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!

The Most Important Thing You Can Do

I absolutely love when a life lesson jumps out at me during the day.  It’s like a little surprise; a gift that makes you stop in your tracks and brings you into the present-moment.  What sparks that moment is different for each of us…it could be a sight, sound, phrase, or smell that resonates with us and tugs at our soul.

I was lucky enough to receive one of these gifts a while back when I was watching an interview of Sherri Shepherd.  I was surprised to hear that she actually started out her career-life as a paralegal (yeah, took me by surprise, too!).  She shared how while in that career she felt stressed and unfulfilled, but didn’t really feel motivated enough to make a change. 

Then one day she receive that surprise “gift” I referenced above.  It came in the form of a story about a woman who was dying of stage 4 cancer.  The woman was being interviewed on Oprah and she shared that death is really the only thing that’s guaranteed, but how we live life is the most important thing we can do.  Sherri heard this and was moved at the thought.  We only live this one life; why would we choose not to live our dream life?

Sherri quit her job and pursued acting and stand-up comedy full-time.  

I love stories like that; a few simple words lead to an inspired moment and a leap of faith.  It’s fairly simple, yet not so easy to do.  We know we always have a choice…so why wouldn’t we choose to live our dreams?  Why would we wish for something other than our deepest passion?  Why wouldn’t we try with every ounce of our soul to make this life the life we want?

There’s no lack of excuses, but they all lead to the same regrets.  You know what you must do…It’s time for you to finally take that leap of faith; or at least a tiny step in its direction.

Clutter and Chaos: Is Your Stuff Holding You Back?

For the last few weeks our blog posts have revolved around the theme of spring cleaning and clutter.  Spring is traditionally a time for clearing out the old and freshening up our physical surroundings, but what about our lives?  The unfinished, unused, unresolved, tolerated and disorganized in our lives can really weigh us down in every way, stealing our zest and enthusiasm for life and living, not to mention blocking us from our passions and dreams.

This isn’t a new topic for us, as we’ve shared about clutter and how excess physical, mental and emotional “stuff” can hold us back in life.  In keeping with the theme and the time of year, we share a few of our most read clutter and chaos posts from the past.

Soul Searching Questions: Should It Stay or Should It Go?

Our regular readers are familiar with our Soul Searching Questions and the personal contemplation our questions can stir.  For this post we’ve designed a series of questions meant to encourage reflection of the items that surround you in your life. 

With our busy lifestyles and a trend toward commercialism, we buy, buy, buy and keep, keep, keep.  Soon we find ourselves surrounded by stuff and weighed down by our piles, disorganization and mess. 

If you are finding clutter to take a stronger hold on your life than you would like, work through these questions with a certain pile, collection or category of stuff in mind.  See where your answers lead...

  • Does it lift my energy to think about it or look at it?
  • Do I love it?
  • Do I need it?
  • Does it reflect who I am now in my life?
  • What positive and or negative thoughts, memories or emotions do I associate with it?
  • Does it need to be fixed or repaired, and am I willing to do so now?
  • If I moved tomorrow, would I take it with me?
  • If it is time to let it go, am I going to throw, sell, lend or give it away and when?
