“We have become so self-sufficient as women that we often don’t consider the support we need, and even when it does show up, we struggle to fully receive it.”
These are the words that start Chapter 8 in my book Overwhelmed and Over It which is the chapter that gets to the root about why we push away support or don't receive the support we need, and then up burned out, and stretched too thin.
In this 3-part series, Receive the Support You Desire & Require this Year, we take a stand together to get real and practical about how we ensure you DO get the support you need, require and desire, and/or make different choices based on the resources you have.
I was going to do this as one episode, but when I felt into what would really serve us, a deeper dive into you FEELING and BEING supported on all levels came through loud and clear.
In Part 1 we will explore and dive into some of the key wisdom teachings that create the foundation for support to actually show up in and grow in your life, including:
Throughout the series, we will create space for you to tune into 5 different realms you have the power to be and feel more supported, from the inside out. These just all happen to begin with the letter P.
They all reflect the FOUNDATIONS of SUPPORT we all need at this time.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time we will explore PRACTICE + PLAY, including the structures and support that will:
Tune in. Share with a Friend. Then Support each other to receive the support you desire and require.

STAY LIGHT. These are the two words that will frame and focus this series, with the intention of supporting you to restore your "radiance" levels to be bright and vibrant, and then keep that brightness and lightness strong, growing and glowing the rest of this year.
RADIANCE is one of those words we hear but why does it really matter? Wouldn't it be better just to focus on self-care, wellness and stress-management? Well if you want more "to dos" sure, you can go that way.
Or you can go deeper to get what is at the roots of what keeps your wellbeing strong - mind, body AND spirit and heart. Like instead of focusing on the leaves of the tree, you get into what's happening inside the trunk and within the roots and soil that allows that tree to stand tall, strong and briliant even in stormy weather.
Radiance is defined in the dictionary as brightness and lightness. And there is SO much more!
In episode #1 of 3 in our STAY LIGHT series we will dive into:
We'll pose this central question for you to contemplate and give you creative processes to reveal practical wisdom you can apply to how you structure and make choices these next few months.
"What sustains and supports my radiance?"
I will share some of the common things that support and restore our radiance such as these wisdom bites from two beings whose work I respect very much:
"Radiance is a function of stillness." - Ariel Spilsbury
"Radiance acts as a hidden instrument of your intuition." - Richard Rudd
Lastly, I'll lead you through a meditation and visualiization that starts the creative juices flowing of what lifts you up and lightens you up in 7 areas of the foundation of our radiance.
And share how you can take this and create what I call the "Radiance Wheel" - which will support you not to do more, but to put structures in place and make choices to keep your light shining and wellbeing glowing, for many months and years to come.
As leaders, change makers, beings daring to do things different to create a better more beautiful world, we need to Stay Light, even in, especially in the face of challenge and chaos.
It's HOW we lead and live through this time.
See you there

1. Flow Power Pause - starts June 22 - Register at www.FlowPowerPause.com
Why do we consume things that are not good for our bodies? That make us feel sluggish, heavy, not at our best? Why do we believe that doing another diet, cleanse, or fast is going to finally be the trick? What if there were deeper reasons, unknown reasons to you, that drove the sabotaging choices that you make about what you put in, on and within your body? There are!
In this Feminine Power Time, the 3rd in our 3 part series on Receiving, I knew we had to dive into how a lack of receiving what we need in other areas of our lives, drives our choices for how we consume food, liquids, media, everything. And how a lack of receiving the wisdom we need vs. more information on the latest diet or super food or quick fix is keeping us from the wisdom of how our bodies really work as women.
So I invited a new wise woman sister to join us - a true sacred rebel, here to do things differently, Ms. Carly Pollack, author of the book "Feed Your Soul" and founder of Nutritional Wisdom to dive in deep with us and illuminate both the deeper reasons within ourselves and the hidden reasons in the overculture that keep us from having the vibrant, radiant, healthy bodies we desire.
I invite you to tune in, as we dive into this episode "Feed Your Soul Instead of Sabotage Your Body" and OPEN TO RECEIVE more of the wisdom and self-love you need to make choices that support you vs sabotage you.
In our conversation today we dive into:
It's a rich conversation with lots of #wisdombytes and inspiration. You will feel more open and more connected to yourself. Come and join us!
What is on your plate reflects your inner state #femininepowertime #carlypollack
Before you put something in your mouth to eat, ask "What is it that I need"
Release sugar. Receive sweetness.

Self care is one thing. Feeding the Feminine First takes getting what YOU need on a daily basis to an entirely new, deeper level. The truth is you already know how to take care of yourself.
The challenge is in giving yourself PERMISSION to receive what you need & in finding SMALL BUT MIGHTY ways to nourish, nurture, and get what you need in the midst of taking care of so much. Feeding the Feminine First is an invitation to doing your life differently in small ways that have a big impact.
Christine Arylo shares a new perspective on self-care that goes beyond the mental into the spiritual, sharing insights and small rituals you can do daily and monthly to nourish & nurture yourself.
Includes a meditation to check in on where you are feeling depleted & where you are thriving and an invitation to join women around the world, choosing to embrace what Feeding the Feminine First means.

If we are going to meet the demands of our lives, the intensity of our times and succeed at creating the work, lives and relationships we desire, without draining ourselves, trying to manage stress, or get to the gym everyday isn't going to cut it.
We need practices that literally generate and cultivate VITALITY. But what does that even mean?
Vitality is defined as 'the power to live or grow' ... 'exuberant physical strength and mental vigor'... 'capacity for the continuation of a meaningful or purposeful existence.'
Good yes? We all need it and desire it, but few of us unless you have sought out training have the wisdom and the practices we need. This goes beyond green drink and being able to do a headstand in yoga class and stress management classes.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time "Vitality for Victory" host Christine Arylo shares ancient wisdom for your thriving in your modern life, including:
Fun, powerful, illuminating. Tune in.
And join Christine for these deeper intensive trainings to cultivate the energy and vitality you need to thrive.

Daily, your body needs to recharge. Your mind needs to rest. Your spirit to restore. But 8 hours of sleep a night won't do it. The yogis have known for thousands of years that it's the KIND OF sleep and rest you get that matters - you need DEEP rest to recharge. But most of us never get there because the habits and rituals we have the 4 hours before we go to sleep don't give us the space, time and rhythm we need to what's called in feminine wisdom 'DOWNSHIFT'.
In this Feminine Power Time, Christine Arylo shares a new way to think about how you wind down your day - Daily Downshifting. Rather than waiting to an hour before bed, Arylo shares the 3 phases of daily downshifting, which begin hours before bedtime, by signaling to your body and mind that it's time to start winding down work to nourish your body.
In this Feminine Power Time you'll gain ancient wisdom modified for your modern life, including:
The Superwoman Sob: the phenomenon of finding oneself in a stream of tears due to the sheer amount of pressure, stress, burden, and overwhelm you feel under. There are warning signs that you are on the brink of a Super Woman Sob. Tap into divine feminine wisdom and learn to use the pressure as a catalyst to liberate yourself from the burden & create a different, more supportive and sustainable reality. For more simple yet mighty practices, get the Feminine Super Power Kit with Christinearylo.com
Why do you feel overwhelmed? And more importantly, how do you stop the stress? Christine Arylo shares ancient wisdom modified for modern life on how to prevent overwhelm, release stress, tap into feminine power and make sure you are taking care of yourself in the midst of a busy life. Includes meditation and reflection and divine feminine practice. Choose self love and self care over self neglect.
