My Clit is a Compass…And Yours Can Be Too

“My Clit is My Compass! My Clit is My Compass!” I sing as I gallop around my house. I’m 32 but I will always be completely smitten by my amazing body, so much so that my excitement overflows in ways that may appear to someone else as perhaps childish. I’ve spent years working through “shame gremlins” as Brené Brown puts it, and years finding my childlike innocence around sexuality that I’d smothered for so long. This lighter, happier me is innocent in her sexual and sensual self, knowing that anything my body feels is a true gift to be enjoyed.

So now you are wondering how a clit can be a compass. You may not have realized until this moment that our clitorises can do more than “just” bring incredible pleasure to our bodies. Actually, our clits have another superpower! They are designed to work with our intuition. When you become very in tune with energy you too can learn how to use your clit to help guide you in all areas of your life. Over the last decade I’ve delved into Reiki, Kundalini, Tantra, and Taoism; you’ll have to explore and find what feels right for you so that you can work on connecting to energy and sensation in your own body. Being guided by our clits is actually something all women are born knowing how to do but we “forget” due to being shamed about our bodies, sexuality, and feelings when we are children.

So what does it mean to have a clit function as a compass? Your clit will tell you which direction to go in your life. When you ask yourself a question (any question!), your clit will start buzzing/tingling/vibrating/pulsing if the answer is a YES. This is your intuition coming through your body. Pleasure is a yes. It’s that simple! What happens when the answer is no? Well, for me nothing happens. My clit remains still. I usually feel a “no” elsewhere in my body, perhaps my solar plexus.

I can’t help but wonder if this “secret” is tied into female genital mutilation. Patriarchal cultures wanting to take away not only a woman’s pleasure but intuition as well? Seems very plausible to me.

To become more intuitive and connected to your body, try out the exercises below. I’d love to hear feedback about how this goes for you! If you’re interested in more connection with your body, please check out my workshops in the Austin area. I also offer private sessions in person and via Skype for Jade Egg techniques and Solo Tantra.

Exercises to Awaken Your Clitoral Compass:

1. Cup your yoni (that’s Sanskrit for “vulva”). Breathe slowly and deeply. Imagine being your hand feeling your yoni. Just feel (without moving your hand or fingers). Breathe there for a minute or so. Now switch to being your yoni feeling your hand. Yes, imagine BEING your yoni and feeling what your hand feels like. Breathe here for another minute. You can switch back and forth.

2. Lie on your back and cup your yoni with both hands. Breathe deeply and slowly. Imagine that you are breathing all the way into your hands…your breath is traveling from your nose into your chest, then into your belly, then into your pelvis, and then out your genitals into your hands. Do this until you can feel the energy here with your breath.

3. Visualize white or orange light at your clit. Allow the light to grow bigger with every breath you take. Imagine feeling the warmth of this light heating your clit from the inside outwards.

Happy navigating! <3

XOXO,
