Does anybody know the name of this demon?

I had a dream about a demon what demon has two heads, a wolf head with sabre fangs and a lion head with a mane made out of human arms that actually moved like arms. In my dream I was in a torture camp run by Catholic Priests where they tortured me and others for any connection to demons, going as far as trying us up & dragging us behind horses, pulling out our finger nails, and other really horrible things that are too gruesome to mention. In the dream the priests then put those who refused to repent in coffins and pushed the coffins into a liquid mud pool thing, I watched them push others into coffins and into mud before me. Before they got to me the boy next to me started screaming and begging for mercy before he started howling like a dog. They put a noose around his neck, strangled him to silence and pushed him into a coffin and into the mud pool like the rest, that’s when I saw this demon charge into the scene. In a voice that was an echoey and terrifying mix of a melodic voice and feral growling, I heard this demon demand their son and dive to save the boy in the coffin but when the demon emerged from the mud pool with the boy, he was dead. His body started to levitate over the camp as I watched this demon savagely kill every one of the priests. I woke up because my partner heard me sobbing in my sleep and he shook me awake.

I still can remember the dream so vividly. I can’t stop thinking about the dream, I really want to know what demon that was and what the dream could mean. Thankyou in advance for any clues or information!

I don’t know of any demons with both a wolf head and a lion’s head, but Marchosias has a wolf head while Buer has a lion’s.

To be fair this wouldn’t be the first time I’ve dreamed about a lion head with lots of limbs on its mane, when I was a kid I used to have dreams about a floating lizard n head with legs and arms writhing out of its mane all the time and it would scare the hell out of me. I never really gave it much thought as a kid besides it just being a nightmare but now maybe, maybe I should look more into Buer… If two demons were trying to contact me in the same dream and one of them was him then I definitely should pay attention now that I am an adult and actually active in my spiritual life.

Moved to divination and dreamwork with all the other posts of this “what does this mean in my dream” type of thing.

Given it’s a dream, and as you’ll see from most other times people as this type of question, I would first caveat that this may be nothing to do with external factors or spirits but more like something representative of somethin gin your life, an aspect of your own psyche or a message from your subconscious - which doesn’t speak language so it comes up with weird ways to try to tell you think, and usually mixes up stuff from all sorts of things into the dream.

A lot of this sounds like a take on basic mores of evangelical JCI religions. It doesn’t really say anything we didn’t know about them, so I’d look at the players in the scene, ask how they are related to you personally, do they represent parts of you or people you have known?

With the obvious things eliminated, if you still think it’s a sovereign spirit and not of your own making, the next step is to evoke it and ask it why it barged into your dream and what it wants. It didn’t really come across as an invitation to work with it though, more like an accidental eavesdropping on something interesting going on that you could access. Another thing to so I’ve talked about many times - get back into the dream in trance date, freeze it and walk about the scene interrogating it’s aspect, ask the characters who they are and what they mean to you, this supplies a lot of good info on whether you want to take it further. The Book by Robert Moss called Dreamgates helps walk you through how.

After that, the astral is a busy place and a lot you can sense there ends up having nothing to do with you - the more sensitive you are the more crap you can see - like birds singing in the trees, cool but not personal.

At the same time, random spirits are not supposed to be allowed to do this if you have full control of the energies of you life as a mage, especially if this is random noise form nearby activity. This is far from helpful or useful and you don’t know if that means next time you get dragged into or affected by unwanted energy that messes with you… so I would say check your wards and double up on them if they are good.

@RosieSweets Could be a Ugallu demon from sumerian demonology. They are described as having both wolf or lion heads. Its a protective demon that intervenes in someones life when there going through a difficult life threatening tribulation or situation.

@kiss-lamia-lilith Considering the day I woke up after I had that dream my fiance went into a diabetic coma, and he’s still in the hospital I’d say that I’m definitely going through a tough situation. I already work with a lot of Sumerian deities and demons and such so anything connected to that would make sense.

Thank you for the suggestion, I’ll definitely look into this. I can’t discount the possibility that it could literally just be my subconscious but I do have this intense feeling that it might have been an actual demon. I’m definitely going to check all of my wards and such, make sure everything’s good recharge things and whatnot.

The day after I woke up from the dream, my fiance and I were walking around a park and talking about the dream and he started to feel sick and then passed out, he is currently in the hospital for DKA(diabetic coma) and I’ve been unable to sleep since. Its been two days and I am getting more and more stressed. I know I need to center myself and work through this, but a lot of negative things happened at once. Maybe it’s all just a bunch of really bad coincidences at once.

@RosieSweets Perhaps look into leaving it an offering so it can help protect and aid in your husbands recovery. Along with one of the gods of healing. Signs to look out for is drastic changes in weather. It will be sunny then cloud over and storm. Usually a sign there around…

Well on the day it was sunny but then it started hailing and storming when he was in the ambulance, so I think I’ll ask if it was one of those

The demon in your dream with a wolf and lion head is not directly identifiable from known demonologies. The dream might symbolize internal conflicts or a struggle against perceived oppression. Consider exploring personal fears or traumas.

It might indeed be personal symbolism, as dreams usually are unless you have the natural ability or actively do certain dreamwork.

If it’s not, burying pagans alive in a bog does sound like something done by Charlemagnes or the Spanish inquisition and such. In that case it could well refer to some obscure pagan god or goddess.
