Entering into a new year and a new decade is a great time for us to reflect on ourselves and to use our insight to optimize our lives.
We all have a mix of masculine and feminine energies in a dynamic state of movement.
The masculine energies are characterized by linearity, orientation to goals, and mental focus.
The feminine energies are circular, concerned by feeling and emotion, and they expand the mind.
Instead of seeing these energies as gender specific, we can shift the paradigm by seeing these as how the Divine has taken consciousness. The play of consciousness is that it lives in ways that are always pulsing between contraction and expansion. Indeed, we directly experience this pulsation in our lives. Whether we know it or not, this pulsation is happening microscopically in each of our cells and cosmically in the life of the universe.
When you cease to label these energies and reject associated cultural biases, you distill them to pure energy. You then can see and operate at the spiritual level.
The process of self reflection can be one in which you contemplate and journal about how these primary energies manifest in your life. What is your tendency when managing your job, handling family matters, and relating to other people? Again, we all have a mix of these energies and the proportion changes with every context. There are, however, distinct patterns that emerge if you only begin to become aware of them and then articulate them.
Having explored and then discovered your patterns in the way that you live your life, you can achieve a more fulfilling life by balancing your energies.
You will have a preference about how you do things in your life. We are all creatures of habit. The question is, “are these habits serving your vision in the highest way?” If not (this is the self reflection piece), it is up to you to cultivate that energy that is suppressed or undeveloped in order to integrate your self.For example, when you find that you tend to place high value on your feelings rather than on analysis when arriving at a decision, you can begin to find integration by bringing your mind into play. You are invited to integrate these energies into a divinely synchronized pulsation.
Practice attuning to a bigger energy that holds all of these energies within you. The more that you remember the source of everything within you, the easier it will be to align these energies in ways that bring greater harmony to your life. A great indicator of enhanced harmony is when you experience a deeper sense of peace and fulfillment in the application of this practice. A deeper intuition and intelligence will sense when your energies have reached a dynamic balance and you will have reached that long awaited sense of wholeness that every human being innately seeks.
This is the way of a balanced life. The integration of the primary energies of the universe into a divine relationship. May you continue to remember to align with your highest part in ways that bring greater harmony to all the parts of you.
