I have a friend who woke up twice with three scratches. I've read forums about how they are demonic
Is there a reasonable explanation for these scratches or are demons after my friend and his family
That's one explanation and one I believe can be the answer in some cases. Yet the answer could also be that he scratched himself in his sleep. Believe it or not, you can do that and not even know you did until you wake up. I've done it myself.
I think YOU did it in your sleep as a retaliation for something he did to you. Just admit and you will feel better!
I would strongly recommend ruling out all other possible causes before considering the worst-possible scenarios. To assume demonic influence when none are there is often, according to demonic lore, taken as an invitation for demons to visit. So look at all rational, earthly possibilities first. In most cases, a person or their pet is the unintentional culprit. I once woke up to find bloody scratches on my thigh; but it was apparent (by the blood under my nails) I had accidentally done it to myself during sleep. Years later a very old cat of mine crawled on top of me for warmth and her balance was already compromised. So when she started to slip off she clawed at the covers to retain her balance. You may wish to suggest your friend trims his or her fingernails and those of his or her pets.
Sounds like an interesting plot for a novel...
Back to your question however...it is quite possible for him to do this to himself while he was asleep & not aware of it when he woke up.
If the scratches become more frequent & severe, then I would be worried

Okay, I didn't really want to say anything about this originally, but I do take notice of a lot of things. Lately, in forums, I've been noticing that most hub users either don't respond to my posts, or they don't...
