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?

I just experienced this too last night and I am not really sure if it was a dream or it was real, but it feels so real. I heard someone spoke in front of my face but I can’t understand what he/she is trying to say, it just sounded like a mumbling. I can’t move and scream too so I pray and call Jesus in my head and luckily I could wake up

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.

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.

Hey..don’t be afraid. Here are the tools. 1. Sleep with an open bible next to you…psalm 23. 2. If it comes command it to go in the name of Jesus and ask God to send it to the lake of fire. Here is what you say. “I command you to leave in the name of Jesus, never come near me again. I send you to the lake of fire in the name of Jesus”. 3. Know that you are stronger than these beings …there scared of you more than you are scared of them. You are both human and spirit… Read more »

This same experience happened to me my first year of College Room 316 at Capital University in Columbus, OH. I too could not move, and felt strange pressure over me and could not speak. I wanted to scream, cry, and move but I couldn’t. I mentally began to pray as well. All that was by me was a dark figure. As soon as I was released I ran to the first floor to my friends bedroom and stayed there all night. I definitely don’t think this was a case of sleep paralysis.

I think I was 17 the first time I was attacked by what I call the blacks!! I woke up very suddenly and new something was wrong straight away… Something didnt feel right, it wasn’t a normal way to wake!! I woke instantly to a shock and dreadful fear, I was totally paralysed couldnt move a muscle! My eyes where open and there was a looming darkness over my body growing in size and the blackness becoming more dense! It was chocking me, I couldn’t breathe or shout out for help. I felt it was trying to enter my body… Read more »

Ive always had bad sleeping habits but this has to be one of the weirdest unexplained things. Mine are very similar but sometime it feels like someone is trying to lift me to float or push me off the bed. Sometimes its just my feet or hands trying to float. It seems like im fully conscious but cant move any part of my body on my own will. I never see anyone but i definitely feel a presence. On occasion i can even feel the hands that are trying to lift me but mostly its just a force. Its to… Read more »

i just had an experience smiliar to this about 10 minutes ago. i was just about to fall asleep when i relized i couldn’t move. i couldn’t open my eye or do anything besides think. i felt a very strong evil presence or vibe.i started freaking out, but then i started to focus. i think my mind was too strong for the spirit or ghost or whatever it was because it could only disable my body functions for about 30 seconds to a minute. afterwards i still felt the spirit and told it to go away in my head. and… Read more »

this has happened to me since i was a child and im a very light sleeper, if anyone walks into my room i wake up from theyre presence alone most of the time. ive always had the paralysis happen to me and im convinced its not a natural human function becaause over the years it has affected me diffrently especially when i moved at the age of 16. im also not very religious but believe in a higher power. i have felt a tingling feeling crawling up my foot to my thigh and i wake up immobilized and i would… Read more »

Soon as I moved I woke up and rolled over to the side of the bed when I did that It felt like I was laying on someone’s legs. I avoided it and rolled back the other way I thought about what was going on and instantly decide to push this thing off my bed as soon I tried to push I… Read more »

Ok my family have had experience with this all my life, i come from a line of spiritually powerful people. i’am born british but from an asian country and those countries are rife with the supernatural so we get to learn about things in detail more so than others. The women in our family are more attuned to the supernatural than men i am a male so my abilities are not as strong as my mother for instance but i make up for that with more knowledge. Anyway i will let you know their are different kinds of ghost, spirits… Read more »

Hi I’m Bo. On occasions his problem happens to me especially when I’m very tired to the point I’m use to it. Is very scary but I don’t give in to it I call on Jesus name an it goes away. I’ve heard that a “witch or the devil” riding your back. I don’t now exactly what it is but with God on your side you can overcome it.. By the way if u take a bible an put it under your pillow when you sleep it don’t it hardly ever comes back. So, I’m thinking it can be a… Read more »
