Our energy field is made up of two opposing energies: Yin and yang. The yin energy is also called feminine and the yang energy masculine. Every human being is made up of both of these energies no matter what gender they have, but usually one of the two is more dominant.
Most women (with a lot of exceptions) have a more yin/feminine energy. The qualities of this energy are: passive, surrendering, intuitive, receiving, caring, nurturing, connected to the body, rooted in being, feeling the connection of all beings etc.
Most men (with a lot of exceptions) have a more yang/masculine energy. The qualities of this energy are:
active, adventurous, creative, discerning, planning, driving force is manifesting (bringing things into existence), clarity, strategic etc.
Which energy is more dominant inside of you doesn’t really matter. Every human being is wired in a different way and that’s totally fine. Maybe it helps you to realize which energy is more dominant inside of you, so you can make better choices for your wellbeing. A yin-wired person will definitely feel more at home in a job or environment that supports this side and vice versa.
Things get out of balance when one of these energies inside of you becomes extreme. For example, if you are addicted to doing and you make decisions entirely based on your rational mind, you will suffer. You will most likely work too much, get burned out, feel disconnected from the people around you and spend too much time in your head etc. This is what’s happening all around the world at the moment because most societies are ruled by the masculine energies.
There is also the possibility to be too extreme in the other direction. If the feminine energy is too extreme, then there is too much passivity and the person has a problem with taking action or never gets anything done. Obviously this can cause a lot of problems too.
If you have a feeling that you tend to go too extreme into one of these directions, here are a few suggestions for you to counterbalance this tendency:
To counterbalance an extreme yang/masculine energy:
If you tend to be very active, busy and you feel stressed out a lot, you can counterbalance an extreme yang/masculine energy with…
To counterbalance an extreme yin/feminine energy:
If you tend to be too passive, too lethargic and you don’t seem to get anything done (make sure, you’re ego is not tricking you and you actually do get a lot of things done), you can counterbalance an extreme yin energy with…
I hope these suggestions will help you to bring more balance into your body, mind and soul.
Let me know which energy is dominant inside of you and what you're struggling with more: inactivity or being too busy?
Have a great start in the week!
So much love,
