Demons! Since the dawn of human civilization and our first attempts to explain bad things that had been happening to us by ascribing them to mysterious supernatural forces, we have been using this scary term. What are demons?
They are to be found in almost every culture and tradition around the world. No matter of the nature of particular system of belief, it surely has its own demons.
We use to say that he or she has their own demons, if a person feels down and struggles with his or hers own thoughts and emotions. In modern times, we are likely to say that we all have ‘our own demons’.
Throughout human history, demons are present everywhere. Various religious systems, spiritual paths, traditions and so on, have been trying to comprehend the way in which this world functions.
Many times we are unable to explain the world by logic, reason and science, so we ascribe various phenomena to the influence of forces that are beyond our comprehension and imaginations.
Demons are ‘the bad ones’, while angels and other benevolent spirits are seen good, positive and helpful.
We tend to observe the world in dualities; you have night and day, darkness and light, good and evil, fortune and misfortune and so on.
All of these concepts need some sort of embodiment; that is where, for example, demons and angels step in. Okay!
Maybe you really doubt all of this and do not give a single thing about some imagined supernatural entities.
However, you could still have dreams about such things. Human imagination is a vast, unexplored and still not completely understood area.
Demons are, to say, everywhere. They are present in religion, spiritualism, folklore, popular culture, art and so on. Demons are common motifs used to help us express our fears, worries and concerns. It is much easier to deal with misfortune if you give it a body, a face and shape.
Every one of us faces their own demons, whether those were our personal demons or those sent by forces of evil. It all depends on what you personally believe.
However, seeing demons in dreams is surely not a pleasant experience, no matter of what you actually think of supernatural powers.
