Tapping Into Your Feminine Expression

Focus on your core essence of masculinity. Strengthen your healthy masculine expression and posture. Do this and your feminine expression will reveal itself as required when relevant.

This can be a sensitive subject… Women and men are different – culturally, biologically, hormonally. We also share so many similarities in terms of the full spectrum of the human experience. We are more the same than we are different, however, we need to celebrate both and also account for the difference.

There is at times a great pressure in our society to conform. For men, it can be confusing. Lately, many of us in the western paradigm are told to tap into more feminine expressions and posturing.

But what does this mean? Men want to relate to women and be near women and are not sure how to. They are also moving through grief, guilt, shame, regret and forgiveness of self and of the collective. This is not a pity party. This is us taking a look at how can we connect and be attractive to each other in healthy ways AND grow in unison.

Many women or prominent cultural discourse may want men to be in a place where they can give themselves fully. The mistake we often make in relatability is we seek and “over-value” familiarity because it feels really safe. There has been and still is inequity and oppression, so it makes sense that there is a swing in how we see each other. However, extreme expression in this realm of gender dynamics may desensitize our polarities and we lose attraction and magnetism.

Polarity and difference attract and keeps us interested and it compliments who we are. Sameness creates circles of safety and inclusion but we cannot all be the same. Equity is what we are really after, not equality…

Too much sameness and similarity weaken our bonds and if there is no polarity there is no pull towards each other. We think that if we make men more “feminine” OR more like women they will be able to connect and understand women more and vice versa. Not necessarily the case.

We lose our ability to relate if we don’t allow ourselves to be ourselves. This means honouring our biology, culture, history, and evolution and much more. 

One is glad to be of service.

No Man Is An Island

As men we are inadvertently told and shown that independence reigns supreme and whilst I am a massive advocate for self-reliance, solitude and autonomy we still need each other. We are relational beings and the days of the lone wolf are over. There is a balance and by feeling, we neutralize that pain. We don’t allow the complex layers of our psyche to take over.

The Power Of Admiration

So many relationships breakdown because we are not attentive to the beauty our partners hold within them – we ignore them and we become distant.

We essentially cannot see this beauty and wonder because we do not recognize our own value and power, a vicious cycle of hide and seek occurs.

Repressing Longings Hurts Others

When we repress our deep longings, we hurt others.

Importantly, we hurt and deny ourselves of pleasure and joy. When we do this, we limit our expression and the quality of relationships we can receive in our lives.

We Are Not Weakened In Luxury And Comfort

Men, YES… you can be in this world of luxury and comfort and not be softened and weakened by it.

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with luxury and ease in life. In fact, it is something we all naturally pursue with zest. However, too much of it can make us weak, can hinder our ability to live an authentic life, where we abiding by some of our natural states.
