I know this is not a dream interpretation site but my ability to know things before they happen mostly comes to me in dreams. I have had many dreams that come true. They are typically there to warn me of something bad or explain any feelings of "impending doom" I tend to get. So I take what happens while I sleep pretty seriously.
I have never experienced sleep paralysis in my life until last year when I started dating my current boyfriend. I awoke from a bad dream, only I was not awake, I was still dreaming. In my dream I was getting a drink in the kitchen and I felt like I was being watched I looked out the window and saw a shadowy figure outside my apartment. I decided to go back to bed feeling uneasy and when I got back to bed the figure was in my room and I was lifted up above the bed I could see my boyfriend sleeping below and I screamed but no sound came out I tried to struggle but could not move. All I wanted was for him to help me and he was oblivious to my peril.
Ever since that first time it has happened many times after but I'm just laying in bed I can see the room even though my eyes are closed unable to move or scream just feeling this darkness surrounding him. It's confusing because there is nothing about him when I am awake that would lead anyone to believe anything negative about him. I just feel overwhelmed with this idea that these dreams are trying to warm me because without them there wouldn't have been any doubt about him but I wonder can people just have darkness surrounding them without being dark in some way or is this another example of my dreams warning me?
My daughter seems to get very enraged around him sometimes for no apparent reason, just his presence in the room can set her off, but it's not that she doesn't like him it's just random. She seems to wake up crying most times after I have sleep paralysis and she started getting night terrors around the same time this started happening to me. Has anyone ever experienced someone that seems to be surrounded by darkness?
