Divine feminine power is essential to living a balanced life. It allows you to step into your fierceness while balancing it with softness.
But, in our society, feminine power isn’t given the respect it deserves. Softness isn’t valued. Instead, our society highly rewards masculine energy, which includes traits such as:
When you push through challenges and keep going no matter what – our society honors that. When you keep taking action after action, never giving yourself time to pause and reflect, our culture says, “Great job, keep going!”
But, after all that effort, it feels like you haven’t gotten anywhere. The stress on your shoulders piles up. You experience burnout while the relationships with your loved ones suffer.
I believe you’re experiencing an imbalance between your feminine and masculine power. I’ve seen this happen time and again throughout my years as a spiritual counselor and someone who has studied cultures that value feminine power.
To be clear, both energies are essential to life, and both energies are powerful. But there needs to be a balance. We tend to overuse our masculinity simply because our society encourages it.
But you can bring order back into your life by understanding the divine feminine power and energy within you. By embracing the qualities and traits of this inner power, you’ll stop feeling burnt out and find the balance you’ve been looking for.
Divine feminine power is an energy that lives within all of us. It provides a much-needed balance to the masculine energy. Through the lens of Buddhist psychology and shamanic cultures, we often associate the divine feminine power with energetic qualities and values such as:
Even though feminine power is not based on gender, it can be easy to define the qualities of divine feminine power by the traits you see in women. You can balance out your masculine energy by calling on your feminine power and embracing those qualities.
By learning to understand and embrace your feminine power, you can assess the masculine power within you. But like every area of life, balance is key. When there’s no balance, problems and dysfunctions occur.
Masculine power – which is applauded and encouraged in our society – often shows up as traits and qualities such as:
When in partnership with the feminine, these traits are healthy. Because with an equal balance of both masculine and feminine power, you’re able to live a healthy and stable life.
But imbalances start to occur when you rely too heavily on the masculine while neglecting your divine feminine power.
Imagine life as the river. The current of the water represents the natural cycle of life. The boat is you, and the two oars you hold represent masculine and feminine power.
When your masculine and feminine powers work together (to navigate the current of life), the boat moves smoothly down the river.
But when you rely on one oar excessively (the masculine) while you neglect the other (the feminine), the boat can only move in circles. This leads to frustration, exhaustion, and stagnation.
Sometimes, the current of the river can change. So it’s normal to rely on one oar more than the other during certain seasons of life.
But over-reliance on either power leads to stagnation in your journey.
The overcompensation of masculine power can often result from past trauma and soul wounds. This pain can stem from stressful experiences in childhood or any stage of life.
When these traumas are left unhealed, they can cause disuse or rejection of the divine feminine power.
Most of these traumas are unconscious, and you’re unaware of their hold on you. All you feel is:
Past trauma and soul wounds cause you to believe (on an unconscious level) that being in your divine feminine power is unsafe. But when you heal at a soul level, you will naturally step into your feminine power.
Healing your divine feminine soul wounds and past trauma doesn’t have to be intimidating – and you don’t have to do it alone.
As a spiritual counselor, I’m here to help you heal at a soul-deep level. To release soul wounds that keep you from embracing your divine feminine power. I guide you through ancient and powerful healing modalities such as:
Using these shamanic and Buddhist approaches, you’ll release soul wounds that no longer serve you and keep you in your masculine power.
Because you’re unaware of deeply rooted trauma (hey, none of us are – it’s totally okay), working with an experienced and empathetic spiritual counselor is crucial.
I’ll be there every step of the way. I’ll guide you deeper into your intuitive knowing and bring about more powerful transformations and healings. This will allow your divine feminine power to come quickly back into balance.
You have two very different but equally important powers within you – the masculine and divine feminine.
While our culture values the qualities and traits of the masculine, tapping into your divine feminine power (while already in your masculine) will stabilize you. So you can avoid burnout and stagnation.
This unconscious neglect of your feminine power could be the result of past trauma and soul wounds. But when you work with a spiritual counselor who offers healing approaches for your divine feminine power, you’ll learn to effortlessly step into this energy and live a more balanced life.
