ARE YOU BEING TESTED BY THE YANG MASCULINE? ARE YOU PASSING?
The world has long been seen as either Yang/Masculine, or Yin/Feminine. This goes beyond the sexes and sexuality and is based on Eastern thought. Yang energy is about being assertive (which can be aggressive or even violent), pro-active, “doing”, giving (which encompasses generosity, although not always perfectly), boundaries (which can become territoriality), focus, will (which in excess can become self-centeredness), strength, etc.
Yin energy is about being receptive (which might become a doormat in excess), allowing, no agendas or plans, no boundaries, no will (perhaps to the point of wishy-washiness), quiet, gentleness, harmoniousness and “being.”
Much of the focus energetically over the last several years has been on bringing balance to the Yang/Masculine and Yin/Feminine aspects of all things...from the inner most parts of oneself to all levels of society. However, beginning in the energetics of 2012, although it wasn't obvious yet in the 3D, there has been movement to further bring balance and in 2016 we began speaking to you about further balancing these aspects in a more comprehensive way. This is the Yang/Feminine or strong Female balancing with the Yin/Masculine or the receptive Male.
This is obvious in your society at large but we ask you to notice how this is manifesting in your personal 3D life, for “As above, so below,” as in the macrocosm, so in the microcosm. This year is about very masculine energies. The element for this year is Fire and it is the year of the Rooster (a loud, territorial, and sometimes mean animal). You have witnessed the bringing of this masculine element forward in the recent elections with the fear-mongering, biases about minorities and women, and general mean-spiritedness. This seems to have given some people “permission” to further act this way, since they no longer want to live under the constraint of being “politically correct.”
In personal lives there seems to be a mirror of this, with sudden onset of hurtful or violent events that require a response from those affected—no wishing it away, no delegating, no pretending it isn't there. These are tests of the Spirit. We can either respond in kind with more meanness, violence, and intimidation, or we can recognize these events for what they are and respond as the Yin/Masculine. This gives us a chance to step into this New Paradigm in our actions, not just our thoughts and words. If we respond in kind, things go from bad to worse and we become embroiled in even more problems. If we are able to step into the New Paradigm of Yang/Feminine and Yin/Masculine, the issue seems to very quickly and more easily resolve, sometimes almost as suddenly as it arose.
Some examples that have come to my attention recently: 1) a traffic stop for speeding with a false accusation of hitting the officer with ensuing violence by the office and being taken to jail. When this person held his ground, got appropriate legal assistance and held his emotions in check, the charges and the ticket evaporated. 2) Pottying one's small dog on a leash in the front yard and being attacked by a large, off-leash neighbor dog, severely traumatizing the leashed dog and its owner and requiring surgery and extensive medical care. However with police reports, court claims and medical care, this has resolved. (This one didn't resolve so quickly, but the early likelihood of the little dog's demise resolved fairly easily considering the injuries.) 3) Being suddenly and inconveniently pressured by one's neighbor to sign off on an easement so they can close on a house sale, and standing one's ground, engaging one's own lawyer and finding they are trying to trick you into giving up the easement so that you would no longer have access to your own house. A simple polite but firm letter from the lawyer made it go away.
Any of these could have escalated with words, fists or even guns. They were all stressful, inconvenient and disruptive, but true Tests from Spirit are. When we live at the ends of the spectrum of either Yang or Yin, there is a great deal of disruption. On the Masculine end, there is control, territoriality, intimidation, and aggression; on the Feminine end there is chaos because there are no boundaries, no focus, no will or intention, and total allowing so that “anything goes.”
There are some movements afoot to give the masculine aspects of society or our personalities the “heave-ho,” as though they only are to blame for where society is today. At one point in our history long, long ago, the Feminine was in ascendance and got to the point that they didn't adequately appreciate the Masculine, and there was an uprising (which gave rise to the more recent male-dominated paradigm. We see the same thing happening in our society now, because parts of our society didn't feel adequately heard, seen and cared about. This is a huge lesson and a moment for the pendulum to swing back but potentially not to such an extreme.
For this to happen the Strong Feminine needs to forgive and embrace the helpful, positive, Yin/Masculine traits, thus bringing them into the fold. With focus, healthy boundaries, intention, a plan of action, generosity and a willingness to show up, the Receptive Male aspects can be a good partner for the Strong Female traits of tolerance, flexibility, inner stillness, creativity, and allowing.
Where in your life can you further balance the Yin and Yang, while completely honoring both sides of that equation? What can you change in your life in terms of relationships, work situations, or even self-talk so that you not only bring better balance to yourself but also to your sphere of influence? Doing this on your local level is how we make changes at the national level. This is how we make change. This is how we help All to Ascend with Grace and Ease.
