The human body has its own internal mechanisms and clocks which control the work and function of the organs in the body.
The Chinese medicine believes that the human body dedicates different energies to different organs within the 24-hour cycle. Therefore, in case you wake up at the same time every night, it is a sign that the energy in the body is somehow obstructed, physically or spiritually, and the natural balance of the body is disrupted.
The following list reveals the wake-up times and their link to the body organs, which will help you discover the cause of your symptoms:
9 pm To 11 pm
This is the time when the endocrine system restores its balance and the enzymes are refilling.
The function of the endocrine system is to control the metabolism and the hormones, so if you wake up or have problems to fall asleep at this time, it might be due to poor diet, a heavy meal late in the day, an anxiety due to events that happened throughout the day or worries about the next day.
11 pm To 1 am
The yin energy converts into yang at this time, so the regular waking up between 11 pm and 1 am might be due to some resentment you are stuck with.
Yang energy is very active, so you need to be calm, positive, full of love, and keep energy for the next day in order to solve this problem. Waking up at this time might also be caused by the inability of the gallbladder to properly break down the consumed unhealthy fats.
1 am To 3 am
This is the time for detoxification and renewal of the body, the liver releases the toxins and the blood is fresh and clean. Waking up between 1 am and 3 am might be a result of negative formations like frustration and anger, or some problems with the function of the liver.
3 am To 5 am
The lungs are undergoing repair and flood the body with oxygen at this time and the body should be warm enough to speed up the function of the body.
From a spiritual side of view, this might be a symptom of grief and sadness, so you might benefit from some breathing techniques.
Also, this might be a sign of ascension or a process of an increasing of the vibrational levels, which might lead to sensitivity to unusual sounds, appetite changes, feeling cold, or lucid dreaming.
5 am To 7 am
The large intestine is extremely active at this time, and it breaks down toxins and removes them from the body. The reasons for waking up at this time include poor nutrition or eating too late.
