I’m aware that demons cannot hear our thoughts. I’m also aware that they can push their way into dreams and at least present images. I wonder how much a demon gets to see my reaction to their attacks in my dreams.
I have finally learned to invoke St. Mary or St. Michael’s help - or say, “In the name of Jesus Christ, leave!” in my dreams - and once I do that, the evil vanishes. That seems to mean that spiritual warfare is going on and that demons at least find out if I defend myself.
I do not discuss my dreams (or write them down, or anything) because I think this gives the enemy information that they can use to present further trouble for me. At first, I did discuss my dreams, and their attacks were far more effective. Now, the attacks have become feeble. But, I am just a bit concerned that just writing down what I’ve done so far in this post is going to help them with their attacks. I will pray all the more in that event.
(My house is blessed, holy water everywhere, blessed salt everywhere. I enrolled in the brown scapular and wear it all the time along with a crucifix and a Benedictine medal. This seems to have stopped the direct attacks, but dreams are another story. Also, I doubt that I’m in need of an exorcist as this all started after I prayed to carry the spiritual burdens of others.)
My question is: do demons get to “interact” with me in my dreams? Or do they just project images and hope that I follow them to my destruction? If anyone knows about this, I’d appreciate the help.
