This one isn't for me, but my babe. Like me, he suffers from night terror's. Obviously there are TONS of rituals to rid him of those, but what has worked for others? I want to make sure what I do has had effect for another. Also, if it goes wrong my child wont have to deal with the consequences right? THey come back on me? Its weird, I know what scares him and I think I know where spirits hide, or whatever is there, like I feel them . And it seems when my son is close to these objects or places I can feel them strongly he has a reaction to it.
Lexie how old is your daughter? Just curious, I find it pretty offensive that these spirits affect my little one, like I get pretty peaved. I never hear of other kids really having issues except being scared of the dark, but my 4 year old explains things in a way that, just...wow...he sees things that hes never seen...hes talked about falling off a cliff and his dad didnt get to the rope in time to save him. He only knows what hills are. And he knows what a cord is, but hes never played with rope or seen a lasso lol...and he describes "monsters" as dark, sharp teetch, and other in depth things a 4 your old shouldnt know...things I knew at that age bc of my dreams too, but im 26 I want the nightmares gone of course, but my main concern is my toddler experiencing the same things I did and it continuing.
I think that was someone else but yeah dream pillows are little pillows that you make and stuff by hand with herbs and things to promote sleep and good dreams, they can also be used for influencing prophetic dreams and other such things but for you two I would suggest just things to ward off evil and bring peace.
I'd also try and explain to your child that they are in control, even if you think they aren't or can't tell them that they have a power in dreams to change what happens. Tell them when they don't like what's happening to change it to something they do like, turn the monsters into fluffy animals and have a game of hide and seek, call the wind and let it teach you how to fly, anything. Sometimes telling kids with confidence that they have a gift is all they need.
Just give him a lot of ideas and talk to him in advance about what he's going to dream about. You could even insert yourself into it by saying that if he calls for you in your dreams then you will scare the monsters away. It's usually enough for kids to hear it from mommy that if he has a nightmare Superhero Mom will come and beat the bad guys up in their dreams.
My grandmother and my brother sometimes suffer from this as well. I didn't do any sort of ritual, but I did make what I like to call a sleep vial. I filled a glass vial with 3 bay leafs, 2 rose petals, a little piece of lettuce, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/3 teaspoon of each rosemary, thyme, chamomile, lavender, and sage, then 1 moonstone, and 2 tiny seashells. After adding all of that, charge it with your good energy and seal it with white candle wax before putting the top on. This is the strongest sleep spell I have. I hope it helps if you decide to use it.
