Mischievous Mind

My subconscious mind seems to have developed an ornery sense of humor. Every day for the past week or so, sometime between 6:00 and 6:50, it convinces me that I slept through the alarm. So I wake up all adrenalized and look at the clock. My alarm is set for 7:00. Haha, very funny subconscious mind.

  1. grrrrrrr

    don’t cha hate that … stealing away those last precious moments of dream time… as if waking up to an alarm isn’t stressful enough. I’m very lucky in that most days I wake on my own, just after stirring naturally. What a luxury that is 🙂 one that I appreciate each & every day. Ahhh, no alarms 🙂 yay!!! 🙂

  2. I do this! It’s a game I play with myself everyday. I set two alarms. One for 5, just so I can turn it off and go back to sleep and then the other for 6.
    Which I try to squeeze atleast two snoozes off of =)

  3. ahh, quitchyerbitchin’ and be grateful that you sleep so soundly that you require an alarm to awaken…..everyone I know, including myself are like zombies already due to disturbed sleep from all those energy influxes….aiyeeeeee! 🙂

  4. If I could stay asleep, I’d dream of sleep…

    My alarm is also set for 7, as is my coffeemaker. However, the birds are waking pre-dawn, I think they wake my housemate’s cat, because lately she has to come in and wake me as soon as the sun cracks the horizon (we’re on a hill so that is about 5:30 or so. So I get to see the pretty colors of sunrise as she plunks herself half on the bed, half on the windowsill as I desperately try to go back to sleep…by the time I am drifting off, its time to get up, Or at least its time to stop ignoring the cat, have our 10-15 minute cuddle before she acts indignant that I am disturbing her nap with my rising from bed. We had some heat and humidity so the waking began at 4 or 4:30….ugh.

  5. your subconscious is getting a message from the Divine- and it’s smart enough to know that the only way to get you to get up is to play a little trick! yeaaah, feel the inspired vibes to meditate! This gives me an idea, I would like my subconscious to make me get up at 4:30- the morning hours are sacred!

  6. 3:00 AM is a powerful time for meditation. When I was in Nepal staying at a retreat center, many of the practitioners would wake up at 3 to begin one of four meditation sessions for the day. It is difficult to start so early if you are not in retreat full-time but, it can be done if you are diligent about getting to bed early. My eyes start to get raspy as the work day wears on if I don’t get enough sleep. Anyhow, the more inspired time spent in meditation, the better.

  7. I do that too for long periods at a time. When i do I’m usually having a very meaningfiul dream time. I like waking during these and contemplating them,
