Hadley Finch intro: I see each sunrise as the dawn of possibilities and each sunset as a celebration of a day lived richly. Discover how to consciously energize, savor and celebrate each day with a daily practice by Caroline Myss.

Your Daily Practice – 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.

Your Daily Practice – Evening

As you prepare to enter sleep, review how you used your energy during the day, how you invested your spirit, what you learned about the investments you should or shouldn’t have made.

Review the events of today:

Think about how you feel about yourself and your life now that the day is over.
Ask yourself, “How do I open myself to receive guidance as I sleep?”

Your Seventh Chakra

Focus your attention on the crown of your head where your energy connects most directly to spiritual guidance.
Return to the truth that there is a divine reason for every single experience in your life.
Reflect on the million things that happened to you today and be appreciative of them all.
Remember that everything is a divine design for our learning and for our blessing.

Your Sixth Chakra

Focus your attention on your mind.
Ask yourself, “Did I invest my energy today in any negative attitudes, beliefs or perceptions?”
If so, identify them, take a deep breath, call that energy back and release it with the thought “I don’t need this negativity.”
Review any and all judgments you made about yourself or others, take a very deep breath and release them.
Look at the positive things you invested in today and be grateful.
Repeat the prayer, “I release the desire to know why things happen as they do and the need to have my expectations met.”

Your Fifth Chakra

Move your attention to your center of will and choices, your throat area.
Did you make choices that enhanced your life today? If so, bless those choices, take a deep breath and decide to put your energy into more of them.
What choices drained your energy? Review them, call your spirit back and tell it that you disempower those choices and release them.
Ask yourself “Did I speak with honesty and integrity?” If not, call your spirit back and release those words.
Take a deep breath and direct your will toward blessing the whole of your own life and all the people who are in your life.
Finally, say the prayer, “I release my will to divine guidance.”

Your Fourth Chakra

Take a deep breath to the center of your emotions, your heart.
Review all of your emotions; are you angry? hurt? sad? Release all the negative feelings so you don’t take them into your sleep with you.
Move into and feel the energies of love, compassion, appreciation of other people, and love of this life. Envision those energies as rose petals and walk through your entire day with the image that you are leaving those petals at every place you have walked.
Concentrate now on attitudes and feelings about love, on your need to be loved, and on people you love dearly. Ask your spirit to enter only into loving thoughts through the night.
How have you done with forgiveness today? Place each person you need to forgive in front of you and to each say, “This is what I need to forgive you for and I am working at doing that”.
Now flip the coin and ask forgiveness of those you have harmed.
Picture leaving the rose petals with the prayer “I want to be at peace with you”.
Say the prayer, “Teach me more about the divine power of love as I sleep”.

Your Third Chakra

Move your attention to the center of self, your solar plexus.
Ask yourself, “Did I take care of my physical body today? Did I maintain the attitudes and belief patterns that best suit me?”
Take a deep breath, stretch out and feel the entire strength and health of your body. Identify any areas of weakness and loss of power. Call your spirit back.
Did you live up to your honor code or do you have to remind yourself to live it better tomorrow?
Were you judgmental or critical of yourself or others today or did you extend kindness and compassion?
Pray “Give me guidance on who I am and what my task is in this life; why I am with the people I am and how to best serve that role”.

Your Second Chakra

Direct your thoughts to your spine, lower back, hips and genital area.
Do you have any negativity that you’re carrying in regards to your relationships? Finances? Job? Creative ventures?
Feel all those fears, go into them and ask yourself, “Why am I so afraid of change?”
Release those fears with a prayer of trust to the Divine: “Move into my life. Change what you need because I am here for service. I may fear the changes but I trust the changes.”
Now focus on the positive side of relationships, finances and creativity. Celebrate all the people whom you love and enjoy, the blessings you have and the ideas you have brought forth into the world.
Conclude with this prayer: “I offer myself as a gift-giver; let me use the gifts given me by the Divine to serve and honor others.”

Your First Chakra

Focus on the base of your spine, your connection to Gaia, force of nature.
Place your body in a relaxed position and request Gaia,”Watch my body and give me guidance as I seek to resolve the issues I’ve put forth”.
Take a deep breath and imagine your spirit beginning to lift and leave your body. Feel yourself unhooking as your energy begins to move through all your chakras, out the top of your head.
Stand over your body watching it sleep and then allow your spirit to let go, with the blessing, “I’ll see you in the morning”.
