Feminine Insight

You may have heard of the term feminine intuition, but the feminine woman of excellence has feminine insight as well dear reader.




Insight is defined as the understanding of a specific cause and effect, in context or the apprehending of the true nature of a thing, especially through intuitive understanding.

Feminine insight is the gift or ability that a feminine woman of excellence has in identify a situation for what it is (or Seeing Things As They Are) and responding appropriately.  The feminine woman is also insightful, meaning that she is perceptive.  She reflects often and understands the interconnectedness of all of life.

The advantage of having insight is that the feminine woman of excellence spots patterns more quickly and instantly read any situation, be it an interpersonal conflict, a relationship issue, or even a workplace problem she’s been tasked to solve.

“People in a better mood are more likely to solve problems by insight.”

“Research has shown sleep to help produce insight.”


She takes care of herself and her body first and foremost, with right diet, nutrition, exercise, and sleep.

This can sometimes be easier said than done, however.  Proper self-care truly requires management of all aspects of one’s life and will be covered separately. (:


Listening to Your Own Inner Voice

One unmistakeable quality of the feminine woman of excellence is that she is able to take into consideration the thoughts and ideas she hears from others and from the world at large, without immediately absorbing them into her belief-system.  She carefully considers, thinks things over, and then decides if she agrees or not.

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” – Aristotle

Unfortunately many women are not quite there yet.




On a date, for example, when asked to select your food, instead of looking through your options and selecting what you want, you either pick with the intention of catering to your company, or even worse, you leave the decision up to him entirely.

Not all women are like this of course, however women often give up their power by not consulting their own minds, thoughts, wishes, and desires first in other ways.

Your friends and family suggest you go to places, and you simply “go with the flow” rather than thinking through whether or not you really want to; you listen to people you consider authority figures or people within your network or friend group whom you look up to express their opinions and then take these as gospel without thinking them through.

What you need to do is break out of this adolescent habit by asking yourself in all cases, what is it that I think, and what do I want?  Does what I have seen and experienced in life validate the opinion being put forwards? Does this make sense, on an intuitive level to me?

Sadly too many women discredit their own opinions and somehow believe that another knows what’s best for them.  By the way, even hiring a professional to manage an aspect of your life does not absolve you of the responsibility of understanding the dynamics and making important decisions for yourself – for instance, even if you hire a financial professional or a doctor, you are still ultimately responsible for the state of your finances and health, respectively.


“You must become less susceptible to influences outside of yourself and more inclined to trust the instincts and feelings that lie within you.”

Why men get “bored”

Boredom, dear reader, is one of the many reasons why a man may cheat, and is often the cause of the lack of care and attention that women complain of in their relationships and in their marriages.


All men will become disengaged if they feel that they aren’t connecting with a woman.  He will feel as though he is not being heard, or understood, or that she doesn’t have the ability to read him and respond to him appropriately.  This is really what is happening when a man is complaining that a woman is “nagging” him or if a woman gossips to him.

A woman may be physically attractive, kind, and possess any number of positive traits, but if a man feels that by spending his time with her, he is not bettering himself, as a man, he will get bored.  The type of man who gets bored is looking for a woman who will help him to improve himself in some way.

If a man is bored, he is in need of greater passion, attraction, and play.  This sort of attraction, dear reader, is more on a psychological level than on a physical one.

He wants someone who will catch him off guard at times, who will correct him when he is wrong (tactfully and kindly of course!) and who he cannot “figure out” or read easily at all times.  The woman with whom he gets bored is too predictable, in the bad sense of the word.

She is predictable and fails to captivate his imagination and thus build attraction because she is not living out of her feminine intuition.  The sad reality is that all women have the ability to be captivating and mesmerizing for a man, to have his complete admiration and attention.  The problem is that women do not channel their inner feminine nature and because of this end up doubting themselves and giving away their power.  They become a slave and a follower to trends, popular opinions, anything and everything but their own inner voice and intuition.  They have learned to place their trust somewhere outside of themselves.

A man seeks a woman because he wants something unique, original, something he does not already have and cannot find elsewhere.  When a woman’s charm and motivations are not coming from within her person, he will feel no need for her, because she is only a duplicate, a recreation.

Boudoir  and not to mention love her hair color!!!! <3

In the movie Inception, Cobb summed up the male psychological stance quite elegantly when he told his wife (the version he recreated in his mind after her death):

“But I can’t imagine you with all your complexity, all your perfection, all your imperfection.  Look at you.  You are just a shade of my real wife.  You’re the best I can do, but I’m sorry you’re just not good enough.”

Men simply do not possess the ability to create or define what it is they will want in a woman.  They cannot conceive of it in this way – they will know what they like after it is presented to them, but they cannot determine it beforehand.  This is the reason why a woman looking to please and captivate a man by replacing her own inner intuition with a man’s advice or any sort of outside perspective will fail every time.

Men are designed to appreciate and love what a woman is when she is in her natural, most feminine state.  This is something foreign to them and their thinking, which is why they are unable to tell a woman how to do it.

What it might look like:

  • A woman sees a beautiful flower, becomes captivated, disregards all else and whatever she was doing to take a photo
  • She stops to play with an adorable puppy
  • She spends a great deal of time putting together the perfect outfit, delighted when it turns out “just right”
  • She takes a long, hot bath, letting herself daydream and relax into it
  • She spontaneously compliments another woman
  • She smiles and hugs her man after she feels a wave of appreciation for something he does

She is genuine and is living from a state of love, experiencing her full range of emotions and not apologizing for them.

Divine Femininity: Nine fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit

A part of femininity, dear reader, is connection with intuition and the divine; this is something that is particular to women and while men may also experience this, it’s much more prevalent in women.

A beautiful pic/Kundalini -  Every woman has the possibility to awaken the divine feminine within, but she first has to open herself to her potential and throw off the prejudice and guilt imposed by a patriarchal world.

Many women (and men, for that matter), spend their whole lives pursuing these gifts and fruits, because they are so powerful.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  – Galatians 5:22-23

  • Love
    Feminine love, dear reader, is the epitome and zenith of what it means to be a woman. When a woman is at her most loving, when she is able to exist as pure love, she is at her most powerful.  In this state she can touch millions – she can renew even the hardest, meanest, cruelest heart and she herself is totally renewed.  When she experiences that deep, transcendent love, what is irrelevant and doesn’t truly matter or last will have no hold on her and she is in her truest, most sincere form.
  • Joy
    When a woman experiences a sense of joy, she is at one with the earth and its creation. She delights in what an amazing gift this life is and she feels such a deep tranquility and peace that nothing can touch or harm her.  With this experience of feminine joy is intertwined a sense of very, very deep gratitude and thanksgiving.
  • Peace
    For a woman to be at peace, and to radiate it, means that she has reached a point of acceptance and surrender within herself.  She is okay with whatever has happened in her life in the past, and does not try to deny it or need to change it into anything other than what it was.  She can do this because she knows it no longer has any hold over her; she is completely detached from it and has taken from it what she needs to and has left the rest.  She is also okay with whatever might happen to her in the present and the future.  She trusts herself to remain calm and at ease, and knows that she can handle any situation that might come her way.

  • Patience
    The patient woman, dear reader, is a very special one. She is a gift to all those who come into contact with her.  She doesn’t become frustrated with herself and her own shortcomings, or those of others around her.  She lives her life on a much larger time-scale than most and has a perspective that allows her to keep her state – she knows, for example, that daily disappointments and problems pale in comparison on that larger scale.
  • Kindness
    Kindness, dear reader, is elaborated further here. As mentioned before, true kindness stems from a woman’s love for herself and for all of creation.  She experiences a genuine joy from treating both with respect and love.
  • Goodness
    Goodness, dear reader, will make any woman look beautiful, no matter how plain she is. Goodness is not so warm and loving as kindness, but is no less powerful as a virtue.  For a woman to have goodness means that she does what is right and proper, and really has no desire to do otherwise.  She is content with what she has and doesn’t distress herself or go out on a limb to obtain that which she doesn’t have and wants.
  • Faithfulness
    Faithfulness in a woman is not so much a loyalty to one’s husband or even to one’s religion. It is more encompassing.  The faithful woman trusts in a much deeper sense than that and is thus able to live a life with minimal, if any, stress.  She trusts that she will be protected from any true or lasting harm, that everything is for the best, and that people are basically good at heart though they may err.

  • Gentleness
    Gentleness will make a woman beautiful externally and internally. The gentle woman never uses undo force – she never attempts to force anything to happen and is content to let things be.  Because she has this quality, dear reader, she does not unintentionally harm herself or anyone else.  She is not disturbed by crudeness, rudeness, or any other sort of negativity in others, but rather feels a sense of sympathy for them because she knows how unnecessary it is.
  • Self-control
    Self-control is a quality that will surely catapult a woman to greatness and to authentic power.  When a woman can master herself, she is able to accomplish so much more with her time and her energy.  She is not a slave to passing emotions and desires, but can concentrate on what she truly wishes to do and to be.  This is further elaborated upon here.

The nine gifts are a bit more subtle: they are words of knowledge, words of wisdom, gifts of prophesy, gift of faith, gift of healings, working of miracles, discerning of spirits, different kinds of tongues, and interpretation of tongues.

  • Words of knowledge
    When a woman is gifted with divine knowledge, this means she has innate abilities and talents that she did not learn through her own efforts. She simply has them and does not question them.  For example, a woman might just “naturally” be an excellent orator – she didn’t have any specific training and didn’t develop that skill through other means.
  • Words of wisdom
    When a woman has words of wisdom, she knows exactly what to say, and when to say it. She has a knack for understanding what it is others need to realize at a particular moment in time.  The woman who has this understands the deeper truths in life and the “life lessons” that seem to repeat themselves so often.
  • Gifts of prophesy
    Gifts of prophesy are something like déjà vu; perhaps immediately before something happens, a woman just knows that it will come to pass, or has some sort of strange feeling telling her something is about to occur.

Harper's Bazaar Australia September 2014 | Ondria Hardin by David Mandelberg [Editorial]

  • Gift of faith
    True faith, both in a high power, and in a more universal sense of the word, are a gift, dear reader. It is not achieved through one’s own efforts, so attempting to force it upon anyone else will never work.  When a woman is gifted with faith, she does not question the signs that come into her life, and she follows her intuition; she experiences very little true fear, if any at all.
  • Gift of healings
    When a woman is given this particular gift, she is able to feel and understand exactly what another has gone through or is currently going through.  She is able to put herself in those shoes in order to illuminate the problems that are causing the suffering, and then do what needs to be done to solve them.
  • Working of miracles
    If a woman is gifted with this, she and those around her can be spared from harm through divine intervention.  For example, a woman that was about to take a trip that is cancelled at the last minute and later finds out that the bus, train, car, or plane she was in suffered a terrible accident, she has been the recipient of this gift.

Nadia Serlidou, Harper's Bazaar Turkey, June 2011

  • Discerning of spirits
    To have this gift means that a woman is able to judge others’ characters and true intentions clearly, and in the moment when it counts.  If someone has ill intentions, she knows it, and can feel it.  An example of this gift at work was when Oprah Winfrey interviewed members of the Ku Klux Klan and could sense when they used the visibility of the show to give out secret recruiting symbols – during the show she reported feeling this, but it was not until afterwards that she became aware of just what was going on.
  • Different kinds of tongues
    To be gifted with different kinds of tongues does not necessarily mean to speak different languages.  Rather, it means to be able to infuse multiple and layered meanings into a single set of words.  For example, this is called metaphor or symbolism when used as a device in literature.  It enables one to speak at different levels to different portions of one’s audience, at the same time.
  • Interpretation of tongues
    To have interpretation of tongues means to be able to recognize and understand when another is using different kinds of tongues.  The woman who is gifted with this has the ability to see and understand each layer of the meaning in a message.
