Real Psychic Experiences



I have a few unrelated experiences to recount. I would appreciate if someone could tell me what exactly I might have experienced. Granted though, I had to omit one because I suspect it is somewhat inappropriate.

This is the first: The most recent of my unusual experiences occurred when I was 13, about some six years ago. I was taking my usual after-school nap upstairs in my room. Before getting into bed, I had locked my room door for privacy just in case, because I live in a house with two younger brothers. I got home from school around 3:30, and went right to sleep.

While in bed, I woke up after a while. My eyes opened, and looking at my clock, the time was 5:00. However, I soon discovered that my eyes were almost the only part of my body that could move. I tried to sit up, but couldn't. At first I could feel my body, but seconds later I lost feeling in the entire left half of my body. It felt as if something was entering me through the top left part of my head, and creeping downward. As this was happening, I started losing sight in my left eye, and saw disgusting colors blending together in green, purple and orange, and it looked like colored TV static. I tried to scream, but couldn't. Instead, a low, guttural roar came out of my throat. It was so low-pitched that it couldn't have been my own voice, as I am a soprano. It sounded completely otherworldly.

While this was happening, I could still see out of my right eye. Everything in the room looked calm except for what was happening inside me. I tried to writhe and kick, but to no avail. Now this is the strange part. My body was freaking out, but my inner voice was completely calm and serene. At this time, I was very religious, and so my calm inner voice spoke to the entity or whatever it was that was happening. I said to it, "My soul belongs to Jesus Christ; you have no place here..." And it left! It was like it got sucked out, and it felt like I was being jarred as it left.

As soon as this happened, I started screaming like I was going to die. The first person I thought of to call for help was my brother, and I kept screaming his name. After calling several times, he came running upstairs and burst in the door asking if I was alright. Finally I was able to move completely when he came in, and I shot up in my bed. It was the first time in my life I had ever experienced a cold sweat.

Another weird part: I mentioned that the door was locked. When he came in and I recovered a little, I asked him if the door had been locked when he tried to get in. He said it wasn't locked. It only unlocks from the inside, so I don't know how the door came unlocked.

Since then, I had experienced this on several other occasions, but they were MUCH less intense, and nothing like the first time. I heard no voices, only felt the paralysis and saw ugly colors, and only for a few seconds instead of minutes long.

Eventually, this stopped happening altogether, though I can't remember how recent the last one was. It may have only been 2 years ago, but I'm not sure now. I don't know how the thing, whatever it was, left me, but I think it had something to do more with the fact that I was calm in telling it to leave rather than the content of what I said to it.

The whole thing is just a mess though... Does anyone know what this experience was?

It sounds to me like a classic episode of sleep paralysis. You can do some research on the topic through google if you want to know more about it. In fact, several of the replies to your story also sound more like sleep paralysis than anything.

I know from my own experiences with it that it can be rather bizarre and terrifying. I've 'seen' very odd things (though when I think back on it, I'm not really completely certain my eyes were open though I definitely thought they were at the time) from my son--without his face--to strange, demonic looking cats flying over my bed. Once I even saw spiders all over the walls. I've heard a variety of odd things from clicks to the sound of a helicopter directly behind me on the bed to breathing.

Often I feel not only as if I can't move but also as though there's actually something holding me down. Sometimes I feel very intense fear as if there's something evil in the room with me.

It's such a weird and frightening experience that it's rather easy to assume it's some sort of psychic experience or demonic attack but I strongly feel that in most cases, experiences like these have a very logical explanation.

Incidentally, I usually have an episode when I take a nap during the day outside my normal sleep routine, have disrupted my sleep routine by not getting enough sleep or when I sleep on my back. And they've decreased in intensity over the years as well. Despite all this and despite knowing what's happening as it's happening, it doesn't take away from the feeling of fear or helplessness one bit.

Hi Ryuusei, Don't take this wrong, but it made me feel good to read your story; that I'm not alone. I had a similar experience around age 13. It was the wee hours of the morning when I awoke. I experienced being unable to move, except my eyes. The entity entered my body through my nose, filled my chest and shot down to my legs. As it was entering my body, I was being pushed out through my solar plexus. Telling it to "leave in the name of Jesus" didn't help. It finally left when I calmly told it to leave the same way it came. Just as you did. There weren't any colors while this happened and knew I couldn't scream so I didn't try. I just felt tears stream down my face. This entity had been with me for a long time before and after the experience. To this day, I continue to occasionally wake in the middle of the night finding entities in my room. Though I can't give a reason why this happened to you, I hope you gained some insight from reading my story. 😁

Ryuusei- if it was a potential astral projection experience, you may have fought it off. I did this back at the end of 2000. Saw plane crashes, went to them before they happened and fought off doing them. Took about five or six nights in a row. Then, last year they started happening again. That's when I heard the term, astral voyage, and found this site. It is your choice. You can stop them, or at least I did.

Hey everyone, thanks for your comments. I was really confused especially because most of the weird things I've experienced happened (what seems like to me) a long time ago. They don't happen anymore, and I don't know why.

Hello, this happened to me for the first time when I was a teenager probably about 16. This first time is the most intense, then your own power starts to grow. You are off to a good start, I don't think you need any statues or any other kinds of gaven images. Stay away from that stuff. All the power you need is within you. The name of Jesus Christ and His power, which you can summon and use, is the most you'll need. I have had these experiences for a long time and so far I haven't needed anything else.

Try some fasting and meditating so that your path is more clear to you, you will learn your purpose and increase your strength.

You are in for a bumpy road, make no mistake in that. But you will probably also get to help a few souls as well. 😐

I had something similar happen to me too, minus the ugly colors. I was having a weird lucid dream (a lucid dream is a type of dream in which you are aware that you are dreaming), when suddenly the dream changed. I felt this HUGE vibration, and I heard this electrical buzzing noise. I coudlnt move. Suddenly, I was floating near the ceiling and at the same time I felt I was in my bed. The weird part was that I could see both the ceiling and the bedcovers at the same time. Slowly I came back to my bed.

hello Ryuusei, your story reminded me of same experience when I was in my early 20's. The type of job I had that time was so exhausting, like men's work, a typical Bureau of Customs Representative because I was dealing with Import Liquidation so I had to be at the BOC everyday. That happened to me 3 times. Whenever I come home at 2pm, I would rest then I would go to office around 4pm, to show up because anyway, office time is up to 6pm. Anyway, before I didn't know how to sleep sideways, I used to sleep like a dead person with both hands on my tummy. The first time I had some paralysis as how you termed it, I also locked my door because that door opens by itself, so I always put the latch. That time I have not really gone to sleep when suddenly I heard a voice calling me, but familiar sound, I thought it was my sister. Then my body became stiff, couldn't move, my eyes couldn't open then I heard a weird sound (before the movie Ghost was shown, that sound where the soul gets out of the body, that's the sound I heard) and felt something like I was too cold and like somebody's trying to get my soul. I tried to move but couldn't so finally I said,"God please help me, I can't move". Then probably God came to the rescue, suddenly I was able to move my big toe then I woke up. It happened 2 more times then I started learning how to sleep sideways. Even at this time, that thing still taking chance on me whenever it's possible. I don't know if that's what they call OBE.

I just had a flash for you. I am very disturbed by your story. Get 4 gargoyles, lions, elephants, anything strong. Gargoyles are best. Put one on each corner of your bed, room or doorway. Gargoyles are to chase/keep away evil.

Hope this helps

I have had a some what simiular experience but it was with evil. I don't mean to scare you but I am always very blunt. I could not move nor speak and he kept laughing at me I could hear him. The best thing to do is what you did. I used do not fear the only thing I fear is god. You could also say this house belongs to god you are not welcome here. Burning a white candle for 7 days but don't let it cause a fire. Hope I helped a little bit.

I think what brought voyaging to mind was that is the time (your awake phase), if I'm wanting to voyage as opposed to fighting from having one, that I have the most success. I go to sleep not exhausted, wake up several hours later, and hover in that half awake phase, rested, and relax but I'm awake with sleep about to happen. Sometimes it happens when asleep but spontaneiously. Trying to have a trip, this is the best awake/asleep phase.

I haven't had an experience like yours so not much help. I have had astral voyages. They happened long before I knew other people had them or that there was even the term astral voyage. It was scary and my brain had trouble processing what was happening in this new experience. I thought just a weird dream. Then I saw things happen in the future while on a few of these trips, clearly, and even told the husband and my sister. I saw my experiences on the news, one in seven days and one the next afternoon. The one that was seven days, I dreamed four nights in a row at the same time, voyaged. Anyway, I now think we really can travel in some way. But, we don't understand what's happening and interpret it in different ways. Next time, if it happens again, read up and understand the basics of astral projection/voyages, try not to get freaked out, and see if that is what your body is trying to prepare you for. I can feel when it's about to happen, my body feels a certain, unique, way. Tensing, preparing, getting still.
