A wound to the Divine Feminine aspect of yourself can manifest in many different ways.
For women, this wound can manifest as shame of feminine qualities such as menstruation, curvy figures and being emotional or sensitive. As men, this wound can manifest in the suppression of your feminine qualities such as sensitivity and intuition.
Because of the fact that the Divine Feminine was suppressed for so many years, it invariably caused a wound to the feminine aspects of ourselves.
We as a collective have done much to try and heal this wound over the last fifty or so years. Although there is, of course, still much that needs to be healed as far as the feminine is concerned. And we can start by healing this wound within ourselves first.
One of the feminine wounds to the aspects of being a woman is in the cycle of menstruation.
There’s still a weird stigma surrounding this subject and many men shy away from being around discussions about it. It is a completely natural thing that happens to every female animal on this planet. It’s the catalyst for women to become pregnant. It’s the catalyst, for life itself. There’s nothing to be ashamed of within that.
This is one of the many unfortunate side effects of having the feminine suppressed for so long.
One of the most natural and miraculous aspects of being a woman is now shunned and rejected. There has been a resurgence of red tents popping up which is very comforting. But the stigma still remains. This is a collective wound that needs to be healed on a deep level so that we can once again appreciate the sacred aspects of being a woman.
Another wound for women is, of course, having to do with body image.
I’ve never met another woman who wasn’t “dieting” or “watching her figure” at some point in her life. I myself am also guilty of this. It’s one thing to create a healthy lifestyle for yourself because you care about your health. It’s another thing to diet in order to look good for someone. There’s nothing inherently wrong with dieting itself. It’s the motive behind it that matters. If you’re doing it for you then great! But if you’re doing it for someone else, check in to see why.
It could lead you to a wound deep within yourself that is connected to feminine shame.
When we deny the feminine aspects of ourselves, we deny half of who we are. All of us are made up of feminine and masculine qualities. When we suppress either of these qualities, we suppress a part of ourselves. Finding a good way to balance these energies out will give you the best outcome.
For men, it seems that for most, the feminine wound can be found within sensitivity. Men are taught from a young age that they need to be strong and never show their sensitive side. If they do, they’ll be shamed for it. Boys who are shamed for their sensitive sides become adult men who aren’t in touch with their emotions. The same thing can happen for women of course. But for men, showing that you’re sensitive, equals being weak. At least that’s how society has taught us to view men who are in touch with their sensitive side. It takes a very strong person indeed to be in touch with your emotions and sensitivity. Even stronger to feel safe enough to express those emotions and feelings. There’s nothing at all weak about being sensitive and emotional. Being vulnerable is one of the greatest strengths anyone can have. At least in my opinion.
A wound to the Divine Feminine keeps us disconnected from the other half of Source energy. Source energy being “God” energy. God is both masculine and feminine. God and Goddess. To suppress your feminine side is to suppress part of spirit. We need both in order to be whole, completely balanced beings. To discover your feminine wound, ask yourself which feminine qualities you have that you’re ashamed of? Then sit in meditation and start the digging process to see why you’re ashamed of this quality. Dig until you find the root. You might find that this wound takes you all the way back to your childhood. Or that it takes you back to an old relationship. Follow wherever it leads you and then allow yourself to release that wound and let go. Remind yourself that you are lovable, whole and perfect just as you are and find your peace within.
