How To Balance Your Feminine and Masculine Energies
A unique combination of fiction and self-development, this book invites the reader to enter a realm of modern and fantasy tales that stimulate both mind and feelings. Each tale addresses different aspects of the feminine and masculine energies that exist beyond gender and sexual identity in each one of us. At the end of each story is a psychological commentary that provides a deeper understanding of the chapter's subject and an exercise to begin the process of integrating the energies highlighted in the chapter.
Dr. Judith Bach (co-author of How To Play Nice Together) and Nanette Hucknall (author of Karma, Destiny, and Your Career and Higher Self Yoga) have done it again. Another great book—this one co-authored by the two of them, producing an unusual literary design of self-help hints and story-telling that makes for absorbing reading! The stories reflect the principles not just as parables but as compelling tales and enjoyable reading in themselves.
Four archetypal characters appear throughout the book: two represent the positive feminine and masculine energies, and two represent the negative feminine and masculine energies. These heroines and heroes face bright visions of dazzling beauty and dark views of the abyss while discovering other worlds that overlay the mundane.
The popular ideal of finding one’s “soul mate” in a partner stems from the relationship between the two basic energies that exist, beyond gender and sexual identity, in each of us. When these two energies are equally developed, the individual is richly endowed with inspiration and intuition, as well as the ability to express these riches in the world. This book shows the reader how to develop that mix.
