Are you looking to awaken your dark feminine energy?
Many women today are seeking out an alternative to the “love and light feminine” ideals that a lot of coaches and teachers seem to be advocating. They – like you? – are beginning to see through the polarity teachings of masculine and feminine energy, which at their core, place women in a subservient role to men.
These teachings would lead you to believe that women are weaker, softer, more fragile and in need of protection and guidance form their masculine counterparts.
Yet dark femininity turns these notions upside down. It’s not a new concept, but one that’s been suppressed for a LONG time – that there is a flavour of feminine energy that is strong, passionate, sensual, regenerative and wild.
I believe THIS is what so many women are craving. YEt the dark feminine is still so misunderstood, meaning many women and men find it threatening, frightening and therefore push it away.
But if you’re ready to peel back the layers of resistance, and shake off the shackles of “nice girl” conditioning, read on…
What is dark feminine energy?
Dark feminine energy is the potent, creative, life-giving and destructive spiritual essence of the feminine principle.
A stream of energy that is both infinite and imminent, it’s hard to describe in words, and best experienced through the body. It’s a feeling, a knowing, a connection with the pulse of life itself.
Contrary to what a lot of websites say online, dark feminine energy is not your shadow side. The dark feminine isn’t the wounded feminine, and it’s not bad, negative or evil.
But there’s more: Contrary to what a lot of people claim, the dark feminine isn’t “half” of the divine feminine either. The “light and dark side” of the feminine aren’t these polar opposites thas somehow combine to make a whole. In fact, this way of framing the feminine by teaching about “light and dark aspects” only serves to further fragment women, to reinforce the split already felt within many of our souls.
Dark feminine energy is –
- The void
- The liminal
- The unknown and the unknowable

How to use dark feminine energy affirmations
On the surface, dark feminine energy affirmations are simple phrases or sentences that you repeat aloud, to anchor the meaning, intention or sentiment into your unconscious mind.
It sounds too simple to be true, which is why affirmations tend to be overlooked by many people. But these dark feminine energy affirmations have the potential to radically transform the perspective you have of yourself and what you are capable of.
The right affirmations can help you to practice self-love, create boundaries and delve deeper into your personal healing journey, in a gentle and supportive way. Yet these affirmations can also help you access dark feminine energy, and catalyse the awakening of your authenticity.
This is because when used consistently, affirmations can help to re-programme the subconscious mind.
For many women, their dark feminine traits have been either forgotten about, rejected, or actively suppressed until they become part of the shadow self, left in the dusty corners of the unconscious.
Over time, these dark feminine energy afirmations will seep into the unconscious, eroding old beliefs and we-writing patterns, until the dark feminine is able to take her place in the light of consciousness again.
At this point, the shadow self will be reclaimed, light and dark will be integrated,
What does dark feminine energy feel like?
So how do you know when it’s “working”?! How can you be sure that you’re tapping into the dark feminine, and not unleashing your shadow, or simply expressing more patriarchal expectations of femininity?
It’s simple, you know you’re tapping into dark feminine energy when you feel that deep, rich true connection to the divine. When you feel it in your body (and not as an out-of-body, “ascension” type connection).
Dark feminine energy feels like trust, depth, magic and the confidence that comes when you know you are held in the dark womb of the Goddess.
It’s something you need to discover and experience for yourself – words can’t quite describe it. But it’s HERE, in the moment. You only need to open up and let her in.
