Hi All! Today I'm going to touch base on a subject that I've been working with based on my spiritual practice, and just some tenants I've been implementing into my life for balance and harmony. With that said, today we are going to be discussing the subjects of the Divine Masculine (Yang) and the Divine Feminine, (Yin). Before we move on, I want to make it very clear that these qualities have nothing to do with gender, a female can absolutely be drawn to more masculine energy, and a man can be drawn to embodying more feminine energy.
As humans we embody both of these polarities, and typically (regardless of gender), we are drawn to one polarity over the other. So, if feeling out of balanced, or out of touch with your femininity or masculinity, understanding these concepts may be helpful. This may also be helpful in understanding the dynamics of your romantic relationships.
This has nothing to do with being girly and needing to wear pink nail polish all the time, but rather more so on the concepts of how we were built upon, and aligning ourselves to the energies that resonate within us. When we find the right percentage (if you will), of masculine and feminine energy that resonate within ourselves, we are able to understand ourselves more.
Personal thought: For me, I realized I was living too much in my masculine, and was not feeling in touch with my femininity and feeling a bit lost within myself, so when I looked into these concepts, I was able to understand how to tap into my feminine side a bit more without changing who I am at my core. Hope this resonates so far!
Understanding Divine Masculine & Feminine Energy
The divine masculine and feminine are two powerful energies that exist within us all. They represent the balance of our inner power, with the divine masculine representing strength, leadership, protection and direction while the divine feminine represents intuition, creativity, love and compassion. In many spiritual philosophies, these two energies are seen as opposite but complementary aspects of ourselves. When we are able to embrace both of these energies within us, we can find balance and peace.
We can also be open to receiving guidance from the divine wisdom that surrounds us. By learning how to work with both these energies in harmony, we can create a more meaningful life experience for ourselves and others. In essence, by finding equilibrium between the divine masculine and feminine, we can experience greater harmony in our lives. It is in this balance that we find true power, wholeness and connection with ourselves and the divine. As we strive to create a life of peace and tranquillity, the journey begins within by honoring both aspects of our inner being.
Divine Feminine Energy
The Divine Feminine is associated with the receptive energy of love and nurturance, intuitive understanding and self-care. It is a force that brings us peace, stillness, grace and compassion. By cultivating an awareness of this energy we can learn to become more open to receiving its guidance as well as our inner wisdom. This helps us tap into our creativity and intuition, allowing us to express ourselves with greater clarity and passion.
The Divine Feminine is also a source of strength and empowerment as it teaches us patience and resilience. It invites us to deepen our connection with ourselves and the world around us, allowing us to become more conscious creators of our own lives. By honouring and respecting this energy we can learn to create balance in all aspects of life, be it within ourselves, with others, in our relationships, and with the environment. When we embody the Divine Feminine we become more connected to our authentic selves and can find a sense of peace and harmony within us.
The Divine Feminine is a reminder that each of us holds immense power over our own lives. It encourages us to live with intention, to become aware of our thoughts and feelings and to make conscious choices about how we want to be in the world. The Divine Feminine also teaches us how to approach life from a place of kindness and compassion, which can help us create deeper connections with others and foster more meaningful relationships.
Divine masculine energy is equally important and can be just as powerful. It helps us to bring our ideas into reality, empowering us to pursue our dreams and take action in order to make them happen. This energy also allows us to stand in our truth and speak from a place of confidence and courage.
The Divine Masculine teaches us how to honor ourselves and our boundaries by taking responsibility for our actions and decisions. It provides us with the courage to take risks, be assertive, and stay true to ourselves even in difficult situations. With this energy, we can make wise choices about how we want to be in the world. We learn to be direct and honest in our communication, which can create deeper connections with others.
The Divine Masculine also encourages us to explore and embrace our inner strength and power. In doing so, we gain the confidence to trust ourselves, express our needs, and make decisions that honor who we are.
On a Witchy Mindset:
This may go without saying, but if wanting to connect with a deity and don't know how to go about it and are feeling out of touch with your divine masculine or divine feminine energy, you may want to look into the lore of which deities are aligned with what energy. For example, sun gods are going to be very masculine, and moon goddesses are going to be more feminine. Want to learn more about deities? Click here.
Final thoughts: Every human should embody both of these characteristic. Women are intelligent, and should own their boundaries! This is strictly speaking in terms of the energetic frequencies that reside within us and what feels right on an individual basis.
