Rise and Shine

“Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”

Ben Franklin

The first thing you can do to begin to live a more creative life, is to make a point of waking up early every single morning, and designating that time as time for you to connect with Spirit.

The early morning hours are the best time to connect with Spirit, because in this society it is extremely difficult to be able to find free, quiet, solitary time, in the course of a day, because of the rather busy and demanding lifestyle that we live here in America. Therefore, the only real time that you can find for solitary spiritual practice is in the morning. Contrary to what many secular spiritual teachers in the West advocate, I don’t believe that the average American has time for spiritual practice in the morning and in the evening. It is more realistic, given the hectic nature of this society, for one to make the sacrifice of one or two hours of sleep and in its place insert some form of spiritual training in that time slot. For instance, I like to wake up at 5am every morning, and practice two to three hours of meditation before I begin to engage any of my other daily responsibilities. In my case, that primarily means devoting time to reading and writing, that I may expand the vocabulary through which I convey my message, and continuously sharpen my craft of conveying this message. In your case, your daily responsibilities may include dropping your children off to school, or going to work for eight hours each day. Whatever it is you do with your daily responsibilities, including mothering, fathering, the workday, meetings, and so on, all of these activities will be greatly enhanced by this morning time that you have set aside for spiritual connection.

The law of attraction, which I will talk about in greater detail later, suggests that each of us operates like a magnet. Just as a magnet has a magnetic field that draws into it objects based on the frequency of the object, so it is with us. We draw to us objects that vibrate at the same frequency at which our thoughts vibrate. So, positive thoughts, which are really just high frequency thoughts, attract to us experiences like prosperity and love, whereas negative thoughts, which are really just, low frequency thoughts, attract to us experience such as poverty and lack. So, what this means is that it is vitally important that we take time each day to tune up our magnet so that we are vibrating at a high frequency, and therefore attracting to ourselves the most positive experiences. Meditation is one of the best ways known to humankind of how we can charge up our magnet to the highest frequency, and it is the early morning hours that offer the greatest opportunity for silence and meditation.

  1. (I posted this yesterday but it did not show up. So here it goes again…)
    You say:

    If you truly believe in the Law Of Attraction, then whatever you are expeiencing in your life you are inviting in with your vibration. So if you are experiencing the lack of “free, quiet, solitary time, in the course of a day” then that is the tone you are setting and not because of the “busy and demanding lifestyle that we live here in America.”

    That is certainly not my experience and I do live here in America. And I am not at all interested in taking on the belief that “the only real time that you can find for solitary spiritual practice is in the morning.” I thought that I get to decide how my life creates! ;^)

    It could be more effective to express that this method of early morning spiritual practice has worked for you, and may be something that your readers could try, rather than implying that it is the only way that works.

    Personally, I really love the late night hours for creating, meditating, and setting my vibration. I am not an early morning person, so what works for you is not my preference. I am glad that you have found what works so well for you, but please don’t imply that any other time to meditate is less valuable. It is simply different for different people. The contrast is what makes this world so interesting!

  5. It is unrealistic for many to meditate for 2 or 3 hrs, PLUS not needed, it is not about the amount of time you meditate for but more about the quality of time you meditated for, some people truley believe meditation is about just relaxing and escaping from reality, this couldnt be further from the truth, real valuable meditation is about being completely relaxed and yet completely alert and grounded, aware of everything within and around you. People just sitting and feeling drousy for 2 or 3 hrs is unproductive and a complete waste of time, you may aswell get sleep instead!
