Powerful Heart Counseling & Coaching is passionate about helping women step into their personal power.
There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman, being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” Steve Maraboli
Women are nurtures and tend to take on a ton of responsibilities without giving to themselves first. They give to everyone around them and at the end of the day there is nothing left for them. This can leave them feeling depleted and underappreciated.
Low self-worth and self-esteem can be barriers for women. When we operate from unworthiness we will seek out love externally with romantic partners, friends and family. The void can also lead to looking to other external vices such as sex, drugs, social media and binge watching Netflix in order to fill the void.
Women may struggle with understanding their feminine and masculine energies. Both female and male carry both energies. Sometimes as women we may lean towards more of the masculine energy in order to fit in with a man. This of course can lead to dissatisfaction in both parties. This can happen in the women’s work place or in romantic relationships. This creates being out of alignment within the women. Tapping into feminine energy doesn’t mean allowing yourself to be a doormat it is simply embracing the essence of who you are. Understanding these energies within yourself can not only allow you to have amazing relationships with others, it allows you to have one with yourself.
The different characteristics between Masculine and Feminine Energies
|Masculine Energy||Feminine Energy|
|External Focus||Internal Focus|
|Part Focus||Whole Focus|
|Results Orientated||Process Oriented|
|Hierarchical Structure||Flat Structure|
|Focus on Intent||Focus on Effect|
|Cause and Effect||Relationships|
|Linear Analysis||Systems Thinking|
|Bottom-line Oriented||Stakeholder Orientation|
In a nutshell the feminine energy is more heart felt versus analytical. Women may be afraid to be vulnerable (feminine) energy as she is afraid of showing weakness. So women will tend to be more dominant (masculine) energy in order to not show this side of her. The truth is there is a time and a place for vulnerability and it is okay to express emotions and allow yourself to express them. The more we don’t express ourselves the more of ourselves we lose.
Tap into your true essence as a women by understanding who you are and what your values are.
When a woman is feeling depleted, sad, and angry it is most likely that she is out of alignment with who she is. The majority of women I ask, “What do you really want?” The answer does not most often come easily and this seems to be the problem because they don’t know who they are. If we don’t know who we are how can we know what we want?
Untangle from unhealthy relationships
Toxic relationships are not always easy to untangle from and you may not even realize you are in one until after some time has passed. Maybe in the beginning it was everything you had dreamed it would be only later to discover it is leaving you more lonely and depleted than ever.
Sometimes partners may use the gaslight effect in order to gain control over the relationship and you. Gaslight is a form of psychological abuse in which you may start to doubt your own memory and perception. For example: the abuser may deny that an incident even occurred or that they said something abusive to you. The intention is to disorient you. The origin of the word Gas Light came from the 1983 play Gas Light and has been used in clinical and research literature.
If you are in an unhealthy or toxic relationship it is very important to seek out help as soon as possible.
