Divine feminine energy is within you now
- Tracey Hancock
Within us all (blokes included!) there is an abundance of feminine energy. You'll recognise this energy easily...
- It's nurturing, caring and compassionate.
- It's unconditional love.
- It's about being (not doing).
Do you know it?
Even if you aren't allowing it in your life now, you remember how it feels.
Balancing the masculine and feminine energies
In a world where it's easy to get caught up in being busy and constantly doing (very much masculine energy), now more than ever we need to better balance the two types of energy.
Balance doesn't mean 50% of each. Balance means the right mix of masculine and feminine energy for you to thrive.
You see we need both, they're two parts of a whole. Together the two energies help us to support our own health.
I spent years living in a space dominated by masculine energy. It happened slowly, over time and before I knew it, I'd disconnected from my feminine energy. The change happened in response to so many things including the environment in which I was working and the pressure I put on myself to advance my career. I pushed hard. I worked hard. Constant pressure and plenty of it was the name of the game!
In response to all the pushing and the pressure I liberally piled on myself, I lost connection with the feminine energy within me and it hurt. I had abandoned that part of me that was nurturing and compassionate. I poured so much of myself into doing the 'right' thing for everyone else and into proving to others that I was good enough that I had nothing left for me. Actually that's not quite true, I did have something left for me - criticism, judgment and a whole heap of "I'm not good enough" talk.
I didn't recognise myself and I didn't feel like me anymore. I had also burnt out (thank goodness - because that started my journey home to myself).
Choose to be even more of you now
We, you and I, have a choice, always. At any moment we can choose a different way to be, a different way to show up, a different way to live life.
At that point of burnout I had a choice. I could keep doing what I was doing, living and working in the way I had been but that was likely to end badly. If I thought burnout was bad, the consequences of pushing on would be far worse.
The other choice was to take a breath and reconnect with my whole self, and that meant allowing space for the feminine energy to flow. I'm so very glad that was what I chose to do!
It wasn't easy to make space - there were a whole lot of beliefs and behaviours that needed to be released and changes that needed to be made. I was constantly drawn back to doing, to being busy and pushing hard. But the more aware I became of my energy, the more I would allow space to be even more of me now.
The greatest shift was the level of kindness and compassion I had toward myself. It meant I could stand confidently and start to set boundaries, to say "no", and to see that I was enough - I didn't have to constantly prove myself.
Now it's your turn...
I invite you to lovingly and with compassion for yourself, explore the mix of energy you're allowing in your life. Are you constantly doing or are you allowing yourself to be? Is the mix serving you well? Now explore what changes you need to make to the mix so you support your health well.
And remember, you don't need to be a mum or a woman to embrace this beautiful feminine energy, it's available to us all now. It's always been there, waiting for you.
