By the same token, feminine energy is here to BALANCE OUT THE SYSTEM. Feminine is the “fairer sex” because it balances out all that intellect in the head with emotion and feelings in the heart. That’s why “female intuition” is a powerful tool for discerning feelings and truth. The beauty of the feminine is it brings nurturing and care-taking. Feminine is about connection and bonding when masculine can sometimes be dark and solitary in order to “unplug” and relax. I call it H.E.R.S.™ and it stands for Human Emotional Response System. One challenge of an emotional navigation system is that occasionally it can be overwhelming when all that emotion hits at once or gets bottled up inside for too long. Put another way, if masculine is about survival, feminine is about enhancement.
Different – and perfectly complimentary
As you can see, our strengths, abilities and gifts are quite different – but all of them are critical to the complete human experience. They are meant to be complimentary yet somehow we’ve DE-volved over the years in many ways from a cooperative model to a competitive model. Generations of misunderstandings and power struggles brought us great benefits like women’s suffrage, equal rights and other necessary world-changing advances...but left unchecked, the shift can become adversarial or even downright antagonistic when it goes too far.
So if this much “feels” like it could be true...what else could it mean?
Pick up any woman’s magazine at the checkout counter and it will likely have numerous articles that are “less than flattering” when it comes to their conclusions regarding textbook masculine behavior. I ask the question: is it possible that the writer’s offering a biased opinion created through a feminine filter? Consider this:
• Are men just players out for one thing?
While it may be true in many cases that masculine energy frequently prefers to experience love through physical or kinesthetic contact of some kind, what if it’s not exactly the kind of heartless victimizing behavior that is too often portrayed? The fact is, usually masculine energy (which is logic-based) opens to love through sex while feminine energy (which is emotion-based) opens to sex through love. There’s that complimentary concept again. While it’s most certainly painful to feel “used,” that kind of belief focuses on a victim mentality...which just happens to be the EXACT opposite of what men really want...an empowered and radiant woman who knows her value.
• Do men avoid commitment?
While it may “appear” to have some basis in fact, the truth is men want love also...but it has to meet their needs as well. The challenge is masculine energy is hard-wired with a strong desire for freedom so that conflicts with the feminine need to feel “safe” or in other words, “committed.” What if the issue isn’t commitment at all and it’s simply a timing issue and a straight-up decision regarding the pros and cons of giving up one need for another? I submit to you that men absolutely WILL commit and even die for you when they have enough good reasons to do it.
