There are several times when the universe just conspires in our favour.
A couple of weeks ago when I was at the top of the Tor at Glastonbury I recorded a couple of videos in order to share the beautiful scenery with you as much as possible.
When I got back, I got the videos all edited and ready to go, so that I could share them over the next couple of weeks.
Now normally I don’t tend to plan my videos too far in advance, I like to go with my intuition as to what is the right thing to share. Having followed my intuition I’ve received many beautiful messages from women around the world letting me know that the video came at just the right time for something that was happening in her life and really helped.
So from the top of the Tor I followed my intuition again and this time it led me to share about something that has been a really important understanding for me – how to release masculine tension.
….then synchronicity struck again. I was delighted when I was talking to a friend last week and she said “you know I’ve been working on trying to release some of the tension in my body”…so I hope you will find this information valuable too.
So why is tension masculine?
As I share in the video, tension in the muscles in your body tends to happen for one of a couple of reasons.
The first reason is protection. Our bodies naturally tense up in order to protect ourselves…if we see anything coming towards us that could harm our body, we instinctively tense our muscles and contract. If you ever saw boys playing the game ‘who can punch each other in the stomach harder’ when they were younger, the way they prepared for the impact was to tense the stomach muscles, as it protects the organs inside from the punch.
The second reason is to ‘do’ something. In order to ‘do’ most things, our bodies need to tense and use the muscles in the body. In order to move, to lift things, even to keep warm! When we get cold our muscles tense and cause us to shiver in order to warm the body up.
Both doing and protection are both masculine traits…the feminine is more about being and allowing.
So why do I want to get rid of masculine tension?
Now, as we know, we all have both masculine and feminine inside us, so having an element of masculine tension isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a question of balance.
These days so many women spend so much time in their masculine in order to be successful in their careers that they have a disproportionate amount of masculine tension in their bodies.
When we have too much of this masculine tension in our bodies, we can end up feeling drained, so it’s important to know how to release it when we can feel it.
So today I’m sharing with you a couple of tips for how to release masculine tension from the top of a very windy Tor! (apologies for the dips in sound)…
So will you now release your masculine tension?
So where do we tend to feel and notice this masculine tension?
The simple answer is that it can be in any part of our bodies but there are a few ‘usual suspects’ to look out for.
We tend to feel this tension primarily in our stomachs, backs, necks and shoulders. We can also notice it appearing in the form of headaches and tension in our foreheads and temples.
So if you notice any of this tension creeping in then I invite you to try out the suggestions in the video to release it and let it go.
