Understanding yourself by ways of your Inner Child, Feminine and Masculine
Your inner child is a part of you no what age you are. This aspect of yourself, developed in your younger years relates to your safety and security in the world. Your confidence to trust and feel safe. It’s the way you relate to the world in a playful, joyful, fearless way. It relates to you as an adult with “how” you are relating and interacting in your daily life, including patterns and beliefs, actions and attitudes. It’s how feel about show up in the world.
Let’s begin by look at signs your inner child is not having his or her needs met. There is constant turmoil or drama. There may be a lack of feeling secure, creating security or a feeling of fear, always needing to create and find security. The pendulum swings both ways. The first step is to see how your inner child is showing up in your life.
Feminine energy is nurturing, loving, creative, expressive, grounded. It can be motherly and womanly, To really fully connect into your feminine, one must be trusting of their inner voice, intuition and deep inner knowing. These are powerful actions, coming from your inner self to restore peace, balance and harmony. Taking time alone, opening your senses with essential oils, incense, candles, flowers, soft music, meditation and inner silence brings feminine energy to a place of grounding. This is where dreams, thoughts, ideas and visions are created.
Masculine energy is productive, action oriented. It’s the daily structure for accomplishing tasks. Masculine energy goes out into the world and takes action. It can be fatherly or manly. To fully embrace this power, one must have a goal or desire and willing to take action steps in alignment with that goal. Masculine energy is for the common good of all, generous and strong with faith and confidence.
All three aspects of yourself are constantly interacting in your world at the same time. You need your inner childs’ zest for life, fearlessness and boldness to take action out in the world in masculine energy. When this is out of alignment, masculine energy shows up as greed, power, control. Your inner childs’ trusting and knowing, discernment and safety are needed for your feminine energy to feel and express love, dream and believe, and trust. When feminine energy is out of alignment it shows up as helpless, victim, blame.
When the needs of your inner child are not met they will show up in your outer world as chaos, fear, survival. This interrupts the dynamics in your feminine and masculine energy. On a daily basis your operating “to get” the needs of your inner child met becomes how you interact. Your masculine energy may feel powerless or overly powerful, controlling or unassertive, greedy or indifferent. Your feminine energy may feel over stimulated or exhausted, not trusting or overly trusting, needing distractions to feel loved or shut down from love.
In order to find peace in your inner child and restore your feminine and masculine energy you’ll need to plant the right roots, meaning support, community, people who will provide the skills, resources you need to nourish, nurture and grow. I believe most people’s inner child have such a strong passion for living and creating. Influential people in your life at a young age or early adulthood may have constantly be looking at fear or problems rather than building and focusing on dreams. This creates instability and uncertainty in your inner child because it’s not the place they feel safe in, they feel safest and create from a place of visionary and dreaming. Here begins the path of turmoil.
Know your inner child, what they desire, what they need and what’s important to them. Become intimate with your feminine energy. As you connect deeper and fuller into yourself you will receive answers, then trust your intuition. Take action as appropriate, this gives your masculine energy a sense of purpose. Be in the stillness of yourself, take time to nourish, nurture and feel your sacred space. Sacred space meaning your energy, your feelings, your emotions, and what is yours. What brings you joy, what brings you pleasure, trust in yourself. Your masculine energy makes decisions and choices in alignment with your truth, your personal power, to be more of you. These 3 energies will dance around, moving, flowing, creating, inspiring, providing. Engaging in the flow of them, with constant attention to the growth, support and nurturing they need. As you restore your connections from the inside out, with strong roots creating a foundation for your inner child, your world will change to more than you could have dreamed of.
Thank you inner child for keeping their dreams alive.
