Why Boss Bitch Vibes Lead to Burnout
First of all, you might be questioning what ‘Boss Bitch Vibes’ actually means?
In the coaching industry, we hear statements such as ‘Boss Bitch Vibes’ which encourages women to exert their authority by stepping into their masculine energy and leaving their natural feminine flow behind.
The Urban Dictionary defines Boss Bitch Vibes as ‘a confident, successful and independent woman who speaks her mind and stands up for what she believes in. She keeps it 100% real with everyone, sets boundaries and isn’t afraid to go after what she wants.’
Whilst going after what you want can be perceived as ‘courageous’, it can also be very damaging to our health. In order to hit your goals, it requires you to step into your ‘doing’ energy and too much ‘doing’ can cause an imbalance in energies. This imbalance can lead to burnout.
The feminine energy has been associated with being ‘weak’ and more and more women have become disconnected from their natural state of flow by operating in their ‘hyper masculine energy’ and ‘doing’ too much, not giving themselves time to rest.
The New Paradigm
For years we have seen the coaching industry operate in a masculine matrix that has kept women trapped in a non-emotional state and causing a disconnect. The masculine energy is perceived by society as strong, and for ambitious women to be approved ‘as good as a man’ they have been encouraged to step into their ‘boss bitch vibes’.
Things are changing! Our entire planet is moving into a natural feminine flow and we are moving away from these masculine traits that have kept many women suffocated and disconnected. Women are starting to awaken and understand that to advance their careers, they cannot hide their true identity or suppress their underlying emotions.
The Masculine Vs Feminine Paradigm
Masculine energy is the ‘doing energy’ which we use to get results. However, over the years, it has been encouraged so much within the workplace that we ‘have’ to do more in order to get more. This has led to a society of people disconnected from their feminine energy, by operating in our ‘hyper masculine’.
Hyper masculine is when you operate too much in your masculine, this looks like feeling overworked, over analysing, being too logical & pragmatic, feeling burnt-out, constantly overthinking, unable to switch off, overdoing and becoming obsessed and consumed with their day to day careers. All of these behaviours are driven from the belief that you have to ‘do more to get more’.
But like everything, (just like Ying & Yang), we need both energies.
Contrary to the masculine energy, feminine energy is about flow. It is less about rational and logical minded energy. It is more about using your internal guidance and intuition, that comes from the heart. It requires you to connect inwardly and hear the whispers of your own mind.
Mastering Your Energies
To achieve balance and consistently reach success, we must master the duality of masculine and feminine energies. As an Energy Expert, I help women in business realign their energies by eliminating their emotional wounds which are driving their hyper masculine behaviours (overdoing & overworking).
How To Re-align Your Energy?
If you are a woman in business addicted to the ‘hustle’ and ‘grind’ then follow these my practical tips, to realign your energy and find your natural flow.
- Find Your Inner Connection: Whether that be meditation for just five minutes a day, going for a walk and connecting to nature, or breath work. Find time each day to connect inwards. This gets you out of your logical brain (masculine energy) and centred into your heart (feminine energy).
- Be Present: If you are always overthinking and thinking ahead, then you will find it hard to be grateful for the now. Make 10 minutes a day to say ‘thank you’ for everything around you. This can simply be, day to day things such as feeling grateful for your warm cosy bed, your fridge full of food, or for your loving family. Take time to appreciate what you have around you and it’ll bring you into the present moment.
- Find a routine at bedtime that calms your mind – it is hard to sleep with a busy brain. The best techniques to slow your brain waves is to listen to hypnosis or theta subliminals.
