A demon is defined as an evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person or act as a tormentor in hell. Thousands of people a month search the web investigating what a demon symbolizes in their dreams. Most are shocked to find out the meaning…
Demons tend to appear in your dreams with the intention to not only scare you but to get your attention. Unfortunately these vivid nightmares are known to jolt you out of sleep worrying if you are actually possessed by a powerful entity. But guess what? You most likely are!
Before you call the priest over and sage your house you might first want to understand how dreams deliver messages to you via unconscious. Your dream is using the symbol of the so called “demon” as a manifestation of your own “inner demons” that you chose not to face. This is why most dreams usually involve being chased or paralyzed with fear as you encounter this evil presence.
Demon Dream Meaning
The good news is once you identify who or what the demons are in your life it will lose all of its strength in your dream. Dreams of defeating or winning against the devil/demon is considered a good omen representing overcoming something that has tormented you in your life.
For some odd reason we tend to use mystical metaphors to describe the pain and suffering inflicted on others, sometimes this is self induced; and other times it just the luck of the draw.
Saying such as “battling my demons” or “overcoming my demons” often filter their way in our dreams metaphorically to deliver a message. In essence this has nothing to do with being possessed even though it feels real or maybe you encountered an evil presence as you are stuck in your sleep (sleep paralysis).
Now that you understand what a demon might be hinting at lets metaphorically disassemble your dream.
