Question…as a woman, have you ever felt that you needed to be more masculine in order to be valued and respected in today’s world? I know I did. However, after a decade of listening to men, I learned that the truth is quite different. Since our natural essence and biology is feminine, that is where our authentic power lies. Men absolutely understand this truth. The reason we don’t feel fully valued when we operate in our masculine energy is because we are pretending to be something we are not. We are being fake. Men in particular see through this facade and it diminishes their attraction for and adoration of us. In other words, it dampens and cools their fire energy and they lose drive and motivation to do for us.
If a woman really wants to be honored and respected, it’s imperative that she come from her natural energy, which is feminine. I never had any idea how much men valued our femininity until I started doing research for my book. I also discovered that our modern culture promotes the misguided notion that femininity is “weak”. To be clear, femininity is not weak. That’s a culturally constructed myth. Authentic femininity is powerful beyond measure. It may sound like an oxymoron, but there is undeniable power in our radiance, charm, warmth, and mystery. Just ask any man. Without femininity, they would never have been inspired to build our great civilizations.
“If there hadn’t been women we’d still be squatting in a cave eating raw meat, because we made civilization in order to impress our girlfriends.” – Orson Welles
A good man would move mountains or if need be, swim shark infested waters, for the woman he loves. He would literally die for her. That is the power and the glory of our femininity.
