Lately, a lot of us have been feeling a strong re-emergence of the Divine Feminine both within us and around us. So many qualities that have for so long been seen as weak (expressing our emotions, feeling compassion and empathy for others), less valuable (creative artists and traditional 'feminine' roles like teachers and nurses (not) being paid what they deserve) and disregarded (our intuition as a source of knowledge) are now coming to the surface from the spaces that they have been hiding in and pushed down into.
As this happens,
the Divine Masculine is by default becoming more balanced. The
patriarchal system we've been living within has been the Masculine on
steroids. As one side of the see-saw goes up, the other side must come
down. Yet it is a healthy down, a retreat toward a more balanced version
of the Masculine, one that plays a positive supportive role toward its
loved ones instead of suffocating and restricting them like an
We are not swapping Masculine authority for
Feminine, only the Feminine qualities are receiving a lot of focus now
because they are experiencing an uprising, while the Masculine is
gearing down, as we attempt to get this healthy balance happening.
Masculine on Steroids within us - and externally within our social
systems - for the most part doesn't like this gearing down at all, and
the Feminine is pretty pissed that she was repressed for so long, so you
might be feeling and seeing around you explosions of anger that come
out of nowhere.
A very beneficial exercise is to get in touch with your
inner Masculine and Feminine: what do they look like? How are they
feeling? What do they want to tell you?
They are changing form rapidly
these days, so this is an exercise you might like to do regularly or
whenever you feel particularly explosive to help yourself understand
where your inner energies are at.
This exercise will also help if you
are feeling numb or frozen - as we undergo our balance process we are
literally shifting our sense of who we thought we were and this identity
shift and the fear it brings up can result in a temporary
'energetic/emotional/action paralysis' type feeling.
