EP 17: Balancing the Masculine & Feminine Energy on the Planet

Photo Credit: Unknown

In this episode, Tanya shares why circle truly is the antithesis to the patriarchy. She speaks about the responsibility that women have to first work on themselves, and address their own toxic masculine traits and qualities, before seeking to shift their relationships with men. 

By remembering, reclaiming and reigniting the divine feminine within each of us, we can contribute to a greater balance of divine masculine and feminine energies in the world.

Consider/Ask Yourself: 

How do you connect back to your super powers as a woman? 

How do you reclaim your voice and change your story?

How do you shift your relationships with men?

How do you tap into your intuition and learn to trust yourself?

Tanya’s Question: 

How do we address the imbalance of toxic masculine and feminine energies in the world?

Tanya’s Key Insights and Ahas:

She notices the theme of emasculating her husband coming up in her relationship. 

She notices that she doesn’t let him help her.

She notices that she doesn’t let herself receive anything from him.

If her husband tries to say something, she dismisses it or argues with him.

She’s sharp with her husband during arguments.

Her sharpness contributes to him feeling a loss of power.

She feels a sense of competition with him. 

She’s aware this dynamic mirrors the patriarchal system within their relationship. 

She doesn’t want to be in this dynamic, it doesn’t feel good. 

She recognises it’s because she doesn’t feel safe.

She feels she has to fight for, and prove herself. 

She feels stuck.

She feels tight and controlling. 

She recognises the generations of women who have been suppressed and oppressed, and lost their power over and over again. 

How to be BRAVE:

Be responsible for how you show up in your life, and consider your contribution to the patriarchy. 

Own your worth and the gifts you have to share with the world. 

Go inwards, be curious, and explore your divine feminine through the power of circle.  

Step fully into your sovereignty, your power and be clear about setting boundaries. 

Trust in the cycle of life, the mystery of the divine. You don’t need to know all the answers now, trust that the universe has your back. 

Takeaways For You:

If you want to see change in the world, it starts with you. 

If it’s something you learned, you can unlearn it, and you can learn something new. 

You don’t have to be everything to everyone. Honour your contributions and gifts. 

We’re each responsible for cultivating and honouring the divine masculine and feminine within ourselves. 

Circle is the balance of the masculine and feminine, it’s where we come into alignment as women.  

When we stand together in circle, we come together in sisterhood.
