Worried. What Does Waking Up At 3:20am Mean


I normally don't believe in these types of "spiritual experiences" and just kind of laugh it off. There's so many movies out there and it's just hard for me to believe. Maybe I just feel like if I don't acknowledge it, it doesn't exist. At least in my little bubble.

Last night really scared me.

I've been waking up for months almost every night at 3:20 AM. Sometimes a few times but almost always one of those times is 3:20.

I try not to think to much of it and just go back to sleep.

Last night I woke up to a horrible smell... I just remember it being horrible but it could have been a sulfur smell as I've read in other stories but I'm not 100% sure. It definitely wasn't pleasant. But as soon as I woke up and looked at my phone to see what time it was the smell was gone and it was exactly 3:20 AM. This is the first time I've ever woken up to a smell and it really freaked me out.

Sometimes I wake up around 3:20AM like 3:18AM or 3:22 AM but last night was exactly 3:20AM.

Another thing is that it doesn't only happen in one place. I've visited friends or stayed in hotels and it's also happened. And I'm also not always alone. Just this weekend I was in a different state and I was sleeping in the same bed with a friend of mine and I woke up at 3:22AM.

I normally have to get up, turn lights on or TV, go to the restroom and then lay back down to calm myself and go to sleep.

I know I've been stressed a lot lately and I have children (teenagers) and also going through a divorce, could stress do this?

Please help. It's really starting to get to me.

Divorce is similar to dealing with a death, no mater if you did the walking or the other did, the loss is still present at some point. And dealing with kids makes it 10x's more stressful due to feelings that make you responsible for the kids loss also failure and abandonment & regret that kick in when dealing with their emotional state. My boys were 6 and 3 during my "rebirth" as I call it. This alone makes you vulnerable & wide open to negativity that will make you question your sanity and mess with you until you are questioning your basic daily decisions for yourself and kids. I think you should go back to your roots. What ever beliefs you were raise on fall back on. It will give you grounds to remove the negative and maybe get you some support from others as well. In the mean time I would put (sea) salt in each corner of my room and on the window frames up top and door frames. I open my bible to Psalms 91 and place it by the bed. Then fill a glass of water and place it next to the bible. In the morning remove the glass and pour it out while saying, "as I pour I rid all evil and command it be gone". And also sulfur smells like a rotten eggs or the smell of the marshy lands right before you reach the beach. The coast has high concentrations of sulfur in their natural water which is why it always tastes funny even out of the faucet. Hope this helps and comfort finds you soon. God Bless

It still continues to happen, although not every night. But just last night I woke up at 3:21 to hearing a door creaking. I thought someone was in my room. When I got up to look around I saw my sons light in his room on but he said he didn't go in my room.

I do have a lot of stress at the moment, single income, single parent, going through divorce and just started a 2nd job but it's been happening for quite some time.

I think I will definitely try the salt and also try the saying. Sometimes I don't feel strong at all so maybe that when it happens most.

As for the smell, I don't remember dreaming about anything that night.

Thank you for both of your posts. It helps tremendously. I will try to calm myself and maybe read or try to clear my mind.

The smell of sulfer can be some one putting a jinx, hex on you.

The finger print. Is to ask your self?
Are you getting headaches, have pain in your body, feel depressed for no reason, have a string of bad
Luck following you. Done a taboo.

For issues, like that people do uncrossing.
Do a cleansing for them self and the home.
Then create a barrier: use kosher or sea salt at
Windows, or around the home.

The spiritual window aka: called the witches hour
Is 2-3. This is when the human subconscious is
Quite susceptible to pos and neg.
If you are strong. Just say you break all curses.
Ad you only receive and send love and
Light. You must believe and visualize this.

I've had this. I do believe it's stress.
Once you're stressed your body starts dripping adrenaline in to your body. That's when you'll start having abnormal sleeping patterns, perhaps even stop sleeping for a little while.

Now, if you start waking up at around that time, your body will begin getting use to it and it will become a new sleeping cycle for you, just like when you were a teen and you wouldn't sleep until 3am and wake up at 12, then when it was back to school you'd re-adjust yourself.

That's what you have to do. Re-adjust. Just keep telling yourself you won't wake up during the night. Try to calm the stress down as much as you can, we don't want you to get sick!

As for the smell... Could it be something carrying on from a dream? Do you remember what you dreamt that night? I know I've had carry ons from dreams to when I wake up, it's weird!

If I'm absolutely wrong then I have no idea what it is. Also, if you haven't felt a presence you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
Best of luck!
