So you have been struggling with waking hours too… uh, what a sinchronicity!!It must be a coincidence. What the hell happens at 3 AM? Is there any particular spiritual meaning in waking up, from 3 to 4, like in daylight? When everything is STILL?
Well, I HEAR you.
Insomnia played a big role in my …should I say “awakening” process? Long term chronic stress exposure (poor lifestyle and traumatic events/complex PTSD) have been among the main factors that have lighted up the spark in my sleepless nights at 3 AM.
My doctor diagnosed a sleep burnout in September 2016. Tremors and shaking legs at night made me feeling powerless. I remember sitting in front of him when time FINALLY broke up with me. That moment when you are told “Your tea flavour will be your next task to choose in a week” (became weeks, months…).
Oups, I don’t even drink tea 🙂
In mythology the witching hour reminds of Hecate, the Goddess of the Dark Night. Symbols: torch, barn owls, keys and crossroad (life choices).
NOW, what about the scientific? is there any relationships between becoming more self-aware and …..cortisol arousal? Hecate appears in Persephone’s myth (Wonder Woman comics testify!!), but much has been lost.
How can stress hormons affect our body and mind? Is this curve at 3 AM – when cortisol level gets higher – a mere coincidence?
Is there any reference to kundalini awakening? Uh, uh ……..
How far can we go? Is this cortisol pattern something missing in our culture?
