My Sleep Paralysis Encounter Psychological or Supernatural?

Posted on March 16, 2011

I’ve only ever encountered this only one time when I was 18 years old. One thing I can’t do is figure out whether this was psychological or supernatural.

The day preceding this encounter I watched 8mm with Nicholas Cage and was obsessed with horror movies at this point in time and I do remember talking about horror films with friends at College that day.

Anyway that night I remember I dreamt I was talking with a man who devil like goatee and slicked back black hair and I asked him “Do you believe in God?” and he replied back “The devil is God” and then I woke up. I remember I was lying on my stomach and I tried to move and I couldn’t. It was like something was sitting on my back and putting unbelievable pressure on it. I couldn’t breathe and I certainly couldn’t speak. I tried calling out to my parents but nothing came out except the sound of me choking. This went on for about a minute. I thought I was going to choke to death but then I called out to my sister, who passed away 8 years prior, and all of a sudden the pressure went away.

When I could move I ran to my parents room and checked to see if they were alright and it seemed fine. I was going to wake them but they were sound asleep so I just went back to my room and just sat there on my bed for about 45 minutes, with the light on, just muttering to myself “I believe in God” over and over again.

I told my mum the next day and she told me to put garlic under my pillow to ward off any evil spirits which I did for a good year or so and they never came back but I did have a terrifying ghostly dream about a year or so after when I decided to not have the garlic anymore.

I don’t sleep with the garlic anymore but I never sleep on my chest anymore. I always sleep on the side.

I told numerous people and they just thought I was sleeping when it happened but I know I was wide awake. But still I can’t tell if it was psychological or supernatural. I’ve heard both sides of the story and I agree with both arguments.

    It might seem weird and i have no concrete evidence but my boyfriend and i as well have had dreams of this not the man. but the god is the devil. we were both told to not trust what we know. i am catholic he is of no denomination. i have felt the witch on my back when i was 18 years old as well and havent experienced it or had a dream like it since. my boyfriend has never experienced a witch on his back but i have reason to believe he is sensitive though ive not brought it up to him

      It’s Satan trying to trick you, do not fall for it!
      Pray to God that he will never try to trick you again.

    I hope he never comes back to you! I hope sleeping on your side helps, but I do have to say that I had an experience when I was on my side because that’s how I sleep. I didn’t think you could get those experiences on your side; just on your stomach or back but I experienced it myself. Good luck I hope you never see him again!

      It hasn’t occured since except for a scary ghost dream I had a year later which was crazy where a ghost touched me on my ribcage and I woke up and my rib was hurting all day. I do feel safer sleeping on my side though.

      Hoepefully your experiences weren’t that bad

    I have had an experience recently like this. I was sleeping on my back and dreaming about watching some couples dancing at a dance hall. I started yelling in the dream “wake up , wake up!”
    Perhaps still in the dream, a “man” with reddish brown, hair a little longer than short and wearing a yellow flannel shirt looked up at me. He had been biting me on the chest and his eyes didn’t look right: really pale, kind of glowing.
    But my eyes were definitely opened, and I was awake when I saw him turn and vanish as he walked over to the door. My chest also felt funny for about an hour after this.
    I lit sage and smudged the house. I know this wasn’t a physical person who came in the house. but upon smudging the house, I discovered that the garage door was unlocked at least all night and another door to the house was actually ajar.

    I had a experience when i was about 11 years old i think my mom was having a party with bad people idk i cant remember, But anyways right when i laid on my side ready to go to bed something tickled me whatever it was had unpleasant laugh and sure had me scared, But i got right up and i grabbed my bat that i had and started to hit my bed and looked around under my bed crazy… I really dont understand why that had to happen to me, but im 19 years old now and i dont sleep on my side never! i know my story mit sound fake, but i remember as a kid how surprised it felt and how unpleasant it was it happened so fast like i did’nt know it even know something like that existed lol whatever it was it came at me very unexpected

    Oddly enough it happened to me againa few weeks ago. All I do remember is that I woke up and I couldn’t move and breath like I was being held very tight. I called out to my sister and it went away.
