Did you know that The Divine Feminine is not about the feminist movement? Rather it is about something that we are all naturally born with…both men and women!
It is a positive expression of the feminine side that exists in all of us. A sacred, sensual aspect of the self that helps us to tap into our “female” side, which is gentle, creative, nurturing, intuitive, empathetic, community, sensuality and collaboration.
It is a way of being!
Not part of day to day living it is something that we can’t see but rather that which we intuitively feel and experience.
There is also a Divine Masculine energy that helps us all (men and women) to act…to take action, to use logic & reasoning, and which gives us our strength and ability to be assertive, firm and fearless.
When these two energies are in harmony working WITH each other we experience divine balance where we feel content, aligned, powerful and “right” with an inner sense of knowing that we are part of the world, each other and the creators great plan.
An imbalance of the Divine Feminine and Masculine energies causes disruption in life’s path and may lead to us feeling unbalanced, confused, helpless and lethargic. When there is a dominance of masculine energy one can find anger, power struggles, control issues, violence, and cynicism.
The “Ida Nadi” governs the feminine, left side of the body, which in turn activates the right (visual, intuitive and creative) side of the brain. The “Pingala Nadi” governs the masculine, right side of the body and activates the left (logical) side of the brain.
So how do we overcome an imbalance between our divine feminine and masculine sides and how do we get them to work in perfect sync with each other?
For many years now the world has functioned with a general imbalance and dominance of masculine energy in society. Women and The Divine Feminine have taken (or forced to take) back seats for centuries. But …slowly but surely the tide is turning and women are starting to envision, explore, exercise and enjoy the power of the Divine Feminine. It is becoming an exhilarating time to be a woman.
There are many ways to express and live The Divine Feminine in your life…here are a few:
- GET TO KNOW YOURSELF! Develop self-awareness and self love…..we rush through our day trying to successfully make it to the next “thing” or we just damage control our way through life. STOP! Look inwards, and see who you really are. Listen to that quite voice in your head that is you.
- Accept and embrace Your Emotions. Most of us were taught that what we are feeling is wrong. Be vulnerable with yourself and allow yourself to feel and be open to receiving. As women, we have the power to receive, amplify, and the to give back which is the key to a kinder world ...
- Don’t depend on others for validation and self worth
- Accept your imperfections and love your Body. ... Make pleasure your priority and enjoy the physical pleasures in life. ...indulge yourself from time to time…it’s all about being kind…to yourself and others!
- Trust Your Intuition and your inner wisdom ....listen to your inner voice and go with your gut. You know more than you think you do!
- Get creative. Use your imagination, draw, dance, sing create…. and allow your playful side to be seen.
- Have Gratitude for Life. ... its all about embracing and appreciating the here and now….remember our Mindfulness Blog a few weeks back?
- Pray – for yourself and for others. There is no better way to heal your own heart and wounds than to pray for healing for others.
- Create a Sacred Space.... Have a safe comfortable place to go where only you can be….embrace regular times of stillness, quiet, meditation and contemplation to bring out the Divine Feminine that is in you.
