ATTACK of the DEMONS - Sleep Paralysis Throughout Cultures

Surprisingly, though, is the consistency of such reports made by societies and cultures with no previous knowledge of each other or their lore. The main details remain constant.

A man or woman is attacked during the night, usually lying on their back, when an evil entity sits upon their body, causes paralysis, and even sometimes chokes or smothers it's victim. Though their motivation may differ, (possession, revenge, or just wanting to upset the living) the attack remains strikingly similar.

And these stories are not limited to Western cultures, in fact, quite the contrary. In Thailand people refer to being Phi um (ghost covered) and phi kau (ghost possessed), and these experiences include a feeling of pressure, paralysis, and something black covering the body. In Japan, kanashibara ("to tie with an iron rope") is a common known and accepted experience. In the Far North one speaks of agumangia (Inupik) or ukomiarik (Yupik) in which "a soul" tries to take possession of the paralyzed victim. In Laos, da chor is described as follows: "You want to listen, you can't hear; you want to speak, you are dumb; you want to call out, you cannot; you feel you are dying, dying; you want to run away. You piss with fear in your sleep"

Search "AIMLESS" (MOVIE) on Facebook to find out the truth on sleep paralysis.
Update: Instead, go to http://www.themovieaimless.com or visit this other page on this site for more info.



Kevin: Thanks for drawing attention to the relevance of sleep paralysis and hypnagogic hallucinations throughout cultures, time, and location. It's an entirely fascinating subject, whether the consistency of such events can be explained by evil forces or simply physiological and biological similarities (what can happen to one human in Japan can happen to another human in Thailand). Your second paragraph seems to suggest the former explanation, while I suggest the latter throughout this site (in particular, here).

I attempted to find Aimless on Facebook, but a few targeted searches brought no results about a movie or sleep paralysis. Is the Page still up there?

Warmly,
Kevin

Demonic Forces
by: Laura

well i often have these sleep paralysis attacks, and definately it feel like demons..... i am a very spiritual person and these attackes normally happened in deep states of meditation or when i am going through some transition!

the it feel like something dark over me, and even if i try to open my eyes, or turn around to look at whatever is there it does not let me do so, like it does not want confrontation or or by me waking up it will loose it powers!

Anyway , what my main point here about these attacks, be they spiritual or science that i find most affacinating, is that the minute I say,
In the name of the Father the Son and Holy Spirit, or Our Father who Art in Heaven, or Bismillah ir rahmanir Rahim or Auudhu Bilahi Minash Shaitaan ar Rajeem, these feelling of paralysis disappear and i begin to wake up!!!!
or the Evil entities go away...which is it...science or Spirit!!!!

about demon attacks
by: Anonymous

Do not be focused on the forces of evil but be focused on Christ and His promises, his grace, and the forgiveness of sins that is found in Him. The emphasis should be on Christ not on the devil. The devil is more powerful than man. But Christ is more powerful than the devil. Be simple unto that which is evil and wise unto that which is good. Keep a pure mind, renew a pure mind, read the Bible and remember the great things God has done and His promises. The grace of Christ through His shed blood on the cross if you repent of your sins and trust in him is the victory which overcometh this world.
God does not speak to man in an audible voice. The angels of God do not reveal themselves unto men in a visible fashion. Any spiritual beings that reveal themselves to you are not angels of light but fallen angels. The devil can transform himself into an angel of light. The devil roams about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. He is the father of lies, the temper, the deceiver; he was a murderer from the beginning. Jesus said in John 10:10-11, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” If the forces of evil reveal themselves to you it is only for the purpose of attempting to get you to sin. If you are not saved they will try to keep you from trusting Christ. If you are saved they will attempt to entice you to sin so that they can then attempt to make you think that you either are not saved or that you have been delivered over to the devil because of being an unrepentant Christian.
Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ and not of works. The evil forces of this world do not have the power over your flesh unless you willing give yourself over to them. There is human technology that can be used by evil man in cooperation with evil forces to make you think that the evil forces have power over you when it is really physical technology used to manipulate your mind and body and physical emotions. Please read carefully these words of scripture and make sure that you have turned from your sins to Jesus Christ as your Savior.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 says, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand." We live in the last days. This means that the time is drawing nigh for the Rapture when Jesus Christ who died on the cross 2000 years ago for the sins of the world and rose again the 3rd day will gather his believers from off the earth. This also means that the time is drawing nigh when the anti-christ shall appear.

Attacks
by: Jewl

I get these attacks as well since I was a little grl. Don't happen as often anymore. I've had dreams that felt like I was being dragged off my bed on top of a blanket. Also being scratched by a cat trying to scream for help. Many dreams of waking up from it but then it just happens over and over again. I do have a relationship with god and I pray every night . In these dreams I pray myself out over and over and I wake up still praying. It's a very scary feeling and I hope one day it will all end

Believer Of God and Good
by: Anonymous

I have suffered from these attacks since I was a little girl. My grandmother always said I had a special gift . It never felt like a gift. I would try to scream or move an arm or a finger. I could see and hear everything. I saw ghosts. Actual figures but mostly eyes looking at me. Nothing ever touched me as a child. I would pray for gOd to protect me. I got to where I could make noise without being able to open my mouth. When I was able to scream I would. My family thought i was crazy until things began to show them selves to them. As I got older and married, it changed. Not as often and different. I had beaome more able to make noise in my throat. My husband knew to help me when he heard me. He would just have to touch me in most cases . My mother also did the same. I could hear her from other rooms. She called it night terrors. BUt it isn't the same as night terrors. My sisters and recently found out a brother also does this.
Recently , This happened one day during a nap after church. I tried to move and couldn't. I looked at my husband and an old woman , wild looking, stood at the side of the bed smiling at me. I knew she was a demon. I prayed in my mind for strength and I started trying to make vocal sounds. I began to say as well as I could, "I rebuke you in Jesus name! " At first the sound was barely there but it got easier ,and I made the noise louder. Finally my husband heard me. He was shaking me and looking in to my eyes but I couldn't come out of it. He was getting afraid because I could not get out of it. HE knew I was looking at something . FInally I got sounds out and then was able to come out of it. AS soon as I came out my husband said he could tell I was rebuking something.
I too have felt like someone was pulling on my pajamas pulling me out of the bed. I always call on GOd. My grandson who is 11 has heard my making sounds for help many times. Last week I had this happen and was trying to move but could not . I was trying to speak and could not. My husband heard me trying to make noise and tried to get me out of it. It wasn't working. He shook me , gently slapped me over and over but finally was getting afraid for me and grabbed my shoulders and shook me hard and then slapped me hard. HE said he saw the terror in my eyes but I could not blink. He told me he was afraid I was going to have a stroke this time. AS was I.
My daughter is addicted to drugs and been away from GOd for a while. We were trying to help her get off drugs. She experienced this often. Only her attacks always included dark shadows and something trying to smother her. She described shadows laying on top of her. I told her to rebuke them in Jesus name when it happend. She was terrified many times.

It is Spiritual
by: #SleepParalysis

Sleep paralysis has alot to do with your religious belief and your subconscious mind. Find out what is eating you inside.. it may be a sin... it may be someone you need to forgive.. you have to be your own psychologist and analyze your fears and worries and hidden desires. The terrifying experience is a hint of what is going on underlying in your life.. and it projects out during sleep when your subconscious mind has more control!!!

Hope in The Lord Jesus Christ crushes satin!
by: Anonymous

Very interesting that they given this a name "sleep paralysis I'm a Christian and I was working through some fears & strongholds in my life. The heavy loads we carry from the trauma in our lives from past failures, worries, guilt and shame. I asked the Lord to help me face my fears, so I could move forward to be his servant for his kingdom her on earth and in heaven. For a year, I would say about four episodes,I had the experience of being held down with a force that was not just physical thing, it was an intense feeling of an evil force and presence. I prayed for the Lord Jesus Christ to help,me knowing that "his spoken name" would rescue me. Calling the name of The Lord. . . It was very real" that was several,years ago when my business was in trouble.. I began to quote scripture before I went off to sleep. " I know the plans you plan for me says The Lord, plans to prosper me and to give me a hope for the future" (in Jeremiah). The more I allowed our precious Lord to love me and comfort me I have not had those experiences of fear and trembling. The results are that I am totally in hopelessly in love with the Savior who saves his children, yes we have a hope for the future, in the Lord Jesus Christ Amen. . . so be it

JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY
by: Jenny Lynn

Only the Lord Jesus Christ will rid you of these demonic attacks. Jesus himself wrestled with Satan on Earth and he gave all believers in Jesus Christ the power to cast out demons in Jesus' Name. The unbelievers do not have this power and will only make the demonic attacks worse by using Christian methods to get rid of demons. No paranormal investigators or scientists has ever got rid of a demon, only the Christian church can do this. Unbelievers should stay away from hypnosis, psychics, tarot, quiji, seances, and all dark arts, this will not eliminate the attacks, but make them worse. I am a Lutheran Seminary graduate and have a MA in Theology and I am just a few credits short of receiving my MDiv. I am quite knowledgeable on the occult, demonology, and Christianity. Please e-mail me if you need prayer to rid yourself of the demons. JenniferJeremy@aol

Demons lie
by: Daphine

It's ironic that I came across this post today. After having my eyes open up at church it seems like this is happening to me a lot. Last night though I was asleep when it happen. I saw wrapped twisted faces as they tried to drag me under in broad daylight. I felt things that I shouldn't of felt and when I woke up. I couldn't move anything but my jaw. I couldn't speak though I could move my jaw it felt broken. I kept screaming in my mine. "I rebuke you with the blood of Jesus." No amount of Scientology will make me believe that it wasn't a demon. It finally went away but I still felt like something has been watching me in my room since. Our newborn sleeps in the room with us and I couldn't help but bolt up to check on him.

ATTACK of the DEMONS
by: Anonymous in Kansas

It’s been almost 25 years since I have had this experience, but I will never forget those times. They began in Germany around 1987-88, though my exposure to them began long before because my mother played around with the same things when I was a child. I was stationed in Baumholder Germany and lived in old World War II army barracks that were full of old demon spirits. This was a time in my life when I claimed to be a Christian, but I did not have the actions/"works" to back it up. Faith without works is dead. Even the demons believe in God and tremble.
I was drinking and partying every weekend if not more often, and engaged in (a lot) of what the bible calls sexual immorality; and I was even using Ouija occult "games" with friends. I’ve seen occult activity with my own eyes.
When I would sleep here, many times I would become aware of dark spirits on top of me and around me trying to crush the air out of my chest, crush my head and smother me. A strange sound was always present like a ringing, or humming of some kind. I was paralyzed and could not speak of move except for my feet. I learned that I was able to kick with them so I began to make sure my feet were in contact with the foot board of my bed before I would sleep so that I could kick the board and wake myself. Yes, I was that conscious of what was happening. I have had them try to drag me off the bed before also.
I have never been so aware in an unconscious state before, it was more like an "experience" than a dream. When I told people about the experience, many would not believe me; I have heard of many accounts such as those on this site, and they are all similar. Some demon attacks are perpetrated by an Incubus or Succubus which are– Sex Demons. I never had this happen, but have heard of it. After I began to rebuke the demons in the name of Jesus "yes this is also common in these stories" the attackers seemed to back off. Once I became what I would describe as (born again) in the spirit of Christ, and began to live what I professed the attacks stopped, and never bothered me again. It has been almost 25 years since I’ve been attacked. Praise Jesus!

I love sleeping on my back-the journeys the nightmares
by: Mariona Vasquez

I have so much to tell. I'm an indigo child/adult. I'm trying to help a friend with extreme sleep paralysis. I don't like the name sleep paralysis. It doesn't quite hold the urgency or truth of what dwells in our mind. Sharing a strangers soul and determination to chose you for whatever reason they do. People don't make up demons. Where there's good there is evil.

Attacked
by: Minister L

As I slept in my lazy-boy while watching College Football I was attacked. I tried to call out as my head was being forced down to my chest. I started pounding my foot on the floor to get my wife's attention to break the attack. She never came out and i knew i was going to die by this thing, so I just started repeating Jesus over and over and every time I said the name Jesus there was relief until I was able to come awake fully. I went into the room where my wife was in bed and I told her what happened. I asked her did she believe me and she said yes I do. She then got up and went to the kitchen to and took a tablespoon of a fat-burner diet liquid. she returned to bed and with in minutes she stated she was not feeling right. She sat at the foot of the bed then fainted, I picked her up placing her on the bed and she was turning light green, her face contorted to the point of unrecognizable. She stopped breathing I called for an ambulance she was seen at the ER and was told it was Anaphylatic Shock. She not allergic to any thing. So this evil spirit attacked her too.

Jesus is the answer
by: Sam

People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy. Repent and confess ur to Jesus,But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. Demons has no control over u
solution : Repent and receive Mercy

my experience NEW
by: Anonymous

I recently came across this page and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with these encounters since I just just woke up from it now but my story has a twist and I need advice seriously. Like most I've had these encounters so many times I can't count but I will bring up a few times where it has been alot different from the last and maybe someone can help me piece together the pieces. I've always had a gift but I really don't feel like it is and even prayed and begged god to tell me why I see the things I see only mostly in what I thought was just dreams but recently found out there really not. When I was younger and after my granny passes away I began to have alot of hate inside mixed with alot of other feelings from my past I remember telling god I hated him for putting me in a family and a situation I didn't understand and that is when the encounters began over the years I didn't know what to do scared to sleep and I remember this one particular Sunday I don't know how to explain it I had a voice deep down in my soul tell to get up now and go to church I ignored thinking I was just sleepy and layer down about 5 mins later I couldn't breathe and I heard the voice say now it was something about it that didn't scare me like the encounters but more as a parent as shaken as I was I got up after years of not going to church and went as I sat in the church angry with arms folded wondering why I was getting madder just sitting there I sat through and went home. Fast forward I'm in college in my first year of college I went through an extreme battle of going through hard times until I broke I couldn't take it I had no one and decided to talk to God and began to go to church faithfully so I noticed yes I sinned but I kept getting up and going and starting over until it became easier and easier for me to go to church without having anger in heart and then I gave my life to god I apologized for everything and repented a few weeks later I had an intense dream and this is when I realized they wasn't just imagination because other around heard me as I slept I remember sleeping and I had a strong sensation someone was staring at me I opened my eyes and above me stood this man who was completely black and his figure seemed blurry I remember that in all my encounters I have never seen anyone until now this man looked down at me and I felt extreme fear and hate coming from him I was frozen and breathing so hard my mom later told me she was screaming for me to wake up cause my eyes were wide open and I was shaken he looked down at me and my head slowly turned to the cross that was on my wall as though he wanted me to see and then i remember just saying god if you can hear please help me cause I felt as though he wanted me dead all of a sudden my hears popped and everything became peaceful I remember floating and all of a sudden I was sitting around this fire with a man sitting by me his voice was strong that when he spoke I felt like my soul shook but I wasn't scared because this was the same voice I heard years b4 telling me to go to church and thought out strong points through my life I will remember this conversation to the day I die as I write this with tears in my eyes he told me that child these encounters are not just dreams and deep down you know it but you see the enemy is angry at you because you finally decided to give me a try man on earth is soon coming to an end and I'm trying to save you there are many things you may and will not understand but I love you man doesn't know the things they do are say but soon it shall be clear I remember when I woke up my mom said I was hard down crying in my sleep and that she couldn't wake me for anything srry for this long story but I will say this I notice that God must have a strong hold on me cause even when I feel like I'm falling out of grace and I keep messing up he keeps catching me

Demonic Attacks NEW
by: Anonymous


I have been suffering from these kind of attacks for many years, since a child, I haven't overcome this yet. I don't really want to say much about it at the moment, other than it is definitely what would be referred to as demonic. I am exploring a way out, a way to break these things off of me. I am surprised at the sheer number of people who seem to suffer such similar afflictions. These things are definitely trying to destroy my life. I know that Jesus is the answer. I have found a site I am going to work through that looks as though it may be of help. I understand that those who do not believe in Christianity may not be interested, personally I will give most things a try! Most people don't believe you anyway, unless they witness something. The link I was referring to is http://www.bible-knowledge.com/spiritual-warfare-demonic-attacks/ I haven't done much more than have a brief preview of it, but it may help. I am determined to fight back, If I can't do that when trying to sleep, then I will have more time awake to do so. I aim to help as many people as I can. Hope to you all.

sleep attack NEW
by: Anonymous

I started getting these attacks when I was a little girl. I have always been able to see unexplained things that people have never believed when I've told them. When I was little I lived in a house that was inhabited by many evil entity's. In the house was the spirit of a little boy and little girl that seemed to be my age that were trapped. I've had this proven as when I was 4 years old I was caught talking to them and my uncle did research to find out the little boy and girl were actually murdered in this house. I moved out of this house when I was 5 and shortly after these attacks started. They always start in a dream where I can see myself talking to someone I know and when I try to say something to the person in my dream that I'm aware of this the attack begins. I have tried fighting and have been able to wake myself from the dream to discover a great black shape with a distorted face above me. I then have to demand this off of me in the name of Jesus and thi ins this is the only thing I've found to break it. About 3 years ago I found a necklace with the Lord prayer printed on this in a flea market and with this I pray very night. I have not had an attack since.

I had a dream where it felt like I was awake but asleep and I was laying on my back on my bed and everything went black and I woke up in this weird position with my whole body shaking and I couldn't move I couldn't speak I couldn't look around but my eyes were slightly open I woke up with my whole body tingling and my vision was a little blurry I woke up confused not knowing what happened I had a lot of ghost and demon encounters and it wasn't at home, it was all at school I always get feelings that someone is watching me and I sometimes see things that I don't know if their real or not I am wondering what had happened to me

Scared. NEW
by: Molly

Ever since I was a little girl I have felt nothing but followed. When I was 8 my mother passed away, I used to think it was her, but it isn't. I feel watched and its starting to get to a point where I cannot handle it. As a child I lived in an apartment for about 6 years and the entire time I would constantly hear men talking, things dropping, the basics. But one night I remember feeling weird, oddly touched, I was a little girl and I didn't know. Now today I try my best to block out the memory of a demon defying me. But it wont go away, about 3 weeks ago I experienced my first sleep paralysis. I was on vacation from school and I had stayed up a little later then usual. Because of my experiences before I am terrified to sleep with my tv off or my back facing the tv, I have my bed in a corner and sleep in between the walls. I refuse to sleep on the outside but for some reason that night I shut my tv off and laid with my back facing the tv and my face facing the wall, sleeping like that is uncomfortable and really scares me. I remember falling asleep, but then I woke up. I could not move obviously and I heard a loud ringing. It was odd because my eyes were not open but I vivdly remember being flashing between looking at my bedroom and looking at the wall. Thing started to fly all around my room, it just kept flashing..... it wouldn't stop it felt like a good 15 minutes of things moving. At one point I remember shaking and violently moving with no control I felt surrounded. All I remember repeating in my head was "you have no power over me" I said this the entire time in my head. I wasn't sure if the words were coming out or not but I did think it and hoped it would help. I wanted nothing but to leave my room. I woke up eventually right after and began crying. I felt like something was trying to enter my body and control me. I am not very religious seeing as both of my parents were taken from me between 8 and 14 and honestly I really don't know what todo.

Demonology NEW
by: Luke

These demonic attacks are real and not anything to do with one's sub-conscious. I have experienced these many times over the years. They are demonic spirits that try to take control of your body when you're vulnerable. My experiences often involve wrestling with them. Often the demon tries to bind my wrists. On all occasions without fail upon rebuking the demon in Jesus' name it departs. On one particular occasion before I resorted to the never failing rebuttal I got angry with the demon and it got more violent with me. On another occasion I've had my arm forced back with such power it hit the wall as I was 'asleep'. This is definitely not a dream state but a conscious state between sleep and awakenes. By His grace I've often been shown by God the future many times in dreams of things that happen the next day or few days in real life and I know what dream state is very well. Only just recently the most unusual encounter was when I could feel a demons entire spirit try to enter my body parallel/horizontally laying above me trying to wriggle in if that makes sense. After rebuking it in Jesus' name it fled. On another recent occasion for the very first time a female demon sat on my chest and tried to wrestle me. I knew this was a female because she had long hair and that's all I could see. It was also the very first time I physically saw one or part thereof as I just saw her long hair as she fled. The 'enjoyable' aspect of these encounters is that I'm never afraid, and always know I'm going to win the battle because I call upon Jesus and rebuke them in His name. One other occasion I wrestled with one (when wrestling they always try to bind my wrists/forearms) it went on for longer than usual and I asked it what his name was. He didn't respond the first time but did on the second time I asked and he tried to impersonate my brother. I know that when I'm good they leave me alone for a while but try to come back and break down your guard. As long as you walk in the light as He (Christ) is in the light you are untouchable. Refer to Psalms 34:7. Also refer to 1 Peter 5:8. I've seen 'miracles' almost every day when He shows me what transpires in the future (I call them miracles as they are to me but a true miracle is an instantaneous healing). If you want to learn more about demons search for and read the sermon titled "Demonology" by William Marrion Branham -- then you will understand.

HELP! NEW
by: Anonymous

I'm not one to believe in demons or anything religious or supernatural but this had me running to the nearest church

I had trouble sleeping due to disturbing sounds surrounding me eventually I ended up falling asleep and it felt as if I could feel myself going through the stages of deeper sleep while being awake eventually I felt myself being treated like a puppet (in the dream) I entered a house and got sat down on a couch with my bf standing to my left like everything was normal when he jolted in which I saw in my dream and felt (assumed he jolted in his sleep) he looks up ducking down I hear something running on the Celin and in the corner of my eye watch him follow the sound with his sight, all this going on while in my dream my eyes are closed yet I see everything and as I see everything from first person I also see it as third if I were awake day dreaming yet as if it was all actually happening I felt something jump down and hold me down I couldn't move I couldn't open my eyes I new I could see it in front of my face but yet I couldn't. I was unable to speak move or see I could feel it slowly putting more pressure on me and my chest not being able to breath I started to wake up and I could still feel it I woke up I could hear my bf on my right breathing but like the dream I couldn't speak move I could see i knew I was awake and still felt pressure until all of a sudden after about 6-10 sec after waking up it was just gone that instance I sat right up gasping for air holding my chest crying I had never been more terrified in my life

I couldn't sleep after that no negativity in my life I'm happy and everything's going perfect for me right now nothing like this has ever happened before and before this happened I was calmly and happy with a clear mind.

this is not sleep paralysis it is evil NEW
by: Anonymous

So Ive grown up in the churchmy whole life but just recenctly ive fallen reallybhard in love with Jesus. Last night I had a feeling that someone was watching.me and I am never afraid of night or the dark so this concerned me. I stayed up and drabk coffee because I justbwanted to be with God and I was reading.net my bible and sinfing to Him then I went into bed and justbsatbtalking to him. I was saying my normal prayers before going to bed when I heard someone whisper my name. immediately after that something started pulling me down into.my bed by force and it wasnt me falling asleep my eyes were wide open and I was conciius. I couldnt move and I ws going deeper and deeper and I said maybe four times " I rebuke you in the name of Jesus and then I was realeased. I think I was speaking aloud be c aise I could hear myself I dont know but afterwards I was just confised but I thanked Him for what he did for me and then went to sleep,bit to be honest I didnt have solid sleepni just felt I was in that place between being asleep and awake all night. I jnow evil is real Ive head satan tell me before that I was going to die and I believed it until I told my father and he said that he told me that because he knows that the life I live will be for God and satan doesn't want that. Im waging dull war on satan I hate him with all I have within me and thank God I know that we Christians have the victory in the end. Satan trying to take my life twice does nothing but strengthen my faith in god and makes me even more confident that I have purpose or else he wouldn't try so much to take my life. Jesus is the only name that demons listen to and who has conquered death so I will forever call on his name. to Him be all glory, honor, and power forever and ever and ever amen.

prayer is the best weapon of all evil NEW
by: Anonymous

I experienced a lot of "sleep paralysis" since i was on the age of my 20's until now. I dreamed of someone standing beside me or sometimes in my chest and its evil(like demons you see in movies) and they want to come inside of me or want to hurt me but i cant even move or talk. Even i sleep at afternoon i still experienced it. But every time it happens i always make a way to call the name of jesus"in jesus name"after i that i pray to make it stop until i wake up. But they always disturbing me last time i sleep between 4:30 pm(actually i am awake that time)but when i close my eyes i see a room with fire i hear voices then some force bring me inside and i think its inside of me i hear a voice of a big evil man(a demon) saying words that i cannot understand and i think it want to go inside of me but i shout and force my self to speak the words of GOD until it stops then i wake up. I get my bible and pray i did not tell my husband about it because he once saw me screaming and saying words that he cannot understand while i am asleep and that time i am dreaming of a demon. I always pray before i sleep so they cant disturb me again.

In Jesus Name NEW
by: Anonymous

I used to suffer from sleep paralyses on a regular basis. I became a Christian and ended up speaking to my pastor about these terrifying encounters and he told me to rebuke them in Jesus name. I explained that I couldn't speak when it happened. He told me to think the name of Jesus and it would go away. It worked and although it has happened again on the odd occasion, Jesus name brings an immediate end to the attack. Praise be to Jesus Christ. He is the answer in every way.

Sleep Paralysis? Ha! Try Demonic ATTACK! NEW
by: JP

I get so sick of people trying to provide a scientific explanation for EVERYTHING! The subconscious and underlying issues and blah blah blah! There is no "scientific explanation" for being plastered to my bed and having death in the form a HUGE 8ft black robed being in the corner of my room. #1. These aren't dreams, they are EXPERIENCES and SPIRITUAL ATTACKS! You are well aware of where you are and what you're thinking and everything in the area (TV dresser bed etc.) in most cases is in its exact spot. You can be lying in bed and just began to feel this overwhelming sensation of fear and discomfort. I'm able to look around my room in most cases but I am unable to speak, move any part of my body or scream. I've experienced this dream for the last probably 20 years (I'm only 24). When I was a little girl I experienced hearing multiple voices whisper in gibberish in the dark. The whispers would start off in a distance and make their way beside my bed followed by seeing a silhouette of a woman in the doorway of my bathroom right across the hall. After the voices got closer she would began to quickly make her way to me. I don't have enough room to explain those nights in detail but after about 5 years of of going through I got out of my bed in the dark and faced it. The whispers went away but the demonic attacks began. I've went through to many to name. I have a minimum of about 2 per month. But more recently in the last 2 weeks I've began to experience them in broad daylight while laying on my side and not my back. I've even started having them while laying next to my husband. I able to remember experiencing them but not in vivid detail like before. My husband said I called out for him 3 times ,actually looked him in the eyes and I got up and layed at the opposite side of the bed and positioned my body at an angle. When I woke up I was in my original position. Smh people, for all of you unbelievers in Christ out there with your "scientific explanations" for something that is clearly demonic, I dare you to REBUKE! REBUKE this "sleep paralysis" in THE PRECIOUS NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! Take it from a young woman that's has Bern going through it for years and just recently realized whose name to call on to bring me out! Jyat cry out in your mind, Jesus Help Me! and see if he doesn't come to your aid. I'm praying for everyone on this forum. God Bless!

I Pray Against the Demons Before They Come NEW
by: Anonymous

I also get these demonic attacks. Though they don't come regularly. They come maybe several times a year. The best way I've learned to keep them from happening is by pleading the blood of Jesus against any demonic attacks, evil entities/demonic spirits before I go to bed each night. I plead the blood of Jesus over the room and the whole house and cast them out in Jesus name. So my prayer goes something like this: "I plead the blood of Jesus against any evil spirits, demonic entities or demons that may try to come against me. I plead the blood of Jesus against any evil spirits or demons in this room and over this house. I cast them out in the name of Jesus. Thank you Father, thank you Jesus. I have full faith in what I've just plead the blood of Jesus over. In Jesus name I pray, Amen." And like other people have said, whenever I get attacked by one, I speak Jesus's name or simply say, "Praise the Lord," but it is so hard getting the words out when they've got a hold on you. So like one person said, maybe just thinking it will do it. Usually I say "Praise the Lord" with my spiritual voice and it works, but again, hard work when they're sitting on your throat or paralyzing you.

It's happened to me NEW
by: Maria

This happened to me twice, many years ago. I was in my late teens early 20's. I was asleep on my back both times. The 2nd time was the most frightening. I saw a demon, he was half animal, half manlike. He had huge wings and a face I will never forget. He stood at my door, I focused at what I was leering, and it moved swiftly, to the foot of my bed. I looked again and it moved!!! It was on top of me and I couldn't move. Almost like a heavy weight was placed all over my body and I could not lift my arms. I was petrified, I looked straight at it, it's demonic face displayed a evil smile. It leaned into my face and inhailed taking my breath. I could not breath. I could see my roommate, asleep in the bed next to me. It was fighting!!! My roommate heard me moaning. It released me or I broke free, I fall out of bed on to the floor. I'm on all four, trying to regain control of my breathing, almost as if I had, had a bad asthma attack. I could not breath, it took awhile, my heart was pounding. My muscles and were sore all day. And my throat felt as if I had burned it. It never happened again and pray it never does.

Peace from attacks. NEW
by: Anonymous

First and foremost I want to share that I am a Christian with a growing relationship with the Lord my Father, I also have a degree in psychology and have studied sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis could be explained scientifically of course, however it is 100% a result of a demonic attack. Do not be afraid. I've read over most of these comments and some shed a lot of light, some are misleading.
Since I was a little girl I have had vicious nightmares about demonic possession. I have heard my name whispered and have experience this sleep paralysis dozens of times. Last night I experienced it again. My boyfriend and I try our hardest to live with out sin. As a believer I Christ I am more of a target of attack when I sin, however I am stronger than the devil himself when I refrain from sin, fast and pray. Well last night I sinned, I don't know why I just did. When falling asleep twice I was attacked. I felt my body vibrating and my body was heavy. I couldn't move and I opened my eyes and there was a black thing with glowing eyes. It was all blurry because I had my glasses off. I knew exactly what it was. I have had this happen since I was a little girl. All I could do was from my throat slur and mumble "the blood of Jesus." I moaned it until I was actually screaming and broke its foothold. I asked my boyfriend about this who is a teacher to me. He said that sometimes when we sin our protection is lowered. So what does it mean to sin? Most people know the obvious big sins like drug use or adultery. I'm sorry for those that get offended but you must know if you are getting attacked: sex before marriage, sex with a same sex partner, living together before marriage. These are just a few that a year ago I didn't agree with that was hard to understand. A year ago or more I was living with my ex and was in an abusive relationship. That's what brought these attacks back. In order to stop these attacks you have to refrain from sin. Stay away from ouiji boards. That should be a given its witch craft. Lastly, if this happened to you as a child or its happening to your children you must pray to renounce a generational curse or generatinal sins and soul ties. Children are born In sin but they do not know what sin means. So if they are being attacked it is from the sins of their ancestors. This is why I was attacked as young as 3. Pray. Fast. And use the ne of Jesus.

since I was younger. .... NEW
by: Anonymous

Where do I begin... the first time i can remember something not right was when i started having the exact same dream... but this night and this dreamq true story my parents will tell you the same. It was around Christmas time and i was maybe 6 or 7 cant remember exactly but one night my parents were talking about going into Drnver the next day to pick up my moms outfits for the Christmas skit for church. I didnt think twice that night i dreamt that we went my mom left me and my dad in the car, and a rough looking man walked up and held my dad to gun point to ask for money while my dad was reading the newspaper in the front seat. He knocked on the window with the gun.. so yes normal dream from the unknown for the next day. Well next day we go to Denver, keep in mind that morning at breakfast i spoke about my dream and said maybe we shouldnt go today. Parents being parents we went anyway, so mom went in the store dad and i had to repark the van so we wouldnt be blocking the door way. Sitting there for a min, i start to panic as i see the guy from my dream start to walk and look at our van and my dad reading the paper, now remember after moving the van dad got in to the passenger side. I start to beg my dad not to get out of the car but to climb over and move the van. He said mikala stop i then really get scared as i tell my dad that is the guy from my dream. My dad must of believed me because he said get down hide. Me not being able to move much started to pray, the gentleman did knock on the window did have a weapon not sure what but my dad said i have no money my wife has the money aNd ahe is in the store i start to cry, and pray my mom doesnt walk out the store at the moment and i must of been praying loud because the gentlemen looked back at me and left. Now this has never happened again with my dreams. Im now 29 but what does happen, these dreams you speak about not being able to move, speak scream yell, as you are feeling attacked. No one believed me for years about this until a brother of mine started experiencing the samething, we now comfort eachother he has brought it up to his therapist she states in anxiety. I dont believe that for one min, because as soon as i say to myself during these attacks, i comand you to leave in the name of jesus. Or as last night there was one i hadnt ever experienced as i was being attacked with demons putting thoughts in my head of things people will never know in my dream awake i run to my parents room climb in bed tell them its coming not to believe a word or thoughts they put in your head... my dad slips away with the darkness i climb on my mom stomach up held her hands and start to yell together i rebuke you in the name of Jesus leave.. i rebuke you in the name of jesus leave.. when i awoke my kids were talk8ng in there sleep. I quickly prayed over them for sound thoughts and dreams and prayed for a guardian angel.

Experience, evil carnival music. NEW
by: Anonymous

This happened before I moved changed my room up. I am religious but have been not as close to God as I should be. Well a couple of years ago, I feel asleep as usual then awoke. I thought something is unusual. Well, I was right this music started playing. It was like carnival music with a very evil tone, to it. I laid there for what seemed like minutes listening to it. I am not sure if was unable to move. When I could move I immediately ran to my parents room, still alseep of course. Waked my mother up and explained it, but she didn't hear anything or any panic. We checked my room, and the only source was a globe type then of Moses that played that tone. Very terrifying, final years later(now) I learned I was attacked. May not be like everyone else, but when it does happen it is scary. Recently I added a painting of a rancher carrying a calf in storm, he is carrying a lantern glowing. It verse, saying I will carry you and where it came from. As I am going to sleep, I think about the painting and how God carries me as a stray sheep, and the many blessings he has done for me.

Always sleep with pillow magnetic south to cure yourself of monsters NEW
by: Anonymous

Your sleep posture is making you vulnerable to nefarious entities!

What direction is your pillow/headboard of your bed facing?

I suspect you may be sleeping with the top of your head facing magnetic north or equally bad magnetic west. Magnetic north is called the "death position" because coffins are buried facing north and if you sleep north ghosts appear in your life, says the folklore.

The people of Bali say "sleeping magnetic west means you will have no love, everyone will hate you and you will experience violence" I paraphrased but Google search "Balinese sleep north"

Many cultures recommended that you sleep with the top of your head facing magnetic south and feet facing magnetic north. An alternate position is your head facing magnetic east and feet facing magnetic west. Use an electronic compass, it has to be exactly south, any deviation such as south west of south east makes you open to nefarious entities.

Never sleep with head facing magnetic north cuz you are guaranteed to see ghosts and have nightmares.

Also never ever sleep on your back. Sleeping on the back is the posture of the corpse in a coffin and "vastu" says sleeping on the back ruins the brain. Try to sleep on the left side of your body always to get wealthy. Sleep on the right side is ok but not best and monsters probably attacked you while you slept on the right side of your body of slept on your back. Sleeping on left side is best and you get rich wealthy. Never sleep on the stomach you suffocate, sudden infant death syndrome.

I recommend you read this website, it explains the significance of monsters in sleep. www.revelatorium.com/starrgram19.html

Also Google search "vastu sleep direction" and search also "sleep facing south" to get more information. Sleeping facing south makes you wealthy and healthy, sleeping east makes you intelligent but not wealthy so east is for children still attending school.

The information I wrote was for the northern hemisphere, I dont know about sleep position for the southern hemisphere of earth.

Also, what is your blood type? If you are blood type Rhesus Negative (Rh negative) then this website might be informative

Best of luck! Feel free to Pass this information on to non-demonic people.

demonic attack NEW

This is all spiritual, no science. I also have a dark feeling over me when Im sleeping at times.
I know it is a demonic force that wants to possess me. However I called out the blood of Jesus and it gets angry and leave me. Science wants to deny the spirit relam but it is real. Those who don't belive the spirit relam are under satan's spell. Anywho, this is spiritual battleand one have to fight in the name of Jesus.

Demons do exist, therefore so does God. NEW
by: Anonymous

I have experienced many things since around the age of 4. I am not going to go into great detail, because it will bore you.

However, this thread sent shivers down my spine when I sore the demon sat on the body picture, because I have experienced what can only be described as exactly what is described in this thread.

Now I am also very spiritual, I have experienced many outer body experiences, visions, etc, etc in the past, impossible for me to prove the visions, but I know things that many others do not. No point in trying to explain them, those messages were meant for me and a few very trusted other people who try to assist me with decoding these messages.

Anyway, late 2014 into early 2015, I was going through a series of these attacks, this feeling of being pinned down in my bed, not being able to shout, etc, etc. This has happened before in the past, but this was different. Now I will say this, I pushed whatever it was off me and went for it. Even though I could not see it, I went for it and it knew that I can give as good as it gave.

The last time I had this happen to me though, which was around 3 months ago, I actually called out for help from God. Well this may sound really corny and cheesy, but after shouting out for help from God a few times, this demon or whatever it is that has I think been around me all my life, simply disappeared. Now I have not experienced any other disturbances since this and you have to wonder whether God really does exist.

One of the reasons I have had so many visions and outer body experiences, especially from the age of 23 till around age 31, was because I asked for help from God to help me get over some great losses in my life. Sure enough, I was shown things, I think it was messages to let me know I am not alone. I was also given the chance to leave this plain of existence. I am not going into great detail because people can not comprehend what I have experienced in my life. But again, I was helped, it gave me faith.

I am not religious before anyone says I am. I am spiritual, I am aware things exist in other plains of existence and if anyone says it is all in the mind, then you are not open minded and are never likely to experience the amazing things you can experience in outer body experiences as one example.

I have seen 4 full apparitions in my life as well. Not orbs, but full apparitions. I feel them, good and bad, they seem to want to communicate with me as if I am come kind of conduit. That includes good and bad.

Demons genuinely exist. When you have an outer body experience you are in what I call the void. It looks exactly like this world, but it is a dark place, a place that you can feel beings and things watching you. They know you are there and it is a place you go to when you pass. It is not a place to be trifled with as much evil resides their. I do not care what a medium has to say about all this pure light stuff, they too have to go through what I call the void first. This is where these demons come from. If you do not have faith in a higher being or dare I say it God, then if you experience OBE's and drag something back with you, then you will have to deal with that demon or demons by yourself. Be careful, they are powerful, but a demon can be pushed back by brute force and they can sometimes be the ones who fear you.

Never fear, that is what they want and what they want you to feed on. Do not tempt fate as well.

Attack no more NEW
by: Anonymous

These attacks usually happens when god has something great for you or when you are getting Closer to the holy spirit. The devil/enemy wants to make you believe that he is greater than Jesus himself through his counterfeit actions. But Jesus proclaims differently. When this happens shout out a simple prayer to Jesus and the enemy flees faster than a blink of an eye.

He has a demon NEW
by: Dayton Ohio

I have the same kind of dreams every night until tonight, I'm staying at my mothers and her boyfriend is asleep next to me in his chair. As soon as I woke up I knew this was his demon, he has had this demon for years its obvious. I think it maybe looking for a new home because my mothers boyfriend has recently turned his life around and started going to church.I'm afraid to go back to sleep as he is still asleep on his chair, it came to me as a small girl. I wrestled her and she ended up running from me once she pissed me off. When the dream started off I couldn't speak I screamed for my mom and nothing came out, I felt as though I had been punched in the nose and my whole face swelled up to where I could barely see. I eventually woke up until I realized I was still in the same dream. I knew this was a demon when I woke up I instantly prayed to god and told the demon to leave me alone and my moms boyfriend woke up and said did you see that it freaked me out I said yeah your demon! He said now you know what I deal with every night I try to tell your mom!

Demon Attacks NEW
by: Anonymous

I have also had these demon attacks, the latest being just yesterday night. Just last night, I felt as if something dark had entered the room and I knew these were demons. They pressed me down on my chest and I felt as if I was stopping to breathe. I tried to scream or shout and no words seemed to be coming out of mouth. Eventually I managed to shout in prayer saying ‘I rebuke you demons in the name of JESUS! I rebuke you – you have no authority over man! In the name of JESUS!’ and as I did so the demons fled. I agree and want to encourage others that the only way to stop these demonic attacks is to repent of all sins and follow JESUS. Psalm 37:23: 'The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.' Isaiah 26:1: 'Our city is strong! We are surrounded by the walls of God's salvation.' God bless!

Here is my story,

My first episode of SP happened about a year ago. I thought that I was awake but I couldn't move. Then I thought I saw a dark figure at my bedroom doorway. I tried to scream but couldn't. Then I woke up. I was terrified. I immediately posted what happened on fb and one of my friends told me that it was SP. I read about it online a little but left it alone. I had more episodes of SP and at times it made me scared to sleep. I researched more and found that when I had my next episode, I was able to control the fear. I told myself that I was ok, that there wasn't anyone in the room and that it was SP, I would keep trying to wiggle my toes and I would wake up. I was able to push through it. I hadn't had any episodes for about 6 months or so until last week. It was the same as the last time, I was able to recognize what was going on and talk myself through it again. This probed me to do even more research and I read about how SP can be a gateway to an out of body experience. The very next night after reading people's stories about SP and its relation to OBEs, I actually had one! Or perhaps it was all just a dream because I had recently read about OBEs. My OBE experience:

I was experiencing sleep paralysis. This time I was sleeping on my side/stomach. (all of my SP experiences prior I had been sleeping on my back) It was about 4am. I have tinnitus and some nights I have a hard time falling asleep. This was an unusually late night though. Anyway, I was experiencing sleep paralysis. All of the sudden my whole body started trembling/vibrating (not sure if it really was or if I was actually still) unlike anything I had ever felt before. I had very loud ringing in my ears but not like my tinnitus. It was much louder and sounded more like radio static. I then felt my body come out of my body (almost exactly like I had read about one testimony of their OBE). I remember knowing what was happening. I remember knowing that It was an OBE while it was happening. It only lasted about 15 seconds as I became somewhat scared and felt as though I was grabbing at my bed sheets and pulled myself back into my body. If I hadn't found other testimonies I would have thought it was a seizure or something...or perhaps I wouldn't have even had the experience. I have only told a few people for fear they will think I am crazy. Luckily, my boyfriend believes me and remembers having an OBE as a pre-teen. My father also believes me because he said he experienced an OBE when him and I were in a car accident about 7 years back. I think that the next time I experience sleep paralysis I will try to will myself out of my body and try to experiment a little like others that I have read about online. Anyone else have an experience like mine? I would be interested in hearing about it.

Yes some have these experiences very young. That is why we must educate our kids. I started to truly get into my bible reading and praying. Seeking to know God. I had just finish praying and laid on the bed and within 5min some thing blanketed me and begin to press after I couldn't breath I called on Jesus. I looked up in the ceiling and saw strips off lite over my head. I turned to the side and there was this big dog looking thing. I was well aware and after calling on Jesus it loosed me. I got up and begin to call the devil a lie and have lived for God ever since. The next week I seen the demons. Yes no one can tell me that I was asleep. I've also witnessed a man dieing and he was so afraid that man saw what was in the room for him. He was dien that night. Ppl don't be fooled pray call Jesus it will loose you. God is real and there is power in the name Jesus. Got kids that have night mares. Tell them to call Jesus even while asleep that name have power. Hope I was of help. I was shocked when I saw this about sleep paralysis.Im like u got to be kidding me. That's like telling me I didn't work last night I was asleep.

What the reality is. NEW
by: DCS150

Hi,

Sometime ago I left a message on this thread about what I thought at the time was a demonic force potentially attaching itself to me. Well I have come to the following conclusion.

Sleep paralysis if you notice from pretty much all the scientific research normally happens when you are laying on your back asleep. This makes 100% sense to me, because when you sleep on your back, all your organs and innards are obviously going to be in a downward trend, leading to what feels like you are being pinned down by something. The weight of your innards is enough to make you feel as if you are being pinned down.

I made a claim that I had been pinned down on numerous occasions in the past. I now believe this is purely because all your innards head toward your back when you are laying on your back, which as I have stated above leads to the feeling of being pinned down.

I would say that has been debunked. Not to say demonic forces do not exist, I am sure they do, but it is not sleep paralysis.

I also doubt the reliability of what people call God. I have no doubt higher intelligence exists, but I very much doubt it is the "bible God". Nice to have a faith, but lets be realistic here. When has this God so many follow ever done anything for any of you?. He us supposedly perfect, and we are all in his perfect image?. Hmmm, that makes no sense to me. We are made in his image are we?. That would mean that this God is basically a skitziod. Think about what I am trying to say. If we are in his perfect image, then how cone our world is so messed up?.

When you start to dig deep and question what is basically a mythical being, you start to piece together a pattern to what appears to be human kinds biggest con.

What really lays beyond is spiritual for sure, but I am afraid it is not God, or certainly nothing resembling the biblical God so many follow.

I could go on, but I can do as I like in my life and still have the chance to pass through into other dimensions when I die.

No biblical God awaits you. It is your body and soul, not anyone or any beings soul, yours. Therefore you do not need to fear this false biblical God talked about, as it does not exist.

What exists is a spiritual realm that is known as the void. This is were all end up before moving into other dimensions, possibly coming back over and over as the same individual, but in other dimensions. This is not the decision of any biblical God. However, there is what one may call a purge. Again this I think may be part of a cleansing process to allow you to be pure for your return or next life.

Remember, we are mostly energy. Therefore when we die, that energy must go somewhere. So the theory of shifting into a new life or dimension is not so far fetched as you may think.

I gave experienced many things, seen spirits, had outer body experiences and been in the void. No God was there, but the feeling of many eyes watching and in a place you do not trifle with is what is actually in the background.

Basically, the mythical and biblical version of God has been put in place to try and control the human race, to make you fear. Well do not fear. Carry on being evil or good. The end result is the same for all.

A higher being is actually the collective mind, not the mythical one who seems to be hiding all the time and fears us. Meaning the biblical version of God is a big lie and myth.

Think about what I am trying to say. Be spiritual, sure but I would not follow what is a false God that has failed to prove him, her or itself to us, which would suggest a weak and cowardice God with zero say on you or I. Just try and think logically with what I am trying to say ok.

Thanks and take care all. 😊

Demon made me evil NEW
by: Anonymous

I once woke up in the night, could not move at all. Then something was sitting on top of me, no idea what it was but it looked like a female demon of somekind.

I first thought it was a dream and try to force my body to wake up.. but that did not help, suddenly my mouth went open and i felt something go into my body. That is all that i remember, the next day i woke up and thought it was normal, just a nightmare.. but it was so real, and looking it up on the internet it seems more people had this phenomenal.

I don't believe in any god what so ever.

But my life went crazy after that, i have very bad social skills now, cannot trust other people, dont want to make friends with anyone.. having evil thoughts and just fed up against the world..

Maybe one day i will be cleansed.

out of body experience NEW
by: Samantha

I've had this phenomenon happen to me on several occasions throughout the years...i am asleep but I am awake...1st time it happened I was napping and my son came in and asked for some candy. A voice told him yes while I was screaming no but no sound came out...paralyzed I felt myself levitating off the bed, I stopped fighting and let myself float and when I opened my eyes I see a puppet of the angel of death floating above me...after that the paralysis would overtake me and I would try to fight and scream but I could feel myself being dragged off the bed, I would try to pray in my condition and I this is when I begin speaking in tongues. Recently my precious pooch passed away. I was home alone and decided to take a nap. I woke up paralyzed. I was able to lift up my arm but not my physical arm, I was shocked my arm was translucent and then I heard the sound of my dogs chain dragging back and forth at the foot of my bed. I managed to unglue my eyes from my translucent arm to see my dog anxiously pacing back and forth at the foot of my bed, remember he has passed on, and then I felt it something was trying to drag me off the bed. I start groping at the sheets trying to keep from being dragged off, remember my physical body is paralyzed. I start saying Jesus over and over again. Then it stops.

It's true NEW
by: Anonymous

It occurred to me quite some time ago about a year ago.I remember everything that happened on the day of my worst attack.A pressure was soon placed against my whole body. I hear this constant troll like growls in my ears on the other hand I felt a little boy touching my hand like he was trying to hold my hand and giggling.Like he wanted me to go play with him.In my mind all i said was Lord i declare you to remove these demons away from me. It went on for about another 10 minutes and soon I was free. I woke up crying and catching back my breath. Even til this day it leaves me wondering what was up and who was that little boy? Was he trying to save me or was he also a demon..Snice that night I never had them ever again..God bless you all and remember just pray and things will be okay.

I have had sleep encounters since I was maybe 10 or so. They st arted. happenning after plaey with a quia board. I use to make the thing move thinking it was funny for everyone. Then it started to move itself. There started tobe
Sracting. Noises in the attic which was above my bedroom. Then I would experience a feeling of oppression like something was sitting on my chest. I could never see the face but it looked cloaked and dark. It would scare me so much because I could not move or talk and Iwas paralized. It would call my name in a demomic voice. I used tobe dragged a ross the floor and sometimes to the ceiling. Anyway, the first time my now husband spent the night in my apartment was the last time either of us stayed there. He said something tried to grab him by the neck and pull him up. Since then We moved into a b ouse I was sensitive to but now I live in a home that I don not feel the heaviness in. I am a Christian but now I am becoming open minded and worry that I am opening up tosomething again. I almost want to challenge it if I show strength and no fear.

Demons attack NEW
by: Rhodes

I have for years been attacked by demons while in bed. It only happens when I'm about to wake up.It doesnt matter which side I sleep on, it happens when backward sleeping, sleeping on my stomach, or sideways.It alwyas happens at night or afternoon when sleep to get some rest. The demon is always a huge mass of a man I would say. Its always so powerful that whenever I try to wrestle, kick with legs and arms the demon overpowers me but every time I rebuke it in the name of Jesus Christ, it disappears. This takes a few minutes, I try to speak, but my mouth feels numbed and my brain feels covered with heavy weight. It happened today when I went to sleep in the afternoon. I felt a huge man in bed pushing me to the wall and I almost fell and that's when I started fighting it. It also happened 3 weeks ago in a hotel that I stayed for a night. It was just before 4.00am that I felt someone pull my duvet cover, and in seconds he laid on top of me with all his heavy weight. I was so scared and thought he was gonna rape me, I called on Jesus name and the demon left. I couldn't sleep anymore. It really annoys and scares me to death every time I go to bed. I live all alone in my apartment and its hard. How can I get help?

I agree with your statement because I have been told there was possesssions of my ancestors. In Italy. Also my mom has always had these oppressive occurances while she was alive. I remember my Grandfather bought a book that the Seal was never tobe broken or you would sell your soul or something. It was a how to get rich type of book he sent away for in the 1960s. All I could ever do is call out in the blood of Jesus, it seems like it takes forever to get the words finally out. I can say that I have not had any issues in my new home with my husband as he experienced once in my apartment and told it he wasnot afraid of it... You can also sense thickness to places if you are sensitive and should stay away from them.

Pray for me please. NEW
by: Soni

It doesn't matter what position I sleep, it still happens. There are trickster-like beings outside at night that like a thief look for the spiritually inclined, troubled souls trying to make life right, innocent souls etc to attack through open windows (especially). There are entities that use the light of the good for a source of energy and that may be attracted to the person and self attach. I've also noticed when streets get a drug dealer move in or some crime occurs, it increases negative spiritual incidences and energy. It cones from their previous place, new crimes, and indecent things happening due to their criminal involvement. For me anything negative that I notice, get knowledge of etc directly affect the rate of which I suffer from sleep paralysis and bad luck. Ive never seen much awake. I've dreamed about negative entities most of my life. The past few years the sleep paralysis has been a new form of contact for these entities. I have had a few auditory experiences ( not a lot). I tend to know a lot about people and tend to be right when I describe their situation. I feel maybe I have sone light or something a bit extra than normal that attracts the entities to me.. All I can say is accept God into life. Any religion that believes there. Is one true God (creator), is sufficient. Saying Jesus save me or the Our Father doesn't always work. Maybe increasing the repitition of saying the prayer etc like saying it for an hour will be much more effective. Believing Jesus, God or beings of the purest light exist and will protect you and love you is also vital. Changing bedroom is helpful. I remain drained, energy less, depressed, enraged for sometimes a week or so more after the incident. Weirdly sleeping pills stop it while you are on them. Since it interferes with the naturL sleep waves ( I think), it acts like a security deadlock. Sleeping pills are habit forming and have their own set of problems which ends up trading one set of problems (spiritual) for another ( health). So use medication soaringly. I can't handle them so I don't use them.

It enters me NEW
by: Jakkiblu

Its happened 3 times now. I am not hallucinating and the first time i was awake. It awakened me by shaking the bed. I went to rebuke it without Jesus name first and it got pissed - entering my body full force and screaming at me in a repulsive disgusting voice- i have no idea what it said as i didnt recognize the language. I ran from it inside my body screaming for Jesus and it was forced out through the top of my head. Ive had the paralysis thing but thisvis different. I feel it enter me and i cannot move naturally or force it out.Last night it was in me and it had vulgar sex with my boyfriend through a dream and when we finished there was blood everywhere and a black bloody thing was pulsing on the bed. In the dream after that his cat(he does not own a cat) but his cat kept attacking me because of the demon it sensed within me. I screamed for Jesus inside me and it released me, leaving me. I went to bed and awoke only to cry my eyes out. It was terrifying because it doesnt hold me down...it enters my body.

Jesus is the answer NEW
by: Anonymous

It sounds as though you seem to be open to this entity for some reason. Rebuke it in the name of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior when you first feel it present!! Tell it that you are covered with the Blood Of Jesus Chrit and Demand it to go back to whence it came never to return again!! Be Stong and Believe in your words,Jesus is Stonger than whatever Evil is attacking you. Keep in touch in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!!!

My experience with demonic dreams NEW
by: Reb

2 Timothy 1:7 declare that God has not given us a spirit of fear:but of love, power, and a sound mind: and that sound mind means a control or a change mind. I believe that for a Christian, these dreams are demonic in nature & not science, now I'm no expertise on demonic dreams but, I have had enough of them to understand how they operate, in my experience they generally attacks me in the front while another one, stands behind me, these dreams doesn't comes often, and not as intense as it use to be, but every now and then they do creep on me without notice:now the question is; is why do they come, there are several reason:1) our mind he be been entertain by the things of the world; eating before going to bed, or opening demonic doors you should have not open,also it could be because you pare close to a breakthrough: repent, pray before going to bed you should be OK.

Not scared anymore NEW
by: Rhodes

I get these attacks every week, sometimes they happen 4 times a week. My sister, her husband, her kids, my friends, and I have been praying really hard. From Monday through Saturday, I got no attack. This left me sleeping good and had dreams of the future for friends and family. A week before, I slept only 2 hrs a night which left me depressed, going crazy, feeling tired at work, and having the feeling of giving up. I was scared of my house and didn't want to leave office after work.
It was only again last night that it happened after 7 days. This time I didn't see the demon, it covered my face with some pink woollen fabric while it tried to have sex with me. I called on Jesus and it disappeared in a min. I am not as scared as before, I believe that the demons cannot kill me, my body and soul belongs to my God, he gave me this soul and body and only him can take them away.
