As I play and share this pole of experience I call femininity, there are things that we really struggle to allow. We live in a competitive masculine world. Not that masculinity and femininity are only gender specific, they are two opposing poles. "Allow" being a key word of this nourishing pole of our nature. There is a great acceptance of others and situations in a very flowing manner when the yin or feminine pole operates. It is not a stuck or rigid disposition. It flows through, past, by, along in great flexibility and adaptability. It is also very receptive. Open to receive intuition, support, collaboration and guidance.
Allowing our emotions to be what they are and noticing. Flowing with them like a wave. See them as guidance of direction. Don't stuff them, ignore them or suppress them. Feel, observe, express and let go past. We are challenged with this by the training we receive. We have little understanding of our emotional nature, how to use it's guidance and open to its fuel. Most don't even know what their emotions are. Kind of crazy since it is a big part of our constitution. Femininity is very tapped into and clear on the emotional nature. Using this feeling nature in empathy and intuition. It is a powerful sensing that woman naturally have yet it is untapped. It also moves in great power and why passion is one of the key powers of femininity.
Allowing support and receiving is part of femininity. Working with others. Using the power of groups. Collaborate and connect in openness. Allow others to give to you. We seem to have this idea that we are weak if we receive. I get it from a man's view but as woman, we have always been in groups historically and in strong community in all we did. To receive support while child raising, in the kitchen, with our chores or duties was natural and communal. Being open to this connection of working together and knowing when many are involved there is more giggles and it goes easier. Woman know that innately. When we have parties, other support us with a dish. When one needs help, we easily collect things from our friends and great support is generated without much work. This is the magic of woman and the power of being open to receive guidance and work together.
Allowing others to be who and what they are. One of the greatest gifts nourishing femininity offers is this unconditional love to others. We overlook their behaviors, their weakness, their learning and see the good naturally. We are the child bearers which includes great compassion, empathy and natural connection to all of life.
Allow yourself to recieve. We all want to receive yet when things come to us, we don't accept them or want it another way. The power of the feminine, the humility is that she is open to receive divine guidance, be a vessel, flow and flex according to what is necessary. Great students, listeners, learners because we are receptive and open. Not as rigid in our position, open to change and expand. That flow and expansion of being adaptable.
Allowing to know things without the mind. Woman have a powerful intuition that goes beyond logic of the mind. it connects the mind and heart in the spiritual gift of knowing. Listen to it. Use this sense as the guidance and support it is. We all have used it and found good support. We have not used it and later, knew we had an indication of better direction that we didn't listen too. " I just had this feeling" kind of thing. Only through experiment do we use this with great power. This is a gift of just being a woman. We always create solutions as if out of no where. Look at all the things we have done during covid with our adaptability guided by inner knowing!!!!
Allowing ourselves to feel good about all we do. Nourishing ourselves with compliments, what good we do and create by reveling in it. This don't be full of yourself is not of woman. Woman need to savor the great things they do. Most are not boastful or competitive in their essential nature. We can be but we are the ones who want all to win. This is our powerful community nature that supports the whole world. Without a moments notice, we can band together as if by magic to save situations and help others. This is very powerful! We never created this network with any intention but to connect to others yet it exists. Call one woman and we can get food or clothes or support in massive effect without any plan. It is easy and natural. We need to revel in this power of self and our sisterhood that is the community foundation.
Allowing ourselves to nourish ourselves first. This is probably one of the most challenging beliefs for woman to embrace. The martyr archetype has taken over our being and it is not the nature of things. We are the most magnificent nourishers innately. We must turn this toward ourselves. No one can give us what we need until we know what that is and speak it. Often that is all it takes. We can give ourselves what we need often too, for we know. How can we support all in this time if we are wiped out? We can't. Setting ourselves right supports all our environments for we run the energy of the group and spaces! Really challenge yourself to care for you first in small ways that can grow. This is a powerful tool of how to nourish with overflow. We must feel whole, complete and filled to give. If we don't, it is time for self care no matter what your mind says. This is not a popularity contest as to who can do the most for others. The one who can, is the one whose needs are met and they have extra. It is Law!
I hope this helped you untangle some of your old beliefs to support you in a time where woman are needed in strength. Lets face it, we are the ones making all the changes, adjustments and adaptations at this time of covid. Making it work for our jobs, families and loved ones. So sink into the nourishing, allowing pole of your being. This will shift yourself and all around you. Great love Ladies! It is time to feel really good, be proud and continue to manage in full grace and ease!
