It’s important to understand that Energy is not the same as (or equivalent to) gender.
“Traditional” gender roles have their “grounding” in evolutionary anthropology. In primitive societies men ventured far from the clan or tribe in order to hunt for food while women stayed near the hearth to “gather” and care for children. The reason for this division of labor (stretching back eons into our prehistory) was simple — survival of the tribe depended upon protecting and safe-guarding the lives of women.
Seen through this perspective, gender roles were based primarily on function, on “knowing your place” and “doing your job” for the greater community.
In turn, the part played by ancient rites of passage ceremonies supported this “worldview” and marked the symbolic passage from childhood into adulthood as boys transitioned from the “world of women” (interior space) to the “world of men” (exterior space).
But knowing why the world was divided this way in the past does nothing for us today. For the simple fact of the matter is this — maintaining or upholding the status quo is nothing more than a glorification of what no longer serves.
The tide is turning. And it has been for some time now.
Sadly, sometimes these “growing pains” especially hurt or shake us up. And the pace of change in our life or in our world can feel slow. Sometimes painfully so. Yet, Yang Energy comes to remind you that empowerment and action are not gender specific.
Now is the time for you to act, to lead, to make a stand or lend support to someone physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
- Strategic thinking
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- Are you more comfortable taking the lead or following others?
- Does a new or recent situation call for a broader perspective or strategic approach?
- Is there a problem challenging your level of determination to follow through to the end?
- If you feel compelled to act or take a stand, what might be holding you back from getting started?
