The start of a new year has got me thinking…perhaps we love the ritual of a new year with its resolutions, hopes and plans because it’s the one time of year that feminine energy universally takes center stage. Everyone’s energy shifts into their feminine center as we each tap into our desires to create something out of “the void,” so to speak, to set intentions and create something from nothing. We get to plant seeds into the wombs of our consciousness and connect in hope and faith with each other for the expectation of new life, new births, and new opportunities.
If you’re balanced in your feminine and masculine energies then after the feminine dances with her desires for the year ahead, her call being crystal clear and strong is then able to draw out the masculine to come and see what can be done to hold her dance all year long. It’s that blending of feminine and masculine energies that allows us to see and feel what we want out of our lives and then manifest those desires into reality. We connect with what we truly want and need and then we choose to develop towards those goals
If you’re not balanced with this aspect of your energy, and you overly rely on masculine energy to push through your to do list, then you may find that not only do you give up on your resolutions and intentions and plans more easily, but that you get really fried in the process of trying to achieve them.
There is a better way, and it doesn’t involve giving up your beloved list making self 😉 It is about learning how to engage both energies to work smarter.
How to have it all without burning out
As I’ve previously written, meeting our goals for the day, week, year, or the next five years, is so much easier if we allow our feminine energy to take its turn. A purely masculine approach is to write long to-do lists and push ourselves to acheive each item one by one without listening to our body or heart. I’ve already shown you how you can use your feminine energy to rid your life of stress and to improve your relationship, but you can also use this to reach and succeed in your career goals.
Men in fact are totally on to this. In The Athena Doctrine – a brilliant book with evidence based research on why countries that engage more feminine energy traits are healthier, happier, and wealthier countries. A great example of this – Sweden just made the news by recently making universal the six-hour work day – with the express intent that people will be better able to care for themselves and therefore be more effective while at work – a concept born out of feminine energy if ever there was one! When it comes to work, a purely masculine approach is powering through every day all day to work long hours, sleep less, stay at your desk more and cut back on free time. Sweden is trying to achieve a feminine/masculine balance by allowing people more time to maintain their well-being outside of work. We all know that sitting at our desks all day is not good for our health, but it seems Sweden really listened and decided to take action!
4 daily practices to engage your feminine energy for career success
I want you to have a feel for what it means to engage your feminine energy during every work day. This powerful shift in your approach can reshape your working life in such a way that you will be fully supported by every fiber of your being to succeed in achieving your dreams.
- Remember You Have a Body. Don’t sit down all day and push through what you need to do. Remember your amazing body trying to take care of you and give her a helping hand. Get up and stretch, take 15 minutes for a walk, eat a good breakfast and lunch, don’t sit in front of your computer and don’t stave off hunger with coffee. Channel your feminine energy to nurture the body you have so you can continue to pursue the work you want to do. It’s also about deciding how you want to feel when you’re pursuing those goals. Do you want to feel energized and happy? I hope so! The process can be about enjoying the serendipity and opportunity that comes your way or it can feel like pushing a big boulder up a hill. Engaging your feminine energy is about looking at the quality of the experience you’re having on the way to your goals as well as examining the end goals in themselves.
- Limit Your List. All of the research into concentration and productivity at work suggest we really ought to only focus on one big project a day, but I know that’s not realistic, so let’s settle on two. Take your task list to task and use your masculine energy to project manage in an optimal way what needs to get done. Then use your mama bear feminine energy to hold the boundaries, by saying no to things that distract you and to protect the time and headspace you need to complete those tasks well.
- Take a Daily Social Pleasure Break. Always build time into your day to connect with your community and in a way that feels good. If you just got one of those two big projects done, then go ahead and celebrate that with someone. You could call a friend or your partner, talk them through something you just achieved and why you’re excited about it. Engage your feminine energy of communication and connection to celebrate and even help bring things into fruition faster!
- Connect with Your Heart. This can be done through meditation, a simple self-care ritual, a quick walk outside, a cuddle with your child…The more quiet, reflective time you allow yourself, the more your creative juices will flow and the more productive you’ll be when you sit back down to work. You can’t have your best ideas if you stay in your office and in your head all day long. Engaging your feminine energy this way will allow your intuition and inspiration to guide you more and more.
Always remember, that once you have the right information about how your body really works, you can start making health and life choices that finally start to work for you! You can do this – the science of your body is on your side!
