When we refer to the Divine Feminine – what do we mean? Quite simply, it is a form of energy that all human beings possess. It’s known by many names such as shakti, yin, and lunar energy, and is often connected symbolically with the moon, Gaia (Mother Earth), and water. Just like the Divine Masculine, the Divine Feminine is “one half” of the Spirit of Life and needs both energies to have the whole. It’s no secret that there have been imbalances between the masculine and the feminine energies for some time now. I believe there to be a universal shift occurring to support the divine feminine rising to meet more equally with the masculine.
Every one of us possesses masculine and feminine energies and they both have value. Masculine energy is more dominant, direct, and structured and it is a “doing” energy. Feminine energy is receptive, intuitive, ever-changing, and fluid and is seen as a “being” energy. The gentleness of the Divine Feminine can be an important part of everyone’s wholeness…men and women alike.
The conversation that needs to be had is not about creating more imbalance between the genders, but about bringing both masculine and feminine energies into a more equal and harmonious state. Each of us has the opportunity to surrender into some of those more feminine tendencies to help heal the world. As a collective, we can practice more love, compassion, patience and understanding, to bring about more peace and less conflict. As individuals, we can consciously live more fully in our own divine feminine energy by resisting less, receiving more willingly, and learning to accept things exactly as they are in the present moment.
I know that when I relax into my divine feminine and stop forcing everything, I experience more freedom and flow. It feels effortless to focus my energy on more being and less doing. I invite you to awaken your divine feminine energies to find a deeper connection to your intuition and be more in alignment with your higher self.
