So I'm not exactly sure, but I think maybe I was attacked by an Incubus last night in my sleep. I had a rather vivid dream that felt insanely real, right down to scent and movement and I remember feeling myself breathe. I'm used to having vivid dreams, but this was something else. In my dream, I was being held down by a very large man, and I was telling him to stop. I was crying, pushing at him, but he forced himself on me. I felt pain, and I felt everything. I felt where he was touching me... And thinking on it, I'm fairly certain it was an Incubus that attacked me. I've attempted work with demons in the past, so perhaps I had invited him into my life at one of those points and he only just now took advantage of that welcome? I'm not sure... Any help would be amazing.
How do you know for sure it was an incubus and not another vivid dream? If it is some unfriendly entity, you could perform a banishing ritual of the pentagram before bed, calling on the archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel for protection. There are a number of ways you can make protective talismans to keep on your person like mojo bags or even a symbol drawn on paper.
I can tell you from personal experience that painful dreams do happen, but I reckon it wasn't an attack. More likely you were feeling actual pain in your sleep (for me it's anything from lumbar pain to gas that can cause this), and the pain made your dream sharper because you were running on adrenaline released due to the combo of pain and dream of danger.
Long story short, more than likely nothing to worry about unless it starts happening really frequently, then you'll have to sort out the root of the pain :)
Hope this helps :)
There's a dream interpretation that says if you dream of rape that means you feel the opposite sex is taking advantage of you in real life... I would suggest just trying to look into what's been happening to you lately that would cause such a disturbing dream. You could take some time to cleanse your aura and try to calm down.
The Vatican claims that these are the oldest and most common form of Demon attacks,common symptoms are
Feeling of another presence in the room with you
Feeling a weight on your chest,not being able to breath or scream
Actually hearing the voice and feeling the pain
Suggested cures are having a priest come and bless the room and have religious items all over the bedroom.
They aren't what you think. Little hard to explain and took a long time to put the pieces together. They are emotional. They respond to emotions and act upon them. Call it judgement, like facing yourself.
Release your fears for yourself and see beyond. They are like children. The negative vibe and energy you feel is just energy. Sadly your brain makes it feel oppressive or evil. They sense emotions so will act or play upon your response.
They aren't hostile though, but appear that way when confronted with negativity.
The best outlook is to see them as scared lost kids hiding behind scary masks for safety. Keep it in mind and hopefully it'll break for you too.
You dont get it often in most cases. It seems like theres a weak barrier like a veil but there are also the equivalent of police among us.
Has this happened before? This kind of spirit sounds like a sort of hybrid between the mare and the incubus. You don't have to invite these into your space they can just show up and some people have lifetimes of visitations by these kinds of spirits. My mother has had these experiences since she was 18 years old. Many will say oh it's sleep paralysis and your mind creates the entity etc. Which is fine but none of that makes it any less real or vivid for the person experiencing it. Similar to theurgy I suppose. I know a few people who claim to have ongoing positive relationships with these sorts of entities as well as negative or indifferent positions. I'm surprised that parapsychologists give this more attention than supposed "practicing magicians".
