Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
Waking up at 3am spiritual meaning
Have you noticed that you are waking up the same time every night? 1am, 2am, 3am, 4am or even 5am? Do you wake up in the middle of the night?
Do you feel the world is sleeping, but you are awake? The world is dark and every so often you hear the odd car whizz by. You want to go back to sleep but you can’t. It is true to say that we all wake up a little bit in the night as we are focused on the different sleep cycles. Sometimes we wake when our temperature is too hot, but do we naturally wake up at this time? So you are wondering what on earth it actually means! Well look no further, we will review why you are waking up in these early hours spiritually. Yes, it is not a coincidence. When I was developing my medium skills, something would go wrong with this website I would without fail wake in the night. Immediately, at 3-4 am I would have to write about a certain topic, add more content, or sort out errors or whatever else was needed to keep the site. In fact, my best work was at 3am in the morning. The spooky and somewhat creepy thing was that I would wake up at 3am every morning, on the dot, without doubt. In fact, it got so regular that I would plan it, I would go to sleep at 8-9pm to wake up at 3am then back to sleep between 5-6am. What a hassle I thought. Why could I not just sleep though the night like everyone else?
In fact, I did not think of anything more about it. Then the occasion of waking up at 3am would get gradually more and more, depending on the stress in my life, the needs of others or mediumship requirements and I started to research, to try to understand the reason why you and I would wake up in the middle of the night - from a spiritual perspective. Then I remembered when I first started on my spiritual journey in life on the other side, when I was ten years old, thirty years ago, I would wake me up around 2am every morning. In fact, all those that are “spiritually aware” tend to wake up in the early hours. So yes, spirit wakes you when you are sound asleep!
In order to understand why you are waking up at 3am or whatever hour in the morning, we need to review the “spiritual side” in life but also the energy that we yield in our bodies and what this means in daily life! When we are asleep we receive messages from the divine and this can be a single of our energy. After all, our bodies are full of energy fields. If we look turn to Zen Buddhism and there is a connection between the dark and the human body, this is being awake and the relationship with spirit. The nighttime events of waking can yield us a more deeper outlook on life. The inky blackness of the sky is normally a time when we think about all the elements that we need to - job, relationships, health, family and wealth. Many people, like you do will wake in the middle of the night and be unable to get back to sleep. Perhaps you are surfing Google or worrying about how to pay the bills.
Normally, I wake up around 3 but sometimes 4 and if I wake up at 5am I normally stay up. Yes, this happens most nights. The thing that struck me was the immense amount of heat that I feel. I wake sweating, boiling hot and have to walk around for a while or even go outside. Now, this has been going on for around twenty years. The most important element that we need to take away from this is the fact that between the hours of 3am and 5am in the morning the spiritual real is at its thinnest. We often hear about this on Halloween night. this is when spirit connect to and provide you with certain clues, ideas and ultimately messages. Yes, it is important you got to listen to any messages come through during this time. You may not think very much of this the fact that you are hot or sweating might just put down to an illness the heat is the fact you are "communicating" with the above, yes, spiritually you are connecting with a different dimension. In order to understand what these messages are it takes some work and time.
Firstly, rather than just jump up. and try to use your imagination in order to create calmness. You need to work yourself into a phase of visualisation, that you feel not only protected but also comfortable. The way that I often deal with these nightly wake ups is to imagine a temple, a place in nature alternatively a castle. This is a place where both our physical and spiritual path meet. You can use anything in your mind when the thinning of the veils between our waking world spiritual world unite. This is a place where spirit can talk to you under their own terms. The only way to focus on this is to develop your mind and strength. Make sure that you are not disturbed and set the atmosphere in your mind in order to focus on what they want to communicate. Close your eyes and try to relax and focus on your breathing. As you relax try to draw all your energies and create a sense of peace internally. As it is very dark it will be easy to do this. As you breathe deeply you will see a soft and gentle light which will shine with brilliance. Once a spirit has connected with you try to write down any messages or thoughts that you encountered. Once you have received the message then try to go back to sleep.
Now, the other area I want to cover is that it is important to say that at night we have nothing to distract us. We are what is known as “protected” the troubles are not protected. The light cannot hide away our energy or our troubles. Sometimes I used to try to stay awake as long as I could at night so that I was exhausted and could then fall into a sleep and actually sleep past the 3am time bomb! Now, spiritually, to wake up between the hours of 1am and 5am is known as waking up on the “hour of the wolf” which yes, places the creepy werewolf in your mind. This “hour of the wolf” is known as the hour when people pass onto the other side, the sleepless night can be disturbing. So what about research? Research shows that the hours between 3am and 5am this is connected to when we are most vulnerable in life. This is when the army or special forces attack others, or alternatively in war the enemy is least likely to attack. We believe that waking in the night is not natural. Let’s review babies, they often wake in the night for a feed. What about the studies? Dr Thomas Wehr studied many subjects that awoke in the night. So did cavemen sleep more than we do, did they sleep better for example and due to our artificial light and the modern world is this why we wake up in the middle of the night?
The study by Dr. Thomas Wehr concluded that our rhythms of sleep have changed. Modern humans sleep on average seven to eight hours a night and this maybe due to artificial lightening. This has resulted in us becoming sleep deprived. He did a study and removed lighting from one group and the other group carried on as normal. What was strange was the difference between the two. Those people that had be subjected to artificial light normally woke up in the night, after approximately four hours of sleep. The study found that the hormone called “prolactin” was high in the bodies of those that did awake in the night. This is the same hormone that keeps the birds sitting on their eggs and helps animals rest.
So, tomorrow night, make sure you do not check your phone, go on your laptop or iPad and you may have a more sound night's sleep. Removing electronic devices will have an effect on your sleep pattern. Going back into the spiritual side of waking in the night we need to review the ancient Hindu text known as the Mandukya Unpanishad. This text basically looked at the consciousness of being asleep and why we awake. It was believed that waking in the night was a transcendent state that makes our spirit fall into the unknown. So, when we sleep we wake up open to spiritual contact.
Do we always need eight hours of interrupted sleep? It’s just not true. So, like I said, if you wake in the middle of the night, get out of bed. Try to uncover the mystery of your life, take some time to meditate and celebrate your solitude!
