5 Feminine Energies You Don’t Want To Ignore, If You Want To Do Great Creative Work
Whatever your gender, there are 5 feminine energies you don’t want to ignore, if you want to do consistent creative work. The masculine or feminine energy of creating is not something I have ever thought about or talked about before. But someone asked me if I could address the feminine energy of creating, and so I’ve done a little research.
The difference between feminine and masculine energy
The feminine energy is the energy of being, of receiving, of acceptance and intuition.
The masculine energy is more about doing, go-getting, setting goals and taking action. That drive to succeed is perhaps more masculine energy.
We have both energies. Regardless of your gender, you are both feminine and masculine energy. Some of us have more of one energy than the other, but we are a mix, a blend of yin and yang.
You know when you shine a light on something, then you see it everywhere? I see this topic of energy so many places at the moment. We are energy, money is energy. Some people’s energy drains you, while other people make you feel great and optimistic.
It’s all energy.
5 feminine energies you don’t want to ignore if you want to do great creative work.
I don’t think in terms of feminine or masculine energy when I create, but I definitely feel them. You have to know yourself and how you work best.
This is why I say creativity is personal and cannot be compared. You and I are different energy and we respond to different energy.
I don’t respond well to Tony Robbins’ energy. At all. I’m an empath and introvert and I respond better to a kind, calm, and funny energy. I much prefer Mel Robbins’ energy. And they have a similar message. You’ll probably feel the same way about some people. It’s not about who’s right or wrong, we just respond to different energies.
I have put together a list of 5 feminine energies I practice, in more or less successful ways.
Listen to your intuition and trust it. If it’s telling you not to move ahead with something, listen to that gut feeling.
Reflection. Set aside some time to reflect on how far you’ve come, why your creative work is important for you, and where you’d like to go next.
Set boundaries. In the kindest way possible, say no to more, no to being disturbed, no to negativity (your own and other people’s).
Be tolerant and patient with yourself. Creating is a marathon.
Practice self-compassion. This is so huge. I recommend Kristen Neff’s work (Also, make sure you join my newsletter for self-compassion tips)
BONUS TIP: Let go of the need to be constantly busy and rest instead. With no feelings of guilt.
BONUS BONUS TIP: Respect your introvert, ambivert or extrovert personality. If you’re introvert, like me, you recharge your energy by unplugging, going within and being alone.
Bottom line, listen to yourself and no one else. You know best how you feel and what works for you.
