Spiritual Warfare Forum: urgent, dream about my brother's "friend", help
urgent, dream about my brother's friend, help QUESTION from ed May 31, 2001 my youngest brother recently had a crisis for the first time, he had major depression with psychotic features after being under a lot of pressure. We are very close emotionally but were living in different states; I helped him through his crisis by talking to him about the immense love of the Lord during a six hour phone conversation until my parents flew over to the town were he was living and took him back home. I had a dream about him the day before my parents rescued him. We were on a patio with a fountain in the center, the fountain was decorated with angels with lion paws and these moved. My brother was about 5 or 6 years old in the dream. I was glad to see him in my dream but felt an evil presence around us. I asked him about his imaginary friend, and he said the name was something like saifax or zyphax. The name stuck in my mind because of the horrible sound it made and I woke up.
I know that usually evil spirits will be reluctant to give their name away because it will be used against them during a liberation session. That is why I was puzzled I got the name so easily. Have not had any recurrence of the dream.
Our father has assissted in exorcisms under the supervision of Catholic priests. My brother is already improving on medication but I have not discussed this dream with my father for fear of putting my brother through unnecessary rituals that could be traumatizing in his present state of recovery. I started to look for this name to see if it was a product of my imagination or a real name of an evil spirit that torments him. Please help me. thank you.
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on July 10, 2001 Dear Ed:
Most likely your dream is a product of your anxieties and worries about your brother.
But if you want to be on the safe side you can begin some spiritual warfare prayers like those we have in the Prayer Catalog linked at the top of the Index Page.
There should be no problem discussing this with your father. The Church does not do unnecessary ritutals.
