Having been in woman's groups and self empowerment most of my life, I want to share a key aspect for us as woman. Why I coach, teach, share, write, have videos and am continually supporting woman is because I learned about our ways of being as different than men. This delighted me as it often seemed a challenge to go at the world the way men do. Others woman can adapt more easily than I. Our world is structured on processes and paths designed for and best suited for them. A man's world we call it.
Part of the joy that made it so easy for me to write my book was that I learned from woman and men teachers the difference between woman and men as I never heard before. We are all clear on the obvious natures, but the energetics, the difference between the two poles of yin and yang within and without operate made all the difference. It was so delightful for me to really embrace the gifts of womanhood, different than men. No one ever really shared that in a way I could fully understand it as an energy thing. It was such an "aha' for me as all my study, all my training was with woman as we adapted to the men's world using their techniques. We learned the ways they do things and of course to succeed in their world we needed to draw and develop our yang way more strongly. It makes sense. However, as we walk into 2000 years of developing the yin or divine feminine in the world, there is a celebration to bring in how woman do things. This will balance the production, manly way.
There are many ways to empower woman and all of them will be for who they are in their level of learning. I learned in a way that exalts being a woman. This was different for me. I could give up the days of no pain, no gain, production, efficiency and system thinking as my primary way. Production is important but there are many ways to do that. Woman, come from the heart not the head. We have a natural connect to the wholeness of life that men just don't have. We often sacrifice that for production and even our training of our emotional nature has gotten a bad name. This is our power. Our connection to the larger realm of life through the heart then letting that integrate into production is a very different path than going at production first and foremost.
First I was taught the difference of my body and how a woman is to ride in oxytocin or relaxed parasympathetic nervous system most of the time. I had been living in adrenal production full time so this was so new to me. Our health ails of the wombs, hearts, breasts and thyroid issues which most woman have, come from this sympathetic stress. This alone is transforming as we just were never taught how our body works with tasks and energy. Not to mention, our emotional intuitive nature did not get cultivated as we cultivated the yang production. In fact, we have disconnected from it!
There is no one who doesn't get that if you give a man and woman the same task, they will not proceed and do it the same way. We are approaching it from different viewpoints, one as a competitor, another as a bonder. These are very different perspectives. The task will be completed but the process very different. It has taken me many years to allow myself in this other way. I say allow as it is natural for woman. It is us, to develop this emotional, intuitional way that uses mind but is not just mind. When you realize this center point, and come from, it shifts your entire world.
The biggest key that was stressed to me was that if it was not easy and fun, it was not good for my health period. If we get all mental, caught in the structured mind and in that cranky energy, we were not creating health in ourselves. This was such a gift to me for this is woman's way. We want to have a light, playful, dance like way to our projects that are not as serious as men. We are serious but not as much as men. Our true nature is to bring in the soft nourishing energy as we do production. Many woman working together to run a project is like watching a dance of collaboration so beautiful compared to a man run project. We have an innate skill to do in greater ease and magic. There are not many examples of woman doing it this way in the world so it is a shift we will be doing forward.
It seems practical to me that before woman find their purpose, their success that fulfills that emotional nature, the path the they can fully embody, they must learn of the glory they naturally are that fuels all these. We must embody or be in our body, in a different energy than production intensity all the time . My website has Glide, Giggle and Glow as the tenets I share with woman. It is that energetic, those words are the flavor we flow. Sacred Femininity begins with knowing your feminine nature and coming from that perspective and energetic. It is you centered in YOUR body. This is new to us. We are being called to express. More grounded which means connecting the body to the spirit, heaven and earth conduit.
Once you do, the way you approach all of life, your daily tasks of cooking, your way you enter the business world, the way you make lists or motivate yourself in ease in grace is just different. Very different. Like doing a piece of art versus putting together a machine mechanically. If we go at it from the mental level we won't embody as the mind, is a tool of awareness. We must marry that with the body and it's tools of awareness. The mental body must be grounded or be connected to the earth and the heavens (ideas) simultaneously. To embody, we need to know the fluidity of the emotional level and embrace and work with it. It is our gift and nature. If we don't begin there, all of our accomplishments and goals will feel hollow.
As a practical girl wanting to really have fun, enjoy life through all its foibles and make a difference in the world, I was glad to find this wisdom I share. Life is easier and more fun. I enjoy the moments more and know joy, collaboration, negotiation, communication, service, connecting solutions are just some of the ways that woman will naturally add into the world. It is what we bring to the world.
We have naturally a broader view that in ancient cultures was revered. It was our job to tell the men to stop the production. "We have enough food, homes, land, whatever." It is time to celebrate, communicate deeply, gather and commune on our production. We will step into this as our evolution unfolds. Woman naturally have a humanitarian heart as we carry the seed of life. This balances the production more sustainable, holistically. It is the call of the Aquarian Age we are just beginning.
Be aware ladies that oxytocin, relax, parasympathetic nervous system riding is your first step to really do and be your calling or vocation in the world. The goodness is "How fun is that?"As we relax we produce more? When we come from that place of femininity we are more fulfilled? It is not as hard? I say Yippee! Thank you Great Goodness! I can exhale and relax. All will be ok. I am expressing The Art of Being A Woman!
