Sleep Paralysis or Being Attacked by a Ghost/Spirt?

This has happened to me 2 or 3 times over the course of a year, and it’s honestly scared the living shit out of me.

I was completely sound asleep, and then I was awoken by this horrible presence. I just felt like there was a very evil presence looming right over me. I was awake, but I could not open my eyes, and I could not move a muscle no matter how hard I tried. I started to panic, and I remember telling my limbs to physically move, but I could not move any part of my body to save my life. Then I felt something pushing me down further into my bed. Whatever the presence was, it felt very evil. I just felt overwhelmed with fear. I tried to open my eyes, but I couldn’t. I tried to scream, but I couldn’t.

Now, I’m Catholic. I believe in God, and I believe in Jesus. But I’m not one of those extremely religious people. So I’m not just some crazy person making up a story here. I don’t really go to church, but I pray sometimes when I feel the need to. And when this episode was happening to me, I desperately felt the need to pray to God. I was afraid that I was being possessed or something. So I started saying Hail Mary’s in my head because I could not speak. I prayed in God and I asked him to make this evil presence go away. Literally as soon as I did that, I felt something lift off me. I could move again, and I woke up, shaken. I couldnt sleep in my bedroom for a couple of nights. I was seriously disturbed. That was about a year ago, and just a couple of nights ago, it happened to me again.

I just dont know what this is. I remember in my psychology class that I read something about sleep paralysis, but it was something that scientists could not fully understand what causes it. Was this just sleep paralysis that I was feeling, or was it what I really think it was…an evil spirt that forced itself onto me, and restrained me? It was the most scary, unusual thing that’s ever happened to me. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Does anyone have a logical explaination, or any information regarding this phenomenon?

  • Hello,
    I am really worried. It is 415am and my 2yr old daughter and I have been having horrible experiences at night in this new apt. She wakes up screaming go away momma,Dada come. She has even started sleeping on her stomach with her face either down or to the side. She is always sitting up looking for us. There is times her room is cold for no reason when I go in. I have never seen anything though. Well stupidly I started talking out loud saying please leave me and my child at peace while we sleep that we mean them no harm. Now I am being woke up abruptly by things happening in my room as well. Garbage can next my bed moved to the middle of the floor. This does not effect my husband though and he sleep s right next to me. I have a bible out on my bed stand open to psalms 23. We have also started reading prayers with my daughter before bed. Is this sleep paralysis or something else.

  • Im a Christian also it has happened to me i felt it right beside me, under me, and above me AT THE SAME TIME!! it was like slender was in my room! 🙁 D: It was just once also there was blood on my floor but no one had any cuts for 2 months!

  • I t has happened to me and sometimes I feel like I am looking right at the person in my home but they are not even aware of what is going on cause they are sleep I was told that it is a war within your spirit especially if you are a child of God the devil is afraid of the warrior you are and will do anything to keep you from the battle but just pray and call on the name if Jesus because he will not let any harm come to you as I seen in another post recite the 23 psalms The Lord is my Shepard I shall not want he makers me to lye down in green pastures that prayer really helps my latest attack was today and has not happened on years but I have been going back to church more so I am guessing that had some hand in it he do not want you to get close to god but as I called on the name of Jesus I heard a scream noooooo is what it said that’s because it knows there is no fight here my God is awesome and no harm will he let come to me

  • I have had these attacks. last one hasn’t been as bad as some. few times I have seen dark figurines looking down at me almost like demons or aliens. I have found moldavite crystals have helped. since I wear it at night I haven’t had any bad attacks. but when I don’t wear it I have had them. it’s scary as heck. its amazing how much I think im screaming and flaring my legs and arms but my bf at the time says I do tense up and breath different but don’t move an inch.

I don’t to waste my life bieng scared.. 🙁

    • If you feel it is spirit it probably is x just tell it to leave u alone before bed x also putting salt out your front and back door and telling all the bad spirits to please leave x but please try not to be scared if it doesn’t go away then it’s only trying to tell you something xxx hope this helps xx

  • This is not a spirit, it is sleep paralysis. I had the same things for years. You have to take more B12 into your diet. Ever since I started taking B12 supplements, 500mg… I stopped having it completely. I thought it was evil spirits too until I realized it was happening every time I would stay awake too long. It’s an imbalance. Trust me. Take a B12 supplement everyday, low dosage if you can and you will see how fast that sleep paralysis will stop. I speak from experience.
