A List of Divine Feminine Qualities
Hopefully, having a solid understanding of the Divine Masculine will help you better understand the Divine Feminine. Now that you know what this energy is NOT, let’s talk about what IT IS.
To start, let’s turn to the dictionary.
Divine has many definitions, but the one that stands out is “supremely good, heavenly, Godlike”
Feminine also has several definitions, but this one seems the most appropriate: “the embodiment or conception of a timeless or idealized feminine nature.”
Let these two definitions roll around your head for just a moment…… remember, we are talking about the spiritual aspect of what it means to be human. Understanding the Divine Feminine is a tall order!
Here is a list of qualities that describe this sacred energy:
- Action is oriented to the experience of joy rather than an outcome
- Emotional strength
- Seeks self-mastery, but is more concerned with sacrificing for the greater good
- Extroverted, open
- Vulnerable, Nurturing
- Still, tranquil
- Wants to “be” rather than “do”
- Gentleness, sensitivity
- Defines success by relationships
- Concerned with creativity
- Makes decisions based on intuition
- Focused on emotional world and the inner being
Like the Divine Masculine, the Divine Feminine can also get out of harmony. When it does, these characteristics go to an extreme end of the spectrum.
If a man or woman does not properly channel their femininity, they can become codependent, overly emotional, irrational, sacrificial to one’s own detriment, disorganized, confused, and lost. This results in dysfunctional relationships, mental health issues like bipolar disorder, a constant feeling of burnout, a lack of productivity, a loss of self-worth, a “damsel in distress mentality,” and the inability to complete projects.
When expressed in its truest form, this energy goes with the flow, births new possibilities and ideas through creativity, promotes unconditional love, has beautiful and nurturing relationships, and provides a safe space for those who need to feel protected. We can associate this energy with the Virgin Mary, Mother Teresa, Isis, Shakti, and Gaia. All of these Divine Feminine archetypes embody this sacred energy.
