This Shift in consciousness is deep. It is fundamental and it is happening from the inside out. It is changing how you think, how you perceive and what you believe. It will alter your perception of the world around you and, more importantly, it will change your relationship to absolutely everything that you know. It is very exciting. It is very expansive.
One of the things that I am aware of is that in the beginning the Creator said, “I wish to know myself to the farthest edge of the farthest edge so that I can understand myself.” In real terms the Creator was saying, “I wish to know myself in relationship to and with everything that is around me.” This is about relationship, your relationship to everything around you and how you perceive it from within you.
In the third dimension masculine energy and feminine energy are very much out of balance. Have you ever played a game where you did not know the rules of the game and yet you kept playing? Like the stock market, for example. How did you do? Most in the third dimension do not know the rules and they don’t know how to succeed or exit the game. Becoming aware of and understanding the rules and the structures of the third and fourth dimensions is a means to step out of the third dimension and choose to live in the higher third and fourth dimensions. Knowing the rules to the games we are playing is a really big deal. Most don’t even explore the rules, because they are too busy moving from past to future and they don’t spend a moment of conscious time in the present.
Relationship is the biggest game on the planet and most of us don’t know the rules. We therefore don’t know how to play successfully and with ease. You are in relationship to everything that surrounds you. How you perceive is very fundamental and affects your experience of your surroundings and of other people. Many of us understand relationship in a certain way because those outside of us have said, “Here are the rules; this is what you should do; this is how you should move through life. This is right/wrong; this is truth and this is not truth. We hang out with these people here, but we don’t talk to those people over there.” In other words, your relationship-to has been conditioned from childhood. The third dimension is conditional. In the third dimension, there is no such thing as “unconditional.” Unconditionality begins in present time, in the fourth dimension. Yes, we live in both the third and fourth dimensions simultaneously. And it is our conscious, or unconscious, choice to live in one or the other at any and every moment.
One of the most fundamental aspects, or “rules” of the relationship game is to understand masculine and feminine energy. I’m not talking about bodies, men and women, husband and wife, parent and child, or lovers. I refer to your nature and expression of personal masculine and feminine creative energy. Without understanding masculine and feminine energy, we can become very much out of balance.
Have you ever noticed that the masculine and feminine don’t quite communicate on the same wavelength? The masculine and feminine somehow seem to misconnect in this third dimensional reality. There is a very good reason for this. Let me illustrate the difference between masculine and feminine as simply as possible. I am going to use the concept of geometry. Don’t get scared by the word geometry. In a simple way, masculine energy is made up of straight lines and angles. Feminine energy is made up of curves and swirls. There are no straight lines and angles in feminine energy and there are no curves and swirls in masculine energy. Feminine energy is also very energized and fast. Masculine energy is slow and dull. If I would be simple, masculine energy holds about 40 points of energy and feminine energy holds about 140 points of energy. Feminine energy is very expansive, very creative, and very fluid. Feminine energy can do 25 things at one time while it swirls and curves. Masculine energy says ‘straight line’⎯ go down a straight line. Go from point A to point B to point C and back to point A. Both types of creative energy are absolutely valuable to have at your access for balanced creations.
However, masculine energy without feminine energy is not whole; it does not feel valued; it is not nurtured or appreciated. It feels incomplete. I am not talking about the men, and yet, yes, I am talking about the men. I am not talking about women, and I am talking about women as well. More importantly, I am talking about your personal masculine and feminine balance. Female energy without masculine energy is not whole; it feels unsupported; it is not focused; it is scattered and unstable; it is without purpose, and as a result it has no sense of success.
In the third dimension, when masculine energy is out of balance it may show up in several ways. Now, make what I am about to say very personal. See if you can apply it to your own creative energy. Please hear the words and also read between the lines. When the masculine energy feels as if it is not good enough, when it is in fear, when it has been told it will never succeed, it is not worth anything, and it has no value, it is off balance. To compensate, the masculine energy may demonstrate a false strength. It kind of puffs itself up and says, “I have these great ideas and these big dreams; I want to lead and create this. I know what I’m doing. Follow me.” That is all very real. And when a female who also is in fear and weak, is timid or withdrawn, finds this puffed up male it is a perfect match. In fact, the Law of Attraction gives each of them exactly what they are asking for. As it plays out, however, it will look like this.
If you would in your mind draw a straight line and then make an angled line moving off of that first line. (See the diagram at right.) The masculine energy leads; “Come with me. I know. I have this great dream. I am going to build this wonderful house for you in Toronto, Canada.” And the feminine energy says, “Oh, this is so wonderful. I also want a big house in Toronto.” The masculine and feminine start out together at the first point of the line and the masculine goes forth and the feminine, because feminine has curves and swirls, begins to create. She selects new paint, new drapes, and designs the landscaping. She is thrilled and satisfied that she will get to create her nest.
The masculine continues forward and then his habits of fear and self-doubt pop up. The masculine hesitates and becomes afraid of failing. “I don’t know what to do. Because I am told that I am hopeless. I am not going to succeed. I am not worth anything,” and the masculine doubts his ability and stops moving forward on building the big house. So the masculine has built 80% of the new home. He has traveled 80% down that blue line then says, “No, I think we should move to a tropical climate and it will be much nicer and we can have a house on the beach in Hawaii. I know what is best. Follow me to Hawaii.”
The feminine energy is out there swirling around in Toronto and must now stop creating. She is now incomplete. She isn’t able to complete her plans. The feminine energy says, “Oh, well, okay, a tropical beach would be nice. I would love a beach house in Hawaii. I love you and trust you.” And they move, but she is incomplete. He is also incomplete, but he begins to build the house in Hawaii. Again the feminine swirls and it curves and begins to have fun creating in Hawaii. She buys the bamboo flooring and plants the hibiscus flowers.
Again, 80% into the process, the off-balance “strong” masculine says: “Well, I think I need to change my job, which means we have to move to London. Come with me to London and we can have the beach house some other day.” Once again the female energy is incomplete. The masculine energy drives the game and the feminine energy begins to get frustrated and angry, and maybe even resentful. The feminine creativity is being dampened because she was very excited about the beach house. She was getting very creative because that is what feminine energy does. And so it continues and continues.
In part two we will discuss what happens when the feminine energy is strong and the masculine is weak, plus the other two possible configurations.
