How To...Spiritual Work

HOW TO START YOUR DAY WITH SPIRITUALITY

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.

Seeing:

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.

3. Stretch!

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.

Obara Meji

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.

I read this post and started applying this practices some days have been good but it’s hard to break out of old habits I tend to greet my husbands once I’m awake. I am learning to wake up quietly and apply these rituals.

During one of my readings, you told me that I am linked to the water realm so I give special respect to the water. I have included in my morning ritual feeling a bowl with water and doing my affirmations over it then leaving it in my bedroom.

On days that I follow a morning ritual my days feel more fulfilled,

Remain bless Obara 🙂

I have morning rituals that I’m so not consistent with but after reading this post I will try to get my life back on track. Everything just seems so chaotic right now but “Thank You God” has been my waking up routine. I really need to dedicate the time time to fix myself. Oldayo once told me that I can achieve anything I set my mind to I don’t know what he sounds like but I can hear him saying it to me especially in times like these when I don’t feel good enough. Thank you for this blog Obara, You’re like a mother to me. I’m grateful to have been led here. Thank you for this forum.

Big hugs to my spiritual teachers and my ES family. Ma- I have learnt something significant today “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.” The post has encouraged me to make more of an effort to start my day in a spiritual way.
You’re awesome Ma- thank you. Stay blessed.

Good morning mums and ES family! First let me say, I love the new site interactivity with the tweeting and the polling and bare tings! I love to see when things grow and bloom and my dear O this site has done just that and helped all of us bloom as well. I can’t say thank you enough.

Now to the post. I have noticed the effect water has on my life since joining the blog. Every time I shower I fall on my knees and just pray for everyone and what I see (in the spiritual sense) as their ailments. I notice a barrage of names just come to me and I just start praying uncontrollably for each as they come. In addition to waters impact on my prayers I also notice how sluggish my day’s and nights are without the element. I’ve notice myself showering and bathing more often (sometimes all 3 and 4 times a day…when I’m off lol) just at the feeling of a negative energy. Water to me is like the tiny red reset button often ignored by most, it puts things back in order. We grow up being taught the physical aspect of water, which is cleansing the body, but blessed is the day Obara taught me about the spiritual.

Questions:

1.Does an obsession with a certain element signify which realm people are originally from? Example…water, fire, earth.
2. How do you suggest we adjust our affirmations during times when the sun rises later in the morning (when saying our naked affirmations)? Reason being my day starts before the sun starts to shine.

MI gone fass inna ppl comment now, I might have more questions in a few after mi reread. Lol.

Dear Obara, you are priceless. Thanks for this one again. You always seem to write on matters that are present in my subconscious mind. You are just awesome. you embody a mother figure to someone like me who has lost mine. I also believe that my late mother’s eleda was part of the guide that led me to find you. She had answers to many of these questions when she was alive and almost everyday I miss her so much but your blog is a motherly guide to me just as my mom would have given. Thank you so much! I desire to have deeper knowledge on how to get the help of water to help avenge me of deep hurt I’m feeling.

Hello Obara. These simple, practical routines that you give us are some of my favorites because it’s easier to stay consistent. I remember you teaching us this in one of the earlier classes and I have mostly stuck with it a lot but not everyday. Thank you.

Woi Obara!!! Before I say anything let me just say that when I voted in the poll the option I chose said 11.11% and the time on my phone’s clock read 1:11pm 😐

The thing with me is that I do not have a regular sleep pattern and it tends to change if I am awaken before my time to wake up. Is there any chance that should I tend to go bed in the 5 – 6 am range that I can do my affirmations before I go to sleep?

Thank you very much for tip no. 2 as for someone like me it will prove to be very beneficial.

Again you have revealed something profound to me re: stretching. When I do stretch I do tend to feel energized. Sometimes when I am lazy in the bed I tend to instinctively stretch and suddenly I feel a surge of energy.

I will have to work on my daily affirmations though as at times I can be really lazy.

Thanks very much for this very insightful post Obara.

Thank you Obara I will incorporate your advice. Some of these things I already do… I love getting up early… to pray, meditate, do things in silence. How I start my morning sets the tone for the rest of my day. I feel empowered and more mental clarity. I love the sound of the water running… I know it wasteful, but I do it unconsciously… it’s soothing and I daydream. I guess this well help me to manifest my hearts desires.

I feel so bad…is wah kind a waking up mi going on wid? Bere Whatsapp and Instagram

Mi nah lie, I was a bit hesitant to read the post as I thought the lesson/steps would be complex an have mi a gwan wid a bag a tings inna di early mawnin when mi a try avoid traffic.
But mi like dis, I can do this…simple and practical and mi sleep naked suh mi off to a good start 🙂

A competent spiritualist (aka Obara Meji) once gave me a ritual that had me up early (well mi usetuh jump up a bit too early lol)… at that time of the morning, the energy of nature is quite different. During that time, my spiritual development was intense. Mi ago really mek dis part a mi everyday routine.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

Good morning Obara My affirmations are spoken every morning. I just stood and stretched even though I have been awake awhile. It was needed and so it will be added to my morning ritual. Thank you Teacher! You keep on teaching sister and we are here to receive. May you be replenished for all you pour out! ASE ASE ASE!

Good morning Obara,
Happy new year. You captivated me this morning. Thank you for your wonderful words of wisdom. Sometimes we ask for signs and God answers in misterious ways. This was exactly what I needed this morning. I’ve been having a few ruff weeks at my new job and your post just opened my eyes to why certain things happen.
I will be following your advice to a T.
Many thanks for the many life lessons you have taught us all. Keep up the good work and never you dare ever change.
