"You had the power all along my dear."- Glinda the Good Witch

We are all valuable and have abundant potential. However, there are roadblocks everywhere that bombard us and convince us otherwise. This potential in the core of our being is our inner goddess. Once we can tap into the goddess within us - along with faith, courage, and support from others - we can do wonders.

Welcome to Grateful Goddesses with Karen Pulver. Join Karen on this journey of self-care and self-discovery to unleash your inner goddesses. Take a leap of faith and expand your comfort zones to explore various topics on your life journey. Be vulnerable, be real, and get empowered as you realize your highest potential as a Grateful Goddess.

Karen and her Goddesses are on a path of discovery, and are searching for self-awareness and enrichment of their lives to reach their purpose. Karen is a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a teacher, a friend, and a cancer survivor. She has her own fears and challenges, but she is a doer who loves bringing people together and pushing them to explore things.

She is a Grateful Goddess who is on a journey of discovery and enlightenment, but she is not alone on this ever-evolving journey. She has been lucky to have been joined by like-minded women, all of which are synergistically sharing a spiritual purpose of realizing their potential. Each has a Grateful Goddess within that wants to be nurtured and listened to and, ultimately, shared with the world.

On the Grateful Goddesses podcast, you'll hear about women who are trying out new things that they've never done before, exploring things maybe that they've taste-tested but haven't really dove in. Women who are reaching beyond their box and experimenting with new things, supporting and empowering each other through these experiences! Join the conversation about gratitude, self-care, meditation, self-defense, nutrition, fitness, health, dreams, and bevy of soulful, compelling topics.

Every woman has an inner goddess that needs to be unleashed – an inner self that wants to try things and get past the fear and the roadblocks. The Grateful Goddesses Podcast is your opportunity for you to gain knowledge about yourself from what other women are doing to expand themselves. Be a part of this gathering of women for spiritual enrichment and friendship around various interesting topics and activities. Join Grateful Goddesses with Karen Pulver today!

It’s scary to own your power. When there is pressure or trauma, the squeaky voice can come on. Owning the core power that we all have and perhaps had to hide while growing up, will empower us. We are socialized to be pleasing and nice and this can cause us to not get the things we want. Listen to comedian, speaker, and vocal coach Elaine Williams as she teaches us how to tap into that lower register and take command of our why. We will also dive into Elaine’s struggles with addiction and her mission to change the conversation around this. There is something about our culture that leads to addictive personalities and we need to be taught emotional intelligence and understand how to detach and unplug in a healthy way. Elaine’s ultimate mission is to help people through the difficult times in their lives, whether it be an addiction, navigating college, or traumas, to speak and own their lives on their terms.

We all know the phrase "we make plans and God laughs." How many times in our lives have we had a plan or a path that got blocked, changed, or had to be shifted? When this happens, we have a choice to make. We can continue struggling and trying to fix the problem endlessly, or surrender, give love and light to the situation, and create a new normal. Heidi Rome has experienced this in her life first hand. When her autistic son was eleven, he participated in guided communication therapy in which he described via typing his own experience of autism as a spiritual journey. "God is in my heart and will always protect me." This encounter soothed Heidi's oil and transformed her attitude out of a suffering state and a more peaceful purpose. The book's title is from the last line of that conversation and conveys a simple and not always easy golden rule for all parents who struggle in the face of their children's challenges, special needs or not. In this episode, along with Heidi, we meet Debby, the mom of a child with Angelman’s syndrome. Also nonverbal, we will hear about Debby's experience communicating with her son and his profound positive effect on others.
