Free yourself and regain your power

I am wondering if it’s possible to translate the sentence, Free yourself and regain your power, into Latin.
It seems to be more complicated than I thought doing this on my own and would appreciate any help as it’s for an artwork I am creating.
Someone gave me the translation, :bullshit:. But not sure if it is correct, I am bit weary of the google translator for Latin.
Thank you in advance!

Free yourself and regain your power. I think repetere could change to the imperative of recipero, regain, recover. And I think power in the way you mean it could be vis or robur. Libera te et vim tuam (or robur tuum) recipera. Or if you wanted to say, Free yourself that you may regain your power, it would be, Libera te ut vim tuam (or robur tuum) reciperes. I'm sure others will know more than I.

Thank you. You definitely know more than I do. I may just put it in English, I’m not going to pretend to understand Latin the slightest and I’m quickly learning it’s a hard language to translate.

For the first part, why not use Seneca's Letter 1.1: vindica te tibi (declare your own freedom / set yourself free / take full possession of yourself)?

For the whole thing:

vindica te tibi reciperans potentiam tuam.

= Claim your freedom, getting your power back.

Thank you, may I ask what Seneca’s letter is? I am unfamiliar with this.

A letter to his friend Lucilius. Seneca was a famous proponent of Stoicism.
