The Divine Feminine has gotten a lot of attention in recent years, and for good reason. Thousands of years under a patriarchal reign have left us lacking and one-sided, unable to tap into the feminine energy we all have within us, regardless of gender identity. We have seen the resurgence of the goddess and feminism. In the article crystals for feminine energy, the importance of balancing polarity in order to achieve wholeness is stressed.
In Eastern philosophy, this is referred to as Yin and Yang. Yin is considered to have feminine qualities and Yang is considered to have masculine qualities, and the goal is balancing both sides of these energies for optimum health of mind and body. In a more modern sense, it is the same concept as the left and right brain theory. The left brain is masculine and logical, and the right brain is feminine and creative.
