When people are on their business journey, it’s so common to feel stuck and burnt out. When we think about building a business, we think of working relentlessly and working ourselves up. This is the thing about our mindset.
People and especially women are brainwashed into thinking that to grow a business and be successful in the corporate world you need to leave behind your femininity and “man up”. We start thinking that masculine energy is “more important”. We start working ourselves up and then end up being stuck and feeling depressed.
People don’t associate feminine energy with business growth. I am here to debunk that.
What exactly is Feminine energy?
When we say feminine energy, the first thing that comes to our mind is tenderness. While it’s true, that’s not all. Femininity is also about creativeness, nurturing, rest , collaboration and being receptive to your emotions and your body. It’s being in touch with yourself and life. While masculine energy focuses on grinding yourself and shutting down of emotions, feminine energy embraces the emotions.
Energetic physiology of our humans
Here is the thing; it doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman, everyone has both the feminine energy and masculine energy in themselves. For a balanced living and a successful life, these energies should be balanced. One must embrace both the sides of self. However, when it comes to business growth and corporate life, women shut their feminine energy, which leads to imbalance.
How can your feminine energy help you in business?
The energy of Recovery
When we are working towards our career goal, we want to give it our ‘everything’. This is where the masculine energy comes up. However, they end up staying in your head and neglecting their emotions.
As important it is work, rest and regeneration is an important part of growth.
“And it’s in the recovery cycle when the actual growth happens”
-The 5 AM Club
Our feminine energy encourages us to take a break, recover and grow.
The energy of self-awareness
Our feminine energy focuses on self-reflection. Taking some time to understand yourself, your emotions and your body is a vital part of life. When we start understanding ourself and our emotions, we become able to deal with the challenges that life throws at us.
Naturally, it better equips us to deal with challenges we face in building our business.
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
The energy of Creation
Women are known to be the creators of life, of love. That is because feminine energy has the power to create and build. This includes building business empires. Feminine energy shows us how to nurture and grow things. It connects us to the creative forces of our universe.
The energy of collaboration
The power is in the numbers, it always has been. When people work together and support each other they grow better. Our feminine energy encourages us to walk hand in hand with others as opposed to being a ‘lone wolf’.
When we are building a business or working on our career, this helps us in connecting with people on a higher level and collaborating for better chances at success.
How to unblock your feminine energy?
We all have experienced that stage in our life when our feminine energy gets blocked. We have hustled so hard that we can’t remember what our goal is. There are days when I am unable to think and create because I am so overworked. this is what we call the blocked feminine energy’. we lose the touch with ourselves. The question is- how to unblock our Feminine energy?
1. Take a break
If you are ever feeling stuck and unimaginative. If you can’t concentrate on work you are supposed to do, it’s a sign that you need a break. Just take a step back and let the things be as they are.
2. Write down your thoughts
What better way to understand yourself is there, apart from journaling. When you write your thoughts down, you are better able to analyze them and understand them.
3. Take a walk in nature
It is proven that spending time in nature can boost our productivity and happiness. When we are happy and productive naturally we are able to perform better. So the next time you feel stuck, take a walk in nature.
4. Pamper yourself
Embracing your femininity is all about being in touch with yourself. there is no better way to do it other than pampering the body you live in. go take a shower, go to the spa, get your hair and nails done. Do anything to show love to your own body.
5. Connect with a loved one
We discussed how feminine energy is the energy of collaboration. So when we feel stuck, calling up or texting our friends and family helps us to get out of that block.
In The End, it is all about living a balanced and happy life. Balancing the both sides of your existence is an important part of it. Stop suppressing one half of yourself.
