As the world turns and shifts, things seem to go sideways, uncertainty rises, intensity & anxiety wratches up, how do you stay centered, calm and clear? How do you work WITH the energy vs be WORKED OVER by the energy? 

These are fundamental inquiries and practices we have been exploring and implementing here at Feminine Power Time since we started this podcast in 2016 ... because we are in transformational times, and during such times, we need access to insight, tools and wisdom to dance through.

Consider this: What if this cycle of time is about breaking free of systemic and self created patterns that no longer serve? So we can rise into realities rooted in harmony, sustainability, wholeness and connection?

And while there may be forces that would do anything to keep things the same, the force of our collective heart power has the ability to lead the way forward into a better world for people & planet? 

This is not wishful thikning or spiritual bypassing. It's co-creating the next while we stabilize in the now and heal from the past. Here's what we "do" ... 

For this last part in our series, we will shine a light on some of the "Collective" patterns playing out - we are all influenced by these because we are part of the "WE" of people living on the planet. When you can name and see these patterns, they stop having power over you, and you gain power to lead your way and others way through. 

Then I will share with you 3 'dance' patterns - wisdom to put it play within your life now  to dance through these collective shifts - these can support us to release the things we no longer neeed so we can be free to create and rise into this next evolution - of me + we. 

Tune in to #3 of 3: Dancing Through The Collective Patterns Playing Out

Join us for this year's annual Mid Year Power Pause - starts every June Solstice - to reflect, reset, refocus-  www.FlowPowerPause.com  

Here's a sneak peek at the practices/patterns to put into play the rest of this year that I'll walk us through. 

  • Be Here Now
  • Take Space to Experiment
  • Focus on Your Part and Purpose for this Next Cycle
  • Preserve. Let Go. Create the Next.

See you there!
Christine

How do we breakthrough patterns and imprints that we are ready to release? What are the practices? What works? How does this invisible transformation actually work to make shifts in the material world?

Consider this: Change takes place over time, but if we can't see the progress, we don't receive the energy we need to stay devoted and focused.  

Good news - choosing to engage in what I call "Sacred Transformation" - yours and the worlds, isn't about waiting until all things are perfect and the way you'd like them to be ... that's a path for suffering for sure! 

Sacred transformation - when you put the word sacred in front of transformation here's what you get: "change devoted to / for the sake of creating wholeness, without violence to self or others, done with respect." This is a way of working with and breaking through long-held pattern in way we can expereince, receive and I dare say enjoy (even in the struggle) all along the way. 

As we see the shifts happening in little ways... we start to feel them in bigger ways... the dense shadow transforms with gratitude into a lighter brigthter frequency that maintains it's depth (and darkness now rooting in wholeness).... and we gain the energy to continue evolving and elevating.

Tune in to #2 of 3: 3 Pratices for Breaking Through Patterns Ready to Release.

And join us for this year's annual 40-Day From Burnout to Balance Practice - www.burnouttobalancepractice.com  

Here are some of the practices for Sacred Transformation I'll share + here for you to explore. 

  • Release + Embrace (Replace)
  • 4 S's - Space + Structure + Support + Sangha 
  • 4 Stages of Transformation
  • Triangle of Transformation  

See you there!

Shadow patterns. Self limiting imprints. Sabotaging cycles and habits. That we just can't shake or seem to breakthrough.... or maybe we just haven't had the holsitic approach and wisdom and tools to get to the roots of where the "shadow frequency" keeps us stuck in cycles that no longer serve us. Or maybe we've been working these patterns for decades, and we are now ready to truly break free + breakthrough.

In this series: The Practice of Breakthroughing Patterns We No Longer Need, the last in our 8th season, we will take a 3-part journey to give you insight, wisdom and tools to:

  1.  See and NAME the patterns that no longer serve you, and that are ready to release to you can elevate into the next expression of your career, relationships, wellbeing, expression, relationships, wealth -- because it's time! 
  2. Break Apart the Old + Breakthrough to the New - breakthrough takes time and structure and focus, for which there are simple models and practices you can use.  
  3. Share the Common Collective Patterns Up For Breakthrough  - so you can surf with all of us to a better, elevated way vs. getting pulled under :)

Consider this: You can't change what you cannot see or don't have language for. And if you are not consciously working with the unconscious imprints within you, they are working you!

So let's embrace our power to transmute (elevate the frequency of) the patterns that may have served us at one time... and are not ready to be composted, with gratitude. 

Tune in to #1 of 3: How to Reveal the Invisible Patterns Within You Ripe for Breakthrough where we set up the series + start to illuminate where to start looking for the patterns ready to come up and out of the shadow. 

And join us for this year's annual 40-Day From Burnout to Balance Practice - www.burnouttobalancepractice.com  

Here are some places to start looking 

  • Where am I chasing, hoping, holding on, frustrated, resentful, pushing, struggling, proving, begging?
  • Where am I OVER-giving and UNDER-receiving -- time, energy, money, care, mindshare?
  • Who are the commong types of people I find myself in relationship with - personal and/or professional - that don't feel good, are imbalanced, or trigger me to chase, hope, frustrate...etc?
  • What cycles keep repeating? In my relationships, work, finances, health? That may have a "blip" up, and shift slightly but not significant enough to make a true difference or be in alignment with what I desire, need and require.

See you there!

Join Christine Arylo for this Feminine Power Time, 4 Inquiries to Get Your Habits and Choices into Harmony for the Months Ahead. One of the four Power Pauses she shares each year, this one focused on what wise leaders and people do:

1. Illuminate the imbalances in the different realms of your life - so they don't become drama, disease, disaster and distress 

2. Shift habits and patterns in your daily life that might have been aligned before, but need to shift as you head into this next cycle 

3. Focus on and committ to the intentions, projects, relationships that are ready and ripe to grow and prosper 

4. Set a new rhythm for your day and week that supports and sustains where you are now, and what you are creating and managing these next three months, into June Solstice. 

When you pause at near the equinoxes and solstices, your internal rhythm aligns with the natural rhythm... you gain the power to reset habits that might have been okay in months prior but need a shift.

And you gain clarity on how to focus your life force so what you spend your time, energy & money creates what you desire.

Power pauses are leadership best practice, a wise way to run your business, organization or team, and I believe a must if you want to stay sustained and sane in a world in which we feel so much pressure to do so much. And then don’t have what we need to sustain ourselves.

Every year I hold power pauses at this 4 key shifting points, the equinoxes and the solstices, March, June, Sept and Dec - within the Feminine Wisdom Way Wisdom School, some virtually, some weekend retreats and some for companies and organizations in which we do "Cyclical Strategic Planning."

I do this because this yearly practice of pausing 4x a year I believe is something most of us where not taught how to do, but when we do it, everything in our life works in better harmony. It’s how I run my life, business, partnership, relationships, and grow what is important to me.

Each power pause has a different focus and flavor depending on the time of the year.

In Feminine Power Time, I can’t share with you entire power pause process for March Equinox but I can give you a 40 minute power pause with 4 simple but mighty inquiries - like a mini Harmony Adjustment for your life

1. Look at your sacred work and career - what is in harmony? What is out of harmony? What is calling for your attention? 

2. Look at your relationships - what is in harmony? What is out of harmony? What is calling for your attention ? 

3. Look at your health, wealth, home - what in harmony? What is out of harmony? What is calling for your attention now?

4. What if you chose to create from a place of joy? What would JOY feel like in you or for you?  

Bonus. What is ONE habit or pattern in your morning flow that isn't in harmony to keep doing into this next season? RELEASE this. Then what is ONE habit or pattern you can EMBRACE and place into your morning flow this next cycle?

We don’t give up everything or go militant. We choose a few things to elevate and release, and also receive pleasure too.

Tune in. 

Listen to the power pause. Journal on the questions.

Invite a friend to do the Power Pause too and ask each other the questions. And support each other to make soul-aligned, supportive, sustainable choices. 

With Great Heart

Christine

Mar 15, 2024

At the root of all the over-giving and over-self-reliance and much of the burnout and imbalance we experience is a big old old root ball called "OVER RESPONSIBILITY." 

We've been imprinted and conditioned by our society and family systems to take OVER Responsibility for the needs of people, projects, and the planet - and we have willingly put way too much on our shoulders and backs, often as an unconscious way to deal with our fear, feelings of being undervalued, and not enough (no matter how outwardly successful things may look).

Consider this: What might have been in alignment to take responsibility for or embrace ownership of as your part, may not be in balance now or going forward. 

Wisdom: The systems (both those you create, and those you work and live within) will take everything you give them, and there will still be more to give.

So... until we take a stand of self-advocacy + stop filling the gaps and taking more and more of the burden and responsibility, there is no incentive for anything to change ... in your work, team, family, friends, marriage, projects, even the things you care deeply about on the planet. 

Which is why we will dive deeper in Ep 235: Releasing OVER-Responsibility. Embracing Enough. (#3 of 3 in Burnout to Balance Series). Where are you taking OVER responsibility for:

  • The people in your life - personally or professionally - individually or community?
  • The projects you created or ones that were given to you?
  • The needs of the planet - as important as they are and as passionate as you feel, you know you are holding way too much of the burden or responsibility? 

And then go deeper to reveal...

  • What is your part? 
  • What is not your part? 
  • What may be your part but you are not sure?
  • What are you afraid will happen (or not happen) if you step back or release? 

Then we end with a two ways to make it practical in your life now ... see wisdom inquires below. Tune in! 

With heart

Christine 

p.s. TWO REQUESTS to help share the wisdom and connect with others.

-- Share this episode with a friend and share the ways you've stepped into OVER Responsibility. Then support each other to get into balance.

-- Leave a review with words that share why you listen or what others could expect. Thank you

Wisdom Inquiries
Action : To balance the imbalance -- What can I Start? Stop? Shift? 
Practice: Self-Sustainability Stands 

I consider what is needed and what I have to/desire to give before I proceed.

If the support and space is not there, I am not moving forward at full-speed.

I stay in co-creation to reveal and proceed on the wise, harmonious path.

I stay present to the real needs and stay focused on my part.

I remember Grace is at the center of all challenges.

I glide from Grace. I move from strength.

Many of us operate like banks that give more withdrawls than deposits, resulting in imbalances in our relationships, wellbeing, money, jobs, businesses and projects that lead to undue suffering, struggle, and sacrifice. 

We OVERgive - time, energy, resources, care, and mindshare -- to projects, people, our passion and our purpose. We UNDERReceive the time, energy, resources, care and mindshare we need and desire. As a result, eventually we burnout, become resentful, get sick and discouraged, or quit.

We don't SEE the imbalance or the ways we OVEReffort, work, extend, etc. until we get to the drama, distress or dis-ease.  

One of the breakthroughs I discovered in all my research around burnout and sustainable success and wellbeing is that we don't have to wait until the extreme imbalance hits our bodies, beings, bank accounts, relationships or brains. We can use the power of Cyclical Living to pause (usually around March Equinox) and take a look around our life, work, relational, & wellbeing design, illuminate the imbalances, and then take simple but significant steps to make shift happen. 

Wisdom: If you can reveal the specific ways you overgive, you become empowered to shift the imbalances.

Which is what we will do together in this Ep 234: Where Are You OVERGiving & UNDERReceiving? (#2 of 3 in Burnout to Balance Series). Where are you:

  • Giving more than is needed?
  • Giving more than is in harmony?
  • Giving more than you can afford to give? 
  • Over extending? Over compensating? Over efforting? 

And then go deeper to reveal...

  • Which OVERgiving imprints are running you, and where are the roots? Then you can make shifts that liberate you from patterns that don't serve anymore.
  • Practices to re-wire the giving/receiving equations & expectations so the exchanges stay in balance vs become imbalanced.

I do this survey of the landscape of my life, projects, relationships, purpose and work every year, because every year there is a new insight and something new to work with that supports me to do and see things differently. Tune in! 

With heart

Christine 

p.s. TWO REQUESTS to help share the wisdom and connect with others.

-- Share this with a friend and share your OVERgiving Imprints. Then you can support each other by giving each other permission to take the action that gets your giving and receiving into balance. 

-- Leave a review with words that share why you listen or what others could expect. Thank you

Self esteem, self confidence, ability to take care of oneself, sovereignty, self sufficient ... these are all good things to possess and embody. Monikers of internal strength. However, when one thing become over-used or valued, or the other side of the spectrum isn't present, things get out of whack, our lives and bodies become imbalanced, and we get stuck in situations and chronic challenges that keep us in survival or stress mode.

Consider this: "We have become so self-sufficient as self-empowered humans that we have become overly self-reliant."

Most people I encounter suffer from this invisible dis-ease of Over Self Reliance, we feel it but don't have the words to see it, and therefore transform it. We become so used to doing whatever needs doing, we don't pause to consider what help we need to do it. We don't consider if we don't have the resources we need, maybe we shouldn't take it on. We've grown so accoustomed to fight for what we need or just barely scrape by that we've gotten used to making do and doing more ourselves.

And honestly, there have been many times you and I have needed support or help, and it just wasn't there. That has been our shared reality. Yet, we are each being invited to shake off the over-self-reliance to find a more balanced exchange ... even if we cannot see how that is possible, yet.  

Ask yourself: Where may I be operating from over self-reliance? One I may have needed before, but that now, at this phase in my reality, is not serving me? 

WISDOM: Where you are OVER self-reliant, you are also UNDER supported, UNDER cared for and UNDER connected.

Today we kick off a series I've named From Burnout to Balance ... to illuminate the invisible ways we are operating like banks giving more withdrawls than receiving deposits, resulting in imbalances that lead to undue suffering, struggle, and sacrifice.

We start with Ep 233: Goodbye OVER Self-Reliance where we dive into:

  1. How Over-Self Reliance manifests - once you name it you gain the power to shift i
  2. Acknoweldging the truth of the over self-reliance and why it's been real for you 
  3.  Opening up to doing things differently going forward - and rebalance.

I will also walk you through inquiries to get clear on where over self-reliance is impacting you. Together we can all release this generational pattern and find the new ways to create relationships and realities that by nature create harmony and balance. So your radiance, briliance and light is supported for many years to come.

See you there, 
Christine 

P.S.->> Request - Share this podcast with one person and then connect and share where the OVER Self Reliance is, what the cost has been, and what it's time to do differently.

Feb 4, 2024

Last Feminine Power Time we talked about the "meta" and "collective" - what the themes, energy and patterns are in the larger field as we go into 2024. This gives us wisdom for how to move through this year.

Today, we turn to the "personal" - what are the themes, awarenesses, perspectives and ways of looking at our lives and our choices within them. So we can walk through 2024 centered, sustained, focused on what matters, using this catalytic time for our good and the good of all. Without burning out, running back to normal or missing the possibility. 

Tune in for this year’s Feminine Wisdom for the Year Ahead, 2024, Part Two. Find & Keep Your Shine in the Stretch.

I'll share with you a series of themed wisdom and inquiries + practices that I'm applying myself and using with all the leaders and communities I work with. 

I will also take you through some embodied integration of the wisdom, so it really lands in your body, being and brain.

Here are some of the Wisdom Pearls you can put in your pocket to guide your choices now and in the months to come - use these proactively + also in the moments when you get the internal wobbles, or the external world or circumstances threaten to pull you into the swirl. 

Themes

  • FIND THE FEMININE. When you get the wobbles, slow down to find the feminine flow - ask, What do you need to RECEIVE?
  • FIND MY CENTER. Get deeply rooted into the truth of who you are. From this centered place, then you make choices, take actions or just do the next step.
  • FIND MY PART.  Know what is no longer yours to do, and release or shapeshift. Embrace what your part is and focus there, without apology or guilt.
  • FIND CONNECTION. Know the difference between growth pains and struggle, and suffering that creates distress. 

See you there!

Christine

p.s. >> SHARE THIS EPISODE with a FRIEND --> Conversate on the inquiries + make a pact to be Elevators for each other when you need a lift or support stablizing in the stretch.

Jan 25, 2024

Every year in January I wait to do a special Feminine Power Time that looks into the year ahead - to give us wisdom, insight, focus and practices for the now, and what's coming next.

2024 is an 8 year - connected to the energy of Internal Strength + Shining our Light while making sure we are deeply rooted into what keeps us centered, stable, vibrant and aligned. It's also a wood Dragon year - which signals transformative growth and elevation, supported by the feminine (water) and strong natural structure (earth). These archetypes + what the natural cycles are indicating + the commonalities I am sensing form the themes, focuses and inquiries I'll share with you.

Tune in for this year’s Feminine Wisdom for the Year Ahead - in two parts. Part 1 focusing on giving you insight into the bigger meta themes + powerful inquiries you want to be asking yourself so you co-create a reality that keeps you centered, aligned, radiant and stable as you let go + grow. Episode #231: Finding Your Strength in The Stretch.

Wisdom to Consider: Stability & safety cannot be created in the mind. Stability & safety can come through the body, which then informs and calms the mind and heart.

Note: If you are listening to this later, no worries, it is still all relevant. 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.

Themes Emerging as we Find Our Strength in the Stretch. 

  • Stay Light. Stay Awake. Stay Aware.
  • Create the Next while Savoring the Now. 
  • Create a Strong Root System that Supports your Stability - mind, body, heart, spirit.
  • Work & live in rhythm with the natural cycles to create a reality that has harmony, even within the chaos. 
  • Let go to Grow.
  • Strengthen your Connection & Practices.

Tune in with me. Bring paper to write the themes & Wisdom inquiries to contemplate (also posted below).

See you there!

There are many things you could do this year, many things you think you should do, or maybe this year you have no idea what to do!? Or maybe you are feeling like you'd rather just pull the cover over your head.

  • DON'T: Let the chaos and pressure of the world, or the should's of your self-induced pressure swirl you up or stop you from breaking through to more elevated, expanded, supportive realities. 
  • DO: Turn inward, tune into your heart and tap into your deeper wisdom and desires. Dare to let those inspire and guide you.
  • DO: Choose to tune into Wisdom with a capital W before you choose your focuses for this year... you know that higher guidance trying to get your attention, saying "Focus here! Here is where the flow and momentum are!"   

Wisdom teaches us to use the power and practice of "inquiry" to consider the path before moving into action... which results in more easeful effort, sustainable success + fluid efficiency (plus delight, which we need during challenging times, to keep us going!)

One way you can do this is the Year-End Power Pause - taking the full month of January to 'tune in' - feel, sense, tap into intuition and the heart -- to find clarity on your intentions, what's in right timing, and what support & structure you need to receive for the coming year.

If we want to access Wisdom vs. just more mental ideas, we need to FEEL not THINK our way forward. CONSIDER THIS: Your mind can only create what it's done or seen before. If we want things to be different, we have to go deeper - into our hearts, bodies, and "subtle energy" realms.

In January, I always do a Power Pause episode that takes us through a series of wisdom inquires to contemplate. This year we will use 2 inquiries, and use them to tune into the 4 realms of your whole life.

  1. What is matters most to me this year? 
  2. Where is the momentum calling me, pulling me, moving me? 

Every year the inquires are different, because every year, we need different inquiries to lead us to the aligned possibilities and most supported actions.

I comb through the inquiries we use in the EMERGE Visioning Process + the women's leadership councils, to find the ones to open your visioning, intention setting & focusing for the year to come. 

Tune in for episode 230:Year Start Power Pause: Tune into What Matters Most & Where the Momentum Is.

See you there!

Christine

>>p.s. BE AN ELEVATOR, SHARE THIS PODCAST WITH ONE PERSON -- Just share, or dare create connection by 'doing' the inquiries together.

Purposeful Patience. What is it? How can we work with it? And why is it something you might benefit from putting into practice in how you approach how you go about achieving your goals + bringing your ideas, desires and projects into fruiition + creating a consistent sense of wellbeing, even during intensity and uncertainty? Just that :)

For the past two years I have been practicing Purposeful Patience. It was the theme and mantra in 2022. Each year I/we choose/receive a yearly theme/centerpoint in the Emerge Visioining Process - like "The Year of Purposeful Patience" or  "The Year of Embodying Radiant Grace." (2021) or "Creating & Receiving from Momentum" (2023) 

I decided to replay this episode of Feminine Power Time: 200: Purposeful Patience: Practicing the Ease Over the Rush, because I needed it again this year ... and I thought you might benefit as well.

I love the practice of choosing a centerpoint and over-arching theme and then working with it intentionally all year. It becomes a guidepost and a portal into deeper wisdom that can support us to create realities that are more aligned with our design and desires. If you stick with it as an active practice, by the end of the year, you have SO much more embodied wisdom, trust and insight on how to do things differently.

Somethings to know about Purposeful Patience.

Purposeful patience is not sitting around waiting for life to happen. It's not a platitude like "Patience is a Virutue."

Purposeful patience is a co-creative choice to live in alignment with the natural flow and unfoldment of your life, purpose, projects, and processes.

The practice of purposeful patience reduces anxiety, the wasting of resources and time, and the self-inflicted pressure that stresses our minds, bodies, hearts, and spirits.  

Consider this: Would you more ease (comfort and convenience) or more rush (haste, progress with speed and violence), hustle (shake, push, shove), or busy (meddlesome, toil) in your life this next year? 

Here's some of what we'll explore: 

  • Difference between easing into vs. hustling or rushing into year / week / day
  • The practice of Staying in "neutral" and 'upshifting' 
  • Playing and staying in the Void
  • Discerning if you are pushing something forward or something is pulling you forward
  • The dance of Stillness and Swiftness 

A few pearls of wisdom to play with and try on:

  • Don't rush into a decision just to have things more fixed and secure once again. 
  • Take the space to listen, imagine and moodle - even if it's uncomfortable. 
  • Inquiry leads to clarity.
  • Creativity opens the portal of possibliity which leads to more easeful productivity.

And two co-creative practices:

  • I wonder...?
  • Am I pushing this or is it pulling me?  

Enjoy playing with purposeful patience in your life - love to hear what you learn. 

See you there

Dec 29, 2023

In a year where we spend 8,720 hours doing, giving, working, caring, creating, mentoring (and sleeping) … and so much more … to  not create space to reflect on all we have done and who we have become, as well as recognize (and honor) our impact, growth & progress, would be just plain crazy :)

Plus honoring feels great!

The energy and act of "Honoring" is one of the most powerful things we have access to, but that we often under use. Honoring is a form a love. It melts away the heavy feels, the judgements of not enough, the pressure to do more. It turns struggle into comfort and possibility. 

I invoke the super power of honor every year at this time because I continue to see the power it has to open our hearts, lighten us up, fill us up and give us a way to start the next cycle radiant & clear, roooted in our enoughness.

We think of honor as something someone else has to give to us - when in reality we have the power to bestow honor upon ourselves, in a healthy way, with humility and dignity. 

There is so much to say about honor and what a super power it is.

In this episode of Feminine Power Time - 229: The Year-End Honoring Ritual - I'll walk you through this honoring ritual that I do every year for myself, 1:1 with others, with groups, so you can really FEEL the honor, shining a light in these three areas:

  •  INVISIBLE: the things you can't measure but have made a signficiant difference, especially all the internal shift and growth, and the things you do that can go unseen but matter alot
  • IMPACT ON PEOPLE & PLANET - how your presence and care has made a difference in real people's lives and the frequency of the planet 
  • INCREMENTAL PROGRESS - celebrating how projects, goals, dreams, reality shifts are more in form today

I love this ritual so much - May it fill you up with radiance, good vibes and a deep sense of how your presence, care, devotion, and choices matter.

With heart,

Christine

P.S. SHARE THIS EPISODE WITH A FRIEND + DO AN HONORING RITUAL TOGETHER. Share what you are Honoring in these different areas for this year. Use the words "I am proud that ... I honor that..." Reflect for each other._____

Dec 8, 2023

Imagine living the full month of December intentionally - connected to what matters, working with the energy of the season in ways that support your wellbeing in all ways - emotionally, mentally, physically, financially, spiritually and relationally. So come the start of the next roman calendar year, you felt fresh, radiant, clear and centered ... ready to receive what is to come.

Consider this Wisdom: In the absence a different option, we often revert to what we've done before or what the pull of the mainstream culture dictates. Only when you have a different choice, with practical application and things to 'do,' do you break free of unsupportive patterns and habits, and gain the power to create the reality you desire to be living. 

I know... that is a big piece of wisdom to take it. Because it's so foundational.

Which is why this month, I'm dedicating the entire set of podcasts to things you can 'do' in December at year end that support you to complete the year strong, clear, proud and connected to what matters .... vs. the alternative of the crazy banana world that has so many options and distractions that cause us to drain our energy, bank accounts, life force, etc. and OVER excess in ways that can never quell the deeper desire underneath.

In this episode of Feminine Power Time - 228: The Year-End Release: Clear Out Now So You're Set Up for Next Year, I will walk you through 3 practices I do every December to:

  • clear out any emotional, mental, relational or energetic "interference" you do NOT want to take into your next year cycle 
  • create harmony in your relationships with people, your body, and your money, so you start the next cycle with more peace, and low to no drama 
  • plant the seeds for what you want to manifest and experience next year in projects, career, relationships, so they are there waiting for you to re-engage with.      

    I'll share and take you through 3 Releasing practices:
  • Release Twiggly Danglers - clearing these out. Choose 1 relationship. Choose either your money or body and action to embrace the twiggly dangler into harmony.
  • Release a Short & Transform the "Feels" Attached to It - choose one short - disappointment/failture/shortcoming that was related things out of your control, professionally, personally and in the bigger planetary reality. 
  • Release Threads of Possibility into Next Year - choose projects and relationships you want to put some energy into now, to see potentials for next year, so they are there waiting.

I so love this practice! May it bring you peace, possibility and power.

Dec 1, 2023

When I think about the power of the last 4 weeks of the year we are completing, and the first 4 weeks of the year to come, I wonder what it would be like if our culture reflected and supported people to: turn inward to their creativity ... turn toward each other in meaningful connectivity... and to tune into their body/mind/heart/spirit for what they needed to restore and regnerate at deep levels. 

I imagine a world in which we were taught that these last 4 weeks of a year cycle have so much wisdom and freedom to give us ... if we create the space to reflect and honor all we have done and become ...

And as we turn toward the next cycle consciously consider what we choose to release and leave behind ... so as we step into the next cycle, we can more fully co-create the next while living the now.

Last year, I realized that I had been doing year-end podcasts and blogs since 2007 - focused on avoiding holiday overwhelm, starting and ending the year differently, living with the cycles, completing the year clear ... so much wisdom and practice there still totally relevant - I put these episodes in the Series Library for You Here. 

This year ... I tuned into what we needed to support us in this bigger cycle shift we are headed into, to elevate the conversation, and open ourselves up to the co-creative power that is here for us ... if we create the space.

Here's the Wisdom I Received:
Create Space for Inspired Creativity + Meaningful Connectivity + Restoring Your Deeper Wellbeing 

Tune in and I'll lead you through this to apply in your life and reality now, including:

  • Lean into & Embrace Creativity. Release the pull to more producivity.  
  • Use the practice of Reflow and Refocus to create space 
  • Create Space for what you are co-creating in the next year/cycle by Releasing the roles, responsibilities, and roots that you no longer need/no longer serve going forward 
  • Create Space for Restoring at deep levels - mind/body/heart/spirit - by saying NO to what subtracts from your creativity, connectivity, and wellbeing, and YES to what supports
  • Try the Holiday Self Sustainability Practice - Choose 3 Harmonzing Words + Release 1 Sabotaging Habit and Embrace 1 Supportive Habit  

It's a juicy way to open to receive in ways that keep on giving, even after Jan 1, in ways that don't add calories or credit card debt :) 

With great heart,

Christine

"Synchroncity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see." - Carl Jung 

I love synchroncity - it's like gold in the bank that never loses it's value, and always keeps be feeling secure and stable, no matter what. - Christine Arylo :) 

When I can see the meaningful connections happening around me and for me, my faith reserves fill, anxiety and stress release. I feel held and guided. So when  get a case of the wobbles, or things seem to be going sideways, or I feel stuck, or I am headed to despair about the state of the world, I can find the threads to pull myself back to center and lift above the fray and connect to a higher frequency.  

Consider this: In the chaos and uncertainity of our world, it can be really easy to end up with cloudy eyes that make it impossible to see (and believe) the magic. Our normal high-vibe, wise eyes which can see what is real can become glazed over or bewildered by all of the goop from the distorted mainstream world. Gooped up, our internal frequency drops into the tanker, takes us off our path, and gives our energy and chi to the chaos.

Wisdom #1: If you don't have something deeper within you, and more real holding you, insecurity is going to invade your internal ecosystem and try to take over.  

Which is exactly why we are grabbing a hold of our practical magic wisdom book, volume S, today ... S for Synchronicity and Security. 

Wisdom #2: When you can see and feel the synchronicities happening around and for you, you start to see the patterns that can lead you to new possibilities, wisdom & realitites.

When you can see possibility + feel the presence of grace + see the magic connections and occurences happening, the fluctations of the markets, the current state of world affairs, the changes out of your influence, start to hold less power over you. They still might cause a flare up, but they won't take you down. 

Synchronicity spotting and actively cultivating the environment for synchroncities to emerge are practical magic practices ... they are one way we can feel more secure in an ever shifting world. If we remember to look for them, believe in them, and actively create the ecosystems they can thrive in.

Tune into Feminine Power Time Episode #226: Finding Security in Synchronicity: Create the Environment to Keep Seeing & Feeling Your Magical Connection

See you there!

Imagine a world in which creativity, beauty, collaboration, & wellbeing were the major values of the society we lived in. A culture that by nature was efficient, created sufficiency for all, and kept itself in balance & harmony.

Stay with me ... this is not a fairy tale or pollyana dream .... I am talking about humans choosing to create societies, systems, businesses, industries, etc. that mimic how the natural world (and we as part of it) thrive and grow best. 

Wisdom: Humans made the systems that make up our culture, which means we have the power to create different systems, rooted in healthier values, to create a culture that can work for all. This starts with our own choices and voices, and then within the families, teams, and ecosystems we influence.

Not easy ... for sure a challenge... but possible. 

In the realm of magic, there are these things called "rings pass not" -- sticking points that keep you stuck in a reality. To get out of the reality that no longer works, you have to illuminate (see) to liberate (free) to elevate (create).

TIME is a top ring pass not ... that can become a "power point."
A power point is a focus point that if we take our "muggle glasses" off (that see through smudgy lenses of fear, scarcity & greed) and put on our "magical spectacles" (that see things clearly) empower us to do things differently.

When we see clearly, we can locate where we have the power to distrupt the current reality, transform & shift the sh$# that keeps us stuck, and then co-create a different reality and world. Starting with small every day ways.

Wisdom: "When you change your relationship to time, you'll not only be more productive, you'll become more empowered to create the space you need and crave. The Wise Ones know the truth about time and the secrets to creating space, and we choose to work with both. " 

Tune into Feminine Power Time Episode #225: Time Magic: The Power & Practice of Moving from Producitivity to Creativity  (#2 of 3 in Practical Magic Series).

I will walk you through a series of R's this week - wisdom + practices - for how to free yourself from the time matrix rooted in a culture obsessed with producitivity to a more natural way to get stuff done + savor your life along the way.

  • Moving from Routine to Rhythm 
  • Moving From the Efficiency & Functionality Wasteland to the Creativity & Connectivity Well of Being 
  • Moving from Fabricated Time Pressure to Flow  
  • Moving from Time Scarcity to Space Sufficiency
  • Plus meditations to get you tuned into your subtle body and magic sensors 

See you there!

Imagine a world in which in addition to math, we and all children were taught about how to work with and apply magic to our day to day lives. Not to pull coins out of our ears, or cast spells on people, but the TRUE meaning and energy of magic. 

In this world, people know, trust and value tuning into the subtle realms of insight, feeling, senses, intuition, grace - things we can't see with our eyes but we for sure feel with our bodies and hearts. In this world, synchroncity is the flow for how we roll. No pushing rocks up hills or over-asserting wlll to make stuff happen. 

When we work with true magic, the elements work with us and with us to create more ease, alignment and grace, even in the tricky, challenging parts. 

You know here at Feminine Power Time we are not waiting for others to create this world, we are choosing to re-imagine, re-design and co-create the realities we know are possible now.... which can also be tricky and challenging. 

Magic helps us notice and recognize patterns. One pattern I see is how many of us are experiencing the call to / need to LET GO and RELEASE things - relationships to others, to organziations, to how we do things, how we think, where we live, how we live, what we do for work, how we communicate, etc (also tricky and challenging .... hear the theme?)

As we get the call to release the old, what no longer serves, what needs to shift, etc. we often resist and struggle, we can get lost and confused, we can give up defeated, and waste alot of life force.

SO how about this ... Tune into Feminine Power Time Episode #224: The Magic of Letting Go: The 5Gs for Releasing with Grace.  (#1 of 3 in Practical Magic Series). 

  • I thought, it's time for calling in the Magic ... to show us how we can go through changes where we must let go of what has been to be open to receiving the new (takes oodles of trust).
  • Bring whatever shift, change, letting go is showing up for you.
  • We'll go through 5Gs of Releasing with Grace, in ways that keep you centered in the now, while living into the next.

See you there! 

Christine

Oct 13, 2023

The New Moon Reset is one of those practices that if you weave it into the rhythm of your life, you won't believe how you could have ever lived without it. It's a must for those of us who choose to cultivate a centered, connected, clear presence and perspective, even within the chaos. 

During these times, we can expect the world is going to go wavy gravy ... that humans are going to horrible things to other humans and the planet ... that the changes we are going through are individually and collectively are going to stir up anxiety, fear and all the feels. 

It won't always be this way (AND we are in transitory times), and there are many other really beautiful signs that humanity is elevating, choosing love and compassion ... the mainstream news just doesn't cover those so much (which is why we create alternatives which do!) 

A question to ask ourselves is - how do we choose to walk through these times? How can we be with what is, and also keep our fierce hearts open, faced forward, our vision for what is possible alive, and our thoughts clear? How do we stay light and lifted when the world or people go low? 

A response is: we lean into, apply, and use the practices rooted in wisdom for how we as people and planet naturally work best. Not as more to do's, but as the HOW we do our daily, weekly, monthly, yearly lives and how we make our choices, big and small... so we can show up as the leaders, co creators and elevators. 

Ep 223 of Feminine Power Time: The New Moon Reset is one of our Stay Harmonized Practice episodes, where I share/teach a specific practice and then use the power of inquiry, transmissions and somatic experience to make it real and relevant to you today.

Tune into today and:

  • Get the wisdom scoop on why resetting at new moon is SO wise (and feels so good)
  • Receive a new moon reset - body ,mind, heart and spirit
  • Learn how you can apply the new moon energy to projects, wellbeing and staying present to what is happening in the world, without becoming overwhelmed and taken down by it
  • Receive the new moon transmission connected to the energy of the super power of Crazy Wisdom - to bolstser up your courage and clear out clutter 

See you there!

Sep 29, 2023

The third part of any power pause is always about gaining clarity about what REALLY matters to you, so you and Realign and Refocus. When I say what matters, what I mean is what matters in your heart, spirit and body (the mind is not helpful in this realm, because it's job is to sort, it does not sense into what is real, aligned or life-energizing for you.)

What became so evident to me in my research around the roots of burnout, overwhelm, workstyle bias, & self-sacrifice and the real path to creating sustainable success & whole lives that foster true wellbeing is this:

Most people make the mistake of focusing on finding more time - "If I just had more time. I need to find time. When I have more time..."  This will only keep you in scarcity, lack and slaving away to the now.

The Wise ones know that the super power is in Creating SPACE within our NOW to co-create the next. 

Which is exactly what I am going to guide you through in Part 2 of the Equinox Power Pause - although you can do this anytime and work with the next 3-4 month cycle ahead. 

I will lead us through a 3-inquiry (plus bonus one) process, including visualization and meditation so you can really FEEL into your heart what matters and

  • Stay present to what is happening in your NOW so you can savor what you are harvesting, and truly find joy and feel fulfilled in the process 
  • Name what is wanting and needing to shift, so you can make space for the next, in your now
  • Name WHAT you desire space for - give specific heart felt  language to it and then CLAIM that space with fierce self-advocacy
  • Put the structure and support in place + name the next few steps to make this space a reality that you get to PLAY in!

See you there!

Wise beings know how to use the natural cycles of the earth and universe to support us to grow our work, wealth and relationships, and to support our health, and keep us focused on what matters.

Which is why one of my top three pratices for staying out of burnout and overwhelm and stay on the path of sustainable success, impact and wellbeing in the "Power Pause" + why I created the next two episodes for you, which are really more like a mini retreat. 

Power pauses are an elevated leadership best practice we do quarterly, at the Equinoxes and Solstices, the natural shifting times. Equinoxes are all about illuminating imbalances, shifting habits to restore wellbeing, and re-focusing your priorities and intentions for the next quarter.

The theme of Sept Equinox is always Harvest. This year, I added the themes of HONOR +  RECEIVE + CREATE THE NEXT WHILE LIVING THE NOW - because I feel like these are the energies and equations that will most support us in this cycle.

Tune into this Power Pause and learn some about:

  • Learn the wisdom behind taking power pauses 4 times a year 
  • Making the invisible and the internal visible  - so we can feel it and value it 
  • Honoring the process vs the product 

I will lead us through a 3 inquiry process, including visualization and meditation so you can really FEEL and register in your body, brain and being: 

  • How the energy and effort and focus you have given is returning harvest to you (but you have to pause to receive the harvest) 
  • That you have been stretched & chosen to stretch - so you can harvest the strength & keep the wisdom gained. 
  • You are supported & sustained in so many ways - but you have to soak it in to believe it. 

See you there!

What do you 'do' when you find yourself in a time when the pressure is alot, the pace is intense, there's a lot happening - whether it's stuff you are excited about or stuff that's dragging you down? How do you move through it without becoming overwhelmed by it? 

Pressure and stress are part of life - but there is a difference between toxic pressure and stress that makes you sick and creates distress, and healthy pressure that stretches and supports you to grow. 

The notion that you should be able to stay strong and push through when the pressure increases is actually a program for self sacrifice, burnout, and isolation - one I invite you to release. And instead embrace this as the new design: YOU receive the support, space, and true strength you need, desire and require during times when the pressure is high.

There's a different way to 'do' pressure, and a much healthier way to relate to the pressures coming at you - in ways that are more empowering, human and balanced. There is a lot of pressure that comes at you that is NOT yours to take on, and that you have more choice than you know to say No Thank You Pressure Making Monsters! 

Consider this: If you want to do more than manage through pressure and intense times, you have to be able to SEE THE SOURCE of the pressure in order to gain the wisdom of how to work with it, in ways that empower you to receive the benefits without crossing the boundary into toxic distress.

Tune into Feminine Power Time: #220: Feeling Pressure? What to "Do" When You are In It 

Together we will explore these three inquiries, to shine a light on where you have the power to release pressure, create space, and dance through or surrender into the change, challenge or situations you find moving through:     

  1. Where is the pressure coming from? The 4 sources of pressure - self, other, system, society. We'll sense into each one and shed light on where the pressure is coming from. 
  2. What do you want to do with it? The 4 choices for working with the pressure vs. the pressure working you over. Shift out of it. Surrender to it. Dance through it. Create space within it. 

  3. What structure you need to put in place daily, weekly and monthly so you relax, release, rest and restore during times you are under pressure?  These 4 practices that will get you through this without burning out. Breathers. Movers. End Dates. Receivers. 

See you there! Bring your Overwhelmed and Over It book if you have it to refer to.

Self Empowerment.... Be Empowered... Own your Power ... Stand in your power ... these are words that we see and hear alot more these days, but what does embodying our power really mean? What is self-empowerment? What does sovereignty have to do with all of this?

How do you know if you are coming from your pure power rooted in wholeness or distorted power rooted in woundedness?

How do you reveal where you are giving your power away - leaking power - in subtle but signifcant ways?

I've been exploring, researching and teaching self-empowerment as one of the 10 branches of self-love for over a decade.  I started studying power and realized pretty quickly how distorted our cultural concepts and expressions of power are. And I dove deep into where we as humans, give away our power in unconscious ways. Or express power in distorted ways that actually diminish our influence.

Most of us are blind to where we lack self empowerment or we give away our power, or over-rely on distorted power in ways that don't serve us. All of which has a big impact on our careers, relationships, wellbeing, financial reality - we just don't see the connection with the 8th branch of self-love, self-empowerment.

Which is why I over the years I have created new defintions of power and sovereignty, practices to strengthen both, and ways to reveal where our leaks and strengths lie.

And why I decided to re-run this episode - as a self-empowerment check up! Originally part of the Self Love Series Episodes #178-181.

Here is an appetizer for starters - the definition of self-empowerment I crafted as part of the self-love tree:

Self-empowerment is choosing to take care of and responsiblity for your life by acting to create the life you really desire, without apology or requiring approval from others. 

In this episode of Feminine Power, Self Empowement: How Are You Leaking Your Power or Discounting Your Value? :

  • Define Self Empowerment and Sovereignty
  • 5 Signs of a strong self-empowerent and 5 signs of weak self empowerment 
  • Difference between 'power' that is reckless , suppressed or distorted in you, and power rooted in wholeness 
  • 5 Power Leaks - which are affecting you
  • How this all shows up in our careers, life choices, and relationships to others, ourselves and the organizations we work in/with
  • How to speak from and stand in your pure power in everything from relationships to salary negotiations without being an ass or a pushover.

I'll guide you through some self-reflection inquiries as well. If you have the Madly in Love With ME book or Overwhelmed and Over It, grab them as I'll be referencing them in our conversation and exploration. 

And come over the Feminine Wisdom Cafe where I've posted the full definition of Sovereignty and we're inviting everyone to share what Sovereignty means to them. 

See you there!

Here's the Self Love Tree one more time.

Aug 20, 2023

Have you ever considered that while we can do and be anything, you can't do it all at the same time. And honestly, if it's not in your design, even if you make it to your goal, it will feel empty and your lifeforce & energy will be emptied.

The dance between your soul path and career path is where the magic, meaning and sustainability live. Do you know what your soul path has to do with charting your career path and allowing it to unfold for you? 

This is a pretty big topic, which could be it's own series. But I sat with what would most serve us to dive into support you in the NOW while you create the next ... in your career path, your life design and the way you focus your leadership for the most meaningful impact. 

 Imagine a world in which we grew up understanding our soul path... and had tools for staying on it, staying true to ourselves, knowing ourselves, defining success for ourselves, trusting ourselves, and making choices that were in alignment for our unique design, even if that meant disappointing another, distrupting the status quo, or daring to step out of our comfort zone, and into uncharted territory. 

That's what we are up to in this Feminine Power Time: #219: How Your Soul Path & Career Path Dance Together. #3 of 3 in the Align to Your Design Series.

Consider this: The invisible - mystical, intuitive within you - is as powerful & essential as the visible - material, intellectual imprinted into you - to making choices that keep you aligned to your unique and true carer path & life design.  

When you sense & feel forward vs. just think forward, you naturally create in tune with your dharma, desires and destiny.

Some of what we will explore:     

  1. Soul Path - what is it? how do you know yours? what's soul have to do with our career?

  2. Dharma - what is your natural path and essence? why can't you do and be anything?    

  3. Self-Love & Career Choices - how can too much Self-Esteem, or not enough Self-Acceptance & Self-Awareness guide you or distract you?  

  4. Desires - how do you discern between the ego & distorted willpower, and what's in alignment with your heart & soul?

  5. Evolution Cycles & Soul Curriculum - what is your soul path, curriculum to both receive and give? how do you make sure you don't overstay in situations, cycles or orgs or indiv relationships no longer in alignment with your soul path?  

I as usual make this all personal with a series of illumination inquries, woven throughout that you can take into your life, contemplate, journal and conversate them with another to bring forth the wisdom your soul truth is wanting to show you. 

See you there!

Have you ever considered how the work you do and the way you work could be different IF you & all people put your WELLBEING at the center? 

Imagine if our culture embraced that all humans are designed differently, which means what supports our wellbeing - mind, body, heart, spirit - will be different. Therefore, the way we work, and the environments we work within need to be flexible, fluid and responsive to the different kinds of work styles required to empower and enable diverse humans to thrive. 

Imagine a world in which we defined work not just by what we did to receive money, but all the ways in which we give our energy, care, time to a system, including care-giving & creative expression, as well as the jobs & roles we play within organizations and professions.  

Then remember this: You and I have the power to co-create culture. 

Culture is defined as: the total range of activities and ideas of a group of people with shared traditions, which are transmitted and reinforced by members of the group. The root of the word culture means to "cultivate a place" or "to till a place." Like a field.   

Our power starts with choosing to intentionally cultivate the culture of our individual place/reality. Then the family/relational systems we live in. Then the team ecosystem we work in. Then the organizational, community & social ecosystems we swim in. 

Consider this: Rather than wait for the big ecosystem to shift to creating a culture who builds how we work based on what we need as humans to cultivate and maintain a strong foundation of wellbeing... we can embrace our power of "harmonic defiance" and make small shifts that lead to bigger shifts to bring how we work and where we work into alignment with all realms of our wellbeing.    

As Glinda the Good Witch says to Dorothy "You had the power within you all along!" My role is illuiminating where that personal power is. Tune into #2 of 3 in our series: Align to Your Design. Episode #218: Align Your Work with Your Wellbeing,

We'll explore these 3 realms to illuminate the way you are designed to work best, liberate you from what doesn't align, and then begin to take small but significant steps to bring your reality into alignment with your design now:

  1. Rhythm    

  2. Roles

  3. Radiance 

We'll also explore and illuminate what must be present for you in the environments you work within in order for you to truly thrive. It's like being an orca in the ocean ... what needs to be true about the environment, other creatures, & your part in where and how you work going forward? 

See you there!

What is your "design?" What does that even mean? And why does knowing and having language for your innate design and the evolution of your design have everything to do with having a north star for how you make decisions in what you do, and how you do it in every part of your life?

This is not about what color your parachute is, or a what your sun sign is (although fun to know, these surface level dips into ourselves are not the same about understanding the depth and full tapesty and spectrum of your design). 

Consider this: Every body is different. Our dharma, our karma, our gifts, our paths, our lessons, our self expression. Yet, when it comes to career, lifestyle, wellbeing, money, relationships, we are shown images, prescriptions, expectations for success vs. taught how to tune into and stay true to our unique design.

So of course, wouldn't it be wise to know as much as we can about our design? So the paths we choose and the choices we make create the sustainable realities that create the environments that are essential for our unique wellbeing and sense of meaning? 

 Yes :) Which is why we're embarking on this 3-part series: Align to Your Design, where we explore Career, Life, Wellbeing & Leadership Design on a deeper level.

Where your design and your desires meet is the key to the focus for the next phase and cycle of your path. 

The first episode focuses on Career, Vocation and Your Work in the World, and sharing elevated language, metaphors, inquiries and stories to open up your mind and tap more deeply into your design, now.

We will set up the full series with a wisdom teaching on getting off the Do More Be More Rat Race, and back to the operating system of Choosing What's Right for You. 

Here's the 3 parts we'll explore and bring into your life now in practical ways to 

  1. Career -  Your Path. 

  2. Vocation - Your Part.

  3. GIfts -  Your Presence 

We'll also explore your Polymathic nature ... a different way to think about Purpose ... why what you feel called to doesn't always come true ... the difference between putting livelihood and money at the center of our careers.  

Join me for episode #217: Your Part + Your GIft + Your Career Path: Align to Your Design

See you there!
