Spiritual Warfare 101: Victory over Sleep Paralysis and Night Terror

Night terrors and Sleep Paralysis have been a phenomenon, possibly for thousands of years. 

My experience is that it is demonic and that it can be easily dealt with. I used to live in fear of it until God told me what to do during an attack.  I know what it is like to be the victim of sleep paralysis and I know what it is like to helplessly watch my own child under attack night after night and not know how to stop it. Now I live in faith, never ever fearing it because I know that all I have to do is think in my mind, "In the name of Jesus Christ!" and the demonic is instantly broken.  I rarely have this happen to me any more and if it does it is totally broken when I call upon the name of Jesus Christ.

In this article I will share some of my own stories as well as provide information that will help you put a stop to sleep paralysis and night terrors. 

I begin by sharing this VERY excellent video by Christ White which defines, describes and gives the remedy to defeat both night terrors and sleep paralysis.

How to Stop Sleep Paralysis For Good - Chris White -

I hope you will check out the wealth of info at Chris White's web site: 

Below are notes I put together from a Chris White video that is no longer available:

Common causes:
1.) If you have been involved with occult on various levels even light occult practices. (Ouija Board, Tarot Cards, certain types of meditation, channeling and even obsessive research of the occult can be the cause for some people.)

2.) The deeper one goes into the occult the more doors are opened and the more authority the demons have over you. 

3.) Generational doors have been opened by someone in your family line by occult involvement. 

4.) Highly demonized object in your possession. Most anything can have been demonized, given demonic attachments in certain rituals. 

The secret in stopping sleep paralysis is through the authority of Jesus Christ. 

Luke 9: 1
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

1 John 3: 8
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Luke 10: 19-20
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Calling upon Jesus Christ will work even if person isn't a Christian as long as the person is calling out in sincerity and not using it as a magic word.

If you are not a Christian, the demons may continue to attack as long as they have authority over you because either you or someone else has given it to them. They will continue to have this until you renounce them and give your life to Jesus.

1.) Recognize - You must recognize what it is.
2.) Responsibility - You must take responsibility for what you recognize.
3.) Repent to God for participating with what you recognize.

Acts 3:19 - Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
4.) Renounce - You must make what you recognize your enemy and renounce it.
Renounce generational sin. Ask Jesus to help close those doors.
5.) Remove it - Get rid of it once and for all. You must close the doors, not leave them half open. 
6.) Resist - When it tries to come back, resist it. You must be bold if it comes back. Show no mercy on them, they must obey the authority of Christ. 
7.) Rejoice - Give God thanks for setting you free. 
8.) Restore - Help someone else get free. 

Jesus Christ will give you the power to be more like him.

~ My own story of sleep paralysis and what turned my fear into faith ~

I have found that when sleep paralysis happens to me, that even if I can not say the words, "In the Name of Jesus Christ", that just thinking them is enough to break the force field. I have gotten so accustomed to doing that, that now even when I am asleep, if a demon enters a dream, I am able to defeat it by merely thinking the words, "In the Name of Jesus Christ". Sometimes the demons are persistent, but so am I. They must leave...and they do. I do not take no for an answer because I know they have to go. It is spiritual Law.

I also take time to strengthen my faith in God's promises (which IS spiritual Law) by finding scriptures that state his promises and speak of His protection. Psalm 91 and Psalm 23 are Psalms of protection. God's promises are spiritual Law set by Him, the Creator of the universe. God's Law IS the Law of the universe. 

One night, about 27 years ago, shortly after I left the organization, I detected an evil presence in my bed room. I was fully awake. I saw a shadow person with a hat on it's head. It came to the side of my bed. To my surprise, it touched me and at the same time it created a force field around me that paralyzed me. It's touch was like a solid hand. As it touched me I felt it was filthy in a sexual nature. I felt violated just by it's touch and panicky as it began moving it's hand to a more private area on my body. I used every bit of strength I had to move my head enough to see my husband sleeping next to me. I desperately tried to call out for help but my sounds were soft and muffled through my closed lips.

Then, something in my mind told me to think, "In the Name of Jesus Christ!". What did I have to lose? I was desperate, so that is exactly what I did, I thought it in my mind, "In the Name of Jesus Christ!". When I did that, the hand pulled from me and I felt the force field swirl around and around and lift off of me and leave ,taking the filthy evil entity with it.

Though the entity was gone, I felt marinated in filth. It was like I could still feel the dirt of where it had touched me. I cried out to God. I told Him how filthy I felt and asked Him to please cleanse me. I knew that only God could cleanse the evil filth that was on me. 

Then, I heard what I know was God speaking to me. He said, "Wake your husband up. Tell him what just happened to you, then ask him to pray for you and to claim you as his flesh."

I told God, "I can't do that. He won't believe me and I don't think he would pray for me anyway."

Then God said again the words He had said before. 

So, I woke my husband up and told him what had just happened to me. Rather than my husband tell me that I was imagining it and to go back to sleep, he actually took me in his arms and held me and in his sleepy voice and half closed eyes, he offered up a prayer to God to cleanse me. He did just as I God suggested, and claimed me as his flesh and asked God to be our spiritual covering. 

I never had a demon attack me like that again. It was a bad experience, but it taught me to have faith in the Name of Jesus Christ". 

From that experience, I learned the meaning of faith. I have total confidence from experience that even just thinking the name of Jesus Christ will definitely stop the attack. Therefore, I have peace and I do not ever fear such an attack ever again. 

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: 
and he is the saviour of the body.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. 

He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

This is a great mystery: but I [Apostle Paul] speak concerning Christ and the church.

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

~ Night Terrors and Children - A personal experience ~

Shortly after I left what I call "the organization" (the Luciferian/Satanic hierarchy), one of my sons, who had always been a peaceful sleeper began to suffer night terrors. I knew of no trauma or anything in his environment that would have suddenly brought about such a change. My son began to fear bed time and being alone, complaining of "monster faces" that appeared to him. Often he would wake up at night screaming, his body tense, his face with an expression of utter terror. He seemed to see things that weren't there, often shielding himself from invisible attacks. One time he kept screaming over and over, "I don't like it when they touch me like that!" while he made frantic motions to brush himself off.  Sometimes he would scream out in what seemed to be an unknown tongue during his battles. My son, who appeared to be awake seemed trapped in a strange hold, like he was stuck in another world, though at times he could hear my husband and me trying to reach him. Other times it seemed he couldn't hear us at all.  Sometimes he would break through and seem to have a conscious moment with us only to be snatched away again. During these times I would hold him if he would let me. 

I knew very little about spiritual warfare. The only thing I could think to do was to say "In the name of Jesus Christ!". I would try to get my son to say it also. 

It was like trying to reach him in a dark tunnel with a lifeline, but he could not see nor hear us tell him it was there. When we would finally get through to him, when he finally heard us telling him to say the name of Jesus Christ, he would then scream it at the top of his lungs. This seemed to make a break in his terror and bring him back, though it was not instantaneous.

I was at my wits end on how to help my son. I sought out fellow Christians to see if they had any suggestions, but no one knew enough about spiritual warfare other than to just smile sweetly, pat me and say, I'll be praying for you."

It was later through my contact with Johanna Michaelsen that my husband and I were finally counseled with wise and Godly counsel and given prayer support which helped bring an end to my son's night terrors.

Johanna Michaelsen recommended that I pray daily for my children, claiming the covering of the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ over them and to go into their rooms after they had fallen asleep and pray for them again claiming the covering of the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ over them. I blessed the home in the name of Jesus Christ and put the home under the authority of God. I asked God to send His Holy angels into our home to protect us during waking and sleeping.  

    The night terrors ceased!

Parents, listen to your children. If they are fearful, do not dismiss their fears. They will learn that they can not trust you or count on you to protect them. It is a very lonely and frightening reality to feel alone and helpless. You don't understand that often the fear is so great that a child will actually fear for his very life. It is that frightening for some children on certain occasions.

I wonder how many people do not trust God because they learned that they could not trust their own parents to protect them. 

Whether people realize it or not, God's Divine design of the family unit is to be a body within the Body of Christ. This is part of "the mystery" that the Apostle Paul spoke of in his letter to the Ephesian church. (Ephesians 5: 22-33) 

The husband has the honorable position and responsibility as spiritual priest of the household with Jesus Christ as the head over him. The husband is the shepherd, not the tyrannical ruler of the household. He is to love, honor and cherish his wife as his equal. The wife has an equally honorable position, not greater than her husband and not less. Together they are to be one flesh under Christ. Together as one under the authority of Jesus Christ they are a very powerful spiritual stronghold against the enemy. 

There is much power in this spiritual Law of the husband/wife union. This is taught in the Bible, but I didn't learn this from the Bible. I learned this before I was a Christian, from when I served in the Luciferian spiritual hierarchy. Those who serve the evil supernatural hierarchy know far more about God's Laws than mankind knows. They know very well the power of God's Divine Law that governs the family unit with man as the spiritual head of the household. That is why there has been such an attack on the family. Satan does not want husbands and wives to know who they are in Jesus Christ and what spiritual power they have as one flesh. 

There is so much I could say about God's Divine plan for husband and wife as one flesh under God. I desperately want men and women to know their wonderful position together as one under God. I see a need to write an article on this topic or do an interview to share what I know about God's Plan, so that your life and that of your spouse and children will be greatly enriched and together you will walk in God's power. For now I will encourage my readers to strive to make the heart of Jesus Christ your heart. Follow Him. Ask God to help transform your soul and spirit to be more like that of Jesus Christ.
