It is not all that uncommon for me to have dreams about being haunted, having spirits appeal to me to listen to them, or even spiritual warfare with evil forces trying to conquer me. That last type of dream is especially exhausting. The other night I dreamt that the spirit of a woman wanted my help and then she turned out to be he who shall not be named (I don’t mean Voldemort) in disguise trying to trick me. Then several sullied spirits appeared in the room as part of the scare attack. Spiritual defense alone kept me unharmed but did not make them go away. However, I recall that by the time one spirit got to me I decided to ask God to forgive and cleanse the spirit and welcome her into Heaven. That was what the doctor ordered. I woke up shortly after that. It was maybe around 4:30 in the morning. I was more tired than I was when I went to sleep. Thank God and Goddess I am not Allison DuBois or Melinda Gordon (I know the second one is fictional, but she fits in this case). I had to force myself to stay awake for half an hour or so. I have found that going right back to sleep after a nightmare seems to make more nightmares likely. I found it especially difficult to ground and stay awake. I was able to get some decent sleep when I drifted off again. I was not particularly grounded for the rest of the day though. It contributed to an extraordinarily lazy day. I probably needed a lazy day though after that tiring night. Do you sometimes have unpleasant astral adventures during dream time? If you feel you really need a break with some refreshing sleep, you can try telling your higher self to keep your astral body inside your physical body while you sleep. I also ask Divine to make sure of that.
May you all have peaceful slumber. Blessed be.
