Strength In Softness: Celebrating the Divine Feminine Within

Jun 03, 2024

This month we are celebrating the divine feminine within. This has been on my mind a lot recently, my 30’s has been a decade of self-discovery and one of those is that my femininity is a source of great joy and inner strength. It’s previously a side of myself  I suppressed, as if I'm totally honest, I think I considered that side of myself weaker, overly emotional and sensitive. What I didn’t realise is some of the qualities I buried were in fact sources of incredible beauty and strength.


As women, we're bombarded with messages telling us to be tough, independent, and unyielding, think all the adverts telling you, you can do anything on your period, yeah you can, you're amazing but would you want to run a 10k at 2am probably not, but I digress... In fact there's immense power in embracing our softer more feminine qualities of intuition, empathy, compassion, and vulnerability.



Being soft doesn't mean being weak, tapping into our divine feminine nature can empower us to live more authentically and joyfully.



Strength in Softness:


In a world that glorifies strength as stoicism and resilience as hardness, it's easy to overlook the quiet power of softness. But there's extraordinary strength in the ability to be gentle, nurturing, and empathetic.


When we extend forgiveness, we're not showing weakness; we're demonstrating the incredible strength it takes to let go of resentment and choose love instead. When we prioritise the well-being of others and offer a shoulder to lean on, we're not being codependent; we're embodying the resilience of the human spirit and the beauty of interconnectedness.


So let’s dive into these superpowers in a little more depth


The Intuitive Superpower:


As women, we're have a deep connection to our intuition – a deep inner knowing that guides us on our journey. Our intuition acts as a compass, helping us navigate through uncertainty and guiding us towards paths aligned with our highest good. When we trust our intuition, we tap into a wellspring of wisdom that empowers us to make decisions with clarity and confidence.


The Empathetic Superpower:


Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. When we embrace empathy, we open ourselves to the experiences of those around us, offering a safe space for vulnerability and authenticity. Our empathetic presence, offers solace to the wounded, validation to the unheard, and compassion to the misunderstood. In our empathy, we find the power to bridge divides, heal wounds, and foster understanding. In our ability to feel deeply lies the power to uplift those around us.


The Forgiving Superpower:


When we choose to forgive – whether it's forgiving ourselves or extending forgiveness to others – we release the heavy burden of resentment and open our hearts to healing and transformation. In forgiveness, we find liberation and peace, allowing us to move forward with lightness and joy.


The Nurturing Superpower:


Whether we're caring for our children, supporting our friends, or tending to the needs of our communities, our ability to nurture creates ripples of love and kindness that spread far and wide. Through our nurturing presence, we offer solace, comfort, and encouragement, nurturing the seeds of growth and resilience in those around us.


The Connecting Superpower:


As women, we possess an innate gift for forming deep and meaningful connections with others. Whether it's through shared experiences, heartfelt conversations, or acts of kindness, our ability to connect bridges the gaps between us and fosters a sense of belonging and unity. In our connections, we find strength, support, and the unwavering knowledge that we are never alone in this journey of life.


Affirmations to Embrace Your Divine Feminine:


"I embrace my softness as a source of strength and power."

"My ability to nurture and empathise is a gift that I cherish."

"I release the need to conform and honour my feminine power”

"I am grounded in my authenticity and radiate love and compassion."


Journal Prompts to Cultivate Your Divine Feminine:


Reflect on a time when you felt deeply connected to your intuition. What insights did you gain from listening to your inner voice?


Think about a woman in your life who embodies qualities of softness and strength. How does she inspire you, and how can you embody those qualities in your own life?


Explore moments when you've practiced forgiveness or empathy towards yourself or others. How did these experiences shape your understanding of strength and resilience?


Consider areas of your life where you may be resisting your feminine nature due to societal expectations or internalised beliefs. How can you lean into softness and vulnerability in those areas?




Let's celebrate the beauty and strength of our divine feminine nature. By embracing our softness, we not only honour ourselves but also create space for deeper connections, greater empathy, and boundless love. So let's release the idea that softness equals weakness and instead embrace it as a source of empowerment and authenticity. Together, let's shine our light brightly and show the world the incredible strength found in softness.
