If you keep waking up at 2:22 every night, then there might be more to it than just mere coincidence.
After all, if it happens once or twice in a row, then it could just be your internal body clock getting into a weird pattern.
But if it happens over and over again, there is probably something more meaningful to it.
So much of the true meaning depends on your specific circumstances and the context in which it happens.
However, some common themes throw themselves up, and some compelling reasons why your body might decide to wake you up at this particular time.
Cosmic Signals Of Waking Up At 2:22
One reason you might be waking up at this exact time every night is you are receiving a cosmic signal from the universe.
This particular one is number 222, which relates specifically to relationships.
It often has to do with family relationships and domestic connections, signifying a need to strike a new balance with the people closest to you.
It can also mean a change in an existing relationship is about to occur and that you need to adjust to a new way of thinking about someone in your life.
This might be a work colleague becoming a close friend or reuniting with a long lost friend or family member.
Most cosmic signals are less invasive than waking you up in the middle of the night, usually taking the form of noticing the number during the day.
When it is disturbing your sleep, it is far more urgent, and you should take extra care to pay attention to this area of your life.
Waking Up At 2:22 When The Veil Is Thinnest
We are all beings of dual nature. Not only do we exist in the material or physical world, but we also exist as spiritual entities with deep soul connections to the universe and people in it.
These two worlds are mostly kept separate, meaning that we have to purposefully bridge the gap using practices like meditation to inhabit the spiritual mind space.
However, the veil that separates these two worlds is not constant.
It is strongest during the light of day, when the concerns of the material world like money, work, food and all the practicalities of living take precedence.
The veil is thinnest at night, specifically between 2 am and 3 am when the majority of people (in a given area) are attuned to the frequency of the spiritual.
Finding yourself on the spiritual plane, not by any method you tried but automatically is not unusual. When we are asleep, we leave the physical plane and inhabit the astral plane.
We call this dreaming and it is the most common experience most people have of their higher self.
Revision Of Days Lessons
Most of the time you will sleep through this hour, content to dream, and work through the lessons of the day in that way.
Sometimes you will wake up, and if this is happening constantly there is probably a good reason.
Something is bothering you on a spiritual level, so much so that the temporary merging of the two worlds is bringing you stressful feelings and waking you up.
This is most obvious if you are waking up at 2:22 am after a bad or simply vivid dream.
If it leaves you feeling emotionally exhausted and mentally fuzzy it’s because whatever you were dealing with became too much for you.
Think of it like a fuse. When too much electricity travels through you your body blows a fuse, severing your connection to the source of that energy.
This results in you waking up.
This, by the way, is one of the reasons we find it so hard to sleep when we are stressed.
Even though it is counter-productive as a lack of sleep will only stress us out, even more, leading to even less sleep!
It’s a terrible cycle and one that is difficult to break out of. Not impossible, mind you.
How To Stop Waking Up At 2:22
In order to solve these kinds of spiritually sourced sleep problems, you need to take a two-pronged approach.
The first prong is relatively easy and involves sleep hygiene.
Sleep hygiene is all about providing yourself with an environment that is most suitable for getting to sleep and staying asleep.
Ensuring that your bedroom is free of clutter, dark enough and that your sheets are clean and fresh are good places to start.
Stop all screen time in the hour before you sleep, and make sure you are only using your bed for bedtime activities.
You can also improve the zen quality of your bedroom with lavender scents, fresh bed linens, and free the space of clutter and clothes.
The Second Prong Is Harer
There is something bothering you spiritually, and because you are waking up at 2:22 on the dot it likely has something to do with your relationships.
You probably know – or suspect you know – what is bothering you already.
If it has started to affect your sleep it is time to tackle the issue head-on and break its power over you.
This might involve a difficult conversation with a loved one, or putting yourself out there in a bid to find love.
It could be loneliness, or it could be that you are stretching yourself too thin between too many people.
It is different for everybody, but the effect is the same.
While in the short term it might be enough to just look after your sleep hygiene, use lavender oils, and take herbal sleep remedies.
In the medium and long term, your sleep will only improve if you deal with whatever is stressing you out.
If you are having trouble discovering why you are waking up at 2:22, then keep a dream journal.
When you do wake up spend some time to really think about it then and there.
The answer will present itself sooner rather than later.
