Healing our Internal Masculine and Feminine Energies
Regardless of our gender, we are all made of masculine and feminine energies. We can see this in nature as well. Masculine and feminine go in pair, they nourish each other. This is part of the duality that makes everything in our world.
Over the years, the feminine has been disrespected, dishonored and dominated by the wounded masculine and the patriarchy. The world has gotten out of the natural balance.
Looking at the energies within us and trying to balance them by reintegrating and embodying more of the feminine energy is the key to much healthier relationships and a more balanced & better world!
Both masculine and feminine energies have an unhealthy, wounded aspect and a healthy, divine aspect. The wounded part comes from ego, a place of fear and darkness and always leads to pain.
When we shine light on these aspects of ourselves, when we become aware of what is unhealthy/wounded, we can heal and transform this into healthy and divine energy.
When we become aware of our unhealthy patterns, of our wounded self, we can stop recreating the same patterns, stop projecting them out onto others and heal our relationships.
The unhealthy masculine feeds the unhealthy feminine and vice versa and we encounter this in our relationships as well. Which usually creates co-dependency and never ends well.
But when we are aware of this, the unhealthy masculine & feminine can heal and become healthy again. The healthy masculine and the healthy feminine grow together and become united as one. When the two are healthy, we are healed from the inside out. These energies become divine.
It is up to us to step into the divine masculine and feminine.
The shift is happening, the feminine is rising, our world is craving for more balance. We all have the power to step into the highest expressions of ourselves to create change.
Below are the characteristics of healthy/divine masculine and feminine and unhealthy/wounded masculine and feminine. What we can all do, is see where we recognize ourselves in the wounded lists. We all have some wounds that lead to unhealthy behaviors in our masculine energy as well as feminine energy regardless of our gender.
This is a good indicator for us as to where we still have some healing to do and where we can step into our divine energies and embody them.
Remember that both energies go together so if you cultivate your healthy feminine, it will help grow your healthy masculine and vice versa.
This is a great tool of self-discovery and can be very valuable in our relationships. Once we are whole and complete in our masculine and feminine energy (when they are both healthy within us), we can create and nourish beautiful, healthy and successful relationships and this is then mirrored in our world. That’s how we create change. By starting with ourselves.
