Sexual Empowerment for Women
the Goddess Within
believe that this simple Qi Gong exercise to increase Women's Vitality, Sexual
Health, and Pleasure has its roots in tantra and can be performed once or twice
daily, except during menstruation or pregnancy.
The Female Deer Exercise tones the female endocrine system, increasing overall vitality,
sensuality, centeredness, and turns uncomfortable bottled-up sexual desire into
relaxed, enjoyable sensuality. It cultivates sexual energy, improves overall
vitality and mental alertness, improves sexual enjoyment, and reduces or
eliminates many common women's ailments. It is simple to perform, takes only
a few minutes and is very pleasurable.
Together, the two phases of the female deer exercise spread sexual pleasure and
energy throughout the body, increasing the potential for clitoral, vaginal, and
whole-body orgasm. By regulating female hormones and increasing bloodflow, they
also help to prevent or cure PMS, irregular menstruation, anemia, sterility,
ovarian cysts, vaginal discharge, fibroids, incontinence, and more.
It should be noted that along with increasing sexual health, enjoyment, mental
clarity, and overall vitality, the exercise increases libido and fertility, so
appropriate precautions should be taken to prevent an unplanned pregnancy!
You need to be in a warm, comfortable space free of draughts and interruptions.
Then sit in siddhasana (cross legs on the floor or on a cushion, with one heel
softly pressed back against the opening of the vagina, exerting a gentle
pressure on the clitoris, the other foot resting on the floor next to the shin).
If the posture is difficult (because of inflexible hips or knee pain), you may
also use a small rubber ball between the heel and the vagina to provide this
There are two steps
First, a pleasurable circular massage of the breasts, and second, a pelvic
exercise called 'holding firm,' similar to a kegel exercise.
The Breast Massage
Remove all clothing and jewelry, sit in the posture described above. Warm your
hands by rubbing them vigorously together. Now place them over lower side of
Lightly rub in, upward and outward circles. The hands travel together up the
inside of the breasts toward the face, then outwards, downwards, inwards, and
upwards again. Lightly chafe the skin in circular motions with the nipples at
the center of the circle. Do not hold the breasts and move them - skim over the
surface of the skin.
Enjoy the sensations and connect with the warm pleasurable feelings. This is
important to increase the connections between the nerves and endocrine glands in
the breasts and the center of the brain and the pineal and pituitary glands in
your head. Plus, it sensualizes you, giving your cognitive mind a short
break. For general purposes of vitality, health and increased sensitivity, 36
repetitions are recommended, once or twice a day.
- The breast massage stage of the deer exercise stimulates the nerves of the
nipples and breasts. This in turn increases circulation, releases the hormones
oxytocin, DHEA, and more, and increases neural development and blood and
lymphatic circulation. It can increase both fullness and bouyancy of the bust
by strengthening suspensory ligaments and muscles while increasing blood and
lymphatic movement in the breasts...
Holding Firm - the pelvic contraction.
First, rest your hands in your lap. Form your hands into fists by encircling
your thumbs in the other fingers. This activates a number of important
acupressure points. Next, tighten the muscles of the vagina as though
contracting it. Keep breathing in a deep, relaxed manner while holding the
contraction as long as you comfortably can. You only need to do this step once
after each 36-rotation breast massage.
During the contraction, try to keep the anal sphincter and stomach muscles
relaxed while squeezing and lifting only the vaginal muscles. (You can learn to
isolate the muscles by feeling them contract against the pads of your fingers.
Oh - smile and enjoy the experience while you contract your muscles! Feel the
connection between the tingle in the pelvic floor, the tingle in your spine, and
the tingle in your brain. enjoy it! If it's hard for you to locate the muscles
to contract and lift, just think of the muscles you use to stop urination in
mid-stream, and contract!
- The pelvic exercise tones strengthens the vaginal muscles and the
ligaments supporting the ovaries and fallopian tubes, increases fertility, and
and increases pelvic bloodflow and relaxed sensitivity.
