Nightmare Spiritual Attacks
Navigating Spiritual Attacks
To be honest, writing this week’s newsletter felt a bit challenging. I’m feeling simultaneously overwhelmed and underwhelmed in life.
- I’m constantly on the move
(NYC to NJ multiple times a month),
- I’ve been working basically every day
- I have been having a lot of very weird dreams.
- Everything in my life is still the same and idk what to do about it.
- I wish I had a clear understanding of what to do next.
- But so far the only thing I feel led to do is ‘Be Still” and not make any rash decisions.
I promised myself I would stay consistent with these newsletters.
And when I made that promise I factored in the possibility that sometimes I might be too busy, tired, or overwhelmed to write something I feel truly proud of.
This might be one of those times.
It’s okay to need to take a second to gather one’s thoughts.
I mentioned quickly above that I’ve been having a lot of weird dreams. I feel these dreams might be playing a role in why I feel the way I do. But I also feel at peace in this “tiredness” because I have been leaning on God even more as I navigate these strange emotions and experiences. While contemplating this, I was reminded of a Bible verse…
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
~ Ephesians 6:12 ~
In all honesty, the dreams truly feel like spiritual attacks, something I never truly understood in the past, but now I’m starting to comprehend with more clarity firsthand.
What is a spiritual attack?
My personal understanding of a spiritual attack is something that wants you to believe you are powerless against the negative energies or experiences you might have in your life. The best way to overcome them is to see them for what they truly are. I do this by turning to God for wisdom, clarity, and peace of mind.
Although I’m annoyed by the dreams, I also feel very much at peace and unbothered. I believe these attacks are trying to challenge the strong foundation I have set out to build in my life. Also, they are causing me to become clear on what my values are and if I am truly ready to fully walk the walk.
There are many things the world says we should do to feel truly “free” that I have decided to walk away from. The moment I made this choice in my heart and began to take action by following through on it in my life, the nightmares began. It has been almost every night for the last 2 weeks. It is a long story, so I might record a YouTube video talking about it more in-depth soon.
But all in all, I still sleep like a baby every night despite the nightmares!
Eventually, they’ll realize they’re wasting their time and energy on me because I trust and choose my Creator.
ANYWAY! Despite all that, I do have many things I have been working on. Check out the ETIW YouTube channel for other videos I’ve made. Many of them are shot with me in gardens or parks. Come spend virtual time with me in those idyllic locations as I talk about my walk with God.
And check out the ETIW.com website. There are wellness and faith-based resources there! I recently installed a “Movie Room” 😉 Where I will be showcasing ETIW short films I have not yet officially released to the public.
I would like to sincerely thank you!
I appreciate you reading this newsletter, and choosing to support me by following me on my journey.
