Anger and grief are good human emotions. They have the potential to open up so much for us - individually and collectively. Lead to healing, breaking down barriers, breaking through to better realities.

The problem is that most humans weren't taught how to express anger or grief in healthy ways, so it comes out sideways in distorted ways, or it gets stuffed down until we blow up or get sick. Sometimes we are the receiver of that big emotional eruption and other times we are the "unleasher" or "erupter" on someone else.

Join me for this Feminine Power Time conversation - Sacred Rage. Holy Grief. - where we explore perspectives and practices around dealing with the kind of rage and grief that comes from people's/our wound, and how to it differently in ways that lead to wholeness. We will explore inquiries like:

How do we...

  • Discharge anger & grief? So it doesn't build up inside us and leak out or erupt in distorted ways? 
  • Have big emotions like rage and grief about the world, about our reality, about other people's actions or choices, without them consuming us? 
  • Using our big emotions to heal ourselves and ignite creative action that inspires? 
  • Deal with other peoples misdirected rage and grief?
  • Respond to the things that piss us off, in powerful ways that make the world better vs. adding to the chaos. 

See below for some of the practices I mention in the podcast. 

I've been contemplating this topic for weeks and weeks, waiting for the right moment to arise. Today it did. 

After you listen, share with me one insight you took away that spoke to your heart, or illuminated a wisdom bite for you. (on the Feminine Wisdom Cafe). 

With heart,

Christine

This is a special broadcast of a letter I wrote to from my heart to the hearts of the women around the world when I was writing Overwhelmed and Over It: Embrace Your Power to Stay Centered and Sustained in a Chaotic World

I often write a letter when writing a book, to help me tap into the heart and soul of why i am writing this book, and why I feel so passionate about sharing the perspectives, wisdom and stories enclosed in it. 

For this book, that letter became the opening. Today, on the one year anniversary of its publication, I am sharing it FIRST here with you on Feminine Power Time as a special podcast broadcast. 

Why? Because every time I sit down to create and tape a Feminine Power Time, I intend to connect with you heart to heart... to be real... to share openly... to bring insight and wisdom... and to be space where you can deeply tap into your deep internal wisdom. 

For 5 years, the listeners of this podcast have been with me, here, having these conversations that much of the world is just waking up to. 

The world's been crazy for a long time. It's just now, it's catalyzing at warp speed, because we MUST change. People and the planet have been burning out for decades if not centuries. 

But the game isn't over. 

You and I are the makers, creators, mothers of the world ... we shape culture by how we make our choices and use our voices ... we create reality ... but not if we get swirled into the swirl, can't see the systemically-generated and self-induced burnout games and structures. 

AND we need each other, to help us tap into what is real, she what is needed, and then from our deep wisdom, embrace our power to choose differently and say NO MORE to what's not working.

So today... I share this with you... 

Get some tea or vino or pelligrino. Or just take a chill moment in the sun. And tune in.

May this release some pressure and create more courage and clarity and connection for you today. 

with great heart,

Christine

Oct 4, 2021

In the third part of our series on Staying Sane in an Insane World, we activate one of the most subtle but absolutely potent powers we have ... the power of inquiry and contemplation. 

We are trained in our over culture to value and work with questions and answers to drive to a conclusion, usually as fast as possible. "Time is money." And we are imprinted with a value system that says we must have the answer, if we don't we risk looking a fool, being called out or being discounted. 

But operating this way - in a mindset about quick answers vs. contemplation and consideration... in a world that values confidence over curiosity.... keeps us stuck in the consciousness and realities that don't work for us individually or collectively. Unhealthy, insane ways of working, relating and living.

In a wiser, healthy culture, one that values the feminine, we practice the art of inquiry and contemplation to open up possibility and to gain clarity.  

 For this session of Feminine Power Time I chose 4 inquiries that I use often in making choices everyday. They are the same ones I use when I am working with a leader to unlearn the distorted approach to growth, goal setting and management, and to learn a different, wiser, healthier way of working.    

As I lead you through these 4 inquiries, bring a challenge, a catalyst, a situation you are working or that is working you. And we can apply it to inquiries and see what emerges!  

Some of what we'll explore:

1.  The power of wonder. Inquiry: I wonder...

2.  The power of quintessence. Inquiry: What is at the core? What is the essence?

3. The power of seeing beyond your five senses to shift out of fear into a response that leads to harmony and healin. Inquiry: What's real? What's needed? What do I need?

4. The power of choosing to move forward consciously vs waiting for change to kick you in the butt. Inquiry: How do we/I move forward from here?

See you there!

It's time to activate and utilize one of the most powerful tools we have to stay centered, sustained and focused on what matters - the Power Pause.

This practice gets us focused the last  3 months / 4 moon cycles of the year.  And does wonders for keeping us healthy in an unhealthy world.

There are many things you could do these last 3 months of the year, but what is really most important to you? What will bring you the best returns ? And what shifts in your habits, patterns, and structures are needed to support you in this last cycle?  

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

The September Equinox offers you insight to illuminate where the imbalances currently exist in your life & how to reset yourself and refocus your life force  - especially the ways in which you are over giving and under receiving, the habits that may have worked in the summer but won't support you now, and the ways in which making changes to your home, health and wealth can support you to end your year strong, sane and supported.

In this Feminine Power Time : POWER PAUSE: Reflect, Rebalance and Reset Your Focus at Equinox ... and exhale! 4 Inquiries to Get Focused on What Matters Most the Last Part of this Year & Feel Good About What You've Already Done...

Women's leadership and empowerment advisor and teacher, Christine Arylo, marries her MBA business background with 15+ years of wisdom and spiritual study in practical ways that can support you to elevate out of overwhelm, stay focused on what matters, shift sabotaging habits and take care of small things that make a big difference. 

Tune into this Power Pause and:

  • Learn the wisdom behind taking power pauses 4 times a year - and how this practice can yield big returns in your business, career, relationships and health/wealth/home
  • Experience the feminine way of growing our work and impact vs tackling projects, driving like a torpedo, or pressuring ourselves to make things happen too fast

Be led through a visualization and meditation to:

  • Feel good about what you have already done this year. 
  • Reveal the imbalances - work, relationships, health, wealth or home - that need attention.
  • Consider what you need to bring the imbalances into harmony, so you have what you need 
  • Gain clarity on how to best focus your attention the last part of this year.

Power Pauses are a form of feminine leadership which teaches us to work in harmony with the natural cycles of how the material and mystical world both work. Part of her Feminine Wisdom School and Feminine Leadership Programs Arylo teaches how to use this ancient wisdom and way of working to apply to creating a life and work that creates an impact and is sustainable. 

UPCOMING EVENTS & PROGRAMS

Sep 7, 2021

In the second part of our series on Staying Sane in an Insane World, this week we press the "elevate" button to get a wider, higher view of what's happening in our world landscape.

This practice of "pressing the elevate button" is how we find wisdom amongst the madness, find our way to center in the midst of chaos, and open up possibility, compassion and connection instead of more of the same game humankind has been stuck in some thousands of years.

I've been contemplating what I would share in this podcast "4 Perspectives for Staying Sane in an Insane World" as I've been in deep listening and observing mode. 

What I share are four perspectives to contemplate, consider, chew on, try on and be curious about. Take what resonates, leave the rest. All I ask is you come with an open heart and mind, in service to us each unlocking ourselves and all beings and life from the consciousness that just no longer serves. 

Some of what we'll explore:

  1. Duality Reality and Polarities that pull us apart and pit us against each other and the power of 'standing in and surrendering to the paradox" to access a new level of reality
     
  2. How we work in this world now in ways that support life and humans to thrive is not the same way we've worked in the past

  3. Breaking apart the matrix of a dominating, power-over, distorted masculine world and value system, that's kept us stuck in unsustainable, inequitable realities. 

  4. What action we can take by choosing who we will be as we go through this collective transformation.

Plus I will sing a little diddy for you at the end. 

Share the English paper I wrote that broke my heart open and opened my wise woman eyes.

I'll end us with a short meditation and leave you with these words:

Who do you choose to be?
Remember your personal healing matters. 
Believe your personal choices matter.
How will you give your gifts and voice to create the world you know in your heart is possible? 

See you there!

Christine

The word sane means free from mental disturbance. I would add emotional disturbance too. The kinds that creates confusion, doubt, impulsive choices, procrastination and all kinds of the commotion we might be feeling within, and are seeing spinning in our world. 

While we cannot stop the insanity we see happening in our world and the people within it at a whole new level these days (or even may be feeling ourselves)... there are things we can DO to stay sane, sustained, centered and focused on what matters. 

We 'do' these things - called practices - not just when the wave of insanity becomes a tsunami or a tropical storm. The wise ones put these into place proactively, we design our lives, the way we work, think and operate with them. 

Our daily and weekly practices are the structures that hold us no matter what is happening around us. 

Our practices give us the space to have our human emotions and release them out of our system so we can respond from an elevated, higher frequency, more humane consciousness that opens people and possibility up vs. creating more polarity and unhelpful chaos. 

Our practices give us wisdom. 

So we can use our creative life force to create the world we desire for ourselves, each other, and those we love, lead and influence. 

So here's what we are going to do these next three episodes of Feminine Power Time focused on "Staying Sane in an Insane World" ... Start with 4 practices for staying emotionally & mentally healthy & clear in this episode #162. Then perspectives. Then possibilities. 

We are going to be with what is, and use our super power to lighten up, be the creators and the makers, and ensure we have what we need to make clear, supportive choices and navigate when we 'fall off our surfboard'.

Tune in and I'll share more about the practices:

CREATE 
CONVERSATE & COUNCIL 
CENTER & CONNECT TO YOUR CORE  
CLEAR YOUR FIELD 

Did you know that the root of the word SANE means healthy? 

Which means we are diving into how to Stay Healthy in an Unhealthy World. 

Just think about that re-frame ... if you let your wise being eyes see the unhealthy worlds and realities... and you make a choice to stay healthy - mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, relationally and materially at this time - how would that inform or guide your daily, weekly and bigger choices.

Something to ponder ... and put into practice :)

With great heart,
Christine

You and I have the super power to consciously choose to catalyze ourselves vs. wait to be catalyzed the a big Universal 2x4. We have the power to work with the catalyzing energy happening on our planet right now in a way that supports and serves us and others vs. overwhelming us. But like any super power, if you can't name it and articulate it, you can't wield its power.

The feminine super power of catalyze is: the power to use the situations that life brings you as liberators and elevators that lift YOU & OTHER up to expanded levels of consciousness and reality. 

When you choose to embrace your power to catalyze yourself out of a comfort zone, with focus and swiftness, you release and shed what's no longer needed (and is weighing you down)... 

And as a result take a self empowered step into your soul's evolution, liberating yourself to a more full, true, empowered expression.

When you shift how what's challenging you right now in your life from something happening to you into something happening through you, you step into your power to meet and work with whatever is showing up.... as a process and path to greater healing, freeing and expressing. 

Look around your life right now - at your work, your relationships, your physical foundation of health, wealth and home. Ask yourself:

1. What would I LOVE to catalyze in my life right now? 

2. What is already being catalyzed in your life? And if you named it, you could powerfully start working with it vs it working you. 

Then Join me for episode 161 of Feminine Power Time - Feminine Super Power: Catalyze! Release the comfortable. Embrace the call to shift. 

This is practical wisdom in action - to apply to whatever is catalyzing or wants to be in your life. We'll dive into:

  • 3 of the principles of the feminine super power of Catalyze so that you can be a Conscious Catalyzer 
  • How to meet challenges as catalysts 
  • How to catalyze yourself to step out of your comfort zone vs waiting for the Universe to do it for you
  • How to work with the catalyzing energy of our time to
  • Liberation - what it is and how you can use it

We'll reveal and identify:

  • What are your lifetime catalyzers? Those areas of your life that keep challenging you? 
  • What "skins" - roles, responsibilities, and robes of expression or repression - are you ready or is it time to release? 
  • What within you is calling to be liberated? What desires to be more free to express? What do you desire to be more free to receive? 
  • What ways of living, relating, or working are you complete with and ready to liberate yourself from? 

Tune in. And if you missed the podcast series on Sacred Transformation #126 - 128, tune in to that too.

See you there.

When people ask me how I am doing, I always say to them "I am in the yoga of life." It's the most accurate, honest and frankly rewarding answer. Twenty years ago when I found yoga and it found me, I didn't realize how much it would re-shape how I saw the world, and honestly how much it would prepare me for this world today. I can honestly say that I would not be able to do what I do, be the person I am, without it. 

Yoga is so much more than being bend, meditating for hours or proving our strength by how long you can hold a pose, or if you can do a handstand. 

Yoga means union. 

The physical practice of yoga is just one gateway into what is a well of golden wisdom that the yogis left for us to meet the times we are in. It's like then knew 'this' - today's intense world - was coming. 

And while I talk about yogic wisdom all the time, and it's informed so much of my teachings, I also find that we have a lot of misperceptions about yoga in the western world. And there's so much more to it that is right there, if we are willing to open up to it. 

Which is why I invited a new friend, Patsy Kuo Eisenstein, a native of Taiwan who moved to the US at the age of 20, and host o f the New & Ancient Story Community to join us for a special "wise woman tea" session of Feminine Power Time: #160: Living Life as A Yoga, Yogi Perspectives for Thriving in Our Times.

We invite you to join us as we look through the eyes of the yogi, through our personal journey with yoga, the practice of yoga not just on the mat, but in every area of our lives, and how yoga as a way of life is core to our ability to serve this world and stay sustained within ourselves. 

We share our experience of:

  • How ‘yoga’ finds you and how the wisdom opens up to you over time.
  • Leadership and power through the eyes of a Western woman  practicing yoga 
  • Harmonic Defiance as a yogi - moving in strength, staying true to the self, receiving other people's judgements, and following your deeper wisdom no matter what
  • Dealing with people we don't agree with, that trigger us and that we just don't understand - in ways we don't waste our chi ranting or fighting against, but how that make a subtle but significant impact 
  • What 'living life as a yoga' means and how to explore what that could look like for you  

Tune in. 

Join us.

And then connect with Patsy. And come over to the Feminine Wisdom Cafe and join in the conversation. 

with great heart, 
Christine

Should you trust your logic and rationale brain or your deeper inner feelings and knowing when making choices? How do you know when to listen to the data or the numbers, and when to trust your heart and make a choice against what the numbers say?

Do you tend to rely more on your intellect or your intuition to guide you, and how is that helping you or hurting you? 

Join me and my partner in life and love and business, Noah Martin, for #3 in our Making Wise Choices series on Feminine Power Time: Using the Power of Both Your Head & Heart. 

I invited Noah to join us because he masterful at using both the head and the heart together to make wise choices (join us and you'll learn more why.)

Here is some of what we will dive into together. Bring with you the choice points you are standing at, and / or choices you have made in the past ... because we make this personal to you, so that you can make wiser choices in all parts of your life.

  • What having access to both our intellect and our intuition gives you
  • When you want to use your intellect - its' good at this - and when you want to trust your intuition (intellect sucks at this)

  • What bad choices made from the heart look like
  • What bad choice made from the head look like

  • Determine if you tend to over-rely on the head or the heart, and how that can be sabotaging you
  • How to get underneath the unconscious drivers of your decisions so you don't make impulsive choices from fear, or make a choice thinking you are getting on thing, but you get another. 

Tools like

  • The Power Spectrum of aligned intuition and intellect and distorted uses of both  
  • The Known and Unknown Clarity and Courage Booster

And 4 Wisdom Inquiries Noah shared to run yourself through to get underneath what is driving any choice you are making:

1. What is the dream that is underlying this decision? And does it actually help you get to the dream? 

2. What is the fear? 

3. What is your tendency towards making choices - do you lean to being overly optimistic or overly pessimistic? What is that part saying? 

4. What does your Inner Wisdom know?

If you are making choices that stretch you out of your comfort zone or go against the status quo you should expect fear to bubble up. It's normal and human. 

But how do you deal with the confusion, doubt, anxiety, frustration, impatience in a way that empowers you to make wise choices? And how do you get past it to find the wisdom that will actually guide you to making the wise and aligned choice for you? 

The truth is that most of us were not taught how to work with the mental, emotional, physical, and energetic responses and reactions our bodies, minds, hearts and psyches have when we make choices that stretch us, or trigger past trauma, hurt or suffering. 

But when you know how to work with both the parts of you that react from fear and past trauma or cultural or familial imprints AND the part of you connected to your true soul design and heart desires, you can the super power to elevate out of the doubt and confusion, into a inner knowing that empowers you to take action. 

In #2 of our Making Wise Choices series on Feminine Power Time with me, Christine Arylo, "Is Fear or Wisdom Guiding You? Clear Confusion & Doubt to Get to Your Truth":  we will dive into:

  • How to understand the different forces within you that influence your choices 
  • How to use the doubt, fear, confusion to make better choices and get what you need. 
  • Why you can't ignore your emotional reactions if you want to make wise choices
  • How to discern whether it's your inner critic/fear/past trauma/imprints making your choices or your inner wisdom
  • The Ping Pong effect - what to do when you get caught in this or that thinking. 
  • Practices for strengthening your clarity, including a 3-part practice you can do right now with the choices you are making

Bring whatever choices you are working with. You don't have to navigate this alone!

Wisdom byte:

  • You must give yourself the space to feel your emotion before you can find the path to the wise choice. 
  • When you stretch out of your comfort zone, it's normal to have fear and doubt. Just don't let it drive your choices. 
  • Your feelings are your super power. 
  • Your heart is your power center. Know how it works or you only operate at half of your intelligence.

You make choices every day. Every choice we make - big or small - affects the shape of our lives and the reality we live. But most of us were not taught how to make wise decisions.

We’ve been taught to be logical, and practical, but decisions about your life made from only the intellect often lead you to creating realties that limit you, burn you out, keep you from what you truly desire.

In changing, intense times like we live in, where we are each making choices - in our career, relationships, business, money and health - you cannot just rely on your intellect or what the mainstream world is telling you to make courageous and wise choices. 

Many of the choices I see women being faced with right now are also causing us to have to stretch outside our comfort zones … which can create feelings of fear and doubt… confusion and procrastination… and stress!

If you want to make choices that lead to a reality that supports you vs sacrifices you, you have to access both your heart wisdom and intuitive power first … have the inner skill to work with your own fear and confusion to find clarity… and then have the courage to make choices that will often look differently than others. And for this you need super powers, truly.

Which is why I decided to create this 3 part series on Feminine Power Time for you “Making Wise Choices”.

This first episode is focused on one of the super power tools I believe is essential … but most people lack. It’s called “Cultivating Your Wisdom Council” — without this I don’t think it is possible to stay focused on what matters, and make truly wise choices.

So tune in … I taped this on location in Northern California at the home of one of my soul sisters on my Wise Woman Council. during a weekend in which I came to visit 3 of the members of my council to help me make some big choices about my business and organization, and the shape of the reality those choices would create.

What I will share today is:

  • Why you want to make WISE CHOICES vs. smart choices.
  • What is a wisdom council, and why do you want to make sure you have one?
  • How to create your own Wisdom Council
  • Who to have in your council and who not to
  • How to ask for the support and clarity you need so you get wisdom not advice.

    I also have two daring acts for you to put this into place in your life now. 

Bring the choices and challenges you are facing ... and let's get you set up to have the support you need to stay clear and stay connected to what is true for you.

see you next week!
much love,

Christine

Are the choices you are making creating freedom for you? Or are you unknowningly creating realities that keep you stuck, stressed and out of alignment with what you truly desire? Most of us subconsciously make choices that laden us down vs. liberate us... but how do you know? 

Take a power pause with Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and wisdom teacher to shine a light on the ways in which you may be sabotaging your own freedom, so you can make sure you are making choices that lead to creating a life that supports and sustains what truly matters to you. In this episode of Feminine Power Time you'll gain wisdom on:

  • The 3 ways we sabotage their own freedom
  • How our unconscious needs to belong and have security lead us to make choices in our careers, relationships, home, lifestyles that cause us to sacrifice what matters most to us
  • Three common freedom stealers - The Golden Handcuffs, The Self Sacrifice Shackles and the Fishbowl Effect
  • How to make sure that the choices you are making are in alignment with what's true for YOUR Path 
  • How to identify specifically what's out of alignment, creating unnecessary pressure and how to free yourself - using a special feminine wisdom process created by Christine  

Make a conscious choice to gain the wisdom, tools and practices to keep you on your path, even if that means stepping outside of conventional wisdom and your comfort zone... And keep yourself out of overwhelm and burnout. 

I originally taped this episode in 2018, and re-taped the intro this year, during what I call "Liberation Weekend" - July 4th in the US. It's a powerful portal to liberate yourself from the unconscious constraints, judgements, expectations, and beliefs limiting and binding you.

May this bring you more awareness and more courage to make choices that create a life and career design that supports, sustains and empowers you to prosper on all levels. 

With heart

Most of us feel like we don't have the time we need to do what we really want, get what we need or do the things that might not be productive or profitable but are actually the things that feed us the most and that have the potential to catalyze us into the expressions, intentions and dreams we have for ourselves, our work and the world. 

Wisdom Byte: If you are waiting to find the time, you will never find the time. Time is finite. You can't make time - there is no time kitchen. And you can't find more time - time is not lost.

What we need is not more time. What we need is the 'space' to take care of the demands of our current lives AND feed the desires still coming into form AND nourish our hearts and souls and bodies with things that may not be 'productive' or 'profitable' but that sustain us in big ways. 

You are invited to join Christine Arylo for this Feminine Power Time - a POWER PAUSE, taped at the mid-year point, to invoke

  • THE FEMININE POWER OF CREATING SPACE ... which gives you the power to create space for things that may not be urgent or profitable or productive but that matter to you
  • Your internal power to name what it is that you really desire to create space for these next few months with 4 wisdom inquiries ... in your work, in your relationships, for your body and just for yourself 
  • The power of pausing at the mid-year point - the Solstice... this interactive session is like the appetizer to the deeper power pause we take every year to get clear and conscious and intentional about how we focus our life force
  • The ELEVATION projects you want to create space for - that have the power to elevate your presence, self expression in the world  

See you there!

We have huge misunderstandings of what creativity is, and how relevant and essential it is to every sector of our society, our economy, our wellness and happiness and our families. Creativity is not just about making a painting or a piece of ‘art.’

Some of the greatest thinkers and scientists have also said what the artists and sages have always known - imagination and intuition are more powerful than the intellect. It's our capacity to imagine and tune into a more expanded field of consciousness that inspires us, illuminates possibility for us, and both heals, awakens and empower us.  

Yet, if you look at the over-culture we live in, wow, it's set up to keep us from this primal, innate creative power.

Our schools have cut back on creativity as part of core curriculum, instead they are over-focused on memorizing and accepting conventional thought and scientific proof as the only reality. 

Women’s creativity is often diminished into “arts and crafts”, scrapbooking or a nice “hobby.”

And most people don’t see themselves as artists or artistically talented, because they can't paint or draw in a what is deemed beautiful, so they shy away from being “creative”.

This and more is keeping up from the truth of how creativity lives within each of us. Distancing us from our power and potential to create different realities for ourselves and the world. And keeps us  from potent self-healing techniques that we could be using to release trauma, move through challenging emotions, and navigate these intense times.     

Consider this... wisdom that emerged from this conversation and wise woman tea between myself and Shiloh Sophia McCloud, founder of the Center for Intentional Creativity (and my dear friend of almost 15 years), which we are inviting you to:

"People have mixed up talent and creativity. If you think you are not talented, you think you are not creative. Which is not true. EVERYONE is creative.

Creativity is the natural innate life force that exists in every person and how you chose to create it."

Join us for this special "Wise Woman Tea" with Arylo and Shiloh, to top off our series of Embracing Your Power to Create the World You Wish to Live In. In our wise woman tea episodes I invite a woman who has dedicated her life to living and learning a specific wisdom tradition or lineage, and has founded and brought forth this wisdom in practical ways that can empower us in these intense and changing times.   

In Episode 158 we focus on The Power & Practice of Intentional Creativity for Navigating and Thriving in Our Times we will explore: 

  • What creativity is NOT 
  • Embracing our creative nature and power as creators 
  • STOPPING the rhetoric that we are not "creative"
  • STARTING embracing our creativity as a super power that we all have and that we can use in ALL areas of our lives, professional and personal.
  • The systemic roots of why we get disconnected from our full creative power at a young age
  • Self-expression as essential to our wellness 
  • How we can guide and influence others to stay connected to their creative power, even if the systems don't support it #harmonicdefiance
  • The link between creativity and consciousness, how we think, and how our brains work
  • Using creative process and practice to cause significant breakthroughs individually and collectively


In the episode, Shiloh and I will share and talk about Intentional creative processes and physical practices that give us the power to:

  • AWAKEN our potential and new possibility 
  • HEAL and MOVE THROUGH challenging emotions and times
  • RELEASE trauma from our system
  • CONNECT with our intuition and receive wisdom and guidance
  • CREATE SPACE for contemplating and being in conversation with the Universe and your deeper Self.

Join us for the conversation and the exploration. And then take what you learn and start bringing the practice of intentional creativity into your DAILY life. 

We start the Mid Year Power Pause in June and July - which is an intentional creative process. Feminine Wisdom Way is a community and wisdom school that actively uses our creative power daily to co create the world we wish to live in. 

See you there!

Christine

Wisdom Bytes:

  • The mind can only create what it seen before. But your intuition has the power to expand possibility.  
  • Thinking is the long way to make change.
  • Wellness cannot be achieved through just the mind.
  • Creativity as a practice and a process is a way through to true healing, freeing and new ways of working, living and doing things.

Co-Creation is the practice and path we all have as humans to create the realities we live in - individually and collectively - but few of us were ever educated on HOW we do that. Co-creator. Hmmm. Just read that word a few times. CO CREATOR. CO CREATE. What does that even mean?

I am the co-creator of my reality? 

And, consider this... if you knew how to 'co-create' as a path and practice for how you approach all parts of your life and work, and all the problems you see around you or experience yourself, what possibility and potentiality could that open up for you?

Can you imagine that there are realities you can't even see, yet??

Do you know how to trust the process to unfold? Do you know how to be in active relationship with the process in a way that keeps you expanding into possibility?

This is why we are doing this 3 part series on Embracing Your Power to Create the World You Desire to Live In. To educate, explore, experiment and experience this power we have within us to make change, do things differently, shift this world, stop patterns and habits that keep us and others trapped in suffering.

Embracing your power as a Co Creator, which is an act of both humility and honoring, opens up the potential for us to truly be what the wisdom teachings have always said we could be:

We are the ones who dream reality into being through our imagination and intuition. We are meant to work with the Universe, each other and the earth. And when we do, we co-create a society that reflects wholeness and wellness, and empowers all life to prosper.

When we stop looking out there for the answers, the safety and security, and the ways we should think and believe, we open our hearts and minds to a deeper truth that reflects the soul of the earth & humankind ... which by nature creates  forms and organizes life in ways that create harmony.

Tune into this episode of Feminine Power Time with leadership advisor and social impact leader Christine Arylo: 157:  Be The Co Creator of Your Reality

  • What do I mean by "Co-Creation"?

  • 4 Realms of Co-creative Relationship: yourself, the Universe, the earth, and the others 

  • 4 phases of Sustainable Aligned Co-creation - when you follow these in your individual choices or in teams or organization, instead of creating too much, too fast or making choices that lead to bad outcomes, you create forms and take actions that lead to wellness, for the whole and you.

  • 7 practices for Co-Creating - these are practical things you 'do' in your daily life and in your decision making to be in connection to all four realms and stages of co-creation  

  • What keeps you stuck in limited thinking and reality cutting off your ability to co-create new possibility
  • How do you work with the power of INQUIRY, INTUITION, and RITUAL & RHYTYM to open up possibility, gain clarity and take steps forward?  

As we stand here at this time on the planet, our ability not just to believe but to experience that we have the power within, through our choices and voices, to be the creators of this world, is like a life line for us.

When you practice co creation as how you live, you feel so much more connected... so much more trusting... so much more alive... so less like a victim or the master controller of the universe, and so much more like you are held, guided and empowered to live well, and be part of humankind finding a better more loving way to live.

See you there

Christine

Have you ever looked around at the world, an aspect of society, or the organization you work and felt like WTF !? This is not working for me. This seems crazy? Sometimes we feel empowered to 'do' something about it, and others, we feel overwhelmed, like there's nothing I can do to change this reality?

We have more power than we know. 

As humans, we are 'makers' of culture.

We create the culture by how we grow & change ourselves, how we interact with others, what we choose to 'make' & the choices we make.

Here's a few wisdom bytes about our power to be 'makers' of the cultures we live in, from our own inner culture of self, to our family and tribe, to our teams and organizations and from there society. 

  • We are the makers of culture - our family, our organizations, our teams, our society - through the choices we make in our lives, big and small.
  • Our reality and the world around us is like clay - we have the power to shape it. We don't make the clay, we work with the clay, and like a sculptor or potter, we let it inform us, we engage in a co-creative process with it.
  • We don't force it. We work with it. Or we start over and create a different piece. We have more power than we think, when we focus on where we can have the greatest influence, and choose not to waste our energy on where we don't.
  • We create the culture around us in and in this world by how we grow and change ourselves - how we 'make' and shape ourselves. The 'work' we do within the Self contributes to the evolution of the collective.    

This wisdom is potent and practical, if you know how to apply it and use it. 

Which is why we are doing this 3 part series, diving into 3 realms of where our power lies to do things differently, to be conscious creators of reality and culture and society and our lives. Archetypes we have within us that we can access to be and feel empowered to see where we can make shifts: the Mother, the Maker, & the Co-Creator. 

Tune into this episode of Feminine Power Time with leadership advisor and social impact leader Christine Arylo: 156: Be a Maker of Culture: Embrace Your Power To Create the World You Desire to Live In and explore:

  • What does it mean to be a Maker?
  • What are you 'making' through your choices and through your own inner self expression?
  • How your courage to look within your Self honestly and then do the 'work' to heal and elevate on the inside is creating a better world
  • How to look at what you don't like in the world today or in the cultures around you, and find where that lives in you, and then embrace your power to do things differently
  • How to 'shape' your reality and become more adept at 'shaping' the realities you want to live.  

One of the things I think you will really love after this conversation is starting to see how your choices just in your very own life have the power to shift this world, and the environments around you.

May this session ignite your power of Harmonic Defiance ... to make choices that align for you, even if they are different than those around you, choices that create more HARMONY for you and others, and as a result create a world in more harmony.

We'll end with a super powered way to make this practical in your life today.

See you there

Christine

We have so much power within to create the world we desire to live in, for ourselves, those we influence and our society - but in the current reality, with the current stressors, we face, that can seem so far away or like self help rah rah. When it's anything but.

Knowing where our power is to take the pressure off, create space for ourselves, receive what we need, focus our energy and resources is essential for anyone who wants to make an impact, in a way in which you are sustained do. This is where our feminine power comes in.

In this series, we are building from the energy of the 5-year anniversary podcast Ep 154: Embrace Your Power to Create the World You Desire to Live In, to make this profound possibility and wisdom practical and applicable to you and your life. 

The series will take us into 3 realms of where our power lies to do things differently, to be conscious creators of reality and culture and society and our lives. Archetypes we have within us that we can access to be and feel empowered to see where we can make shifts: the Mother, the Maker, & the Co-Creator. 

In this episode #155 of Feminine Power Time we dive into Valuing the Mother, exploring

  • What is The Mother archetype and energy? All of us can be mothers, even if we choose not to be parents.
  • The distortions in our current over-culture that cause us to undervalue or devalue the Mother, and as a result burnout, not get what we need, and stay stuck in society that requires us to produce more, grow faster, give more and do more, always. 
  • Three aspects of our Mother Power:  To birth. To nurture. To advocate.

I'll take you through these three aspects of Mother Power so you can take the pressure off yourself, give yourself the space and support you need, and shake off the over-culture B.S. that is not serving you.

We'll end with a super powered stand to say NO MORE to what is not supporting you.

See you there

Hello Dear One ... Every May I love to re-listen to and re-share this episode on MOTHER LOVE which I recorded in 2017, and the wisdom still stands... and the message still so needed for us all to hear, contemplate and put into practical action. 

Mother Love is so much more than we think it is.) So many of us are feeling stretched - being called to make changes, expansions, trust. In times like you need more "mother love" - it's so powerful! MOTHER LOVE does not just come from your birth mother. 

And since most of us aren't taught what that is or how to source it, I am replaying this Feminine Power Time. If you've never heard it, tune in. If you have, re-listen this is medicine and a message that will bring clarity, confidence and courage to you at this time....

Next week we will start our three part series on how we can tap into and focus our feminine creative power to birth, make and co create the world we desire to live in. For now, soak in the Mother Love.

Much love to you xoxo Christine 

"THERE IS A GREAT MOTHER LOVE AVAILABLE THAT CAN ACT AS THE SAFE AND SOFT HARBOR YOU NEED TO STAND STRONG + FEEL SUPPORTED. IT WILL HOLD YOU, SOOTHE YOU, AND GIVE YOU UNSTOPPABLE COURAGE."

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 doIn this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo: Mother Love: The Feminine Love That Will Hold You Through Transition:

  • Reveal why one mother cannot be our only source of love – and how embracing this can wipe out all kinds of baggage and free you to receive the support, nurturing, courage, acceptance, patience, understanding and compassion
  • Define Mother Love – this is SO much more than the story or situation between you and your birth mother. Even if you had the greatest mother growing up, your need for more Mother Love doesn’t end.
  • See how the lack of Mother Love is often at the root of things like loneliness, feeling like you don’t belong, fear, not feeling like you have enough, are enough, not being cared for, not feeling supported  – these patterns will keep showing up if you don’t get to the root
  • Explore the powerful 3 Sources of Mother Love that are here for all of us - there is SO much of this support here for us beyond what we have been taught exists.
  • Learn simple practices you can do to invite this powerful, potent, feminine love into your heart and life –  including the Great Mother Bath

This book is at it's heart mother love ... first advocating for ourselves and those we love and lead to be sustained, nurtured, cared for, safe, supported ... so then we can create organizations, a society, a culture, a world that reflects that for all people and planet.

I am so over the moon thrilled to be able to mark this point of the Feminine Power Time podcast with you - 5 years - with 5 being a number that signifies transformation. Which is the time we are in! 

I have been contemplating for the past few weeks what this episode should focus on, how it can support you during this transformational times and how Feminine Power Time can be a structure, support and space for you.

The center point of Feminine Power Time has always been about embracing our power to create the world we desire to live in. For ourselves. For those we love, lead and influence. For what matters to you in this world. 

It's my response to breaking through what keeps us from access our full wisdom and power. 

It's a space I create for you to come weekly to turn off the chaos or chatter of the outside world, to more deeply tune into what is true and real and aligned for you. 

It's a playground and a gathering place for us to explore different ways of being, living, leading and succeeding.

Whether you just found us or you have been here for years, I am grateful for our connection. I look forward to this special conversation with you.

Tune in. 

We are just getting started .... in what it really means to embrace our power to create the world we desire to live in. What that means practically. What we need to support us to keep stepping forward. And how we do this TOGETHER.

With great heart

Christine

Sustainable success. Soul-aligned life. That can sound like self help mumbo jumbo. Wishful thinking. Buzzwords. Or like, sure I will get around to that when I am not so overwhelmed just trying to deal with my current reality.

Add to that, that we are so conditioned by this over-culture to look for the quick fix, or the promise of some nirvana, and it's obvious why the levels of depression, anxiety, doubt, stress, fatigue, and burnout have gone up not down in the last four decades. 

Which is why in this third episode, we are going to get real about what it really means to CHOOSE to live a soul-aligned, sustainable life, in all areas of our lives, including how we work, run businesses, choose projects and make choices. 

Sustainable success and a soul aligned life is not a goal you achieve and mark off the list as complete. 

It is a path, a practice and a choice.

It is the how you co-create and cultivate this a reality in which you:

  • Achieve the impact you desire
  • Receive the sustainability and support you need 
  • Stay connected to those you love, including yourself
  • Stay focused on what truly matters to you
  • Create space to savor your life

Tune into this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo, MBA, feminine leadership advisor, and wisdom teacher: #153 Sustainable Success: How Do We "Do" It ... so you can experience the your co-creative power to create more of the reality and world you wish to live in. This is not a quick fix, but it is a portal out of the overculture into a different way. 

Wisdom Bytes that we'll explore 

PATH

  • Expect uncertainty and the unexpected.
  • It is okay not to know.
  • Be committed and clear on what you desire to create - in your life design and in the work you give your life force to.


 PRACTICE 

  • To wield the power of co-creation you need to be able to work with, trust and apply both your feminine and masculine power. 
  • Work with the natural cycles to create smaller time spans which will reduce your anxiety and increase your clarity. 

CHOICE

  • Don't let the system, others or yourself pressure you to speed up and  make a choice before you are ready
  • Claim and name the support and space you need 

Tune in. Then check out the Navigating Uncertainty video series on the Feminine Wisdom Cafe to go deeper. And if you'd like a structure and support to hold you, join us for the Overwhelmed and Over It: A Path to Sustainable Success experience.

See you there

If we just keep taking more on - in our work, in our relationships, and world - we will burn out, get sick and not have the impact we desire to make, nor receive the lives our hearts and souls crave.

But we can't help ourselves - most of us feel over stretched and over whelmed because we keep taking more on, as if it's our only choice. Something has to give, and this time, it cannot be you.

In this episode of Feminine Power Time: #2 of 3 in our Soul Aligned Sustainable Success, Christine Arylo, author of Overwhelmed and Over It! takes us into a conversation that will:

  • Illuminate the systemic and social realities that have created a culture - in our society, in our organizations and in our families - that always demands more. 
  • The hub of the systemic distortions around how we value growth and success that have gotten imprinted into we approach and think about our relationships, work and choices. 
  • Why in the 50 + years working women have been in the workforce, we are more stressed not less.

Wisdom Byte: The systems have not sufficiently changed to support women in the workforce, so we just kept doing more! Because we had to.

We'll explore and expand possibility by looking at two of the imprints that drive us to make unsustainable choices in our lives, relationships, career and work. And RELEASE those. And learn two self sustaining imprints to embrace instead.

Imprint #6: Release: It's better to give than receive. Embrace: It's better to give AND receive. Imprints that we inherit from our family and how we were educated that cause us to value how much we sacrifice ourselves or how much burden or pressure we can carry. 

Imprint #7: Release: Work Hard to Succeed. Embrace: Work Wise to Thrive. Which causes you to plug the holes and needs of the systems and people around you, like the little Dutch Boy.

And two self sustainability practices for doing things differently, to work wise. 

Just give enough.

Don't plug the holes. Let the system re-shape itself.

See you there!
Christine

You can do and be anything. And you to have to make choices. Our choices day to day and in big life decisions create our reality.

But how do you make sure that the choices you are making daily and in big life design, career path, financial, relationship are actually 'in alignment' for you? In alignment with your heart and soul, not just your ego? And why does this matter? 

What I've learned in the decade plus I've been researching the root causes of burnout, overwhelm, self sacrifice and the rise in depression and disease within women, one thing I found was this:

No matter how educated or smart, most women did not receive the wisdom, training or education we needed to make soul-aligned, supportive choices, that keep us rooted in our personal truth, innate wisdom and internal self-worth. 

So we end up creating realities in how we work, design our relationships and lives that are not truly in alignment with what feels aligned and in harmony - which has so many implications and so much wisdom that you'll just have to tune in :)

I started this series to open up a conversation, illuminate wisdom and give you some things to consider as you look at the way you design your life, relationships, career, mission, work, business if you are an entrepreneur, from here. 

In #1 of our three part series on Feminine Power Time: Soul-Aligned Sustainable Success, we will dive in to 4 nuggets of wisdom, elevated perspectives for you to consider about "Soul-Aligned Choices"

We cannot have success and won't feel truly successful professionally or personally if we don't expand our understanding of success to include our heart and soul.Here's some of what we will dive into:

1. What are soul-aligned choices, and what does this have to do with your daily life, career, chosen work and relationships?

2. How do you know when your choices and realities are in alignment for you, and when the are not? 

3. How to tell when something that was once in alignment is no longer in alignment so you can make different choices, without creating distress and or getting a Universal 2x4 wake up.

4. What practices and support structures you want to have in place so you have the clarity and wisdom to make soul aligned choices that lead to sustainable - vs. distress making - change and shifts.

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 my Feminine Wisdom Way training, some virtually, some weekend retreats and some for companies and organizations.

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

If you and I change how we think about our relationship with the planet, we will find a lot of power and wisdom to make positive change in simple but profound ways. In the last of our three part series on redefining our relationships, we dive into our relationship with the planet... which can sound kind of vast, and esoteric, but I can promise is you is indeed profound.

It really is often the subtle places - if you know where to look and what inquiries to make bring you the most powerful shifts. Both in your larger perspective that guides your bigger life choices and in the practical everyday and how you feel within your life during this intense time on the planet.

Join me, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor, author and teacher, for this episode of Feminine Power Time: Making the Planet Personal.

What is Your Relationship to the Planet? Just that question alone is a mind shifter and consciousness elevator ... my relationship with the planet... hmmm, what would become possible if you were intentional about your relationship?? 

Tune in to find out as we dive into a series of wisdom bytes meant to give you something to chew on and contemplate and a handful  of wisdom inquiries to support you to make wiser, different choices that expand possibility.

As we always do at Feminine Power Time - I will marry the timeless ancient wisdom with the modern day ...

What if...

  • We were stewards of land vs. owners of property?
  • We saw planet not as a resource but as our home?
  • We valued cultivating prosperity over accumulating wealth? 
  • We saw ourselves as global citizens vs. tribal protectors?
  • We saw ourselves as part of nature vs. nature something we visit, observe or live in?

Consider the choices you make in big and small ways:

  • What do I take for granted, that it will always be there? 
  • How can I think globally and act locally?
  • What simple choices can I make as act of harmonic defiance - that have the power to inspire others too to do things differently in way that creates harmony?

And then lastly, I'll share with you a dis-ease that is affecting all of us, that is one of the root causes for the disease we see on the planet. I call it the IHF, the ignorant human factor. Learn how you can cure it within yourself and also use it to find compassion for others. And ultimately use it to fuel and focus what your part is to do a human's whose current home is earth.

See you for the conversation!

Christine

P.S. As we move into March Equinox, which is a time for shifting our patterns, so we create a rhythm that is in alignment I am going to be shifting the posting day of new episodes to SUNDAYs. 

I've been feeling into a new rhythm and this is what feels right for both of us. That way I can tape it on Fridays without feeling like I have to rush to get it out to you. And you can expect it on Sunday morning so that you can have it to set up your week. You will get it right to your feed. And if Sunday doesn't work, you can listen to it anytime that week.

I'll talk more about this next week as an example of practically using the feminine wisdom way of working.

But for now, you can rely on the Sunday rhythm until June Solstice when I will check in again to see how it's working.

Our relationships with other people are some of our greatest joys and challenges ... they stretch us in so many different ways... they are teachers, catalysts, and initiators. And by nature, they change over time. When we are in relationship to our relationships, we gain the power to make shifts in them before they become sources of drama, distress, and dis-ease.

But let's be honest, most of us spent more time in our education learning math and memorizing facts we will never us, and not enough time on what it looks like to be a human who knows how to maintain, nurture and grow healthy relationships. Let alone how to have the kinds of courageous and compassionate connections and conversations that are needed to navigate the emotional terrain of our relationships with each other. 

While I could do a whole separate podcast on relationships, and maybe I will someday, I decided to focus this episode of Feminine Power Time #149 of "How to Shift Your Relationships so They Work For You."  And I invited the man who taught me about 85% of what I know about relationship and who often has saved me from relationship landmines. This is #2 of 3 in our series of Redefining Our Relations.

Join me, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and my partner in life, love and business Noah Martin. Together, we dive into:

  • Where the power lives to make shifts in the relationship that are not working for you
  • How to tell when a relationship is not working for you
  • Where NOT to focus trying to do things differently

And 

  • How to identify your triggers and the ways you are creating the reality you don’t want
  • How to see what’s happening with the other person which empowers you to change things vs. blame things

We’ll share some practical tools you can use in real time such as:

  • The power distortions to beware of : Co-signing and Control
  • How to tell if you have a potential thriving partnership or a relationship its time to let go
  • How to ask for what you need to create harmony
  • What to do when conversations start to go sideways

And then send you into the world to try this and see what happens - brave, courageous soul!

Relationships are one of the ways we can create a better world for ourselves and the planet. It’s not for the faint at heart … but it’s where the gold is.

See you there.

Christine
