Women grow in confidence when they draw upon their feminine wisdom.
So often in our world we tend to think of strength as a quality that arises from a place of firm determination and a will to succeed, no matter the cost. Even though we might want to think of a strong woman as being defined in this way, what really makes a woman confident is her capacity for listening to her true self and being able to call upon her feminine wisdom to any situation that may arise. A woman does not need to step into an assertive role or act like a man in order to be effective at what she does—she simply needs to get in touch with her insight and sense of compassion to truly demonstrate the depth of her strength.
Listening to the feminine side of ourselves might not seem easy at first. This type of energy is something that is often overlooked in many aspects of our everyday lives. If we can connect with this part of who we are, however, we will find an unlimited wellspring of strength available to us. Our capacity to tap into our intuition and listen to our inner guidance, to take into account the needs of those around us, and to view a situation with compassion and love are ways that we can show the world the true power that is part of our feminine nature. When we learn to integrate this source of strength into our daily tasks and decision-making, we will find that we can be more flexible and open to the things that happen around us, and more receptive to new ideas. Not only will we see the world in a different light, but we will truly start to realize the potential for this form of energy to empower ourselves and those around us.
As we cultivate our feminine energy we can redefine strength. By embracing our feminine power as something strong in its own right, we are able to use it with true assurance and determination, and draw upon what truly belongs to us.
