Shadow People and Dark Demonic Entities During Sleep Paralysis

I just made a video about my sp experiences, you can see it at YouTube.com/barnabusdonn....here are some of my experiences and my take on what sp is:

I had my first experiences with sp in 1996 when I was 16. I woke up in total paralysis and could see around my room. My room was exactly the same, the door creaked opened slowly and a dark figure entered. On this occurrence, I didn't have the chocking or sitting on my chest. Then it transitioned into an involuntary out of body experience where my spirit was floating uncontrollably above my bed. I could see my brother in his bed and I was trying to get back in my body.

I didn't have another sp or obe experience until 2005 and have had about 15 experiences since then. It usually happens to me just in the moment of falling asleep or shortly after. I feel the tingling feeling rushing down my body from head to toe as one would feel when a muscle is "going to sleep." I am conscious of the fact that I'm going into an sp episode and usually think to myself, "Here we go again."

At this point, I have had a variety of experiences but I will start with the most common: seeing one or two shadowy black figures standing at the side of or foot of my bed, they are staring at me and upon seeing them it is the worst terror imaginable.

Sometimes they aren't there at first and the door creaks open and it or they enter. Once they had hoods and red glowing eyes. Once a bright light shone into my bedroom window and i clearly saw the typical alien figure with the large round head and huge eyes. Besides the intense fear there is always the sense of an evil presence, even the times when I don't see an entity.

Many of the times I am being strangled and feel a real pressure on my chest.

There are also times when I interact with my wife and kids in my bedroom but when I finally get out of the sp, they are all sound asleep. Once, I heard my son calling for help in his bedroom so I walked over there to help only to find his window open, when I reached to close the window, a black cat with evil glowing eyes bite my hand and I couldn't shake the cat of my hand. At that moment, a hideous voice said audibly, "we're gonna kill your children!"

Another time the demonic figure with glowing eyes was at the side of my bed and leaned over my head and pressed towards me to attack. First I just head growling then he screamed his name in my ear three time, "Darius, Darius, Darius!" I could feel his hot breath in my ear, it was super real and scary.



Other times when there are no attacks during sp, I'm just fighting to get out of it. Some things happen to me that aren't so common but I have found other sp sufferers that have these too:
False wake up...several times I fight to get out of the sp and finally "wake up" in my bed and think finally I'm out of it. I look around and see my room just the same, get up and do various activities only when something happens that let's me know this is not real, I realize I never got out of sp, when I wake up for real, its all the more freaky to come back to the real reality.

I have also been talking to my wife during sp and then she turns into a dark demonic figure who then attacks me.

Sp mostly happens to me while sleeping on my back but have had several time when I sleep on my side. The strangest thing is that when in enter sp while sleeping on my side, when I sit my torso up to look around, I feel the distinctive spinning one feels when you stand up fast from touching your toes and you regain your balance.

Also, when fighting so hard to get out of sp, I had strained so hard to move a limb that I have actually moved my "spirit" arm or leg up out of my body. This is also how I explain the ability to look around the room while in sp, It's my spirit that is moving all the while my body is paralysed.

I have read extensive material on sp over the years and tons of theories but have come up with my take on what sp is. Although I am an active Christian, I don't agree with what most Christians say about sp. I believe what the Bible teaches about demons and that there is a spiritual dimension that is unseen to our human eyes.

I explain my opinion more in my YouTube video. I have yet to find a commonality as to why sp happens or what causes it but as sure as I know the reality we know and live in everyday, I know these are not hallucinations. Sp is so strange that it forces us to figure out what we truly believe in...and that comes with much unbiased searching.

SP
by: PK

I find it strange that other people would envision similar shadowy figures. I fought them, dare I say I killed some of them and cast them down to hell to await judgement. I never did drugs and stopped cold turkey on alcohol several years ago. Anything or anyone wants to attack me in my sleep or in my waking moments be prepared to see hell up close.

shadows/grim reaper
by: kayla

I have had so many encounter. One time the tall one standing by my bed told me he was Jesus, that he wanted me to join an army. The other ones were smaller and oh ya this was all in my mind, the conversation we had. I knew jesus would never put fear in me so i made a phone call to my dad who also has had bad experiences because i asked the tall one if my dad knew about it and he told me yes. My dad told me to go to the stress center but i think its a warning maybe from the lord and it just made me stronger. I would like to talk to someone who is educated about it cuz i seen the grim reaper shadow. I wish someone could tell me why.

Responses to Questions Posed in the Video
by: Anonymous

I just started experiencing SP in the past few months. Its happened three times. Here are my responses to your questions:

(1) False wake ups. I have also experienced this. I thought that I was awake and went on to do other tasks in my apartment, but then something would trigger the realization that I was still paralyzed and not awake yet. This happened three times in the same incident.

(2) Voices. I had SP again today and a shadowy hooded figure standing in the middle of my room was speaking in a raspy voice. But unlike you, I couldn't understand what he was saying.

(3) "Spirit-man." I haven't tried so hard to wake up that my "spirit arm" leaves my physical body.

(4) Marijuana. I've never done drugs.

(5) Physical/Spiritual Realm. I think you're onto something with your theory. I am also a follower of Jesus Christ, and I believe that there is a spiritual realm that exists that we normally don't perceive as well as the physical world in which our usual existence takes place.

* * *

Shout out to the Website: I am very appreciative of this website and this forum. The fact that Stanford University and medical professionals are associated with this website lend it great legitimacy. To the students that maintain it: thank you! Its reassuring to know that the things I see during SP are not "abnormal."

* * *

My personal thoughts: Upon learning that people have commonly experienced the terror of hallucinations of demons/evil figures for centuries and across cultures, I can't help but think that this is spiritual warfare. I don't think that human beings would choose to hallucinate about evil figures that want to hurt them. So why is there a general consensus that when we do see things during SP, we are acutely aware that they are evil? People across the world and across centuries are not collaborating in their reports of what happened. I think this is a venue for spiritual attack.

For those who are desperate, try saying this in your head next time you see an evil figure during SP: "In the name of Jesus, I command you to leave!" Even if you don't believe in Jesus, I would encourage you to try it. According to the Bible, Jesus has authority over demons/evil spirits. When you speak in His name, you are speaking with His authority, and this should make them leave. It never hurts to try.

Barney, thank you for sharing your experiences. My suggestion to you as one believer to the other, is to encourage you to go before the Lord and ask if there is any stronghold in your life that must be conquered. Also, if you haven't already, I would encourage you to assemble a personal prayer team. Satan doesn't waste his time on people that aren't a threat to him. My guess is that God is using you powerfully or planning to. Don't let Satan stand in the way of the effectiveness of God's ministry through you. Stand firm! :)

by: tiger girl

I am so happy to find people who have experienced the same things.These shadow figures are seen by people all over the world so i don't think its just our minds. I am a Christian and if u try to say "leave me alone in the name of Jesus" it goes away.Whatever these things are they seem to either bother us when we are moving up spiritually (probably trying to fight our progress) or when we are vulnerable (sick, sad, tired, hateful and etc..). I am only 18 and for two years i have been free of REM paralysis until two days ago when it happened when I was sick.I used to have it a couple times a month but it has definitely calmed down. some tips are to stay away from horoscopes, tarot cards,Ouija board or anything that can be associated with the occult.Even though I know not everyone believes in god it is obvious that there is a need for spiritual protection.Try to pray. And don't go to bed with negative feelings because if they are demons they will be attracted to your negative energy. I used to be depressed as a child and SP was just the perk that came with it.

Apparently, this can even happen JUST from doing heavy occult research, don't know if that's true or not. I also know a woman who is a Wiccan and we have never talked about her beliefs and exactly what she does (or does not do) however I always get an uneasy feeling around her, almost negative. Unfortunately she has been dating one of my very good friends for a cpl years now. Me and her had a falling out mainly b/c she is JEALOUS OF ANY FEMALE that comes into contact with my friend Jim. As a result, I have avoided that whole scene and barely even see him anymore because I know she's always around :( I have known her for about 5 years now. It is possible I suppose that she did infact put some sort of spell on me although I don't know how that could explain the weird sleep/nightmare episodes since I've had them much longer than I have known her. Fast forward to several weeks ago-note: these episodes ALWAYS HAPPEN WHEN I AM ALONE IN THE HOUSE AND/OR BED.

Was sleeping (sometimes it feels like I'm lucid dreaming) and I feel this omnipotent dark force which is always accompanied by a feeling of dread and fear. Also note: these encounters have NEVER been sexual which perhaps could rule out the incubus theory but this one isolated instance it did seem sexual, although I can't be sure. It seemed to me that HE (always feels like a male entity) was pinning me to the bed again and attempting to force himself upon me. As usual, I could not move and felt paralyzed in my sleep. I KNEW I WAS ASLEEP and was just trying to 'wake up' as fast as I could (which I always do before he started to do what I thought he was going to. Eventually I managed to awake, scared stiff at what just happened. IF, it was a dream OR nightmare it sure seemed REAL. So fast forward to last night/early morning. Again, I'm alone in bed as usual when it occurs. This time was different. It wasn't just a cloaked figure or shadow person it was a CREATURE type male being, almost looked like an "Orc" from Lord of the Rings. It was a lengthy dream which I won't get into because I don't want to bombard you too much more and also b/c it seemed unrelated and really didn't make that much sense. Long story short, there was a woman standing in front of me (who actually looked like my old boss) and I thought she had given me a bad reference for a new job. She looked at me and said "It's not me, it's the Devil" and I felt this rush of anxiety and terror as I turned around to see Satan himself (or what I thought was Satan) standing before me, leering at me with an evil wicked grin. This monstrous thing lunged at me and I just kept running and trying to get away. All the while, mind you, I am desperately trying to WAKE UP in real life as I knew bad shit was going down. Again, I could not wake up. He or it grabbed me and kind of threw me against something, hard. I ran again as fast as I could run and eventually after a few more minutes was able to jolt myself awake. What is extra interesting about this is I felt incredible PAIN upon awakening and a heaviness in my chest. I felt dazed, weird and like I had actually just got my ass kicked. Also interesting to note, besides these instances I almost never have "nightmares" I usually have cool and fun dreams. I swear it's not just sleep paralysis anymore. It was real and tangible and the pain and tingling I had when I woke up was very strange.
sorry for the long rant, there is actually a couple more things that have happened but I will leave it at this for now. If you're interested I can show you something that I had been looking into which apparently is guaranteed to haunt you once you watch it. Ever since then (about 6-8 mos. ago) I have experienced more strange occurrences including something blowing in my ear and whispering. I know this all sounds crazy but I swear I'm not. My husband even feels the "ghostly" presence here, esp. the bedroom where it's always freezing.

Would you religious freaks stop blaming the occult. 'Occult' simply means 'hidden'. I agree that it has something to do with the spiritual realm but has nothing to do with religion. I've had these experiences many times, it has something to do with the approaching 2012. I believe these shadows to be reptilians from another dimension. I also think they are targeting people who might be 'threats'.

The real reason religion tries to keep you away from the occult is because they don't want you to find out the truth about this 'world' we live in. Religion is the true evil.

different
by: Craig

I was curious, during my episodes the demon/s or what have you, are never the same, typically are 'male' but when they are 'female' the attacks are when I'm awake and have been heard and felt by a friend who doesn't even have a religion...anyone else have different demon/s overtime with varying strengths and abilities?

BTW, these always happen when I'm getting spiritual strong as well. But not all blindly following, glazed eyes, born again extremist kind of way...intelligent religious research and praise.

To the person... jeezuz Anonymous
by: tiger girl

I respect that you are not religious but I don't appreciate the insult.Since you are not religious then I assume you rely more on science.You claim that occult practices can reveal truth and religion just hinders you from doing so. If you really believe that then I have a challenge for you. You obviously had enough time to be insulting so you should have no problem doing a kind of "scientific study".I challenge you to a month of various occult practices. Some things like the Ouija board,automatic writing, spells and etc...Engage in an an occult practice at least twice a week for a at least 30 min to and hour at time.Then at the end of the week write a comment on the site on your reaction and experience. If all you find is "truth" then you win but if not then you really would know the truth about the whole situation. Honestly if you don't take the challenge then you know on some level that your scared and occult is to blame for some(not all)REM paralysis.
P.S. let me know if you are going to take the challenge or not and if you do make sure this experiment last for one month and only a month.

OBEs
by: Kevin Morton

Barney, the new experiences you describe sound like out of body experiences, or OBEs as they're called. I don't have any personal experience with them but you'd be interested perhaps in some of Ryan Hurd's experiences with them. Ryan runs a website called Dream Studies and is author of one of the best books on sleep paralysis I've read (http://www.end-your-sleep-deprivation.com/sleep-paralysis-treatment.html). I actually just got the chance to have dinner with him the other night too. Here's the url of an excerpt from his book about OBEs:

Caution!!
by: Anonymous

To the person who was given the challenge to perform occult practices for a month by tiger girl, PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS! I understand what points you were both trying to make, but interacting with the occult is HIGHLY dangerous. It is not something to perform experiments with. The truth is out there if you seek for it, but be safe as you do. Please!

I started having this experience when I was in my first year varsity.
The first time I felt it I instinctively knew that it was an evil force and although I wasn't Christian at the time I wanted to call out the name of Jesus. It is the most terrifying experience, being totally wake and conscious yet not able to do anything and knowing that there is another presence in the room with me. It is so difficult to describe but sometimes feels as though something is pressing me down or feels as though my body gets numb and my spirit wants to leave me. I do not wish this experience on even my worst enemy.
Since I have submitted myself to Christ and growing in my faith I have experienced it more often, in January almost every night. I would be too afraid to fall asleep but even leaving the lights on does not help :)
Although I have consulted various specialists- neurologist, psychologist etc no one can help, only God. I was seeking answers because I was so desperate and thought there was something wrong with me.
I went on a fast and pray weekend this weekend and when returned last night I experienced it once again.
Although I don't always feel safe at night I have made a decision now that I won't be afraid. God will stand by His promise and He will not leave me. I thank Him for making me sensitive to the spiritual world and ask Him to use it to His advantage. These experiences has made me realise that the spiritual words is a reality and I now look forward to the eternal life with God. Fear will not rule my life and I choose to stand strong im my faith and in God. Jesus has authority over Satan when He died for us on the cross and as a child of God so do I because when I gave my life to him I inherited everything He has.
I believe in prayer and will keep on praying until I overcome this. I also pray for you. Submit to God and you soul and spirit will be safe.

Muchas Gracias por tu comentario y no lo dudes, tu inglés esta muy bien, aún que tiene alguna y otra error, se entiende bastante bien. Lo que es mas importante que la gramática es la emoción y el mensaje que tus palabras estan transmitiendo, yo también soy creyente en Cristo y creo que este parálisis esta causado a veces por los malos espíritus.

similar experience to what others are describing
by: Anonymous

let me start off by saying I have always been an outspoken atheist, detesting the hate fueled rhetoric of supposed religious theocracies, but this lingering experience I had has really been weighing in on my thoughts lately. It was about ten years ago, and I was going through a rough patch in my life. Like Barney, I was heavily into smoking marijuana and was hanging out with the wrong crowd. I was definitely leading down the wrong path, and if I had continued I would probably be dead, addicted to drugs, or in jail right now. The same people I was hanging with are all in those situations. That being said, this event has only happened once. Like Barney, I had just began to nod off, when I was suddenly struck with sleep paralysis. I could feel, and see a dark presence in the corner of my room watching me (which I could only describe as the devil), and a weight of some demonic force pressing down on my chest. As if I knew exactly what was happening, this demon was trying to enter my body, maybe to possess me through my chest. I tried to speak, but my lips were sealed shut. I began to panic, and I did the only thing I felt was instinctively right - I was able to force out three words from the corner of my mouth, 'Jesus, help me' and instantly, the pressure stopped, the force in the corner of my room disappeared, and a voice whispered in my right ear, "we haven't much time", and everything was over. In a panic-stricken frenzy, I grabbed a notepad and wrote down my experience. This was ten years ago. Since then, I have denied and tried to suppress these memories but they have recently began circulating in my mind again. This type of event has never happened before or since that night, but I will always remember it vividly. When searching on the net days after the event, I found numerous websites that dismissed my experienced as stress-induced hallucinations. Since then, I have been on the warpath voicing my misguided opinion against theocracy, but now I'm slowly beginning to feel different as I continue to age. I don't know what to do, what to feel, or what I'm supposed to take from this. I feel extremely embarrassed for how I've acted against god, and I hope it's not too late. I just needed to get this off my chest, with the hopes similar people who have the same experience can find our words and know they are not alone. What do I do now? Do I denounce my atheistic beliefs and join a church? The same churches that fuel hate and rhetoric against people they believe to be inferior, IE gay people, Muslims? I don't know. If anyone has any ideas or guidance please help. Thanks.

RE: similar experience to what others are describing
by: Barney

Hey, I enjoyed your openness and willingness to share these things. I relate a lot with you about the age thing, I just turned 30 and along with the out of the ordinary sleep experiences, it does drive me to spiritual self-examination.

I too have said Jesus help me without even thinking, as if it were a reflex. I have never had immediate results like others I've heard but I have heard of other out-right atheists and non-Christians saying "Jesus help me" too.

It's something meaningful that this experience is leading you on a search ten years later. I notice after a month or two with no sp episodes, I forget the deep emotions and fear but like I just had one last night, the feelings are fresh on my mind. Since I posted this story and video, I have had about a dozen episodes but they are different. It's more floating above myself, floating in circles, very strong rushes of tingling from head to toe that feels like an electrical current.

Also, I no longer have seen the entities but on some occasions have sensed them. As of late, the episodes I've had have been more like out of body sp experiences. I get out of bed and start to walk awkwardly around my house in the dark, there's like a magnetic pull and It's hard to stay balanced. Like last time, I have many "real life" experiences like interacting with people and my family. There comes a point where I want to wake up but I can't get out of it. I walk up only to realize my surroundings are the same but then realize it was a false walk up. Last night it was like trying to walk up four or five times before I really woke up.

With Jesus Christ on my side, I'm not so scared of the evil anymore because he is more powerful than anything in the universe. If it helps, I recently uploaded a video series about my spiritual journey after getting off drugs, it also explains my encounters with God and tragedy in a simple down to earth way. I hope you could find some inspiration from them. Well, hope to chat with you anytime, I use YouTube as my social network. My channel is www.YouTube.com/barnabusdonn

Thanks,
Barney

Hey similar experience to what others are describing!

Thanks for sharing it is good the you open your self in here. Your in the rigth please. Anyway,
I just want to share with you of what I think is right. I am a Catholich but I believe it doesn't matter if you don't beleive all religion, what matter is you have to beleive our GOD Jesus Christ deep inside your heart in mind.
If you don't know what to do, try this and this is what I did I'm like you before I hate religion even though I am a Catholict. But I found out to myself religion it doesn't matter to comit ourselv to our God. When you are alone try to relax and talk to our LORD JESUS CHRIST commit yourself to him and ask him God please forgive me all the mistake all my sins. Say what you want to say ask him to give you straigth. We cannot see or hear our God but he can hear us see us, but I beleive he will touch your soul he will come inside your heart you can feel him, that hes listening to you. He will guide you and help you if you will trust him and everything. GOD is good he save my life. And is not to late to have him now, but you have to do it now before is to late. I believe he will soon come and jugde us all. God is good but people are crazy...remember without our Jesus Christ our life is nothing, if we have him it felt like im already in heaven. I have him everyday If i feel sad or something I rely everything to him, and he is always there for me. I pray everyday I never knew how to pray before but since I learnt how because I ask our Lord for him. Use this to pray - SIGN OF THE CROSS

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit, Amen

Our Father our Father I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by
the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified


Then OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be
Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done,
on earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our
daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we
forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us
not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Then HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is
the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

GLORY BE

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.


Keep your Faith to our Lord Jesus Christ

My experiences... Part 1

I can partially relate to most of the experiences described here by everyone. I started my episodes when I was about 17 and have had countless of them. They finally stopped about 7 years ago. They lasted about 20 years, but now I've been freed of them.

I too would know when one was approching and would think, "Here we go again!". They would always seem to start within the first few minutes of falling asleep. I would feel some sort of force or sensation overcome me physically, paralizing my physical being, yet my mind was alert and I could always see around me. I could see the time change on the clock, (when young) I could see my sister turn in her bed, (after being married) I could see my husband breathing while he was sleeping, I could see. I would try so hard to scream for help so that someone would wake me. I would try so hard to move and will myself to awake but it was always such a struggle and so frightening not to have or be in control.

I too would float above my body or uncontrollably. Most of the time it felt as if there was a force that took control of of my spirit self and separated it from my physical self. I couldn't fight it no matter how hard I tried.

I have also seen the cloaked figures in my room on a couple of the occasions. The last time they seemed to be about 5 of them, standing in various areas around me, facing me. There was one closest to me by left side. He seemed to have a older male presence and not quite as evil as some of the others. They were all different heights as well varying by a few inches. I could never see the faces, they were overshadowed by the hoods of the cloaks. The one closest to me tried to tell me mentally, not verbally that I would be fine but there was something that they had to see or do. The communication was telepathic. You could just feel not hear the message that they were trying to get accross to you. Then I was somehow lifted by my ankle above my bed. I was suspended upside down and my mother came in the room and I awoke. She was trying to put some clothes away.
My mother has always been there and tried to help me through these.

Hey Viktor,
Thank you for telling it. Yes, as I mentioned in my video I have heard them speak, breath in my ear and growl. God has recently given me deep peace in this struggle.
I use YouTube as my way of staying in touch so feel free to watch my videos and talk further at www.YouTube.com/barnabusdonn.

Sleep Paralysis cloaked demonic figure
by: Ryan

Well I would like too say that I had have 2 of these experiences in my life i am 24. The first on was that I was awake in my bedroom and I felt like I was paralysed and that someone was holding me down. Ok the real wierd one happened last night I woke up in the middle of the night and could'nt sleep. I was sleeping on my left side and all rememebr thinking too myself saying too my friend how would you like if I had sex with my friends sister in front of him. My heart started racing and became very cold and I got the chills. After that all I could remember is turning on my right side and seeing this dark cloaked small entity staring at me right near my bed. My body froze after I put my fist up to the demon. Then I finally woke up being scared and not knowing what the hell happened. Yesterday, during the day I was talking about 2012 and when the world will end. Also, when you die you die and you there is no heaven or hell. I don't know why that happened maybe that sick thought I had in my head intrigued the demon. I also found out yesterday that one of my friends from highschool died. This was one of the wierdest things I have ever experienced. I wanted too know if anyone has ever experienced the same thing. Just write on the blog if you ever did..

Hey Ryan,
Thanks for writing, I relate 100%. I have seen the hooded figure " demon" before and have also experienced aspects of sleep paralysis that were very vividly sexually "dirty" and felt clearly evil in a sexual way. I know exactly what you're talking about...

After reading all of this site and listening to your video, i strongly suggest that you google what is called "spiritual deliverance". Bob larson is one who dares to walk in the name of Jesus against these powers of darkness. It is NOT about religion, but rather a true and intimate RELATIONSHIP with Jesus and God. When i realized it was the religious people of jesus' day that killed him it changed me altogether! Now, God shares things with me through the work of the Holy Spirit and His written Word. I have received deliverance and it has helped tremendously. I pray this helps all who read it and the power of God's love will lead you to know our Redeemer and the Lover of our souls.

its a real war!
by: Heather

I am so happy that I found this site!! I have had similar experiences. I am 26 years old and I have been having spiritual experiences such as these since I was 8. When I was 8 I saw a demon that was cream colored, bald,had wrinkled skinned,and red eyes. It tilted its head and then asked me if I wanted to play in a scary voice. I pinched myself as to wake myself from a nightmare but unfortunately I was awake (this is before I even knew about religion or demons or anything like this). Ever since then I have had dreams of shadowy figures (none with hoods though). Satan himself has visited me 3 times in these nightmares. One dream where shadowy figures were present I felt them coming into my body I simply would say I rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ and they would come out. when I managed to wake myself up(I was paralysed as well) my bed had moved off of the wall. It's frightening to experience these things. To this day I can feel evil presence around me. They scratch on my wall and make sounds that sound like water droplets in my room when there are no leaks. Moving on as far as the obe goes I have had several of those as well..all involuntary. I feel major pressure on my head and tingling also my bed shakes before my spirit tries to come out. Each time I have come out a bit but somehow I have stopped it from coming out. It has come out once in a lucid dream. It rapidly came out of my body (no tingling or pressure) where it started running then all of a sudden it floated fast towards the ceiling in which it jolted me awake. This experience was different than the previous because I knew I was dreaming and the others I was also asleep but it seemed more like a physical reality maybe because I was in my own house, and in this instance I was in a different location. Anyhow I can't rule out that these dreams, sp, and obes are connected somehow because everybody here is experiencing all of them and were all predominantly Christian. Maybe we are a threat and god is going to use us in special ways. Just keep him first and do his will. Stay in the word!

The scientific term for this is called hypnagogia. I did a little research into it and I'm still inclined to believe that these experiences are of a spiritual nature. Contrary to Michael (no offense Michael) when my faith is at its highest point (praying more, making better choices,reading the bible often, and telling people about Jesus) I have these fearful attacks more frequently. I encourage everybody to look into this scientific side and leave their take on it. I'm curious to know what yall think.

scared!!!
by: Vanessa

Hi there, I am so glad I found this site! I am terrified! I have been experiencing the feeling of being paralysed and pressed down! I have also sometimes seen the dark figure. It always starts with feeling the presence and it touching me on my arm or shoulder and then suddenly it gets on top of me and presses me down! I have had these experiences only a few times but last night was the worst! I felt the ussual pressure and suddenly this thing growled at me! Like some sort of beast dog or something! My friend says that it is oppression of a demonic entity and that opression can lead to possession. I need to know how to stop this thing! It is scaring me so badly I am afraid to go to sleep at night! Please help!

pray
by: Heather

Wow sorry you guys are going thru this stuff too. It is refreshing knowing that you are not alone. Atleast we have eachother to talk to about this phenomenon. The average person would think we are all nuts. To address what you were talking about summer.. I do not believe it has to do with your location. Maybe since there are more people and they are more openly sinning (it is called sin city you know) that you became more sensitive to spiritual activity. I don't know this for sure just guessing. Anyhow as far as the dead mobsters walking around that isn't possible. To be absent from the body is to be present with the lord. So these entities in which you are referring to are what the bible calls familiar spirits. They are demonic in nature. I agree with Barney we do need to pray for our protection and know everything is subject to the name of Jesus. He gave us authority over demons. We are his children!

I had an experience about a two months ago. I woke up and saw a black shsdow figure standing by my side of the bed. I couldnt move and I felt like something was on my legs and chest. I was trying my hardest to scream to wake my boyfriend up and I felt like my voice was just cutt off. I felt like i was being choked. It was by far the scariest experience Ive ever had.

SP
by: TW

I have had SP since around 8 years of age. I am now 55. I was taken to a church that believed in casting out demons and speaking in tounges. I have received Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour. My expreriences have dark figures,too. I had oout of body experiences with these SP's. I would see a parent going down the hall to the bathroom and get awakend by the noise of their door being shut. I also would float above our pool table in our basement and wouldn't be able to get down. This doesn't sound terrifying, but it was to an 8 year old. I still have SP and can tell when they are starting. Like other comments I've learned to ask for Jesus help and I wake up. I've also awakened to quickly and see the dark figure fade away. So much more I could tell. If interested, ask.

Shadowy creature
by: Bonita

Hi, ok so i have not experienced any of this sp, or out of body experiences. but i know it happens and it can happen as most of you have shared your story. For me the last 2 months i have been scared at night to sleep for the fear of what lurks in the dark. last night i dreamed i was asleep as normal beside my boyfriend, and then all of a sudden i saw a dark shadowy creature jump on me, and it didnt try to get inside my chest, instead it lunged straight for my throat trying to kill me. no sound or anything came from it. Like everyone else i couldnt move or speak, this is the first time it has happened to me and i am 21 years old. i am very freaked out, and seriously hoping it doesnt happen again. B4 bed i do pray and ask Jesus Christ to protect us keep evil away, and that he lets his blood was over us and through us and keep us safe.

Hello. I'm very realived to hear that someone else out there has experienced what I've been experiencing for years. I've experienced everything you've mentioned plus I've had the entity run after me after the sp. I haven't been able to see it it since I've been 6 or 7 yrs old. I would love to know how to stop it. I'm tired of the sleepless nigts. I can tell you for sure that the drugs do not initiate these experiences because I've had them all of my life. Please keep me posted if you have more info.

I Wouldn't Believe this 2 Months Ago but...
by: Anonymous

I few months ago I would not have believed this as I always thought that people who experience this are always "dredging up" some sort of hyper-vigilance and focus on "Evil Spirits" or something. Well it happened to me twice in the past month and I will agree that it is scary and unpleasant.

It's good to know that there's a name and explanation for this. Of course it is additionally troubling to me that the "spirit" feels so real and is a male spirit when I am female. And there is this feeling of evilness surrounding the entire experience.

Because I don't want this to happen again, I will try more to think pleasant, grateful thoughts before going to bed that "All is well." I'm relieved that this can be attributed to stress and some sort of temporary malfunction of the sleep cycle. If it does happen again I will relax about it, and not take it so personally.

Last night when it began happening as I started drifting off I said firmly "I don't like this" and it stopped. Take care everyone.

Sensitive in Connecticut
by: Anonymous

I have been searching for answers for the weird and ongoing experiences that I have been having since I was a child.

I had dreams of dead ppl who were killed in the late 1800's, for example, when I was pregnant with my second child, I had a dream of a woman hanging by her neck in a barn surrounded by to men who were also hanged. I wasn't scared in this dream, she jumped down and came up to me. She was dressed like a slave from this periods, her dress was periwinkle blue, and she had a head scarf on. She touched my belly, and I actually felt the warmth of her hand on my belly, and she said " This baby is not well". I woke up the next morning bleeding and I went to the E.R. where they performed and emergency Laproscopy because I had an ectopic pregnancy.

Recently, I had SP, and I saw a dark figure of a man standing on the right side of my bed, and a week after that I had a dream of a woman sitting on my couch trying to tell me something but I would not listen to her, and I began to pray, and I woke up.

I know I am sensitive to certain things, and I try not to scare myself or think about them, but when u have dreams that come true, like ppl dying and children being born, u begin to really speculate on how this universe really is.

I wish that I can analyze all of my experiences, at one point, I though the apartment or houses I lived in was haunted, but now, I'm starting to believe that its me who is haunted. I don't know how to control this and its irrtating me. I can't sleep because I see things move out the corner of my eye, but I refuse to acknowledge whatever is happening to me, so I just been ignoring them.

I always have dreams, and encounters with ppl who have past, like their energy, I never felt threatened, just bothered. I haven't heard voices, but I heard noises as if someone's in the kitchen early in the morning closing cabinets. I just want to be left alone and I feel that I have no one to talk to, to just get a better understanding of what's happening to me.
I do believe in the "other" side whatever it might me, my experiences have proven that to me a long time ago, I can also see a little of ppl's aura's.

Well, I just wanted to relate my expriences, oh, there was another weird one I had about 10 yrs ago, I had a dream about a Indian High Priest and he told me my future for the next 5yrs. I couldn't remember everything, but about me getting pregnant when my son turned 5 came true, and that's all that I remembered.

Although I can stop the attack by using the authority of Jesus Christ I still was experiencing sp episodes nonetheless. I often wondered why I was still under attack even though I am a believer and not using his name as just "magic words". I came across a site called stopsleepparalysis.org. This website had a short video that was very informative and insightful in which it conveyed that this phenomenon can be caused by a generational curse. With that being said I prayed to the father to shut all of the doors my ancestor have opened and I haven't had another one since.

Dark entities
by: DreamPro

I will make no suppositions as to what this all was or meant, but one night I "thought" I woke up in a room that wasn't mine. There was a minor breeze flowing throw an open window that gave me a bit of a chill. So I proceeded to get up to close the window, but I froze once my eyes began to adjust to the low light. For lack of a better description my bed was surrounded by a bunch of small entities. Expressionless, and featureless the closest thing I can think to describe them was about 8-12 Eggplant-looking people. They said nothing, and did nothing to me, but they were moving with a weird vibration. They were all roughly the height of my bed off of the ground. They seemed to be crowded at the edges of my bed like a rock concert. At this point I was in full alarm, feral fight or flight kicked it and I woke up! Your thoughts?

by: Anonymous

This has happened to me so many times i cant count, it used to be a shadow figure, sometimes you cant even see that but she just holds you down, i say she because i watched this shadow figure turn into a woman more then once. but even know it does this, it leaves bits and pieces out they dont understand the human body. sometimes i can taste sometime i can even feel her skin well in that form. This isnt the only one that has visited me there were others that stayed shadow figure like and tryed choking me to death. over the years i have learned that nothing is pulling my soul out of my body i have been doing it on my own.I have had every sp expereince you can think of some scary some beautiful like being with a past lover clear as day, waking up not knowing how i felt for her and who she is but remembering i felt it. Anyway lets get down to it, Monks practice what happens to us in our sleep, they do what we know with control and they master it. We do it with out control because our body is dying or weak when we go to sleep our blood pumps slower, if were weak enough our blood pumps so slow our heart can stop. I know this because when it happens to me i feel a strange preasure in the part of my body the cancer builds. My suggestion to all of you. best think is to go to the doctor and find out what its wrong with your host because there is the spiritual world and there are angels and demons and we all have seen them and that doesnt happen with out a reason.

SP
by: Mari

Thanks for for this site and thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences here. Personally, I believe in God but my faith certainly wavered throught the years, and it's something I'm struggling with right now. My first experiences occurred in my early 20's, I had anxiety, bouts of depression and drank too much alcohol. It would begin with my being able to see the room with clarity, I could hear the voices of my loved ones, the tv being on, but I felt like I was in another dimension. At times I could travel down the hall, see the furniture, again I could hear everyone speaking, yet could not see anyone. I could see out the window, it appeared that everything was the same, except no people, animals or signs of life. However, an extremely menacing, evil presence was felt, as if something was watching me, quite frightening. Of course I couldn't move and it was as if my lips were glued shut. After that the 'shadow' man would come, that was my name for it. A tall evil presence that would always get on top of me, strangling me, in one incidence violating me. I'd often feeling his hands around my throat or compressing my chest, as if wanting to squeeze the life out of me and perhaps silencing me from any thought of God. I tried to call out to my then boyfriend, although I gathered he couldn't hear me. The figure was a black, male, the dimensions were of person yet no distinct physical features, more like an outline. It's difficult to put it all into words. I felt that I would die if I didn't wake up. I asked my boyfriend to not allow me to nap during the day as the 'shadow' man would come to torment me, if he didn't just being in the room I slept in again it felt extremely menacing, and being watched..Of course my partner didn't believe me and made reference to the Freddy movies because I begged him wake me if I fell asleep during the day. Through it all, I geared to thinking that these experiences are some sort of sleep disorder, as perplexing as it was, afterall there must be some logical explanation. Later as the internet surfaced, I decided to research it and I was glad to have hit the nail on the head, finding it, 'sleep paralysis'. The scientific explanations gave me comfort, I was relieved, and recalled having the episodes when mostly being very tired, stressed.. But was astonished how so many people around the world have so many of the same so called 'hallucinations'? Forwarding over 20 years, my last experience was about 2 years ago, again under duress I'm 43 now. I've recently began to try to renew my faith and read the bible and things would just jump out at me. I always felt an inner peace when I was troubled, as if God was lifting me up in those times of anguish, but I didn't and still don't feel worthy, which is another story. Anyhow, since reading the bible again and trying to renew my faith, I reconfirmed how the doctrine teaches to search His word to see if it is so.

Con't
by: Mari

Here are a few verses that my husband brought to my attention. It had me wondering even further regarding visions/dreams from a biblical standpoint.

Job chapter 4
4:14 Fear came on me, and trembling, Which made all my bones shake.

4:15 Then a spirit passed before my face; The hair of my flesh stood up.

4:16 It stood still, but I couldn't discern the appearance of it; A form was before my eyes. Silence, then I heard a voice, saying,


Job Chapter 7: The Depths of Job’s Depression
Job was asking, “Why, why, why?” In later chapters, he said that he had previously tried to serve God with all his heart, mind, soul, and strength. He revealed intimate thoughts that were very unusual, showing his personal dedication to God. In his anguish, he was saying, “I served you wholeheartedly of my own volition in the past, when I was healthy and the sun was shining on me. Do I now need the trauma that I am going through when I tried to do my very best previously?” Job wanted an answer. Eventually the Lord did give him an answer, as will be seen in later chapters.

Job 7:13 When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint;
Job 7:14 Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions:
Job thought that when he went to bed, he would get rest and relief from the discomfiture and heat of the day and perhaps also some improvement in his health, but instead he had nightmares. Of course Job did not know that Satan was causing the bad dreams.
Job 7:15 So that my soul chooseth strangling, and death rather than my life.
The nightmares were so real and so frightening that Job was depressed and wanted to die. Satan conjured up terrifying dreams in his attempts to break Job down.

Shadow planes
by: Scott

It really feels like you enter another realm of reality, however only your spirirtual self may gain entry. Not sure what's going on there, but I think it's more than simple hallucinations. You have to try and fight off the shadowy figures through empowerment or whatever religious convictions you may have. Lose your fear and explore. I've been trying for years but still can't shake the shadow figures. Not sure what they want to do or what they are tryng to tell me. People talk about other planes of existence, perhaps some more peaceful but I have yet to "wake up" in one.

focus
by: Will power

I know these situations can be scary and sometimes overwhelming. One thing that works for me is not to try not give into the fear that comes with these experiences. The more afraid you become the the stronger these shadows/entities get. They almost feed off that negative emotion. When you are in this state of sleep paralysis you can be in touch with something called your higher self. Which in essence is your spiritual body un-programmed by the mind or experiences in day to day life. It sounds strange but you can actually give yourself a command and your higher self will help you. I know thought of giving yourself a command can seem like a waste of time but try it. Also instead of being afraid think of something that fills yourself with the feeling of love and imagine that image this will make the experience end or they will leave.... Now one thing that will help all of this is how much will power you possess. One way easy way to gain will power is to do the things you know you should take care of even if they are hard and you don't feel like doing them. I know that can be a very broad range of things here is an example. Cleaning your house, running, telling somebody something that you have been meaning to say but don't want go through emotions, basic day to day tasks and doing them right when you feel you should take care of them not realizing that they need to be taken care of and thinking I will get to them later. Try doing this for a week every day all day and when you experience this again when you go to sleep use your will power to make them leave, access your higher self, and not let fear over take you. The reasons that sometimes these things can not be achieved is because we don't possess the will to do so, we don't have control over our mind/body. I hope some of this has helped someone. Good luck and remember there is a higher power everywhere at work that will help us if we ask. Persistent prayer is the easiest solution.

evil spirit
by: Anonymous

I started having sleep paralysis at age of 12 to 27. Thought my eyes would be open and my mind conscious, it felt as if an entity had been holding me down. It scared the crap out of me and I would sleep with my mom. I will never forget and do believe it was some evil spirit!

RE: Clarissa
by: Barney

Hi Clarisa,
I've had this exact experience many times where I felt the demon trying to enter me. I also have opened doors to the occult and through drugs. I had to get serious with God and get his help to close the open doors of access that these spirits had in my life. The most powerful defense is the name of Jesus Christ. We can pray directly to our Father God through the name of Jesus.

Thanks for writing,
Barney

I have had the same paralysis 4 times. Your body is paralyzed but not your mind pray to Jesus and you will win against the evil forces.

God allows this to happen for you so you can engage in a spiritual warfare of prayer.

HELP!! :/
by: Anthony

I'm 30 years old, a born again Christian and I've been experiencing the worst things with SP (which always happens around 3:30AM) since I was 16: scratches on my body, sexual assaulted, levitation, hear evil voices, see dark shadows of human, animals defecating on me. I experience this almost every night.

My house in waking life has been afflicted: cold spots, objects moved or balanced, footsteps, banging noises, feeling of being watched, my bed creaks as if being sat on, scratches suddenly appeared on the wall, odd smells, oppressive feeling. Please help me!! Christians I speak with just tell me to call out the name of Jesus and I do, but it's not fixing the issue. I've been told that people can sense a "dark presence" with me, but I never knowingly invited anything in my life. I never tried anything of the occult or witchcraft. I can sense it too and whatever it is, it follows me.

Is there a group of Christians that specialize in helping oppressed Christians that are menacing with a resistant demonic host?? Please..

Its the only way, just try your hardest to have faith
by: Believer who has experienced all of what you have before and never will again

Pray and ask Jesus for deliverance from all of the evil influences in your life, not just the shadows, oppression or what have you. THAT MEANS SEXUALLY IMMORAL BEHAVIORS, SINGING AND DANCING ALONG TO SATAN MUSIC! THAT MEANS WATCHING AND PAYING FOR MOVIES SATAN HELPED CREATE INSTEAD OF GIVING TITHE TO A GOOD CAUSE! Im not saying live under a rock but for God sakes live your live to the fullest for him and when its your time to die you will then truly know what true happiness is. Drugs and sex or money will never make you as fufilled with joy as living in the kingdom of God will! Pray and ask his son Jesus, who he created after his own spirit, to revive you and help guide you in the path to Heaven. God Bless Everyone!

Demons unseen
by: Janelle

I've had SP since I was a teen but it used to only happen every 2 or 3 years. I've never seen a demon or shadow but always was frightened as if something was there. One time,while looking around the room in sp, i saw a big cloud moving around the room and i watched as it moved into the room next to me. c'mon, a cloud is not scary so I'm not sure why I was so full of fear. I've always started praying during it so that I could wake up but I'm sorry, that does not work for me. I tend to find myself yelling at my husband to wake me up but of course the words don't actually come out, no matter how loud I think I am screaming. Sometimes, I try to force my hand to hit my husband in bed. I figure, if somehow my hand works, he will wake up and yell at me. Once I actually got a scream to wake me up. The worst thing for me is something is trying to suffocate me. I don't know who it is but I know they will eventually win. I can't fight this entity forever. Lately I've been trying really hard and I think I'm losing. I have a harder time waking up in order to get air. He or them are targeting us for a reason. I've always been spiritual in a christian sense but haven't lived up to what a christian should be in the sense that I don't attend church all of the time. However, from childhood til today, I've felt a bigger connection with God than I think others probably feel. I've also never done drugs and don't drink. Have you ever read from the bible and then had a bad nightmare or sp directly after? I totally believe that Satan is trying to keep us in fear and break any connections of us having a relationship with GOD. When I first started going to church I would have the scariest dreams. Please pray for me that I can continue to fight this thing off and I will for you.

My experiences and how I stopped it (part1)
by: K


Seen this weeks ago but was undecided if i should post my experiences up. My experiences arent something I like to talk about. In the end I thought the right thing to do would be to share this.
MY EXPERIENCES
I had SP afew times when I was 17. I only started having horrible experiences when I was 20. The first of these was similar to one of the experiences Barney wrote about. Seen a bright light shining threw my window, and seen a figure that was like a 'typical alien'. (I only had the alien like experience once, all my others have been more of an evil presence)
I could see its arm stretched above me. I couldn't move at all, and just kept trying to get out of it. I felt i was getting closer to being able to shake myself but felt like my room went slightly blurry then completely blacked out.
I was terrified after this and spent the rest of the night in the living room, to scared to try to sleep.

This became the regular thing for me to do after my bad nights. I would spend a couple of nights sleeping on the sofa with the lights on, after my bad experiences. That was the only way I could deal with it at the time.

I never had a similar experience to the above again. The rest of my experiences felt very dark. I wouldn't see any figures though. They would always come from behind.
Here are some of them:
One night, i woke up and heard something speak in my ear, behind me. I was lying on my right hand side it was clear and in a male voice. It was almost a whisper. I can't remember what it said, but it didn't say anything sick, it seemed to be linked to the thoughts I had in my head at the time. Was something like "But that never happened". I felt completely constrained as if I had been tied up and felt it shaking me side to side. And could hear a loud, high pitched, creepy laugh. It would laugh and shake me for a few minutes and stop. As soon as i opened my eyes again and try to move my leg, the laughing and shaking would start again.
After that experience I felt hopeless and gave up. I felt there was no point even trying to fight against it anymore, because it didn't work. I would say in my head "Please stop this! Why God is this happening to me?!" and I could feel my tear running down my cheek.
Here is another night that really messed with my head. I was lying in bed on my right hand side again, along the right edge of the bed. I felt like I was still awake, with my eyes shut. Then I felt a bounce and heard squeaking noises coming from the bottom left corner of my bed as if someone was on it. The fear just hit me as I realized I was going to have yet another horrible night. I opened my eyes and slightly moved my foot to try and dash out. But then I heard a terrifying growl. To scared to move, I didn't even try to get out. I felt it wrapped around me as if I was tied up again. I would just cry and give up. I would try to speak and shout for help but i was lucky to get a slight squeak out before my voice was cut off.

My experiences and how I stopped it (part2)
by: K

Majority of my bad nights are similar to the last 2 I've described. It would happen when I'm alone, around the same time of night (3:20am-4:20am), I wouldn't see what it was since it came from behind me, it would always happen in my bedroom.
I only had one other night that was different from my typical bad night. I was away to another city with my mum. We stayed in her friends house and I woke up, with a man standing, staring at me, in the left corner of the room. It was horrible but didn't feel evil like my usual experiences. It felt like I wasn't welcome. I couldn't move at first, then just rolled out the bed and ran out feeling dizzy. I've never slept in that room again.


STOPPING IT

As I said before, my experiences aren't something I've ever wanted to share. Even writing it on here I'm finding difficult. I'm on no medication, never touched drugs, I do drink alcohol but not often. It was always too real, I felt there is no reason why I could be having hallucinations so made me wonder if I was actually becoming crazy.

My mum would constantly push me to tell her what my problems during the night are. I talked about it gradually, but was really hard as I would just get so emotional about it.

We found out that someone we know has a friend (Elaine) who does psychic readings etc. My mum asked her if she could get in touch with Elaine as I've been after a reading for awhile (we didn't tell her about my horrible nights). My mum knew little pieces about it but not everything. No one else knew anything, it's something I've kept private. The woman i know got in touch, and Elaine gave her information about me she could never know. She said I needed her help, said about my experiences, said I had an experience while away, where it was etc, family problems, described me physically and personality to a Tee. The mutual friend had told her that some stuff she said was completely wrong. None of it was, it was just things me or mum hadn't told her about.

I was brought up Catholic, but I don't follow it. I believe in God and Jesus, but all my friends and family have mixed beliefs. So i just think that if you are a good person that's the important thing. I'd consider myself open minded but I'm sceptical and need proof a lot of the time. Psychics etc i think there are some who do have gifts but there are many who pretend. Don't believe it's evil either so my information might be something you wouldn't want to try. Fair enough.

I seen this woman, and she has helped me so much. She does Reiki; crystal ball readings and I think she is into Wicca too.

tired and scared.
by: Nikki

I haven't ever seen anything when i have SP. I do believe a lot of times it is astral projection or out of body experience. I have it almost all the time now (except when i was pregnant). Twice I felt the rushing through my ears when i felt something grab me by my ankle and drag me around the room. i could feel the carpet under my fingertips or the clothes that were on the floor. Does anyone know how to stop it? I try so hard to keep from experiencing it. Its not something i like going through (im sure yall arnt either).

Is there a demon living in me?
by: Anonymous

The black shadow entered my body through my chest. It was a long tail like skinny black shadow it was swinging from side to side while it was still connected to my chest. It was making waves in the air as it swung and made a distinct sound. It soon became shorter and shorter the my chest sucked it right in it sounded like a vacum sucking in air then it entered my chest and i woke up. Science says the black shadows we see are part of our brain wanting to dream. I do not know what to belive i just hope a demon is not inside me.

Amazing
by: Gasheero

This is amazing I have been having this experience since I was Seven yrs old or even earlier. I have been slapped, choked and beaten by these dark forces and I even have scars of frightful events. These events happens on and off and I have even traveled far in my dreams and wake up tired and aching. I reached a place where I let them do what they wanted like slap me, then I would just turn and go to sleep, even though I was sleeping. Then I reached a stage where as my relationship with Jesus Christ grew and I began to fight with them and with Christ I always won and the shadows would walk away talking about how strong I was, but I never fought without Christ's name on my tongue or in my mind. Then I reached a place where I sensed their presence and as the bible says "resist the devil and he will flee" I would just resist them. These Dark forces have appeared to me in all shapes and sizes...it's actually funny. I once had a dream I was being chased by a lion and it scratched me and when I woke I had that exact scar on my inner thigh, just where the lion had injured me in the dream. The bible says "the devil is a prowling lion searching for someone to devour". I also noticed the devil will only use your perception of what you think he is.

Amazing2
by: Gasheero

Just like oxygen does not need us to believe it exists for it to exist....the same goes for the spiritual world it does not need our belief to exist. The devil does not need us to believe for him to bug us or disturb our sleep...he will whether you invite him or not. The spiritual world is involved in a battle and the devil does not fight fair, look at how some of us started having these episodes at such a young age. I am glad that Jesus Christ saved and I urge everyone having this problem to TRY JESUS CHRIST...even if the attacks don't stop CHRIST has a way of HELPING you with it. My life is so much stronger from the SP ATTACKS. I had another such attack last night and i just googled my experience needing to know whether there were poeple who experienced this and WOW I amazed that there are people. I never ever thought I was a freak, I actually thought I was special having such a world revealed to me. I pray that God will continue use this site to encourage many who are suffering. And to all the atheists out there don't fight something that you believe doesn't exist just let go...if it doesn't exist then it should not bother you at all....but if it does then you have so much to lose! JESUS CHRIST REIGNS ABOVE ALL THINGS AND THE DARK SHADOWS ARE DEFEATED IN JESUS NAME!

Email me your opinion please
by: Chickbreezie@gmail.com

Idk what to call it but I experienced it kind of similar but still different from all of u I felt held down but I didnt feel an actual presence holding me down I just couldnt move speak or breath. It happened to me 4 times twice in my child hood and twice at the age of 22. The third time was in june 2010 after my girlfriend got locked up and that was the first time it felt like a presence in the room. It felt like she was standing over me but I knew she wasn't and because of that feeling I was able to break free from whatever was holding me down. The most recent time was this month on monday 19, I was on my way to sleep but not quite there yet and same thing happened only with out the presence and felt a little more aggressive this time and if I did not fight it I think I would have died. Every time it happens it feels like im being welcomed and that I'm just dozing off but at the same time it feels like death please if u have any comments please gmail me chickbreezie@gmail.com

strang happenings cont.
by:

i would also like to add that i too have have one false wake up and as a child had an imaginary friend. i am a teacher of science and so i do see that my experiences could be dreams continuing after waking up or an over active imagination as a child. But what i cant explain is why at 6 i would imagine a horned figure, they are in no childrens stories i have ever read???

by: @kayla

kayla have you ever heard of the book of revelation?... if you didnt..in the book there was to be an antichrist. the antichrist cliamed to be the new messiah(saviour). It said he will try to recruit a new ARMY for the second coming of jesus. SO whenever this apparition shows again. tell it that it is not welcome and to go away. i am not tying to freak you out. its just what i belive .

Deliverance from these Demonic Entities
by: Prince Israel

For all of those going through this first and foremost seek JESUS! When having these episodes call on JESUS. HE is a very present help when you need HIM. Wen I used to have these attacks I try to remain calm and ask JESUS to help me. Another thing I do is Plead The BLOOD of JESUS. I just say "THE BLOOD" Instantaneously the oppressive spirit leaves. demons fear the NAME of JESUS and HIS BLOOD and all of them are subject to HIS name and must obey. evil spirits can not cross THE BLOOD Line. For all my Born Again Christians take Communion in your house or place where there is demonic activity also Anoint ur house doorways,bedpost,and wherever else u feel comfortable. I know u may think but I'm not a pastor to receive COMMUNION. Truth is once in CHRIST we are all KINGS and PRIESTS. Revelations 1:6 KJV And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. A'-men. JESUS is ALL that we need from here to Eternity. Those without CHRIST I'm not telling you what to do but just give HIM a chance and open your hearts to HIM. He Loves you and has your best interest at heart. He's not like how religious people portray HIM to be angry and out to get you. But full of LOVE,MERCY,and GRACE. There's a great difference in being religious and having a personal relationship with CHRIST!

mine started at age 6 or 7
by: gypsy guy

Wow, im still shocked that im not the only one going thru this, or that other non gypsies are also experiencing these exact same accurances.

I was warned of evil spirits at a very young age by my parents, its a roma (gypsy) culture thing. not to eat in bed before you go to sleep cuz u will have nightmares. if you feel an evil spirit in your room cover the mirrors at night. and when you dream of a loved one that has been deseased calling you somewhere where in your dreams, means that death can be near for you and you must be very careful.
i thought sp began from all of this shit with my parents telling me, but you people go thru the exact same thing my GOD! it hapened so much that im comfortable with it now, but what works for me is a short juses prayer, and a few minutes time, then a quick jerk of movement of the body!!!
I wonder is this something spiritual????? is it really som evil beings trying to harm us, communicate?? tell us something???

SP
by: Barbara

Thank you for your informative video. I have experienced SP for many years. It began after the birth of my first child. I find the episodes occur when my days are less active and during times of stress, and have been less frequent the older I get. I can relate to almost everything that you have said. However I don't see the entities I feel them.

Last night I had the sensation of a dark energy merging with me ( in the chest area). Hence my internet search! It was physically painful, fortunately through focused intention I was able to steer it towards the light. It was terrifying and today I feel exhausted.

There is no doubt that there is a physical- spiritual link. These episodes usually occur during change or stress periods in my life. There is no doubt ( even in my rational lawyer mind) that these energies are real.

When I am disciplined about my spiritual practice ( meditation, yoga) these episodes do not occur. For me the answer is healthy body, healthy mind, healthy spirit! This episode last night has forced me to remember that!

I lightly experimented with drugs as a teenager - but don't feel that there is any connection.

Thanks again for the informative blog.

Re: obe
by: Barney

Very interesting post Ryan...no, we're not crazy...it is a breath of fresh air to know so many go through the same things. I know that drunk feeling as I have had many obe experiences mixed in with sp experiences.

It felt so strange to walk around my house ...it was hard to walk and stay standing...also it felt so weird as if It's not supposed to happen.

Keep the faith bro,
I have sort of learned that this is a never-ending subject,
Barney

P.S. Thanks also to the many responses on here...best way to reach me is on my YouTube page as I'm not on here much.

Amazing! Also terrifying...
by: Dot Humps

This is so great to hear. However, I'm a little freaked out because a lot of these stories are hitting a little too close to home. About six months ago I had the most terrifying sp experience to date. It was morning and I thought I was awake. But there was the typical "humming" sound and pressure in my head (this is the usual deal for my sp episodes). I was lying on my side staring at the door to my bedroom. The door slowly opened and a man in a red hooded cloak began slowly creeping in. He had a maniacal smile and was absolutely horrific. I broke out of the sp and rolled over to wake up my wife, she was still asleep and I thought it better to not wake her since it was still early sunrise. When I rolled over the man in the red cloak was STILL THERE! Only now he was a step closer. I had been tricked, I only thought I was awake. I broke out of it again and this time decided to wake up my wife. She sat up in bed, but it was then that I realized that I couldn't fully open my eyes or speak, I was still in the sleep paralysis. When I rolled over the man in the red cloak was right IN MY FACE! I yelled out and moved all my muscles at once, like a convulsion. And there I was, covers pulled up tightly to my chin, door closed. I looked next to me and there was no one in bed. My wife had gotten up hours ago. What the heck happens? I've heard a lot of people talking about seeing a hooded figure and find that fact a little disconcerting. I still haven't told my wife this story, I don't think she'd like. Peace!!

Running the gambit!
by: Mastino Templar

I have experienced this many times! I am actually currently fighting these things at the moment! My whole life actually I felt that I could astro project(at the time not knowing what it is called)out of my body, which as a child I have done this many times and as an adult it I believed has been lost to me or I have over looked it several times but know have become more consciously of my abilities to do this. I have my whole life encountered these demonic beings, I think I even at one point have gone to hell or some place like it as a kid nad had to fight to get out of it and killed 4 demonic beings. Now I know all this sounds crazy but trust me, I've never done drugs, I hold a Top Secret Clearance and I've guarded some of the most important people in the world and important government sites so I am a very normal person, I just have this crazy ability. To be honest, our whole family has this ability, it is as if we had it pasted down to us. I just bring this up because at 4am as my alarm clock was going off I slightly open my eyes and saw a dark figure looming over me, I knew what this was and I attempted kick it in the face from a laying position as I did this, the thing reached down at me and touched my lip....has this happen to any of you? This isn't the first time these beings have touched me in my sleep, but this is the first time I've talked about this publicly??? How do I keep them out of my room while I sleep????

Ender Men
by: Anonymous

oh god, these things are living hell. i've seen them in the distance when i was with people... until i'm alone. one appeared across the road from me and we stared at each other, unmoving. then i blinked and i felt VERY weak and dragged home. when you see them whatever you do, dont look at the eyes. if you know too much or have too much *joy/success/ect* then they watch you. if they come to you, run. just run. run for your life because they're everywhere, they just are *invisible* to those with low IQ or those who arent psychicly active. they follow you and if you see them get closer, stop what your doing and make observations.

Sleep Paralysis
by: SBS

This has happened to me since I was a child, haven't had it happen much lately. Was most experienced when I started interceding for my brother, a sinner at the time. Was so terrible I ended up sleeping in my walk in closet, which I had called my "prayer closet." I believe they are tormenting spirits who seek to deprive you of sleep. What I ended up doing was praying in the spirit and finally the sp would go away. Once I felt it coming in my son's room when he had been sick, I immediately laid my hand on my son and pleaded the "Blood of Jesus" After that I could literally see that spirit walking out of the room it was very tall, shadowy, and head was up to the ceiling with feet about 18 inches off the floor.

First of all this is supposed to be a sleep paraylis site, which from reading it thourougly, it is unlikly! Besides the phyc comments,drug comments & scarce biblical comments. What your dealing wh is members of babylonian believers seting you up. So I wouln"t surface this page if I were you. & many of the stories are affects of bablon believers. Which is not all supernatural & can be verfied biblically,secularly,scientifically, & yes some medicaly.speaking to the rigt peope,etc. Yet I"d caution who you speak to. Many of these stories set people up forphyc cases,attacks of the church& trouble wh some medical& police authorities. Sorry if some words are mispelled I am on a cell. Anyhow , I would first get off this site, know that supernatural is a nice show yet not real. Go pray, get the bible out & search for all passages pertaing to, babylon! You ca find them in th index, cordinance or just look up babylon biblically & you"l find the right passages!

Lucid
by: Anonymous

I am 19 years old. I had my first sp experience last night. I have been practicing lucid dreaming for a couple months now and sense I have started, I seem to sleep lighter. My dreams are much more real, rather than odd and fantasy based.

So in my dream, I was at my sisters old house. Only it seemed broken down, like it was going to be condemned, rather than the bright clean place it used to be. I was in a bedroom, but I heard a very evil sounding voice yelling in the kitchen, about somebody not eating their dinner. I don't know why, but I felt like the voice had this connotation that the dinner was poisoned. Naturally, in my dream of course, I started to yell at who ever was in the kitchen.

As soon as I opened my mouth a dark figure rushed up right into my face. I couldn't make out any facial features, but I could just see this dark figure right in front of my face. It had a very heavy and angry vibe to it, it seemed evil. I put my arms up to push it out of my face and it folded my arms across my chest and I was suddenly in my own bed in my own room.

I couldn't move. Just stuck there with my arms folded across my chest and a pressure pushing down on me. All the while this dark figure sat just inches from my face, breathing heavily. I couldn't see its eyes, but it seemed to be just glaring at me. It stayed like that for a few seconds and suddenly, like I snapped out of it, it was gone. I was just in my bed with my arms folded across my chest.

I wasn't so much afraid, but angry that this being was so hostile toward myself and my family. I don't think it was an actual demon. I think I was in a very light sleep, like still awake a little bit, and entered an r.e.m. dream state. It felt more like a conscious, waking life, nightmare more than anything.

If it was a real demon, I choose not to give any power to it. My bed is a place of sanctuary for me. Where I rest, relax, make love, and break down sorrows of life. Haha and it is far too comfy to share with any demon.

weird
by: jazmyne

ok. so im 17 years old and this has been happening to me since i can remember. the most recent one happened this morning at 7:59 a.m. i had just fallen asleep and then i felt it happening. my body became paralyzed and i couldnt move at all. i looked around and i saw a black shadow walking towards me. i could feel a extreme heat coming off its body as it got closer. i then began to call for Jesus(as my mom and grandma told me to) however it didnt work and the shadow got closer until it was standing above me and watching me. it then began to speak in a dark raspy voice and it slowly leaned down and kissed me on the forehead. and i could actually feel it kiss my head. it felt hot in the spot where it kissed me. and right now it is exactly 1:27 a.m. and i am scared to go to sleep. i can still feel the heat on my forehead from where the shadow kissed me. i dont know what to do. i think that im going to try and get some sleeping pills 2moro... if anyone knows of a way to stop this from happening plz let me know because i feel like i am losing my mind.. i just want to have a peaceful night of sleep.

2nd visit
by: r1burlie

Good Day. I had an experience last night and had to find your blog. 9 years ago my wife and I were expecting our first baby. After our baby was born, we were not getting a lot of sleep (as new parents usually do) she decided to sleep in the front living room to allow me to sleep so I could get up for work.

She said that she woke up in the middle of the night and there was a dark “cloud like object” somewhat in the form of a human, but cloudy. It was hovering over her. She could not scream, and her body was immobilized. She tried to scream for me but could not. After what seemed like a few min, it was gone.

Last night, on Sunday October 16th, 2011, I was sleeping in our bedroom not far from the front room. I went to bed early as I had to get up early for work. We have a hall light on so that the kids can find their way to the bathroom if they need to. So it’s dimly lit, but you can see the ceiling and wallpaper patterns in our bedroom if you need to.

At approx. 12:30am I started coming out of a disturbing dream. I opened my eyes and there was black, shadow on the ceiling. It was not “cloudy” or had soft edges. It was large, and had very sharp edges, (best way would be to describe it as a shape of a human, but it had jagged edges, like if you were to cut out a pattern with those pattern edged scissors ) or one of those speech bubbles comic books have, that look all zig lines

I could not move. But for some reason I was not scared. I was mad. I was mad that whatever was there was holding me against my will.

I actually said “f you! let me the f go!” and the second I could move my hands I raised both of them and give it the finger.

I’m not saying this to be cool or brave. I am actually pretty freaked out today. I was just mad at it because I am protective of my family, and I do not want it bothering me or my family. Especially my wife or kids.

After reading more this morning about shadow people, imp worried that it is a negative energy, and if I swore at it and told it to f off, I may not have done myself any favours.

Any suggestions? Please?

ladie in black dress
by: RRD

Upon having these I seem to catapulted into another realm of two of these occasions I am in a place of confusion and fear, their is another women their in a black dress she does not seem to be of this realm we are in, and just as confused as me. These experiences have happened more then twice but I have only seen this women 2 times on one occasion we seem to be standing in a street or infront of a structure, she is nervous and seems we both know we are not in the physical, their are creatures that are there but mainly I could see these large dark creatures very tall in hieght and dark they do not speak and stand guard, this is the best i can explainI they seem to be on guard. But anyway I have come to believe that this women is in fact at the same moment in time journeyed to this realm and we have somehow met up. She does ask me are we in hell, as I had said we are in very aware and realize we are off somewhere and not in our bodies, very conscious of the situation. I hope by writing this brief story mate this women can Identify this, or maybe I am just crazy.

Wide-brimmed black hat, black duster/trench coat
by: Savage

Astral Projection. Children do it naturally. the tall shadow like coroner guy is the snatcher of the young but the beast behind the red that stands apart from the berserk vultures in the dark twilight realm. In the red, is the flesh; the tar to bind the light and deceive. They are the makers of the sad an unhappy,,, they are the haters of heaven in hell.

Interaction with Shadow Beings
by: Iniquitous

Wow. I have had these same kinds of things happen to me. I find the commonality of these shadowy figures to be the most compelling evidence that this experience is an "out of body" conscious, astral, or spiritual type of experience. To me the sensation is one of vibrating. Often times I can consciously control my awareness when it starts and I have even been able to consciously initiate it on my own. I've had it happen dozens of times but only experienced the shadow figures one time. They looked exactly as described by others. There were three of them - one seemed larger than the other two. The two smaller ones grabbed onto my ankles and started pulling me out of my body - this is also the only time I have experienced a "spirit" version of myself, as I could see my "spirit" legs, luminescent representations of my legs, being lifted up and out of my body, and through the blanket I had over me. I was consciously awake enough during this experience to understand what was happening - these figures looked frightening but didn't really do anything or say anything threatening, except for that they were tugging on my spiritual essence to help it "out" I guess... I sat up and screamed at them - at this point I was most certainly fully awake - and could still see them and literally watched them vanish before my eyes. I haven't seen them since.

Just a few days ago I was napping on the couch, laying on my stomach. I was trying to go to sleep when I felt the first vibrations start, at that point I consciously held onto the experience... I no longer try to fight it, and actually try to make it happen... when suddenly I "popped" out and was floating above myself over the coach. I was able to move my consciousness about the house at will and look around. Some things appeared to be slightly off from what they would look like under normal situations, but I was aware of such things immediately.

It takes a little bit of practice, but each time it gets easier, and you can actually control the intensity. As far as I can tell it isn't anything to be afraid of. I think we are a small percentage of people who are able to become self aware outside the limited realm of our physical bodies.

demonic dream
by: Anonymous

This message?comment is for Kayla although I don't claim to know everything there is to know on this subject but I know enough to give you some helpful insight. My daughter just recently had a demonic encounter. . . I don't know if you're saved or not but please profess Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior as soon as possible. ( Romans 10:9-10 )that figure of the " grim reaper " is none other than death itself ! Satan's mission is to kill, steal & destroy . .God will never employ any of his children to kill another. Satan know his end is near & he is trying to destroy GOD;S children. He can't possess what isn't his but he can try an tourment you..the next time this mat happen call upon JESUS as loud as u can !

Confusion
by: RRD

Upon having maybe some encounters or experiences I will go to a place where everything is confusion and chaos, I have not gained full control but am fully aware I am not in a physical realm I seem to realize I have left my physical body and are wishing my wife would try and get me out of this place by shaken me or something. Well anyway as I said the place I journey to on one occasion is dark, dreary and nothing but confusing and chaos as a square peg trying to fit in a round hole. It has other people their we either are not helping each other or just cannot help we are alone truly but pass, stand and run around each other. Their are creatures one is a dark figure thing with kind of beetle black eyes solid figure and very tall 7-9 feet tall they just stand and watch as guards other creatures that seem unnatural nothing seems good here I ( STRESS ) the word confusion teeth gnarling confusion. I seem to speak to a dark man who has some type of little glowing bugs or something crawling under his skin, his eyes dark and hollow like evil, a ladie who seems lost they seem to know that their is someone in charge and he is evil the tell me its hell ( the ladie and man on different experiences to add) Also I have joureyed to another one place seems like a carnival but that's another post. Anyway in this place I can't make sense of anything and just when I think I do everything changes but there's alot of chaos there I am there trying to wake myself but can't I know my wife is next to my body but can't scream I feel stuck in this place fighting to awake myself out of this trance. I wish I could talk to someone about this who has had similar experience dowling75@aol.com please write would like to talk.

Confused
by: Dylan May

Hi guys,
my names dylan may and im 20years old.

odd things happen to me and my mum all the time,It feels like something evil is watching us,but then at the same time it feels like something good is protecting us at the same time.

The first thing what has happened to me was when i was 13 years old ,
I was wide awake and i heard the door open slowly! ,then it sounded like something big walked in to my room,the thing then touch my shoulder and i couldn't stop shaking for about 1min it felt asif my soul was being ripped out of my body ,after 3 minutes I had the confidence to look and my door was wide open and the light was off!.I looked towards the doorway and could hear women's voice calling me to my mums room,i slapped my self about 3 times! ,I then ran towards the voice and to my mums room :( ,i kinda thought it was just me dreaming and it was all in my head but i asked my mum and she said she heard something come in my room.

About 5 years later I talked about this to my mum again,and she said to me "dylan i didn't want to tell you but when two weeks before this happened to you it happened to me,and a women's voice told me i would be ok".

My mum has told me other thing which have happened to her .When she was my age,Three small men used to come in her room every other night and she said that they used to stand there and but they wasn't looking at her but looking threw her like she wasn't there something else.

if anything like this has happened to you email me please: mokiboy@msn.com

I've only told my sister this...
by: RMR

I was living in an apartment in 1997, it was 1 year after my son was born. I was taking a nap in his room. He was in in his crib and I was on the spare bed in his room. It was early afternoon. I was awoken by my name being called out. Not yelled out but the voice was right in my ear so close I could feel the breath. The hairs on my entire body stood. That was the start of it all. A few times after this incident it happened again only it would be louder and would repeat my name two or three time. Well a few years later we moved to another location..I thought it would be over and maybe it was the apartment or me. Not so. I was, again, sleeping late at night. Again I was awoke to this deep, stern, demanding voice saying my name in my ear again feeling its breath. I would sit straigh up and it would be gone. I would get up and walk around because I was so uncomfortable with the feeling inside my body. Something didn't feel right.
Well - we moved again to Florida for a business opportunity. I had no problems again until about 6 monthes after being in Florida. I awake again to the voice but this time it was not in my ear it was straight in my face, I could not move my body I felt like it was sitting on top of me, I couldn't breath. I opened my eyes only to see red eyes looking into mine. As I would struggle to move my legs were being held down. The eyes followed mne in every direction I looked to. repeating my name. Then I prayed and told it to go away. Needless to say I couldn't sleep for a very long time. Many years have gone by and I have moved many times it's still with me. I have had some horrifing ventures with whatever this maybe and I do not talk about. Sometimes it happens now and I tell it not tonight I'm tired!! And it goes away and others I have no choice but to deal with it. It has gotten so bad I can sense days before when it's coming. That's when I start take sleeping pills. Many times I wake up with bruises on my legs and arms that I can't explain and neither can my significant other can explain or he wants to know what I'm doing to myself. Anyways, I always feel this presence and I realize that it's something I will probably live with the rest of my life. I have always had a sense of out of body experiences since I was a little girl but this is not an out of body experience. I'm awake and when I do get up after the episode the entire house seems to have a spell on it. I cannot not awake anyone no matter how much noise I make. No one wakes up except me. I wish I had more time but I have to go for now. Thanks!!!

encouraged
by: Anonymous

I had my first experience as a child in theform of aliens. It was frightening at the time, but I laughed about it later. Now in my twenties, I've experienced it four times all as dark figures. Arms soon as it begins, I know what is about to happen. The slamming of doors, being pushut, being lifted off the ground by abdark figureand in one case being pushed down by 3 figures. Every time I call out to Jesus and ask for his help. And immediately I wake upgasping and pale faced. My mom experienced this while pregnant with me, so I know this is an attack on my spirituality. I find so much encouragement in all of this. I know now, I belong to God and God alone and despite these awful feelings, my faith keeps me sane. Good to know I'm not the only one to experience this.

changed a couple of non-believers
by: NOT-Crazy

I used to experience this often as a young adult(19-24 or so y.o.a)ONLY in my parents house and ONLY in my room(I slept often on the downstairs couch for experiments).
I would wake up in the middle of the night after all various times of being asleep(never the same pattern of happening)I could only move me eye's sometimes my head would move SLIGHTLY,above my bed is a crucifix and it would for whatever reason be a source of light in a totally dark room.
I would see 2-4 "shadow people" in the room all at different parts of the bed,I would try to scream and yell but it was impossible,it would slowly end after repeating prayers for 30-45 seconds end and movement would return to my body.
For skeptics,I spent a week at my girlfriends home while her parents went on vacation,it NEVER happened to her EVER! 2 nights in a row it happened to me while alone in the bed while she was in the den chatting on the net,she walked in one time just as it was ending,she always believed me that it happened for I had no reason to lie.
1 week after her parents returned home from their trip it started to happen to her,REMEMBER it never happened to her before I slept there but more than a few times AFTER I exp it,I was the bad one who party'd and did the wrong things,so a possible answer was always "its from the substances you abuse" MAYBE,but what about when I was sober for 3 yrs and it still happened?why my girl who NEVER abused anything EVER?
It has'nt happened in a long time and dont miss it,but its something I nor anyone else who knows me could explain,and believe me I looked for answers,6th sense sensitivity runs in my family so SOME things that I went through were un-covered but this was one that could not.

My Experience
by: Risela

Hey guys, glad to hear we are not alone after all. Not saying is a positive thing for most of us but at least we feel supported in a way. I do believe in God but I'm not into any religion. I was baptized at the age of 9 under the Catholics belief and I got married in the catholic church. Even do , I'm not religious , I could say Catholicism is part of me in a way. I do like Greek mythology though however like I said , I don't practice any religion in any way. I do have SP too. Mine, started since I was 4 or 5 and probably even earlier but the oldest one that I can remember was in the age around 4 or 5. I could actually move and even fell from the bed when I suddenly woke up but didn't feel pain or anything from the fall. In the sp state, I went to the hallway across my room trying to reach my parents bedroom. In the middle there was a bathroom. The door of the bathroom was open, it was not completely dark since it was early in the morning and a little bit of light was coming through the window. When I got close to the door a demon shaped figure, which I associated at that time with the wolf of red ridding hood, came out of the door and scared me really bad. At that moment , I woke up. The episodes are not that often , maybe 1 or 2 every other month. On my teenager days they used to be accompanied by very scary, undefined deep voices and couldn't move at all. Sometimes I could understand even though they were not saying anything meaningful and others I couldn't . There was one that it looked like a shadow spider that crawled into my pillow and started whispering things I couldn't understand but the voice sounded demonic. Every time I'm having this episode my body feels a tingling sensation and I used to compare it more as electricity running through my body. On the earliest 20 , I have lost if not all , most of the fear towards this experience but I do respect it since it is still unknown to me. Sometimes I want to experience it when is happening and I decide to stay a little bit longer but I do always have controlled the end for the episode. When I want it to stop, it will stop. I have notice that the more relaxed you try to be on the sp episode the stronger the feeling of the tingling sensations gets. It makes sense though, in order to have Out of Body experience you need to be relaxed. I can't still control very much the movements but now at the age of 25, I can move a little bit. Last week , the reason I'm doing research for 4th time, I kind of had an outer body experience. Like I said , I can control when I want to get out of the episode but the movements of my body is still hard to control. In other words can't move that much but is getting better. I used to pray "our father" out of fear to get this thing out of my sight or head in the same SP event but to be honest, I have learned the one that makes them stop is myself.

My Experience # 2
by: Risela

Well continuing with the experience of last week, I could actually get out of the body. On the corner of the room I was seeing a shadow but I decided not to pay attention and keep going. I moved one arm first, right arm, then with the help of it I sat on the bed. When I was going to get out of the bed, this shadow reached its hand to me like trying to grab me or push me to my body, not sure what it was trying to do but I woke up in a snap, seconds when the interaction happened. It was very weird. I'm not scared but confused. I have never seen a clear visual of these things but just shadow and very dark. I have experienced most of the stuff you guys have however never experienced, chest pressure, heavy breathing or hard to breath. I did at a certain point thought these thing were holding me from moving but as I have grown with experience of more episodes , now I believe is us. We are the ones who can't move. The movement is a matter of relaxing not forcing the body to move. The harder you try , the harder it will be to move. Is actually a combination of both relaxing and trying to move. The more you relax, the stronger the tingling sensation get and it can be scare since is something we are not used to so we would try to force ourselves to move instead. Also if you don't like the sp event, just force yourselves to wake up like if you were in a dream. I'm pretty sure all of you can control it. That's your body you own it. The mind and the will is much much powerful than you can actually imagine. So, in conclusion, I started very early and still get the episodes, not that frequent and I still can't experience a full body out of experience but I have improved. Now what it got me thinking was the shadow in the wall that I decided to ignore from my last episode that try to reach me. I don't know if it was me that made myself to wake up or it was this thing. It felt more like it didn't wanted me to leave my body instead of grabbing me. The hand looked very demonic like a a claw with long fingernails.

My Experience # 3
by: Risela

Well like I said, I'm not religious but I do believe in God/Devil and an unseen world. I'm not obsess with anything just chocolate and sugar in general. I'm healthy and active. Also I finish my B.A. in psychology at 23 and I'm two years behind from starting my Masters studies but I will get there. I needed to share that info since everything is important in order to figure this out. The only thing I have found from your experience is that you don't need to be ill or be practitioner of any religion to get this sp. Therefore body state and Religion is non related to the sp experiences or at least they are not the common triggers for the SP. The only thing in common here is we all Believe in God and we believe in this so called Sleep Paralysis and the evil shadows that brings. I will like to ask something, how is the episodes getting as you grow older? Do they get worse or better? Have they changed in frequency? Anyways, I do apologize for my English since I'm Hispanic.

To NOT-Crazy
by: Risela

Yes, same here Not-Crazy. Actually the 6th sense runs in my family too I don't know to what extent but It does too. I'm actually able to sense few stuff but thanks God I can't see or feel more than that. I'm not into those things and I prefer it stays that way. On the contrary of my husband that doesn't dream at all or at least he can't remember not even one, I do dream every day and in every sleep. In a few cases I have experience the so called de ja vu but it was just that I dream about it. I do believe we all have that too.

I am an atheist and i experience dark figures.
by: David A.

I am asleep or i think that i am asleep.i can see and hear and smell everything around me but i cannot move i am paralyzed my entire body is tingling. i watch this black shadow appear in front of me walking towards me empty eyes no legs. Just pure darkness staring me in the face. i try to scream no voice i can not move it stares and stares i hear static mumbling high pitch noises. I wake up.Or i think i did. but i am still asleep.Then another shadow appears in the corner. i feel pressure on my chest i feel my throat being grasped can not breathe and then i truly awake.No shadows same smells same everything.nothing but Pure FEAR.

i saw these figures when i was awake walking down the road. Everything seemed to go into slow motion and i would see this dark figure 6 to 8 ft tall empty eyes staring at me then it would disappear into the woods or just disappear.I feel watched i am always paranoid. this first started when i was around 5. I was diagnosed With bi-polar disorder with schizophrenic tendencies. and i have been off and on medications for years. And it seemed to stop until a couple days ago. Just dreams of that black dark empty figure and i feel as if something is watching me. I am confused.

sp - topic: crystals & fear (continued)
by: Phil

wanted to add some more comments to my previous post concerning the use of crystals and on the topic of 'fear'. Wanted to add that an amethyst pendant for protection should not be worn by anyone who is hyperactive, autistic, schizophrenic, mentally handicapped, or extremely single-minded. (then clear quartz would be worn instead or by anyone else) -this is according to the book i was quoting in the above post. just want to cover all the bases as best i can.

FEAR: something the book also mentioned about that i found to be simple and empowering. i'll just quote verbatim:

"The human being is certainly much stronger than any bad entity because the human possesses a body, which a spirit does not have. It is, moreover, the reason why evil, negative and disincarnate spirits search out people in order to posses them, since they want to re-embody themselves. Because we have something that the bad spirits have not (out bodies), we are stronger from the outset.
On the other had, the evil spirit does have a way in, a means of influencing human beings: fear. It is this which feeds the spirits and gives them their strength. If you have absolutely no fear of the forces of evil, then they can have no influence over you.
There are two natural fears: that of falling and that of sudden noise. All other fears are creations of your imagination. You do not need them and they can even harm you and slow down your evolution. Fear attracts that which you are afraid of. If you are afraid of thieves, they will come. If you fear fire, you will be a victim of it. If you are frightened of the devil, he will show himself to you.
You can confront fear, because it is very cowardly. All the time that you run away from it, it will follow you like your shadow. The moment that you turn and face it, it will be the one to run away. The only way to get rid of fear is to tackle it head on, to analyze it, to find out where it comes from and why it is there."

"From the earliest age we are taught to respond to fear more than love. As a result we have created a very critical situation in the world. People are afraid, react to that fear and work with it."

"...the power of the voice and that of the body - if one does not feel any fear - are stronger than any evil being. As Jesus said in the Bible: 'Get thee behind me, Satan'"

Hope this is helpful to anyone else. God Bless!!

Here is one of my experiences
by: Jessie

I'm glad to know we are not alone. I get them too. I have alot of them and has been happening for about 2 years now.

I was in my bed sleeping when i heard sounds like someone was choking someone. So I got up in order to help them but when i opened the door i saw some people carrying a young woman and they put her on the bed in the room across from mine. Well the woman was having a seizure. The people carrying her were trying to hold her down. Being a medic I knew I had to do something. I was looking at her and she was looking at me. Then I got this thought "In the name of Jesus be healed my child." So I grabbed her hand and touched her forehead and said "In the name of Jesus be healed." Well she stopped and then she turned into a demon. Yes crazy. It was very dark brown. I couldn't see any facial features to him. But he was screaming! So I grabbed him ( Of course the Holy Spirit did this because I could never do this on my own.) and had him against the wall. and told him to leave her in the name of Jesus. He screamed at me! and then left. (The screaming was the worst part)

Then I looked behind me at the window because there was two demons out there screaming at me. I couldn't tell what they were but they looked very evil. Almost looked like birds. I think they had red eyes. Anyways I don't know why but I pounded on the window.

Then i was running down this path. There was a fork in the road and i turned right. There was trees there. I turned around so I could see why I was running. I saw a flock of demons flying right behind me. I was a little scared but had this thought come to me that there was an angel there. I couldn't see him and then I woke up.

When I saw them i felt helpless but then remembered that I wasn't because Jesus gave us authority over them. I just never had to deal with those types of demons. There was alot of them too.

Question about sleep paralysis

Is it possible to move at all during sleep paralysis. I had an experience in which I actually turned over to see a bright figure and then was paralyzed instead of being paralyzed from the moment I wake up. Is this common in sleep paralysis or is this another thing all together?

I Have exactly the same experiences
by: Anonymous

I just ran across this page because I googled Demonic spirits. I just recently had a sp thing and I've been having several of them. I have been wondering if they are just dreams but seriously they feel so real. It is getting irritating to have to resist the experience when you feel like you are going to die and they only leave you alone when you pray and ask for Gods aid. Any advice comment after this please . I'm tired of it and I'm starting to think they want me to negotiate with them or something.

more than sp
by: Anonymous

you wake up (not awake). why is everything moving at 3/4 speed? is this my bedroom? is fu*%ing has to be, right!? when you finally move in slow motion off the bed you collapse to the cold cold wood floor and tremble as an icy metalically electric (demonic) voice mockingly whispers through your poor head saying "there is no God". it's more than just a little 'sp'. I need Max von Sydow and the midget from poltergeist

Demonic Animals?
by: Caitlin in MN

Hi, all.

First, I am so relieved to hear of similar experiences. I have a twin sister and we both have experienced the evil spirit who enters our sleep and applies pressure on our chest. It happened for several years throughout college before we talked about it and realized we were experiencing the same spirit. It continued until I was 25. After that, I experienced a different type of presence.

When I was 25-26, I was bartending on a Saturday night and arrived at my apartment around 2am. I saw two dark four-legged shadows running, their shadows casted on the building nearby. I assumed they were cats, but I felt an all-over body chill. I told myself to ignore it and go to bed.

That night, I woke to my bedroom door being opened and I heard the pattering of paws across my carpet. I experienced the usual chill that starts at your forehead and runs across your entire body. The creatures hissed and jumped at my bedside as if they were trying to attack me. I could feel everything around me: my bed sheets, the way my body was laying, etc. I was half awake and could feel them tugging on the sheets, but it was as if I had this bubble of protection around me. It was so frightening.

Since that experience, I no longer feel the "man" - just the four-legged creatures entering the room. It happens twice a year. But one week ago, my puppy and my husband were laying in bed next to me... I was dreaming a pleasant dream and then it was suddenly interrupted to an evil presence. I was immediatley half awake; I could feel my puppy next to me and I could hear him whimpering, and I could feel my husband breathing. There was only one creature this time, and it crawled onto my pillow, sitting above my head and hissing. I could feel my hair move as it crawled around me. For the first time in this type of "visit", I was able to open my eyes but I was still paralyzed. I then did what I always do: I started saying the Lord's Prayer and yelled at it to "go away." It went away, and then my puppy stopped whimpering.

Does anyone else experience visits four-legged creatures? I feel so alone and unable to talk to anyone without getting laughed at and told that I'm just dreaming hard.

There was this small figure standing by his bed staring at him. he said it was full of hate and evil.

Night Terrors and things that go bump in the night
by: Anonymous

There are so many others who experience weird and unexplained occurrences in the middle of the night. Who do you go to? Even members in your own house might think you have gone off the deep end when you even try to tell them what happened. I have had these bizarre things happen to me, my first one being a resplendent angel of light (wings, and glowing robe, very blindingly bright) that came to call on me in the night. His or Her message was for me to pray to God, and even though I was young (guessing between 3 or 4 years old) it scared me so much I told my parents that I had seen a devil cause no one ever told me about angels. I now know that the angel was a warrior angel and not a cute little cupid sent to advise me, so I believe it might have been St. Michael. I know now that it came to protect me from whatever was shaking the bed at night, which used to terrify me. An object in the house was haunted. That was my first experience, which frankly I put away for decades because it was so weird. However, I did pray at night, all the time and used to make up my own prayers of protection as I was aware that something was lurking in the dark shadows.

When I was older, I had a sleep paralysis during the day, and felt that someone was sitting on my chest and I couldn't move or scream out for help. It happened during the daylight and I was sick and in bed. Still horrifying and I let out a scream when I finally was able to function.

Other weird things: seeing an ET like praying mantis shadow projected on the bedroom wall at night. The actual physical figure was invisible, but the shadow was clear and animated, rubbing it "hands" together. I was terrified and in a state of panic, but somehow managed to go into a dead sleep and wake up in the morning. My last recollection of the night was trying to get out of the bed and turn on the light, but somehow I was zapped into a dazed sleep. That happened in the early 80's and no one talked about ETs, so I naturally thought it was demonic... not to say that ETs are not demonic in nature.

Another odd thing was waking up in the middle of the night and sitting up in bed and watching a very bright laser type scanner search the pillow, sweeping across the surface and disappearing. This was before we had the UPC codes and scanners, but in hindsight it was sort of the same.

Please pray to Jesus for your salvation, Pray at night when you feel you are being attacked by entities, ETs or demons. Surround yourself with the light of God and thank God for his Blessings. Be the best person you can be, and turn away from evil so nothing gets a spiritual hold on you. Remember you are a child of God and He Loves you. Read your Bible and keep it by the bed stand. It took me decades to sort this all out.

demons

i want it to stop
by: Shannon

I too have had these experiences for years. I am glad to know that i am not crazy and other people have these experiences and it has a name. About 18 years ago I went to a Bible study. This was before my first experience and the leaders daughter was having the same thing going on. I remembered her saying she told her daughter to say "Jesus" out loud and it will end the sp. The first time it happened to me I didn't think to say it in the midst of it. When I was thinking about it the next morning (about 2 years after the Bible study) I remembered her saying to say Jesus outloud. Now everytime I have the sp I say Jesus. It feels like my vocal chords are paralyzed the first couple seconds but it eventually explodes out of my mouth then the sp is over. But it sure screws up my night. Why does this happen to me? The feeling in my chest scared me so bad. My husband says I am having panic attacks. No its not panic attacks. Its deamons. Why me???

by: Mr. G

About 2001 when l was in the army l experienced my first visit of a shadow person and since then l am visited every 4-5 months for the first year l would go to sleep and l would tnink l was awake and the dark figure would come through the wall or from above me as l lay on me bed every time l would be unable to move as the dark figure pressed against my chest l would then panic and manage to wake up and would be left with red marks on my chest after a few times of this happening l would show no fear to whatever it was that was visiting me and then it didnt happen for about 6 months when l left the army. Then one night as l was staying at my grans l slept on my uncles sofa bed and he witnessed a dark figure floating above me and did not tell me until the next day. That night l felt as if l had woke up andthe room was cold and l felt the bottom of my bed push down and there it was again staring at me l showed no fear this time again and l asked it what it wanted there was no repy and it went away again, just recently l have had two experiences in the last month one from a dark dog like creature that tried to drag me out the bed by the arm and my girlfriend lyin next to me woke me up ask l was yelling noand when l woke my arm was sore but l just passed it off as a nightmare to her, last night a dark figure lay next to me and whispered in my ear"my army as l lay" l asked him what he ment he repeated it and went away, l have never understood any of this, and l still dont.

EVIL OBE
by: Ashlyn

I've had these experiences since I was 16. My evil shadow guy was a man with a tophat and cane with smoke swirling around his entire body. I've came to the conclusion that there are upper and lower levels to this dimension. These beings.. and the feeling of terror in general are all a part of what this lower dimension in fact "is". But once you allow youself to go beyond that lower level of shear ugliness...there are no limits!

Same Experience
by: Tonya WIlloughby

I have experienced the same SP since 1994. I could be asleep and would ajar from a sound of a door opening and closing in my bedroom. I can open my eyes and see my bedroom and be semi awake but catch a shadow figure coming around. I can hear voices while I am sleeping. I am sane as sane can be! This pass week, I had two experiences. The first experience was on Monday, Dec 26th. I had picked up my son (whom I put up for adoption in 1992 and had reunited with him two years ago). My mother was killed in a car accident in 1998. That night, I had my father, my son that I reunited with after all these year, my other two children, and my husband under one roof for Christmas. That night in my bed I was asleep on my side but I could feel a presence. I tried to speak but nothing came out. I tried to speak again and can hear myself speak. I said "Mom is that you?", she said "yes, baby it is me." I said "I miss you and love you so much" she said "I love you so much baby girl." That was the end of our conversation. Last night I had the same episode. I said "Is that you mom?" there was no answer. I heard a cough and it sound like my Grandmother. I said "Grandmother is that you?" she said "Yes, it Grandmother." I said "Hey" and she replied by saying "hey." I said "I love you Grandmother" and she said "I love you too.": That was the end of our conversation. I belive we can communicate with our loved ones. It is unexpected.

RE: Communicating with dead loved ones
by: Barney

FYI...demons spirits are very deceptive and go to any extreme to trick us. The Bible makes reference to "Familiar Spirits" that can take the shape and voice of dead loved ones.

I have done a lot of research on this subject. A man named Roger Morneau was involved in secret groups that communicate with "dead loved-ones." He wrote "A Trip into the Supernatural" where he explains all that he saw first hand regarding this.

You can actually watch the entire interview on Youtube by searching "Roger Monreau"

Freedom from evil spirits part 2
by: E.A.J

It says in verse 13 it is disgusting to God and you will be an object of horror. Sexual sin and alcohol usage are also other vehicles which allows evil spirits to gain a foothold into our lives. There are many ways to open the doors to the demonic such as watching certain t. v. programs, and participating in certain activities such as stated above can open up the door for demons to be invited to your house and torment you. I could talk for months on this subject and have taught about these subjects as a minister many times. I have prayed for many people who have been attacked by demons some have even started shaking and manifesting like people you might have seen on television who were possessed by demons. I love to help people get free from these demons. All I can say is that if you want to be free from being tormented by these spirits here are some things you must do. You must be in a good Bible believing church that specializes in deliverance and you must confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior from Romans chapter 10 verses 8-10, and read the Bible every day. You must shut the door to some things you are doing, and remove certain objects in your house that are drawing these demonic spirits and triggering there appearance. You don’t have to manage sleep paralysis like I saw in some book. I broke free from sleep paralysis through the help of Jesus. It is your choice. You must make the first step. God is always waiting to help you in all areas of your life, but He won’t force you to follow Him. He comes on scene when you are sincere, and will help you know matter how many mistakes you make in life. His love is unconditional and is always free. My God bless you all.

SP
by: Jermy

I have also encountered this situation with demons attacking me and coming into my bedroom. It did not stop for a long period of time and I would recommend wearing your body down to a point where you are still awake but you feel as if you are about to experience this SP and you may go into a deeper sleep that will cause the SP to not occur as frequently. you can also try taking sleeping medication but id advise talking to a doctor before you try that. I believe that the SP happens when you are falling asleep or waking up so if you can skip the lighter sleep periods then you will not hallucinate.

This website will help you understand the certain stages of sleep and SP occurs frequently in stage 1. If you can skip this stage SP may not occur.

Jinn
by: Anonymous

Salaam everyone,
Here you are experiencing what muslims call the Shaitan Jinn (the bad ones, there are good ones too but they leave humans alone). The bad ones are the army of Satan and can appear in many forms. Thy seduce you by your weak points, since they are able to read your mind. There are ways to protect yourself from them. God tells us that he has revealed the chapter in the Quran known as Kursi to help fight these entities.
They feed off your fear and will entice you to believe they are good by playing with your mind. Once they get a hold of you, they slowly either drive you mad or kill you. They come as black shadows figures, black dogs, half human and half beasts. They like to be imaginative with how they look and like to scare humans. Generally they are made of energy (plasma) and live in another dimension alongside ours.

Play these verses from the quran and they will leave you. It worked for me. They get burnt by the Quran.
Also read the chapter Jinn in the Quran and sayings of prophet Mohammed.

Dr. Jimmy,
While your expert diagnosis is almost appreciated, take your infinite wisdom and extensive vocabulary to a forum not interested in intelligent discourse.

"Why" is a question reserved for those of us with an ounce of sincerity. If you already conclusively know the final explanation of sp, how did you end up on this forum?

Same exact demonic dream, Help!
by: LL

I have been having the same exact nightmares now for months. Have almost come to the conclusion that my house is haunted with a freaking demonic figure until coming across this article.

I keep having a reocurring dream- everything is the same, my bed, my body , but then a demonic figure appears above me. It's a large black shadowdy figure- I can see it clearly- and it starts to lean down on top of me. I feel my chest getting heavy, and just then I wake up gasping for air. I always wake up extremely frightened and too scared to get out of bed, in feat that the black figure is still in my room.

I've been having trouble seperating my dream from reality. It's really scary. This happens frequently, even when I sleep on my side.

Any suggestions would be helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jan 24, 2012
Re: Same Exact Demon dream, Help!
by: Barney

Hi LL,
I can relate. I am not a super religious person but I have a relationship with God via Jesus Christ and I have been meaning to share the Bible verses about demons for a long time. I find it interesting that the Bible talks a lot about demons and people being afflicted by or possessed by demons. The best part is that Jesus Christ said that He gives His follows power and authority over all evil spirits. This power over them is through the name of Jesus Christ.

CAUTION: The idea of using Christ name against evil spirits is that you have invited Jesus Christ into your life and asked for His help. As told in Acts chapter 19 There were some Jewish guys who did not know or believe in Christ but saw the way the Apostle Paul used the name of Jesus to cast out demons, they tried saying, "We cast you out in the name of Jesus Christ that Paul preaches." but it didn't work and they were
severely attacked by the demon possessed man whom they were trying to help.

I not actually trying to preach to you but I thought you would like to know some specific info that the Bible says about demons and evil spirits, I found the this teaching on a website--I will post it on the next reply because it's long.

There are many other resources you can find by typing in "bible verses authority over demons" in Google. I hope you find this helpful!

Re: Power Over Demons or Evil Spirits 1
by: Barney

LL,
Here's the info I was telling you about:

Your Spiritual Authority

When we have been given authority to cast out demons, but instead we pray that God brings the demon out instead, we are basically asking God to do something that He gave US the tools to do ourselves! Jesus told US to cast out demons! Nowhere in the Bible does it tell us to ask God to cast out demons!


Authority doesn't beg; authority doesn't ask; authority commands! We are not told to ask God to cast out demons, we are told to do it ourselves! We are not told to beg demons to come out, we are told to CAST them out!

Jesus cast out demons using His authority: Mark 1:27, "And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him."

He cast out demons with His spoken word: Matthew 8:16, "When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word..."

Jesus has been given authority over everything: Matthew 28:18, "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth."

Notice in Luke 9:1 that He not only gave His followers authority over all devils, but also to cure diseases: "Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases."

I also think it's interesting how Mark 16:17-18 tells us that healing can come through the laying on of hands: "And these signs shall follow them that believe... they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." The laying on of hands can encourage the transferring of power from us into the person and heal them, just like the woman who felt power flow from Jesus when she touched the hem of His garment (Mark 5:30)! Jesus said that those who believe will have the Holy Ghost flowing out of their innermost being (John 7:38-39), and even Peter's shadow healed people (Acts 5:15)!
Authority to cast out demons

Matthew 10:8, "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." And also look at Mark 16:17, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils..."

Luke 9:1, "Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils..."


Jan 24, 2012
Re: Power over Demons or Evil Spirits (Part 2)
by: Barney

Luke 10:17, "And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name."
Jesus distributes His authority

Mark 13:34, "For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch."

Jesus is given authority: Matthew 28:18, "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth."

Authority given to Jesus' 12 disciples: Luke 9:1, "Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases."

Authority given to Jesus' 70 disciples: Luke 10:17, "And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name."
Through Jesus' name

Notice that the authority Jesus gives His people is not to be used in their name, but Jesus' name:

Luke 10:17, "And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name."

Mark 16:17, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils..."

Acts 3:6, "...Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk."

To use somebody's authority through their name is quite an honor! It's like being able to go to the bank and draw out a million dollars on behalf of a wealthy businessman!
Authority has been given to "Them who believe"

I read your words and am not surprised. I can understand the torment. I would advise that you research other religions in this aspect. islam has an interesting concept of jinn. Research in this has been made by a Modern Scholar Dr. Bilal Philips.

My experience is vast
by: Messenger

It always amazes me to read others comments and how very similar they are to my own events. It took me many many years to realize that SP events are of a demonic nature. Science can say what it wants about these events and what it means to science. All I know is after over 20 years I am lead to wisdom. First of all- you are attacked by demons that wish to mislead or terrorize you. Once you grow beyond the fear- truly beyond it- then you no longer see things the same. I know that alot of you may not believe in the Bible or the Son that god sent but he is just as real as the darker than night ones. My experiences are too many to talk about within the scope of 3000 characters. That limitation is about as limiting to my experiences as the notion of overcoming the national debt. I have had the slow realization of moving from SP to realizing that it is the spirit awake and have often left my body. Physicality has something to do with it as SP is real but what science does not understand is the other side because they have not been there. Seek the Lord.

Demonic shadow in my dream
by: Anonymous

Once I saw this dark shadowy man very tall with no feathers, in my dream. I could tell he was demonic and was after me to hurt me somehow. In my dream I was having lunch with my sister-in-law who I had not seen for 17 years. As I look over the trees the shadow man jumped out so fast, he didn’t give us time to run. I yelled to my sister-in-law and telling her to run and for some reason I told her not to let him touch her; I don’t know why I said that. I remember that distinctly in my dream that something was telling me not to let him touch me otherwise I will be coursed or will get badly sick. The dark shadow grabbed her and I got myself out of there right at nick of the time. A week after my dream my husband found out his sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. I can’t believe these demonic spirits can appear in our dream and harm us in our real life.

Its happens to me
by: Nicolas Patton

I've had the same exact stuff happen. Except I have actually gotten out of my body and walked around. I tried waking my grandma up not realizing I wasn't in my body. Its do crazy cos everything that he said is true this isn't a dream it is real... They have spoken to me open my door and say stud like piccaboo I see you they have even told me to not be afraid to praise them, while my grandmother was sleeping next to me it was a black shadow laying next to me my grandma was on the other side it was rubbing my hand telling me to not be afraid to praise him. As I watched me shake in terror tryin to wake my grandma up she woke up from my shakes an I heard her say he must be dreaming but I wasn't dreaming it was real and when I asked her the next day if she said that she said that she wasn't saying it she was thinking it so some how I read herons while having a sp. I've also seen 3 black shadows, 2 was at the end of my bed and one was by my window and it was like they was playing with my soul I was hovering in circles over my body watching me sleep. The first time it happend was at my moms house i was like 16 or 17 but i swore I was awake and somebody was holding me against my bed I couldn't yell, scream, or move all I could do was take in the view. And it wasn't a dream and I know this because I was stairing at my alarm clock before I had woke up and when I was able to move it was the same time... That how I know these are real and honestly ive been smoking marijuana because it got I the point to where I was having them everynight and when I noticed smoking weed stops the sp I continued smoking.....

Shadow Person
by: Ridgecrest, CA

Pretty strange. Last night I was sleeping and then I was attempting to wake-up but could not. My eyes were open and then I could distinctly see this short shadow person fervently working on doing something to me. I don't recall if it spoke to me but I remember responding to it with the Lord's Prayer. The thing may have been mocking me. I have in the past had sleep paralysis but never where I saw a creature. I may have been able to see it since light from the living room was directly behind the thing. I have been as of late been dealing with stress and I guess it could be attributed to that. Let's hope that I no longer experience it.

they believe me now
by: Anonymous

A few months ago I was sleeping in my cousins bedroom, and awoke to a scary deep demonic voice yelling in my ear " I'm in the dark , and when you go to sleep . I'm going to get you." I told my cousin and everyone and of course they didn't believe me . Although now the believe me . My cousin was asleep in her room when she felt paralyzed, unable to breathe and couldn't talk . It also talked to her with the same voice and said "go to sleep" also saying other words. Her boyfriend had to shake her and take her out of the room . We are no longer sleeping in there . Could this be a demonic presence ?help.

I had them too - until my house was blessed.
by: Ioanna

I too would wake up with the pressure of something sitting on my chest or choking me - or just plain waking me up! I would also see shadowy figures at varying times every once in a while. No evil men in hooded robes though. I got Holy Water from a Catholic Church, and a prayed a Catholic house blessing service. Praise God - the Lord Jesus has ended these horrible things. Avail yourself of His mighty help! He loves us intensely!

Happens to me too
by: Sarah

Ok people; if anyone thinks that this is anything aside from spiritual they have to be crazy. There is NO WAY all of us are going through this for it NOT to be real. I am not giving going to talk about my experience because there is NO need to since it's identical to what everyone else has been saying. It's not like we are collaborating our stories. We are obviously being chosen to experience this and we need to know why. Maybe it's so we can relay the message to others that good and evil does exist and that Jesus really is our savior.

TREATMENT
by: SUFI+Norway

Your whole story is true.Its not only you, but many in this world, suffering with multi dimensional acts of creature following Devil.They can be defined as a creature, with intelligence but with negative work and follow thier father devil.They cant be seen by ordinary eyes, as this evil creature is made from a radiation or wave that holds very special energy.We human dont have ray detectors for this very sofisticated frequency and thats why we dont believe in this creature.Infact this creature is very powerful for a weak spiritual person and can be destroyed if human is spiritualy strong and follow some special exercise through proper guidlines from a teacher.If you still have this problem, i might help you free of charge.

Attic Fears
by: Frightened

I had always believed in such things like this. Shadow people and such. But I always had the little bit of skepticism in my mind. I went to my aunts house and offered to sleep upstairs since there was an extra bed up there. I'll admit the upstairs had always made me feel like something was going to hurt me, reach out and grab me, It made me feel like I needed to run. The night rolled around and I went upstairs to go to sleep. All my stuff was up there mind you. I fell asleep after talking to my boyfriend on the phone and soon after, I began to have dreams, like multiple dreams all cut together on one photo reel. Soon shadows began to show up on the dreams, as if people were standing in front of the projector. My dreams were silent, in color. I don't generally dream with out sound. Soon enough I could feel every hair on my body lifting in fear, only to find myself waking up, just before I was thrown against a wall. I left all my stuff behind and ran, stumbling down the stairs and slamming the door behind me. I wanted nothing more to do with it, and even had my uncle go up and grab my stuff. I ended up falling asleep on the couch with my cousin in the chair next to me. I slept perfect. That morning, my aunt told me that I was braver than her sons, they had refused to ever sleep upstairs since my oldest cousin had started having 'episodes' as my family called them..But I know what he saw was real...My oldest cousin and I have something... in common. That everyone else refuses to believe.

We are safe. Be strong.
by: www.tumblingtruth.tumblr.com

... continued. last one! :)

To wake myself from the SP state, I just believe in the power of my own voice to free myself from the panic induced by the percieved paralysis. It always escalates to screaming as loud as possible. Sometimes I can't make a sound but I just try try try and it gets going and once it's ringing in my ears I wake up.

I wish everyone all the best in dealing with this, one of my friends went through an intense bout of it for over a month, I felt so bad for him. If it's tormenting you I suggest thinking of a special person, a personal angel, who can help you out, before going to sleep. Like really think about them, about who they are/were and your love for them and what they stand for. I think that by having faith in the power of love each and every one of us holds, we can wrap ourselves in that love and be protected by it.
Peace to you on your journeys! <3

I have almost the same issue.
by: Anonymous

As most of you have said you have all been religiously active or dabbled in some kind of witchcraft. I have never been into, dabbled or even been associated with any of the above.

Though in saying that i still get sp but mine doesn't stop when i wake, my dark figure stays with me. He is next to me as i go to work or school. Im 17yrs old and he first came to mewhen i was 12 in an sp episode, though unlike ther rest he came three nights in a row and said "i will be your brother, Grim" i thought he was stateting what he was but afyer so many years he's showed me that he is The Grim. I have trouble trusting people because of the things i've seen my Grim do.
I know this is a really really wacked out thing and possibly irrelevant but im just trying to see if anybody else has a 'Grim' that follows them or even assists them?
I have been diagnosed with depression but my psych has said this is the first she has ever heard off of a Grim. "Grim" has said he is Grim and all others are called "drakes" he wont answer me why but he has said they are the ones that haunt the plains. Which i think is the sp thing. I have tried to invoke name of God or Jesus christ but he stops and silences me saying he has no power in this realm.

Plz just tell me im not the only one with a grim.

What goes knock knock in the night?
by: Anonymous

I've also had my fair share of experiences... My first experience happened when i was about 8 yrs old. I had been sleeping with my parents and I got up to go to my bed. I remember that I had dropped something on the floor and when I bent down to pick it up an outline slowly began to appear on the bedroom floor. At floor I looked at it curious but became scared when I saw the red outline of a demonic face appear. I can remember the horns coming out of its forehead and that evil smile. To this day, it's the smile I remember most because it just exuded pure evil. Needless to say, my father had trouble putting me to sleep that night. Fast forward to my teenage years... it began one night when I went to sleep. I would wake up gasping for air as if someone was trying to suffocate me. Someone would tap on my window (mind you, I lived on the fourth floor)and i would wake up with a paralyzing fear that felt as if I were having a seizure. I told my mother what was happening and she began to believe when one day we came home from shopping and the moment we had entered the apartment the television turned on by itself. This happened for a few days before I finally went into my bedroom and told the entity to leave. Fast forward again to last night... I went to bed and could feel almost immediately that I was going to have one of "thoe" nights. I began dreaming about evil entities, killings.. almost as if I were watching a movie. The thing is I knew I was dreaming (don't know if that makes sense) but I couldn't wake myself up. And I remember saying in my dream that most non-believers usually start believing when they feel thae have no hope. At this point, my eyes just snapped wide open. And when I opened my eyes, I was looking straight into the face of a gremlin like creature that was hovering right over my head. When it realized I had opened my eyes, it ran off my bed. As if that wasn't terrifying enough what was most terrifying was that I actually FELT the creature running off the bed. So, I closed my eyes and opened them once more. My body was shaking with fear and it didn't stop for almost 10-15 minutes. I was so terrified. I remember it had almost like a football shaped head, was brownish in color (it was dark in my room) with big big eyes, long scrawny arms (and I assume the same for the legs). Either way, it's left me reeling and thinking I've gone insane. It's also left me with this feeling of dread that what happened when I was a teenager will happen again. The days of terrifying spooky noises, window tappings and the feeling of not being able to breathe. But as others have said, I do believe it has to do with there being another realm that we are not exposed to; only when our minds are "open." As I mentioned before, it occurred when I began to think about God and Jesus. I don't think it was a coincidence...

help yourself2
by: Mind2

Let's take a look- The first time you experienced SP it was something unknown to your mind. Being unable to move your body your brain tells you there is something very wrong. You do not know why you aren't able to move so you panic and turn to fear. The brain starts projecting things that it can relate to fear wich is evil, black, red, unknown, undefined creatures and figures, scary whispering voices.. (It is not necessary that you experience this kind of fear for the first time in SP because we all are different, no two minds react completely the same).

Fear is a primitive and powerful emotion, crucial for our existance and survival. As human beings we fear the unknown. Example- dark is scarry because you are not able to see like you normaly would. Same goes for not being unable to move your body. We FEEL emotions, and when we feel fear it puts some kind of a pressure on our chest and chills through our bodies.

help yourself3
by: mind3

At this point of your life your mind knows that something bad happens when you go to sleep. It has experienced it. You on the other hand have lived your life knowing that this sort of things do not exist. So in your sleep your mind catches you off-guard it wonders off and does what it knows. It knows what it has experienced in the past and what you have taught it by thinking about the past experiences. By thinking you gather more and more information about a certain thing thus making it bigger. By not thinking about it, it slowly fades away just like memories. So what you need to do is just to take control of your mind, teach it what you want for it to know. As more and more things you want your brain to know enter, the more things wich you do not think about fade away. So think about things you like, you want, you know would make you happy. The more u think about them the more you will leave others you don't want behind. You will always know about this experience but by time it will be just a
memory.

It is all in your head. Why aren't you harmed or even killed if this exists anywhere else than in your minds? Yes you can feel pain but this pain is caused by your emotions. Fear is so powerful it can make it hard for you to even breathe properly. We know this is not true by not being able to pin down what is happening. We can't define the figure's characteristics or the words they say (Just like in our dreams) But the more you think about it the more you define it and by that your mind will make up more details, which it would relate to bad. That is why it keeps getting worse and more realistic when you can actually understand their voices. And the reason you can see yourself or from another perspective is because your brain is capable of imagining how it looks. It mixes reality with fear so there you have it- figures in your room.

still tormented by sp
by: Teresa

when i was younger i used to have weird things happen in my room. there were times when i would be wide awake and i could feel an overwhelming fear and then it would happen ,something would hold me down i couldnt scream ,move no matter how hard i tried. Once i was pulled from my physical body and my spirit was being swung around the room in a circular motion.I was always afraid in my room and at a very young age my mother became a drug addict and injected me with drugs also.she died in that house but i can still feel and fear the dark entity thst tormented my childhood,is it possible that -that sp became a part of me or follows me now?My son can feel eyes on him when he walks down our hallway in a totally differnt house i feel it also and it scares me.

Shadow or man with no face
by: Amanda

So for the last 10 years I've had what I put off only as a dream, but seemed too real to be a dream. It's always the same thing, I slowly awake from a male staring at me from the foot of the bed. I don't feel threatened, I don't feel connected to this being either. It's strange there is nothing to show that it is a man, but I get the feeling that it is. he never touches and rarely gets close to my face, only a few time can I remember that it's gotten close to me face. I feel this being during the day at times. I've had sensitive people tell me about this, even though, I've never told them. There is no facial features. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experince?

A fight for my life (I think) with a Shadow Man or Demonic Entity
by: Anonymous

It was Dec. of 1996 in LA and I was at my grandmother's house sleeping in her bed on her side. We were visiting from Florida because she was dying, to be exact she died minutes after my attack.

I rememeber that night clearly. I had a high grade fever and was sleep when I woke to a black figure with a cloak and hat leaning over me. I believe he tried to suck the air from me, my soul, or tried to bit my head off. Fortunately, my mom was sleep next to me and if it wasn't for her fighting this black demon or my aunt and uncle running to the room, I don't know what would have happen. However, my mom will not talk about it to this day. She says it was probably the angle of death...no!

Since than I have not seen him. However, there was a man standing over my bed in July of 2006, which I thought was my dead brother and I had an outer body experience. Now I think it was a shadow man disguised as him. He had me get out of bed and look at my reflection through a window while he stood behind me.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one!

Religion is Evil
by: Anonymous

Its a shame so many of you ran to religion when you were scared. Religion hurts this world and our country in so many ways. The power you are getting from your religion is confidence. If you believed in yourself and your OWN power like that, then you would have similiar results in the spirit/sleep realm and would have a greater impact in your real life. Religion has always existed(long before Jesus and Moses, which are also recycled stories from even older religions)and was created by man to explain the unknown. Don't be a mindless sheep and believe ridiculous stories told by ignorant palestinians. They aren't factual and are meant to be taken as allegories to teach a lesson on morality. Take it with the grain of salt as it is meant to be.

Fighting off my demons while asleep!
by: Josh

I have read a lot of everyone's comments and post's and i find a lot very similiar to my own. I am 28 years old and have always had very lucid dreams. I have know God for most of my life but lost touch when i was a freshman in highschool, right after my mother passed away. For the last few years i have slowly develope a heavy drinking problem. In the last year i have lost my apt., my car, and my personal storage which contained about 98 percent of what i own! I have been praying more and more each day, and my dreams have been affecting my waking life so much more! I can feel myself becoming closer to God! It was only a week ago when i finally found the strength to stop drinking all together!! I hold the christian belief on most things. I have never, of all my dreaming, had and experience like this! I was surrounded by dark entities, most were just men in black suits surrounding me. I couldn't move but slowly began to repeat the Lord's prayer. Each time i spoke it stroger and louder and then the dark entities started to go away. The feeling i got from all of this was just the Lord was showing me how to fight off the demons that are keeping me down and he was telling me that i can fight them and i can beat them, but only with the help of God! These dream made me feel so much stronger! I feel blessed to have shared this experience with all of you!!

looking for truth
by: Dave

felt a hand over my face just before falling off to sleep one night 20 yrs ago. I awoke too this, and began looking for what I thought was a big spider in the sheets after turning on the light. Then I heard a voice say something in a different language from inside the room, from behind the recliner that I couldn't see behind! I was asking myself if I had just heard a voice, as it said the same thing again!! It sounded basically like "elo'ja" By this time I was fully awake and full of adreneline, but never went behind the chair. I felt safer making it make the first move, and it never did appear. From what I'm finding, it seems like it could be a witch. I know what I heard and I prayed at the time for protection and nothing happened to me. I have had episodes where I woke up but couldn't move or breathe. Could be related, or sleep paralysis. I know 20 yrs ago it wasn't SP.

My conclusion
by: Anonymous

When i was around 15, maybe 16 at the most i had a experience .One i would never want to happen again.Just like ne other night living at my parents house, Being tied, jumping into bed.I had the lamp on, it was clear as day, but out of the corner of my eye i saw my blanket raising as if someone was also sliding in next to me ,yes it did freak me out a little ,i soon got over it fell asleep .

I do not recall the time i was woken. But i recall having Sleep paralysis ,looking at my bedroom ceiling watching everything in a 2 meter circle spinning and being ripped away into a deep black hole ,Where i saw a skull face that looked like a grim reaper .While i am watching this all unfold right in front of me i am screaming HELP!! HELP!! KELLY!! to my step sisters, her room was right next to mine ...but no noise was coming out.

The hole experience was unpleasant,like it was unnatural Demonic maybe.

It has been close to 10 years since i experienced that event & what brought it up was a conversation i had with my mum and i shared the story with her & her telling me how my real father had that happen to him & it changed him for the worst .She told me how he had the full Exorcism done to him.tho i was very young when he passed away.

My conclusion is....I was a lucky one.The Entity that try ed to make me it's own failed & was collected by That skull face i saw in that black hole.

If you happen to understand this field more then me, Maybe you could help me understand this alot better :)

Peace

Didnt know i wasn't the only
by: Anonymous

I'll try and describe what happend to me as best as i can.

I had, what i assume was a dream. It felt like I partially woke up in a groggy daze, like i was sedated or something. Which is wierd because i'm such a light sleeper a friend can come to my house and if the window is even slightly open, the friend can call my name 2 stories down and i will wake up at first or second call. I can't recall having any problem getting up at any point of the night, not since childhood which is ~20 years ago.

I think i managed to open my eyes a little, and it looked like about 2-3 creatures of some sort where pulling my left leg. I can't really remember clearly what they looked like only that they did not look human but more like rags of thin cloth or something, but i can remember that they behaved in a manner i would describe as rabid, cartoony like.

If you ever seen the movie Lion King, with the three hyenas, the one that was the most tweaked out of them. I think that would the best way to describe the behaviour or demeanor of them. What they were saying i can not remember, if they even said anything, but i do remember it was some kind of talking og noisemaking going on.

I remember i tried to drag my foot away from them, because it felt like they were pulling and tugging it away from under my bedcover on the left side and into the air above the bed. I think i managed to snag it from them at one point because i could feel my calf hit a footstool that is placed directly beside my bed, one that belongs to a recliner chair i bought a few years ago. What happend after then i don't know because i can not remember anything until i later woke up.

Now to what's troubling me. I have a cyst, or tumor thing, that was discovered summer 2011, on the plantar fascia ligament of the same left foot, that i'm waiting on getting examined closer after taking ultrasound in fall of 2011. Also since around the time of the ultrasound my leg has fallen more or less half-asleep from the hip down, to the point where i can not sit in a chair, or stand still upright, but have to either lie down or walk around.

I can not remember if i had this dream prior or after this was discovered. So it might just have been the irritating feeling in the leg/foot that caused it.

But i am a christian that believes in Jesus Christ, and i know the Bible talks about 'beings' that are not of the good kind. So i thought i would check it out, if only to see if someone had had a similar experience, and the first google search led me to this page.

I have not had any such experience prior or after this one, but it could very well have been sleep paralysis.

If you have some thoughts you'd like to share surrounding this, please send me an e-mail on maybeim[att]techie.com , you don't have to leave a name, or leave a comment here for me if that is possible. I'm quite puzzled by this.

I don't know what this is...
by: Miranda

I'm relieved to know that there's others out there that have the same problem as me. I hate to experience these types of things, especially when I'm at the age of 17.
I'm always scared to fall asleep at night, because when I do, I feel like there's something watching me on the left side of my bed. I always sleep facing the right of my wall with the covers over me, because I'm always scared to see what is watching me. I can't describe what it is, but everyday I see a shadowy figure either in my house, my room, or at school. Sometimes I even see it more than once in my dreams, as if this demonic shadow is attached to me or something. Few months passed, and everytime I fall asleep, I have these dreams that I can never understand; I'm in the dark and I can't find my way out, and I feel that shadow following me from behind and touching me as I go to God knows where. It either hits me (pinches, punches, or flicks) my arm or leg, or even scratches me on the stomach or neck. Once I wake up (this never fails) I wake up with a bunch of bruises or long cuts. My mom tells me that it must've been from my cats or my dog previously before I went to bed, but they never scratch me or give me any of those types of bruises.
I fear that this thing is really real, since technically my mom has experienced some activity around the house last friday afternoon while she was on her day off. She also saw the shadowy figure, and someone or something has been throwing one of my cats into the closet and locking them inside. She's the only one there, and it happened twice.
There's also these 2--um, I wouldn't call them little girls--but these little ones that were in more than one of my dreams. Whenever I see them in my dream, I'm always inside this dull dark house and I always see them coming towards me--and they call me "mommy". They even spoke to me in my dream saying that they were Ki and Mi (either that's their real name or I couldn't hear right), but their faces...they looked just like me when I was little! Like a dark and good side of me or something, but I also sometimes see these girls out of my dreams, especially at school.

Before we moved into this house, it was completely blessed from top to bottom, and I truly believe in Jesus Christ--but no matter how hard I try to ignore this thing, it just won't leave me alone. Right now, I feel that it's here watching me, just breathing on me as I type this. I usually hear it breathing; one time I heard it growl at me while I was trying to fall asleep, and even when I'm not asleep, it whispers something abnormal to me or it tries to get my attention by poking my arm, feeling my shoulder, or pulling my hair.

I honestly don't know what type of demon it is or what it wants from me, but for now I named it Tuli.

We're not alone.
by: SouloCutz

(written to my FB friends on February 21, 2012)

The weirdest thing happened while I was trying to sleep earlier. I had sleep paralysis on just my left hand twice. Both times I kept hearing this voice sounding like a robot or something saying numbers. I felt like I was being abducted because not only was my left hand numb it felt like a force was pulling it. I tried to break free the first time and the same thing happened a few seconds later. After breaking free that second time I got up to change my whole body position. Could there really be something among us? Was that just my mind playing tricks? I'm looking this up now.


(Written to my FB Friends today)

Earlier I had another sleep paralysis episode where I can actually see the arms holding me down. A few weeks ago, if you're just tuning in, I had one similar but instead of just holding me down it pulled my left hand as if it were trying to take me somewhere. My friends, I think I may have a demon.

I've always wondered
by: Anonymous

A few times in my life I have had very creepy episodes at night. The only correlation I can find is the times it has happend has always been when I'm extremely tired (exhausted). I've never seen a shadowy figure though. This is what happens. As I'm falling asleep I am aware that something is happening. I have a STRONG sense of being sucked downward and a buzzing sound that starts off low and gets progressively louder. I can't move. Sometimes I'm able to open my eyes which brings me out of it but as soon as my eyes close it starts up again. During these episodes I feel like I'm being swung violently in a circle up in the air and then thrown against the wall. It is so scary. I too, am a Christian and have always wondered if this was a demonic attact or simply physical exhaustion. I've asked people about it and I've never come across anyone who experienced anything like it. I haven't had an episode in years now and I'm grateful. I'm wondering if it is the same thing? I have never seen any figures around my bed. Like I said it has only happend when I've been extremely sleep deprived.

Nightly terrors
by: rk

Good day all

My story begins when I turned 21. My very first experience was a black shadow of a man in my bedroom door. As I lay there awake I asked him what he wanted in my house, not knowing that it was an otherworldly entity. It leaped from the door onto me and held me down for a minute or so, smothering me so that I could not speak or scream. I felt a fear unlike anything I have ever experienced before.
Then the insomnia hit. 3 months and little or no sleep. Soon I started seeing them. Large bat like creatures sitting in the corner of the ceiling or on my headboard, and always the choking feeling. Many times I'd hear the sound of wings, very much like a dragonfly's, only, it would grow very loud and sting my ears so painfully, that I would be driven to tears.
Then the sex, I was so embarrased and would not speak about it. Then they took on the shape of ppl I knew. Walking about in the house, or staring at me while I lay there struggling to be free.
One night as I lay sleeping, a deep dark fear came over me, I turned around in my bed (I slept with the light on for many years since it began) and there, sitting on my bed was what I believe to be Satan. A large figure with a hood covering its face, as black as the darkness of hell. It stared at me with no visible eyes.
At this point, eight years later, I had grown weary of fighting, turned around and curled up into a ball.
Not too long after I was having a nightmare that I was alone in a forest, mist everywhere. In the fog was a wolf creature millimeters from my face. I could smell its breath. As I woke up I heard its growl. There beside my bed lay a burnt body with its hand on my chest, trying to drag me down, possibly with it to hell.

I know this seems far fetched but its not even half of what I've seen. I thank the Lord I found your page and if anyone would like to share what they've experienced, or even pray my email is ramonkroutz@gmail.com. I am a christian and believe in Jesus, the name that has rescued me from these clutches. You may or may not believe me, but I believe there is a purpose for this suffering.

God bless all of you.

I've never actually experienced any of these but i'm
not saying it's not true. Since I've never actually experienced it i can't say if it's true or not but i don't doubt it and frankly won't be surprised if its true. I'm a spiritual guy and believe in the after life. You might wanna check this out, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Light_of_Truth:_The_Grail_Message . I can't really say much but i think these are evil malicious spirits that may either be trying to posses your physical body or just there to cause any sort of harm.

Other Dimesnions
by: Anonymous

I've been told that there are other dimensions/ spheres. We live in the gross material world (earth and all that) then there is the ethereal which is still in the material world but less dense than the gross material. Its the closest to us so its not uncommon to see stuff from there, usually stuff happen there before they happen here so when people foresee an event its from there. There are other dimensions/spheres like that, it gets lighter (possibly heavier as well but i will have to confirm) and for each one we have a different cloak that our spirit/soul wears. The higher above in the spheres the better, means your purer so you will meet purer souls there. I don't want to get into too much detail but it goes into minute detail in this book called in the light of truth: the grail message. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Light_of_Truth:_The_Grail_Message i recommend you buy the book.

What was it really?
by: ANdrew

Hi, I only experienced that phenomenal only once 6 years ago when I was 12, Now I remember I could move normally, and that I was fully awake at the time, in fact it's just when I opened my eyes I saw the figure with it's blue eyes(after feeling a light pressure on my chest) I was wondering if my experience was the same as yours, because I didn't feel any numbness, or "false awake" feeling, and the figure ram away after I opened my eyes.

name
by: ann

i had a lot of experiences not as scary as yours but one that freak me out so bad that i'm still afraid.. what cought my attention here was the time that the entitie told you his name.. so i tried to found out what does it mean or is there someone related named that way and what i found is the meaning of the name darius wich i think the first meaning suits the situation perfectly: Darius is a male given name, etymologically it is the English transliteration of the Persian name, Dariush, its meaning is "HE POSSESSES" or "rich and kingly" wich for what i read is the first goal of the entities.. anyways what happened to me brought me closer to god and that helped me a lot.. sorry for my mistakes but my mother language is spanish.. hope ur ok!

Beliefs about spreading the secret
by: E

I won't talk about my experiences for now, but I was wondering one thing :
I always somehow thought that researching, talking or even thinking about these entities will "make them angry" and make them come.
Has anyone else had these kind of beliefs?? That was something that I just kinda knew (just like we all felt they are evil..). If they are really forces of evil or demons, that beliefs would really suit them, wouldn't you think so?
Thanks for your comments.

So why?
by: Anonymous

I'm shocked you all have had so scary experiences. I experince SP quite often, but I saw a black figure only one time beside my Bed. It didn't had any negative presentation at all, it was like a shadow staring at me. Later it caressed about my cheek and left.
SP is ALWAYS a bad experience to me, but my first meeting with one of these shadows was rather nice than frightening. It may felt pity for a little girl, I will never know ;)

My experences and how to escape sleep paralysis
by: Navitus

About my SP, OBE and shadow people experiences.

I have had many many sleep paralysis moments starting when I was a little kid of maybe 6 or 7 years of age I have not recently had them. Usually it would start with an simple dream that would turn into a nightmare usually one where I was chased by a man with no face then it would turn into Sleep Paralysis time where I would feel like a combination of getting stabbed and when you lose circulation in a part of your body right at my abdomen. It felt like an evil torture I always tried to wake up from.

I have not once seen the shadow people while asleep or in sleep paralysis there are the exception of their appearances in my dreams. In my dreams they sometimes appear, they are the most terrifying creatures I have ever seen or imagined. But the worst nightmare was what I call the underground golden city of evil dream; like the name suggests it was in an underground golden city but it was filled with evil more demonic looking shadow people the whole nightmare was me trying to escape the city. I do recall hazy memories of the shadow people while in sleep paralysis but not enough to be sure. when sleep paralysis starts it's like I enter my own dark secluded chamber sometimes still inside the nightmare I was having at the time all while being aware that I am sleeping and I have to wake up but I still feel the presence of evil even when not in SP. I may seen the shadow people while awake but I can't know for sure.

I have never had any kind of OBE and I have never seen my spirit or soul come out of my body.

Anyways there are 3 methods that I have found that work while in sleep paralysis for me.

1. Wait like a total helpless fool and try to struggle to get out of it, seriously this is the most annoying and worst way to get out of SP.

2. Try to move your hand to your eye lid and open it(Movement is possible during SP but it is hard to achieve). This should wake you up immediately but beware you may get a false wake up and end up fooling yourself because its not very easy to move your arm or hand while in sleep paralysis, it takes strong will to do this.

3. This last method is also a little bit hard. You must move your pelvis up in down. This gives the sensation known as the kick from the movie inception which will immediately wake you up and get you out of Sleep Paralysis also know as SP.

P.S.

You may want to get up immediately and maybe walk or something because after waking up you may fall asleep again and return to your SP nightmare and not even be conscious about having fallen asleep again.

sp experience,dont know wether it's OBE or not
by: Barnley

well i'm still 16 y.o and i've been experiencing this kind situation several times. i wonder why in my dream i had very low level of consciousness and when i experience actually a shadow figure already stand in front of me,it's ALWAYS the same everytime i experience sp. i'm trying to wake but i can't,it's like hallucination that i have awoke,but surrounding still the same with different standing position of that shadow figure. in my dream i still had the same experience about difficulty in moving my limb since it's very heavy
and usually i awake by shouting in my dream,which also occurs in reality too,but in both of dream and reality i only can shout like dying people
i wonder if it's dangerous for my health

Lucid Dream about shadow figure
by: Anonymous

well i've been experiencing lucid dream lately and i wonder if what all i see is shadow figure without eyes / hood, but actually in my dream i'm being transported into different abbandoned building,but what the most frequent is my own bed room.
actually those shadow figures didn't attack me,but i'm always scared so once i tried to grab it,but when i tried to get closer i lose my strength,i fell to my bedroom floor, i still can move my hand to grab it leg,it was a successful attempt,what i feel is THICK BONE.
and the i tried to scream,but i don't have enough power to scream as loud as i can
i ended with my brother awake and tell me to shut,because i was shouting like dying people.
"hoorghhhh" that's what i shout in my dream.
and i also still in my bed,without moving any inches of my body,so i think it has similiarities with Barney story
i wonder wether it's dangerous for my health or not.
looking for your response
thanks

hi, my name is augusto and i have 24 years old,
i've passed for this experience too, they are scary at first, a tall guy and a girl observing me with glowing red eyes while i sleep, this situation still occurs for a many times, i'm a mason so jesus is not a creed of mine. well i've been practiced occultism and witchcraft for a while, and my curiosity is always bigger than my fear, so last month i've tried to speak to them and they responded, they are guiding my research about the occult now, showing me symbols and asking trivial tasks in exchange for this knowledge, like some tatoos i've made and some animals i've killed, the girl asked me to stop seeing my girlfriend, but i'm willingly pay the price, they are good teacher's and not demons or bad at all.

dreams
by: Anonymous

I had a cold and had a dream where I got attacked by a shadowy figure with voided out eyes, they floated toward me from a ship on a black metal sea. The ghosts were shooting poison arrows at my chest. The figure grabbed me and touched my spine with it's claw. Then I heard a loud voice. "I AM. JESUS CHRIST!" The ghost let go of me and looked confused, it let go of my spine and I woke up. The poison arrows were my chest congestion. I threw up after that. Every time I have these weird dreams I pray in the dream and I wake up immediately.

Ghosts in my house
by: Anonymous

Hi, just wanted to touch base and see if anyone has had this experience. My sis and I are seniors after midnight we lay in her new bed reading scriptures and listening to praise music, when a neading started at the foot of the bed you can feel the bed move like a light vibrator message. I picked my foot up and slammed it down and said not in the name of Jesus. It stopped, I went to my bedroom and during the night it started again at the foot of my bed, I tried to ignor the physical movement. Its a tormenting spirit and a harrassing spirit also a spirit of fear. Should we try to take a picture of it? What do you suggest?????

Midnight creature
by:

I've always kept this a secret and tried to forget about it. When i was a kid growing up in Mexico, I remember encountering what seemed to be a black slimy reptilian creature. The best i can do to describe it is it resembled Randall from Monsters Inc. if you can picture that realistically. I remember it as a sort of dream that was all too real. It was pitch black and i remember bieng entranced as though something was calling me. It felt alot like when you realized you were just sleepwalking. Next thing i know i see a shadow crawl on a felled tree and all of a sudden it became visible. I saw the creature just freeze and then it just glared at me with its hideous face. I was paralyzed by fear and shock. After that all i remember is bieng awake and it wasnt like when your normally wake up. My theories now is that it mightve been a demon, something deffinaetly supernatural. Thats the only explanation i could think of. Thinking on it now that im older i know that no 5 year old kid could possibly imagine something that looked so real, I remember it so vividly. Just picture the texture of a salamander but about the size of a big dog and it was slimy black. If anyone has experienced something similiar, ols tell me...

Call Apon Jehovah
by: Anonymous

Jehovah is Gods personal name as pronounced in the English language. Those who call apon it will receive imediate protection from demonic activity, even if only in your mind you say it then he will listen and imediatly the attack will stop. Refer to Proverbs 18:10 where it says the name of Jehovah is a strong tower. Into it the righteous runs and is given protection. Also refer to Psalms 83:18 where it says: That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the most High over all the earth. The Demons shudder at the very mention of Gods name Jehovah. Once you reveive protection you should then start to take preventative measures in your life by identifying things that attract demonic activity, eg Bad music, Movies, Idols, spiritistic items books, pictures, second hand goods of unknown history, etc the list is long, refer to the 10 commandments at Exodus 20:4 to 17. May the True God now be with you who need his help.

The "Choking"
by: Anonymous

The choking your feeling is a reaction of fear. You spiritual beings cannot harm your physical body therefore they couldn't choke you or push on your body, you just feel heavy because you're tired. I've experienced sleep paralysis multiple times and never experienced a single entity. I believe it may have been because I'm a generally positive person with no beliefs clouding my perception. I do have to admit I have felt some sort of evil presence as it happens and sometimes when I'm trying to fall asleep as if it's trying to force me into it.
I feel like your choking feeling is more likely related to the fear of you seeing something that's not of this world, something that isn't supposed to be there.
Calm yourself before you sleep. Believe it or not find yourself a mantra or something. Meditate. As I've seen in this post it seems to be that a majority of you are practicing Christians or religious. I'm far from that, and I believe that may be why I've never experienced anything of the sort. Unrest is usually associated with stress which is associated with fear. Mix those with your beliefs and you get what you get. Why do you think people on LSD can have good trips (i.e. rainbows and unicorns) or bad trips (i.e. demons and entities)?

You might be right that there were no books, in the modern sense, with paper between to covers, im not sure. But there were scrolls, tablets and steeles and so on; all perfectly good to write upon. :)

So lets hope that He, who you say do not exist; forgive, chastise or rebuke you, whatever he sees fit for you. Until you realize that you shouldnt be so quick to answer things you know little about.

And it would be a smart choice to hope on the first alternative, and not the latter. :)

Que tal Ann, soy Barney. muchisimas gracias por tú comentario!
Estoy muy bien este año, y tú como estás?

Dejame decirte que en ver el nombre "Darius" a la primera vista en lo que escribiste, mi corazón corrió muy rápido por que por unos momentos pensé que había encontrado alguien quién tambien escuchó el mismo nombre durante esa experiencia de parálisis.

Estoy de acuerdo contigo y si, he buscado en varias ocasiones el significado de ese nombre y aún estudié un poco sobre un rey que se llamaba Darius durante los tiempos bíblicos.

No te preocupes, tú inglés esta bastante bien, el que debe preocuparse soy yo porque el español es mi segundo idioma.

Espero que esas experiencias no te pasen mucho...

Assaults
by: Andy

When i was a kid around 6 to 8 years, i used to see Shadow type figures move around my bedroom sometimes passing through me. Terrifying as it was i managed to get to sleep by repeating the word 'white' over an over.

I don't know if my recent experiences have any connection, but they appear of a different sort.

I am 24 now and in my opinion not very spiritually evolved. However..
As i am falling asleep i feel my imagination transforming into a dream. (a dense cold sense is sometimes felt) Its usually about that time when i feel an external force hit me like a jolt or slam. It is quite painful if only for a fraction. It knocks me out of thought and my reflexes kick in. One thing i feel sure of is that it is an external force that does it. Occasionally in crucial moments before hand i manage to open my eye's to to see an unrecognizable form about a foot above my chest. This form seems to take a couple seconds to disperse from sight. Iv come to believe that whatever is doing this to me doesn't want me to imagine creatively? I getting very concerned because these jolts/slams, are possibly doing serious harm to my brain. (and i get my fair share)

I am out raged about the situation, to suffer this sabotage from a cowardice bullys, taking shots at me from an unprotected and unexplainable position.

Can anyone shed some light on this at all? Any knowledge someone has is appreciated.

I just came across your story by accident. However, I'm completely spooked out. I promise I have gone through the exact same thing. It's been rare through out my life but I had an apartment once that had an evil in it and for the 3 months that I lived there I was pinned down nightly completely utterly terrified. Worst experience in life by far is sp.

My deonic blanketing experiences explained
by: RA

I am going to first say that as a Christian in my soul and heart,(devoted deep down, cannot be shaken)not very church y though.I know who these strong entities are. I always knew I had a spiritual gift,I know now that as a seer for GOD, I comfort others.Yet, I will tell you that I was not infallible to demonic interference. I will share some profound real experiences in hopes to encourage you to trust God with all your heart mind, and being (soul)at all times. The reason I say this is, because if you do not you may become possessed because you are weak willed and self dependent, and they know this. You must be strengthened by the partnership of the holy spirit. DO it! I had a butterfly land on my hand twice when I asked it nicely. I was driving drunk (stupid)years ago and there was a large body of water directly to my left. I fell asleep, I felt this push on my shoulder wake me up before this car in front of me (10 feet in front)killed me, I also felt the wheel tug me to the right(too drunk to do myself). Now for the bad stuff. I was dealing with getting off cocaine and my son who was 14 at the time had been doing Ouija, and acting like he was a demon, pulling butcher knives on me saying he was going to kill me.etc. One night I pulled his bed into my room and talked him to sleep (boring mom)then I dreamed (not a dream) a bright green monster was gripping my right wrist with sharp claws,and I felt weight on my chest,I kept shaking my right arm and mentally saying get off me! Suddenly the lady of the house turned on the light she heard something. Just then the monster jumped of my wrist and she asked if I saw it? I said what? she said this black mass just jumped off me and flew out of the corner of the ceiling. I think this thing jumped off my son and onto me. I have had more experiences. I just want to tell you that We are soul. We are encouraged in the bible to seek peace and pursue it (at the risk of sounding boring) and also to be strong. WITHIN!!!!!!!!!! FAITH that cannot be shaken,I fought that thing and it could not get in cause I was already filled up with faith. Now do you understand?

Protection
by: Anonymous

Many people think that they are saved when they are not, and they are attacked just the same as a nonbeliever. One must have the Holy Spirit in them. It causes a shield of light to surround your body, and anything demonic just bounces off of it. Just ask God to bring His Holy Spirit into you, and you will never be bothered again. I know this because black magicians have told me that they cannot touch some Christians or send demons into them because they have a protective light surrounding them, and I ceased to be attacked when I received the Holy Spirit.
God Bless

by: Anonymous

i read alotta of these comments and the sleep thing happens to me often. i lay down and bout 3 mins later i i feel like somebody is laying on top of me. every single piece of hair on my body is standing up. its soo hard to explain. but for some reason the last 2 times this had happened to me when i finally gained strength to get up i have heard a very creepy mans voice on the tv speaking a different language i think? it was very scary. i just want to kno if this has ever happened to anyone else. i never really talked to anyone cause i dont wanna sound crazy. the first time i ignored it but the 2nd time it happened it was at like 3 in the morn and the sound came from my little brothers room and dora the explorer was on and everyone was sleeping. i have also laid down and i felt and heard a very loud breath right in my ear. all the windows were closed and i had no fan on and when i looked around the room noone was their.. idk whats going on but its pretty scary..

me too
by: Anonymous

from when I can remember I was about eleven years old and I felt a sort of sitting or force on my chest and I couldnt see anything at first but i felt the evil pulling me from within if that makes any sense. Then I remember as a teenager i felt it again it always happened as soon as I would fall asleep and i couldnt move or make a sound but i was screaming out jesus name in my spirit thats the only way i can decribe it. Then the other time when I was about 25 years old and it was happening when I was sleep and my three year old at the time told me she saw a black shadow man with a hood and red eyes looking at us as she was trying to wake me at the exact same time i was in a paralyis state then the last time which was recently I was at my old apartment and i began to fal asleep and I felt that pressure in my chest it was almost like I was somewhere else but still in my bedroom and in the left corner of the ceiling was a black shadow figure of a man which put me in the mind of like spiderman no not literally but the shape of the shadow in the corner of the ceiling looking directly at me as i struggled to scream in my sleep and even wake up I pleaded the blood of jesus . That was this past december.

ive been having these issues for as long as i can remember even my 3-4 year old brother gets it but i in know way think its the occult i met someone when i went away to basic training that was in an occult and he told us about stuff they would do i believe its simply evil spirits in another realm that and i believe the god/s u all believe in are actually just beings not from this world and most of the evils committed in this world is because of religion wars in the name of god? i mean come on i find most religions to be so contradicting but thats just my view

My Sleep Paralysis beliefs...
by: Ricky

I too have recently had a similar experience, just woke up a couple hours ago as well from sleep paralysis. I am also a strong Christian believer, however I no longer attend services nor hardly read my bible...

I am 29/m ever since I could remember I have told my parents "The devil is after me", why I do not know...

What I do know is what just happened, I thought I woke up several times but these feelings were false only to terrify me more...

I could feel energy of an evil nature flowing through my body and recall seeing the color amber flowing through just as fast, It is the opposite of what the holy ghost feels like, and with a color instead, to put it simply my entire body felt immobilized with a force not of this world as if when one's arm falls asleep but all over and very evil.

What I found most terrifying was that this force was stronger than my vocal chords as in I could not scream out no matter how hard I tried...

The second to last element was if I touched my head I could feel a bolt sticking out of each side above my ears, apparently when I grabbed these the force was even stronger...

After several times of believing I was kicking and screaming towards my fiance I saw to men focusing on me and talking as if they were in an altercation about to go bad with me involved...

At this time I screamed to where my fiance woke up and shook me awake, I woke up sweaty, clammy, terrified, panicky, but relieved to be wide awake after only 2 hours of sleep last night.

What made this all too real is that I experienced much of what was described ahead of this comment I am leaving. I knew I was in bed, I knew my fiance was sleeping, I could see down on us and feel the cold air of our A/C unit etc...

Not only do I share this for knowledge, but I too seek answers...Can the human body be haunted like a house and not possessed?

Feel free to email me at Jokerz.Smile@gmail.com if you wish too. I am very open to discussing this to learn more...

Sp my whole life
by: meredith

I grew up in a very during christian house hold. Never missed church. At a very young age I encountered demonic spirits in my room at night. One night in particular I some up to a very talk man and short woman standing in my door way. I knew it was demonic and I was in sheer fear. I was paralyzed from head to toe. I could not move, talk, scream etc..I started to command thademon out of my house in the name of jesus and quotedthe scriptures in my head until It went away. I have had this happen many many times since in my life. I believe that some people are more in tune to the spirit realm. I pray the blood of jesus over my house and family daily and since have not had any encounters. Where the Lord is the devil can not be!!

by: Jeff

im 17yrs old, ive been having these nightmares of these figures ever since i was younger i recall an instance when i was 4 where i was in my parents bed with my older brother and he was sound asleep and a dark shadow crept around the bottom of the bed and i was fighting to scream but not a word came out. since i turned 15 for two yrs the nightmares have been happening often, i fall into a almost inbetween sleep and reality i see everything in my room as if it were real. it is the most horrific thing i endure. i woke up from one of these nightmares and heard a voice tell me "you are going to die" im not sure if i was still in the state of sp but i heard it as if it were crystal clear. that night after waking up i was frightened of everything around me, due to the fact it was so real, the nightmare. i am writing now because i just woke up from one of these episodes. it was different though, because my door crept open and i felt a demonic or devilish presence and it felt as tho my spirit were taken out of my chest. earlier in the dream i remember seeing almost above myself throwing up into a toilet in my bathroom for no reason then calling my mom then waking up into the door creeping open. these nightmares in my case can be triggered by drinking arizona ice tea before i sleep im guessing from the caffene.. these nightmares have really effected my performance in school due to lack of sleep, i have trouble sleeping in my own bed because im scared to. i can go to sleep for 5 minutes then fall into sp. its something that is difficult to deal with, but it is something you must realize is JUST A DREAM! tell yourself instead of trying to move to "go away" if you see a shadow figure because your in control of your thoughts. i have been scared to the point ive stayed up for almost 3 days and many days with either an hour or less of sleep. try to clear your thoughts and worries before you sleep.

evil forces attaking on your sleep
by: Juan

Desde que era un niño queria encontrar la verdad y eso me a dado muchas experincias buenas y malas tanbien. No soy religioso pero me deleito en las cosas espirituales, se que existe DIOS y todo probiene por medio de el ,hay muchas experincias no muy agradables que nos pasan para nuestro progreso personal y otras por meter las narises donde no nos corresponde y tenemos que sufrir la consecuencia de eso, quiero relatar mis experiecias sobre el tema de sleep paralysis, lucid dreams ,false awakes and evil foces attacking me.
I want to start with evil forces attacking me, the first time it was when i was trying to make a change in my life and live a more spiritual life according to my limited understanding, one night i was sleeping face up and i could see the room but I could not move or speak then i felt that someone jump on my chest and start to slapping my face real fast at this point i was in terror ,I try to scream at my cusin that was sleeping across from my bed and i can clearly see him but no sound would come out of me, then in my on head i said in the name of Jesus be gone ,I soon as i said the pressure of my chest left and I recover control of my body it was the scariest thing ever happen to me at the time. The second time i was trying to go to sleep face down (this was years after the first time i was married with 2 kids) then I thought to my self Juan you forgot to pray then i heard some one why don't you pray to the devil instead then i said no i only pray to my heavenly father (i probably sound like a nut job by now but is the true) then I felt like someone grab me by my hair and pull me half way out of my body (i can see my self laid in bed face down) I could hear someone luke he was talking in slow motion i did not understand anything and i also heard like people were opening doors with a svranchie sound, this time i was not afraid and i didnt fight it and I repeat the same words as before, he left me but before he did he laugh right next to my ear my spirt drop to my body and i can move again. The 3rd time happen 6 years after , i was sleeping on my left side the for some odd reason I start to feel scared for no logic reason then I said to my self don't be afraid cause when you do the devil win then i felt someone embrace from behind and couldn't move I quickly repeat the words I said before and he left but this time a heard a voice in my head never to be afraid because there is an Angel per person watching over us.....this were not sleep paralysis , I hope some one can relate to my experiecias

This is interesting . . .
by: Anonymous

Interesting, I myself had an encounter. At 4:16 am (remembered the time because of how freaky the phenomena was). I usually wake to get some time for breakfast before school (In 2006 I was 16 atm). I have a curtain on my doorway instead of a door. I turned on my lamp and expected to see my grandma in the doorway when I heard something open it and there I saw red eyes with blue irises staring at me. I could feel it was reading my mind so I told it in my head 'I know you are reading my thoughts and you are only craving attention but unfortunately you have picked the wrong person. I like all creations of God whether they are good or turned evil. If you really want to hurt me go ahead, otherwise pls leave.' Its eyes widened as if surprised and it scrambled off.

Continuation of 'This is Interesting . . . '
by: Anonymous

. . . Also to add, this thing would played pranks on me and knew how to switch power in the house on and off using the circuit breaker. It would only play pranks when I was the only one conscious or around. (This explains why some people blame mental illness for activities). Christ is the suggested way to keep this from you. Stay with a positive belief. I have also noticed the activities shrunk greatly when I met my husband in high school (which I don't know why - maybe happiness?) Whatever the case heed others' warning and keep from the dark stuff unless you know what you are doing cause it does get serious. Get professional help if things still happen even when everything else is said and done.

Demonic Attack
by: Kevin L.

Fellows, you are all under demonic attack. Satan is attempting to prevent you from doing something. Yes there is a spirit realm, unfortunately, most of us are not able to view into it and keep our sanity. Pray daily, because I believe that Satan wants to affect your relationship with Christ… Yes, I have had sp. It’s not a good feeling. I have seen people walking through my bedroom like they were natural people. I do not and have never done drugs or made a habit of being drunk even though I did drink socially at one point during my younger years. I can tell you something that may help! Read the bible daily! Especially, read and ponder on Psalms 51 and 91. This will help you to overcome your attacks. You don’t have anything to lose, if you prove me wrong but you won’t. Be Blessed.

Grigori
by: Oddfellow

Its re assuring to hear so many people have similar experiences. Regardless of what you believe shadow people can't hurt you and fighting the choking feeling or attacks and feeling of dread are counter productive. BEST THING TO DO is remember, if you can, these experiences can't harm you physically mentally or spiritually and you wont suffocate. Fighting the paralysis makes you panic more and thinking they are demons or something will only add to the terror. There is no heaven or hell outside of your own mind.

It happened to me too
by: Nia

Hey there, my name is Nia, I'm from Romania and I've been experiencing SP since I was about 14. Fortunately, these experiences stopped when I was about 18, but 4 years of sleepless nights changed me for ever. I used to be a very sociable outgoing girl, but I feel that the demons sucked all the life from me and turned me into an evil girl who joins watching horror scenes and who hates everybody. As I said before, the SP's stopped when I was about 18, unexplainable. I have to mention the fact that I had that experiences only in one house, in other places having no problem in encountering SP's. Lately, I began remembering about these horrible moments from my life ( because I was convinced that I was just crazy and I obliged myself to forget all these moments and to think they never happened, that they were not real), and I'm afraid the SP's will appear again. I am not religious, I became an atheist because of the SP's because I was praying for help every single day, but I got no help, things getting worse. I am very thankful that I discovered this website, it feels great to know that other people lived what I lived, and I feel understood. It's terrible to tell my parents what I've been gone through and my father to take me to the hospital for insane people. I think that these demons attack weak people, because since I became a stron g woman, I didn't encounter any other demons. And I hope I will never have again! It almost drove me to suicide, being very desperate. Be strong my friends, be strong! All the best!

I had a similar experience when I was younger
by: Anonymous

When I was young, this shadowy bishop like figure would walk out of my closet. I would normally hide under the bankets and it would leave until one day. That one day, I had gained the courage to fight the shadow and watch it disappear. I let it get closer, and closer till it finally held out its right arm. That scared me right under the covers. I never have seen this figure after that. These occurences always happened on a Sunday morning, right after I would wake up. I told this story at a friend's, and his fireplace went out after the words "I never saw it again."

Resisting the devil
by: Anonymous

I read your story and some of the comments and it sounds like it can be a very scary time. I do agree that there is a spiritual realm that we cannot see. I do not believe that its God's will for us to be tormented by demons and we do have power and authority over them because greater is He that is within us than he who is in the world. How about getting an Audio bible and playing it in your bedroom the whole night. The Word of God spoken in your home will drive the enemy away. Play worship music too all night. REBUKE that devil and RESIST him by living a holy life and he will flee from you. I pray that you all get God's peace in your life. Amen.

I can top it
by: Tommy

I am agnostic. My new girlfriend is as I call her....Hells christian. She has a devout love of god and Jesus but she made a pact with a dark one. It is with her always. The price she paid is she lost her ability to have real emotions. Her therapists are always in awe of her. They've mever seen anything like her. Because of her and her friend, I am starting to believe. I am just afraid of what it could do to her. She's considering a nunnery until it leaves, but what can she do if it wont leave?

agnostic, new girlfriend pt 1
by: Texas

I'm not an expert. Thought I should let you know I'm not claiming to be a source of authority. Yet, I believe in Jesus Christ, the awesome power in His name and the authority He has over all things including the spiritual word. I've had terrifying experiences every-so-often for most of my life, most of which I now understand/believe to have been aimed at misguiding my belief system and getting me off my spiritual path.

I can't know much about your specific situation, but I do firmly believe Jesus Christ has authority over darkness. If she is 100% willing to submit to the power of Jesus Christ and have a priest or person of the Christian Faith lay hands upon her with intent to exorcise the dark entity... the power of Jesus Christ will prevail. If even an exorcism or laying of hands fails, I would be very concerned that she is unwilling to let this evil leave.

Seek help. Don't wait. Be alert. The situation you describe could very well be intended to lure you into something dark. Like I said I couldn't know, and I'm not trying to judge her. She very well could need your help.

I never understood the idea behind the saying "a wolf in sheep's clothing" (search biblical scripture if you're interested) until I met a particular person in life. Someone who sounds similar to your girlfriend. I always thought if a person claims Christ, certainly they are "good" and have "good intentions." Then I read biblical passages about such "wolves" in the bible and put deep thought into the passages. Did you know it was the "super religious" (at least outwardly) who conspired to have Jesus Christ killed? There are in fact false prophets and people who claim to be religious living among us who have very ill intentions. It is hard to accept, but when I re-read biblical passages as an adult I found so many mentions/warnings about these "wolves."

for Tommy the agnostic w/ new GF pt 2
by: Texas

I am spending my time writing to you as I also am experiencing the negative impact of dark forces at work, and understand how confusing it must be for you. It's odd that this is the path which had brought you to the brink of belief in Christ;but for some people seeing is believing.

First and foremost, please reflect upon the situation and consider letting Christ into your life. His spirit will guide you through this very difficult situation and will shine a light upon the path in which you should take to resolve this.

Please don't attempt all of this alone. If what you said is true and not a joke...you need to seek help from the community of Christ. If she loves the God the Father and truly loves Jesus Christ yet cannot break this pact alone, she needs to be exorcised.

From what I know, Catholic Priests take exorcisms seriously. I know how difficult it is asking for help, let alone even talking about this as even many people of Faith will question you/just not understand. For her sake, and your own-- as I am concerned you have already become entangled in this--please seek help from a strong believer who can guide you through this.

No matter what-- GOD is in control and Jesus reigns. Darkness flees from light and the mere name of Jesus Christ has the power to drive away dark forces.

I understand where agnostics are coming from when they have no experience on which to base deeper beliefs. This is the understanding I've gained through my experiences: Evil exists. I have seen it, I've felt it, I've been hurt emotionally, damaged spiritually and even physically injured by dark forces. How does good still exists when we are all sinners--when we have all made bad, perhaps even "evil" choices in life? How does LOVE still exists in this life, when the forces of evil are so strong and widespread? You'll find Murder, greed, and lust in any culture yet you'll also find the beautiful innocence of a child and the unexplainable LOVE we can capable of feeling for one another. The good that remains here on earth despite all the evil around us-- that is GOD--that is what's left of his beautiful Creation. Satan has come to destroy (evil stuff mentioned) but satan will never destroy the work of Jesus Christ.

for Tommy the agnostic w/ new GF pt 3
by: Texas

Make sure your girlfriend gets help from a Priest and if she continues to refuse, you should part ways, pray for her and pray for your cleansing from this. Continuous refusal to part ways with this evil force signifies her preference of darkness over light---demonic forces over Jesus Christ. That is not something you should continue to connect yourself with...

You said yourself, what makes perfect sense to me...she paid the price of losing her emotions. She can't LOVE, she's been robbed of our greatest gift. This means she can't LOVE you. How could she prioritize your safety and spiritual welfare if she can't and doesn't love you? How can you believe anything she's saying if she's so entangled in darkness that she can't love you?

I will be praying for both of you. Bring Jesus to this battleground and you'll come out ok.

(to the admin, I'm sorry these somehow double posted, perhaps you can delete the duplicates. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences. This is a great outlet for such a hush-hush issue no one seems to want to talk about)

agnostic w gf
by: Tommy

Thanks for your reply. This is no joke. As our relationship goes on, she gives me more details. She said she is looking for something and it is not evil. The fallen angel has protected her from physical and emotional harm. She has few friends and has become very attached to me since I am receptive and numb to supernatural events. (my ex gf had a ghost that pretty much lived with us). My current gf has gifts that are impressive to watch. With a touch, she can tell you if you are currently being lunished by god, or about to be. She can also tell what evils you have done since her last contact with you. She is constantly checking up on me like this since she has trust issues. She shows no emotions. Like Spock, logic and complete supression of emotion drives her. She has the beauty of a christian and humanitarian and the evil of a demon on a mission. I want to help, but not sure how.

Jul 11, 2012
For Tommy
by: Texas

Please realize she is NOT doing any of these future forecasts herself and she is NOT capable of knowing the things that you do alone. Anything supernatural is NOT part of your girlfriend. The supernatural comes through us--we are just the outlet. For some, the Holy Spirit can guide our words and direct others to the light. For others, dark forces "guides" can use our bodies/minds for their own purposes. I don't like to use this word due to the stigma but what your describing is an agreed demonic possession.

That information she "knows" is being collected from demonic forces, and it seems pretty clear you now have something with you all the time per her request. She could bring up your attempt to reach out here (help her/understand her) and try to convince you you she doesn't need help or she's not in any danger. This dark force has protected her you say? Protected her from emotional and physical harm? Maybe she was abused or neglected? From an outsiders perceptive--she may have been an easy target. She was in a bad place in life when she accepted this "bond." Maybe she wanted to feel special, important or just safe and this force took advantage of that need she had.

It doesn't seem like she's being protected, it seems like she's being USED. How is stealing someone's JOY, ability to LOVE or the experience of HUMANITY helping or protecting? Satan came to earth to kill, steal and destroy.

You need to ask Jesus Christ to guide you through this situation. What a way to come to Christ--nevertheless--you can't get through this on your own. Neither can she.

All I can think to tell her is that she IS special for who SHE is, without supernatural forecasting, or whatever. GOD created her, GOD created the most beautiful things about her, of which she doubts and may have forgotten. Stealing her emotions is the same as ENDING HER LIFE, as she cannot LOVE. Again she CANNOT LOVE. The GREATEST JOY IS LOVE.

Jul 11, 2012
for Tommy pt2
by: Texas


If this force is actually "protecting her" it would care about her. If it cares about her, it would want to do what's in her best interest. If her best interest has now become that she desires freedom and release, then it would release her. If it is as easy as her asking it to leave, great. Unfortunately, I highly doubt this force cares about her at all and don't think it would ever put her first.

I have always wondered if a fallen angel could be forgiven. I wouldn't know. I just believe GOD created both humans and angels and GOD is capable of forgiving us through Jesus Christ. This sounds certifiably insane but I'm guessing you're in a place where you'll read it anyway-- despite what it/she will tell you--they both need to remember the LOVE that JESUS CHRIST has for all of creation.

I am only human so I can't "understand" this.

I pray that everyone involved makes it out ok.

You know the bible calls Satan the enemy. It also teaches us that we should pray for our enemies. I don't think I fully realized the depth in that truth until reading your story and praying for you both.

I think if we can learn to forgive our enemies we can learn to truly LOVE as Christ tried to teach us.

That's huge. People are going to read this and get totally confused. Oh well it was meant for you Tommy.

touched by everyone's struggles
by: Texas

For the young woman who wrote in June and everyone else who feels depressed about this experiences...

It took me a LONG time to accept these forces were in fact DARK. I tried to rationalize, I tried to justify, I tried to forget and suppress.

Months would go by without an attack or experience and I'd start
to kind-of-forget the terror and it became easier to brush off as delirium or nightmares (I never really believed it was but I tried to.)

These experiences always happened at times in my life where I was vulnerable to confusion. I've felt demonic suppression, been thrown off my bed, had SP and even waking paralysis. I have seen orbs, bright lights, and visions (wide awake pinching myself.) I have been physically harmed. For months I'd wake up with unexplained bruises all over my legs. I have NO mental illness (aside from the periods of depression I would go through following the attacks) and I have no major health issues that would cause this. I also DO NOT do any drugs.

So, as I'm sure you are all experiencing-- talking about these things is very difficult as is sounds unbelievable to anyone who hasn't gone through it. I wouldn't understand or really be able to believe someone if I hadn't gone through it myself...

I don't know what you mean by "neo." I don't have much additional input aside from-- her birthday comes and this is not over--exorcism to save her. She doesn't agree or want to, move on. Whatever this is, it is NOT good and will take you with it.

It is often said fallen angels lose their wings, so your mention of it is interesting. I can understand how all of this is intriguing, as you're learning things we are really not supposed to know in this life. Just pray for your own protection(and hers) and try to keep in mind at all times how dangerous this is and how it needs to end asap.

You already know it is with her always, thus you understand you cannot hide anything you do or intend to do. Just try to keep this in mind as well.

My heart goes out to both of you as this is a situation in which there is no reference guide. Humans make mistakes, and I believe we can be forgiven. I'll keep you both in my prayers.

She is precious is the eyes of God. God LOVES her. Her inability to love keeps her from putting Christ first--which is the only answer and only solution to release her from this captivity.

May God shine His light upon this situation.

Agnostic with GF
by: Tommy

Just an update. I agree that my gf is dragging me down. I had an incident this morning that confirms it. She cares about nothing but a childish vendetta against God. Funny thing about all this is, it has done little or nothing to change my beliefs. I wanted to know if you had a contact I could reach that was SUPER knowlegable about all this. From what I've seen, the run of the mill pastor or reverend is a rank amatuer that wont be able to deal with this level of manifestation. No kidding, this is biblical. Exorcism is out of the question because she planned this all out thoroughly enough to put it in the bargain that if this thing gets removed before her birthday in 2012, it will kill her. I don't want to carry this conversation any more on a public forum, and have probably shared too much as is. Any help identifying or counteracting this thing is needed. She is salvagable and in need of forgiveness. I know deep down she wants to change.

SP?
by: Anonymous

When I was a child I woke up and saw two huge glowing yellow eyes staring at me, I don't remember much but I was so scared I tried screaming but couldn't, I hid under my duvet and refused to look again.. I don't remember any kind of paralysis but I felt cold all of a sudden and my window opened and for a brief moment felt like I was flying, it was a horrible experience and I've never forgotten it... I was wondering if that was to do with this stuff or something different? Can anybody help?

THE TRUTH
by: Anonymous

I had similiar dreams all my life i couldnt wake up and i felt like i was awake and i got choked and just now it happend again but i wasent scared i just heard souls yelling in my ear. The reason why i wasent scared is because im an intercessor now for THE LORD JESUS we intercede in the spiritual realm for the kingdom of God if you have dreams like this you can become a warrior for the Kingdom of God he put it in you to know about the spiritual realm

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.International Standard Version(©2008) Ephesians 6:12

We have power in us we can bind and rebuke demons in the name os Jesus Christ we also have spiritual gifts of tongues prophesy ect its in the bible Jesus wants us to use it Angels also dont have free will we command them to protect us
and they will!

Ps the spiritual realm is very real

the truth about the shadow
by: Anonymous

Generaly jinn or demons dont ask permision to inter any body,what most of you saying is build on just theories and /or illusion,thier is nothing called human spirit ,when human die the spirit leave to the other diminsion and never appear to the three diminsion world,what you see is always either jinn or kind of demons they are different in how they appear ,yes it is hard for jinn (jinn is kind of demonic entity,some are bilievers and most are nunbilievers in God) to inter the human diminsion or to appear for him although many wich,but in few cases for many reasons like when human give him the thourity or the code or magic or wija board or when human violate his place then he might appear and inter the human dimention,youhave also pure demons wich they comefrom the satan or azzaziel or shaytn or the devil or the diabolo he have many names but he is the father of his pure evil dark race ,they appear mostly as black shadow becz they are made of smoky fire and not from heavy cold electro waves like the jinn,remember dear humans when ever you feel or see any thing real,what ever it is surely it is not good for you in any way,thier is secret word well protect you and make the unseen entity scare or run a way ,i cant say it in publicly to not be used in rong way but thier is wepon in your hand wich God gave it toyou to scare us,i know i breakmy lows and rules when i say it but i hope with this God well reward me and forgive me for what i done before,if any human need help or suffer any unexplainable thing just write me(safty@gmx.ch)sorry for my english,yours zodda

My experience
by: Ryan H

I am a reborn christian for about 2 years , but for the last year or so i lost my faith snd gave up and turned really bitter, Ive had wired dreams and a very wired experiences since loosing faith, I have had around 3 or 2 dreams of a dirty nature and I felt physically then the ones I had after that were evil and had a lot of the theme of death and suffering of myself in them which would normally end up with me waking up after being shot or tortured in a dream, never had any about daemons, but I did have sonthing wired happen like 1 day ago, I was in my brothers room and I closed my eyes and put my hands over my face, I then saw really evil and sinister looking faces, and other evil things that I don't want to discuss, I then thought what I seen was a daemon or Satan, I can't really describe Wat it looked like but it looked evil, it was like a wrinkly scale looking thing looking straight st me sitting somwhere, now these thing I saw were in black and white and sometimes in like s pale maroon red colour. As soon as this happened I prayed and rebuked Satan in the name of Jesus, now I don't know if this is a wake up call that is invented to show me if I continued to rebel where and Wat I would be seeing in reality, but I just praise god that I'm starting to acknowledge him again, praise god.

It was real!
by: Terri

I had gone to bed late and the last time I looked at the clock was about 2:15am. The next thing I knew my eyes popped open because I heard an intense swishing. I wanted to turn over and look in the direction of the sound in my room; however, I was unable to move. I tried to scream and nothing would come out of my mouth but my mouth was moving. Finally I got one word out...called out the name of a dog I had as a child...thinking that whatever/whomever was in the room would leave thinking the dog would get them. As soon as I did that...a dark shadowy thing came up behind me in the bed and draped what looked kind of like what may have been a veily arm over me. I used all my might and could lift my right arm and grabbed at the arm...there was nothing there! Then I could suddenly turn over and sit up in bed. I looked all around the room and there was nothing there. I grabbed my droid phone off the nightstand and turned on it's entity sensor (something I got when I purchased the phone...just for fun) and it shot up immediately to over 2000 with the red lights blinking.Then within a matter of micro-seconds it seemed...it zoomed down to 200 before my eyes. This verified to me that what happened to me was NOT a dream. I knew I was awake but never had an experience like that before!

OBE's
by: Anonymous

I have experienced a lot of these things also - they started in 1999 and I eventually came to understand and control it by reading the trilogy of books by Robert Monroe on Out of Body Experiences.

If you want to understand it in even great detail there are books by Thomas Campbell - My Big Toe.

I would suggest anyone dealing with this to read Robert Monroe's books to begin with, some more info on him here:

Sleep Paralysis
by: JP

I'm only half way through reading some of these experiences and I had to skip ahead and leave a comment because of how similar some of them where to mine.

Please e-mail me anytime if anybody wants to talk and speculate about these strange occurrences, rawsaysimapope@gmail.com

I had my first Sleep Paralysis experience last year and it only occurred after I had been reading online about abduction experiences etc., I had three at this point then they stopped until this week when I had another one. Not sure if it's been a full year yet but it may have been.

I had recently been reading a lot about the Occult Aleister Crowley, Grimoires, SL Mathers etc. I'm not sure if this is directly related but maybe their are some sort of astral beings who can target certain thought patterns within people who are open to the idea of Demons.

I love the idea one post above says above that it's Reptilians and they're targeting people who may be threats. I'd be honoured to be considered a danger. Whether it's Reptilians or Reptilians are just one of the forms these beings can't present themselves as it's all interesting to me.

I've never been religious although I can't dismiss any possibilities at all, I'm even open to some of Scientology's ideas. I like to remain as neutral as possible because in the words of the great late Robert Anton Wilson, "Only the Madman is absolutely sure."

I had a false awakening last year and was in my own bed I looked over the side to see if my Dad was awake as he'd passed out on the floor. Instead of seeing my father however a small child like shadow entity pure pitch black darkness no features at all popped up instead and it sprung at me instantly. It held my quilt over my face and continued to beat me violently until I woke up into Sleep Paralysis.

Around about this time I had another SP experience I never saw anything I don't even think I could open my eyes this time but I felt as if something was about to happen. I kept screaming in my head, "You don't have my consent!" "Get tae fuck" lol you've all been there I'm sure you can imagine some of the colourful language I used in my mind.

Continuation of Above^ My Experiences
by: JP

Eventually these experiences stopped and I stopped giving the whole thing too much thought. Recently after getting into some of the Occult stuff I woke up into a false awakening and a large black shadow entity more wide than tall was standing with two very piercing eyes but I'm unsure what color they were. I looked at it and unsure why I turned my hand into the shape of a gun and aimed it at the dark figure upon pulling the imaginary trigger I woke up terrified, much more scared than I was in the dream. Then a few nights ago I was having a strange dream that I was in a large house with some other females around my age I can't remember all the details but I was talking to one of the girls about demons and we both went to a cupboard and opened it up, as soon as I opened the cupboard I awoke into sleep paralysis. I felt as if my arms were frozen in motion but I couldn't see them to make sure. I couldn't speak but earlier that night I had read that music brings it to an end instantly if you're listening to it, the room was silent so I instead started singing in my mind, Born to be Wild for some reason lol I don't know why. I was expecting instantaneously to wake up but it didn't work. I could see my room door while I was in SP and felt like something was about to enter I remember thinking, "I don't want to fucking see you!" I eventually woke up quite freaked out, tried to relax myself and enjoyed some of the cheesy violence Friday The 13th Part 8 Jason Takes Manhattan has to offer.

To the above posters who have mentioned seeing Satan what was his appearance like to you?

I recently, before I got deep into the Occult books I've been reading, saw a red skinned male when I closed my eyes. This was while I was wide awake and it was a very clear vivid image of a red skinned mischievously smiling man with pitch black hair and eye brows. He had this wide strange grin that I couldn't tell if it was playful or mischievous, instead of horns in the traditional sense there was an inverted triangle in between his eye brows, pure golden triangle almost as if where I'd imagine my pineal gland to be when I visualise my third eye opening. Maybe this vision is what spurred me to start reading up on these books.

Documentary
by: Cassie

I am 31 years old and experienced sleep paralysis for the first time about 6 wks ago. I was unaware of it up to that point but have subsequently realised it has happened at least once to the majority of my friends and family. I'm in Ireland. I have done a little research since my first experience and came across an extremely helpful interview with a leading expert. At the end of this interview there is a link to a documentary on SP. If you are extremely frightened by your experiences and/or finding it difficult to sleep then I would not recommend watching the documentary. Some of it is unnecessarily dramatized with music etc. I didn't read all of the comments so apologies if this has already been mentioned.

To Mr. Logical...
by: Clara

It was a June evening at 7 pm. (8 yrs ago)I was lying in bed resting with my eyes closed next to my 2 mos. old son. Suddenly I become aware of a presence hovering over me. I didn't try to open my eyes, I didn't try to move, I didn't try to talk because I didn't want to wake up the baby. I just felt that entity there. It felt like something very evil. It didn't touch me but I felt like it wanted to harm me, maybe not physically. I believe in God and so my reaction was to start praying in my mind asking for protection from that thing. In my mind I also started singing hymns. Within minutes, I felt that thing leave. I didn't hop out of bed,I continued to lie there resting.

They are out there
by: Lilith

I have had astral projections since childhood. Many many dreams but one that sticks with me the most is where I looked up into the sky and flew up into a constellation. Upon being there I made myself invisible but was peeking behind stuff. Don't know what stuff it was because I realize it didn't exist on earth. there were aliens. They were putting this "chip" into the neck of human beings that were up there. Somehow they seen me even though I was invisible. I tried to get away but they could see my shadow. Somehow escaped. I was scared but it was very very real.
There was another time I lie in bed and wasn't asleep yet but was in that "state". I felt the covers move....I looked out the window but was still lying with my eyes closed, there were glowing eyes peering at me. I was paralyzed. My pajamas were off when I awoke and I had marks across my chest like claws. Nobody ever believes me when this stuff happens to me. And no, I do not do drugs either, or drink.

wow, I experience the exact same thing!
by: Anonymous

It's crazy. As I read your post I was like this is exactly what happens to me. I've had many so experiences where I accidently came out my body and when I think I'm awake only to see its just a trick of evil spirits. I have also experienced them appearing as my husband or just other ppl. before an attack to get my guard down. What led me to your post was the dream I just had about 1hour ago.I dreamt I was in my room laying down and this girl who I didn't know was just talking to me. I don't remember about what, anyway she was soon floating in the air and then sitting on my stomach. I was like oh no you don't! Me and my husband are expecting our first child, so wasn't having it. I told it to get off my stomach in the name of Jesus and she disappeared. But then I heard my door knob turning. My body was paralyzed. But I was saying leave in the name of Jesus. But then my mouth paralyzed. So then I felt a hand on my shoulder and see a black figure floating above me. It had the figure of a woman. I couldn't move my mouth so I.prayed in the spirit! She left and i woke. I just moved into a new home so today I will be praying and annointing my home with oil. An awesome book to read if you deal with spirits is, Prayers that rout demons, by john eckhardt! It's powerful. Anyway God bless!

Shadow People and dark Demonic Entities During Sleep Paralysis
by: Anonymous

I have had numerous encounters of my own, I do not take drugs have only drank a few times this year and I am a LaVeyan Satanist.

the first that I remember, is when I was young sleeping, awaking to see a figure down the hall slowly makeing its way towards me, going on to hold its hand out as if it was reaching out to me and then sucking in all the air around and from within me i felt the room get cold and i tryed to yell for help but my voice was gone, it began to rush forward and then i tryed calling for help again the answered was called from my mother she ran out to me hitting the figure causing it to evaporate or turn to dust, it was quite strange.

the most recent being on the 9/9/12
during some heavy lucid dreaming i awoke slightly to see a figure standing tall beside my bed looking down upon me, also another tall figure passing through out my room as like it was thinking trying to make a decision, also a smaller figure sitting with its legs crossed on my bed near my head. unlike other comments i have have read i was not met with violence etc... i did not have fear i felt safe enough to reach out to them and to fall asleep full knowing they were there and i feel as if i can feel thier energy some times calling upon them i geuss

another account my mother has told me of what has happened to her... she awoke to chattering or chimes of some sort to find the room filled with a dim red light and a creature as she described sitting on her chest starring her in the eyes and she was unable to breath her words describing as if something was pushing upon her chest not alowing her to breath she now sleeps with a cross beside her bed! a fulse idol of safety! in my opinion haha...

if you need to get a hold of me or just want to chat about these types of things that seemingly most other people think we are crazy just email me at alistair.pace@gmail.com

shadow people
by: Teresa

Hello. I am so glad to have come across this website.
I am looking for answers too. I have experienced this terrifying form of sleep paralasis several times in my life. When it started I was in my early 20's. The first few time i felt woke up gasping for air as if i had been unable to breath on one occasion I felt in a dream state but I coulg feel someone sitting on my chest and they where putting something in my mouth and I couldn't breath. I mentioned it to my doctor and he told me it was sleep apnea probably brought on by stress. Later in my thirties it began happening again shortly after my mother died suddenly. Now the episodes became more terrifying and I could feel great preasure on my chest as if someone where sitting on me and I could feel hands around my neck strangling me....each time i feel awak and my eyes are open. At one point in my life i was separated from my husband and my youngest daughter and I lived with my father for a yr (this is the house I grew up in. Now I had never experienced this growing up in this house but at 3 i saw a disembodied had at another apt where we lived ) When I stayed at my fathers the the atackes became so strong. At night I would lay in bed and I could see several dark figures around me, also there would be flashes of lights all around the room at times. The most terrifying experience was when I woke up paralyzed unable to breath and my eyes where open and right in front of my face looking down at me was this dark entity and his eyes where glowing red and sunk in.....i am alawys unable to speak out....but the state of terror I felt I can not express. I left the house and reconciled with my husband. I wonder if any of the things i experienced could have been caused by the fact that in the house where 3 urns of ashes which was my mom, grandma and a child i had that died at birth/ I havent had any recent experiences buit i still fear that it could happen again.

Spirit War prt2
by: Sentinel

Last word is dont place yourself in unholy places, demons are in large numbers and will follow you and try to destroy you and your families. And never ever invite demons they can actually possess you. Lastly read scriptures if you feel good and understand them you are experience the power of the holy spirit, all good books come from god and all good people do gods work. You may know them by the fruits of thier labours all good come from god all evil come from the devil. Dont bash other peoples religions or beliefs offer the truth you have found if they desire to hear it if not be at peace christ said come follow me he never forced anyone to become a true deciple. As for war I have been fighting this war before I was born and so have you. War in heaven was real but it didnt end satan and a third was cast out of heaven It didnt say the war ended god won a great battle the war continued on to earth and we are born to this world to both fight and be tested. Soldiers of god fight for the souls of mankind you were given this gift to know the truth of the spirit realm do not be afraid this is why they try to destroy you. You have the power to know they exist you have been born with the gift of discernment, or in other words you can discern spirits both living and dead. All of you who have experienced this will understand me when I tell you that when you are around poeple you can feel and tell if they are living a life of evil or good, you can also tell those who have joined satan and fight for his cause, they are dangerous even moreso then the demons you meet in the spirit world be very catious of them. Trust your feelings and instincts you almost never can explain why you feel what you do but you are gifted. God knew you would be strong enough to understand these things pray always and follow gods voice in your heart, serve him and fight his war help others to know the truth and love those who persecute you they cant see what you see. I admire poeple like my wife who dont see and yet she believes with great faith. We were born with spirit sight for a reason embrace it learn as much about the enemy and those who serve the devil. The world is being overun by his tyrants and we may be the only hope the world has left to warn the people .... Christ will come a second time I know it be safe and keep up the good fight

almost everything you've described has happened to me. the shadowy figures, for me it was a man in a red hooded cloak. the false wake ups, even seeing my wife sitting up in our bed, only to wake up and find that she was already awake and no longer in the room. the worst part is not knowing when and why these experiences will occur.

My Experiences, If You like To Talk (616) 634-7575
by: Charlie Brooke

I first experienced this when I was 12 years old, but It didn't fully occure. I was sleeping at my Friends house, and while half asleep I was looking at the Window and saw what I could describe as a Blue Mist coming in through the Window (even though it was closed). It was not able to take hold of me, but I sensed something evil and terrifying about it. I periodically would experience similar things that would only get more insane as I got older. I have experiences it at least 100 times over the last 12 years of my life, and typically it happens more when I am doing what God want's me to do in life.
I've heard words, seen figure and hideous faces with evil eyes, and I've felt absolute emptiness and terror in their visits...but I have learned through them to fight within myself in the face of such terror, and never give up because that is when they can get inside and start to twist you. Also I have learned to trust in God to win the fights I don't know how to win.
The most vivid and scary event was when I woke up upon being Grabbed on my Chest and then a 2nd sudden grab to my legs. Then I was pulled from my Bed and dragged to the Corner of my room where I could see my Body still in bed. Prayer is the only things that has been able to suddenly stop an event, but not always the case...sometimes I have had to just fight and wait it out.
I would say this has contributed most to my belief in God and how He wants us to Live in Peace and show Love...the fact that something comes in my sleep to try and stop me, says more than enough to me that I'm doing something right.
Keep doing what is Right, no matter what Darkness itself will try to do to you, The Sun always rises.

Thanks
by: Anonymous

Thank you for posting this. I have had similar experiences my entire life. They happen so often, that it doesn't even scare me anymore. I have "floated" above my bed also. It has "sucked" me off of my couch. Some times the only thing I can manage to think is "Jesus,Jesus,Jesus!" These attacks are really annoying. I just wish I new why. The presence of evil is definitely there. I hate this is happening to you, but It's nice to know I'm not alone. So thanks again.

none
by: Unknown

I just wanted to get across to you that since you have seen a shadow be wary of the things around you. Because you have seen a shadow in its lowest form. I have done research and among my research I have seen different types of shadows but they all start the same. I leave that to you to decide if you want to look them up in your spare time but I'll assure you this not all shadows can be mean and vicious as people put them out to be. Understand this though most of them are not here to make friends. They are like humans but in a different form. They have their own sets of emotions just like we do but you can never necessarily tell whether they are feeling the emotions you think. I have honestly no clue why those shadows were after you but rest assure they were probably angry with something either about you or your living being in their presence. But I have something else to tell you. Have you ever seen a shadow master?

Similar experience
by: Anonymous

I had something similar happen to me. I kept hearing knocking sounds coming from the desk in my room and also knocking on my door. I definitely felt a presence in the room of something without physical form, I tend to be hyper-sensitive to emotions and people.

The knocking continued for several nights and I knew something strange was happening, I felt fear, but I also like to know what is causing it, which overrides my fear.

Anyway I woke up one night, and I could not move my arms or legs, but I could move my head a little, and floating above me was this darker than black or shadow...Mass of smoke or something, and I managed to fight it off, somehow forcing it through a wall in my room.

Do not confuse these experiences with something of good nature. I am not religious, but it was a deceptive "force".

My daughter woke me up at 7am this morning to tell me there were, 'monsters in our house and she had to hide or leave'... I have experienced paranormal activity but today was really frightning. I dropped her off and I did not sleep last night as things have mysteriously appeared on the floor out of the refrigerator. A half gallon of milk, a whole pack of sliced cheese, I am such a light sleeper and live in a 900 square foot house. My dog did not awake nor did I. My daughter has a morning playmate, Hannah. She is very descriptive about last names and dates. I checked Ancestry.com and this girl existed at this address. My concern is when I had the sleep paralysis episode this morning, is it my fear working in overdrive? I have seen demonic entities before as a small child myself, and I was terrified at what she told me. I shut my eyes this morning on the couch. It was like I was drunk with sleep. I could not fight it. But it was nine am, and light throughout the house. I could almost see gray through my eyelids, and then the image of my house appeared but in black and fuzzy white. I saw a dark shadow peep around the kitchen entrance. I 'awoke' in total fear. Then once again I drifted. Then what I saw as a child, appeared out of the hall. Dark eyes, long face, teeth like a conehead. It smiled. Once again I 'awoke' terrified. I can handle ghostly activity but not evil. For a third time, I drifted. This time, my pillow came around my face and mouth. I was drug to the floor against the wall. I yelled, 'STOP! but nothing was coming out of my mouth but a small hiss... That was it. Up for the day! I am frightened and confused of what to do.....

Evil Sp
by: Anonymous

I too, have had the "evil" demonic entity enter my room and sit on my chest throughout my life, peaking in my teen years. I cannot move or talk. It never talks to me. What I find strange? When i addressed it, stating "Leave me th *&%* alone!" and saying the Lord's prayer and the Hail Mary in EVERY room, and beseching my deceased father and God for help, it got better... Maybe placebo, maybe not.

well..
by: lkb

I have felt it before but it isnt continouse, It happens just the way you said feeling something negative around me even after Im awake but I just ignore it and try not to think about it much I wouldnt Know what to tell you to make it go away completly but I can share my knowledge on my doctrine whitch is real good and you can decide what to do and what not to do. Its to make ur vibration higher and that way keeping away negative energies ok, first of all a vegetarian diet because animals have low vibrations, try to eat healthy as most as u can like no junk food ect.. exercise is good to eliminate toxins from the body and that being said keeping your vibrations in a higher level, try to listen to classic music a relaxing music, try not looking at negative things, (scary movies to much killing porno ect...) One good thing is to wake up at 4 am or 2 hours before the sun rises that momeent is a time to receive alot more energy than any other time of the day. Clean your house daily because bad energies dont enjoy clean enviroments, try to meditate and control your mind and the last but most important thing is to never release your sexual energy (orgasm) because the most powerful way to get you vibrations up is by not doing so and Cultivating and trans-mutating sexual energy!

Dark figure
by: Crystal

I Have had some of the same things happen as i have been reading on this site. I think it started quite a few years ago when i still lived at home with my parents. i was the only person in the house to have ever seen the tall dark figure and he had said my name in my ear when laying in bed one time as well. That was the scariest moment of my life at that point when it comes to paranormal or whatever it is going on. When i lived alone in my apartment i had those vivid dreams where you wake up, truly believing you are awake, and then something triggers you to know you arent. I had that repeat itself about 4 times that same night only for the last time to wake up there was a dark figure in the entryway of my bedroom door and before i could really look at him someone else put my blanket over my head and pinned me down on the bed. no matter how hard i screamed or tried to move nothing happened. There was many years where nothing happened for a while after that. I would still feel like there was someone in the house when no one was there. or feel a presence watching me. But nothing as bad as before. Now its been many more years and they are now worse again. I live with my Boyfriend and whenever he leaves for work in the morning and can sleep in a little while longer before i have to get up to get ready for work i get attacked by some unseen force. It feels so real and yet after it happens i wake up for real. kind of like the dreams from before where i would wake up thinking i was actually awake just to find out i really wasnt. Well in the most recent events a dark figure tries to pin me down. a couple times i have been pinned down and its almost a sexual thing, which made me think of Incubus.. but i have never actually been raped yet from this dark figure..although i have always been able to fight him off. This last one which happened last night, i woke up and went to see if the cats were still in the room with me and i saw him standing at the side of my bed, and the moment i screamed he lunged at me and tried pinning me down. Someone had told me to try to get it to tell me its name because if its a demon i can find a way to banish it as long as i know his name. (I myself am not really a religious person. I dont disbelieve but never really truly believed. Im more undecided) But never the less i was fighting him off and trying to make him tell me his name. He didnt tell me his name but i managed to keep him at bay long enough to be ok. i woke up to my alarm clock feeling very scared and sick and tired to my core of this. I Dont know what i can do to get rid of this dark figure. If anyone can help me i would appreciate it. i dont know what to do anymore and im not sleeping well with all this going on all the time. my e-mail addy is sweetie_917@hotmail.com if anyone can help.

Pray in that state whatever religion you are as long as it is to a love source or an aspect of God Jesus, Mary, Buddha, Krishna, Or a Saint etc. or if you have a mantra. I chant Om Namah shivaya and it stops. Been having them since I 2 or 3 years old. Homeopathics helpful and any cleansing or bannishing or intent to bannish or cleanse and eating well and sleeping earlier.:)

This is utterly idiotic

To suggest that you're interacting with demons. I 've had my share of experiences but I never assumed what I saw was real. Come on, reality check time guys. They're not demons, they're figments of your imagination and it's time to deal with a godless reality ffs.

Praying out LOUD
by: Anonymous

Hey guys. I just had my third sleep paralysis/demonic encounter the other night, and I have spent quite awhile reading these comments. I have marveled at how many people have experienced very similar things. I have had the whole "someone is sitting on my chest" thing but the other night was seeing (visually) a woman standing next to my bed. I turned away (I was not physically paralyzed but very very frightened), and began to pray in my head. "In the name of Jesus, the Name above all other names to whom every knee must bow, I command that you leave my home in Jesus' name and with the authority He gave me as his disciple". Upon praying this, I felt this...jolt of electricity hit my entire body at once, like a mack truck. It wasn't painful necessarily but extremely frightening, and I still felt the presence as thick as smoke in my bedroom, even after praying. So I decided to up the ante and prayed the same thing out loud, adding "I am not afraid of you because I have dominion over you through Christ." Again, another shock wave hit me and then I had peace. The thing about demons, guys (or evil spirits/presences, whatever you want to call them; Satan's little minions that attempt to scare us), is that they don't have access to our thoughts. As crazy as you may feel yelling a prayer in the middle of the night you HAVE to. They do not have access to our minds, Christ has not allowed them that but they can hear what we say. And you best believe when you speak Jesus' name and command that they get out of there they are OUT of there. I just thought this was an important point to make as I was perplexed as to why the presence remained after I had ordered it out of my home by praying in my head. I hope this helps some of you guys out...let these instances not dissuade you from God or your faith. Often these attacks come as a result of you doing something right in your walk with God, doing mission work, even something as simple as bringing someone to church. Satan DOES NOT want to see God's Kindgom advance, and he will do whatever God allows him to do (see Job, some things are forbidden) to scare, dissuade, discourage, depress, etc. in order to knock us down to our knees and weaken our faith. I have always had these things happen at times in my life where I was actively seeking to love in Christ's name and show others what that love looks like, and after the other night I realized that I had invited a friend to come to church with me who hadn't been in years, and she LOVED it and will return again next week. That pissed Satan off, and I am proud of that. God is the winner guys, and if He is your master then you have the authority of Christ as a believer. Do not forget that.

MUST READ
by: Dream Interpreter

No human with a sound intellect will believe any of you...until and unless they experience it for themselves more than a few times.

Firstly, let it be clear that neither Jesus nor any historical person is the reason behind your protection from these uncomfortable otherworldly experiences. I'm not saying that because I disbelieve in him, on the contrary, I believe in him, agree with him and favor him. However, it is the Divine Hidden Being (the Heavenly Father, Allah, Brahman, Ahura Mazda, Elohim, YHWH, etc.) who these "shadows" seem to acknowledge and fear.

In all fairness, both masculine and feminine vibes emanate from these strange beings as well as both good and evil.

Only one thing is certain about these creatures; they exist (whether in our subconscious or in the plane of another dimension similar to our own). The question is; how do they have so much power, knowledge and frankly leniency to do what they do?

Being a scientist from Yale University I tend to research, evaluate, verify, repeat and look at things objectively, that is to say, without bias. That's the only way you can discover the reality of any matter.

Dreams, visions, and strange voices conveying revelations all belong to the metaphysical (a plane of existence beyond the physical, material, and tangible)and as such require interpretation. What is the meaning of these occurrences? Sometimes only time can tell.

Interestingly, I have had a multitude of similar vivid experiences whose happenings sometimes materialized. As I am inquisitive by nature, one time (less than a year ago) I had asked for the figure's name but he (masculine) was quite. An unknown young boy next to me on my left told me his name was "Sidr" meaning upper-most or leader or lote-tree very similar to the meaning of Darius. Another time he came to me as "Amir" meaning leader, commander, instruction. He had lifted my left leg and either pulled something out of my foot or put something inside my heel. either way it hurt like A LOT! He was wearing something around his head like a huge hat, turban, or helmet or it could have just been the size of his head (highly doubtful) and was very skinny and short in stature. He had a very powerful presence and I felt like he could crush me with two fingers. The other night someone saw him writing some ancient letters on a baby's head in my house and when they tried to stop him or it, the figure turned them upside down but eventually left them alone.

Obviously it seems like specific people are being singled out or chosen and followed. Seems like they might be marking those they choose or have an eye on...but for what?

I would appreciate collaborating with someone intelligent and open minded but who believes in the Higher Power and hidden realms to do serious research to find out at least commonalities between experiences and people. And unless it is the will of our Creator, we might not get anywhere.

Stop Sleep Paralysis
by: sab201

I had sleep paralysis, real bad ones, a dark entity paralysing my neck, I somehow use my strength to overcome it and I move my neck, the paralysis stops.

There are very bad side effects of this sleep paralysis which is caused by this black entity. I feel like I am weak, drained of energy the next day, sometime could not even walk or stand the day after the event.

At last after a long time I have found the solution to stop this. I do not know if any researchers like Proud have found this solution, but I did. Anyone reading this please pass this message its really very simple. There is no need to say prayers of keep any GOD pictures, they dont work at all. All you have to do is you have to sleep with your head towards the South, East or West directions ONLY. DO not sleep with head towards north, this means you are facing SOUTH which is the demon direction according to HINDU VASTU. SO sleep with head towards SOUTH or EAST. Make sure you don't put cans of water near your east wall and place something heavy on the southwest corner on top of your building.

This worked for me 100 percent, its vastu, if these rules are folowed, the shadow people will never harm you.

Entities
by: Anonymous

There are science theories and things that "prove" this is a disorder. It's not. When I was six, I would wake up and be paralyzed. Don't ask me if I didnlt have enough sleep, okay, I slept healthily. Anyways, I would look over and see a dark figure crouching at the side of my bed. Me and my sister had to share a bed at that time, so it would be about three feet away, but it watched me. I couldn't see it's eyes, but I know it was alive. When the paralysis thinned a little, I would turn over and face the pillow. It would simply climb onto the bed and crouch over me, and I felt it's BREATH and it's weight and the sides of me. The paralysis has returned, but I haven't seen the figure. But I felt it...

Common visions seeing aliens
by: Anonymous

This is Mercedes. I don't think I've seen Aiens, but I have been in the car with my mother and brother in thelateto mid seventies and they did see one in Port Arthur Texas. I've never been very observant or maybe that's its just that I blocked it out of my memory. Could this be a common link?

Do this the next time you have sp
by: Anonymous

I am an alien abductee. I just woke up when I turned 33. My youngest daughter since 3 years old would tell me theirs demons in her room abducting her and the stuff she was telling me there was no way a child could know these things. If you told me you were an alien abductee I would have laughed and said whatever.I cant tell anyone I suffer from this because they would think I am all 6's and 7's. Then I started really paying attention to my surroundings noticing things. Shadow beings all through out my home all last year. My oldest daughter was seeing them as well.We also saw 12 stars in the sky and they moved and disappeared in Feb 2012. My youngest daughter and I are RH negative Blood I am B- and she is O-. Do you have Negative blood or anyone in family negative blood? This seems to play a factor in the sp and abduction experience. I started getting paralyzed in my room but I wasn't resting and wasn't sleeping. I had a hand wrapped around my wrist. Pulling me but nothing was there. Now I am not a religious person. I was watching a you tube video of a priest telling abductees when you get the sp say in your mind Please help me Jesus. I said it like 3 times and it stopped. Every time it would happen I would do that and it stopped. We are not dealing with aliens but they are fallen angels. Read the bible, book of enoch, koran, torah. These books are a spiritual guide warning us of this. I feel with everything that is going on in the world that they are pouring into our dimension. Holy water stops the abductions and sp. So this is my advice if your not religious try to have an open mind and stop the trauma you are experiencing. It won't work if you truly don't believe. I make sure I pray to God to put a protective shield around my home, all four corners roof and floor. I ask God to forbid them from coming into my home, forbid them from harming us and forbid them from taking us to do experiments on us. I then bless every room in my home in the name of God and I make sure to put holy water around my bed, windows and doorway. It has not completely stopped them but it decreased their appearance. Last year and this year there have been so many UFO sighting reports. Shadow being reports was the highest last year as well. I truly hope my story helps some that are feeling hopeless experiencing this scary stuff.Also did any of you see an eye above your bed and were awake. I saw that first before I started seeing them. I think its the eye of Satan.

evil
by: Anonymous

since I was little my parents can always talk to spirits or see them, they always told me be careful where you go, or step. really meaning you can attract spirits any where, if they want to come with you they will. some that come and wont leave and you can sense when it coming. you bought if with you, from some where you gone. these spirits always want something, they will keep doing it until you die. if you don't find some kind of help to get rid of it, soon make you sick, or kill you.

Can Relate
by: Anonymous

I have had the experiences described here as well. The paralysis, but eyes wide open with the dark energy crushing my chest making it hard to breath. There are times that I can feel it (something) sitting on my shoulders, holding me down, and too, hear the growling in my ear. It feels very evil, and you try to scream and move away from it, but you cant. Sometimes I can see it as a black fog moving up and crushing my body from my feet to my chest, other times it is just there. One time, a man with white hair and glasses appeared by my bedside, shortly after freeing my self from the black fog. All I can remember is that he took my hand and said "it is ok, there is a better place". I dont know who that man was, but he has never appeared again. But I still get the "shadow people", "black fog" and what I would describe is, those little "gargoyle things" huffing and puffing and growling in my ear. It is scary and am glad I am not the only one experiencing this.

It was too Real
by: Anonymous

About an hr ago I was sleeping & this just happened to me, My room looked exactly the same as it does but I saw a very tall shadowy figure right in the middle of my room. I felt it choke my neck & I was struggling to breathe. i looked next to me & there was another shadowy figure next to my bed. I was struggling to breathe & to get out of my room. then i said "Get behind me Satan!" but my voice half sounded like me & half like them (dark & raspy). I heard them laugh. & i struggled more to get up but couldn't & the 1 was almost blocking the doorway.. I started praying in my head then they disappeared & i was truly awake but could most definitely still feel their presence & i still felt them choking me but it was less & less. my alarm clock made it's normal static noise & my closet made a little noise (which i hear those noises occasionally) but i've never put 2&2 together & thought it was the demons until today. after i heard those noises the choking was gone. But i heard them laugh again. I am also a believer & this past week i've been growing in God rapidly.. I want those things to leave but I don't know how.

I'm the original poster of this blog
by: Barney

Hi guys, I'm Barney the one who originally started this discussion. I wanted to update you on what has happened to me. 2010-2011 were very dark years for me when I had so many of these demonic attacks and involuntary out of body experiences during these sp experiences. I went on a spiritual journey to find out why this was happening and have gotten somuch comfort knowing that this is a common occurance although it's not much discussed among friends, classroom or even in churches.

Although I had a belief in Jesus since a small child...I really wasn't giving him all the areas of my life nor actively seeking Him to be the Lord in charge of all of me. At the beginning of this recent spell of sp episodes when I posted this, I knew that the cause was "open spiritual doors" in my life but I didn't want to believe that was the real cause. I didn't want to admit this because when you are so attached to a sinful behavior and believe there is no way to change, it's easier to change your belief system because I tried and failed a million times to change certain sinful areas of my life.

I felt abandoned by god during this time of extreme fear and darkness when I was even scared to fo to sleep and this vicious cycle seems to get bigger and bigger.

I'm the original poster of this blog (2)
by: Barney

I had to come to a place to really want to face this darkness of my past and current practices and habits and really ask god to give me the desire to get closer to him for real. During a very long process of seeking Jesus with all my heart I have made a full commitment to let God have all the areas of my life and when I came to the place where I was ready to hear, god showed me that these attacks were caused by open doors of current sin and past sin in my life and that gave satan and his demons an entrance to attack me. It was God's love to allow me to see my true situation and his power that has been changing me in deep places in me that I didn't even know where there. I spent years looking for answers in the paranormal but I have found them in drawing closer to jesus and reading the bible and getting to know god as a true living being involved in my life. Some may not be ready to hear this but all I can do is tell you my journey. God promised that if we sincerely seek him with All of our heart, we will find him. In my case it took me several years because he doesn't answer until we are in the place where we are willing and ready to hear what he has to say. Jesus showed power over all evil forces and we will not share that power that's available in and through his name until we have a true encounter with him.

Here's an interesting question: I know I had so many encounters with evil entities so why did I wait so long to have a real encounter with the creator jesus who is the only one who has power over these evil forces?
This is something you'll have to answer for yourself but in my case it was because these evil forces wanted me to stay away from Christ

scary
by: Laura

I'm a 14 year old girl and stuff like this already have stopped happening to me recently when I pray to God and ask him to please not let it happen to me. Before, it happened to me several times, I'd be Lying in bed then I'd open my eyes and I'm still in the same room and position but I couldn't move. I felt as if many many hands were holding my body down and I couldn't even move my head or my mouth. And I'd see a tall dark figure by my bed and I'd hear many things whispering things I couldn't understand in my ears. And I'd force myself to wake up and not close my eyes whenever it happened. I just want an explanation on why this use to happen to me. I've been born a Christian and my parents practice it along with me and I sometimes pray to God.

how far is too far?
by: Anonymous

I have done about everything I can with this disorder I have mastered out of body and ridden my fear of these shadow men I actually use a scapegoat
shadow man he is the tall man that looks over me usually appears in the morning I kind of trust him he never attacks or in a sense "TAKES WHO YOU ARE"
I say takes who you are because when I first got out of my body to see if it was my brother that was whispering it was the darkman who attacked now he was a real asshole pardon my french. But I'm glad the tall mans there ever since I grabbed his hand and felt that shock I feel protected somehow weird huh wish I were making this up sounds crazy. anyway I got bored and to be honest afraid becuase the further I would stray away from my body my heart beat would slowly fade I opened my front door once and let me tell you nothen but dark outside execpt the sky it's soooo beautiful but yea I found more intresting things then this like being in a dream and talking to someone while you are sleeping and they are awake pretty cool althogh my bro hates it when I shout his name lol

Being pined down by evil
by: Anonymous

I'm so happy that I found this page because i have been harassed by evil forces that i can't see for many years now, And im not the only one!. As a Christian i believe in jesus and the devil because i have experienced both! As i was sleeping last night, a powerful negative force woke me up by pining my whole body down on the bed and could not move. So i cried out lord jesus help me and the negative force was instantly gone from me. Every time it happens to me i call out to the lord and he helps me every time. I have experienced many of these attacks and in some cases 7 attacks in one night! When it happens to me i can feel this evil, negative energy pushing hard all over my body not just my chest!. This evil makes me so uncomfortable nd i know when its watching because i can feel its negative energy.

Sp
by: Anonymous

Hi I just awoke from sp I had it 5 times in a row, starting with voices some foreign and some not making sense one bit then I went into sp it felt like someone was right in my face laughing at me and talking jibberish It also felt like I was being shook and that feeling like someone has walked over your grave all over my body I daren't open my eyes cuz it felt like that was what it wanted me to do I'm fed up with having this happen to me now 1 in bout 20 times it can be a great friendly experience but the rest no thankyou, I've tried a few spiritualists and they just say your special you have a real gift and need to learn to not fear death then things will really start happening, ummm no I don't think so I want it to stop, they say its when people are awakening they get it, I get it straight away from nodding off and have the warning sighns before going into sp which I can get up and turn over but as soon as I've nodded off bang. I've had it for 20 years and it doesn't get any easier! Help!

demon trying to enter through feet
by: CY

Last night, I was in the middle of my sleep when I became aware that some demons (they look liked the little monster from Lord of the Rings) were gnawing away at my feet, trying to enter, but I pushed them away with my legs. I was a bit freaked out, so I googled to see what people said and what it meant. I came across this website, so many comments to go through, but I read one to say "In the name of Jesus, I command you to leave." After saying it, I felt wind come out from my lower body. Hope there's nothing else to worry about. Thank you!

shadow people and evil entities(part2)
by: Anonymous

I as well am a Christian and it did get worse for me when I was baptized. I read a challenge that was given to a man who I van tell is a nonbeliever. That was horrible to have someone do that. Shame on you. I see a lot of people have some of the same stories, but has anyone seen more than dark shadows or one entity? Has anyone seen different ones, hears voices, seen it take human form and disappear, or seen creatures that no one can explain or believe you?

Inter dimensional demons
by: Jamie Thompson

Demons are smart and can shape shift, they play off your experiences and fears, I think they can be easier to detect in a dream state. But we have control of them through Jesus. Even the name Jehovah sends them away,,as the name itself is great. They've been around for centuries and aren't,going anywhere. They like to torment and trick, but they cannot hold,shape or form for long periods of disguise. I've noticed when I call out in prayer it becomes silent and I can here a reverberation from my voice,

Dark shadow
by: Katie

Last night it was as I was half dreaming but awake their was a dark shadow man above me an thou I couldn't see it face something about it I assumed it WAS a man.

Being attacked by the Darkside
by: David from FortWorth

It first started wile asleep waking up from getting the hell beat out of me an not able to move or scream for help , until a week ago. This last attack seam more evil with a black figure with 2 glowing eyes with a vicious growl at the foot of my bed. I've always seen spirits all around me no matter where I'm at. And catch them on a digital camera. The more I seek God an Christ the more they attack. I'm not scared of them because I know God an Christ is with me and that seems to really piss them off. It be nice if I could set down an talk to someone who knows what I'm saying is the truth an that I'm not some nut case. Because there's more. So is there anyone out there who would be willing to talk an help me? If so e-mail me at bulldog62us@yahoo.com

It sounds like you have an evil spirit that is stuck in pergatory, it might be your house or something, any ways you didn't leave an email...were the glowing eyes red ? I know I spotted a red sphere like a burning amber at the foot of my bed once and while half conscious,I heard the phone rang, I remembering picking it up and hanging it up so that my roommate couldn't answer it, which, is a dick move and something I wouldn't normally do..strange

god, demons are also aliens
by: Gordon

Glad to find other people that have seen them. Its like being awake is another dimension where they can only watch. I know they are watching sometimes when Im awake.
They wait at the side of my bed and as soon as im technically asleep they attack (but Im actually still awake only with the sleep paralysis thing).
They are dark shadows they are like anti-light/radiating darkness and they also radiate horible dreadfulness they try to scare me on purpose as much as possible and they really do feed on fear. Its crazy! its like a horror movie scifi. Ive never been christian and ive seen them since at least early teens. I have been deeply looking at the patterns of the universe (eg. branching patterns and spirals on all scales) and I think we are in a sort of computer simulation or dream (which is same thing as brains compute and simulate, predict our perceptions. This also led me to read hindu and recently the amazing Gnostic Nag Hamadi gospels. -lots of stuff that was not included in the new testament- Jesus really seems like an alien. I have stood up and shouted at them (in my room in dream dimension) In name of jesus christ, get out and keep away from me! I had no fear and shouted it so loud! so I dont know... jesus is out there whether you call him alien or god they are same thing really but without all the loaded words and connotations of centuries of oppressive religion. Im gay also btw and yeah Ive had more attacks as Im figuring that this world is not real and I know they dont like us to know we are being basically farmed/enslaved. Ive never seen the glowing red eyes but just shadow figures. also a old zombie-like man with his hands up like craws waiting then attacked sucking my neck when I was asleep. So hard to wake up it takes so much effort! Thanks Im glad its not just me, it is really real.

by: Anonymous

can anyone help me figure out whats been happening?
i've never looked in to this before but it's starting to really scare me.
is it normal for two people to have this experience at the same time?
i was laying in bed with my friend, and we were both woken up in the middle of the night, my friend had a moment of sleep paralysis and i can't remember if i did or not, but we both saw the same shadowy figure above us, my friend was in sleep paralysis and was trying to scream or get me up because there was a dark shadow of a person above me holding a knife, i saw it but i was like half awake and confused but i was definitley really scared.
i'm curious if any one else has any info/insight to share or any similar experiences etc.

Sylvia Browne's view on Sleep Paralysis

July 7, 2010



American psychic Sylvia Browne believes sleep paralysis is caused by "astral catalepsy," which can occur when a person awakes physically but their spirit (soul, astral body) has not yet fully left or re-entered the body.

"Several times a week, whether we’re aware of it or not, our spirits take temporary breaks from our bodies during sleep to go visiting, exploring or simply running free outside the confines of these goofy earthbound vehicles we occupy while we’re here," she notes in her book Phenomenon– Everything You Need to Know About the Paranormal (© Copyright Sylvia Browne Corporation 2005, published by New American Library, a division of Penguin Group (USA) Inc., ISBN: 0-451-21949-X).

"These breaks are as refreshing for our spirits as they are for our conscious minds, not to mention a frequent reminder that our spirits can and do thrive as the separate, eternal entities they are, no matter what happens to our mortal bodies."

Browne believes that our spirits can slip into and out of our bodies with ease during sleep. But on rare occasions, the conscious mind awakens and catches our spirit either coming or going from our bodies. When this occurs, the mind awakens but the body is unable to respond in any way.

"And in its less than alert state, the conscious mind, realizing the spirit is half in and half out of its body, jumps to an obvious conclusion. The body must be dying."

It is this conscious thought that causes a person to panic. The body is immobile, unable to cry out for help causing other "short circuits’ in our consciousness. That’s when a person may experience all kinds of strange phenomenon from heaviness in the chest area and shortness of breath, a feeling of being watched and/or touched, loud noises or buzzing sounds, apparitions and/or strange lights.

Browne affirms that everyone goes through this type of experience at one time or another and although it can seem frightening, there is really nothing to fear. While we sleep, "our spirits are off having beautiful adventures, reunions and Homecomings for our benefit, whether we’re consciously aware of them or not."

Astral travel has also been coined as out-of-body experiences, a subject that will come later in this series. Astral projection is yet another method whereby you prompt your spirit to leave your body while awake but in a meditative or hypnotic state.

Weird Black smoke strangling me
by: Hello

Hello,

I am a well educated 32 year old religious male living in NYC. I have started to have sleep paralysis accompanied by hallucinations that I have thought to be paranormal and malicious. I don't like to even write about it. However my latest event was after a very bad dream where i was trying to escape a supernatural evil force in my room. I then woke up (sort of) and recognized I was still in between a sleep and awake state (this has happened to me before). I recognized this and subsequently began trying to wake myself up. I then saw a black smoke like ghost like thing wrap around my neck and begin choking me to where I could not breath. It was not a complete choke but a half choke as I could still breath but I could not breath well and it felt as though someone was choking me. I convulsed and moved around violently trying to fight it and wake up. I finally did. I was and am still very scared. I very much hope to have a simple not threatening scientific explanation.

shadow people and astral catalepsy
by: Brenda Brown

My son and my daughter experience astral catalepsy all the time when they are sleeping. often times they tell me that they see dark spirits when there spirits are out of their body. My daughter says that it is if she's traveling in another dimension. My daughter is also very psychic and has been every sense she was born. She and my son actually see spirits on a every day basis. Me myself, I don't see spirits however, I have a strong sixth sense and I am also very psychic and have been every sense I was a little girl. Shadow people are nothing more then demonic spirits that attack those individuals who are somewhat weak minded , depressed and whose spiritual faith in God is weak as well. Children are always attacked by the enemy because they don't really know how to protect themselves from darkness that roam this earth which is nothing more then HELL. As children get older, they will learn how to protect themselves spiritually from these dark entities by putting them in a good church home and surrounding your home with spiritual trinkets as well as anointing and cleansing your home in prayer everyday.

my first experience with sp
by: jacob

My first so experience was so real I thought i was really being ckocked to death by a bat about 2 feet wide hubbering over my bed chocking me with its evil super power. The Scarry thing is I knew it was not a dream, my room was the same I knew my girl friend was next to me in bed but she never heared my call for help.
The second time it was a wight Mose. And this time I was in the sleeper of the truck I drive, and again in the sp episode It was no different then in real life but the white Mose stairing at me with its evil eyes was not normal. I knew what was happening this time but even though I know I wanna wake up but I can't. This it did not chock me, it felt more like the mose paralyzing me by staring at me. Then I got a tingling feeling when I tried to get up because only my soul was moving and my body staing in bed. So I decided to lay down to keep my soul in my body. I had no idea what was happening to my until some research
. But I still don't understand why this is happening. I would love to get some more info about what to do about it. Thanks

Shadow people in my SP
by: David

It happened again yesterday afternoon during a nap. It usually occurs when I sleep outside of my normal schedule. I quit seeing terrible scary figures when I was a teenager but every once in a while I'll have an episode of sp that really spooks me. Yesterday was such an episode.. As I lay there on the couch powerless in a deep visceral buzzing sensation, I couldn't help but feel that the room was full of other ppl. there were fearful whispers all around me, mostly indistinguishable however I was able to pick out a panicked whisper of "I don't want to die I don't want to die" over and over again. And crossing my field of vision was a short shadowy blob, unrestricted to the surfaces of the walls or floor. It looked like a hooded figure but it was hard to tell.. It kept drifting around and I noticed there were a few of them, floating through doorways and even passing through the walls. As I slowly regained full wakefulness and control of my body, they slowly faded out of view. Not the scariest shadows I've seen but not a very pleasant experience either.. Anyone got anything similar? Or know what the hell just happened? Who or what are they?

Not Real
by: Lance

Those ARE hallucinations. Just because they SEEM real doesn't mean they ARE. The main property of hallucinations is that they seem real. And honestly if they were real you would have been dead by now. If beings from other realms that overlap our own can't interact with us while we're awake, they can't while we're asleep either.

believe in the unbelievable.
by: Jake

These things do exist whether you believe in them or not. I have been physically pulled off my bed during one of these encounters, there after waking up on the floor terrified. though I've never seen any demonic figures or entities as you call shadow people, I still can feel a heavy presence that seems very evil and eager to strike fear. I've had these experiences on and off for the last 8 years. never once have I touched a Ouija board or delved into any kind of occult. I'm a God fearing man and I have to say that is the only thing that works for me to rid myself of these presences. we live in a world of many unexplainable occurrences. I hope that being that we have all experienced similar things we can come together and form a more powerful army against evil.

Some advice that helped me hope it helps
by: Anonymous

So from a very young age i have seen demons, ghosts entities and much more super natural beings. I have sleep paralysis most nights and i find if in your dreams you fight them mentally and physically you will win everytime. The reasoning i believe these demons can get into your dreams is due to the fact that well you sleep you're the most vunable between the spirtal world and are own world. Also in dreams we are more fear full and thats what the demons play on to get you where they want you to become a reality in are world. So my advice to anyone that has sp dont let the demons control what happens in your dream you can destory them with your mind

any thought
by: TC

So I've never read up on SP till now. Just want to share some personal experiences. I never have nightmares..rarely remember my dreams. Except one it started when I was very young around 7 I woke up in my room unable to speak or move to a dark figure in my doorway. Terrified.. its happens atleast 2 times a year since then always completly aware of my suroundings but every time the figure gets closer and there's nothing I can do but lie in terror. However last night was the first time I wasn't stuck. In my dream I got up to use the restroom. Upon returning I moved the blanket from the silloet of where my girlfriend would be and she was gone I turned around Ans instantly froze as the figure touched my shoulder and I woke up to my girlfriend shaking me saying I was dreaming. Also four years ago I got a dog who is very close with me. She is also aware of these dreams as she has woken me up by barking or licking me awake multiple times. Each time she is facing towards where the figure was and is alert.. any thoughts.

obe
by: Anonymous

i had sp 2 or 3 times now.. Once i was in verge of falling asleep n saw this grey skull like face in a black hood and red eyes who told me 'the next is you'... Then suddenly everything blacked out n there was a burst of energy kinda thing..i started feeling vibrations and had an obe for the first time. I wasn't frightened or anything..in fact i felt..happy! It was very sunny (bright yellowish lighting) and i saw the ceiling fan..passed right through the wall and saw a giant window (victorian like). I saw my spirit hands in front of me..didn't see myself or anything. It ended abruptly. I was also diagnosed with vertigo i.e. My head spins when i sit up from sleeping position..due to some fluid imbalance in my middle ear...i am sure all of this (the obe, the halluciantions some people have) must have a scientific explanation..

If you have not experienced it you don't know!
by: Summer

I too have went to sleep it will seem like I'm dreaming but I know where I am.. My room looks the same as it did before I fell asleep then suddenly I'm trapped in my body. I can't move can't get up or scream for help, there is always a black shadow in the room when this happens. It stares at me even after what seems like hours when I couldn't move or speak. It fills me with fear. I know it isn't a dream because my room is exactly the same and that shadowy figure why is it there staring at me? More questions than answers on this subject. It's only happened to me two or three times but it's was creepy. No red eyes though nor did it talk to me... However I promise you this much it was real. It was also really and really scary.

Dark presence
by: Brian

Hello everyone. I also have had this experience two nights ago. I was sleeping downstairs on our sofa (have to keep the wood stove going all night) when there was a black presence standing at the foot of the sofa. It moved like a thick blanket in a wave coming up over me and through me. When it was completely over me it was trying to merge completely into me. I tried to speak the words - Get off me in the name of Jesus but nothing would come out. The third time I tried I actually spoke out loud and woke up. This thick black presence was lifting up and leaving me. Though this experience was terrifying in every way, I smile now when I think about how easily the name of Jesus overcame this darkness. I have been a believer for over 26 years. I love him more now then ever and I read His word on how we are to live as believers. I have no desire to live life my way, but only the way He desires. I have been set free from many things in my life and I encourage all who read this to seek Him as well. He really is the answer! This morning my wife who was sleeping upstairs asked me if I was making noises in my sleep last night. (Like I would know :)....) I said no, but just then my 21 year old son came down and said it was probably him. He related to us that he was sleeping and a demonic figure had come in his room and had tried pulling him off his bed as if to drag him away. He too managed to finally speak to it (what my wife heard) and it too left. I am 47 years old and this is the first time this has happened. Twice in 2 nights in our home. However, though the experience was real and terrifying I would like to end with a reassurance from Jesus' own words.

Mat 10:25 If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing [5] and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. 32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Not sp, but astral projection
by: Marie

I had these experiences when I was a kid, but I'm a Wiccan now, although I do believe in God. I can tell you that if you're able to move around and exit your body during sleep paralysis, you're astral projecting instead. Astral projection is when you leave your body, but sleep paralysis is when you cannot move at all.

They can't hold there shape for long
by: Anonymous

I've learned the demon or demons can't hold there shape for very long, and once you become suspicious the playing field evens. I stared deep into one last night as is appeared on top of me as a beautiful woman ! It than said " what are you looking at !" It's eyes went almost reptilian , I then proceeded to punch it in the face....and actually ended up punching my headboard and woke up lol. I'll get that fucker one day, it wasn't the first battle, I went matrix on it one time, I guess my martial arts works in the spirit world too ! If it stands between me and the light with the rest of the shadows when I die. It's on ! I am a soldier of Yaweh, brother of Jesus, and with my father beside me the hand (sword) of righteousness will come down hard. Stay in the dark where you belong motherfuckers

The demon always manifest as my mom
by: Cris

For as long as I can remember I had dreams that I am interacting with my mom and when I get a good look at her, she is identical to my mom, but it isn't her! It is the weirdest thing to explain. There are instances when there is a smile in her eyes. It is so scary!! Every time I realize it isn't my mom the entity grabs a hold of me and I can not move. It is as if my spirit is paralyzed. It has been 20 years that I have experienced these nightmares. Recently, I began remembering something very troubling from my childhood regarding my mother. It is so troubling because I don't know if it is a dream that I am remembering or is it a REAL memory?? How do I find out if this is a memory or a dream? Psychologically, if these memories are true, then it would fully explain my night terrors in which this demon manifest as my mother. On the other hand if these memories are false then how the hell did they get there, why does it feel like a real experience, and why is this paralyzing demon always my mom? Before I slip into one of these dreams I get a sensation in my chest and I know what is about to happen, but there is nothing I can do to stop it. Once the demon paralyzes me I usually close my eyes and think of myself in my bed. Lastly, I call out to God and I wake up. There have been times when I believe I am up and then the smallest detail prompts me to the truth, I am still a sleep!

HOW TO STOP IT!!!!
by: Anonymous

There is only one answer of how to stop these! I had first experience of this about 30yrs ago & have experienced this about 3 other times over the years. It was always while I was in a deep sleep that I suddenly became completely paralyzed & felt like I was still in a very deep sleep as though somewhat comatosed, & there was much terror the first time. I tried to pray in my mind but though it did not stop it, I heard God speak to me telling me to say the name of JESUS out loud. It took quite a few attempts to do so because I was paralysed, but each attempt enabled me to get a tiny bit more sound out of my mouth until finally the name of JESUS came out fully, & immediately the demonic oppression left with no more paralysis or evil presence in the room.
On the other occasions this happened to me I was not afraid at all because despite the intensity of the evil presence & oppression & paralysis, I understood what was happening & how to stop it. Satan & his demons are very real & want to attack us, but those who accept Jesus as their Saviour have been given authority to use Jesus's Name as their protection. Jesus is no liar & he defeated satan on the Cross & those who receive this salvation & victory over evil must choose to believe what Jesus did for them & do things His way by obeying what He tells us in the bible to do, which is to repent of our sins (to close the dooways to demonic) & to call on the Name of Jesus & use our authority (in His Name) to tread on snakes & scorpions (demons) & cast out demons.
Ive never been afraid to go to sleep despite these experiences happening a few times since because i understand that I can chase them off & have Jesus's power to command them to leave after I simply speak His Name!
Its the only thing that works!!!
Its the same only thing that works against alien abductions & appearances because they are simply demons wich have shape shifted. There are many true testimonies of these being chased off this way!

Speaking Jesus' name out loud does work. I've dealt with them for over 20 years, it doesn't happen often anymore but my 3 yr old just described a black shadow jumping on her and making her stuck. It angers me that they would go after her but I know with God she will overcome. We are all at war.

TO STOP THE ENEMY ATTACKS
by: Anonymous

I have done the following and am still doing them every day, they repelled the attacks of the enemy.

No more freezing when I am in bed. No more bad smell at the house. No more murmuring in the ears. No more disturbed sleep. No more bad dreams. GOD bless us all and protect us from the enemy every moment everyday, in Jesus name. Amen.

1. confessed my sins and repented; asked God's forgiveness; asked forgiveness from those I hurt; try to sin no more
2. accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour; asked HIM to enter my life
3. daily read the Holy Scriptures; write all those verses which affected you, how you understand it, how to apply it in your life, and write a prayer about it
4. pray upon waking up, talk to GOD throughout the day, pray before sleeping
5. daily pray for the covering of the blood of Jesus Christ over you, your love ones, your houses, all your properties
6. play audio Bible while sleeping
7. play praise songs during the day both at work and at home
8. be sensitive to the urgings of the Holy Spirit
9. do good; a smile to the people you encounter everyday is a good start; a simple thank you and I'm sorry would go a long way
10. avoid places, things, circumstances, etc. that you know will cause you to sin
11. when tempted, ask GOD to help you overcome it or to keep you away from it
12. when the enemy is nearby, pray to Jesus Christ to cover you with HIS blood to protect you
13. never read books about the enemy, never watch horror movies, never visit porn sites; these serve as doors, never open them

I saw something last night
by: Anonymous

It's been years since I experienced this but last night I had SP. I remember having a dream about a colleague of mine which was I wouldn't say completely sexual but had a feeling that it was heading that way. I woke up and couldn't move and saw a dark figure by my bed. It said something but I didn't understand and I started trying to fight it. I thought I had snapped out of it because it was suddenly gone and I tried to put on my light repeatedly but it wouldn't switch on. Then I actually did snap out of it and woke up properly feeling like I had run a marathon(I guess that came from the struggle I had with that thing). I'm no longer afraid of these things even though they try to scare me. I'm not even religious to be honest. But for me the main thing is not to let these things frighten me because I feel then they will win. Usually before it happens I'll hear a loud sound like the sea amplified, sometimes I'll see flashing lights and occasionally I hear voices. Sometimes it feels like I'm sinking into my mattress. What I found in the past helped was a) sleeping in a cool room, b) not allowing myself to be so tired that I can't actually sleep properly (not sure if this makes sense). Just don't let them make you afraid or feel worthless. You are stronger than them. They attack in your sleep. No other time. So you can beat them. Tell them off, if rebuking them in the name of Jesus helps you then do it.

Feelings of being shocked or electrocuted
by: Anonymous

I haven't had a dream in awhile that felt like it fit the pattern although, I have screamed myself awake from something a few times before. This is my third post. About 2 months ago I was asleep, but felt like I was being dragged out of bed by my leg Every way I turned I felt as though I was being shocked or electrocuted. The dream had no beginning and I did not feel as though I was awake really as in the other dreams. I screamed and my husband heard me, it was enough for me to wake myself up and the dream and feeling of being shocked or electrocuted at dragged ended abruptly. i was not as scared as in previous dreams where I actually felt another presence in the room. Past dreams feeling awake with someone at the foot of the bed about to grab my ankle and feeling enveloped by something sitting on my chest wrapping themselves around my body. A dark spider man like being. I do know the omit but have never read that version of Spiderman before.

Now only a minor nuisance
by: Anonymous

I've experienced a range of odd phenomena over the past 25 + years, mostly in my late teens, and less frequently as I've grown older.

As a very young child I experienced night terrors for the span of a few months, during which I would rise in the middle of the night, fully mobile, moving about the house, shouting at hallucinations of demons and the occasional tiger. Eventually, as my parents, whom I saw as demons, held me in their arms, the hallucinations would fade. During waking hours, I sometimes sensed malevolent forces in my parents' basement - when confronting these entities, I could see them in my mind's eye for a moment, and strange words would come to me, perhaps names, which I would speak aloud almost involuntarily, causing the negative energy to subside. I felt I was protecting my family. I was too young to know of exorcisms, or of the apparent power of naming associated with such things (which I only recently read about), but if it was anything more than hallucination, I assume I had a gift for that art.

As a teenager, I felt that perhaps one of those entities was following me, and I had no power over it - electronics would break in my presence, street lights would flicker, and unseen spiderwebs would cross my path when I walked at night. Several friends witnessed and experienced these events. During this time, I had extremely bad luck which negatively influenced the course of my life for several years, and I was often depressed, which is not surprising for a teenager, but at the darkest of hours I could sense "something" near me.

Eventually, all of these things faded, and my life has remained normal for the better part of a decade. However, I recently had a dream, in which a familiar malevolent presence visited me - in the dream, I was in bed with my wife, as I was in reality, and a figure in the shadows was speaking to me, attempting to convince me that I was corrupted, and that everyone and everything I touched had and would continue to be corrupted as a result. I knew it was lying, trying to cause me to fear and despair, and I had little patience for it. I involuntarily verbally cast the entity out in the name of Christ and woke from the dream (though raised as a Christian, I am not devout). Having experienced several years of lucid dreaming, there's little that bothers me in dream, but I must admit, my heart was racing when I woke.

P.S. I have no history of mental illness.

strange
by: trav

I find the strangest thing is that I'm not alone in all this.... Last night I had another episode, not so bad as said entity prying pressure on my chest. I felt the darkness of it and my whole body got goose bumps. I don't think they're is ever a time where I watched myself but I have been stuck in a dream like state, trying repeatedly to wake myself to no avail. What are these beings that come in the night to torture us, to take much needed sleep away?.. I am sorry that anyone else has to experience this. It's terrifying.

Similar experience
by: Jordan

Hello i am now 24 and experience Sp less frequently then in my younger years of 14 or so, it always comes with a very malicious and sinister presence, and usually dark shadowy figures watching me sleep . I can never speak as i would like to while this is happening, and neither do the figures, they just watch as though waiting for the right moment to take my soul (is possible) . At first i used to be terrified, and would even come almost to tears when trying to talk about it. and now after experiencing this almost countless time , i always just think to my self " Bring it on ! do your worst !" it always passes after at least 5 dream minutes ( what ever that is ) . it is a very interesting occurrence, that ive actually kind of grow to enjoy oddly enough ! although it is still super frightening, and causes my heart to race after awakening ......... just thought id share

Shadow Demon in my dream - Tiger
by: Wendy

I just woke up from a two hour nap. I've had two instances of sleep paralysis in my life (in the past six years) - during times of depression and illness. A strange experience when I was really ill last year that I can't even describe.

I'm not a religious person. I have studied Wicca in the past and Shamanism which worships the earth (not demonic like some people think). White magic which is basically meditation and spiritual healing. I asked for a message in my dream.

I was in my family's house and my whole family was there even my mum who passed away several months ago. I finally told my family I thought the house was haunted some sort of spirit there (I still think it is today even). In the dream I heard a dark growl and voice whispering over and over again, "Do you see?" And wherever we went, it followed us. I also had a pet kitten which seemed to be my protector (I hate cats!).

I don't know if this was a random dream but it sure freaked the hell out of me - an hour sleep and it seemed so real. My family admitted they all heard the voice and growls. And the "shadow demon" we summoned it in during a drumming ritual in my dream and it appeared as a tiger.

Dreams are a funny thing. I just had to write that down somewhere so I wouldn't forget it. The "shadow demon" seemed menacing in the dream however, turned out he was just there to show us someone who would deceive us.

Makes me wonder about the house now. BTW doctors will tell you s/p is a real brain disorder. But there have been reports of whole villages that have experienced it at the same time.

My experience - Dark hooded figure who whispered
by: Anonymous

I have only ever had this experience once. I am not religious, nor a spiritualist.

I was waking up with the odd thought of being able to envision long lost loved ones (you know, thinking how creepy it can be that they can and sometimes appear over people). Upon thinking that, what I came to see was a dark figure standing at the foot of my bed, though still slightly blurred as my eyes were gaining focus upon waking wondering who it would be. As my eyes gained full focus, what it was wasn't any past family member but instead a dark hooded figure. No features were visible, just a dark figure. At that point, I was paralyzed, couldn't move. I was more concerned with the current situation to take notes of my surroundings but from memory, the room was the same, which is very odd since the "dream world" surroundings are always different.

Within a split second, this thing appears over me and tilts its head towards the side of mine and all I hear is the sounds of several whispers (like a group of people whispering) no audible words, just the sound of whispers. I tried to shout and couldn't, couldn't move, but at that point it was so eerie that I fought like hell, and woke up.

I have never in my life had a nightmare like it before

I cannot belive there are so many others...
by: Anonymous

I found this site and cannot believe there are so many others with similar experience. Your are not crazy - your eyes have opened and I believe God has plans for you. Both my wife and I have different levels of this dark shadow experience. We both are Christians since birth and I have experienced these throughout my life starting at about 5 years old I will never forget the fear. I still have episodes and just pray and shrug them off. I am still scared but they cannot hurt me. I am protected by God.

It seems when I get closer to God I see these shapes and feel dark presence when I awake from sleep in the middle of the night. When I drift from God and preoccupied with daily life and sin I don't see them.

I think there is a spiritual world linked to our material world. Something like mass and energy. Praying to Jesus Christ and ordering the demons to leave always works. Have faith and pray. People can read and laugh but I think when you accept Christ, doors are opened and a spiritual world is revealed and suddenly we can see our true reality. Its not just computers, jobs, women or money.
The Bible is really starting to make spiritual sense. I wish you all well in your journeys. Remember Jesus is love and they ripped him apart and laughed when they crucified and tortured him. What kind of evil would do that to any living being? You can see the religious persecutions starting - even in the USA. My heart is broken because I love this country but its changing. Don't let anyone or anything take Jesus' love from you - ever. He is real - its just the world is becoming more messed up. Stay strong, pray and read the Bible. You will see things that will blow your mind. Take care all...

Demons/shadow people/creatures
by: Kara

I have had several experiences now. A few around the age of 15. Those were just sleep paralysis, I think. I never noticed anything else at the time except the fact I was scared out of my mind that I was awake watching myself, capable of moving my eyes to see, but unable to move my body. My breathing wasn't controlled by me though I did happen to notice that but I don't remember figures. Not until shortly before I was 22. But I haven't necessarily been "paralyzed" though. My demons/shadow people/even creatures aren't exactly "hooded" or alien like either if you will. I'm almost wondering if it may be actual demons as crazy as it sounds. I can their auras. The first time it happened right before I turned 22, I was asleep next to my boyfriend, when I had a nightmare. Some was chasing me etc, I woke up rolled over and asked him to hold me. I happened to look up in the corner of the bedroom and there was this haunting figure.. He had a purple aura, I could see the green/red glow of his eyes and that was about it. His eyes never remained one color.. Or maybe just the aura changed I really don't know. But his body wasn't exactly "straight" either. Animated looking almost. What was freakier, is that even though there was this purple outlined black zig-zagged shapped head and lower bodied creature like an anime character/demon, he had a black castes shadow behind him as well.. A cloud.. It was getting larger, but only a little at a time before it stopped. He just looked at me and laughed. It was sinister. He turned his hand over like he was about to shrug his shoulders.. Aside from being scared there's obvious confusion here. He never came at me, never threatened me, nothing. Just sat there and watched.. Like it was tv for him or something.. I shook my Bf to wake Him up. He remembered me waking him up and pointing at the ceiling, which of course The figure was gone by then but for my bf to remember that i couldnt have had paralysis. Since that incident I've had 3 other episodes too. All similar. 2 after nightmares. All without paralysis.. One was scared though and left as soon as I noticed his presence. The other was a lot like the first..

SP and Demons
by: Matthew

Firstly I would like to thank Barney Donnelly for setting up this forum as it is a great comfort to know that I am not alone. For the past 7 years I have experienced terrible episodes of sleep paralysis where I am constantly being attacked by an evil figure. This 'thing' hides in my dreams disguising itself as different people that I know to draw me in, then when I move closer to it, it jumps on me and holds me down on the ground. This thing has really long nails which dig into my hands and body. I'm half asleep/half awake when this happens. I try to wake up and when i eventually do, the evil spirit just disappears. Every night before I go to bed I say a prayer, which helps sometimes, but if I'm feeling slightly tired/angry/depressed/ill my prayer does not protect me as much. I have completely given up alcohol as that makes it 10 times worse. I have been to a catholic priest who performed an exorcism. This helped for a while, but the evil spirit did return in a few months. It affects my daily life as after an episode I can be very tired at work and make mistakes. I'm afraid that this spirit will never go away. After an incident I always feel somehow violated and dirty. I would really appreciate any advice on how to deal with this issue.

Nightmares for 13 years of shadow people.
by: Nate

Just recently I had a dream about a shadow person. I use to have them almost every night from when I was about 2 years old. I know this because I remember a lot of the nightmares I had about them because they were so frightening and being in my crib in some of my dreams. My dreams would always start off normal and vivid. Like any other day. I would leave the room to do something and everything would be dead silent. Right away I knew they were coming for me. I learned that in order to get away from them I had to hide as fast as I could. If I hesitated too long and saw them coming they were so fast I would have no chance to hide. They looked like naked silhouettes of people sometimes hazy but when they moved fast they looked like apes or something primal. If I felt that the place I was hiding was good I would close my eyes and wake up. Basically Lucid dreaming every time this happened. But if they found me..I sure as hell knew they did. I would tell my mom they "tickle me". Me being a very ticklish person and hating being tickled this is all I could really understand. WhenI think about it now though it wasn't a tickle, It was a enormous electric shock that trembled my whole body sent sever chills down my spine and then i would wake up still feeling the after effect for a few seconds. I had dreams like this almost every night from when I was 2 to 15 years old. I hated going to bed. slept with my light on for all those years. I rarley have dreams about them anymore and when I do I resist them. But now when I wake I see them in the room for awhile and they disappear. Im wondering if anyone else has a similar experience. Im afraid they are trying to tap into my dreams again.. =[

Illusions & Trickery
by: John Souglides PhD

Hi everyone,

These issues are real. One is able to identify and confirm this during hypnosis, regression and psychic work.

I have had my fair share of them, anyone who has not experienced such is either unaware or consider yourself fortunate.

My research has shown, these entities connect to your electro magnetic field of the heart. This field is a powerful energetic frequency they like to tap into. Another aspect by sitting on your chest and become semi physical (they come from being spirit form to semi physical form), hence the increase in weight, heavyness on chest. This is done to alter the senses and disprive you of air, altered consciousness.

Another issue they can shape change, create an illusion of trickery. They can shape shift in a form you rèlate to. This is done so you feel safe. Feeling safe you drop your gaurd, feeling scared you overwhelmed by fear so your aura is compact makeing you vulnerable.

Not all create illusions, those that do want to trick you so they wish to feel off your energy. When this occurs subtle petsonality changes at first may be witnessed by those close to you.

Regards
John Souglides Ph.D.

Imagine Your Body
by: m4ick

I've experienced these several times. When I was a kid I thought it was a ghost. I screamed for my dad but it was just a quiet whisper I could let out, and it took a lot of effort to muster that.

I've had episodes where I hear whispering in my ear and can feel the vibrations tickle the inside of my ear. Very scary. I woke up to realize it was me interpreting the sound of my box fan as something else, much like the pattern on your curtains can resemble a dream scene when you are not fully awake but your eyes are open.

I have found that if I want to wake up, just imagine your body. Imagine your hands and feet and bring that inward to your torso. Imagine yourself laying in your bed. You'll be surprised how quickly you wake up without all the struggle. Struggling is what makes it the worst.

Deep Sleep
by: Geeks

I'm twenty, female, not religious, and I've had one of those dreams that you all are talking about, albeit different.

I've had the same masculine/unidentifiable shadow from childhood look at me and talk to me (its voice wasn't even scary anymore).

I usually reacted by looking away then closing my eyes. I'd feel myself getting aroused while hating what it was doing to me.

Then I'd wake up at 3:29 a.m.* or earlier, feeling vulnerable and struggling not to cry.

I've never talked to my mom, sis, or grandma about it.

I've had zero out of body experiences and I'm sure I haven't been sexually abused.

I've come to the conclusion it's my own negative feelings manifesting, or something like that.

*I usually don't want to sleep after that, so I check a clock (or my cell) and think of happy things.

fear, confused, seeking help.
by: Anonymous

I've suffered from what the Doctor notes as "night terrors" or "sleep paralysis" for 4 1/2 years! I've been told it's not unheard of in adults but rare. It's not just once a month, once a week, but can be a few times a night. Medical team as stated post traumatic stress as the cause. Although I was against it I went along with meds prescribed to help me... none have help.

I've read all the experiences posted, I've not seen any shadow, dark person, etc.. but experience the paralysis, the tingling from head to toe as I descend into this night terror, thinking I've woken up interact with all my surrounding only to realize I'm still in bed, I feel a presence that puts a fear right through my soul, I've been restrained, pulled, and at one point felt a presence move up against me and a voice at it's lowest whisper "I'll kill you if it's the last thing I do". Recently I've come to wonder if I'm being haunted due to the worst imagined, this...what ever it is...trying to make me believe my family is 100% behind it's will to break me down. Please note, I have the most loving family in the world. The doctors believe I'm suffering due to my husbands death, and some devastating events that followed after that. I've always been a women of strength, or so I thought. I've never believed in hauntings, or really understood night terrors, sleep paralysis, and any other sleep disorder. I've quickly come to understand what people experience in the above mentioned, and now more than ever ask myself "am I being haunted".... one thing I do know, as bad as it sounds it's good to read there are many out there suffering the same, and I'm not losing my mind. I feel perfectly normal during the day, work, socializing, but when night comes it's a whole different story. I'm seeking help and have found a few directions to take and try.

To Eduardo
by: onwardnupward

Eric Rodriguez

Hi Eric.

Fear is expected but I would say that IF this is evil in nature then... fear and.or misery is likely an objective.
Being a fairly faithful person my closest association to this caused me to default to spiritual warfare.
I have experienced something very similar to all these accounts and I am always impressed when I get tidbits of information that cause me to draw very specific parallels. It just reaffirms the experiences for me.
But in each case - the only action I took on to defend or control the outcome was literally invoking the "name of Jesus Christ" and rebuking (said spirit or entity) in the name of Jesus Christ. I've articulated this with my right arm to the square, palm open, fingers extended. Repeatedly.
I have also tried this when I was in paralysis and nothing would come out of my mouth. I assumed this was driven by fear but who knows. Nevertheless, within me (as if I had a voice) I again invoked the named of Jesus Christ, in spite of my fear (which is courage)and again after a bit it yielded the same effect.
That to me meant to simple things - a) either divinity is real and there is tangible power in the word or b)belief (in something supernatural) manifested in action (faith) also has power attached to it (somehow).
I am inclined to believe but to each his own.
All this to say... a) you're NOT crazy b) there is something definitively there c) you have control or power over it and maybe d) it (whatever that is) may have not power over you that you don't readily give it. Don't relinquish your power - get out of reactivity into proactivity (internally).
No patronizing. You're good. Press on!

christian guy under attack
by: Anonymous

About 16 years ago I was an extremely in shape weightlifter and athletic tree topper.one evening I fell asleep and woke at 3:15 am the room was dark and the only lite showing was the led of the digital clock.My wife was sound asleep next to me.when I noticed something else was in the room also.I started to jump up and realized I couldn't. Move however my eyes were opened and I could see around the room but not move my head.I witnessed 3 to 4ft beings that wore hooded black cloaks rummaging through the room picking up pics on dressers curiously and our decorative figurines and things.just then I felt a searing pain running through my shoulder I looked. one of these beings was sticking some. Type of hot thin probe into my shoulder.at. This point I started to panic but couldn't Move then as this probe was being pushed. Into my shoulder I concentrated with every thing in my being to move.after a minute or two of extreme. Concentration my left arm broke free and I grabbed the whole being off the ground in a vice grip lock trapping it.suddenly all 5 that were in the room rushed to their fellows aid,to free it from my grasp.they couldn't then a type of ramp or stair came down literally through the ceiling (the house was two stories and the master was on the 2nd)several more came in the room and violently wrenched their fellow out of my grasp.freeing it.along with the burning probe.Suddenly the paralysis. Was over and the being were all scurrying up the ramp I jumped up up and dove after the last one getting on the ramp as the others grasped it and pulled. It in .my dive was so violent like when I played football ,My diving momentum carried me over the top of our king size bed (my wife's side)and through a nightstand lamp and through the sheetrock wall.my wife awakened screaming what's happening turned the lights on just then I looked at the clock it said 4:00.the next day as I was riding to work(I live in Houston)The news radio said last nite between 3:00 and 4:00 all NASAs radar and instruments. Had gone completely Off and no one knew why.after that I privately confided what had happened to the pastor of my church he admonished me not to tell anybody and said it was some kind of demonic activity.my wife believed me because of my leap through the wall.This has never happened since but I have a strange and persistent left shoulder pain I've learned to live with I'm sure if someone tracked the dare the NASA problem to me was proof.my son was two years at that time now he is eighteen.

Dark Mischief Moments
by: Anonymous

I have been receiving moments of being held down and controlled in my sleep. I cannot get away. I sense a dark shapeless thing on top of me that seems to enjoy the fact I cannot get away. Each time, I struggle and force my way through the dark with all my might. Breaking free and feeling bewildered. Last night I had to yell my way out and away from the darkness, scaring me wife to death. I never really feel threatened, just inconvenienced! Gone so far to call this thing out and confront it, later going in after it in my dreams. It does not like this and hides, afraid of me. I'm angry at it.
Any thoughts?

Based on experience
by: Anonymous

It seems that intense feelings such as fear, hate, anger attract certain entities. They feed off this and can easily attach to people in this state of being.
Stay positive, do not be afraid and make your intent known the next time you encounter an entity.

Another Dimension
by: Anonymous

I was 4 years old when I had my first experience, it started shortly after I recovered from a bad fever.
I was aware that I was awake the darkness was red, it felt like I was in the twilight zone or perpetual darkness and the darkness made a humming buzzing sound and the shapes or shadows that make up the darkness started joining together (Im sorry about the description here I actually don't know how to describe what I was seeing and feeling here) anyway, I feel this tingling sensation on my face (the best way for me to describe this is like raindrops lightly spraying on my face that gave a tingling sensation) followed by a high pitched whining noise. I looked at the doorway of my room a cloaked figure entered. As the figure came towards me the high pitched whining noise got higher and more intense and louder with every step. I was so scared I was frozen still, I closed my eyes and tried to scream for my mother but I couldn't move. The intensity of the frozen motion brought me out of the whole experience. This occurred 7 times in my life time, the last experience I was 15 years old. Each experience started with the same sensations everything was exactly the same it didn't matter if I was in a different room or house and with each experience I knew the cloaked figure was coming to get me and I remember always saying to myself the moment it started "oh no here we go again". I was 7 with my 2nd & 3rd experience, I couldn't see the face of the cloaked figure I tried but got afraid again and immediately tried to shut down or shut myself off like I did the first time and it worked. The 4th experience I was 9 this time I saw the face it was skeletor and the eyes were huge blue diamond like. This experience was different this time. This time I remember a red flashing light shinning through my bedroom window. I remember turning over onto my side and I could see my sister in her bed and all of a sudden her face turned into a skeleton and her arm was waving up and down. At that moment at the age of 9 I felt like I was in another world or dimension. When I was 11 years old I started telling my mother and my sister of my experiences my mother said it was just a nightmare and wouldn't here of it again but my sister devised a plan that she would do her best to try and wake me if she ever saw me freaking out in bed while I was asleep. I was 13 when my 5th & 6th experience occurred. I was ready this time, I work on my courage to face this demon, and I planned on going with him to find out what this was all about. I really tried to be brave I was older and bolder but fear got the better of me again and I shut down like I did in the past. I don't know why doing it worked for me but it did.
I would cringe into a ball so tightly and intensely until the sensations stopped. I'm 50 years old now and as I reflect, I can vividly remember every detail of my experiences. I have researched the topic of sleep paralysis but no experience ever came close to my story. I hope to reach out to anyone out there who knows anything about this, offer some answers or share similar experiences.
When I was 15 I could actually hear myself screaming in my head with fear......

demon tricked me
by: Siana

The first time I had sleep paralysis I felt no evil presence I just awoke in my dream could see I was laid in my room as id fallen asleep and I just felt so heavy and I was being sucked into my bed like I was falling towards the ground.
He second time a similar thing but I was floating above my body.
The third time was horrendous! It happened within 2 minutes of me falling asleep. I woke with the overwhelming feeling of something to the right of my bed friendly wanting to hold my hand. I reached my hand out from under my pillow and a small hand gently held it. All of a sudden this feeling turned to pure evil, it grabbed my hand hard and tried to pull my out of my bed to the floor. I resisted and tried to kick it I couldn't move I couldnt scream. It was pulling me so hard I looked over at it and it had a demon like face its head the size of a babies and its head was at floor height I couldnt see its body but it had a manly face and some sort of hood on. I was pulling away from it as hard as I could it had a really tight grip! All of a sudden I broke free and woke up. It was terrifying!
The fourth time I fell asleep on the sofa and woke with a dead body on my with its arm around me. I tried to call my boyfriend using my mobile it was flat in the dream. I managed to get up ( so not completely paralised this time) and throw the body of the man to the floor.
So pleased others have had similar experiences, I am not religious at all

Advice NEW
by: Chessu

Glad to be back here after a few years ago... So i believe many of you came here to find answers about this common phenomena. Well, as I commented before, I ve also experienced many evil encounters during my sleeps paralysis days back then, now it doesnt happen so often. So during those days with lots of paralysis I've learnt a lot about it, and I want to share it with you. First, lets point out some things about it. SP is caused by bad entities, why? Well, I tested it. Second, "why it's happening to me"? There are different reasons why these would come visit u, but the most common reason is bcs u re somewhat involved with witchcraft, or ouija, or black magic, u know... those spiritual practices. Third, some people can see them when awake, but others can't and they would mostly think they re just a product of their mind. Fourth, most people will experience this after having a frustrated and tiring day, like studing for a test all night and sleeping the next night. In this case, bad entities would hit me during those times, when i was just so stressed and my mind was too tired. Fifth, once they hit u, ur mind wakes up and u re found paralized, or in SP mode, then u see weird things happening. Now here i offer u two choices. One is the religious part. If the entity is more than u can handle, then i recommend u to say these words out loud "the power of christ compells you" or any other religious phrase. They they will mostly fade out and u wake up or u continue into lucid dreaming. You can opt to follow a christian or catholic religion if u want to end these phenomenons, otherwise follow me to the next step. If the entity is something you can handle it, then go ahead and face it. Don't get scared by it, but dont open them doors and " give them ur hand". Just show them who is the boss and stay strong until they give up and leave u alone. After this, u have the option to enter in lucid dreaming. Just think or wish where u want to be, concentrate it and plop! You will be in it doing whtever u want. Well, so after stopping reading about witchcraft, watching ghost videos and after doing some good actions, these things just stopped appearing more often. They still do, but just it became unusual. I think they come visit u if u have that "bad energy" in ur life. For those who are seeing those bad entities when ur body and mind are awake (u re in d real world) then I recommend u to change ur lifestile for good and follow any religion that can scare them away, like go to ur local church, buy sacred water, and spread it in ur room or house, together with a pray for ur loved ones or urself. I realized by doing that, some family problems improve, like if those problems come also from those bad entities haunting me. Hope all this helps and good luck with ur sp!

First visit NEW
by: Anonymous

3 weeks ago I took off my cross and told a jehovas witnes that the world would be a better place if there was no religeon and that everyone should choose science over it. God has barely crossed my mind since and the belief I had a purpose of good left me.

Within a week I had woke from sleep feel g alone and afraid like an abndoned child several times. Then a few times I felt presence of something not evil but mischievous.
The last week my girlfriend has been saying she has been seeing a shadow of a man moving around our bedroom normally near the foot of my bed, I didn't tell her that I had felt a press nice and joked the matter off, she says in the morning every few days that he was there again last night but I took no notice. She doesn't believe in God or aliens or anything at all.
last night I fell into a lucid dream and me and my brother stood over the body of jesus. Who I don't believe in even though I did believe in God.
He was dressed in white wearing a red sash and a gold crown. He rose to his feet before me not stood. Rose to standing.
I then woke into sleep paralysis and there in the doorway was the silhouette of a shadow, about 5.8ft I froze looking at it but not moving to face it. I'm not sure what happened next but I woke from it into another sp but this time the door is shut and shadows are moving s cross my bedsheets where my gf would be sleeping but she was downstairs. Then I woke for real feeling abandoned like a child.

Dark Entity NEW
by: Cat Woman

I had an episode almost 6 years ago. My husband was in prison so I was by myself with my kids in the house. It was in the middle of the night and I was laying down to sleep, eyes closed. I felt a presence in the room which I thought was my late Aunt and actually felt soothed by it. I was at the point of falling asleep when I heard the most evil voice whisper in my left ear, something in another language which I did not understand. I opened my eyes and above me was this dark shadow looking figure. It was blacker than black and once it saw me see it, it started to 'attack' me. It came at me over and over, each time it 'hit' me I would hear this loud resounding clash sound - like someone hitting cymbals together. I turned my head to scream for my daughter who was sleeping right outside my room on the couch. No sound came out of my mouth. I tried again, but nothing. I was struggling the whole time, but my body felt restrained somehow and I just couldn't move. The next thing I know, my body is going into convulsions. It lasted for more than a few seconds and when done, I just remember thinking or whispering - leave me alone. Everything stopped and I was exhausted from the attack. I could move again, picked up my phone and sent a text to a friend just saying something attacked me. I fell asleep. I then had the weirdest dream - I knew it was a dream, but it seemed different. I saw my door open, my cat walked in followed by my dog, followed by a black and white cat that I never saw before.
The next day, I told my oldest children what had happened to me, they needless to say, thought it was all a dream. Then they went to the store, when they came home, they called upstairs to me and said they found a kitten. I yelled downstairs and asked if it was black and white. Yes, they said, how did you know?

I don't know how to explain what happened that night and I'm a very logical person. I just know that it did happen. I don't believe in sleep paralysis, other than scientist putting a name to something they otherwise have no explanation for.

Best wishes to everyone on this site.

Sleep Paralysis: A Dreamer's Guide

Sleep Paralysis Treatment Book

Ever woken up paralyzed? A surprising number of us have, believe it or not. But few know the actual causes of this phenomenon, and fewer still how to exert control over it. Dream researcher and sleep paralysis expert Ryan Hurd shares breakthrough insights into how to do just that.

How This Site Was Made

In 2007 I discovered a guide to website building that would change my life. After learning from it diligently, it would eventually empower me to help Dr. Dement take his life's mission of spreading education about sleep health to the online world. Now, several years later, this site reaches over 100,000 visitors per month and counting.

The results are due in large part to the methods taught in that guide, and they are replicable for others who have knowledge of a subject they would like to share with the masses. I've detailed some of my journey here for those who might be interested.
