During the daytime and right before bed - while visualizing, repeating affirmations, and meditating - I feel confident, deserving, and empowered.

However, if I wake up during the middle of the night and visualize, affirm, and meditate, I feel very discouraged and undeserving. I don't understand why there is a such a big difference in how I feel night and day.

Does anyone deal with this or know how to explain it?

I agree with Daniele but for a different reason. I believe that during the day there are more distractions so our thoughts are not as focused. But in the darkness and silence of the night we have nothing but our thoughts. However this is a great opportunity for us because our thoughts are usually more concentrated whether good or bad at night. If you go to sleep with a positive thought you are more likely to wake up feel positive.

No exactly, but it did used to happen to me.

I worked a night shift for many years and between about 2am and 5.30am i felt terrible. It seemed to lift at about 6 in the morning.

It happened consistently and im not sure why.

Thank God i stopped working nights.It particularly affected me when i was going thru issues with relationships.

If affirmations change your state of mind, why not just change your state of mind with some affirmations. See it and be it! It seems like you want to put the responsibility on an outside source (night vs. day) when it's always you. It's you doing the affirmations and it's you feeling confident or discouraged. Do you see that it's all you all the time?

Simply because at night our fears and doubts are way more intense. Notice even when you're physically ill, it seems way worse at night. Your defenses are down, so it brings up to the surface how you may be feeling deep down. Keep on working on yourself, all these old doubts and fears will eventually be replaced as you retrain yourself to trust and believe.

Thank you, namaste
