Physically we inhabit a masculine or feminine body and most people identify more strongly with one gender than the other. Sometimes it is the same as our body’s gender and sometimes not. Within every person there are both feminine and masculine energies. Yet often we are not conscious of our relationship to them.
Close your eyes and allow yourself to feel into the energy of the gender you feel more aligned with. Notice how that energy feels in your physical body, mind and heart. Next, allow yourself to embody the opposite gender. How is this energy different? How does it feel in your physical body, mind and heart? Take a piece of paper and draw a line length-wise down the middle, on one side write Feminine and on the other Masculine, below list the qualities of each that you noticed.
Now allow yourself to call both into your body at the same time. How does this feel in your physical body, mind and heart?
Try this: Practice embodying these energies with conscious awareness. Call on your inner masculine when that energy would support what you are doing. Call on your inner feminine when that energy supports what you are feeling. Call on both morning and evening and experience being whole.
