Sleepwalking Spiritual Meaning: Do Evil Spirits Cause It?

Do you sleepwalk? Or do you know someone who sleepwalks? Sleepwalking or also called somnambulism, is a behavior that happens during deep sleep, which results in walking or doing other things while asleep. It is more common in children than adults, and it shows a variety of behaviors, such as cleaning the house, switching the lights on and off, walking around the house, and many more. The cause of sleepwalking can be psychological or spiritual.

The spiritual cause of sleepwalking is when the person is actively engaged in a real-time spiritual encounter. When you sleep, the spirit is active and wide awake; it is only the body that rests. During sleep, the connection between the body and the spirit is reduced, or there could be disconnection; therefore, the body will do whatever the thoughts of his spirit.

On the other hand, sleepwalking is also believed to be caused by the possession and manipulation of evil spirits, demons, ghosts, witches, and black energies. Many people don't know that evil spirits can take possession of people and use the possessed person to get what the evil spirit wants. 

In psychological terms, the cause of sleepwalking can be due to his mental recollections of everyday activities and expectations. Many believe that if a person is sleeping or out of his body and you touch him and change his posture, he will die.

Why do I wake up at 3:15 every morning?

From a spiritual perspective, the meaning when you're waking up between 3:00 am, and 5:00 am could be a symptom of spiritual awakening. This period coincides with the witching hour, which is sometimes seen as from 3:00 am to 5:00 am, or 2:00 am to 4:00 am.

Either way, it's about these early morning hours where the veil is thin.

With this, waking up at this time could be a call from the spirit. It could be a call from your team of guides and angels or a call from your soul.

It's when it's somehow easier to make a clear spiritual connection; therefore, your spirit guidescould reach out to you to get you to become alert at that moment. It is because you can progress in your awakening and expansion of your consciousness to unlock further levels of your clairvoyant perceptions and receive higher guidance that's available to you to guide and support you.

Notice yourself when you wake up during these hours regularly; you often wake up in this window to receive spiritual guidance that helps you get on track with the purpose of your soul, soul work, and soul mission. During this period, you have easy access to the educational state, wherein it's the state of consciousness between being awake and asleep.

You're not fully awake and grounded in waking reality, but you're not fully asleep and anchored in the dream world.

The good thing is that you have a foot in both worlds. The hypnotic stage is conducive to activating clairvoyant perception and tuning in to higher guidance and clear spiritual sight.

Alternatively, being in the hypnotic state can be a portal into the astral world. Things such as astral travel or out-of-body experiences are readily available.

When you wake up this time, like a hypnic jerk, you may take this opportunity to connect with the spirit to become receptive and aware of the higher guidance available to you.

Sleepwalking causes

Sleepwalking is defined as when someone walks or perform complex activities while not fully awake. It usually happens during a period of deep sleep and peaks during the early part of the night.

Therefore, sleepwalking happens in the first few hours after falling asleep.

Sleepwalking can start at any age, but it's more common in children. It's said that for every five children, one child will sleepwalk at least once.

Most grow out of it upon reaching puberty but sometimes persist into adulthood. Medically speaking, sleepwalking is unknown, but it can be caused by genetics.

You're more likely to sleepwalk when other family members have sleepwalking behaviors.

However, some things can trigger sleepwalking or worsen, such as not getting enough sleep, stress or anxiety, drinking too much alcohol, taking certain types of medicine, and many more. Other sleep disorders can trigger a sleepwalking episode and cause you to wake up at night, such as obstructive sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome.

In some sleepwalking episodes, a person may sit up in bed and look around, appearing confused. Others may get out of bed and walk, get dressed, eat, and appear agitated.

In severe cases, the person may walk out of the house and do complex activities, such as driving a car. People who sleepwalk have eyes open, although the person will look straight through people and not recognize them.

They often move well around familiar objects; therefore, they may respond or say things that don't make sense if you talk to a sleepwalking person.

Most sleepwalking episodes can last for less than 10 minutes or longer. At the end of each episode, the person may wake up or return to bed and go to sleep.

Typically, these people don't remember it or may have a patch memory. If woken while sleepwalking, this person might feel confused and don't remember what happened.

When you see someone sleepwalking, make sure that they are safe. If these people are undisturbed, they will often go back to sleep again.

Guide them carefully to bed by reassuring them. Do not shout or startle the person, and do not try to physically restrain them unless they are in danger because they may lash out.

As mentioned a while ago, that spiritual factors could also be the cause of sleepwalking. It's one of the reasons why modern science has not been able to come up with a cure for sleepwalking.

During sleepwalking, more gruesome acts include having sexual interactions with strangers, murdering, etc. They are orchestrated by higher negative energies, such as sorcerers, also known as mantriks. 

According to spiritual science, even though an act may have happened because the person is under the complete influence of a ghost, they still have to face karmic or spiritual repercussions for it. These spiritual repercussions are in the form of demerits that play out either in this life or the next.

However, the demerits incurred are reduced if the person murdered his own volition's waking or conscious state. If the cause of the sleepwalking is spiritual, then the demerits earned are less.

Sleepwalking treatment spiritually

Sleepwalkers in the spiritual dimension can perceive the subtle vibrations emitted by people and objects. They can receive divine knowledge through an advanced level of the sixth sense.

These negative energies can attack spiritually vulnerable people and people who are surrounded by lots of negativity around them. This negative energy starts entering the person's body through the head. 

Once it enters, it will control the person's body, mind, and intellect. It uses negative emotions or personality defects of the person to do it.

Moreover, if the person has strong desires, they use those desires to get what they want. Because they are possessed by negative energy, these people will start behaving entirely as per the wish of the negative energy and lose their consciousness.

When it comes to the myth about not waking up sleepwalkers, whether it's caused by psychological or spiritual, it's better to wake this person. If the root cause of the sleepwalking is due to a ghost and the act by itself is a manifestation, then waking them up will help you end the manifestation of the entity.

If the root cause is psychological, it's best to wake them up to prevent them from causing harm to themselves or others.

If the root cause of sleepwalking is spiritual, then it's best to apply a spiritual solution even though one may be tempted to treat a physical or psychological disorder. Spiritual measures can provide relief to both physical and psychological symptoms.

There are some things you can specifically do for sleep disorders.

First is, you can chant for spiritual protection, like Chant Shri Gurudev Datta. This chant for protection has been found effective through spiritual research.

It will help you overcome the causes of sleepwalking due to spiritual reasons. 

You should do it for a minimum of two hours a day, which can be increased to 5 hours if the problem is severe. Then, while chanting, you can also try nyas at the Swādhishṭhān-chakra.

It can increase the effectiveness of the chant. You can also try other measures, such as sleeping in the East-West direction, avoiding sleeping around sunset, avoiding spiritually impure foods at night, not sleeping on the back of the stomach, sleeping on the left side.

Moreover, lighting a ghee lamp at night (ghee is clarified butter from an Indian cow) and chanting while going to sleep can also help spiritual healing.

Remember that regular spiritual practice, such as chanting, can be a preventative and curative measure to fight off spiritual problems and enhance one's spiritual level.

Aside from Sleepwalking, there are also instances that happen in our sleep that may seem weird and hold various meanings, such as laughing.
