Father’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to honor and celebrate the dads and father figures in our lives. This special occasion not only allows us to express our gratitude for their love and support but also provides an opportunity to explore the power of masculine energy.
As we mentioned in our previous blog, we all have a balance of masculine and feminine energy within us, and it’s important to embrace both sides.
So, what exactly is masculine energy?
Masculine energy allows us to create stability, rules, and structure in order to make logical decisions. This comes into play when taking action and getting things done to achieve certain goals.
Individuals with masculine energy also have the gift of focus and clarity, to minimize confusion and hesitation as much as possible. Masculine energy is also protective, so whenever someone senses danger – the masculine side will kick in to fight for what you love and to make sure that nothing harms or threatens anyone or anything that is near and dear to you.
Want to learn how to tap into your masculine energy?
Well, here are some tips you can do in New York City and beyond to celebrate Father’s Day and options to connect with your body and emotions in creative ways to become the best version you can be.
1. Embrace Adventure: One of the remarkable qualities associated with masculine energy is a thirst for adventure. This Father’s Day, plan a thrilling outing with your dad or any father figure you admire! Whether it’s hiking in the mountains up in New Paltz, kayaking on the Hudson River, or even taking the chance to explore a new city by hopping on the Megabus, Amtrak or Long Island Rail Road! All of this creates memorable experiences together that will deepen your bond and ignite your adventurous spirits.
2. Connect with Nature: Spending time in nature is a wonderful way to awaken your masculine energy and reconnect with your roots. Take your dad on a camping trip, go fishing together, or simply embark on a leisurely walk in a nearby park. The beauty of nature has a way of rejuvenating and grounding us, reminding us of our inherent connection with the world around us.
3. Engage in Sports: Sports have long been associated with masculinity, and they offer an excellent outlet for tapping into that type of energy. Organize a friendly competitive game of basketball (perhaps rooting for the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden together), axe throwing, swimming, or any other sport your dad enjoys. Engaging in physical activities and exercise not only boosts your mood and energy levels but it also promotes a sense of camaraderie, community, healthy competition, and of course – creating memories that will last a lifetime.
4. Cultivate Mindfulness: While masculine energy is often associated with action and assertiveness, it is equally important to cultivate a sense of mindfulness as well. Encourage your dad to practice meditation, yoga, tai chi or other mindfulness techniques. These practices help develop self-awareness, enhance emotional intelligence, and promote a sense of balance within the mind, body and soul.
5. Celebrate Your Creativity: Contrary to popular belief, masculine energy can be beautifully expressed through creativity. Encourage your dad to explore his artistic side, which can involve painting, woodworking, writing, playing a musical instrument, or even cooking a delicious and nutritious meal together.
When my dad was alive, we would love to cook in the kitchen together. He was an amazing cook and always prepared some of the most ‘out of this world’ meals – whether it was for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – my dad knew how to fill our bellies up!
My mouth is salivating just reminiscing about those times with my dad and I can still remember the smell of spices and aromatics that filled our home. Those were some good times.
As they say, cooking may lead to feeding people’s stomachs…but it can also mean finding love in people’s hearts. hehehe.
When we nurture our creative outlets or explore our senses through cooking, not only do we foster self-expression but we also help develop a sense of feeling well-rounded and fulfilled.
6. Foster Connection: Authentic and meaningful connections are at the core of masculine energy. Encourage your dad to spend quality time with friends, family, and loved ones. Organize a Father’s Day gathering or a backyard barbecue, allowing everyone to come together and celebrate the spirit of fatherhood. For something more lowkey, perhaps watching a movie together or binge-watching Netflix is more his speed. Genuine connections nourish the soul and bring out the best in all of us.
All in all, Father’s Day is not only a time to express appreciation for the dads in our lives but also an opportunity to tap into the power and essence of masculine energy.
So, let’s make it an unforgettable occasion filled with love, laughter, exploration and the beautiful energy that fathers bring into our lives every day.
