Sleep Demons

 

I have been experiencing sleep paralysis for many years, my first experience was s a child, I saw myself sitting on my sisters bed stroking her hair and I could not move or cry out. As I grew older I experienced a witchy woman crouched over with her face covered in her long hair bouncing on my bed. I was unable to move my body or my mouth and I was terrified. I have felt hands with long nails trying to drag me off my bed and at times can feel my body lift off the bed and slightly to the left in the spirit real, all in paralysis. I became very scared and started attending a Christian meditation and during one session I had an overwhelming feeling of fear and sat up in the group and saw a demon looking thing in the corner of the room staring at me. I was petrified and I'm sure worried my friends. I still experience fear day to day and am quite a feisty girl and do not know what I am sensing. Tonight again sleep paralysis, except this time a furry little animal ran towards me and I had it held in my hands but I was trying to shout to my son to get it off me but could not speak or move. I hate these experiences and if anyone can give me advice I would be grateful. Have found praying can break the paralysis as I now understand I do have control over one thing in this frightening state and that is my mind! But if can help me deal and understand all this stuff please respond as I don't really know why I am tormented. I don't like being scared and because of the strange senses I get during the day as well I find little peace. Please advise

I too have suffered sleep paralysis since childhood (dysfunctional hypnagogic and hypnopompic sleep paralysis [meaning I am totally aware of my surroundings during each episode and encounter them before sleep and upon waking]... More hypnagogic) and had a very similar experience to that of yours with the furry animal. However I don't believe the furry creature I encountered was an animal.

A few months ago (just like ever night before this) I had one of several nightly sleep paralysis episodes... When I awoke, I didn't notice it immediately like I usually do (as the experience terrifies me to no end). When I did realize that I was in sleep paralysis mode, it wasn't as intense, so it wasn't nearly as terrifying. My eyes were fixed on the foot of my bed, and out of nowhere this entity that looks like a ball of hair (sandy brownish red and kind of fuzzy... Like someone with curly hair on an extremely humid day) appeared. After a several seconds of staring at this entity, it materialized an arm (no hands, no fingers, just an arm-like extension of its body that came to a point) and pointed to the window. As I made the attempt to free myself from the state of paralysis (which, as I'm sure you already know, is close to impossible) or at least glance toward the window, I went into a full-blown Grand Mal seizure (no history of any seizure disorders ever). When I came out of it, the fuzzy creature was gone and I was totally drained.

Since the above mentioned episode, I have been trying to figure out what this thing could be. So if you figure out what your creature was, please let me know.

i told her your story and she thinks that you probably have the same thing happening and that she would love to hear how you slept after you protect your self and if you keep seeing those things 😳

You asked about why sleep paralysis always happens to you and what to do about it.

It happens often when we are scared to go to sleep, therefore, the mind stays awake (alert for danger) but the body eventually goes to sleep. It can also be caused by being over-tired. Sometimes it is hard to get to sleep after this, again leading to mind awake, body asleep. Also, sleeping in new surroundings, as when you go visit family and stay at their house.

Whoever mentioned the old lady--Google Old Hag phenomenon. People often perceive a dark shadow right on top of them, seemingly trying to get into their body. There is someone--it is you! It is your consciousness (and energy body) trying to get back into the physical body.

Especially when you are fearful when you go to sleep (too scared to sleep), you will interpret this as a negative entity. It is all caused by fear, although it is possible for other entities to be around. It's just important to be in a balanced state of mind when you come out. You can just "ask"--your guide, Jesus, angels--any entity you trust--to give you energy, serenity, calmness. They will provide if you ask. Then you can see the situation more "rationally"--if that even applies here! 😁

One way that I've heard of to stop sleep paralysis is to focus on moving something little, like your pinky finger. That should bring you out of the paralysis. Otherwise, just calm yourself if you'd like to proceed moving out of body--with total physical consciousness. It can be an awe-inspiring activity.

Check out more about it on the sister site here, astralvoyage.com or spiritualforums.com if you want to know more.

Good luck.

It's important to understand that astral travel is not just a copy of the physical world. It has been created by the thoughts of people--us. As such, there will be things possibly from other times, other periods of history.

For instance, people will often start their OBE in their house, but will notice that a wall is a different color, or instead of one piece of furniture, there is another, older piece in the middle of the livingroom.

Likewise, the reason no two people will experience an identical projection (if that were even possible) is that our own expectations, fears, hopes, perceptions are reflected in what we see in astral. There are dimensions past astral that are not visual (or auditory,etc. Either) --they are simply places where different consciousnesses exist. Despite what we here would see as "empty space"--we can and do interact in these dimensions each night as we travel. Then, we "construct" dreams in order to put these experiences into the framework that our five senses can understand. They are symbolic. In fact, any visual scene is symbolic. WE are symbolic of the energy that is us, so in a real way, this is all just a video game that we all believe in.

OK--enough theory! So why you might see snow outside your Mum's place is because someone (many someones) have seen it that way before. But if you notice, when astral, you don't feel any sensations you would if you were physical. You are not too hot or too cold. You can go under the ocean and not run out of air. You can walk in snow and not be cold. You can travel to the moon or to planets no one has travelled to. It may be only your conception of what is there.

The more important thing is to "get" what this projection was trying to tell you--that you have unfinished business with your mom. You went there because that thought crossed your mind.

So in projections, our thoughts create everything. A thought about a scary monster or animal crosses our mind and there it is. We think about visiting our mom and there we are. You think about someone who passed and there they are.

It is difficult for us to get our thoughts under control though, so we get blasted all over the place by our own darting thoughts. We end projections or lose energy with fear. It's an acquired skill but an important one to practice if we want to explore other dimensions (vibrational areas) more.

Often, our projections will lead us directly to our fears and won't proceed until we overcome that fear. It's all very logical in it's own kind of way.

Hope that helps. These are just my perceptions, though, so trust what you yourself feel about the situation.

Tracey--

Many feel that pulling sensation just before their projections end. It seems to be a signal from the body that the physical body needs you back. It can be because you have physical needs--go to the bathroom,etc. It can be because there are noises at home--children, pets, something that your body felt it needed to respond to.

Your experience was very interesting, though. All these relationships you experienced could be Alternate Lives. Basically, every time we have a major turning point in our lives and we spend significant time thinking "What would have happened if..." we ourselves create another life in which that element is changed.

The theory is that these lives let up live out our "what ifs" and feed back into this life so that we can know what each option would have yielded.

OR they could have been past life relationships. It might have been your soul group, although the way you described it makes me think these are other incarnations of a sort and not spiritual relationships one has with those in our soul group.

But now you have the beginnings of a map of who you are--in many different dimensions. Frustratingly, for me at least--I never get all the details. I can't for sure tie all the pieces together. But I do keep getting additional pieces as time goes on.

Congratulations on your projection! It can take a lot of work to get to that place.

ThankQ everyone for your help, I wanted to say what's been happening lately and any advice would be great. Obviously my experiences so far have been sleep paralysis with entities that have felt nasty. Last night I was asleep and became aware that I was sort of jumping in and out of one body to another, I was a different person experiencing different relationships. Its hard to explain but I was sort of aware of these different experiences that were sort of like visiting other bodies where I was in relationship of a sort of intimate nature and I new this person and the whole relationship but I had to keep making myself return back to the person I am with in this Life. I was sort of calling out my partners name and having to sadly say goodbye to the very real persons whom I seem to be living a different existence with. I can recall as many as four different people I visited last night. To top it of which I have never experienced before... I became aware that I was outside in the snow near where my mother lives. If I focused on my feet I could fly! It was the most wonderful experience and I was not scare, I was able to recognise roads from above and fly around the streets. Even though it was snowing I was not cold and I then made a purposeful decision to try and fly high, I again focused on my feet and flew high into the sky and could look down over the town, it was the most amazing experience I have ever felt and I was fully aware that I was having an OBE. Weirdly though I decided to fly to my mothers house to look through the windows, I do not speak to my mum and our relationship has been fraught for many years. As I tried my body went near the ground and there was a sort of pulling sensation and the trees sort of stretched along with other objects and I could not get there. I then woke up, I have no memory of leaving my body or returning to it. Why is that anyone please? Advice needed? Thanks 😊

um just curious what kind of animal was it if you know because usually its symbolic to what you need assistance with and befriending them just be natural with them, consider them a friend and a guardian when you need one and glowstar15 there are some good spirits who help, and your right about meditation in the dark. Iv'e tried it once recently in fact and it was interesting but I can't say any negative energy or evil sprits came for hour but there was some whispering and some cold chills but I haven't meditated in a while either so I can't be sure that they weren't evil or tormented in some way

dont meditate in the dark from what I have read it attracts evil spirits

well I can hear spirits but not as clear as other people but I meditate if I want to hear them clearly I usually ask them if they need help because sometimes spirits need help when they die not a lot of spirits know that their dead so they lived like a normal person but people don't understand that they think that they are trying to scared them or something and when they need help I help them see they light I helped two already (remember when they don't want help its because they don't want to believe that their dead so I recomend to leave them alone) oh and before you meditate make sure to protect your self first just in case that spirits is evil

If the spirit is evil try to not make any contact with him/her you know that there evil because you can sense there aura (sorry I don't know if you have this ability of sensing people's and spirits aura) but if you do it might help to try to used that gift

Delta, thanks I'm not sure if it was trying to hurt me or not it just ran onto my chest and I grabbed it and held it until I prayed myself out of it. It was a funny little ferral creature? Strange never experienced an animal but I thought it might bite me, I'm not too good with rodenty things, and how do you befriend an animal? 🤔 it won't talk to me surely... Sorrybut I'm new to all this 😆

am 13 and read your story and if you want to deal with what is trying to scared I think you should meditate find your inner peace try to talk to god about this but try to meditate in a peaceful place where there's not a sound and try to comunicated with that thing and (sorry for spelling errors) ask him/her why its trying to scared you or if you don't want to do that (this is what I do when I get really scared and I do it everyday)

My aunt experienced the same thing (the demon looking thing) and what she told me what she did when she saw that (she is a religious person) she started praying or saying the Psalm 91 and she also pray to saint michael the archangel (if you don't know about him you can look him up in this website http://www.traditioninaction.org/religious/b009rpMichael.htm (here there is a short version and a long version) she pray that all the time she saw those things and she says they would go away

Hope it helps 😁

my sister has experienced sleep paralysis many times. She has told me about an old woman in a black dress was hovered over her the exact same way, but her face was right in hers when she awoke. Says she can't move or scream.

based on your occurring moments of seeing demons and what I believe might be your spirit animal, your spirit animal could be trying to lead you somewhere in order to help with your situation (spirit animal is like a guardian angel of sorts only a spirit animal will help guide you rather than just protect you which a spirit animal does also) and it got on you for your protection perhaps. As for protection from demons on the other hand a good way is to imagine a blue star on your brow and white light surrounding you like a shield (and make sure the star is facing up not inverted) and that will protect you or at least it should anyway. But try to talk to your spirit animal if it comes around (unless the animal was trying to harm you then it could be another demon or evil spirit, in that case stick with the blue star and white light it usually helps)

Thanks Lora! 😊 can anyone offer any advice in a Paranormal way eg why this may always happen and ways to deal with what ever it is trying to scare me? 😨

Tracey,

I haven't experienced the sleep paralysis but have heard from others that if you can manage to remember to move your pinky finger (or any small part of the body) you can pull out of it. Often people feel totally overpowered, but it may help to try smaller parts of you.

Hope you can find relief.

I don't blame you for not wanting to live with that kind of stress. I experience sleep paralysis all of the time (also known as hag syndrome or night terrors). I too get the occasional animal or being in the room. I don't think you ever get used to it. For me personally, unless I medicate myself with melatonin (a natural sleep aid), I still experience this to this day.

This is probably way off base, but I have learned to turn this catatonic state into an out of body experience. You may have zero interest in this so I won't go into detail but if you're ever wanting to take this to the next level, you're free to visit my other site at www.astralvoyage.com). You're actually closer than you think to astral projection but the fear is still there.
