In my part of the world, May is the month Mother Earth begins to sprout new life and we celebrate Mother’s Day.
What are you birthing this month? Creating life is one expression of the feminine.
What are other powerful characteristics, traits, and qualities of feminine energy?
During April I spent time with various people engaged in bold, visible, and brilliant displays of feminine energy.
I accompanied a dear friend on a book launch tour in northern California. A family member began a new leadership position in a global consulting firm supporting optimal change and transformation for companies. I am blessed to work with numerous clients stepping into their power and changing culture, families, and communities. WOW! SO INSPIRING! And each of these men and women are embodying and honoring their feminine power. The light in them activates the light in others.
Yes, masculine qualities such as competitive, focus, doing and logic are important in our experience of being human. From my perspective, society was built upon patriarchal laws, which encouraged the masculine qualities and diminished the feminine ways of being, knowing and creating in the world. Everyone dances with both energies. This month I invite each of us, men and women, to feel the rising surge of feminine power.
The feminine perspective is not swept away or distracted by what you are AGAINST but focuses on contributing to what you are FOR.
It considers the whole person, mind-body-heart-sprit. It honors intuition, synchronicity, flow, and balance. The feminine aspect of yourself is not engaged in excessive doing and honors all ways of knowing.
The feminine aspect present in each of us engages in service to co-create life sustaining, nourishing systems, beliefs, and paradigms.
This way of being and thinking knows that when one rises, we all rise. Self-care is essential to supporting each other. Now is the time to call forth the feminine way of being and doing in the world as we navigate to heal oppression, greed, entitlement, and power over.
What are these powerful feminine qualities? They include but are not limited to:
- Heart Centered
What are your feminine superpowers?
As Marianne Williamson poem Our Deepest Fear reminds us:
….And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others.
