This is designed to be a roughly ten-minute daily morning practice that incorporates an invocation of a personal guide, opening of your energetic being, a grounding, and intention setting. Call in whatever personal guide you which to invoke and feel their presence amplifying your prayers. Speak the italicized portions aloud and then perform the associated energetic movement. I also employ visualizations to strengthen my connection to each statement, as in seeing vibrant scarlet energy swirling into and through me when I call upon the blessings of the Earth. However since colors and other visualizations tend to have personal significance, their choice and use is left up to the individual.
Take three conscious breaths, feeling the physicality of the expansion on the inhales and the contraction on the exhales. Blessed Spirit, I call your name. Silently repeat the name of your invoked spirit three times from the heart on the inhalations and feel the call reverberate internally on the exhalations. Be with me this day as my protector. Feel the presence drawing near during a full breath. Be with me this day as my guide. Feel the presence in your energetic field during a full breath. Be with me this day as my companion. Feel the presence in your body during a full breath. Help me to purify my heart of hardness and resistance. Take three full respirations, inhaling bright energy into the heart and using the exhale to release any obstructions or impurities. Help me to feel the blessings of the Earth. Take three full respirations, using each inhalation to concentrate energy in the root and each exhalation to send the energy down into the Earth. Take three more full respirations, inhaling Earth energy into the crown and exhaling the energy in an internal shower throughout the entire body. Help me to feel the blessings of the Sky. Take three full respirations, using each inhalation to concentrate energy in the crown and each exhalation to send the energy up into the Sky. Take three more full respirations, inhaling Sky energy down about a foot above the crown and exhaling the energy in a shower throughout the energetic body. Help me to express the brilliance of the universal life force that burns within me. Take three full respirations, using each inhale to concentrate and feel the life force in the third chakra and using the first exhalation to direct the energy first into the third chakra, the second exhalation to direct the energy into the physical body, and the third exhalation to direct the energy into the energetic body. Thank you, Blessed Spirit, for being with me in this moment, in this place, and in this life. Take one full breath to feel the divine presence and another to appreciate its willingness to serve. And so it is…
