In a 4-week study with 15 men living with restricted daylight hours, something strange started to happen. After catching up on their “sleep debt” – a common state of affairs for most of us – the participants began to wake up in the middle of the night:

They began to have two sleeps.

Over a twelve hour period, the participants would typically sleep for about four or five hours initially, then wake for several hours, then sleep again until morning. They slept not more than eight hours total.

The middle hours of the night, between two sleeps, was characterized by unusual calmness, likened to meditation. This was not the middle-of-the-night toss-and-turn that many of us experienced. The individuals did not stress about falling back asleep, but used the time to relax.

Russell Foster, professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford, points out that even with standard sleep patterns, this night waking isn’t always cause for concern. “Many people wake up at night and panic,” he says. “I tell them that what they are experiencing is a throwback to the bi-modal sleep pattern.

Do any of you have a bi-modal sleep pattern?
I have for years.

Stephen

Yes,I have that,Stephen.     Often awakening at 4am.    I get out of bed,have a cup of tea then go back and drop into a light doze.   That is when those from the spirit world come through....I hear voices and given messages sometimes.

That makes a lot of sense to me.....

It is often a very fruitful time for intuitions and insights.
Nice to know it is quite normal.

Thanks for sharing Stephen. 

I don't normally do that. I stay up too late and I'm exhaused. Go to bed and sleep the whole night through. I only get 6-7 hrs a night sleep on weekdays but I do sleep 8 hrs on the weekends. 

On rare occasion I will get up early and stay up. 
I am a night owl. When I wasn't working I'd stay up and not even get to bed till 2 or 3 am.

Tell us about yourself : I’m a widow; I lost my spouse April 16, 1999 to a broken heart and Cancer. He was a Native American. I have lived on his Reservation in California for 37 years. We were married 23 years. We had two children, lost one to a drunk driver in 97 before my spouse died. I started my spiritual journey when son passed; but woke up to spirituality abruptly June 2009 when I had an event reading by James Van Praagh and he brought through eight deceased relatives. I would love to be a medium in the future, and share that spiritual connection with those who have lost. I take photos of spirits in clouds. One of my favorite spirit photographs at night is an apparition of a Native American Male.
