Do you find yourself waking up at the same time every night? Waking up between 3-5am can be an ascension symptom but if you find yourself waking up constantly around the same time each night, it could be because your body is trying to send you a message.
According to the ancient Chinese Medicine Body Clock, energy runs through a different meridian of your body at different times of day. These meridians are like channels which send energy to different organs in order to promote health and vitality.
When there is a blockage in these channels however, energy cannot pass through causing stagnation or a build up of energy. This can then disturb your sleep and wake you up. In Traditional Chinese Medicine if you wake up consistently at the same time, it could indicate a sign of weakness in the corresponding meridian or organ.
Here is a list of the organs associated with different times:
- Unable to fall asleep between 9 pm to 11 pm
This may be a sign of excessive stress so you should try meditation and yoga to fall asleep easier.
- Waking up between 11 pm and 1 am
According to ancient Chinese medicine, waking up at this period may be a sign of emotional disappointment. You should practice forgiveness and self-acceptance, as well as positive mantras, to treat this problem.
- Between 1 am to 3 am
The meridian that serves the liver activates during this time. The liver is an essential organ that performs various vital functions such as providing hormonal balance, regulating digestion and removing toxins. The liver also suffers if you are too stressed and it can trigger anxiety, rage, anger and guilt. If this is the case with you, you should try to take control over the situation and keep in touch with your emotions.
- Between 3 am and 5 am
Waking at this time can tell you several different things about your current state.
Firstly, since 3-5am is a time associated with the energy meridian connected to sadness, you might want to consider what you can do to practice better self-care before bed (and when you wake up).What do you find soothing? Is there any music you can listen to, or could you take a warm bath with lavender oil?
Secondly, for some people waking up at this time is an indicator that the universe is trying to direct your attention towards messages that relate to your higher purpose. This is an indicator that you’d benefit from refreshing your memory of the major Law of Attraction signs that suggest you’re at risk of missing new opportunities to manifest your intentions.
- Waking Between 5am And 7am
Of course, some people need to get up between 5am and 7am due to work constraints (or personal preference). However, for those who are free to sleep longer, waking unbidden at this time can indicate a general emotional blockage.
Sometimes, simple stretching stiff muscles and emptying your bladder can help, but at other times there’s a need to identify and face up to something that’s bothering you. Often, it will be an unresolved argument or relate to important feelings that you haven’t yet aired.
All in all, we need to understand that our bodies are a fascinating thing and that knowing how to observe and listen to them will better our physical and spiritual wellbeing.
