Devil Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Devil Dream Symbol – The Devil is a sign of your own negative moral judgment. It is important to understand that the Devil is not an evil sign, but rather your own subconscious struggling against nonsequitur moral judgments against yourself or others. Evaluating the logical reasons behind your judgment of certain actions or decisions instead of taking things by faith or for granted is very important in order for you to move past the problems that the devil represents in your dreams.

We often get caught up in making cursory judgments of others based solely on habit or moral and ethical constructs that are impractical or illogical. The devil is a symbolic prompt to rid yourself of unfair and deprecatory judgments against yourself and others. It is trying to help you free yourself from inhibitions that have held you back for a long time and make a positive change with a new outlook on life.

Additional Meanings

Dreaming of an angry devil can warn there is trouble brewing. Can you feel trouble around you? A smiling devil in a dream can mean you have luck on your side. A devil accompanied by others can be a sign that you will have problems in a romantic relationship sometime in the future.

A devil wearing dark clothes and sporting huge fangs means there are many challenges and obstacles in your waking life. You may need to ask for help to find the solutions. Marrying the devil may refer to how you feel about not being able to talk to someone you love. This is something you need to face. Being in a strange place with the devil can warn there is an illness on the way. This may be a good time for a visit to your doctor.

Dreams of the devil can warn of dangers soon to cross your path, especially from those you trust among family and friends. You need to be careful about who you trust. Seeing a devil watching you from the shadows can mean that someone close to you wants to do you harm. This could be a good time to hold your counsel close to you. A devil in your room warns to think twice about accepting new people as friends. You may want to get to know them better before giving them your trust. Encountering an ugly devil in the shadows warns there is danger around you. It is a time to be extra careful.

    I had a dream … I was in my school grounds with a class where I was texting a guy and confessing him till I got out to look for him but went back into the class room as I couldn’t find him. When I did, it wasn’t like the pre-usual room, it was cold and blue. I was confused because I saw no one, but I sat down as my phone rang but a voice mustered out by me. “Don’t believe it’s real, it’s not.” I had passed out within my dream and woke up tied up in a red hot room, where I spotted the devil that looked like the typical devil, there was also another person/thing behind me but that one was cutting my hair… I wasn’t scared but it was confusing as I felt a bog impact, I woke up from the dream within the dream. In 3rd person, I had red eyes when I woke up. I wasn’t tied up any longer and ran out of empty classroom where the lights were all over to half the building but I spotted the guy… Needless to say, I rushed out to be only surprise, the other half was lighted up. Again, in 3rd person, the devil and the person/thing that was with him chanted. “Third try is the charm.”

  5. I had a dream about the devil. it started off with me going down the stairs of an unknown basement, I didn’t go all the way in but before I could turn the lights on, a whisper in my left ear.” you poor thing’ it said. I looked to my left while I was still clutching on the basement stair handle….. and there he was, hanging on the side of the wall next to me and. he had a goat-like feature, brown fury coat, large huffs, left yellow eye like a snake and right blue eye like a human. as he turned his head to me. I was so shocked, I said all the words in my head to rebuke him, but the words wouldn’t come out. he didn’t try to harm me /touch me in any way tho. and I woke I was not as frightening as I thought I would, but I did find myself breathing really fast as I pulled back to reality out of my dream. what would be the meaning of this dream?

  6. I had a dream. My brother had just got out of jail and for some strange reason I felt very uncomfortable in his presence, like I sensed evil in him. As the day progressed, in my dream, I could not stand next to him without being more than a feet apart. He would smile at me with a weird evil smile/smirk. At one point in my dream he asked me why I hadn’t hugged him all day. Which is when he went in to hug me and as soon as he hugged me I saw the devil and woke up.

  7. I had a dream i was helping someone move. I dont know who that person was. He was n shadow form when i askes him to leave he left but not before turning around to smile at me whilst he was leaving he was also all black as he was shadow of sum sort can someone help me figure out what it mean
