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.

I do rehras sahib and kirtan sohila everyday but my morning nitnem is always incomplete :'(. I do japji sahib ok but by the time i get half way through jaap sahib i just can't carry on my attention span is SOOOO short!!! I end up giving up half way through jaap sahib. My attention span is like this always I can't sit and do one thing for a long time :'( it's really getting me down now as i want to do my panj baniyan and every morning i sit down and think today is the day but it never happens and its been a few months now. I keep thinking it will get better as i get used to it and i go to bed pumping myself but always fail  please help with tips!!!

    •   “It is amazing how people everywhere hold the same false beliefs and hear the same destructive voices in our heads. We can call that the lower self. That in itself shows that we are all basically one consciousness, albeit based in physicality and duality. But to the bright side, there is also a higher consciousness, a Oneness, we share. We can wake up to that lower self, see that it has never served or protected us, and let go... into the Silence and Stillness where there already exists the freedom and peace we long for.”  
    •   ENLIGHTENMENT   "Enlightenment or true spiritual growth, can be achieved only through persistent exercise of real love.”   *And the persistent excercise of real love, is the only one we offer to our beloved Wahiguru Akal Purukh, through Bhakti. There are many types of love in different relationships, but He being the embodiment of supreme Truth, is the only One Being(Ik Oankar), worthy of all our unconditional love, and more, and more, and more love, without reservations.
