“Healthy femininity trusts the mystical forces of Life is enough to bring about all goals. It operates from experiencing the present moment and responds with instinctive knowingness and caring for all. It is inclusive in a non invasive way and waits on the intelligence of love to move it. It is receptive, allowing all that is needed to be given it to bring about new forms in life.”
A FEMININE VOICE IS CALLING
A well feminine voice is calling us all – in our own life, and on the planet! Over the last two thousand years, or more, the masculine energy in its corrupted form has governed humanity – hence the state of the planet. Harmonious living with nature is virtually non-existence, and rule of force, wars, suppression of women, abuse, violence and dictatorship have ruled. Corrupt male energies have ruled the earth with a stranglehold on politics, business and schooling, affecting all aspects of society.
Worse still, many women of today, especially in business, have subliminally taken on board masculine attributes and lost themselves in the process. Business research shows masculine qualities are behaviours attributed to success – even women think that! Things are changing thankfully, and men and women are awakening, and returning, to their feminine force (yes men have a feminine force). In order for this to happen in a big way, (which is what the world needs) polarised masculinity (present in both men and women) needs to move back into balance with the feminine, and through this, become function as planned.
Both these energies are present in all of us, however as a general rule, men’s primary energy is masculine, and women’s is feminine. This truth is expressed in the yin-yang symbol, where both have a little dot of the opposite colour
When the masculine and feminine are not in balanced expression and cooperation with each other, natural checks and balances are not active. Both aspects then pull apart and polarise, falling out of their natural modes of operating and becoming corrupt in their essence and action.

ROLE AND FUNCTION OF HEALTHY FEMININITY
Equally as strong but in a still way, healthy femininity knows that all is very well in the world, and that trusting the mystical forces of life is enough to bring about all goals. It operates from experiencing the present moment and responds with instinctive knowingness and caring for all. It is inclusive in a non invasive way and waits on the intelligence of love to move it as it refers to the inner world. It is receptive, allowing all that is needed to be given it to bring about new forms in life. Allowing, feeling and emergence are its key notes.
HOW TO GET THESE THE MASCULINE AND FEMININE WORKING IN HEALTHY WAYS WITHIN YOURSELF
1. Monitor your thinking and move away from conditioned idea that you need to take action in order to heal. That is a stuck masculine approach.
2. Use the healing power of feminine energy. By simply becoming aware of what mode is active within you moment by moment. That is enough to activate a natural success system that lives within you – and knows how to bring you to balance – if you will just allow it. This silent inner leader will help you make intuitive steps to bring your masculine and feminine energies into balance. Your only role is to know the characteristics of each and acknowledge which is operating when.
3. It’s important to allow yourself to move fluidly between the masculine and feminine energies as guided by the circumstances. For example if you standing at the hospital admissions with a very sick child and getting to see a doctor is taking too long, that’s the time for masculine driving energy to become active and push things to happen. If however you partner has just had bad news, that’s the time for feminine deep quiet listening and loving support and caring to take over. In this way healthy masculine and feminine energies ask us to be fluid enough to dance between the two as the situation dictates. The more you work in this way, the more automatic and empowered it will become.
