Sleep Paralysis Battle for My Soul

Posted on June 14, 2010

Hi everyone! Let me start by saying I have always been a vivid dreamer, ever since I was a young child! I constantly dream throughout the night. I remember every detail, and color.

I have always had a difficult time dealing with whatever stresses I experience in my life. Whether I am arguing with my mother or my boyfriend. I always seem to work it out in my dreams, and get out what I really wanted to say! But, I always wake feeling better.

For the last 10 years or so, I have been experiencing very disturbing dreams. They don’t happen frequently, maybe once or twice a year. Some times there is a gap of a year or two, but always when I am under an extreme amount of stress.

I am being attacked physically. This… Thing, whatever it is, is not good. I cannot give you a physical description of it. It is more of a sense, or a feeling of It that I remember most. It is dark. It is nasty. Whenever it comes to me, my first feeling is that it is demonic.

Whenever I dream of It, Its purpose is always the same. It wants to bring me to Hell and claim me for Satan.

It says things like “I want you!” or “I am taking you!” I have always fought It off by saying things like “No!” or “You can’t. I belong to God!” And then I start to pray. Always the Lords Prayer. Every time I do this, I feel strong in my belief that God will protect me. With every word I say, I feel this Thing can not hurt me! I am always successful in getting It to go away. But, It always comes back.

It has been about 3 or 4 months since the last time I had this dream, and it did not go quite as well as it has in the past.

I had recently (about 2 months prior to this last dream) gone through a very difficult time. I was going through a separation with my children’s father. It happened so fast, one day we were a family the next, done. Over. I think I pretty much hit rock bottom. I attempted suicide (more than once). To say I questioned God and my Faith, I think would be an understatement! (I am not trying to turn this into a Bible thumping post. I just want you to understand where my head was at)

The last time It came to me in my dream, it was very different from every other dream. I was weak. I was questioning every aspect of my life. Especially myself! Why am I here? What is it all for? I truly wanted my life to end, and I think It knew that! When I said my dream was different, it was much more violent than it had EVER been. It was trying to attack me not just physically,  but sexually too! I was literally kicking and punching at It in my sleep. Every inch of my body was fighting to beat this Thing back. I was shouting at it too!  In my dream I said all the things I usually say to get this sucker to go away, but none of it was working. It was much stronger than I was at that point. Even though I am telling It “No!”, I could FEEL that I was tired, not as strong. As I said to It “I belong to God!” there was a little doubt in me.

When I finally awoke I was so drained physically and emotionally. To this day I know that I almost lost the battle for my very Soul.

It will be back. I know It hasn’t given up. I just hope I will be stronger and ready for the fight.

In my mind I KNOW that this is Sleep Paralysis, but, in my heart I feel it is something entirely different.

    Hi Anon32,

    I am sorry to hear of your experiences and all of your assumptions sound right on to me. You have stated several times in your post that your biggest issue is that it keeps coming back. Don’t you wonder why it keeps coming back? You say that you believe in God and you tell this entity that you are God’s, I and I believe that you are telling the truth. But there is much more missing from your relationship to God that keeps it coming back. See God may choose to pull you out of the fire, so to speak, when you call upon His mighty name, and it sounds like He has done it several times. What God wants you to do in response to His miracle rescue is for you took seek to know Him more through His son Jesus. God is not just our EMS or 911 to call on only when we are in dire need of Him. The only way to a great relationship with God is through a daily relationship with His son Jesus, who die for our sins as a “once and for all sacrifice” and all we have to do is accept it and seek to know Jesus more. Jesus said many times in the Bible that if you Know Me, then you know My Father in Heaven. You have to make a commitment to God through Jesus before He makes a full time commitment to you. If He pulls you out of trouble and you just take advantage of it and seek Him no further, He will turn you over to your own devices.

    I’m glad that you made it out okay! Is your life getting any better?

    This does seem very demon-like. Demons will wait for months, even years just to throw you off guard and make you think that they aren’t coming back. What you encountered was most likely what I just explained. Just remember, keep a clear head and don’t let it get the better of you. God is a million times more powerful than any demon.

    Demons thrive off of your negative, sad and angry feelings. Their invitation into your life is your negative feelings and doubt in God. This is why they appear in your troubled times – they are made strong by your sadness. However, demons are repelled by any happy feelings (happy feelings carry the holy spirit). Use this to your advantage – no demon will touch you, as long as you are faithful and happy. Staying happy isn’t an easy thing to do, so try simple things as remembering happy moments when you’re sad or playing happy music. Whatever keeps you happy.

    Finally, just remember that this is a battle. You have to be strong. The demon has begun to think that it can have control over you, that you belong to them. They will try to take you by force, and if that fails then they will try to trick you into thinking that you belong to them and belong with them in hell. This isn’t true. You belong to God and to God alone, so make the demon realize it. The sooner you do it, the sooner it will leave.

    (P.S. When you separated your children’s father, the sorrow that followed afterwords could have been a trick from the demon. It could have made you try to commit suicide and lose your faith in God. This is just my take on what happened, so I’m not sure whether or not this actually happened.)

    I wish you the best of luck for the future and hope that this thing leaves you soon!

      Thank you very much for your thoughtful reply and great advice… I am doing much better and have not had any experiences! Although, I have taken up praying again before I go to sleep. :) I am much stronger now, happier and healthy… I have found my strength in my children again and realize how my actions could have effected my little ones for the rest of their lives, and that is the last thing I want for them… Looking forward to whatever is ahead… Thank You very much for taking the time to read this and help!

    The end of a relationship can be very difficult, especially when there are children involved. There are support groups you can work with and I encourage you to look into joining one as soon as possible. Just being able to relieve the stress by talking out your fears and frustrations can do wonders in helping you heal and rest properly. You sound a bit torn about “the end” of your relationship, as though you were not ready for it to happen. That said, a great deal of guilt and self loathing can accompany this very stressful experience and can certainly drive a great deal of discomfort, physically, emotionally and mentally. Find a support group and share. I guarantee you will feel much better in the end — and these “demons” just might disappear from your life. Live well and strongly….

    Thank you for sharing, I have recently experienced this as well. There should be a support group for us going through this. It’s such a horrible experience and I have been a really good person. It makes you wonder why you? And why are they here?

    • Nana says:

      You said that you’ve been haunted by these demons for a while? I have a bit of info that may help.

      Demons can only access your life if you’ve given them a reason. They are summoned by focusing a large amount of energy on them. Usually it doesn’t matter whether or not their victim has been a good person, it only matters whether or not the victim focused a large amount of energy on demons.

      Focusing energy on demons is usually done subconsciously, and the victim themselves won’t even know that they’ve opened a portal for demons to pass through. Even things like reading a lot about demons or becoming really immensely interested in the paranormal is focusing a lot of energy on the demons.

      The problem with a demon is that if they’ve been summoned then it probably means that they won’t be too eager to go back from where they came from. They believe that they have a right to be there and control your life. The good thing is, however, that demons can be pushed forcefully from your life by using both your own spiritual strength and the strength of God. Pray a lot and try not to be scared by them. This will probably help you a lot, and at the least will weaken the demon’s will to stay.

      I hope this helps, and best luck for the future!
