Imbalance of masculine and feminine energy
Imbalance of masculine energy means over-relying on the mind. Although the mind is an amazing tool helping us to organize information, it can also deceive us.
Not every thought is real. In fact, most of the thoughts have little to do with reality.
Thus, if we’re too much in our masculine energy, there is a risk that we’ll worship the mind and forget about the heart and soul. This can make us harsh, judgemental, and dismissing any other evidence than logic.
On the other hand, the imbalance of feminine energy means that we delve too much into our feelings. It can lead to the point when we feel powerless and victims of situations. We may lock our hearts up to prevent it from getting hurt, and we feel paralyzed to open up.
Balancing Feminine and Masculine Energy
Balancing feminine and masculine energy is about knowing which one feels natural for you. If you have analyzed your primary energy is feminine, then first, you connect with your feminine side, and then you tap into your masculine.
On the other hand, if masculine energy is your “home,” you’ll first assess a situation from the perspective of masculine energy and then get in touch with your feelings and intuition.
The more balanced you are, the order in which these energies come gets blurred. You’ll be able to feel both of them at once. However, for simplicity and for learning how to balance masculine and feminine energy, it’s a good start to decode your core energy and then tap into the other one.
Practical examples of balancing your energies
Let’s say that your primary energy is feminine. The feminine energy is in touch with intuition, gut instincts, creativity, feelings, and the art of simply being. It doesn’t need to do anything unless it wants to. So the feminine energy appears to be more static than the masculine.
If you resonate more with your feminine essence, then make it your base. For instance, you’re thinking about finding a new job. Ideally, you first connect with your feelings and intuition. To do so, you may meditate, go for a long walk, or journal. You give yourself enough time and space to find out what kind of job you’d like to have.
First, tap into your intuition and feelings, and then use your masculine energy to create a plan.
Once you know what your heart wants, your masculine energy helps you to turn your desires and intuition into action. Thus you research potential jobs and think about how you need to update your cv and what kind of approach is best at the job interview.
When the feminine and masculine energy work in balance, the masculine doesn’t try to exploit the feminine. On the contrary, it spreads its protective wings over the feminine.
Your masculine essence helps you to look for the perfect jobs that reflect the needs and feelings of your feminine side. If the masculine energy would try to talk the feminine into something that “makes more sense,” then the feminine could withdraw. This could result in shutting down your intuition and not acting on gut feelings.
Now, let’s have a look at the other scenario when your primary energy is masculine. If we stay with the same example, you will look for a new job in a similar way, but you’d start from the other end.
If the masculine energy is the leading energy for you, then you first think what kind of career move makes sense. You analyze the job market and research the ideal companies until you pick a handful of job positions.
After you map out everything, you tap into your feminine energy and ask yourself how you feel about those positions. You also connect with your intuition to see which company is the best for your career growth.
If you’d use only your masculine energy, you could make the best logical move, but there could be things that you didn’t foresee. However, if you also listen to your intuition, it informs you what your decision will bring.
The key to balancing feminine and masculine energy is to give space to both. Don’t raise one above the other, but rather see how they can work in harmony and make each other stronger. When you listen to both energies, they’ll harmonize and get stronger.
