It is certainly normal if you wake up during the night, but only if it is natural. But, what about if you wake up every night at the same time and don’t feel well?
The Chinese body or organ clock can answer this question.
The Chinese Body Organ Clock assumes that qi and chi move in the body at different times in the day. So chi moves around one system of the body to another one to strengthen it and restore its functions. This phase lasts 24 hours and every system of the body has two hours to charge with chi.
So if you wake up in the middle of the night it means that there is a blockage in the system that inhibits the energy flow. Mental, emotional and physical health issues may create blockages and recognizing what’s wrong is the most important step for making you feel better.
This is how the Chinese body clockworks.
Trouble sleeping between 9 and 11 PM
In this period the arteries and blood vessels are active. So, if you have trouble sleeping during this time you might have health issues linked to the thyroid gland, metabolism, immune system or the adrenals.
Also, paranoia, confusion or stress could be the cause for sleeplessness. If this is the case, you should try bedtime yoga, calming mantras or meditate.
Waking up between 11 PM and 1 AM
This period is linked to the gallbladder. The gallbladder breaks down all the fats you consumed the day. So waking up during this time may mean that you should choose a healthier diet with less fat.
But, if you feel resentment or you are judgmental towards the others or yourself, this can also be the cause for your sleeplessness. Do not judge yourself and the others around you and don’t hold grudges. Be forgiving and accept the things you can’t change.
