~ Excerpts from Our Friend, and Author Shannon Kaiser's Article in Spiritual & Health Magazine HERE
1.) Drop From Your Head Into Your Heart: Move from your head, the overthinker, the answerer, the rationalizer, into your heart space, the way of oneness, unity, compassion, and kindness, and you will see a shift in your life.
2.) Connect With Nature: This is one of the best ways to connect to this omnipresent energy. In nature, the feminine creative energy runs wild. One of the most transformational tools for awakening to your inner light is grounding (also known as earthing): directly connecting our body to the earth to restore the electromagnetic balance we need to maintain optimal health and healing.
3.) Find Balance: The Sacred Feminine is not about gender, as this energy lives in all of us, but much of our society operates from a masculine "hustle and do" mentality, which doesn't allow for much room to just be. The energies of action (masculine) and allowing (feminine) coexist, and we must find the balance between the two. Embodying just one of the two will either lead us nowhere or cause us to push so hard that we are left frustrated and exhausted. Balance is key. When we find it, we are both taking inspired action and receiving and appreciating all of our desires.
4.) Honor the Stillness and Reclaim Rest: Because we are fueled by a "get-more-done" mindset, constantly on a mission to achieve more, do more, get more the masculine energy is fed more than the feminine. But the divine feminine revels in being. Many of us don't take enough time to relax, to literally revel in the art of doing nothing. Sit in silence for five minutes and observe what comes up for you. Taking time to be one with yourself in each moment can help you connect to the sacred Feminine and divine light within.
5.) Live Your Values and Make Choices With Intention: The divine feminine energy wishes to “deepen into the fullness of existence,” which means she’s a seeker of growth, expansion, and new experiences. Invite yourself to push outside of your comfort zone. What can you do today that is new? How can you live with more integrity and make choices that honor your own soul’s deepest desires? What have you always wanted to do but have not given yourself permission to do? Making conscious choices to enjoy new experiences will not only help you feel more balanced and joyful, it will help you harness the true power of the Sacred Feminine.
6.) Practice Self-Love and Compassion: Self Love is misunderstood because it isn’t a state of being but rather a decision you make when you finally realize that anything you experience is a direct reflection of your relationship with yourself. The ultimate way to embrace the Sacred Feminine is to practice self-love and embrace yourself fully. Start with loving yourself as you are, not as you think you should be. One of the biggest components to self-love is self-compassion. The relationship we have with ourselves sets the tone for everything in our life. Learning how to see yourself in the eyes of source energy, God, is one of the best ways to live in the energy of the Sacred Feminine. Once we master this, we will feel free.
