embracing-yin-and-yang

There are two energies within us and outside of us at all times.

  • Yin & Yang
  • Feminine & Masculine
  • Dark & Light
  • Fear & Love
  • Logic & Creativity
  • Movement & Stillness

This is something that been taught in many ancient traditions, however it is not something that our modern society has accommodated for or taught us……..

These energies, they exist in both men and women:

  • One is the masculine, yang in nature, action and doing focussed, connected to the sun & the season of summer
  • The other is the feminine, yin in nature, rest & being intuitive, connected to the moon & the season of winter

Neither is better or more important that the other. They are both needed to thrive as human beings.

When balanced, the masculine can be brilliant at helping us bring our dreams to actualisation, purpose oriented and help us to get out and moving in the day to day. There’s a sense of structure and support to this energy.

When balanced, the feminine has a grace and flow to her. She’s creative, intuitive and knows how to take really good care of herself. She feels nourished, rested & trusting

The challenge that we face in our society today is that the masculine, yang, doing, action taking energy has been over-emphasised…….to a place of becoming toxic.

It is literally making us sick mentally and physically

The masculine energy when out of balance and toxic can become hustling, pushy, dominating, divisive, separating and at times a destructive energy. It constantly wants more & to achieve more. It isn’t satiated.

And when it has power behind it, it can take from the earth, animals, or from other people for its own gain. It can become focussed on power and control in all its many forms.

And we can see this operating within ourselves at times of stress and we can see it reflected in our governments, corporations, institutions, how we are are treating the earth, animals, & each other.

There’s a few reasons for this:

  • We’ve over emphasised achievement, getting ahead, & results, to the detriment of our health
  • We’ve been over feeding the lacking/fearful part of self that wants more and is never satiated. The ego.
  • Through all the over-working & over-achieving we’re exhausted. Resulting in reactivity, addictions and a loud inner critic….
  • And so many of us have completely disconnected from the feminine aspect of self, from our body, from the present moment, creativity & intuition

And when this happens we can be so results focussed that it can lead to a productivity and achievement addiction at the cost of our health, of healthy relationships and our ultimate joy.

We can find it impossible to relax or have a sense of guilt to rest & take care of our own needs. And this in turn can lead to burnout…….

And in all of this ‘busyness’, we can leave no space for the deepest parts of self; our intuition, inspiration and creativity to be experienced.

In effect we can find ourselves becoming robotic and existing. Disconnected from our bodies, our hearts and deeper wisdom

However, there is an anditote to this way of living…..

And the way back is to nurture the feminine.

  • To start to unravel the stories that prevent you from connecting with these aspects of you.
  • To create space. To set boundaries. To connect in with your values & live from them. To journal. To dance. To sing. To connect to passion. To ‘be’ in your body
  • And then allow the masculine aspect of self – to receive this intuition, this joy and transmute it into your intentions, your purpose & your gift/s to the world

Slowly slowly together we are beginning to awaken from the spell.

From the conditioning that has us believe that we need to constantly push and strive to be worthy.

And to realise that to experience joy, passion and aliveness is our birthright

And that by leaning into these parts of ourselves, this is when we find the divine union, the wholeness, & the heaven on earth.

This is how we begin to elevate our energy on earth!
