Reoccurring Nightmares

Posted on April 20, 2010

I just wanted to share my experiences with sleep phenomena.

Two nightmares that taunted me for years.

1. This dream would usually occur when I’m trying to get to sleep or when I was alone. I’m going to attempt to explain this as well as I can. So here it goes:

It would seem as if I’m asleep… but I knew in my mind that I wasn’t, or, for that matter, half asleep..if such a thing can be said? It would be like total blackness as if you were to just close your eyes… but I find myself not being able to move or speak… only breathe. Then I would start hearing this horrible scream. And it wouldn’t stop… just a one toned scream over and over and over in my mind and the only way I would be able to get outta this state is to take very deep breaths… sometimes I would be to scared to go back to sleep because I didn’t wanna hear that scream again!

It just scared the crap outta me! I’ve had this dream countless times and each time it still chills my bones from the first time I remember having it.

2. This one involves one of my close cousins. We would be playing outside of my grandma’s house in the country side; where it used to be close to the creek… and we would just be sitting in the back yard doing typical kid stuff. Drawing and enjoying the outdoors. All of sudden, out of nowhere, we would glance towards the woods and on a small bluff before you get to the woods there would be some creature just standing there. Staring at us. It was all black. The closest thing I can say it resembled is a lion.

I would be so scared in this particular dream that all I could do was just sit there and look at it…I then glance over at my cousin and she’s running up the back porch to get in the house. By the time I look back at the black lion, it’s too late for me and it comes towards me like it has super speed movement or something. All I could do was sit there and put my hands over my face. By the time it seems it’s going to get me, I wake up. This dream I’ve had numerous times in the exact same order.

Thanks for reading.

    the first part sounds like sleep paralysis. Nothing supernatural about it, and hallucinations are to be expected while you are in that state, and they can seem VERY real. Most people grow out of it.

    • Danielle Hankins says:

      Thats not completely true most people dont beleive in ghost because there to naive to relize that there everywere some are good and some are bad…..we will never know!!!!!!!

      • Nana says:

        Actually, it DOES sound a bit like sleep paralysis, which is actually rather common in many people. It’s caused by your body releasing a special substance while your asleep. This substance keeps us from moving around in our sleep, and it usually is gone by the time we wake up. Sleep paralysis happens when a person wakes up and the substance isn’t yet gone, causing them to feel paralyzed for a short amount of time. It can happen multiple times in people and is only in SOME cases linked to anything paranormal. Jenn’s statement is most likely right, in this case.

    The first part of the nightmare is not a nightmare its a witchcraft attack or an attack from a wicked evil spirit. I have encountered this for several times i will advice you to be very very prayerful. You don’t have to be afraid.

    I know how you feel.

    My first suggestion:- get checked out by a doctor who will monitor any chemical imbalances you may or are likely to develop. If you check out OK then you know where you stand.

    In the summer of 1991 at age 19 I started having the same repeat dream over and over again. At first it started well enough, I would feel as if I were leaving my body and floating away. Then a shadow man came. I never saw his face but he was always angry aggressive and in an awful hurry to take me away. One night he grabbed me and insisted he was taking me with him. He never told me where. We would fight. This went on for an incredible period of six years, right through college and law school. I never told anyone at first but I could not hide it from my girlfriend who was very astute and of course could not help but notice a very peculiar sleep pattern that I had developed. For six long years I slept during the day and stayed up at night!!! This story ends with a bizarre scene playing out at my flat for which I have no memory and includes a catholic priest and two nuns. The priest died two months later and the dark man never came back. To this day 19 years later I still have an irregular sleep pattern. I have actually noticed that my brother is worse and you cannot ever ask him why.

    Understand that we are the same person whether asleep or awake. Demons and their minions are cowards. There will always be a reason why they come for you in your sleep: logically they can’t get you when you’re awake. Unless you are unwise enough to tender an invitation to a Demon via a Ouija Board or by your own lifestyle, ask yourself why you are being pursued in this manner. The answer is also logical. You have not committed to Lucifer and it is likely that you will not. Your power scares the enemy into attacking you when you appear defenseless yet someone is allowing you to fight even though you are technically asleep. There is therefore only one other logical option. Find Jesus in any way you can and do not ever deviate.


  4. Kind Skeptic says:

    I agree with Jenn in that the first event is clearly sleep paralysis and it happens to just about everyone at some point or another. During sleep paralysis, everything is heightened and sometimes buzzing/screaming/ ringing of the ears can be a bit off-putting. With regard to Event #2, you should look into Dream Analysis. You’ll find that very often, what we dream that seems like a “bad thing” is actually interpreted positively. What I mean is that this may not necessarily be a “demonic dream” — just a normal way for your psyche to address certain events in your life. I’d look into this a bit more before believing that the images of threatening.

  5. Amy Sophea Keisser says:

    I completely agree with everyone else that this is sleep paralysis, especially when you described being “half asleep” and not being able to get up or move. I honestly think this is not paranormal, but simply sleep paralysis

  6. Carlos says:

    Wow thats really frightening even the dream about the black lion creature scared me.

  7. Barrett says:

    This really scares me, let me explain. I a few days ago had a really bad night terror. I get them once in a while, but this was nothing like I have had before. I take amitriptyline because I never get tired if I don’t. I didn’t drink, I don’t do drugs as I work for a hospital pharmacy and I eat very well and never near sleep because it scares me to sleep. I fell asleep like normal a few nights ago and I don’t remember exact details but this dark shadowy beast was following me. I knew it was looking over me and protecting me but I was scared of it because I didn’t know or understand what it was. I was traversing a dark cavern underneath the ground. This was ok, I’m used to terrors like this. Normally I wake up and all is ok. It wasn’t this time. I woke up in a complete sleep paralysis. I was very delusional and I fell into a hallucination. There was a black lion that may have been a tiger, I remember it as clear as day and night, but I never was able to figure out it was exactly, but it sat at the foot of my bed 1.5 to 2 feet away, no more, no less. I was scared almost to death of it. I didn’t know why it was there, but I just felt it was there to help me. When I got my movement back, I was swinging and kicking at this object but it was no longer there. Suddenly it hit me what was going on. I was so scared, I tried to call and text anybody I could but nobody was around since it was 3am. I don’t know why I had this other than the next 2 days were really bad. I plugged in a night light now because I never want to go through that again. I’m glad this thing was there, but I never want to live that again. I really felt crazy when it happened. I don’t know what to think.
