To open myself up here and to freely express myself still scares me just a little. Oddly over the years of my adulthood I became much more reserved and started to keep my most inner thoughts to myself or just to those closest to me.
The last few years I’ve began to overcome my own flaw. It’s not that I worry what others think of me, it’s the simple fact of that I’m a perfectionist. I don’t want to share unless I feel it’s completely ready and of my best work. I’ve never been a person to just half do something. If it has my name on it, I want it to be of my best work.
Perhaps in my subconscious I do care what others think about me, that I’m not lazy, a cheat, a liar, that I always speak the truth. But that’s really all I can do. To let go of my perfectionism and to simply speak my truth.
My whole life I searched for my faith outside of me, in church, bible classes, in books. It wasn’t until a few years ago I finally found it.
It was all along within myself.
The more I practiced self-care, the more I felt grounded and embracing my feminine energy. The way I approached everything started to change. Whether it was how I prayed, who I prayed to, how I interacted and treated others, or how I handled situations. Somehow with this feminine energy that I was welcoming, it felt so familiar. And I felt like I was coming home, to myself.
This feminine energy may be known to you as divine feminine, sacred feminine, shakti, or yin as in yin & yang. We are all created with both feminine & masculine energies.
You need both energies to compliment one another, to work in harmony, like yin and yang. The divine masculine is active and directional, or the ‘doing’. While feminine energy is receptive and organic, or the ‘being’.
As the world today is of masculine energy – action, logic, competition, controlling, strategizing; we are more drawn to our divine masculine. Therefore we need to nurture our divine feminine; our feminine energy that is our spiritual and emotional connection, and responsible for our nurture, intuition, and empathy.
I am so excited to share with you my divine feminine and how I practice self-care & empowerment, as I will post weekly on the divine feminine!
Having my baby girl has really blossomed my divine feminine, and I look forward to my journey with my daughter. This sacred feminine energy has helped me to love myself, those around me, and I feel I’m on my way to meeting my higher self. The more in tune I am with my divine feminine, the more I embrace myself and the world around me.
What part can I take to help heal the world?
Rise. Rise with me goddesses. Awaken your divine feminine; love yourself unconditionally, and the love you give to others will flow effortlessly.
The Dalai Lama once said,
The world will be saved by the western woman.
Don’t you feel your calling? I do.
