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?

  3. Hi, everyone I looked at this sight and found it very strange that people from around the world are having the same type of dreams that I have. I think I have had almost 15 to 20 experiences of this matter in a dream or I think I am dreaming. Just recent I had one where I was laying in bed and something or someone was behind me pushing me down in my bed. I tried to move but the only thing I could move was my eyes in front of me and I barely could move them. I tried to call out to Jesus 3 times but I couldn’t get the words to come out. I knew something was wrong cause I get these dreams mostly when I’m doing something bad, thinking something bad, or not praying to the Father at all. I finally grabbed an arm but I could not see the are from behind me, I tried to lift the arm away but the strength was so strong I couldn’t move it away from me. Eventually I started to pray hard and call out to Jesus and then I got up from my bed. I ran to the bathroom in the dream and grabbed my blessed oil and through it on the bed where I thought the spirit was. I went back to the bathroom and looked in the mirror and my mouth was full of white foam. From dream sources it symbolizes a filthy angry mouth and bad heart. I was just cussing at a bf before he left and I was angry with him before I had the dream. I then looked in the mirror of my bedroom and found me praying and singing a spiritual song “Shine Jesus Shine” by Crystal Lewis. If you guys never heard of that song then please look it up and see what her lyrics are in that song. I say all this to say that these dreams are not by coincidence, I do not believe it’s sleep paralysis from all my experiences. But what I do think is that when we are away from Christ spiritually whether in the heart or mind or both then he gives us a warning on what’s going on when we’re not close to him. The devil and his demons come after us and we give them the power to kill us spiritually resulting in spiritual death when we don’t acknowlege Jesus as our savior and repent from all our sins. We should pray each day when we have a bad thought and repent to God that he will deliver us from evil. There is a spiritual warfare out there and we need to get it together before its to late for us as a people or we will die in sin. Romans 7:9-25 says, “Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and died. I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death. For sin,seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death. So then the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous, and good. Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! Nevertheless, in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it used what is good to bring about my death, so that through the commandment sin might be come utterly sinful. We know that the law is spiritual but I am unspiritual sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do, And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to — this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me who does it. So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am? Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.” Meditate on that whoever is reading this and have a blessed and Godly day!

    • I totally agree to Ashley & am here to witness the power of our Lord that delivers me out of this creepy happenings.I too have felt this strange attacks just like everyone has shared right from my college days that is from when I was 20,now I am 23.I can almost feel the dark thing grabbing my body parts, a touch that is very sinful.It almost made me lose all hope and frightened me to go to bed at all,until I shared this experience with an Internet friend,living miles away,who offered to help.She has experienced the same,and she had left her contact in a site similar to this,to help people.She asked to call out,”BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST” if I am experiencing this again,and she said the same SUnday whole of her Church youth group & Pastor prayed for me.I was really delivered and was able to fight back.I am a Christian(Indian).And from then on I cast away the black thread I was wearing around my wrist.As Ashley had rightly pointed out,I am subjected to this attacks only when I slip put of my Godly ways.I know it.for in these 3 years,whenever I go astray,like falling back to old sin or not being in God’s shield,immediately this happens.Yesterday was the most recent.I dreamt a good dream where I was talking to my friend(non-believer) who was sad,to believe in Christ to relieve her from her miseries.And I am climbing down stairs to find an apartment which turns out to be one of our neighbour’s and the song “AS A DEER PANTETH FOR THE WATER” playing loudly.People inside the house are praying in a group & I am singing the song too and walking.Just right after this dream,the usual attack happened(After a very very long time).I am so astounded for my experience to have striking similarity with what Ashley has said.Yesterday night I prayed Ps:23 while in bed.Today I went to Sunday serivce,and now my heart and mind is filled with JESUS just like always,and I know I can fight off every evil in His name.Just wanted to say if you are HIS child and your drifting away,these kinda things happen,until you’re back to HIM coz HE cannot offered to lose you.Just pray in kneeling position right before you sleep,and say by “THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST” to cast it off.Those who have defeated it kindly share your testimonies to others and deliver them,just like I was delivered.Amen.

    My mom owns her house and while living there strange things has happened to all of us and my boyfriend as well. One night I was sleeping and I wake up to see that I was getting pulled of the bed. I guess I was in shock because I didn’y say anything maybe seeing were this was going to take me. But realizing that I was getting closer of the bed I franticlly woke my boyfriend and told him what just happened. I told him to lie to me and tell me he did it, but I know he didn’t do it. That day I slept holding my knees making sure I was high in my bed as i could. I still hear footsteps and someone walking around when everyone is sleeping. What I sometimes do that seems to work out is keep the tv on low but it dosent work out all the time so I just ignore it untill it scares me again….

  5. So what is it ?????? What is going on. I get attacked in my sleep and it takes everything to get a scream out and when I finally let a scream out which scares me family I wake up I get pushed I see parts of a room clothing wit patters I can remember is I saw them again but really what is going on its scary

  6. Today the 30/01/2013 I went to bed at approx 1 am.
    I felt unusually relaxed and at peace/calm. I remember thinking that it was a great feeling but that it was extremely unusual for me to feel this way. Anyways i drifted of to sleep and i remember dreaming a chaotic dream.The dream was that there was someone trying to brake in to my house and that i was aware of this and preparing to confront the intruder.
    I then suddenly felt as though someone grabbed both of my feet with two hands . It felt as though it was a extremely hard grip and i remember thinking that this was not good or that whoever or whatever it was had very bad intent indeed. When i felt whatever it was grabbing both of my feet i was in what i would describe in a state of full awareness but i was still asleep.I remember that when it happened that i screamed but in a very high pitch and then a feeling of warmth and comfort started rising up in to my whole body but it started from my feet .This was especially scary as it felt bad / harmful and the feeling of warmth on top of that.Then i somehow forced myself to turn around and there was nobody there and i woke up but i did not feel myself what so ever. I felt very dazed and confused and even light headed .The scariest thing is that both of my feet are now hurting right where i felt that i was grabbed and it is now 15:17 and i am fully awake and aware . Also as this happened i felt extreme discomfort in the left side of my chest and i had palpitations and pain in my heart. In all honesty there was a stage where i thought that it was my time to go / That my life was at an end. Can anyone please explain as to why i feel pain in my feet now ? I checked my feet but there are no marks or signs at all. Overall i would say that this was the strangest most uncomfortable experience that i have ever had .P.S. .I had an out of body experience once when i was asleep. And i have seen a black shadow kreeping towards me once that felt very evil indeed in the middle of the day but i never had this experience before. The fact that my feet now ache really does concern me.

  7. I had this happen to me here about a month ago …. I was sound asleep and all of a sudden i could see everything around me…. My infant son and fiancé were sleeping inches not a foot away…. And i could ot move a muscle and no matter how hard i tried to tell my muscles to move it would not happen…. So i started to pray in my mind and tried to get screams out frantically as it seemed. After about 6 attempts at screaming my voice slowly started to come back to me and my cries for help came out very very weak and almost childlike… I am a 28 year old male and my voice was surprisingly soft almost like i was being choked but without being choked if you know what i mean. Once my fiance heard me and she awoke i was instantly fine but VERY scared. I went outside to smoke a cigarette and came back in and very hesitantly went to sleep again. I NOW PRAY EVERY SINGLE NIGHT BEFORE BED. I thank god for the day for my life and my family and ask that any stray spirits be taken to there final resting place where they can be at peace.

  8. ok so this had happened to me before when I was younger.. I’m in the kardecian spiritual religion. we read about this all the time. what happens is that we are all psychics in one level, it all depends on how you
    manifest it. the feeling of spiritual beings around you is right. we are always surrounded by spirits. when you have a greater psychic ability the “weaker” spirits are gonna try to get to you first. what needs to be done is go to a spiritual center where you will be able to open up yourself for spirits and people that need your help. I recommend pick up a book called the book of mediums by Allan Kardec.

  9. I was trying to have a baby, unfortunately had a miscarriage. The doctor said to wait 3 months and try again and I did. I got pregnant right away, but I was bleeding for 5 months. That morning I went to the doctor he said I want you on total bed rest. That night I did not sleep with my husband. Our 7yr old son always slept between us even though he had his own room. He was a bad kicker in his sleep. I went to his room and slept out of fear that he might kick my stomach. I woke up in the night and got up to turn the heat up I was chilly. I climbed back into bed in my sons room after laying down and closing my eyes I heard my husband and son talking in the other room. Just then I thought my 7 yr old son was coming down the hall way to where I was. I could tell that a small entity was at the door. So I tried to open my eyes to see my son. So I thought. I was laying on my side facing the door. My eyes would not and could not open, I immediately got scared and tried to speak. I could not move my legs. At this point i am trying to scream, and move with all my might. I literally felt a force of energy hit me in the chest and go right into my stomach. Right after it hit my stomach I broke free and kicked the wall so hard, and screaming bloody murder. My husband and son came running down the hall and said whats happening. All I could say is that a spirit got me! I said I am going with you guys I am not staying hear alone. This is really true I never bled another day after. And I had another healthy son. This small spirit at the door was a baby’s soul, or God healing me, or an alien. I don’t know. But I had a baby. It was a miracle. No more bleeding after that night.

  10. Yes this happens to me, it scares the shit out of me too. I layed down about 30 mins ago I was so tried from staying up late and working .. as soon as I get into a dosing off sleep I see blk figures jumping on me and attacking me.I’m paralyzed I tell myself to wake up I can’t…. I try to open my eyes I cant… I try to scream I can’t… I finally got up after the last atack I heard like dog growls at my neck I was being attack by a blk shadow figure had me pinned down… I’m up now very afraid to go to sleep. Help me please!!!!!!!!!
    !!!

  11. Oh my goodness. This has been happening to me and just like you it has absolutely terrified me. It happens in the early morning after my husband leaves for work. I hear and feel someone walking into my bedroom. The closer they get the more terrified I am. I feel something touch me. One time it was my face and last time my wrist and shoulder. I scream no, no, no but no words come out. When I finally can open my eyes I am shaking. Then I have a very difficult time sleeping in the nights to follow. Now, I get up when my husband leaves because I am so scared. I am 47 years old, a professional, normal, open-minded woman. This is making me feel crazy!

  12. Something similar has happened to me. They will go away if you use Jesus’ name to rebuke them. (there were times I could t speak either, so calling on God in my head worked for me too) Don’t be afraid because the space that they were taking, or trying to take in your life, God will fill. It took me a long time to accept, and I am just starting to understand that they can’t actually hurt me because God is actually way more powerful than them.

  13. This happened to me and another person on the same night and neither of us knew the other experianced it. My friend wad living with me but wasn’t borne again yet. I was a new Christian about 20 yrs old , 28 now, and I had been deperately trying to give him the good news of jesus christ paying our sin debt etc. (Just read the new king james bible ppl, start with the gospel of john and acts) as his life was filled with strife and destruction. His mom overdosed, family broken, he was on drugs, lost, depressed, etc. Anyway he’s saved now. I don’t experiance this anymore. Happened 3 times. Its a demon. You will be attacked when you’re weakest. You’ll likely be sleeping and wake up to the feeling of a presence but nobody is there.you can’t even bump you’re spouseto wake her you can’t move.you might not be able to open your eyes and may see red even in a dark room. You feel like it wants to kill you but it can’t. Pray to God, give your life to jesus. He’ll take it from there. Read the bible and use its knowledge to protect yourself. Its called the armor of God because this is a spiritual war. Don’t listen to this advice about psychic groups and new age religion.its bs.just another angle satan uses to attack you. Satan controls this world and will sift you like wheat. Know the truth and be still and know that God is in ultimate control. Give your life to jesus and your name will not be stricken from the book of life.

  14. happen to me before. best way to fight it is not always sleep flat on your back or stomach. because you wont be able to move while its happening. sleep side ways helps me and when this happen i started punching that thing and end up waking up while throwing punches…lol but yeah its not cool at all so make sure to always be ready because this happen to me alot before and i got mad at it cause i couldnt sleep so start fighting back guys!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Not sure what this means!
    This weekend we stayed in the Premier Inn in Barry, UK. My son woke to see a black figure, no eyes, staring at him. He was scared but was able to go back to sleep. He woke again later the same night to see the same black figure lying on me. I woke and witnessed my son staring at me, I was unaware of any ghosts but did feel creeped out, not sure why. My son said as soon as I said his name the figure disappeared. What does this mean?

  16. Hi guys this shit happend to me as we’ll I’m a victim too, I don’t thing is to do with religion I’m Hindu but I don’t go temple that often unless any occation but thus happen
    I was sleeping facing down on my bed around midnight I felt like I been lifted up my complete body getting lifted
    I try to shak my hand and legs tying to open my eyes but nothing happens but I kept trying after few second
    I fall back on my bed and this is not any medical issue k checked this on NHS website they where saying some people gets it once a life as is normal
    But if its was dream then how I felt when I drop back in to my bed?
    I didn’t say to any one if I say so I don’t thing any one will believe me
    So what’s all this about?

  17. My name is Tyler Self. I’m 13 years old and I think I had one. I know you think I’m bullshitting and wanting attention. But please listen. My dad and my two brothers have been having experiences. Mine was pretty strange. I was half asleep and that’s when I started to hear like a static noise. I kinda got an image in my head like I was just in the shower. But I still heard my TV the image went away but couldn’t open my eyes whenever I tried to shout but my throat rumbled and nothing happened. I tried moving my head but couldn’t move it a budge. But the really really strange thing was that I could sorta move my arms so I kept doing that I tried telling it to go away and that its not welcome. I was scared and I had a feeling it was making it worse. But at one point I sunk deeper and deeper into my bed. But I told myself that I wasn’t giving up. I was asking god but it took a few minutes. I could partially open my eyes and that’s when I saw something even more odd. Their was like a black dot on my left hand right where they say the devils symbol is. At this point I was even more scared and I tried asking god for forgiveness and told him sorry for what I have done wrong over my lifetime. The force stopped and I directly sat up and talked to my dad. He gave me a short prayer to recite I did it a few times and I got my grandfathers cross that came from his coffin out. I now stand here searching for gods forgiveness and love.

  18. You guys need to stop panicking.see i dont have any faith in god.i felt that too.i always used to sleep at 3.00 am in the morning.i felt more times that someones pushing me into bed i coudnt talk.Be always happy all the time.infact i saw the image of ghost.nowadays if i feel something like tht i used to wake up and drink some water and laugh back.watch some serials.If u feel that again start fighting manup.There is noone in the world can stop u.good day all

    • I will somewhat agree with you because fear is what feeds the things but on another note the more stronger you get the more worse your experiences get. That’s why you need faith in god its the only way.

  19. 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 demonic experience. Be blessed everyone!

  20. 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 and demons and depending on the surroundings and description of attack you can figure out roughly what is attacking you. I wont say anything in detail because believe it or not ignorance will protect you the more scientific or logical minded you are the more protection you have the more you believe in ghosts and spirits the more open to attack you are.
    i will let you guys know of some basic protection
    1. the room your being attacked in clean it – dirty rooms especially containing feaces of rats attract the supernatural
    2.you yourself should be clean the more clean you are the more protection you have.
    3.keep some type of holy scripture from your religion in the room but make sure its not on the floor that can cause the opposite effect
    4. the room that has the problem should be kept social with lots of people in it example have friends over hang out in that room talk a lot the more quieter a room is kept the easier it is for something to dwell there
    thats some basic pre-emptive protection. If you do all that and something still bothers you it means it can be attached to you or the dwelling and that takes a higher level of action to sort out.

  21. Last nite was my first and hopefully last. I was sleeping but was awoken by the sounds of chains cranking, rolling as if to lower something….I thot I woke up and looked doWn and saw a hand on my arm….I was sleeping with my 6 year old so I thot it was her. Then I looked to my other arm and I saw another hand. I tried to move my arms but the hands were holding my arms down. I tried telling my it’s just a dream. The chains started cranking again altho this time it felt as tho my bed was tipping backwaRds slowly as the chains cranked. I would try to wake up it would stop but then it wud continue and I kept tipping backwaRds. And I knew I was goin somewhere dark, scary…I opened my eyes. I cuddnt move my arms, all I cud think of was call my husband….my lips were sealed shut. I cuddnt scream. I tried saying my husbands name…I kept goin backwards. Then I kept making noise what I cud to try to scream and finally it stopped. I was lying in the normal position again…all I did was make sure my daughter was ok. And I believe I prayed to God to protect me and my room looked normal again. Not so dark, blacK…I’m still scared today. And terrified to sleep tonite. I know almost evryone seen dark shadows….is it safe to say this is not the same thing. Altho I can’t explain it…it just was NOT my typical scary dream. My chest feels so heavy and can’t breathe today. Severe anxiety setting in now….

  22. I had a similar situation happen to me just last night. It started with a dream I was having, in my dream I got into a physical fight with a friend which caused my body to start moving. 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 felt something pushing me back into my bed. It was a quick pushing between me and whatever this thing was. I shut my eyes real quick and as soon as I opened the center turned into a white blur. I brought one of my dogs into the room to sleep with after it happen. They say dogs can sense spirits so at least ill get a heads up if this thing returns.. Just wanted to share my experience

  23. 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 have to fight and struggle to move…theres a breaking point wher i put enough effort and im free, i even tested the phenom and let it take over me (bad idea) thats when i would feel a shock going deep into me, maybe my soul. well those have no solid direction as to the cause or rational reasons but last night i was sleeping and my brother snuck into my room 1:30 am and just off his presence i woke up! he was watching my tv and after a bit i told him to leave because i couldnt sleep with him in the room. it then got hot in my room so i opened my window and turned a fan on the slept on my back perpendicular to the bed with no sheet on and my hands behind my head..i woke up paralyzed of course but for the first time i actually saw a shadow of a being right over my face like it was about to kiss me, i didnt have strength to focus my eyes, out of my periphial vision i could see its body going down to the floor…it was a shadow with the false presence of my brother with no eyes, mouth, ears, nose or facial definition BUT! i heatd it breathing. any way after i found strength to move it simply vanished.. i then got under the cover terrified and my mother walked into the room to see if i was going to work….i gave her a hug and told her the story…this just happened LAST NIGHT and its the only reason im on here posting this because i saw with my eyes and felt the false brotherly presence from another being!! i think these beings steal energy or take something from you other wise there would be no reason for it to occur multiple times…theyre takin something from you or trying to do something….I WANT AN ANSWER…I KNOW WE WHERE ALL BORN INTO THIS WORLD WITH NO MANUAL GUIDE LINE OR ANYTHING BUT PEOPLE ARE SMART AND I KNOW THERES SOME ONE THAT CAN REAALLLLY EXPLAIN WHATS GOIN ON THANKS

  24. 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 if it’s trying to communicate with me. then do so in a less frighten manor. after i did that i had to turn on some source of light. went down stairs came back up turned on all the lights in my room. felt as if it has left me alone….for now.

    • I woke up around 10am one morning to this feeling of something pushing down on my chest. It was hard to breathe, when I could finally sit up there was a really loud bang on the bedroom door. It sounded like someone punched the door it was so loud. I jumped out of bed and opened the door to find that the house was empty, everyone was at work. Then later that day I went into work, my boss lives 2 houses down from me. Her son came into the store and he looked really nervous and afraid. I overheard their conversation, and he explained to her exactly what had happened to me that morning, even the pound on the door after he could get up. I never spoke a word to what happened that morning to anyone so there is no way he heard about what happened to me. He began getting really upset when my boss kind of laughed it off. That’s when I finally had to tell her the same exact thing happened to me that morning. Ive never been so freaked out in my life, it still gives me chills to this day. I researched sleep paralysis but that doesn’t explain the bang on the door, or how he had the same exact experience with no knowledge of mine. He even had the bang on his door. I dont understand this…

  25. 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 the point now where instead of being frighten about it im just curious.

  26. 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 or steal something from within me! After fighting to move and shout which was a total failure as it had control over me I managed to let out one chocked word MUM!! Who was in the next room, it was barely a whimper but once I said it I was released but so drained even with the terror I blanked out!! When I woke I felt normal but scared. I have also had a voice shout at me, the voice came from behind as if there was a speaker right behind my ear, it was loud and it echoed! It warned me to stop!! Stop what I do not know?? I have become very sensitive, I have dreams with warnings, they come true!!! I can be somewhere and tell if something bad is going to happen in that place, I can be drawn to the exact spot and know what’s going to happen but not to who or why?? I need some help or guidance fast!! I can be found on Facebook or twitter my name is James bray I’m a MMA fighter now, I do this so to try and block out what’s going on, I can’t say that its helping as being exhausted frm the training sometimes gives me peace but also leaves me frustrated and angry which isn’t good. Someone must know what’s going on and can help!! My email address is **@live.co.uk and my fone number is ** I live in the UK

    • 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 ,,,..meaning that you are more powerful than there especially if you use the name of Jesus.
      4. If you can’t do this by yourself..go to a spiritual church …Pentecostal church…ask them to give you a pastor to come an anoint your room or house. The being will disappear.
      5. These demons loom around looking for a house to live in..don’t allow them to make it yours. Again there scared of you that is why they attack you when you are sleeping…you are more powerful than them.
      ONE IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW IS THAT YOU ARE OKAY. NOTHING CAN HARM YOU UNLESS YOU ALLOW IT. THESE BEINGS ARE AFRAID OF YOU…SO DON’T GIVE THEM POWER BECAUSE THERE POWERLESS.
      IF YOU WANT ME TO PRAY WITH YOU LET ME KNOW AND I WILL CALL YOU.

    • Yes pray if it will help but I have tried myself and it is not working for me, its tearing my life apart now,, its becoming more dangerous and stronger as I feel its attacking most aspects of my life. I consider myself a strong open minded person but how much more I can take I’m not sure. Somebody must have a sincer answear to all that I’m being subject to, please help!

  27. 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’m not sure if I apply to this, but on July 5th at 3:00 am I had went to sleep. So I woke back up around 10 o’clock am then, I went back to sleep and woke up at around 1:00 pm. I was waiting for my dad to get my phone because he was going to be the Dj for a party. I was so sleepy I had took a short nap. Last thing I remember was me looking at the wall and I fell asleep. So I saw something black (Note: it wasn’t a figure) but it was coming towards me and it hit me and I jumped up out my sleep as if it still felt as i was still hit but okay. A couple of months ago I was actually researching about stuff like this. So can anyone tell me something so i’ll know whats going on?

    • Yes I have been trying to help a lady on my friends on fb . Parked at Epping forest in the day time that was the most shocking thing I was asleep I got hit like as if with a pillow it was nocking my head back to the head rest but also a like hun shot sound like a bang that woke me up with the impact . Awake there was nothing calm I fell back to sleep again bang and impact awake again calm this happened 5 /6 times then stoped then I was asleep awake I don’t know I was like spinning round and if I tried to jump I couldn’t get off like a round about this whent on for what seemed like forever like I was stuck I awake finely in shock some one was close to the van I wonder did he stop it some how , did he make it happen some how ? .
      I also experienced the dark shadow above me when I woke up the room was pitch black but this thing was blacker than the darkness if that makes sense . I just moved back to same house and the spinning thing happened last night

  29. Exactly what happend to me last night it has never happend before it is literally the scariest thing that has happend to me! I am not scared of it but i would like to know why it happend .. i dont believe it was sleep paralysis ..

    • Oh my exactly what happened to me too and I dont think it”s a sleeping paralysis as Ive experienced SP its not that bad as the evil presence.Ive been pulled down, choked and this spirit evensat on my stomach and chest and bounce on them even pullong my tongue out. I was quite awake and tried open my eyes but couldent. I even tried to yell at my cousin who just slept on the next bad but couldnt. So i thought to save all my energy and pray to God to cast the evil spirit away. and it did, I jumped up and could feel and see sorta like a blow of air went outside through my window. I sorta like seeing the evil spirit as a lady dressed in red but couldnt figure out her face.

  30. 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.

  31. I have sleep paralisis and in 12 the guy behind this is a good guy all he does is make me paralyze me and rapidly moves my pellow 3 times a night I don’t think it is ed the good guy that dyed ithink it is someone else that died here I need serious help any one??? 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

  32. 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.

  33. 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

  34. 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!

  35. 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.

    • it happens to me too my name is Xavier and im 14 years old im using my sisters laptop I was searching if other people have this not just me ad I do the same as your daughter I lay upside down because the first time its always the worst I was attacked by a bad force and it wouldn’t let me open my eyes nor move a muscle the other times it was even worst it sent you bad vibes and it mumbled something bad to you that just made its presence bad and one time I actually opened my eyes to it its like a black mob of smoke standing next to you with red eyes and its attacking you not physically yet but mentally and each time it gets stronger its like it wants you to talk to it or do something to it but if you don’t do what it wants it tortures you mentally not physically it sends like waves of fear towards that makes you scare it started happening 4 years ago and I remember it all since the first time now it happens regularly but I keep my eyes closed im to scared to face it and that’s why I lay upside down because some reason it like shields you or something I told my sister but she thinks im crazy

      • That why u don’t want to tell any one it make it Hard this one want to make me go to bed at the same time Eatch night if not it Will keep bothering me and messing with eyes

  36. 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’ve been experience these things for many years, I’d say it started in about 10th grade for me, I’m 51 now, I’ve been thrown around but never really hurt to bad, I’ve had it happen at work,home wide awake. Stay strong, don’t let it bother you, I think it’s witchcraft more than anything else and the sub human people will pay, so many babies born in such horrible conditions anymore,doesn’t make me wonder why, your Hindu friend.
