How do you start your day? Do you start your day with coffee or crystals? Come see how I start my day, and why.
Since I work from home, I’m lucky enough to have my office just 20 feet away from my bedroom. Even though I work for myself, I get up very early, everyday around 6-6:30. It’s the time of day where my thoughts are clear and I have the quietness of the house to get all my work load for the day in order.
As I wander out of my bedroom, I turn left and walk right into my office. The first thing I do is light my Himalayan Salt lamp – you can see it in the upper left hand corner of the picture. Not only does the salt lamp look pretty as it casts a salmon hue in my pink office but it releases negative ions into the air to neutralize Electromagnetic radiation. What? It’s just good for you. You can Google more about it when you get a chance.
Then I light my essential oil lamp using the HOPE blend from Eden’s Garden. This oil is a blend of Cassia, Lemon Grass (LOVE Lemon Grass), Rosemary, Sweet Orange and Tangerine. Sound yummy? You should smell this! The best ever. I put a drop on my hands, rub them together and the scent is just better than the smell of coffee in the house … well almost 🙂
Now that my office has a pretty glow (and the sun is usually not up yet) and smells great, I look at my crystals and see which one calls to me. Yes, some of them are chatty!
Now it’s time to pull a card from my Angel Chatter Oracle cards. LOVE THEM!!!!! Today, I pulled this one:
This card is from Archangel Chamuel and it’s ALL about the Heart Chakra. This card is nice to get once in a while and it reminds us that we are loved. Sometimes life gets so busy and we go and go and go and go and all of a sudden we feel that we are taken for granted – as least I do once in a while. Chamuel tells us that we are loved and what we do, is appreciated although at times, we feel like we go unnoticed.
So today, since I pulled this card for myself and it is Saturday, I’m going to do something just for me … paint Angels.
The final step to my morning rituals is a nice hot shower. Sometimes it’s a hot bath at night but for the most part, a nice hot shower to start the day.
I also have shower rituals. When the shower glass gets all steamy I draw the Archangel Michael symbol (see the card in the center of the photograph) and that is my daily reminder to Michael that he is to guard me 24/7 until I release him. Sound strange? No, that is his job. He is the Protector and is one of the reasons he carries his big sword.
Next, I take yet another essential oil, Peppermint, that I have on the shower shelf and put just one drop on my hands and rub together. The steam of the shower infuses with the peppermint and clears my head and just brings all my senses alive.
I do a quick grounding and protecting and of course check my chakras while I’m there and all is good. This is all done by setting intentions in my mind with great visuals. It sounds like a lot but my showers don’t last more than 10 minutes. Trust me when I tell you that this is a very important ritual to do when you walk the path I do.
So there you have it! Welcome to my day.
