Your greatest power is in using your feminine influence for good—for serving others. It can do more than you might think. You might even change the world. It's that powerful.
Feminine power is the ability or skill to make the world want to change, rather than the masculine approach of force to affect change. It is expressed best through feminine influence. Our perspective is nurturing, empathetic, supportive, and bonding. We are more open to reaching out and talking, even getting help with what we are trying to do. Instead of crashing through doors, we encourage doors to be opened for us. We excel at this.
The Wind and the Sun—Aesop’s Fables
The Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the stronger. Suddenly, they saw a traveler coming down the road and the Sun said: “I see a way to decide our dispute. Which ever of us can cause that traveler to take off his cloak shall be regarded as the stronger. You begin.
So the Sun retired behind a cloud, and the Wind began to blow as hard as it could upon the traveler. But the harder he blew, the more closely did the traveler wrap his cloak around him, till at last the Wind had to give up in despair. Then the Sun came out and shone in all his glory upon the traveler, who soon found it too hot to walk with his cloak on.
The sun’s gentle rays didn’t need to work hard upon the traveler and were much more powerful than the force of the wind. Its influence caused the traveler to remove his own coat freely and without resentment. Feminine power is similar to this.
