We all have heard of saying that if you wake up between 2 am to 3 am without any reason it means a ghost is staring at you. Many of us lost our sleep after reading this somewhere. Some people consider this 3:00 AM to be the spirit’s time to communicate with us. Others think it’s the devil’s mark. Some even think that when you wake up at this time, someone is watching you. But if someone were to be watching you, how would they watch you if there were no windows or doors in the room you were in? There are many superstitions for what 3:00 AM could be. We going to tell you the real meaning of this worldwide time myth.
Get Ready to Read all of the possible explanations of this saying or the fact.
This is the actual saying which is quite popular.
While we are sleeping soundly, we often dream. While we dream, we are unaware of our surroundings always. Unaware of what could be lurking in the closet or under our bed, beside us in our covers or blanket. When our eyes flutter open and we check the time on either our watch, cell phone, alarm clock, or simply whatever thing we have lying around that has the time displayed on it. But knowing the time doesn’t really matter… right? we rub your eyes and blink a few times, adjusting to the darkness of the room.
According to science & psychology.
We hear the sounds of floorboards creaking or the sound of pitter patter along the ground. I’m sure it’s just a mouse, we think . Maybe it’s just a mouse or a large rat. A very large rat indeed to be making such loud footsteps. We dare not look over the edge of our bed. For You, You are paralyzed in your fear. You’re just scaring yourself. Enough already with this foolishness, you tell yourself. But is it foolishness? Or is there a reason to be scared?
Are there monsters under the bed, waiting to snatch our feet and pull us under the bed when we get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom or get a drink of water?
You do not believe in monsters. Those were stories that mother or father told you years ago as a child. The boogeyman, sandman, and other monster stories were just stories to give you a spook… right? Yeah, right. Monsters aren’t real, we think and chuckle at our childish fears. But wait- what was that? That pitter of feet seemed to be getting closer.
We squeeze our eyes tightly shut as we hear the long, loud screech of your door creaking open ever so slowly. Was that a giggle we just heard? No, of course not. Mice don’t giggle. Neither do rats. You’re being delusional, you open your eyes slowly and stare at your ceiling.
According to the Psychology-
When we look at the clock sometimes time is between 2am to 3am. Psychology says it’s nothing. It is our own thoughts which makes us imagine such creepy things & kill our own sleep & comfort.
According to the Science.
Generally, you’d be in your REM sleep cycle during the time bracket. Your heart rate, cardiac pressure, breathing rate and arterial pressure becomes irregular at this time which is why you may feel anxious when you suddenly wake up at those odd hours.
As for the eerie chill that a lot of people talk about, it can be explained with the following fact: At the time of REM sleep, the body temperature is not well-regulated. Therefore, organisms become sensitive to the temperatures beyond the thermoneutral zone which is the temperature tolerance zone of a warm-blooded organism
According to Paranormal Experts.
According to the Paranormal experts, People wakes up anywhere from 2:00am-3:00am because that is when our world quiets & slows down and it becomes the easiest time for spirit to reach us and communicate with us. Spirit uses a lot of energy when they contact us in this dimension, so many spirits prefer to make contact when it doesn’t take as much energy as it does during other time periods.
The 3am time slot is regarded by paranormal experts as a time when pure evil – either demons or entities from the spirit world – make their presence felt.
Many of us will wake up in the middle of the night, either from a bad dream or without any reason at all, feeling a chill in the air or a worrying feeling in your gut.
The thinking behind the specific time of 3am is that it is a deliberate mocking of the death of Jesus Christ, who, according to ancient writing, died in the middle of the afternoon – at 3pm.
Just like the turning of the cross upside down is a deliberate lack of humility or respect to Christ, the inversion of 3pm to 3am is thought to be demons using the opposite hour to torment humans.
The number three is also synonymous with Christianity – the Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Psychics believe that the veil between our world and the spirit world is lifted at this time and our relaxed state of minds – especially in a state of deep sleep – may be more susceptible to paranormal activity.
‘Legend has it that if you wake up at exactly 3:00am for no reason in a state of terror then the Devil has paid you a visit literally or in your dreams.’
Mysterious Time For Natural Death.
It is found that time between 2am to 3am is also mysterious for deaths as most of the natural deaths which occurs in the hospitals and home beds occurs between 2am to 3am. According to indian cultures if some is dying between this time then his/her soul is going to heaven.
Witching hour is the occult belief that refers to the time on which creatures such as witches, demons, and ghosts are thought to appear and to be at their most powerful positions and at which black magic is thought to be at its most effective because the period from 3AM to 4 AM is the span where there are no Catholic church services and prayers which are marked by the Canonical hours which are also three regular hours in length, but in modern times that fact is mostly forgotten so the terms is usually used to refer to midnight and 2 AM recognized as the witching hour by some neopagans.
Adversely, the terms Devil’s hour applies to the hour of 3 AM or 3:15, the suggestion being that this is an inversion of the time at which Christ died at Calvary.
The terms may be used to refer to any arbitrary time of bad luck, or in which something bad has a greater likelihood to occur (e.g., a baby crying) Source
According to Astrology.
Astrology says, at the end of 3am, time of god starts & that is why people recommends to wake up at 4am and remember the god and meditate & start your day.
