We talk a lot about the power of the mind, how thoughts create our realities, personally and collectively. And while that is true, here's the deeper truth: our heart is our true power center.
It's the heart and it's wholeness or it's woundedness, coupled with the cellular imprints within our bodies that inform our thoughts, which drive our actions, which create the realties all around us.
Right now at this time on the planet, our hearts and our bodies are being triggered to react from the wound and deeply embedded imprints rooted in fear, shame, blame.
Even for those who have been 'doing their inner work' for years, decades... even for people who are educated and trained in mental health, emotional wellness, and spiritual development... WE ARE ALL BEING TRIGGERED, or like i like to say, BEING INVITED TO HEAL our WOUNDED HEARTS SO WE CAN BE FREE TO LEAD AND LIVE FROM OUR WHOLE HEARTS, rooted in wholeness, wellness, aka LOVE.
Choosing to embrace and dive into your own healing is an act of sacred activism ... being the change, the healing, you desire to see in the world.
Which is why I am creating this next three-part series for us at Feminine Power Time all about tapping into and working with THE POWER OF LOVE ... not in some kind of mamby pamby, meme, fluff, greeting card kind of way, but in the straight up, deep dive, get to the root of what is real and true kind of way, so we can create lives, relationships, families, systems, economies, governments, healthcare, and more rooted in wholeness vs. recapitulating wounds.
When we return to wholeness within our own hearts, we will finally begin creating family systems, organizational systems and society systems that cultivate wholeness and wellness by design.
There is a beautiful wisdom teaching that says: Put Love at the Center of All of Your Choices.
What would be true if you did put love at the center of all of your choices? Not the self sacrificing love, where you don't get what you need. Not the romantic kind of love we see in the movie screens. I mean real LOVE. Pure love?
What would become possible of we put LOVE at the center of how we designed our systems and societies and organizations? Not in some fluffy pink cloud kind of way, but real true love, compassion, care, gratitude, courage, passion, heart wisdom, trust?
These are big questions that have the power to bring us all through this. But we have to break this down to work with it practically.
If you want to change something on the outside - in your life, in the world, in any situation - there is only one place to begin, if you want lasting transformation vs. just another lesson from the Universe you keep getting again and again.
Tune into this episode of Feminine Power Time, #1 of 3 in the Power of Love Series: The Power of Self Love to Heal & Free Yourself and This World.
This will not be fluff or ear candy. Or spiritual platitudes. Trust me. We will dive into, get real and open to wisdom about:
Tune into this session on the power of self love.
May it serve to support you to create the life and world you desire.
Love is that powerful.

Wisdom Inquiries from Session
1. Self Awareness: Who am I not any longer? Who am I today? Who am I Becoming?
2. Self Acceptance: What pressure am I putting on myself to be something I am not, to be more than I am right now, to be farther ahead, to be different than I am?
If I embraced who I am and who I am evolving into, what judgement against myself could I release? What would releasing this judgement free me to do/be/feel?
3. Self Compassion: If I was gentle, patient and understanding with myself, what words would I speak to myself right now? How would this self compassion free me ?
4. Self Trust: How am I being guided to do things differently? Where am I being guided to be right now?
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!
And here are upcoming events I mentioned - I've been deep in book edits, so I'll be emerging on March 10th with what's happening this year.

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
Self Love Day Blessings - whenever you are tuning in, remember that taking a stand for your self sustainability it better for everyone and everything.

From Burnout to Balance 40-day Practice - March 2020
Without a strong connection to your Self, your true self, not your ego self or personality self or emotional self, it is way too easy to create a life, choose a career, start a business, stay in a relationship or job that will never nourish or fulfill you, no matter how hare you try.
Without consistent check ins with your Self, it's way too easy to end up 10 degrees off your soul's path.
Too easy to get lost in doing too many things that actually don't matter to you.
We hear lots about body/mind/spirit connection. But where's the heart? Where's the soul? We make lots of decisions from our logical minds, but is your life design really constellated and set up in a way that you LOVE YOUR LIFE, that you feel fulfilled and nourished and sustained? How successful are you feeling these days? Where are you giving your life force? Are you living your soul's path or someone else's version of success?
These are the kinds of inquiries we dive into in today's Feminine Power Time with me, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and MBA... #1 of 3 in our TRINTY OF CONNECTION Series: Get Connected to Your Heart Desires and Soul Design.
The first is Connection to Your Self, the true self - HEART, SOUL and body and then mind. Then we will dive into connection to your intimate circle and your connection to Spirit.Universe.Divine.
I'll lead you through a series of inquiries based on self awareness, self acceptance and self empowerment that will get you feeling and thinking inside about how you want to design your life, work and relationships in the coming cycle.
And lastly as I share these, you'll start to open up to what you are intending and visioning for the new year .... from a deeper place than your mind. So you create a reality that sustains you, on all levels. Sustainable success.
I am excited to share these inquiries and stories with you in this Connection series, going through what I call the Trinity of Love - connection to Self, connection to Others, connection to the Divine.
May this support you to create a reality in which you can give your gifts, make a difference, savor your life, and receive what you need.
p.s. Remember to RSVP for the Year End Completion Ritual at www.ReflectionRitual.com

You know your lungs need oxygen to breathe. You know your heart needs love to feel safe and supported. You know your body needs water to survive. But did you know that your soul needs joy to thrive? And that more than likely due to the pressures of your life, your soul is hungering deeply for the joy it's being starved from. And this is affecting your health, your feelings of happiness, and even your real wealth. This is not coachy blah blah... this is straight up feminine wisdom for how you make sure that you have what you need to thrive in these intense times.
Are you happy? really? Do you feel fulfilled? Do you feel like you have the space in your life you need? Do you feel like your life is nourishing you? We need you to feel JOY inside so you can make the impact you desire to make! It cannot be about all work, taking care of others and giving without you receiving!
Last week I delivered a COURAGE boost to your heart, to help you receive the love you need to feel courageous and be courageous in your choices now and ahead.
This week's Feminine Power Time is a JOY BOOST - I am sending directly to your SOUL to increase your levels of wellness, contentment, happiness now ... not for when you go on vacation or reach nirvana. To make it through these times, our souls need JOY daily. Receiving joy is a choice, a practice both.
So many amazing beings I know are trapped in life designs that do not support their soul and inner harmony. We consciously choose to do this differently... today we dive into:
Consciously cultivating JOY as part of your daily life design and overall life design is one of the wisest choices you can make... do not discount it as woo woo, new agey or for later. Doing so will save you time, energy and money and more importantly will make sure the life you are living in the one you really want.

This Feminine Power Time is a big boost of gratitude and love from my heart to yours... an invitation to take a pause to SEE and FEEL the impact you are making in this world. Because I know you ARE making a difference. Yes, there is more to do, the days you feel like you aren't doing enough, but the underlying truth is that you are making a BIG difference, but you likely aren't receiving the truth of what a difference you are making.
We are more powerful and less overwhelmed as women in our careers and relationships when we can see and feel the difference we are making.
Yet, few of us every truly slow down long enough to see the impact we are making in the lives of others, the world and in our own lives. As a result, we keep pushing, striving and driving, which leads to the overwhelm and burnout we feel.
Women often feel like we should be doing more because we aren't acknowledging or receiving the impact we are making.
I know there is alot you could be doing and you might think you don't have time to really receive what you've done. And I invite you to consider a different way of living, the feminine wisdom way, which knows wise women slow down to SEE and FEEL the impact and as a result regenerate and refuel their passion, love and commitment to creating a better world, without sacriificing themselves.
Join Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor, women's empowerment coach and MBA, for this episode of Feminine Power Time: THANK YOU for Making A Difference: Take a Pause to Receive the Impact You've Had, where we will:

At the root of almost every struggle we face is a lack of self love most people are just totally unaware of this. Unfulfilling and toxic relationships, stuck or overbearing careers, money and health challenges, chronic overwhelm, worry and stress - signs of a weak self love.
Our mainstream culture does not teach us self-love, instead it focuses on the surface solutions - find a soulmate, get a new job, lose 10lbs, stop overspending, find balance, etc. These may provide a short term respite, but the change never sticks because we are not getting to the root ... a weak love of self.
And if we don't know what self love really or how to cultivate it, how can we teach our children and guide others? We can't.
In honor of the international day of Self Love, Feb 13th, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and founder of The Path of Self Love School invites you in this feminine power time to:

“Feminine Wisdom teaches us to be like the Owl who can see all directions but waits before it strikes, effective and efficient and precise. There is nothing in Feminine Wisdom that teaches us to be like chickens running around chasing and trying to keep it all together. Stillness precedes excellence”
Comparing ourselves to others or who we think we should be or used to be is one of the most harmful toxic habits I see in the hearts of women and men. It will kill the most precious dreams, derail the most confident person, and suck your energy. Which is kind of crazy, since you literally can't be someone else. So why do we do it? What's the root?
And more importantly how can you transform comparison when it shows up into something that helps you instead of harms you? This episode, The Comparison Cure, is like a divine massage for your heart and mind so we can knead out the fear and judgment that's showing up as Comparison, then we'll rub on some good loving truth oils to get to the root of what your soul is trying to tell you.
I'll share my best super power tools for transforming comparison from a toxic habit into a self-empowering action, based in self acceptance and self compassion. From my heart to yours, tune in.
