4 Tips To Start Your Day In A Blissful State Of Mind

How you wake up in the morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.Does a typical day for you start by waking up 30 minutes late after you hit the snooze button one too many times, rushing around the house, sipping your coffee, ironing your clothes before racing out the door with your burnt toast in your hands or do you wake up, meditate, go for a run, and eat a healthy breakfast before heading out the door right on time.

If we begin the day feeling frustrated and tired chances are the day will continue in the same way. How would you like to wake up every day feeling ecstatic?

I want to share with you the best morning ritual I have ever encountered, guaranteed to make you feel ready for anything. If you don’t believe me I implore you to give it a go for the next 7 days.

 

Step 1: Choose 3 songs that you love to listen to

The first song is your gratitude song – all of the things you are grateful for in life; the second song is your power song that energises you and gives you a mini workout at the same time; lastly, the third song is your spiritual song. This song is representative of who you are as a person and the goals you want to achieve in life.

“Gratitude opens the door to… the power, the wisdom, the creativity of the universe. You open the door through gratitude”. – Deepak Chopra

Step 2: Write down negative beliefs

Once you have chosen your three songs. The next step is to think of six negative beliefs you have about yourself. By asking yourself the following questions you will be able to ascertain your current negative beliefs that are holding you back.

What do you beat yourself up about? What is a problem in your life that you want to solve? Are you having trouble believing in yourself to achieve a goal? What is an obstacle you are facing at present?

Write down on a piece of paper the six negative beliefs you have about yourself that are holding you back from achieving your goals and that you would like to change.

 

Step 3: Change the negatives to positives

Rearrange your negative beliefs in order of importance from one to six, starting with the belief you would most like to change. The next step involves changing each of those negative beliefs into a positive belief. Write down all of your positive beliefs on a new piece of paper.

Then burn the piece of paper with the negative beliefs on it. Burning is a powerful release ritual that has been used for centuries. The idea of burning your negative beliefs is that it is a representation of what you wish to release from your life. You are burning what you want to let go of from the past in order for you to move forward and create a brighter future.

Change your thoughts

Step 4: Every morning play the 3 songs in the following order – gratitude, power and spiritual song

During the gratitude song, think of everything you are grateful for in your entire life; people, places, animals, nature, your home, family,  or car. Absolutely everything you can think of.

Now for the fun part, during the power song, dance and jump around saying the positive beliefs you wrote down continuously until the end of the song. The idea is for the positive beliefs to get into your body. For you to really feel the words that you are speaking so they are ingrained into your being.

During the last song – the spiritual song, this is your time for future pacing. Visualise all of your dreams coming true as though they are real right here and now. Visualize the sounds, smells, tastes and most importantly feel how you will feel when they come true. Creating the emotion you will feel and visualizing every detail of your dream is the most important element of future pacing.

“Future pacing allows a person to see, hear, feel and experience what they would like to manifest through experiencing it, it imprints itself within the subconscious mind” – Donald Currie

This is definitely the best morning ritual in the world. It is guaranteed to make you feel truly alive which creates a feeling of ecstasy – it is simply the best way to start your day.

    Hi Angelina,

    Thank you for this post.

    I heard from many different morning routines, but incorporating songs and even short dancing can be really powerful.

    Songs are very personal, but can you recommend some?

    I am sending you a spiritual song Wild Roses- There is a place.

    Thank you,

    Esther

    Always start your day positive, whether listening to powerful songs or reading powerful books, it is better to do this than reading a newspaper, starting your with bad news will ruin your day. I like this idea i think music can boost your drive to achieve your goals

    I’ve been a strong believer in a positive attitude can change a negative day. Even if the events of your day aren’t going quite the way you would like, if you keep your mind focused on the positive, it’ll change your day. I’m interested in trying the 3 songs in the morning, might make for a great listen on the way to work in the morning! 🙂

    You are absolutely right. When you wake up and the entire morning you are frustrated and tired, your entire day will be like that. The most successful people have rituals that they do in the morning and many of them wake up REALLY early to do their entire ritual before their day gets started. They know that how they feel, will make them productive or unproductive. This is a great post and I will definitely try out this ritual in my mornings. I am always looking for new things that will help me be more productive!

The Real Reason You’re Not Living the Life of Your Dreams

this is why you're not living your dreams

In August of 2018, I was sitting on the couch and complaining to my wife. The Oregon fires had caused a summer of smoke which meant we weren’t spending much time outside due to our one-year old daughter and my wife’s asthma. My waistline was slowly expanding and I was growing tired of living in the same place for over 25 years (my wife and I had settled down in the town where we grew up; a southern Oregon city of about 40,000 people). To make it worse, we had visited Cairns, Australia in May of 2018, which made our antsy desire to do something else with our lives even more unbearable. We couldn’t stop day-dreaming about travelling the world! (more…)

Your Enthusiasm Will Make A Difference

I have read Dr. Peale’s book “Enthusiasm Make The Difference.” As a matter of fact, I have read a few of his books. All of them are good reads. I love the examples and stories of his patients and clients in a world so far different than ours today. The stories are pre-internet days. Pre-everything days really. Some say it was much simpler then, than now. To a certain extent, I agree with those people. Life has sped up. (more…)
