Our internal clock uses every method possible to try and notify us of any physical and spiritual problems. And when we deny our problems with our consciousness, our body uses the subconscious.
If you regularly wake up at the same time every night, it means your body is trying to show you that you have a problem that you're denying while in a waking state. Depending on the time frame you wake up in, you can find out what that problem is.
It may be a health-related issue of one of your organs or have to do with the suppression of emotions that you're afraid to voice out loud, and most often it's both.
Read on below to find out what your body is trying to tell you based on the time frame you wake up in.
Between 9 PM and 11 PM
From a health standpoint there's only 2 reasons to wake up shortly after you've fallen asleep - problems with the endocrine system or improper eating habits. In this time period, the endocrine system fuels up on enzymes and if it's not functioning properly it will prevent you from falling asleep. If you've had dinner too late or ate too much, you're also going to be waking up at this time. Spiritually, it's possible that you're being plagued by extreme stress. You may have serious obligations or challenges coming up the next day, ones you're heart's not in, and this could be making you highly anxious.
Between 11 PM and 1 AM
A health issue that would wake you up at this time of night is problems with the gallbladder and the processing of fats. You're retaining too many toxins in your body and this isn't allowing you to sleep soundly. As far as emotions, you'll be waking up in this time period if you're suffering from insults and low self-esteem. You don't feel confident enough in yourself, quite the opposite - you're afraid that anyone could hurt or ridicule you, which is causing you problems with sleep.
Between 1 AM and 3 AM
Physiologically, this is the time when the body detoxifies. The liver processes any toxins and cleanses your blood and if there's any problems during this process, you wake up in the middle of the night. Holding onto anger and disappointment are the emotional reasons that can also disrupt your sweet dreams in this time period. You've kept silent over too many negative emotions that it's time for you to vent.
Between 3 AM and 5 AM
This is the time when the lungs are active - we breathe faster and take in air in big gulps, so if you have problems with the respiratory system, you'll be waking up suddenly at this hour of the night. It's important that you perform breathing exercises every day in order to sleep well. From a spiritual viewpoint, waking up in this time frame means you're holding on to sorrow. It's time to cry a bit to feel better.
Between 5 AM and 7 AM
The large intestine is active during this time, so if you're not eating properly, frequently reaching for unhealthy food or eating too late at night, you'll be waking up in this period. But by changing your eating habits you can restore your peaceful sleep. In the emotional sense, waking up between 5 and 7 AM is a sign of severe anxiety. It's possible that you're constantly making plans for the future, wanting to keep circumstances under your complete control but it is not what's actually been happening lately.
