Women Are Yin Movement.
Women are born creators. Manifestations of divine white light and space. Intuitive energy that flows from heart. Women are yin movement.
We live in a society largely based on masculine energy or yang. Task lists, to-do’s and agendas are all ways male energy takes shape. This is modeled all over community, professions, and family structures. Women can easily lose the intuitive sense within this space.
Not to say that there’s anything wrong with yang energy. Not at all. It is a different side of the very same coin. Yet, I believe it takes more consciousness to live from yin.
I am a woman with a very modeled upbringing around career success. My mom worked for a large corporation for almost 30 years. She rose to the top and won countless awards. Part of my youth was spent in her home office. Not only was her professional communication sense and style downloaded into my DNA, it was modeled in front of my eyes.
It’s not a surprise that I have a natural knack for business. A drive for success and getting ahead. Yang.
Along with my professional sensibility is an intuition for getting things done. A natural knowingness for bringing people together at the right time and place. Yin.
In this case, the complimentary energies of intuition and task create an abundant alchemy. However, when there’s an imbalance in the energies, it’s usually my masculine side that goes into overdrive.
For an empath like me, running on yang for too long is a recipe for burnout. I’ve learned this through trial and error. When I’m imbalanced, it’s important to take stock and exercise self-care. The most important thing for me, I’ve found, is to focus on creating yin space. Ample time to wander free and clear, letting my heart guide the way.
Last year in Bali, I took my first all-women’s Yoga class. The teacher, a beautiful soul, taught from her heart. Encouraging us to follow our own flow. To follow our intuition and to find our pose in our own time.
I used to shy away from women’s circles and collectives. Maybe overwhelmed or intimidated by my fellow sisters. It was easier for me to befriend men. In that Yoga class, something shifted. The spirit of the collective feminine Om empowered me. Yin spoke to my soul.
Once back in the States, I bought the website yinmovement.com and set a goal of helping women to reclaim their Source-gifted intuitive power.
Put most simply, I feel yin is a way back — and in — to Self. Yin flows from our hearts. It is our true essence. The space of divine knowingness. Where intuitive creativity meets presence. Doing less and manifesting more.
Practically, when I rediscovered my yin energy, my life shifted. Actions became more spontaneous. Rather than planning ahead, I became much more present. Preferring last-minute decisions. Giving myself space to decide on the day of. This empowers me to stay present. Where intuitive energy guides me from heart. In the direction of wisdom, love, and grace. This is yin movement.
