How to have a Healthy, Luscious and Pleasured Yoni

May 9, 2019 10:15 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Yoni is a sacred, sanskrit word that translates to “source of all life” or “sacred space” referring to a woman’s holy grail, aka vagina, between her legs. It is of utmost importance that we properly take care of our yoni.   Our sexual energy is power source and our pleasure is our gateway into the universe.   Pleasure has many forms. Pleasure is being in the company of a loved one, pleasure is dark chocolate melting on your tongue, pleasure is cuddles with your pup, pleasure is soaking in the sun’s rays and pleasure is getting lost and wild in nature.   Pleasure is a way that we move through life.   When we bring our yoni into balance, her potential for pleasure amplifies. Imagine cleaning out a dirty hose, or removing the kinks, this would lead to more water pressure. More water pressure is your juices flowing freely and... View Article


3 Potent Practices to Blossom with Spring

March 25, 2019 7:45 am Published by Leave your thoughts

As we welcome spring into our homes, our gardens, and our wardrobe, we can also invite spring into our Being. Spring is a time of clearing out the old to make space for the new. It’s a fluttery, flirty energy that feels like a blossoming, open to embrace the increase in sunlight. In the sacred cycle of the Archetypal Feminine, spring time can be linked to the Virgin/Maiden energy. The Maiden is the lightness of heart and body that emerges after a heavy, dark winter of blood/moon time. The Maiden represents new beginnings and a purity of heart, womb and spirit. She portrays the innocence of childhood, where the soul’s dreams, magic and make believe, are alive. The Maiden Goddess appears when a woman is pursuing her own desires and ideas for herself. The Maiden puts herself first, she does what she wants, when she wants to do it. Here... View Article


5 Radiant Femme-Boss Hacks to Uplevel your Game

March 25, 2019 7:30 am Published by 4 Comments

When we step into ‘boss mode’ we often step into our masculine. We make to-do lists, schedules, non-negotiables and get hyper-focused on the bottom line. Having the ability to integrate our masculine is an invaluable tool that really anchors stuff getting done, and effectively. However, when we are too busy pushing and grinding, we can forget to open to unknown variables and flow with spontaneity. When we are driving hard and fast in our masculine, we often finish the day exhausted, depleted and drained. The masculine essence is very penetrating, using his strong will and determination as the motivating driving force. The feminine essence is receptive, open to emotions expressing and plans shifting. She is tuned in and turned on to life. She uses her 6th sense to be in the right place at the right time, thus being more efficient and effective with her time and energy.   By... View Article


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

March 3, 2019 1:59 am Published by Leave your thoughts

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... View Article


A Holistic Guide To Heal Yoni Yeast

January 16, 2019 11:03 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Yoni (Sanskrit — योनि ): womb; sacred space; vagina. Your yoni is an intricate, dynamic system – a galactic universe. She has her own pH, microbiome, ecosystem, delicate hormonal dance and built-in security to assist in maintaining a healthy equilibrium. Your yoni naturally wants to be in balance, and will clearly let you know when something/someone is throwing her out of whack.  She has a voice and speaks to us in symptoms. The more out of balance one becomes, the ‘louder’ the symptoms will get until they are unavoidable. If we learn to listen to her gentle guidance, we become a magnet for living a joyful, sensual, creative and abundant life! Signs she’s not happy – UTI, yeast infection, rash, smell, PMS, cysts, and the list goes on. One of the most important holistic self-care tools is deep listening.

  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;pace allowed to focus all my attention on my beautiful Yoni (ancient sanskrit word for ‘sacred gateway’ or ‘vagina’).
