Sleep Terrors: When I Sleep I Dream Of Demons

The following is a visitor-submitted story of a sleep terror experience | Read more stories here

When I sleep I dream of demons. Demons in little children and of my family i live with as demons. Everytime i have a dream about the demons they're either after me or talking to me in the tongue of the devil. They get worse and worse each time i have one.

The last time i had one was last night and it felt so real as if i was really there. I could feel the wind and hear every little thing. I really dont know how to explain them but that they're awful.

I dont ever go to sleep thinking of mean things or go to sleep even thinking. I can't figure out why i keep having dreams like this. But sometimes i wont even walk outside in the dark i have to have someone beside me for a couple of days so i can get over the fear of my dreams. Because i think that it could happen because they seem like they're happening in real life as i have them...

i have had them my whole life
by: trinitrotoluene

when i was a child, the drs just said that they were night terrors and that i would grow out of them. i am 27 yrs old now and still have them almost every night. i would tell ppl,but most of them thought that i was just making up stories... to b cool or something. yes, i am a nerd, but i am proud of it and would never lie about such things. even my boyfriend dismissed my claims until the first night that we slept in the same bed. lets just say that he did not sleep well that night. last night i was put in prison,burned alive and thrown into a bottomless pit, the night b4 i was eaten alive by demons dressed as old turkish warriors. one week i dreamed of different ways that my sister killed me; she used giant scorpions one night, turned into a demon and ripped my intrails out of my anus on another night etc... i have tried everything to get rid of them; red wine, rare fruits, relaxation, i dont drink caffeine, Ambien - dont recommend that one - it prevented me from waking up, not sleeping - just made me go into dream state sooner,i even tried smoking pot b4 bed - i dont usually do such things but i was desperate. nothing helps. but if u have a new idea, i will try it.

Prayer and Fasting NEW
by: michael

When my kids had bad dreams I prayed and fasted for a day and that seemed to be the end of it. There is something about fasting and imploring the Christian God that works if you have a relationship with Him. Remember you children form part of the covenant sphere of your relationship and He just wants to be asked to help. For some reason fasting works but also pray for protection for the whole family.

It Runs in the Family NEW
by: Anonymous

In my dream, my own mother and sister, the two people I love and trust the most were demons. All I can remember is the walls streaked with blood, their eyes black and teeth sharp. They didn't speak, but I knew they were after my life. My first instinct was salt. I had to find salt. But there was nothing. My house crumbled and I was left in darkness. I can't remember waking up. I've never had any religious beliefs, and still do not, but I am aware of what is out there. I feel inhuman myself, as my family has always been spiritually advanced (but not enough to make a difference). My own aunt has tampered with witchcraft and I believe she never closed the door she opened.

Dreams usually work on our unconscious. In the uncouncious we are more open to the spiritual realm then when we are lucid and awake. Since the dreams are from a spiritual source (demons) they usually attack you when you sleep. How does one stop? Well, sometimes prayer fails since these demons have legal access into our minds due to unrepentant sins or we are bound by some type of curse or have participated in some kind of occult/satanic practice. All these give legal grounds for these demons to torment us. Demons attack us because they hate us, we as humans have been given the opportunity to repent while they haven't. Jesus has made a way out for us and given us authority over them therefore we become their eternal trophies when they take us to Hell. Pray the salvation prayer. Read the bible daily, pray daily and look up online on deliverance ministries and how to be delievered.
You are not alone, many of us suffer of demonic oppression but Christ came to set us free. Remember that God is love and sometimes God allows things to happen to us so that we may find salvation. Jesus is coming soon therefore hurry before time runs out.

I KNOW WHO CAN HELP US NEW
by: Anonymous

Ever since I was a lil kid, i have had dreams (nightmares) about demons. Sometimes I chase them, sometimes they chase me. And for the past 15yrs, i have been dreaming gruesome dreams. I REMEMBER ALL OF THEM. Every single detail.
When I call out the name if Jesus in my dreams..."JESUS CHRIST" with all my heart, knowing that I have absolutely no other choice but to call His name, demons fled the nanosecond I call out Jesus' name.
Now some of you may think Jesus has nothing to do with it, let me tell you one thing. Maybe you haven't had the scariest, most gruesome, soul-scarring, life draining dreams like I had. I tried so many things to get rid of them and I found that Jesus is the only one demons are afraid of.

If you would like to talk about your dreams, even just to get it off your chest, I will hear you out, talk with you and pray for you earnestly. I know what it feels like to stay up night after night, afraid of falling asleep. I'm just an email away...

Your god can't help you. NEW
by: I can help.

All of your dreams are either caused by your inner daemons and you ought to be seeking the advice of a psychiatrist or your dreams are caused by a negative energy. It is simple really, everything is energy (for education on the subject feel free to inquire at the email below). Long story short, if your personal energy (your soul) is being attacked, intruded upon, or threatened in your dream state there are a few things that may help. If you would like help I can instruct you, but you must be open minded and believe what I say or it won't work. Serious requests for help only: DeaPyre@gmail.com

demonic dreams help NEW
by: Anonymous

I` v been rased in a cristan home but never believed in JESUS or the devil untill a giant deformed reptile tryed to carry me out ofmy room in my dreams. I could still remember how it looked big horns that shiled its face,it was taller than my ceiling it had to crouch down its knees bent over its head it had long neals like 10 or 12" long. I could fill my soul leaving my body, just before we got to the door i felt GOD,s foot pushing me down to the ground the pressure was so powerful the demon couldn't hold me up anymore. I snaped out of my nightmare my wife had her hand on my chest and i was crying tears running and my heart was racing like i was running. Later that week i gave my live to JESUS, its been about 10 years and to this day demons still try to enter my dreams but i have the power and the blood of JESUS to fight them off. When u dream your in the spirit realms dont let them rule over u, pray for ur dreams before u sleep. God gave u the power over satan and his demons.

Absolutely terrifying dreams NEW
by: Anon

I've had what I consider to be prophetic dreams since I was around 9 years old. I hope I can offer some of you relief on to what is going on. My biggest word of advice is to LISTEN. With most demonic dreams, things are terrorizing you in your sleep. But not for no reason. They want you to feel fear, they want to intrude into your everyday life and change how you view God or your will to change.
It isn't necessary to determine exactly why they are targeting you, so don't waste your time. The solution to your "night terrors", or demonic attacks, is simple. Demons flee at the name of Jesus. Jesus' name has power, which may sound strange but it does. Saying something such as "in the name of Jesus, get behind my satan." Or "in the name of Jesus I command you to leave." Actually works. For more than just sleep also. But give God the respect and try to get to know him once you begin using his name as your defense.

I have never had a dream like this one NEW
by: Anonymous

So last night i had a dream. (And i am Wicca so this dream is not one i have ever had ever before). I was with my friend at my house with her brother and my dad and her dad. So my dad was hittingher brother and she wasnt doing anything about it,so my garage door door (that leads out to the garage). Was open and theree was this dark shadow in the corner. (And even in my dream i knew it was some kind of demon thing). So when i stepped up to defend my friends brother, there was another shadow in the corner of my dinning room. I had a towel in my hand so when i put the towel up, the shadow in the garage came out with a weapon and had horns on ir head. The shadow in the other corner of the room just stood there until the other shadow came up an drove the weapon into my side. I woke up after that screaming, though my mom didnt hear. (Amazingly). What does this mean?

Jesus Christ is the only answer NEW
by: Anonymous

Corey Youre not crazy . My fiance used yo Have similar dreams. He would Wake up drenched in sweat. His dreams were so bad and very realistic. One night we both fell asleep. In my bedroom there was a door that lead to my back yard. In the middle of the night I saw the nightlight in the back yard go on. I got up say at the corner of my bed and looked out . No one was there. He must have woken up also and asked me " what are you looking at " I looked back at him and said " nothing, I thought I saw something." In the morning to told me about this dream he had . A demon was chasing him and he was running to my bedroom door . When he got there he kept knocking on the door and he could see me sitting at the edge of my bed talking to someone. He started crying desperately and when the demon almost caught up to him he woke up.

I was a Christian before I met my fiancé. But ever since I have met him my faith grew stronger. I helped him get rid of his nightmares. He have his life up to God and we pray together every night , through the day even . I think these dreams mean something. You should fear nothing and no one if you believe in Jesus Christ. Give up your life to him and you will saved.

Nightmare in Real Life NEW
by: Anonymous

My dream started as my family and i just moving into a big house. We loved it ! My family was upstairs cooking and talking to each other. I was downstairs in my new room unpacking. There was this white thing out of the corner of my eye, but i was so happy in my dream i ignored it. But as time grew, it got alot closer and i felt alot more creeped out and cold. So i decided to go upstairs to see my family. As i walked up the stairs it grabbed my by may ankle with its three fingers and claws digging in my ankle. I was screaming and crawling up the stairs. It had a loud screeching voice (like nails on a chalk board) it was very skinny, white with ash peeling off its skin like its been in fire for all its life and red peircing eyes. It was evil, i grabbed it by it flakey skinny arm and flung it up the stairs tword the light saying "show yourself" then it burned up in the bright light up the stairs with one loud screeching scream before turning into ash. Then i woke up from my dream. I had fallen asleep in my living room, by my ankle burned alot and stung. So i looked and there was three large holes in my ankle where the demond grabbed me in my dream.

this will surely help. NEW
by: Muslim

When i was an atheist... i was defendless against demonic attacks.

As a muslim, we are given weapons by God to protect ourselves from demons and Satan.

The strongest weapon is the Al Kursi verse.

If i read it before i sleep. Nothing touches me. Btw demonic attacks made me revert to islam... becuz the only thing that scared them away was my Quranic recitation of Gods words.

I swear to God... that the Quran scares them away. Try it if u dnt believe me.

Quickly I reacted and went in front of my friend and said " Stay away from her!" Then my friend said the demon shrugged... Could she see the demon? I'm not sure about that one but the demon left us two alone... In which this was my first demon dream I have ever had.. In the past I had nightmares but they didn't have a demon in them.

Scary stuff NEW
by: Anonymous

A little background about this place I live in now. My wife and I both think its haunted. There is times when I hear her scream, loudly, and run into the other room where she is and she looks at me funny. She didn't make the noise. This happens to her as well with me. We have an antique furniture room with various other antique items in that room. We both try and keep that door shut b/c that room makes us uneasy when the door is opened. Like being watched or followed. Some other things have happened but they are right on the line of being unexplainable to plausible.

----------------------------------------------
The Dream
------------------------------------------------
I just woke up from one of the scariest nightmares I have had in a long time.
My mom was in it, 3 of my brothers were in it. Family Heirlooms were being inventoried by strangers. 1830-1840 blue crystal piece about 2 foot high with mushroom head found at the lake covered in sand. We were somewhere in the country and learned of a tragic story of B. Abrams and his family from the 1800's. There was an old Homestead on a hill above the lake. a levy on the lake. Sand in the lake. I can remember many boxes set up in rows with different people I don't know looking for something. I think it is family heirloom related? Cannot remember.
I don't remember the story about B. Abrams, or B. Abrahms from mid 1800's but I do remember a sense of something tragic happened to them.
Near the end.
There was range balls everywhere and I seen my brother hitting some earlier and I was trying to kill time and had a wire pole and picked up around 20 of them. There was a road up near the back of the range with cars on it. Garage was up by that corner of the back of the range and the road. The garage was separate from the house and the lake.
In the end I was in the garage, which was more like a separate bedroom. Had 3 reg doors and 2 garage doors, a bed, nightstand and mirror. I had rubber-bands on my face. they were creasing my top lip ever so slightly and kind of made my face look like the jokers off batman the movie. I took off the rubber-bands at the corner of my lips and noticed a little scab. I started picking at the scab and a big chunk of my lip came free, and again, with this thick white puss behind it. I picked at the pus and remember looking in that mirror to see everything looked like rotting flesh from my chin to up to my eyebrows. No skin, no eyes, no nose. just loose stringy meat and muscle. I can remember thinking to myself in the dream. If the mirror shows I have no eyes, then how am I seeing this in the mirror. Went over to the reg door to leave and when i pushed it close it would bounce back to where it was with some tension. If I pulled it open then It would do the opposite with equal force but would not let me out. I ended up lying in the bed with the mattress folded over me like a sandwich, with a force, a weight holding that mattress pinning me down. Started having Images of kids with white exorcism faces levitating through the air on bicycles the bed folded over on top of me pressing down on me over and over and a voice telling me over and over that everywhere I go I will feel this force. I even heard the word "demon" used in this voice from the pressing mattress.
Ok so now I'm scared Severely in my dream and the first thing I think of is to say the "Lord's Prayer" So in the dream I want to say it but it is very hard to get the first words muttered out. Very strenuous, mumbling for split second but then I managed to get out "Our Father," and I awoke in my bed in the morning. I didn't miss a beat from the dream world to awake world with the prayer. "who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. "
At the end I prayed that the light of Jesus of Nazareth to please come down and bless and shine the light and love of Jesus of Nazareth into every room of this house and every person's heart in this house to cast out any negative anything and to protect us from evil forever and to rid any evil that is in this home.

Finding the answere to your dreams NEW
by: Fel

I dream about this as well, have been since I was very young. Every month I generally have a number of dreams of some sort of demon tormenting me, getting to me but since a few years ago I have been having less and less of these dreams as they mostly accrue when I'm in some sort of physical or mental state due to work, family, some sort of unresolved issues, and so on since I found away to stop such dreams and darkness.

If you still dreaming about this and found no answer and Religion feels that is not your calling or did not help completely contact me on the email below so I can share with you my experience, what I learned and what helps me. I maybe can help you lessen the dreams and help you go about them when they do happen so that they don't effect you as much anymore or even maybe not to dream about them anymore. If you still do however. I generally face it. face the fear and fight back with light (love, honesty, postivity, faith, by raising my consciousness in away. If you also maybe want a reason as to why this happens to you and why you see what you call as demons and why you kept on dreaming about them for so long I might have some answers both going into spiritual and scientific areas that can help. contact me on: amarocker@hotmail.com

Sleep Paralysis: A Dreamer's Guide

Sleep Paralysis Treatment Book

Ever woken up paralyzed? A surprising number of us have, believe it or not. But few know the actual causes of this phenomenon, and fewer still how to exert control over it. Dream researcher and sleep paralysis expert Ryan Hurd shares breakthrough insights into how to do just that.

How This Site Was Made

In 2007 I discovered a guide to website building that would change my life. After learning from it diligently, it would eventually empower me to help Dr. Dement take his life's mission of spreading education about sleep health to the online world. Now, several years later, this site reaches over 100,000 visitors per month and counting.

The results are due in large part to the methods taught in that guide, and they are replicable for others who have knowledge of a subject they would like to share with the masses. I've detailed some of my journey here for those who might be interested.
