It is women’s month and I want to chat about what it is like being a woman at this time. We have grown so much in what we can achieve and roles we can take on, but I feel we still struggle to cloak ourselves in feminine energy.
Just to clarify my thoughts on feminine energy:
It is the “being” energy, in contrast to the masculine “doing energy”. When you are in this “being” energy, you are in receptive mode and allow experiences, and life itself, to fill you up. This is again opposite to masculine energy, which is a forward-moving, penetrative force that “gets things done”.
When you are in your feminine energy, you are not busy doing, but instead enjoying that which is before you.
This idea of “not doing and just being” may feel like an alien and almost annoying concept at first, especially to those of us who have trained ourselves to be in our masculine state 24/7. However, it helps to remember that reconnecting with our femininity is the key to restoring that balance that is missing today from so many women’s lives.
Ditch the ”big girl panties” for a minute
We have all heard:
‘’Just put your big girl pants on, and just do it!’’
The reality is we don’t have to become something else, other than our true self to navigate the world. A world that is still predominantly designed from a masculine energy blueprint.
Have you heard things like: ”don’t get emotional; or even, man up?”
What I have witnessed unfold in the last years, has confirmed my belief that women can be the best leaders in the world when they are truthful about their feminine energy and navigating their masculine side with integrity. Take my “girl crush” Jacinda Ardern, NZ Prime Minister. She leads from a place of feminine energy, showing emotion, nurturing her nation, making changes to protect, and standing up to bully tactics.
“One of the criticisms I’ve faced over the year is that I’m not aggressive enough or assertive enough or maybe somehow because I’m empathetic, it means I’m weak.
I totally rebel against that. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT you cannot be both compassionate and strong.”
– Jacinda Ardern – Prime Minster of NZ
What do YOU need?
Now look at yourself as a woman, what do you need to become to have a voice and to be taken seriously in your work environment? Do you need to take on more masculine energy to get the job done? If so, how difficult is it to return back to just “being” in your feminine side?
Do you give yourself permission to rest and restore your feminine side? Do you feel safe to do that? If not, which underlying beliefs are keeping you from not being your true self?
Things like: ”I am not ____ enough to be ____ .” (insert the blanks).
If you step into your true self where you know your worth and value – you will put healthy boundaries in place, where you can thrive and be your true self.
If you find yourself in a season or at a crossroads where you are ready to step into and own your life, in all its feminine beauty, please have a look at my RTT packages.
