Dreams about evil spirits are one of the most common types of nightmares.
These dreams are one of the most terrifying and unpleasant dreams in general; they are related to some of the strongest emotions people are able to experience, such as fear, anger and sadness.
These dreams are generally considered negative, but that does not have to be your case. It greatly depends on how you feel during and after the dream.
Let us first think about evil spirits. Evil spirits are all sorts of demoniac forms that have been keeping troubling our minds since the dawn of time. We use to say he or she ‘has their own demons’; the same is with evil spirits.
However, spirits are somewhat more abstract. They are usually considered to be an energetic evil influence, rather than a demoniac creature or a being.
Evil spirits could take many forms, but they could also be invisible. In all cases, humans are able to feel their presence or think they feel it.
Since old times, people have been trying to explain negative things happening to them by ascribing bad energy to some form of supernatural, hellish existence.
Evil spirits are exactly that; they are something out of us, something that messes with our own positive energy and sabotage us, many times without any logical reason.
The activity of evil spirits is analyzed by psychics, spiritualists and so on.
When an evil spirit comes to your dream, it usually means something important, unless you have consumed too many fantasy, horror and science fiction movies, books or something related.
In many cases, dreams about evil spirits are just a reflection of something we have recently seen, related to such themes. However, if such dreams come out of nowhere, there must be something more to it.
