Welcome to the Soul Sisters Blog!

We’re three sisters on a mission to empower and inspire women everywhere to pursue their passions and achieve their dreams. Our story is probably not unlike your own; a tug at the heartstring, a feeling of wanting more from life, a desire to fulfill a divine purpose. It was these relentless yearnings that inspired the concept of Soulspring Groups.

When our souls open up (and they tend to quite often) we’ve got to share! We invite you to read our thoughts (and occasional rants) on women, empowerment, passion, destiny and life! Feel free to share your comments; we love to hear your thoughts (and rants) too! And, become an official follower! It's always fun to see the company we're keeping!

Top 25 Empowerment Quotations for Women


We love a good quotation, and apparently you do too. Often it’s a simple post of a quote on our Facebook page that will draw the most comments and “likes”.

So what is it that draws us to these short lines of text? Is it the feelings of inspiration they provide? Is it the nuggets of wisdom buried in their meaning? Are we so pressed for time that we can only afford the few seconds it takes to read and ponder these sayings? We believe the answer to be, “all of the above”.

We’ve been amassing quotations for years and we’ve built quite the collection. Some are deep, some are funny, and our favorites remind us of the potential and unique power within each woman. We’ve drawn from our quotation library when we’ve needed a lift, and also tapped into this resource when we’ve recognized another is in need of a pick-me-up.

Below we share some of our favorites about women and women’s empowerment. We hope they offer you some inspiration and we invite you to forward this post to a friend who is in need of a power-boost! We know you have your own favorites too, and invite you to post them in the comments area of this blog to help us build an even larger source of empowerment for women everywhere!

Enjoy!

Kim,
Sister of Soul

25. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of god. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make and manifest the glory of god that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

~Marianne Williamson
