Waking Dream Or Spirit Encounter?

Posted on March 19, 2009

I wrote last week about experiencing a possible waking dream wherein my body remains at rest but I’m awake and unable to move. (Waking dream Or Ghostly Chemist?)

This was an odd moment.� I was home after work and my roommate wasn’t home.� I left my bedroom door open and I took a nap.� It was a nice day and my room was filled with the light that spilled in through the vertical blinds.� My fan was on as usual for a little white noise.

During the day, across the street there are a few soccer matches, so voices typically can be heard coming in through the bathroom window, so hearing voices isn’t that uncommon.

What is uncommon however, is what happened next.� I woke from sleeping, only to realize I couldn’t move.� My eyes were open, and I could clearly see everything in my room.� Now we all know, that sleep paralysis can cause hallucinations, but this was different.� The voices I heard were different from the usual voices.� It was clear that there were two men and one woman.� There was also an unusual sight around my open door.

Around the door was what seemed to be RED Lighting bolts…� They went all the way around the area of the door that I could see.� It was so strange.� I closed my eyes.� I was so scared, and then I was able to move, but even though I could move, I didn’t want to.� There was that feeling of dread that people always say accompanies a haunting.

A few days later, I was reading a story about the history of someone’s house.� I began to wonder if there was any research I could do on my apartment building.� I typed in the address into a search engine and something came up.� It turns out, during the Summer of 2006, there had been a fire in my building and a 53 year old man, had suffered critical burns to most of his body.� An apartment number was not listed. That red lighting bolt around my door began to make sense.

I was reading my bible last night and I began to hear something outside my bedroom door.� It sounded like someone was walking right outside my door.� I became scared and spoke to whatever it was.� After a few minutes of staring at the bottom of the door, the energy seemed to leave.� I felt an amazing sense of relief.� Could this be the apartment that burned?

    That was weird. I have never expericed anything like that. Are you going to move out?

    I have expericenced this before. I was sleeping one night and woke up. My eyes were open and I could not move. I was laying on my left side. There was a sound like an isolating fan in right ear. I could not move. I had a very uneasy feeling about what was behind me. I was trying to rock back and forth hoping the force would make me fall on my back. My husband moved and my body fell back. I took a deep breath and woke him up to tell him what had happened. I have moved out of that home and into another. I have not had this happen again. I cannot explain it other than to say, it was like I was in another world and something was scaring me.

    Hi Moya,

    I don’t think I’m going to move out. I think I just need to pray and if for some reason there is a spirit in the place, maybe I can help them move on. Maybe.

    Hey nice experience…
    I’ve had sleep paralysis too and the whole topic itself is quite controversial. Psychologists are likely to say it is a phase bordering reality and dreams but i tend to disagree with this because it’s all well to experience a vivid, near-authentic, interactive dream but too wake up with blood, bruises and scratches all over your body is another thing, especially when you ‘dreamed’ of being assaulted.

    I think your experience was legitimate, particularly the fire coinciding with the red bolts….

    I think a suitable compromise would be that when we enter this phase in sleep paralysis we become more susceptible to spiritual activities because of some energy fluctuation on an alternate plane. This could possibly be related to our physiology on a cellular level, but would on be on a different plane. (this is totally hypothetical but these theories are becoming more and more accepted and validated in the paranormal)

    very interesting Alpha. Sounds like a movie. But the number of people who experience this “phenomena” is rather large.
