My 4 step Nightly Routine

With two kids in the house, my spiritual routine is generally my nightly routine. (I’m working on a morning routine)

What do you do before bed? Do you just fall into bed after you’ve dozed off on the couch or do you meditate and use angel cards? What you do before bed or as soon as you get up makes all the difference in your life!

Nightly routine includes:

  1. Meditate
  2. Draw cards
  3. Journal
  4. Visualize while laying in bed, and say a little prayer

Meditate

Every night I sit on my cushion to meditate. I enjoy a few different guided meditations or sometimes I’ll use a kundalini meditation, Sa Ta Na Ma.

Draw my Daily Angel Cards

I enjoy drawing cards each day. It’s my way to connect with my angels and to my inner self.

Journal

Once I’ve drawn my cards, I begin to journal. I start with the cards I received and what those cards mean. Then move on to other things that come up that I need to work through. I enjoy this time because I can include so many insights.

Visualize and say a little prayer

I’ve done the previous 3, brushed my teeth, turned my phone off, gotten under the covers. Now it’s time for the last steps. I visualize a white light shining out the top of my head. While this white light is glowing, I say a little prayer something along these lines:

Dear Universe and Angels, Please let me remember my dreams. Please let me recieve any messages that I need right now. Thankyou.

This routine helps me to fall asleep much easier. Also note, that I said I turned my phone off! This is a recent change and I think it helps so much. Especially in the mornings. I am less tempted to wake up to see what time it is on my phone and just go right on to checking emails before my feet have touched the floor. Now I don’t worry about my phone until after we have all gotten up and gotten breakfast.


All four steps don’t happen every night, but when it’s been a few days I can tell because I feel unsettled and disconnected. When I feel that, I know that it’s time to go to my office, sit down and meditate. It always makes me feel better.

Why I’m Passionate About Angels

The idea of angels and angel cards was intriguing to me when I bought my first pack in April. I don’t think I really believed in the spiritual side at that time, but I knew that the messages I needed came up right away.

For a while, I did readings for myself almost daily. I loved it. I still love doing readings for myself. I didn’t know much about angels, or what resources to use, or why I was using the deck that I was using.

So when the chance to learn more through a certification course came up, I jumped on it. I thought that I would learn a few things for my own readings, I never thought that I would be reading others. But when I found out that in order to complete the course, I had to do readings for 10 other people, I knew that I had to. And when I had done only a few other readings, I loved it! I knew that this was something I wanted to continue to do.

Best of all, I learned how to take care of my energy. I learned that I could call on Angels to protect myself, to boost my energy and to grow. I have always struggled with keeping my own energy and not letting the energies of others affect me. For the first time in my life, I felt like I was learning how to take care of myself properly. When we went over how to disconnect from the people we do readings on at the end of the session, I felt a huge wave of relief. This resonates with me so much because I have been given advice so many times on how to keep my energy. “Just let it go” “Don’t let it get to you.” – etc. None of it has resonated with me until now. Connecting with angels has changed my world.

When I get tired but still have hours left in the day, I ask for help. When I’m around too many people or someone with a negative attitude, I ask for help. When I feel lost, or confused, or upset, I ask for help. I ask the angels for help. Sometimes I need my cards to get the message and sometimes the message just comes to me in the moment.

I am still learning more about this area, but this is something that has changed my life and will stick with me forever.
