Real Psychic Experiences

Touched By A Spirit


I just moved into my new apartment about a month ago. I feel asleep that night and I was exhausted from the days work. My sleep was disturbed when I was grabbed on the leg by something. At this point, I do not recall having any sort of a dream right before it happened. I jumped and opened my eyes quickly. It felt like a hand was grabbing (squeezing) my leg just above the knee. I closed my eyes again because I was so afraid and thought there may have been someone in my room. I lay there as still as I could be and slowly began to open my eyes.

When I looked around, there was a black shadow of a man sitting on the side of my bed. I sat quietly for a few seconds and just looked at the figure. I was so scared that I actually began to speak because I still did not know if it was a real person. I said "hello?" And slowly it went away. I sat in bed for a little while longer and turned on my TV so I could fall asleep again. I could still feel my knee where 'it' had grabbed me. I thought I may end with a bruise there because of how long the feeling stayed on my knee and how intense the feeling was.

Although I could not see features of the 'man,' his figure did not look like anyone that I had known in my life (alive or dead). He seemed to be tall and skinny. I'm wondering if someone was trying to get me for some reason, or tell me something. I was terrified, but at the same time, I do not believe he was trying to hurt me. Since then I have not had anymore experiences like that one, but I am continuing to have strange things happening to me more and more that I do not understand.

YVE - I've never had that... Odd. I have voyaged several times. It sounds logical to me so I'll try to see if that happens in the next One (s) if one happens. It sounds a little like you are picking up on stuff, otherworld stuff, and starting to scare yourself. Ease up maybe. Fear isn't pleasant. Some of us push ahead at times, and I am a pushy type probably, but I don't think fear is the way to go. At that point, leave it.

I'm going to through out an alternate theory.

This is just a guess but I think what you saw and felt was you trying to get back into your body. Sometimes when we sleep our spirits can go drifting off. That's called astral projection/catalepsy.

Now when its time to come back into our bodies, SOMETIMES we don't do it gracefully. It can feel like someone is touching us or holding us down. It feels like were having trouble breathing or like someone is choking us and SOMETIMES our physical eyes can see our spirit trying to get it. It freaks a lot of people out at first.

If you think its astral Ask God (or whomever you believe in) for a smooth exit & re-entry and hopefully that will alleviate the anxiety.
