sleep paralysis or demonic presence?





About 35 minutes ago I was sleeping, and suddenly I felt paralyzed and I tried to find something good to dream about but nothing would get in my head not even for 1 second. And I remember hearing growls, and my cousin was sleeping right next to me and I heard an abnormal snore right in my ear, but she doesn’t snore and it just kept getting louder and louder. I also saw in my head like a little thing with horns. While I was experiencing all of this I tried to make sounds i heard myself once I grunted, but nothing helped so i just prayed and it felt like it wasn’t going to stop, but I didn’t give up in the end it payed off and I was awake.
I did some research and it happens when you wake up but it happened to me while I was sleeping.
And this has happened to my cousin, me and her ex-boyfriend before.
One time me and her experienced the same night.
This has happened before but its never been this bad.


  1. It happens ….. different parts of your body wake up at different times, is all. Exactly what you’d expect from a system that evolved to be just good enough to work well enough often enough, as opposed to having been deliberately designed.

  2. “I did some research and it happens when you wake up but it happened to me while I was sleeping.”
    If it happens in a waking state (although technically it’s in one of those ill-defined in-between states), we call it sleep paralysis.
    If it happens while sleeping, that’s what we call a dream.

  3. It actually sounds like classic sleep paralysis, minus the part where you and your cousin heard it at the same time, but before jumping to conclusions you should always look for more plausible explanations. By chance do you sleep on your back? Because that’s the position that’s most likely to cause the condition. Try switching to sleeping on your side. If that doesn’t fix it, then I’d recommend calling an exterminator. If that fails too, break out the holy water.

  4. Channel, if you look anything like your avatar photo, I would be proud to claim that it was I, but it wasn’t; I’m an honest demon, I don’t snore, and my “little thing” doesn’t have horns! ;p
    I would opt for some form of “Sleep Paralysis”, as you said. IF it was a “demon” and a little prayer routed it, I would say you have the right idea.
    Sweet Dreams, Channel! (Oh, my bad, I mean Kinnesa! I cheated/checked!)

  5. It might be that a dark energy is dwelling in your sleeping quarters. Sure sounds like it, but you’re right, it is sleep paralysis that you described. It could have been a nightmare though, too.

  6. Hi! This is common.
    “Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, you may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking. Sleep paralysis may accompany other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is an overpowering need to sleep caused by a problem with the brain’s ability to regulate sleep…
    As you fall asleep, your body slowly relaxes. Usually you become less aware, so you do not notice the change. However, if you remain or become aware while falling asleep, you may notice that you cannot move or speak.
    What Happens With Hypnopompic Sleep Paralysis?
    During sleep, your body alternates between REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-rapid eye movement) sleep. One cycle of REM and NREM sleep lasts about 90 minutes. NREM sleep occurs first and takes up to 75% of your overall sleep time. During NREM sleep, your body relaxes and restores itself. At the end of NREM, your sleep shifts to REM. Your eyes move quickly and dreams occur, but the rest of your body remains very relaxed. Your muscles are “turned off” during REM sleep. If you become aware before the REM cycle has finished, you may notice that you cannot move or speak.” – Web MD
    Often, if a person tries to compare what the room appears to be and what the room looks like while you are in this state, he or she can determine that it is indeed a dream. For instance, if you see a shelf with certain items on it that you do not have or do not even have a shelf, but are aware of this while under the dream paralysis, one can be convinced that it is a dream. If this happens again, which it may since it is common, you should try some of the tips at the URL I provided below. I hope that this helps! I’m sure others can help, as well.
    “In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
    For you yourself alone, O Jehovah, make me dwell in security.” – Ps 4:8

  7. Sleep paralysis combined with that scary dark thing that’s going to get you. The scream that won’t get out. It happens to me sometimes, it sounds like a scary sleep paralysis experience. It can be so terrifying that I thought if I don’t fight back I would die. I have learned that the best thing to do is relax back in to your sleep and you will wake up normally minutes later. Easier said than done, but it works.I have been dealing with sleep paralysis for 20 years, along with the audio, and the odd scary images. Terrifying – and I mean terrifying – but harmless. Fighting won’t work, relaxing back into your sleep will.

  8. Its happen to me, just tell your cousin to slap you hard and you will snap out of it next time. no worries I’ve felt it to. If you can make it through the night there will be a brighter day.
