Can't Move Or Talk And Felt Being Touched Sexually

by Maria
(Anaheim )

This happened last night. I was sleeping and then all of a sudden I felt a big weight on top of me, like something was pushing me down.

I was unable to move and I had no control over my body. I tried to open my eyes for the longest time but as soon as I got them to open I was paralyzed and as hard as I tried to roll over to my side my body wasn't moving at all. I was laying on my back, I could see the ceiling, and on the corner of my eye I could barely see my sister who was sleeping next to me (we share beds).

I tried calling her name so she can wake me from this but my voice wasn't coming out I tried with all my breathe to call her name then finally I could hear my voice calling her name but very soft I kept focusing my energy to do it for a while but nothing was happening.

I started to panic. I felt something evil was there with me. I felt a bad presence next to me and it was like my sister was there next to me too but I couldn't call out to her. I just kept hoping really bad that she would wake me.

All of a sudden that's when I felt someone's hand rub on my butt and poke my butt hole and then continued to rub my butt. I still couldn't move or see what was going on. For a second I thought it was my sister like saying "I'm right here don't worry I'm with you now" but then I was like wait no this is not my sister this is something evil making fun of me... I wanted this to stop, I wanted to be able to move so I can wake up.

I did a small prayer and I finally woke up but when I fell back asleep it started all over again. I couldn't move my body so I started praying again I was trying to scream my prayers out I then slowly was able to clap my hands together as I was doing my prayers and that's when I woke up again and continued to pray before I went back to sleep again.

If this ever happens to someone please just pray with faith and it will all go away!! This is something that happens to me here & then but I always try to fight it till it goes away and it does.

Happened Just This Morning NEW
by: Anonymous

This is been happening to me my whole life. It happened to me just this morning. I was laying on my chest and something with a really deep voice was laying in bed behind me. I could feel body weight and it was whispering in my ear. It's breath was warm. It's sort of climbed semi on top of me. I was laying on my tummy and I felt something press against my behind. That's when the awkward humping motion started. I didn't know whether to be calm or to panic. But panicking usually never works. I often just avoid sleeping if it keeps happening. But I will try prayer. That has definitely worked time and time again
