"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

"No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." -- Heraclitus

My partner is anything but a light sleeper--so no problems for me there! I use a recording of the Burmese bell/gong (downloaded from some Buddhist website) as the alarm ringtone. I like it, reminds me of being on Goenka retreats. But the vibration of the mobile starts before the ringtone comes on. The sound of it vibrating on the bedside table is enough to wake me up--if only to hit the snooze button (again and again....)

:zzz: :smile:

My mother is a shift worker. She works varying shifts at all kinds of ungodly hours.

Before she goes to sleep, she says to herself, 'I will wake up at 1am', and she concentrates very hard on it. She's never used an alarm in her life to my knowledge, and she tells me she's accurate, often to the minute. She says it just takes practice.

I know this works because I used to do it myself, back in the days when I still had something resembling a circadian rhythm. If you always go to sleep and wake up at the same time, it becomes an easy habit without an alarm.

Try it!
I'm not very good at right speech, although I try, so please guide and correct me if necessary so I don't make bad kamma for myself and cause others to be annoyed. (=

I use a meditation timer that makes a pleasant chiming sound, thus protecting my spouse from an attack of the grumpies.

I actually use a Dawn Simulator which is basically a dimmer on a timer which is programmable to gradually brighten a lamp at a specific time. (I've got it set for 7 AM.)

You wake up naturally when it gets full-bright, no need for beeps and vibes. However, you have to get used to waking up at the same time every day. If you set it to some odd time when you don't usually wake up, you'll probably be waking up late.

I think drinking lot of water actually works. At least when I need to wake up early.

I apologize if I am leading this thread off topic, but I had to post a reply after reading a few remarks. As a previous poster stated, cell phones and any / all radio/elctromagnetic frequency tools should be used very mildly , not only for the case of future "cancers" , but most importantly to persons in this forum because they will disrupt your own bodily in-tunement , be it while just sleeping, or trying to meditate . Microwaves are a whole other story, I am shocked that any Buddhist would even own one.

As to disturbing the spouse, try going to bed a little earlier, and you will wake up a little earlier with no need of an alarm.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

New-age rubbish or new-age developments? You must decide which on your own , then decide if they are for your betterment or naught .

I am over it , thank-you for helping me with that .

My evidence is justified that someone as yourself would accept such and be content with his decision to do so. Thank-you again.

If you feel they are for your betterment (the one part of my post you left out copy/pasting) then this conversation is closed, if not and you still speak as you do ,then this conversation is closed.

If scientific evidence is what you need then I am part of an in-apropriate website that deals with Buddhism.
