Have you ever felt so burned out that you just couldn’t get out of bed?

Or been so overwhelmed that you felt everything was caving in on you? 

It’s so easy to point the finger towards our careers, our families, financial stress and other external factors. But maybe it’s time to look inward and see if we’re giving our Inner Goddess time to shine.

Our Inner Goddess is gorgeous, divine, feminine energy. And she is powerful. She is creative, intuitive, connected and inspired. Have you ever just had an amazing A-HA moment where you come up with a new idea, and you just knew what to do? That’s your Inner Goddess.

But our masculine energy tends to run the show. Society prefers it that way. We’re rewarded for having busy schedules, SMART Goals, structure, driven by direction etc. And while tapping into our masculine energy helps us achieve and be logical, it can leave us feeling out of balance, burned out, stressed, and exhausted. Look around the people in your own life; how many of them are teetering on the edge of burnout?

I used to live in my masculine energy – I was career-driven, always working for the next promotion, 12 hours days were easy for me. There was a time where I worked in the office for 48 hours straight just because I wanted to achieve and be rewarded. I had SMART Goal after SMART goal. I was driven and structured.

After completely burning myself out and on the brink of a breakdown, I decided it was time for a change. Or a life overhaul. I started to allow my beautiful Inner Goddess to show up. And everything changed for the better.

Our feminine energy or Inner Goddess loves to tap into creativity, intuition, vulnerability and empathy. It’s our softer side. It gives us the feeling of being guided, supported and loved. Our Inner Goddess lets us tap into our Inner Wisdom, lets us feel a greater sense of harmony, peace and compassion. But she’s also a bit of a badass; having her inside gives you incredible power, confidence and self-worth.

Regardless of your gender, both energies are pulsing within you, and they influence us on a deep, emotional level. We need the duality of both to ensure balance, harmony and ease.

Unleash your Inner Goddess

Unleashing your inner goddess is a lost art, yet vitally important for our self-love and self- confidence. Spend time showing her some love, and you will reap the benefits tenfold. 

  1. Set goals based how you want to feel
    If you are a goal setter you’ve probably used the SMART method. But how often do you set goals based on how you want to feel?
    I used to set SMART goals based on what I thought was the right goal for me, but I never felt connected to the goal itself. It didn’t matter if I had vision boards, wrote myself cheques or visualised achieving every day. The SMART goal never landed with me.

    It wasn’t until I started thinking about how I wanted to feel, i.e. contentment, that I started to create goals that my Inner Goddess could get behind. So if I want to feel content, then I would set goals around what would give me contentment in different areas of my life.
  2. Personal rituals
    While our masculine energy loves routines, our feminine energy loves rituals. Create personal rituals that leave you feeling invigorated, refreshed and bursting full of love. Some of my favourite rituals include yoga, affirmations, tapping and meditation.
  1. Deep Healing
    We all have wounds, limiting beliefs and hurt that needs tending to. Our Inner Goddess wants to tend to those wounds and heal. Start by noticing where you are feeling limited in your life and ask what is holding you back. Delve deeper and see where that is coming from. Inner child wounds and limiting beliefs can be us stuck in a negative pattern. Your beautiful Inner Goddess would like you to be free. Spend time choosing more empowered beliefs, practicing Ho’oponopono, tapping or talking to a coach or counsellor.
  2. Tap into your intuition
    We all have the ability to tap into our intuition, but so few of us actually harness the power within. Our Inner Goddess is wise, she knows what’s up and she is just dying for us to be still and listen to her inner wisdom.

    Meditation, journaling, free writing and scripting are beautiful ways to allow your inner wisdom to spill out. Tarot is a great tool to help you connect deeper to your intuition and allow yourself to be guided more. 

Balancing both the Masculine and Feminine

Masculine energy is often viewed as bad and feminine energy seen as good. There is no good or bad. Everything in life asks for balance – light and dark, sun and moon, day and night, yin and yang.

When you embrace your masculine energy nurture qualities like leadership, action, adventure, logic, confidence, focus. We need these qualities in our careers and to help us to succeed. 

Our female energy on the other hand let’s us embrace qualities like intuition, creativity, compassion and understanding. We feel more expansive, open and supported.

Now I work with both my masculine and feminine energies. I allow my masculine energy to come to the surface if I have a big project or work that needs more structure.

Living from a space where my Inner Goddess is the dominant energy has created a lot more ease, harmony and peace in my life. With her in the driver seat, I have hit every goal I’ve set, including goals that you wouldn’t think were possible. I prioritise rest, self-care and living a life of joy. My life has completely changed for the better.
