Dreams Of Possession

Before you call the priest over to your house let’s break down what it actually means to be possessed in your dream. Possession dreams are fairly common yet vivid nightmares that may jolt you out of sleep. These dreams revolve around you our people being possessed by a negative force or entity that you have little or not control over.

So does this mean you are actually possessed? Answer: Yes. Yes you are…. We are all possessed actually, but never by the devil or a doll running around trying to kill you. The possession in your life is often metaphoric to something you have absolutely no control over, often times unconscious to you. If you are possessed in your house reflects an internal struggle that needs fixing.

Possession Dreams

Dreams have an interesting way of creating certain symbols as metaphors, thus sending them in bizarre ways for you to get the point. The scarier the dream suggests the more you are ignoring the problem.

These dreams are usually connected to your own unconscious behaviors that are posing issues in your life, family or relationships. Alternatively, by reflecting on some of these controlling traits helps identify the cause of the dream.

Possession Dream Symbolism

  • Anger or outbursts
  • Addictions
  • Fears or bullying
  • Drugs or alcohol
  • Negative thinking
  • Obsessions
  • Relationships or toxic people
  • Neurotic behaviors
  • Past experiences

Wait…Did You Just Watch A Horror Movie?

Before we start to investigate further it would be helpful to know if you recently watched a horror movie. Dreams have a tendency to relive what you may have watched the night before. Watching horror movies like Annabelle or Exorcist increase the chance of you being possessed in your dream.

Possession Dreams: Human Shadow

According to analytical psychologist Carl Jung believed that everybody has a shadow that has either been repressed or ignored. The possession in your dream might bring your attention to the dark parts of your personality that has control over you.

The shadow is a manifestation of all the repressed or unconscious urges, behaviors and emotions trapped inside wanting to be noticed. Despite the graphic or disturbing theme of your dream it has a purpose to help guide you to shine light on these dark places.

  • Aggressive impulses
  • Taboo mental images
  • Shameful experiences
  • Immoral urges
  • Irrational wishes
  • Unacceptable sexual desires
  • Fears

The main purpose behind your dream is for you to address these weaknesses that are prevalent in your life. By shining light on the dark areas of your personality the possession loses it’s strength and will eventually leave your body.

Possession Dreams: Casting The Demon

Is it possible something has manifested negatively where you are unable to let it out? Furthermore being possessed mirrors all your hidden emotions that have completely trapped you. You might have trouble expressing these feelings and they come out in other ways.

Society might have shaped you to hold on to these feelings your entire life. Suppressing your emotions may spare others the discomfort of having to deal with your feelings, bottling it all on the inside can cause more damage.

The anger or rage that has been festered inside reflects that of a possession; the inability to be yourself, someone who you are not. Your body has been taken over by an entity that has chosen to posses you. These dream should not be considered a ‘bad dream’, but a positive dream shedding light on the emotions that have taken complete control over you.

In essence your higher self wants you to fix this internal issue so you can metaphorically rid this demon out of your body (mind). If this problem is not addressed the dream will become recurring causing long term phyical and psychological damage to your well being.

Common Possession Dreams

Friends or Family: Often times you will notice a friend or close family member being possessed by the devil. These dreams appear to possibly show you a change in their behaviour. They might be changing in ways you feel that are not good for them. You might feel that something has gotten into them or they are being controlled by a force they cannot understand.

Child Possession: This can be an interesting dream symbol that might be hinting that the child could be you. The term ‘inner child’ refers to the trapped child in every adult that has been stuck in time due to a past childhood traumatic event in their lives.

This child haunts you because have been neglecting this hurt and pain and needs to be attended. You can rescue this child by doing inner child work which is the process of going back to the time when you where effected by some event. The child will continue to haunt you until you acknowledge this kid that is trapped inside.

Exorcism: These dreams might not be so bad after all. When its time to call a priest in you might be acknowledging what is inside and now it time to get out! You need to make peace with your demons so you can move on with your life.

Doll Possession: A symbol that brings you back to your childhood, or perhaps you just finished watching a scary movie. Dreams about possessed dolls often leads you to examine your inner child.

Had a dream I was possessed and at first I didn’t know it was me. When the dream began I remember I was surrounded by my family and we kept witnessing paranormal activity like things moving window cracking noises and lights flickering. I recall the background it was always dark cloudy if not raining it was nighttime and as the more we witnessed paranormal activity the more aggressive and louder it got from windows cracking too completely shattering from objects being thrown around the room to family members being chocked or suffocated by sheets or curtains and no one was… Read more »

Hey sorry been busy mentally emotionally struggling lately so I didn’t respond till now but I did in the past have issues with my mother in law after I had a really bad seizure(I’m epileptic) she pretty much saved my life and we kind of of grew a closer connection between us. I did go to the Doc for help with my insomnia but they just recommended taking sleep aid (no help) and then decided to go up on my anti depressants so yeah. Then just the other day I’ve been having multiple dreams where I get shot at again… Read more »

Hey thank you for getting back with me it could be the medication I’m not for sure tho I know now with the new meds they make me super restless and hyper at night so the only way to sleep is with sleep aid/pain reliever and I had another weird dream again last night (no surprise there lol at this point I’m used to it) but I remember it being at my old childhood home and I can’t quite remember if the toddler baby was mine or if I was watching the baby or why I did or what led… Read more »

I try not to be so reliant of the sleep aids but it’s the only way I can sleep at night although the next day I feel tired and groggy all day with no energy. I do feel like I have a lot of childhood trauma but I have learned to try to heal and forgive those who hurt me and or caused my trauma. I had another dream last night where I was at school with my husband and this other girl who Idk and this teacher and for some reason we didn’t trust the teacher and I can’t… Read more »

It could be ive noticed Im more easily triggered to get irritated quick and frustrated idk if it’s the medicine it’s supposed to help so I don’t get that way but I think it’s made it worse and when I tell my doctors I just feel like they go up on my dose or give me something else. I’m not sure if the meds actually help or just made me numb to my emotions. Idk if it has to do with my bipolar depression that makes me get irritated easily.

I was inside a big space with my mom. There was an orange room only entered through one side with walls of, some material. They were imitating EQs and bass could be heard slightly from them. I tried to pass through but a large mouth was being formed, followed by some eyes, the face seen on a jack-o-lantern. I was then falling down the room but was lifted up and attempting to scream. My mom tried to come save me but she too got possessed. Any thoughts? Quick mention, I watched a video on a face forming if you go… Read more »

I had a dream I was inside a dark house it seemed to be nighttime but I was unsure. I was in a room with someone I assume was my sister, I couldn’t really tell. Strange poltergeist events were happening around the room and when I went to explore the house all around the house as well. There was laughter like a little girl/boy as objects were being thrown and doors were opening. The objects that were thrown weren’t thrown at me just around and the doors weren’t opened aggressively. When I got back to the room my sister said… Read more »

Quick question Can you name one thing that exists outside of the mind independently? No This by simple definition is a dream. Now that we have acknowledged this is a dream. We can now move forward as Painters on a canvas with no center and no edge. Suffering a brain injury after being run over by a police truck responding to an emergency everything by necessity became simple. Every past experience simply academia. Non-functional. Every equalizing filter in constant flux. Where does one begin when they don’t know how to shower in the physical sense. Everyone around you doers of… Read more »

I had a dream where I was possessed. I could see the demon lying in my skin and waiting till night to strike and take over. Once I fell asleep, it went on a rampage. It hurt my dog, and went after my parents. I was struggling to take control and at some point I thought it was me who caused the pain and that is was no demon, but just me. I thought it was gone but it just lied in wait deeper inside of my body where I couldn’t see it.

I had a dream I was back living with my parents, it was night. The house was old and creepy not one I’ve been in. I was my current age as an adult, something didn’t feel right and I called my mom. She eventually came and stood at the side of my bed, she was half awake and looked at me and said my eyes and head hurt. She looked odd, I grabbed her suddenly by the arms and screamed get out. The out was very drawn out and as my voice got louder and the sound drew out further… Read more »

I had a dream I was in my room but it was really dark and then I felt something trying to keep me in place like a dark entity and normally people can’t move when that happens but I was able to scream and move out of it, and then once I got up I was floating. I started to fly around my room, and I looked in a mirror. Once I did I noticed I had these huge dark marks under my eyes (maybe it was mascara) i don’t know. But anyway I wasn’t scared of it I was… Read more »

She was explaining to us that our house was haunted and started acting real sketchy. Mum n dad say in our garage scared and staring out to the road down our long driveway. Things started breaking and being thrown around by nothing. So I grabbed my niece and we got into my car.

Many times he chased her but in the end she couldn’t get possessed because she was protected the devil couldn’t do anything..

I had a dream that I was laying in bed and all of the sudden my legs began to go over my head and drag me up the wall. It literally felt like I was going up the wall or floating above my bed. What does this mean??
