Ovarian Breathing

Happy World Egg Day! To celebrate this post is for the Yoni Egg users!

Ovarian Breathing is one of the first things a woman needs to have as a daily practice before ever inserting a Yoni Egg, Yoni Sphere and or a Yoni Wand. Ovarian Breathing deeply cleanses and detoxes the Yoni and the Womb as it prepares them for the energetic practice of the Yoni Egg, Yoni Sphere and or a Yoni Wand. Read below to see how it’s done.

This should be done standing in a horse stance or lying on your left side (to start).

Place your thumbs at your navel with your fingers relaxed until you are making a triangle with your hands.

Now where your index fingers are placed is the Ovarian Palace. Your pinkie fingers are about where your ovaries are and the fingers in between are your Fallopian tubes.

Let your fingers sink lightly into your skin making contact. Energetically send your Ovarian Palace, Fallopian Tubes and Ovaries only what they need right now. Connect with them and send them great thoughts of love and gratitude.

A note on deep breathing. Ujjayi breathing or “the ocean breathe” is used to deepen your breathing and focus.

Within the Yoni Egg Practice, we do not stop at just breathing from the diaphragm we breathe from the Yoni itself. As you inhale the vagina expands. Now hold that breath as you contract and tighten your vaginal muscles. Then as you exhale you slowly release those muscles.

Now that you understand how far and deep the breath needs to go, let’s revisit the Ujjayi breathing technique. You inhale through your nose letting the air rush into your throat causing that “Darth Vader” sound. Now exhale through your nose allowing the air to once again rush through your chest and throat. It should cause that “Darth Vader” sound again or rather the rushing sound of the ocean. Usually this is a slow breath to the count of 8 at inhale, a hold to the count of 5 and and exhale to the count of 8. Practice and see what your personal count is.

Now we are familiar with the kind of breathing we will be doing. Please note the Ovarian Breathing is a continual visualization and breathing exercise that works best when completed. You can start with 5 minutes but when possible do 15 minutes to get the total benefits.

Version One

As you inhale bring that breath into the Ovarian Palace, then let it flow from there to caress the outside of the uterus, the inside of your g-spot and the perineum. Now as you now exhale your breathing should flow around the tip of your tailbone (or coccyx), over the top of your sacrum and back into the Ovarian Palace.

This should be a breath without pause, a continual loop from your ovarian palace and back again. This is going to oxygenate the entire area. This will also move toxins and awaken this area. You may get nauseous or lightheaded. That means you need to breath more evenly and focus on visualizing the path of your breaths.

Version Two

As you inhale bring that breath into the Ovarian Palace, then let it flow from there to caress the outside of the uterus, the inside of your g-spot and the perineum. Now as you now exhale your breathing should flow around the tip of your tailbone (or coccyx), over the top of your sacrum up your spine, into the back of your neck, up into the brain then from the forehead (frontal lobe), through the tongue; which is then going to act as a switch and deposit the access Chi into the Naval.

This should be a breath without pause, a continual loop from your ovarian palace to your navel. This is going to oxygenate the entire area. This will also move toxins and awaken this area. You may get nauseous or lightheaded. That means you need to breath more evenly and focus on visualizing the path of your breaths. When you master both versions alternate between the two during your rounds of Ovarian Breathing.

After you finish, lay still for a couple minutes, or if you are standing lay on your left side or stand erect. Rock or lay completely still. It is recommended to do this once a day for 30 days until it is a daily practice.

After care:

Have a cup of hot tea; peppermint or spearmint if you need cooling. Ginger Tea if you need heating. And Chamomile if you need calming.

A hot bath or shower.

Walking Meditation

There are many ways to meditate. It is a misconception that the only way to meditate is through complete silence and stillness. There are actually five ways to meditate and they are:

1. Focusing – you focus on an object to help keep your mind from wandering.

2. Thinking – you think about a specific situation with intention to be positive or to make positive changes.

3. Visualizing – you create pictures in your mind, thus making your mind stronger.

4. Experiencing – this is a combination of thinking and visualizing. You set your motivation beforehand, then you allow your emotions and senses experience situations you are working to make changes in empowering and life balancing ways.

5. Movement – you allow yourself to be attentive to your actions of everyday movements. You notice your breathing, your senses, you focus on the task you are performing. This allows you to be a part of small acts of bliss through mindfulness

Walking Meditation
My favorite walking meditation is in the park. I begin at the entrance of my favorite park, it has a huge lake at its center. I start by taking a big inhaling breath and then I slowly exhale letting my body relax and connect with nature. As you take your next inhaling breath tune in to your shoulders and jaw; and as you exhale let your shoulders release and slide away from your ears. Allow your jaw to open slightly while you rest the tip of your tongue at the roof of your mouth behind your teeth.

I always walk counter-clockwise around the lake to cleanse or clear away my stress and worries. Sometimes I walk fast but I set my pace slow and methodical at first so that I can tune in to my body rhythms. I engage all of my senses and allow myself to be aware of all the sensations from smells, noises, and even allowing myself to interact with others in the park. I keep these interactions to small greetings or smiles. As I return to my starting point I tune back into my breathing and as I end my walk I work on slowing my breath down to a calm slow inhalation and exhalation.

Take some free time and go on a walking meditation of your own. The main concern is to not get frustrated by distractions. Acknowledge them and then get your mind back engaged with your walk. The purpose is to be able to have more control over your mind and being aware of interference.

Ushas Mudra: The Beauty of Dawn

The Ushas Mudra is ideal for new beginnings.  This Mudra symbolizes the mindfulness of the sun rising in the morning.  The Ushas Mudra is an easy hand position to make and hold.  Ushas Mudra, when practiced daily, can give you an awareness of tension in neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, and fingers.  Once this awareness is developed you can slowly will your body to relax in these areas.

The optimal time of day for Ushas Mudra: When you first awake for the day.
Visualization: The sun rising slowly in the sky.
Intention: To ignite Joie De Vivre (Joy of Life)!  To begin the day positively, motivated, and filled with purpose.
Gift of Ushas Mudra: The inspiration to do good deeds and create beauty.

Hand Placement:  (while laying on your back
1.  Interlace your fingers with your right thumb in between your left thumb and left index finger
2.  Relax your fingers and allow your hands to rest upon your chest or abdomen.
3.  Monitor your breathing for three inhales and three exhales, then on the third exhale slowly stretch your arms above your head (with your fingers still interlaced–hold this hand position throughout stretching).
4.  Once your arms are fully extended, monitor your breathing for three inhales and three exhales.  At this point you want to become aware of any tension in your fingers, wrists, arms, shoulders, and neck and will it to relax with each breath.
5.  When you are feeling more relaxed begin your visualization.
6.  At the end of your visualization slowly bring your arms back to your chest or abdomen where we began.
7.  Begin your day.
