We are deep in the midst of Navaratri, meaning ‘nine nights,’ this deeply auspicious festival whose intention is to fully honor, to bow to the great Goddess and Divine Mother, the omnipotent Shakti, the energy of all manifestation.
Shakti is the feminine energy, that which creates, which births, which brings forth and also receives. And in these final three days of this holy festival, Saraswati is the form to which we direct our focus and energy. She is the Vedic goddess of wisdom, creativity, purity, artistic expression and an embodiment of the light of knowledge within us all and the unlimited creative expression that can be born of this vast well of Consciousness.
Why not, from now until October 7 (and beyond!) bring the worship of the feminine energy into your heart and your practice. One way, is to literally celebrate the altar of your femininity! Although taboo in our western culture, in Ayurveda, it is a joy to anoint the Yoni, the vagina, with Sneha, meaning both oil and love. Our Sacred Yoni Elixir is truly a bottle full of this love. After your shower (or in coupled or single sexual pleasuring), place the bottle in a bowl of hot water so that the oil may become warm. Then, with full awareness, apply a few drops to the Yoni and massage with care, love and presence. Notice the conditioned thoughts of shame that arise. Watch them and know that they are not born of your heart. Laugh. Cry. Rejoice! You are free. Do this daily and watch your naturally creative expressiveness spring forth over time.
The Yoni Oil is also a powerful tool in preventing and addressing persistent bacterial infections, chronic dryness, pain during intercourse, and energetic holdings.
Jai Ma Saraswati Namaha! Jai to Truth embodied as Life!
