My name is Ashley. I don't even know where to begin with my story. I believe to have had a Spiritual Awakening within the past few days. I am extremely greatful for this gift as it has opened my eyes and made me feel more in tune with myself and everyone around me. Ever since then, I have developed abilities such as strong senses (taste, touch, hearing), the ability to notice more things such as "coincidences" or moments that normal people wouldn't focus their attention on, I have seen flashes of lights/shapes out of the corners of my eyes every now and then, see shapes and figures when I close my eyes, and have almost had an out of body experience. I have not experienced/felt anything negative along with this gift, until last night.
I woke up at about 5am this morning (along with this gift comes inconsistent sleep patterns) and was unable to fall back asleep. I felt a strong energy, unlike anything I've ever experienced in the past few days. I felt my head being tapped on, my body felt tingly. Thinking I was imagining things, I decided to close my eyes and try my best to fall asleep. Unable to fall asleep, I open my eyes again, and just lay there. Thinking I am still awake, I turn over to my left and see my sister (we fell asleep in the same room last night) and ask her if she is awake. She mumbles something and all of a sudden, she reaches over and lays her arm on my neck. I feel her arm get tighter and tighter and somehow find myself on the edge of the bed moving towards the floor with her arm getting tighter around my neck. I say, "Kelly why are you choking me I can't breathe?" Thinking she's asleep and doing it in her sleep, I hear no response. I then wake up in a state of panick and breathing rapidly, only to find my sister dead asleep next to me. Thinking it was just a very vivid dream, I try and close my eyes again. Again, I am awake and unable to fall asleep all the way. I open my eyes thinking that I am awake, I feel something grabbing my hip and right arm violently and dragging me out of my bed and to the floor. I don't know what is going on. I hit the floor and this time actually wake up.
I wake up with a feeling of dread and misery and darkness, I feel a dark, very heavy energy around me. I wake up with a numbing sensation where the invisible force grabbed me on my arm and leg/hip, and I also wake up with a sharp pain in my head and a tingly sensation. I strongly believe those weren't just dreams, as they happened in a matter of 10 minutes back to back.
I believe my abilities are getting stronger by the day and it scares me. Has anyone with/without abilities experienced anything similar to what I've just experienced? Any comments/feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you
