Greeting the Sunrise and How to Use Gratitude for Peace of Mind

Greeting the sunrise has become an important part of my peace of mind routine

My Sunrise Gratitude Moment

  • Find unobstructed sunrise spot and get camera ready
  • Welcome the first rays with joy and sometimes singing, “Oh, what a beautiful morning! Oh, what a beautiful day! I’ve got a beautiful feeling everything’s going my way!”  
  • Close my eyes and feel the sun on my skin
  • Think about how grateful I am for the upcoming day

I didn’t know I even cared about sunrises until I moved to Kauai. Over the past 2 years I’ve really made it a point to greet the sunrise on school mornings and in doing so I’ve experienced so many amazing moments! This positive side effect of bus duty is being out and about in time to watch the sunrise on school mornings.

Sharing my sunrise and gratitude moment

I’ve developed my sunrise habit and I enjoy it so much I’ll do it anyway wherever I am. I see that sun and smile and feel so grateful. This practice has definitely has helped my peace of mind so much I’ve added it to my Inner Bank and I get paid $100 each time I take a moment to catch a sunrise or sunset. The sun has become a great reminder to give thanks and I glow with gratitude each time

The more mindful I am of my self-talk, the greater my peace of mind

I naturally get up earlier now because of my desire to catch the sunrise. Somehow starting the day early makes me feel better. I definitely enjoy sleeping past 10am although when I do that on a regular basis I feel unproductive and shameful like I wasted my day. Am I unproductive though and why do I feel so guilty sleeping in?  What does being unproductive mean about me? In my world, the belief says if I’m unproductive then I’m bad and never going to reach my goals. Since I don’t have my end goal I can never stop being productive. Ouch!

I love taking sunrise and sunset photos!

Believing I constantly having to be productive and successful is something I am still wrestling with

Since I currently don’t have my big goal of living in my dream house manifested, am I unsuccessful? At what stage of this journey will I finally feel I am “getting there” or see huge results? My self-belief is that I have to work constantly because I don’t have what I say I want. I became aware yesterday that this “I have to be productive” belief is causing me to be nervous which is the source of my anxiety. Ah ha! So yesterday I treated my anxiety using BSFF and got it down from a level 8 to a 5. Pretty awesome step.

Sunrise is different every morning

My internal beliefs and dialogs definitely shape my inner world and then create my outer one

I have practiced and become much more conscious of my self-talk. I discovered my thoughts were harsh and I constantly condemned myself. No wonder I always felt bad and guilty inside even when my outside world was going great. Now I speak kinder to myself and give love rather than scold as a nasty disciplinarian. Wow, I’m so grateful for that change!

The experts with Law of Attraction emphasize relaxing and knowing, that you don’t “have to do anything” and inspired actions come from faith

The abundant wave of success, that is what I want. And as long as I keep wanting it then it remains in the wanting stage and not being received. Oh, joy. Faith is the inspired action steps I take and those steps are always joyous and knowing. Like this blog post, I switched my vibe (I find cannabis helps me with that). Then bam, my negativity lifted and I started writing this post with inspired action. And I’m happy with how it’s evolving!

Once inspired action takes over then life is a breeze

Inspired action is also when you get clear. I operate from a place of knowing and everything is happy. You know that “in the zone” feeling? I find the more I trust myself and listen to my feelings that I get clear and expect what I want is coming and that inspired action flows.
