Amritvela problems


Recommended Posts

WJKK WJKF

I am having issues with my amritvela.

These are the issues that happen:

Alarm goes off (I wake up to AK47 Wale, the gun shots at the start on max volume) so when I wake up I immediately turn it off so I don't get a heart attack. 

I check what time it is and it is 3 A.M, and I ask myself am I ready for amritvela today and if it's a yes I will literally fall back asleep without knowing, it literally just happens.

OR

I will wake up and then I ask myself do I feel like doing paath today (which is a sin for me because you should always do it) and then I fall asleep.

Any tips?

Thanks

For one wake up to gurbani, it's too early to be listening to loud music lol..

Secondly daas personally uses Sleepyti.me (for finding a sleep schedule), then find a solid time that allows you to get in 6 solid sleep cycles, sleep at that time. Now this one is hard for many, make it permanent. Say you want to wake at 2am and the website says to sleep at 7:30pm, sleep and rise on those times every single day (weekend or weekday).

As for pushing yourself to get out of bed, first and foremost get awake and do a jakara at the top of your lungs, if you live alone, if not go outside and run until you sweat (you can question my methods, but not my results; so trust me). Another thing cut out junk in your diet (try to eat clean, so you won't feel lethargic). Working out hard will also help.

Some more tips

-As soon as your done with your run (or jakara) make your bed; this will instill some discipline and give you a sense of accomplishment, plus you'll be less likely to jump in if you know that you just fixed it.

-Before you go to sleep, don't use your phone for 1 hour

-Throw your blanket or rajaee off and jump out of bed

-Make getting out of bed fun, this one is up to you.. but daas starts busting out push-ups when I rise

 

NOTE: even if you get late for one night, still wake up at 2 no matter what; also when I said make your bed I mean bedsheets and all, not just covers. 

 

These were just my tips you don't have to use them, but you are more then welcome to try it..

That will literally break my throat lol

But I think I will just go downstairs and stick my face in the freezer, probably won't have the the urge to sleep then.

So now the only issue is me trying to get back into that game of amritvela, i feel that it has no importance anymore but when i do not do it then i feel sooooo guilty.

Lol, wonder if this one does work ? Je tand hove, fer rajayee sitan nu jee nai karna. 

It's all about habit, if you pertend like your awake, you'll feel more awake. If it's cold just start exercising warm, make yourself sweat.. 

 These things work for me, I'm just putting in my 2 cents

The jakara is for raising up your energy lol not to destroy your lungs 😂😂

Could you elaborate on the second part not sure I get it lol

Try to get a good amount of sleep; if you want Amrit vela badly it could mean sleeping at 7 (if you're willing to do it)

Yes, I guess discipline is the key. It's good you are able to use this technique.

The main challenge is getting out of bed. If you can do that, it's a lot easier. Sticking your phone on the other side of the room so you have to get out of bed to turn it off. Someone i knew used to drink a pint of water before bed. When they woke up, they would be bursting for the loo so they had to get out .

Once you develop a routine, it becomes a lot easier. It's much harder to initiate change than to maintain it.

In order to make it a habit, you dont have to force yourself up at 3.a.m.

What time can you naturally wake up. For a start, try to connect with your nitnem at any time. If you can waake up at 4, 5 or 6 do that. Slowly bring thei time down by 15 minutes. 

This will give you time to connect with your nitnem - which means you will miss something, when you dont do it. Bringing the time forwards slowly give allow you to adjust your time gradually.

Amritvela at 4 A.M is good too, right?

If I don't wake up at 3 A.M, it's like Waheguru is giving me a second chance to do it at 4 A.M.

Sometimes for me, I don't even recognize Amritvela passed, (I don't recommend alarm). So sometimes, I ask more times, (to Vaheguru), to wake-me at Amritvela. But later is better than not at all.

    • I have had this theory for some while  it is harder to abstain nowadays because we get married so late (into our 30s, or perhaps late twenties at best) back in the day Id be a father by 17 lol  not a excuse, just a interesting thought 
    • yeah I once used that point in a argument with some osho bhagat (from a sikh family) who said derogatory remarks on the other gurus, claiming guru nanak was the only enlightened one and that the rest *diluted* and corrupted guru nanak's message enshrined in japji sahib and the rest were all succeptible to emotions and panj chor (referred to "nis pyare seo neho" to say guru angad was attached to the mortal frame of guru nanak and was depressed when guru nanak passed away but I tried giving him a more accurate translation of the words) the guy kept on copying and pasting the same essay on mahantaa of sri japuji sahib in comments so I confronted him if he believed in japji sahib and then he got more osho type philosophical, basically proving he didnt believe in amrit bani but yeah shocker, the very japji he was praising had its salok composed by guru angad who he was belittling     it all started from him asking whether he was a sikh or a nanakpanthi (neither in my opinion, he was parroting his guru osho's words and I woouldnt be surprised that if osho had flipped his views on guru nanak this guy now would have been slandering guru nanak as well), i remember it pissed me off for the two days we went back and forth lmaoo 
    • I thought everyone knew I forgot which source, but I read it somewhere as a kid  At the moment, I can only recount bhai jagraj singh of BoS saying this a couples times, somewhere in his panj bania lecture or the japji sahib katha sikhs were asking guru maharaj for a morning bani, so guru maharaj blessed them with japji (I believe some were doing asa di vaar, at least as much was pargat by then, in addition as well but I may be wrong)  the sewa of compiling shabads into a japuji sahib was entrusted to bhai lehna (guru angad) at the time of gurgaddi divas of guru angad dev ji maharaj, he composed the salok to complete japji sahib (as the maha mantar was given by akaal purakh when guru nanak went to sach khand abode of paarbrahm kartar and guru nanak replied with the rest of mool mantar; I dont know some may differ with me and say brahmgyani and mahapursh are always in the STATE of sach khand but you guys get what I am trying to convey)   that is all I can recall for now but I will try to do more khoj onto this topic
