Do You Wake Up Every Night at The Same Time? This is What it Means!
Waking up in the middle of the night is a normal thing if it happens once or twice. But, what about waking up at a specific time every night and not feeling good? Is this normal, or our body is trying to tell us something?
The answer to this question lies in the Body Clock, or the Chinese Organ.
This Body-Energy Clock functions on the premise that Qi or Chi moves through the human body at different times during the day. Qi moves from one body system to another at different time during the day, strengthening and restoring the optimal function of the system. Each system has two hours of Qi charge time, and the whole cycle takes 24 hours.
But, in case the energy flow from system to system is hindered by some blockage, it will wake you up. Mental, emotional, or physical health issues can all cause these blockages, and knowing what may be wrong can help you improve your condition and well being in no time.
