Over the years I have worked with a lot of people who have had difficulty sleeping. Long term sleep deprivation is a brutal problem which complicates every other aspect of the healing journey.
I have coached people on building a toolkit with a wide variety of tools, since different things work differently for different people. It is an art form to sleep well, not a simple one-size-fits-all formula.
Against this backdrop, “Sally” has been struggling for about ten years with a wide variety of dynamics. She has vigorously implemented my ideas, scoured the web for everyone else’s ideas and had some wonderful successes along the way, but has never solved the problem.
One of the intransigent sore spots for years has been getting to bed at night. She misses glaringly obvious on-ramps to sleep and pays the price for the next 24 hours, because she can’t bring herself to go to bed. But when she does go to bed, she has been known to lie there for hours, unable to sleep, while desperately needing to sleep.
She spent some time with her counselor rounding up a handful of parts who did not like night time for a bunch of valid reasons. And she had her deliverance partner scour her whole body looking for Leviathan, and finding/evicting some. She changed beds, bedrooms and did every sort of land cleansing she could think of.
At the end of the months of focused, excellent work, there was no change. She pinged me and I agreed to give it a shot, and we got on the phone.
When I asked God to show me what He wanted me to see, the immediate picture was of a four poster bed and a demon in the post by her left shoulder.
I queried her and she had no four poster bed now or that she could remember in childhood.
I queried the demon and he admitted that the bed was from someone else’s house where Sally slept briefly as a child.
The short version was, the demon created this “virtual reality” bed which has followed her around for decades, since childhood.
For starters, we give high honor to Sally’s spirit. It had very good reasons for not wanting to go to bed at night!
We dispatched the demon who admitted his job was to mess with her sleep. We asked God to destroy the bed and to disconnect the device in Sally that the demon was using.
This is a new idea to me. I am not quite sure what the whole dynamic is. I am guessing that the “virtual reality bed” was designed to be exempt from the house cleansing work Sally did. In the future, we will amend our land cleansing prayers to extend to all realities, not only ours, but all spiritual realities and dimensions and structures. See if that works better.
Anyway, I am tossing this very new manna out there, in case it helps someone else on their journey.
