I always seem to wake at 5am, sometimes much earlier, naturally.
I used to turn over and go back to sleep but some months ago I chose to actually get up.
I love the peace, the energy and the anticipation of a new day. It is a wonderful time to connect with yourself; your feelings, your heart and soul, your truth and your desires. I LOVE spending this time with myself in different ways; meditation, journalling my thoughts and emotions, BIG goals and daily intention setting, writing my blog, or running or yoga. In short, achieving things I deem CRITICAL to my ULTIMATE SUCCESS, BEFORE the world (or at least my household!) awake.
But it isn’t always easy. In fact sometimes its is down right hard. In fact most days there is a conversation to be had in my head:
I could go back to sleep. No one else will mind/notice/care if I do or if I don’t achieve these or even write my blog.
That may or may not be true. BUT I DO. I mind, i notice and I CARE.
Remind me again why? Because right now I could drift back off to sleep. I FEEL KNACKERED. And surely I can’t be productive when I feel like this?
Yes and occasionally that maybe to right thing to do. But let me ask you this…. HOW would you feel if you MISS this sacred time for yourself today?
I would feel as if I were playing catch-up all day. I would end up getting pulled into busy-ness and stuff and not focussing on what REALLY MATTERS. I would end up being irritable with my family or resenting what needs to be done. The things I love to do can suddenly seem like a struggle and I lack inspiration and passion.
I would feel LESS energised and motivated because this time to myself and my dreams FUELS me.
But feeling tired makes me lack inspiration and passion or less energised and motivated to do what lights me up.
That’s a choice. What do you need to do to feel the energy you gain from getting up early?
Get up early!
So are you getting up?
Even then it can still feel as though I am dragging myself out of the bed. That’s when I notice that FEAR is creeping in…..
What if I WASTE this time? What if I DON’T know WHAT steps to take to know HOW to make my big goals happen? What if I am tired all day that I end up grinding to a halt? It will all be a waste of TIME. I HATE WASTING TIME!
Yes being EFFECTIVE is key to success but when we are NOT in a sate of being or mindset to match the energy required we need to GET YOURSELF INTO A STATE TO MATCH!
Oh yes! How do I do that again? Did I say I FEEL KNACKERED?
Good! Always start with how you’re feeling acknowledge and release those emotions. Only then think about how do you want to feel. What would you be doing if you were in a HIGH VIBE? How would you Look? Stand? Speak? Write? What do you KNOW to do that gets you into that state…..
Move your body! Tune into your heart and wisdom (like you’re doing now btw!). Listen to some music that lights you up. Read something inspirational. Practise Emotional Expression techniques or forgiveness or meditation. START writing your dreams, your goals, your desires. Start creating something without judgement of the result. DO what lights you up!
BUT this wasn’t meant to be a message about getting up early.
This is a message about what is stopping you, or how YOU ARE STOPPING YOU, from achieving your goals.
This is a message about CULTIVATING SELF-BELIEF.
This is a message about DOING WHAT YOU LOVE.
This is a message about WHO YOU NEED TO BE to MAKE YOUR DREAMS YOUR REALITY.
This is a message about DELIBERATELY CREATING A LIFE YOU LOVE.
It’s all about cultivating the ENERGY in order to take ACTION. OR taking ACTION to cultivate the ENERGY!
Yes more sleep can give you energy but so does PURPOSE and PASSION and FLOW by FOCUSSING on and having MORE TIME to actually DO, what really matters to YOU!
From this place you will start to FEEL therefore BELIEVE that you really can HAVE IT ALL!
You need to start EVERY DAY focussing on what you ULTIMATELY want to create.
Understand what gives you energy. Understand what lights you up. Understand what you want and why. Understand who you need to be. Understand what you need to believe.
This awareness is a powerful combination for you to ALIGN yourself with your goals. You will know that you are then capable of achieving anything and everything you set your heart and intentions on.
If that means getting up early for you then it’s worth it right?
