A Powerful Prayer to Keep Nightmares Away [5 Min Chant]

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

So often we struggle to find peace in our sleep and when nightmares show up, well, it’s even more difficult to relax and find your way back into a deep sleep. I know how boring and stressful all this can be as, especially when having a stressful daily routine, at least at night we would like to press the pause button and truly relax.

Nightmares can occur for many reasons, but did you know that there is a way to keep them away with only the power of your commitment and of your voice to make it happen?


A powerful prayer to keep nightmares away is an ancient and effective practice in witchcraft that can bring peace and protection during sleep.

This prayer works by harnessing the energy of intention, focusing on banishing negative energy, and invoking spiritual guidance for a peaceful night’s rest.

It is best performed before bedtime, aligning with the quiet and stillness of the night, enhancing its potency.

Preparing for the prayer involves lighting a white candle, cleansing your energy and space, establishing a calming nighttime routine, and creating protective sigils or using amulets.

What is a prayer to keep nightmares away?

It is a prayer you do to relax, to unwind, and to spread some positivity around you so you can keep nightmares away while having a long, deep, rejuvenating sleep.

How does it work?

It works as a protective shield from nightmares. It prevents you from having them as it protects you and relaxes your body and soul.

When should you do it?

You can pray it away every night. This is a great way to create a special, useful, and effective bedtime routine to keep your nightmares away long term. If you don’t want to do it right before bed and doing it on a daily basis is not doable for you, you can do it on the night of a full moon as the full moon energy is all about letting go, getting rid of what no longer serves you, and making room from positive energy while banishing negativity from your life and your soul.

If you want to do this on some specific day of the week, you can pray on a Tuesday or on a Saturday.

Do it on a Tuesday if you think your nightmares are related to some negative practice like the evil eye, a black magic attack, or other similar reasons.

A sigil for protection can be a wonderful tool to use while saying your prayer to keep nightmares away by keeping it between your hands or putting it on your side table or behind your pillow. Consider it as an amulet. It can work wonders.

Use an amulet

If you have an amulet special to you, use it to create a protective shield while sending positive vibes your way. It can be anything from a magical tool like a rune to a necklace someone dear to you gave you as a gift. You know what’s best for you.

Prayer to keep nightmares away

“May nightmares stay away from me…
I am positive… I am calm… I am stronger than negativity…
My light is brighter than this darkness coming overnight…
May I not feel scared or stressed… May I be ready to relax completely…
To unwind mind, body, and soul…
May my light be so enhanced I can create a protective shield of light…
I am protected… I am safe… I am ready to surrender to sleep from a place of harmony, joy, and relaxation..
Those nightmares are in the past… they are distant from me… they are so far away I start forgetting about them…
The details… the events… the feelings…
A positive feeling takes over and makes some room for beautiful, relaxing, and promising dreams…
I am ready to sleep…
So be it.”

What should you do after prayer?

You should repeat the prayer at least three times in a row. You can do it once or, if you need to, you can say this prayer every night right before going to bed or every time you feel your body needs it, even right before a daily nap you take, for example, on your lunch break or at any time as per your lifestyle and your daily schedule.

You can use the same candle and the same tools or you can use brand new ones. If you think your nightmares are related to the evil eye, voodoo, or black magic, cleanse yourself and your space more often than usual.
