I listened to a YouTube video about 6 months ago. Dr Wayne Dyer talks about what to do 5 minutes before you go to sleep. Click this link to watch. It’s short, just over 6 minutes, and he talks about programming your subconscious mind to focus on positive things while you’re sleeping.
I absolutely love this! It makes so much sense. If you focus on the negative while drifting off to sleep, that’s all your subconscious will be focusing on for the next 6 to 8 hours. That’s horrible. There’s enough negative bullshit in the world already. Why not try to put a positive spin on your thoughts? Let your subconscious ruminate and find all the blessings in your life for those sleeping hours.
I’ve been really trying to change my outlook. I’ve quit watching the news, quit listening to murder mystery podcasts, and only reading and listening to positive things. So I thought I’d give this a try.
Every night before I go to sleep I tell my subconscious to do whatever it needs to do to keep me fit & fabulous until I’m 100 years old and then if it’s got any time left over I need it to remove the sagging skin and excess fat still hanging on 🤗. Can’t hurt right?
Then while I drift off to sleep I repeat a few phrases over and over. For a while, I repeated the sentence, “ I am what and who I want to be.” I would then think of words that started with each letter in what and who. For example: I am Wealthy, Happy, Abundant, Thoughtful, Wise, Healthy, Optimistic.
I recently changed my sentence to “I am thankful” and I am thoughtful, healthy, abundant, nice, kind, fortunate, unique, and loved. The last few nights I’ve actually tried to think of as many words as possible to describe how I want to feel before moving on to the next letter.
I have definitely noticed a change. I wake up in the morning feeling lighter. Don’t know how to really describe it. I see more possibilities now where as before I dreaded what might be. I highly recommend giving this a try. What do you have to lose?
Until next time y’all. Have a flipping amazing day!
