Real Psychic Experiences

Sleep Paralysis, Medium Experience, Alien Abduction? What?


This story takes place about 5 years ago when I was around the age of 15. I'd say this was my first extreme encounter with anything supernatural if I don't count when I was a very little girl. It had been some time. I have a LOT to post. But anyway, I was in about my second year of high school when I woke up in what I just found out a few minutes ago is very similar to "sleep paralysis" I went to sleep like any other night, but for some reason I had slept in the living room on a fold out bed instead of in my own room.

When I woke up that night I found myself to be laying on my side, as usual, facing the wall in my living room. I tried to move, but could not & I saw my cat cleaning itself on my bed CLEARLY just sitting there. The odd part about this is the cat was BELOW me, on my bed. Did I mention below me? Right.

So, I am levitating & I try to move, & fail miserably just a slight wiggling of my body. Then I feel a sensation & am turned over by some outside force. I am turned onto my back and I cannot speak I look around because my eyes can move & they are darting incessantly. I didn't see anything. I decided the approach I was taking, which at this time was "PANIC!" Was not working at all, so I took another approach "Relax..." Which worked quite well actually.

I breathe in deeply & breathe out which was about the only thing I could do besides see & as I did so I felt my body slowly lowering onto the bed, gently, & then placed there. I automatically sat up & began screaming & looking around, feeling around for some sort of explanation. I found none. I called my friend Luis right away who helped to calm me down, at 2 in the morning I might add it took a while & after asking me if I was dreaming with me explaining if I was I am because I didn't wake up a second time he believed me and calmed me down enough to where I somehow got the nerve to go back to sleep.

Much to my dismay and honest curiosity I woke up again around 3:30 or 4:00 in the morning, facing AWAY from the wall this time. I believe it was the whispering. Oh? Yes that is the part I haven't mentioned. I woke up looking towards my front door of my home. In the living room, floating in mid air near that door, there were two very very large faces, I'd say about a foot and a half to two feet high each, floating in the doorway glancing at me then one another and whispering what seemed incoherently. Now, I don't know if you all ever watch Charmed, but when I saw the episode where Leo sees the avatars I had to say that the resemblance from the faces I saw to the floating faces in that show are uncanny. Very similar.

I don't know if I am a medium, but if you see my other stories you can let me know. I'm going to be posting for a very, very long time. I do believe I am an Empath. Some insight would be appreciated. I went through this a lot in my head, I have come to the conclusions of curious spirits, aliens, government conspiracy, higher power/angelic influences, as the faces did not hurt me nor did they seem to want to, but they did seem to look at me like a test subject/lab rat.

I did just end up going to sleep while facing them after I noticed when I closed my eyes & opened them they were still there whispering I just decided sleeping it off was more attractive than asking them who they are because I wasn't sure how that question would be taken and they did seem much larger than me...Eh.

Please respond I'd appreciate any comments or anyone who can relate as I haven't found a similar story yet.

I don't think I was asleep at all no I'm positive and if I was asleep I never woke up. I am elated to hear others went through the same as me. I'm relieved by the story from Muffin as well as All Up In The Air. The meteor dream intrigues me as I heard a lot of similar stories online of similar dreams. Also, I never even considered my guides and that is a very nice possibility as well. Thank you all for the information and sorry I never wrote back at the time I've been busy as I am pregnant now about 17 weeks.

this happens to me all the time with a few differences. I don't hear voices or see anything that isn't there (like the heads you saw). Everything around me is just as real as it is right now. The very first time it happened to me I was 25 years old and the mother of 2 small kids. I thought I was being abducted by aliens, too. I think most people think that the first time. My body was vibrating and there was this weird buzzing noise in my head that got really high and then faded as I began to float. It happened again a couple of days later. Then, it stopped for maybe a week before happening again. It was strange. I could go a week with nothing happening and then one week it might happen 4 or 5 nights. I did some research online and chalked it up to lack of sleep because I had gone back to school, was working, had children, etc. Now, I'm not so sure. This has been going on for 3 years now, and I'm no longer in school. In fact, I'm unemployed at the moment! Since it first began, it would go away sometimes for 3 months and then start happening again. There is a guy named robert monroe who talks about his experiences in a video on you tube. You should really check it out. I don't know if I believe anymore that it's lack of sleep in my case. I don't see anything that's not real as I said. Plus, why did it start happening all of a sudden - BOOM! Why at that time in my life? It scared the crap out of me, I do know that. It still scares me if it hasn't happened in a couple of months and comes out of the blue. If it's happened for a couple of nights though I can relax a little more. I've had a couple of really cool experiences when I was able to relax, but that's hard for me to do. When it first started happenening to me at 25 years old, I would lay on my stomach to sleep and have my husband lay over top of me to "hold me down." just imagine what that conversation was like! Haha. Yeah, I had to tell him that I was floating away at night. He doesn't understand it - it's very hard to explain to someone who hasn't experienced it - it sounds nuts. He believed me though and when he would lay on top of me, I wouldn't "float away" as I call it. It just happened to me last night after not happening for over a month so I found your story while browsing around - reading about it. I like to read other people's stories - reassures me I'm not crazy! Blah - I'm done. Lol.

The faces may have been your guides, but anyway it also happened to my mom twice.
She called out loud for Mary in her head,
Screaming doesn't seem to work if you are in that state. By the way in the state between awake and sleep people are more
Sensible for these things, it happened ones to me I dreamed what happened that day. 😕 Muffin why didn't you just post your story and something else I think that you dream will turn real in the future. 😲

By the way - Itabu and Muffin. I find both your experiences very interesting to read. I wanted to write that at the bottom of my post but it somehow got missed out when I sent it.

Best wishes to you both!

Hey Itabu, something similar happened to me. It was on a Sunday morning at about 3:30...I just woke up and I couldn't even open my eyes like you could. I was under some kind of sleep paralysis too, I believe. I wasn't floating, but I did hear the whispering too. At first I thought it was my mother but she was fast asleep. And then I assumed I was dreaming, but I quickly ruled out that option... It was waaaaaay to real. I felt a dark presence. I wasn't scared for some reason but I did feel the need to get out of that vulnerable state. So I got this strange feeling in my hand, but I was able to move it. So despite the feeling, I went with what I had. I relaxed, but it didn't work quite as fast as you so I tried to touch my face with my hand. That gave my body its feeling back and when I opened my eyes my room felt wrong. Nothing was out of place. Not a speck of dust was moved. But the spirit of my room... Way off. I called my friend and he calmed me down and finally convinced me to lie back down even if I don't go back to sleep. I did anyway though for I was REALLY tired. That was the end of that, but it was enough. I also had an experience where I predicted the death of my brother's cousin... (Who by the way isn't technically my cousin 😳...). I had no idea who he was or that he existed to be honest. MY cousin called that day saying her friend was in the hospital but not dead. So when I fell asleep I don't even remember having a dream that night. But my father says he came into my room to check on me and the phone rang. It was my brother. He was calling to say that you know who was dead. My father said that suddenly I wake out of a dream and say in a whisper "he died on the motorcycle". My dad says "huh? What? Who died... What are you talking about?" I say louder "he was killed on his motorcycle! He was hit! On the motorcy-" and I fell back asleep as if I was a robot out of battery life. He said that my brother heard me and started crying out "why didn't you tell me?! You knew and you didn't even call!" (He was really close to him as I found out the next day) and my dad was trying to explain that he knew nothing about anyone dying. So after my dad clears that up they hang up and he is off to bed to wait for what tomorrow holds for him. Now let me mind you, I remember none of this even the next day.

So next day comes and I am in the kitchen fixing breakfast when my mom gets a call from dad asking if I'm up. Obviously she already heard, but I was still oblivious at this point. She hands the phone to me and she is trying (unsuccessfully) to inconspicuously ease drop. My dad asks me how I knew that guy died. I say "what guy? Oh, mom told me." I told him how my cousin called my mom and my mom told me. That's when mom shouts out "you have that physic ability girl. You have it" and I should have known what that meant but I was too confused and hungry) to think straight. My dad says "no, no, no, not that guy. He didn't die. Your brother's cousin. How did you know he died on a motorcycle? No one we talked to even knew that but it was confirmed just now. He was hit on his motorcycle." I was flabbergasted. I didn't even know anyone died like that and here my dad is telling me the story of how I said this and said that and I don't even remember any of it. He and my mom start laughing and saying wow at how I did this and I don't even remember. From then on I hear all these other stories of me doing that before and it keeps happening with all these different situations. Every time... I notice that it is a day when I don't remember having a dream. And 99.9% of the time I remember my dreams or at least having one. It's all just so strange.

And I know you are probably tired of reading this but one more thing I have to share is I keep having the same dream every year on the same day of the same month of a fire burning meteor crashing in my backyard. The weird part is I'm never sleep when it happens. But I just call it a dream. I look outside and see nothing but in my room I hear everything. The large trees as they crash to the ground in flames, the meteor flying from space to earth and hitting the granite rock of our backyard, and the light of the flames as they invade the darkness of my room. But I look outside every time, and see nothing. Is this a sign? I've had this dream every year since we moved here when I was eight.

I feel quite certain you experienced sleep-paralysis. Also a hypnopompic hallucination. Hypnopompic is the state in which a person wakes from sleep. HPH can seem convincingly real and be very awesome. I've come to discount any recounting of a 'waking' experience of the weird and wonderful as paranormal.
(That is too say, sleep itself not being regarded as a paranormal experience - in which case we experience paranormal occurences most nights of the week).

Hypnogogic hallucinations often recounted, often are too fantastic for authentic paranormal experiences, which are sublime and nuanced.

I've experienced sleep-paralysis and related dream elements quite a lot of times. Occurences of SP while sleeping on one's side is well-documented (perhaps even exclusively the posture that it occurs... Google that?). And accompanying experiences of being manhandled, sat-on, verbally abused - all well-documented stuff. I think this something very deep in our hard-wiring...mammalian. Hallucinatory.

I've only experienced hypnopompic hallucination once as an adult. It is utterly convincing. Possible connected with extreme fatigue (like working 12-16 hours manual labour day after day).

Waking to experience someone/thing in your bedroom, or sitting at the foot of the bed: hypnopompic unless physically a real person. The waking aspect seriously compromises the credibility IMO.

Sorry to rain on anyone's parade but true paranormal events will transcend rational explanation not compete with recognised neurological experience. Best wishes.
