Do You Wake Up at the Same Time Every Night? This Could Be the Reason Why!

We have spoken previously about how it can be normal to wake up in the middle of the night, but it should be a natural waking up. However, what does it mean if you wake up at the same time every night and don’t feel good?

A little something called the Chinese Organ or Body Clock may be able to tell you what is going on with your body.

The Chinese Organ Body Clock works on the premise that chi or qi moves through the body at different times during the day. At different times during the day, chi moves from one body system to another to restore and strengthen. (source) This cycle takes 24 hours and each system is given 2 hours of chi charge time.

Thus, if there is a blockage that hinders the flow of energy from organ to organ or system to system, that blockage could force you to wake up. Physical, emotional, or mental health problems can all create blockages, and knowing what might be wrong can help a person feel better in no time.

Chinese Body Clock Explained!

Difficulties Falling Asleep Between 9 PM and 11 PM

During this time, the blood vessels or arteries are active. This means any health problems associated with the immune system, thyroid, adrenals, or metabolism could be keeping you awake. (source)

Stress, paranoia, or confusion could also be keeping you awake. If you find this to be the case, try some meditation, do a bedtime yoga routine, or repeat some calming mantras.

Waking Up Between 11 PM and 1 AM

This time is associated with the gallbladder. This part of the body works to break down all the fat you’ve consumed during the day. Waking up during this time could mean that you need to switch to a diet with healthier fats. (source)

However, if you are experiencing feelings of judgement towards yourself or others, or resentment, that may be keeping you up as well. It is important to let go of the mistakes you or others have made and expel resentment. Acceptance and forgiveness are important.


Waking Up Between 1 AM and 3 AM

The liver is being refreshed during this time, and we all know how important the liver is. Waking up at this time could mean that the liver has too much work to do (too many toxins to deal with). Fixing your diet and reducing alcohol consumption will help. (source)

Anger, guilt, and rage are all associated with this time. An excess of any of these feelings could cause you to wake up. It is important to try to release that anger and try to see clarity in any troubling situation.

Waking Up Between 3 AM and 5 AM

This is the time when the lungs collect oxygen and move it to all the other systems in preparation for a new day. It is also when they remove toxins that may be present. Waking up and coughing during this time could be a sign that you need to consume healthier food or breathe cleaner air. (source)

This time is associated with grief and sadness, and waking up during this time could mean something has happened in your life that makes you feel depressed. It is important to accept these feelings, grieve appropriately, and carry on with your life.

Waking Up Between 5 AM and 7 AM, or Feeling Sick at This Time Period

This time is for cleansing and renewal of the large intestine. This makes perfect sense because most of us have a bowel movement at this time. To help with the process, it is important to drink plenty of water. (source)

Emotionally, this time is associated with a feeling of being stuck, defensive, or impatience about lack of movement or growth in life. This is the perfect time to chant some uplifting morning mantras.

This body clock continues throughout the day and there are some things you can do to help the process along.

M45 - March 18, 2016

While this sounds like it could be reasons for not sleeping or waking up for some, most likely it’s not very reliable information for the majority. Stress and symptoms of it are the big culprits for not falling asleep. That is a given. BUT for most others, the reasons stated are most likely pure guesses by someone who is of a negative mind. Why else would this be only negative emotions that are only listed as reasons to wake up at these time frames?
I know when I started the “awakening process” back in 2012, my times were waking up at 2:17 am everyday for over a month, straight. Nothing in the description listed for that time frame (1 am – 3 am) is remotely correct. My emotions were always positive, feel good, energetic sensations. Many people who I have spoken with that have started “awakening” have gone through the same thing as I have, so I find this article not to be very credible. JMHO

    M45 – I hear what you’re saying but if you look at the organs connected to that time period 1 AM and 3 AM – “The liver is being refreshed during this time”…the liver deals with toxins…it could have been that you were waking up during this time (and feeling positive as you say) because your liver was busy dealing with/processing all these toxins…throughout this “awakening period”…I have gone through a similar process with so-called “positive” and “negative” emotions occurring at different times, depending on what I was going through physically/emotionally at the time. I don’t think this article is wrong, however it does emphasize the so-called “negative” emotions and could have touched upon the “positive” emotions i.e. how the liver cleanses us, opens us up for renewal etc.

So, if you start sleep at 1:00 am? People sleep at different times.

none of it fits me, oh well

What if I go to sleep in the morning ?!

    this is for people who work in the day and sleep in the night….not for day dreamers

This is very interested and ties in somewhat with other things my family is learning at this time. Sleep has been a struggle for several of us. Thank you for sharing.

People with variant angina typically are affected 12am-3am, this could mislead a bigger issue.

Pure, unadulterated pseudoscience.

3:45am for me. every morning. Frustrating.
And yes… what is listed for my timeframe makes sense.
I have had a very bad year emotionally.

I understand this is not for everyone, but reading this makes me want to check into this more.

    Nannette - December 17, 2016

    Every morning I wake 3.45am, nap at 3.45am every day – so strange and would also like to get to the bottom of this.
