My Husband Gets Clawed In His Sleep


New poster, long time lurker here.

Some day I will put together my interesting experiences to share. I have many questions, but will get to that another time.

For the last 4 years, my husband wakes in the morning with claw marks on his back, belly, legs and torso area. It occurs maybe once every few months, sometimes more than once in a week. It happened again last night. We do have two large dogs and one cat that all sleep with us most nights, but the claw marks do not fit the little paws of the cat and are too small for the large dog feet. Sometimes it will be a series of claw marks in a row, and sometimes it is just a few. They do not go in all directions, but are not perfectly lined up either. They could still be from the pets somehow I suppose, so just to test we have decided to not allow them to sleep with us anymore to see if it happens still.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Anyone pick up any vibes from me? This has NEVER happened to me. We do not live in an old home and have never (knowingly) called upon anything evil in any way. We are both fascinated by paranormal phenomena, but do not perform any kind of attempts at communication with spirits, etc. We mainly enjoy reading about experiences and watching television shows such as Paranormal State. We did stay a night at a 'Haunted Hotel', the Jerome Grand Hotel here in AZ. This has been occurring long before that stay, however, and we did not have any unusual experiences there at all.

I personally do pray for us and for our friends and family. I am not religious, to me, I am sending positive energy. I sometimes ask questions out loud or in my mind wondering about any spirit guides, etc., but never have been able to pick up on anything. We are both generally very positive people who love our families and friends and always help them in any way. We do both have backgrounds in depression and both our families have alcoholism issues. My husband is an alcoholic as far as we can tell, if those details have any bearing on getting to the bottom of this.

Thank you all for your time.

Thanks Dreads, those are some great ideas. My poor husband is going to take some convincing but hopefully he will be open minded. In the meantime, I think I need to work on protection for the both of us. The last two nights we had family visiting from out of town and they mentioned their bed shook, though not violently, both nights and their door opened and closed a few times on its own, again not slamming but gently. They are catholic and seemed pretty shook up about it after the second night. I find it kind of exciting and eerie but not frightening, although for the sake of family and friends I would like to make sure that only kind entities are here and not anything negative. I also do not wish to accidentally invite anything here by being too nice, if that makes sense.

Is there any chance that you can set up a few cameras around your bedroom to see and make sure that it is nothing physical? After you've made the assumption, if it is something paranormal i've heard of people putting bibles (or other religious icons) around a room, or around the house to ward off spirits and push them away from certain spots/places.

Not sure who, but somebody earlier said to tell your husband to visualize a bright bubble around himself. To get the mose benefit from it, you should both put one around each other, and around the bed that you two sleep on.

If all else fails, every city has well known psychic and psychic centers that can help you out depending on how good/bad the situation is. Although on this website, there are also many people that can also help you out.

Yet another update, last night my husband was scratched again! The scratches span maybe 6 inches end to end, and are 8 parallel thin marks, somewhat overlapping. We no longer have a cat and neither of us have long nails. The scratches are where his thigh meets his butt cheek, on the lateral plane. He jokingly said it must be a demon. Also a friends 4 year old son who can see and communicate with spirits said there was a man in our sunroom the other day. Then he said, he's over there now, pointing somewhere outside. I don't think the 2 things are related, I feel like we have spirits milling around this property and a couple of sensitive friends have said that our hallway feels strange.

I was looking back at this story, and I wanted to update that since moving to a new home (old house but new to us) he has not had another scratch. We moved a few months after the story was written. Interesting!

Well, besides the chance it might him, it could be a demon.
They claw at me sometimes, but never leave physical marks. Usually stiffness, or cramps where they touhed me, but never any thing like scratchs. Another thing is I always wake up when something's wrong in my room. I just jolt awake.
So I really don't know what to tell you, but keep the good energy flowing, it'll help.

No I have not noticed any correlation at all as of yet. He has nubs for fingernails as do I, and the scratches are very fine, like sharp cat claws. I was thinking about this more today, if it happened to be the cat, why? And why not me? And why in the pattern it is appearing? It is all so bizarre.

Have you noticed if these claw marks appear when he has perhaps drunk more than usual or has been more stressed than usual? This might be a key to it. There are cases of people who scratch themselves during their sleep when they are under a lot of stress.

Hi Paws!:)

So I read that your wondering if you can do the white energy protection for him? Yes, you can!

My view on energy, is that if we can create it, then it surely exists, right? It can never be destroyed, but can be "molded," in a way.

Just a thing to remember: You control the effectiveness of the protection. If there are still scratches, it is not because your protection is not working, it is, however, because your husband is letting whatever negativity "in," in a way. Sometimes not even being aware of doing it!

Some of this happens to the best of us.:)
Even I have unintentionally invited in negative entities onto my auric field at some points.:/ yikes!

Best of luck! - Terry

Thank you all for your responses! Even if this injury is nothing paranormal, I have a lot of things to think about. (By the way, no, they do not appear to be human hand sized and the scratches are so fine, they really look like cat scratches - I am an expert on that as I have worked with animals in the veterinary medical field since I was 15 and I am now 28... And I just trimmed the cat's nails a few days ago down to dull nubs because he clawed one of my dog's nose). I believe exactly what is mentioned below regarding energy. I have believed for many years, since I was a kid, that energy is everything: matter, 'vibes', etc. As a non-religious person, prayer is just a way to focus energy. I am a strong believer in karma type things in that we should all have love for all living things and the earth as well. My husband knows the kind of person I am, though he would for sure think I were nuts if I asked him to do those things regarding the positive energy aura. I am not saying that I will not chip away at the stone to educate him about that, but it will take time. He needs to believe in it himself to get anywhere in that way. In the mean time, will it do anything if I try to surround him in white light? I can make it a priority to do this nightly for the two of us. As far as his health, he has many little health problems. He is currently suffering from sleep apnea, ear aches, acid reflux, body acne, low energy and he is a little overweight. He has been told his cholesterol and blood pressure are both high in the past, and that he needs surgery to repair a deviated septum so he can breathe normally (he also snores so bad that I can't remember the last time I slept soundly... In years! I suppose we have a LOT of unbalance in our lives without even getting into social stressors). My biggest issue is getting him to do anything. He is very good at helping to keep the home in order, but I am talking health care wise. He can be incredibly stubborn! I love him so much and it wasn't until I was typing this all out that I realize that I need to lead by example in many ways. This thread has got me really thinking about so much. I am curious now to see what his liver enzymes look like, among other things. We will have to have a current blood panel drawn. He is 32 years old and HATES doctors of any kind. He is very anxious by nature and in combination with his health issues, I just worry about him. I want nothing more than for him to be healthy, calm and happy... Wow I have a lot of work to do. Keep the comments coming, again, I am very open to hearing from anyone that gets any vibes from us and of course, any opinions/advice, etc.

Thank you!

Paws... AnneV has given some good advice... My first reaction is about the size of the claw marks and location. If they are more human like then I would tend to go to ghost or succubus if of the succubus kind the other person in bed is in a state of sleep that you cannot wake from until the act is over but usually knows something bad happened not to say that the person going through it is very aware of what is happening... Just is frozen during the attack. Ghost scratches are harder to define because there are many variables as their are ghosts and hauntings. If they are more animal like and you remove the pets from the bed and they still occur then I would tend to go with a lower form of entity that is usually associated with feeding off of a persons psych. Because of drugs or some other vice... It could have happened in the past and stayed... Again many variables... Prayer is a good start to lessen the frequency of the attacks and works better if both of you pray together.

Hi! My Name is Terry, and I read auric energy I recieve from other people, plants and animals. Well... Actually. I read everything! - Everything has energy.

Anyhow, just now I felt weird on the middle of my back, closer to my spine... I directly relate this to his solar plexus... He is having a problem with his liver lately probably. He may seem un-grounded and tired recently as well. It's as if he has little energy throughout the day?

Well here is what he needs to do.
He needs to protect himself from what he is picking up, okay? Before going to sleep, tell him to imagine a shell of glowing white light to surround him.

People think that I am NUTS when I say to them that imagining a white bubble around themselves will relieve, protect and enhance your energy and auric system.
All that you are doing is raising your vibration, so that the negative, lower vibrating (bad) entities and spirits cannot harm you in any way possible.
This is probably the way he has become vulnerable to the scratches --- a lowered vibrational state of being, from recurring sadness or being pessimistic. Tell him to be happier with life!:)

By imagining the white light, you are therefore puting out a protective energy around yourself, clairvoyantly.

Everyone has Psychic potential! No joke! So tell him to trust himself that this will work.

The less he believes in it, the less it will work!

By the way --- sometimes he is a bit skeptic. He sometimes goes online to "search up answers" for the scratches/paranormal energy?

Tell him to stop being a silly man!:) Tell him all will be alright, as long as he protects his energy!

The spirits that scratch him do not control him, he controls IT!

Please let me know if it works! - t3rrt3rr [at]

You and your husband have made logical steps to deduce whether or not his scratches are originating from a pet. That's a lot of claws in the bed but if you've removed them and he's not able to get at those spots on his own via reach, then that leaves you or something paranormal. I'm sure you've already verified that it's not coming from you either.

You don't have to have an old or haunted house to attract entities. Having some of the following can do that: an open mind, addictions (sexual, drug, alcohol, or love of negative drama), a personality that gives off energy that "feeds" entities. Even though you state that your husband might have a drinking issue, there seems little else that would attract of such a dense nature that it could affect his physical body. From what you say, you're loving and positive people with no glaring open doors to this.

What happened four years ago that might have triggered this? We're there marital issues, a new job, new location or something that got introduced? Did you make a new association or did one that you have change? Not that any other man has designs on you but we can send out an etheric copy of ourselves and inflict physical stuff on people if we're of the obsessive nature. Mentally check your male acquaintances to see if one has a thing for you that's coming through as aggressive male behavior to your husband.

Have you thought of doing protective work?

Just some food for thought.
