This is my first submission and was a little freaked out by this.
Recently, I have been experiencing waking up exactly four hours after I go to sleep. This is not the reason for this but until last night I have experienced seeing black figures while awake in the dark and the heavy feeling that someone is in my room.
Last night I woke up to have that feeling and to see a dark figure in the corner of my room. It was then I felt the heavy feeling that it was staring at me and I was being watched. At first I thought it was just the dark playing tricks with my eyes but the light from outside made the room not as dark. I shut my eyes only to see again in my eyelids the exact same figure moving towards me. At that point, a white light appeared (with my eyes closed mind you) in my left eye. In my right eye the figure was moving close but the closer it got the brighter the light got. It disappeared, however, more black figures began to appear and move towards me.
I was afraid to open my eyes because at that point I got the feeling that multiple people were in my room. But as they moved towards me the white light began to pulse, the closer they got the brighter the light got and the figures seemed to disappear. This went on for about 6 minutes. Also, that has never happened to me before, I know sometimes you see colors while sleeping (or do you?) but this is a first occurrence so I have a feeling that this not some trick of the eye.
I opened my eyes and the shadowy figure wasn't there but the sensation of someone being in my room still loomed. I tried to get out of bed but I couldn't because it felt like I was being trapped under my blanket as if someone was holding the sides. I couldn't move my feet or my head and I began to feel like I was being pulled from my body. I also felt a little shake under me in the bed. It was then I began to cry and sang church songs. I don't know why church songs but that was the first thing that popped into my head. After singing a couple songs my body began to tingle all over and my body felt like air however I was stuck in the same position just singing. It finally ended but it took a while for me to get back to sleep because I was freaked out about this happening.
My grandmother on my mom's side is a prophet and has had these experiences. She even performed an exorcism on herself where she was locked in her room for three days and fought the devil himself in her room. I remember my mom saying she has had experiences of being pressed down on her bed and not being able to move and actually seeing demons marching into and out of my grandmother's room during the time she was doing the exorcism. The main reason I am scared too is because I am pregnant and unsure if it's not affecting me will this affect my unborn baby. Should I be scared or is this normal?
