For the past three weeks or so I have been having these strange experiences at night and can’t wrap my brain around why it’s been happening. And so I thought that I would turn to you, dear tribe…
Maybe your guys know what’s going on.
See, ll my life I have had this particular relationship with my dreams and from that I learned to keep a regular sleep schedule, at least as much as possible. This enables me to avoid nightmares and helps me receive better guidance through my dreams. So typically, I go to sleep around 11 o’clock after doing yoga or meditation. Normally, I sleep pretty well all night and wake up to the sound of my alarm around 7:00 am.
Lately my night routine has been very different.
I have found myself to wake up once.. every night. Yes. Every night. At first I didn’t really give it too much thought. Some nights I would wake up, quickly run to the bathroom and then jump right back to bed and fall asleep after a while of tossing and turning. But then it started to happen e.v.e.r.y night. After a week of this middle-of-the-night-awakening, I started to observe the experience more carefully and realized that several elements repeated themselves night after night.
Here’s what I’ve observed
First, I noticed that it always happens around the same time. I always wake up somewhere around 3 am. And it’s not your normal wake up where you gently drift out of your dreams and open your eyes slowly. No. It’s more like one second I’m deep asleep and the next my eyes are wide open and I feel this energy in my body which keeps me from going back to sleep. It’s as if my body is on a caffeine buzz … at 3 am. Not that cool.
Second, my electronic devices act strangely. This doesn’t happen every night but when it does it kind of freaks me out. For example, this morning, my phone just started to make all these notification sounds although my phone is always always always on silent. And guess what time it was when I finally managed to grab it and make it stop ? Sure, it was 3:14 am. Last Tuesday, when I woke up around 3:30, I found my computer on my desk across the room starting up… by itself. I had just opened my eyes when I heard the ‘Ahhhh’ my Mac does when it starts.. I just sat there in my bed staring at it, puzzled.
Third, these strange smells linger around. This element is new, I only experienced it a few times in the last days. When I wake up, I have this crazy energy in my body and simply can’t go back to sleep so, I usually go to the kitchen and make myself a cup of tea. Lately, when I come back to my room I catch these smells that seem to linger in one place and that are completely unknown to me. Last night close to my bedroom’s door was this lemon smell mixed with something like tobacco which is so strange since none of my roommates nor I do smoke. Where was that coming from?
Am I going crazy ? Help !
Needless to say, that I’m a little puzzled by all of this. I have tried expressing gratitude for this experience which made me see more sunrises than I ever have in my entire life (hey, just being positive here). I have tried to meditate, do yoga and connect with Self in order to get some guidance about this situation, but nothing seems to help. I have seen my doctor about this issue and several tests later, I now know that nothing is wrong with my health.
I am turning to you guys
This is why I decided to share this with you guys hoping that some of you might have a better understanding of all of this. Perhaps you have experienced this before or someone you know has? or maybe you’ve heard or read about it or simply have a hypothesis as to why this has been happening to me. I would love to hear from you beautiful souls. I humbly reach out to you for help, any advice would be more than welcome.
Lots of love
