One key to a successful and fulfilling life is balancing
your masculine and feminine energies. If you take a look
at your typical day,Guest Posting you'll probably notice there are
times when you're very action oriented. At other times,
you'll notice you're not really doing much of anything, but

instead, you're simply being.

These two activities - doing and being - are the physical
expression of the masculine and feminine energies. These
terms have nothing to do with gender, and everyone,
whether you're male or female, is composed of both
energies.

Masculine energy is assertive and action oriented. It's
the energy you use to go out into the world and get things
done. You might also consider this your powerful energy.
It's focused, persistent and aggressive. This energy seeks
to penetrate the world and make things happen. We tend
to associate this energy with the personality or the ego.

Feminine energy is passive and vulnerable. It's the energy
you use when you attract, magnetize or allow thing into
your life. It's "be-ing" oriented rather than doing
oriented. When expressing this energy, we tend to reach
a deeper, more spiritual place. We tend to associate this
energy with the soul.

If you're like most people, you probably lean more
toward one or the other. In fact, our culture places a
premium on the masculine energy. Most of us are taught
that we should be doing, accomplishing and producing
something almost constantly.

We admire people who seem to get a lot done and
sometimes judge ourselves if we can't measure up to their
accomplishments.

The problem, of course, with doing and accomplishing so
much is we end up ignoring the opposite part of
ourselves - our soul, our spiritual essence.

When this happens, although we may be very successful
in the world, it's difficult to find a place of
fulfillment, satisfaction and contentment. No sooner do
we complete one task, then we're off to the next thing
without taking time to nurture our souls.

On the other hand, if you're more out of balance toward
the feminine energy, you may have trouble focusing and
following through on your ideas with action. In more
extreme cases, you may even have trouble handling the
challenges of the physical world, including making a
living and managing money effectively.

When you're in a state of accepting whatever the world
wants to throw your way, you may find your life being more
controlled by others than yourself.

As I mentioned in the first paragraph, one key to a
successful and fulfilling life is balancing these two
primary energies.

Watch for the next issue of "It's Your Life!" where I'll
give you some strategies for bringing these two energies
more into balance to create a life that's both materially
successful and spiritually fulfilling.

In the meantime, consider the following questions:

1. Do you tend to lean more toward expressing the masculine
energy, the feminine energy, or are you fairly balanced?
Over the next week, be aware of when you're expressing
either of these energies.

2. If you notice an imbalance, what problems or challenges
do you see as a result of this imbalance?
