We don’t think of our own evolution as part of changing for the sake of the greater good.
Shifting our thoughts, perspective, behaviors, values or anything else is hard and we tend to become very self-focused when undergoing difficult times. And these are certainly difficult times. But has there ever really been a time in history when everyone around the world is at peace and getting along? The answer is a hard “no”.
So, what is this point in history really about?
For years, I’ve worked with female clients who are healing from events that left them feeling diminished by others in one way or another. Women are working on finding their voice, their strength and they path as they become stronger, more assertive and less concerned for what others think. I tell them that every time a woman steps into her power she is contributing to the evolution of womankind. This is a powerful statement and one that is meant to be. I want the female clients with whom I work to understand that they are part of bringing back the divine feminine—participating in the feminine consciousness movement overall.
What does this mean for men?
It means that they have a duty and responsibility to evolve as well. I’ve also said for years that there is a greater purpose for men being men and women being women. In the grand scheme of things, men are here to teach women to be more assertive—to find their inner truth so they can speak and live it. Women are here to teach men to be more sensitive—to become more heart-centered, caring and open to their own emotions. We all know neither has been the case for a very long time. Masculine vs. feminine energy has long been out of balance.
It is both a right and privilege to be human, even though this human condition can really stink. But when you widen the lens enough to understand the bigger picture, we are all involved in evolution. Women who choose to stay quiet and submissive remain suppressed and miserable. Men who choose to stay dominant and aggressive are being left behind in one way or another.
