We are all seeking some type of enlightenment today. Whether we want to eliminate the stresses of the physical world or live in utter peace, there are many different ways to achieve such things.

There are many ways that a person can change the way their life is going. You can make physical changes such as moving, meeting new people, and working out. You can also change the direction your life is headed spiritually. Of course, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and our perception is our reality. So if we are able to master our own perception, we can control our outlook on everything we come into contact with. This is also extremely healthy for a person because it gives them the chance to let go of worldly things!

Many spiritual leaders, advisors, and activists talk about the morning rituals they would perform every morning before starting each day – this is what completely changed their perception on the evils of the world. Once we are able to control our perception, we can control our entire outlook on life! These 7-morning rituals were practiced by spiritual people from thousands of years ago – they worked then, and they work now! Give them a shot!

Meditation

Many people who consider themselves to be spiritually enlightened and higher conscious start their days off by meditating. Meditating is something that has always been associated with the hippies, but it actually has been medicinally practiced as far as history goes back. Many people often believe that you must be some sort of guru to be able to obtain benefits from meditating, but that is just nonsense. Meditating is easy, enjoyable, and anyone can do it. Try meditating for 10 minutes every day before you wake up! This simple morning ritual can change your entire life.

Zazen

Zazen is a fancy way of saying sitting meditation. This is a fantastic way to calm your mind down, and give you a realistic view of the world. Simply sit somewhere you’re relaxed, turn all the sounds off, and listen to yourself.

Write

Writing your dreams down in a dream journal is one of the first things people do when they wake up. It can increase one’s ability to astral project and lucid dreaming, but writing has more effects than that. When you wake up in the morning and purge your thoughts onto paper you will have a clearer mind throughout the day it often works to write down the things that stress you, bother you, or upset you. Since they’re on the paper they are less likely to bother you internally throughout the day. Practicing writing can help one accept the reality, and change it if necessary.

Eat Breakfast

While this isn’t necessarily a ritual, eating breakfast has more positive effects than you think. “Studies have found that although people who skip breakfast eat slightly fewer calories during the day, they tend to have higher body mass index or BMI,” says Christy C. Tangney, Ph.D., a clinical dietitian at Rush University Medical Center and an expert on the effects of diet and nutrition on heart health.

Exercise

Every day when you get out of bed to do a couple stretches and simple exercises. Doing this not only increases your physical health, but it will also make you feel a lot better – physically and mentally. Those who get up in the morning and do exercises feel better through the entirely of the day. You automatically start your day off positively, and you’ll be in better physical health.

Lemon Water

Not only will a mug of warm lemon water help you stay energized, but it will also speed up your metabolism, help balance you pH levels, and improve digestion!

Stop Sleeping in On Weekends 

When you sleep in on weekends you throw your body off for the rest of the week. When you get yourself in the habit of waking up early and then spoil it on the weekends you are just setting yourself up for “failure”. Get up at your usual time and have a more eventful weekend. This is potentially the reason why everybody hates Mondays! Because your body wants to sleep in, I mean why not? It did it for the rest of the weekend, why not today?

Stretch

When you sleep your body can stiffen and slow down your lymph system and stall it. A good morning stretch can loosen the whole body and muscles and activate your organism. It will likewise increase blood flow and reduce stress and tension.
