Night Terrors: Why Do Psychics Have Bad Dreams?
When I was growing up, each night when I fell asleep, I fell asleep afraid of what I might see. My dreams, were worse than what I ever saw when I was awake and in fact, as I got older, my nightmares became more like night terrors.
Waking up each night, jumping out of bed, screaming in fear, and unable to calm myself down - my father comforted me, “Don’t worry Amanda, I have them too.” A adult man, also a medium, who still hadn’t grown out of his nightmares.
And here, I’d always hoped it was just a phase.
As I got older, my nightmares - which were always so real, I could never tell if they were dreams - they subsided, only resurfacing every now and again.
When did my nightmares really stop, once and for all?
That’s easy. There’s a firm line in history of when my sleepless nights stopped haunting me:
When I became a medium, for real.
My nightmares stopped when I started talking to Spirits and not being afraid of them anymore. My nights became more peaceful when I started walking away from old relationships that no longer served me. My evenings more calm when I started to share with others who I really was.
So on the blog, I now get a lot of questions about night terrors and their cause - especially from budding mediums or psychics. And, it begs the question,
Are Night Terrors Caused By Evil Spirits?
Since I have always been visited by Spirits and since Spirit does tend to visit at night, it’s only reasonable to assume that good Spirits create good dreams and bad Spirits create bad dreams.
Spirit does like to communicate with you in dream, but if you are having a nightmare, it’s likely not caused by a ‘bad’ Spirit. You’ve got good Spirits by your side protecting you from that.
But, your good Spirits can’t protect you from receiving the messages you need to receive.
Nightmares and night terrors are caused by a Discord. A pull and a push. A battle.
When you are awake, you are easily allowed to ignore things about your life that you’d rather not deal with. Ignoring the difficult stuff make life easier. You can ignore Spirits who try to whisper your name, you can ignore that you’re in a relationship that you’re really not happy with, you can ignore the fact that your coworker is always humiliating you - and just get on with the next day. When you’re a child, you can ignore a volatile home life or a problem at school - you can stuff that down inside.
You can create boundaries. You can create walls. And these walls, keep anything that is disharmonious to you, as far away from you as possible.
However, when you dream, you aren’t awake to consciously keep your wall up, to consciously keep out the discord - the mismatch. So, these real battles you are subconsciously fighting seep into your soul - into your aura - and then, they play out in your dreams.
Your night terrors are likely caused by a discord situation that you are involved in.
If you are experiencing a nightmare, chances are, it’s due to an area of discord in your life.
One that you may have control over to fix and restore to harmony.
If you see Spirits, admit it to yourself.
If you sense other people’s emotions, come to terms with it.
If you hate your job, quit.
If someone is being a bully to you, stand up to them.
Why would your angels and guides let these nightmares happen, if they love you?
Well, in your life, you might be too busy trying to pretend that everything is totally cool and fine and great. So, they can’t let you know something disharmonious to your soul is going on during the day - because you might just ignore those signs, too.
So, the only time they can cue you in to something wrong in your life, may be just when your guard is down - when you sleep.
By providing you with a visual scene to describe a situation to you, they are assisting you in understanding a situation so that it may be resolved.
If in your dreams, you are fighting off the devil - it’s probably not the actual devil, but a force that is keeping you from manifesting yourself in your highest and greatest good. In fact, any situation in your life that does not resonate or reflect who you feel you are as a person is a discord.
Night terrors, rather than visitations from the Dark, are actually cues to you that something in your life needs to be brought to harmony.
For me, it was admitting to myself that I saw, sense and felt Spirit.
With that, over 20 years of nightmares stopped dead in their tracks.
