“The secret to designing our lives from the creative center is to reestablish our connection not only to the feminine, but to the feminine-masculine alignment.
“We must recognize where we forgo the feminine and over-access the masculine mode of doing.
“We must honestly evaluate where we operate primarily on output and production, noting any tendencies to work until we are depleted, frustrated, exhausted, irritable, or even ill.
“And we need to recognize where we believe our sense of well-being depends on how much we accomplish or achieve rather than an inner state of harmony.
“In the presence of the stress to produce continually, the body tends to restrict, tensing muscles which reduce our energy flow. Fortunately by recognizing the effects of stress on well-being, we can consciously reverse the constriction pattern and instead replenish ourselves by intentionally receiving the feminine as breath, downtime, nourishment, and dream cultivation.
