How to stop Nightmares with a simple spell for protection

Are you looking for how to get rid of nightmares? In this post, you’ll learn how to stop nightmares with a very simple protection spell which is very easy and effective.

You can perform it whenever you need it (I really hope you don’t need it very often, though).

What are Nightmares?

We all know that energy flows through the world and among all beings. It doesn’t matter in which dimension we are, energy can flow even between them. We also know that we connect ourselves with different kinds of energy depending on what we think or what we desire.

It is very important to keep a good connection with the Goddess so we can avoid some “bad energies”. However, sooner or later it is possible that we become a target for something unwanted. When this energy reaches our unconsciousness it can turn a dream into a nightmare.

Nightmares naturally happen to everyone during their entire life. They are usually related to feelings such as sadness, anxiety, fear, or woe, and they disturb the sleeping quality as well as productivity during the day.

Some nightmares can be prophetic dreams and we must face them. Against this kind of nightmare, the best we can do is to understand them and decipher them so that we can “get rid of them”.

However, other types of nightmares end up recurring and these begin to bother us. In case they keep occurring, even after understanding them and deciphering them, something is going to be wrong… It is against this kind of nightmare that we will make this protection spell!

Starry Night Van Gogh - Nightmares and metal illness
Van Gogh’s Starry Night, 1889. Some analysis suggest that this work depicts the artist’s hope in getting better from his mental illness. Even in the darkest nights, we can see the stars and the Moon shining. We can also see the light inside of each of us, represented by the houses.

Nightmares and the Meaning of Dreams

In many ancient cultures, such as the Egyptian and the Greek, for example, dreams were widely important and they used to be deeply analyzed.

Prophetic dreams can be sent from the Gods and they can have important information for our development or even for our protection.

We can also have lucid dreams in which we can live big and real experiences. If you are interested in this subject we recommend the book Dreaming the Divine by Scott Cunningham.

Dreams talk to us through symbols, so to understand them we have to decipher these symbols accordingly to our experiences and with our knowledge about the Goddesses and Gods’ archetypes.

Try not to get attached to “recipes” on how to decipher a dream. Symbols can have different meanings for different people.

To understand more about symbols and how to interpret dreams, we suggest the book Man and His Symbols by Carl Jung.

Spell to stop Nightmares

This spell to stop nightmares is very easy and it can be cast by anyone. You can cast it during any Moon Phase, just be sure it is not raining. I learned it on this website.

A very simple spell to stop nightmares

Total Time: 20 hours

Get the items

Get the white candle and the silver (or white) ribbon ready.

Prepare the environment

Sit down in a calm place during the night. Be sure you can perform this spell without interruptions.

Prepare the candle

Tie the ribbon to the candle, light the candle and put it in front of you.

Enjoy this moment

Enjoy this moment and enter a meditation state. Observe the fire and clean your mind.

Think about good experiences

Relax. Think about the places or situations that you like and that make you feel good. Bring only good memories to your mind!

Observe the sky

When you feel comfortable and happy, observe the sky.

Say the following verses

“The Moon is my friend, watching over me, 
bringing the beauty into my dreams. 
The stars are here, forever to shine, 
bringing serenity and peace of mind. 
When I close my eyes, they won’t be gone, 
keeping me safe until the dawn.” Nightmares: How to get rid of them with a simple spell

(Optional) You can sing the verses

Singing is not necessary, but it can help. Like a mantra, the repetition of words and rhymes raises energy, bringing more power to your wish. You can also exchange it for some music or rhyme that brings you good memories.

Untie the ribbon

When you finish, untie the ribbon and let the candle burn. Now tie the ribbon to your wrist and make a lace. Sleep with it and avoid the nightmares!

Let the candle burn in a safe place and go sleep

The spell is cast. The nightmares are gone. Sleep well.

Cast this spell again whenever you feel it is necessary.


Nightmares can be natural manifestations of our unconsciousness. However, they can have a darker origin which may be related to magick work against you.
