Being and Doing
As social creatures we learn from a very young age what is acceptable to our fellow humans and what isn’t. The children are taking in the world without filters, absorbing the patterns and thoughts of those around them Their energy system begins to form and categorize beliefs, which later will shape their realities. For more about this topic, read my blog about your energy bubble.
Balancing our energy field requires significant awareness of ourselves and our beliefs and how they are created.
Masculine and Feminine Energy
Masculine energy is about boundaries within oneself. The ability to do what is right for the single person, despite what is happening around them. Masculine energy is the action-taker and decision-maker within us.
Feminine energy is about being and creating who you are. It has a nurturing, fragile quality. It is the potential to create something that leads us into the action masculine.
The Balancing act
It is important to know that there is no good or bad masculine or feminine energy. Either can be expressed negatively, when things are out of balance, but it is normally from an incorrect relationship with the two energies, rather than one being worse than the other. We all have both in our own systems and they work like an orchestra playing loud at times and quite at others.
As always for the kids, it is about modeling these things as much as possible and to give them a vocabulary. Give them equal worth as well. Making sure that everyone values both the being and the doing within each other. In kids class we are going to talk about those spaces more and how we can balance them out.
