Self harm in my sleep?

I have been self harm free for the past couple weeks. However for the past couple nights I have woken up with injuries on my torso area. But not like I've accidentally harmed myself but actual long injuries that only could be made by an implement. At first I thought I was living with a demon until I realised that the injuries only appear if I was upset before I went to sleep. I'm really concerned about it and I don't know how to stop as I'm not aware of doing it when I'm sleeping. Any ideas of how I can stop?

Maybe you’re like sleepwalking I guess. Do you take any sort of sedative or drink alcohol before you go to bed? Like if you take a sleeping pill is it possible it’s making you like “black out”?

No I don't drink or do drugs or take any kind of medicine or anything. Just vitamin supplements when I wake up. I always just do some painting till I'm quite tired before sleeping.

Interesting, i think you need to rebuke this evil causing this. Put your hands on your head take them off and command the evil to leave. It could be a spiritual issue, seek spiritual help for treatment and understanding on the issue.
