Morning
 

Each day is a new beginning. Your task today is to learn the practice of consciously entering your body and your day. Begin by focusing attention on your entire day from morning to evening.

Review your plans for today:

  • Think about where you need to be and with whom you need to be.
  • Do you feel stressful about this day or do you feel comfortable?
  • Do you feel prepared for today's events?
  • Are you projecting fears and expectations into this day?

Your First Chakra

  • Allow the truth 'All is One' to penetrate your body
  • Drop your attention to the root of your spine.
  • Feel yourself magnetically connected to every part of life:
    • the fragrance of the earth
    • the oceans and rivers
    • the air
    • your family and friends
    • the planet
  • Identify your fears for today and pull them into your consciousness.
  • Acknowledge the strength of the energetic circuitry connecting you to all life.
  • Visualize that strength replacing your fears for today.
  • Standing tall.

Your Second Chakra

  • Allow the truth 'Honor One Another' to penetrate your body.
  • Move your attention gradually up your spine to your lower back, hips and genital area.
  • Feel the fire and vibrant energy of this area.
  • Focus that energy toward the key areas of this chakra:
    • Relationships: Who am I going to be with today?
    • Work: What am I going to do today?
    • Money: How do I feel about it today?
    • Creativity: What am I going to create today?


Your Third Chakra

  • Allow the truth 'Honor Yourself' to penetrate your body.
  • Breathe deeply as you shift your attention to your solar plexus and abdominal area.
  • Focus on your self-esteem and how you feel about yourself today:
    • Am I feeling strong? Frightened?
    • Do I need someone's approval today?
    • Will I need to be courageous?
  • Remind yourself of your boundaries, dignity, inherent honor, and integrity
  • Make a spiritual promise in terms of how you want to live your life today

Your Fourth Chakra

  • Allow the truth 'Love is Divine Power' to penetrate your body.
  • Raise your attention up to your heart, the center of love.
  • Welcome the people you're scheduled to meet today into your meditation:
    • Where you feel love for them, send more, boundless love.
    • For those you feel challenged to love, say the prayer , "Let me learn more about how to love them today."
  • Think about who you need to forgive today; release the rage, bitterness or hurt feelings from your heart.
  • Tell yourself "Forgiveness is not easy, but today I ask for one more step toward that goal."
  • Release the prayer that you want to look at today through your heart and not through your fears; that you want to feel gratitude for events that do or don't happen as they should.
  • Keep your attention on the right way to walk into this day, with a heart full of love.

Your Fifth Chakra

  • Allow the truth 'Surrender Personal Will to Divine Will' to penetrate your body.
  • Move your attention to your throat area.
  • Define your needs and desires for today and let go of doing the same for others.
  • Make the choice to love this day instead of fearing it.
  • Envision choices that result in positive attitudes, memories, and feelings about yourself.
  • Vow to express yourself honestly.

Your Sixth Chakra

  • Allow 'Seek Only Truth' to penetrate your body
  • Focus your attention upwards to your mind - the world behind your eyes.
  • Go beyond the limits of the rational mind and accept the Divine's Plan for you.
  • Prepare your mind to enter the day feeling good and not generating illusions, false truths or fears.
  • For today, release old grudges, beliefs, attitudes and patterns that no longer serve you.
  • Remember that everything in your life is there for a reason and to teach you truth.

Your Seventh Chakra

  • Allow the truth 'Live in the Present Moment' to penetrate your body.
  • Pull your attention up and out, and hold the idea 'live in present time.'
  • Let go of the past and do not anticipate the future.
  • During the day, practice the discipline of telling yourself, "This is all I have. This is all there is to my life right now."

Invoke this prayer:

I am committed to feeling a bond with each person I meet, to respecting my own integrity and honor, to living within the energy of love and compassion and returning to that energy when I don't feel it, to making wise and blessed choices with my will, to maintaining perceptions of wisdom and non-judgment, to release the need to know why things happen as they do, and not to project expectations over how I want this day to be and how I want others to be. And finally, my last prayer, 'to trust the Divine'. And with that I bless my day with gratitude and love.
