The Connection Hour – Or, Why do I keep waking up in the middle of the night?

“Sleep is the best meditation.”
~ Dalai Lama

Are you waking up in the middle of the night?  Does it happen on a semi-regular basis?

I don’t think it’s insomnia.  I diagnose this as a psychic connection issue.  If you’re reading this, in fact I’m sure it’s a connection issue. And I know just what to do about it.

For many years (and sometimes even now…) I woke up at around 2am.  It was especially prevalent while I was going through Spiritual Awakening – that whole process of becoming actively more psychically and spiritually connected.

At first it drove me nuts.  I’d wake from a deep sleep, lie in bed uselessly, eyes wide open and fully alert, and by around 4am I’d drift back off to sleep again.

It was my Guides who finally explained to me what was going on…

Somewhere between 2am and 4am, when we’ve had some sleep and are rested and relaxed, is the easiest time for spiritual Guides and other energetic BEings to connect with us psychically.

At 2am we are free of mental clutter.  At 2am there is much less ‘noise’ from other people’s thoughts, from electromagnetic energy or from life in general.  It’s a little like driving your car down an empty freeway in the middle of the night – it’s a safe, fast trip, with no interruptions.

When we are first connecting energetically, it’s always easier to do this in the early hours.  After the connection is made, and we become practiced at it, we’ll find that we are no longer woken up, and that psychic or spiritual knowing and energy become a natural part of our waking hours.

So, what can YOU do if you wake at 2am?

Here are some suggestions based on my own experience, and on the advice of my Guides:

  • Drink some water – hydration always enhances connection
  • Ask to be ‘connected’, and then lie back and relax.  Be aware of any images, names, impressions, ideas or information that comes to you.  You may also find that after inviting connection, you are suddenly sleepy again, and return to the sleep state. (you’ll still be connecting, although it will no longer be a conscious act).
  • Write. Many people find that their best ideas come to them in the middle of the night like this – it’s a form of channelling.  These ideas may be aligned to your talents and skills, they may be creative ideas, or it could just be information that’s relevant to your life right now.  You can keep a pen and paper beside the bed, or get up and go sit at a table – but do use pen and paper rather than a keyboard.
  • Move into meditation for a while.  You can do this in bed, or get up and sit somewhere quiet where you are warm and comfortable.  Once again, be open to any messages, images or impressions you might receive.
  • Do some simple hands-on healing for yourself by channelling energy through your hands and into your body.

Back in your normal life, adopt some spiritual practices, such as a regular meditation time, or time in spiritual reflection.  Yoga, tai chi, exercise and other forms of moving meditation are also good.  So are creative hobbies, and hanging out with like-minded people.

There is an increase in consciousness right now, and enhanced opportunities for conscious connection.  So if you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night for no obvious reason, maybe it’s the Universe, tapping you on the shoulder, and reminding you that it’s time.

You’re here for a reason! Trust in Divine Timing, and in your own ability to connect. Who knows what wonderful energies and ideas you might bring forth…

Much love to you. Bless ♥ xx

  1. Nicole, thank you so much. I have woken several times a night for the last thirty odd years and often got up around two and had a cup of tea and read before going back to bed around four.
    I’m sleeping better now after TOL but I’m still waking two or three times a night so I shall try connecting tonight. I think I’m just a slow learner. xx

  2. Just spent 5 days camping in the outback by myself. Experienced the 2am wake up every night and the most vivid and detailed dreams. Now just to work out what they mean!

  3. I found this really interesting Nicole. I go through stages when all the time and at least occasionally I wake up at 3.14am. It kind of freaks me out a little bit when it happens all the time. What is up with that! Sometimes I wake up and I am facing away from the clock and I lie there for a little while and then it gets the better of me and I have to roll over and look and it will be like 3.16 and I know that it must have been right on 3.14 when I woke. I feel like there must be a message there, but I just have no idea what it can be?? Weird right?

  4. i’ve been doing this on and off for about 20 years – lately it’s not very often but there’s usually there’s really clear messages when it happens – interesting! thanks for the illumination about this. sx

  5. I’ve never heard that explanation before, most interesting. More often than not I wake up through the night and have found that listening to a meditation CD does wonders for getting me back to sleep again. I get a lot of vivid dreams too, but I put that down to being too hot in bed!

  6. Even though I don’t recall dreams often, when I DO dream I’ve recently been experiencing an increased ability to do things like read phrases, names, signs, and wake up remembering them. I’ve also recently dreamed the husband of a co-worker (who has passed on) was leaving me sketches for some reason… and I was able to put exactly what I saw down on paper the next day to deliver to my co-worker. Kind of cool. I’d like to experience it more often. But what does it all mean?

  7. Hey Nicole, – your time is 2? mine is 3:15 always 3:15. It’s almost like an alarm going off, or a tap on the shoulder. It’s always spirit at that time…those are the times I can fall right back to sleep. Anyway, thanks for the post

  8. Every single night, I wake up around 02:12 am (or I wake up a little before that but whenever i check the time it is 2:12). I was even scared to mention this as it’s like a coincidence, but it has been happening for so long that I was getting worried about it. I stay awake until around 4 am, then can go back to sleep. I will try your advice. Thank you for giving me an explanation <3

  9. I’m so in love with this post, I am a 25 year old women who struggles to eat well/eat at all, recently I’ve gone down a holistic method and started yoga and meditating all my worrying has seemed to go (almost) and I spent the early hours of 2-4am reading this blog, I am beyond happy that I have read this and I am thankful for your blog it’s really made me excited and confirmed that going down this path is 100% the correct thing to do and I feel very elighted.

  10. How do you connect with your guides? When you mention what you learned from them, how did you get to that point? trying to get messages from mine and no luck. This waking up stuff is happening a lot.

  11. So glad I found your post today, I’ve been waking up at the same time for the last month or so. Last night I woke about 1 then had an amazing dream where I was shown a list on a board, and was shown I’m passing all the stages off the list. Then I woke up and felt really urged to look at the clock. It was 4am again! Feels so great to be connecting.

  12. I don’t really wake up, I just can’t seem to fall asleep before 4 am. It doesn’t matter what time I go to bed either.

  13. Thank you for this article. I have experienced many similar situations as the ones you described. I call the flow of ideas and thoughts “the cascade” or “water fall of inspiration”. I get so much clarity and guidance. I believe in spiritual guides and my daily prayer is for guidance; thus, I think I receive in accordance.

  14. A year or two ago, I woke up in the night with a message for a friend in my mind. I saved it as a text and sent it the next morning. It said that it was necessary for her to do a couple of things. She was suspicious of my ‘guidance’ as she referred to it, but eventually followed the advice. The second item was only completed shortly before her admission to the Royal Marsden, where she died soon after. That second item also took a ‘reminder’ that came to me in the early morning, which she responded to immediately, to my surprise.
    Found this page by searching for “waking up in the night with a message for someone”, most results to do with night terrors! Thank God for yours.
