Signs You May Have Been Ritually Abused

Symptoms Of Ritual Abuse

Due to the high and frequent amount of drugs or programming that a victim may have been subjected to, the memories or flashbacks of ritual abuse may not occur until later in life. Victims will often start remembering in their 30s or 40s. In other instances, victims may have never lost their memories and some know that something has happened but can’t recall people, places or details. They just know something isn’t right.

Here are some symptoms of ritual abuse (You would need to have many of these symptoms to be considered a RA victim:

  • You can’t sleep at night
  • You have nightmares or night terrors of being attacked by entities or people
