The Whispering Woman At Prayer

Statement: Prayer is a creative tool through which we attain contact with the Enlightened Awareness of the Universe; it is a "birthing" tool, a "teaching" tool, and a "nurturing" tool. What's more, the "prayer-tool" is a primordial one, which is also innate to "Feminine Consciousness." As such, when women (and men with "Feminine Consciousness") pray—when they establish a nexus with the Great Enlightened Awareness of the Universe, some "thing" magical happens in the cosmos.
