During the week of Self Love Day Feb 13th I taped the 3rd of our 3 part series on Powerful Questions to ask ourselves as we make choices for the year ahead ... so we can stay centered, calm and clear in these intense times. This final episode poses an inquiry that will take you into the heart of what YOU need to be sustained - physically, mentally, emotionally and materially ... a question that if we don't pause to consider we inevitably will end up stretching ourselves way too thin, giving too much, without receiving what we need.
The word sustained is a powerful word I invite you to take into your heart and life ... the root means 'to hold'... when you are SUSTAINED, you feel HELD... so you are so much more able to actualize your dreams, desires, projects, purpose ... when you are SUSTAINED, the strong foundation under and around and within you fuels the courage you need to stay clear and centered.
When are not SUSTAINED ... not receiving the financial flow you need... not having the home you need... not having the supportive relationships you need... when you feel you are giving so much more than you are receiving in return... your body, mind and heart get wobbly, tired, exhausted and eventually burned out or sick.
SO LETS NOT DO THIS YEAR in a way you sacrifice yourself. The invitation from my heart to yours is to take radical acts of SELF SUSTAINABILITY... as you make choices in your career, relationships, money, health, consider and get real about what you need to be sustained. I think the answers will enlighten and embrace you.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time: SUSTAINED: What do you need to be sustained this year? i, Christine Arylo will

From Burnout to Balance 40-day Practice - March 2020
It is way too easy to overgive and overcompensate in our work and relationships and then get overwhelmed and distracted, and diminish our impact, and worse, deplete ourselves. Especially in these intense and changing times.
Which is why we are doing this series in Feminine Power Time on powerful inquiries to ask yourself for 2020 beyond, so you can stay centered, calm and clear... focused on what matters.
This specific inquiry is at the root of feminine leadership - it's all about taking a stand for your self-sustainability and for giving and receiving in harmony in our work and relationships. It's also about feminine power and making a greater impact in your work and within the lives of those you love and lead.
When you know your part in your work you not only become more effective, you affect greater, lasting change.
When you know your part in your relationships, you stop over giving and feeling like you have to do it all or you are failing at doing it all. You embrace that you are one person in a constellation of people and support that collectively cares for others. WOW the spaciousness and lack of guilt that happens when you really embrace this.
This is also about purpose - when you can name your part to play in this bigger world, you too stop feeling like you are not enough or not doing enough because you see how you are making a difference in what is yours to do.
#StayFocusedOnYourPart - that's the self-sustainability stand.
As leaders, we apply this stand to three realms of our lives - our work, our relationships and our physical foundation of health/wealth/home
In this session, I'll share more about
At the end of the session, I'll walk you through a personal meditation and visualization to help you get clear on what your part is and what you part is not in the 3 realms of your whole life .... and then take a stand to stay focused on your part this year
This is preventative burnout and overwhelm care. It's self empowerment. It's feminine leadership. It's wise.
I look forward to diving in with you!

Fierce Grace Feminine Leadership Weekend - Power. Presence. Purpose. May 2020
Today I invite you to consider this powerful inquiry - one you have not likely asked yourself before: What is Holding Me? I know it sound esoteric, vast, vague, maybe even irrelevant to your day to day reality. But trust me, if you want to stay centered, calm, clear in this chaotic world, you want to know.
Feeling held is the tap root of your courage to step out, make changes, and speak up. When you feel held fear cannot derail you. When you feel held you are so clear within yourself that confusion, doubt, and anxiety melt away.
But what does feeling held mean?
And what is holding you, really, as you step into 2020 and beyond?
And what do you need to know to make sure that just as a tree is held by its roots in the ground, and the network of other trees, that you have what you need to weather the storms that are surely ahead?
One of my super powers is creating powerful inquiries that open up portals to deeper wisdom within us, questions that expand what's possibility and that shift our perspective so we can do things differently.
As we face 2020 and beyond, and I've been in my EMERGE Visioning and Intention Setting process, powerful inquiries that have been blowing my mind and opening up my imagination and intuition have been popping up like popcorn! I've been having deep conversations with friends about these and it's been altering how I choose to focus my life force in 2020. Giving me clarity.
In this Feminine Power Time: What is Holding You? #1 of 3 in a series I'm calling Powerful Questions to Ask Yourself for 2020 and Beyond to Stay Centered, Calm, and Clear in Intense Changing Times we will dive into this inquiry together.
Making powerful inquiries is one of the feminine wisdom way tools we use to gain access to our own intuition and to the imaginal field of possibility, and to Divine guidance.
So no bullet points for you to read here.
Just tune in. I promise it will be practical and relevant, and perhaps shape your choices and focuses in ways that are not only enlightening but truly empowering.
Just as a tree must be held to grow strong, so you must be too.
For you who likely holds so much for others, what is holding you?
How do you cultivate the inner knowing that you are held? And how does that change everything?
With great heart,

Every year in January I wait to do this special Feminine Power Time session until the timing feels just right. This year, it was exactly on the first full moon of the year, a wolf moon, eclipse just as the sun was setting on the Puget Sound across from my studio window.
I’ve been thinking of you all for weeks and what would emerge to be shared on the yearly “Feminine Wisdom for The Year Ahead” episode.
After weeks of being in my own reflection and visioning process, watching what’s happening in the world, deepening in my own practice and listening for guidance from Wisdom with a capital W, once again, a series of ‘wisdom bytes’ flowed out.
Tune in for this year’s Feminine Wisdom for the Year Ahead - 202-, a yearly occurrence here at Feminine Power Time. It’s not about fortune telling, it’s about reading the signs all around us, feeling the knowings within us, and then being WISE about what is happening in the world and how we desire and choose to show up.
Feminine wisdom teaches us to prepare for the intensity, uncertainty, transformation and change that is just part of how the world is operating right now.
Not to brace yourself for it, but to embrace it, pace yourself through it and cultivate the vitality, resilience and wisdom you’ll need to stay elevated above the fray and the chaos.
Tune in with me, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and women’s leadership and empowerment teacher, as we dive in.
See you there!

There is a misunderstanding in our culture about visioning, dreaming and goals setting. The mainstream approach is rooted in the go, go , go, work hard, stay busy culture we've been trained to operate in. So we try to do too much, push too hard, and exhaust ourselves. The more spiritual approach is also laden with big misunderstandings about manifesting, the law of attraction, and vision boards that lead to self criticism & stress later in the year.
There is a different way. One that gives you access to deeper Wisdom that fuels & focuses your desires personally & professionally.
A way that gives you....
This is the way we naturally work best as women and humans... when we stop following the models of success and productivity set up for us, and start following our deep innate feminine wisdom.
In this special SALON episode: A Different Way to Dream and Achieve, I'll share with you a different approach for how to vision, focus and plan your year. So you have the wisdom, the practices, the processes for creating realities that sustain you and that are in alignment for who you are and what you truly desire.
It's taken me over a decade of living this way, after studying the mainstream business world and success models and then the more spiritual and personal growth models, to find this path.
p.s. The Salon episodes are taken from the live Feminine Wisdom Sessions I do live throughout the year. I share the with you on the podcast so you can receive the wisdom. And you can also receive the video version.
