Affirmation for Strength: I Lead With Compassion and Confidence

True strength requires one thing - that you believe in yourself.

True strength is not bold, and it doesn’t boast. True strength doesn’t need to be displayed or validated by others. But true strength does require one thing: that you believe in yourself. So, embody this affirmation for strength as you lead with compassion and confidence.

Remember this as you meditate on this positive affirmation for empowerment. That is the way of The Emperor of the Major Arcana.

Breathe into that fire in your solar plexus chakra and be the fire. Allow it to shine. Allow it to grow. And in your kindness and in your compassion, you can show true leadership.

This is the energy that The Emperor of the tarot brings when he is in his benevolent manifestation. And this is what we should focus on when we strive to embody the positive traits of this amazing archetype. Much like the woman and the lion on the Strength tarot card, true power is not brute force.

We follow those who make us feel safe, not because we know they are tough, but because we feel seen and heard by them. Someone else’s power is only inspirational if it is generous.

That is the gift you can give to others, but first you must give it to yourself. Because true strength requires one thing – that you believe in yourself.

Have compassion for yourself in everything you do. Have confidence in the words your soul speaks to you. And then, extend it to those around you.

Visualize yourself doing this as you meditate on this positive affirmation for empowerment and shine like The Emperor! It’s time for you to lead with compassion and confidence.
