Today’s society has transformed many women into doers, performers, perfectionists and over-achievers (if you’ve ever worked in the corporate world, I’m sure you know what I mean).
Women are asked and expected to do everything and be everywhere and often times they wear too many hats: mothers, daughters, friends, co-workers, leaders, providers, bosses etc. The modern women lead families, businesses, corporations and teams.
With today’s societal norms and expectations, this can get frustrating and exhausting and it disconnects us from our feminine energy.
You see, we all have a mix of masculine and feminine energy inside ourselves. That’s valid for men as well. The problem occurs when we so much focus on the doing side and forget how just to be. Do nothing for a while. We concentrate on giving others our love, time, money, care and attention and we don’t know how to receive the same things from others.
The masculine energy is about doing, achieving, setting goals and priorities, the objective mind, fighting and competing.
The feminine energy is about receiving, experimenting, the intuitive mind, nourishing and collaboration.
We need both energies in our everyday lives. For example, when we make saving plans and money calculations, we need to step into our masculine energy. When we take care of our body, mind and soul and recharge our batteries with a healthy dose of self-care, we step into our feminine energy.
I am inviting you to watch the below video. I had so much fun listening to this woman! Very inspiring!
Let us restore our femininity and get reconnect to our true nature. You don’t have to act masculine to be a strong woman!
And now, I would like to hear from you. Are there any areas in your life where you feel you are playing masculine?
Feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or post your comments below.
And if you know other women who might benefit from this information, please share. Thank you.
