Mickie Monroe - Gold Coast
I was unsure if I would share this but if i didn't that wouldn't be honouring my values of being integral and real in my vulnerability. We have so much conditioning and shame around this part of our body it is time to break down these barriers and bring back the connection to our sexual selves. Yesterday I had a Yoni mapping session with the beautiful Victoria Smith and I wanted to share my experience. For those that don't know "Yoni" is a sanskrit word that means "sacred temple" and is a more honoring word for our Vagina.
A yoni mapping session is basically a type of acupressure massage as the reflexology of our Yoni is connected to different parts of our body, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our hearts are directly connected to this area and we actually store our emotions in the cellular memory of the muscles in our pelvic region. I was nervous as I have been dealing with trauma and disconnect within my body but I knew that this type of session would allow me to release emotions that no longer served me and I had been harbouring and my yoni was guiding me towards this form of healing. The session was profoundly emotional as I allowed whatever needed to be felt to be expressed and the only way I can describe it was near the end I had an emotional climax, a deep emotion came up and I felt it completely, it was the feeling of great despair and loneliness, this was a regular feeling for me growing up as I had significant moments of feeling misunderstood and extremely alone in my despair.
It was so deep to allow myself to safely feel this emotion without going into a story and I could feel the buzzing of energy shoot through my body as these blocks were expressed and released. This is truly profound for us women to reclaim our Yoni space, beyond just seeing it for sex or for pleasure. This space has it's own intelligence within the body and the more we connect with it, the more embodied we can allow ourselves to feel. My experience was mine, sometimes this can awaken the pleasure centres in the womb, it can be powerfully orgasmic or extremely emotional, it's about non judgement and allowing yourself to feel whatever is wishing to be expressed and reconnecting with this part of yourself in a safe space.
If you feel like this may be something that you are interested in looking into further and you live on the Gold Coast, I highly recommend Victoria Smith Tantric Witch I felt very safe and she held space for me beautifully.
And for the men who may read this, I hope this can help you understand how important it is for a woman to feel safe and connected with this part of her body and that if you have a partner who wishes to do something along the lines of this on her journey, to let go of any judgements and just offer acceptance and support on her path to sensual embodiment
