The psychological alarm clock
PostPosted: Fri 26 Sep, 2008  Reply with quote

I'd like at least some of you guys to try this.
Tonight, make a commitment to wake up 30 minutes before your alarm clock is set to go off (keep your alarm clock on in case this doesn't work). Really ingrain it into your mind that you will wake up earlier than normal. I get up at 5am for seminary. I tried this, and I woke up around 4:30am. And I wasn't even tired because I woke up naturally! Give it a go.

Did you repeat it to yourself over and over, or just think really hard? I'd really like to try this.

Repeating it to yourself probably won't make a difference: plus it'll make you're head hurt. A few hours before you go to bed, start thinking about how you're going to try this method. And get really worried that it won't work and you'll be late for work or school or whatever. Get paranoid. Start screaming about how you think you're not gonna make it. Not that that won't make your head hurt either.

Theres a topic about this.

And i do it - it always works. But it turns out you have to be specific.

For example, if you wanted to wake up at half 7..you will wake up between 7.30 to 7.39.

So maybe not the best idea to go '7am' in your head. Its just mantra really. It always works though =D

Hm.. I wake up naturally at 5 am every morning. Maybe this will help me get that extra hour of sleep I so desperately need.

lol I know someone exactly like you, she gets up at 4:30 NATURALLY every morning, including Saturdays. I suppose she just expects herself to get up that early with a mental alarm clock. She goes to my seminary class, and she's never late. She's the most cheerful person there. When you don't wake up to a loud beeping sound, it tones up your mood a bit.

I usually wake up a few minutes before the alarm goes off. I've never made any effort to do so it just happens naturally, probably because I hate waking up to an alarm. ^^

I set my alarm for 5 this morning (yeah, I know it's a Saturday). I forgot about using this method, but I was expecting myself to wake up a 5. I woke up a 4:30 YEAH! boogie
I had better dream recall than usual this morning too. We could use this method to wake up naturally before our alarm goes off, and remember our dreams better. Ever since school started, I've been having to wake up to an alarm, and then my dream recall went down x200.

This often happens me, if I want to (REALLY WANT TO) then I get awake one hour before smile This works better when Im not at home.

Ha ha, getting up for seminary is so fun, isn't it? biggrin I've been pretty worried about waking up on time for the last week, because I have to catch a bus to college, but nearly every morning I woke up about five minutes before my alarm went off; I would guess that has something to do with this kind of thing.

I never put an alaram clock
I dont think getting panicked will help either.
You just have to cooly decide when to wake up. Your body has a clock in it, it will wake you up if youll tell him to, no doubt about it.
Just be sure and confident.
Before I started meditating it wasn't that easy, but after I did, even without thinking about when to wake up, I'll always wake up at the right moment.
Doesnt matter if its 2,5 or 8 hours after I go to bed..
Cheers
Ariel

This happens to me a lot also. I hate waking up to my alarm clock so I consistently wake up ten to twenty minutes before it goes off. No matter what time I set it, I wake up at least ten minutes before it goes off.
