Day 9: Listening
Thought for the Day:
Listening to yoni takes practice. She has been shushed and quieted and shamed for lifetimes. Culturally, we live in a time where intellectual intelligence is often held in the highest regard, and many of us have forgotten how to also live by divine feminine intuition. The next few days are going to be dedicated to deep yoni-listening.
In preparation for tomorrow’s video, today we will simply share silence with our yoni. I invite you to create a space in front of your altar where you can lay down, uninterrupted, for 10 minutes. You may want to bring along an alarm of some sort (or perhaps the alarm on your phone). If you have the ability to adjust the alarm, be sure it will ring in a soft and gentle tone. No need to end your ten minutes in a jarring way!
Bring plenty of pillows and blankets and any other items you need to feel comfortable, cared for and cozy. Lay on your back, place pillows under your knees to remove any pressure off your lower back, and place your left hand over your yoni, and your right hand over your heart.
For ten minutes, lay in silence as best you can. When stray thoughts come along, attempt to not engage with those thoughts. Think of them like a train just passin’ on by. When the thoughts get too loud, you can gently and audibly say to yourself, “shhhhhhhhh.”
