Dreams about demons are an exciting topic. They are fascinating to consider, especially since many people believe that demons exist or can be confirmed in dreams.
Dreams about demons can have several different meanings depending on the literal content of your dream and what your participation was in the dream itself. It is essential to keep in mind that no single article can tell you exactly what your dreams mean. Your own personal interpretation of the dream is necessary, mainly because only you know all of the details that went into creating it.
Dreams about demons are often metaphors for emotional struggles or fears.
It is possible that you will be trying to work through some demon in your waking life and projecting it onto your dream world. Monsters are often used in dreams to symbolize the darker aspects of your personality or other suppressed emotions, including anger, sadness, and fear.
Had a demon scare you
It is not uncommon to dream about something that scares you, such as demons. Suppose a demon or other evil creature appears in your dreams. In that case, it may be a sign that you are subconsciously terrified of some aspect of yourself or your life.
Dreaming of a demon scaring you may be your mind’s attempt to show you that this “demon” is not as frightening as you might think. By exposing the devil to yourself, perhaps through dreams, you can confront it and find ways of dealing with it in real life.
Had demons haunted your house
If you had demons haunt your house, then you are feeling isolated or that your family is driving you away.
The isolation theme may be an indication that the dreamer has secluded himself in some way. Perhaps he has chosen to focus only on his studies or work and ignore his social life; maybe she has chosen to cut off her friends and family for fear of burdening them. In any case, the dream is trying to tell the dreamer that there is no need for isolation and that he will regret closing himself off from those who love him if he continues.
You have Seen dark or lightly colored demons
The color or darkness of the demon denotes how you see yourself. Light colors indicate innocence and purity, while dark colors symbolize something darker within you. Perhaps your demons are an angry outburst; perhaps your demons are of furious desires. Whatever is going on in your subconscious mind, the dream tries to steer you in a better direction.
Being chased by a dark-colored demon may suggest you are letting your anger and frustrations get the better of you. Perhaps you need to take a step back and let things cool off before leaping into the fray.
On the other hand, being chased by a light-colored demon denotes that there is something good about your desires. They might be okay, or perhaps they are better than okay. Take a moment to reflect on your motivations before you act.
You Saw a male or female demon
Now, this one can be a little trickier because it might suggest that you are wrestling with your feminine or masculine energy. Perhaps you are struggling to find the balance or harnessing both powers in harmony? You may also want to take some time to reflect on what drives you and how you act when you get passionate about things (positively or negatively).
You were seeing a male and female demon. Okay, this one is a little tricky. Perhaps you have been the victim of some heavy energy from someone else or been around incredibly negative people. It might be time to clear your environment and take a break from certain relationships for a while so you can recharge and re-center yourself. Also, remember to do things that bring balance into your life. Learning about meditation or spending time with people that are more spiritually minded can help ground you.
You Encountered a demon’s attack
Dreaming about demons chasing or attacking you is most likely related to your waking life rather than something supernatural. It is possible you are feeling especially threatened by some situation in your life, either physically or emotionally. You may be dealing with some sort of anxiety or anger that you are unaware of consciously.
Dreaming of being chased or attacked by demons may show that you are afraid to confront your own darker side. You are subconsciously pushing out all that is undesirable within your psyche. Another explanation for this type of nightmare could be that you are feeling threatened by someone or something in your waking life; perhaps an otherworldly being has taken an interest in you and is threatening you with some wrathful judgment. If this is the case, you may be projecting what you cannot accept about yourself onto the dreamscape.
You feel like demons are attacking you; you are not safe, and there is no escape.
The feeling of being attacked can represent many things: anger, frustration, sadness, or even fear. The more “physical” the attack feels, the more likely it represents feelings about a situation in your waking life.
You have Seen falling demons
If you are dreaming of seeing demons falling from above, this may represent a fall from grace. In other words, it could be suggesting that you have acted in a way, which is going to lead to repercussions. Perhaps some responsibility is going to fall upon your shoulders, and you are unprepared for what lies ahead. Alternatively, the dream could be a pun on “being doomed,” meaning something is in the process of falling apart in your life, and you are headed in a downward spiral.
Suppose you are witnessing demons falling from above in your dream. You may be aware of something they are doing that is hurting others, which appears to be the “fall” you are witnessing (and perhaps reliving in). In that case, this may indicate that there is something very wrong with someone else’s behavior or actions. Maybe it represents how you feel about what they are doing.
You face your innermost fears
Dreaming of demons often represents feelings and thoughts that we have cast away as unworthy, bad, or nasty. Instead of trying to suppress such feelings with over-the-counter pills and remedies, those who genuinely grow as individuals learn to accept their “demons” as a natural part of life. They embrace this dichotomy within themselves and allow it to make them stronger.
You can overcome your strong character
Dreaming about overcoming your strong character speaks a lot about your personality. You do not shy away from instilling character traits from people you want to emulate or role models for you. This is because you know that you can use these traits to make your personality even more potent than what you initially are.
You can accept your past and focus on the future
Dreaming about accepting your past and focus on the future suggests, you are a person who does not believe in sulking over the past mistakes that happened knowingly or unknowingly. You take failures as stepping stones rather than obstacles to pave the road for your future endeavors.
