Waking Up Between 3-5AM? Its A Sign Of A Spiritual Awakening
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night and it has always been between 3-5am? Don’t ignore this phenomenon as this may be a sign for your spiritual awakening.
The energy meridians of the body are energy channels ‘transporting’ life energy (Chi/Qi) throughout the body. These are also connected to a clock system that according to ancient Chinese medicine is energizing different parts of your body at different times of the day. Therefore waking between 3am and 5am every night is a sign that energies in that corresponding part of your body are blocked or weak.

IF YOU WAKE UP AT THE SAME TIME EVERY NIGHT, THIS MAY BE WHY
Brain function and waking up in the middle of the night
According to The NewYorker.com our brains are not quite fully awake when we suddenly awaken at night. ‘One of the consequences of waking up suddenly, and too early, is a phenomenon called sleep inertia. First given a name in 1976, sleep inertia refers to that period between waking and being fully awake when you feel groggy. The more abruptly you are awakened, the more severe the sleep inertia.’ It said.
When we suddenly wake in the night, the prefrontal cortex part of the brain that is involved in decision-making and self-control is not awake yet. We are not capable of intelligent thoughts when we wake in the night so avoid making any important decisions.
Waking up and fulfilling your higher purpose
It’s important to sleep well and sleep cycles induce dreams and dreams can reveal details about the spiritual journey that you are on. As a human being on a spiritual journey, you need to be aware of the signs that your Higher Power is sending to you.
Just like how emotional problems can manifest in the body as pain, your spirituality can also manifest in bodily form as well. The divine inner spark that we all posses is being called upon at the time that you are waking up. This signal from your Higher Power is something to tune into.
Ancient knowledge stipulates that it is our purpose to reach a higher level of ourselves and strive for it constantly. So be aware and stay healthy!
