It feels like a whisper, compared to the gale-force powers around.
When a whisper is trained, though, it becomes a powerful thing – honed with humility, gratitude, and faithfulness, and tempered by courage, generosity, and wisdom.
‘The greatest art is an intersection of contrasts … pain and healing, despair and hope, darkness and light.’*
One group of whisperers used the training “circuit” of awareness, love, ingenuity, and courage, to develop their whispering into the lives of others.**
Whisperers know this, they know their power comes from within. Facing the reality of who they are and who they can become, they see they can make a difference for others, innovate their particular talents for impact, and step into the vulnerability.
