Not sure where this should go, so I'll put it here and hope for the best.
The past few months, I've been plagued with awful nightmares, resulting in only an hour of sleep per night. I've learned to live with this, however the past few weeks, the nightmares have been getting gradually worse and worse. This brings me to last night.
Last night, I had a horrible - potentially the worst I've ever had - nightmare. I woke up wanting to scream, yet I couldn't. I was paralysed. This is the first time I've been subjected to sleep paralysis.
Now, my question to you is this; how can I stop this from happening again? I've tried praying to the Lord to stop the nightmares and they lessened, but didn't stop. Is there any ritual or blessing or anything I can do to stop this?
