There is a lot of beautiful writing happening around the feminine protector among women. A sometimes fierce energy that has found its duty in protecting the supple beauty and divine creative power of the inner feminine. It has arisen out of the need to keep this jewel safe in the invulnerable and aggressive world of the unhealed masculine energy that the feminine has found itself residing in. But this was until such time when it was no longer needed and the more authentic and powerful BEing could emerge from its sheltered perch to relieve this sentry from his post and become more of an advisor and loyal inner guide, as well as a mate template.
This picture feels so alive and clear to me. But what of our male protection? What has kept us in the more invulnerable state of truly letting our hearts be felt and expressed in a way that takes us into our hidden and not so pretty places? Our fear and small places? I feel how our inner feminine has been protected as well, along with our inner child in order to “survive” in a very outbound 3D reality. Get to the heart of any man and you will find a pain of loneliness, disempowerment, and uncertainty of what the hell masculinity even is! There is a rage of not being shown the “way” by a father who hadn’t the faintest clue himself in many ways.
For most men, the protection arose as either `fight or flight´. A more aggressive warrior technician scientist that could fear or control his way into a false sense of power and safety. This protection is meant to satiate the fear that lies in the inner boy or to even quell it as ‘boys don’t cry’. This is a check against any outside force that would use this vulnerability against him as a ‘weakness’. The fear of truly feeling what lies in our hearts is a difficult one for many men to bear. This happens at varying degrees for each one of us.
The flight response, which tended to be mine most of my life is the protection of hiding. In this form, the protector could be male, and it could also be female as in a very protective mother. For those of us that were ‘mama’s boys’ with doting mothers, this would feel familiar. Here our fight response has been muted and even castrated to some point. An inner punisher voice can intensify the hiding if the father energy had similar tones as well. Here the inner sensitive boy/feminine is much more aware and the protector will do anything possible to keep the boy from being put in situations where it would be vulnerable to attack.
For men, this protector is also found in the soul domain as a soul guardian and can serve this role very aptly. Using spiritual gifts as a way to transcend or hide from very real emotional human pain and trauma that lies dormant in the emotional body. This relationship holds many keys to our arising sacred humanity and access to even deeper embodiment of our soul purpose and gifts.
You can feel your protector when you feel pressed to produce, express, or manage in a very controlled or outbound way. Or when you feel tight, distrustful, or anxious. If you feel like you want to avoid something or just can’t find the will to even get out of bed. Or maybe you just want to leave this dimension all together and find yourself back ‘home’. The way we relate to the females in our life can show our protector if we find ourselves care-taking or pushing them away. There are so many ways he, or she, can show up.
The main question to ask yourself is if you are fully BEing and living a life full of Joy and Possibility in any given moment. To the 3D mind and suffering heart, constant Joy is an unknown yet this IS what is real in our essence as Infinite Love. If we aren’t feeling a connection to this love frequency frequently, then there is a protection in between it and us. I am continuing to unfold this for myself everyday.
The protector of our male hearts is as valuable and tender as its feminine counterpart. With a relationship to it, we can find ourselves softer and less aggressive, as well as more bold, provocative, and assertive with an open heart. I feel so much more in my own power and masculinity than I did just 4 short years ago with this negotiation and relationship to that which has kept me hidden instead of outed. Suffering instead of in Joy.
