It is quite difficult to mindfully live in a patriarchal society wherein you’ve to walk in front of the world with heavy emotions! A woman’s body is often a subject of discussion or I can say it is used as a weapon by society to disempower a woman who is rebellious or takes her stand against the culture’s expectations.
I really don’t understand the idea of setting cultural expectations in front of women who are ambitious, strong, and courageous!
Trying to meet the ideals of how we should behave, how we should make up, how we should dress, or how our bodies should look… often transforms our goals and ambitions in a negative direction. But the good part is that you don’t have to fight inner battles to meet the ideals or societal expectations anymore!
I have brought you a concept of female embodiment which is empowering in different ways. It’s a new concept to build connection and comfort with your body and find resistance to self-objectification.
So, let’s get started and explore what female embodiment has to offer!
Understanding The Concept & Theories Of Female Embodiment
While embodiment means the connection of mind and body, the female embodiment is a concept that enhances the connection with the acceptance of the body. It’s also about celebrating and embracing the unique features in ourselves that make us exclusive. Female embodiment means getting comfortable in your own skin and recognizing the beauty within.
The concept of female embodiment is not gender-specific. The pillars of embodiment let the feeling flow! It develops the connection and embodies it healthily. In order to feel embodied, you must inherit the assets of feminine energy such as depth, feeling, flow, and inward with the qualities of masculine energy such as direction, forward, and vision contractedly.
This contrast can help us achieve a balance with purpose, radiance, endless love, and inner beauty. In a deeper meaning, the balance lets us reclaim our bodies back, provides freedom from our suppressed emotions, and lets us love ourselves without any societal boundaries and expectations! It provides us the strength to overcome the patriarchal norms.
