This class explores feminine spirituality and forms a circle of sisterhood. Until we get to know and understand ourselves so deeply and completely, we can hardly expect others to understand us. By each of us doing this inner work that teaches us how to express ourselves more clearly, articulately and intelligently, we are contributing to the evolution of humanity.
Rising Feminine Energy
The feminine energy is rising. As people listen to their intuition, trust their inner call to speak truth and unsuppress, the feminine is demonstrating her power. The feminine is a quality of energy that lives in both men and women.
In the energetic anatomy, feminine power relates to the 2nd Chakra, which is the orange power center in the pelvic bowl corresponding to sexuality, sensitivity, vulnerability, creativity, and the ability to be ok with having feelings. Qualities of feminine energy also include: receiving, listening, allowing, trusting, soft, intuitive, sensitive, knowing, wild, creative, co-creative, yielding, gentile, introverted, forgiving, soulful, spiritual, connected, connectable, conscious, wise, passionate, honest, integrity, emotionally communicative, expressive, truthful, sensual, fluid, trusting, sexual, innocent, playful, loving, beautiful, pure, and vulnerable.
This is a long list, and yet, some of these qualities have been considered weak in both men and women. The doorway into strengthening the feminine energy is through feeling emotions. The shame of having feelings suppresses all aspects of feminine energy.
Emotional maturity and emotional intelligence strengthen when there is permission to feel feelings. Contrary to being qualities of weakness, feeling emotions is an aspect of the feminine power in the body. In order to have emotional maturity, it requires being relatable, vulnerable, real and honest about feelings that are present. Being honest about how you feel, builds trust and true connections, which are aspects of feminine energy.
When there is shame for having feminine qualities such as emotions, it can result in dishonorable actions or acting out in ways that eventually result in embarrassment or shameful feelings. It can hurt to feel like a part of your being is not ok. And that’s not your fault; it is how society sees the feminine – as not ok.
Collectively, society has hidden and covered up feminine energy for fear that transparency means weakness. Fear has dominated the feminine as fear became a way to suppress the Truth. Yet today, feminine energy is rising in all of us. There are courageous voices coming out and speaking up about assault, harassment, shame, guilt, and suppression of the feminine.
Women are on the rise, speaking truth, shedding the cloaks of shame, and communicating with integrity and bringing the shadow to light. Men are also waking up to their own emotions and how they have suppressed and objectified women.
The feminine energy has held a lot of wounds through this century, this generation, the lineage, and personal lives, for not being honored. The wounds that are carried are often masked by shame. Shame is one of the shadow feelings that is held in the 2nd Chakra area of the body. It’s where people can hold the deep pain of “who I am is bad and wrong.” Shame has people act out in ways that re-create the feeling of shame, and this has been a wound within the feminine for a long time.
