality.

 

Ok, stay with me.

 

Obviously we don’t have complete control over our external circumstances and how other people around us behave. However, we do have control of our emotions and our thoughts. We have control over how we wish to perceive our external environment.

 

We have control over our sensing of danger lurking or magic awaiting.

 

Here’s the secret, if we spend consistent quality time strengthening our energetic body, refining our mind and focusing on the good, then we can spend less energy on protection and discernment. With a strong auric field, which you can think of as  an extended energetic outline of your physical body, danger won’t even be attracted to you. . When we take the time to fill ourselves with love and light, that is exactly what we will magnetize. So we can spend more time celebrating and less time processing – hallelujah!

A refined human has an aura that can extend up to nine feet. A strong aura automatically uplifts and improves mood, as well as the whole body system. It is a subtle space that interweaves us with the universe and allows us to attract opportunities, vitality and wealth.

 

Our aura provides natural protection against disease and a negative environment. When the aura is weak, there is a sense of vulnerability to everything around us, like germs, attitudes, and emotions. When our aura is defragmented we feel shrunken, confused and dim.  

 

“The aura changes. You are ten trillion cells. They change every seventy-two hours.  A person can lie, but the aura doesn’t lie. You can very rhythmically read it; it will tell you everything. We want to grow in our strength, right? That’s the purpose of life: to be vital, to grow, so we can face every day, every person, every relationship, everything with excellence.”

-Yogi Bhajan

 

Let’s experiment. Here  is an invitation to spend the next 40 days taking 5-10 minutes daily  to strengthen and light-infuse your auric field. Do this at the beginning of the day to set the tone and intention of the day. Journal your progress and report back.

We want to know how it feels when you can open and trust more.

We are eager to hear how the magic flows into your experience as you focus more of your energy on strengthening from the inside out rather than protecting from the outside in.

 

Here are 3 easy and potent Kundalini Yoga practices or Kriya for Strengthening the Aura.

This kriya can be found in Sadhana Guidelines manual available at The Yogi Bhajan Library of Teachings.

5 Hot Tips for a Purring Pussy in Time for Spring

Open the windows, let the light in and release the density of the long, dark winter. This is the energy of SPRING! So often we focus on cleaning our closet, refreshing our powder room, and even cleansing our winter belly to embrace the lightness of spring. 

 

The spring energy matches the phase in our cycle just before ovulation or fertile phase. It’s the time when we take out the trash, clear the cobwebs, plant our creation seeds and dance in the spring rains. 

 

Have you ever cleaned your pussy to welcome spring? 

 

Our vaginal canal holds everything, emotionally, physically and energetically. It creates grooves, like scars, that tell the stories of our partners, patterns, beliefs and habits. 

 

Have you taken antibiotics or hormonal birth control? 

 

Have you been with a partner that you didn’t feel fully heart and soul aligned with? 

 

This all remains in our bodies, imprinted in the pussy until we cleanse it out. Just like the gut, there is a self-cleansing mechanism, however it will get clogged up with too much density from poor management of our external experiences.

 

Here are my 5 most cherished tips to get your pussy purring for spring time! 

 

1. Pussy Herbal Mask 

 

Yoni Blossom Herbal Detox Wand is a royal and delightful face mask for your pussy. It’s named ‘Yoni Blossom’ because it cleanses out the density to allow your luscious flower to blossom like a gorgeous spring bud. This treatment is step numero uno on the path to your down there spring cleanse. 

 

The yoni wand is made of bentonite clay and is infused with herbal medicine. Just like your fav face mask, it will pull impurities from your pores, tighten the surface area and leave your skin (vaginal canal) tingling clean. 

 

I recommend to steep the wand with your spring intentions of lightness and clarity. You may bless it with the specifics of what you are releasing and shedding with the winter months. 

 

Jump off spring with a Yoni Blossom protocol for 5 days in a row then follow with 1-2xs a week for upkeep. It comes with a complete user’s guide and we are here for any additional support.

Budget Tip:

If you are on a tight spring budget and feel like something may have made itself at home in your cocoon over the winter – try a peeled garlic clove inserted vaginally overnight for 3 consecutive nights.You can string with some floss and pull out in the morning. Fair warning – your breath will be garlicky for those days, so don’t plan this protocol around date nights! 

 

2. Fire up your Pleasure 

 

Did the sluggish winter slow down your libido. I know, cold hands are so NOT sexy!  

The best thing about ramping up your sexual engine is it warms your whole body and stokes your inner fire. Your sexual energy is just the thing to get things moving after winter. It will increase circulation, release tension and open the flow of energy. Every orgasm is a doorway to your DNA upgrade.

 

Let’s take a challenge together ~ 30 glorious days of pleasure from full moon to full moon. 

So from March 9 – April 7 we are pleasure rich and saturated! 

 

If you are partnered, you can invite your partner in on the fun, however remember if they don’t want to fully engage, it’s up to you (and you only) to commit to yourself. If you are single, you may want to pick up a new toy to amp up the fun and get ready to spend 30 days loving up on yummy self! 

 

As with anything, setting intentions is key. If you are single and calling in a partner, this is the BEST way to magnetise your king to you. In partnership, you can suggest a deeper bonding through this experience and a couple uplevel. 

 

Once you get your sexual engine running, it will continue to self-generate. It’s like exercising, sometimes you may not feel like moving, however once you break a sweat and get your heart pumping you blast past the wall of resistance. And the more you exercise, the more your body craves it to remain in balance. Once in motion, it will stay in motion. 

 

So, get it in motion sister! 

 

3. Yoni/V-Steam Spa

 

I don’t know what says spring self-care more than soaking beautiful flowers in water with blessings, creating steam and melting over it. Yoni steaming is truly magic for your pussy. 

 

The warm steam engorges your labia (to mimic arousal), opens your pores, withdraws impurities, infuses you with herbal medicine and leaves your flower warm, open and tasting like roses. It will increase circulation, lift and tone your uterus, drop you into your center, activate your Shakti (Divine Feminine life-force energy) and get you juiced up for your pleasure activation. 

 

A regular yoni steam practice means easy periods, clear fertile signs, a feeling of lightness in your belly, and a pleasing smelling pussy. 

 

The flowers and water are extremely energetically receptive and ready to be infused with your prayers, goals and desires for this next season. 

 

To create your own yoni-steam home practice, check out our Love Your Yoni Steam Spa Kit, it has everything you need, including a detailed user’s guide and shamanic womb meditation to get you steamy and dreamy. 

 

4. Pussy Breath 

 

  • Where attention goes, energy flows. This breath exercise will allow you to energetically tap into your pussy wisdom, activate your kundalini life force and take out the winter compost. 
  • Find a comfortable laying down position with your knees bent and open like a butterfly (I love to prop my knees on pillows). 
  • Bring your hands, breath and awareness down into your pussy. 
  • Focus on the inhale and imagine (fake it till you make it) sucking up breath through your pussy like you are drinking through a straw. 
  • On your exhale, relax your labia, allowing them to open and blossom out.  Hot tip: Open your jaw, and make an aaaahhh sound while you soften your belly and send energy down.
  • You may need to stay here for some time practicing the inhale, sipping up and exhale, blossoming open. 
  • Even now, while you are reading this, bring your attention to your labia and see if you can exhale and fully open your flower petals. It almost feels like a pushing out, yet it’s so subtle. 

 

Meet me back here when you are ready for the next level of activation. 

 

  • Invite a color to come into your awareness (let it just come without forcing it). 
  • As you inhale, sip this color in from your labia, into your vaginal canal, passing through your cervix and all the way into your womb. 
  • Pause with the breath and allow this color to spiral around your uterus, cleansing it of unwanted debris. 
  • On your exhale, pour your breath and the color out through your vaginal canal, through your relaxed labia and see it cascading onto the earth beneath you. 
  • Repeat this breath pattern for 3 minutes (7 or 11 minutes for advanced practice).

 

Imagine this waterfall of your uterus gushing onto the earth as compost, alchemising it into beautiful fertile ground. This is the ground you will plant your seeds for spring time and return everyday to water and appreciate.  

 

5. Pussy Sun Bath

 

This is one of the easiest and most effective practices to let the light in. 

 

Ancient Taoists called this “sunning” where you simply open your legs and have your pussy drink in the sunshine. The natural sunlight helps to kill bacteria and tone the muscles. By exposing the darkest or most yin part of our bodies to yang sunlight, we bring harmony and balance to our energy system. It is also very invigorating and stimulating for our sexual energy, or kundalini shakti. 

The practice of yoni sunning has also been shown to boost the immune system and help alleviate yeast. Plus, your labia will absolutely adore the warmth and injection of vitamin D.  Infuse the golden glow of life-force vitality into your whole being, from the bottom up.

I love to go nude in my backyard and bare my bottom to the sun for 10-15 minutes (gauge your time depending on how much sun exposure you are used to). I always feel a burst of energy, inspiration and a flow of any stuck or stagnant energy. If you are in a cold zone or don’t have the same seclusion, stay inside and catch the rays through a clear glass window.

  • Lay on your back with your knees bent open like a butterfly.
  • Place your hands comfortably on your belly outlining your pelvic bowl. 
  • On your inhale, imagine sipping in the golden ray of activation, prosperity and radiance through your pussy.
  • On your exhale, completely surrender your body to the earth beneath you. Relax all your muscles from head to toe, focusing softening your pussy. 
  • Stay here for a few minutes deeping your rhythmic breath.
  • When ready to spice it up – at the top of your inhale, contract your PC muscles (kegel or mula bandha), pause your breath and massage, in a circular motion, the sun’s healing rays into your belly.
  • Big open mouth exhale to release and soften. 
  • Repeat and stay with it for 5 minutes. 

 

After all of these exercises, the most important thing is to give yourself the space to integrate. Remain in a quiet and safe space, journal and reflect. These practices will take you as far as your intentions and desire allow. They are all very powerful and transformative. And with everything, how deep you go is up to you and you only. 

Comment below what you are most excited about for spring. And remember to share on social #30daysofpleasure for our full moon challenge and tag us so we can cheer you on!! 

With luscious spring love,

chakras balance lower triangle

Chakra Alignment: Balancing The Lower Triangle

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re familiar with the Chakra system. Chakra means wheel. These wheels of energy lie along the Nadis. Nadis are lines that allow Prana, life force energy, to circulate through the body. In Ayurvedic, traditional Indian medicine, there are an estimated 72,000 nadis. The seven main Chakras are concentrated centers of energy along the middle of the body that spin and circulate, much like a wheel. 

 

The lower three Chakras, the root (Muladhara), sacral (Svadhisthana), and solar plexus (Manipura), together make up what’s called the “lower triangle”. Having a balanced lower triangle is crucial to living a harmonious life. Unfortunately, imbalances are becoming all too common. Let’s take a look at what these three Chakras do individually, how they operate together, and how to treat imbalances. 

 

The first chakra, root, or Muladhara Chakra lies at the base of the spine and pelvic floor. It is represented by the color red and the element of Earth. It gives us our foundation, and sense of security. An imbalance may cause lower back and leg pain, a lack of trust that your basic needs will be met, and a general feeling of being uprooted.

 

The second chakra, sacral, or Svadhisthana Chakra is in the sex and reproductive organs. It is represented by the color orange, and the element of water, and gives us fluidity in expression, creativity, and our ability to move our life force in a circular motion. Imbalances may include UTIs or other vaginal infections, a lack of creative inspiration, and a disconnection from the sensations of pleasure.

 

The third chakra, solar plexus, or Manipura Chakra is in the navel center. It is represented by the color yellow, and the element of fire, and gives us our personal power, self will, and internal agni, or flame. Imbalances may look like digestive issues, a lack of motivation and confidence, and an inability to tap into your personal power.

 

These three chakras together make up the lower triangle. This lower triangle sets the foundation of our lives in this Earthly realm. To be balanced humans, we have to feel rooted and sturdy, have a fluid flow of expression and sexuality, and have the confidence and self will to move through life with our own driving force. A balanced lower triangle allows us to feel embodied. From there we are able to move into the space of the heart, and spirit realms. 

 

When the lower triangle is imbalanced there’s a sort of incongruence in someone’s behaviors. In anything they are doing whether it be work, communication, or relationships- there seems to be a lack of resonance. There’s a sturdiness when the triangle is balanced, and without that, things just feel off. 

 

We don’t live in a society that promotes this harmony. Too many of us carry generations of trauma in our bodies that manifest as imbalances. We live disconnected from the Earth and from each other, while often neglecting our true strengths and wishes.

 

There’s a tendency in spiritual communities to brush off our human needs or desires. That they are “less than”. We are in these human bodies, because we have lessons to learn within them. To minimize the needs of our primal instincts and desires, is to disregard part of the human experience. We need to be in touch with these desires. We need to have our basic needs met in order to tap into esoteric realms from a grounded place. 

 

These bodies are made of minerals and compounds that allow us to magnetize to the Earth. To maintain our connection to the planet and the elements within us is an act of reverence to the many layers of living a life of gratitude and devotion.

 

Now that we have an understanding of what the lower triangle is, let’s go over some useful tools to help maintain balance in the Chakras…

 

  • Kundalini Yoga is a system of thousands of Kriyas and meditations that work to balance the nervous and endocrine systems, as well as the brain and spirit. Compiled by Yogi Bhajan, this system for “householders” allows people to live an optimal life while going about their normal lives. Teachers put a strong emphasis on balancing the lower triangle, and many exercises and breathing techniques strengthen the naval center and lower body. 

 

  • Yin Yoga involves using props and bolsters to support the body in poses that allow the gentle unraveling of the connective tissue, or fascia, of the body- and the stories that it holds. The potent practice gives us the chance to slow down and drop into the body. 

 

  • Dance. Movement, fluidity, expression. It gives us the chance to feel how our feet connect to the ground beneath us and how our internal flame ignites and allows us to create art from our lower center. 

 

  • Chinese medicine: Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and other tools used by Chinese medicine practitioners balance the Qi, or life force within the body. 

 

  • Connect with the Earth: Spending time in nature allows us to connect our roots to those running beneath our feet. Much of the dysregulation we feel within us comes from being disconnected from the Earth. Hiking, swimming, gardening- anything that gives us the chance to deepen this connection. 

 

  • Community: Whether it be your blood or chosen family, connecting with community allows us to feel grounded. We can drop into our bodies and feel the interconnectedness between each other. It also gives us an open space to practice our self will and expression. 

Living with a balanced lower triangle allows to come to peace with unresolved anger, to live a life full of pleasure, and to go after our dreams and desires with the container to hold them. We are able to create a life that feels deeply satisfying and fulfilling, from which our spirit can pour forth.

How Yoni Steaming Will Change Your Life

How Yoni Steaming Will Change Your Life

 

Sage. Aum. Intentions. Steam. Meditation. Serenity. Awaken.

Warm steam arises from a sweet crevasse beneath me.  It gently warms my yoni and invites her so sweetly to open. Like a rose petal, blossoming, she awakens and becomes receptive to the medicine that is entering. Sacred flowers and herbs are meticulously picked and boiled for this ancient ritual. Time is taken from my modern-day business to drop in, to be and to breathe; space allowed to focus all my attention on my beautiful Yoni (ancient Sanskrit word for ‘sacred gateway’ or ‘vagina’).

Some go to church, yoga, or dance, while I go to my Yoni Temple every Sunday morning and pray. I have made this ceremony a part of my weekly holistic vaginal upkeep (excluding moontime). Through experience I recognize the valuable gifts it offers back to me and because it feels so good, I continue showing up for myself again and again in this way.  

“Every woman’s uterus needs attention, love & gratitude. When we are One with the womb, we are One with the Goddess.

– Dr. Rosita Arvigo, Womb Shaman

 

Boost Fertility – Yoni Steaming is widely used for increasing fertility due to its powerful ability to cleanse the uterus of any old, stuck residue. This makes for a beautiful clean ‘home’ ready for a sacred occupant.  If you are trying to conceive, it’s a powerful tool for bringing forth all dreams and creations into physical manifestation;t increases magnetism, abundance, creativity and feminine radiance.

 

Balance and Regulate Hormones – Yoni steaming is a direct path for herb and plant allies to penetrate the uterus. When boiled, the herbs release volatile oils, their unique medicine. As the warm steam opens and relaxes the outer labia, the inner labia swells and exposes herself.  The steam softens the cervix while the blood streams then carries the herbal medicine to the entire reproductive bowl.

 

Detox – Regular yoni steams stimulate and clean the lymph system, expelling toxins from the pelvic bowl. It also exfoliates the uterine lining of any residue membranes and buildup. This is really important to do especially after birth, miscarriage, abortion and hormonal birth control. Yoni steams are like a magical reset button.

Sweet Nectar – Due to the natural detoxifying effects of yoni steaming, your vaginal nectar will naturally begin to taste and smell sweeter as your body moves towards a more alkaline state. You may first experience an increase in discharge, as your uterus self-cleanses. Then the steam spa will thin excess mucus, leaving behind only vital fertile fluids.

Connect to the Cosmic Womb – Yoni Steaming, aka Bajos, v-steam and chai-yok, is an ancient practice, through many cultures, made modern. By connecting deeply into your feminine essence, your personal power source, as well as the Source of Creation, you will align to the will of the collective womb. All wombs are linked through an energetic current, or web, that is untethered by time and space. This means that as you are doing amazing healing for yourself, you are also liberating your ancestral and future generations.

Moontime Grace – After initiating a regular yoni steaming practice, your moontime will naturally become lighter and easier.. By cleansing the uterus of old blood and stagnant energy, while increasing circulation, yoni steaming aids in soothing all premenstrual symptoms, emotionally and physically. Check out Pain-free Period with the Ancient Art of Yoni Steaming for a detailed guide on how to ease symptoms.

Increases Sensitivity and Pleasure – Yoni steaming increases circulation, bringing more sensitivity and sensation to the vaginal canal. As it also tones and detoxifies, it resets the yoni to its natural state. This increases sensitivity and receptivity to touch and stimulation. Also, with regular steaming and loving attention, any pain or numbness will begin to fade, making space for more pleasure.

Self Love – Turning your attention towards yourself in a loving way is an act of self love.  You are focusing your vital mana (life-force energy) back onto yourself, for your own evolution and awakening. You are stating that you are worthy, you are deserving, and you are receptive to love and devotion. Yoni steaming is taking the time for you.

Yoni Guru – Your yoni knows best; always. This ancient practice gives you the key to tap into your innate wisdom and Divine Feminine intelligence. It invites you inside; to your intimate, sacred and powerful center. It is trusting the generations of wisdom that has been passed down from womb to womb to be here with us today.

Activates Kundalini Shakti – Yoni steaming is a deep spiritual experience. It awakens and fires up Kundalini Shakti, potent life-force energy that resides at the base of your spine. The steam sends the energy upwards and through the chakras (spirals of vital energy that contains codes for enlightenment).

It’s Changed Mine – Regular Yoni steaming rituals have changed the way I interact with my own body and the body of the world. It changed the way I eat, make love, speak to my yoni, take time for myself, and feel beautiful and worthy. It’s lightened and shortened my moontime, rid any symptoms of PMS, increased pleasure and sensuality in my yoni, and awakened me from the inside.

This is why, sister, I am passionate about sharing this potent information with you.

My vision is that it inspires you to try something new, and Remember Who You Are.

Let’s get started!
