The morning is one of the most sacred parts of your day. If you wake up with a bad attitude you can start the day on a negative path, whereas if you wake up with ease your day can flow with grace. In this video I share my morning ritual and why it’s so important to my happiness, health and purpose. I hope this video inspires you to start your day with a miracle mindset! Feel free to post your morning rituals in the comments below.

  1. Love the prayer! I get out of bed around 6 am, make some green tea with hydrolyzed collagen, and settle onto my meditation pillow. There I read my ACIM mantra for the day, meditate for 15-20 minutes, then head over to the lounge chair to read a few pages in the Course. Then I usually have some protein and head to the gym for a workout. πŸ™‚ Loving my mornings. I’m curious, Gabby, when do you do your TM morning meditation?

    1. This rocks! You’re doing awesome work. My mornings have changed since having my son, but I always make meditation a priority.

  2. Recently I been using my universe has your back card deck daily after meditation and EFT also stretching the body. I use the app daily but the alarm wasn’t working properly.

  3. Hi Gabby!!

    Will the Spirit Junkie app be available for Android anytime soon? I would LOVE to have this to incorporate in my morning <3

  4. Hi Gabby!

    Love all of your vlogs. I never use to be a morning person until I started to take advantage of the ‘me-time’ I have when I first wake up. I’m a member of Get More Gabby and in the morning I’ll have a glass of warm lemon water while listening to one of your podcasts, choose from one of the guided meditations, or even watch one of your vlogs on youtube. It starts my whole day off with positive energy and good vibes and I absolutely love this new morning ritual I have.

    Thank you for being part of my mornings, you’re a major inspiration!:)


  5. I appreciate this morning ritual very much – I love the idea of ritual, but, I’m one of those “busy” people who has great difficulty finding a sustainable routine. I know what I’d like my morning, I think, to resemble: (I love all these posts about kissing your partner first thing – I do admire him for a few moments every day, but, I think I’ll bring more attention to this from now on), 1) express silent gratitude to the universe, 2) meditate, 3) have tea/lemon water/whatever calls, 4) move (yoga or a walk/run), 5) eat, 6) read, and then 7) prepare for the day/work. But, that’s a lot to squeeze in when it’s tough to get up and motivated for work in the first place. Perhaps that’s why nothing sticks yet – I already don’t feel like getting out of bed. I push it off groggily thinking it’s no big deal to stay down for a few more minutes, even if I’m not tired, and then I end up squeezing in my meditation and running late. Thanks for reading and for giving us so much material to help us improve our short, precious moment on this planet.

  6. I ask “How can I best be of service today?” and have a morning meditation (and sometime yoga) before starting with apple cider vinegar and ginger tea. Usually this includes snuggles from my boys and then on to breakfast of steamed kale and rice with hemp and chia seeds and coconut oil. Thanks everyone for sharing such an important part of the day!

  7. I love my ayurvedic little morning ritual with cleaning my tongue, oil pulling and dry brush and oil my body. After that hot water with lemon (love it!!) and prayer, affirmation, meditation and Yoga, breakfast with my family. I love those 90 minutes before everybody wakes up….thank you for the prayer idea in bed. Will adopt that !!!

  8. Loved hearing your morning ritual. I was wondering when you meditate. I often wake up- say to myself “universe where would you have me go, what would you have me do, what would you have me say and to whom” then I get ready to go the gym- get my water bottle- walk my dog quickly then off I go to the gym. I come back- take a quick shower then meditate.

  9. I wake up and first thank God for another day.
    I usually place my feet on the floor (for grounding) and give thanks for a few minutes then head to brush my teeth.
    While brushing my teeth if any thoughts arise I would like to let go of, I send them down the drain with the water (this could include freaky dreams I had).
    Then I go to my meditation couch and spend 22 minutes meditating. After that, I have my coffee and do my readings for the morning. This is followed by my green smoothie after serving my son breakfast and reading a positive daily quotation with him. Thanks for sharing, I’ve enjoyed reading everyone’s morning rituals.

  10. I’m spending two weeks at a resort with some family and while it’s been uncomfortable and lonely being away from my boyfriend and NYC, it’s also been a blessing because it’s helped me to re-adopt my morning rituals. When I wake up, the first thing I do is drink some water to refresh my body and mind. I’m trying not to check my phone when I wake up – sometimes it’s inevitable because I am checking the time and a message will pop up, so I leave the ringer on for emergency calls but turn off message notifications because I find my mind is not ready to be thrown into discussion first thing. I’m gradually adjusting my coffee intake (totally going to adopt the caffeine after food, instead of before) and I try to sip it slowly, stopping when I feel the caffeine so that I don’t over do it and make myself anxious. For breakfast I like to have some sort of fresh juice, lately I’ve really been appreciating grapefruit juice. I find a juice or a smoothie wakes me up more than coffee. Sometimes I’ll have fruit and some nuts for breakfast with a tablespoon of coconut oil, or if Im hungrier I’ll include something with more protein or carbs. Then, I set my daily intention/affirmation and I write it on my mirror in lipstick to revisit throughout the day πŸ™‚ If I wake up with any lingering negative feelings/energy, I combat it. For example, if I was up late and feel like “I’m too tired to possibly be able to make it through this day,” I counter that by mindfully including some extra protein and carbs in my day as well as by telling myself, “I am strong, I have the power and strength to glide through the day peacefully. All is well in my world.”

  11. Simple! And so powerful! And thanks for the coconut oil tip in the coffee! I like to add raw cacao power, too. NOMz It’s been sweltering here in the Pacific Northwest so it’s been ICED coffee and tea.

  12. Thank you for your awesome messages and info. First thing when I open my eyes in the morning, say thank you. Then I drink half a glass of Stabalized Aloe Vera Gel. Then I drink an amazing Vanilia Potein Shake in my favourite Pineapple juice. I take the time to meditate as well.

  13. I really like thos quote of the Dalai Lama for my mornings ritual and it is really wonderful.
    “Every day think as you wake up: ‘Today I’m fortunate to have woken up. I am alive, I have a precious humen life and I’m not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
    I am going to have kind thoughts through others. I’m not going to get angry, or think badly about others. I’m going to benefit others as much as I can”

  14. After reading this post and comment I realized that it’s time to rethink my own “morning ritual”. Brushing the teeth and hitting the road right the way isn’t the best one =)

  15. Hi Gabby,
    I was very relieved to now you drink coffee again ahahhahah. Joking. I been in that journey of coffee addition, being free of it and coming back again, a few times. I know that I can live without it and having energy, but even so I realy like the boost of energy that it gives to me,because I tend to be a slow motion being ahhah. But I want to tank you for the clue for putting coconut oil in the coffee that problably will help to maintain an extra energy a longer period.
    For finish my morning ritual :
    1.Crawl to the arms of my husband and be grateful for him to be there every morning;
    2. Kiss my cat that is sleeping just besides me;
    3. A good body stretch ;
    4. Make a green smoothie for the family;
    5.Silent green smoothie/family moment (can be a meditation our a reading time, but always a silent moment together with my husband and pets)
    6. Coffee TIME πŸ˜‰

    1. When I’m home, I’ll often make my S.O. a smoothie or green juice in the morning too πŸ™‚ It makes me happy to feel like I’ve helped us both start out on a healthy note.

  16. Hi, any suggestions for a morning ritual for mothers of toddlers?….Since my daughter is with us nearly everything has changed. Sometimes is seems as if there is no space for me-time in the mornings…

  17. I like to scan my body for any aches and pains before even opening my eyes sometimes, and tune into my emotions. Maybe I just came out of a weird dream or whatever may be lingering. Then I send myself love and comfort to soothe myself before the day begins. Then maybe some stretches–still in bed. Then I like to get up and practice yoga and meditate. This sets the stage for my day, and really improves my focus, clarity & general disposition. Thanks everyone for sharing, this is fun!

  18. Very dangerous advice.

    Many Drs would disagree with your nutrition advice.

    Dr Joel Fuhrman
    Dr Barnard
    Dr Esselstyn
    Dr Campbell

  19. First thing I do when I wake up is a quick in bed stretch and then lots of loving on kitties. Sharing that positive energy with them starts everything the right way. Power of purr!

  20. This is exactly what I needed! Right after I watched this I downloaded the Spirit Junkie app, so now I can wake up to a beautiful affirmation every day.

    Thank you Gabby.


  21. Dear Gabby, my husband and I were Coffe junkies and we usually crash after and we come out with a great fruit smoothie and we put raw cacao in it and maca and that energy that the cacao gives us is amazing. Also is so good for you. It will send you to the bathroom immediately that is great.
    We use organic fruit, organic juice, maca, flax seeds,bee pollen, cacao butter, raw vegan protein and that keeps us alive till 3 that we do our green juice and we do our regular diner but most of veggies and quinoa.
    I just want to share because I will love to see you off caffeine….
    Love you and thank you for all your videos. You kick ass ??

  22. My morning ritual is so valuable to my well being. I start the morning with lemon water and a probiotic. Then i hop back in bed, read something inspirational, then journal, frequently writing how happy i am to be with my journal. Many times i will start my writitng with what i notice aorund me, light pouring in the window or the birds chirping, rain…then Monday through Friday i do a yoga and pilates mix. What i think is so good about it is that it starts my day grounding in all the realms, spirit, mind/emotion and body.

  23. My morning ritual consists of waking up around 7am and making my tea or Golden Tonic. I read, write in my Gratitude Journal, and review my goals for an hour while my body wakes up. Following that at around 8am I start my workout or meditate. After my workout I prepare my breakfast and head out or start work for the day. πŸ™‚

  24. Cs Lewis: It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all your natural fussings and frettings; coming in out of the wind.

  25. We’ve been doing so good with our morning ritual.

    Saying – I love me – when we first wake up
    Thank God.

    Sometimes workout.
    Then we review our goals, write in our gratitude journal and try to do some visualization.

    And yay for coffee. We love it. It is part of our morning too.

  26. I give God thanks for all of my current blessings in my life. I ask him to adjust my mindset to let me be a blessing to everyone I come in contact with this day before I let me feet hit the floor. Tea/cofee- emails etc. πŸ™‚

  27. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚ My morning ritual: slowly opening my eyes and smiling, positive visualization, prayer, inspirational quotes, stretching, ACV lukewarm water with manuka honey or stevia and cayenne pepper, chia pudding or green drink or fruits at the moment and Tulsi tea… πŸ™‚ <3

  28. Hi Gabby, thank you for sharing your morning ritual. I really would love to change my morning ritual because I hop over to Instagram & Facebook right away. inspired me to change! I’m having water with lemon too everyday so at least that’s something πŸ™‚ Xoxo Judith

  29. For almost three months I found the perfect morning ritual.
    First thing, I take the dog out (even if she is still very sleepy) for a little walk to breathe fresh air! Then I have my special morning drink which I prepared the evening before:
    2 teaspoons of bee pollen, 1 teaspoon of local honey with warm water. A beekeeper told me that the bee pollen has to soak over night and then I fill it up with hot water and fresh lemon juice. This is the perfect little invitation for my immunsystem to get me through the day (and it tastes so good!)…
    Try it!

  30. You’re amazing role model Gabby, thank you.

    My morning ritual is hot water with lemon as soon as I wake, walk/run for an hour, have a hot shower, have a lemon and ginger tea, do 10-20 minutes of meditation, say a prayer of gratitude, have a cuddle with my husband, make a high protein, high fat vegan, Fructose and sugar free green smoothie, sometimes make my lunch for the day (if I haven’t done it the night before) and then leave for the office to kick ass on my start up πŸ™‚ I need to get up at 5am to fit everything in before 8:30am πŸ˜‰

  31. Prayer #1……R.P.I. Rise, Pee, Meditate w/ Davidji….. Lemon water for digestion jump-start, 20 mins. of walk, yoga, etc. to get metabolism moving before any food or coffee. Seems to set the pace. I like the affirmation,!
    I need to add that πŸ™‚ Thanks Sista X/O

  32. Hi Gabby! Thanks for sharing your morning rituals.
    My morning ritual: I wake up saying “Thank you Lord”.
    Then I do a routine that I picked up from a book called “Miracle Morning”…that’s a highly recommended read. I follow the 6 practices suggested in the book:
    S…Scribing (Journaling)
    I spend just a few minutes on each of these, but it starts my day on a great note. Exercise for me is Yoga & for Reading….I’m on the 3rd week of your May Cause Miracles Book & LOVING it!!!! Thank you sooooo much for everything.

  33. OMU Gabby just last week I was wondering what your morning ritual was, so thank you so much for sharing! I start with a prayer, followed by coffee and A Course In Miracles (may need to revisit that!), reviewing my vision board, then my 20 minute meditation, and finally an upbeat dance to a song with my fiancΓ© and thanking the sun for rising! I ADORE my mornings, I am so grateful for the peace and stillness before the day begins. Elyse x

  34. I’ve tried creating a morning ritual but find it very difficult to stick with it. My ideal morning ritual would be to wake up to the Spirit Junkie app via Samsung ;), wash my face, have lemon water, transcendental meditation for 20mins, and have a green smoothie. Thanks for the inspiration to begin my mornings on a lighter/less hectic path.

  35. Hey Gabby,

    the first thing I do when I wake up, is cuddling with my two year old son, at least for 10 minutes. It’s the best wake up call to see his cute face and here “mommy” out of his mouth. Then I usually do a 2 min. stretching. It’s not much, but it’s something :-), then I prepare our breakfast, usually oats, chia pudding or fruits of any kind. No caffein for me lately, because it doesn’t make me feel good, although I love coffee. Thanks for sharing your routine! Check out my website. We’re both on a very similar path, I think! Love and Gratitude, Paula

  36. Lately I wake up and do my light therapy by Elan. It’s a great system to look into, they even have a setting to align your chakras.

    I then go into prayer and meditation, my dog coco always by my side πŸ™‚ Then I make myself an antioxidant paleo smoothie. Meditation is now a crucial part of my connection to God. Much love

  37. I wake every single day for the last 4 years with a song in my head. It could anything from Marcin Gay to Godsmack to Dean Martin. Totally random. Why?

  38. I thank The Divine Intelligence for another day of life. Thank for guidance and protection, do a few stretches while in bed then get out of bed and right onto my sheep skin next to my bed for a few minutes of silent meditation. Finally drink some warm lemon water.

  39. Hi Gabby, I am desperate for the Spirit Junkie app but it’s not available on Android. ;( I don’t have an iPHONE or an iPAD What to do??? Love you! xo

  40. Good morning lovely Gabby. I firstly just wanted to thank you so much for all your inspiring teachings. My husband and I have just begun to embark on our spiritual journey through your “May Cause Miracles” book… we’re really loving it! My morning routine includes listing 5 things I am grateful for in my life.. then up and out of bed on the right foot, straight to the shower. I then prep breakfast. Usually we kick off with a cup of hot bone broth (its winter in Australia and we’ve both recently converted as paleo nerds which also has been profoundly life changing!). Then we will enjoy poached eggs on almond meal toast and avocado and enjoy reading each other’s Miracle Affirmation cards. After my husband leaves for work I will jump on my mini trampoline to an ABBA song which always makes me laugh – jumping on the trampoline is such fantastic fun whilst spilling out my affirmations..I will then meditate for about 15 mins πŸ™‚ Then I will leave for work and continue affirmations in the car which sets me up for a lovely, miraculous day. Thanks so much again Gabby – have a lovely, miraculous day! πŸ™‚

  41. The moment I open my eyes I say, “I surrender to you angels of the highest truth” Then I do a kundalini meditation. After that I make a smoothie and go for a run by the beach to get my body moving. Can’t wait for spirit junkie alarm clock for samsung! When it comes out it’ll be part of my morning ritual. Ps. Love you deeply

  42. The first thing I do each morning is to light a stick of incense sending blessings & gratitude (via the smoke) to my ancestors & descendants xo


  44. My morning ritual is waking up, saying three things I’m thankful for, asking for three things out of my day, nourishment, and then getting down to business. πŸ™‚

  45. I have just added a visualization practice while I am waking. But typically it is a 20 min meditation followed by 20 min oil pulling while I read something inspirational. 5 min of scalp massage/hair brushing and then up for some quick exercise to wake my body up ~ tibetan rites, om gym, planks, wall squats or rebounder or a combo of a few. Grab a jug full of water with herbal infused apple cider vinegar and then it is time to start my day!!! When my hunger awakens typically later in the day I grab my first meal ~ either an elixir, green smoothie or overnight oatmeal/chia pudding I’ve prepared the night before. Starts my day off right!!!

  46. My morning rituΓ‘l is so to speak sweaty. I wake up and after bathroom I do regularly 12 or 14 sun salutations rounds. I started with this ritual 246 days ago. In the beginning I swear to do 3 mornings sun salutations rounds then my friend told me to do six, so I did six from the next day. To stay flexible after Sunday’s body pump classes I told myself to do 11 rounds from Monday to Wednesday. On weekends I used to do 21 rounds. And today I on workdays do 12 or 14 (20 minutes) and on weekends I do 24 (45 minutes). After this rounds of sun salutations I used to be quietly for some time to be gratefully present on the start of new day, then I take shower and go for walk to work. I don’t forgetting to smile for every person I meet.

  47. Love this video, thank you for sharing πŸ™‚ I can’t seem to wake up early in the morning or get to bed early no matter how hard I try and I don’t feel rested when I wake up. Would love some guidance on this. Thank you! ??

    1. Hi Ashley try to reduce the amount of artificial lights after sunset. This will tell your body it’s time to produce melatonin to make you sleepy. If that doesn’t make a diff Google Sleep cocktail by doc parsley it’s a natural night time drink to help you sleep. Best of luck.

  48. Hi Gabi,

    I enjoy waking up before 6am if i have gone to bed early enough (70% of the time). Just gives my whole day a head start without a mad rush. Instantly boil the kettle, and while that goes off I stretch and then write a list of gratitude for the day while i drink my thermo tea and have my breakfast shake. Just helps center me and put me on a good vibration for the day. After i have written my list i peruse my daily and weekly schedule so i am aware of what is expected of me and get my day started. Often i have more done before 9am than i would in an entire week when i wake up early and follow this routine. Completely energises me even though getting up is actually the hardest part sometimes.

    Love your vids!!

    Love from Cape Town, South Africa

  49. My morning ritual – meditate for an hour. Affirmations. Look at my moms photo (she passed a month ago). Drink 1 1/2 liters of water before drinking a protein shake. Sing devotional songs out loud , chanting while driving to work . When I get to work I feel so in control no one can disturb my peace cos I own the great feeling I created in my head .

  50. I am so blessed to have attended your Spirit Junkie Master Class last month. I just purchased your alarm app to add to my morning ritual. Thank you for being the light at this time in my life ….I loved to shine my light each day through my work with children but I’ve decided to spend 3/4 of this time at home with my own kids. It has been a transition and you have helped crack me open in so many ways on how to enjoy the little things and dig deep into what is next to come and lead others. “I Walk with Gabby” is what keeps popping in my head. I loved the quote you opened with that seminar stating how much easier life is if we know someone else is walking with us. Thank for holding my hand as we walk through this journey together!

  51. Thank you for sharing with us! I go to the kitchen and grab myself a big glass of water followed by a morning mediation outside on my porch guided on the Buddify app. It starts off the day with a positive tone and reminds me to continue to be mindful and live my day with intention. ??????

  52. I love that you have spiritual rituals every morning, Gabby. This is something I could benefit from adding to the start of my day, because usually I jump on social media first thing, yikes! I’d love it if you stayed off caffeine, at least on a regular basis, but it sounds like you’ve tried. I drink herbal tea everyday instead, as I too was a caffeine-aholic. The ritual of scooping out the grounds into the machine, smelling it while it brews, pouring the aromatic blend into my favorite mug and adding some milky deliciousness….so hard to give up and yet so worth it! Coffee breath, really? Who needs it? I like your tips about adding fat, like coconut oil, so I’ll definitely pass along that tip to my clients who aren’t ready to kick the habit. Thank you!

  53. Gabby, you have changed my life since I started reading your books in August 2013 when I became a first time empty nester. I look for your guidance in every aspect of my life and am living testament that miracles do happen everyday! I am not a breakfast person, but I do drink hot water with lemon before my coffee and now will try to eat something healthy before my caffeine. You are a true inspiration and it is so easy to feel your love. Thank you for being a gift/miracle worker to me.

  54. I set my alarm 15 minutes before my husband’s because I love the feeling of snoozing. It kind of tricks me into the happy place of sleeping in (I would really like to get to a level of no longer needing a “trick” to get to a “happy place” though!).
    We get up at 6, leave for the gym. Workout for 45 minutes. Usually cardio followed by weights.
    Once I’m home, I jump in the shower while he makes smoothies and coffee.
    I go from the shower to meditation. Right now, it’s 7 minutes of morning call, 11 minutes of Wahe Guru, Wahe Jio, and then a short 6 minute kriya from my teacher – not sure what its called but he gave it to me for negativity and a strong, mean ego.Then I add on my prayers for the day – I bow to the entities that guide me (my higher self, my guardian angels, etc.) and thank them for my life, my health, my job, etc. And I send love and blessings to my loved ones. Then I get up and get ready and go about my day. I’m going to start praying right away as suggested in the vlog. Thanks for sharing!!

  55. Delicious Gabby! I loved hearing about your morning rituals and thank you for sharing (I too had been curious lol). Likewise, I begin my day with a warm lemon water, a meditation with my love followed by a loving yoga session and of course a smoothie! I adore this and feel so honoured each time your beautiful videos drop into my inbox. Thank you!! <3 So much love!

  56. Felt resonance with your honesty this am and appreciate the validation I receive from you…I battled with coffee as a vice until I heard Dr. Northrup say that those who live into their hundreds have daily rituals of pleasure..guilt-free…so I will take my butter coffee with pleasure, wash that blender out with joy and hot water, and sip that coffee with true bliss…love you!

  57. Love your post. In the past 6 I have focused on being conscious upon awakening instead of flying out of bed. I consciously take a breath and thank the heavens above for another great day. I oil pull, dry brush with essential oils, and then say..”I move forward in my day without any hesitations. I am filled with love, compassion and peace”. I then do a 5 minute energy routine from Donna Eden. In the kitchen I take probiotics, and antioxidants, lemon and water, my fat latte aka..bulletproof tea..Loaded with organic cinnamon and vanilla, brain octane, cocoa butter and hemp seeds. .love this. I follow this with a green drink about an hour later. I also get dresses and brush my teeth along the way, wake up children, feed the dogs etc. But with more consciousness. .that’s my goal.

  58. Hi Gabby!
    Thanks for sharing!! This topic has been on my mind for last few weeks….especially for this week so what great article to open up in my email today. Thanks for the inspiration (as always) my plan is my lemon/apple cider vinegar warm water drink, meditate, possibly walk or yoga before getting ready to leave for work. Thanks ! Namaste

  59. Hi Gabby! Thanks for sharing your morning routine with us. I like to incorporate Donna Eden’s 5-Minute Energy Medicine Routine into my morning to keep my energy flowing smoothly and sustainably. Also: I’ve been drinking Leanne Vogel’s version of the Bulletproof Coffee lately– she calls it a Rocket Fuel Latte– and it’s AMAZING. It’s specifically tailored to keep women’s hormones balanced and it’s dairy free/sugar free, too. (Same idea as BPC but with better results, especially for ladies.) I hope that it’s not coming across as spammy by putting the direct link for her recipe in here. I’m not an affiliate of hers (just a fan!), and this morning drink is totally INCREDIBLE: Sat nam!

  60. Hi Gabby! I’m the lady who sent you a video a couple weeks ago thanking you for your work (and my breakthrough on judging myself)!

    I have a poster on the opposite wall of my bed with several affirmations like, “God is working right now on my behalf,” “What I need is already here.” So when I wake I hit the snooze, look at my affirmations and ask God to align my heart with these truths. I often doze off and on, repeating this ritual a few times. It feels like God is just tending to my heart and I can feel it lifting. I try not to get out of bed until I feel fully aligned.

    Then I’m off to my prayer space to focus on gratitude, pray for my friends and family and be reminded my dreams and desires are already here and God has my back!

  61. My morning routine starts with meditation. I sit up in bed and either do your monthly meditation from Grt More Gabby and often I go back to January to do the manifesting meditation to hold my vision for the changes I would like to see in my life. Then I do my lesson for the day from ACIM. The another meditation, I’m using the Headspace app and I love all the packets they have on different aspects of life from creativity to stress to acceptance and change. And finally from ACIM and a talk from Marianne Williamson I say “where would you have me go, what would you have me do, what would you have me say and to whom”. Then I get up and eat oatmeal with some fruit and go about gym bathroom routine to get ready for work.

  62. What a great post, morning routines are so important!

    My own routine is very simple. I wake up and hit snooze once, which gives me 5 minutes to send out love and gratitude and establish a positive mindset for the day.
    Then I (sometimes literally) roll out of bed and onto the mat and do 6-12 rounds of Sun Salutations to get moving first thing out of bed.
    After my regular shower etc I meditate for ten minutes and after that have a green smoothie that I load up with a ton of leafy greens. That way I know I have a solid base of plant nutrition, no matter what happens later in the day.

  63. Loved this! I have struggled with this for a while, and these tips are awesome. I super hope the Spirit Junkie Alarm Clock app will soon become available on Android – I love the affirmations Gabby posts on Instagram and know these will help start the day right. <3

  64. Love this, Gab!
    I’m always interested in hearing about peeps *intentional* morning routines..
    I’ve cultivated mine over many years, always trying new ways to centre myself before the day.. Currently my morning ritual is as follows:
    First thing I say when I stir in the morning is ‘thank you thank you thank you…’, then make sure I use the right foot to get out of bed (a la your kundalini miracles now lesson), then say ‘I Love You, Vicky!’ in the mirror, and onto a glass of water (I did lemon cayenne for years but the acidity was too harsh for my teeth unfortunately), put on water for a pot of Yerba Mate, head to my altar, light a candle and listen to meditative music while I connect with the sacred pieces on my altar (which includes angel feathers, photos of Mother Mary, Jesus, Yogi Bhajan, and a photo of our Level 2 group), then I meditate/ connect to God/ joy/ love for about 10 minutes in preparation for my daily ACIM lesson (I’m on lesson 122 today, and it is rocking my world in the most beautiful way!), then meditate some more on the lesson, then in prayer I surrender my day and biz to God, ask to be used, put mine and my hubby’s relationship on God’s alter, pray for my family, for my Lightworker Nation community, for you, and for anyone suffering to feel God’s love.. then I ask the Angels to protect me and ground my energy. I absolutely adore mornings because of my morning routine and this’ll be a huge piece of what I teach people.. Creating a morning ritual that works for them and serves their spirit.. xo.

  65. I am so impressed and inspired after reading all these spirit junkie morning rituals. I wake up, get pulled in to checking everything on my phone (just being honest), get out of bed, brush my teeth while I open up all the windows, wash my face and head to my meditation pad for at least 5min most to the time I do my Get More Gabby meditation, than breakfast. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing your ritual Gabby!

  66. Thank you for sharing you’re morning ritual get Gabby. I’m definitely going to download your spirit junkie app because I to reach for my phone in the morning and find sometimes just getting stuck and social media.

  67. I wake around 5AM, do a 30 minute workout, then move into my meditation space that is so lovely and meditate, pray, burn some sage and a candle. I look forward to it and if I miss it, it changes the course of my day. And I love adding new items to my alter. This space is in my walk-in closet and closed off to members of my home and anyone else. I’m very careful as to who or even if someone can enter this space. It truly is my sanctuary. Oh, then I take my supplements, drink warm lemon water and like Gabby, green smoothie, hot rice cereal with nuts and fruit or eggs. I love eggs. And coffee, decaf. We all have our vices! Thanks Gabby!

  68. Thank you for continually sharing your authentic self with the world. It takes courage and perseverance! Applause, applause, applause

  69. Thanks for sharing Gabby. I love morning rituals to set the tone for the day. I’m interested to know if you’re still practising TM or Vedic meditation? I’d always been advised to practice on an empty stomach so this is always the first thing I do. However I find the rigidity difficult at time. Any thoughts on fitting in yoga and meditation with your other aspects? Thanks

  70. Hi Gabby! I am a coach who has been helping others for years with their own stresses, goals, plans and rituals. My own Achilles heel involves being woken up by my 3 young children either during the night or in the too-early AM! I’ve tried waking before them to have a morning ritual of gratitude journaling, etc but they keep finding me πŸ˜‰ What are thoughts about morning rituals when the day starts less then zen-like? Thank you! Love, Janine

    1. I could use some help with this one also! Mornings with little ones are a struggle for me.

      Sending love to you all!!

  71. I love this!

    I wake up and have some warm water, then do a short movement routine and seated meditation, then a big breakfast of steamed sweet potato and greens, eggs, sauerkraut, avocado.

    Then coffee with full-fat coconut milk or bulletproof style, or tea, afterwards! Then I do hair, makeup and get dressed and I’m off. I love the morning : )


  72. Hi, thank you for sharing your morning ritual. I was wondering if you use a green powder or fresh veggies for your morning smoothie? If powder– which one? Would love some easy recipes.
    Have a beautiful day!

  73. Naturally wake up. Prayer and list 5 things I’m thankful for. Usually have a green smoothie (spinach, kale, pinapple, banana, coconut water and protein) super yummy and then take my frenchie for a 30 min walk. Then usually 30 mins of
    spiritual growth/reading and then off on my day πŸ™‚ – AG

  74. I wake up & say “Thank you for my bed” and then I see which nostril is less congested & if it’ my right side I step out of bed on y right foot. I thought I read about this is your book???

  75. Thanks for sharing Gabby! I love reading what others do!
    Before I get out of bed I close my eyes and recite my “What will you have me do” prayer and ask my guide what miracles I may perform today, (thanks for this! I love it!), I step onto the floor on the right foot, drink hot lemon water with a bit of live sea salt, (on the weekends or when I am traveling I have a decaf coffee with coconut milk and coconut oil), I light an incense and meditate, walk the dogs while listening to a spiritual or wellness speaker on my ipod, (loving this years Hay House Summit right now! The Wish Summit is always a favorite too!) When I get home I feed my pups and pick out my Miracles Now card…shower and out the door with a smile and gratitude that the universe has a great day planned for me!

  76. There is this break of light that comes through my blinds early in the morning. And for a few seconds in that light everything is perfect. I try to hold on to that moment for as long as I can. I thank God for the day before my feet reach the ground and move forward with my day.

  77. It’s funny, because I used to watch my 2 year-old nephew wake up and he would take a good half an hour to lie there in his crib, chill, read some books, talk to his stuffed animals before starting his day. I took a cue from him. I call it Waking Up Like Dylan. So I thank the bed for a beautiful sleep and for bringing me comfort. I don’t look at my phone for the first half hour of my day. I stay in bed and drink lemon water and focus on all of my energy on gratitude. I also do morning stretches and grounding exercises, focusing on the feet. I outstretch my arms to welcome the day. I think the 2 year-olds have it right πŸ™‚

  78. Thanks for sharing Gabby! You look like you’re glowing in this video. So beautiful!
    I drink warm water with lemon first thing in the morning, have a little something to snack on and usually one cup of coffee. The Bulletproof coffee is delish! I like to meditate first thing in the morning then do my workout. My morning workout is the one thing I never miss. This really sets my intention for the whole day. I love to mix it up and have fun with it. It might be lifting weights, yoga, Zumba, Pyio, running, you name it. I keep it fresh and fun. After my workout then I usually have a protein shake or some sort of smoothie and I’m ready to tackle my day.

  79. While still in bed I start with blessing and dedicating the day, stretch, shake and chant at the same time. Then oil pulling while boiling water, shower, dress and prepare breakfast. Drink the warm lemon water, followed by 45 Minutes – 1 hour of Sadhana (Mantra Meditations) and prayers. Breakfast is next, after which I leave for work or get cracking in my home-office. Only then do I switch my communication devices on.

    1. I love the idea/reminder of leaving communication device in off mode until morning ritual is completed. I notice when my emails are binging while I’m meditating it takes me out a little sometimes. I am going to get more consistent with this. Sat Nam.

  80. Thanks for sharing, Sweet Gabby. I wake and immediately roll out my yoga mat for a 20-30 minute practice then get the dog out the door for a walk in the park. At 6:45 is my ACIM call where I work the lessons with a circle of soulmates. I usually make my avocado smoothie (or something more creative if time) followed by Dr. Hyman’s version of Bulletproof coffee. I agree with the way it sustains me.

  81. Perfect timing as always! I was just contemplating what my morning routine needs to be, waking up and jumping on my laptop is definitely not enhancing my spiritual path. Thank you Gabby for this miraculous post!

  82. I’m definitely in need of a morning ritual intervention. I have a great evening ritual, but mornings are much tougher for me. I find myself feeling so exhausted when I wake up that all I want is a cup of tea and breakfast. I will also admit I’m guilty of going straight to Instagram and my email before getting out of bed (a new habit for me in the last 6 months or so). When I’ve gone through May Cause Miracles, I found I was able to get out of bed and do my morning exercise (I’ve done the course twice). I’d love your advice, Gabby! <3 a SJM sister

  83. Thank you so much for sharing Gabby!! I’m honestly grateful! Your video and the comments inspired me to change the way I start my days, which is rushing. I’m excited!

  84. This is my ideal morning ritual – with many thanks to you.
    – Prayer for what miracle the universe would have me do today
    – Spirit Junkie affirmation
    – cereal then tea
    – my 30 minute morning meditation (I do twice daily Vedic meditation)
    It’s an incredibly beautiful way to wake up and meet the day, and if for some reason I’m not able to start like this, I will always feel just a little off for the rest of the day.

  85. My morning ritual is to say thank you before I open my eyes! And really really feel the gratitude of another day sweep through my body. Then I drink an entire glass of water sometimes with lemon and sometimes I forget it. I then pull a miracles now card and put it at the front of my yoga mat. Usually move through 3 sun salutations and move my body in a way that feels good that day. Shower and head out the door πŸ™‚

  86. Hi Gabby!

    My morning ritual is quite similar. I start by getting out of bed with a nice stretch, grab my journal and write down my intentions for the day and how I want it to roll. I then take 10 minutes to meditate on those intentions. Lemon water first…of course! Then I usually have a smoothie, chia pudding or something else. And of course coffee before I leave the house. This time to myself in the morning has literally changed my life. It’s weird that this popped into my inbox, because I was just coaching a client on this.
    Thanks for the inspo!
    Natalie xx

  87. I love the idea of waking up saying to yourself, “What miracles would you have me perform today.” I want to work on remembering to say that to myself every morning. Thanks:)

  88. Drinking my BPC as I watch this! So yum. Thanks for the reminders about about the prayer and affirmation. It’s so easy to default to email and social media right off the bat. Have a lovely day all! xoxo

  89. Back on coffee!!! Thanks for your honesty with this. I remember it being a struggle for you to kick the coffee habit. Part of me feels weak or like a bit of a failure for not being able to quit coffee but I truly enjoy it! Love your rituals, thanks for sharing and I’ll be adding the “eat before caffeinating” for sure! Xo

  90. Love this Gabby. I always try to wake up before my husband (and the rest of the city!). I’m awake at 5am and use those couple of hours alone to journal, meditate, and just be. Sitting down with a pot of tea is my favourite morning ritual. There’s nothing I love more than starting my day with tea in a cute little teapot, sipping slowly, taking in the new day and giving myself the time to breathe and be.

  91. before opening my eyes I think about 3-5 things I’m grateful for and then I walk over to my yoga mat for anywhere from 15-60 minutes of kundalini yoga & meditation depending on what my schedule is. then coffee w/ canned coconut milk and a whole30 breakfast!

  92. hmm I’m very interested in this bulletproof coffee I keep hearing about! I switched to tea because coffee made me anxious but I do miss it sometimes. I love opening to any page in miracles now in the morning. Always on point and I also practice TM.

  93. Happy Monday!!! Life is so amazing! My morning ritual is to cuddle with my dog before getting out of bed – it gets the innocent love flowing. Then I let him outside, make my coffee and pick up ACIM, practice a lesson and read from the text while sipping on coffee. I was unaware of the sustainable energy aspect and love the idea of putting coconut oil in my coffee. I will try this tomorrow. Happy Days ALL ????

  94. I say 5 things I am grateful for and make sure I get out of bed on the right foot and say today will be a miraculous day. And then feed the cat……..

    PS: Would also love the Spirit Junkie alarm clock for Samsung

  95. Love this so much and I still do our frog poses sometimes! and I now I write my morning pages gotta get my journaling in and pick a Miracles Now card of course!


  96. Great topic! I always meditate in various ways but also always set intentions on what I want to feel today or what I want to experience. It’s powerful what manifests from this simple act. When I was in LA one day (I’m Aussie) I set an intention to feel connection and also to experience a moment of “WHOOAH!” Excitement. Pretty much everyone I walked past that day said hello (which I thought was strange until I remembered my intention and then I saw Obama!! They had closed off the street and I was like “Whooah, Oh my gosh!”
    I always set my day up like this!

  97. Hi Gabby! I love your morning rituals! I too cherish my morning, instead of a morning routine I call it, ‘my morning zen’ :). It includes prayer, morning gratitude, meditation, and journaling. Have an amazing week spirit junkies! Rise in love:)! xo Jess

  98. Oh Gabby you are so lovely!! πŸ™‚ <3

    My morning ritual: Say a gratitude prayer, give my partner a gentle kiss (and send a silent gartitude prayer for having him! πŸ™‚ ), do some yoga exercises to wake up my back, drink a green tea while picking my Mircales Now Cards for the day!!
    Wishing everyone a great morning πŸ˜‰ and a miraculous week ahead!
    Love, Alex

  99. Thanks for sharing with us! I’m one of those who loves to hear about other’s morning ritual πŸ˜‰
    I usually get up, drink my lemon water, then meditate and read in the bible. Also, I like to get my workout or yoga done in the morning before having breakfast. NOT checking my phone before breakfast is still a challenge that I work on daily…

    PS: I’d love to have the Spirit Junkie Alarm clock for my Samsung πŸ™‚

  100. My morning ritual is to say a prayer before I get out of bed, pull a Miracles Now card (always the perfect message!!) while my tea boils, and meditate for a few minutes. I love your suggestion to eat before the caffeine because I never do and feel a little chaotic in the mornings. I am going to switch it up this week and try having protein/fat before my tea. Thanks for the tip! xo

      1. For years I have had a ritual that I call KSPM…..I Kiss my husband, I Sip my hot water with lemon, I Pray, and then I Move (exercise)…… A great way to start my day! Thanks Gabby for all of your great tips….I am also ACIM follower, and I love your take on the Course- I have learned so much from you.
