Dreaming of being possessed by the devil, of fighting with the devil

The dream can represent the strength of what is inside you and that is struggling to emerge; your repressed impulses, but well alive and present, just waiting to be reintegrated into your life. The dream can end with you being able to drive out the devil or kill him; but you still have to love yourself more, including the less beautiful sides of your personality: the ‘devil’ must be loved, not repressed or fought; it is precisely in this way that you will be able to win it. Dreaming of being possessed by the devil can also represent a strong insecurity and loss of control of one’s life, perhaps caused by a childhood trauma that you have removed from your memory.

Dreaming of children possessed by the devil

Frequent in dreams is the encounter with children or babies possessed by the devil. They are threatening and disturbing presences, they want to hurt you and kill you. The child in dreams represents your ‘inner child’, which is the most spontaneous, natural and instinctive part of your personality; seeing him possessed indicates that you do not have a good relationship with your ‘inner child’; there is something you don’t like about your character; instead, you must learn to love and reintegrate all sides of your personality into your life.

Dreaming of becoming the devil

Dreaming of turning into the Devil could depend on the need to vent your repressed anger; it could also be a way to gain power and transgress moral duties. Also in this case, the dream probably means to tell you that you need to loosen certain ‘valves’, to let out parts of you that are in the shade.

Dreaming good devil

Dreaming of a good devil, or of being a friend of the devil, of shaking his hand, etc. it can indicate that you are easily influenced and manipulated. Beware of those who approach you, they could have ulterior motives and exploit your weaknesses.
