It's time for a Power Pause! 4 Inquiries to Ask Yourself To Feel Your Impact, Focus Your Work for the Months Ahead & Reset Imbalances in Work or Relationships
Vernal March 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 to create.
It’s also the time to consider HOW to focus your life force, time, and resources in your work, relationships and personal desires.
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.
And you gain clarity on how to focus your life force so what you spend your time, energy & money creates what you desire.
Power pauses are leadership best practice, a wise way to run your business, organization or team, and I believe a must if you want to stay sustained and sane in a world in which we feel so much pressure to do so much. And then don’t have what we need to sustain ourselves.
Every year I hold power pauses at this 4 key shifting points, the equinoxes and the solstices, March, June, Sept and Dec - within my Feminine Wisdom Way training, some virtually, some weekend retreats and some for companies and organizations. I do this because this yearly practice of pausing 4x a year I believe is something most of us where not taught how to do, but when we do it, everything in our life works in better harmony. It’s how I run my life, business, partnership, relationships, and grow what is important to me.
Each power pause has a different focus and flavor depending on the time of the year.
In Feminine Power Time, I can’t share with you entire power pause process for March Equinox but I can give you a 30 minute power pause with 4 simple but mighty inquiries that will :
1. Show you what you have already done this year and how you are making a difference - so you can RECEIVE the rewards of your effort and FEEL the impact you are making.
If you don’t stop to acknowledge yourself, you never feel like you are doing enough, your brain does not register this as a reality so you keep pressuring yourself to do more, and you miss receiving the emotional feelings that come with recognizing your impact that fills you up, and gives you fuel for what is to come.
2. Reveal the imbalances in your work, relationships and patterns so you can re-balance the exchange of what you are giving and what you are receiving.
Equinox is the time to pause and really take a look at where the exchange between what you are giving to your work, relationships, projects, people, mission, are in harmony and where they are out of harmony. One big way you create overwhelm for yourself is over giving and under receiving. This creates financial stress, health stress, relational stress, all the stuff you don’t want into your life. So you reveal the imbalances and then take empowered action to shift them.
3. Name what you really desire to focus your energy on in your work and your relationships that may not be profitable or productive, but that you know would light you up or would help you create the new reality you desire for yourself.
Most people never get to their deeper heart and soul’s desires because their lives are packed too full, they are too busy. Or they feel the stress to make money and so don’t feel they have the space to work on things that are not money making. But in the feminine wisdom way, we believe that we must create space for these projects and relationships that are like deeper callings from our heart and soul that fuel the expression and elevation of our work and life.
Bonus. We release a habit or pattern that doesn’t serve us any longer as we go into the next season - we don’t give up everything or go militant. We choose a few things to elevate and release, and also receive pleasure too.

I am always over the moon thrilled when Spring Equinox rolls around - the vernal equinox which used to be the start of our calendar year before the calendar was changed by humans. It's the time on the planet where naturally things start to emerge, to sprout, to come up after a winter slumber. But in our mainstream world, we've already been hustling and working hard for months.
It's the time when if we were farmers we would plant our crops, choose what we were to grow and then work it equinox to equinox to reap an abundant harvest. Our work, business, project, wealth and relationships are no different.
It is also the time when our bodies naturally desire and need different food, they want to lighten up, cleanse and purify. Its the best time for elevating the practices, rituals and habits that create the structure and reality of how your life flows.
I never learned this in my traditional schooling or leadership training. I learned it through my wisdom training and my desire to seek a way to have the impact I desired, grow my work and wealth AND sustain my health ... to create a WHOLE LIFE in which I didn't have to push and work so hard.
I have much to share during the Spring which is why I hold retreats, power pauses and do my annual 40-Day Burnout to Balance practice.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time, "The Power of Spring: Using the Energy of Seasonal Shift to Focus Your Work & Fuel Your Life Force", join me Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor, where I'll get you started with:

When we look back at women's history, for over 50 + years since women fully entered the workforce, we have had to assimilate into systems for how we work, educate, govern, relate and operate in almost every realm of our lives... in which women had no say in creating.
The models for leadership, government, healthcare, education, business? All were created at a time when women had little power, no vote, and no voice.
Today, we are in a different position.
Today, every woman - including you - has the potential to be a leader – in your organization, community, tribe, family, life – by consciously doing things differently.
Leadership is a CHOICE you make, not a position, degree, or job you get. Your power comes from your presence. Your presence comes from within.
Your presence is that powerful, if you know how to access it's full spectrum and use it.
