I have a question for you: "Would you like to start the new year feeling clear - mentally & emotionally? Like your physical space to feel clear and coherent? Like to be free of some of the relationship drama or distress in your personal or professional relationships?"
Imagine how you would feel if you had more space in the last few weeks of this year and the first few weeks of next year.
Are you exhaling yet?
Of course our answers to this possibility are YES! Starting the new year clear is not just a nice to have - it's what any wise person would do.
But how do you 'do' that? Especially in the intense year(s) we've been through?
My council has been the same for a decade, and it's even more essential in the times we are living in. The wisdom is clear:
You put into place simple but mighty practices that empower to you make choices that lead to you working and living and feeling in the f.l.o.w. (Focusing Lifeforce On What matters.
The practice I will guide you through today is called a Power Pause (a short and simple one). Power Pauses use the wisdom tool of 'intuitive thinking inquiries' that reveal insights you miss if you only operate from your mental mind vs your higher and heart mind.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time: a Power Pause: 3 Inquiries That Will Support Complete the Year Feeling Clear, I will share the FLOW practice I use myself every year at this time, and we do as part of living and working the feminine wisdom way.
It includes 3 inquiries that will help you
I will also share some very specific examples of what I do to create space, relief and release this way - including just releasing 3800 emails in one hour!
Do this short power pause with me now and then come to the full Year End Reflection Ritual and Power Pause on Dec 19th www.ReflectionRitual.com
So grateful we are connected!

WORK WISE + LIVE WELL is the HOW we get relief from the burnout, overwork, anxiety, and overwhelm. How we stop ourselves and the organizations we work in or run ourselves from accepting the grind, the push, the hustle as the norm.
Without new language, models, elevated perspectives + space to practice and trust doing things differently, we stay stuck in our current reality or make it just a little better.
As we start to tap into true WISDOM, we become empowered to use our voices and choices to create realities for ourselves, those we love & lead, our organizations and teams, and this world that are rooted in sustainability, wellness, connection and prospering for people and planet.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time, #170 Work Wise Live Well, #3 of 3 in our Overworked and Over It Series, we will explore:
3 models + 3 practices + 3 acts of harmonic defiance
for releasing ways of working that burn us out + embracing new ways that have the power to create sustainable success, wellness + a life we can savor.
We will explore models that illuminate the distorted and unhealthy way of working and thinking that's created our current society and norms, and shine the light on other ways to approach achieving, succeeding and thriving, including:
We'll also share practices for:

Time. It's one of those things that we all wish we had more of, and one of those things that contributes to the every day pressure we feel under. But did you ever... consider that time is a human made system? Or notice that many of the deadlines, must-get-done-by's, and must-do-this-nows put on us by others or generated by ourselves are in many cases preferences or unnecessary time constraints?
I have spent ALOT of time thinking about time - lol. Going deeper underneath to find the roots of the pressure, burnout, stress, anxiety and driving forces that force us to work and operate in crazy-paced, unrealistic ways.
As I was writing Overwhelmed and Over It, I wrote 20,000 words on Liberating ourselves from the time constraints and toxic time pressures that are just not necessary. We've just accepted the pace and pressure of how we work as normal but it's anything but 'normal' for a healthy planet and healthy humans.
For this podcast, Transforming Tight Time Constraints & Toxic Time Pressure (#2 of 3 in our Overwhelmed and Over It Series, which will lead us into the Work Wise. Live Well. Wisdom Session).... I combed through the book to find three pieces of wisdom + 3 practices and actions you can take now to release yourself from the ways of working that are rooted in undue time pressure and ideals.
Here's some of what we will explore:
To see glyphs of what I am talking about and get the inquiries I mention, refer to Section 4: Liberate Your Time in the Overwhelmed and Over It book.
