As the world around us feels unsettled and uncertain, it’s time to come within ourselves and get our own interior body into balance before we worry about the outside environment.

Yes the food we eat, the thoughts we think, the water we drink and the air we breathe are all important for finding the balance that enables us to thrive... but what about the values we seek and the attributes within us? How well do you know yourself?

Regardless of the gender you identify with, we're all designed to be built upon a balance of both masculine and feminine energies - just like the yin yang symbol in Chinese Medicine.

One of the biggest struggles in our world at the moment is the huge fight between those far too dominant in masculine energies, versus those far too dominant in feminine energy.



I wonder if you can bring back a balance within yourself by finding values or personality traits below that you can either decide to let go of, or decide to add to your daily mindset. Be honest with yourself but kind and gentle too - there’s no right or wrong.
