I declare my spiritual dominion.
How do I gain dominion over myself and my life? Does my self-control feel weak or my habits limiting? Dominion, or self-mastery, begins in the way I think and feel. I may believe I cannot change my reactions or that I am at the mercy of some habit that does not contribute to my well-being. But in truth, I can take dominion over my behavior. I can assert my freedom. I can—step by step, thought by thought—change my way of thinking, feeling and responding. I am a spiritual being, unfettered and free. Unlimited by former thoughts and feelings, I take a new look at myself, a new look at my life, and declare my spiritual dominion.
Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion.—Genesis 1:26
