Through our magazine we have experienced many weird conditions, some paranormal, normal or magical. Right now we are going to focus on our sleeping problems and what it means when we persistently wake up – or have other sleep-related issues, at the same time. But, First of all, we have to ask you. Do you experienced troubled sleep? Do you often wake up in the night? If yes, then at what time do you regularly wake up?
Time and our Energy Meridians.
Few words first. Our body is full of channels through which energy is directed to our whole body. These channels are called meridians. Some of them are much more important as they carry most of this energy – called Chi – in traditional Chinese medicine. What needs to be clarified is that these meridians – when troubled- need proper healing with Acupuncture or other kind of practice which helps Chi flow better – like Chi Qong or medication from professionals of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Do you Often Wake Up in certain hours?
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), every Meridian is activated every couple of hours. This is done to achieve balance in our energy matrix and maintain proper health and stamina. However, if a meridian is troubled, then Chi cannot flow through it. Hence, symptoms may manifest when the channel is activated.
One of the problems usually related to meridian issues is troubled sleep, or repeatedly waking up, during those certain hours where the associated meridians are activated.
Let’s take a look at all possible times, when you can encounter troubled sleep. Remember that if your country uses ‘summer daylight saving time’ you need to rule this extra hour out.
