Do you have a powerful morning practice?

Leadership | 0 comments

One of the questions that I’m frequently asked is what do I do in the morning that makes my days turn out so amazing.

To give you the whole rundown would take a litttttle bit longer than a short blog post can provide… but I wanted to give you a look at what you can do to create your day more powerfully, so that if anything shows up to derail you, you will be able to get right back on track instead of wallowing in the mud and getting stuck in shame, blame, fear or frustration.

POWER TIP #1: Whatever your morning practice might include, DO IT EVERY DAY. Consistency is absolutely key.

POWER TIP #2: Do something you love first thing in the morning as part of your practice. Just even 2 minutes of sacred self-expression, in your own unique way. You do this and I promise you, your life will begin to transform very quickly. For me, that’s singing. And I created a special song just for me to sing every morning. What is it for you?

POWER TIP #3: Put it into your calendar – and when you travel, have your “steps” of your morning practice readily available so you can do it on the plane, train, at the hotel, wherever.

POWER TIP #4: Boldly state your intentions for your day. With feeling, faith and conviction!

POWER TIP #5: Make sure you have sacred space set up for you to do your morning practice in. Find or create a space where you feel comfortable and safe to express yourself, where you won’t be distracted (unless you’re on a plane! Lol Then you improvise!). Put some special/sacred items in your space that make you feel empowered.

POWER TIP #6: You are human. So you’re probably going to have some resistance when you first start doing this. Just recognize that and be gentle on yourself. If you slip up, get right back on track. If you forget to do your practice, do it as soon as you remember.

POWER TIP #7: Don’t overwhelm yourself. That is a habit many of us can get into. We can tend to get super-excited about making change and dive right in – a little too much – and then it ends up being too much to handle and so we slip up, and then beat ourselves up for slipping up, and then quit. You know, like New Year’s resolutions. Don’t do that! (: Start SMALL. And then work your way up to what feels right for you. For me, it used to take me about 10 minutes to do my morning practice. I’ve added a lot more to it in the past year and now it takes me 60-90 minutes.

One thing I know for sure is that if you create and consistently implement a powerful morning practice, you will become more successful, more energized (even on a crappy day!), much more fun to be around, and a lot happier.

Love & Blessings,

Brenda MacIntyre, Medicine Song Woman
