“And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.” – Unknown
Have you ever had an experience so incredible that it was hard to put into words? An experience so beautiful and profound that it opened your heart and elevated your soul, but the English language is horribly insufficient for such awe?
That's how I feel about this past weekend.
This weekend, 25 loving, inspiring, courageous women joined me and Taylor Strecker for Goddess Girls Retreat, and our lives are forever changed.
Imagine feeling safe to share your deepest fears, most secret truths, and greatest hopes – things you haven’t even shared with close friends or family because you’re too afraid of their reaction – and receiving unconditional love, encouragement and support for it all – a hand on your back, someone passing you tissues, hearing that you’re going to be okay.
Imagine sharing your biggest dream – the one that seems silly and impossible and irresponsible – and hearing how AMAZING you’ll be at it!!
Imagine others seeing your truth – seeing your strength when you feel weak, seeing your sweetness when you feel judgmental, seeing your wisdom when you feel broken – and being loved for being yourself.
Imagine laughing for hours with friends for life as you run into the ocean with your clothes on, dance under the moon with abandon, and sip champagne by the pool.
Imagine the kind of sisterhood you’ve always wanted!
As one woman shared, “I've never made such deep friendships in one day before! I truly feel like they're sisters for life.”
Each woman was different – and the same. They had different stories, but similar hearts. One wants a divorce, another struggles with her daughter, and another is finding herself after her kids are out of the house, but under the fear, shame and guilt is the same beautiful spirit wanting to feel alive and free and happy again.
As one woman who lost her job and went through months of struggle shared, “I was driving home and just smiling. I realized I feel happy… just happy.”
You too have a Goddess within. Being a Goddess is being adored for who you are. It's walking with self-confidence, knowing and listening to your heart, and allowing yourself to pursue your desires. It's adoring yourself enough to put your heart first, knowing that when you take care of you, you better take care of others.
And they're already seeing changes in their lives – feeling more patient with kids, being more present at work, feeling confident to end an unhealthy relationship or to start a new career.
This level of growth is possible for you too. All it takes is an open heart, a hopeful spirit, and a supportive Sisterhood.
Something magical happens when women come together in openness, vulnerability, mutual support, and a desire to grow into the empowered women they were born to be. This kind of growth is ONLY possible in Sisterhood.
While Goddess Girls 2017 is over, you can still have this kind of sisterhood, support, love, and expansive soul growth this year. Beginning September 1, I'm launching the next EMPOWERED Sisterhood. EMPOWERED is my premier program for women who want to change their lives from the inside out. You will get clarity on who you are, you will remember your deepest desires, and you will claim your power to go after every dream in your heart. Click here for information and to register.
EMPOWERED is a 4 month journey to your soul's purpose. Through 2 retreats, weekly group calls, 1:1 support from me, and transformational workbooks, you will create a path to live the courageous joyful life you desire.
Jill, a recent EMPOWERED graduate from Illinois says, “Carin looked in my eyes… I wanted to look away, to hide, but she saw me… the real me, the me that I have spent most of my life hiding. She introduced me to an amazing group of women and encouraged me to see them and let them see me. Carin and my Empowered Sisters accept me, encourage me, support me….. they lift me up everyday, each in their own unique way. I accept them, encourage them, support them…. I lift them up everyday, in my own unique way. Imagine what is possible when you are no longer hiding…. when you are EMPOWERED!!!”
TZhe freedom you want is waiting for you. If this speaks to you, let's connect. I'd be honored to do a free 30 minute coaching call with you to determine your path forward and if EMPOWERED is for you. Contact me for a free call.
However, if this kind of Sisterhood speaks to you, you need to act quickly. I only have 3 spots left for EMPOWERED and they will go soon.
No matter what you do next, know that you are worthy of self-love and capable of every dream that you've buried. Know that you have a Goddess within and allow yourself the safe space and community to live it.
With so much love,
