This is my first post so i'm a little unsure about where to start and how to go about posting something on the internet:)
A little background information: 19 year old, female.
Around 5 years ago, I had my first "sleep paralysis" experience. It all began as I was about to fall asleep, my eyes were closed and I saw three bright white lights circling me in my bed (like angels surrounding me- I don't know what they actually were). During my dream, or more accurately- nightmare, I saw a woman's head (beheaded with blood dripping, eyes open) hanging from a rope above a garden water fountain in the most beautiful garden I've ever seen, with vines and pink flowers. As a I came across this woman's head, I started to scream in my dream but nothing came out of my mouth, I tried to run but physically I felt half asleep/ half awake. I felt as though a demon was sitting on my chest and the bright lights were no longer there. I started to run in my dream but something was chasing me from behind and in my waking state, I could not move as I had been paralyzed. It was the most traumatizing dream that I've ever had in my life. I am curious as to what this may have been? Could they have been angels or demons?
Ever since that day, I've been having "precognitive" dreams where I would dream something, and I will come across that exact same thing within the next 24 hours to a week at most (the dreams are very vivid). For example, the other night I dreamt that there was an evil red fox in my house, scraping its nails on my door trying to kill me. It hugged me, as does my dog and squeezed me so tight like a snake does to its prey, that somehow I got electrocuted. Then, earlier today I was walking my dog, and in bright daylight- there was the exact same red fox on the street, staring at me and my dog. The weird thing is, I associated the fox (in my dream) with my dog as they are both fury, and yet- today whilst I was walking my dog, I saw the fox which tried to attack my dog. Also, I once had a dream of a colourful elephant then the next day in my biology class we learned about thermo-regulation and on the teacher's slide was an elephant with different colours (representing the different temperatures within the elephant's body). I know that sounds weird but I never saw that elephant nor knew anything about the topic beforehand. I am wondering whether or not I am seeing the future because these are just a few of many examples.
I don't know if my sleep paralysis experience is linked to me having these dreams but they only just started 3 months after that paralysis dream. Also, I've had a dream that I've had contact with aliens and they came down to take me, once the spaceship opened there was a bright white light and I don't remember the rest of the dream/ don't know if there was any more to it or if it was a dream or real life. I am a strong believer in alien life and am wondering maybe they tried to contact me in some way. I frequently meditate and also have out of body experiences whilst doing so.
I would like to know you thoughts regarding these experiences I am having and/or if i'm the only weird one that's going through this.
Extra note: I've always been one to question, not into technology and gadgets as well as being a very peculiar individual (quite a loner/ enjoy alone time very much). I don't know what's wrong with me or if it's all in my head (of course it is) :)
