This time of night is linked to the energy meridian passing through the lungs and is connected with feelings of sadness. If you want to fall asleep faster try taking slow and deep breaths and have faith in your Higher Power, it will help you with your problems.
Another thing that could be waking you up between 3:00 am and 5:00am is a sign of your Higher Power telling you to pay attention to the messages that are being sent and align yourself with your higher purpose.
Waking up between 5:00AM and 7:00AM
In this early morning period the energy is flowing through your intestines and if you usually wake up this early you probably suffer from some emotional blockages. When you wake up try stretching for a few minutes or going to the toilet, it will help you go back to sleep.
Brain function and waking up in the middle of the night
When we wake up in the middle of the night our brains aren’t fully awake. The NewYorker.com describes this phenomenon in the following way: ‘One of the consequences of waking up suddenly, and too early, is a phenomenon called sleep inertia. First given its 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.’
When we abruptly wake up in the middle of the night the prefrontal cortex part of the brain that is involved in decision-making and self-control is not awake yet and we’re not up for some deep intelligent thoughts. This is why you need to avoid making important decisions.
Waking up and fulfilling your higher purpose
While you sleep you also often dream and this is the time of night when you could receive messages from the Divine about your path in life. Your dreams could be revealing important details about your spiritual journey which is why you need to be aware of this signs your Higher Power is sending.
There are many people out there who doubt these theories but there are also many who have chosen to believe and follow their destined path in life. They’ve realized that we’re all here to learn and develop until we become the best versions of ourselves. True believers call this process of transformation to a higher level of consciousness Ascension and in order to achieve this higher level you need to be aware of your higher purpose.
It doesn’t matter if you believe in ascension or not, if you constantly wake up between 3:00AM and 5:00AM something is clearly off and you need to start paying closer attention to your Higher Power if you want to restore your good night sleep.
