Thank you all for joining me on this adventure! Yoni Moon! Who would have thought? A place for women, men too I suppose, for those men wanting to learn more about their wives, girlfriends, lady friends, etc. But be prepared men, you may get more than you bargained for if you keep digging through this website!
Sexuality, and self love, are something I have always struggled with, and struggled with in silence. Fun Fact; Did you know it took me until my mid 30's to have an orgasm with another person, without my helping them?! Sorry maybe too much information, but this website is all about talking about things that are "too much information", after all, if we cant discuss it here, where can we? After talking to so many women around me, I came to find that this is something I am not alone in. Do you know how many women have been faking enjoying their sex lives in hopes that one day they actually will enjoy them? Never speaking up in the bedroom about what they want? Never maybe exploring what they want? How many women have never explored their own bodies in an attempt to at least enjoy sexuality with themselves? How many women struggle in silence with their fertility? How many women are ashamed, or struggle with their own sexual ideals, traumas, experiences, looks and more? Yet we don't talk about it and we need to start, like yesterday. So I am here today, standing up and saying, "this is scary, but it shouldn't be, this is life, this is normal, and the very foundation of life is sexual, so let's talk about it."
As a young woman, growing up with so many opinions, of other people views, of what a women should be, being shoved down my throat, it was extremely difficult, and damaging. A women should be tall, but not too tall, slender, but not too slender, have curves, but not too big of curves, be beautiful, but not too beautiful, be intelligent, but not more so than men - and if you are - don't show it, be strong but not stronger than men, and be someone who can hold a conversation, but not converse for too long (gosh us women all we do is talk!). Those stereo types were difficult, but there was one looming stereo type that I couldn't seem to wrap my brain around; Women should not embrace sexuality. In fact if you did embrace sexuality, you were or still are a "slut", "skank", "whore", and in my opinion the prettier the woman who was exploring her sexuality, the more likely she was labelled these degrading names.
The saddest part, a lot of these names come from women! Our girlfriends, our sisters, our teammates. The very people we need to stand with, are the ones attacking and shaming each other. Why? Are we so insecure in our own sexuality, in our own inner power, that we must shame those who are desperately seeking all of themselves? Why do we applaud the men who explore their sexuality as much as they want, while shaming the women? Could it be that men started calling women these names in an attempt to take the spotlight off of their own shame? Where did this name calling and shaming start? Even if exploring sexuality only comes in the form of masturbation, watching pornography, tantric sexual meditation, and doesn't even involve another person. Why is this frowned upon? Why is this world so "masculine" in its teachings, in its laws, in its structures? I am not a feminist bra burner, by any means, I am not here to make men feel like less, or to make anyone feel like less, I am just here to discover my sexuality in a place that is safe from name calling, and safe from being afraid to use words like "vagina", or "yoni" or "period", or "clitoris", or "masturbation", or "cum", or "dildo", or well you get the idea....... in a place that seeks holistic, natural, spiritual ways to love ourselves.
As a woman, as a part of the group beings who birth life into this world, I want to know more, I want to explore, and I hope you will enjoy exploring with me!
I am going to end todays blog with a paragraph written by MJ Sherfey in their article named; Some biology of sexuality, that I found really interesting, and why I think women more so than anyone else should be exploring their sexuality;
"Geneticists have discovered that all human embryos start life as females, as do all embryos of mammals. About the 2nd month the fetal tests elaborate enough androgens to offset the maternal estrogens and maleness develops."
If there are any subjects you want me to chat about or discuss in depth, please send me an email!
In Self Love & Discovery Randi
Yoni Moon was created, as a place for women of all kinds to come together, to discuss, learn about, and explore all things Yoni related, in a natural, holistic, and spiritual setting. Yoni Moon is all about helping women fall in love with themselves all over again, or for the first time!
Yoni comes from the sacral language Sanskrit, and means the womb, source, and the female organs of generation. It also refers to the female sexual organs such as vagina, vulva, and uterus.
The moon is known in many cultures as a grandmother moon, as the moon vibrates within the same frequency as feminine energy, and is known to affect women's monthly cycles, while moving through its own phases.
So why Yoni Moon?
All the eggs a women will ever carry, form within her ovaries, while she is a four month old fetus in the womb of her mother. This means our cellular life as an egg begins in the womb of our grandmother. Each of us spent five months in our grandmother's womb and she in turn formed within the womb of her grandmother. In a spiritual context, we all started within the Yoni Moon.
Every month we will have two free Yoni Moon meditations on our facebook page, as a thank you to our followers and friends. They will fall on the full moons and new moons. We will embrace kundalini energy, root, sacral, & solar plexus energies, the feminine energy from the moon, as well as mantras, breathing techniques, and cord cutting ceremonies!
