Sleep paralysis is happening way too often to way too many people to simply be the result of normal body functions. If it is a normal part of the sleep cycle – or if it’s due mainly to sleep deprivation or stress — then why doesn’t everyone experience it? Or why hasn’t everyone experienced at least a few episodes of it? Nearly all of us are seriously stressed out and/or sleep deprived at least once in a while, no?
I believe this syndrome has been occurring through the course of history, but is growing more frequent due to more global interest in New Age, Numerology, the Occult, Paranormal events, etc., which is bringing people who have little to no interest in those things into the world of witchcraft, Vampirism, Occult, New Age, demonism, shamanism, etc., whether we want to be a part of it or not.
I believe with 100 percent certainty that this purported “sleep paralysis” is initiated by a supernatural entity, for one thing. It is called “psychic vampirism” as odd as that sounds and it is an entity who has died. This entity is, most often, a shaman or “witch doctor” or “black magic person” who has passed away and is now in the astral zone, during which time it makes a quick “roadstop” to a sleeping person’s bed.
During that time it (I say “It” because I have trouble personalizing something so vile) it attempts to leech energy from its sleeping victim by scaring the person or by sexually tantalizing the person. Both of these strategies elicit a generous dose of energy for the psychic vampire which is what it needs to sustain its astral body. If it cannot steal energy from victims, the astral shell will disintegrate and the entity will go to the lowest astral plane which is where it does not want to go – not yet anyway.
After it gets its fix, it leaves, often returning to the same spot until it either gets bored and finds someone else, until you find a way to get rid of it for good (I don’t know how to do that yet) or until its astral body dies off completely and it is relegated to the lowest form in the astral plane. Apparently it chooses sleeping people for its fix because the energy emitted from a sleeping person during a good “scare” is very beneficial to the psychic vampire. Same thing when it sexually stimulates its victims. Siphoning sexual energy makes it a great day for the vampiric astral invader.
Incidentally, these astral vampires can be dead humans or they can simply be “entities,” i.e., nondescript, other-worldly creatures,usually odious, loathsome things. Just this morning I had been researching this syndrome and, because I am on night work this week, went to bed. It was around 9:40 a.m. when I retired. I was sleeping on my back as always. Just as I dropped off to sleep and was really “out,” I felt a presence grabbing at a part of my body that you can use your imagination to determine. At that point I froze, knowing what would happen next. I felt a presence get very heavy and oppressive as it bore down on my stomach and chest, pinning me to my bed. I tried to move – even an arm or a finger – and felt powerless to do so. At the same time I felt a pressure behind my head on my pillow and on top of my head, and a presence to my immediate right. The presence to my right was actually growling, exactly like the type of growling that you hear on the beginning of certain “haunted” or “paranormal” shows such as the one narrated by that guy from x-files.
Anyway, I lay there feeling so desperate and paralyzed and not being able to lift any part of my body even though I struggled with every ounce of my being. The THING pressed down on me, restraining me with all of its might. Apparently this was one well-fed psychic vampire because while I was becoming drained of energy it seemed to be full of it.
If you do a search on psychic vampires you will turn up information that supports this theory. I am not certain of it, but I will tell you something else. The other night I was thinking about the sleep paralysis horror and I began thinking of names. I don’t know why, but foreign sounding names were coming into my mind. I sounded out a word and wrote it down on a piece of scrap paper.
The next day as I began doing some Google searches on the “sleep paralysis” topic and its associated terrors, I came across the articles on “Psychic vampires.” One of the papers addressed the topic of “magick” and “shaman priests, shamanism,” etc. I clicked on it and began to read. Half-way down the page I came to a section that described the “West Semitic” high priests of Magick and Shamanism . I read the names that came under the heading. That’s when I almost went into shock. One of the words looked terribly familiar and I knew why immediately. It looked similar to the name that had come to me the night before. I pulled out the paper and compared the two words. Here is the word/name: Ishlelhalom. (I believe this is how I spelled it, but even if a couple of letters were written differently from the name I found in the article, to me it was close enough.)
I believe that the thing attacking me is a Western Semitic dead shaman (a high priest of black magick or whatever they call it) who is leeching energy from sleeping people so he will be able to extend his life before slipping into the lowest plane of the cosmos – Hell, which is where he belongs forever and forever.
Before concluding I’m crazy, do a bit of research yourself and see if you don’t turn up something similar to this theory if not the same scenario.
