Sleep Paralysis Visions


I've had a lot of paranormal experiences in my life of ghosts, poltergeists, magic, etc. But I have never experienced sleep paralysis, only heard about it. That was until December 26th, 2005 (the day of the tsunami in Southeast Asia). I was living with my mom and little brother in Vancouver and was 22 at the time. I was having a dream that I approached a small white stone house in the jungle, it was a beautiful place, and in the doorway was a handsome young man wearing white Islamic robes, with his arms outstretched to me. I hugged him and woke up. I saw a figure of a man sitting against the wall near my feet (my head was partially covered by my blanket so I couldn't see clearly who it was), and thought it was the guy from my dream. I smiled and tried to say "asalamu alaikum" but nothing would come out. So I tried the simpler "salaam" but again nothing came out... And then I realized, what the hell Soma? That was a dream! So this person must be my little brother, and I haven't moved yet so he must think I'm still sleeping... So I'm going to scare him and suddenly jump up hahaha... but... I couldn't move!

Then I realized something else, the mattress I sleep on is against the door, so that means that when I'm sleeping, nobody can come into my room. So how can my brother get in... It must be a ghost! At this time it had been over a year since I'd seen a ghost. But thoughts of who the man on my bed was were soon replaced by worries of why I couldn't move. The thought of sleep paralysis didn't even cross my mind, I just panicked and thought that I must have something seriously wrong with me, so I tried to bang on the wall and tell my mom to call an ambulance, but I still couldn't move. The harder I tried to move my arm, there was a vibrating sound that kept getting louder and louder, until finally there was a 'pop' like after you go swimming and you have water in your ear, when it clears and you can hear again. I jumped up and the first thing I said was "Jesus Mary and Holy Saint Joseph" like an Irish person, even though I'm not Catholic, but I'm part Irish so I say this experience scared the bloody Irish out of me!

My second experience with sleep paralysis 6 months later is probably the scariest thing that's ever happened to me. Again it was in the morning, I woke up because my mom was laughing loud on the phone, so I asked her to keep it down because I was tired, and I went back to sleep. I woke up again and I could see a woman kneeling beside me. Her head was down so I couldn't see her face; she was wearing modern western clothing and a black hat, with long dark hair. Until this point, I have never believed in demons. But something was telling me this thing sitting next to me was a demon. I looked at the wall, and back, because I thought I must be hallucinating, I could see it SO clearly, I even stared at the hat thinking, I can see the stitching and the button in the hat in such detail, as if this was a real person. I kept looking at the wall and back and saying prayers in my head, along with "I'm not afraid of you" even though I was lol. When I said the prayer... The thing GROWLED at me! A low, evil growl. So I said a different prayer and I looked back, it was gone and I could move again. This time I jumped up and just said "fecking ell!" haha.

The third sleep paralysis episode was 2 months later, I'll write about that in a story entitled "otherworldly creatures..."

I totally relate to your comment! Your experience #1 feelings reminds me a lot of mine in the beginning (5 y/o). I did the whole screaming out thing. I was so sure you were going to say he did NOT hear you. I think that it is so interesting that he did hear! I wish you spoke more about what he saw and how he responded because whoever was around me at the time (several experiences) always said they saw/heard nothing.

My initial experiences were a couple of decades ago. I still have the sleep paralysis and lucid dreams, along with a host of other weird sleep things. It definitely does help to know we are not alone! I can attest that the fear associated with those experiences lessens over time as you learn how to address/control things...

I'm glad I read your story.
I'm 14 and I had this happen to me 3 times;
I never knew what it was called until now ^.^
At least I know it happens to other people to.

My first experense was at my grandma's house. I was sleeping on the couch and my brother was sleeping on the floor; at th time he was up playing with his cars.
I woke up, turned on my side away from the couch.
I was uncomfortable in that postion so I turned on my back facing the ceiling. I was hardly alseep and my whole body went completly limp. I couldn't move or talk. My legs and hands were tingly and it felt like someone was sitting on my chest. It also felt like I was choking and couldn't breath. I was totally scared but what was even worse was I was hearing whisper voices in my ears. Oh an I could hear anything except the voices. It was like I was trapped on my body and acutly aware of myself; kind of like I was floating upward a little. I tried to call for my brother but I couldn't get his name out. It was "Ga-" Gage.
Then I felt like I had to pray. I'm not really religouse but I do believe in my own way. So I prayed eventually I snapped out of it.
I think it lasted about 15secs. I asked my brother after if he heard me trying to call his name; he said "yeah! I was going to call 911!"

It was the scarest thing ever and add to the fact
I didn't know what it was called.
The 2nd experense was at my house.
I dozed of for only a sec and it happened but
I snapped out of it as soon as it happened.
But I was aware of the voices.
3rd experense was at my other grandma's house.
It was sorta like the 2nd enperense. I knew
What was happening so w/e it was didn't have a effect on me. The 2nd and 3rd time I prayed to angels.
Again not really religouse.
I read about angels one day and got hooked:P

Rachel sometimes your spirit guide/guardian angel will rest on your chest. This often feels like you can't move, also from a scientific standpoint your mind was in the theata stage (this happens in cycles everynight so don't worry) it is what allows your body to recooperate. Basically when you sleep your body slows down your breathing and your mind will go into 4 different states depending on how long you are asleep. Once in the 4th stage your body's muscles will go unresponsive except for your mind (this is when your mind is most active). Just know that you always have at least 3 people protecting you at all times. The heavenly Father, mother, and your guide.

There was a lightening storm tonight, and I had this happen - but it was many many people talking, so many conversations, I was able to remember some of what was said and made notes. My mom was there too but something very evil kept comming up and I would have to thrash around hard to pull out of it (althought my body was actually not moving) I would see myself trying to reach for my husband to help wake me up. But I wasn't really moving. This just happened, but had this occur when I was young (10-16) all the time, and lately it is comming back. I want to connect and relax but something evil comes in and have to fight hard to get out of it. I pray a lot and say I am not afraid of you and you can not hurt me...
