Claim Your Power in 2020

by Rev. Barbara Goodman Siegel, Ordained Ministerial Counselor

My New Year’s resolution is to own my power. I am talking about the power that A Course in Miracles so clearly tells me is literally my God-given right. As one of my dear teachers said to me: “Barbara, it is just as arrogant not to acknowledge your power as it is to boast about it.” In other words, not claiming our power keeps us, in a rather weird way, special and certainly separate.

There are times when I accept my God-given power. But I also have old, worn out beliefs that I am powerless, unworthy and, despite great evidence to the contrary, inadequate. Too often, I allow these beliefs get the better of me.

I hereby proclaim that I am done with those old beliefs! To that end, I wrote a list of affirmations that state what my God-given power consists of. I want to share the list with you for you to use to reclaim your God-given power as well. It is through each of us claiming and owning our power that we and all our brothers are saved.

I intend to read this list of affirmations every day for at least 30 days. I encourage you to do the same. Here we go and with enthusiasm:

I am the power of Love

I am the power of kindness

I am the power of prayer

I am the power of compassion

I am the power of Truth

I am the power of the Divine Mind

I am the power of forgiveness

I am the power of Creation

I am the power that dissolves all fear

I am the power of innocence

I am the power of joy

I am the power of understanding

I am the power of hope

I am the power of right thinking

I am the power to choose again

I am the power of Divine communication

I am the power of Divine seeing

I am the power of Divine expansion

I am the power of what is changeless

I am the power of what is eternal

I am the power of salvation

I am the power of freedom

I am the power of abundance

I am the power of healing

I am the power of teaching

I am the power of learning

I am the power of remembering

I am the power of the one Self

I am the power of peace

I am the power of gratitude

I am the power of Source energy

I am the power of infinite Intelligence

I am the power of blessings

I am the power of faith

I am the power of trust

I am the power of holiness

I am the power of miracles

I am the power to save the world

And so it is!    Amen

Dear Ones, please note that beginning Friday, Jan. 3 and every Friday thereafter, I will be on ACIM Gather radio (which you can find via a google search) from noon to 1:00 PM EST.

Each week, I will review the upcoming week’s Course in Miracles lessons using the affirmations from my book: Finding Your Self in the Mirror — Awakening Through Mirror Affirmations for the 365 Lessons of A Course in Miracles. I invite you to join me and let these affirmations take the lessons from your head to your heart so that you may continue to strengthen and empower your true Self.
