As women, we are often encouraged to embrace traits and characteristics that are traditionally associated with masculinity, such as ambition, assertiveness, and competitiveness. Something your average Joe coworker called Mark displays “naturally”.
However, for us women, it is just as important to embrace and celebrate our divine feminine energy. Even when we feel the need to push that part of us down in order to prosper and even survive in some cases, closing the door to a very big part of ourselves can only do more harm than good in the long run.
To kick things off, here are several reasons why you should embrace your femininity.
It’s an important part of who you are.
Your femininity is an integral part of your identity as a woman. Trying to suppress or hide this aspect of yourself can leave you feeling unfulfilled and disconnected from your nature. Obviously, some of us have it more, some less, but identifying that aspect of ourselves is very important.
By embracing your femininity, you can feel more comfortable in your own skin and develop a stronger sense of self-worth. Not to mention that in comparison to masculinity, femininity is much more intuitive and nurturing, which, despite popular beliefs, can also benefit your career and other aspects of life.
What is feminine energy?
Feminine energy is a term used to describe the qualities and characteristics that are traditionally associated with women. These qualities are often described as being nurturing, empathetic, intuitive, creative, and collaborative. Feminine energy is often seen as the opposite of masculine energy, which is associated with qualities like assertiveness, competitiveness, and ambition.
It’s important to note that both men and women can embrace feminine energy, just as both men and women can exhibit masculine energy. The key is to find a balance between these two energies, rather than favoring one over the other. When we embrace both our masculine and feminine energies, we can create a more balanced and harmonious way of being.
Just because the world is shaped for men, doesn’t necessarily mean it has to stay in that shape.
Here is what can happen when you know how to tap into your feminine energy:
It can help you connect with others.
Embracing your femininity can also help you connect with others, especially other women. Women often bond over shared experiences and common interests, and embracing your femininity can help you find common ground with others.
Additionally, showing vulnerability and empathy – qualities often associated with femininity – can help you build deeper, more meaningful relationships with others.
It’s safe to say that femininity naturally gravitates more towards vulnerability, which in itself is very honest and raw. When it comes to building trust and relationships with others, that’s the best approach for a long-lasting relationship of any kind. And both men and women can increase their femininity for exactly that.
It can boost your confidence.
Embracing your femininity can also boost your confidence. When you are comfortable in your own skin and embrace all aspects of yourself, including your femininity, you are more likely to feel confident and self-assured. This can translate into all areas of your life, from your personal relationships to your career.
In addition, with the vulnerability and realness that femininity comes with, it is easier to accept things about ourselves, as well as be honest about what makes us happy. In all areas of life, really.
This translates to improving the things that are genuine “us”. This, of course, only leads to more confidence and a better way of us carrying out words, actions, and body language that feels the most natural to us.
Not to mention the skill improvements that may prosper in this acceptance. The more we know and accept who we are, the more we become exactly who we need to be, who we always were supposed to be. This is just one of many feminine energy traits!
And there’s no better person to be than yourself.
It can make you more creative.
I just finished watching a show set in 18th century Scotland, when Scotts were fighting for freedom from the British army. Their masculinity was the thing that made them go into battle, a losing one at that. It was their masculinity that drove them to save their motherland and protect their people.
On the other hand, the women had to be extremely creative with ways to heal, cook and aid the masses. From herbs to creative ways of preventing pregnancies and arranged marriages–women have for centuries found shelter in their creativity to survive a man’s world and its rules. Even today. It’s just in our nature.
Femininity is often associated with creativity, intuition, and imagination. By embracing your femininity, you may find that you become more in touch with your creative side.
This can lead to increased inspiration, better problem-solving skills, and a greater ability to think outside of the norm which is often a necessary skill to have.
It can help you find balance.
Embracing and healing your femininity can also help you find balance in your life. Feminine qualities such as empathy, compassion, and nurturing can help counterbalance the more assertive, competitive traits that are often associated with masculinity.
By embracing both your masculine and feminine traits, you can create a more balanced, well-rounded version of yourself.
The more we resist our nature, the more hardships will persist. You can’t go against what’s been set in stone, the genetic one, that is. Acceptance and embrace are the key to balance. And when you have balance, the odds of falling down to your character’s death are minimal.
It can help you achieve your goals.
Contrary to popular belief, femininity, and ambition are not mutually exclusive. By embracing your femininity, you can develop a greater sense of self-awareness and clarity about your goals and priorities. This can help you create a clear path toward achieving your goals, whether they are personal or professional.
As we’ve said, the more we know who you are, the more you’ll gravitate toward the things you are best at. That in itself leads to a much happier life.
It can help you stand out.
In a world where women are often encouraged to act “more like men” in order to succeed, embracing your femininity can actually help you stand out. By being true to yourself and your unique qualities, you can differentiate yourself from others and make a lasting impression.
The people who leave the most lasting impressions aren’t the ones trying to be something they’re not, but only the ones being exactly who they are.
It can help you break down gender stereotypes.
Finally, embracing your femininity can help break down gender stereotypes and pave the way for future generations of women. By showing that femininity and strength are not mutually exclusive, you can help create a more inclusive and accepting society.
We have for too long been playing ancient men’s games and losing, quite frankly. Cheating more spaces where women’s femininity is embraced and even longed for will help future generations embrace themselves more and more.
Some Final Thoughts
In conclusion, embracing your femininity can be a powerful and empowering experience. It can help you connect with others, be more assertive, navigate life’s challenges, be more creative, cultivate self-love and self-care, break free from gender stereotypes, and inspire others. So if you’ve been hesitant to embrace your femininity, take the leap and discover all the wonderful strengths and gifts that come with it. You might just surprise yourself with how.
Embracing your femininity can be a liberating and empowering experience. Femininity is often associated with traits like softness, nurturing, and emotional intelligence.
Unfortunately, these traits are often undervalued in our society and can be seen as weaknesses. But in reality, embracing your femininity can be a strength that can help you navigate the challenges of life with grace and resilience.
