Intuitive Reiki Therapy with Cath Harrison

For a very long time, I struggled with sleep and fear of the dark. I suffered from sleep paralysis from time to time, it was often very disturbing and there were times, I was very afraid to turn off the light and go to sleep.

Sleep Paralysis occurs during a particular sleep cycle (REM) either just after going to sleep or on waking.  It can manifest in times of high stress and some people are more susceptible than others.

Sleep paralysis feels very real and you are conscious in your sleep but not able to move or scream. You can sometimes feel an energy pressing down on you or the presence of a dark energy tormenting you.

My take on Sleep paralysis and why it may manifest and what you can do about it…

Sometimes, when exposed to abuse at a young age or your parents separate, you might be missing the protector which would normally come in the form of your parents, mainly your father when you growing up and as a result, our own inner protector may not develop. 

When this part in us has not fully developed, you are sometimes exposed to harmful energies particularly when asleep. I was taught during these times to bring in a protector. A protector of the night, keeps harmful energies away whilst you sleep and can step in when you might be feeling frighten for any reason.

For me, it came in the form of a black panther, who brought with him a white tiger. When spirits of the night harassed me, I would call on the black panther to take care of me and to protect me from anything harmful.

The beautiful black panther came in when he was most needed. My black panther was great, he managed to chase away a spirit, which would hold me down from time to time and terrorise me in the early hours of the morning. I could not move or scream or do anything accept wait till it was over and it had been going on since I was a teen.

All I needed to do was to take my thoughts to the black panther and he was there in a flash!

It all felt very real and I could hear the spirit laughing and the footsteps as it was running from the black panther whilst the beautiful white tiger stayed with me as the panther dealt with the threat. I was never bothered by that tormenting spirit again. 

Since having a protector of the night in the energy realms, I have had no problems since and I call on them, if I feel protection is needed in any form. 

The protector will only stay as long as needed,  or until your own inner protector grows and develops to become your inner protectress or protector!

Maybe a protector of the night is something to consider bringing into your life for protection in the energy world. They are generally powerful beings and well worth it for a peaceful night sleep and in the development of self-protection!
