Does Time Make a Difference?


I kept waking up to check the clock. Is it time yet?


15 minutes is set, timer is clicking and I am typing.


Yesterday, I was on the phone with my good friend Patti. We chatted about what changes we are making in our spiritual, physical, emotional and mental lives. She was saying how she spent the day listening to testimonies of people who have done workshops with Dr. Joe Dispenza.

Patti loves science and spiritual practice nevertheless she is a self-proclaimed skeptic.

I need analytical proof before I believe something to be true.”

Patti’s open mind is set to disbelieve at any moment. She investigates and researches all topic she is interested in. She takes what she knows at a gut level to be true to form her own beliefs.  If an expert had been touting a theory she wants to know if others have replicated it and maintained the belief beyond a weekend workshop.

She told me that she wanted to not only know more about Dr. Joe’s background and experiences but that she was interested in listening to testimonials from others who had healing experiences.

What held her attention for a good part of the day were the testimonials she listened to online from people who had taken his workshops.  What she saw unfolding in front of her were real people with real illnesses talking about meditating in the style set up by Dr. Joe. Day after day they practice the techniques and change happened. A shift in their absolute belief that they were healthy took them from illness to wholeness. That absolute vison of seeing, feeling and believing themselves to be healthy changed their brains and bodies to reflect that reality.

Patti said that no two stories were alike. The power to heal is inside us all.

Dr. Dispenza is a well know chiropractor, researcher and speaker who has studied the mind body connection for at least 30 years. He was featured in a well-known film called “What the Bleep Do We Know?”  The film was intended to open the mind to new possibilities. The synopsis says:

a viewpoint of the physical universe and human life within it, with connections to neuroscience and quantum physics. … That the universe is best seen as constructed from thoughts and ideas rather than from matter.

A look at life through a different lens was revealed and since that time Dr. Joe has used scientific evidence and millions of brain scans to make his case. He says that no matter if your male or female, no matter the color of your skin or your religious background, you can break the habit of being yourself and move into creating your world.

Patti kept repeating that in most of the testimonials people said that they meditated at 4:30 AM every morning. This thought played in my brain:

What would my meditation hence, my life, be like if I meditated at 4:30 AM?

As a writer, I have heard for years how many famous writers got up before dawn to write. I have friends who belong to the 5 AM writing club, #5amwriting, morning tweets ring out that they are writing. Many have fulltime jobs to attend to during the daylight hours so 5 AM is a great undisturbed time to be immersed in story.

I cannot say that I have had a desire to get up at 5 AM to write. Looking at why I realized that I believed that my body needed 8 hours of sleep. I am not a night owl, when my energy runs low that’s it I am done. I am a morning riser, suns up I am up. So I can change my belief system but for now I want to concentrate on meditation.

Why would people get up day after day to meditate at 4:30 AM?

 From my studies it’s all about the brain waves. In the waking hours of our day the brain is full of activity. When we sleep the brain waves slow down. It is that state of slower brain waves that we strive for in meditation. If you don’t need to lower your brain waves at the beginning of a meditation, because you have been in sleep mode, how will it affect meditation?

Are you with me so far?

I don’t know until I meditate several nights at 4:30 AM. Last night, I set my alarm to start testing 4:30 AM meditation.

Right away the doubts and questions rushed through my brain like a freight train.

  • What if my body is too tired to meditate and I fall back asleep?
  • What difference will it make in my meditative practice?
  • Will I see effects in my waking life?
  • Will I be wake up my husband, dogs and cat, losing my edge on meditation?


I acknowledged each of these questions and let them go.

Meditation opens the door between the conscious and subconscious minds. We meditate to enter the operating system of the subconscious, where all of those unwanted habits and behaviors reside, and change them to more productive modes to support us in our lives.”

Dr. Joe Dispenza

Here is what I know to be true:

  • Setting my intention changes the outcome.
  • If you change old patterns and beliefs with new uplifting patterns you change who you are.
  • I envision my day/future as if it is already true.
  • I expect everyday miracles to fill me with joy.
  • And when I sit down to meditate; I get up a different me.
