I claim my home. I claim my body. I claim my space. I allow myself to exist. I call myself into this moment. This body. This place. Tenderly. Forcefully. Decidedly.

I do not leave myself hanging. Floating. Floundering around.

I build home out of each act of self-love I commit. I build home each time I stick to the boundaries that I have set for myself. I build home each time I address myself with kindness.

I make a practice out of speaking to myself in ways that remind me of the power that I do have. I make a practice out of speaking to myself in ways that remind me that I always find the  solutions that I seek. I make a practice out of speaking to myself in ways that evoke my agency no matter the environment I am in.

I cast spells of self-actualization. So that I am not asleep to my own potential. So that I am not afraid of my own power. So that I am reminded of the promise that is deep within me, the promise to awaken through my efforts, through my work and through the connections that encourage me to heal.
