The energy you use daily allows you to achieve your tasks. It allows you to do things like look after yourself, look after your family, get work done. Often we use so much of our energy we can get into bed at night and be exhausted - but we go back and do it all again.
A lot of us experience burnout in our lives, some of even multiple times. As said by Very Well Mind:
“The term “burnout” is a relatively new term, first coined in 1974 by Herbert Freudenberger, in his book, Burnout: The High Cost of High Achievement. He originally defined burnout as, “the extinction of motivation or incentive, especially where one's devotion to a cause or relationship fails to produce the desired results.”
For me, burnout comes when we don’t balance our energy. We don’t honour what we need and in the end, feel like we have failed. But, once we learn to work in alignment with our divine femine and masculine energy, it can help not only prevent burnout, but allows us to achieve our goals and live a life of true alignment.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how familiar are you with your divine feminine and divine masculine energy?
Based on the popularity of this topic and how to prevent burnout as you are creating your biz and life by design, I felt called to create this article with more detail about the divine energies with you.
Especially as I’m now a full time biz owner I can say how important it is to honor and welcome both energies.
What is divine feminine and divine masculine?
The feminine and masculine energy balance is the perfect way of describing two different behaviours. These behaviors have different attitudes that we all have access to regardless of being a male or female.
These are two different types of energy, which are powerful in helping us shape our life, especially when used in balance.
As we move through life, it is very common for us to be “out of balance” as we focus on one energy more than the other.

Gender: can we have both divine masculine and feminine energy?
We are all born with both divine feminine and divine masculine energies. We all have the potential to lean more towards one polarity or the other.
Our mind is well equipped to know the certain qualities of “masculine” (dominant) and “feminine” (caring). What shifts that ideal is knowing that these qualities are completely separate from the construct of our gender and that we all hold both qualities in ourselves.
We are talking about the universal energies, although associated with gender, I am not referring to the gender of a person. We are all born with two types of energies (the yin and yang), we all have the ability to lean more towards one than the other.
After over a decade coaching and working with clients, I have realised that no one can perfectly balance the two energies without doing the work and being self aware. We all present a dominance around one of the energies, more than the other. We go deeper into the energies in our blog “spirituality in business”.

Balancing the divine energies in your life and business
Balance is the underlying foundation of longevity in all things. This implies both internal balance between various aspects of ourselves (mind & body, persona & shadow...) and external balance between ourselves and the world around us (work & play, giving & receiving, socialising and being alone).
It is all about finding this equilibrium supports your life, business and relationships. Be conscious about the alignment with the energy within and around. This will bring abundance, ease & healing.
The ways to heal and strengthen the divine feminine energy - Shakti prana
For business owners and entrepreneurs, I find the balance of the feminine energy can be a struggle. Finding the flow, trusting and going with intuition can be a challenge when you have a lot of masculine energy flowing.
Here is what you can try:
Observe and connect to the shifting energies of the moon
Practise ceremony & connection with your senses
Smoke cleanse your space (with sage, incense or palo santo) then sit in meditation, dance/move, sing, journal, etc.
Rethink your approach to healing when you are unwell
Receive regular body work such as massage or acupuncture
Which practice are you going to implement into your daily ritual?

Be mindful when doing something: does it spark joy? How to bring joy and creativity into it?
This helps me stay grounded and mindful of the two types of energy I use throughout the day.
