Mother Love: The Love That Can Hold You Through Your Changes, Challenges, Expansions & Uncertainty
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. I've updated the start and end with a special reading and practice this year.
What is Mother Love? 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....
"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 do. In 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 P.S.

Staying Sustained Through Change: Practices & Perspectives to Make The Shift with More Ease
How do you stay centered, clear, calm and sustained as you go through changes in your life - relationship, career, home, health? Whether you want the change and are intentionally creating it or it's a happening that you didn't ask for but find yourself in, when you can name the change as a 'threshold' you are crossing and moving through elevates everything.
Almost everyone I know if they are aware, conscious and choosing to grow through the catalyzing times we are in, is walking through a threshold crossing. While they are always challenging, they don't have to take you down or drive you to push through or run the other way.
There is wisdom - practices and perspectives - to share and apply now and in the months and years to come to whatever changes and shifts we find ourselves in -- in ways that empower us to be in co creation with the Universe and each other.
Most of us didn't get this wisdom in our traditional education or leadership training. I've crossed thresholds many times (more on the word threshold in the Podcast) and have learned some things I thought might help bring more ease, empowerment, and grace to you.
Wisdom and pratices that seem simple that one could discount them for lack of significance. But in truth, true wisdom is usually stated quite simply but is anything but simple.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time #182: Staying Sustained Through Change: Practices & Perspectives for Making Shifts with More Ease, we will dive into some of these such as:
Thresholds - what their nature is and why you want to name yours Purposeful Patience Focused Fluidity It's Happening! Travel in Flock Formation Wise Advisors to the Left And also we'll dive into some of the teachings in Overwhelmed and Over It about sustainable change and growth and apply them to whatever current shifts you are going through, including:
Setting the pace and rhythm of your day, week, month and year 3 Harmonic Rhtyhms of a Sustainable Pace And I will walk you through practices to:
Keep your heart and spirit light vs weighed down Keep your mind clear and open vs. future tripping and wound up Keep your body free from holding stress Tune in. See you there.

181: Self Empowerment: Power Leaks, Sovereignty & Embodying Our Pure Power (#4 of 4 in Self Love Series)
Self Empowerment.... Be Empowered... Own your Power ... Stand in your power ... these are words that we see and hear alot more these days, but what does embodying our power really mean? What is self-empowerment? What does sovereignty have to do with all of this?
How do you know if you are coming from your pure power rooted in wholeness or distorted power rooted in woundedness? How do you reveal where you are giving your power away - leaking power - in subtle but signifcant ways?
I've been exploring, researching and teaching self-empowerment as one of the 10 branches of self-love for over a decade. I first heard the word sovereignty in 2006 and it rang through my body like a deep truth I knew in my bones, but didn't have a mental understanding of.
Being the wordsmith and wisdom student I am, of course I looked up the current definitions of both - unsatifactory. I started studying power and realized pretty quickly how distorted our cultural concepts and expressions of power are. And I dove deep into where we as humans, especially women and girls, give away our power in unconscious ways. Or express power in distorted ways that actually diminish our influence.
Over the years I have created new defintions of power and sovereignty, practices to strengthen both, and ways to reveal where our leaks and strengths lie.
For starters - here's the definition of self-empowerment
Self-empowerment is choosing to take care of and responsiblity for your life by acting to create the life you really desire, without apology or requiring approval from others.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time, #4 of 4 in our Self Love Series, we'll dive into the top branch of the Tree of Self Love, Self Empowement: Power Leaks, Sovereignty, Embodying Our Pure Power :
Define Self Empowerment and Sovereignty 5 Signs of a strong self-empowerent and 5 signs of weak self empowerment Difference between 'power' that is reckless , suppressed or distorted in you, and power rooted in wholeness 5 Power Leaks - which are affecting you How this all shows up in our relationships to others, ourselves and the organizations we work in/with How to speak from and stand in your pure power in everything from relationships to salary negotiations without being an ass or a pushover. I'll guide you through some self-reflection inquiries as well. If you have the Madly in Love With ME book or Overwhelmed and Over It, grab them as I'll be referencing them in our conversation and exploration.
And come over the Feminine Wisdom Cafe where I've posted the full definition of Sovereignty and we're inviting everyone to share what Sovereignty means to them.

POWER PAUSE - HARMONIZE: 4 Inquiries to Shift Your Habits, Choices, & Relationships into Harmony for the Months Ahead
Join Christine Arylo for this Feminine Power Time, POWER PAUSE - HARMONIZE: 4 Inquiries to Shift Your Habits, Choices, & Relationships 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:
Illuminate the imbalances in the different realms of your life - so they don't become drama, disease, disaster and distress 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 Focus on and committ to the intentions, projects, relationships that are ready and ripe to grow and prosper 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 personal and organizational 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 50 minute power pause with 4 simple but mighty inquiries - like a mini Harmony Adjustment for your life
Look at your sacred work and career - what is in harmony? What is out of harmony? What is calling for your attention? Look at your relationships - what is in harmony? What is out of harmony? What is calling for your attention ? Look at your health, wealth, home - what in harmony? What is out of harmony? What is calling for your attention now? 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.
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

The Heart of Self Love: Self-Compassion, Care & Pleasure (#3 of 4)
Self-compassion, self-care and self-pleasure are three of branches of self-love that make up the 'heart line.' When these kinds of self love are strong within us, we are stronger and healthier in our hearts - emotionally, physically and spiritually.
With a strong heart line of self-love we are able to be both compassionate and courageous. Able to give sympathy and empathy to others, with healthy boundaries, and without becoming too emotionally entagled that we lose ourselves.
We have the internal foundation to both give and recieve, without guilt. Able to give to and support others and the work and causes we care for, and receive what we need to be sustained and valued in our exchange.
Instead of giving and giving like well that runs dry, we give and receive, so the water keeps flowing. So instead of feeling like we have to sacriifce our souls for work, success, stability or a cause, we feel nourished.
We RETAIN our radiance vs become dried up prunes, burned out lights, and self sacrificing martyrs or machines.
This heart line trifecta is core to our power, our presence and our personal wellness and happiness. But like most of the realms of self-love, few are educated on what self-compassion, self-care and self-pleasure really are. And even fewer are taught how to practically apply this to our lives, relationships, work, and choices.
Which is why in this episode of Feminine Power Time #180: The Heart of Self Love: Self-Compassion, Self-Care & Self-Pleasure (#3 of 4 in our Self Love Series) we will dive into each of these three branches including:
Self Compassion - 5 of the 8 facets of self compassion and how to identify what kind of compassion you need most right now Self-Care - what self-care really is and how to tap into your true needs so you give and receive, both. Self-Pleasure - this is how your SOUL gets nourished. I'll lead you through a meditation for each branch to tune into the ENERGY of these branches and give you a PRACTICE for each. SO we can infuse this into your life now.
The truth is - we can do more for the world and those people and causes we love when we are full in our hearts.
Self sacrifice to the point of making ourselves sick, resentful and giving in ways that are not valued or given a harmonious exchange is a learned behavior. Supported by the burnout matrix.
You can choose to liberate yourself out of the burnout matrix, and in doing so, you unleash more of your radiance to be a light in this world.
Tune in. And then come to the personal wellness and leadership wisdom session - Overcoming Overwhelm - and we'll dive in more.

179: Strengthen SELF-TRUST (#2 of 4 in Self Love Series_
What is self-trust? How do you know if your self trust is strong or weak? And how do you strengthen your self-trust? I would love to live in a world in which all people from 11 to 111 knew the answers to these questions... where we were taught the fundatmentals of self trust this from a very young age ... but alas, we are not there yet.
But change starts with each of us, so today we take a deep dive into self-trust, these inquiries and apply this self trust practically to your life now ... where you need it the most.
This episode of Feminine Power Time - "Strengthen Self Trust" is the 2nd in a 4 part series on Self-Love. Self-trust is one of the 10 branches of self-love.
When I created the body of self-love work that breaks self-love down so you can see where you are weak and strong, the metaphor of a tree came through. Self-trust is the trunk of the tree - everything stems from here. Self-acceptance is the root ball. Self-worth the roots.
Self trust is:
Choosing to listen to and follow the guidance of your inner voice, believing you know what is right for you, even when other people think or say otherwise.
Join me for this exploration as we:
* Illuminate the signs of a weak and strong self trust
* How self trust shows up in our careers, relationships and life choices.
* I pinpoint from a self love perspective, what we need to do as adults to regain and rebuild self-trust
* I take you through one of the most powerful self trust processes I created, to bring self love to the places and ways you have not followed and betrayed your inner knowing and guidance ... which when healed, keeps you from making unconscious choices.
If you want to learn more about self-trust, read chapter 8 in Madly in Love with ME and chapter 1 in Overwhelmed and Over It.
A little heads up: Be prepared to connect with yourself at a heart and self honesty level. Nothing to be scared of, going here is where your power and freedom is. Just wanted to let you know we aren't skimming the surface here when we dive into self-love.
I'll share my journey with self-trust from a self-love perpsective too. I wouldn't ask you to do something I have not done myself, more than one time.
With great heart,

Feminine Power Time Reminds Me Why I Practice What I Practice
I have had the pleasure of working with Christine Arylo via her Path of Self-Love School and her Feminine Wisdom Way School. Her work is profound and deeply needed in the world.
Before I review the podcast I would like to speak about the woman behind the work. Christine Arylo has a big heart. She not only teaches about Feminine Wisdom, she is 100% devoted to practicing it in her life, work, and relationships. I’ve been on the receiving end of her generosity and compassion when times were tough in my life (in-between jobs, re-locating, etc.) and it was making being a part of her school less and less doable for me. I didn’t see a way around it. I was going to need to say goodbye to the support she offered. Next thing I know, Christine and her team reached out to support me. They didn’t have to, but they chose to. I’ve never felt so HELD. This first-hand experience of being fully met has made its way into my cells. Since then, I have devoted my life to Christine’s teachings and practices. I look forward to working with Christine again and again.
As for the podcast, I give it a solid 5 stars. I highly recommend tuning in to Feminine Power Time if you desire to learn about the root causes of the unsustainable systems we operate in (healthcare, education, corporate, government, market, etc). Christine illuminates this and invites us to commit to practices that help us cultivate an elevated reality within our hearts so that the individual choices, we make in our own lives, can shift the unsustainable systems we live in. I tune in to her podcast to learn about the systems I live in and to remind myself why I practice what I practice.
If you have ever experienced burnout, overwhelm, or desire to live a life that allows you to be nourished on all levels vs. you trying to keep up with all that needs doing, tune in to Feminine Power Time and listen to what Christine has to share. You will find that your experience is symptom of a much larger unsustainable systemic reality and that you’re not the only one. Yours is a shared experience and theres a different way to live.
