When a woman or girl knows how to tell the difference between the inner force that reacts from fear, shame and judgment and sabotages her and the inner force that guides her from loving truth, to respond in accordance to her truth, she gains 'super power'. Super power to make the choices both small (in her daily live) and big (like who she will marry or if she will marry, what career she will choose, where she will live).
In my dream world, girls would be taught about their "Feminine Super Power of Intuition" and how to create a strong self trust from a very early age - as early as 6 or 7 (because that is when the other force starts to appear). And then we would grow up as young women talking about these forces, supporting each other to discern between them. We would live our lives as women holding space for each other to sort between what yogi's call the distorted negative mind and the distorted positive mind to find our neutral minds where they say we can know our truth within 9 seconds. We would live our lives trusting our intuition and we would follow it no matter what - even when we are scared or it goes against conventional wisdom or our peers.
In this week's Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo, we'll tap into the yogic and divine feminine wisdom and explore:
And of course we will end with a mighty meditation to make this all personal and embodied. Remember, feminine power is not a mental idea, it's an embodied practice and wisdom.

As part of our series on Cultivating a Field of Love in all of our relationships, I thought we needed to get real and deep about our female friendships. Our interactions with other women are one of the main places we either strengthen our feminine power or give it away, or worse, revert to the shadow of feminine power and use tactics like manipulation, colluding, gossip, blame and guilt or just cut off people all together.
Most of us didn't get training on how to show up in our female relationships from a place of courageous love, to both ask for what we need + use conflict, hurt feelings, disappointment and the hard stuff to create stronger connections with the women in our lives.
For this episode of Feminine Power Time I invited a woman who I have been deepening and growing my friendship with for about 9 years, who also just happens to be a leading expert on friendship and women's relationships. Her name is Shasta Nelson, and we invite you to join us to explore:
1. How to navigate conflict with a friend when your feelings get hurt, or she hurts you
2. How to set right expectations for different levels of intimacy and vulnerability
3. How to know when a friendship is one to grow or one to let go and how to do both.
We'll share some super power tools you can use in your friendships right away + as always we end with a meditation to tap into your heart to see what friendships inside your life are ready to grow and which maybe time to let go.
Here's a little about Shasta.. Shasta Nelson, M.Div., is the Founder of GirlFriendCircles.com, a women’s friendship matching site in 35 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Her spirited and soulful voice for strong female relationships can be found in her books Frientimacy: How to Deepen Friendships for Lifelong Health and Happiness and Friendships Don’t Just Happen!

If we want the world 'out there' to be different. the first place we have to start is inside ourselves + every relationship we have. You've heard the saying, "Clean up your own side of the street first?" Frankly, in many ways it's easier and more comfortable to focus on the bigger issues or on helping others than it is to look honestly at the ways that our actions, words and feelings towards others and ourselves contribute to a collective field of fear, blame and shame. But the Divine is inviting us to do both.
Yes, be a powerful force in the world for positive change.
AND be the love + harmony you wish to see in the world through every thought, action, and choice you make in your interactions & relationship with yourself and others.
I mean this not in some kum-bay-yah, spiritual platitude kind of way. I am talking about how we "for real" practice all this unconditional love, one-ness, serve the world stuff.
Join me, Christine Arylo, for this episode of Feminine Power Time where I will share some of the real and simple yet profound ways you can make shift right inside your very own life that can make big shifts on a collective level.
How can you choose LOVE for yourself over criticism and blame?
How when you are having a moment and finding it hard to be loving to your mate, kid, co worker, the barista, can you re-find your center and respond from a place that elevates the field between you instead of decimates you or the other?
And how does your self-love and your ability to love others play a part in how powerfully you give your sacred work and contribute your gifts to bigger causes?
Of course we will end with practical tools + a personal meditation. Giving you clarity on what your next actions are to take.

The world seems to be getting crazier & more chaotic by the minute. So much noise & angst flooding the field that even the most conscious of us can get swept into the fear and the despair.

The Feminine Super Power of Slowing Down - when you use it you make wise choices, create more harmony & get more done. When it's absent from your life, you work harder, deplete yourself, and make choices that create struggle.
But how do you do it? Why is it so essential? And why this isn't about being less productive or impactful, but about being more sustainable and successful.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time I will share with you this ancient wisdom about re-aligning your life, your body, your mind to one that is way more natural and supportive ... and that if you try it, put it into practice, will support you to get what matters most done, be more centered in your daily life, and give you a sense of harmony. You'll be able to stop chasing balance, and start having it.
I'll be honest - I have had a hard time embracing and trusting this aspect of the feminine ever since my spiritual mentors told me I needed to slow down. I misunderstood what that meant. My inner achiever freaked out. But I've become to understand it is saving my life. I now share it with you. Ancient wisdom for your sacred heart and modern life.

"Your power ends precisely where your fear begins." - Melissa Etheridge. Fear diminishes, distracts, and dissipates feminine power. When fear leads you create realities you don't desire. You work too hard, effort more, create more stuff to do than what's good for you or needed. When fear leads your choices in how you give life force you give out is WAY MORE than what you receive. Result. Overhwhelm, stress, depletion, frustration, sigh.
But...when a woman (or man) clears the fear from their head, transforms the fear in their heart, a choose to lead from her heart, even if it scares her or seems crazy, now that is where our power is.
The challenge is that fear is tricky and it can be really subtle, so most of us have NO idea that we are operating from fear, making our choices about where our life force flows from fear. It is only when you slow down, and tune in, that you can see the fear, hear your heart, and let your soul wisdom guide.
In this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo, you'll receive a mini fear cleanse and freedom boost, tapping into the Feminine Super Power of Liberation and

Sometimes it can feel like you are not making a difference, or doing enough, or making progress on your goals and dreams. But the truth is YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE - you just have 'achievers amnesia' so you can't FEEL or SEE the difference you are making y. When you don't receive all you have done and become, you make choices based on pressure and lack and create stress and suffering for yourself. No bueno!
In this Feminine Power Time, Christine Arylo will take you deep into your heart and soul to reveal and tap you into:

In a world that at times seems to have gone mad, what can you do? How should you feel? What is your part to creating a world where peace is more present than fear, hate, shame and hurt? You can do much more than you think - just by who you choose to be and what you choose to give your life force to.
In this session of Feminine Power Time created during the mid-year Solstice which offers 'super power' energy when you pause to tap in - think sun, heat, catalyzing, illuminating, burning off the old, expanding into the new - Christine Arylo invites us all to make peace - within ourselves and our own lives - and to focus our life force on doing our specific and unique part to elevating human consciousness by the sacred work we do everyday in our jobs, our offerings and services, and by raising our families.
Tune in to Feminine Power Time where Christine will share how to pinpoint how to make peace within and find your part in the elevation of the human heart at this time. Your heart is much more powerful than you believe and even know. It can change the world.
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:
Overgiving is giving more energy, time, money, love, effort to the people, projects, & passions in your life than needed, and as a result you deplete yourself and your resources. In this session of Feminine Power Time, you'll learn the signs of over giving, and the 9 types of over-giving - including over promising, over working, over compensating - so you can identify your OVER and bring your giving & receiving equation into balance.
We will also explore the deeper roots of why you feel compelled to give more than you really have to... this is way deeper than just good self-care. There are all kinds of crazy out-of-balance equations running our internal operating systems that we need to rewire so we can stop operating like banks that only give out withdrawls, instead of taking in deposits.
We'll end with a short but mighty meditation to see where you are over-giving in your life right now, and then I'll share a super power practice for restoring balance in your personal relationships and work life.
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.
How do you show up as a 'powerful presence' that doesn't have to exert power or try to be powerful, but just IS powerful? Most of us were trained to operated from our 'distorted' power centers, so we blame, manipulate, push, control, and as a result don't really get what we need, or show up as the person we want to be. We try to appear powerful or exert power, but because the power is not centered in our body or connected to our true presence, we get feedback or results that don't align with the truth of who we really are inside. There is another center of power within you, the feminine power center of Fierce Grace. In this podcast, explore with Christine Arylo, the nature of distorted masculine power and feminine power, and try on a new kind of power, the feminine super power of Fierce Grace, so you can speak up, stand up, and show up as the powerful being you are. What is Feminine Power, really? And how do you use it in your daily life? Tune in and find out.

But how do you get all you need to do in a day done if you don't do it this way? There is a different way that allows you to achieve, take care of others, and still make sure you get what you need. Join Christine Arylo to explore the feminine way of getting a lot done in a day without sacrificing your happiness & health. Includes a meditation to focus your life force on what matters most now.
