Use imagination to change Negative to Positive
First thing in the morning, imagine yourself tremendously happy. Get out of bed in a very happy mood, radiant, bubbling, expectant, as if something perfect, of infinite value, is going to happen today.
Get out of the bed in a very positive and hopeful mood, with the feeling that this day is not going to be an ordinary day, that something exceptional, extraordinary, is waiting for you; something is very close by. Try and remember it again and again for the whole day. Within seven days you will see that your whole pattern, your whole style, your whole vibration, has changed.
When you go to sleep in the night, just imagine that you are falling into divine hands…as if existence is supporting you, that you are in its lap, falling asleep. Just visualize it and fall asleep. The one thing to carry is that you should go on imagining and let sleep come, so that the imagination enters into sleep; they are overlapping.
Don’t imagine any negative thing, because if people who have an imaginative capacity imagine negative things, they start happening. If you think that you are going to get ill, you will get ill. If you think that somebody is going to be rude to you, he will be. Your very imagination will create the situation.
So if a negative idea comes, immediately change it to a positive thought. Say no to it. Drop it immediately; throw it away. Within a week you will start feeling that you are becoming very happy — for no reason at all.
You may not be sleeping well in the night. Very few people are sleeping well, so when you have not slept well in the night you are a little tired during the day. If that is the case, then do something with your sleep. It should be made deeper. Time is not much of a question, you can sleep for eight hours, and if it is not deep you will feel hungry for sleep, starved, depth is the question.
Every night before you go to sleep do a small technique, and that will help tremendously. Put the lights off, sit in your bed ready to sleep, but sit for fifteen minutes. Close your eyes and then start any monotonous nonsense sound, for example: la, la, la — and wait for the mind to supply new sounds. The only thing to be remembered is those sounds or words should not be of any language that you know.
When the unconscious speaks, the unconscious knows no language.
It is a very, very old method. It comes from the Old Testament. It was called in those days glossolalia and a few churches in America still use it. They call it “talking in tongues”. And it is a wonderful method, one of the most deep and penetrating into the unconscious. You start by saying “la, la, la,” and then anything that comes you go on. Just for the first day you will feel it is a little difficult. Once it comes, you know the knack of it. Use the language that is coming to you. This will relax the conscious so deeply.
Fifteen minutes — and you then just simply lie down and go to sleep. Your sleep will become deeper. Within weeks you will feel a depth in your sleep, and in the morning you will feel completely fresh.
