Welcome to Healing Journeys - a corner of Basmati.com where you can read about our team's real experiences with different holistic healing modalities. Trying a new type of healing can be overwhelming and you might first want to hear about someone's experience before taking the plunge. Healing Journeys will cover many different types of healing.
This particular subsection or series of Healing Journeys will be an exploration of energy healing with Basmati's Ursula Squire. Each week, I'll write about my newest experiences with energy healing. This blog will be quite candid, and often include documentation of my thoughts around a particular session. My goal is to share what I have learned and make available information for different healing modalities that you may be curious about or interested in trying.
Full disclosure: I've never tried energy healing before, and I'm excited by holistic healing modalities. As a person who has anxious and OCD tendencies, but who doesn't feel that Western medicine is the right fit, I've decided to embark on this amazing journey, and I'd like to share with all of you!

GRACE Integrity: Inner Masculine & Feminine Connection
November 7, 2017
We’ve covered this topic before, but it takes more than once to really get the whole message of the topic.
I’ve talked a lot about learning to more fully embrace the divine feminine energy within me, and these sessions are always a good reminder of how I can do this on a more daily basis or in a more tangible way. Ultimately, the way I see it, the goal is to internalize this appreciation for the divine feminine and masculine energies within us so that the understanding of balance is inherent within us when viewing/approaching the world.
In one session, I talked about how some people (including myself) are quick to equate feminine with submissive and masculine with powerful. But, the truth is, it doesn’t break down like this on a universal or energetic level. Yes, there are attributes or traits that are inherently more feminine (like nurturing, for example) and traits that are inherently more masculine (like steadfastness, for example). But, the way society has prescribed these traits has categorized these energies into a false dichotomy of weak and strong. And, of course, that isn’t the case!
Men shouldn’t be all masculine. Women shouldn’t be all feminine. Instead, we’re each trying to find and maintain a balance of the energies within ourselves that corresponds/aligns with not only our higher Selves, but also with the rest of the universe.
These realizations have led me to explore the dynamics of my interpersonal relationships more deeply. What traits do I inherently assign to “men” or “women” rather than as part of an overall energetic structure. Everyone can (and “should”) be both caring and strong. It’s all part of the human experience. Embrace it.
What are some ways that you can balance your feminine and masculine energies?
Lately, I’ve made a point to spend more time becoming physically stronger through exercising more, but I’ve also spent more time engaging in self-care in the sense of enjoying my routine to get ready for the day (whether that’s showering, enjoying a new lotion, or trying a facemask). It’s not about the beautification that the process yields, so much as the process itself (engaging in self care).
