It is directly connected to the heart chakra, and is most used for those who seek to attract new love, mend old-love, or for those working on loving themselves, and finding compassion for others. What stands out most about this egg for us is it’s use for healing trauma. This is the egg for those who have experienced sexual, or mental trauma and seek to overcome that pain. Especially for women, sexual trauma is a frequent barrier — this little blush egg will help work with you to heal. Not to mention the Rose Quartz just looks like the epitome of feminine divine!

For physical health, it is said to ward off pesky PMS (okay, we’re all in now). On an energy level, we can start by saying it turns negative energy away, and can be used as a protector. This is another stone that can also aid in healing from trauma, we would even suggest treating yourself to a Black Obsidian Yoni first, and then moving on to a Rose Quartz if you are looking to work through body trauma. Deal with the nitty-gritty of the issue first, and then heal it with love.Yoni Eggs Part Two | Choosing A Yoni Egg to Attract What You Want in Life!

Yoni Eggs Part One | A Beginner’s Guide to The Magic Egg.

Yoni Eggs Part One | A Beginner’s Guide to The Magic Egg. NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED. --- Sexual health, sex ed, how to have better sex, crystals, yoni egg, yoni practice, how to choose a yoni egg, ovary health, how to tighten vagina after child birth.

If you’ve yet to hear about Yoni Eggs you aren’t to blame — they are just barely teetering the line of mainstream, but with the increase of interest, and the internet supplying beautiful creations, the practice of Yoni is having a moment. It’s an ancient practice dating back to Chinese concubines who needed other-worldly lady bits to keep Emperors coming back for more. The custom goes so far beyond just sexual sorcery however — these gemstone goods can be tools for healing, manifesting, and protection. It’s a balance between the physical and metaphysical all depending on the root of your feminine being.

Great, but what is Yoni?

The word Yoni is Sanskrit for ‘Sacred Temple’ or ‘Sacred Womb’, and we believe there is nothing more important than starting your Yoni education with that in mind. On the most basic level of these little oval tools: they can be used to strengthen your kegel muscles (those little internal muscles that can stop a flow mid-pee). This promotes vaginal health, and good sex (now we’ve got your attention). Yoni’s are very often used after child birth to retrain inner muscles. Further than just that though, by choosing the perfect crystal Yoni, you can promote all kinds of revelations, and invite healing properties into your body — just like the crystals you’ve curated on your coffee table. These can be purchased either as a drilled or non-drilled egg which you placed inside of your vagina. A drilled egg has a space to tie a string (some come already strung, but you can use non-waxed dental floss as well). Much like the string of a tampon this is just used for removal. While we suggest a string for beginners, it is also believed that a non-drilled egg is great for the practice of growing trust with your body as it will remove the egg itself once it has absorbed the curing properties needed. It’s safest to go with what makes you most comfortable at first.Yoni Eggs Part One | A Beginner’s Guide to The Magic Egg.

Does size really matter?

These magical little eggs come in three sizes, and sizing is important to look into as there are a lot of myths surrounding this part of your Yoni purchase. This choice depends more on muscle strength than vaginal cavity size. Contrary to popular belief a small figure does not mean small Yoni. Small Yoni’s are usually reserved for well-versed egg users who want to exercise various sizes. Larger eggs are actually safer to start with, as you will be able to feel it’s presence. If you are stumped though, medium is your best bet!

Are there safety helmets provided?

Most importantly is being educated about execution, starting with finding a Yoni that is a certified gemstone. With the popularity of Yoni growing, there are many e-retailers out there selling any green stone under the sun and calling it a Jade Egg. We suggest looking for that certified stamp very carefully. Below we have included some of our favorite resources out there. If you find a good egg, it’s worth investing in, these babies can last you quite a long time! Upon receiving your new egg, bathe it in Himalayan salt water to purify, and give it it’s new intention for your practice!

A Pubic Hair PSA: What’s The Deal with Upkeep?

A Pubic Hair PSA: What's The Deal with Upkeep? NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED --- Personal care, Sexual Education, Sex Ed, Sex Heath, Pubic Hair, Brazilian, What do guys like pubic hair, Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw, Girls HBO, Lena Dunham, Hannah Horvath.In the height of Sex and the City it only took Carrie Bradshaw proclaiming that Brazilian waxes were a thing to change the terrain of pubic hair forever (this proclamation was so impactful it literally diminished the problem of pubic lice). However, that was back in 2000 and now we’re a little curious? What is the norm for your hair-down-there seventeen years later? We believe that pubic hair shouldn’t necessarily be a trend but a personal preference that makes you feel sexiest and most comfortable — that being said we know these topics can be skimmed over leaving you wondering “am I only cool if a vagazzle?” So we thought we would hit up our girl gang once again for a good ol’ pubic hair poll.

Let’s start off with one femme of Vérité we questioned, who for all intents and purposes, we will call Charlotte. Upon a sms interrogation of her current situation she candidly shares “I’ve been into bikini waxes for a while (not total Brazilian) but as of late I’m just going full 70s bush. I literally haven’t done anything in months and months and months…” When asked is her partner get’s a say she shares that he is strongly opposed to the Brazilian.A Pubic Hair PSA: What's The Deal with Upkeep? NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED --- Personal care, Sexual Education, Sex Ed, Sex Heath, Pubic Hair, Brazilian, What do guys like pubic hair, Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw, Girls HBO, Lena Dunham, Hannah Horvath.

Our second poll participant, who we will call Miranda, says she goes full Brazilian all the way. Does her significant other get to weigh in? “I let him weigh in but it’s convenient that we both prefer the same thing. Not that I always upkeep, that shit’s hard.” Agreed.

It does feel like there’s a shift away from the Brazilian since that fateful episode that aired with the coming of the millenium. This could be due to its high expense, annoying maintenance, or just the fact that it’s possibly the most painful thing your vagina may endure aside from giving birth. Our investigations continue…

We asked yet another girl gang member her preferences. Let’s call her Samantha. “Personally, I feel much cleaner, and comfortable when I’n fully bare — but I don’t mind letting it grow to well kept French girl bush either. The one thing I cannot handle is shaving. Don’t know how anyone deals with the act of doing it or the stubble. I don’t think girls should ever worry about someone’s expectations though. I think your partner is just happy to be there.”

This sentiment was seconded on our favorite place on the web (aside from right here) Reddit where a nice gentleman with the username Kellerkadooogan said this on the matter: “As long as she down to get down I don’t give a fuck about the hair as long as is not full bore unkept; no I don’t mean shaved, trimmed is fine.”

Seems to us that while the Brazilian is far from finished having its day in the sun, we are embracing our natural roots more and more without fear of judgement. But that’s not to say some strange trend may not arise in the future… that we haven’t even thought up yet… iVag?

We really can’t have this conversation though without touching on the fact that what may be trending has directly been affected by what the world has garnered from the porn industry. Just think of the above statements from the ladies we surveyed — references like 70s and French girl bush come directly from erotica be it imagery or film, whether we realize or not! It’s almost impossible not to be influenced even second-hand by what is trending in these videos, to which we quote Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) in the final season of Girls, “For your information, this is what adult women look like when they’re using their pubic hair the way that, like, whatever, the lord intended. Which is to protect their vaginas. So thank you for pointing that out.”

Six Ways to Transform Your Space With Feng Shui

Six Ways to Transform Your Space With Feng Shui. ON VERITE PUBLISHED. --- Feng Shui, Interior Design, How to decorate your home, easy feng shui steps, how to manifest, energy work, space healing, los angeles, interiors.
Words by Meghan Wallace James.

Feng shui is my favorite lover. The longer we stay together, the better it gets… the alignment, the intuition, the communication between object and woman, the magic, the flow, the energy. As I peel back the layers, new intimacies are revealed – treasures that come from a daily practice of keeping temple, loving on my space / in my space. I believe that our home is a phenomenal portal for physical manifestation when we allow the energy to flow freely and beautifully. So what’s my ‘meet cute’ story with feng shui?

I amicably divorced the father of my children two years back. He kept our freshly renovated 1920’s Spanish in Beverly Hills, while I rented a sexy, yet tiny cottage. He wanted to keep everything and I wanted nada — no divorce juju, thank you very much. I had been pre-paving eccentric minimalism for years, and the Universe had delivered a bold opportunity. I had $5,000 to furnish the place and made each purchase thoughtfully yet with a light spirit. The result: a handmade Japanese futon with 70’s psychedelic brocade tatami trim, crisp white linens, Turkish bath towels, houseplants in glazed terra-cotta urns, a Shun chef’s knife, an Alessi French press, Heath dinnerware and a brand new vibrator (priorities). No carpets, no curtains, no art… I wanted to do it right or not do it at all. The few items from the old place furnished my boys’ zone, providing continuity during a major lifestyle transition. I sold or donated most of my clothing and books, keeping the favorites. Ahhhhhhhh, space to feel.  Can you feel it? I believe we all intuitively understand energetics of space, and with my first major feng shui foray, I was high on the results. Once I got my bearings, I sought out two master teachers: one Western and one Eastern, to create a unique, sensual  blend that I now share with clients.

Okay, okay — but how to get started sans drastic life change or big budget, you say? Let us begin our feng shui journey together with six fundamental steps:

  1. Create an eye catching, welcoming entrance. Step outside and look at your entrance.  Stand there for a bit. Use all of your senses and make an honest assessment: Would good vibes want to enter your space? Energy has to get in before it can circulate. Beautify that entrance, and your front door in particular — studio apartment, mcMansion — it honestly does not matter. You should be able to open and close the door clearly.  No piles of stuff, no creaking hinges, no cobwebs. Go bold and lacquer your front door Chinese Red to activate the energy. Curate fresh planters. Or simply sweep your walk.  Bonus points for a doormat and a mailbox that look receptive of abundance. Make sure porch lights are in working order, change the bulb for ambiance and set timers for nightfall – alight the path home for good fortune.
  2. Go shoe-free indoors. If you are not already, become a ‘shoe-free’ home. Right before or after crossing the threshold, take those puppies off. Encourage family members, roommates and guests to follow suite with a shoe tray or bench. To understand feng shui is to communicate in the language of metaphors… think of everywhere those shoes go… do you really want all of that energy in your sacred space? Not to mention basic hygiene; chic slipper game, yes please.

Designate a home for every possession. Clear the clutter. Yep. This is the most obvious feng shui ‘cure’ and the most taxing process for many. Energetically, clutter is a series of unmade decisions, so take charge of your life and make those decisions. Pace yourself and do this cathartic work when you are in alignment, operating with positive energy, trusting that with every item you purge (sell, donate, trash) you are inviting in fresh energy. A gold standard is to aim for 50% volume: every closet, shelf, drawer, counter, surface should have half of the space free. Get artsy and arrange everyday objects into inspiring vignettes. You will feel a difference, I promise.

4. Bathroom shui at bay… close the toilet lid and keep the bathroom door shut.  This will quickly become second nature and will do wonders for the flow of your home.  Side note: fix any leaks in your space ASAP; leaking water indicates leaking weath.

Keep it clear down there: nothing under the bed. Not a thing. You deserve clean and clear dreaming, direct messaging from the collective unconscious, untarnished by dusty crap. I have pulled the wildest objects out from underneath client’s beds, including a signed edition of Taschen’s “The Rolling Stones.” This client was dealing with multiple bad boy rock stars and mending a broken heart; apply the language of metaphor please.

6. Design a weekly life affirming ritual. Start a weekly ritual to clear stagnant energy and add life to your home. It can be as simple as dusting and saging, or opening all the windows and buying yourself flowers at the market. Escort out the old and welcome in the fresh regularly, and your life will start to bloom.

Turmeric! Our Secret To Fighting Bloat, Aging, and More.

Turmeric! Our Secret To Fighting Bloat, Aging, and More. -- VERITE PUBLISHED --- Turmeric, Curcumin, Health, Beauty, Detox, Diet, Natural skincare, natural diet, Inflammation, How to lose water weight, How to fight inflammation, ayurvedic medicine, traditional chinese medicine, arthritis, how to fight bloat, how to fight swelling, Alternative medicine, anti-aging.We are here to divulge our biggest beauty hack…yep, Turmeric is our secret to fighting bloat, aging, and more! In the ironic world of trend foods, this electric orange root is an all-star and we are happy to head the fan club. It was just last time sitting in my hairdresser’s chair that he raved about the insane sprouting of my tresses. It was true, in a short four months it had extended an incredible amount, especially for someone who bleaches it an ivory blonde. After a quick brainstorm we came to the conclusion it was the daily doses of turmeric I was intaking that had bettered my hair and facilitated a Repunzal state. Turmeric is known to heal and promote thriving of our bodies in many ways — it’s most active element called curcumin is what delivers the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Though it may be buzzing in beauty columns now, it has been around at the root of Ayurvedic and TCM medicines for centuries — and its benefits reach so much further than hair (it’s said to help protect against cancer, arthritis and Alzheimer’s). Turmeric is used in these ancient medicines to heal stomachs, promote anti-aging (it’s the anti-oxidants and bioactive compounds that rejuvenate our cells), and repair creaky muscles and joints. It beholds anti-inflammatory abilities that make it the most useful to us in our current state. Due to the structure of our diets, and lifestyles, we are full of toxins from factory fabricated foods and pollutions that make for overly retaining figures – our bodies insulate with a swelling or bloating (as we call it) that has a hard time detoxing from these harsh elements. Those few extra pounds you have a hard time shedding? it’s more than likely inflammation. Involving turmeric in your daily diet invites it to come to the rescue whether you seek to press pause on the process of aging, or combat something as serious as arthritis.

Something you must note about properly digesting turmeric is it is a fat soluble, meaning it dissolves best with fat for your body to be able to reap its benefits. As simple as adding black pepper or coconut oil to your fresh turmeric, or insuring the turmeric pills you purchase have this already will make it easier for the spice to work its magic.

Whether you incorporate our bed time turmeric concoction into your diet, find a daily vitamin, or sprinkle it into your cooking, this vibrant-hued root is nothing but a miracle worker.
