Feminine Power Time:
POWER PAUSE: 6 Inquiries to Honor Your Progress & Reveal What’s Working (or Not) for You

One of the smartest things we can do at the mid year point is to pause, reflect, realign and redesign what we are going to focus our life force, resources and time on. This is true for how you run your work life – business, team, organization, career, classroom, etc. And how you run your personal life – wealth, health, home, relationships. For SO many reasons.

This is what I call taking a Power Pause. It’s a personal and team leadership practice and a core sustainable success principle and also how we make sure we create realities that are both successful in what we desire to create and cause AND that are sustainable.

It’s also a best practice for getting out of overwhelm and the feelings that you are never doing enough or have enough. 

I’ve been doing Power Pauses myself for a decade and every year at this time I teach mid year power pauses, which I call FLOW for focus your life force on what matters, in many different forms. A virtual program/retreat, in person retreats and for women’s leadership groups and teams within organizations.

For you my beloved Feminine Power Time listener, 4x a year I do these special Power Pause episodes that include a series of inquiries that are like a Power Pause appetizer. They give you a taste of the full process, and enough of a taste to give you some wisdom bytes about what you truly desire this coming year.

In this episode, “215:POWER PAUSE: Honor Your Progress & Reveal What’s Working (or Not) for You”, I will share:

  • The power & potential behind quarterly power pausing to create more calm, harmony, alignment (and less anxiety, burnout and overwhelm) for us individually and a society
  • How you can use power pausing to ferret out what’s not working for you – career, relationship, wellbeing, habits, home, money, etc — before it gets to disease, distress or drama.
  • The practice of acknowledging in your BODY your progress and your co-creative power, so you can experience co-creation as a real thing.

I’ll take you through 6 inquiries focused in 2 realms — Feel Good about where you are now (honoring your progress and choices) and Feel Forward to Right For You Next to reveal what wisdom & changes about your design & desires is trying to get your attention.

FEEL GOOD NOW: Looking back at the first part of this year … acknowledge and honor:

1. PROGRESS: Consider the shifts, changes, desires, goals, projects, relationships, etc. that you have been giving energy, time, resources and care to ... “I celebrate that I’ve made progress in …”    

2. PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL CHOICES:  Consider the choices you made internally in the past 6 months, or even last year, that you are now experiencing momentum, movement or physical manifestation in… “I acknowledge & honor that the choice I made to XYZ is now XYZ.”

3. MORE PLEASE: What would I love to keep doing, going, flowing, growing this second part of the year? 


FEEL FORWARD: Reveal what’s working & not – in the 3 main realms of your life of personal foundation (home, health, wealth, practices), relationships + sacred work/career/self-expression so you can make shifts for the next

4. DRAIN: What is draining me? What no longer feels sustainable?

5. SUSTAIN:What is sustaining me? What is giving me energy? Where do I feel the energy?

6. GET WISE & RE-ALIGN : What does all this tell me? What are my feelings and responses revealing about the design of my life, work, relationships, that is not working? About what is working? What am I really desiring to create – to not do and to do differently?
