New beginnings are such a gift - from a new baby, to a new relationship or friendship, a new job, new home, new project or new phase of life. But most of us miss the gift because instead of savoring the process, creating the space needed to allow things to unfold and emerge... we rush in, put pressure on ourselves to hit the ground running and don't take the space needed. And the foundation of the new thing is not strong enough to endure.
Instead of savoring the experience we stress out during it.
In relationship, we rush in to intimacy too fast and give our bodies and hearts away before the relationship foundation is strong enough. We so desire to be safe, loved and to know it 'will work out' we miss the dance of growing intimacy.
In jobs, we start new ones right away instead of giving ourselves the space between to decompress and regenerate. So we leave one job exhausted and start the next one depleted, because the system 'needs us"
In giving birth, we go back to work weeks or a few months later, because we live in a system that doesn't honor human life force, the mother or the need to be nurtured.
In new projects, new homes, and any new beginning, we don't give ourselves the space to settle in and let things unfold and emerge, to savor the experience. We stress the whole way through to get it done, missing the beauty.
In finishing school or finishing a project we complete one milestone and think we are supposed to have it all figured out to start the next thing now.
This is systemic. Inside the systems and inside of ourselves. Causing huge amounts of stress, and pressure by truncating the space needed for endings and beginnings ... such precious sacred time.

One of the great gifts I receive is talking to lots of wise, conscious women and men around the world. And through those conversations I start to see patterns emerge - for what people are experiencing during these intense and changing times. When you see the patterns happening OUT there, you start to understand whats happening INSIDE you so much more.
And instead of feeling like you are alone or crazy you start to see that you are right on track. You elevate out of the swirl or the emotion of it. And you gain wisdom about what is REALLY happening through you, not to you.
Every so often I feel inspired to do these episodes of Feminine Power Time to share with you what I see happening 'out there' so you can use that wisdom to apply to what is happening in your life, now.
Join me Christine Arylo, for this feminine power podcast, where we will explore:
Other Feminine Power Time Episodes to tune into to deepen in some of this include "The Lie About Time" "Are You Supported" "Courageous Feminine Leadership"
To join me for the mid year Power Pause retreat - a Feminine Wisdom Weekend, July 27-29th at Kripalu, learn more here.
Courage - where does it come from? How do you cultivate it so that you have the inner strength and clarity to meet the challenges and catalysts in your life? So you can expand vs contract? So you make grounded choices that are also guided by divine grace?
Courage in the feminine is not false bravado, it's not without fear, and it does not come from the mind. Courage comes from the heart, it requires us to feel, and it also requires us to step forth out of our comfort zones.
When we cultivate it consciously as part of our daily practices, we gain the 'super power' to say NO to what limits us, say YES to what supports and expands us, even if it scares us and is different than what everyone else is doing or what conventional wisdom says.
Tune into this Feminine Power Time - Courageous Leadership - with Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and wisdom teacher, for a soul provoking, heart invoking, and practical revealing and teaching on Courage through the feminine lense, including:
If you are going through a transition, standing at a threshold, being called forth to change, expand and open ... tune into this Feminine Power Time. And stay til the end when Christine shares a special passage from mystic John O'Donohue, Thresholds.

Spring Equinox is one of the four most powerful times of the year to take a 'power pause' and reset your rhythm, patterns and habits so they support you to create the life, work, relationships you desire. When you pause at this time, your internal rhythm aligns with the natural rhythm... you gain the power to reset habits that might have been okay in months prior but need a shift... & you gain clarity on how to focus your life force so what you spend your time, energy & money create what you desire.
Join Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and wisdom teacher, for this episode of Feminine Power Time, a power pause that will:

"Follow your heart." It sounds simple, even trite, but it's anything but. This wisdom byte is DIRECTION on how we navigate these intense and changing times. If you are facing a change, or feeling like you need to make a change or knowing that a change is coming, you can either step in with courage and compassion and grace or you can suffer, spin, get stuck and miss out on the expanded possibility you are being called into, but you just can't see yet.
Stepping in the unknown... deciphering the messages of your heart... conjuring up courage and clarity... having deep trust... these are not skills we where taught in school or on the job - although we should be. As leaders in our lives and work and families, we have to know how to tune into the heart - not the mind - where the answers to the how, when, where lie.
In this Feminine Power Time, the last recorded in her home in Valley the Moon (I'm in a big change) Christine Arylo, women's leadership advisor and wisdom teacher invites you to bring the change you are facing or feeling into this heart provoking, illuminating conversation to:
In this session, Christine will help you slow down and tap into what your heart is guiding you to shift, change and step into, now, and the path ahead for allowing it to happen with grace and ease.
To join Christine at a retreat this year
Spring Equinox at Esalen in California - go here.
In our traditional mainstream culture, we are told we have to build our careers, work hard, and climb to the top - which is why we all feel so overwhelmed and over it, and why we never seem to 'get there.' We pressure ourselves to be there now. Or we lack the courage to go for what our heart's begging us to do. At this time on the planet, we are being called to DO THIS DIFFERENTLY- to take our power back from outdated ways of thinking about work and career which limit our freedom and expression. And be the powerful, wise presence we came here to be, self expressed, doing good in the world and also being SUPPORTED as we grow, take risks, put ourselves out there, and make shift happen.
I invited my good friend Jenny Blake, author of the book Pivot, and another woman who like me has chosen to continually evolve herself and her work in the world in ways that create more freedom, meaning, expression and goodness in the world. We've both cut ourselves free from the golden handcuffs, learned lessons about being entrepreneurs that business school didn't prepare us for, but that the WISDOM sought from other sources did.
Since I am in the midst of a big PIVOT myself in my sacred work (more on this SHIFT in the podcast), I invited Jenny to join us this week so we can pull back the veil and get real and wise about:
Stepping out of the rat race, linear race to the top, "safe" structure is a courageous act ... Redefining yourself, evolving your work, making choices outside of conventional wisdom also DARING. But what other way is there to live if we truly desire to be free vs be trapped in realities that suck our life force out of us?
Join us, tune in. I can't wait to share my PIVOT and invoke the Sacred Rebel, who dares to make shift happen, in her own world and then in the world at large.

At the root of almost every struggle we face is a lack of self love most people are just totally unaware of this. Unfulfilling and toxic relationships, stuck or overbearing careers, money and health challenges, chronic overwhelm, worry and stress - signs of a weak self love.
Our mainstream culture does not teach us self-love, instead it focuses on the surface solutions - find a soulmate, get a new job, lose 10lbs, stop overspending, find balance, etc. These may provide a short term respite, but the change never sticks because we are not getting to the root ... a weak love of self.
And if we don't know what self love really or how to cultivate it, how can we teach our children and guide others? We can't.
In honor of the international day of Self Love, Feb 13th, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and founder of The Path of Self Love School invites you in this feminine power time to:
The Path of Self Love School is an global organization serving women and children around the world through their classes, symposiums, programs and teacher trainings. Find out more at www.PathofSelfLove.org
Take the Self Love Quiz at www.SelfLoveQuiz.com to see where you are weak and strong in your self love foundation.
This Wisdom Inquiry: What is the Support I Need this Year? can alone determine if you will feel more stressed and stretched this year OR more supported and sustained. Think of it like putting your order into the Universe, so that you can receive what you need to support you as you do your work, lead your teams and families, take care of all that needs tending, and achieve your dreams... but this year, you FEEL supported physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially.
This month at Feminine Power Time, I'm sharing each week with you an inquiry that has the super power to keep you out of overwhelm and burnout. But you have to PAUSE to consider it, and use it as a portal into expanded levels of possibility ... even if it seems impossible, you DESERVE to be supported this year, on all levels.
But how do you make sure you get the support you need?
Tune into this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor, where you'll get insight on:

There are SO many ways that you can spend your energy, time, money and resources this coming year - many that will distract you, fragment your energy, or keep you so busy in the day to day grind you never get the space to do what truly matters. Instead of having the space to focus on the projects & people and your own personal wellbeing that mean alot to you this year, you end up giving your time and energy to what is most urgent, demanding, productive or profitable. We are programmed to self sabotage and self sacrifice.
Which is why wise women who lead the feminine way take a POWER PAUSE at the start of the new year, to look ahead, tap into their Inner Wisdom, feel into their heart and get really clear on WHAT MATTERS MOST this coming year... in their work, relationships and personal health.
And which is why, I Christine Arylo, am inviting you into this Feminine Power Time where I will:
To learn more about visioning, planning and focusing your year the feminine way, tune into the Salon on A Different Way to Dream (the previous podcast). Or receive the video of the session at www.femininewisdomsession.com
To learn more about living, leading and succeeding the feminine way, Feminine Super Power Year, go to www.femininesuperpoweryear.com
There is a misunderstanding in our culture about visioning, dreaming and goals setting that stems from the go,go, go,work hard, stay busy, mindset we've been trained to operate from in the distorted versions of masculine and feminine power in our mainstream systems.
Even big misunderstandings about manifesting, the law of attraction, and vision boards of baseline spiritual teaching that lead to self criticism & stress later in the year.
The good news is this....There is another way, a sacred, super-powered way to dream, that gives you access to deeper levels of Wisdom that can fuel & focus what you desire to create for yourself, your work, your family and this world in 2018.
Which is why I, Christine Arylo, held this special feminine wisdom session and salon, A Different Way to Dream. Originally livestreamed via video, here for you now, where we will dive into:
Why using traditional goal-setting, resolution-making, manifesting techniques, and vision boarding can create more stress, pressure and self-criticism in 2018 (you don't want to start your year like this).
The Wisdom Way of using the entire month of January to set the path and foundation for 2018 , so you can create a reality in which you are both achieving what you truly desire + receiving what you need.
How to set yourself up to stay OUT OF OVERWHELM in 2018 and stay FOCUSED on what matters most to you, so you can grow your work /career/business, nurture your relationships, take care of what and who you love, with sacrificing yourself.

Stay out of the fray. Step into feminine wisdom to illuminate how you can best navigate the path ahead for 2018.
As we cross the threshold into a new year - after a very intense 2017, I'm inviting you to take a PAUSE to feel into what is true, what is coming, what is needed to navigate the waters ahead, and how and who you want to be this coming year.
In the wisdom traditions, Jan is the dreaming month - a time for listening to our hearts and souls, to divine guidance and to what is needed in the world, with our beloveds and for ourselves. We slow down to connect inward so the realities we create liberate us to be and give our fullest selves, instead of become burdens, jail cells or more things to do.
In times like this focus and fluidity is key.
Accessing our inner WISDOM - calling to become stronger.
Stepping out of the fray to stay centered in our selves and our truth is essential.
So using the power of the first full moon of 2018 - known as a Wolf Moon - in this Feminine Power Time, we'll shine a flashlight ahead to:
