People often complain about being unable to fall asleep or waking up in the middle of the night without their alarm buzzing off. This might be your body trying to tell you something you need to pay attention and you need to know how to interpret the signs. Energy is flowing through your body’s energy meridians and you are probably not even aware of this.
There have been numerous articles which explained how these energy meridians are interpreted in Traditional Chinese medicine and how they are used in acupuncture and acupressure to resolve a number of health issues. What you may not know about these meridians is that they are connected to a clock system and according to ancient Chinese medicine different parts of your body are energized at different times of the day. This is why if you wake up at a certain time during the night it means that some part of your body is blocked or weak and you need to do something to fix this.
