Sleep Paralysis

Why Am I Having Sleep Paralysis Only in that House?

I have had the same occurrence happen to me while sleeping at my ex’s home. I fall asleep perfectly fine but numerous times I have awoken to not being able to move or breathe. I tried to scream to him for help and yelled as loud as I possibly could but all that came out was what sounded like a whisper.

This is really scaring me and only happens to me when I stay in his home. I had stayed over at a friend’s house and was able to sleep all the way through the night without an incident.

Last night I could have swore I seen a dark shadow move around on the ceiling and it seemed as if it was getting closer to me and I thought I heard a man talking to me. Can anybody give me an idea of what’s going on?

Sleep Paralysis Astral Attacks Recurring Dreams and Strange Creature

I experience sleep paralysis / astral attacks on occasion. Generally I tell them to leave me alone and it works. The last time, the being that was meddling with me was about 5 1/2 feet tall, brown all over, with medium length brown hair.

Last night me boyfriend was discussing a recurring dream he has been having and described the same creature. (I had never mentioned my experience to him before.) Adding that he thought it looked like it was made of old wood a face like a Native American totem pole.

He added that some time ago he dreamed (or thought it was a dream) that this creature was holding while he slept. He then fought it and threw it out a window. The dream was so real that he heard the window shatter and had to check it when he woke. Since then, he says occasionally he’ll wake in the night and glance out the window to see it staring in at him.

I was wondering if anyone might know what this could be. Thank you.

Sleep Paralysis or Something More?

Ok so this has happened twice and this second time (it just happened 10 minutes ago) was the worst, I just fell asleep and woke up thinking to myself I want to sleep so bad and my whole body was numb from head to toe and I couldn’t talk I couldn’t move or anything.

I was so scared I was finally able to yell and just started crying my roommate woke up and immediately came to my side. The first time it happened something was over top of me saying something I couldn’t understand and I wasn’t able to move or talk than either but this time was so much worse.

When this was happening I was staring at my wall and saw nothing but red and I was thinking in my head please god make it stop. What does this mean?

Normal for Sleep Paralysis in the Day?

I have had sleep paralysis at night and… during the day.

My first experience was late at night around 3:35 am. I felt like i was awake but could not move and was freezing cold, though covered with blankets. Lasted about 5 – 10 minutes.

The second was actually during the day, about 7 – 8am, I was awake, as it seemed and I felt pressure on my back as I was laying on my back. I could not move my head and i heard voices around me, but could not look up to see and I felt like multiple things were touching me. This lasted roughly around 2 – 3 minutes.

Never really had any experiences like this before. So far nothing else has happened other than this.

My question is, is it normal for sleep paralysis to happen during the day as well as night?

Sleep Paralysis or Something Darker?

Ever since I’ve been 5 I’ve had a strong faith, but I’ve also believed in another realm as well.

It all started at 5, we lived in a very old house where a man killed himself in the barn (because he heard voices). My first experience was me and my friend Halle were outside in the dark playing, and we both looked over, part of the yard was darker than the other half of the yard. We disregarded this and kept playing, then we heard something and looked to the darker half of the yard and saw two huge red eyes, there were no pupils and no face, there are absolutely no way to describe these eyes. We went inside, being children we never told a soul thinking no one would believe us.

After that I started having bad dreams. Like a zombie thing killed our preacher and a toy maker. I also disregarded this. Then I had a dream about my dad leaving in this new truck that was small, he had another woman in the car and my older brother and little sister. But not me or my older sister… then I had one about me and my little sister and big brother. My big brother started getting attacked and eaten by zombies. The last thing he did while dying was look at me and say, “take Josie go go go! to granny’s” and so I left my big brother and took my little sister to granny’s were we stayed.

Then the sleep paralysis started. I slept on my stomach. I would wake up and try to move but I couldn’t, I couldn’t breath. So I just stayed calm, and prayed. I prayed in my head because I couldn’t breath. What ever happened to me was heavy.

Then when I was around 7 I got sick, deathly sick, and I had a dream of my dead cousin Jonathan. He passed away of cancer and he was 19 or 18. I said to him, “Jonathan what are you doing here, you know your moms going to be mad. She thinks your dead!” And he spoke, “oh hun, I’m not dead only asleep.” With that he left. In my dream no one saw him but me. No one even heard him but me.

After some time this stopped. But I hated being alone. I wouldn’t play by myself or be alone at all. I felt something watching me and felt uncomfortable.

One night, when I was supposed to be in bed, I heard mom talking to my aunt and granny about what used to happen to me when I was a baby. “Well when she was a baby she would wake up and come into our room saying, “momma monsters in my room.” “I would look at her back and there would be scratch marks all over my back.” After finding this out I became curious about what this thing was.

Right when it sparked my curiosity is when it all stopped. Nothing ever happened after these dreams and things – Until we moved into our new house. I was around 10 in the 4th grade (I failed 1st). We moved just down the road from a graveyard. My cousin was buried there. Then dad bought the truck I dreamed about when I was 5, the small one. Then mom and him got a divorce. Mom moved into her boyfriends house. I was 11, my dad took my little sister and older brother. He got a new girlfriend… the one I dreamed about at 5, her name was Susan.

After that Judith (my older sister) started talking to this imaginary friend named C (I refuse to think or type his name) we all ignored it until C started to get physical. That’s when I started feeling discomfort again. I hated being alone. When one night I dreamed of a demon burning down the church and burning the preacher. I was the only one with water to save the preacher and the demon turned to me and said, “you can not have him he’s mine, your god has no power you can not cross,” and I spoke back, “my god has all the power… now watch me cross,” and I walked through the demon and saved the preacher.

A couple months later I got a dreadful feeling. Then my aunt came and spoke to mom. I don’t know what she said but what I do know is mom started screaming my baby, my baby. So I got out of bed and ran to mom. That’s when I found out my brother had killed himself, shot himself in the left side of the brain. I got in my aunts car and me and my little sister went to granny’s house were I dreamed of a demon in front of my mother… it was the same demon from before and he said, “you cant cross you have not power,” I looked down then back up and said to the beast, “watch me,” and prayed while walking through it.) The thing disappeared.

Then when I went back to 302 Hobson Ave. or as I call it the demons house, mom and my sister got possessed by something. I really got scared then it was so scary to see my mom in pain. I prayed and prayed to god hoping then he could really hear me good. When mom finally was controlable and the demon had left mom hugged me and said, “I’m glad nothing happened to you.” I asked her what she meant and she said, “if you touch someone who is possessed you’ll get possessed next,” this made me think. I carried mom out of the truck into the house where Judith put her on the couch.

How come nothing happened to me? All I got was scratches on my back. But Judith got it. It sparked my curiosity again. The night before mom left David and we left the demons house I was asleep and heard a woman’s voice say, “leave now!” and kicked me in back of the head. That night we left. After that nothing really happened but I felt stalked. I thought this to be paranoia and ignored it. When I went to my cousins house, they lived next door to the demons house, we went and visited the new residence. A witch lived there.

She said there were 3 main demons and their names all started with C. One woman and 2 men. I knew who she spoke of but stayed quiet. Her boyfriend didn’t believe her, so he went into one of the closets and started saying, “aw come on show me what ya got!” Nothing happened and he was about to come out when the closet door locked itself (the door has no lock) then he started screaming. When we finally got him out he had 3 names carved in his back. They all started with C, 1 girls and 2 boys. I knew what had happened, and me and the witch both new what things did this to him.

When I was 12 mom and David got back together but we lived in our old house. I hated David and will always hate him. He started to abuse my mother mentally and I was in my room crying afraid of their fights, when I heard a knock at my window. I saw a guy. He was white mist, but some how I knew him. I opened my window. I never knew his real name and still don’t but he let me call him Jesse. Then we spoke and he’d even cuddle in bed with me so I wouldn’t`t be afraid. Then Jesse started getting violent with David.

Soon mom and David broke up and when I was 14 I found out we were moving to Maryville Tennessee. We visited it a couple days later and every time I wished for something. I would get it. I wished I had 50 dollars and I just happened to get 50 dollars because someone threw it in the river.

At first I thought it was a one time thing but I started hearing boots, heavy big boots, follow me everywhere. When then I started dreaming of this big black blob of evil. It was huge and smelled like a thousand dead bodies that had been rotting for centuries. But this thing never hurt me and through the whole dream I would just stare at it horrified.

When me and my friend thought it would be cool to make our own Ouija board. We played with it and nothing happened. When she went home I played by myself. I came in contact with nothing. The only thing that happened was it felt like my hand was floating. I asked if someone was there and it went to yes and I didn’t believe it so I asked again and it started going in circles really fast. I didn’t ask it anything I just got up and tried to run. I stared at it for a little and I swear it spelled out – I’ve always been with you – but I really don’t know.

Then I had a dream about a demon being possessed with me. I have had dreams where I have had its child, where I ran from it, and so on

Its gotten so strong now that it tried to close my door and lock it. So we put my tower in front of it and my mom has come in to see my door try to close with the tower in front of it. When I thought it had finally stopped I slept with my door closed again and I herd taps on my wall. I got scared so I prayed and it got right above my head and I just passed out. Just yesterday I heard it say hello to me and I saw it in front of my window. I noticed more features in it this time. Its really tall and really fugly.

Can some one help? I’m scared. I’m Christian and always have been. But this thing is possessed with me. It stalks me everywhere. I want helpful answers to get rid of it. It always grants my wishes and protects m, but it scares me too. I know its something but what? Should I trust it or fear it? I’m so confused.

How Can I Get Rid of this Sleep Paralysis Ghost?

Currently I am 17 years old and I just moved into my best friends refurbished basement. I usually sleep with my friend in the room down there. However, she slept upstairs for the past two nights. During those two nights I have been overcome by something.

I laid there at 3:00 am, and I was fully awake, just about to go to sleep when I realized I couldn’t move. I tried screaming, but nothing would come out of my mouth. That’s when I saw it. It was wearing clothes that had been tossed around in the room, it was trying to tell me something but I was so gripped with fear that I was completely focused on trying to move or say something that I blocked it out, for a while. After 10 minutes I realized that I was out of luck.

I sat there forced to listen to this ghost about an actual event that occurred in 1746. I was taken aback when I had flashes of torture or the event occurring. As the flashes were going through my mind I could feel the pain and suffering of this person.

After almost two hours I could finally move again. However my clothes had been removed and completely soaked with water. I was so freaked out that I refused to stay in that room and got absolutely no sleep.

The following night, I was told to try sleeping down there again, so I saged the room (How to Smudge with Sage)and I tried expelling the force that was there with me. I fell asleep to find my self paralyzed yet again at 1:40. This time the spirit came to me and was sitting there trying to get me to listen in the computer chair I have in the room. I was scared and I knew that I couldn’t do anything. This time it only lasted an hour but the spirit was angry. It was sitting there tormenting me, it sat there just talking to me telling me that I was worthless and I have no reason to live.

I woke up to having over 20 scratches on my body and yet again my clothes were in the same spot soaked yet again. I feel like I can no longer sleep in this house and I would really like some answers as to how I can get rid of this thing.

Sleep Paralysis or Something Different?

Ok so for almost 2 years while in high school I suffered from sleep paralysis. It left me so tired and petrified in the morning that I would be afraid to go to sleep again. I later read that can make the paralysis persist.

The only thing strange that I haven’t been able to find with other peoples stories is with what they saw. I’ve seen the shadows going over my bed seeming to walk, that never scared me that bad. I would see people some nights, and it was almost like they were trying to tell me things. Like one day I ran into a lady and her baby, she didn’t speak English and I was studying Spanish and I helped her tell the hairstylist what she wanted done. The whole time I couldn’t figure out why she was acting so strange, like she was afraid.

That night I had sleep paralysis and it usually left me well paralyzed! This night I sat up and she was laying on the ground holding her child and saying “Carlos”, she looked terrified and completely real! Then I looked to where she was pointing and there was a black mass. That’s all I remember before I woke up but I had several like that. I never found out anymore about her but it was strange.

I come from Cherokee decent and I am a quarter, my grandfather had a gift and could see things before they happened. When I told him he said spirits might have taken notice of my gift and wanted to speak with me but she wasn’t dead that day.

I seldom have sleep paralysis nowadays but if anyone could help resolve this I would be grateful! Thanks.

Sleep Paralysis and Levitation?

A patient of mine recently described that for the last two months he has been going to bed at around 11pm, and waking up between 1 and 3 am. He reported that initially, his arms and legs would just be spasming or twitching, which led me to believe that it was sleep paralysis. However, he reported that as time passed, he would wake up, be floating 2 feet over his bed, fighting an unseen force, losing, and then would be thrown onto the floor. Last night he hit the corner of his eye on the nightstand.

A week ago, he banged his arm hard on some other furniture across the room. He also reported a grey/orange shadow. Can you help shed any light on this subject? I don’t believe he is crazy. He is of Hispanic culture and I need to know what to tell him, from a believer’s point of view…

Thank you so much for any help or insight you can offer.

Sleep Paralysis in Only One Specific Place?

Our family is widespread so we tend to travel a lot. Whenever we are visiting the grandparents (mine) we stay in their guest house. There are 4 bedrooms in the guest house but there is one certain one that I avoid. If I sleep in that bed room I always have extreme nightmares and often wake up completely paralyzed.

I have never had this happen anywhere else. I have read the sleep paralysis stuff here and other places and everyone seems to be saying it is just a normal thing. Why does it happen to me only there?
