This is another one that I am uncertain about. I guess it will depend on which one sounds better. If I could get a translation for each one, that would be most wonderful. Thanks!

The usage of cum is incorrect, and the sentence in any case calls for the ablative (potestate inferiore); leaving out the cum would make it correct. I'm not sure if the post-classical word energia would be understood in the modern scientific sense- I'm more inclined toward interpreting it as "exuberance, vigor". Personally, I'd use the ubiquitous vis (viris) instead.

Please wait for others to comment as well.

Mea potestate interiore, sphaeram viris mysticae creō

I threw in mysticae, since viris alone can be interpreted as "strength" and adding mysticae allows the original context to be preserved, given that the OP is writing a fantasy novel.

viris is the dative/ablative plural of vir, viri m. (man). I don't think this makes sense here

"Potestate interiore usus sphaeram energiae creo"

Using my inner power I create a sphere of energy.
"Mea" is not necessary here.

Actually, for v[i-long:6lgrrzjd][/i-long:6lgrrzjd]s, the genitive is exactly the same.

vis has no singular genetive

I like that, shall I wait for another to confirm before I use, or is it good to go?
