Child reoccurring nightmare
Any other suggestions? The dreams are so vivid. She is very detailed when she tells me about them.

Yowza. That is a terrifying thing to deal with. That poor girl. When my daughter was that age she had some really brutal reoccurring dreams where people were getting butchered in a blood bath. Back then I did not know that she or I were empaths so there wasn’t much I could do. And luckily the dreams never became anything other than a bad dream. But I do know things visit us in our sleep. And in just guessing maybe an entity is getting some kicks out of freaking your granddaughter out? In recent years I have had good luck with placing protection stones in my room and my kid’s rooms. It cuts down on weird stuff and some harassment we get at times while trying to sleep. Maybe try putting some black tourmaline or black obsidian near her bed or under her pillow? I would hope that would improve her sleep a bit.
I had a reoccurring dream for about 12 years in my youth. It was horrible. In the dream I was running through some sort of barren wasteland with some sort of howling monster chasing me. But it was like I was running in sand as I could not gain any distance. The monster seemed to be gaining on me by the second as I could hear its hot breath and hooves getting closer and closer. At the end of the dream the monster would always get within 20 feet of me and I knew I was toast and would be overrun and killed. At that distance I could clearly see that the monster was some sort of demonic beast with red glowing eyes. Luckily I would always wake up before I got hurt in the dream.
Back in those days nothing paranormal or weird really happened to me in my awake life. It was just an awful dream. If there was a message for me in that repeating dream, it is lost on me to this day. But my point is that kids have very vivid imaginations and it is part of growing up to experience those. I don't know how we can really know what parts of a child's dream is spiritual or paranormal, and which part is just a vivid imagination.
But I think you are doing the right thing by trying out some protections stones, cutting back on sugar and food before bed, and just trying to keep her environment calm so that bedtime isn't something she equates to fear. I seem to recall my daughter had a nightmare almost nightly between 4 and 6. And then it just stopped.
