I think the significance of your dream depends on what the devil symbolizes for you. It could be temptation, guilt, or just fear.

Possible Interpretations of a Dream About The Devil
  • If you're religious, a dream about the devil might represent your fear of sinning or going to Hell.
  • Even if you don't believe in God, you'll know that the devil is associated with sin. Have you done anything that you regret recently, or is something morally troubling you? A dream about the devil doesn't have to be religious.
  • Scientists believe that we process the events of the previous day whilst we're dreaming, and that the dream itself helps us to remember and deal with anything that might have happened - this is why we sometimes wake up with the solution to a problem that we couldn't solve the day before. With this in mind, your dream could just be the result of hearing someone talk about the devil, or watching a movie or TV show in which he features.

I have had such dreams often. It could mean you are under attack by demonic forces, or it could be a warning. Pray to understand the meaning.

I dream of the devil from time to time. I don't believe it means anything. It is just fear coming up in a dream. In my dreams there is an extra cavern in the basement which extends down and opens up to his realm.
