We are winding the clock back 5 years. It's 3am.
I wake. I have a huge amount of information in my head and I can't get back to sleep.
It runs over and over and over. I find myself imagining conversations with people, thinking of people that have passed away, situations that did not come out the way I wanted them to, and then there is the information. The ideas. Trotting through my head. Some really amazing pieces of jewellery I could make. Some articles that would be good. Some jobs I need to do tomorrow. The amazing money spinner idea that could pay all the bills and make me a millionaire.
I toss, turn, stress out. And wake in the morning, knackered.
The millionaire idea? Gone. Jewellery? Gone. Article? Gone.
The feeling like I have had a herd of creatures passing through my head in search of a waterhole... 100% present. Argh.
I plod on with my day. Remembering at some stage that I saw my grandfather and he told me I would 'see' many things.
The millionaire idea? Still gone. Bugger. I rehydrate. (And do it all again the following night)
Coming back to present tense, medically speaking - the 3am wake up call can be linked to your blood sugar and adrenals. So if this commonly happens to you - look at your diet. However if you have all the diet boxes ticked and this still happens, bringing with it all the mind traffic...
Other key factors in restlessness/early waking can include:
Things that can help promote sleep are:
In extreme circumstances, say night terrors, for example, a house clearing or past life clearing may be required. While this might seem a bit weird, I can assure you it has been very beneficial to many people. House clearing often has many unexpected benefits, not limited to better sleep - it can often help relationships between partners or children, can sometimes help the house to be warmer, and life can just feel lighter. Commonly my audience members go home after a healing show and sleep like a log. Why? Because often the stress they were carrying has been cleared, and because it's energy work and it travels over distance - their pillow has cleared too.
Possibilities are endless once we take a look.
