Physical Pain, And Forced Out Of A Dream. What's Happening?


I have no idea what just happened to me but I am really scared.

It happened while I was asleep and a little while after. I am a lucid dreamer (among other abilities). I cannot quite control my dreams consistently, but I can sometimes. The one thing that has always been guaranteed is that I always know I'm dreaming, and I can always wake myself up. But not last night. Last night I knew I was dreaming like usual, but I felt like there was this battle going on between good and evil (whether around me or in me I don't know), and it felt like something was going wrong, I guess that\'s the only way I can put it. I don't know how else to describe it. It felt like something was gripping my heart, making it pump faster and harder. It hurt, like actual real physical pain. That's when I knew something was wrong.

I had to know what was going on, so I tried to shift my dream. Which I, up until that point, had never tried before in my life. It worked and the dream shifted into darkness. It was like it was in this whole realm of darkness, with a kind of floor that looked like it was the kind of concrete found in a warehouse. I was in front of this illuminated spot, like it was just under a street lamp almost. I'm not quite sure what I saw, it was gone so fast. I know I did see fighting, but I don't know any of the details, (like what was fighting, with what were they fighting, etc.) Before I could really see what was going on it was like I was ripped from that part of, I don't know what it was really, I guess I can call it part of my dream. It is only looking back on it now that I realize that what I saw wasn't with my (dream) eyes, but with my minds eye (I think that's what it's called.). Like all of my possibly clairvoyant experiences have been.

The whole time I was in that part of my dream, that gripped feeling on my heart continued. It even continued throughout the rest of my dream until I could finally wake up. I won't bother to try and explain the next part of my dream, it is too confusing to explain. The only part I can understandably explain is the gripping feeling continued until I woke up. It took a long while to wake my self up. Normally it's instantaneous and insanely easy, but this time it was so hard, and it felt like something was forcing me to stay in the dream. At this point my heart hurt so bad, and I was so scared that I was going to die that I don't know if I saw anything else.

Once I had woken myself up there was this tingly feeling all around my neck, like someone hand their hand around it. I usually get this sensation on my back, arms, legs, face, and shoulders. And it feels like someone is gently touching me or reassuring me. This was different, it felt angry and violent. When the feeling had stopped, I think by willing it to go away hard enough (I can do that quite often), I was so scared that I couldn't move for a little while. Eventually I sat up and turned on the lights. I have not been to sleep since a little before 4 in the morning, nor do I think I will be able to sleep again until my body forces me to sleep. I am very scared and would like help as soon as someone can. Please help me!

Hello DaysieTanner,

It sounds to me like you had an episode of sleep paralysis. The only reason I say that is because the same thing happened to me. I had a "nightmare" (if you read my post you'll understand better) and I couldn't move or get out either even though I tried.

I've never been one to believe in negative energies before that sleep paralysis however, now I feel that it may have been a demon or something trying to harm me. I think it happens only during sleep because we are in a different state of conciousness where they have access to our most vulnerable state of existence. I know that sounds a little irrational and I know how scary it must have been.

To help the situation, and ward off the negative energies I would recommend burning dried olive leaves and coal in a little pot. Allow the smoke to permeate the bedroom so that you can have a good nights rest. Also meditation is good for opening your third eye and balancing your chakras. You can try this before you go to sleep but make sure you don't fall asleep or you may be in a lucid dream, which isn't so bad. I would also recommend that you thank the universe for existing. Yes that may sound a little obvious but addressing the universe will ensure that you are "giving back". When you do so, you can be most certain that the universe/ God will protect you from any harm that you may incur as your will be refreshed with a calm and positive energy. Also this will ensure that there is a constant connection between you and the main life energy source. As long as you have this connection, and think about the positive- negative energies/ spirits will stay away. This is because every soul/ being in the universe has a certain vibrational frequency. If they are not on the same vibrational level as you whilst in the unconscious state, then they can do no harm as they are at a lower energy state whilst you'll be in a higher energy state. Balancing chakras through meditation will therefore replenish your energy level.

A lady on youtube- Lilan Eden is really good at guided meditation. Here's one of her third eye sessions

Best of luck! Legalalien5

emotionlessthug, when I say that I felt like I was being forced to stay in my dream I mean that I couldn't leave. I have always just been able to wake up from what ever dream I am in, but this time it took power I didn't even know I had to wake myself up. It was like something stronger than me was keeping me from waking up.

I don't really know how many dreams I get while i'm asleep. It varies with every sleep cycle, sometimes it's none and sometimes it could have a minimum of four. Its nearly impossible to tell.

After I woke up the tingly feeling around my neck lasted until I mentally forced the entity to leave, which again took more power than I knew I had, I would say it lasted for about thirty seconds or more. But I don't really know how long it was.

I thank you all for your help. I will be using all of your suggestions. Most of them are already things I can do, and have done in the past. I will continue to use them, as well as integrate the new ones. For those of you who left an email address I will contact you for additional help. Thank you very much.

I will just throw this out there, I know many people are not "religious", but my negative spiritual experiences brought me straight into the arms of Jesus, my savior, who saved me, shielded me, and put an end to these frightening spiritual occurrences. Asking for spirit guides, angels, white light bubbles, all other new age type protections from evil did not work.

It's said that praying the rosary is the scourge of the devil, because the devil can not stand that Holy Mary, the mother of God, has been granted such a place of spiritual power. I find if you are under spiritual attack repeating the Hail Mary prayer will cause the evil to retreat.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with thee;
Blessed art thou amongst 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.

It felt like something was forcing me to stay in the dream.

Can you be more specific?

What do you mean by something was forcing you to stay in your dream?

How many dreams do you get while you're asleep?

Once I had woken myself up there was this tingly feeling all around my neck, like someone hand their hand around it.

How long did this tingly feeling last around your neck?

[at] DaysieTanner, First thing you need to do is build courage to not allow the emotions of fear to take control of you. As this was a terrifying dream experience - you are still here today and that is very important 😊. I agree with Victoria that praying to God will help you but it has to be done strongly through faith that there is a higher power connected to our souls that may grant protection over you, but also remember that sometimes certain things are permitted for a reason and you should not hold doubt.

Victoria mentioned shielding before bad and what that basically means is using your spiritual energy to manifest a shield of white light protection around you, I say do this while you choose the time to pray deeply. Praying on energy can help boost it 10x more but it is all upon the effort of faith you put into yourself and the creator.

If you would like more advice or help you could also email me at oneeyedpirate [at]

Hope to hear from you 😊

I really suggest you shield yourself before bed and while awake if you can.

From your story I think you've been seriously attacked by a demon in your sleep. It was keeping you locked in your dream world to do something to you. I don't know if it wanted to drain your energy or put a seal on you.
Praying God and your guardian angel if you know them, and shielding with white light is going to help you because light dissolves darkness, it's their natural weakness.
Turning the lights on can help you stay calmer but it can still show up.

If you want help or want to talk about it me and my friends can help you

I am hoping others with more understanding can comment and hopefully provide better advice than me.

What I can say, though, is that I have been attacked in my sleep in similar ways. What tends to help is to pray for protection, make sure you are on the right path (which you will know by paying attention to what I refer to as your internal compass), ask for forgiveness for anything you did wrong, and then don't be afraid. Know you are protected.

If it helps to sleep with the light on, play meditation music, or have a spiritual holy book (e.g. Bible, Torah, Quran) next to you, you can do this. In reality, I'm not certain it makes a difference.

What makes a difference is to have confidence in yourself and in the spiritual energy/life force of the universe, and understand that these being may not hurt you unless, on some level, you allow it. The next time they attack you, tell them this is not where they belong, they have no power over you, and they need to leave. It is important to say this with confidence. If they do not leave, ask for help from a higher power. Still, do not be afraid because those beings have no real power over you.

You will be okay. Do not worry. Ask for protection, have confidence, and then hopefully you will be sleeping through the night in no time! 😊
