Feminine energy is such a buzzword at the moment, but what does it actually mean?
You’ve probably heard phrases like the “Divine Feminine” or “Sacred Feminine Energy” or the “Feminine Woman” thrown around, but what do they actually mean? Is it about the way a woman looks, is it about the way she behaves, or is it about spirituality?
The definition can vary depending on who you ask, but to put it simply: feminine energy is the exact opposite of masculine energy. Feminine and masculine polarity is complementary, and they’re in harmony. “They go together like Yin & Yang,” as the saying goes.
Feminine and Masculine Polarity
It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, everyone has feminine and masculine energy in them.
Masculine energy is about being action-orientated. It’s driven, focused, leading, directing, decisive, aggressive, competitive, and gets the job done. A great way to describe this energy in women is when you’re in “work mode.” You’re crushing goals, and you’re a powerhouse!
Feminine and masculine energies are complementary, and they’re in harmony.
Feminine energy is all about feelings, intuition, creativity, softness, compassion, nurturing, warmth, vulnerability, being open, connected, and vibrant. The energy is more fluid, and you’re able to go with the flow.
It’s like that feeling you get when you are on vacation. It’s that awakened vitality, a sense of beauty and freedom. It’s the relaxed and expressive part of ourselves.
Our feminine energy can get depleted just like our physical energy.
Society can often deny a woman's femininity due to its increasing demands. For example, women who work in a competitive environment that requires them to be very focused and hardworking (masculine energy). Even running a household can do this to you — we’ve all heard of the stressed-out mom!
Feminine energy is all about feelings, creativity, softness, nurturing, warmth, and vulnerability.
Women who spend too much time in their masculine energy can often feel like they’re stuck in a rut, depleted, and not 100%. It does nothing for your love life either. For romance to thrive in a relationship, there needs to be sexual polarity. If you have too much masculine energy (e.g. you like to lead and take charge all the time) and your man is masculine man, you’re more likely to butt heads instead of inspiring sexual chemistry.
