Sleep Paralysis?


Ever since my episode with this entity last Tuesday, I've been very cautious when sleeping in my own room. The first few nights, I slept at a girlfriend's house. She went on vacation for the weekend so I was forced to stay home.

I hung a cross over my bed and kept my bedroom door wide open so that the light from the hallway would shine through. I woke up in the middle of the night and saw a faint, smaller version of the dark black shadow in the corner of my room. I moved around a bit and went back to sleep. I felt strongly at ease when I awoke in the morning; like the cross was working and that I would have no more problems... However the thought of this being in my room still completely freaked me out.

So then I tried sleeping with the lights all on Sunday night and had no problems at all... I must admit though, it's difficult to get a good night's rest with lights in my face. Monday night, I decided to put my three year old son in bed with me and turned the lights off, kept my door open again so that the light of the hall would shine through. Again, no problems at all. I figured this was the best way to assure that they would no longer bother me while I slept.

Last night, exactly one week from the past episode, my son was hardly tired and kept running from my bedroom, across the hall to my mother's. Our bedroom doors are diagonal from each other, and I can clearly see her when I am lying on my bed. I was ready for bed and my son obviously was not. My lights were all off and the fan, at the foot of my bed, was on low speed (it tends to act crazy when I put it on medium or high speed). The lights from my mother's room and the hallway shone into my dark bedroom, giving me a sense of security besides the light from my laptop.

My son then started running around so my mother closed her bedroom door. My room became noticeably darker and my laptop shut off on it's own. All of a sudden, within seconds, my fan started shaking and the speed started to fluctuate without my touch. I felt a dark cloud over me and I started to convulse. I was completely conscious, yet I could not scream, I could not move; I could not even close my eyes. I felt my heart racing and wanted so bad to scream, and then, what seemed like decades later, I was finally able to stop shaking and jump off my bed. I quickly turned my light on and sat on the edge of my bed until I caught my breath.

Needless to say, I didn't go back to sleep in my bedroom last night.

This all seems to me what could be defined as sleep paralysis, however I had never even gotten the chance to shut my eyes, let alone sleep for a minute.

I *was* a long time sufferer of sleep paralysis. Determination lead me to find a solution.

Sounds like too many negative energies have been invited into your house. Sleep paralysis can be a result of this.

Refer to the posts in my blog titled "Sleep Paralysis," "Energies," and "Removing Negative Energies." Hope these help!

Get on your knees each night and ask for Gods protection and turn this over to Gods protection. Also, read a scripture each night. When your heart is turned to God, you will be able to send away evil and be protected from it. Pray for a shield of protection around the property and envision a shield around where nothing evil can penetrate. Ask God and your guides if there is something more you can do.

I just had that last night and since I haven't been on recently and then this happened this was the first place I came to. What happened to me was I was waking up and when I blinked to make sure I was awake, my entire body just shut down and there was a flash of light and then a face then I could move again. This hasn't happened to me since 3 years ago. I think somethings haunting me.

Its a horrible experience

I use to have these alot

I made my mother sleep with me

I use to tell her to keep the lights turned on when I was going to sleep

And I never walked the hallways with the lights turned off unless I knew that my cousin was home and was in his room across the hall.

How I got over this fear?
Well after a week I forgot about it
(I know it doesn't really help)

Then I told myself, " They can't harm me and while I was sleeping in fear unable to move in my bed I closed my eyes and thought of positive thoughts, I read on this site that imagining a white light can help... Something like that, its basically like creating a shield.

You also have to get over your fear by telling someone else

Tell your mother
She would be able to help
And if she doesn't believe you
Just try...
The warmth, care and love of a mother always helps

I used to have the same problem. First off, you can't worry about your mind wandering off. This causes your mind to wander off.

Second. Even if you just imagine a shield of light around yourself, you will unconsciously manipulate at least a little energy. The key to almost all energy manipulation is in your subconscious.

What I did when first starting energy manipulation was first I imagined the energy being manipulated, then I began to meditate on the imagined energy. I just sat stilled and thought about it.

Finally Worrying is the antithesis of the meditative state. It produces negative results in my opinion. Just relax.

It's a slow process, but it worked for me. Now I can do it almost at will.

Hope I've been some help ^_^

Rain, I'm having a horrible time trying to manipulate energy, or even imagining a white shield around me. I have trouble concentrating and my mind always wanders off... Any tips?

It's definately a Shadow. Light scares them away as do holy objects. Dreamcatchers work well too. If they attack you they can induce a state of paralysis. I'm not going to get into the whole 'sleep paralysis' argument right now. I don't care what it's called or what it is, but these Shadows can cause it if they're powerful enough.

They can also cause horrible nightmares.

You can force them out of your house if you tell them to FORCEFULLY. Put force in your voice. It's also good to use your religion. 'In the name of jesus', etc...

If you can manipulate energy, sending light energy towards them can hurt them. Using a shield of light energy works too. Especially before bed.

But you must mean it.

This sounds like a relativly powerful one. I think you might have made it angry with the lights on and the cross.

If my method doesn't work, I suggest you get the help of a someone who's good at manipulating energy to help you, because that means it's more powerful than I thought.

Hope I've been some help.

Ive had sleep paralysis most of my life and I have found the easiest way to deal with it is to completely relax, And just wait, your body and mind soon reconnect and you should be fine. Also remember you can be hurt by any entitys around you while your in sleep paralysis. Just try to relax
Love and light

Oh, and the reason prayer helps, is it raises your vibrational frequency...

One can do that with prayer, or one can simply will themselves to do it.

When one is in this unique "mind awake - body asleep" state, you start out near the frequency of being in hell, so you have to rise out of that...

[at] Iunderstand,

I hope you can explain to me what it is that offends you about the name for that condition.

I think it's pretty accurate from the point of view of mainstream medicine, which can be pretty one-sided. It's a state between sleep and awakening, where the mind is already awake, but the brain had not left "sleep" mode, so the body is still "locked" to prevent physical injury during sleep. Only eyes are under person's full control.

Irregular sleep-wake cycles can usually bring about sleep paralysis, and there are people that induce it on purpose.

The reason for fear many experience is that the person's awareness is split between the astral and the physical. One can see and hear things that reside in the astral world, but one's body awareness is attached to the physical body, so one tries to "run" with the body which is still not awake, and thus ends up scared out of his wits.

If the person can manage to block out fear and stay calm, one can try to escape the physical body's magnetic hold and walk away.

That is called astral projection, and is quite an eye-opening experience.

While out of body, you can see the things you would not see otherwise, and even meet people who have passed on. With some effort you can will yourself to travel to places on the earth and in various astral planes. It's definitely worth trying to do.

Sleep paralysis can feel quite nasty, and so is the moment when you first leave your body's magnetic hold, but it's only a matter of raising your vibrational frequency, and you'll feel fine. Have fun 😁

That's great! I'm glad you were able to have some bit of peace. I'm glad you have a friend to talk to also. When two or more are gathered together in pray amazing things can happen.

I've awoke once being totally paralyzed, but can't recall anything before waking.
I prayed with my family and it hasn't happened again. That was 8 years ago.

I found loads of video's on youtube about it, one that might interest you is "Sleep Paralysis With David Hufford" (search youtube)

(not sure if the link will work on here)

He talks about the shadow man and an old women in the room while paralyzed.

I don't know enough about astral projection, but I have considered that is what happened to me.

Thank you for your kind words and confidence. I stayed up late last night, consulting with a new friend who has experienced the same. He, too, is a follower of Christ and he assured me that I need to pray and pray hard... He gave me tips on how to pray and what to ask God for. I sincerely, kindly, but not over-confidently asked God to be with me while I sleep, and to protect me with the blood of His son, Jesus. I also repeated a verse from the bible (Revelation 12:11) a few times and wrote it down so that I would not forget it. I slept with the peice of paper and I can honestly say, from the second I started praying, the more at ease I felt. It was amazing how that huge weight had been lifted. I was not able to sleep with the lights off, however, I did sleep peacefully.

I totally agree with uou Iunderstand.

I have frequent sleep paralysis. It is not a medical condition. It is more like a spiritual experience.

Scientists cannot understand something that is spiritual. 😐

Why is it that doctors and scientists keep coming up with all these new disorders and syndromes. Sleep paralysis?!?! I'm offended and embarrassed that our scientific leadership is so ignorant. There is a disorder for everything. I hate it when people call it sleep paralysis. The name doesn't even make sence for what it is describing.

Read my story "demons and visions". I have felt with this so called, "sleep paralysis" for years. I have also seen black figures aswell.

By the way, the "Christian" cross finds its origin in ancient Chaldean paganism. It is the symbol for Tammuz, the god of the sun. Sticks and stones have no power over spirits.

I'm a follower of the Word of God. Christ is my saviour. I always pray to Him when I am afronted with fear and doubts. When I was a kid I slept with a Bible under my pillow.

Heya, I've experienced this and you shouldn't worry. It's actually you, haha. I reacted the same way xD

Have you heard of astral projection?

This is what AstralBooBaby (awesome guy on Youtube who astral projects a lot) said to me:
"You were not dreaming my friend but this was not an evil spirit. It was your unconscious astral body floating in between your conscious and unconscious states."

It's very overwhelming waking up to a black figure hovering over you at night, but you must not be afraid:)

Much love,
