DON’T SLEEP IN THE DARK – WHY YOU SHOULDN’T AND THE MEANING OF THE HOURS

The Meaning of Hours 12am, 3am, and 6am...

Story Highlights

  • Often times, when a practitioner, a spiritual practitioner, or a traditional practitioner, is sending off a negative work, this work will be done at night
  • In the realm of spirit, every hour represents a shift change
  • As we enter the dream world, it is our conscious spirit that goes off, leaving our physical body where ever it lies. The physical body is never alone, however...
  • But bear in mind that some attacks are allowed by your own guides, to connect.

The night has always been mysterious to many people. While the sun brings the day, which brings cheer and joy and liveliness, the moon seems to bring fear, sometimes terror. It does bring sleep and rest, which is good for the mind, soul and body, and there are many good things that come with it on a temporal and spiritual level. But one of the thing that the night brings, from a spiritual point of view, is a lot of spiritual activity. Much more than the day.

For unbeknownst to many of you, many gates are opened for many entities to walk our Earth and do their biddings while we slumber.

These beings are needed and they do have their place in our world, but this does not mean that we can not avoid some of the impact they may have upon our lives. Therefore, this post is important.

When a client of mine was told that she must not sleep in the dark, she was curious as to why. But when I began to explain to her, I remembered what one of my mentors, Mr. Mitchel, had told me when I was a teenager, when I, too, had asked him the same question.

He told me, “No human being on the face of this Earth should sleep in the dark. Angels (Mr. Mitchel was a Christian) pass through every household at night, so when the room is dark, the Angels will not enter. As opposed to having a nightlight that will facilitate their visit.” 

Many years after this, during a divination, I was warned not to sleep in the dark for 7 days. Prior to that warning, I had been having disturbing dreams, but I did not attribute the dreams to the darkness of my room. So again, when I was told this, although for 7 days, I asked the diviner why is this?

His response to me was: “So that you will not get bad messages through your dreams.

In other words, dark and malevolent beings lurk in the dark and are attracted to it. I could leave this explanation as is, but being who I am, I won’t. I will break it down for you even further.

Often times, when a practitioner, a spiritual practitioner, or a traditional practitioner, is sending off a negative work, this work will be done at night. There are different hours throughout the day that makes up 24, and night and day are split into two. Now, during the night, beginning from the hour of 12 and up until the sacred hour of 6, just before the sun begins to wake the world, countless of dark messages are sent out into the night.

(For those who are very literal: It does not matter the timezone, every place in the world will experience this).

But let us begin with the hour of 12 Midnight.

In the realm of spirit, every hour represents a shift change. When the two hands of the clock hit the hour of exactly 12AM, something significant happens (though I won’t reveal that here).

For the practitioner, however, the hour of 12 is an hour that a set of particular dark beings can be called and given work to go out and perform. This particular set of beings that work within this hour, within our physical world, have up to 3 hours (from 12 to 3) to complete their job before a new set of beings rolls in.

The Hour of 3:00AM

The new set that rolls in will be from 3am to 6am. But that hour of 3am is specific to these beings that are almost uncontrollable. For the Christian who reads this, please know that God has signed the contract for these dark beings to visit Earth. He has no problem with them. They all have their reason for being and were created by our same God.

Now, the 3:00AM beings all have names (which I will not provide) and this is one of the roughest hours of the night. For anyone that is under attack spiritually, or are being attacked spiritually, or just a normal person heading home with no one attacking him – anything can happen to him at this hour.

So let’s say for instance, you believe in Ghouls and Goblins, it is at this hour that they are let loose. I use Ghouls and Goblins for your better understanding, but these are not the names that I withhold.

For all those who believe that they are under attack or fear attack, this is the hour you should get up and pray.

The night brings with it good things as well as bad things. For when we sleep, we now enter different worlds and see aspects of ourselves in different ways. When the night comes, it is like a blanket that enfolds each human, and that blanket, during our sleep, turns into a flying carpet that takes us on journeys through our visions and dreams.

As we enter the dream world, it is our conscious spirit that goes off, leaving our physical body where ever it lies. The physical body is never alone, however, for during this journey we are always accompanied by our guides. There are still guides left behind to guard the physical body while the spirit is away.

Now, say for instance, Patience is on a little island in the Caribbean and she is a wicked spiritual practitioner, an obeah woman, but her target lives somewhere in Canada. And tonight is the night that she wants to send a bad spiritual blow to Joanne. Patience will wait until 12:00AM, depending on the spirit she wants to work with, or perhaps she’ll even wait until 3:00AM (if she’s strong enough to work with the energy of this hour). By this time, Patience hopes that Joanne is peacefully asleep because the attack she sends will connect better when the human form is at rest.

Now, you may wonder, but what about the guides left behind to protect Joanne’s physical body? If Joanne is asleep, her consciousness (or spirit) is out within the realms, though still attached to her body. In order to ensure that Joanne return’s to her physical body, her strongest guides must accompany her on this journey throughout the spiritual world, or else the spirit may not be able to return to the body. Left behind, however, are “lesser guides” who must watch and protect the physical.

But bear in mind that some attacks are allowed to connect by your own guides. Especially if these attacks will help guide you to the next phase of your life. Most often the next phase of a person’s life comes through something chaotic or problematic.

Most often the next phase of a person’s life comes through something chaotic or problematic.”

So Patience goes into her sacred room where everything has been prepared for Joanne. In the room, she would have dressed a certain way, in certain colors, and have certain preparations to send out as a spiritual and mystical message to Joanne who is now asleep. The messengers, the dark beings of these hours, will come and collect this message and deliver it to Joanne.

So now, Joanne, where ever she is, may dream that she has been given something to eat, or see that she has been bitten by a snake or has been shot by a gun, or in an accident, or something else disturbing. It is while she dreams this that the dark message is being administered to her body.

But there is a difference between a dream that connects and the dream that attempts.

The person who sleeps in complete darkness will see and even feel the snake bite them (this spiritual attack was successful), while the person who sleeps with light, even a nightlight, will see the snake attempt to attack them, but never does.

Now, the attempt does not mean that the spiritual work was unsuccessful (only through an oracle can you know this), but what it does mean is that the impact of the attack did not connect as it was intended. But such a dream should be checked spiritually anyway because there was still contact with the attack, albeit it much less severe.

What the light does in the room of which you sleep is entertain benevolent beings, such as your ancestors, spiritual family, angelic beings – all beings of light will pass through the space that has some type of illumination. A dark room, however, they will not enter.

The only set of beings that will enter a dark room to save you are your ancestors and spirit guides assigned to you. But other Light beings who walk the Earth day and night blessing human beings, will not enter a darkened a space. These Beings will only enter at the hour of 6am, when dawn is about to break, and the natural glimmer of light peaks through your window.

By this time, however, the damage of the night has already been done.

See Night and Day as forces of energy that assist us in our spiritual evolution. There are forces of energy that do not dwell in the same place together. The Night is strong and powerful and has its work to do for human beings, as it works along with the Moon. The Moon guides the Night in and illuminates its strength throughout all the atmosphere. The Night brings powerful messages with it, messages we need, and is a great part of our evolution and consciousness.

While the Day brings light, awareness, journey, and more. Both are powerful forces given to humanity as gifts by the Creator, and it all has to do with our growth. But as with everything, good and bad must exist. We simply must be wise in how to take care of ourselves.

Do not sleep in total darkness.

Thank you for this post! I started reading it just a couple minutes after 3 am and literally paused to pray.

Never considered this or heard of not sleeping in total darkness. I guess children really can teach us about life. 🙂

I greet you Obara with blessings !
Just a couple days before this post was made, I had been wondering about sleeping in the dark – can you believe it?!

Suh yuh know mi well frighten when mi si dis post.
Mi read and decide seh well dis a sign suh mi aguh stop sleep inna dis heap a darkness.
Mi love a candle and I have a lot so I decided to light one at nights when going to bed (*container candles so yes I’m safe).
Yuh si before dis, mi usetuh dream one an two time but yuh si since mi start sleep wid di candle light a bere vivid dream mi a get.

It is always pleasing when we are able to utilize the lessons you teach and see improvements in our lives.

Be steadfast and unmoveable as your work is not in vain.

I’m glad you posted this IB. Your reply triggered off a series of thoughts that made me realize something that I should have picked up immediately from this post as I too have had some rather vivid dreams and some too vivid to be dreams. I’ve lived in quite a few houses in my life time (sounds like I old but I not, lol!) but it is only in 2 houses that I have had such dreams and I realized that in both cases my room was at the front of both houses and it so happened that the street light is right by our gate so my room was always illuminated. Every other house my room was either at the back or somewhere in the middle. In many cases I can see the moon clearly from my room but never after 12am. I can see the planet Mars sometimes at various times after 12am from the side window in my room. I am somewhat creeped out as Mars is the war planet.

Thank you for this post. I used to have one particular dream every night about myself as a baby being thrown down a gully, a familiar place basically down a hill we use to walk to go up by our house on the hill, I was about 4-5 years old at the time, still haven’t forgotten the dream I don’t know who threw me down the hill but I always find myself going down the gully in mid air, I always wake up before my ass actually hit the ground, until one night I decided to actually fall in the dream I actually felt the fall in my actual body but after I fell I got up and walk away I remember I was in a red (burgundy) shimese as they call it in Ja and a nappy in the dream, and after that night I never have that dream again. I always look up to see who threw me down the gully but never actually see the person’s face. And to be honest my life has been one of such basically like a reject to most of my relatives.

Thank you Ma for the in-depth insight into day and night. Our elders have told us about these night-time hours, but it’s never been broken down clearly the way you have. Many many thanks for that.

It’s interesting, for as young as I can remember, I do not sleep in darkness. I can’t sleep at all if it’s dark. My eyes would be wide open. I need some ilumination and the brighter the light, the better. I always have the room lit up, at the very least a small lamp beside my bed will be kept on all night, including lights along the corridor and stairwell. As a child, I didn’t like going to the village during school holidays, because of the lack of light during the night.

Wow very enlightening as usual. Thank you Obara. Please I would like to ask, what is it about the light that negatively affects the malevolent beings and/or the negative work they carry? Is it the fact that light beings are present?
Secondly, supposing a person is wide awake during the time these malevolent beings are sent, will the negative work still be successful whether or not the person is in complete darkness?

Growing up my older sister and I would constantly have “the devil holding us down “ in our sleep at night. We would be awake but not able to move. I would constantly have the same nightmares about loosing my sister and parents. And it was when I was sleeping in the dark! Even now when I am in deep thought and praying and writing my thoughts down , I fall asleep with the light on and have the best sleep! As opposed to when my husband turns off the tv and it is pitch black and I wake up in the middle of the night! And my dreams tend to be negative! Thanks for the enlightenment!

Thank you OM for this post. I think God told you to do this post for me and my brother. I already passed the message in this post to my brother. One thing I know for sure through my many experiences is that spiritual works done to protect someone’s life and also for his or her success and progress are always destroyed by enemies at night(Gunshot, trick to eat something, force feed, lion attack, dog attack, duck attack, being chased by someone or faceless being holding cutlass etc.) The witches send messengers to operate, sometimes they send messengers that transform to bird and cat to observe and return back with information at night ( No disrespect to the Witches I respect you all).
But in Africa especially Nigeria, not everyone can afford to sleep with light on. It takes a lot for some people to even charge their devices or even afford to buy fuel or diesel, how can this people have light on in their bedroom from 12am till 6am.
It is even risky for some people to have a light on in their bedroom because in some places widows are left opened so air can come into the room at night, with light on it is so risky because some neighborhood aren’t secured.
I saw a comment here that you replied Obara ” I hear you Adetutu, but one day I will write why AFRICA is in darkness and the mystery surrounding Africa, Africans and their strong spiritual prowess that out match anywhere else in this planet, if i get the permission to reveal it, i will.”
I can’t wait to read why we AFRICANS IS IN DARKNESS AND THE MYSTERY SURROUNDING AFRICA. Though I know Africa has the strongest spiritual powers. Unbelievable things and great powers are here in Africa Soil. I’m proud to be an African. YES I AM.
Thank you Obara Meji for educating me. Great Post. Stay blessed. It feels Good to read a new article from this blog.

This is such a brilliant article and a eye opener. I remember when I was growing up in Jamaica, I must have been about 6 my brother was 4 and living the countryside, it was
a proper countryside without street lights and when electricity was not popular and we would collect water from a communal stan pipe. This was the most scariest time when night falls. You could guarantee that a scary entity lives in the out side toilet and I didn’t physically saw what it was when I thought I was brave enough one night when nature called, my brother accompanied me to the toilet I didn’t think that it was necessary to have a kerosene bottle torch for light, this was about 7.30 pm but it was pitched black. I was about to open the toilet door and suddenly BANG!, a massive force of wind gushed out. This was like a big raging bull and it made a very eerie sound like a long hollow howl and it disappeared in the darkness of the night. It all happened in a split second as I could recollect but me and my brother made a dash, racing back towards the house screaming out for my mom’s name. I think I was running so fast but it’s like I’m not moving like I was paralyzed. By the time we got indoors we couldn’t talk, we were in shocks. Mom rubbed us up with kalanga water.
From that night onwards I have never been keen on darkness. There’s is always a strong heavy feeling about darkness like some creatures are lurking, I always feel like something just moved.
It is good to know that just having a light on will encourage lighter spiritual presence.

When I was a teenager, I had always thought that a little light at night will keep away duppy. lol
Recently, I’ve been trying to sleep in the dark because I felt that it would open up my spiritual sight.
Now, I am happy that you’ve brought this to our attention!!!

I’m so behind on the last blogs. Thanks for this anyway I think I have a better understanding of some things. Sleeping at nights has always been a difficult thing for me. I rarely ever sleep throughout the night. There were points in my life where I was just moved to get up and turn on the lights in my room as I preferred to sleep in the dark but I never understood why. There were also times when no matter what time I’d fall asleep it wake up 3am on the dot or a few minutes before or after the hour. When I woke up at nights I could tell the time before even looking at my phone. These last few days again once been moved to have my bedroom have some light in it n I’ve been really following my spirit on that cus sometimes I’m sooo stubborn. I’m so happy I did after reading this. Funny enough, it was just tonight I said to myself gyal a when last u sleep without light ! I guess sometimes we are driven by our spirits to do things that we don’t even understand but there is a big meaning to it all!

I still find it hard to sleep at nights, I heard I was like that since I was a baby and growing up I can recall always being like this. I joke to myself all the time asking what am I keeping watch for. Thanks for this post teach ! I do hope all is well on your side, blessings and light to you and your fam.

Glad for this post Obara. I think it really answers a lot. I have an aunt that usually plugs a small lamp in before she goes to sleep and she will not go to sleep until the lamp is turned on. I used to always wonder why. Also, back in the day I noticed my father would not be able to sleep unless the tv or radio was on. Turn them off and he wakes up instantly.

When I sleep at nights I usually find it difficult to sleep when the lights are on. I must state that I rarely sleep in the night but have no problem falling asleep in the day with the sun shining full force. However, I usually force myself to sleep at nights during the summer because it gets so hot in the days.

I was more aware of the nightly hours from reading this blog as well as other sources online, especially regarding the infamous 3am hour. I do recall when I was young people used to tell me never go outside at 12am because duppy usually out at that time.

After reading this I shall invest in a few small lamps now or just light a candle on those nights I will be awake. I honestly had no idea the light was so integral at nights on a spiritual level.

Thanks for the excellent post Obara.

Great post, O! Thankfully I have heeded your warnings and find myself more at peace during the nightly hours but it still freaks me out when I leave a light on at night then wake up in the morning and the light is out.

Hello Obara,
Honestly this post has really opened my eyes. I never liked sleeping in the dark even as a child growing up. I remember one night I was sleeping and I was wearing a red and black t-shirt. I’n the midst of my sleep I felt someone pulled me up by the hand and I found myself sitting up in the bed looking around.
When I realized what happens I was scared out of my mind. The thoughts that were running through my head was endless and Up to this very day I think of that night and it’s something that I will never forget.
So I’m happy you posted this message to us all and believe up to today I don’t sleep in the dark.

Many thanks for your words of wisdom.

Greetings Folks!
My mother would always tell me not to sleep in darkness and when my daughter was born every time that we spoke on the phone she would warn me not to make her sleep in the darkness. As usual no explanation is given but like most people who had elders in their life who had knowledge it was not passed down to her she just followed her grandmother ordered of no darkness.
3am. I know has powers- I use to wake up 3am every night for many years and even when I am wake now I always unconsciously know when its 3am. There is always a different scent in the air and a stillness I can’t explain.

Thank you Obara for the above educative and informative piece – you’re appreciated. After reading, I had to hear your soothing recording voice – its calming. I must admit, I actually prefer to sleep in a pitch black room. OMG! anyhow I live on the 7th flr without window blinds but just white lace curtains – I still have the reflections of light from various sources pierce through but I always wondered if mystical beings were watching me hence the thought of having blinds to black out any observers. Thanks for this piece, I need to get some form of illumination in my room. What’s your thoughts on subtle music playing on resonance of 432hz and incense burning prior to bed times at night fall. Greetings from London, GB.

Thanks for this post teach. As of lately my dreams are being blocked. Strange things have been happening in my house around these hours. Sharing my story.
3 mths ago my boyfriend called me after 3am in a pannick telling me about his dream. I woke up and listened carefully to every details of it. We stayed on the phone until 6am when we had to get ready for work. Last night he tells me “I’m going to a far away country to work, yup! Sooo….”(Ps: teach thanks to you and olaydeo for teaching me how to interpret dreams. As the news he gave me last night was the interpretation of 2 paths and he took that one) Last month to now, almost every, if not every night, every week after 3am I am always being awoken around this time. The living room which is centre to all the bedrooms has the night light plug in. Most of the times when this happens I would start saying a prayer but majority of the times it’s like a block, distraction or fight for me to pray. If I draw for my phone to read a biblical verse it mysteriously has no connections. Most times I tightly close my eyes and barely open my lips and whisper a few words. Then I feel a sense of calmness and like someone patting me back to bed like putting a baby to sleep.

My father religiously becomes awake anytime after 12am insisting he’s unable to sleep. Honestly he really doesn’t go back to sleep but either turns on the radio loud for the household to wake up or he comes out into the living room just sitting there in the little light telling mostly my bro who’s up “I can’t sleep. You too?”

My bro now around 1:45am-4am in his room he would see beings very strange creatures. Anytime this happens he doesn’t sleep until the sun comes up. My mom now would be having nightmares anytime after 12am and waking up as if she got hurt or any of her loved ones got hurt.
