I'm so busy. I have so much to do! Happy to get sick just so I can rest. I have to work this hard all the time. Moving so fast you lose things, forget things, or your body revolts. Feeling overwhelmed by the craziness of the world. Sucked into the internet, news or social media for more than 15 minutes. Your energy getting sucked up by other people's or the world's drama.
These are all signs you have fallen in to the "Intensity Trap" where the pace you are working and managing life at is not sustainable, but it's become 'normal.' Where you let your valuable energy and time get derailed by the happenings in this world in ways that don't empower you or change a thing, but just rile you up to meet the intensity and craziness.
There is no question we live in intense times. No question that 'busy' and stretched beyond capacity is what we all feel. But it's all a trap - created by systems that were designed to exploit human capacity, distract feminine power and burn you out - physically and emotionally. But like many traps, you often don't know you are in it. Life this way just seems normal. Or you don't realize you have fallen into the trap until you've wasted hours of your precious life force and time.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time "The Intensity Trap"Are, #2 in the Breaking Through The Myth of Balance Series, feminine leadership advisor and transformational wisdom teacher Christine Arylo, illuminates:
This episode of Feminine Power Time is part of the Breaking Through the Myth of Balance Series. To view more episodes, go to the Feminine Power Time feed on Itunes or to Christine Arylo's website www.FemininePowerTime.com
Get out of the Intensity Trap by taking a "power pause" with Christine Arylo at the 4 keys shifting points of the natural cycle of how things flow - including mid-year in June and end of the year in December. Go to www.superpowerpause.com
There is a reason we find it so hard to "find balance" or 'create work/life balance' - Balance in the way it's held in our mainstream culture is not possible, or even what we truly desire.
Balance can't be found, it's not lost. Work/life balance as an equation for success is the wrong equation. It cannot solve the stress, tension and overwhelm we feel because it is an equation that creates a duality reality which by nature creates tension between two things. Think about it - are there just two parts to your life - work and everything else? No wonder we feel like we don't have enough time or space... we are trying to stuff everything we care about together in half an equation.
Using the 'super power' of Feminine Wisdom to get out of the balance chasing game, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor, invites you into this special Feminine Power Series "Breaking Through the Myth of Balance" ... a series dedicated to exploring and sharing a different way of living and leading your life that actually supports you to create the space and have the energy and time to focus on what matters.
Let's upgrade from the work/life balance equation (that cannot get us to what we truly desire) to the Feminine Super Power of Harmony:
In this first episode, The Feminine Super Power of Harmony, we'll dive deep into a heart opening, thought provoking episode and illuminate:
Through her Feminine Super Power teachings, Christine Arylo defines The Feminine Super Power of Harmony as "The ability to create a rhythm to your life – your days, weeks, months & years – that supports and sustains you and allows you to be graceful, powerful & flexible in how you interact with, lead, and respond to all parts of your life. Your life is like an orchestra. Each part is like a section of your orchestra, you are the conductor, and the Divine is the inspiration, energy & tune that plays through you. "

At some point in her life every woman is faced with the question of whether she will have children or not have children. It's a very personal question that we don't have a lot of wisdom and ritual around in our culture, which can lead to a lot of stress, anxiety, personal doubt and shame, and even a lot of separation and judgement among the best of friends.
The very question around motherhood itself sets us up for separation and self judgment because it's a yes/no duality based question, which automatically creates limitation with only two choices. Either I have a child if I want to be a mother or I don't. This polarizing approach to motherhood also puts a lot of pressure on a woman to have a body that can produce a child or can beat the clock or that she can justify a reason if she chooses not to birth children.
Feminine Wisdom guides us to make inquiries that expand possibility and bring us deeper into our own personal truth.
A wiser question - one that can lead us to our own inner truth and feminine power is:
How do I desire to mother?
It is deep within a woman's psyche to mother.
Our feminine energy within MUST give birth, we just are not all meant to give birth to physical children.
Our feminine energy within has a yearning and instinct to nurture and be a guiding supportive presence. We are all just not meant to be day to day parents.
Our feminine energy within calls us to gather and care for others.
All women have an instinct and need to "mother." What if mother was a verb, not a noun?
In our current "overculture" we are domesticated to believe that means giving birth from our physical bodies. There are deep subconscious beliefs and fears that can cloud our ability to truly know what our path with motherhood is - causing us all kinds of suffering, self doubt and self judgment.
We are missing more conscious ways to explore our relationship and choices around motherhood that diminish our feminine power and sisterhood and self worth that I would love to invite us to explore - for ourselves and for the girls and women we love.
In this Feminine Power Time, To Be A Mother or Not to Be? That is Not the Question, with Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and feminine wisdom teacher, invokes an expansive conversation to explore:
And... Christine has invited a special guest to join to share another perspective on the journey. Laurie Jacobsen Jones, a woman who explored many paths to motherhood, first unconsciously - from both ego and soul - then consciously - following the flow of her soul path - including the natural way, the 'fertility gauntlet' way, and finally was led to adopt two daughters, leave her corporate executive career to start a school, and became very clear about what her truth with being a parent and a mother was.
This Feminine Power Time is the 4th in the Feminine Bond Series hosted by Christine Arylo.

*Note: The overculture is something we as women must continually pause to see clearly. So pervasive, and we've lived in it for so long, it's like living in a fishbowl and not realizing you do. The word overculture was coined by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of Women Who Run with Wolves. For the full definition visit the podcast page -FemininePowerTime.com
Even women who have amazing supportive partnerships with a beloved need sisterhood. There is just something about the feminine bond that our hearts crave, our souls blossom from and our bodies and minds relax in. We know this. Yet...
Why is it so hard for us to cultivate the sisterhood we need?
And why does the space for it often get put last on the list?
Creating soulful connections with other women is essential yet most of us were not taught HOW to cultivate the intimate connections we need to thrive. And as our guest Shasta Nelson, friendship expert and one of my dear soul sisters, reports after studying female relationships for over a decade, Friendships Don't Just Happen.
Tune into this episode of Feminine Power Time - # 3 in a 4 part series on our Feminine Bonds - with feminine leadership advisor and spiritual catalyst Christine Arylo and her special guest, Shasta Nelson, founder of Girlfriend Circles and friendship expert and dive into:

To amp up your sisterhood connection, join Christine Arylo at a women's retreat this year - www.ChristineArylo.com
Our strength as women has always come from our bonds to the women in our lives. When the bonds are strong, it's like we feel connected to a timeless unbreakable rope that keeps us safe and strong no matter the storm and we can do and face anything.
Yet sisterhood, true sisterhood is anything but easy.
I've seen and experienced myself the carnage that can come through the wounds our relationships with other women can cause, even from truly conscious women.
Blame. Betrayal. Competition. Cliques. Cutting Off. Maybe you can relate?
Collectively, sisterhood has also been at the root of all the great risings of feminine power, and the tears in the fabric of the sisterhood have dismantled and weakened these feminine risings, slowing the momentum.
Tune in this special Feminine Power Time Salon, with Christine Arylo and special female leaders spanning 3 generation and 3 continents, as we explore:
* How the shadow in female relationships and pressure from outside systems weakened the feminine movement of the 1960's and 70s's and caused the momentum to wane (so we don't repeat the pattern)
* The ABCs of Sisterhood that weaken and destroy our bonds - from Accusation to Blame and Betrayal to Competition and Collusion. Why it happens, the truth of how it harms the feminine heart, and what we can do instead.
* Where and how we as women are unconscious to how the outside systems and our own internal systems use the shadow of the feminine to weaken our bonds
* How to heal the past wounds of betrayal, blame, separation or isolation - within your own heart and for the collective
* How we can work with these shadow qualities of sisterhood when they show up in our friendships and communities
To experience transforming the ABC's of Sisterhood in your own heart - you can join Christine Arylo and Shiloh Sophia McCloud for the "Wise Woman Out of Exile" transformational workshop - virtually from your home. Go to www.FeminineUnbound.com

About Feminine Power Time Salons - The salon format is one that allows for us to bring a specific topic to dive into with a group of women who bring different perspectives and thoughts with the intention of provoking new thought, invoking deeper feelings, illuminating wisdom and elevating the conversation and consciousness for ourselves and each other. They run longer than regular Feminine Power Times and you can tune in and participate all at one time or listen in and return.
When you read the words ‘mother love’ you likely go right to thinking about the mother who gave birth to you or the mother who raised you. And while that mother definitely has a role to play in our lives, she cannot be our only source of “mother love.”
Mother love is... a specific kind of love that every human being needs – we don’t outgrow the need for it, although we sadly forget how much we do need it.
Mother love is… the deep, all-embracing, all-accepting, nourishing, nurturing, warm, safe, supportive love that soothes the places inside our hearts that feel scared and lonely.
Mother love is… the strong love that we can fall into when we are stressed, stretched, uncertain, and feeling like we just can’t handle what’s happening in our life.
Sourcing Mother Love is not something most of us were taught how to do. In this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo – part 1 of 4 of "The Feminine Bond" Series – we will:

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.

To make shift happen in your daily life, take the 40 day super power self love practice, Burnout to Balance with Christine Arylo www.burnouttobalancepractice.com
I have never met a woman who does not desire more space in her life - for herself, for spending time with those she loves, for doing the things she loves... yet when it comes down to making choices to 'spend time' on herself, women feel guilty, like they should be spending their time and money on others or "more responsible" things, and like it's just impossible to 'find the time' to 'make the time' their hearts and souls crave.... and that literally their lives and health depend on.
Breaking this paradigm of never having enough time isn't just some nice luxury of pampering... our very health and lives depend on changing our relationship to time so we can create the space we need physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
In this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo invites us to:
"If we desire to change this world into one in which what we care about and who we care about thrives, we have to ensure that we are supported and sustained. Otherwise we will burnout. Creating space as a daily, weekly and yearly practice isn't selfish it's smart."
No one on the outside is going to give us 'time' - we have to love ourselves and this world so much that we claim the space and take it, trusting that act will give more to all we love, including ourselves.
The changes have to take place on the inside before the shift happens on the outside.
To make the internal shift to create the space you need check out the 40 Day Burnout to Balance Practice with Christine Arylo www.BurnouttoBalancePractice.com
the March Equinox is one of the 4 most powerful times of the year to press pause on the outside world, unplug from the madness matrix and tune into a deeper Wisdom within to get insight into how to best focus your life force and resources - in your work, relationships, personal health, wealth, home and happiness - for the coming year.
Without pausing at this time to reflect and consider all the possibilities of what you COULD do, to gain WISDOM about what really matters and what will reap the best harvest, you end up trying to do too much and focused on the wrong things - and then burnout.
Join Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and spiritual catalyst, in this episode of Feminine Power Time - a special Spring Equinox Meditation - and:

If you want to have more balance, harmony & vitality, mimic Mother Nature.
Feminine Wisdom tells us that how we operate in the winter - the foods we eat, the pace we work at, the patterns and habits that form our daily routine and therefore our health and happiness - is perfect for the winter (you don't have to beat yourself up for gaining weight or now put yourself on some crazy cleanse). AND...it is time for a shift.
I call this the "Spring Forward Reboot"
At Spring Equinox, which is right around March 21st in the Northern Hemisphere, it's as if Mother Nature sends out a telegram with instructions on how to make the shift in a way that will be loving, supportive and nourishing. So that just as the natural world is making a shift, you are too.
In this Feminine Power Time, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and wisdom teacher, shares the art of yearly reboot based on Feminine Wisdom:

“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”
STAY S.T.R.O.N.G. is the self love mantra we're inviting people to embrace and practice for this year ahead which will be intense and uncertain - we need to be strong on the inside so we don't get swept away but what's swirling on the outside. Not as in strong like the dominating macho or self sacrificing martyr or tireless machine kind of way. But strong in the feminine way:
S - Speak your truth + stay connected
T- Trust yourself
R- Rest + Replenish
O- Own your power + play your part
N - Nourish your heart & soul desires
G - Give & Receive
About Self Love Day - Sponsored by The Path of Self Love School &
the international movement of self-love
Self Love Day was founded 10 year ago by Christine Arylo to bring self awareness to self-love and empower people to stay true to themselves all year by taking a set of self-love promises. Sponsored by The Path of Self Love School, whose mission is to serve 1 billion hearts the medicine and message of self-love. To make the teachings and practices of self love as accessible and applied as table salt :)
Our vision is that if we can teach self-love and make it as understood and embraced as self-esteem that within 3 generations we could create a world where every child born is born connected to love and stays connected to love no matter what they face in their lives... the thread of love stays alive.
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.

Join Christine Arylo for this special Feminine Power Time, a feminine wisdom session and salon where she will share with with you powerfully + personally the sacred technology for visioning, creating and manifesting that goes way beyond the basic 101 level of manifesting, vision boards, goal setting and the law of attraction.
How you start your year is how you live your year - and most of us did not get access to the wisdom and tools we need to create lives, work, rhythms that support and sustain us. We try to do too much, focus on the wrong things, or short ourselves out of our true dreams and desires.
This session, which is interactive, will guide you to tap into your own Wisdom as well as ancient Wisdom and you'll gain a deeper understanding of:
This interactive Feminine Power Salon was originally videocast. You can watch the session at www.FemininePowerRitual.com
So many of our choices throughout the year do not align with what truly matters to us - in our work, relationships, health, self expression, home. This year, what if that changed? What if you gave yourself the space to tune into a deeper wisdom and consider the choices you’ve made and the choices you could make, so they were infused with wisdom, instead of the pressure the mainstream world starts to advertise and put out in January.
In this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo, tune in for some wisdom and personal reflection to support you in creating a year that you love and that has space and time for what really matters, including:

Have you ever considered that the stories that make up our history and the 'information' that is passed off as truth are not always 'the truth'. Or considered that the systems that we work within, operate within and take for face value as 'that is just how things are' are really man-made constructs that can also be de-constructed to create new more supportive realities, for you and this world?
In this Feminine Super Power Time, Christine Arylo ignites our "Feminine Super Power of Challenge" ... a power you innately have to break through illusions and constructs that just don't fit for you or this world, to illuminate more aligned, supportive ways of live, lead and succeed ... now.
As we complete one year and move into the next it's the perfect time to challenge the constructs, beliefs and systems that have gotten you to this point... to tap into your power as a wise woman or man to be a light of wisdom vs. a voice for fear.
You'll love some of the stories Christine shares in this episode about how conventional wisdom is used to control people ... and why it's so essential to have the power to discern false stories and man made structures from truth and how things have to be.
Remember to RSVP for the Super Power Pause Reflection Ritual at the end of December with Christine to harvest the wisdom of the past year and illuminate the path ahead for what your INNER Wisdom - not conventional wisdom - is guiding you towards.

It's way too easy to get caught up in the collective holiday madness and frenzy that is pulling you to do too many things that lead to over spending, eating, scheduling, doing and working. Even if they are things you WANT to do... or feel like you SHOULD do. The collective is speeding up and spending lots of energy, money and time outside while the natural world is slowing down and going within.
There is a different way ... that allows you to BOTH enjoy the joy, peace, connection of the holiday season AND replenish, restore and focus your life force on what matters most to you, so that come the new year, you will feel FULL of vitality and energy, balanced inside, having not overspent your energy or money, or overindulged in ways that make you feel like you have to workout every day for three months come January.
Wise woman employ some very specific 'feminine super powers' that:

I believe we are the ones here at this time to be part of a great awakening on this planet, and awakenings are often not easy.
It’s HOW we respond to what is happening in our world, families, communities and systems, whether it’s an election, water and oil rights, the way we do business, how we raise and educate our children, how we come together in true sisterhood or not – that is the deciding factor of how this will unfold.
The ancient sages predicted we would come as a people to this time of unrest.
Change often requires a catalyst, a bolt of lightening to quicken the shift. But the HOW we get there is not pre-determined. We are the ones who will lead the way. YOU are the one who will lead the way.
We each have a part to play. Never diminish or discount the importance of your part, no matter how small it may seem.
Many sages have said that when the women truly come together the great shift will occur. And while we have made much progress in this way, one only has to turn on reality TV, look at Twitter feeds, look around her own circle of friends and family to see as women we are still divided in many ways.
I called this circle in sisterhood. For the hearts of women and girls worldwide. We each have a part to play.

And if you’d like to go deeper into exploring feminine wisdom with like-minded sisters who believe in the power of connection and sisterhood, here are some upcoming events to mark on your calendar. More details will be coming soon…
* Feminine Super Power Year – Activate Your Feminine Power + Attune to a more natural & sustainable rhythm – Starts December 2016
* Visioning 2017 Online Retreat – Starts Jan 12th
* Visioning 2017 In Person Retreat – Jan 27-29th
* Harmonize: Women’s Vitality Retreat in Mexico – March 25-April 1st
* Kripalu East Coast Retreat: July 28-30
The yogi's predicted that these last 15 and the 15 ahead would be a time of chaos, unrest and challenge. Stormy. We are living in a time that can feel a little like living in a series of lightening storms. Sometimes thrilling, sometimes scary, moments of peace between the chaos, and lots of catalyzing happening in our personal lives and across all of humanity.
Things are changing because they must. But the change is often anything but peaceful.
In this session of Feminine Power Time, I'll answer that question plus share with you 3 super power practices steeped in the wisdom the sages have been teaching for thousands of years to move through times of unrest and upheveal.
I have modified this ancient wisdom for our modern lives with practices and perspective that really do give you super power to move through the storm with more peace, grace and calm.

Christine holds personal and group retreats around the world, as well as in Valley of the Moon California where she resides.
I recently put myself on a personal vision quest, to give me the space to listen more deeply to my heart and to the Divine to get direction and guidance. I often take these super power pauses at this time of the year, a natural time for going inward and accessing more subtle and more profound guidance about one's soul path.
On the last day, day 4, which was all about presence and bringing my presence into it's most powerful form at this time to do my sacred work and create a life that sustains me, I knew I had to spend time with one of the most present, powerful beings on the planet - the horses. I knew they had wisdom to open in my heart and body that I could not get to from my mind and I was right.
I received some potent pieces of wisdom that I just had to share with you - right from the horses mouth:) In this session of Feminine Power Time, I've got a basket of 5 or 6 pieces of wisdom that are keys to how we can:
Simple yet mighty wisdom these magnificent creatures of such presence have to provide us with. I received such a healing and such clarity and guidance. And I am thrilled I can share this with you.
I am fortunate to live in Valley of the Moon in Northern California where we have a very special equine organization called Belos Cavalos, a non profit who works with horses and humans, and who specializes in working with children affected by trauma.
In the 15 years I've been teaching self love, I have not met an adult who doesn't have some version of trauma that has implanted things like fear, shame and stress in their hearts.... that then lead us to the emotional and physical maladies we create oin how we show up in our relationships, work and lives as adults. These horses definitely unleashed my heart. I hope what I learned does some for you too.
Here's a little bit on what the folks at Belos Cavalos say about the wisdom these horse beings have for us...
"Our equine partners act as mirrors of our emotions, reflecting our behaviors, attitudes and ideas. Horses are in the moment and they cannot lie. Thus, they recognize and reflect the incongruence between our behavior and emotion, without judgment, revealing our truths."
For more on retreats and events you can take with Christine Arylo go to www.ChristineArylo.com Christine does personal retreats from Valley of the Moon.
Courageous women have risen above the forces that would try to diminish, distract, and discount their innate feminine power and wisdom because they feared the power of the feminine heart - for thousands of years. Not able to 'control' them, these powers sought to discount and derail them.
What we are seeing today in the media has been present on this planet for thousands of years... we just now have a tickers tape, social networks and 24/7 media so that this kind of blatant disrespect and disregard for the sacredness and power of the feminine body, heart and soul cannot be ignored.
In this Feminine Power Time, join me Christine Arylo, as we step out of the media madness where it's too easy to get caught up in the fear and frenzy, so we can:
Remember..while what we see may anger us and try to pull us apart, remember our power comes from shining the light not only on what is vulgar and unacceptable, but also on illuminating what is possible when a woman dares to follow her heart and speak her truth. We each have a part to play - in how we show up, what we speak and how we choose to make the shifts our souls are calling for.
Calling courageous women - to the Unleash the Feminine Heart 40-day Practice - starts in October, www.UnleashtheFeminineHeart.com
Follow your heart. What does that mean? How do you 'do' it? How do you conjure up the courage to step outside conventional wisdom to follow your inner wisdom?
And why is it essential for women especially to know, trust, and follow their Heart Wisdom that can sometimes feel crazy?
Join me and my special guest Shiloh Sophia McCloud, visionary artist and one of my dearest soul sisters as we sit around her kitchen table and share with you what our wise mentors and teachers - wise women who were part of the feminist and women's movement in the 1970s and beyond. These wise women, including Alice Walker, have wisdom to share with all of us women so we can be wiser in how we live, make choices and dare to follow our hearts to create systems and realities that seek to free and sustain instead of control and drain. Tune into Feminine Power Time - and tap into the wisdom of the timeless feminine heart.
To bring more of the feminine wisdom into your life - join Christine Arylo for virtual circle of women participating in the Unleash the Feminine Heart 40-day practice, starting in October. www.UnleashtheFeminineHeart.com
