Rumi once said down is full of secrets, encouraging you to listen to yourself and focus on the things you really want and need.
Do you often wake up at the same time at night without even arranging your alarm clock? If yes, this article is the real deal for you. This means that you need to pay more attention to the signs. You are a human being after all, and there are energies flowing through your body without you even realizing it.
Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on energy meridians, and these are important in the performance of acupuncture and acupressure methods.
Unfortunately, this issue may be caused by your everyday life. We live in a stressful world, and sometimes it’s really hard to cope with all the problems, arguments and tasks. We carry our own burden, and our body notices that. Your sleep patterns change and your mind is racing. Struggling with insomnia is not the best way to spend the night, right? Listen to your body and pay attention to all the things it says.
The energy meridians in your body are connected to some sort of a clock system. In Chinese medicine, this is energizing different body parts at different times of the day. If you wake up between 3:00am and 5:00am every night, you have energies in that particular body that are blocked or weak.
Trouble sleeping between 9:00pm and 11:00pm

Waking between 1:00am and 3:00am

Waking up between 3:00am and 5:00 am
It’s related to the energy meridian that goes through your lungs and the emotion of sadness. Take slow, deep breaths and express the faith in your Higher power to get back to sleep.

If you wake up at the same time every night, this may be the reason for your brain function and waking
Your brain isn’t fully awake when you wake up 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,” reads an article from TheNewYorker.com.
When you wake up suddenly, the prefrontal cortex part of your brain that regulates the decision-making process and self-control is still asleep. You’re unable to do any intelligent thinking when you wake up in the middle of the night, so try not to bring any important decisions.
Waking up and keeping your higher purpose
When sleeping, you dream and receive messages from the Divine about your path. Your dreams tell a lot about your spiritual journey. You have to learn how to understand the signs that your Higher Power sends to you.
Emotional problems can easily manifest in your body as pain. Your spirituality can be also manifested in your body. The divine inner spark you posses is being called upon at the time you wake up at night. Your Higher Power is sending a signal, and you better tune into it.
Many people realize that we’re all here to learn something and develop our being. You must become the best version of yourself. According to some people, the process of approaching to a higher level of awareness and consciousness is called an ascension. Becoming aware of your higher purpose is an essential part of the whole process.
