You Can Only Abuse the Feminine for So Long…

You Can Only Abuse the Feminine for So Long…

You can only abuse the feminine for so long.

She is wise, she is forgiving, she is open-hearted, she is concerned for the greater good, she can see the larger vision, she knows what may happen (her intuition is strong), she is a great leader, she is compassionate, she is allowing, she is strong.

But she cannot be abused and taken for granted forever.

Her compassionate energy has an expiration date.

And she will explode.

Abuse the earth too long, she will erupt.

Abuse the wisdom keepers for too long, they will cease to provide their wisdom.

Abuse the feminine aspects of a partner for too long, they will withdraw.

The world needs the feminine.

Without it, we don’t exist.

None of us.

The masculine energy on this earth (most specifically in Western cultures) is extremely out of balance and must come back into alignment.

Everyone and everything that has been belittled, pushed aside, or seen as not as important has the key to this balance.

Nature, contemplation, personal growth, meditation, indigenous, non-binary (two-spirits), women, creativity, philosophers, artists, and anyone who truly understands how to have a healthy relationship with themselves, others, and the world around them.

The masculine and feminine energies exist in every one of us, no matter our gender, as well as everything in our world.

The masculine energy (“doing,” business, industry, academia, etc.) is not more important to our existence on this planet, and never has been.

Human ego born from the idea that the feminine can be controlled (industry, inventions, emotions, relationships, pesticides, systems based on submission and control) has allowed the masculine energies to run wild. The belief being that “survival” depends on who can control the most resources, people, emotions, etc. The truth is we are interdependent. Control and domination do not equal safety and survival. Imbalance always rights itself and the feminine is rising.

And her patience has an expiration date.

It’s Time to Honor the Feminine- On the Inside and Outside

It’s Time to Honor the Feminine- On the Inside and Outside

It is long past time to honor the keepers of the feminine for all they have given us. Mother Earth needs our love and gratitude. Women need our love and honor, indigenous groups deserve our gratitude and respect.

The Western world has gotten caught in a pattern of solely acknowledging and recognizing the worth in what we can see and measure, the things that someone or something are “doing.”

It is far past time to acknowledge the ways in which so many living things have been “being,” and all of the emotional and spiritual resources they have provided us in addition to the physical.

It is time to start thinking beyond just our five senses and remember that the whole of the human experience on earth includes much more than that. The quality of: relationships, beauty, art, culture, love, empathy, care, holding space, positive energy, and integrity we embody and experience from others are core factors in determining the level of satisfaction we experience in our life on earth.

Why are we allowing them to be forgotten, suppressed, and shoved away, when they are such a huge piece of the human experience? No matter what we’ve been taught by an out of balance system that has encouraged “doing” at the expense of “being,” we CAN change the narrative.

We can bring things back to balance right now by committing to honor and respect the feminine in ourselves (whether we’re male, female, or other), as well as in all those who carry the torch for the forgotten side of all that exists.

It is past time to nurture, respect, and show love and gratitude to everything and everyone that enriches our lives through their “being,” as well to honor and recognize how much precious energy they are using.

Honor the earth keepers, space holders, highest good holders, the feminine side of each and every one of us, and the earth we walk upon—for they are not “less than” as our culture has continually made them out to be—but our salvation.
