There is a strong connection between our spiritual self and our health, and some Chinese ideologies even go further and give health a special attention at different periods. According to the Chinese, waking up in the middle of the night means that your spiritual energy is blocked.
Here’s what’s wrong with your body according to the time you wake up:
21:00 – 23:00
This is the time when most people prepare to go to sleep. At this point of the night, the endocrine system, which is responsible for your hormone levels and metabolism is getting rebalanced and replenished with enzymes. Not being able to fall asleep at this time means that you are stuck in a “fight or flight” situation. You are probably overburdened with some events from the last day or you are preparing for tomorrow. Repeating the same words and phrases just puts you in a state of agony and tension, so try to relax.
23:00 – 01:00
This is the time when your energy is transformed to yang, an active energy that feeds the body for the next day. If you wake up at this point in the night, you are probably experiencing feelings of judgment towards yourself or others, so it might be a good idea to start respecting yourself more in order to relax.
Another thing that could be waking you up at this time of the night can be a heavy dinner. At this time, the body start breaking down fat, and this process may be responsible for your inability to sleep.
01:00 – 03:00
At this time, the body is in the process of renewal – the liver start flushing out toxins and purifies your blood. Waking up at this time is also associated with anger, frustrations and generally negative emotions. Try to get rid of your frustrations in order to sleep better at night.
03:00 – 05:00
This is the time when the body receives oxygen – if you wake up at this point of the night, you need to do some breathing exercises. Waking up at this time may also be related to feelings of pain and sorrow.
05:00 – 07:00
Poor diet or eating heavy meals late at night may be the reason for waking up between 5 and 7AM.
