The main focus of the Toltec tradition is to shift your point of creation from your mind to your spirit. We are either creating our reality consciously or habitually. Having a daily routine certain helps us remember to stay conscious.

I used to have a poster that said, “It is hard to remember your initial objective was to drain the swamp when you are up to your ass in alligators.” Changing a habit simply takes practice, the more often we practice the more likely we are to create the results we want.

For years part of my daily routine has been to journal every morning but lately I have let that habit slide. It didn’t take long before I noticed the difference. This morning I sat down and wrote for a few minutes and immediately got clarity about something that has been bothering me.

It always amazes me how easy it is to forget what works and focus on ‘life’ instead. One of the most useful decisions I ever made was to come up with bookends, something I do every morning and every night and to do them on a daily basis. When I stop doing them for whatever reason to recommit and start doing them as soon as possible.

What is your daily routine?

With love and aloha,
