What Does It Mean When You Dream About Demons?
Demons! Since the dawn of human civilization and our first attempts to explain the bad things that were happening to us by attributing them to mysterious supernatural forces, we have been using this frightening term. What are demons?
They can be found in almost every culture and tradition around the world. No matter the nature of a particular belief system, it certainly has its own demons.
We often say that he or she has his or her own demons if a person feels down and struggles with his or her own thoughts and emotions. In modern times we probably say that we all have “our own demons”.
Throughout human history, demons have been present everywhere. Various religious systems, spiritual paths, traditions and so on have tried to understand how this world works.
We are often unable to explain the world by logic, reason and science, so we attribute various phenomena to the influence of forces that are beyond our understanding and imagination.
Demons are “the bad ones”, while angels and other benevolent spirits are seen as good, positive and helpful.
We tend to look at the world in dualities; you have night and day, darkness and light, good and evil, fortune and misfortune, and so on.
All these concepts need some kind of incarnation; this is where, for example, demons and angels come in. Right!
Perhaps you really doubt all this and don’t give a single word about some imagined supernatural entities.
However, you can still have dreams about such things. The human imagination is a vast, unexplored and not yet fully understood area.
Demons are, to say the least, everywhere. They are present in religion, spiritualism, folklore, popular culture, art, and so on. Demons are common reasons used to help us express our fears, worries and concerns. It’s much easier to deal with misfortune if you give it a body, a face, and a shape.
We each face our own demons, whether they are our personal demons or those sent by evil forces. It all depends on what you personally believe.
