Have you ever wondered why you wake up at the same time every night?
It’s more or less like your mind is gifted with a malfunctioning alarm clock that rings you awake each night despite your urge to sleep soundly for eight hours.
But you don’t need to worry about it in the first place!
“The average adult awakens seven to 15 times each night, and this is normal,” says Michael Perlis, director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine.
In this article, hidden spiritual meanings behind waking up at the same time every night like 1 am, 2 am, 3 am and 4 am.
Waking up at 1 AM
For most people who sleep on time, 1 AM at night is usually when they enter deep sleep. Therefore, if you are waking up every night at 1 AM then that is a sign that you worry a lot and are feeling stressed. Other than signifying emotional turmoil, waking up at this time also signifies that your body is having trouble with breaking down food.
If you find yourself awake at 1 a.m. each night, it may suggest that you are currently floundering to move on in your life. You desperately need positive energy.
You’re not sure enough about what makes you happy and tend to rely on other people’s opinions to choose things for you.
Waking up at 1 a.m. can also mean that you are angry and irritated with the issues going on in your daily life. It could be that your job or the people around you are bothering you.
If you are waking up often at 1 Am in the morning, then you should spend some time reflecting on your day-to-day actions and interactions with people because it seems like you are carrying serious feelings of resentment, bitterness. and judgment against other people.
Angels want you to know that you are not alone, and you will be happy soon, all you need to do is to work on yourself.
Waking up at 2 AM
During the night is when our body gets the time to regenerate and rejuvenate without interruptions. It is also the time of the night when our body absorbs nutrients and breaks down the food in our system. Therefore, waking up at 2 AM morning suggests that your diet is full of sugar and caffeinated items.
Try to cut back on such items and incorporate some detox remedies like herbal teas which can remove the toxins from your system. Waking up at 2 AM is not just an indication that you are eating a lot of stimulating food but it is also a sign that you have a lot of toxic thoughts.
Just like waking up at 1 AM, waking up at 2 AM also suggests that on an emotional level you feel suffocated, frustrated, angry, and resentful. It is also suggestive of the fact that you are tiring yourself mentally and physically by being a part of situations that are both time-consuming and require a lot of physical effort.
Waking up at 2 am almost every night probably implies that you have a strong urge for people to like you. You worry a lot about what others think of you and suffer from low self-esteem.
You end up being skeptical about your own abilities, and thinking about the criticism or ignorance from a few people makes you feel depleted.
Look for hints behind waking up at 2 am all of a sudden, look at your mobile to check the exact time, if it reads 2:22 it means that your ascended masters have sent the guardian angels to provide you with the courage and strength so that you overcome these situations in life hassle-free.
You ought to cut down the negative inherited beliefs and ideas you have about yourself that are holding you back from excelling further.
Waking up at 3 AM
Waking up at 3 AM every night is a sign of your spiritual awakening. This is because it is believed that at 3 AM every morning, the connection between the physical world and the spiritual world is the weakest. Therefore, your guardian angel or some other entity from the spirit world who has a message for you will try to communicate with you at that time.
It is strongly believed that at 3 a.m. the connection amongst all the dimensions is at its lowest, so it’s possible that energies are trying to communicate with you. 3 AM in the evening is also known as the “Devil’s hour.” And since the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest at this point, it is also believed that if you wake up at 3 AM for no reason, it means the devil paid you a visit.
It may be negative ones but it’s not that likely. It can definitely be the loved ones who are already dead or your guardian angels. Waking up at this hour of the night also suggests that subconsciously you are experiencing a bout of incredible sadness and that you are very critical of yourself and become incredibly frustrated when things don’t meet your idea of perfection.
As you are becoming more sensitive to energies, your body is waking itself up at 3 am-midnight. Waking up at this time could also signify that you want to be a perfectionist but are unwilling to accept others’ points of view.
You are easily cheesed off when people fail to do what they said and this bothers you a lot.
You are very intolerant to minor mistakes, forget about blunders. You refuse to trust others easily.
Look for clues like seeing 3:33 am hit on your clock when you wake up.
It could mean that your guardian angels are providing you a helping hand to let you out of this dilemma and be bold enough to face failures. It is also suggested that you are on a journey of spiritual awakening and that you should keep on moving forward on the path you have chosen for your personal development.
Waking up at 4 AM
At night when our body is completely relaxed, our lungs are one of the organs which are very actively functioning. Therefore, by waking up at 4 AM every night, our body is trying to tell you that our lungs are having some difficulties in taking deep restorative breaths while we sleep.
This can either be an indication of an underlying disease or infection or be linked to emotional distress. For example, having trouble sleeping at night can also suggest that you are unable to relax your body due to the stress in your life or that you are having trouble accepting certain aspects of your life.
If you find yourself awake at 4 am every night, it can mean that you have undiscovered capabilities lying within you and you need to take responsibility.
It can also imply that a supernatural power may be trying to tell you something, which could lead you to a greater mission in life.
You feel fulfilled and then sidelined by self-doubt after some time. You are in a period of ascending, rising, and making great changes in your life.
You want to make a difference in the lives of others.
Note the time of awakening, you will know when you are being awakened for a message.
Take note of the exact timings if it reads 4:44 am often, then it clearly indicates that you are being guided by your guardian angels at each and every phase you go through in your life, so you need not worry about anything and just focus on becoming a better person with each day that passes by.
