The Movement Of Qi And Its Association With Sleep Cycle

More often than not, we are told to swallow some pills if there is something wrong in our bodies, but that does not necessarily fix it; as there may be a deeper, more psychological issue that is manifested into the physical ills we have.

Traditional Chinese Medicine And Qi
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) says that your body runs on a clock with energy highways or meridians called ‘Qi’, which also run everywhere on Earth. The Qi in our bodies transport and keep vitals such as, blood, adrenaline, and other fluids in constant circulation, including carrying emotional elements.

So, when your body is well, it means that your body’s Qi is flowing smoothly, but when you are sick or ill, it means that your Qi is being blocked in some parts of your body or is low in circulation overall.

The Movement Of Qi

Qi is said to move every two hours, stopping at different parts of the body each time, till the organ reaches its optimum level, and then it goes to the next stop. However, when one organ reaches its peak, an organ or body part in the opposite side of the body reaches the lowest level, to balance the act.

The Transfer Of Energy – Yin and Yang

Likewise, when ‘Qi’ passes through, what takes place during those two hours is, Yin – getting energy and Yang – releasing energy. Yes, this is one of the many meanings of Yin-Yang, that black and white circular symbol you so often see.

What Your Sleep Interruption Time Tells You

Based on the above information, the time at which your sleep gets interrupted can predict the probable ailment your body has. They are mentioned below:

Between 11 pm To 1 am

Organ Affected And Association

Gall bladder issues. It is usually associated with being let down or disappointment.

Solution

Need to work on accepting and forgiving yourself, life and others.

Between 1 am To 3 am

Organ Affected And Association

Solution

Accept the situation and channel your anger into something productive.
Between 3 am To 5 am

Organ Affected And Association

Lungs issues. It is related to sadness.

Solution

This means that there is a need for you to let go of these emotions, and reconnect with a more positive side of yourself.
Think of this low mood as a trying reason for you to find a higher purpose in life, and uplift your spirits.
Between 5 am To 7 am

Organ Affected And Association

Large intestine issues. It is associated with emotional blocks such as regret, guilt, lethargy, or being stuck in a constant emotional state.

Solution

Drink enough water.
Do some stretches.
Regulate the times you use the bathroom.
Eventually, set a sleeping routine.
Things are never always what they seem and if we are waking up at odd hours of the night, these could be some reasons for that wake-up call. The key is to interpret and see what these signs mean, try to get to the root of the issue and smoothen the Qi again, beyond just popping a pill to fix everything.
