The jade egg is a beautiful, sacred practice for women to access their deepest feminine essence and learn to transform sexual energy into spiritual energy. Watch the Taoist Grandmaster Mantak Chia explain the benefits of Jade Egg use.
Taoism is well famed for its female adepts, and the prominence of the feminine both literally and symbolically is well documented throughout its history. The secret teachings of Taoist women, known as the Immortal Sisters, were closely guarded secrets for thousands of years, but thankfully this wisdom and knowledge is available to us now. The jade egg is one aspect of these practices, sometimes referred to as Sexual Kung Fu.
Sexual energy is the nourishment of the totality of ourselves – body, mind and spirit. In the Taoist tradition sexual energy is much more than the act of sex, as it permeates all areas of our lives. It is the roots of life, influencing health, longevity and emotional well-being. It is also the energy that can create spiritual fulfilment, as it is a force that unifies with Source and creates harmony from opposites.
The jade egg has a myriad of benefits. On a physical level, it tones the pelvic floor and PC muscle, also known as the Love Muscle! A strong PC muscle increases orgasmic ability and conserves chi/life force. Regular use of the jade egg helps to balance hormones and relieve symptoms of PMS or menopause. It can increase fertility and enhance your creative energy. The sexual reflexology points within your vagina or Jade Fountain (ancient Taoist term) are activated which stimulates the vitality of the organs. On an emotional level, it can help release past traumas and any negative sexual experiences. On a spiritual level, the jade egg connects you with Source and the sacred feminine within.
Sexual energy can be transformed into a more usable form of energy (Chi), which nourishes and revitalises the organs and glands. It can then be transformed to a higher-grade spiritual energy (Shen) to nourish our Soul and Spirit.
