One of our most powerful sources of courage, clarity and wisdom comes from listening to the stories and experience and insight of women who have walked the path before us ... comes from asking inquiries that seek to take us deeper into the heart and expand us into new possibility. Our power as women comes in being in heartfull honest no b.s. conversation with each other, where there is exchange, sisterhood and truth. The Fierce Grace talks are meant to be that for us here at Feminine Power Time.
I've wanted to do these for awhile now ... and while ones to come will likely have women talking live...I've now had the honor of being in conversation with Gloria Steinem twice. Once seven years ago 1:1 at a bistro in San Fran, and last night in a room of 2000 in Seattle. Both times she delivered wisdom bytes which have opened up awareness and given me confirmation of what we need as women, as humans, to stay centered, keep the hope, stand for peace and love and be agents of elevation and connection.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time #108: Fierce Grace Talk: What Ive Learned from Gloria Steinem, I synthesized three potent pieces of wisdom, 'wisdom bytes', for you and I to chew on and apply to our lives now. Coupled with some of my own stories and an ending meditation to take this all within yourself. And inquiries to make this practical now to meet the intensity of the world in your own place of fierce grace.
See you there.
Here's a picture of Gloria and I in 2012 when she gave me the first piece of wisdom that opened me up to create the body of work that will be in Overwhelmed and Over It!
p.p.s If you have any thoughts on how to best connect again with Gloria to share the wisdom she shared with me that I wrote up in the new book, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
* Women can't have it all if that means doing it all
* Our power as people comes from being linked
* Gather yourselves
* Imagine your future self walking the path ahead of you. Let her lead you.
* Growth comes from saying yes to the unknown

When you pause in November to get clear about how you COULD spend your energy, time and resources and then mindfully choose where to focus in your work, relationships, and personal health ... you are so much more likely to end the year feeling good about your choices, and so start the year ready and regenerated for what is to come.
This practice is called POWER PAUSING. Wise women do it 4-8 times a year at key points that harmonize us with the natural cycles.
Specifically we do it in November so we don't get caught up in the swirl of the holiday madness and consumption, but instead make space for what matters.
So many people fall into patterns during the holidays that drain and over stretch then - in how they spend their time, money, connection and what they consume.
The holidays turn us into human consumption machines when what we are craving is human connection.
In this Feminine Power Time power pause, "4 Inquiries to Support You to Create Space for What Truly Matters & What You Want to Get Done by Year End." Christine Arylo, women's leadership advisor, in which I'll share wisdom and walk you through a guided power pause:
Sending you wisdom and love that how you give yourself permission to stay focused on what matters and what sustains YOU as you complete this year.

Wisdom Inquiries from Today:
1. What do you desire to be true about your sacred work in the world come spring next year? What do you need to focus on the last part of this year?
2. What will you complete by the end of this year? Choose only what feels empowering and sustaining ... 1-3 things for each realm at most:
* Your Work
* Your Body/Health
* Your Home
* Your Financial Flow and Wealth
3. Look at your holiday rituals through the end of the year -what drains you? what sustains you?
While the holiday marketing and messages promise us tidings of peace and joy the reality is that the consciousness of overculture is set to get you and I to buy more, consume more, and do more. And while we all want more meaningful connection, and the last two months of the year can be full of invitations... it's way too easy to say yes to things because of obligation, habit or fear of missing out.
Every year as we go into November, I take a stand for us all here at Feminine Power Time to do things differently - in how we make our choices for how we spend our time, money and energy so that come the new year YOU FEEL SUSTAINED and REPLENISHED - emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially and mentally.
The next few Feminine Podcasts will support you to do this - full of wisdom, practices and permission. And I also host three Feminine Wisdom Sessions, one in Nov, one in Dec, one in Jan that go even deeper and give you the structure to make choices that support you to achieve and do what matters (more on those below).
For today's Feminine Power Time: "Doing Your Hoildays Differently: Choose What Sustains You vs. Drains You" I'll take you through:
I will be here every week, giving you the structure -the questions, the practices, the permission - so you don't fall into the over culture swirl, or the obligations or fear of missing out choices, or your own self sabotage to over indulge, over spend, over extend.
We need you to be healthy, on all levels. This world needs your heart and wisdom. I'm here to make sure you have it to give
p.s. Remember to RSVP and attend the Feminine Wisdom Session on 11/11: Crazy Wisdom: Practices for Conjuring Up Courage, Calm and Clarity in Intense Times.

Within you lies a great power that you are likely only using a very small part of - your Feminine Super Power of Intuition. In ancient times it was called "The Sight" and women, and men, were killed for having and using it. Women were called witches, whores, evil sorceress just because they could tap into what scientests now call 'the quantum field' to access insight, direct knowing. What does this have to do with you?
One of the biggest reasons we don't trust ourselves, doubt ourselves, don't speak up, don't feel confident, don't take the leap, or take a risk, or we stay stuck is because we don't have embodied access to our intuitive power nor do we know how to use it. And for thousands of years if you had it or showed it, you were a goner. Witch was just an easy way to shut women, and men up.
You need access to, and ways to strengthen your intuitive power to meet these intense times ... to SEE what is real... to SEE what is B.S. fed to you by the over-culture or other people... to SEE what your soul is trying to wake you up to.
So... I created this episode of Feminine Power Time: Get Witchy: Reclaim Your Feminine Super Power of Intuition for you. I literally taped it on the crescent moon, on Halloween, candles lit... let's dive in:
See you there.
Under the crescent moon.
with special thank you to Lisa Lister author of the book "Witch: Unleashed, Untamed, Unapologetic" for the definition of what witch really is. You may never use this word in how you describe yourself, but you want to understand what it means and see how it's been used to disempower women and men for far too long.
with great Heart,
