DEDICATION

I dedicate this book to my father, Jacques Stevenson, my Mother, Rosie Thompson who encouraged me to live my dreams and never give up, and to my son, Taharka El Henson, may you achieve all your desires and goals in life.

I would like to give thanks to the Benevolent Most High God for allowing me to share this gift with you.

FOREWORD

Peace and Evolution,

This book represents a special part of me that I have kept tucked away for ten years and now, I’m sharing it with the world. The chosen pieces are expressions after meditation, dreams or experiences.

The title, Let the Power Surge was given birth after a meditation of my father’s, Jacques passed soul. I pressed the record key and the words just came out while in a trance, later to be transcribed to the poem,Let the Power Surge. The title means to extend your inner self to outside reality, in order to perpetuate illumination and divine self love and expression.

I believe we all have chosen paths and unique gifts to fulfill our life’s purpose. The journey is being open and receptive to understand yourself and your talents, so that you can ignite and shine your internal flame to warm the hearts and minds of others.

Since a child,
