How to Build Your Own Spiritual Morning Routine
The "perfect" morning routine is essentially creating a loving space for yourself. It prepares you to
unlock your own self-support system, step into a self-loving relationship with yourself, and sparks truths that you have forgotten due to the hustle of your daily life.
Before we dive deep into how to build your own spiritual morning routine, here is why this would help you.
When you have a spiritual morning routine you will:
Stop feeling like you are dragging through the day
Feel more inspired, aware and gain more clarity on your path
Get time back and become more organized (Time creates more efficiency)
Have better internal dialogue with yourself
Set your intention for the day and direct your focus
There are many different techniques and advice out there that people give on how to create a solid spiritual morning routine. This can feel daunting when you are building your own signature routine. At this point, many people get stuck and then give up before they even begin.
I want to break this down and help make it as easy as possible for you.
The ingredients to a beautiful morning routine touch each component of you; your body, emotions, mind and spirit. You are a holistic being and each of these parts makes up 25% of you. I call this your BEMS and each one needs a little attention. When you know what to do in each area, you then have a recipe for success.
You do not have to do these in any order. If you just spend just five minutes on each part, you will have a great foundation to a spiritual morning routine.
Here are some examples of things you can do:
Moving your body in some capacity at the beginning of the day will help you release endorphins, known as our natural pain killers, that assist our mind in being more optimistic.
10 minutes of guided yoga in your living room
1 mile run in your neighborhood
Join a local fitness class
This is probably the most overlooked area of health, but it is so important. I describe emotional health as emotional balance. Emotional balance simply means that you know how to experience your emotions, move through them and then self-regulate.
Check in with yourself with 5 minutes of journaling
Ask yourself what your dominant emotion is and where you feel it in your body
Own your emotions as you take an inventory, if they are in you, they are yours
The mind is processing, not for storage. However, many people use this as a place to store everything. All their unwanted thoughts, memories, tasks, ideas, everything. This is the best way to get clogged up and begin to feel overwhelmed.
If you want to break that pattern, you can:
Set a timer for 5 minutes and journal EVERYTHING on your mind
Find a focal point, set a timer for 17 seconds and try to not “think” of anything while focusing on that point
Do a couple breaths to drop out of your head and into your heart
This is the space of connecting to something greater than you. It takes faith to connect to this source. Your Spirit and Soul really hold all the answers you could ever seek but it is the act of turning inward that connects you with this spirituality.
Use a guided meditation that shows you how to connect to Divinity
Take a breath, move your focus behind your brain and down into your heart.
Turn off your head and then ask how you are doing.
Your Spiritual Routine
Creating a cornerstone spiritual routine like this one is a journey. It takes time,
consistency, and implementation to really find your flow. But I encourage you to hang in there. Every step matters.
For example, here’s a quick breakdown of my morning routine:
I wake up and go into my special space. There I have my box of essential oils and intuitively pick an oil to use for that day and read about the oil.
Next, I tune inward and ask myself if there is anything I need to know. This is when I would pull out my journal and release thoughts from my mind, or take an inventory of my emotions.
Finally, I pull a card from one of my decks that provides me a message for the day. After that I go into a rather long (up to an hour) healing meditation. Once the inward practice is complete, I move into my body and start with a green smoothie and I am out the door for a run and some weight training.
Every day fluctuates a bit, but I must say, since I have become so determined and consistent with my morning routine, (over 1,000 days straight) I have finally been able to give up coffee! I never imagined this as a goal, but was more of a side effect from getting my energy aligned. Remember, your Sacred Morning does not need to be perfect; you just have to show up and start. Even five minutes of intention is better than nothing. The key ingredients to begin a beautiful day, full of joy and love all start with an intentional spiritual morning routine.
