Here is an offering for an empowering chant from Mary Ann Martinez that can be used for a personal practice or in a group setting. The purpose of this chant is to embody, empower, invoke, and declare positive statements and affirmations in a creative and intuitive way. This chant can be practiced with or without drums or instruments, but to provide a grounding pulse in 4/4 adds a driving force to the practice.

Here are the words and variations for this chant:

“I am becoming the best I am. I am a ______, yes I am.”

“I am becoming the best I am, no one can stop me, no one can. I am becoming the best I am. I am a ____, yes I am.”

Feel free to alter, and adjust accordingly. Enjoy.
