Waking Up As If

Waking Up As IfYou know how after something big has happened in your life, when you wake up the next day it takes a minute to get used to the idea?

Sometimes it even takes longer than that to get used to the change?

Like after you quit your job, when you wake up on Monday, it’s sort of a surprise to remember you don’t have to go to work.

Or when you get married, it takes a minute for it to sink in that you are a wife now. Your name is Mrs. somebody!

Or after you move,Β when you first wake up in the new place you’re like, “wait, where am I?” Oh yeah, that’s right, I live here now.

Even after the calendar turned, it took a couple days to remember it’s 2015, didn’t it?

Okay, so I’ve been using those early morning moments to remind myself something that instantly changes the tone of the day.

I remember that all my dreams have already come true.

There’s nothing I have to work on today.
There’s nothing I’m waiting on to happen.
There’s nothing to reach for.

It’s all already happened.

All my dreams have come true.

I have every reason to feel satisfied and fulfilled.

Because it already happened. (Even when I’m not exactly sure what happened, just knowing that it already has shifts my vibration.)

Can you feel how an identity shift like this creates vibrational alignment to whatever we want to manifest?

I’m finding it a powerful ticket to “wake up as if.”

When my gremlin mind pops in with any negative input, I just conjure evidence to support the thought.

After all, lots of dreams have come true in my life – I don’t wake up to an alarm, I get to stay at home with the dogs all day, the money situation is well in hand, there is no man I have to answer to, I’ve got a gorgeous view of this beautiful world and I have an amazing life. So shush it, gremlin.

Which means when I get out of bed in the morning, I’m starting the day as the girl who got what she wanted.

When I do this I notice there’s less striving, less urgency to my morning. Less “should dos” and more “what would be funs.”

I feel like the cheshire cat, wearing a delighted smile and not wanting for a single thing.

All there is left to do is live happily ever after.

Which doesn’t mean I don’t do anything that day.

It just means everything I engage is with a higher vibration – the energy of satisfaction and fulfillment.

Kind of a cool thing to remember. πŸ™‚

    Such an inspiring post! Its important to deal with life’s problems but it is also important to relax your mind. Acting and waking as if can really help with that.

  • Karen says:

    After reading this yesterday, I woke up this morning and started wondering – why am I still thinking and acting like I’m waiting for something? IT’S already here! I’m already here! There is no use looking back over my shoulder to see if I missed something or looking ahead to see when it’s coming. It’s here! All day I’ve been thinking that way, just working on those delicious details of happily ever after.

  • Matt says:

    Really needed this today – I’ve had a couple of low vibrational days where I’m struggling, so I’m going to try this first thing!

  • Practically Always Pollyanna says:

    Great post and something that can easily be incorporated into the morning, even with kids jumping on the bed!

  • How funny, Lizette! And woo hoo for things manifesting like crazy!
    Katy, I like your practice. Thanks for sharing the link with us. πŸ™‚

  • Katy says:

    This is so fun when I get ‘re-affirmed’ with what I am doing by seeing it elsewhere popping up for me! This post is one of those things! πŸ™‚ I started about a week ago…telling myself BEFORE I go to sleep..that I want to wake and stay in bed and do my ‘feel good’ rampage before my feet hit the floor. It’s been working and I haven’t forgotten. I am simply reaching for some basics that feel good, including some fun appreciation…but this morning I tried something different and turned on one of my fav Abe videos
    http://youtu.be/T4IkbcnaeOE and start listening at the 8:30 minute mark…I listen for a few min with my Iphone or Ipad and earphones…and it REALLY helps set a wonderful tone for me -…(Hope putting link was ok- it’s called “Best Self Talk To God Ever – Abraham Esther Hicks) Anyway…seems many of us are on same wavelength and ‘attracting’ similar ideas!! All good! πŸ™‚

  • Lizette says:

    And me! It’s really funny, because tomorrow, two weeks ago, I actually woke up in my new perfect-for-our-family home and I had that “Where am I? Oh! In my perfect home!” feeling and since then we’ve had lots of amazing moments, new things and exciting events. It feels kind of like being on a permanent vacation. πŸ™‚ And things are manifesting like crazy. LOVING it!

  • Yay, Melanie! Glad you liked it!
    And Cat, how funny are we?! lol

  • Cat says:

    This is really creepy, Jeannette, because just the other day the exact same idea occurred to me! πŸ˜€ An idea whose time has come, much?

  • Thank you for existing! This is super helpful Jeannette. I’ll be reading bits of this first thing in the morning to remind me I’m living my happily ever after… because I am.
    Thanks Rock Star!

  • You know, Anna, I’ve read that from Joseph Murphy’s “Power of the Subconscious Mind” which is where I first become inspired to play with that “state of mind.”
    I’ve certainly had fun with it in the past, although I think Abe says something like it’s not the subconscious mind that matters – it’s the conscious mind. But regardless, this practice is easy to enjoy.

  • Anna BoBana says:

    And it happens to be the best time of the day to retrain our thoughts and beliefs – everything we take in for the first 30 minutes after waking goes in deeper, sticks around longer, and has an effect on the rest of our day.

  • Hear hear, Karen!
    And Jacqui, you strike me as someone who will do exceptionally well with this one!

  • Bloody brilliant! My living-as-if just got started earlier!

  • Karen says:

    All that’s left is filling in the delicious details of “happily ever after.” πŸ™‚

  • Karen says:


  • Glad you enjoyed it, Siri and Deanna! You’ll have to let us know how you like it if/when you give it a try.

  • Deanna Morris Rogowski says:

    this is such a delicious post… as with much that you write, Jeannette – what a fantastic way to wake up!! trying this in the morning… yeah!

  • Siri says:

    This is perfect – just what I needed to hear before I go to bed!!
