I was in an old very dark, dreary house that I did not recognize. There was a girl that I am pretty sure I don't know (I don't remember exactly what she looked like) there with me. We were standing there and I think having a conversation about something but I can't exactly remember. Then all of a sudden I was thrown very gently and almost in slow motion to the floor by something I could not see or feel. The girl just stood there staring as this happened. Then I could feel myself being sucked or pulled along the floor very slowly until I was at a wall. I was kind of huddled in a ball the whole time. It seemed as though there was some force holding me there. I was paralyzed and could not move and was just stuck on this wall. The girl walked by me and I was begging her to help me or for someone to help me but it was like she could not see me or hear me.
The whole time this was going on I could actually feel the force pulling me and feel a floor underneath me. I knew at some point that it was a dream. Probably when I was not being seen or heard. From what I have been able to find online I guess this is referred to as a lucid dream. When I realized I was dreaming a very real, very disturbing dream I tried really hard to wake up. I was fighting and fighting and I could feel my heart racing.
I then thought I had woken up until I was in that same unfamiliar dreary old farm house. There were what seemed to be a light on in every room but not in the hallway where I was. I could see a light and people all dressed in black in every room and all faceless it seems. Every room I entered, the lights would go out and the people would disappear and I would be alone in the dark. There was one room I entered where the lights went out but the people did not disappear. It was a kitchen and there was a woman washing the dishes with her back to me and another woman leaning against the counter. I would tried to talk to them and I started screaming but they just continued what they where doing as if I was not there.
I starting feeling like my heart was going to explode and again was just like ok this is too weird I have had enough. Wake up... Wake up... Please wake up. Finally I woke up and I felt like I had just risen from being under water for a very long time. I was gasping for air.
I haven't been feeling right all day. Not only do I feel like I did not sleep at all last night, like I had been running a marathon in my sleep, I also have this horrible feeling like something bad is going to happen. Usually I am pretty intuitive about these things. If I feel like something bad will happen it usually does (even if it is fairly minor and only of importance to me).
I have had a history of night terrors, sleep walking and talking. I also used to have these horrible experiences when I was sleeping where it wasn't really a dream but it was like a color and intensity and it was pulsing and pounding in my face and getting closer and closer until I could no longer breath. Then I would wake up gasping for air.
Please give me your input on this... Has anyone else had any similar experiences?
Also (and this just makes me feel like maybe I am losing it) but when I finally got my self to wake up... I had the words "out of body experience" almost etched into the inside of my eyelids... Besides trying to calm down it was the only thing I could think of...
Thank you for letting me share my experience. I look forward to anyone's input.
