Something Gets in my Body


Basically my story is something similar to a story I read here where I can't move my body; somewhat. I've had different occasions where I would clatter my teeth or move my toes. I turn on the TV and go to sleep. A couple of minutes after, this energy just jumps in my body and doesn't let me move my body. I wake myself out of it but as soon as I go to sleep, it happens again, not until I wash my face or put my Rosary does it stop. At first I tried to deal with it, but lately it's been worse. It happens more.

It even happened to me while in class. I was in school and I decided to take a nap in class. Suddenly it occurs and I can't move, I can hear everyone talking around me, but I can't wake up out of my sleep. That happened to me one time. Mostly it's at night. One of the weirdest things, is that when it happens to me, I try to wake up out it. It's like this energy flowing through my body, I can't move, I'm trying to open my eyes, it's very uncomfortable... I finally wake up out of it and I immediately put on my Rosary. This Rosary, I've had since I was a kid and it's blessed. When I put it on, I go back to sleep. I easily start falling asleep again, I start to feel like if that energy (I wonder what to call it) is trying to come back in my body and something is blocking it. Several times when it has happened, I put my Rosary on and it never comes back or I feel like it's trying to come back again and it can't. I think that's a clue, but a clue to what?

Something that also began happening is that, when it's going to happen, I sense it about 30 minutes before it happens. Like I'm watching TV and out of know where, I get this bad feeling telling me it's going to happen to you tonight, and for sure it does. Energy flowing through my body and that I can't move is the only way to describe it... I mean, it's very uncomfortable, nothing compared to a nightmare. Sometimes I feel as I'm not going to wake up or pass away and I just pray...

Lately, it's happened when I'm with my girlfriend and she's encountered it happen to me. She described to me that my facial expression is like I'm straining, although I can't move my body, I attempted to clatter my teeth, to give her a sign that it was happening to me. The 2nd time it happened around her, she tried to wake me up by touching my face and nodding it left to right, I can feel her touch me and I still couldn't wake up... That's some scary shiat... The third time and last time so far that it happened, I began to clatter my teeth again so I could give my girlfriend a sign it was happening... I then hear a voice praying which I figured was my girlfriend praying for me. Same thing happens, I couldn't move and this bad energy rushing in me. I wake up and I tell her,"I can't believe this happened again, you were praying for me right?, I heard you". She seems shocked, she tells me, "how do you know?, yes I was praying for you, but in my head..."

It's like the more it happens, it gets worse or something new happens with it, what's next? That's the most I can describe about it. I'm trying to seek help. Please comment on this... Thank you

We both share something in common, these very unpleasant experiences. May I ask, how many times has this happened to you? You say that this happened to you as soon as you tried to get life together with God… please don’t take this the wrong way, I am only trying to help: when you state you want to get your life together with God, does this imply that you were going through some difficult moments in your life and looked for help in God? To the extent where you were under a lot of stress and perhaps throwing off your normal sleeping habits? These are actually triggers for sleep paralysis. You don’t have to believe me, that’s ok. I only kindly ask you to consider the possibility that this may be a condition that you are triggering as a result of stress and lack of rest and therefore can control.
In the end if you choose to believe that this is the work of a Demon, my advice still applies. Just consider it, always keep calm. Whether it is because you know that God is protecting you or whether its because you are confident that you will snap out of this trance, just wait it out. I PROMISE you, you will snap out of it. Once again, I know this because it has already happened to you and you managed to survive it unharmed. Just as you have survived this once, you will survive it again. I do not represent any organization, nor am I trying to trick you into believing that there is no evil; evil is definitely out there… I just hate to see you go through the same that I was going through... I thought the same thing for years and years… it was horrible just to go to sleep thinking that it may be happening again. Imagine dreading going to sleep... It should be a moment of rest and comfort, and all of a sudden it turns into an act of peril and fear. I don’t want you to fear sleep… sleep is good. I am almost certain that if this has happened to you more than once, invariably all the times it has happened a lot of stress was involved and you probably slept poorly. Take the time to think about and consider the alternative.

That is all…

I remember when I was over my boyfriend house. I felt like it was going to happen to me that night because we were sleep with all of the lights out except for a dim candle. I started to hear a humming sound and saw a dark presence out of the corner of my eyes. I was absolutely terrified and tried to shout. My body was being held down, squished almost and it really hurt. When I shouted it came out muffly but my boyfriend heard it and popped up. He started looking at me and asked if I was ok, then he looked over my shoulder down at the floor. I said, "What?". He said, "Nothing, I thought I saw something moving on the floor..." I knew that it was a demon. That was the first time someone else saw what I saw. I just prayed for protection from God. I asked God to let his angels surround me while I rest. People often debate christianity but this is my personal proof that there is a God.

I talked to my pastor about it. It has happened to him and my father who is also a pastor. If your thinking its a presence your right. Something is there. The devil knows that you have a blessing coming or you were meant to do something for God. He wants to scare you out of it. Out of all my brothers and sisters this has only happened to me. It started happening as soon as I decided I was going to get my life together with God. You can call it sleeping paralysis if you want, but feeling a force hold you down, strange voices, and having nightmares---there's nothing scientific about that. For all those who believe keep your bibles near you, open it to a verse... You have to ask God to cover you in his blood and protect you from evil. When it starts to happen rebuke the devil in the name of Jesus. This always work! God Bless

Oh and I forgot to mention that the common denominator in all of my experiences is that I was very much stressed and as a result I had very little rest (final exams, job interview, some fight). I usually remember this because I usually leave everything until the last minute, and yesterday was not the exception. I had an interview today and yesterday I stayed up late brushing up on some theory. Sure enough I had a sleep paralysis episode. Being used to it, I went through my normal breathing routine and make it through calmly.
Sad to say but at this very moment, it is 1 o’clock in the morning and I have to wake up for work at 5. Talk about vicious circle. I just found out about the stress and bad rest triggering this piece of sh*t condition, so gimme a break here. Hell, I just found out that I have has a name! I’m not crazy! YEAH BABY! Guess I’ll have to start resting and smoke some pot to get them stress levels where they need to be. Hope this helps some poor bastard out there trying to deal with this BS condition.
Saludos, mi gente Linda!

As is for many of you, it’s a relief that I’m not the only one with these freak episodes. After doing some research and asking Mr. Google, I’m actually relieved that it has a name. I have been having these episodes for the last 7 years. As for many, the first time it was a real F***ing trip. I’m talking big time paranoia man! The fact that you can’t move, talk, barely breathe while you are completely aware of the state that you are in just makes it all worse. So there you are trying to figure out who, what and why… all while you are massively freaking out. Anyway I’m watching a movie right now and it’s pretty damn good so I will briefly say what I have come to say.
First some simple advice…. I completely understand the situation; the best advice is to keep calm as it will most certainly pass. I know this because, to this day, we have all survived it. If you are absolutely compelled to panic, do it in an orderly fashion. You cannot move any limb, but you CAN breathe. Once again, I know this because you are still alive and reading this message. What I have done is use my breathing as a means to make sounds. First concentrate on exhaling as much air as you can while trying to make sounds. You can’t move your mouth, so the tongue will have to suffice while you are trying to articulate any words. If you try hard enough you can emit a sound loud enough for someone to hear you and eventually come by and help you snap out of it. This actually happened to me once, my old heard me and gently woke me up. He knew I was going through some crazy trance... I was sooooo glad he heard me and woke me up, I was having a real crappy moment there. Anyway, over the years I have learned that as we sometimes sleep alone there may not be anyone there to hear you, so basically you are left alone trying to keep your Sh*t together. So once again, as sure as you are alive today, you WILL snap out of it. Concentrate on your breathing and you will snap out of it.

Ignorance leads us to believe that this condition is of paranormal origin. Sort of like the Aztecs believe that the Sun, was the serpent god and believing that they were the center of the universe. Things we don’t understand often receive the goofiest explanations. All I’m trying to say that is that sometimes the most elegant and simplest of the explanations is the most logical. Sex Demons? Satan? I believe in God, but I also believe in science and in logic. The explanation is simple: Sleep Paralysis. It makes things easier doesn’t it? Or is it more appealing to think that you are haunted by spirits? I think not. So dude, nothing gets in your body.

Anyway, check out these sites:

ive had something like that happen once.
i was sleeping on the couch and its like I woke up because I could see everything around me but at the same time I also saw myself on a dock/pier by the ocean. There were these dudes that put me up on one of those execution/hanging things they had back in the days. And I could swear that I was literally getting hanged because I was choking and at the last second before passing out I managed to throw myself off the couch and get out of it. I just want to say that this can be dangerous.

i have experienced the same feeling. It happened to me a lot a few years ago and then it all stopped until last night it happened again. It really scares me because I'm not sure I believe in spirits and ghosts. I get this feeling like pins and needles throughout all of my body, I can't move can just about move me fingers and toes but that's a real struggle and can't speak at all. I hear this really weird noise like a screeching. Its really weird but once I felt like somebody sat on top of me and then another time I felt like something tickled my stomach. And it happens to my sister aswell a lot. Nobody else in the house except me and my sis that gets it. Its horrible. What is it and why do we get it?

I had a similar experience. I was lying in bed trying to fall asleep and my mind was drifting off to sleep. Then it felt like I was being pushed and I could hardly breath. I was unable to speak or move then I kind of grunted to get out of it and it worked I was very spaced out after it. I didn't hear any voices but I sensed someone was standing over my bed which was very scary. Weird! If it was a spirt or something I hope it goes away.

basically, this is some kind of a little stress... There are lot of explations regarding with this concern, but stress is one of the possible cause why you're having this kind of what we called "feelings" sometimes you will hear vioces and sometimes you will experience seeing moving objects... But as I have said awhile ago, we have a lot of explations regarding with this.

You can try to do some meditations and try other stuffs that will relax your mind. That sometimes help you.

WOW. I am so glad that there are other people out there that are experiencing the same thing that I have. This has been happening to me since I was about 8 that I can remember and I'm 24 now. It seems to be getting more intense each time that it happens but the last time that it happened really freaked me out... This is what happend... It was like 1:00 a.m. And I woke up really thirsty so I got something to drink and went back to bed. THE next thing I know I wake up( or I thought I did) I couldn't move my body or speak. I heard evil raspy voices and it sounded like one said the devils going to git' cha! I KNOW THIS SOUNDS CRAZY but I swear this REALLY happend. I was so scared that I called my friend over and she said that every time I drifted off to sleep that it felt like I was straining or something was holding me down. Now I have done research on this and I've heard everthing from sleep paralysis to incubi and succubi( which are sex demons) and what is really weird is that my friend has the same thing happen to her and she is a Virgin and it is said that incubi (male sex demon) prey on virgins and women that don't have intercourse with men alot. Well I'm not a virgin but I am a lesbian! LOL What is going on can someone PLEASE HELP ME!

I too have experienced the same thing. Often, I sense it before an episode happens. Now it just casually crosses my mind until I fall asleep, but the sensation has gotten stronger because I feel like I'm finally embracing it and my body is somehow adjusting. I've also noticed that my experiences happen within the first 30 minutes of sleep. It begins with a dream and a tingling sensation (similar to when your foot falls asleep) but it's all over. While I can feel this, I cannot move my body. I always pull myself out of it. I can see but I'm not completely inside myself. When I do come out, I wake shortly after, look at my alarm and see that 30 minutes have passed. How is this possible within the first 30 minutes? In school I remember learning that you have to be in full REM sleep to expereince any sort of dream.

Tonight, for the first time I heard voices - a lot of voices like I was in a crowded room. Then, someones voice, a girl's grew louder. She pleaded, "I don't want to die..." Then I heard two more female voices that sounded older, and I felt that they were talking about me and almost praising me for staying relaxed. I was facing the wall and hesitated about turning around. I was certain that I was going to see people standing there. Somehow I took a deep breath when and turned over and nothing was there. It was intense and I almost felt like I was being critiqued.

I do want to learn more and it is really comforting to know that I'm not the only one experiencing this. If anyone can find out any other info please post back.

I have had similar experiences, I would say they can be either good or bad. I would lay in bed my mind wondering a bit to the point I'm almost alseep, I believe my conciousness would suddenly snap back and my body would have a strange numb feeling (sleep paralysis). Now I would have one of a few things happen, id either be left there feeling paralized with a horrible terrifiying feeling sometimes hearing some scary voices or just scary noises, id think I was in my bedroom however after fully waking up I would realise it was a 'darker' version of my room, things might have been similar but it wasn't my room.

More commonly the numb thing would then progress onto a lucid environment, sometimes very lucid sometimes only a little. The fully lucid ones I would try and controll but fail misserbly, things happened at their own will and it was in one of these I met my fox.

They stopped after a few weeks until 5 months later, when I hit a major depressive period, realllly depressed to the point I didn't see the point in ever being awake, and more weirdly every night I went to bed when trying to sleep I WOULD end up in one of these states, and every one was nasty and made me terrified. Eventualy someone you would consider 'spritual' realised how bad I was and attempted to help, he did manage to help and strangely enough at the same time he sensed this fox I had met the few months earlier, he also said it considered itself female which was also strange as the time I met it it did telepathicly say "im a vixen".

But overall I'm not sure if these are good or bad, I have had the both of them but I believe even if they are bad your safe from harms way.

It happens several times to me,
I can move fingers, but that's only when I try my hardest. I do not know if its something 'super-natural' or not, though. My parents, they are ones to meditate and pray a lot. I don't wear/have a cross near me when I sleep. I just deal with it, I guess. Its one of those things.

i have had something like that happen to me where it feels like someone is almost holding you down and you cannot pull it off... I wear a cross too... Nothing seems to be something I don't like when I wear it(when it comes to my abilities)...this entry makes me feel better... My family doesn't believe this stuff... Except for my grandma. Now I know I'm not the only one that happens to.
thank you.

I'm so glad I'm not the only person who has experienced this. I wear a cross... Even though I don't really know if I believe in God. My friend used to think I was crazy wearing a cross because she didn't think it would do anything. But it does I don't get trapped when I wear it. It happened to me last night I couldn't move or anything. My friend told me if I try really hard I will be able to go places. And I thought I did once, but I'm not sure. Anyway last night I tried to go somewhere and this voice was whispering do it you can do it. It was so scary and I couldn't get out of it. Then after forcing my self to wake up I tried to find my cross but I couldn't. So I stayed up most of the night. Its so scary... I hope my friend will be able to be there with me this weekend like your friend was to see what happens.

during sleep your body inhibits currents in your motor neurons, which prevents your muscles from contracting. The reason for this is so that you don't move around too much while you are asleep. You experience the situation you described when your brain is awake, but your body is asleep (usually right as you are falling asleep or waking up), so you are conscious of the fact you can't move. Some people have the opposite problem where their muscles remain active during sleep (sleep walking) and we have all heard stories about that.

Often times you experience an indescribable hallucination because you are so recently out of your REM cycle, which is when dreaming occurs.

I've too experienced this again last night. It does not occur too often but when it does, it's a frightening experience. Although I don't believe in spirits, souls or ghosts, I felt that my spirit or soul was floating out of my body and thought I was going to die. In my mind I was like, "no I can't go, it's not the time for me to die" I was also trying to cry out for help, trying to call out my mom's name to help me out, but I couldn't. I also couldn't move my body, I was paralyzed. I even saw an image, like an alien trying to abduct me. One time I even felt like an old hag was sitting on top of my chest or stomach and I couldn't breath; I felt like I was sinking deeper into the bed. I thought I was the only person who went through this experience but after telling my friend about it, she too confessed her similar experiences. I then googled to find that this condition is simply known as Sleep Paralysis. Basically this is caused by anxiety, sleeping on your back or sleep deprivation. People will experience this at least once or twice in their lifetime, typically during the early years of their lives but, people who have narcalypsy experience it more often. Although it was frightening at first, I'm not going to be afraid of it anymore, now that I know more about it. It can be a little overwelming but the tingling sensation and the out of body experience is quite fascinating and relaxing. Next time, I'm just going to give in and let myself experience it, without fears... I say, enjoy it while you's hypnotic!

i was reading what Dream Warrior said about sleep Paralysis, and it reminded me of my own experience. I was lying in bed one night when I began to feel numb all over. Then suddenly I began to feel like I was vibrating and I could float away, like energy was flowing through my body. I was totally freaked out at first but after reading this site I begane to realise what I may have experienced. Although when it happened I did not experience astral projection, I sorta just senced things around me and saw flashes of immages and places in my mind that I didn't quite recognise. I don't know if my experience is the same thing as sleep paralysis or not, or whether it could have been astral projection. I've just started experiencing vissions, strange dreams that come true and the feeling of energy flowing through my body, so its all new and confusing to me

I failed to mention, the ghosts or demons I saw was a common hallucination from being half asleep and half awake in the sleep paralysis stage. Theres nothing scary about Dimension Death and the Astral Planes... And if you get scared you will only wake up. And don't worry... You always wake up... Its a super-safe voyage!
DreamWarrior (1 stories) (6 posts)

This is called Sleep Paralysis John. Nothing to be afraid of. Very common. And the energy you are feeling is similar to vibrating no? Well it's an awesome thing and gift you must embrace it with NO FEAR and relaxation. If you do, you will discover astral projection, and the possibilities are endless. Read and learn all about it. The energy you are feeling is the beginning, after that your body goes to sleep and your mind stays awake, you then can leave your body and travel the galaxy and do whatever you want in the Astral Planes (Dimension Death, Out of Body Experience). I use to have the same problem as you, I would be sleeping next to my girlfriend and would be trying to get her to wake me up, it would scare the shiat out of me also. But, I even saw what I thought were ghosts or demons cause I could see a little out of my eye when it happened. I could also move a toe or finger only. Trying to tap on my girl to wake me up. I don't think the Rosary is what's causing it to stop... I think your negative feelings towards it and your fear is what is stopping it. Cause you can't have fear or negativity if you wanna astral project and explore life in the real world... So to speak.

hi guys
i don't think that its scary a thing . I think this a mental illness which is called schizophernia... I don't know you guys have herd about that or not but I m pretty sure that its a kind of schizophirnia or a mental illness ... You should consult with psychatric and I hope you will get better...

i certainly do not want to frighten you but I have an idea what you are talking about. I've had the same experiences and they are horrifying. I know it sounds crazy but I honestly think they are demons. I know the first time I had this experience I felt if I did not wake up I just sensed like I was dying and worse I sensed that I would lose my soul. And this happened before I believed in Jesus so I had no idea about souls or demons or spiritual things. That was just what I sensed. Well thank God I woke up but as I did I could see three beings that looked like aliens dematerialize and ever since then I have only twice slept with the lights on and I never sleep on my back unless I involuntarily toss and turn over in my sleep. But I still have these attacks more times than I can count. What I usually "see" which is weird becasue it's like I can "see" behind me or over me are like black shapes of beings, usually one. Also sometimes I will be having just a regular dream and then like suddenly the people in my dreams turn to demons, or something starts moving in my dreams. The way I've woken up is trying to think or mouth the words "Jesus" but sometimes it seems as if it just keeps going, and then in my spirit I admit to God that I can; t help but be lustful and I don't know what to do, and try pleading with Jesus to forgive me thankfully I've woken up. But I don't know when G-d's patience runs out... Now I know people hate to hear about Jesus. But I truly believe that these sleep paralysis attacks do come from demons. I suppose trying to take your soul. Well I want to help and I will be comletely personal and honest here. When I masterbate before going to sleep these attacks are much more likely to happen than if I do not. For the last month for 5 days in the week I tried not masturbating at all and rather just read my bible and I have not had a single attack. But it's not easy I mean I can't help but love women, they're just beautiful and I can't help but desire sex. So believe me I'm the furthest thing from holier than thou. I hope this helps, I wish I knew how to be rid of this I mean you constantly have to worry about what's going to happen when you go to sleep.

I had several years of this happening to me. I would panic and fight it each time. It felt like I was paralysed and sometimes I felt like I was lifting up out of my body... Finally one night when it began I decided to relax and just see where it took me. My relaxing allowed me to wake up almost instantly. All that fighting for nothing. Try relaxing and going with the flow.

This is probably going to sound nuts, but the energy your feeling don't be afraid of it, please don't instead of worrying try to relax. I know that sounds really stupid to ask, but just try it, let the energy flow through you, do not fight it, calm with it, be at ease with it, do not strain against it, and start to do breathing exercises. Tell me how this helps... So I can see, thanks.
