Recently, there have been a lot of buzz around women being feminine, embracing femininity and tuning into feminine energy. In the last 5 years, I have met several women on a business and personal levels, and I was always curious to their take on femininity. Many of them did not exactly know what it is, many of them thought they are already feminine because they wear sexy clothes and many of them thought that being feminine is weak!
Having studied the teachings of the divine feminine since the last 5 years, seeing the positive impact that it has had in my life, I diskovered that it is my sacred purpose to bring a fresh new perspective to femininity!
It is important that each one of us women learn about the healthy and the unhealthy qualities of the feminine energy as it will help us to have more compassion and insight into our own behaviors and that of others. It will also help us to catch ourselves when we begin to go down that slippery road of negativity.
Every single human being has both masculine and feminine energies in them. Naturally, a woman’s primary energy is feminine and a man’s primary energy is masculine. But in this modern day busy masculine world, many women have adapted to the masculine energy than the feminine energy in order to succeed. It is an illusion because living life in masculine energy has drained women of their real essence, intuition, health, and sensuality.
Deep within women are now longing to surrender into their natural essence i.e. the feminine essence without being seen as weak or lazy or lesser than. On the contrary, healthy feminine energy is radiant, magnetic and full of love. This innate power is in each one of us to embrace and honor.
We as women need to learn to surrender into this space and become part of the global healing of the Divine Feminine.
It does not end with women. Men too are longing to embrace their healthy inner feminine energy that will allow them to express their true emotions authentically and simultaneously step up into their mature masculine. Since feminine energy is the intrinsic essence of us women, we can become their guardian of light by first recognizing this unlimited potential of the feminine energy within us.
We women have done a great job in building up our masculine muscle but to become empowered in our true expression, we need to learn to balance this over developed masculine muscle with our underdeveloped feminine muscle.
Below are some qualities of the healthy and unhealthy feminine energy that will allow you to become aware of your imbalance so that you can make more empowering choices in life. When you see the unhealthy feminine energy acting out in your life, you will be able to stop yourself from going down the slippery road of negativity.
Healthy Feminine: flowing, intuitive, healthy boundaries, unconditional love, compassion, radiant, creative, being, intuitive, magnetic, nurturing, sensual, patient, unfolding, surrendering, feelings, patient, energy, wisdom, birth/beginnings.
Unhealthy Feminine: needing external validation, superficial, demanding, sulky, jealous, manipulative, contractive, self-sacrifice, victim, needy, insecure, game playing, erratic, emotionally hungry, desperate, scattered, fearful, seductive, possessive, vindictive, rigid.
Awareness is the first step to making a change. So begin to notice how you are in your day to day life and if it is really serving you.
When you become aware that you are heading towards your unhealthy feminine, ask yourself –‘How can I make it better?’
This one simple empowering question will open up doors for your awareness and answers. One of the benefits of this modern lifestyle is that we have plenty of resources and information available around us – let it be online, through coaching, workshops, etc. As they say – when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
