I only want to see the day ahead,

My attention will not go backward into my history,

And my attention will not go forward into my future.

I am committed to staying only in the present time,

To remaining grounded in my world,

To feeling a bond with each person I meet,

To respecting my own integrity and my own honor,

To living within the energy of love and compassion this day,

And returning to that energy when I don't feel it,

To making wise and blessed choices with my will,

To maintaining perceptions of wisdom and non-judgment,

To release the need to know why things happen the way they do,

And to not project expectations over how I want this day to be —

And how I want others to be.

And finally, my last prayer to trust the Divine.

With that I bless my day with gratitude and love.

As you make an intention to live in the present tense today, focus on your seventh chakra, called the center of your truth and located at the crown of the head, which connects directly to spiritual guidance. Myss suggests that as you move through your day, you remind yourself that your spirit knows only the now. As you travel to work, sit and converse with a friend, enjoy lunch, tell yourself: This is all I have, this is all there is to my life, this is the present moment. Appreciate everything there is to the moment.

The seventh chakra, also known as the crown chakra, is located at the crown of the head, the location of our "soft spot" as an infant. Touch your seventh chakra with holy water, or water that you have prayerfully collected, as you end this prayer with the alternative blessing: "I bless my day with gratitude and love."
