Sleep Paralysis


I am having the weirdest experiences with this. I just woke up and I was freaking out. I went online and yes, now here.

Simply, I lay down and in the period that the mind is awake and my body is asleep. I feel as if someone is trying to harm me or take me. Lately, I hear breathing in between a dog and an angry person. It crawls over me and around me. Sometimes it pulls me but I am a fighter so never let down. Today, I woke up at 6 am when my boyfriend went to work. I then went to asleep again and there it was.

It was heavier this time and over my shoulder growling louder and breathing. I said out loud (so I think) that I am not afraid. It started breathing lightly and on my shoulder. I don't see anything but feel pressure. I thought in my mind, "A witch? A ghost? Is my apt in NY haunted?"

I fight but wake up. I jump up and immediately on the internet doing research because I am about to commit myself:)

In other incidents, I have had voices asking me to come back. I have had pulling into darkness. I have had it all. What is happening?

I feel like a normal girl. I have always been acute of people and their energy. I don't know what's happening but I want it to leave.

Am I crazy? Advice?

Look up the lyrics for this amazing Christian song. It is for you. "In Christ alone". The words came to me as I was thinking about what to say to you. I was about to forget it but suddenly these words came as clear as cloudless sky.

Killing your nerves is not a good way to deal with pain. Stay away from meds.

I had a similar sleep paralysis experience, although I wasn't attacked. I was lying in bed in a half-dream and I felt there was someone lying by my side. I wanted to move and tell them to go away but of course I couldn't cause I was paralyzed. I heard a man's voice calling my name. Another time, I heard a man snoring. Whatever it was, it didn't want to attack me but it still scared me out of my wits. Unfortunately, I don't have sleep paralysis anymore. I'd like to practice, try to stay calm and maybe communicate with that thing. I'm probably not the best judge here, but I guess if I were in your shoes, I'd try not to resist and just see what happens. I know it's easy to say that, seeing that I was freaked out by my experiences and they weren't even scary, but there it is.

Im a medium. I have had a similar experience. Went to sleep one night, woke up half an hour later with what felt like someone lying on top of me. I woke up kicking my left leg and screaming "get off me". Did a lot of reading after that.
I agree with everyone having God in your heart definitely helps. But you have to pray for protection. We also do a lot of travelling when we are sleeping. Some books say the pressure I felt on top of me is me returning to my body after astral travelling, like a bumpy landing. Since that day I pray that God helps me return to my body safe and sound. It has never happened since. Hope that helps. ❤

that's not good. I would learn to build shields. Its not just negative entities calling to you. Its possibly to do with a past life or your karma.
Because they specifically asked you to "come back"
Learn to build shields and than ignore it when your strong enough. Learn to push it away with your strength of emotion. Show you will not be shaken or undeterred. Do not connect with it or answer back. When your strong enough to do this it should leave you alone.

I have had the same experience, prayers and other religious rituals may not help... Just numb what you (I) have seen and felt.

I lived with a person that kept on bringing my life and space bad energy and thoughts, and they have compounded to one energy source that tried to leach on to me. The very second I left the place where I used to live, It went away, but it was still stuck on me like a bad smell, (like getting sprayed by a skunk)

I was away from the home, but I had trails of it (whatever it is).

Something or someone near you (physically or emotionally) is going through some major issues, big time. The negative force is trying to get to you and spread out to others. Don't let your emotions get the best of you, even your fear, because fear because useless when you become calm and center your feelings.

When in the centered state, the force around you will become very attracted to you but would be unable to hang on at all, but when you slip and start to wonder your emotions and thoughts what ever it is may start to put pressure on you again. I am not trying to scare you, I am simply giving you feedback on how it worked for me.

One thing is clear, you need a drastic change. What ever these forces are, they are trying to change our judgment that may lead you to do something you did not intend to do.

"I feel like a normal girl. I have always been acute of people and their energy. I don't know what's happening but I want it to leave."

Another thing that is happening is that you are absorbing other peoples emotions... Or better yet, you feel other forces and emotions but it is not coming directly from you...

I went to a movie, I have seen it once already, but there was a part where I wanted to cry, but it was not me who felt that way, it was the crowd around me because at the same time I had another emotion. That may clarify what I said above.

Stagelite... Your being haunted and set up for something much worse if you let it continue. Its time to learn some prayers to protect yourself. Learn how to pray to St. Michael the ArcAngel for protection. Find someone to burn sage in the house or to bless the house... There are a lot of options you got to go for a few of them.

shakra, knows little and talks much. This isn't just sleep paralysis. Its called a haunting and it sounds like the bad kind. Be strong, but also you need to take this seriously. I have had experiences like this so unlike some brash big mouths, I know what I am talking about. Unfortionatky I was on two vicoden when I wrote the ugly last message. But its points are still there. This is no game. I'm no church boy, but Ill tell you that god is very real and your best help. You should consider that this apartment may have a major problem. I suspect some once used some negative whitchcraft there, this seems to bring these growling evil entities in most cases.

You are absolutely not crazy... Here advices from someone who have the same experienced like you few times but haven't have it lately since I know how to fight it, Thanks to GOD. As you are a strong mind because you are not scare of this experienced when it happand, but if it happand agian, what you can do to make it go away is try prayers and chanting do it in your mind, also think of God, it work for me, sometime chanting and prayers make it go away faster. Do not answer to the voices you hear it's best, the more you answer them keep them coming back, but once you have get to know them like me the will not easily give up trying to make contact with you, I have learned something from this experiences is these voices can be good and bad influence to your life, and it can get scary and also they are trying to make you danger your own life. They will keep trying with you,they're working with your soul and your brainwave to communicate with you. If you can't hear their voices becareful with the thoughts and feeling that come out from no where, sometimes those FEELING AND THOUGHTS are THEM trying to make you follow, those thoughts and feeling that will influence you in bad way and in good way it's you who choose to follow those thoughts or not and which. This is all from my experiences with supernatural, believe it or not it's up to you. You are doing great I hope this advices help you, God bless you.

Ok whatever the hell the guy below me said I can't understand. Sleep Paralysis is Ok though and lots of people have it at some point. Its pretty much what you described, feels like your awake, something attacks you or you feel bad, and usually can't move. This is usually a spiritual attack by a negative spirit or demon. My mom had the same thing for about 6 or 7 years and a demon would mess with her and just do harsh stuff to her. But listen, don't worry, you can't get hurt from these dreams in reality and its easy to get rid of them. Pray every night before bed and ask god to shine his/her holy white light upon you, protect you, and tell god you love god and thank god. I do this every night, but you don't have to. How I got rid of my mom's demon was I prayed for god and I to kick his as and get rid of him. I don't know you but Ill also pray for you and that is all it takes.

Also sleep paralysis can just come from stress, so if that's the case try meditating or solving your problems out (or both). It can also come from sleeping and laying face up and staying that way when you go to sleep.

Anyways good luck to you and I'm sure youll get rid of it

High, your not crazy, do not comit yourself. The drugs they will give you let's you become a much easier target. Try to be brave, never be afraid or give up hope, ever. Pray, and be a good person. I am much like you, I have experience such things. It is either you or your house. Proboly a combo of both. You have an ability that your family and boyfriend will never understand of except. Many people here will give you advice but few are completely in the dark realm. I mostly expereince dark things. I thought I was crazy to but at least I had many witnesses. Even then I'm still alone in my life and battle to keep these things away and stay strong. I sugest a complete life change. To move away, read the bible some and set up a new clean life. Bless your next place you move to and keep up with anything you learn to keep them away. This is very bad. And if you and your boyfriend ever split you might want to find someone who is going to be very understanding or even can help. Someone who won't be totaly freaked out and commit you or turn their back. My girlfriend who use to be skeptic now knows and deathly fears them and even me. It sucks bad. These arent what you might think and I don't want to tell you to much but you need to get away. And pray as you go not to be followed. They can go anywhere, but they seem very strong at your ap. Be ready to change your life it sounds like you have the problem as I do. I'm just now becoming able to deal with it and I'm planing om learning how to battle things of this nature. I'm 28 and have lived most of my days in fear and denial, but you only punish yourself calling oyurself crazy and beliving so. It is not true, stay alert and sharp, no drugs or any depresants at all. You can click on my na, e and get my e-mail if you need to talk. Be brave, but if you feel you need to leave, definitly do so. Always head the warning. Be carefull, sincerely leo.
