A Daily Routine

 

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.

The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.

As well as your physical and social health, it’s important to pay attention to your spiritual and emotional health.

 

In all the great spiritual traditions, emphasis is made on the importance of discipline, of ritual, essentially of a daily practice or menu of ways that aid your health and well-being.

 

The following 14 suggestions work well in combination. Some days you may have to miss a few; don’t beat yourself up. Just pick up where you left off – get back on track.

 

 

  1. Awaken and make your first thoughts be ones of gratitude to the Divine, and to everyone and everything that makes life beautiful. Set a positive vibration for your day.

  2. Stand up - be open and receptive to all good; throw your arms out and upwards whilst saying,” I am open and receptive to all good.” …a Louise Hay technique. Do this six times. And any time of the day you feel like.

  3. Mirror work – also a Louise Hay technique; most of us look in a mirror first thing in the morning, an ideal time to tell yourself, “I love you, I really love you.” Again, this can be done any time you look in a mirror.

  4. Meditation is part of the “start-the-day” ritual – and early evening. I sometimes fit it in if I simply feel called to do so during the day. I just get a feeling, “I want to meditate.” And have the luxury that mostly I can.

  5. Practise breathing - imagine you are exhaling all toxic energy out and drawing in life energy – do this for three routines of inhaling longer than you exhale. Physiologically this helps the brain to calm down.

  6. Include some moving or exercise. Some will have an early morning jog or go to the gym. Do what you can, regularly.

  7. Read or listen to positive information, inspiring knowledge, prayers, affirmations; do this at home or in the car or whilst jogging or riding on the bus.

  8. Create a positive affirmation for the day – make it Personal, Present Tense, and in Positive Language eg there is the well-known affirmation, “Every day, in every way, my life gets better and better.”

  9. During the day ensure that every thought, word and action is in alignment with your Higher Mind, your every earthly intention – aim to be loving and compassionate.

  10. Eat wisely, choosing food that cleanses, nourishes, and is of pure vibration. Avoid sugars and processed foods – go for fresh, raw ingredients.

  11. At the end of the day, make notes in your gratitude diary – record what or whom you have been grateful for during the day, and what you did that you are grateful for doing.

  12. Before going to sleep remembers that any issues playing on your mind need to be resolved so make a list for tomorrow (then you can relax and let go) then spend 10 minutes reading a positive soothing message.

  13. If you have been hurt by someone or you have hurt someone during the day, practise forgiveness – research the Ho’oponopono routine. Simply focus on the person or event and keep repeating – I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you and I thank you.

  14. Close your day with a heartfelt prayer and remember – prayers are not always religious.

Every day

The routine

gets it all together
