Incidentally, I believe that what you experience on the inside of the self comes to be experienced on the outside of the self. As above, so below. Maybe there will be more honoring of the divine masculine and feminine in each of us if we do this little exercise- who knows. It has to stem from a person wanting to do so. I was shown something interesting about gender and the sexes today.
I was hearing in meditation how the feminine creates and holds space for the masculine to create structure within. With her formlessness, he can create form. But it is more complicated than that and not so rigidly true as each of us are a mix of both gender energies. And gender energies could be seen as polarities. There are characteristics that are traditionally masculine, like being logical for example. I was seeing the feminine as having the intuitive brain, one side lighting up and the masculine the left logical brain. I saw a little door with flow happening in the Corpus Collossum, the middle membrane that separates the two. I see a flow of color between the hemispheres which is what is happening now as we shift. I see our brain's reclaimed in the intuitive and logical sectors working together, which is kind of symbolic to what this blog post is about.
The two opposites of a characteristic, say assertiveness for the masculine,with the feminine characteristic being passivity. I see that they are not really opposites but on a continuum like a slider. Imagine this slider where you can turn up or down a characteristic.In being in this earth experiment, the game of 3D, we have chosen to show up in bodies with differences and also have characteristics that are different. Social conditioning and hormonal differences have made the characteristics break down in masculine and feminine as opposites. They are more of a conntinuum. That each person and their personality has a typical set point to where they are. In fact, male and females (or male or female dominated energy persons) are on the same continuum for all traits that are opposites. Each person is different. Coming to earth and having a human body that is male or female made those traits more polarized that who we really are. Social conditioning is based on fear so there are ways in which we might choose our set point for a characteristic based on that, for example men being afraid of appearing effeminate to others. There are societal expectations for gender. We are all over the continuums and masculine on some traits and feminine on others. The idea is balance for each of us with, to acknowledge that we have masculine and feminine energies.
Our True Selves
I was shown in meditation that our true selves (divine blueprint) are infinite beings who can be assertive in some scenarios where it called for and passive in others. We can adapt and show up however feels good. Our true selves before “gender” and being born into bodies is more in the middle. But it would not be much of an experiment if we all came here the same, right? There is a list of male/female stereotypical differences to get your imagination thinking about this and yourself. Part of remembering who you are is transcending gender conditioning and being the infinite being. It is bringing in your eternal self, beyond this physical body and limited reality filter to something more expansive.
Another thing I was seeing was that when female and male energies in individuals are balanced within and also between two opposites on the spectrum, that synergy and co-creation can happen. We don't have to go toward the middle of a spectrum and be androgenous. We can be who we are and the opposite traited person can actually work with us and help us as we help them. We should not be all the same. We can all be who we are and work together. Unfortunately, that has not been the case as there is misunderstanding and discord between genders and people. Yet, the creation of inner balance and harmony and expansion of consciousness will make incredible harmonic synergy possible. Distortions that are imbalances stemming from the gender conditioning thing have led to imbalances on how we treat one another, like violence in families and couples and warfare that is not needed. It has led to imbalance in how we treat Mother Earth and imbalance in respect to distribution of resources.
The balancing of opposites was shown to me in metaphor as a boy and girl spinning around really fast holding hands and being pulled outward away from each other while they did. Somehow being who they were but in sync with spinning around fast made it possible to play together and enjoy it. We are called to be as children, to be in sync with one another, and to bring playfulness into our relationships. Spinning around represents raising our vibrational frequency.
It is all pointing to the possibility of more harmony on earth especially between genders and how about people who are different from one another. Imagine a world with freedom for all people to be themselves and to also be each of the positive attributes below, and more, depending on the situation. Also, let us honor the way we are as different and weave our differences into beautiful harmonic co-creation. Gender with masculine and feminine when speaking of characteristics is merely a construct. Maybe there are ways we can bust out of our belief systems to give us and everyone else more freedom to be who they are. I was also seeing that it is is coming about that there is more fluidity around this topic, and that as we become more enlightened individually and collectively, we get unstuck. We learn to work together.
Peace within and peace and harmony in the world- this is my wish for today.
