Title Quote: Hal Elrod
Silent meditation at the start of your day
Source is connected to guide your way
Affirmations plant positive seeds in your head
Allowing them to bloom in the days ahead
Visualization sets your desired goal
Virtuous images delight your Soul
Exercise benefit’s the physical part of you
Essential balancing with mind and spirit too
Reading self-growth books will provide ideas and more
Recommended wisdom opens many a door
Scribing your thoughts and journey, the path you take
Supports all your Miracle Morning, your Soul will Awake

About This Poem
Several years ago I came across Hal Elrod online and read of his amazing recovery from a fatal car crash that left him in a coma with serious injuries. He went on to achieve great success as a speaker, life-coach and author. His first book was an autobiography of his story: ‘Taking Life Head On (How To Love The Life You Have, While You Create The Life Of Your Dreams’)
I added this book and The Miracle Morning to my Amazon Wishlist (which contains way too many books!) thinking I must read them one day. I also added several of his positive attitude quotes to my website, which is why I easily remember his name. A few years later I was at the library with my grandchildren. I hadn’t gone to get any books, but I always take a look at the ‘Mind, Body, Spirit’ shelves just to see what’s there. I noticed a Hal Elrod book, The Morning Miracle, so I knew I had to borrow it! I was hooked within a few pages and devoured it, making notes. I knew I had to do this!
The Miracle Morning encourages you to wake early each morning and do a list of six things to transform your life. As a guide to remember the six things he uses the acronym SAVERS:
Silence, Affirmation, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, Scribing.
I must admit that I only stuck to it for about six months, it certainly did make a difference, but I found that I was so absorbed in doing the things and began adding more and more to the list, it would take up ALL of the morning, no matter how early I got up!!! So I let go of ‘having’ to do it, and instead just keep it in mind as beneficial things to do every day.
