Are You Honouring the Divine Feminine in a Masculine Way?

Our world is founded on patriarchy and masculinity.

It all started with the fall of polytheistic religions (the belief in many gods and goddesses) and the rise of monotheism (the belief in a single masculine god), a response to society shifting away from family- and agricultural-focused life and moving towards commerce and warfare.

As a result of this transition, feminine virtues such as self-love, intuition, and nurturing became redundant, and masculine virtues like logical thinking, hard work and struggle became more popular.

To survive, women were forced to develop their masculine sides, and men were encouraged to suppress their femininity and live up to stereotypical masculine standards.

Fortunately, we’re now at the point in time when the scales are tipping once again. Lightworkers all over the world are waking up and choosing to live a more balanced life.

The Divine Feminine is awakening within people, and matriarchy’s rising once again.

Yet, masculinity is so embedded in our nature that’s dictating the way the feminine rises. 

When this is done consciously the Divine Feminine rises steadily to regain a balanced position in society. When this is done unconsciously, masculinity can trick us into thinking we’re honouring the Divine Feminine when we’re really hindering it.

  • Examples of the ways masculinity gives rise to the Divine feminine include timing your meditations, structuring your yoga postures, and scheduling your spiritual practice.
  • Examples of the ways masculinity hinders the rise of the Divine Feminine involve forcing, struggling, and overworking yourself while doing any of the above.

As a rule of thumb, when your spiritual practice feels easy and pleasurable you’re nurturing the Divine Feminine and when it feels forced and unpleasant you’re hindering it.  

Have you been using masculinity to promote or hinder the rise of the Divine Feminine? Let me know in the comments below.

The Truth About Mermaids & How to Communicate With Them

Spiritual people love talking about magical beings. We take angels and faeries for granted, but we talk about mermaids in a lighter, more playful way. The truth is, we like the idea of mermaids being real but there isn’t much out there to support their existence. I’m here to tell you that both mermaids are 100%… Continue Reading

How Moonlight Can Help You Manifest Your Desires

How do you experience the full moon? If you’re like most people the moon makes you feel overwhelmed with emotion.

During the summer of 2013 I dove deep into my study of faeries – the spirits and… Continue Reading

How to Find Balance Between Masculine & Feminine Energy

We live in a culture that glorifies masculine energy and vilifies feminine energy. We’re all about taking action and moving forward, and we rarely give ourselves enough time to relax and recalibrate. In my recent trip to Avalon (present day Glastonbury, England) where the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energies coexist in perfect divine harmony,… Continue Reading

When Ego & Divine Self Work Together, Magic Happens!

You can never get rid of your ego. However many times you read A Course in Miracles and however many hours you spend meditating, your ego will always be part of you. Why?
