Iyanla Vanzant is the founder and executive director of Inner Visions International and the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development. She is the author of 13 titles—including five New York Times bestsellers—and the Inner Visions CD Series. Peace from Broken Pieces: How to Get Through What You’re Going Through has been published by SmileyBooks and available here. Iyanla is a Spiritual Technician. She is a Master Teacher. She is a woman of passion, clear vision and purpose, with a wicked sense of humor. Ordinary? Maybe. We think Dr. Maya Angelou's description is much more appropriate. Iyanla is, by many accounts, a Phenomenal Woman!
Let there be everywhere our voices, our eyes, our thoughts, our love, our actions, breathing hope and victory. ~ Sonia Sanchez
In the twenty-first century the power is with the people. The people are the force that will make or break the world as we know it. The people are the only voice that will matter. The people have the power to create the world they want to see. The power is their thoughts, their words, their actions toward one another. Who are the people? Not the priests, the heads of state, the presidents. The people are those who can surrender their ego, embrace themselves as they are and do what they have been sent to do. The people are those who know they are not in charge; rather, they give praise to the Creative Source of life. The people are those who control their breath, know their bodies and use both to teach others how to do it. The people are the children. The people are the women. The people are the elders. The people are the men who love, nurture and protect the children, women and elders. The people are the light.
Today I Am a person of power.
