Courageous Women feel fear and have doubt too, the difference is they meet and move through the uncertainty to make choices that feel right for them…regardless of what is considered acceptable or feels comfortable.
Some call this crazy, I name it brave. If you look back through herstory you’ll see powerful women who dared to conjure up courage to step past their own fear and the projection of fear placed on them from others to follow their heart’s deep wisdom.
These trailblazers were often called “crazy” as a way to diminish and discount their feminine power and intuitive wisdom.… but in truth these women were the ones who lived freely and fully regardless of external circumstances or opinion.
They dared to stand in their true soul expression as Courageous Wise Women. Some wise women’s courage changes the masses. And for many of us, while our courage may only touch as far as our children, friends, peers, clients, communities and selves, the amount of courage it takes to stand up and lead and speak from your heart is just as immense, and brave.
Truthfully... feminine wisdom is not “crazy,” but it is crazy powerful.
And we need it more than ever to navigate these intense times, where we are each being called to step forward, make change, stretch ourselves out of what feels comfortable and in line with conventional wisdom to what feels empowering and aligned to a much deeper, human wisdom.
This Feminine Power Time: Crazy Wisdom: Conjuring Up Courage and Clarity in Intense Times is a "Salon" - originally broadcast as a live video stream and virtual circle by Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and teacher. These salons are feminine wisdom sessions that go into deeper levels of teaching and wisdom based on what we are experiencing.
Usually streamed during one of the 'power days', Christine invites you to join her and other courageous souls around the world to:

ELEVATE Feminine Leadership Immersion - Save the Date - April 25-28, Seattle Coast.
Most women operate at half power, trying to assimilate into ways of working that don't support how we naturally operate and create, undervaluing ourselves and our work, and taking more responsibility than is ours to take on. We care about the world. We want to make things better. But the way we've learned to lead and work is based on models that do not support nor tap into our 'feminine' power and wisdom.
But what the heck is the 'feminine' and why do we need it? Can't we just all try to be better people, grow our careers, and talk about leadership without needing to gender modify it? The answer is NO.
If we desire to create a world in which there is pay equity, gender equity, connection instead of isolation, where we grow ourselves, our families and our work/business in ways that sustain and nourish us vs like some crazy Monsanto accelerated growth model, we have to LEARN what the feminine is... REVEAL the full range of our power... and then VALUE and APPLY a different way to work, live and lead.
There's much to say about Feminine Leadership and we are not going to cover it all today - I don't want to add to your overwhelm love! I want to give you the path out of it, which feminine leadership and wisdom offer us.
After studying tradition leadership for over two decades and realizing it didn't have what I needed as a woman or as a human who didn't want to perpetuate a domination and consumption model for business and living, I sought out 'the feminine' (even though I had no idea what that was at the time. Over the last decade I've applied this Wisdom to my own life and work and shared it with many more.
Today, is the start of on ongoing conversation here at Feminine Power Time, the first of our deep dives into Feminine Leadership, a way of living, working and creating I've devoted my life to teaching and living.
For today's session "Feminine Leadership: What Does it Look Like to Lead As a Woman?" we will dive into 5 foundational realms of Feminine Leadership, so we can open up to some deeper wisdom, new insights and expanded possibilities that and support us in being the change we wish to see, including:
When we lead naturally as a whole woman we embody both our masculine and feminine powers in ways that naturally lead us to creating realities that create more harmony, sustainability and prosperity.
We will end this Feminine Power Time with a short meditation that leads you to connect with HOW big a difference you are making -so you can stop pressuring yourself and start acknowledging yourself. And will help you take the pressure of taking on more responsibility than is yours... feminine leadership leads us to just do our part.
We are just getting scratching the surface here on Feminine Leadership. To explore more check these out:

Couples who dream together thrive together. People who are clear and centered in their own dream create partnerships that support them to soar. Sadly, most of us have never been taught how to create such relationships. We are kinda clueless about what 'dreaming' together really is, and how to create the kinds of relationship where both people's dreams can be met.
It's so easy to get bogged down by the day to day reality that our relationships can become all about getting through our lives, taking care of the money, kids, house vs. have a shared dream that inspires each person and holds the center for how you make your life choices.
Or if you are single, and are not clear on your personal dream or you don't have an imprint of what a true strong partnership looks like, you can end up choosing a mate who isn't capable of supporting you to create the life your heart and soul desires.
Over the past 17 years, I've had the honor of knowing (and living with, working with and being in sacred partnership) with one of the wisest people I know when it comes to relationships and how people work and don't work within them... my soul partner, Noah Martin, and man who has helped many women, men and couples get clear on their dreams, strengthen their connection, change their roles and open to more love.
So I've invited Noah to join us for this Feminine Power Time with me Christine Arylo, Dream Partnerships: Creating a Relationship Where Both People Thrive. I like to invite Noah to join us every so often to share a man's point of view and truthfully straight up good practical wisdom on relationships.
We can't talk about Feminine Power and Feminine Leadership if we also don't talk about relationship, because our relationships have a huge impact on our ability to have the impact we desire, do our sacred work and be supported along the way. Here's what we dive into...
Dreams are the fuel that allows you to live your life in connection and joy, even when stuff gets hard.

How do we "BE" with what we are seeing in the world all around us - the anger, the greed, the disrespect, the separation, etc. etc.- without becoming consumed by it, sucked into it or feeling like we have to spiritually bypass it? How do you speak up, stand up and show up to be the agent of change, truth, compassion that you desire to be, when everything feels so overwhelming, compressed and out of control?
The yogis predicted we would come to this time of madness. Our role is to be able to stay present with what is happening in this world, be agents for change and elevation, not forces who add to the chaos, frenzy and fear.
How do you stay present with what's happening in the world without being overcome by it? Whether it's happening in politics, in power plays on your job or in relationships, or in your community or within yourself, we need super powers and wisdom for staying present with what is, staying human in the process, but not becoming part of the very things we wish to change.
In this Feminine Power Time, with Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor, MBA and Wisdom Teacher, dive in for:
Chaos loves to speed things up. But we lose our power when we become part of the sand storm. We embody our power when we stand still in the midst of it, see what is real, see the fear game being played. We gain an elevated perspective that empowers us to act in ways that can create powerful change.
This is the time to start slowing down, not speeding up. We need to step out of our daily rhythyms to hear the deeper wisdom within.

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 with 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 overhwelm, 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:
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, 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.

When you are 'tuned in' to your inner wisdom and your channel is clean and clear, wow can you step forward with courage, stay focused on what matters, and make wise choices for yourself, your work/business and in your relationships. But when your wisdom channels are blocked up or mucked up, wow can you make some bad choices, shrink back, spin out, work too hard and give too much and generally create havoc vs harmony for yourself.
But how do you know if your inner guidance system is tweaked out vs tuned in?
I just had to add this bonus Feminine Power Time to complete our series of Feminine Wisdom: What is it? Why is it essential? How do you use it? It will be the 5th in this Feminine Wisdom Series. Join me, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and wisdom teacher, for a conversation we have to have to make sure we are responding from our truth vs reacting from our fear.
If we aren't self aware of how we work inside and understand the signs we are operating from distorted emotions and ideas, we can't support ourselves or get the support we need to face the levels of change, stretch, possibility and uncertainty we face.
Join me and We'll dive into:
I invited a special guest to join us for this Feminine Power Time, Stacey Hoffer, the director of programs at The Path of Self Love School, whose "inner mean girls" = the force that disempowers and distorts your inner wisdom = are different than mine.
I'm bringing my Achievement Junkie, Move the Bar Belinda, and my Invincible Super Woman, who I haven't named yet! Stacey brought her Rejection Queen and her Overly Optimistic Cheerleader. You will Love their names!
If you'd like to join Stacey and me for this falls Empower Your Inner Wisdom, Expose Your Inner Mean Girl, personal transformation circle, learn more here www.EmpowerYourInnerWisdom.com
You have the power to change this world and change the systems that you work and live by how and who you show up as, and how you choose to design your life, lead your team, family, business, organization... You have the power to change the things in your life that cause unhealthy and unnecessary pressure. You don't have to accept that 'this is just how things are."
You just need to know how to access and activate the power within you that stems from the depths of your internal feminine wisdom.
Which is why in this Feminine Power Time, the #4 in our Feminine Wisdom Series, we are diving deep into the feminine wisdom super power of "Harmonic Defiance: The Power to Make Shift Happen, the Feminine Way."
Harmonic Defiance is:
The power to make shift happen by choosing to design your life and lead your work, team, family, organization, business, in ways that cultivate harmony, to speak up and question that which does not support sustainability and humanity. And then with that feminine power activated, you dare to do things differently.
You are going to love learning about this and applying it directly to your life right now.
Tune in with me, Christine Arylo, women's leadership advisor, as we explore:
To join Christine in person at her Feminine Wisdom Weekend this fall, go to www.FeminineWisdomRetreat.com
To learn more about the 3-month personal transformation program, Reform Your Inner Mean Girl, Empower Your Inner Wisdom - it's like rehab for your inner critic and super hero training for your inner wisdom go to www.PathofSelfLove.org
We live in a time when you just can't plan out your life 3, 5, 10 years in advance and then follow 'the plan' - although our minds and desires for safety would love that. We live in a time when the world is changing fast, and we are each being 'called up' to new sacred assignments, ways of living and working that our soul signed up for.
These 'soul stretches' and catalysts are calling for us each to step out of comfort zones and step into into a zone where we often can't see how it will work out, how it can work out and if it will work out.
This is where the Feminine Wisdom teaching - the feminine super power of Stepping in the Unknown comes in. It's a different way of operating that most of us were not taught, but it is a REAL thing. In this Feminine Power Time, Stepping in the Unknown with Courage and Clarity to Chart the Path Ahead: Planning the Feminine Wisdom Way, the 3rd in our series on Feminine Wisdom, I'll share the wisdom teaching on Stepping in the Unknown. And make it personal for you so you can work with it and can step through the changes coming with grace and courage, feeling and being supported, including:

Empower Your Inner Wisdom transformational program go to www.PathofSelfLove.org
Intuitive Attunement is my second favorite super power feminine wisdom word of the year. And I think you are going to LOVE it too! When you have it, and know how to cultivate it, you have the inner power to make the best choices for yourself, in your career, relationships, wealth, health, home. Without it, you are often being led by the cultural craziness and your own subconscious emotional commotion.
Intuitive Attunement - you being 'attuned' from the inside out to Divine Wisdom and therefore your own soul wisdom - gives you access to a deep well of wisdom that's connected to your heart and soul - so you can stay true to yourself, and take leaps of faith that backed by sound wisdom.
It surpasses the mind, which can only create what it has experienced before or seen in others, to access insight, guidance and possibility.
But most of us were not taught how to develop nor strengthen our power of Intuitive Attunement, so we operate at half our power, make choices that are jaded by past experiences and often drive by fear, lack or scarcity.
Which is why I've created this Feminine Wisdom Series, focused on a few of the aspects of Feminine Wisdom that we need as leaders and women now. Join me, Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor for this Feminine Power Time episode "Intuitive Attunement: Super Power Your Connection to Divine Wisdom" (#2 in the series) where we dive into:
** And of course, we make this personal with a double dog feminine wisdom dare to attune to your inner wisdom and take a leap this week in an area of your life calling for change or expansion.**
Tune in. Take the dare. And start to strengthen your Intuitive Attunement.

** If you missed the first in the series on Feminine Wisdom "SYNCHRONICITY: The power of working with the flow" make sure to listen to the previous episode, #67 with special guest, Nilima Bhat, author of Shakti Leadership.
Of course we all want to live in the flow. Have things - invitations, opportunities, people, resources - 'come to us' vs having to go out and kill the proverbial meat or attack our lives and work like pushing a boulder up a hill. If given the choice between having to hustle, network like crazy, and make stuff happen OR having the experience where I'm guided to where to focus, when to act, where things come to me, I'm choosing the latter. Less stress, more spacious. Less pressure, more peace.
But how do you create synchronicity? How do you get into the flow, and most important, how do you stay there? So what you NEED comes to you vs. you exhausting yourself physically to make it happen or mentally to figure out how to plan and strategize to happen?
This is the realm of Feminine Wisdom.
The feminine super powered way of living, leading and succeeding, that most of us were not taught in our traditional education or on the job training.
Which is why it's the focus for this week's Feminine Power Time: "Synchronicity & Shakti Leadership: Working with Feminine Power so Things Happen for You Vs. Pushing and Planning" It's the 1st in a 3 part series (maybe 4, we'll see) on FEMININE WISDOM - what is it, how do you find it and how do you work with it?
I invited a new soul sister to our session today, Nilima Bhat, author of Shakti Leadership, a woman I've been aware of for about 2 years, have wanted to meet, but instead of making it happen, the Great Mama orchestrated a meeting for us over Spring Equinox "unplanned" (more on that in the show, you;ll love this Synchroncity Story!)
I invite you join Nilima and I for this feminine wisdom session, where together we will all explore:

What you focus on grows. So if you desire more connection, love, support, community, and sisterhood tune in! You can’t just leave your relationships – be it intimate partners and family, sisterhood or community – up to chance. Self-empowered people choose to intentionally cultivate and harvest the relationships they desire, in their work and personal life.
in #3 of our Feminine Power Time series on Self Love & Relationships, “Harvest More of What You Desire in Your Relationships by Years End!” Christine Arylo, feminine leadership and wisdom advisor, invites you to join her for an exploration focused on:
If you don’t pause to ask your heart who you desire to be in relationship with and how you desire your current and new relationships to feel, you are missing the power and potential.
Feminine wisdom teaches us:
Be clear about what you desire to harvest and then focus your energy, time and resources there.
This will yield the most impactful results.
(you'll create the love, connection, support, community you desire)

When we lose a relationship with a person we once loved and cared for - be it a friend, a beloved, a relative - it hurts. From death to divorces, breakups with romantic partners or friends, our hearts suffer, they 'break open' because of this loss. And we stand at a choice point: will we use this change as a catalyst to open our hearts to more love and to become even stronger and more fully expressed and empowered beings... or we will we close off, contract, protect or stuff down the feelings and so have to keep receiving the spiritual curriculum again and again?
In the 2nd of our 3 part series on Relationship and Self Love, join me Christine Arylo for this Feminine Power Time: "Transforming Relationship Heartbreak into Personal Catalysts" I've invited a special guest, Kristine Carlson, NY Times Best Selling Author of the new book, From Heartbreak to Wholeness.

I have met so many smart women, and have been one myself, who can show up strong and capable in their work, and for their friends and family, and even appear to be happy and physically healthy, but when it comes to their relationships, the make unhealthy, sabotaging sometimes even toxic choices for themselves.
The short answer - at the root of all relationship settling, self sacrifice and self sabotage is a lack of self love.
I know this because I've lived it, watched too many friends go through it and watch their children make the same mistakes. We get trained in math and reading, but not in love and relationship, which has so much more of an impact on how our lives turn out, yes?
I wrote my first book Choosing ME Before WE, left my corporate job and founded the Path of Self Love School because this wisdom it not being taught or lived and too many women, girls, men and boys suffer because of it.
Nothing will derail the success and wellness, and our capacity to be leaders than unhealthy, toxic relationships.

The yogis say when our intuition is strong and clear we can know our truth and the best path to take within 9 seconds. But when your subconscious is cluttered or clogged due to stress, fear, too much going on, other people's stuff your intuitive guidance system gets tweaked, cloudy and confused. So you make choices that are not in your best interest.
But how do you know if your channels of intuition are clear or cloudy? And how do you clear your intuition channels so you can make choices that are aligned to your highest consciousness and good?
I am just back from an 8 day yoga teacher training in the New Mexico desert, and I brought you back some souveniers... to support you in clearing out the blocks and clutter in your field so the choices you make this next part of the year are guided by Wisdom, keeping you true to your path and yourself.

Most of us feel like we dont 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.

I'm sharing this with you as we approach the mid year point because it's so crazy relevant to the wisdom we need to pace ourselves and stay focused on what matters this next part of the year. I broadcast it last year at this same time, listened to it myself today and was inspired by what I said - lol :) Seriously, timeless wisdom for this time now. Tune in... xoxo
About this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo: We lead crazy paced lives in part because we have made the unconscious choice to allow the rhythm of our life to be dictated by the pace the patriarchy and over culture has set - keeping us frenzied, fragmented and not focused on what truly matters. And there is another choice...
Feminine wisdom shows us how to be in the world without being of the world, by taking the powerful act to consciously set the patterns and rhythms of days, weeks, months and years in a way that creates harmony, not havoc.
It is the 3rd in the Breaking Through the Myth of Balance Series, as we illuminate a different way to live - so we can focus on what matters, be the most powerful presences of change, without exhausting ourselves and our resources including:

Each of our hearts has a spectrum of emotion that ranges from SAD to MAD that is our super power, if we know how to yield it and be with in correctly. But most people have not gotten training on how to use these energies in ways that fuel the change we desire vs. destroy the very thing we care so deeply about.
There are days when my heart can feel so heavy with sadness at the state of this world and what humans do to each other. If I don't allow myself to feel this and then move through it, it can drag me down like a grief pool of stagnant water. There are other days when my heart ignites like a fire storm, angry and mad sparking frustration and sometimes when it gets too big, it distorts into righteousness.
So when you are SAD or MAD at the state of the world, or things happening in it, or what specific people are doing ... how do you use those emotions powerfully in ways that elevate the situation and honor your feelings vs. expressing those feelings in distorted ways (or not at all) harming yourself and others?
What do we do with this anger and grief? And how do we use it?

New beginnings are such a gift - from a new baby, to a new relationship or friendship, a new job, new home, new project or new phase of life. But most of us miss the gift because instead of savoring the process, creating the space needed to allow things to unfold and emerge... we rush in, put pressure on ourselves to hit the ground running and don't take the space needed. And the foundation of the new thing is not strong enough to endure.
Instead of savoring the experience we stress out during it.
In relationship, we rush in to intimacy too fast and give our bodies and hearts away before the relationship foundation is strong enough. We so desire to be safe, loved and to know it 'will work out' we miss the dance of growing intimacy.
In jobs, we start new ones right away instead of giving ourselves the space between to decompress and regenerate. So we leave one job exhausted and start the next one depleted, because the system 'needs us"
In giving birth, we go back to work weeks or a few months later, because we live in a system that doesn't honor human life force, the mother or the need to be nurtured.
In new projects, new homes, and any new beginning, we don't give ourselves the space to settle in and let things unfold and emerge, to savor the experience. We stress the whole way through to get it done, missing the beauty.
In finishing school or finishing a project we complete one milestone and think we are supposed to have it all figured out to start the next thing now.
This is systemic. Inside the systems and inside of ourselves. Causing huge amounts of stress, and pressure by truncating the space needed for endings and beginnings ... such precious sacred time.

One of the great gifts I receive is talking to lots of wise, conscious women and men around the world. And through those conversations I start to see patterns emerge - for what people are experiencing during these intense and changing times. When you see the patterns happening OUT there, you start to understand whats happening INSIDE you so much more.
And instead of feeling like you are alone or crazy you start to see that you are right on track. You elevate out of the swirl or the emotion of it. And you gain wisdom about what is REALLY happening through you, not to you.
Every so often I feel inspired to do these episodes of Feminine Power Time to share with you what I see happening 'out there' so you can use that wisdom to apply to what is happening in your life, now.
Join me Christine Arylo, for this feminine power podcast, where we will explore:
Other Feminine Power Time Episodes to tune into to deepen in some of this include "The Lie About Time" "Are You Supported" "Courageous Feminine Leadership"
To join me for the mid year Power Pause retreat - a Feminine Wisdom Weekend, July 27-29th at Kripalu, learn more here.
Courage - where does it come from? How do you cultivate it so that you have the inner strength and clarity to meet the challenges and catalysts in your life? So you can expand vs contract? So you make grounded choices that are also guided by divine grace?
Courage in the feminine is not false bravado, it's not without fear, and it does not come from the mind. Courage comes from the heart, it requires us to feel, and it also requires us to step forth out of our comfort zones.
When we cultivate it consciously as part of our daily practices, we gain the 'super power' to say NO to what limits us, say YES to what supports and expands us, even if it scares us and is different than what everyone else is doing or what conventional wisdom says.
Tune into this Feminine Power Time - Courageous Leadership - with Christine Arylo, feminine leadership advisor and wisdom teacher, for a soul provoking, heart invoking, and practical revealing and teaching on Courage through the feminine lense, including:

Join Christine for her mid year Power Pause - a feminine wisdom weekend at Kripalu Retreat Center - July 27-29
Spring Equinox is one of the four most powerful times of the year to take a 'power pause' and reset your rhythm, patterns and habits so they support you to create the life, work, relationships you desire. When you pause at this time, 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... & you gain clarity on how to focus your life force so what you spend your time, energy & money create what you desire.

"Follow your heart." It sounds simple, even trite, but it's anything but. This wisdom byte is DIRECTION on how we navigate these intense and changing times. If you are facing a change, or feeling like you need to make a change or knowing that a change is coming, you can either step in with courage and compassion and grace or you can suffer, spin, get stuck and miss out on the expanded possibility you are being called into, but you just can't see yet.
Stepping in the unknown... deciphering the messages of your heart... conjuring up courage and clarity... having deep trust... these are not skills we where taught in school or on the job - although we should be. As leaders in our lives and work and families, we have to know how to tune into the heart - not the mind - where the answers to the how, when, where lie.
In this Feminine Power Time, the last recorded in her home in Valley the Moon (I'm in a big change) Christine Arylo, women's leadership advisor and wisdom teacher invites you to bring the change you are facing or feeling into this heart provoking, illuminating conversation to:
In this session, Christine will help you slow down and tap into what your heart is guiding you to shift, change and step into, now, and the path ahead for allowing it to happen with grace and ease.
To join Christine at a retreat this year
In our traditional mainstream culture, we are told we have to build our careers, work hard, and climb to the top - which is why we all feel so overwhelmed and over it, and why we never seem to 'get there.' We pressure ourselves to be there now. Or we lack the courage to go for what our heart's begging us to do. At this time on the planet, we are being called to DO THIS DIFFERENTLY- to take our power back from outdated ways of thinking about work and career which limit our freedom and expression. And be the powerful, wise presence we came here to be, self expressed, doing good in the world and also being SUPPORTED as we grow, take risks, put ourselves out there, and make shift happen.
I invited my good friend Jenny Blake, author of the book Pivot, and another woman who like me has chosen to continually evolve herself and her work in the world in ways that create more freedom, meaning, expression and goodness in the world. We've both cut ourselves free from the golden handcuffs, learned lessons about being entrepreneurs that business school didn't prepare us for, but that the WISDOM sought from other sources did.
Since I am in the midst of a big PIVOT myself in my sacred work (more on this SHIFT in the podcast), I invited Jenny to join us this week so we can pull back the veil and get real and wise about:
Stepping out of the rat race, linear race to the top, "safe" structure is a courageous act ... Redefining yourself, evolving your work, making choices outside of conventional wisdom also DARING. But what other way is there to live if we truly desire to be free vs be trapped in realities that suck our life force out of us?
Join us, tune in. I can't wait to share my PIVOT and invoke the Sacred Rebel, who dares to make shift happen, in her own world and then in the world at large.

At the root of almost every struggle we face is a lack of self love most people are just totally unaware of this. Unfulfilling and toxic relationships, stuck or overbearing careers, money and health challenges, chronic overwhelm, worry and stress - signs of a weak self love.
Our mainstream culture does not teach us self-love, instead it focuses on the surface solutions - find a soulmate, get a new job, lose 10lbs, stop overspending, find balance, etc. These may provide a short term respite, but the change never sticks because we are not getting to the root ... a weak love of self.
And if we don't know what self love really or how to cultivate it, how can we teach our children and guide others? We can't.
