Panda comes to you today and asks you to go within and seek there areas that require balance.

Yin is often symbolized by water or earth, while yang is symbolized by fire, or wind. Yin (receptive, feminine, dark, passive force) and yang (creative, masculine, bright, active force) are complementary opposites rather than absolutes. One is not better than the other. Instead they are both necessary and a balance of both is highly desirable. This thinking is different from the duality of most religions where one state overcomes the other e.g. good over evil. In the concept of Yin Yang, too much of either one is bad. The ideal is a balance of both.

A way to balance your feminine and masculine aspects is to embody the qualities you notice are missing, and tone down the ones that are overdone. For example, if you tend to be over active, always on the go, doing, doing, doing, you most likely have a lot of masculine yang energy. To balance this, practice slowing down. Take time to meditate each day. Go for slow walks out in nature or do a relaxing form of yoga. Get out of your head and experience the benefits of simply being without any agenda or need to accomplish. Practice giving.

If you tend to be nurturing, agreeable and playing the ‘nice’ role meeting everyone else’s needs but your own, you may have an adequate amount of female yin energy but could use a dose of male, yang energy. Initiate a project just for yourself. Try warrior yoga poses. Set healthy boundaries by saying “No” at least once a week. Practice receiving.
