Whether you want to learn how to radiate feminine energy to attract love, money, or just learn to feel powerful as a woman, these techniques are going to have you embracing your feminine side and living passionately!
First, let’s tackle some myths about feminine energy so that we can be more specific about what it is, and what it’s not.
What Is Feminine Energy?
In life, there is masculine energy, and there is feminine energy. Every individual has both of them at different levels at different times, and sometimes it can change from day to day.
Masculine Energy is the push, the drive forward. It is rational thought, objectivity, the pursuit of knowledge, and the desire to constantly do better. It is associated with “doing”, rather than “being”.
Feminine Energy, on the other hand, is more flexible and creative. It is the power to rest, stop, observe, connect with nature, and connect with others. Feminine energy is getting in touch with our instincts and emotions, and it’s associated with “being”, rather than “doing”.
There’s been a recent surge of indigenous nations, astrologists, spiritual leaders and pagan practitioners who say that world has overall been too flooded with masculine energy in recent times, but that feminine energy is on the rise!
How can you radiate feminine energy?
To radiate feminine energy means embracing what is spontaneous, joyful, and creative. Women (and men) who fully embody the divine feminine power in their lives are excellent at being in the present moment, being flexible, enjoying pleasure, and connecting with others through their emotions and words.
Most people associate women who have a lot of feminine energy as being playful, flirty, fun, spontaneous, attractive, confident, and radiant.
Myths About Feminine Energy
Myth #1: Only Womxn Have Feminine Energy
As much as Wild Simple Joy is a site for womxn, this article applies just as much to men. Both men and women have feminine energy, and when those energies are balanced within both sexes, it makes interactions with those people so pleasant and wonderful!
Myth #2: Feminine Energy is Weak
Both masculine and feminine energies are strong. The key lies in the differences of their strength. While masculine energy is more dominating and forceful (think: planning, structure), feminine energy is a very subtle power, like a river that wears away rocks for thousands of years to create something like the Niagara Falls.
Myth #3: Having Feminine Energy means you’re “Girly”
Don’t mistake the terms “girly” and feminine. These are very different. Girly implies a basic liking for things that are performed by more traditionally female gender-roles, like cooking or baking, ballet/dance, the color pink.
“Girly” is a superficial term and can often (though not always) have underlying implications of the patriarchy and toxic masculinity.
“Feminine Energy” is the term for energy that is restful, playful, and cyclical, and it has very little to do with whether you are female or not.
Two excellent books that will inspire you to embrace your feminine energy are Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ Women Who Run with the Wolves, and Heatherash Amara’s Warrior Goddess Training. Check out more books about wild women.

When we push through, experience sleep deprivation, or reach burn out, we’re dreadfully out of balance. We’re more likely to snap at others, make mistakes in our work, and feel less satisfaction with our lives, let alone suffer from physical ailments.
On the other hand, the term is “beauty sleep” for a reason. Those who sleep enough, rest when they feel tired, and learn how to relax give off a natural glow. They’re more likely to react instead of respond as well as be up for more spontaneous activities.
2. Get out into nature
Getting outdoors is one of the most comprehensive ways to embrace your feminine side! Put down your phone and go soak up some sunlight (or moonlight!). Just wander for a while. Observe your feelings, take a deep breath, pick up some rocks or pinecones and just be content to BE.
Nature calls us to TAKE IT ALL IN, to observe instead of act, to connect instead of force.
After all, she is called Mother Earth for a reason!
Not only this, but nature is known to have many restorative properties and can help you lower your blood pressure, reduce stress, improve your immune system, and boost your mood!

3. Take a detour
Feminine power is all about enjoyment, bliss, wonder, and fun!
Do you ever change things up? Take a different path?
Even if it means something little, like stopping at a different coffee shop in the morning, or wearing something in a totally different style than you’re used to, or going for a walk around the block on your lunch break, changing up your routine can help break you out of the “masculine energy rut” that we we all often find ourselves in from time to time.
You can even plan a change in your life… you don’t even need to take a blind detour in order to reap the benefits! Changing your routine can help you radiate feminine energy!
4. Give other women a boost
Many generations ago, women did everything with their communities: they would sew together, gather food from the fields or forest, care for the children together, or knead bread together. They had a built-in support system and were constantly connecting with each other.
That’s not so much the case in today’s modern world.
Sharing compliments, sharing time together, or just talking and connecting is a great source of healing for your feminine power.
And honestly, nothing makes me feel better than making other people feel good!

5. Wear skirts
Feminine power is all about flexibility, and nothing helps you embody that quality quite like wearing clothes that you can actually move in.
I wish that I could take credit for this tip, but when I was trying to balance out my own feminine and masculine energies, a woman on a facebook group I belong to told me to wear skirts.
They made me feel more like a woman, like I was embracing the differences between women and men in a very natural and unforced way.
6. Put on red lipstick to radiate feminine energy
Here’s something else you can don in order to step into your feminine power!
Do not underestimate the power that make-up and clothes have on both the energy you have for yourself and the energy you share with others.
Red lipstick tells others that you are bold, fearless, and know how beautiful you are! You just might automatically find yourself feeling more confident and strong (in a very feminine way) when you put on your favorite bright shade!

7. Do something spontaneous
That masculine energy is all about planning, executing our plans, and achieving our goals, which are fine qualities, to be sure. But when that’s all we have in our lives and everything is planned to the T, it leaves very little room for discovery!
When you do something spontaneous, or unplanned, you are leaving yourself room, you’re creating space to discover new things about yourself and the world.
In today’s society, we are SO worried about our weight, our looks, our image. We’re told to be modest, to be refined, to not need or want anything, and CERTAINLY don’t enjoy yourself! But unfortunately, this is something that came directly from the patriarchy to make women (and men) easy to control.
The word “indulge” implies pleasure! It implies the enjoyment of something and oneself!
Whether you’re indulging in chocolate, wine, sex, full-belly laughter, riding roller-coasters… finding enjoyment, pleasure, and even bliss are ways to truly capture that feminine power that we all want.
9. Go for a swim
“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”-Bruce Lee
Water has LONG been associated with women and the divine feminine. While masculine energy is more forceful and intentional, feminine power has a flow to it.
Think of Niagara Falls again. That water flowed for thousands of years to wear down the rock to create that mind-blowing waterfall. Few would argue that Niagara Falls isn’t powerful!
10. Wear red, orange, or pink
Sure, these are all warm colors, but there is more to it than that.
Red is the color of groundedness and security. It’s also the color of seduction.
Orange is the color of your 2nd or sacral chakra that’s associated with your womb and creative space.
Pink is a color of our hearts, our emotions, our compassion and our empathy, our ability to connect with others.
Wearing these colors of clothes can get you feeling bold and empowered in a very feminine way. Some other colors you may want to consider are yellow (confidence and brightness) or green (warmth and compassion).

12. Enjoy your body to radiate feminine energy
Our bodies have so many amazing capabilities! We can dance, run, hike, rock climb. We can give birth to babies.
When was the last time you really ENJOYED being in your body and moving, or celebrated the amazing things that your body has done? Personally, I’m particularly proud of hiking Half Dome in Yosemite National Park and giving birth to 2 babies (1 without pain meds).
You may be proud of your ability to run a marathon! You may love your body because you love having sex.
Whatever it is, be proud of your body!
11. Boost your confidence
Confidence is an integral part of having flowing, warm feminine power.
When you’re feeling down or worrying about something in your life, it’s hard to have confidence. And while, of course confidence can come from achievement (read: masculine energy), it can also come from feminine energy.
Some ways to gain confidence from feminine energy are giving and receiving compliments, spending time with friends, walking in nature, swimming, and meditating.
In fact, any of the things on this list can also help with your confidence!
13. Live in the present moment
Masculine energy thinks into the future, plans, and sets intention. Feminine energy is rooted. It’s set in the present moment.
Meditation is a great way to practice living in the present moment. It helps to slow your thoughts down, gives you a greater awareness and insight, and allows you to release worries and anxiety.
Mindfulness is another way. Put down your phone. Stop multitasking. Be intentional with your interactions with others.
14. Play and have fun to radiate feminine energy
Being silly, fun, and releasing your desire for appearing refined and perfect can be just the kind of feminine power you’re looking for in your life.
When we’re able to release our desire to uphold the patriarchy’s expectations of us, we start to find a lot more passion, childlike wonder, confidence, and pleasure in our lives, and as we read above, these things are all feminine in nature.
Often times, other women are looking for the same kind of release, so don’t worry about being judged! It’s time that we let go, had fun, and embraced our silly sides!
Just like in the example above, feminine power lies in knowing when to let go. And believe me, this is not easy.
Surrender means a deep trust in yourself and in the energy of God or the Universe or fate, or whatever you believe in. Letting go gives you so much power over your life and it makes room for new, wondrous things.
“Surrender is a journey from outer turmoil to inner peace.”Sri Chinmoy
So if you feel that you’ve been struggling, drowning, or fighting too much in your life, think about what it is that you’ve been fighting and how you can learn to release it to benefit the natural progress of your life. Let it go!
These 15 techniques will help you learn to radiate feminine energy and embrace the feminine power in your life! You’ll feel more confident, balanced, and you may even attract someone into your life that complements your energy!
