I’ve noticed a pattern in my life: the more I focus on my business, the more time I spend in my masculine energy.
To me, the masculine is strong, powerful & dynamic and rides on the energy of make it happen / get it done. There’s an element of force.
The feminine energy can be strong, powerful & dynamic, but in a different way. To me it’s softer, gentler and rides on the energy of allowing things to unfold. There’s an element of space and surrender.
One is not better than the other. We need both and have both within us.
But, I do find that as a female, when I spend the majority of my time in ‘getting things done’ (masculine energy), I feel depleted and somewhat out of touch with my connection to Spirit. Maybe a better way to say that is I don’t find myself as willing to surrender and trust.
Last week after launching the free preview call for bodyheart program, I spent two days over the weekend in bed, recovering. As I laid there, I reconnected with my center and Source. And I started thinking, “There has got to be a better way.”
[Side note: This is the same path I took with my relationship with my body in 2008. After 20+ years of participating in an abusive relationship with her, I finally decided to seek out something different than the magic pill approach I was used to. I started thinking, “There has got to be a better way.” Turned out that was the best experiment I could’ve asked for, so I’m hopeful the same will happen this time around.]
What came to mind as I let my thoughts marinate was the concept of receiving. By definition to receive is:
1. to take into one’s possession (something offered or delivered): to receive gifts.
2. to have (something) bestowed, conferred, etc.: to receive an honorary degree.
3. to have delivered or brought to one: to receive a letter.
4. to get or be informed of: to receive instructions; to receive news.
Receptivity is a highly feminine quality and one I’ve been feeling disconnected from.
In a world that values productivity so much and reinforces the idea of quantity over quality, it’s not easy to slow down and allow the path to show itself.
Receptivity requires openness. And openness requires vulnerability. Again, not always easy in our do-do-do, guarded world.
But, what if it could be easier? What if I (or you) welcomed assistance from the magical powers that be. What if creating space resulted in way for me (& you) to get MORE done?
So, I’ve decided to play with that this month. I’m a fan of experimentation. I love trying things out and seeing how they fit. And, I’m inviting you to join me.
October is my month of receiving. For 31 Days in a row I am focusing on opening my heart and allowing gifts to come into my life. I’m asking myself the question: How easy can success be for me today? How easy can spreading the message of bodyheart be today? How easy can it be to take care of myself today?
You get it, right?
