Feminine energy has long been known to be a potent healer.
This energy is the source of our connection to creation and unconditional love, and is our union with our mothers and Mother Earth. In a primarily patriarchal society, feminine energy is the matriarch. She is gentle, kind and full of love—but also fierce, loyal and driven.
We all embody both masculine and feminine energy, however, just at different levels and degrees. Regardless of your gender, or the gender you associate with, you are actually both man and woman simultaneously.
Developing a harmonious relationship between the masculine and feminine energies in the body is how we can step into our full healing power. It is not important to balance the energies to be equal, rather balance them to your personal definition of complete, secure, and inspired.
What we are experiencing now, across the world, is a reawakening and reactivation of feminine energy in all beings. The compassionate parts of our hearts are waking up to the changes that need to be made in the way we eat, how we treat humanity and the planet, and in the love we express.
It is through feminine energy that we can bring harmony to our minds, bodies and souls—helping us to direct that harmony to others and the earth.
What’s the difference between feminine and masculine energy?
A swirling, undulating, free flowing line changing directions with fluidity, and taking time to reach the destination.
Femininity rules the right side of the brain: being, understanding, feeling and nurturing.
Manifestor, open to receive, stable, patient, gentle, creator, slow, nurturing, caregiver
A straight, logical line, with sharp corners on the fastest route possible to the destination.
Masculinity rules the left side of the brain: logic, thought, risk and rush.
Seeker, hunter, doer, rush, fast, action, risk taking, direct, entrepreneurial
The feminine and masculine are equal and opposing forces.
There are periods of time when you will step more into your masculine energy to channel strength, focus and risk taking. And there will be times where you step more into your feminine energy to channel patience, kindness, and sense your intuition. And as energy is malleable, we can sway one way or another when needed—in times of healing, for example.
You can amplify the healing feminine energy within you many ways but here are some of the most effective:
Go into Nature
Because feminine energy is deeply connected with the earth, going out into nature and intentionally connecting with the energy of the earth with conjure more feminine power within you. Earthing is a fantastic way to ground down, release and connect. Nature itself is healing, but when we go to nature with the intention of blossoming into the feminine, we not only become empowered but we also soften and release resistance.
Embrace Your Sensuality
Feminine energy is the embodiment of sensual. We are sexual beings and that goes beyond procreation. It is important to honor our sexuality and tap into the massively creative energy that is associated with being sexual and sensual. When our senses are heightened and we are in flow with sexual energy, we release blockages in the root and sacral chakras and connect more deeply with our feminine side.
Honor Your Emotions
You don’t have to wax poetic about love or force yourself to cry during sad movies, but allowing yourself to feel and honor the emotions coursing through you at any given time, rather than denying them and suppressing them, will help you develop more feminine energy. As humans we experience a vast array of emotions daily, and by giving these emotions space to be expressed without judgement, we open ourselves to the magic that follows.
Feminine energy can be directed to our physical, mental and emotional bodies to help them soften and open.
