Any self-help guru worth the cover price will show you ways to attract what you want, whether that is a better job, a mate, more health, more wealth, or even a child.
This is a very masculine way of attracting. It assumes a contracting universe, since you are taught to draw inward your desired outcome to you.
Yet we live not in a contracting universe, but an ever-expanding universe. Might there be a better way to manifest what we want?
We live in exciting times. We are now in a major shift of a 5000-year cycle from masculine energy (doing) to feminine energy (being). This is about energy characteristics, not gender. And we all have both in varying degrees.
There are no “good/bad” judgments on these terms –- one is not better than the other. Sitting around and “being” is not superior to ceaseless “doing.” The key is to consciously balance both. Nature does, and encourages this -- day balanced with night. Activity balanced with rest. Inhale balanced with exhale. Even life balanced with death (there’s a term for cells that don’t die when they are supposed to: they are called “cancer”). Opposites are dualities that depend on each other for their very existence.
A more feminine way of manifesting uses expansion. Rather than working in the realm of duality, it goes up a level, if you will, to the realm of unity. Contraction assumes what you want is separate from you. Expansion acknowledges that nothing is separate from you –- it is only unmanifested because of limits to your ability to live consciously.
Next I will share an expansion exercise that can be used by couples waiting to adopt.
