3 a.m. ---the hour of the spirit....

[photo:Angel Man Worried by farconville]

For some apparent reason, on a daily basis, I am roused at this hour
3 A.M. and when this happens, I have a hard time going back to sleep...what usually happens to me:

...i get a terrible asthma attack and tremendous difficulties in breathing
...dogs are barking continuously and sometimes to the extent of deep howling
...some force wakes me up with a jolt
...i get weird dreams
...i hear strange noises which wakes me up

I have been having this cycle for years now and there were times I asked why? I mentioned this to my family and some friends. Some say that 3 a.m. is the hour of the spirit...meaning this is the hour when spirits or those unseen or from the netherworld are active. Perhaps this is true...and I guess it is somewhat true for me because of 'the gift' I have been carrying with me for a long time. I am aware of these but have become accustomed to it...I know it is not natural but I have accepted the fact that there are some unexplainable circumstances and I need not see it to feel it.

But it is also at this hour when I am awake that I fervently PRAY because I also believe that it is during this hour that GOD is waking me up to Praise HIM and pray for those who I need to pray for. I also believe that this is the hour of great mercy because I am a devotee of the Divine Mercy...it is the hour of the 3 o'clock prayer as well.

Waking up at this hour is a strange occurrence in my life which I have accepted...it has become a part of my routine...so I just let it be...so be it...but let me share some notes which I found on the internet about this hour.

I don't know if this is true or not...just want to share the information with you...which might help in explaining this hour...but like I said, for me this hour is for praying.

FYI from the Internet about 3 a.m.

Vatican Declares Hours Between 3 A.M., 5:30 A.M. 'Ungodly'

VATICAN CITY–In the first papal edict against a time of day since 1560, Pope John Paul II declared the two-and-a-half-hour interval between 3 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. "wholly ungodly." "If a man dares to come home during these demonic hours, he shall be declared anathema," said His Holiness. "Likewise, anyone calling during these hours shall face excommunication." The pope added that in some cases, devout Catholics may receive special dispensation from a priest in a different time zone

From Spirit Daily: 3 am hour

This article, a compilation of experiences different people have had at 3 am, may also be found at: www.spiritdaily.com:


FROM THE MAILBAG: VIEWERS WEIGH IN ON EXPERIENCES THAT OCCUR AT THREE A.M.


It is intriguing, this notion that three a.m. bears special spiritual significance.

We've been reporting about it for years. It spans nations, religions, and the cultural milieu -- with even secular movies working it into their themes.

Most recent was The Exorcism of Emily Rose, which has many of the chilling events happening at this switching (or should would say "witching") hour?

Our review of the movie led to a deluge of e-mail from those who claim their own experiences.

Is it a time when the "veil" is especially thin? Is it an evil hour? Or a combination?

"I got goose bumps when you mentioned three a.m.," wrote John O'Brien of Lake St. Louis, Missouri. "I can't tell you how many times -- hundreds -- I have awakened at precisely three a.m. I have always assumed someone needed prayers. I had no idea it was a common thing."

Common indeed. In devotional circles, rampant. Does Jesus, does the Blessed Mother, rally forces at this time that is also an active hour for witches (the end of their midnight-to-three ceremonies)?

"On one occasion, just recently, I was dreaming that I was being followed by something evil, there was chaos and destruction all around," reports another reader, Caroline Jarzabek of Toronto. "I was trying to get away but I had that dreaded feeling that this entity was getting closer and closer, a deep fear crept in. Just then in the distance I could hear a group of people (maybe angels), praying the Rosary. I immediately joined in and there was instant peace. I woke up and you guessed it -- it was three a.m."

Want to get a bit chilled? "My friend George Lutz -- of the highly documented Amityville Horror demonic persecution -- woke up each night at 3:15 -- which was thought to be the time a young man murdered his family of six in that same house 13 months earlier," notes a viewer from the West Coast.

During apparitions of the Blessed Mother at Kibeho, Rwanda, points out yet another viewer, it was claimed that three a.m. was the hour that Peter denied Jesus for the third time. Others point out that three a.m. is the reverse of three p.m. (the hour of Jesus death, and now the hour of mercy), or that it may have been the moment of Resurrection.

We're not sure of that, but at Rwanda, which has Church sanction, one seer claimed he was told that "those who sin at that hour cause both the Eternal Father and Jesus Christ such deep suffering due to numerous sins being committed at this hour that the Eternal Father feels He could destroy the world but because of His great love for us will not do so."

For your discernment!

Is it also the hour to pray for souls in purgatory?

According to Patty O'Neil of Phoenix, she and her family began waking up at three a.m. after speaking with an American seer, who they visited after their dad died (in 1989, saying his Rosary).

"In the period after his death, we visited with Estela Ruiz, family friend and visionary in South Phoenix, Arizona," says Patty. "She had a message for us that when our dad died, that Our Blessed Mother was there with him. We all began waking up at three a.m. shortly after. Once we started talking about and realized this was happening, we then learned of the significance of that holy hour. Our spiritual lives have increased and grown steadily so that now it no longer surprises us but we will start praying because we believe someone needs prayer. We've been visited by souls who passed on, been attacked, and one sister received a phone call at three a.m. exactly with no one there. Her caller ID read 'Unknown.'"

As we said: for your interpretation. "One three a.m. experience was a week before St. Gennaro's in 2002 or 2003," relates a viewed named Donna Maria from Calabria, Italy. "I fell a sleep on the couch which I usually don't do. I woke up and looked out the window and across the street from my house is a lemon tree and I saw what at first I thought was the guy across the street put a huge statue of the Madonna in front of the lemon tree. As I focused closer it was not a statue, and I don't need glasses. It was flowing but not solid like statue. It was a little more defined than the silhouette photos of the Madonna of Medjugore. Then she raised her arm pointing to the northeast and disappeared. I looked at the clock and it was three a.m."

There seems to be a spiritual battle, with representations from both side. From the dark side, notes one viewer, comes the smell of sulfur (noted in many locales these days).

"I am often awakened at three a.m. and take it as a time to pray for what Jesus wants me to pray for, so I pray the Rosary and most often pray in tongues, my prayer language, as that is what I feel the Holy Spirit wants me to pray for at that time," relates a woman named Francesca from Dayton, Ohio. "Perhaps I sense for someone in trouble, danger, ill or whatever. I pray till I fall asleep again. It is also a good time to pray the Mercy Chaplet as it may be for a person dying, or just pray it for Mercy to be shed upon the world in our time of dire circumstances."

If not three a.m., it seems to be precisely 3:33 a.m.

But the stroke of three is by far the most widely reported -- hundreds have done so to us over the years.

Michael is often involved, as is the Blessed Mother. Some felt under attack until they began praying more, or fasting.

"I wake up many nights, or should I say mornings, at three a.m.," says Janice M. Stolle of San Antonio. " When I do, I pray to St. Michael the Archangel to protect us all from evil and harm. During Katrina, it was almost every night, but now it is more sporadic.

"Three a.m.!" writes a viewer named Rene M. Schneider of Willow Springs, Illinois. "Many times I find myself awake with my rosary saying the Divine Mercy Chaplet! I am awakened and 'told' to pray! It feels like many curses come this time."

Often it gets back to the concept of Mercy.

"I always wake up during the three o'clock hour in the middle of the night," writes Barbara McPhail. "I am extremely devoted to the Divine Mercy and coordinate these devotions for our parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Lindenhurst, New York. I always felt that God wants us to pray at that hour that is why he constantly wakes me (and many people I know) up during that time. So I pray and talk to Jesus and tell Him how much I love Him and I also say Jesus I trust in You many many times during that hour for as long as he keeps me awake.

"I never looked at 3:00 as a witching hour and I never will. Three o'clock will always remind me of Jesus dying on the cross for me and of the Divine Mercy."
Notes yet one last one, Janice Stravinskas of Saugus, Massachusetts: "I have been awakened suddenly at this hour, many times, with promptings to immediately begin praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet, to ask for mercy on the world. I have read Sister Faustina's Diary, cover to cover, and after that began a serious devotion to the chaplet. Since then, I have had these experiences of being suddenly awakened, at this hour, mostly between 3:00 am and 3:30. After I pray, I return to a nice peaceful, restful sleep."-----Paul

What is "Dead Time" and Why are spirits more active at 3 am?
I was watching Paranormal States last night and they always refer to "Dead Time" being 3am. Granted it's a TV show and I understand this, but, is this a Paranormal States time they have chosen? Or, is there any merit to this 3am dead time?

I was always under the impression that the vale between the physical world and spiritual world to be its thinnest at midnight?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First things first.

Dead Time is a term used because all power that isn't needed to run their equipment in the house is turned off, partially because its believed entity's have easier time manifesting in darkness, partially because the power could trick some of the equipment i.e. EMF meters (Though I've rarely if ever seen them use it), or the thermal cam.

Its held at 3am because it is an hour that the paranormal is BELIEVED to be MORE active, that's not to say its only active at 3am its simply believed to be more active, and its the mockery of the hour Christ died.

Now a seance is when you are attempting to contact the dead, be it a lost one, or something else, you are not to say calling out to anything in the area, it is actually said that you are somehow opening a portal to the other side and calling for the loved one to come forward and speak. This can have negative results if you do not know what you're doing. Sometimes this is even done with some sort of chant before you start opening the portal.

What PRS is doing on TV during dead time is NOT a seance, they are not attempting to open a portal and talk to the dead. THey are calling out to anything that may be ALREADY in the area to try and communicate. Thus they are not opening portals, they are not chanting or doing some sort of ritual to kick off the session (unless you consider the white light thing a ritual), they are simply trying to see if there is something in the area and it can already communicate with them.

Does anyone else wake up at 3:00 am in the morning and then toss and turn for the rest of the night? (Why always 3:00?)

1. Good question, I do wake up at 3;00a.m, I've read in spiritual articles that the reason why we wake up at that hour is because Our guardian angel is trying to get our attention. during the day, it's impossible for our angel to communicate. It's just a way to communicate with us. Why does our angel pick that very hour, I don't know. I hope this helps you
2. 3 am is NOT the devil's watching hour, its called "the witching hour".. 3:00am to 3:59am is supposed to be the hour where evil spirits are supposed to be the strongest.3 AM is the witching hour because Jesus Christ was thought to have died at 3 PM.I wake up at 3am all the time, i refuse to step foot out of my bed or bedroom from 3am to 4am, you can easily find out if it is something paranormal waking you up by setting a tape recorder on record when you go to sleep and when you wake up in the morning cut it off and play it, see if you hear anything (i.e. train whistles, kids screaming, whatever)or video tape you sleeping

Heart & Soul
Thank you for this post. I am one that wake up at 3am OR 4am. I believe I get my most inspiration answers to prayer because God is waking me up. I don't feel scared because I believe my Guardian Angels are right beside me too. My Pastor just told the congregation that these are the darkest hours....shame...he just gave the enemy what belongs to God, and isn't that what is he known for trying to be like God. Also, the Vatican has reaped what it has sown in the past, and now they have declared these hours demonic...oh! they are in big trouble...I saw their demise in 197? God gave me a Vision of their downfall, because He is not happy with the way the Catholic church is designed to cause its congregation to stumble...Now taking the hour of the spirit and the time of deep prayer is really not good at all!!

Hey your blog was on my birthday March 17, St. Patrick's Day, Now how can a person born on such a great day with such a great patron saint, believe such nonsense as 3-6am being the hours of darkest and not to pray....

P. Michelle Castillo said...

Heart & Soul my Pastor sermon of FEAR clarified the issue 3am to 6am....Fear not "It is I"

Ok! I listen to my Pastor sermon again and I have clarification now...he wasn't saying that 3am-6am was bad or evil, but that in matt. 14:25,26 during the darkest hours the disciples thought they were not going to make it out of the storm and see Jesus walking on the water thinking he's a ghost. Jesus comes during the worst storms in our life and sometimes that could be between the hours of 3am - 6am......AMEN!! if you would like to here Pastor Galen's sermon on FEAR Then go here
