Not everybody goes to bed and falls asleep like a log till the next morning. Some people sleep like a baby and wake up refreshed while some other people occasionally wake up in the night for some reason and they roll over and sleep. But then, there is another set of people. These last set wake up at a specific time in the middle of the might and cannot sleep again until a particular amount of time has elapsed. Are you one of those people who would always wake up at a certain time every night almost like clockwork? If you have, you might have just thought that you might have a totally different sleep schedule from other people. But what if it has to do with something else that is totally different?
In one write up I saw, the writer urges the readers not to go back to sleep but to father some introspective thoughts. Thinking introspective thoughts especially when we wake up in the middle of the night might not be for all of us. After all, what should be at the top of your list is how to get back to sleep so that you don’t look like death warmed over the next morning. However, it does not matter if you want to think about deep topics or not, if you wake up in the middle of the night at the same time then the secrets of the world just might be yours to discover. It’s funny how we have these weird energy that flows right through us.
Recent research has touched on this topic, and they have found out that the energy meridians were used your ancestral Chinese medicine men. The meridian is attached to a clock which then gives energy to different parts of the body as the hours roll by. So, when you wake up at particular times in the night, it means that there is an influx of energy to some parts of your body or a reduction of energy to some parts of your body.
Read on below to know what causes you to be awake at a particular time each night.
Inability to sleep between 9 and 11 p.m.
This is a big sign that you are supposed to be here. If you are not able to fall asleep between 9 and 11 pm, then you really have a bad case of anxiety and stress only compounds it for you. Try to leave your worries outside your bed and focus on just feeling relaxed. You will soon sleep better if you work out your muscles or keep repeating mantras and just generally trying to relax.
Inability to sleep between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.
The energy meridian of our gallbladder is very active between 11 pm, and 1 am. However, waking up every night at this time does not mean you are going to have a gallbladder illness, but rather it means that you are disappointed. Try to forget whatever it is that you have done and just try to sleep.
Inability to sleep between 1 and 3 a.m.
If you are awake every single night between 1 and 3 am, then your problem has to do with an energy meridian. It is closely connected to the Chinese and does have links to the liver of a human being. If you are awake now, it is probably because you are annoyed with something or someone. Try drinking water and control your thoughts.
Inability to sleep between 3 and 5 a.m.
Your inability to sleep within this hour has something to do with the fact that there is an energy meridian that goes directly through our lungs and it has a connection to our mood. Sadness to be precise. If you want to sleep within this period, you should try out the following exercises. Breathe deeply and try to connect with your inner spirit man.
Inability to sleep between 5 and 7 a.m.
Do you find yourself unable to fall asleep between 5 and 7 am in the morning too? Not to worry. This just indicates that there is a flow of energy within the large intestines. This could also be as a result of the more emotional issues that you need. So, try to empty your mind and try to sleep. To help you sleep a lot faster, you should work your muscles, and it just wears you down.
Human beings don’t wake up in the night and immediately become alert, and this is due to a phenomenon called sleep inertia. According to Wikipedia,”Sleep inertia is a physiological state of impaired cognitive and sensory-motor performance that is present immediately after awakening. It persists during the transition from sleep to wakefulness, where an individual will experience feelings of drowsiness, disorientation and a decline in motor dexterity.
Impairment from sleep inertia may take several hours to dissipate. In the majority of cases, morning sleep inertia is experienced for 15 to 60 minutes after waking.” What causes sleep inertia when you wake up in the night is that the frontal part of the brain responsible for thinking hasn’t yet regained its own consciousness. So for a while, you are groggy so you might want to avoid signing any documents seeing as how the decision making part of your brain is still asleep.
Perhaps you must have heard all about the fact that when we sleep we have dreams which some people see as images or events from an alternate universe, others see it is a means by which they are communicating to a higher being. Even more interesting is that everybody’s own personal sleep cycle is connected to the act of moving to a higher level of consciousness. So, when you wake up at whatever time you wake up at, just think of how it would be something really awesome. Just be prepared for the adventure that might come when you are awake.
