WJKK WJKF

I am having issues with my amritvela.

These are the issues that happen:

Alarm goes off (I wake up to AK47 Wale, the gun shots at the start on max volume) so when I wake up I immediately turn it off so I don't get a heart attack. 

I check what time it is and it is 3 A.M, and I ask myself am I ready for amritvela today and if it's a yes I will literally fall back asleep without knowing, it literally just happens.

OR

I will wake up and then I ask myself do I feel like doing paath today (which is a sin for me because you should always do it) and then I fall asleep.

Any tips?

Thanks

For one wake up to gurbani, it's too early to be listening to loud music lol..

Secondly daas personally uses Sleepyti.me (for finding a sleep schedule), then find a solid time that allows you to get in 6 solid sleep cycles, sleep at that time. Now this one is hard for many, make it permanent. Say you want to wake at 2am and the website says to sleep at 7:30pm, sleep and rise on those times every single day (weekend or weekday).

As for pushing yourself to get out of bed, first and foremost get awake and do a jakara at the top of your lungs, if you live alone, if not go outside and run until you sweat (you can question my methods, but not my results; so trust me). Another thing cut out junk in your diet (try to eat clean, so you won't feel lethargic). Working out hard will also help.

Some more tips

-As soon as your done with your run (or jakara) make your bed; this will instill some discipline and give you a sense of accomplishment, plus you'll be less likely to jump in if you know that you just fixed it.

-Before you go to sleep, don't use your phone for 1 hour

-Throw your blanket or rajaee off and jump out of bed

-Make getting out of bed fun, this one is up to you.. but daas starts busting out push-ups when I rise

 

NOTE: even if you get late for one night, still wake up at 2 no matter what; also when I said make your bed I mean bedsheets and all, not just covers. 

 

These were just my tips you don't have to use them, but you are more then welcome to try it..

That will literally break my throat lol

But I think I will just go downstairs and stick my face in the freezer, probably won't have the the urge to sleep then.

So now the only issue is me trying to get back into that game of amritvela, i feel that it has no importance anymore but when i do not do it then i feel sooooo guilty.

It's all about habit, if you pertend like your awake, you'll feel more awake. If it's cold just start exercising warm, make yourself sweat.. 

 These things work for me, I'm just putting in my 2 cents

The jakara is for raising up your energy lol not to destroy your lungs 😂😂

Could you elaborate on the second part not sure I get it lol

Try to get a good amount of sleep; if you want Amrit vela badly it could mean sleeping at 7 (if you're willing to do it)

Yes, I guess discipline is the key. It's good you are able to use this technique.

The main challenge is getting out of bed. If you can do that, it's a lot easier. Sticking your phone on the other side of the room so you have to get out of bed to turn it off. Someone i knew used to drink a pint of water before bed. When they woke up, they would be bursting for the loo so they had to get out .

Once you develop a routine, it becomes a lot easier. It's much harder to initiate change than to maintain it.

In order to make it a habit, you dont have to force yourself up at 3.a.m.

What time can you naturally wake up. For a start, try to connect with your nitnem at any time. If you can waake up at 4, 5 or 6 do that. Slowly bring thei time down by 15 minutes. 

This will give you time to connect with your nitnem - which means you will miss something, when you dont do it. Bringing the time forwards slowly give allow you to adjust your time gradually.

Amritvela at 4 A.M is good too, right?

If I don't wake up at 3 A.M, it's like Waheguru is giving me a second chance to do it at 4 A.M.

Sometimes for me, I don't even recognize Amritvela passed, (I don't recommend alarm). So sometimes, I ask more times, (to Vaheguru), to wake-me at Amritvela. But later is better than not at all.

    • Its not just him. One of the most ridiculous notions peddled by the left is that ALL of the far right are idiots who can't tell the difference. The reality is something completely different. People like Ben Shapiro and Milo Yiannopoulos, both of whom have a respectable number of followers remind people of this whenever there is an attack as the media paints us with the same brush as the terrorists.  Most of the big Right wing "preachers" i guess is an accurate term, know the difference and tend to cite it always.
    • Don't worry about not having a spiritual experience. The main thing is you don't divert from God's name. You don't want to get into ego from experiences either.  All people are not the same, an experience to one person may not be the same as another, however large or small it maybe. We should bear in mind, that we do not recite God's name for experiences, but to think of it as our duty and love towards them. If we start to ask for experiences, then we have forgotten what our goal is.  It is up to Waheguru to grace somebody with an experience. It can happen how much more or less time on one spends on Simran, than another. Do not compare yourself to others, an experience will happen in Waheguru's Hukam, not by anybody saying how or when.  Its good to increase Simran, Gurbani if you wish to and spending more time to devote yourself towards it, will never be incomplete of anything. But we must focus on doing Simran and not expect anything back in return. Just leave that to God to decide.  Say if somebody has an experience, does it necessarily mean it has to be a physical one or that is visible? And then what after that?  Doing Simran, reciting/listening to  Gurbani is an experience in itself. We are here in this world for this experience of having the opportunity to, that is also an experience we should be grateful for. But we forget God is everywhere.  ਤੂੰ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਭਰਿਪੁਰਿ ਲੀਣਾ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਸਰਬ ਸਮਾਣਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ 
      तूं जलि थलि महीअलि भरिपुरि लीणा तूं आपे सरब समाणा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ 
      Ŧūʼn jal thal mahī▫al bẖaripur līṇā ṯūʼn āpe sarab samāṇā. ||1|| rahā▫o. 
      Thou art fully contained in water, dry land nether and upper regions. Thou Thyself art pervading everywhere. Pause. 
      SGGS ji Ang 731 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji   I understand that you maybe desiring for an experience to feel the presence of God for yourself, but just remind yourself they are everywhere. When we do Simran with love for God, then we'll start to feel the anand (bliss) of it, when God graces us with it.   
    • Apart from the ignorant British attacking a Sikh wearing a turban (which I hear is very rare, I'm Canadian/American btw), I doubt that the British people will target Sikhs. Instead, what they will do is far worse, they will use our history with the Muslims to incite us and basically use us as fodder as they did in their Raj, though this time, it'll be purely against the Muslims. 
    • It is going to be of no use to you to know how much simran to do. You simply have to arrange time for yourself. .. approximately 2 hours 40 minutes everyday. One tenth of your time everyday to Devote to simran. It is a blessing from God if one is able to put in this amount of time.  Pichle janam dhi kamayi counts as well greatly. God has preselected exactly whom he would like to have these experiences.  If you have these experiences, then you have to learn to not spread them about and you will have more. There are many more things that come to pass... we are spiritual beings suffering from separation from our creator. Reconnection is going to occur slowly and understanding these experiences comes slowly too. As you keep your simran up, you are able to obtain great amounts of happiness and peace from it. So forming a habit of simran should be done as a conscious effort.
