Recently my feminine and masculine energies have been all jumbled. Any advice on how fix it?

Asked by Anonymous

I believe this is a normal experience which should be embraced rather than “fixed”. We are all a product of both male and female energies and I encourage exploration of all aspects of the self. The over-culture pushes us to fit into a binary definition of gender and discourages the male from expressing or experiencing their feminine aspects or female their masculine. We are each unique and beautiful and our diversity should be celebrated without shame. I have struggled with these issues personally. As a child of the 80’s I was for a very long time, very homophobic. As I turned to earth based spirituality I came to more fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity both within and without (as of there is a distinction better the two). Be yourself, explore yourself, and accept yourself with love and brightest blessings.

I was wondering if you would be willing to give some advice to a confused soul.

I would be happy to.

To the white bread girl, I'm white too. But I think if you are going to become an advocate for the people you shouldn't look at it like it's a mission or something. It's great that you love the Lakota, and it's great you want to learn more, etc. but like the other anon said—be a part of some of the movements. The Keystone XL Pipeline/Tar Sands... Lakota foster children... etc. Do more than just learn. Be a part of it

Great advice. Come protest with us and help save sacred water and Mother Earth.

Best advice ever! Join the fight and let the LRI lead the way. They have traditional knowledge and worldview to provide the alternative vision our future needs!

Potential allies like "white bread girl" also need to remember that it's not about us, the allies. It's not about relieving our guilt or giving us a beautiful cultural experience, or finding a place to belong. It's about justice and human rights.
