PressThis: How To Balance our Shiva (Masculine Energy) & Shakti (Feminine Energy): 6 Tips.


I have come across an article that explained the balance of masculine and feminine energies. Regardless of your gender, it had been said that we hold both the masculine and feminine energies. I had shared the 6 tips from their article on how to balance the energies. It’s informative and useful, and if you like to, you can click on link to read more.

(Below are the 6 tips you can use to balance the masculine and feminine energies based on the Elephant Journal article.)


Here are some of the practices to establish Shiva and Shakti balance:

1. Laugh.

Laughter is the highest form of spirituality, in my opinion. The heart is wide open, the belly is filled with oxygen, and it is a complete cleanse for the energetic system. Laughter softens us and allows us to be more present and therefore receptive.

2. Own your sensuality.

Do you even know how you like to be touched? What smells do you love? What is your favorite food? What do you love to look at? What music entices your ears? Bathe yourself in all the things that excite your senses. Give yourself the gift of sensuality. Be slow and feel.

3. Get into nature.

Nature is the perfect example of masculine and feminine balance. Just look at a tree. Those roots are pretty deep and are essential otherwise the tree will not be able to stand. The leaves, however, are dancing around. They are contained by the branches which are contained by the roots. All parts are equally necessary.

4. Move into relationship.

Being in relationship has been my greatest teacher—I had to surrender and pretty much destroy my former self in order to be in it fully. Instead of subscribing to the mental thought wave that I am “losing my freedom” by being in relationship, I chose to focus on what I’m gaining. I have learned more about myself, my habits, my fears, and my desires by being with someone than I had by being alone. We are wired to be connected with other people and other people serve as a mirror.

The feminine aspect of relationship comes when two people pay attention to the relationship’s energy instead of rushing to label it. I recently overheard a couple on a first date talking about marriage and kids. Relationships have a frequency of their own, and slowing down and tuning into that is a skill only the feminine can allow.

5. Travel.

Travel takes us out of our routines and out of our minds. Be spontaneous. I don’t suggest on partaking in a pre-planned tour for this exercise. Go somewhere you have never been and don’t stay in a hotel. Rent an Air B & B or stay with a local family. Eat the local food. Go out and make new friends. Trust your intuition as you find yourself in a new place.

6. Alternate Nostril Breathing.

Alternate nostril breathing, otherwise known as Nadi Shodhana, is an uplifting and calming breathing practice that works in just a few minutes. This practices works directly with the right and left sides of the body and brain to cultivate harmony and mental clarity. It helps us clear blocked energy streams in the body.

Directions:
Sit comfortably with a tall spine. Place your left hand on your lap, palm face up or face down. With your right hand, fold down your index and middle finger so they are gently touching the center of your palm. Place your ring finger on your left nostril and softly close the nostril. Take a deep slow breath in through your right nostril. When the breath is full, then gently switch and release your left nostril and close off your right nostril with your thumb. Close your eyes. Take a long, slow exhale through your left nostril. When the lungs are empty, keep the hand as it is and take another deep breath in through your left nostril. When you reach the top, repeat by switching to exhale through your right. Inhale again through your right nostril, switch fingers, and exhale through your left. Repeat. Five minutes per day is all you need.

Thought for the Day


Sometimes the most beautiful opportunities bloom on the roadside where life has created a split in the road of our lives. 

Yet we are so busy contemplating which path to take that we don’t take time to rest and see or smell the pleasant scent of the beauty that surrounds us that could easily point us in the direction we are meant to take.

Enjoy your day! xo
