Unique Brain Waves
Just in between the sleeping and waking state is a brain state known as the Alfa State. When in the Alfa State, your brain produces unique brain waves that have been found to be very helpful in increasing the effectiveness of personal affirmations.
An affirmation is a specialized technique of stating a goal to yourself in a way that re-programs your preconscious mind for improved performance. Affirmations are most effective when they are expressed as statements of fact or convictions written down in your own language. The most effective affirmations are personal, positive and in the present tense. For example, if your goal is to become a better parent, effective affirmations may include: “I am balanced in my expressions of discipline and understanding toward my children.” or “When I demonstrate love and compassion to my kids, they learn to show love and warmth to each other.”

To use a progressive alarm clock for an affirmation practice, formulate and write down an affirmation of improvement in your life. Before you go to sleep, read the affirmation to yourself and resolve to remember it when you first wake up. When you are first awakened by your Zen Alarm Clock, lie quietly in bed before moving or opening your eyes and repeat your affirmation to yourself three times. If you lie still, the chances are good that your brain will remain in the Alpha State during the first few strikes of the bowl or chime.

If you do nothing to disturb this “freshly awakened” state while you repeat your affirmation to yourself, you will maximize the effectiveness of the affirmation through this alfa wave programming technique. Like the dreamwork techniques discussed above, the improvement of your life through affirmations in the alpha state can be accomplished without the use of Zen Clocks; but using the progressive alarm clock makes the process easier and more fun.
