Waking Up Between 3 am and 5 am? Here’s What It Means

Every passing hour has a certain significance as each number holds a value, meaning, symbol or synchronicity. If you're waking up between 3 am and 5 am in particular, you're likely in the midst of a spiritual awakening. Instead of going back to sleep, you might want to pay attention to your thoughts and feelings at this time as they may be very revealing.

Here is the significance of this time of the night and why your body may be waking you up on purpose.

You May Have Unmet Spiritual Needs

Waking up between 3am and 5am without an alarm has something to do with the energy meridian that runs through the lungs. Stress, grief, or sadness can weigh heavy and cause an imbalance of lung energy.

This can in itself be a message. It might be your soul trying to express its unmet spiritual needs. It may be asking for you to connect back to it so that you can find inner rest. Think of it as your lungs literally reaching out for help and for your awareness.

You May Be Receiving A Message From A Higher Power

You might want to seriously consider that waking up at this time is sign from a higher power. This force is trying send you a message from the other side, so pay attention to what it has to say.

Try to remember what you just dreamed about, or note down the first thoughts that come to mind. Remember that the veil between you and the other side is thin at this time and makes it easier to receive guidance from a spiritual perspective. It is also referred to as the witching hour, so it makes sense to receive a call from a spirit.

You May Be Receiving Guidance

If you are waking up at this time on a regular basis, you may be needing guidance to get you on the right track with your purpose and soul's mission. We are all a part of this world for a reason, and if you are close to yours, you might just be needing a little clarity.

During this time period, your mind has easy access to the hypnagogic state. This is a state of consciousness that is in between being awake and being asleep. In a sense you're awake but you're not quite grounded in reality, so you're able to access your subconscious and the dream world without being quite asleep. Being in between these two words can activate your clairvoyant perception.

Waking Up At 3 Am

The number 3 is associated with the angels. The angels sometimes try to send a signal that transmits love and good vibrations into you. They also sometimes try to connect with your essence.

For example, if you see the number 3, three times or wake up at 3:33 am, you get the value of 9 (3 + 3 + 3) which indicates that a blessing is coming your way. 333 is a number that indicates growth and breaking of barriers.

Waking Up At 4 AM

This is the time at which your body temperature is lowest, so you may be waking up because your body is either too hot or too cold. However, your mind may also be imbalanced and lost in duality, such as between being cold or hot.

The number 4 is also a conscientious number with a focus on long-term security. In numerology, the number 4 may be leading you to focus. Maybe you've been trying to do too much at once and it's preventing you from building one solid foundation to stand on.

Ask yourself if you've been too critical of yourself lately. Number 5 has been the symbol of love and marriage since ancient times. This includes self-love. Trust yourself, and your process, and the rest will follow.

They say that if the number 5 appears to you, your guardian angel may also have a message about your love life. It is also the angel number for loyalty. Feed yourself and your relationships and they will nourish you back.

You May Be Given An Opportunity For Manifesting

Since 3:00AM and 5:00 AM is a time of spiritual awakening that allows for close contact with the other side, it may also be the ultimate time being for manifestation. You are being given an opportunity for a powerful co-creation so ask directly for what it is that you want.

Such a powerful communication with the Spirit can be magnetic in attracting incredible blessings into your life.
