And so it must follow that we sense the approach of a monumental moment in time.

Becoming A Woman Of Power

~The Adventures of Kalimama~

My prayers and meditations often take the form of a question. Most recently, I have been meditating on the nature of Power. What is it? Where does it come from? What is authentic power and how does one manifest it in ones life?
