All my life I've been very aware of my surroundings, feeling presences, etc. I have always felt as though something is touching me or is around me when I sleep. However recently, I've been having very bad hallucinations and feelings of being watched by something sinister. I have flashes where I've seen a little old man trying to have sex with me.
I have also heard a man's voice roaring at me and my bed sheets trying to strangle me at the same time. At all these times I feel a tremendous pins and needles feeling in my head and I know suddenly that there is something there.
The last time I felt my hair being stroked and then being pulled. However, I start praying and everything seems like it never happened. It scares the hell out of me to the point where I take sleeping pills to sleep instantly or alternatively I stay awake with my lights on watching tv as I'm scared of falling in that point between sleep and consciousness where I experience all these things.
My husband thinks its psychological, but I'm very aware and it only happens when I am on my own.
I am Muslim, and as other Muslims would know, when we get scared we recite sraas of the Quran. Immediately everything I'm experiencing seizes and I feel it's never happened.
What is this? Is it in my mind or am I really experiencing supernatural forces?
