Hello hello my beautiful souls! Today we are jumping into our final law of the 12 spiritual laws—the Law of Gender. I can’t believe we’ve made it this far! If this is the first post your tuning into, welcome, and you can find the remaining laws linked at the bottom of this post.
Let’s jump in!
The Law of Gender
The Law of Gender states that we all have the potential to express both feminine and masculine energy because both can be found within us. This is the law of the yin and the yang.
Like nature, feminine energy is like a seed and masculine energy is like pollen. The feminine, the seed (or the idea), needs to be fertilized by the masculine, the pollen (or the action). A seed cannot come into fruition without fertilization, and pollen is useless without a seed to pollinate. In other words, nature requires both energies in equal amounts to thrive. Our world, and our feeling of fulfillment, requires us to pull from both energies in any given situation. Our goal, in order to manifest the things we want, is to achieve balance between the two in our lives. And to achieve this balance, you may need to tap into the energy you’re not as comfortable with.
Even though this law uses the word “gender”, is not referring to sex or gender as we know it in terms of being male or female; instead, the Law of Gender is a representation of the types of energy that are more masculine in nature and the types of energy that are more feminine in nature. To be clear, this law has no relation to your sex organs; There are plenty of examples of women who have more masculine energy, and a men who have more feminine energy.
Personally, I’ve always had more masculine energy so I’m working to balance out my feminine. You’ve probably heard me in past episodes focusing on “doing” less and “being” more—working to embrace more of my feminine qualities. In fact, I’d probably say that most people have more masculine energy because society has and encourages more masculine energy.
The business world places a heavy emphasis on masculine qualities and can influence people, even people who are naturally more feminine, to shift into masculine energy in order to “succeed in the business world”. However, I think that’s where we went wrong as a society and thankfully, I think we’re starting to see a shift toward including more feminine qualities into business which can help us achieve that balance we want which means that we can be MORE successful as a result. I’ll be the first to admit that I tried business the super masculine way and only got so far. It was when I integrated both energies equally that I felt, not only more like myself, but more successful and confident.
Let’s talk about the difference between masculine and feminine energy so you know which you’re pulling from more in life.
What is the difference between masculine and feminine energy?
Masculine energy is based in knowledge. It is application, action, logic, practicality, stability, willpower, focus, drive, and clarity. If you’re struggling to stay motivated, or you’re really impulsive, chaotic, or you’re feeling lost, you might need to tap into your masculine energy more. Alternatively, if you’re always on the go, never allow downtime, can’t sit still, and operate in a black and white world, you might be tapping into your masculine energy too much.
Feminine Energy is based on knowing. It is intuition, creativity, passion, nurturing, authentic, open, flowing, dynamic, and perceptive. If you’re feeling blocked, hyper critical, resistant, unfulfilled, or feel disconnected from yourself and those around you, you might need to tune into your feminine energy more. If you’re struggling to execute, move passed creating, find yourself, or become overcome with the emotions of others, you might need be tapping into your feminine energy too much.
As an example of each, if have too much feminine energy and you’re imbalanced, you might get stuck daydreaming without ever taking action. If you have too much masculine energy and you’re imbalanced, you might spend too much time being practical and killing great ideas before you start. Having the best of both worlds will make sure we’re striking the balance between productivity and creation.
As individuals who want to manifest the things we want, we have to embrace the yin and the yang. To be in balance means not just having an idea, but taking action. Not just having knowledge, but knowing. Not just having passion, but also logic. Falling into any one extreme will create an imbalance that can throw you off of your course, just like many of the other laws we talked about already.
When I talk about balance, I’m not saying that everyday you need to balance both. Right? If you’ve had a really creative day, it doesn’t mean you need to end with some serious action or logic. I’m talking about finding balance over a period of time, or over the course of our lives. There are certain phases of our lives where we will need to lean more into one or the other. If you’re taking a series of tests over the course of a difficult semester, it’s okay to lean more into your masculine to get things done for awhile. If you’re trying to make a major life decision or change, it’s okay to lean more into the feminine for awhile.
Our goal is to achieve balance over the course of our lives, understanding that we will go through phases and experiences where we eb and flow between the two. And, if you notice that you’re feeling drained, unmotivated, or exhausted, you might want to check to see if you need to shift into the opposite energy for rest. If you’ve operated in the masculine energy for a long time, feminine energy can feel like a rest, even if it’s awkward at first. If you’ve operated in feminine energy for a long time, masculine energy can feel like a breath of fresh air, and it will be really challenging to embrace at first. It’s always uncomfortable shifting into the energy that we’re not used to, so try it out little by little and see how it feels.
In order to function at our peak as individuals and as a society, this law encourages us to utilize both our feminine and our masculine energies because that is when we are our most powerful.
To manifest what you want utilizing the Law of Gender, learn to pull from the feminine and the masculine energy, as needed, in any scenario. The person who can successfully balance the two in most situations will have knowledge and wisdom beyond their years.
Have a fantastic rest of your week, and I will catch y’all next Monday. Until then, go out there and manifest some miracles!
