Have you ever heard of feminine and masculine energy? You might be thinking “duh, all men have masculine energy and all women have feminine energy - what more is there to say?”. Well, that’s actually not the case at all!
Both genders have both energies inside of them - one can be more predominant than the other, but somewhere deep down inside of us we have both energies and it is super important to identify them. Imagine these energies as two complementary forces, not restricted by gender but instead representing qualities that all individuals can embrace.
And by knowing what energy is driving you and your partner, so many situations in your relationship will start to make sense. It’ll explain the way we and our partner think, act, communicate and even handle conflicts.
In a world that is constantly evolving, it is natural to be drawn to concepts that spark our curiosity and draw us towards greater self-awareness. The dance of masculine and feminine energy is such a captivating concept and once you start to look into it, you will see how it can help you in your daily relationships.
Before we get more into the topic though, we want to introduce you to Megan (@megandlamert) and James (@jamesmattingly), relationship and intimacy experts. They have been part of our “Love Program” as guest instructors, and gave us a session on how to better understand your partner, their energies and how you can use that to keep the spark alive, even after many years.
The Dance of Masculine and Feminine Energy:
Much like the symbol of yin and yang, masculine and feminine energy embody a harmonious duality within each of us. It is important to recognize that these energies go beyond gender and are inherent in all human beings. Masculine energy represents strength, assertiveness, logic, and an inclination towards action, while feminine energy consists of compassion, intuition, creativity, and a receptive nature. Together, they form a relationship that is vital for a balanced existence. Let’s take a better look at both energies and see what you can do, to feel more connected to each of them.
