Abraham’s Morning Process
Want to hear a secret? There isn’t a right side and a wrong side of the bed. You know, that thing people talk about when you ask them how their day is going. But there is a feel-good and feel-bad side of the emotional scale. You might call the feel-good side hope, peace, joy, love… These are the party vibes! On the other side you have anger, frustration, depression and other icky emotions. Here again, they form a lump, a big lump of do-not-want. Which side you get out of bed from in the morning may not determine the rest of your day, but which side of the scale you start on definitely can.
Our old friend the law of attraction takes hold of your vibration and brings you circumstances that match it. When you look at them, your vibration gets stronger. This should be yesterday’s news to you. But what you maybe did not know is the following little (huge!) tip courtesy of Abraham. Sleep wipes your emotional slate clean. It frees you from any thought loops of the previous day. That’s why morning time is so precious–it’s the easiest point at which to start new habits of thought! And we like easy.
Ok great. You’re raring to go. You’ve never been this excited to sleep before and and and… Maybe you’ve even turned off the computer and gone straight to Snoresville without finishing the article. Not a good idea if you don’t know how to start a new feel-good pattern of thought. The following is what Abraham recommends. When you wake up, before even going to the bathroom (and potentially getting annoyed that the toothpaste is finished), stay in bed and spend time thinking about those yummy, delicious feelings you can’t get enough of. Choose one, any one on the feel-good side of the scale, and let it seep into your mind and body. Then when you are ready to move on, choose another and do the same and another and so on like you’re at a buffet of good feelings. Do this for 15 minutes and you will be firmly on the feel-good side of the scale when you start the day. That’s where you will stay–it would take a lot to knock you out of balance.
Of course you can always work your way back to a good feeling no matter what, but that’s the whole point. It’s work. And sometimes you get into such a funk that you forget you can even get out of it! This morning process steers you clear of that whole mess. So it’s well worth setting your alarm 15 minutes early for it. If you share a room with someone and want to make sure to get your good feelings in before they start talking, don’t even open your eyes until you’ve gone through the process. One last tip–the best way to make sure you get a good start? Planning for it before you fall asleep. When you get into bed, see yourself doing the morning process when you wake up. Now you have the secret sauce for having a great day and you know it has nothing to do with which side of the bed is softer or which one has better lighting.
