There are many different types of morning routines, from those that help you to be more productive, to ones that focus more on your physical health and wellbeing. A spiritual morning routine is simply one that helps you feel more connected to your soul and spirit. Many of the activities are similar to what you would do during any morning routine, with a few small changes to help you on your spiritual journey.
Keep a Dream Journal
Before you do anything else in the morning, write in your dream journal. This is just a journal you use to record any details you remember about your dreams the night before. Details from your dreams will start fading within a few minutes after waking, so if you can, turn yourlight on and write in it as soon as you get up and out of bed.
If you are someone who tends to wake multiple times a night, with a different dream during each sleeping session, you might want to keep it at your bedside table with a little book light that can b turned on to write in the middle of the night when you wake up.
Start Your Day With Meditation
After you have written in your dream journal, consider doing a short meditation session. At this point, if your mind is still a little anxious from the dreams you had, it might be a good idea to grab another journal to do some brain dumping. This allows you to get all of those thoughts and feelings out so you can clear your mind better during meditation.
Meditation in the morning is ideal as you are in a more relaxed state, with less thoughts about what has gone on during the day. It can be a really illuminating time for you, plus it helps you to set intentions for your spiritual day.
Choose Your Daily Mantras or Affirmations
At this point, you can choose some affirmations or mantras for the day. This is another way to set positive intentions for your day. Think about what is on your mind in the morning, whether you have a big goal you need to complete that day or you are working on manifesting something. Choose some affirmations that align with those intentions and write them down. Keep them in mind and repeat them to yourself throughout the day when you remember.
Gratitude and Morning Pages
Another style of journaling you can add to your spiritual morning routine is with gratitude or morning pages. Gratitude in the morning is often different from the evening. In the morning, it tends to be more about looking inside, being grateful for the start of a new day, for your positive energy, and focusing on your manifestations. Gratitude is also really powerful when it comes to your spiritual growth.
Morning Tarot Spread
If tarot is part of your spiritual journey, this can be a great time for a quick morning tarot reading. Give yourself 10-15 minutes to do a fast 3-card spread in the morning. It can be about setting intentions, getting guidance, or just checking in with your current energies.
The 3-card spread can be about your thoughts, feelings, and outlook in the morning, or do cards for your past, current, and future path.
