My Daily Spiritual Practice

One question I often get asked is, “What’s your daily spiritual practice?”

I can appreciate why this is such a common question. There are so many spiritual practices out there that it can feel daunting at times.

I think most of us can relate to this. We’ve all had times where we’ve thought, “Am I doing enough?” Or, “Am I doing this right?” Or, “How can I even fit all these things into my day?”

My daily spiritual practice

In this post I hope to offer some clarity by sharing my own daily spiritual practice. I’m psyched to share this with you! My intention is to show you the simplicity and joy of being on a spiritual path.

My daily spiritual practice goes something like this…

Morning affirmation

Gabby Bernstein meditating | Gabby Bernstein's spiritual practiceThe moment I wake up, I say an affirmation. This affirmation has changed over the years depending on what’s going on in my life.

My current affirmation is:

There is a way through every block.

I say this affirmation and then sit in stillness for a minute to let the words settle in. I turn to this affirmation whenever I need it throughout my day.

Morning meditation

For years I started my day with a meditation. But now that I’m breastfeeding my child first thing in the morning, I’m adjusting.

My 20-minute Transcendental Meditation practice is now part of my morning nursing routine. I turn off my phone, breastfeed my child and silently repeat my TM mantra. While this isn’t the traditional way to practice, it’s what works for me right now.

Meditating regularly is what matters

There are many ways to meditate and they’re all good. If you’re short on time, taking just a few minutes first thing in the morning to sit in stillness, pay attention to your breath or repeat an empowering mantra will transform the way you start your day.

Here is a simple mantra meditation you can practice each morning and anytime you need it:

You can also check out my beginner’s guide to meditation for more.

Praying throughout the day

All throughout the day, I pray. I’m always turning over my desires to the Universe and releasing the need to control. I ask for guidance, help and direction.

One prayer I love is:

I choose again.

I say this prayer often to call on my inner guidance system and choose love over fear.

Often my prayers are very conversational. Don’t be afraid to have a chat with spirit.

You might say something like, “Inner guide, I’m really freaking out about this work thing. I’m sick of feeling anxious and distracted. I’m turning over this worry to you. Thank you for helping me release this fear and thank you for guiding me to what I need. Show me what you’ve got.”

Afternoon meditation

Gabby Bernstein taking a walk | Gabby Bernstein's spiritual practiceIn the afternoon I sit for a 20-minute meditation that re-energizes me for the rest of the day! Instead of turning to coffee, I meditate.

If you think you don’t have time for a second meditation, I encourage you to give it a try and see what happens. I’ve found that meditation actually expands time by calming my nervous system and clearing my mind. When I come out of my meditation, I feel focused and refreshed.

Some days I’ll also take a long walk outdoors, connecting with nature and quieting my mind. Walking has been really important to me lately as I recover from postpartum anxiety. Moving my body and being outside helps me feel grounded and centered.

Evening prayers

When I sit down to dinner I pray with my family. We thank the Universe for all that we have, and we pray for friends and family members in need.

This moment of gratitude and appreciation is one of the best parts of my day, and it usually rounds out an evening that I’ve spent doing one of my favorite meditative practices: cooking!

Finally, before bed, I close the day with a prayer. I thank the Universe for another beautiful day and ask for a peaceful night’s sleep.

The benefits of having a spiritual practice

Daily prayer and meditation have been the foundation of my ritual for more than 15 years. I’ve found that there’s nothing more important than having a spiritual practice.

A daily spiritual practice offers you exactly what my morning mantra promises:

A way through every block.

My mission as a spiritual teacher is to help people strengthen their spiritual connection so they can move through life with ease and grace.

That’s why I created something to help you find your way through every block: the Miracle Membership.

Stay flexible with your spiritual practice

Remember, being on a spiritual path is not about being perfect. Your commitment is what matters:

While I meditate and pray every day, there are other practices that I weave in when I need them…

For example, as I said above, walking is very important to me right now. Other times I will practice Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) once or twice each day, tapping on whatever issue I want to work through.

I often do Kundalini yoga and practice visualization techniques, and I like to free-write in my journal, letting my intuition come forward.

In any moment I can surrender to the powerful presence of love through prayer, contemplation and stillness. | Gabby Bernstein | The Universe Has Your Back card deckIt’s awesome to have a toolbox full of techniques. The more consistent you are with your spiritual practice, the more techniques and tools you have on hand when you need them. And when you stay spiritually connected, you feel good!

So remember to be flexible. Lay a foundation of spiritual practices you turn to each day, and then add what you need when you need it.

Now I want to hear from you!

I hope this serves you.

    1. Great question, Sherri! This is a new challenge. It’s 21 days of meditation that will help you clear blocks and connect to your higher self. Much different content! xo

  1. Hi Gabby
    I start my day with writing my journal, I write a gratitude/abundance list, my intention for the day and my dream day. I then do a meditation. I started this practice when I went through a seriously tough time in December. It ended up with me losing my job and each day was really tough. Since then, I have found a little part time job and find practising really hard even with just a part time job. I am a complete stress head and need this practice daily. Since I found you online last week, I had fallen a bit on my practice and now, i am full steam ahead again…thank you!!! Also thanks to the whole world situation right now, which I personally think is a world and people saviour in many ways (not forgetting all those who have lost their lives so far). I now have time to practise regularly and try new things and I am busy trying out new meditations every day.
    thank you, thank you, thank you – I love you – you will be responsible for saving me 🙂

    1. I honor you, Sam, for showing up for yourself in this way and for your willingness to commit to a daily practice during this challenging time. It takes courage and strength to shift from fear to faith. I’m glad that you found this post at the right and perfect time and that it resonates with you. If you haven’t check it out yet, I think you will find my free one-hour anxiety relief workshop very helpful. It will be available until 4/5. Here is the link: http://www.gabbybernstein.com/relief.
      xoxo

  2. My meditation has been paused. I had a car accident I was hit from behind as I sat at a light. I am trying to make sense of it. I am feeling anxious and confused. I have a non stop buzzing in my ears, going to try and meditate again today. Do you have any meditation that might help, I have been diagnosed with post concussion syndrome and tinnitus. I was so excited ! Thought I was at a crossroads in my life I made every effort to cleanse my body and support my spirit in January. I am going to start the manifest challenge again and push through this.
    Thank you for always being present!

    1. First and foremost, Margaret, I’m sending you prayers and healing light. As long as your medical team has given you the okay to return to your meditation practice, you may want to check out the Kundalini mantra for healing. You can lie on your back with your palms facing up while listening to this mantra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQrs9zlOW1U to receive the healing energy. xoxo

  3. Thank you! I have been reading and rereading both SuperAttactor and The Universe has your back. I actually did these backwards. I am thoroughly involved in setting up a daily practice and I am seeing miracles happen frequently.
    Again Thank you!

    1. There is no wrong order Terry. Trust that you have read them in the order you were meant to. Keep up the great work xo

  4. Hi Gabby,
    Thank you for this post. My daily spiritual practice is similar to yours. I wake up thanking the universe. Then I meditate for 15-20 min.
    Then I set my intentions on how I want to feel in my day.
    In the evenings I also try to meditate, it makes me feel wonderful. And I will also do a few prayers that I have incorporated from your list. I love this way of talking to the universe and surrendering. Thank you for all you do. Love,

    Belle

  5. I feel so much relief since committing to a spiritual practice. I have finally stopped manic manifesting (which I honestly had NO idea I was doing until I read Super Attractor). I step back and let the universe lead the way and I trust all will be well. I know I’m being guided, I can feel the energy, feel the pull. I’ve turned my
    desires over the the care of the universe and I know that what is of the highest good for all will happen. I’m in such a relaxed and peaceful state. When I feel my emotions or ego try to steer me away from this peace I turn to the content in Super Attractor or in the MM. thank you Gabby for paving the way for us. I’m so grateful I had the courage to step out of my comfort zone and open up your book The Universe has your Back 3.5 years ago. ❤️

  6. Miss Gabby Bernstein! Just want to thank you for all you’ve done for me and my twin 🙂 we found your super soul conversation on Oprah’s podcast back in October/December. It has truly changed our lives for the better and we are so grateful for the knowledge and love you endlessly share 🙂

    1. Amazing, John! So grateful that this talk resonated with you! May you both continue to experience miraculous shifts! xoxo

  7. Thank you for sharing this Gabby. I have a lot of great stuff in place (I’m on Day 11 of your 40-day MAY CAUSE MIRACLES course now) and many of your teachers are also mine. You inspire me to more intentionality, ongoing contact/conversation with my inner guidance (you and Marianne Williamson have given me a whole new definition of prayer) and a second meditation late in the day. I’ve shared THE UNIVERSE HAS YOUR BACK with my husband and all my closest friends. It found me at the perfect time. Thanks again. xoxo

    1. You’re welcome, Linda! I’m so glad to hear that my work is resonating with you. May you continue to be guided to the right and perfect resources to support you on your journey. Keep shining your bright light! xoxo
