Every morning, we see renewal and rebirth. This is the perfect time of day to connect and centre yourself, set intentions, express gratitude for all we have and step fully into your feminine divine self.
Each morning what we did or didn’t do and say the day before can all be left behind us. It is a brand new day! A Morning Ritual is a wonderful way to face the new day ahead of us and go forth relaxed and feeling great!
You can build your Morning Ritual with whatever purpose you feel that is most empowering in your life. Here are some exercises and ideas that may assist you to be in charge of your day.
Decide how you want to feel and what you want to accomplish. You can do this with your daily health, your daily work productivity, shopping—practically anything you want to come out as a success. Set your intent to have your day filled with love, joy and happiness. Trust your intuition, find the good in things. Be grateful. What will your intention be today?
I found this definition on setting intentions from About.com: ―A working definition for intention is: “to have in mind a purpose or plan, to direct the mind, to aim.” Lacking intention, we sometimes stray without meaning or direction. But with it, all the forces of the universe can align to make even the most impossible, possible. My intention is to transform the conversation around dreams from fear and doubt, to hope and possibility, followed by action and results.”

As we go about our daily lives, events are created both consciously and subconsciously, the trick here is to create our circumstances consciously.
The way to do this is to consistently Ground yourself.
Start by concentrating on your breath. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth, slowly and deeply three times.
Now, imagine yourself an ancient spreading tree and feel roots emerge from the bottoms of your feet, growing into the ground. The roots move deeper into the Earth until they reach the core of our mother earth, where your roots will wrap around a beautiful earth crystal. Sit with this beautiful earth energy for a few nice deep breaths and thank Mother Earth for all she does for us, from the water we drink to the air we breathe, give thanks. Then draw in this beautiful Earth energy up through your roots like a straw and into your feet, up through your legs, as the trunk of this tall and wise tree, and bring the energy through every part of your body. Continue to draw the beautiful Earth energy ever upward through your neck and head, out your crown, and beyond your physical body.
Then feel branches begin, spreading like arms up and outward from your trunk, dividing into smaller and smaller branches and twigs. The twigs unfurl green leaves and golden, soft petaled flowers. Feel the flowers first as buds, then opening wider and fuller until the over full petals fall from the branches to the ground. Follow the rain of golden petals back to the Earth, where their essence sinks through the surface to the planet’s core. They become one again with the center of our Mother Earth – do this three times.
(Always end the meditation back at the center of the Earth. Return to the present slowly, stretch and move a bit, be fully present before getting up.)
This method is simply the method of shielding that I use in conjunction with centering and grounding. There are, as with everything else, other methods or visualizations that different people use.
Take that energy that is flowing up through your body and out of the top of your head, and feel it coming down around your body surrounding you. Imagine this bubble as an impenetrable shield, which deflects and carries away energies coming from outside it. And remember, that this indestructible, protective energy is also flowing through you and filling you, and carrying away any unwanted influences, while empowering the influence within yourself that you desire.
- Some people prefer to think of the energy as flowing closely around their body like a second skin.
- Others like to visualize it as forming something like a suit of armour, or a symbol that is meaningful to them.
- Some people like to imagine the bubble as having a mirror-like surface that reflects things away. Others might see or feel it as transparent, or hard like steel or stone.
- Others might feel it as being like a raging torrent that washes unwanted incursions away like a waterfall, or burns away what it touches.
The point, again, is not to make what you do match what everyone else does, unless that’s the way that works best for you. The important thing is to become used to calling up and directing the feeling of being shielded and protected. Any of these visualizations are simply your way of symbolizing to yourself the nature of your shield, and the act of forming one, to give yourself the necessary kind of connection to make it real for you.
Once the shield is in place, some people like to imagine the energy that is flowing out the top of their heads returning to flow back up through their feet, and “pinching off” from the earth, so that it is like a closed system.
Again, with all of this, once you have practiced, you are likely to find that you can draw up the feeling of being shielded at will.
Leaving yourself with the idea of a constant energy flow moving through you can set your mind and will to feel like they are being abraded or washed out, or burnt up. Leaving up a shield, constantly, can leave you mentally closed off from the world around you. I don’t believe there’s any major harm in remaining centered, but sometimes it is the things which throw us off balance which propel us forward in life.
