What You Need to Follow Your Dreams and Succeed


Are you still in touch with your biggest dream for your life?

So many of the women I talk to have allowed the noise of the world to drown out their dreams. If you've been too caught up in doing to do much dreaming, it's time to pay attention to where the juice is. Go within and ask yourself, what makes you feel energized, connected and joyful?

It takes courage to follow your dreams. But consider this: the Universe is dreaming a bigger dream for you than you could ever dream for yourself. If you're limiting yourself to only what you can see, you're way off the mark in terms of what is possible for you.

What you need to follow your dreams is a way to connect with your purpose in life. You have a personal calling that is as unique as a snowflake. The best way to succeed is to do what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service. You have to allow the Universe to lead the way and you have to be willing to work hard. When you're connected to the energy...

The Things that Really Matter


However storm-tossed your life's journey might be, you can always count on a source of calm in the depths of your inner being - if only you knew how to find it. But amidst all the turbulence of your busy life, your mind chatter and disturbing emotions, where do you even begin to look?

Here's the secret...

You close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and take a deep dive within. You focus on love, harmony, and the spirit - for these are the things that really matter. These are the essentials that provide a foundation for living more at ease with yourself, with each other, and with whatever life brings.

Every visit to the Soulwoman Sanctuary brings with it the gift of potent reminders to tune into the deep stillness and tranquility that you can find in a life of simplicity, acceptance, gratitude, love, peace, and faith. When you enter into the stillness at the core of yourself, you are touched by a power greater than your own. It's a place of strength, hope and renewal emerging from...

Do You Believe in Miracles?

 

There you are... and it gradually dawns on you that there is a massive disconnect between the life you've always dreamed of living - and your actual situation.

Thing is, you've become good at wearing a mask. You manage to pay the bills on time and from the outside it may even look like you've got it made. But those periods of quiet desperation, those times when you feel everything caving in on you - you keep those to yourself. You are struggling, and you know it. But you hide it beautifully.

Perhaps, deep down, you know there has to be some other way to live, a better way to look at the world, a way to touch life more fully. Perhaps you get a glimpse of it by chance: you buy new shoes, start a new business, or take a trip to Italy. You fall in love. You win the Lotto. For a short while, things are different. Life takes on a richness and clarity and you start to believe that things will be different now. You've found happiness. But then those feelings of joy start to...

A Simple Ritual for Self-Forgiveness

This morning in my quiet time, I was reflecting on mistakes. You know, those blunders we make that fill us with a deep sense of regret and force us to inwardly cringe. The ones that give us a sinking feeling or endure hot flashes of embarrassment - all of which are signs that those memories are still locked in our energy field.

Know what I'm talking about...?

Lucky for us, every day is a good day for self-forgiveness. So let's use our mistakes to show us where we've allowed our lives to get smaller than they were meant to be, release the need to replay those limiting decisions in our minds... and move on.

If you don't know how to forgive yourself, you may want to create a sacred ritual to let go. Sit in a quiet space, burn incense oils like nutmeg (to learn from past mistakes) or star jasmine (to release self-criticism). Hold a crystal that amplifies self-forgiveness like hematite, peridot, okenite or smoky quartz, and breathe deeply and gently. Then use the following affirmation to...

Wondering What It's Like to be in Sacred Circle with Us?

Well, in our private Circle groups, we frequently notice heart-warming comments from women who feel they have finally 'found their home'. For some of our members, after years of never feeling completely comfortable or fully accepted elsewhere in their lives, it's not uncommon for our Circles to offer exactly the kind of deep, unconditional connection and support they've been craving.

And it's not just the invaluable connection and support that Circles offer in times of crisis. It's laughter. Companionship. A cheer squad, standing beside us while we take our first, tentative steps outside our comfort zones. It's a 'family' ready to celebrate our growth spiritually, and in so many other important arenas in our lives.

Sometimes, for the first time, our members feel confident enough to share their creativity with other people. For all their lives, they've been told they're not 'enough'. Not good enough, not clever enough, not artistic or musical or sporty enough... In a circle of women,...
