INSIDE: Are you looking for some new morning rituals to ignite your passion and start your day off on the right foot? That's what this article is all about! Read on and comment with your favorite morning rituals.
As our lives get more hectic, we're all waking up to the importance of starting our day with the right frame of mind.
Whether its light stretches coupled with meditation, eating a healthy breakfast, or just taking a few deep breaths, it's important to try different routines to start our day in the best way possible.
Apart from getting our zen on, we can start our day right by incorporating various rituals into our morning routine.
Morning rituals can consist of a lot of practices, and we can choose the ones that work best for us and our schedule, while being as elaborate or as basic as we want them to be.
Including crystals in our morning ritual practices can amplify their effects and allow us to carry their beautiful energy throughout the day.
Following are some of the easiest morning ritual ideas to get your spiritual groove on!
The Sun, the Outdoors, and the Morning Air
Coffee is a great way to wake up and get ourselves ready to go, but stepping outside and soaking in the morning sun can give us this much needed boost as well.
The morning sun is easy on the eyes, while giving us a dose of Vitamin D, which is integral to maintaining good mental and physical health.
On the mystical side, the sun can infuse us with the universal life energy, setting us off to a great start for the day ahead.
If that wasn’t enough, the clear morning air is sure to pump us up and get us excited for the day ahead, making it an excellent practice to include in our morning rituals.
Yoga, Stretching & Meditation
Another great way to set ourselves up for success is to meditate, engage in stretching and light exercises, or do yoga.
While meditation will give us the clarity and resilience we need to go through any chaotic work-day, stretching and yoga can help us be fit and healthy, aligning mind, body and spirit to the intention we set for the day.
A quick 10 to 15 minute yoga and meditation practice with crystals can be a great way to start off our morning rituals, setting us up to harness the benefits of the crystal ritual in the best way possible.
Taking a shower can soothe us, while giving us that healthy jolt of energy in the morning. It is also an excellent way to cleanse and purify our mind, body, and energy.
A shower can be a ritualistic experience, even when we are just taking a quick one. It prepares us for our main morning rituals, while helping us step into the energy we aim to nurture throughout the day.
Morning Rituals With Crystals
Working with crystals is one of the easiest ways to connect with the energy of nature and Mother Earth.
Collected from the depths of the earth, crystals carry the vital energy of Mother Nature, and each are unique in their own way, bringing subtle yet potent energies with them.
Morning rituals with crystals don’t need to take up too much of our time. They can easily be incorporated into our busy schedules and even enhanced with the meditative practices of a morning ritual.
Once we are grounded and have cleansed our energetic space, we can choose a crystal to meditate with, setting our intention for the day.
There is no right or wrong way to choose a crystal for our morning ritual. We can choose one according to:
- The intention we want to set for the day
- The energy we wish to harness
- What we are led intuitively in the current moment
While choosing crystals with specific energies and intentions in mind for our crystal ritual, some of the versatile crystals mentioned below are worth taking note of.
Red Jasper for Motivation & Stamina
Red Jasper is known for its grounding energy that promotes endurance, while boosting confidence and stamina. It's just what we need to get through those endless work hours.
It’s also known to charge us up energetically, and enhance focus and willpower.
Working with Red Jasper during our morning rituals is a great way to ensure we successfully cruise through the work-day.
Bloodstone for Health & Vitality
Bloodstone has been used throughout the ages for its restorative and grounding properties. It has long been believed to promote good health and vitality, boosting physical energy levels in the body.
It’s a great stone to help us get out of stagnant energies and overcome a lack of direction or fatigue. Like Red Jasper, Bloodstone is a great crystal to help us hit the ground running.
Pyrite for Wealth
Often called “Fool’s Gold”, Pyrite is most commonly used to attract abundance in all forms, including material wealth.
It’s also a grounding stone, promoting clarity and optimism, protecting us from negative energy, and helping us maintain the balance of power in our relationships with others.

Black Tourmaline for Protection & Grounding
Black Tourmaline is one of the most widely used and highly effective crystals for grounding and protection. It’s known to provide aura protection from the negativity around us and projected towards us.
It also protects us from negativity that stems from within, dispelling negative thoughts and emotion and helping us to stay grounded through chaotic and stressful times.
Black Tourmaline is great for setting up an energetic shield around us, especially when we have to be around people who are draining or who harbor ill intentions towards us.
Clear Quartz for Clarity & Intention
Clear Quartz is a versatile crystal that works to amplify our intentions, and it can also increase the potency of any other crystal it’s used with.
It’s one of those crystals we should always carry with us, as it can catapult the manifestation of any intention we set our minds on.
Clear quartz is also unsurprisingly brilliant at promoting clarity of thought and intention, helping us move towards our purpose with a crystal clear focus.
Not only can a Clear Quartz be used to set our intentions, it is also one of the best meditation crystals, as it will help us gain clarity.
Final Thoughts About Morning Rituals With Crystals
Although the crystals mentioned here are some of the most widely used crystals and we can draw upon their energy at any time, there are hundreds of crystals with their own unique energetic footprint that can help us in our journey. It all depends on the areas we need to work on or wish to build on.
One of our favorite morning rituals is to meditate with crystals, with the sole intention to allow the crystal to show us the areas we should be working on in the present moment.
It’s worth noting that almost all crystals have multiple properties and energies that they radiate, and how they help us depends on our current energy as well.
