Hi Rachael and team,

This has been quite a ride, I enjoyed every assignment, this has brought so much awareness of what I forgot I had within me, so far my writing has improved and i have totally been insipired listening to voices rising across the globe celebrating womanhood.

Thank you very much.

I am because we are :-)

THANK YOU FOR YOUR "HERE I AM."

Dear Rachael,

I have done many things in my life, but few have brought the spirit of 'awakenness' like this process of sharing my thoughts and work with Voices of Our Future. Thinking through and putting into words why I do what I do has been a wonderful experience of awakening and inner knowing. Reading what others have written has been deeply enlightening. The Listeners have been so caringly attentive and nurturing in their gentle and affirmative voices. This has just been such an awesome spiritual and empowering experience.

This is to thank all of you at WorldPulse for the Spirit of love, openness, support, and freedom of expression you uphold that enables all of us to feel 'freed' to dare share. The courage to share is built on the platform of and nurtured by knowing one shall be 'listened to' and 'heard'. Can you imagine how many women out there would never have written/shared their story if this platform was not available? I shudder to think what we would have lost (and have lost over the years) because there was no space for women to speak for themselves. For all the women who shared, THANK you for your 'BEING,' the force and voices of our future!!

I honor you all for your 'here I am' for women around the world. My heart bursts and overflows with love and appreciation for all the women, for each one of you at WorldPulse and for Jensine, for daring to dream large!!! She lights the path for us all to dare dream big, and trust and KNOW, IT IS!!!

Blessings, Peace, Love and Light, always!!!

Dear Karambu, Your letter

Dear Karambu,

Your letter moves me to smiles this morning! This platform wouldn't be the way it was without voices like yours--you make us stronger, more enlighten and give us hope. I am so glad to hear that this process has been so successful for you. I wish you the best of luck in your work at home--and I look forward to continuing to read your stories!

Kind regards,

Rachael

Word Count

On the Week 4 assignment, it says the word count is 700 words - is this correct? I have read some posts from women who have already submitted stating the difficulty of writing everything in only 500 words. Mine is 700, and I want to make sure I post the right word amount! 500 or 700?

"...our compassion is the practice of unconditioning." Jakusho Kwong Roshi

Yes, 700 words is correct for this last assignment!

Kind regards,

Rachael
