The wee hours of the morning are a critical moment for our mindset creation. When we are first waking, allowing our thoughts to become conscious again and starting ourselves off for a brand new day, new opportunity, we need to set ourselves up for success.
This will look different for each and every one of us, but one thing I’ve learned over the years is that it doesn’t hurt to try out what other people are doing to see if it is a fit for you.
I published an article called Morning Rituals that I would love to offer to you as an opportunity to see into the mornings of others who are successful, powerful and grounded. See how they begin their morning, consider if these actions would feel good to you and if they would fit into your lifestyle, and then give them a go! There is no harm in switching things up and you never know what insight you may gain from testing it out.
If you haven’t downloaded the Morning Rituals pdf (yours to keep for free to access at anytime you’d like) click here to do so. It is a beautiful way to begin exploring what your ideal Morning Ritual looks like. And even if you have had one for years, we change, our bodies and our minds change, so it’s okay to allow our morning rituals to change and grow with us.
In addition to the Morning Rituals pdf, I thought I would share a few new actions I have been enjoying regularly. Allow these descriptions to inspire you to explore your own morning rituals further! Make them intentional. Allow this time to be solely about YOU and all that you want to create in this world.
I am an oil hoarder. I love oils. I love them for their healing properties. I love them for their smell. I love them for their connection to spirituality. I just love them! Each morning I fill my essential oil diffuser with water and browse through my display of oils. I ask myself what I need for the day and chose my oils dependent on my response. Sometimes its one oil, sometimes its three. I allow these oils to bring me strength, grounding and inspiration. I order my oils online at Young Living. You can get them pretty much anywhere, but beware of the price tag. A $6 oil is likely to have a much lower healing property than a $30 oil…consider the source of the oil and how pure they are. If you’re brand new to oils and have a few questions, send me a note & let’s chat.
Yoga isn’t just an act that is done to take beautiful photos and become bendy. It doesn’t have to look the way that it does in a yoga class. It is the act of moving your body to create fluidity, energetic movement and flexibility. If you’re stuck, stagnant or simply have lost your mojo…waking up and moving your body through a yoga sequence is a great way to get that negative energy moving. Not sure where to start? This week I’ve been really enjoying Yoga With Adriene. Check her out. A lot of her videos are only 20-30 minutes long, so they work well with a busy morning!
Taking time in your morning to simply be quiet is an amazing way to allow your brain to bring itself into consciousness without forcing any ideas or concepts on it. Allow your mind to relax, your intuition to come forward and set you up for a day of successful moments. There are SO many resources online to begin your meditation practice. Give this music a try and set 5 minutes on your phone…commit that 5 minutes to being quiet in your body and your mind. Repeat this daily and let me know how it goes for you!
Actively setting intentions about your day, your experience and your expectations allows you to be intentional in your actions. Begin by asking yourself what you are seeking to learn, experience or find today and set an intention around that answer you receive. A few examples are;
I will feel strong, confident and stand in my power.
I will smile at every stranger I pass.
I will notice when I am judging someone and choose to release that judgement.
May you have a beautiful, abundant and powerful morning today, tomorrow and everyday to come!
