The reflexive pronoun need to match the subject of the verb (who's doing the action) :
 Je vais se lever. -> Je vais me lever.

"ne pas se lever!" is this a correct form?

Bonjour Murat, Je vais me lever tôt The negative statement, I am not going to get up early seems to me to be Je ne vais pas me lever tôt ! However, it is possible that Je vais ne pas me lever tôt ! could also be correct, i.e. I am going to not get up early.
Perhaps we need to hear from Aurélie as to which is correct on this.
