Strength is a state of withstanding great force or pressure—physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.
When applied to a human being in an old energy, strength usually refers to someone who is physically fit and energetic, emotionally and mentally stable, even-tempered and resilient. Traditionally, strength has been most often associated with attributes that we assigned to the masculine—one that is strong, directed, action orientated, balanced, and logical. Qualities like sensitivity, gentleness, and softness were almost exclusively applied to the feminine, and they were considered signs of weakness.
Now that we see a new masculine and a new feminine emerging, we have to shift our understanding to a new expression of strength as well—one that is an inclusive blend of what we used to consider exclusive masculine and exclusive feminine qualities. Our strength comes from a balance among many attributes and qualities, deriving from the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual realms. It is inclusive but not limited to the states of our physical body, our emotional stability, the extent of our consciousness, our capacity to love, the intelligence of our mind, and our ability to navigate between our inner and our outer worlds.
In addition, in a new energy and a multidimensional world, the concept of strength must recognize a deeply rooted connection to self as well as to Source, or God. Without knowing who we are, without loving ourselves deeply and foremost, and without understanding our spiritual connection to all of creation, our strength is superficial at best.
