Did you know that the perfect time for an intuitive download may actually be the middle of the night? During the day, our busy schedules and to-do lists take up a lot of our mental energy (not to mention our physical energy!). Even when we’re open to receiving intuitive messages, they can get lost in the daily shuffle of text messages, school drop-offs, and work deadlines.

3am is the time when the veil between the physical world and the spiritual world is at its thinnest. The hour between 3am and 4am has been referred to as “the witching hour” in folklore for hundreds of years, and these midnight hours are an extraordinary time for you to connect to your Divine Guidance Team, release your blocks, understand how you are feeling energetically, and recognize whether you’re undergoing an energetic upgrade. 

In this episode, you’re going to learn why the darkest hours can lead to the most illuminating messages, how to receive these incredible intuitive downloads and energetic upgrades, and how to take full advantage of the divine gifts that are trying to reach you!

Start unlocking your spiritual gifts. Listen now to discover: 

  • Why the spiritual realm likes us to be tired — and how fatigue can enhance your spiritual work
  • How illness and jet lag can create powerful opportunities for deeper spiritual work 
  • An invitation that will help you recognize your own 3am wake-up calls, so you can amplify your spiritual connection

This Week’s Invitation:

 Reflect back and notice the 3m wake-up calls that have appeared in the past that you may not have recognized. Then set the intention to be open to receiving those 3:00 AM, wake up calls when it is divine timing for them to arrive.


[00:00:00] Well, hello my dear ones. How are we doing on this? Fine, fine day. It’s finally warming up in the Netherlands. I’ve talked to a lot of people. In a lot of different geographic spaces, all talking about the Cold Spring. They have had, and we have definitely had a cold spring here and I tend to run very cold, so I am so ready for warmth and sun and I really do feel in my heart that I will eventually live.

On a place in the planet where it’s just warm and sunny all year round. I do sense that time is coming, but until then, I feel grateful to live in a place that has four seasons and in Holland it doesn’t get super hot in the summer or super cold in the winter like it does where I grew up in South Dakota in the United States. But, it’s

[00:01:00] cloudy a lot here and it’s rainy a lot here, and it’s cool a lot here. So when you get that warm, sunny cloudless day, it feels like a renaissance. It feels magical and you feel like there’s something wrong with you if you’re not outside enjoying it. And there’s something so lovely about that.

It makes all of those dark, cloudy days worth it. And speaking of magic, we have a spectacular episode for you today and it really, I got the inspiration for it from an episode I recently released called The Five Stages of an Energy Upgrade. And in that episode I talk about. The 3:00 AM wake up call, and I received a lot of amazing feedback about that episode. Lots of people going through upgrades. I loved getting this feedback, so keep it coming.

[00:02:00] And I do wanna share one listener review coming from SM Laney, A 21, and she says the episode on the five stages of an energy upgrade was exactly what I needed to hear today.

Thank you, Allison. You’re welcome. I already instinctively knew these, but there’s something powerful about hearing someone. Else articulate the stages sequentially as you spoke. I was mentally reviewing my life and I was able to pick out certain times and identify the stage I was in. Well done. also the reminder to get down to business doing or being or you’re gonna head backwards was exactly what I needed to be reminded of today. Oh my gosh. Thank you so much for this review. I really feel like from my heart, I was connected to yours as I was recording that episode, and so if you ever feel. Like I am giving you content

[00:03:00] that is exactly what you needed to hear on a given day. I would love to know about it. Head over to the show notes. There’s a link to leave a listener review, and I will read your beautiful words on the air. All right, let’s get to today’s very juicy episode.

In today’s episode, I define what the 3M wake up call is, why it’s here to help you and how to take. Full advantage of the divine gifts that are trying to reach you. We’ll end on an invitation that will have you recognizing your 3:00 AM wake up calls so you can amplify your spiritual connection to receive the intuitive downloads and energetic upgrades that are trying to reach you.

So be sure to stay with me until the end.

Today we’re talking about the 3:00 AM Wake Up call. I love the title of this episode because there is something magical

[00:05:00] about around the 3:00 AM time, and that is when the veil is the thinnest between the non-physical spiritual world and the physical world where we find ourselves. Living in, and it’s a extraordinary time to connect to your divine guidance team to heal and to recognize how your energy might be shifting or changing to recognize what stage of an energy upgrade you might be going through.

And the reason why. This happens at 3:00 AM is because. If it happened at 3:00 PM or 10:00 AM or 12:00 PM or even 10:00 PM we are in our waking day. We are working, we are raising kids, we are getting our

[00:06:00] groceries, we are plugged into our devices, and it’s very difficult for us to recognize the taps that are sometimes very subtle coming in from the spiritual realm.

On the other hand, at 3:00 AM it is dark. It is typically quiet. We are usually in our bed. We don’t have the everyday distractions. And what are we at 3:00 AM typically, we are tired. So that’s why the 3:00 AM wake up calls can be very annoying because all we wanna do is sleep. And this is coming from loads of experience.

My gosh, have I been awake at 3:00 AM and so many times just like willing myself to go back to sleep. But the reason why, The spiritual realm likes us tired, and why it is in your best interest

[00:07:00] to do spiritual work when you’re fatigued. It’s because one, your guard is down, your thinking mind might be a little bit slower, a little bit more quieter because you’re tired.

So that resistance that you sometimes have up around, you know, protecting you against. Receiving messages from the heart, those barriers, they are not as fortified because you’re tired. So those divine messages can get through the barriers that we put up that protect us from our own intuitive messages and why we have barriers put up.

Well, those are our wounds. Our wounds telling us from past lifetime trauma often, but from ancestral trauma. That says it’s not safe to follow your heart. The safe thing to do is what your parents told you, what your, what authorities tell you what earns a steady paycheck following our heart

[00:08:00] can lead us in directions that just might not be safe.

So we put the barriers up, but when we, we are tired, those barriers are not as fortified. The other powerful thing to do whilst tired is heal, heal those really painful emotions because it doesn’t feel as painful when you are tired to release a big trauma wound.

Let’s get into for a minute how to recognize when you are receiving a 3:00 AM wake up call that has a spiritual gift for you, and that’s what typically it is. It’s a gift that wants to come through in the form of a message or a healing, or an upgrade or a calibration to your energy. And the classic 3:00 AM wake up call finds you getting

[00:09:00] tapped awake around 3:00 AM and for no apparent reason, you just get tapped awake.

Now when that happens, you have a choice. You can try to will yourself to get back to sleep. You can grab your iPad, you can be pissed off. Those are reactions I’ve had. Or you can recognize it for the gift it is. The divine is waking me, so I have I’m, I’m here in the middle of the night. With the closest connection I can get the most detailed, intuitive messages.

I can heal, I can receive all the spiritual gifts that I am meant to receive. So just being in recognition that you are being woken up by the divine to receive something, puts you in an entirely different energy than, ah, crap, it’s 3:00 AM I’m gonna be so exhausted at

[00:10:00] work tomorrow. Right? And so what you can do is just ask. Hi yourself, you know, sink into the body. Is this a 3:00 AM wake up call or the middle of the night? It doesn’t have to be exactly at 3:00 AM is this a middle of the night? Wake up call and see if you get Yes. Now it is likely. You are gonna get some form of yes, every time you ask that question in the middle of the night because your divine guidance team has your attention so you can turn any sleepless situation into an opportunity.

And that, like I said, being fatigued is an asset. It’s a, it’s a thing to help you to connect to the spiritual realm. So anytime you’re awake in the middle of the night can turn into a time to connect to your divine guidance team and see what wants to come through for you. But then there are other times

[00:11:00] as well where we are in a heightened state of a 3:00 AM wake up call.

The way I’m defining it, and that is during sickness, when we are sick. Often the, our divine guidance teams are wanting to connect to us more deeply, right? Remember, whenever there is darkness, there is always light. like I remember for a while I was really into astral projections and trying to astral project and reading about it and learning about it.

And I went to workshops and conferences and retreats on astral projection. And one of the things I heard over and over again is that when you are sick, you can astrol project so much more easily. You can have this out of body experience and go astral traveling and. You hear amazing stories of people who are in real sickness or even in a coma where they went astral, traveling [00:12:00] in like magnificent and amazing ways, and came back and remembered everything, and remembered their experience.

Because again, it’s just like being fatigued when we are sick. All those barriers that we have up tethering us to our physical body you know, protecting us from the messages, air quotes, protecting us from the messages that wanna come through from a higher self. Those barriers are down in a good way, right?

To help us connect deeper in. To the spiritual realm. Another powerful time I’ve noticed the 3:00 AM wake up call is when I am jet lagged. Sometimes my jet lag has gone on for extra days and I know how to out outsmart jet lag, but sometimes I notice I’m in my. You know, divine guidance team wants me connecting in, in the middle of the night.

So instead of having a couple of nights of jet lag, I will have a week of jet lag.

[00:13:00] And again, if you don’t recognize what’s happening, you can be pissed off. I mean, I was pissed off. I’m like, I just wanna sleep and I don’t wanna be lying here, awake and then exhausted the next day. But when I recognized what was going on, okay, it’s still uncomfortable.

Let’s be honest. I think I would just rather be sleeping and checking in with my divine guidance team in the middle of the day. When I’m wide awake, I. But there’s a gift here coming in through the discomfort saying, your energy’s upgrading. You’re being calibrated. There’s a download that wants to come through.

There’s a big message, there’s a big healing. Or maybe it’s a subtle healing and a subtle message, and it’s still important. And the, these are the gifts that come through at this divine hour in the middle of the night. And as I said, really you can turn any sleepless

[00:14:00] situation into a time to connect deeper to the spiritual realm.

So how can we take full advantage of our 3:00 AM wake up calls to receive all the gifts? Well, first and foremost, you make peace with it. Make peace with the sleeplessness. That will be at a certain point it’s gonna get uncomfortable because sometimes you do have the 3:00 AM wake up call that happens on a Wednesday, and then you don’t get another one for another month.

And that’s okay, but sometimes. They come night, after night, after night, and eventually you’re gonna hit up against some discomfort because you just want to sleep. All right, so taking full advantage is making peace with it, accepting it. You don’t have to like it. You don’t have to like the discomfort and be happy about the discomfort, but just say, all right, clearly I’m going through a big energetic

[00:15:00] change. I’m going through a big healing. There’s some big spiritual growth happening, and so this is here to serve me these wake up calls, and I am at peace with it. That’s the first thing. The second thing, and this is so important, is don’t forget to ask for help. I do this all the time with my divine support team.

When I’ve had many 3:00 AM wake up calls in a row, I ask them for more energy. To help me get through the next day from a place of ease and flow and your divine guidance team, yes, they can. They can pump you up with extra energy. They can support you. You know, for me it kind of feels like I’m at a filling station or like I’m an electric car and I’m plugging into the divine.

And the divine is charging me whilst I’m awake. And giving me an extra boost to help me through the next day or

[00:16:00] coming days. So ask for help. Ask for the help that you need. the other way to really take advantage of these calls is to focus on your healing. So one way we can experience a 3:00 AM wake up call is with a dream.

It can be. A reoccurring dream, a scary dream, a jarring dream, or one of those dreams that you wake up and you’re just like, huh? There was something there. Even if you don’t remember any of it, you can have that feeling like, ah, something was trying to tell me something. And you can get jarred awake from that dream at around 3:00 AM You better believe that’s a 3:00 AM wake up call and what you wanna do in those situations.

Is go into the body because you have a wound that wants to be released and you sink into the body and you just feel whatever it is that wants to come through. And sometimes you can name it.

[00:17:00] Sometimes you’re like, oh, I feel fear. Or sometimes you have a thought. I fear that I’m not good enough, for example, and you can be in that, but sometimes you just feel the resistance.

You just feel the energy that wants to pass through you. So all you really need to do in these situations is go into the body and feel the feels so you can release what is ready to be released. And another thing you can do is you can ask before you go to bed at night, especially if you recognize that you’re in a 3:00 AM wake up call period where it’s been happening night after night before you go to bed the night before, ask that you be healed in the middle of the night and ask that you receive the intuitive downloads and divine messages that you’re meant to receive in the middle of the night.

That will help you, that will actually trigger a dream that will help you

[00:18:00] release a wound and that will enable those divine messages to get to you in a mo more clear and unquestionable way.

And speaking of messages, The next way to take full advantage of these calls is to ask, connect into the divine guidance team and say, what are you trying to tell me? You can ask why. What is this 3:00 AM wake up call? What are you trying to tell me? Am I in a middle of an energy upgrade? Is there anything I’m not seeing you?

Are you trying to get my attention? Because sometimes these 3:00 AM wake up calls happen because sometimes these 3:00 AM wake up calls happen because our divine guidance team cannot get our attention in the middle of the day. We’re too busy, we’re too distracted, we have too much going on, so they tap us awake in the middle of the night to get our attention.

So you can ask, what have I not been seeing that you’re trying to get me to see what

[00:19:00] inspired action do I need to be taking? Super important. Super important cuz we can have all the insights in the world. But if we don’t take the action we’re being called to take, then we can only go so far on our path to growth, to growing to the next level, and to calling in our dreams.

And speaking of dreams, the 3:00 AM wake up call is a powerful time to check in. With your divine guidance team, with your higher self, about what is it that I want? What are you calling me towards? What is a vision of me in the future of higher success, higher alignment, and doing some visioning in the middle of the night.

If you are someone who has a hard time visioning, you may find in the middle of the night when you’re fatigued and it’s dark and it’s quiet. You may find visioning coming more useful to you.

[00:20:00] And it doesn’t matter though, at anyway. At the end of the day, if you see things whilst you do visualizations, what’s most important is what you sense to be there, because that’s your intuition talking to you.

So just noticing what you see or sense coming through in the middle of the night. And if you. I mean, I’ve kind of, I’ve had so many 3M wake up calls. I’ve kind of trained myself to go back to sleep, which is hard for me because I am such a morning person. And really after 3:00 AM it’s kind of like it starts to feel like morning for me.

However, if I wake up and I do my clearing, and I would start there first, release the stuff that’s ready to be released, that’s not serving you anymore, then go in and ask for the messages. Ask what’s happening to the energy? Is there a calibration? Is this part of an upgrade? What do I need to know? Are you calling me towards a dream?

[00:21:00] Is there any new insights that you wanna share with me about this dream? Do some visualizing about that dream fulfilled Notice if you have any calls to action and then go to deep breathing, deep relaxation. You can tell your divine support team like, Hey, look. I’m tired. I received a lot from this. Thank you.

Do you have anything else for me? And if you get a no. Oh, if you get a yes, then whatever else they have for you receive. But if you get a no, go back to deep breathing. Go back to relaxation creating space, and you may find that then you do drift back off to sleep. And when that happens, that little post sleep for me again, because I’m such a morning person, I typically don’t sleep that long.

Let’s say I’m awake from three to five with my wake up call, and then I’m able to sleep from like five to six. I get like an

[00:22:00] extra hour of sleep. I find that. That extra hour of sleep was like more than one hour in terms of its ability to recharge my tank. So if you can have a post 3:00 AM wake up, call sleep, you will find that you can get a lot of rest out of a small amount of time.

And if you can’t get back to sleep and you just awake at 3:00 AM and your day is about to start, you know, see if you can give yourself permission to take a mini nap during that day. And don’t forget to ask your. Divine support team to give you an energetic recharge to help you through so you’re not too fatigued and uncomfortable in the day ahead.

My invitation for you this week is to reflect back and notice. The 3:00 AM wake up calls that have appeared into your experience in the past that you may not have recognized and set the intention with me now to be

[00:23:00] open to receiving those 3:00 AM wake up calls when it is divine timing for them to arrive and when the 3:00 AM wake up call does arrive. I invite you to be open and receptive to all the gifts, the divine gifts that are wanting to reach you. All right, my dear ones. That is all I have for you for this week. I truly hope that this episode serves you and these insights serve you in powerful ways.

And as always, until next time, may your soul guide the way a. [00:24:00]
