Your day is pretty much formed by how you spend your first hour. Check your thoughts, attitude, and heart.
Make your morning routine a space to fill your spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical energy bodies with love.
First things first, start your day off with a morning meditation. Grab a few crystals, light some sage, or even light an incense. You can sit in meditation a space with nice blanket and pillow for comfort if you wish. Or, use this space to stretch, do some yoga poses, and breathing techniques as well! f the sun shining position yourself to receive its beautiful rays and sun gaze. Morning meditations are life changing when we make them a priority before the day starts. Here, you express can gratitude for the unique and beautiful day ahead, set intentions for the things you want to complete, and find clarity in the stillness before all the noise. You can say, “today I make it my intention to be in a state of peace amongst chaos around me”. It all depends on your daily schedule and what your heart is telling you.
Here, you can also do some praying; ask for clarity, guidance, and assistance from Spirit. Then, close your eyes (keep them open if you wish) and meditate. Meditations can look different daily; sometimes you may want to listen to a guided morning meditation, a frequency, play a singing bowl, or I’ll opt for complete silence. There’s no time limit for meditations (unless you have a tight schedule to keep); this is where you just let your own spirit guide you to whatever emotion, inspiration, clarity, or creation is for you to see and to feel. Let your thoughts flow if they want to, create certain thoughts, or find stillness. No matter what, here is where you can always leave with inspiration, guidance, ideas, and or gratitude for the day ahead.
This is where you find your center, your peace, your sacred space, and fill your spiritual energy with love. Be patient with yourself, meditation is a practice. With time, you grow.
Release whats on your mind! Journaling is a major self-love practice. It gives you a clean and safe space to truly release!! In your journal you can write whatever is on your heart; lessons you learned, clarity you gained in meditation, questions you desire answers to, feelings you feel, and whatever thoughts you want to capture! Your journal is your own personal venting space where great healing can be found. It can also be a space for more than just writing, but drawing, daily art, whether you consider yourself an artist or not is extremely healing. Art sends a message from our subconscious and allows us to see what our spirit is carrying. Your journal can also be a place to record your dreams. As Dreams are also windows to the subconscious mind and send us very symbolic clues we need on our healing journey!
Take this opportunity to gather your mental energy which includes all that you see and hear. You can sit still or move around while doing this. Tidy up your space, make your bed, while at the same time fill your thoughts with positive affirmations. Our mental energy is connected to our atmosphere; so let your mind hear and see things that take you to the mental space you need to be in. Use affirmations to pour love into your mental before the rest of the world sets the tone for you.
An easy and effective form of affirmations is listening to them. You can listen to morning affirmations pieced together by other creative artist or listen to your own personal affirmations. Making your own can be a lot more personal, familiar, and effective. Do this by create a recording on your phone of you saying your affirmations aloud (in present tense “I am”) with a binaural beat in the background.
Although listening to affirmation is easy and effective there are other ways to incorporate this practice in your morning routine!
Writing is another easy an effective form of affirming. Your pen is your wand! The power of writing is very real! We call it spelling because each time we write we are eating a spell! What you write down is very likely to manifest, especially when we write it down multiple times. Write affirmations! Get in tune with what you want to manifest and/or affirm within yourself and create new affirmations in your Journal.
When you’re done writing, keep these written affirmations in special place! You can even organize them down into specific categories such as hair affirmations, affirmations for the mind, and career affirmations. These are also what you can read from to create voice recordings.
Pick a page of your own or one from our Digital Affirmation & Mantra Booklet ; whatever flows. Begin reading those affirmations saying them aloud or just reading them in your head. Speaking affirmation aloud is a very powerful manifesto tool! Just like your pen is your wand, YOUR WORD IS BOND. What you speak has power over your DNA, your day, your essence, and your whole reality! Either way, say all of your affirmations with power, positive emotion, and faith; like you truly believe them, not like your just saying them for fun. But, attach and feel an emotion you receive from that affirmation and imagine yourself embodying, acting on, or possessing that affirmation.
When your finished pouring love into your spiritual and mental energy body, creating intentions and affirming your own ideas into your well being. Play music! Good, Soulful, and uplifting music sets the vibe for the entire day and has the ability to just put anyone in a good mood. Music has a strong connection with our emotions, it can make us feel deeply, and also allows us to flow within those feelings. Music with a empowering message fills our emotional body with love because it allows us to find comfort and joy in FLOWING. Giving our bodies rhythm to dance (which activates love in the physical energy) and also, activating our throat chakra to be free and open with high vibrations at the start of the day. This is also another way to fill your mental energy with love by what you’re hearing. Have a morning music playlist which consist of upbeat, positive, and grateful energy.

SELF-CARE IS NOT SELFISH!!! This is YOUR time to show self love and care to your physical energy. Take your sweet time with this. Your morning self-care all depends on your own personal hygiene and beauty routine. This should consist of cleansing, teeth brushing, skin care, and hair care. During this time show yourself mad love in whatever practices you incorporate! Speak love, admiration, gratitude, and beauty into your cells while rubbing those butters and oils into your skin and running that brush through your hair.
5. Drink Water/Tea
The first thing you should put in your body is water; a cleansing of physical and emotional energy. Water is life, it conforms to the vibrations around it; so, speak words of love into your water and ask it to cleanse and purify your physical and emotional energy.
After you’ve rehydrated your vessel from fasting all night, have some tea! Whether it’s just warm lemon water, ginger tea, turmeric tea, or a special herbal blend, tea is an absolute must in the morning before the adventure of the day awaits! Morning Tea is your hot cup of magic! Speak life into the herbs and water used to create this nourishing gift! Let the warmth cover your aura like a hug from the universe. Flowing through your body and cleansing your organs. Leaving you feeling refilled and refreshed by mother nature. Warm nourishing liquid in the morning helps reset your body, raise your metabolism, and increase your energy for the day!
Along with your morning water and tea, this is a great time to fill your body with your own personal vitamins and minerals before any foods. Try Black Seed Oil, Chlorella, Spirulina, a Turmeric and Ginger shot, Vitamin B-Complex, bladderwrack, or Irish Sea Moss.
6. Eat Fresh Fruit
Breakfast looks different for everyone, some choose intermitted fasting, and some choose to EAT. Regardless of when you choose to fill you body, the first solid food that should hit your stomach is FRUIT!! RAW Fresh fruit carries life force energy, it is the highest energy available as it has not been tampered with or heated, causing it to lose key vitamins and minerals. Fruit is also the most DETOXING food! Our bodies do the most detoxing over night and in the morning so its important to aid that process by filling our bodies with alkaline, detoxifying, and life force fruit. You can choose a fresh bowl of fruit, a smoothie and/or a fresh pressed juice to truly fill your body with a high vibration.
7. Go Outside
Now that you’ve filled your spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical energy body with love in many forms, GO OUTSIDE!!! Nature is a sanctuary for healing. With the earth, water, fire, and air elements outside, you can absorb energy and give thanks to all these elements at the same time! Even if you step outside for a quick second, allow yourself to feel the sun on your skin, charging your whole essence. Allow yourself to feel the ground beneath your feet, charging you with electrical energy.
This is YOUR morning routine!! So be honest with yourself! Choose what habits resonate with you! Choose what practices are beneficial to your well being! And REMEMBER sometimes none of this happens, you’ll skip some steps, or do everything out of order. Every morning does not go perfectly planned; sometimes you oversleep, wake up in a bad mood, or simply don’t feel like partaking in such a long routine. However, that’s the beauty of life, embrace it!
Try some of these steps in your morning routine and see what what they do for you!
PEACE AND LOVE.
