Harmonize. To get yourself aligned on the inside so that the choices you make and the way you show up in your day to day come from the deeper truth and knowing within you. Harmonize. To choose to connect with your higher Self - your Wise Woman/Man/Being" - who knows how to walk through any threshold (change) because it is deeply attuned to Grace, the Divine, Expanded Possibility.
I've been thinking of you all! Waiting for the words to come about what is needed to support us all to stay awake, aware, wise and clear.
As we walk through what is called a "threshold crossing", a catalyst, a challenge beckoning us to change, as individuals and a society, culture and world, with lots of uncertainty ... what is needed is for each of us to stay awake, be wise, stay harmonized ... so together we can rise.
This Feminine Power Time, 121: Harmonize to Rise: Wake Up to Your Wise Self and Let Her Lead, is #1 of 4 in the series on Crossing Over to a New World, not a New Normal.
What we are experiencing in the world right now is like one of those major catalysts that happen in a life that gives you both the challenge and the grace to make significant shifts, quantum leaps ...
The kind that can propel us into a world personally and collectively that can create more harmony, connection and wholeness vs. so much of what we've been tolerating or assimilating into for a long time.
It is a challenging intense time... we need to be aware and with it, and we also don't want to miss the expansion and possibility here for us by running to find a new normal.
Today, we start by diving into our own inner worlds - connecting to that deep wisdom within you ... to support you to get harmonized on the inside, so as you walk through this catalyst you can work with the energy and reality to expand and rise into what your heart and soul is oh so ready for.
Tune in .... let's talk about how to stay present to what is... how to RESET your rhythm and patterns to support and sustain you through this threshold... how to get clear and real about what is calling for you to RELEASE so you can RISE... and tap deep into your wisdom self to reveal what you need to REMEMBER to help you walk through this threshold crossing to trust the process, walk step by step and rise into what is next.
Wherever this finds you today, I am sending you much LOVE!
Stay awake. Be wise. Stay harmonized. Together we rise.

Every year at the start of the year and as the quarter turns I do a special Feminine Power Time focused on spiritual insight and feminine wisdom for the intensity we are facing personally and globally at the time. This year, the intensity I think we can agree just wratched up about 25 or 2500 degrees.
We are in midst of a global, social, and personal catalyst.
Our minds want to make sense, make sure we are safe, know what will happen, and search for information. Our minds are not the tool we need at this time. Because this isn't about figuring stuff out - it's about being with what is... pulling our heads above the chaos to see a greater truth and pattern ... while also creating stability for our human hearts.
This isn't the time to react and pivot ... it's the time to plant and ground and get clear about what you need to stabilize yourself and what and who you care for. To set the structures so you can stay harmonized or get re-harmonized when you get tweaked out, twisted up, or turned around (which you will).
What's needed now is the deeper spiritual wisdom and mystical wisdom that we can use practically at this time to support us to strengthen our capacity to meet the intensity... and instead of holding on to the old or giving away our power to the systems or running back to try and establish normal we RISE UP and connect to a deeper purer wisdom that seeks to create new realities.
But first we stabilize and harmonize ourselves so we can rise. And that is not just about our mind and immune systems. Hearts, nervous systems and magnetic fields too.
I've been waiting to do this Feminine Power Time until I was clear on what spiritual wisdom and insight wanted to come through... I've been listening to what is real, what it needed and what our human hearts need.
I sat Saturday morning with coffee in my A CUP OF LOVE mug, beeswax candle lit, and this is what came streaming through.
May this serve to support you as we walk through this threshold.
See you there.
1. How can I stabilize myself, and who and what I care for? (Consider this for the next one or two months).
2. What are the practices that I do as my bookend practice to harmonize my mind, body, heart and magnetic field? What practices do I have to re-harmonize myself when I get tweaked out, turned around or twisted up?
3. What places do I have to connect that support my energy and harmonize me? What places am I connecting that drain me?
4. What is Wisdom trying to show me? What inquiries are arising with a new set of eyes tuned into the mystical and material? (the rise post stabilize)

3. Save the Date - Feminine Wisdom Weekend Virtual Retreat - May 2/3.
In the midst of intensity and uncertainty it can seem crazy to 'pause' ... but it's exactly what wise, sane, empowered people do. It is what gives us the power to see what is real. what is needed. and how to best focus our life force and resources so we are sustained on all levels. Today, I share with you and walk you through a POWER PAUSE - a practice I do and take others through every quarter turn of the year, specifically on the Equinoxes and the Solstices. I will tell you more about why in the podcast.
A Power Pause in normal times is a leadership best practice - for leading your life, your organization, your business, your team, your health and wealth, everything. It's time to pause and
In Intense times, I don't know how to stay focused, centered and sustained without them. Good thing we don't have to.
Join me for this episode of Feminine Power Time: POWER PAUSE: Re-set,& Refocus - #3 of 3 of practices for staying centered in chaotic times.
I'll share more about this practice and how to use it to support yourself.
Also we'll talk about the bigger Power Pause that's happening globally and a perspective on how to be with what is happening, in a way you are prepared and wise vs. panicked.
And how to break down and work with 'time spans' to help you focus in more manageable spans so you can focus on what matters.
I'll lead you through a set of Power Pause inquiries we use specifically during the Equinoxes that will help you re-set and re-focus between now and May 1st or June 21st - Solstice - depending on what you choose.
I included the inquiries below.
Wherever this finds you today love, know that these structures and practices are what hold, center and guide you through any storm. Slow down. Press pause. Let's tune into your deeper knowing and the Universe's guidance.
p.s. If you missed the Grace Under Pressure Feminine Wisdom Session: Staying Clear, Calm and Centered in Chaotic Times, you can still listen or watch it - www.FeminineWisdomSession.com
Choose your time span - between now and May 1st (about 7 weeks, 40 days, or the super power day of Beltane), or June 21st Solstice (half way point of the year). Set the space and get clear these, and then focus here:
1. What do I need to be sustained - physically, emotionally, relationally?
2. What is imbalanced or out of harmony in my life? Or desiring more attention now? Physical foundation of home, health, wealth, practice? Relationships professional or personal? In career or work?
3. To reset and re-harmonize these imbalances or desires, what needs to be released? or re-designed?
4. Where is my life force being called to focus and flow between now and the time span I chose ? In my physical foundation of home/health/wealth/practice? In my relationships? In my work/career?
Focus giving your life force where the flow guides you (give here)
Choose 3 imbalances and re-harmonize them between now and the end of this time span (re-set here)
Claim what you need to be sustained and take the action needed to receive it (recieve here)
There is no question that there is a lot of fear flying around out there... that is causing even the most wise and centered of us to question what is real? What should I do? What the heck is going on in the world? How do I stay safe and well? But also not fall victim to the fear machine that stirs up panic?
In this episode of Feminine Power Time we will dive into the question - What do you do with the fear? How do you clear the fear so you can see what is real? What information do you trust? What are the wise actions to respond to whatever is happening in the world. Today it's a virus. A few months ago it was any number of natural disasters. And there will be more. These are the times we are living in.
And ... while fear will rise up. We do not have to react from fear. We do not have to make our decisions around fear.
We do need to be awake, aware, wise and safe ... able to discern.
This Feminine Power Time is #2 of 3 in our Grace Under Pressure series: Superpowers for staying centered, calm and clear in a chaotic world.
Join me as we dive into what I call Fear-shifting... including
Fear-shifting is a practice. There are tools. Come and learn them.
Plus I'll invite you to open up your eyes to SEE what you might not be seeing about what is happening in the world today.
Question everything is what the elders say at this time.
Let's make sure you have the right questions and practices to lead to wisdom.
See you there

p.p.s. Want more practices to keep you centered - March 29th, the Annual 40-day Burnout to Balance Practice starts www.BurnouttoBalancePractice.com
The yogic wisdom is clear -how you end your day is how you start your next day. Yet we make choices in the last few hours before we go to sleep that sabotage our ability to replenish. We can blame work, other people, money, etc.for our stress but the truth is you and I have a lot of power to reduce our stress and increase our clarity and feelings of calm by the choices we make in the last two hours of our day.
This is the practice of DOWNSHIFTING - the rhythm and routines and actions you take from the hours of 4pm to you go to sleep.
My question for you is .... what choices are you making that are draining you? what choices are sustaining you? Especially in the last two hours of your evening which is where we will focus our conversation at in this Feminine Power Time: Downshifting: Superpower Practice for Staying Centered in Chaotic Times, the first in our 3 part Grace Under Pressure Series where we dive into:
We'll get real and practical about how to use downshifting to get the replenishment you need, and replace sabotaging evening habits with new ones that support you.
I LOVE this practice and every year before the equinoxes, i up my commitment and awareness of it.

Take care of your heart. I just had to do this Feminine Power Time for us - I know it sounds soft, or oh yeah of course. But what I have to share is so much more than some nice self care message. So tune in.
Our hearts are our power centers.
Your heart much more than your mind drives your actions, thoughts and choices.
You mind responds to the feelings and needs in your heart, but how many of us know how to truly communicate, connect and stay true to our hearts.
Even if you do, the world is crazy, so we need access to practices and structures that keep our hearts stable and sustained, so we can stay clear, confident, calm and courageous.
In this Feminine Power Time #116: Take Care of Your Heart - Self Love Practices for Staying Centered, Calm and Connected, I'll take you on a exploration of these three realms :
Including a practice for each you can put into your life for each one.
These three things - self love, sisterhood, self sustainability are at the core of our capacity to stay clear, calm and centered within a chaotic world.
Come. Lets get that heart of yours harmonized!
p.s. I made a request, from that place of sisterhood to Share Feminine Power Time, Rate and Review it. Would super appreciate!

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!
1. Where are you not showing up in your full presence? Where are you?

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.
