I open my eyes and glance at my watch sitting on an old stool by my bed: 5:45 AM
A ray of light begins to open the sky. The darkness of the night wanes. Spiritually, at this hour bright energies from many different realms are descending upon Earth. Some may call them “angels” others refer to them as “deities”. It is the job of these energies to be among us as the day breaks, and so it is crucial for every human being to understand that this -this very moment- is a special time for us.
The vibration and frequency of sound and telepathy are at it’s highest range just before the sun lights the day.
Many people do not know how to begin their day spiritually, and if it is even possible at all. How we begin our day is often a rare thought. Most of us simply wake up and get to work! Or awaken to daily unfulfilling routines, almost always forgetting the spirituality of the day ahead.
The time between getting out of bed and beginning your day is crucial and sets the tone not only for the day but for the week or more. What I will teach you was taught to me many years ago by nonphysical beings who would wake me at 5:30 in the morning to pray. Some of what I will share was also taught to me by my mother, and at the time, I had taken this information for granted. But as I grew to become who I am, I now realize that what she handed over to me was priceless and so I will hand it over to you all.
How to Start Your Day Spiritual
1. Get Naked
Yes, naked. As the sun rises, face the stream of its light while bare and pray! But not just any prayer, an affirmation. Avoid “pleading” prayers such as “Lord please,” or “I beg…” Pleading is a prayer without belief or intention and only implies that you believe there is a possibility that you will not receive what you desire. Replace “pleading” prayers with affirmative prayers, such as “I will,” or “I am“. Affirm not only for yourself but for your loved ones and the world at large.
See this post on how to affirm your prayers!
Before your affirmations, pay your salutations. For example, “I salute the sun which rises to meet me this morning, alive and well. I salute my mother, I salute my father, I salute my ancestors, I salute my head (your inner consciousness or higher self).” Then follow these salutations with your own affirmations.
2. Let Something Physical Represent Something Spiritual
If you are the kind of person that awakes expecting a bad day because of something or someone (boss? co-worker? long drive?), or if you are the kind of person that has trouble remembering your spiritual commitments, choose something you see every day and redefine it by giving it a spiritual meaning.
Your window plant: Reminder to pray
A stop light: Reminder to be grateful
The neighbor you hate: Reminder to help someone today
For instance, use the sun as a reminder to practice gratitude. Every morning as the sun shines, you will remember to be grateful for at least 1 thing in your life. Or if there is a job that makes you unhappy, use that job to represent a spiritual commitment. Before you enter the job in the morning, use that moment to envision yourself in a “perfect world”. In that world, where do you feel you belong? Maybe you’re married with children, or maybe you’re traveling the world, whatever it is – use that “terrible job” to become your reminder to begin creating the reality you deserve.
When we stretch in the morning, it allows the spirit which traveled during the night, to fuse once again with the physical body, creating a union once again: mind, body, and soul. Now, according to science, we stretch because
“…Aside from feeling good, it actually does help to wake you up. Stretching works to increase flexibility and range of motion in the muscles and joints. It also improves circulation and relieves tension.” – livestrong.com
But as science gives us the “physical” answer, it is unaware of the spiritual answer. When we look at yoga, it is defined as “…that which brings you to reality,” as the word literally means “union”. So stretching in the morning does “wake you up” but not only because of your muscles and joints but because it fuses your spirit with your physical. Every time we sleep, we astral project. Our spirit travels out of the body and into the realms. Here, we experience things and places, receive messages, attend meetings, and even battle. So when the spirit returns to the physical body, you may wake to feel very tired.
So stretch as much as you can! You will realize that by the end of the day, that sluggish feeling you return home with after a long day, will never return again.
Spiritual Fun Fact! We experience jet lag for the same reason we stretch. Whenever we travel from one place to another, regardless of transportation (drive, flights, or even sleeping and traveling out of the physical body), the spirit returns back to the body days after the physical has arrived. The spirit is multidimensional and can be in more than one place at once. This is what we refer to as “jet lag” or “sluggishness”, a lack of complete spiritual fusion.
4. Your Meeting with Water
This meeting is more important than meeting the President. “Meeting with water” simply means clean, clear, water meeting the physical body in any way. You’re not only cleansing your physical body, you are also refreshing your spirit. When you meet with water, reaffirm your affirmations! You have already affirmed to the sun, now have your meeting with water. These are two powerful elements that meet every single human being on Earth. Do you wish someone would call you? Do you desire a good day with someone in particular? Whatever it is that you need, whatever it is that you desire to make your day a good one, use water as your “postal service.” Deliver your message to this element and you’ll be very surprised.
5. And finally, Don’t Forget the World
Humans can be selfish, but we are not alone in this world. Use the powerful hours of the morning to create a better Earth. Giving and being of service is an essential source of happiness and can start your day with this comforting feeling. You may think that as an individual, you lack the power to change the world, but in actuality, 1 prayer can save 100 lives. An utterance is powerful, especially in this morning hour. The Universe longs for humans to understand that we have the power to help each other and help ourselves. Never forget the world, it is our home. We are all apart of each other, not apart from each other. We are here to serve each other.

Tips for You
- Before leaving your house, just before you shut the door, utter these words: “Let me come back and see everything as it is supposed to be. Keep disasters away.” Tell your spirit guides to protect your home while you are away.
- Practice your morning rituals before speaking to anyone as you wake! Let your first words be of spiritual use. This first utterance gives immense power to the spirituality of what you intend to use it for.

- Stay positive! Always know that there is absolutely nothing without solution and nothing that happens without reason. If you embrace your spirituality, know that there is nothing beyond your reach. A positive mind projects a positive reality. There really isn’t a “worse that can happen” unless you believe there is. It all starts with you.
Practicing the above gives you the power to control your day. You can decide how you will feel and what you will receive. Try practicing the above rituals and come up with some of your own. Control your life by starting your days with spirituality and never have a “bad day” again.
P.S. Learn to hug. Try to practice it. It may be uncomfortable for some of you, but touching creates bonding and warmth. Your enemy will be put to shame and confusion when you hug them. Hug the hate right out of them and radiate warmth and light to all you come in contact with.
