The zeitgeist of femininity has changed a lot in the last 60 or so years and we have seen a massive shift from un-integrated feminine to un-integrated masculine in women. This shows up in women as a boundary against life being able to penetrate in, a bubble of self-sufficiency and defense. It’s an important step towards integration, but when stuck here, the feminine loses sensitivity, openness, and cannot connect to her feeling capacity for discernment or give her gifts to the masculine.
If you as a woman are stuck here, you will find yourself in de-polarised relationships, wondering where your creativity and vibrancy has gone; how come it is that you are carrying the masculine better than the actual men in your life; and beginning to buy the lie that the only way to get ahead as a woman these days is to be a better man than men are.
Whilst we’ve been given the impression that this is the end point, there is in fact another important step to take: that of integrating the masculine you’ve recently (in evolutionary terms) got in contact with, in with your innate feminine. When these two polarities are integrated and in balance with each other, the feminine part of you brings the capacity to feel, to intuit, to be open to your masculine need for bounded-ness, and together you become able to birth your feminine sense of FEELING DISCERNMENT into the world.
In short: Raw Innate Feminine + Cultivated Masculine = Feminine Feeling Discernment
