Masculine Energy vs. Feminine Energy Explained 

We live in a world of duality: black and white, day and night, left and right, masculine and feminine.

All exemples of duality are of energies that although very different, they complement each other. And masculine/feminine is no different.

Many people however have difficulty understanding what is exactly masculine and feminine energy. More specifically, which traits belong to which energy.

In this article we’ll tell you exactly what both energies are and how they complement each other.

What is Masculine Energy?

Masculine energy is a stable, rigid and predictable energy.

It’s the energy of doing, of setting goals and achieve them.

It is the energy that is praised in our modern society, because it is focused on doing and getting results from it.

Masculine energy creates structures, rules, and is a very logical energy based on the mind.

More characteristics include:

  • National thinking
  • On-going effort
  • Problem solving
  • Likes challenges
  • Wants respect and admiration
  • Independent
  • Provides for and protects the feminine

This is the energy of getting things done.

Masculine energy men want respect, and to be admired.

What is Feminine Energy?

Whilst masculine energy is rigid, feminine energy is flexible, flowing and dynamic.

Feminine energy is based on emotions and on the ebb and flow of life.

This energy is not predictable and its core is intuition, feeling things from the body and the heart, not the mind.

Feminine energy doesn’t follow any rules other than internal guidance from the heart. It wants to be free and live in joy.

More characteristics include:

  • Peaceful and calm
  • Nurturing
  • Follows creative inspiration
  • Empathic
  • Follows the healthy lead of the masculine
  • Prioritizes feelings
  • Loves to communicate
  • Receives from masculine energy

Feminine energy is not praised in modern society the same way as masculine, because it is focused on nurturing and feeling life, not on achieving goals and doing things.

But it’s a misunderstood energy many times, because the key to abundance and a fullfilling life is not to do things all the time, but to be also able to flow with life and receive with ease.

Feminine energy women want to feel safe and loved.

How these two energies influence themselves in relationships?

Many men are not fully embodying their masculine energy due to social conditioning, an overbearing masculinized mother, lack of healthy masculine role models, etc.

So they become very emasculated and embody feminine traits, not being able to provide and protect for his family, which brings all sorts of issues.

On the other hand, many women are not fully embodying their feminine energy also due to social conditioning, narcissistic mothers who groomed them to provide and protect instead of receiving, lack of a healthy masculine father, etc.

So they become very masculinized and embody masculine traits living in a survival mode and not knowing how to trust and receive from masculine energy, which also brings all sorts of issues.

When in reality, a healthy relationship is made of a man embodying his masculine energy fully and a woman embodying her feminine energy fully, and they complement each other.

True and healthy masculine energy loves to protect and provide for the feminine, and true and healthy feminine energy loves to receive from the masculine.

This is called a polarized relationship. When both parties are living from their true nature.

The masculine energy provides, protects and creates a safe container, the structure, and leads, so the feminine energy can thrive, feel safe and secure and nurture their life together.
