I’ve been debating all day on which post I should write about first: Gender Synergy or Feminine energy as it relates to fibroids. The Gender Synergy post will surely help explain this one better but I felt this was important and critical to get posted ASAP.
Yesterday evening I attended a seminar on Gender Synergy. The presenter was one of my favorite speakers, Jean-Pierre LeBlanc of Saje Natural Wellness. The explanation for the seminar is as follows:
Explore a new revolutionary paradigm for relationships and learn the surprising new rules for winning the relationship game. Learn to connect with your goddess and nurture your feminine.
Even though I’m not in a relationship, I’m curious and I like the 25% discount off products for attending the session. (I’m honest). Luckily, I got so much more from the seminar especially for the relationship I have with myself and my health.
I have fibroids, several of them. Large ones included. I was diagnosed in 2001, ten years ago this month. And while they don’t cause pressure, I do have a problem in which I won’t go into at this time. Nevertheless, I’ve been living with them. The seminar helped me with understanding why they may occur. Too much masculine energy.
Masculine and feminine energy are concepts under Gender Synergy. I’m not going to explain in the same way Jean-Pierre explains it but will explain based on my interpretation. Essentially, there are aspects, qualities that are feminine and masculine. Let’s call it energy (a whole other post based on quantum physics). And while we have a dominate energy core we can often tap into our opposite. I have a feminine energy core but can easily tap into my masculine energy when necessary. But sometimes I have held onto that masculine energy for too long whether it’s to compensate in the workplace for a manager who has too much feminine energy flowing or even in a relationship. The nuts and bolts of it is I’ve been very independent (not a bad thing) for a good part of my life, had to deal with a lot of things on my own and relied on my masculine energy to do this.
In living this way, some of those feminine energy qualities were suppressed or put to the side. This is true of a lot of African-American women. Which got me to thinking last evening…could the masculine and feminine energies play into the diagnosis of fibroids? I think so.
No one can explain why African-American women are more susceptible to fibroids than any other culture or race. I’ve talked to doctors, search the ‘net and found nothing. But if we apply the thought of masculine and feminine energies to understand fibroids in African-American women, we may be on to something.
Many African-American women tap into a lot of masculine energy. To get along on the day-to-day. I’m one of them. In living this way for so long, did I suppress my feminine energy that I was essentially attacked by my own body at the core of what makes me a woman, my uterus? I’m beginning to think so. No doctor can provide an alternative reasoning as to why African-American women get fibroids more than any other culture. With that, I’m going to focus more on this.
I recently saw some of my tumors in a procedure called a hysteroscopy
. Those tumors didn’t look like anything close to “sugar and spice and everything nice.”
I had this discussion today with my mom and she agreed. My mom loves me but she will not hesitate to tell me if I’m off base. She just does it in a nice way. She was on board with this hypothesis.
Typically there are a few ways to get rid of fibroids. Drugs including birth control pills, waiting them out until menopause when estrogens levels drop, and surgery including a hysterectomy which was the leading treatment for so many years. I have heard of some women using alternative methods successfully. I’m going to try to nurture my feminine side more to see if there’s a difference in how I feel.
I don’t have a plan yet but I’m going to start by acknowledging my past heavy reliance on my masculine energy. Moving forward, I plan to devote time to connecting to and nurturing my feminine. Let’s see what happens.
