Dreams are a big part of our life. We dream during the day about the things and wishes we would like to occur in our lives. We have a portion of our mind that is set apart for creativity and creation can be the outpouring of the soul. Lucid dreams are sought after as well as astral visions and astral projections. Yet what do we do when someone invades our dreams and tries to harm us?
People astral project with out knowing it and explore the different planes in their dreams. They do not have enough energy to remember it but we all have this talent. Yet if we have no memory and no control of astral projection the person will have no conscious memory of dreams. People who want to remember dreams write down their dreams the moment they awake or the dream fades away during the day.
Dream invasion is the ability of others to insert themselves into a person’s dreams in such a way as to cause them harm. Many past authors have mentioned people who do this to others including Dion Fortune in her book Psychic Self Defense. They say it was on the astral plane her example of a woman attacking her happened. Yet it was probably the real time plane or Etheric plane to get results that happened physically.
Astral magic involves accessing and creating things in the etheric plane and pulling these into this reality. Others can do this also when they have a link or connection to you such as a photograph or handwriting. Every one has an energy signature on the astral plane levels. It is the tones, notes, vibrations, colors, and pitch of the energies that show what we are made of and what type of person we are in life.
The link, objects or connections to you from knowing you in person make you accessible when you dream. In many countries this is the main type of magical attack and it has killed many people. I have mentioned how you can draw down the energies of good into your life. The people who harm others draw down the things they want into your dreams. The victims do not know how to take control of their dreams and have horrible nightmares.
I had someone try this on me a few years ago. He/she thought he/she would frighten me and appear as a werewolf in the corner of the room. It woke me up halfway and I could see the outline of the werewolf.
I decided to have some fun.
I went back to sleep. He/she was acting like a werewolf with mange.
I said, “You did a very poor werewolf. This is a real werewolf.”
I changed into a real werewolf in the dream and the other vanished. The next day I saw the person in the store. He/she saw me and ran out of the store shouting, “Do not look at her. Do not look at her.”
Dream invasion is about intentions, implementation and visualization. Yet people can take control of their dreams and prevent problems. Many people do not feel they can do this so I will list some simple protective methods that will help people who are at different levels of along their life path. Everyone can control their dreams and what happens in them even if they just call upon their guardians in the dream.
Prayer is good as a remedy as many nighttime prayers cover everything that could bother you. The Nighttime Shema in Judaism is an example of this. The psalms are good also for those who want to set the mood.
Pagans can call upon deities such as Hekate to protect them during their sleep and make a prayer of it. Every religion has a nighttime prayer and that is a good way to start the defensive energies before you go to bed.
Next is the bed itself. Many people become afraid to go to sleep. Putting salt and herbs between the mattress and box springs helps with this. I also suggest to many people that they place an object of iron that is flat between the box springs and mattress. Iron disrupts many types of magical influences.
One method I have heard of involves a knife stuck into the floor and copper wire strung in a big X to each leg of the bed frame. Each strange of copper is wired around the knife so the iron and copper disrupts any dream energies.
Most people do not like a knife stuck in their floor (Go figure!) , so I always suggest salt and herbs. Dream pillows can be made also. They are narrow and have herbs of protection in them with drawn symbols of protection upon them. I have seen dream pillows that have beautiful embroidery and are very protective.
Talismans and religious symbols can also be placed between the mattress and box springs to build up more protection. Dream Catchers can also be used but should have protective symbols tied to the inside web.
The next step is to program your mind.
People are afraid of nightmares but their mind is what produces the environment for the nightmares to be inserted. It means that the victim themselves is always in control of their dreams. They allow their fear and lack of knowledge to be in control. They do not know how to set it up where their dreams are in their control no matter what others try to do to them.
Prayers set the mood for the mind to have faith that nothing bad will happen to them. They are protected and safe. Yet having something unnatural inserted into your dreams is traumatic and something that panics almost everyone. So the first thing is to control the panic and fear.
I always have people say at least 13 times “I will wake up if anything scares me or upsets me in my dreams.”
It means that if all of sudden your enemies are standing there with a gun or trying to make you eat something then you wake up. Eating food and objects from your enemies in dreams is a way to insert those cursed objects and food into your energy body. It affects your whole etheric body and throws the energies off. The disharmonies in the energies build up and the person becomes ill, or has horrible luck. If you wake up then nothing can happen.
This can cause sleep problems but I always feel that is preferable to the other problems. The real cure is to put protective methods into effect and say, “I am in control of my dreams and anything that tries to scare me I will scare and turn back the energies 13 times 13.”
It is our dream and we are the heroes or heroines of them.
We can do this with defending ourselves also. We do not need to stay human in our dreams. we can turn into a dragon and blast flame. We can create things that dissolve the evil that is done. We can call upon help and have our calls answered.
The control of our dreams is easy and the only time energies cannot be removed is if we have the gift of prophecy and see something to try to help others.
Repeating the phrases creates a form of self-hypnosis and mental programming in your subconscious, which makes your dreams safe. The person also has to have faith that the divine is more powerful than anything done against them.
The people who could not get these methods to work always accepted that others could harm them in their dreams. They allowed their control to be given away and accepted blame for things they did not do in the dreams. They also were sure they could not defend themselves.
So the main thing is to empower your dreams with the knowledge that the divine will help you. You do not have to accept what is shown in your dreams nor do you have to do what others tell you to do.
If you see magic ceremonies being done in your dreams and know you are the focal point, wake up and do protective prayers and ceremonies. You can also become invisible.
The only way you can be harmed is if you give up your faith and belief in yourself. You are the one in control.
