Attributes of the Masculine & Feminine

I am sharing these attributes with you, to use as a reference and assistance in your journey. We have both Feminine and Masculine energies dancing throughout our being; it is by identifying, honoring and embracing these powerful energies within us that we will understand the unique balance of our Spirit.

Since we are all unique blends of these energies; keep in mind that although these attributes are commonly associated within the Masculine & Feminine headings, they are not written in stone.
