We women, when we’re searching for a meaning to our lives or for the path of knowledge, always identify with one of four classic archetypes. Paulo Coelho
What is a Divine Feminine Archetype?
Sacred Divine Feminine qualities emerge more as women begin taking their rightful place with men in the world to balance the masculine energies ruling the world at this time.
Each of us, both men and women, carry within our psyche both Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine Archetype energies. We manifest these energies in our everyday activities. By consciously developing these qualities, we become more mature and balanced as men and women working together for a better world for all.
Men: I challenge you to become aware and integrate the feminine archetype qualities into your inner feminine or anima.
