If you are a man reading this what does masculinity mean to you? I discussed this with some men recently. What I discovered was that there are some men who are confused with the world masculine and how it relates to them in our modern day world.
They think it's about power and dominance so they shy away from it.
They don't show up fully in their roles as fathers, lover, husband, partner, friend, or in their professional life.
It can be a confusing time for men and their place in society. Their roles as lovers, fathers, financial providers, worker, partner, friend.
Ultimately they don't want to show up as too powerful or dominate or seem too arrogant. So they disconnect with a part of them especially if they experience a sexual issue such as premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction.
Masculinity has many wonderful and powerful qualities associated with it. From leader, drive, inner power, confidence, strength, protector, and motivation to name a few.
MEN CELEBRATE WHO YOU ARE
Give yourself permission to be who you truly are and tap into all your powerful masculine qualities. They will be unique for you. Be proud of who you are, embrace and celebrate it.
Learn to show up in all aspects of you life in your powerful masculine energy - as a lover, leader, friend, father or husband.
Many of us forget that our true home here on Earth is our body. For within the body is an amazing landscape of beauty, space, wisdom and knowledge.
Yet, many fill their body with poison, pain, anger, jealously - it becomes something like a rubbish dump filled with unwanted things that seem impossible to ignore or leave behind.
When this happens - many disconnect from their bodies and their true home on this earth. For it's easier to forget and dissociate than to deal with the unwanted things dumped within.
So they search for things outside of them to make themselves better and whole again. Cars, jobs, relationships, holidays, food, However the pleasure is only short lived - because the space inside has not been tended to with love, compassion and understanding.
In way they live a life of poverty - the have material riches in the outside world. Yet within them is a world of poverty and hardship.
Does the above resonate with you? If so, you are not alone!
Today you are invited to pause. Just be. Close your eyes. Breath in. Just be. If there is pain within imagine sending out waves of love and light to it. If you experience anxiety just sit with it like you are sitting with an old friend who needs your compassion and love right now.
The more your tend to your inner world the more space you have within to experience the life you want. The more you will have direct access to the intelligence and wisdom of your mind and body. The rubbish dump will be transformed into a beautiful and open landscape of flow, love, wisdom, colour and hope.
You can stop searching outside of you and refocus on space within - your inherited home in this wonderful and beautiful world.
Love, peace and light
