As a society, we are all reinventing the definition of feminine energy. Many have felt overwhelmed by the imbalances of forces. However, we must understand that there too is a redefining period for the masculine overtone. It is our job to make sure we remain balanced to the natural forces that we are made of.
Masculine energy is practical, structured and logical. Masculine energy is the push we need to get anything done. When it is out of balance it may become over-controlling, in a way that makes people feel oppressed… Sound familiar?
When the feminine energy is out of balance, it will make people feel out of control. These energies are very important in their own way. We must not reject that which we don’t understand.
Masculine energy is within all of us. It is the wind that blows on a hot day. It is that rock-hard stubbornness that forces us to never back down. It is compassion expressed “because *insert observational standpoint*”.
Masculine energy is known to be the warrior spirit itself. That is not true. Masculine or feminine, we will wage battle and win (in our own way). Masculine energy in a battle understands black from white, whereas feminine energy is the grey overtone everywhere understanding both sides, even if they choose only one.
For too long, masculine energy has been out of balance. People misuse this energy as force, leading to enslavement of the people and the self. They use “chivalry” as a way to define the more charismatic characteristics of masculine energy, that only led to limiting the power of the feminine energy.
When people think about witches, they more think of Glinda the good witch or the wicked witch, instead of Kal the wizard (from Halloweentown). In Halloweentown, they introduced the good male witch (or wizard) as pretty resisting. Even Dylan did not want to be a part of his natural metaphysical being. He wanted to be whole and “normal”. What is whole without the most basic parts of yourself acknowledged? Moral of the story, men are magical too! And magical women are waiting for YOU to come out like Kal!
Most say that the masculine energy has a sense of duty. While that may be true, I will also argue that everyone needs a purpose to fulfill. Masculine power is the resistance away from resistance. Continuity in patterns, routine, and order are a huge part of masculine energy as a way to ensure survival.
I am a woman that recognizes my feminine power as much as the society around us. Yet, I know I am balanced in my masculine energy as I enjoy order, balance, and making things happen by my own personal methods. I am continuously in check with myself to make sure the actions I take and words I say are within equilibrium to the intentions I set out and the forces I withhold.
The masculine power is as wielding as the feminine. Together, we become whole in ourselves.
In what ways are you conscious of your masculine and feminine power?
