Do you believe our universe is ruled by a higher power? Have you ever looked out at a black velvet sky, stars twinkling, iridescent moon reflected off the leaves of budding trees, the crystalline ocean, or your windowsill, and wondered if there was something more running the show than pure chance?
To believe in the power of flower essence is to place your faith in the source energy of the universe. Though your belief does not affect the working powers of this form of plant medicine, it does allow an element of spiritual magic into your earthly existence. For centuries, cultures around the world have used flower essences to support, heal and transform our physical, emotional and spiritual health and well being, and connect us to a higher source both inside and outside our bodies.
When we use certain flower essences in conjunction with crystal yoni eggs, we can amplify the meta-physical healing power of both modalities to create a cosmic self-love, self-health ritual to honor our earth body, our subtle energetic body, and raise the vibration of all those we come into contact with.
What is Flower Essence and How Do We Use It?
A flower essence is the energetic imprint of a flower that has been transferred and stabilized in water. It is created by infusing the flowering part of the plant into a solution of water and brandy to “capture” and preserve the imprint of the flower. (Flower essences differ from essential oils in that they do not contain a perfume/scent.) This energetic / vibrational imprint is the life force of the plant. When we ingest flower essence either orally or topically, this life force interacts with the subtle aspects of our human energy. Much like the vibration of music is carried through air to our ears, the vibration of flowers is carried through water into our bodies to produce profound healing effects in our wellbeing.
The cosmic power of flower essences have a wide range of effects on the body, mind and spirit.
“Flower essences can help us recognize, resolve, or release different conditioned ways of perceiving the world and can help us experience greater harmony in our lives. By creating harmony within, we often notice distinct changes in ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually”
Case studies have proven that both long and short term use of flower essences radically reduces stress and depression while helping people cope with painful life circumstances and negative, even aggressive emotional states. Throughout our lives, we experience traumas that build in the energetic and physical body over time, manifesting into nameless emotional baggage and physical ailments that may at first seem to have no direct cause.
One of the main super powers of flower essence is helping us recognize our own patterns of behavior so that we can process our emotions, take responsibility for our present state, and release that which does not serve our highest good. This energetic clearing leaves us open to perceive higher states of consciousness and understand ourselves and those around us, allowing us to embody compassion, unconditional love and acceptance where there was no room before. All of this self-work results in a positive attitude and a deepened sense of spirituality and wonder in life itself.
All this from the imprint of a flower?! Keep reading.
What is a Yoni Egg Crystal?
Let’s begin with: what is a yoni? Yoni is the Sanskrit word for vagina and translates into “sacred temple.” A yoni egg crystal is a natural crystal gemstone shaped into the form of an egg that is placed inside of a woman’s vagina to support her physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Sound familiar? Benefits of using a yoni egg crystal or yoni steaming include decreased PMS symptoms, easier childbirth/postpartum healing, curing uterine prolapse, creating dexterity in the vaginal muscles, strengthening and tonifying the pelvic floor, release and healing of sexual/physical trauma, enhanced sexual pleasure and stronger, more frequent orgasms.
The yoni egg crystal ritual was a sacred art form utilized by the Empresses of China somewhere between 5000 and 7000 years ago. Jade crystal was used for the energetic and spiritual significance that the jade held for the Chinese Royalty. The “Bridge between Heaven and Earth” in the Daoist tradition, jade crystal was revered for its ability to align the meridians of the body, balance the Shen (spiritual energy), Chi (life-force energy) and Jing (sexual essence & manifestation) ) and merge these energy centers into union. The Empresses of China used the jade yoni egg crystal to harness their creative and sexual potency and use this energy to promote tranquility and rule the kingdom behind their King, while maintaining their feminine essence and yin (soft) nature.
A deep relationship forms between the woman’s womb and the crystal gemstone during the years that a woman is working with her yoni egg crystal for her healing and spiritual enlightenment. The ancestral wisdom of the womb carries the traumas and victories of seven generations of mothers, while the memory of the crystal carries thousands of years of information in the form of vibrational frequencies. When these two energies interact, a powerful portal for healing is in place with the potential to clear pain, resentment, fear and rage and reveal capacity for forgiveness, acceptance, love and trust on a planetary level.
Over the years the jade yoni egg crystal ritual has developed to incorporate many different types of crystal energies, from amethyst to obsidian, each with their own significance and specialty. My advice here is to choose your crystal wisely, in order to be prepared for exactly what quality of energy you are amplifying and releasing into your body.
Then, set a clear intention and program your goal/desire into your crystal before engaging in the practice.
How Do I Use Flower Essence with My Yoni Egg Crystal?
The importance of ritual has been undermined in our every day lives, creating a spiritual hole that many people do not perceive on a physical level. They just know deep down that “something is missing.” Ritual connects us to the beautiful and awe-inspiring forces of nature, to the spark of god and goddess that lies within all of us, reminding us of the magic in a sunset and the simple feeling of belonging that sharing time with a loved one can bring. Ritual is a gentle and powerful reminder that there is more to life than our current miseries and joys, that there is a purpose, a meaning and a destination after the journey.
Flower essences support a woman’s yoni egg crystal ritual by providing layers of protection, spiritual connection and gentleness as she dives deep into her ancestral wisdoms and traumas to heal her lineage, emotional spirit and physical body. The life force of the plant converges with the vibrational frequency of the crystal to manifest her deepest desires and support her in letting go of that which does not serve her highest healing.
To incorporate the healing properties of a flower essence and yoni egg crystal to prepare for ritual:
- Begin with a glass bowl of spring water.
- Make sure your yoni egg crystal is clean and ready to be placed inside of you.**
