How to balance feminine and masculine energies
Everything in nature has a male and a female expression, such as in trees, fruits, animals, and also humans. In the human it is the feminine or negative side that is passive, but magnetic. It attracts to itself, it absorbs and stores potential energy. The male or positive side is electric or charged. When there is a union between the electric male and the magnetic female, the couple provides a conduit for cosmic force, which flows through them into the earth plane with tremendous power. This power radiated by them, polarises the surrounding atmosphere.
However, understanding these energies makes connecting to your inner wisdom easier. When your energies are in harmony you'll feel a greater sense of peace and compassion. You'll feel more energized and connect better with others. Of course, you’re not necessarily always the same way. Different situations bring out different aspects of your individuality. Therefore, throughout life, you experience the yin-yang nature of energies. It’s also important to understand that if you identify as a masculine woman or feminine man, it’s not a sign of weakness.Nor something to be ashamed of. It is in fact, very natural and has much deeper roots!
It is also said that the masculine and feminine energies reside in two of our 72,000 energy channels. These two channels are called Ida and Pingala.
When there is a union between the electric male and the magnetic female, the couple provides a conduit for cosmic force, which flows through them into the earth plane with tremendous power.
This power radiated by them, polarises the surrounding atmosphere. The female at this time is surrounded by a corona of greenish-blue light. There is actually a powerful cosmic force surrounding us at all times that seeks expression through polarisation or sexual union. Therefore, because sex invokes a cosmic force it takes on a sacred meaning, as well
as providing a vehicle for the incoming soul.
Sex cannot be treated as an exercise in eroticism with an orgasmic overtone. Sex, solely due to the abuse of it, has brought to humans disease, suffering and death. Basically, there is nothing wrong with sex. It is the human misinterpretation and misuse of sex that is wrong.
Giving is an action of our divine masculine, and receiving is an action of our divine feminine, and a balance of both energies is when we feel harmonious within. It’s simple, yet oddly challenging to achieve.
Rediscover & embrace your femininity
What is femininity anyways? What does it mean to be a woman, especially in today’s times? women feel overwhelmed, confused, and unsure of how to balance their lives and how to navigate the terrain of femininity.
Ask yourself these questions
What is femininity for you?
When do you feel most feminine?
What do you do on a daily basis to connect to your femininity?
Ways to Cultivate Your Feminine Energy
Feminine energy nurtures qualities: intuition, creativity, compassion, understanding. There’s a receptive and open feeling in this type of energy. It’s fast and energized. When feminine energy is too dominant you feel unsupported, unfocused, scattered and unstable. Without purpose or direction and therefore feel no sense of success.
Add a 10-20 minute meditation to your daily routine. Let your intellect take a rest while you make space to connect with your body, your natural presence, and your intuition.
REFLECT AND RECONNECT
Many of us are so busy that we rarely take time to listen to what is going on inside of us. We lose touch with our deeper selves. It is important to internally connect to who you are. You can talk to yourself and write down your thoughts and feelings or go to a therapist, seek a professional help to explore your thoughts and feelings. By connecting back to yourself, you are diving into your deeper, internal, feminine side. If we're always acting in an extroverted way, it creates a schism within. We lose touch with our deeper selves. All you have to do is internally connect to who you are. An excellent way to do this is to start therapy. When you work with a therapist to explore your thoughts and feelings, you're essentially diving into your deeper, internal, feminine side.
BE OPEN TO RECEIVING
As women, we have the power to receive, amplify and give back. Give a woman love and she will return it tenfold. Give a woman hate and we all know what happens. Allow yourself to receive more. Do not be afraid to ask for favor and support when you need them, get yourself gifts, pamper yourself and make receiving a vital part of your experience.
MOVE YOUR BODY AND TAKE CARE OF IT
Movement creates fluidity between your mind and body and shakes things up! Try dancing, stretching, or even going for a lighthearted stroll. Your body is a temple, it is the only way to bring new life into this world and should therefore be treated as such. Take care of your body. Indulge yourself in self-care. Do things that feel good physically. Such pleasures related to feminine energy are dancing, massages and yoga. The feminine flows and when you move your body, you access this energy. It will also allow you to access your emotions and express yourself fully.
HONE YOUR EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION
While the masculine is defined by logic, the feminine is expressed through emotions. We all have emotional selves, but many of us haven't been taught how to understand our feelings. If you're confused about your emotional process, don't worry; you can learn to be more attuned to yourself. You do this by listening to how you feel and boosting your emotional intelligence. As you get to know your feeling states, you'll automatically begin to feel more whole.
Take a bubble bath. Light some candles and slowly sip your favorite tea. Starfish on the floor and listen to soft music. Take time for you and only you. Let go of doing and simply BE.
Feminine energy is not about achieving and achieving; it’s about co-creating, which involves more flow, more fun, more music, more gentleness, more creativity and more collaboration to reach the same great results. Express yo'self! Let go of control and forget about the end product. Grab some paints, a lump of clay, anything, and immerse yourself in the joy of making solely to express your creative energy.
HAVE FEMALE ONLY TIME
This is a great way to restore your feminine energy. It is a mistake when a woman leaves her girl friends completely for a man. You can flow together with other females to align your thoughts, actions and feelings, which is empowering. It also gives you insight on how being feminine looks and feels like and you can pass on your unique wisdom to each other.
SPEND TIME IN NATURE
Nature moves at a much slower and steadier pace than our rushed and frantic modern lives.
Places can be characterized as either masculine or feminine, depending on their overarching characteristics. The feminine is life force energy. Places like the forest, jungle, park and the ocean are abundant with natural feminine energy. Go there when you are feeling out of synchronization and in need of revitalization. It is the perfect example of a doing/being balance, and when we spend time in nature, our minds and bodies can re-attune to the natural rhythms of life. Find a park or go on a hike and relax with all of the sounds, smells and sights. See if you can appreciate all of the beauty and nourishment that nature offers.
Sharing is where vulnerability begins. When you open up and get real, from the heart, you open doors to connect more deeply with yourself and everyone around you.
Set aside a whole day where there's nothing on your agenda and let yourself wake up and FLOW through it. Don't plan anything, just let your body and intuition guide you to what's next, listening to what feels good.
The masculine side of you is drawn to the future; planning and using logic to get there. Be present to the emotions and sensations you are feeling right now. This is where the juice of life comes from. Meditate, eat mindfully or do something that brings you joy, like salsa dancing.
VALUE SPONTANEITY AND PLAY
Let's be honest: We don't value vacation, connection, downtime, or rest as much as we should! We're overworked (over-masculinized), and therefore don't often experience the spontaneous joys of life. Too many of us wait until our next vacation to feel relaxed and playful again. Don't wait that long! You can have mini-vacations every day. Prioritize downtime and time for relaxation. Read books, listen to music, do yoga, and simply enjoy the moment. When you get out of your overworked state, you'll feel more like yourself again.
FORCE YOURSELF TO TRANSFORM.
Some of us think of the feminine as being quiet and rejuvenating, but that's only half the story. Feminine energy is bold as well—it's the force of transformation. If things in your life are no longer working for you, it is feminine energy that surges to make a change. This can be dramatic! Destruction comes before creation; we must say goodbye to the old to welcome the new. While this process of transformation can feel unruly and scary at times, it is necessary. After all, we're changing all the time. Without the powerful movement of feminine energy, both soothing and unnerving, we would remain stagnant. And nobody wants that. It's easy to lose touch with your feminine side, but as you can see, it's a necessary aspect of who you are. If you feel burned out, overworked, fragmented, or exhausted, you're in desperate need of feminine energy to restore, inspire, and enliven you. Implement these practices, and the feminine will bring you back to life. If you're wanting to get spiritual with it, consider exploring your connection to the Divine Feminine.
TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE AND YOUR DREAMS
People who take complete responsibility for their lives experience joy and control of circumstances. They are able to make choices because they understand that they are responsible for their choices.
