I believe in science and the big bang. I am also a roman catholic. I don’t practice in the occult, witchcraft, or the dark arts. I don’t use a Ouija board. I am not a crazy religious nut either. Sleep paralysis has happened to me and I would like to say with 100 % certainty that there are things that science can’t explain. I am saying science is right in saying there is a time in sleep where a human body paralyzes itself so not to act out dreams. Yes, this only makes sense. Can a person wake up before the effects are through? Yes. Why would a human experience of a negative presence in a room that lays on top of people be so common throughout history if there was not some merit to it and the spiritual world? Science tries to say it is the dream experience and my own fantasy but I disagree because why can’t I have Angelina Joe Lee show up or someone with a check for a million dollars? It is a spiritual entity in the room and only those that have experienced this type of visitation can understand me.
The first time it happened to me the entity didn’t walk on my bed but more floated over me, despite it not having a physical being. It was a darkness… a presence. It laid on my upper body and I felt extreme pressure on my neck… it was chocking me. I was very frightened and used all my energy to move but I couldn’t. I prayed in my head to St. Michael and the entity vanished as I continued to pray to God. The single most terrifying event of my life that brings tears in my eyes to talk about out loud since it confirmed the spiritual. I told the spirit to get out and never come back when I could move again. A very important step I have noticed in many of these sleep paralysis stories I read online.
Years later I saw a dark presence that looked like a female (definitely not the same scary negative being as before.) It came over me and I felt the same inability to move. In my head I prayed again and tried to move with all my might. She left very quickly… vanishing. This was not a violent occurrence and since an event like this had happened to me before it was not as scary. I told it to get out of my home and never come back. I had no desire to see it again and only wondered what difference the entity had with the first visitor.
The third time it happened I was in my new home after living there for almost a year with two roommates. I saw a dark female presence over me while in my bed. Being experienced with this, I knew what would happen. I could not move but felt the being get closer and closer… a few inches from my face close. It left after I prayed more and used all my inner strength to fight it off despite my inability to move. It left towards the door… vanishing. The third situation wasn’t violent but was scarier then the second time since the entity had much more of a physical form then the other two visits.
I later read up on sleep paralysis and have not had another situation like it. May it be my own inner strength or something else. I do not foresee it happening again. I didn’t tell the third being to leave like I had before since I was so tired after the event and went back to sleep. The morning after the spirit almost felt enticing and I almost wished she would visit again… maybe a charm element she had to try and make me try and summon her. A succubus element possibly. It didn’t come back to my bedside and I never called out to it either.
My roommate who lived right next door to me continually got depressed and tired. I feel the entity decided it had an easier target to go after our brief altercation and fed on him for a while. He claims to not have had any experiences but I noticed he was even more tired and extremely depressed as the days went by claiming to not get good rest and sleeping til late hours in the afternoon.
I waited now with more fear and no charm for any other spirit to arrive again in my room but luckily none came. I did sense a negative presence in my new house before the third incident that was definitely not that the same as any of the visits. You can feel when negative energy is around you when your awake and that to me is frightening since I have never seen a ghost while fully awake. My roommates and I were all stressed and they were depressed for different reasons (girl troubles, deaths in the family, money issues, school, etc. ) and I felt the negative energy was easy for a being of that sort to be attracted to and try and feed on. I understand it needs energy to sustain itself but I refuse to be a host to any entity of that nature.
This isn’t a vampire sucking your blood and then you wake up with powers and burn in the day light. This is a scary experience where your body is paralyzed and has to “fight” to not have its life energy taken through inner strength. The violence I felt the first time I felt this experience was to rise fear and large amounts of energy out of me while also attacking me… trying to kill me to get my life energy. A visit from a spirit good or bad would be more acceptable if I still had the ability to move… there is a difference between a spirit who is going to feed on your energy while you sleep and a spirit that will say hello in its own unique way while your awake… noises, brief appearance, moving objects on its own, etc. I do have contempt and fear of the first visit experience ever happening again.
This is why I check out these kind of sleep paralysis forums to see any common threads in peoples stories. I believe these entities are more of what people call demons and can also be negative souls without the ability to move on trying to cling on to this life by feeding on others for a little more time.
