Shadows in the Dark

Posted on April 16, 2010

I still remember that experience very well, like it was just yesterday. I was 9 years old back then. I had watched a movie that night which was supposed to be scary but it wasn’t very scary at all. But that night when I went to bed, that movie kept running through my head and I was even scared to be alone. My bedroom had two bunk beds where three of my other sisters slept – we all shared one room since it was quite big.

I fell asleep quite late that night, around 11, and then I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night not knowing what had woken me up. But I was paralyzed with fear I couldn’t move an inch! Usually I use my blanket as a protection as I feel quite safe wrapped up in it. But that time my blanket had slipped off me and I couldn’t move even to put it back on me. I just lay there stiff with fear thinking if I would be able to move ever again.

My house had never showed any signs of supernatural things or anything other than one night when my dad was reading Quranic verses when he saw and heard the sound of bags which were kept on the shelf of his room although the bags were empty. It was like something was walking on it and was trying to get out, but then soon it went away. But that’s another story.

That night I don’t know if the light was playing with my eyes, but I swear I saw shadows on the wall and I heard sounds of someone banging the tiles on my room floor. But I was too paralyzed to even turn my head around to check. It was like I could never ever move again. I lay there for hours feeling quite sad for some reason. The feeling I had that night cant be described at all. It was like I could never move or be happy again.

After a few hours of lying there silently without being able to speak or call out, I had a sudden whim to try to take my mobile which was lying right beside my pillow to call my sister who was right in the next bed. I tried to force myself to try to take the mobile but I still couldn’t move or talk. For half an hour I tried silently, but then suddenly I felt free but I still couldn’t talk. I took my mobile and gave a call to my sister. The ring of the mobile woke her up and she was surprised to see my number. So instead of picking up the mobile she jumped up to my bed and started to shake me. With a sudden burst of over-whelming feeling to cry, I told her about what happened.

Later we fell asleep with the light on.That night was the worst night of my life.I remember it just like yesterday although I’m 13 now and I still cant explain any of it.

    Your story is really scary I would hate to have those things happen to me. I remember when I was just about 10 and I would sleep and in my dreams ghost would come to me and say that they nedded my help and that they were gonna take me with them. I am 14 now and I am used to those kind of things happen to me. I only wish I would know if I have a gift or not. Your story has helped me with many questions I want to thank you for posting this story and helping me wiht my questions. :)

    Good story :)

    do you think you were just sleeping and were dreaming?im not saying your lieing at all.im just curious sounds weird of me asking but what scary movie were you watching?maybe you were so scared that you were dreaming it and you though it was real.i love scary movies.but none of them scare me.thanks for the story and i hope it doesnt happen again.i think if i were your sister i would of freaked out if i got a phone call from you even though we were next to each-other.

    do u think u must have dreamt of something that made u feel that way? or maybe u were visited by some entity that night a lot of preteen girls go through that. the kind of feeling you mentioned that u felt makes it seem like the spirit might have been bad. good thing your sister was nearby to help u out.

    Hmm it sounds like a combination of things. I have a few theories. One of them is that you may of worked yourself up from the movie and coincidently had sleep paralysis. Im not saying sleep paralysis is or isn’t paranormal, but that kinda sounds like it. Another thing maybe that you thinking about the scary movie made your senses more aware for you’re fear of the unreal and you just so happened to pick up on something that very much was real but previously overseen or unnoticed. There could be more possibilites. Who knows. That’s my two cents. Feel better friend :)

    Sincerely,
