by Dr. Nikki Starr Noce MD: As individuals and as a collective, we will know the greatest peace and joy…
when the masculine and feminine energies become balanced–both within ourselves and in society.
As I shared in my last post, our external reality is a projection of our internal state. Thus the world we are experiencing reflects the excessive masculine energy within most people. When out of balance we see an overly worked, sexually focused, aggressive way of existing.
It’s important to be clear: Masculine is not “bad.” Feminine does not mean female/woman. Masculine does not mean male/man.
Indeed women usually embody more feminine traits and men more masculine, but both of these traits live within us. The feminine needs the masculine, just as the masculine needs the feminine. Each have their superpowers.
When in balance, the masculine is admirably strong, decisive, confident, focused, direct and action oriented, with logical, linear and leadership ways of relating. Just as men, women benefit from these traits too.
We currently live in a masculine society that values and focuses on “doing.” Because the masculine is out of balance with the feminine (described here), we see a consumption based way of living where resources are overly extracted for the sake of a competitive market. War comes from overly aggressive ways of relating. If masculine AND feminine decision making guided our countries, perhaps war would not exist.
Awareness is the first step to creating balance.
