Owning my own personal power can feel really comfortable at times and other times quite the opposite!  I gently remind myself I owe it to myself and those around me to allow the beauty of loving, compassionate power to be exhibited in my daily life.

Here are some affirmations that assist me in claiming my power in a lovingly assertive manner:

God, I close my eyes and ask that you allow the light of your divine grace to fill me up with courage and strength to stand in my power lovingly.
I can be assertive and still be compassionate and loving to all concerned.
By owning and expressing myself from a place of love sets the example for others around me to do the same.
