I Am Powerful Beyond Measure

In Rev. Kristin’s meditation on January 5th, she read us Marianne Williamson’s familiar words, but in the first person, as I AM statements.  Here it is so you can work with it in your own meditations:

My deepest fear is not that I am inadequate.

My deepest fear is that I am powerful beyond measure.

It is my light, not my darkness, that most frightens me.

I ask myself, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?”

Actually, who am I not to be?

I am a child of God.

My playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around me.

I am meant to shine, as children do.

I was born to make manifest the glory of God that is within me.

Not just in some of us, in everyone.

As I let my own light shine, I unconsciously give others permission to do the same.

As I am liberated from my own fear, my presence automatically liberates others.

Choose any of these as affirmations as you go into the silence:

  • I am liberated from my own fear.
  • I was born to make manifest the glory of God.
  • I am powerful beyond measure.
  • I let my light shine.
  • I am free and unlimited.
  • I am the light of the world.
