You are attracting these beings because of having a fear of darkness and having a fear of being possessed or restricted by beings in the lower astral world.
I'm sorry, I should have pointed out that these dreams were years ago.
The 2nd one happened 11 years ago. I have researched, consulted others and racked my brain looking for an answer. So while life is nothing like it was then, I am still so curious about it.
I liked your post because I do know of what you speak. And at that time I was cleansing myself of some bad emotions and even some people in my life. I was shifting into a lighter place, so to speak out of need. Once I began to grow and learn more about positivity and how to both bring it into my life and use it to protect myself, my whole life changed. I have never really feared that this would happen again.
