The definition of “gender fluid” from urbandictionary.com is this:
“Gender Fluid is a gender identity best described as a dynamic mix of boy and girl. A person who is Gender Fluid may always feel like a mix of the two traditional genders, but may feel more boy some days, and more girl other days. Being Gender Fluid has nothing to do with which set of genitalia one has, nor their sexual orientation.”
It’s interesting to reflect upon how the roles of men and women have changed so much in the past 50 years and how we’ve been redefining what the two genders are all about. This questioning and seeking seems to be reflected in the myriad of gender and sexual orientations. If both men and women can truly do just about anything without their gender being a hindrance, then we can also be free to love whomever we want, however we want, and embrace femininity and masculinity as we so choose.
This questioning has also helped lead us to the realization that masculine principles have been dominating our culture (and so many other major cultures) for so long, it has created an unhealthy imbalance in the world. If you haven’t already noticed, take a look around and you’ll start seeing, hearing and feeling the divine feminine creeping back into our lives. According to hashtracking.com, just today on Twitter there were over 1,500 tweets with the hashtag #divinefeminine, exposing almost 300,000 people to the term. On Instagram today, there were over 200 “#divinefeminine posts reaching 300,000 people. Even the CostCo magazine is posting articles about looking inward, feeling connected and trusting your intuition! These are all very feminine traits. Red tents like the ones we host are popping up all over the world. They are a direct manifestation of women intentionally bringing more of the feminine into their lives.
The sacred feminine has been pent up for so long, the dam holding it back is beginning to burst. Soon, she will gush out and this planet is going to sound, look and feel a lot different. It’s an exciting time to be a woman on the planet and tapped into this zeitgeist of our time.
