33 spiritual morning rituals for success, empowerment, manifesting and wellness. Supercharge your morning routine or discover new morning ritual ideas to add to your own…
What Are Morning Rituals?
Morning rituals are habits that you adopt to start your day off better. The morning is a powerful time to focus on our intentions, connect with our spirit/higher self and increase our energy. Some of the most successful people in the world have morning rituals.
How you start your day sets the whole tone of your day, energetically. Even a small change every morning can make a big difference if done consistently.
Are Your Mornings Helpful?
Have a look at what you do every morning and how it affects you. If you don’t already do morning rituals the chances are you may be doing some time-sucking things that only deplete your energy. Some common things we do cloud our minds and trigger us to being negatively reactive.
By cutting these things out you can create more time to add a few life-affirming rituals in. If you are someone that gets up late, try getting up just 15 minutes earlier to create the time for this. Below are a few common bad morning habits that you might want to reconsider. Total transparency here, I used to do all three.
1. Checking Social Media
This is the most common way we start the day off badly. What you are doing is allowing a bunch of other peoples thoughts, lives and opinions to fill your mind before your own. It takes one annoying post or article to set a chain of thoughts that really don’t help you at all. There is plenty of time later in the day to check these posts if you need to when you are more centred.
“You can use social media,
but just don’t let it use you”
2. Reading, Listening To Or Watching The News
If you want to check the headlines or keep up with current events that is your choice. The problem is when you do this early in the morning. Most of the news is negative, scary, confusing and sensational. This puts you into a mental state of worry or fear first thing in the morning. This programs your mind to think this is a dangerous place to live, keeping you stuck in your lower chakras.
3. Checking Your Emails
Spam, adverts and other peoples requests on your time. If you run a business or work from home it might be tempting to do this as you start your day, just in case there is something urgent, right? I highly recommend you work within office hours from home. Otherwise, you are letting your boss or clients occupy your headspace 24/7.
Begining Mornings Rituals
The truth is you don’t have to get up at 4 am to have an effective morning routine (I don’t). If you only have five minutes then use them wisely. I think it is much easier to start small and then build up over time. If possible, try introducing three rituals to your morning with a minimum of 5 minutes dedicated to each one.
The beauty of morning rituals is that they can be perfectly customised to your lifestyle and personal needs. You can change them up, add to them, spend more or less time on each one.
Adopting new habits takes some time. You need to do these spiritual morning rituals for at least a month before they become true habits. It also takes some time to see and feel the difference in your mindset and life. At first, it will be hard and even uncomfortable. Keep going, it is worth it but you must commit to doing this.
TIP – Create A Reminder
Once you decide on a morning routine, write down in order each ritual on a piece of paper or a post-it note. Have this somewhere where you see it every morning when you wake up.
Alternatively, set a notification on your phone but just be careful to resist the temptation to check social media. A list is very helpful in the beginning so you know what you are doing in order. Eventually, it becomes second nature.
My Morning Routine
My morning routine was not that great a few years ago. I had heard about the power of morning rituals and that led me to read the book, The Miracle Morning. It really went into the studies that support morning rituals and had a clear structure to follow.

Book Recommendation – The Miracle Morning
As an author and someone that works from home a lot, having some control over my day is important. I have to be self-motivated and like many of you reading this, I am in the process of creating the life I want. Although I was grounding and shielding every morning, exercise and yoga were inconsistent. I also needed to work on my mindset and focus on my goals.
I started a series of morning rituals four years ago and have never looked back. It has definitely helped me along to way and I could not imagine going back to how things were before. If you want to know specifically what I do let me know below and I might write an article on this.
33 Spiritual Morning Rituals
Most of the information out there on morning routines and rituals focus on physical health, the mind and motivation. These are all great ways to start your day. If you are spiritual you might want to include more metaphysical methods to raise your vibration and manifest the life you want.
I’ve created an idea list for you below to choose helpful rituals to begin your day. I’ve broken them down into groups so you can more easily customise your own rituals. You could pick one from each category or go with what your needs are. Pick at least three things to begin or add them to your existing morning rituals.
15 Minutes or More?
Some of these rituals can take less than 5 minutes and that is all you need to start. A single yoga exercise can be done in this time but not for a longer yoga set. Reading is also something that you may want to do for 10 minutes. If you have one day a week where you have more time (your day off) then you could have a longer morning ritual on that day.

Thanks for this Ethan. These are all great suggestions; some of them I already have in practice. I’m definitely adopting the ritual of visualizing with clear quartz. I love knowing the detail of other’s morning routines and it would be very cool to know your personal routine. Hoping you will write a post on that in future.
Thanks for the feedback Janice!
This blog post really resonated with me . It was something that I had been looking for in my life.
Actually did a grounding meditation and wrote in my abandoned gratitude journal! Feeling more positive, thank you again.
Definitely not social media or the news! Here’s a few others; morning stretch, cleanse aura with selenite and/or Palo Santo smoke or spray, sit/ground with hematite. I agree, journaling is so great. It really helps to put your thoughts down on paper. I also make my lists in the morning when my head is clear.
It is really good charging myself in the morning. I have been doing sort of morning rituals for two months. I first do channelling central breathing, visualising send love power to family and people in workplace. Secondly, I do affirmation and matra with Amethyst prayers beads. Reading even short article about self development, writing my intention of a day, and very small exercise. I found that it could refresh and makes me prompt to start a day. I will keep doing this. By the way, I have recently worn Kayanite necklace and put small pendants of Moldavite and Citrine together. Wonderful!
These are wonderful suggestions Ethan I will definitely be adding some of these to my morning ritual and taking out a couple things too Thank you so much for this great post!!!
I was preparing for my morning meditation time when I wrote in my journal how disconnected I felt and unable to help myself feel better. So in hopes of getting inspired, I opened up Pinterest and this article was at the top of the page! I chuckled because it reminded me that even if I feel disconnected my guides and spirit are on duty 24/7! I need to begin changing my morning routine, especially during the pandemic. I have some great ideas from you and will begin to change how I start my day. Light and blessings to you! ✨✨
That’s great. I am so glad it found you when you needed it!
Hi Ethan , I enjoyed this article. i just finished reading the miracle morning. I started but found the early mornings too hard. I am now inspired again to try a different morning regime.
Yes, I think it has to work for your lifestyle
I happily read your lists and already do a few of them its nice that you give us more ideas. I am up at 5am each morn even though Iam retired with nowhere to go I use my time just checking the news (not good and I know it .so now I sit and breath with an Amethyst. today I will start a new ritual thank you
I’ve been looking to start a new routine for weeks. The first mistake I’ve personally noticed is looking up news on my phone for at least twenty mins. Cheers to all of us finding that perfect routine.
I would love to know YOUR 4 morning rituals!
