Greetings and welcome to my Blog. I am Poetess, Cultural Transformation Catalyst, Educator, and Poet. The goal of this Womanist Empowerment Series is to heal the wounds of the emotional body, empower the feminine aspect of life and transcend the sufferings of the human condition. Together you and I will discover a source of Feminine Power and the Essence of what it means to be a Black Woman. Creating this Blog and launching the Womanist Empowerment Series is my most ambitious undertaking thus far and what gives my life meaning and purpose. The Book I am working on; "A Seven Step Inner Transformation, along with my Blog, womanistempowermentseries.com is a series of literature, webinars, and seminars intended to build a culture of Womanist Empowerment through Poetry & Talk. We will get together to get strength because separate power is no power at all. THE PERFECT STORM It was the end of two thousand and one. A time when the country experienced a horrendous tragedy. I too faced personal misfortunes. I walked away from my profession as an educator. I left my marriage that failed to quiet my restless heart and lastly I walked away from my faith organization to which I had dedicated over fifteen years of my life. It was in these three areas of my life I felt most betrayed and devalued as a woman. I was at the height of my career as an educator. The one thing I thought would bring me a sense of purpose and fulfillment, still, happiness and security eluded me. I drove the most expensive car and lived in a condominium. Lastly, I married the man of my dreams. My life resembled the substance of fairy tales. Disenchanted with education caused me to let go of the one recognizable measures of success and begin a journey to discover what would make me truly happy. Unbeknownst to me I had ended the first part of my life and was in the center of a Perfect Storm. The vortex had me spinning out of control. I put on the brakes and it was as if a floodgate burst open. Words flowed and filled the pages of countless notebooks. The words soon began to plug the gaping hole that was in my heart. When the wind blew and the rain pelted, I had no place to hide so I retreated inside myself. It is there I found a safe haven and began to pick up the scattered pieces of my life. As I picked up the pieces, I examined them all and began to rebuild on a more solid foundation. I spent the next fifteen years of my life trying to create value and find a way to express my deepest desire. The search took me to the depths of my despair and pain and the source of suffering. Shame and guilt were the prevailing emotions that lived in the shadows and caused the Perfect Storm. It is Two Thousand Sixteen. My life stands on solid ground, a self-built from the inside out. I replaced anger and fear into faith and joy. I let go of the story I had been telling myself that I was worthless and unlovable and replaced it with another. This new self, a firm like the oak tree rooted in the earth, branches extending in all direction. Faith in the Feminine Aspect of life that has thus sprouted and bloomed and evolved into this greater self wth a mission to empower a generation of young woman. I discovered this source of power hidden in my life under guilt and shame. It is a Powerful Purpose and Self-Realization of the role I will play in transforming society. It is the first key in the Seven Keys that Empower the Black Woman. Put Your Finger on the Pulse and feel the beat. The Rhythm of Life.
