Nowadays, it seems that everywhere we look we are being called upon to be more conscious in our busy, everyday lives. Today more than ever the rise of the divine feminine power seems to be awakening, nudging us to reconnect with an ancient force. But, what does it actually mean?
If we take a look at the modern world, it is obvious that there is a patriarchal system at play. We have been trained since we could walk and talk that “time is money” and that we must be assertive, active members of society in order to be successful. This masculine energy, often categorised by logic and reason, is focused on doing and achieving results. For decades it has been the driving force behind nearly everything in our daily lives. Yet, while it has an extremely valuable place in our world, too much of it creates an imbalance. The result? Burnout, stress, anxiety, and feeling disconnected from your soul’s purpose… and the list goes on.
What is divine feminine power and why do we need it?
While definitions may vary, divine feminine power essentially means a sacred or divine feminine energy that is deeply linked to intuition, interconnectedness, creation and nurturing. Hence the references to Mother Nature and Gaia. Everyone can access this energy. It lies deep within all of us. Yet, throughout history people who readily exhibited their feminine power were called witches and punished with death. While we have moved on from the witch trials, another kind of witch hunt exists. Anyone who is not willing to sacrifice their feminine energy and fully embrace the masculine is exiled from society and resigned to being too soft and unsuccessful. Until now. There appears to be a return of the feminine as men and women crave to reconnect with their intuition and tap into the ancient wisdom that it provides.
What are the divine feminine awakening symptoms?
The imbalance between the masculine and feminine has been a battle that humans have fought for centuries. Ancient Chinese philosophy talks of Yin and Yang and teaches us that two opposing forces may in fact be complementary. Nature has shown us that this is the case by giving us male and female, old and young and dark and light. Everything needs to be balanced for life to function correctly. The same applies to our bodies. An abundance of masculine energy results in feeling tired, stressed, overworked and unloved. On the other hand, too much feminine energy manifests itself in feeling unfocused, scattered, unstable and unsupported. Society has put masculine energy on a pedestal and for some, it is starting to become toxic. The result? The awakening of our divine feminine power.
THIS CAN MANIFEST ITSELF IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
1. Craving a space where one can feel seen, heard, held and supported on their life’s journey.
2. A deeper connection to our intuition.
3. An increased compassion and kindness towards other living beings
4. A hunger for ancient wisdom.
