What Is Dark Feminine Energy?

When we think about women, isn’t that we often picture a warm, nurturing energy? Society also tends to applaud and portray these qualities as the ideal. These images of women often receive praise and are portrayed as the epitome of goodness.

However, have you ever wondered why, despite being a kind and caring person, you sometimes feel powerless? You may find yourself consistently taking care of others, being soft and giving, yet experiencing moments of being walked over or taken advantage of. It might be because you’ve mainly tapped into one side of feminine energy. To become a well-rounded woman, it’s essential to embrace both the light and dark aspects.

So, what exactly is dark feminine energy?

The concept of dark feminine energy has become a big trend on social media lately. If the light feminine energy encompasses traits such as being soft, kind, and nurturing, the dark feminine energy is often described as quietly powerful. It involves upholding your boundaries and standards, prioritizing yourself first – characteristics that can occasionally be misconstrued as manipulative.

In this post, I aim to clarify what dark feminine energy truly entails, dispel common misunderstandings between dark feminine energy and manipulation or selfishness, and provide practical tips on how to activate and benefit from it.

So, let’s get started!

How to feel confident in your body

I love movies, yet at times, I’ve come to realize that my lack of confidence in my body may be linked to that favourite of mine which is how the way thin bodies are depicted in the media. We easily found thin bodies are often promoted as ideal, portrayed as main characters. In contrast, images or portrayals of overweight and obese characters often carry stigma, further reinforcing the thin ideal. An analysis of television programs indeed shows that obese persons are under-represented, and thin persons are over-represented. And I think this is somehow responsible for nearly 80% of Americans feeling dissatisfied with how their bodies look (https://www.ipsos.com/en-us/news-polls/most-americans-experience-feeling-dissatisfied-with-body-looks-from-time-to-time).

This is such a shocking number, right?

So, if you’ve ever felt unhappy with the way your body looks, know that you aren’t alone. That’s why I think this post is very important, especially for women who I see often being the target of attacks based on looks and appearance. This is also a sensitive topic for me as I spent a large amount of time in my 20s battling with my body image, and today I think I’m confident and experienced enough for me to be able to talk about it and share with you how to feel confident in your body. So, grab your tea girl and let’s get into it.

Journal prompts about self love

We have been through all the “why “you should start a journal asap in previous post. As many marriage and family therapists have pointed out, everyone has occasionally experienced the feelings of “not being good enough” in life. I believe this is a widespread issue that deserves attention.

It cannot be achieved instantly just by taking a course, listening to a podcast, or reading a book. To truly love yourself, it’s necessary to consistently remind and reinforce those positive beliefs. And one very effective way to do this is through journaling.

In this post, I want to provide you with my list of inspiring journal prompts about self-love, organized into different categories suitable for various purposes you may be pursuing.

Some thoughts for you when you feel you’re not good enough

when you feel you’re not good enough: a woman is checking herself in the mirror

I came across an article about psychology in which Becky White, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, stated that “everyone feels the ” feeling like you are not good enough” , at times, and that someone else is probably feeling the exact same way as you, right now, in this moment.” This just hits home for me. Feeling like I’m not good enough or will ever be is something that I am always fighting off in my life.

When I was a heavier girl, that feeling was like a constant battle; it was so hard for me to love myself. I thought I would be able to love myself when I shed all the extra pounds, but as you may guess, that feeling remained mostly the same even when I was smaller. So, I figured maybe this feeling is something runs deeper and requires inner work.

In this post, I want to share some thoughts and knowledge I have gathered in relation to “when you feel you’re not good enough”. I hope you find it interesting, and any discussion or opinion from you is welcomed.
