Having balanced Yin and Yang means that you are both giving and receiving, you are intuitive and persistent. you know when to stop and give up while being goal focused, do what is right for the better good of all while at the same time support and cherish your own well being.
Naming The Energies
The masculine energies or YANG are stronger, more direct and aggressive. They are oriented towards controlling and influencing others, making an impact on the surroundings. The masculine energy gives the sense of being in charge of your own life and confronting all obstacles directly and fervently. It is the strength to penetrate, achieve and accomplish tasks and goals. It is the state of doing.
YIN or the Feminine energies have attributes of another quality. Feminine energy is when you are guided by your intuition, putting others before yourself, being chaotic, emotional, love and heart driven. You are guided by your intuition which tells you which way to go and what is good or bad for you, what is right or wrong.
Become aware that we currently live in a predominately masculine based culture. It basically means that we enjoy many scientific achievements which benefit our lives in the material sense. The technical and technological changes have truly been incredible and have dramatically improved our lives. This is all a result of our state of doing, being action oriented, strategically focused, planning things out and executing these plans.
However, this masculine system in today’s world is disconnected from the feminine system. There is basically a drive towards accomplishment for accomplishment´s sake. In this male-oriented world, where penetration, being goal driven and purpose oriented, it is almost impossible to create lives that are fulfilled and have the deeper meaning. There is a lack of care about others and the surroundings when solely focused on making a profit, being goal driven and in a competitive state of mind.
Living in these masculine energies leaves little space for the feminine energies to emerge. The feminine energy can be described by the word magnetic. You draw things into your life with the power of your thoughts and words.
Meaning of the Feminine
Sourcing power from the feminine energies basically means that we give value to our spiritual connection. We give value to being creative and co-creative with the energies of the universe. We generate our own creative self-expression and give our higher creative contribution to the world.
When the feminine energies have dominance in your life, you find that you are much more drawn towards your internal world. You pay much more attention to your emotions (your energy in motion). We are talking about core emotions such as fear, anger, sadness, guilt, shame. You are much more consciously aware as to what you are internally feeling.
It is important to note that both men and women are made up of these two energies and the key to a better life and a beautiful world is to have them in balance in every human being.
Balanced energy in a person means that you take care of others as much as you take care of yourself. It also means that while being good and gentle you are also strong and full of willpower to accomplish what is good for you and others.
