Today, during a yoni steaming session, I was asked by a client to tell her my story and background around steaming. This is a question I get asked frequently so I pretty much have a “spiel”, where I gloss over the past 5 years of my life (for time efficiency’s sake) and how I have two small children (for a total of 4) and how I got a job when I was 9 months pregnant and then felt pressured to return to work in an alarmingly short time period because I perceived that I had to hurry back to work or the provision for my family would be jeopardized. I was too reliant on myself versus GOD, but GOD can always turn our pain into purpose and redeem decisions we made with less discernment than appropriate. YES GOD!
What I realized today, was that this is NOT A SPIEL. This is a story that needs to be honored, and acknowledged, and praised and learned from. YES GOD!
The truth is that I was involved in what seemed to be like a toxic relationship (but know I realize that the relationship served to show me a mirror to the “toxicity” frequency I vibrated within, that manifested itself in the story line that was my reality (life) at that time and in that space. I perceived that everything was on me and I had to bear the burden because that’s what I had always done… I will blog more on this dynamic later but in interest of time and readers attention span I will focus back on how vaginal steaming served to save (and still does) my life.
Because I perceived that the societal pressures meant that I needed to sacrifice precious time with my newborn, I delved more deeply into my already natural and holistic lifestyle. My daughter was born naturally with no medication in the water on July 6, 2014. I steamed shortly after I returned home from the hospital and did so consistently 3-4 times per week for about 2 months and then monthly after to keep my cycles and entire body, mind and energy balanced throughout the navigation of the next almost 4 years where I would be standing in my kitchen, running my own business, sharing yoni steaming and the natural healing modalities that I have learned and am still learning with other women.
When I really allowed myself to ponder and express what Yoni Steaming did for me, I realized it poured back into me. Not only did it literally give me botanical vapors containing medicinal properties, but it gave me a space to be vulnerable and receive the abundance of the earth.
Genesis 1:29 – And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Revelation 22:1-2 –
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, [was there] the tree of life, which bare twelve [manner of] fruits, [and] yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree [were] for the healing of the nations.
