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.

Imagine creating a year in which you have what you need to go for your dreams and take care of what you love, without having to sacrifice your personal health and happiness.
This is possible - but NOT the way we have been taught to do it. There is no 7 step process or pill that will make it so. But there is a way to live, the wisdom way.
I share more about the feminine wisdom of how to do this in this episode of Feminine Power Time with me, Christine Arylo, and also lead you through a guided journey/meditation using the Feminine Super Power of EXPAND and ILLUMINATE to:

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.
This special episode of Feminine Super Power Time with Christine Arylo was originally broadcast as a livestream. You can listen to the broadcast on this podcast and if you want to watch the video go to http://christinearylo.com/2016/11/activating-feminine-wisdom-power-uncertain-intense-times/
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…

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.
To connect with Christine Arylo + receive her free Overworked, Overwhelmed and Over It Kit full of meditations and simple practices for navigating a stressful world with more grace, go to www.ChristineArylo.com
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

There is no question that we are living in intense and uncertain times where who we’ve been and how we’ve operated will not support us on the path ahead.
About every woman I know who is awake, open-hearted, and desiring to live her greatest life, in alignment with her soul, is being called to her “edge” - personally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
It’s like our souls are beckoning...“Let go of things that no longer fit and leap into the unknown” - in our relationships, jobs, homes, careers, wealth, health, lifestyles, and habits. Anything that stems from false security, diminishes our most true presence or distracts us from our soul path - we either surrender it or we suffer through it.
And it feels scary, uncomfortable and if we are honest, there are times we’d rather pull the covers over our heads, or quit and just resign ourselves to do something easier.
This is what I call a SOUL STRETCH. You can either lean into the stretch and grow, breakthrough limits and old ways that no longer serve and eventually soar and reach deeper levels of strength and faith and expression. Or well, you can stay stuck, suffer and self sabotage.
And the truth is - during a SOUL STRETCH - you need support. You can't get through the stretch alone.
So in this Feminine Power Time we talk about how to get the support you need to support you through whatever soul stretch you are in.

To learn more about your Impatience Personality - take the Inner Mean Girl Quiz at www.innercriticquiz.com
"The yogis say that when you are content, you draw things to you. Cultivate patience, experience contentment. Cultivate impatience and you will repel that which you desire.”
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! The Guide to Creating a Meaningful Circle of GirlFriends. She also writes at ShastasFriendshipBlog.com and in the Huffington Post, speaks across the country, and is a friendship expert in the media appearing on such shows as Katie Couric and the Today Show.
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. How do you stay present to what's happening without being overtaken by it? And how do you stay calm and centered inside so how you respond to the outside adds more harmony & connection to your personal experience & relationships, and as a result to the world?

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:
Plus, as often happens in Feminine Power Time, the feminine presence came streaming through to deliver a message to your heart about shifting your focus on the way you are measuring the difference you are making - in your life, in your work, in the lives of others, and in the world. Super feminine power.

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:
