Within each of us is the innate, natural balance of our feminine and masculine creative powers. Every person, regardless of their physical attribute of being male or female, man or woman, has these potent forces that are the very essence of our being. In the simplest example, we all have the gift of imagination (a feminine energy aspect) and willpower (a masculine energy aspect). Together they infuse through the feminine energy of feeling and the masculine energy of thought to manifest our reality. What we think and feel, we become. They are ultimately inseparable and necessary components for creation. However, when they are either willfully suppressed or allowed to dominate, they create an imbalance that distorts, and even destroys, the inherent sanctity and beauty of life.
Imagination is our way of formulating and exploring possibilities. It is the grander view that gathers, intuits, and incorporates a variety of facets that are interrelated and interconnected. These are inclusive considerations that, at their core, are nurturing, subjective, heart-felt, and holistic. We often witness these characteristics in women since they tend to embody these energies to a greater degree and are the ones that conceive, incubate and develop the very physical being we become.
Willpower allows us to bring our imagination to life. By thinking, focusing, using our instincts, and taking necessary action, we materialize matter and build our outer reality. Men have actively portrayed these qualities for a very long time. The masculine energy is skillful in many important ways that support and uphold the feminine energies. Yet, by design, the feminine and masculine energies are meant to combine seamlessly within us, as being and doing, to allow us to experience the very best of life on this exquisite planet.
For countless ages and innumerable reasons, we have allowed an increasingly imbalanced expression of our masculine energies to dominate, particularly through men. This exclusive imbalance, suppression and ignorance of our central feminine energetic qualities, has been used to subjugate women to a lesser role and steadily wreaked havoc throughout societies and our earth. This imbalance has allowed a singular intellectual pursuit and gratification of materialism without the finer inclusive senses of grace, nurture, benevolence, integrity and dignity to balance our creation. When truly balanced, the resulting wisdom of love naturally blends our creative energies for the greatest good and benefit for all.
We are finally becoming aware of this imbalance, and in particular, women of the world are awakening to their personal power and balanced ability to create. They are embracing their essential willpower, regaining their voice, and standing in unity to bring about the balance necessary now. The infusion that this realization provides is the rapid restoration of the vital feminine energies of imagination and imperative vision, where an empowered humanity nurtures life itself in all its various expressions. Women are reigniting the crucial need for compassion, kindness and unconditional love to be included in creation. As they join heart-to-heart, they are imagining and empowering a world for future generations that thrive through gentleness and wisdom. Interestingly, most indigenous cultures had these central, balanced energies in their societies. Women shared in the formation and leadership of their social structures and were respected for their wisdom and equally dynamic contribution.
It is important to understand that this balance must also come from the men of the world as they relearn and embrace their fundamental balance and reincorporate the powerful feminine aspects they have purposely repressed within themselves. The patriarchal imbalance that has been created by the masculine energy bias has usurped governments, religions and social structures around the globe and resulted in an unstable and unsustainable reality. All around us we clearly see now that this imbalance is detrimental in the sustaining and flourishing of life.
We are all so much grander than we have allowed ourselves to be and there is so much potential before us as we once again acknowledge our foremost creative capacity. Women of the world, reclaim your perfect blend of creative energies so that men may know firsthand that there is deep wisdom in love and a magnificent power beyond measure in graceful balance.
Love and hugs,
