Set your alarm to 
"have a better day"

“Welcome to Rise & Shine the phone app that WILL change your life!

Become a better version of yourself every day simply by setting your alarm. Awake happy & motivated, experience light bulb moments of inspiration, clarity of mind, a heightened state of awareness, the jigsaw pieces come together as the law of attraction is provoked. Truly fantastic things begin to happen as you drift and dream to a tranquil state of euphoric bliss. ~ “You are alive”.... it is time to Rise and Shine!”

WHY IT WORKS, IN MORE DETAIL

To understand a little further lets look at a few areas of the mind. Understanding results in confidence, confidence is the key to success!

I believe it is also important to understand that this is no airy fairy mind trick, this is simply the language of the brain. Positive programming is applied using the language of the brain when you are at your most susceptible.

Our conscious mind is our boss, what it says goes, our conscious thoughts are submitted to our subconscious mind, the job of our subconscious is to turn our every intention into reality.

Our subconscious mind doesn't understand the difference between positive or negative, imagination or reality. It will work equally hard to turn all thoughts into action. So only positive thoughts are of any benefit to us, negative thoughts are harmful, and detrimental to our state of mind.

While in a dream-like state of REM positive suggestions will compliment your intentions embedding deeply into your pre left frontal cortex. If you are in agreement with the suggestions then they become your intentions, now your subconscious works on your behalf to turn your every intention into reality. You become susceptible to opportunities, find positives in everything, notice the green traffic lights and the glass is always half full, your subconscious provides you with inspiration and ideas, finds solutions to problems. Not because I say so, but simply the power of your subconscious mind.

It doesn't matter if you hear everything or don't remember a word that was said... the subconscious hears it all. Imagination is a fantastic tool for positive transformation and while you drift and dream to a tranquil state of euphoric bliss, positive seeds are planted deeply into the garden of your subconscious.

Conscious Mind
You are in your conscious mind when you are in the present moment, when you are aware of the choices you make.
The conscious mind is the boss of the brain, you are in your conscious mind just 10% of the time. Every thought you have at a conscious level is submitted to the subconscious, the subconscious mind is always working to turn your every conscious intention into reality. When you are in agreement with Rise & Shine suggestions they become your conscious intention, bounced back to your pre left frontal cortex. You will be in agreement as the suggestions are always for your benefit.  
Subconscious Mind
We are in our subconscious mind 90% of the time, a huge resource of information and mind activity. Envisage an iceberg, the tip is our conscious mind, the vast area beneath is the subconscious mind. The job of our subconscious mind is to turn our every intention into reality and it is constantly working on our behalf.

 

Pre left frontal cortex

This is your adult intellectual area of your brain, it always comes up with answers based on a proper assessment of the situation and is generally very positive. When we are in this area of the brain we always get things right in life. This is the area of the brain that Rise & Shine aims to wake you up in, plant seeds in, and keep you in.

 

Anterior Cingulate Cortex
Consider this the Secretary of your brain. The secretary takes the job at hand and turns it into reality. The secretary will only come on board when the instruction is clear and concise, as though the outcome is inevitable. Rise & Shine is written in a language that ensures all of the key elements are included, the secretary is activated. The secretary comes on board when it is backed up by your own internal resources - Confidence, Motivation, Determination, Self-esteem etc.. Rise & Shine tracks insert these elements, reiterates them re cap's and re visit them to insure the instructions are delivered with all of the ingredients for success. Now fantastic things start to happen. Envisage blue prints, blue prints turn into sky scrappers as your intention becomes a reality.   

 

Amygdala
The fight or flight area of the brain. In a life threatening situation the Amygdala will drive you to fight or run. Rise & Shine keeps you out of this area of your brain. This area of the brain is very beneficial for one thing, your own self preservation, it is very beneficial when you are in a life threatening situation. In life threatening situations you do not have time to make a proper assessment of the situation in a positive manner, you lose intellectual control and you react negatively to save your life. It is not beneficial however to be in this area of the brain in daily life, and most certainly not useful to wake up this way

When you are in the Amygdala for anything other than a life threatening situation the responses and actions are distorted. The hormones released are stressful and not suitable to serve you. To save your life the Amygdala must instantly respond with a 'worst case scenario' outlook, it must be negative, it must be on red alert at all times. It would make you tense ready to react, panic and stress, creating depression and anxiety, keep checking for the danger - obsessive compulsive disorders,  all of these symptoms are beneficial if you came face to face with a polar bear, you would be correct to be on red alert, to keep checking for danger, to respond to a worst case scenario, if you invited the polar bear into the warmth you would likely be dead in an instant. if you considered it might of alread ate, it would eat you as quick as you pondered on it. The negative responses are not beneficial when you are up against life's daily struggles, bills, break ups, a stubbed toe! We must remain in adult intellectual control, we must remain in our pre left frontal cortex. Rise & Shine prevents the user waking up in the Amygdala kick starting a fantastic day in the right frame of mind, making sure you don't get out of the wrong side of the bed, ready to take on the day in such a positive way.
REM Sleep

 

REM -  Rapid Eye Movement sleep, is one of the five stages of sleep that most people experience nightly. It is characterised by quick, random movements of the eyes and paralysis of the muscles. While the conscious mind rests, the subconscious mind works. Rise & Shine gradually wakes you from this state of mind, the subconscious absorbing the instructions and suggestions like a sponge, intentions turn into reality as fantastic positive changes begin.

Negative thoughts are detrimental to your state of mind. Every negative thought is submitted to the subconscious, the subconscious doesn't understand the difference between positive and negative, it will however work very hard to turn either into reality. If you jump out of bed and stub your toe, and shout "its going to be one of those crappy days!" then guess what... a crappy day will follow!

Every negative thought is converted into stress, anxiety and depression, stored in what we call our 'stress bucket' in our mind. A happy mind has an empty stress bucket. If your stress bucket is half full, it would be safe to say we are in the middle of our amygdala and our pre left frontal cortex. If the stress bucket is full or over flowing then we would be smack bang in our Amygdala the fight or flight area of the brain. Life is not manageable here, it's hectic and negative, on red alert and full of stress, anxiety and depression. This area of the brain will release hormones that make you feel bad, tired, even cortisol the stress hormone that will eat away at your lean muscle mass. We make bad desiccations here, regression and minimal progression, comfort eat etc... negative thoughts are detrimental to your state of mind.

Positive thoughts become reality, our mind achieves what our mind perceives. Rise & Shine plants only positive seeds.

If you are in agreement with the positive suggestions they become your intention, intention is nothing without action. Positive direction creates a reaction as your conscious and subconscious mind come into positive agreement, fantastic things start to happen. Every positive thought we have releases serotonin the feel good hormone, and what a positive thought that is.

Positive thoughts release stress from our 'Stress bucket' If our stress bucket is empty, we act from our pre left frontal cortex the area of the brain that always comes up with answers based on a proper assessment of the situation and is generally very positive. Life is good here. We are susceptible to opportunities and ideas, light bulb moments of inspiration! We have access to a huge resource of information, our pre left frontal cortex knows how to eat well, how to improve relationships, move up the career ladder, how to progress and win at life.

Can you picture a more perfect time to start thinking positively than before you even open your eyes?!

Anticipate happiness and happiness is yours. Life is good, you are alive! It is time to Rise & Shine.
