How To Make The Most Out Of That Magic Hour
There is that magic hour right before dawn breaks and the sky turns a beautiful orange hue. The stillness is palpable as the sky turns one shade lighter after another. As if the darkness that enveloped the night sky was but a fading dream. If you pay attention, you can feel the energy in the air. It is rich and buzzing with the potential of the coming day. It’s the magic hour as vibrations are high. The birth of a new day.
There’s no better time to be reflective. Write down your stream of consciousness in longhand.
Don’t edit and don’t filter. In doing this, you get your subconscious thoughts out of your head and onto paper. Don’t be surprised if a sudden burst of creativity pops up this way. Creativity often lies buried under a muck of tiresome thoughts that can make up your day-to-day. Be still. When water is calm, then you see your reflection. Taking time out to clear your mind of all those mundane thoughts allows you to access a deeper level of yourself. This is your inner being, your true self. The same self that pervades all things. Watch how you feel when you let your body be. If you feel emotion, then it’s a sign that your body is in need of healing. Your body is in its natural state when you feel a bubble of joy, a giggle and happiness, however faint.
Move your body in a way that pleases you. Start with gentle movements, inviting the earth’s morning energy into your system.
What better time to set your goals for the day than when the world is just waking up. There’s something about the stillness that brings calm to the mind and also powerfully backs up your intentions with the force of the universe.
I think this is the secret to many a man’s success. Starting early before their comrades are even awake. This gives you a head start to your projects, and a very resolute one at that. The peace in the morning provides the space for additional insight that may be lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I know what you’re thinking. It’s too early! I thought the same way. I was a night owl for many years. I didn’t do anything drastic. I just let myself wake up 15 minutes earlier every day. Since I enjoyed my time alone, it started becoming easier for me to do. Pretty soon, I was waking up a whole hour earlier, and then even earlier than that.
