I love Dr. Christiane Northup’s take on this concept of balance. In her analogy, sperm are masculine, and the egg is feminine. Think about it!
Sperm are the masculine side of balance. They are competitive, driven by survival, moving quickly to get to the destination. For them, to win is to swim faster than the rest.
Eggs are the feminine side. The egg is calm and relaxed as it sits and waits to receive.
These are not related to gender at all. The masculine principles do not only apply to men, and the feminine principles do not only apply to women. Everyone can encompass these masculine and feminine qualities.
When we intentionally invite both of these concepts into our lives as mothers, we can choose intentionally how we want to be with our kids. Our mothering requires us to embrace the masculine and the feminine.
