Women in the Business Arena™ EP120: Stepping into the Divine, Mature Feminine & Why this Will Change Everything! (Part 2)
“When I am in my divine, mature feminine, I am grounded and confident with where I am right now.”
The journey to embracing your superpower.
Every woman is born with a superpower and a lot of women have forgotten how to access it.
It’s called the divine, mature feminine.
In our last episode, we began unpacking the reality of being a woman in a predominantly masculine world. Our greatest gifts as women have been largely ignored or diminished, especially in the business arena.
When you access the divine, mature feminine inside of you, it changes everything.
“There’s no good or bad. We all have both [energies]. But we sometimes have a default that our culture and environment rewards or punishes. As a result, we condition ourselves to fit into whatever we think is best for our survival.” - Laura Shook-Guzman (18:36- 18:53)
In business, government and virtually every aspect of life, the male lens has dominated perception and design. It has shaped the way we perceive ourselves as women.
In the ’50s, a woman would be medically diagnosed as “hysterical” when she would act unhappy with a situation. This is just one of the thousands of examples where women were encouraged to feel like something was wrong with them. So much of this energy still exists today.
There are two types of feminine energy.
The immature feminine energy is greatly focused on the external looks and others’ perception. It has a tendency to be catty and overutilize sexuality. The mature feminine energy, on the other hand, is greatly focused on the internal value with zero care for others’ perceptions. It showcases groundedness and self-confidence.
Maturity develops within a framework of time and space.
From our mother’s womb, we were birthed into this world. Childhood brings on the beginning stages of identification with the feminine. The personal experiences a small girl has with older women results in either a love or resistance to the feminine. Puberty hits and with it a deeper exploration. The very long process of maturity develops the ego (a masculine energy as discussed last week) but eventually moves towards the intuition - the true divine, mature feminine. This means less focus on external accomplishments and more on the internal. Simply put, a LOT of time devoted to feeling and being.
There are no pain-free short-cuts on the journey to the divine, mature feminine.
You can’t change your past. But you can take a look back and change your mindset for your present and future. You can reach an incredible state of knowing as you explore deeper into the divine, mature feminine. With that, you will also become hyper-aware of any pain surrounding past rejection of your feminine and how that has affected you. Are you willing to go deep and reconnect with who you truly are?
“It’s so important for us to create the space to develop… our inner self to maturity. To successfully do that we have to come through space and time. It cannot be done as a task on your to-do list. It has to be done with reverence and value.” - Sonya Stattmann (36:56 - 37:15)
Inner work can not be done as a task on your to-do list. It has to be done with reverence and value for that space and time.
The painful process of self-examination is the only way to start, progress, and reach the divine, mature feminine.
No more suppressing who you are. No more hiding your emotions.
It is time to step into your full and divine glory!
