One of the reasons I chose to create Chakrubs was because I was experiencing numbness in my vagina, especially with sexual partners.
I realized that this was because I had subconsciously learned to disassociate from my body during sex to cope with sexual trauma I had endured.
During this time, I also felt a deep desire to reconnect to my body and release all the energies of the past that had accumulated. Already being fascinated with crystals and their metaphysical properties, I envisioned the concept of relating to a crystal as a lover.
Crystals emit a consistent, stable, and subtle energy. This is significant because even we, as conscious humans, cannot emit the same energetic frequency at all times. We are influenced by all sorts of things like environment, emotions, other people etc. Crystals provide a natural sense of safety and stability when in our body’s energetic fields.
If we can tune into ourselves and become aware of the energy of a crystal, sexual pleasure becomes more intense, and sensation is brought back into the vagina. This is a process of resensitization. Slowing down and tuning in allows our minds to make neural connections to the vaginal nerves, opening up new pathways to pleasure.
The Emotional Connection
Another way Chakrubs work to increase pleasurable sensitivity is through the idea to address the underlying emotional factor that may be causing internal numbness. Many of us have never felt truly safe with a sexual partner. Working with a Chakrub allows you the gentleness, space, and patience to build that sense of safety.
Numbness rooted in emotion often reflects as a lack of energy flow within the vaginal tissues. Chakrubs help with facilitating both that physical and energetic movement.
Increasing Sensitivity with a Chakrub
After connecting to your Chakrub and bonding with its energy, you can begin a yoni massage practice. Regular practice, at least once a week, will increase sensation.
A Chakrubs Practice for Vaginal Numbness:
- Communicate with yourself or keep a journal. Ask questions like, “How have I benefited from experiencing numbness in my vagina?” The purpose of this question is to help you recognize that you are our own master, and that on some level you are doing exactly what you are meant to do. For me, I had to experience numbness in order to desire more feeling, so that I could “wake up” and set foot on my path of self-discovery.
- Bring your Chakrub into your lap. Close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Make a simple suggestion to yourself that you will tune into the energy of the crystal.
- After a few moments, move your Chakrub over to your heart. Breathe in and visualize the crystal and your heart glowing in warm, golden light.
- Start with the external, massaging the outer lips.
- Move to the inside lips, rub the Chakrub around the inner labia and clitoral hood.
- Massage the opening.
- As you warm up, move to the inside of the vagina. Press the Chakrub in different areas, with awareness on which areas feel tender, if any areas bring discomfort, where you experience pleasure. *This type of massage will increase blood flow and help dissipate any trapped energy.
- Take note of any new sensations that arise. Do you feel tingles? Do you feel tension? Do you have any visions that come to mind? Honor anything that comes up for you.
- Take the Chakrub and bring it back to your heart. Give gratitude for yourself and your crystal for creating space for healing.
- Write down what you experienced. Any thoughts, sensations, worries, visions, or ideas. At the end of the week, review this and see what you have revealed.
- Practice this for seven days. It can last anywhere from 10-45 minutes, depending on how much time you have.
*Remember to always practice good hygiene and wash your Chakrub with warm water and neutral soap, as well as energetic cleansing.
*You may wish to listen to a guided meditation during this practice. If you are feeling ready to do some powerful, energetic releasing, we recommend The Chakrubs Cord-cutting Ceremony Workshop.
*Practicing with a yoni egg alongside this practice will enhance results.
