Feminine Qualities



Becoming mindful is an excellent avenue for self-care and self-realization. In order to get the most out of mindfulness, you need to practice it in ways that are harmonious with your basic nature. The practices contained in The Mindful Woman concentrate on feminine strengths, qualities, and energies.


The following list of feminine qualities and energies is by no means complete. Rather, it is a sampling pointing out the intuitive, relational heart of femininity.


Feminine qualities include:


Diffuse awareness: perceives and understands a wide range of stimuli simultaneously;

expansive comprehension


Sensitive: responsive to external and internal conditions or stimulation; susceptible to attitudes, feelings, or circumstances of self and others


Emotionally grounded: steady, stable, well-balanced, able to bring all of her energy to exactly where she is in the moment


Intuitive: holistic, accessing immediate perception rather than rational thinking


Relational: interested in preserving and deepening relationships


Compassionate: empathetic, warm, openhearted, understanding


Empowered: with steeled softness, champions the weak and vulnerable and stands firm for what is right


Honoring of process: able to allow circumstances, ideas, and experiences to unfold


Gentle: able to live gently with herself and others


Forgiving: realizes we are all imperfect and that non-forgiveness dams the natural flow of life force


Receptive: open to receive the new, different, and wondrous


Introspective: drawn to the spiritual and philosophical


Strong: inherently able to overcome whatever life throws at her in order to accomplish what is needed


Healing: carries the ability to heal body, mind, and spirit through listening deeply to her internal, inherent wisdom


Recognizing these feminine qualities as ones you possess, or aspire to possess, can help you understand and respect the natural qualities you have and use them to lovingly and tolerantly guide yourself on a path to increased mindfulness.
