010When we look at relationships with a need to understand how to bring in harmony, and what’s our part in it? Practicing boundaries and being responsible with our emotions, is still just a part of it. The key in all of life is to know who you are, by growing our sense of self we can better connect to self empowerment, or knowing what’s needed.
Within each person is both masculine and feminine qualities, however, with each person the balance of that percentage for both qualities will be different. Finding this balance creates strong personal power, because we begin to loose that inner conflict, and connect to inner harmony through this knowing of ourselves. Buying into and investing in ourselves is always time well spent… Personal growth, inner healing and forgiveness.
The sacred masculine is about action, doing, making things happen, the provider, the protector… He is spirit. The sacred feminine is about intuition, receptivity of the seer, gathering of knowledge, to perceive the environment around her… She is earth. When the masculine supports the feminine, by following the intuitive and fact gathering ideas. When the feminine supports the masculine, by allowing the provided space for the creation of it. Real personal power and inner harmony is when these two aspects come together in balance, first within ourselves, then with our partner. This inner harmony creates our outer harmony. So I will look at a situation, listen with my heart [or your gut feeling] for an idea to come through the intuition [the feminine], then from that idea I put it into action [the masculine]. If someone is asking me to do something for them, I will sleep on it, then give them an answer in the morning. Before I act I take some time to listen to what the intuition has to say, so from this the masculine is supporting the feminine by waiting for the intuitive response. This dance moves us away from inner conflict and connects us to the flow of our inner potential. In a relationship this creates strong bonds on many levels, and supports a win win.

Not so long ago there were natural rolls of the masculine and feminine and they were simple. Today, because of lust and unbalanced power we have distorted that natural order, and the dysfunction we’re seeing today is a result of that. Women raising kids, cooking meals and cleaning house should be seen as equal to men and their roll outside of the home. Some women are not good at domestic tasks, and are better suited for intellectual and spiritual pursuits. Still, there is a balance between the two, and it can be seen metaphysically or physically. In either case it is a simple path, and a great adventure in exploring how to fine-tune the self and uncover the gift that you are.

The stone Sphalerite balances both male and female aspects of the personality. When masculine qualities are in excess, it promotes the qualities of the feminine, back and forth as you find balance. It’s a gentle influence, you hardly know it’s happening. Although the people around you will begin to notice a difference in you.
Carrie the stone in your left pocket every day. If you need balance and it’s on your bedside table across town, it’s not going to help much.
Allow water to wash over the stone 2 to 3 minutes once every 2-3 weeks, to release any emotional garbage that becomes stored within the stone in frequency, to keep it clean and fresh.
