I recently put myself on a personal vision quest, to give me the space to listen more deeply to my heart and to the Divine to get direction and guidance. I often take these super power pauses at this time of the year, a natural time for going inward and accessing more subtle and more profound guidance about one's soul path.
On the last day, day 4, which was all about presence and bringing my presence into it's most powerful form at this time to do my sacred work and create a life that sustains me, I knew I had to spend time with one of the most present, powerful beings on the planet - the horses. I knew they had wisdom to open in my heart and body that I could not get to from my mind and I was right.
I received some potent pieces of wisdom that I just had to share with you - right from the horses mouth:) In this session of Feminine Power Time, I've got a basket of 5 or 6 pieces of wisdom that are keys to how we can:
Simple yet mighty wisdom these magnificent creatures of such presence have to provide us with. I received such a healing and such clarity and guidance. And I am thrilled I can share this with you.
I am fortunate to live in Valley of the Moon in Northern California where we have a very special equine organization called Belos Cavalos, a non profit who works with horses and humans, and who specializes in working with children affected by trauma.
In the 15 years I've been teaching self love, I have not met an adult who doesn't have some version of trauma that has implanted things like fear, shame and stress in their hearts.... that then lead us to the emotional and physical maladies we create oin how we show up in our relationships, work and lives as adults. These horses definitely unleashed my heart. I hope what I learned does some for you too.
Here's a little bit on what the folks at Belos Cavalos say about the wisdom these horse beings have for us...
"Our equine partners act as mirrors of our emotions, reflecting our behaviors, attitudes and ideas. Horses are in the moment and they cannot lie. Thus, they recognize and reflect the incongruence between our behavior and emotion, without judgment, revealing our truths."

Courageous women have risen above the forces that would try to diminish, distract, and discount their innate feminine power and wisdom because they feared the power of the feminine heart - for thousands of years. Not able to 'control' them, these powers sought to discount and derail them.
What we are seeing today in the media has been present on this planet for thousands of years... we just now have a tickers tape, social networks and 24/7 media so that this kind of blatant disrespect and disregard for the sacredness and power of the feminine body, heart and soul cannot be ignored.
In this Feminine Power Time, join me Christine Arylo, as we step out of the media madness where it's too easy to get caught up in the fear and frenzy, so we can:
Remember..while what we see may anger us and try to pull us apart, remember our power comes from shining the light not only on what is vulgar and unacceptable, but also on illuminating what is possible when a woman dares to follow her heart and speak her truth. We each have a part to play - in how we show up, what we speak and how we choose to make the shifts our souls are calling for.
Calling courageous women - to the Unleash the Feminine Heart 40-day Practice - starts in October, www.UnleashtheFeminineHeart.com
Follow your heart. What does that mean? How do you 'do' it? How do you conjure up the courage to step outside conventional wisdom to follow your inner wisdom?
And why is it essential for women especially to know, trust, and follow their Heart Wisdom that can sometimes feel crazy?
Join me and my special guest Shiloh Sophia McCloud, visionary artist and one of my dearest soul sisters as we sit around her kitchen table and share with you what our wise mentors and teachers - wise women who were part of the feminist and women's movement in the 1970s and beyond. These wise women, including Alice Walker, have wisdom to share with all of us women so we can be wiser in how we live, make choices and dare to follow our hearts to create systems and realities that seek to free and sustain instead of control and drain. Tune into Feminine Power Time - and tap into the wisdom of the timeless feminine heart.
To bring more of the feminine wisdom into your life - join Christine Arylo for virtual circle of women participating in the Unleash the Feminine Heart 40-day practice, starting in October. www.UnleashtheFeminineHeart.com
