What is it? (top)
Feminine Creative Power and Creativity is about accessing and understanding our creative power to bring a creation into existence and nurture its growth and unfoldment.
Feminine creative power is not what most of us think it is. Most have confused what it means to be female with the feminine aspect of the creative process. In doing so we lose the understanding of the role the feminine plays in the creative process. Consequently most never have access the full creative power available to each of us through the feminine.
Although the female functions in the feminine role for the procreation of the human species, being female is not what the feminine creative role is about. The feminine aspect is in both males and females and both males and females need to surrender and step into the feminine role if they are going to manifest the creation they desire. Because the female does perform the feminine role for the procreation of children, she is naturally more inclined and intuitively knowledgeable of the feminine role in the creative process that the male. However, this naturally enhances starting point for the female does not mean that any one female will have a better understanding and ability to consciously use it feminine power than any given male
The origins of the Creating Feminine Power understanding the is discussed in the two topics, "Origins of the feminine power of creation/Creation understanding" and "Origins and occasion for creating Feminine Creative Power"
Why understanding feminine power is important (top)
Feminine power arises from two things. One is that it is the feminine aspect of being which allows for and nurtures the manifestation of the desired creation. The second is the feminine can call forth from, or awaken in, the masculine deep aspects of the masculine which the masculine does not know exists within itself. In calling forth or awakening these aspects, she excites the masculine to act to cause creation to occur. It is the feminine which calls forth the masculine into action.
Any unfolding creation has a masculine aspect and a feminine aspect. The masculine aspect is what causes a creation to come into existence. The feminine aspect is what nurtures and sustains a creation. Without the participation of the feminine in some way, creation cannot happen and any existing creation will shrivel up and die.
Whether we realize it or not, as a human being we each are an unfolding creation. Within each of us is a inner masculine aspect and an inner feminine aspect. If the inner feminine is not properly understood and nourished in the way in which she needs to be nourished, we will not have the creative power and creative passion to create what our creative spirit desires to create. We will not have the creative power to create the experiences we desire to have let alone create health, satisfaction with life, and/or a life worth living. Rather, we will seem to be powerless to control what we experience in life. Many will some how see ourselves as a victim control by others or forces external to us.
Realizing there is a masculine aspect and a feminine aspect with each male and female, one is probably not surprised to know that a female, through the feminine aspect of her being, can excite the inner masculine in a male or female to thrust out to act in the world. However, it is entirely possible for a male to become more creatively feminine that a female to call forth aspect of the female’s inner masculine that she does not know exists within herself to cause her to thrust out into the world.
Relative to a male becoming more creatively feminine than a female and a female thrusting out from her truth, each of these are respectively required for the inner feminine within the male to mature and the inner masculine within the female to mature. Without the maturity of the inner masculine and inner feminine, the door will never be open for one to feel wholeness within their being, experience the oneness to Creation and fully reveal and bring their charisma into the world. .
In regards to awakening or calling forth unseen aspect within an individual, feminine creative power is also about bridging the seen and unseen worlds. It is through feeling the nurturing supportive flow of energy which sustains creation/Creation that one can call forth aspect of the unseen realms of creation/Creation..
Intention of this website (top)
The intention of this website is to provide free of charge an understanding to access our feminine power and to have a conscious experience of the source of our creative power through the feminine. It is to increase the probability of the Ultimate Accident and a conscious experience of the Source of Creation.
The issue we face (top)
The issue we face as a human being and as an unfolding creation is that living life is to enter the unknown. Any creative endeavor, including living life, takes us into the unknown. To create by its very definition is to bring into existence something not previously seen and/or experienced or it is significantly different than the past. Our mind however, only knows the past and what we have experienced. So it is of little use in guiding us in the unknown.
Rather, we need a different method and approach to navigate into, and through, the unknown. What this means is that if we follow our mind, we will simply be recreating the past in a different way. If we want to be free of the past to experience something different, we need to learn to somehow step out of mind. But if we are to step out of mind, how can we find our way?
The answer lies in feminine creative power and the feminine aspect of our being.. The feminine aspect of our being is what is nourishing and sustaining our life. By learning to align with the flow of energy that sustains our life we optimize the creative power available to us to create what we desire to create and to guide us through the unknown. .
Creative ability is about knowing what to and when to do it to manifest a new creation. Our creative ability is determined by many things. In particular it is determined by what our mind knows and understands about the creative process and manifesting any creative endeavor. Key to our creative ability is to know mind is of little value in a truly creative endeavor for it only knows the past. But its understanding of the creative process is essential to create in the fastest easiest and gentlest way. In understanding the creative process it will know when to properly and constructively allow mind to step in and act or step in to intervene to change the process.
The second part of our creativity is about our creative power. It is about knowing how to access the energy, passion and enthusiasm to act and to do what needs to be done to manifest a new creation and sustain that energy and passion through the duration of the creative endeavor. It is about knowing how to access and follow the flow of energy that is will give rise to the creation we desire to experience and not get lost as we move through the unknown.
The masculine aspect is what causes a creation to come into existence. As a human being and as an unfolding creation, the masculine aspect is symbolized by our mind and how we choose to direct our energy and act in the world. But, as a human being, this masculine aspect has two parts. One part of the masculine aspect of our life is reflected in what we think and believe and what we chose to do, and not do, in life.
The second part of the masculine aspect of a human being is a little more difficult to understand and/or accept. It is related to what caused us to come into existence and, as we can come to experience, arises from our transcendental mind. That is, there is an intention for our life or a purpose for us being here. But it is not something that our current mind can know or understand for it existed before our current mind became aware of itself. Rather, it is something we feel by what causes us to feel alive, to feel full of life and/or to have a passion for life and for living. It acts an undercurrent in our life pushing or pulling us toward certain types and kinds of experiences.
Our current mind, or our mind as we now it, came into existence based on the experiences we have had in this life. But the intention for our life is what brought us into existence and what gave us life. Who or what created this intention for our life really doesn’t matter. What matters is that it exists and we can feel it and to access that feeling is to access our feminine creative power. The flow of energy that is animating our life and nourishing and sustaining our life is the feminine complement to the masculine aspect that created our life. In knowing and becoming intimate with this feminine aspect, we can know and become intimate with the its complementary masculine aspect.
The feminine aspect is what nurtures and sustains any creation. As a human being it is what is symbolized by our heart. It is reflected in what we feel within our being and our body. In this regard, there is an awareness in what we feel. The awareness in what we feel tells us where the energy we feel both comes from and where it is leading us if we choose to follow it. But to access this information, we must first come to an awareness of what we feel. To become aware of what we feel, we need to somehow step out of mind and be open to feeling and surrendering to what we feel.
One of the dances of creation/Creation is the dance of the masculine and the feminine. From the perspective of wholeness, the masculine creates and illusion of separation by thrusting outward only to surrender to the feminine to reunite in oneness and wholeness. The feminine act is to nurture the desired creation of the masculine and bring it into being. Yet, the masculine and feminine are never really separate. It is only the illusion of separation to experience a desired creation. This phenomenon is diagramed in the topic, "Observer - observed pair and the nature of duality."
From a more human perspective, the masculine act is for mind to desire. In desiring what it does not have it sees itself as separate from what desires. In creating the separation from what it desires mind must then trust the creative process and surrender to the heart and the flow of energy life energy that will manifest and sustain the desires creation. We surrender to the heart and the flow of energy through the use of feeling and using our internal compass to keep us aligned with the flow of energy manifesting our desired creation. In this regard, the dance of the masculine and feminine becomes the dance between mind and heart in the human being and the dance between what we think and what we feel. Yet, here again, there is an illusion that we are separate from what we desire. It is the desire which maintains the awareness of the connection we have with what we desire.
Relative to feeling and accessing our creative power, there are two primary feelings we will need to discern and access. One is the feeling the intention for our life. It is what gives us a passion for life and for living. It is what makes us feel alive and gives us an enthusiasm for living life. When aligned with the intention for our life the more energized we are in all that we do. The more we are out of alignment with the intention for our life the more dissatisfaction we experience with life if not depression and/or illness.
The second feeling we need to discern and access is the feeling of the flow of energy that will give rise to the creation we desire to experience. Depending on what we are desiring to create the intention for our life may or may not be aligned with what our current mind desires to create. The more they are not aligned the greater the feeling of separation if not pain. That is, of course, unless we numb, suppress or otherwise some how divert our attention form the separation. Nevertheless, in doing so, we still rob ourselves of our creative power and usually in these cases, we cannot understand why we cannot create what we desire.
Why the need to explore feminine creative power? (top)
Any creation, and any experience in Creation, is the result of the flow of energy. This flow of energy is created by tension between the masculine and feminine aspects of Creation. The masculine aspect give rise to a creation. But it is the feminine aspect of Creation that provides the fertile space for a creation to unfold and it is what nurtures and sustains any creation, an experience of a creation or an experience in Creation. Without the nurturing feminine creative energy any creation will die. In a way analogous to the way a mother carries and nurtures the fetus within the womb and cares and nourishes the child after it is born with her milk, it is the feminine aspect of Creation which nurtures and sustains any Creation. To nurture our desired creation we needs to surrender to the flow of energy and follow the lead of the feminine (More on .....the creative process)
As an unfolding creation, each of us have within our being an inner masculine and an inner feminine aspect. Understanding how the feminine creative aspect functions in the creative process and learning its dance with the masculine aspect is essential to creating what we desire and sustaining it in our lives.
It is feminine power within which gives a true source of happiness, fulfillment and inner satisfaction. When our needs are properly nourished and met, we are fulfilled. It is the feminine which embodies the flow of energy which nourishes our true needs which we experiences as inner happiness, joy, and peace in our lives. This occurs when the inner masculine and inner feminine are allowed to mature and merge in that maturity to create a new life within based on our truth. (More on.... merging the inner masculine and inner feminine)
Additionally, the feminine aspect of the creative process provides a direct connection to the source of our creative power. The flow of energy which sustains us flows directly form the Source of Creation. Accessing energy which flows from the source of our creative power in our life increase the probability of the Ultimate Accident and a conscious experience of the Source of Creation. (More on ..... accessing the source/Source through the feminine)
Understanding the different creative aspects and roles of the masculine and feminine within our being and learning their dance allows us: to heal the wounds of the past; become free from the burden of the uncertainty of the future; to live in the present; and to create whatever one desires to experience - especially fulfilling relationships. (More on .... learning the dance of the inner masculine and feminine)
The primary issue we face in surrendering to what we feel (top)
As stated above, feminine creative power is about feeling. It is about being intimate with what we feel and knowing how to allow what we feel to direct our creative endeavors. Since our life is one of our creative endeavors, it is also about knowing how to use feelings to direct our life. However, most of us have shut down our ability to feel very early in life as a result of the loss of our ability to creativity play. The primary issue we face is opening ourselves to feeling and what we feel. It is to face the pain of the past in whatever form it takes to regain our ability to freely enter a state of creative play.
But opening ourselves up to feeling is very hard to do for two reasons. One reason is pain is painful. To face pain, we need to understand the origins of pain and how to work with what our creative spirit is attempting to communicate to our conscious mind through pain. The second reason is that our inner masculine which is essential to creating a safe and secure space for our inner masculine is most often castrated. It is castrated in the sense that we have been taught to follow the truth of another before we follow our own truth. As such, we become creatively impotent. We copy the lives and works of others. It needs to be restored to health and vitality before we can properly use the creative power that lies within the feminine and within each of us.
To restore the inner masculine to vitality, we need learn our own truth. We need to be willing to step pass the programming, enculturation and experiences we have had to come to know and understand our own truth. We do this by learning to hold our creativity sacred, doing our own experiments on truth or about truth, and allows effectiveness to be our measure of truth. We need to look at what is effective in our life to give us an experience of a fullness of being, and inner satisfaction and/or a passion for life and for living. What is effective in our life and serves us will allow us to grow within and we can literally feel an expansion and fullness within our being. What does not serve us will either be not effective in our creative endeavors and/or we will experience a shrinking and/or contraction of our being. Since some creation are of long duration, doing what creates a feeling of expansion versus a feeling of shrinking and expansion will be the more usable measure of truth for us.
What needs to be understood is what is discussed here is for both males and females. A feminine creative aspect exists within both males and female. Creation cannot be done without it. The feminine is what nurtures a creation. It is the feminine creative power that is the source of the energy that animates our life and all that we do in our life and all that we create. Whether that creation is created by a male or female, without the nurturing of the feminine any creation will, atrophy, die or cease to exist. Unless we properly learn to how to access and work with the feminine aspect of our being we will never be unable to fully access our creative power and creative ability.
One of the easier ways to learn to work with the feminine aspect of our being is to return to a creative state of creative play and opening ourselves to feeling. One approach that may be useful is found in the topic, "Way to return A way to return to a state of childlike play and becoming opening to feeling without addressing the issue of our sexuality"

Using this material (top)
To work with the feminine aspect, we must align with the flow of energy that is nurturing and sustaining us. To align with the flow of energy that is nurturing us is to become aware of, and align with, our creative spirit and what it desires to create found in the intention for our life. To do this alignment, we need to step out of mind and into feeling the flow of energy that arise from the intention for our life. Then, in alignment with that flow, learn to navigate through life with an internal compass and what is symbolized in the heart gives us a fullness of being and allowing it to lead. It is to learn to navigate from the heart. (More on ..... accessing the intention for our life)
The approach presented on this web site is to provide an understand to access and effectively use the feminine aspect within our being, whether we are male or female. Exactly what any one individual will need to explore relative to the feminine aspect will depend on (1) what we desire to create and (2) the past that we carry. What we desire to create determines how much of a feminine presence we will need. The past we carry determines how strongly we have built the cage of our own making to protect our creative spirit when its creative actions were thwarted in the past, particularly in childhood.
A series of discussions and exercises taken from workshops on, or related to, accessing our feminine creative power are offered as a starting point. They will assist you in starting your journey in learning how to access and use the feminine aspect of the creative process and the feminine aspect within your being. If you choose to use this material, it is recommend you consider the ‘Truth in Labeling " discussion below and decide if you are willing to have your life change for your life will be impacted.

Truth in labeling (top)
Accessing and learning how to use the feminine aspect of the creative process and the feminine aspect within our being will change our life. How much our life will change depends on how we choose to use that feminine power.
One question that often arises is, "Why don’t you talk about the masculine aspect and its role in the creative process?" The answer is we do as you will seen in the sequential files on access our feminine power. But it is done relative to the feminine aspect. The reason for this is from a creativity perspective it is the masculine which causes creation and the feminine aspect which nurtures the creation. The masculine fulfills the role of consciousness as the cause in the creative process. The feminine fulfills the role of energy flowing to manifest the effect of the cause. The issue we wish to address here is why we are unable to create what we desire. This particular problem is an issue of accessing feminine creative power and learning how to use the inner feminine to nurture our truth.
What is poorly understood is that feminine aspect will always give and sacrifice much, much more in a creative endeavor than the masculine. Additionally, she will often give or herself to the creation much the way a mother and the fetus are one till that child is born. Then, after it is born, she may still be focused on that child nourishing the child with her milk and her attention till it can stand on its own two feet and enter the world. If she in any way withdraws her support too early, the creation is aborted and/or severely thwarted in its development and ultimate growth. The feminine aspect is in both males and females. It is the feminine aspect of our being and the creative process that has suffered and continues to suffers the most damage and has been misused, if not abused by the our mind.
