Many of us are feeling the call to connect with sisterhood and live more consciously. If you’re curious about how the Divine Feminine can help you to connect to your inner Goddess, then read on.
The Feminine Divine is a juicy, fluid and nurturing force to connect with and celebrate. Her energy is already inside you, waiting to be awakened to teach you how to tap into your innate wisdom, sensuality and power. Just like the force of nature, she may choose to help you grow in some of the most unexpected ways...
You might have heard the phrase Divine Feminine used and wondered what it actually means. There’s so much out there about all kinds of different ways to live more consciously, creatively and in alignment and sometimes all the different terms can get confusing.
The Divine Feminine refers to an aspect of the self that we all have within us. You can imagine masculine and feminine energy not literally as male and female but as different parts of the same consciousness, each representing a unique set of qualities within all humans.
This is a vast subject, so here are just a few things to consider about what this energy represents.
Honouring nature + her cycles
The Divine Feminine is associated with qualities such as intuition, creativity and receptivity.
The word “Divine” signifies that these qualities are worth honouring and the word “Feminine” associates them with aspects of nature such as the lunar phases and the menstrual cycle.
The Divine Feminine isn’t specifically linked to gender, all of us have masculine and feminine energies within us and can connect to each one more at different times depending on what’s going on in our lives.
The Divine Feminine celebrates cycles, moving with the natural rhythms of Mother Earth and in a constant state of birth > death > rebirth.
The Divine Feminine is finding ways to be comfortable in vulnerability, resilient in the face of life’s challenges and strongly connected to the inner voice.
There is a force within each one of us that knows how to connect to the natural flow, to move with the current instead of clinging onto the side of the riverbank in fear or swimming against the tide until we are exhausted. It is with this surrender that we can learn to open our hearts, to be receptive yet also assertive about who and what we let into our space.
Reconnect to your sensuality
In our fast-paced modern world, principles of the Divine Feminine have been lost and overshadowed by man-made constraints. Yet so many of us are yearning for her presence, compassion and loving kindness.
The Divine Feminine energy is about experiencing life through the senses. Through connecting to this we can experience pleasure through touch, movement and all the senses. Finding joy in free expression is a way to invite in the energy of feminine divinity. There is no logic or reason here, sensing and feeling takes priority over the thinking mind so that thoughts can drop away and we can land present in the body.
Balancing the Masculine + Feminine energies
The dominant systems ruling much of our world at the moment beat in time to a rigid drum of rules, expectations, control and violence. There is a lot we can learn collectively about our own inner power and wisdom by tapping into all that the Divine Feminine represents.
The more we can rebalance these energies and uphold the Divine Feminine with respect and reverence, the more we can all begin to heal from the wounds of a system that isn't truly serving anyone.
