Welcome to our Miracle Morning Podcast!
As we mention in our conversation. Our advice is not to actually buy the book Miracle Morning in the first instance. You can always buy it later direct from Hal Elrods website (http://www.miraclemorning.com) , it’s also available on popular e-readers and audiobook services too. However, we are big fans of an app called Blinkist – it distils all the good bits of books (just like our podcasts!) so you don’t have to read the whole book. Here’s a handy link – make the most of the free trial, if you’ve many email addresses you can get a few concurrent trials to be sure you want to commit to the subscription https://www.blinkist.com/en/
Ruth mentioned the 6 Minute Miracle Morning – here’s the ‘How To’ extracted from Hal Elrod, the Founder of Miracle Morning http://halelrod.com/6-minute-miracle-morning
The Six Minute Miracle Morning
Minute One… (Silence)
Imagine waking up in the morning, and instead of rushing carelessly into your hectic day—feeling stressed and overwhelmed—imagine that you instead spend the first minute sitting in purposeful Silence. You sit, very calm, very peaceful, and you breathe deeply, slowly. Maybe you say a prayer of gratitude to appreciate the moment, or pray for guidance on your journey. Maybe, you decide to try your first minute of meditation. As you sit in silence, you’re totally present in the now, in the moment. You calm your mind, relax your body, and allow all of your stress to melt away. You develop a deeper sense of peace, purpose, and direction…
Minute Two… (Affirmations)
You pull out your daily Affirmations—the ones that remind you of your unlimited potential and your most important priorities—and you read them out loud from top to bottom. As you focus on what’s most important to you, your level of internal motivation increases. Reading over the reminders of how capable you really are, gives you a feeling of confidence. Looking over what you’re committed to, what your purpose is, and what your goals are re-energizes you to take the actions necessary to live the life you truly want, deserve, and now know is possible for you…
Minute Three… (Visualization)
You close your eyes, or you look at your vision board, and you visualize. Your Visualization could include your goals, what it will look and feel like when you reach them. You visualize the day going perfectly, see yourself enjoying your work, smiling and laughing with your family, or your significant other, and easily accomplishing all that you intend to accomplish for that day. You see what it will look like, you feel what it will feel like, and you experience the joy of what you will create…
Minute Four… (Scribing)
Imagine, pull out your journal, and in your journal, you take a minute to write down what you’re grateful for, what you’re proud, and the results you’re committed to creating for that day. Doing so, you put yourself in an empowered, an inspired, and confident state of mind.
Minute Five… (Reading)
Then, you grab your self-help book and invest one miraculous minute reading a page or two. You learn a new idea, something that you can implement into your day. You discover something new that you can use to feel better—to be better.
Minute Six… (Exercise)
Finally, you stand up and you spend the last minute, doing jumping jacks for 60 seconds and getting your heart rate up and getting energized and waking yourself up and increasing your ability to be alert and to focus.
When discussing the difference between incantations and affirmations, Ruth and Jonny refer to two great poems they use for inspiration;
Jonny also mentioned Geoff Bridges sleep album and a particular track of him saying nice things, it’s here, track number 13.
