Greetings forum. This is my story.
I'm a 30 year old male now, but from a very early age I began having Lucid Dreams almost on a daily basis. As time went by I actually became really good at them. Both having them and manipulating them. I do feel I achieved at some point a really high level of control. Needless to say, there were some really amazing stories involving those dreams (which is not the point of the post).
At some point as I became more skilled, I began experimenting more involving OBE's and some "real" life issues (was asking really concrete questions about the future and was shown some images that will soon find out if they are real) also trying to bring back some of those abilities found in those dreams.
This is where it all began. Specially during the Sleep Paralysis stage I began having really bad headaches at first, then there were also voices warning me and screaming at me. Some others yelling for help (really scary voices by the way, with a robotic feel to it and a bit distorted).
Most of the times after this Sleep Paralysis stage if nothing bad had happened, I would find myself "falling" into a pitch dark void for some minutes before "landing", and then a "dream" would slowly began to present. While all this happened I was always aware I was sleeping and I could even "paint" the landscape. As if light would slowly turn on. But then I began having strange presences other than me there, attacking me. Mostly female that would attack me and try to choke me. At some point I asked who she was and she replied "who are you?" with a deep robotic voice. This turned out to be quite scary as the only "real" body function you are fully capable of controlling while in S.P. Or L.D. Is your breathing. And I knew I was actually choking.
From then on I stopped having either OBE's or Lucid Dreams for years. There were many nights where I couldn't sleep at all either from the headaches, or because I was really scared about the attacks. Imagine you go to this place ALL BY YOURSELF and then you are attacked by an unknown force for unknown reasons! (Tried calling for a Guardian or God but didn't work).
Lately I had the feeling that there were things I still have to do/ask/experience or learn from those experiences and tried to have another Lucid Dream. But the same happened. There are now a lot of presences other than me and they all attack me, as if they don't want me at all to have this experiences, and all I can do is to quickly wake up before they catch me. I find this more interesting because there's a lot of consistency with all the other experiences: same female presence, same kind of voice, same form of attack.
Has anyone experienced anything similar to this?
Thanks for reading.
