ive experienced sleep paralysis for the first time in my 31 year life twice in a one week period and both times were sleeping on my side towards the wall and it feels like an entity directly behind back. the second time it was sexually caressing my back and arms and energetically fondling my crotch area. i feel like it was leeching off my fear energy. what was more distressing was that it felt like a male entity. im a male, and i wanted no part in what was going on.

When I was about 7 years old I went to bed, and while lying there I saw a black entity that looked like the Grim Reaper come out of the wall, and hover bedside. Then out of it’s dark cloak a skeletal hand appeared, and wrapped it’s fingers around my throat - squeezing the life out of me. I was completely immobile, and could not cry for help for several seconds when all of a sudden, it released it’s grip...at which time my blood curdling scream woke my parents up. To this day I am thoroughly convinced that the devil knew I would eventually be saved and used of the Lord, so he dispatched a demon to snuff me out. Cry out to the Lord Jesus Christ if this should ever happen to you, and the demon will flee!

I get this often, almost once a week, sometimes every night. I wake up, and some elements of my dream still continue in front of me, I see spiders descending from my ceiling, people sitting on my bed, standing in my doorway, spiders with hundreds of legs crawling on my wall beside my head and other cool things. sometimes, it's not scary at all. I am no longer scared but know what to do. It sometimes takes me a few seconds to wake up and then I can move. Sometimes, the hallucinations don't go away until I get up and switch on the light. Every night is an adventure.

Demons are directly involved with sleep paralysis, as this is what is used for third eye visions and lucid dreaming. This is an altered state leaving your mind open to the fallen angels. Inventors in history used this to get ideas for inventions from entities. Et's are usually involved with altered states as well, bringing messages to abductees world wide that down talk the bible and preach new age third eye beliefs. The occult teachings our world leaders from around the world have always been involved with, this is why you have the all seeing eye of there god they trust, Lucifer, aka Satan on the back of the dollar bill. He is the one pulling the strings of the world leaders and he will be the one who will bring them together "NWO"/the great tribulation, to rage war against our creator. The pains of the earth has already started, gonna be the craziest next 5 years, prepare your hearts

O Holy Father, Physician of souls and bodies, Who didst send Thine Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who healeth every infirmity and delivereth from death: Do Thou heal Thy servant, N., of the bodily and spiritual infirmities which possess him (her), and enliven him (her) through the grace of Thy Christ: Through the prayers of our Most-holy Sovereign Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary; by the protection of the honorable and bodiless powers of Heaven; by the power of the precious and lifegiving Cross; through the honorable and glorious Prophet, Forerunner and Baptist John; of the holy, glorious and all-praised Apostles; of the holy, glorious and right-victorious martyrs; of our venerable and God-bearing Fathers; of the holy and unmercenary Physicians, Cosmas and Damian, Cyrus and John, Panteleimon and Hermalaeus, Sampson and Diomedes, Photius and Anicetus; of the holy and righteous Ancestors of God Joachim and Anna, and of all the Saints.

Sleep paralysis is terrible. You can't talk or move. It happens when I've had a nightmare sometimes. I get the crushing feeling and falling feeling. Since I was a little girl I had night terrors. Used to bedwet until I was like 9yrs old. The falling dreams became common around age 10.

I have experienced this phenomenon several times in my life. I can feel whatever it was coming at me from a distance. I guess I was making noise and woke my brother-in-law.  He said he heard me moaning and when he came into the room he said the fire in the fireplace was leaping out into the room. I said the Lords Prayer over and over. I have not had another episode since. It is true, we really do not know everything.

There is a difference between sleep paralysis and being held down I've had both. Sleep paralysis is less terrifying because it's far easier to break out of.
Graphik Dezigns (2 months ago)
As usual with science, this is nonsense. It's feels like a demon is molesting you, because a demon is molesting you. I was attacked on 5 different occasions by demons. Twice while being wide awake. They do not attempt to molest me. They tried to kill and terrify me. One tried to smother me, one tried to strangle me until I started convulsing, and one stepped on my throat. The other two times, they just tried to terrify me, by staring at me in my room and hunching on my shoulder. Every single time, EVERY SINGLE TIME, I called on the name of Jesus and they had to flee. The demon who smothered me was trying to stop me from saying it, by putting his hand over my mouth. When I got it out, I felt the Holy Spirit fall like a flood and run him out. That was one of the two times I was wide awake. These people have NO idea what they are talking about. It's Demons and calling on Jesus makes them flee.

Sleep paralysis is real and supernatural. Science has yet to make any logical sense out of it. I suffered sleep paralysis from age 13 to 17. I played with a ouija board and that same night I got sleep paralysis for the first night and suffered it every single night for 4 years. I went to a church to speak to a pastor and he prayed over me. He told me to invoke the name of Jesus when I get sleep paralysis. That same night I was attacked again. I cried out the name of Jesus in my mind because I couldn’t move my mouth to speak. It was like the Thanos snap of the fingers, I instantly woke up after crying out to Jesus and I never had another night of sleep paralysis again.

Shilra Viuxuz (3 months ago)
Human science can't explain everything. Sleep paralysis is strange, but I've learned how to deal with it. (I haven't woken up to it in a while, but I've felt it settling in as I try to sleep.. and when I have, I use willpower to make a jolt, and so my body wakes up again). It still feels scary, ominous, but I'm too angry to be scared with a mere paralysis. Paralysis is just being unable to move, not scary at all when I'm lying in my bed.

Want to avoid getting sleep paralysis? Your information was correct, an actual entity does hold you whilst you're in this state. So what I've discovered. If you sleep whilst facing your right hand side (body and face facing to the right hand side), you won't face sleep paralysis if you do this..

It is horrible, it is an insult for anyone to suggest that this dreams are based on fantasy or pleasurable . They are oppressive forced spiritual rapes accompanied by sleep paralysis. I wake up shivering regardless of the weather and I am sure there is a sinister spiritual element to it. I am a very healthy person, I don’t drink, I don’t use any drugs or medicine and the only thing that sometimes helps when I have this nightmare, is to hug my bible, as childlike as it may seems. The memory is very vivid and terrifying the next day .

Margaret Bardwell (23 days ago)
I say my husband's name (he sleeps in the same bed) to myself until I'm able to say it out loud and then I come out of it - usually first I am able to move my fingers, then my upper extremities, etc. Once you are awake enough to repeat a name or idea ("I will be able to move soon"; "I will be okay"), you're more than halfway out of the reverse-dream/sleep state that is causing the hallucinations. You could repeat the color "red" or the word "mousetrap" to yourself as well, for instance. The name of Jesus has nothing to do with what is occurring in the awakening process. Try it for yourself next time this happens to you, if you don't believe me.

I will copy remedy here: add light. Yes, there is some evidence that hearing from sleep paralysis (however you describe it) makes one more suspectible to it. This is why I don't tell friends about sleep paralysis. There is a normal way for me to wake up: I brighten environment. Whether lucid dreaming or sleep paralysis, I go out and make it bright day I tend to wake up. Or I can create (lucid dreaming) and use light switch. I've luckily had sleep paralysis only twice, first time when I finally woke really up (it was repeated; I even went to neighbour's and tried to use his lights since mine did not work-every time I clicked light switch, made a torch etc I found out I was back in bed just "waking up" again and again...) - finally woke up I was so tired and scared worst ever I couldn't sleep for more than thirty hours afterwards. Yes, shadow was keeping me in bed and I had trouble breathing before I again remembered it was sleep and changed it to lucid dreaming, only to wake up again... OUCH.

I have a bit of a weird sensation of sleep paralysis. I started trying to be the master of my own dreams a while back and it worked quiet good. I noticed that every time I invaded my subconciusness, everything around me made no sense at all. Distorted imagery and strange events. I only had very limited control over my body and the things I could manipulate. It felt like I had to releaen walking moving my arms an head I felt like a toddler. After a short while everything around me started to vibrate and shatter and my conciusness felt like I was about to die, I can't even describe what horror I felt. No movie could even come up with this and I don't exactly remember except that it was horrifying. I woke up after my consciousness got ripped to pieces, but I wasn't awake. I lay in my bed(I like it really dark when I sleep), I couldn't see one thing but I knew where I was, it felt like I was watching myself from above laying in the bed while some kind of vile creature slowly moved towards me bending over me and staring at me for a minute. I tried to get my eyes moving, my legs to move to no avail and then screemed in a voice that penetrated the very depths of me, "keep OUT!!!!!" and then everything started shaking again, I felt like being pulled back into my body and then I woke up for real. I was sweating like crazy and my heart pumped double as fast. The next night's I couldn't really sleep because I remembered every detail of the most horrofic dream I ever had. But after a while I got curious and found out that my subconciusness tried to get me out of its domain. I figured out how I could induce sleep paralysis and the only way for it to work was when I was determined to get my consciousness into play when I was dreaming. And the second condition was that it only works on short afternoon naps when I try to induce it(it works without any real prerequisites when I go to bed for real but I can't control when it happens) So I started to control always more, like a toddler learning to walk. At first I could walk, at second I could run and at last I could remove the black creature and drastically speed up the time it takes for me to wake up after paralysis. I can make sense of my surroundings now, I just had one of those dreams where I was on a plane with thousands of blocks, each with a set of numbers. There also was a Showmaster who told me that I need to figure those out in order to get my price. At first I was really shocked, who could even remember all those numbers and then it came to me that this is my subconciusness doing. After a while I got thrown out from this dream, it felt like always when I just wake up after a time but I managed to reenter before I woke up, just to see that everything was starting to break apart and at that point I got a real headache and I knew I had to wake up. So i managed to induce a "wake up sequence" but this time it got scarier. While there was no creature around, I was stuck in a wake up loop, I opened my eyes, felt like I have fallen asleep and woke up again and again and again. I wanted to sleep for one hour, I had a clock ringing but I slept 13 mins longer even tho the clock was ringing all the time. I woke up after I managed to move in the paralysis. This was a whole new level of sensation and I remember those numbers I saw perfectly.

I never get the crushing sensation or feeling that someone is in the room. What I do get is a terrifyingly loud sound that increases in volume and can last up to a few minutes. The way to describe it is sometimes like a hammer banging in an echoey room, and other times like a roaring sound. It can be quite terrifying. But I astral travel a lot and sometimes i lucid dream, so I have to go through this to be able to achieve astral projection or enter a lucid dream. Does anybody else get these terrifying sounds and is it possible to induce sleep paralysis without having to wait through this sound?
Jayla Seymour (9 months ago)
This happened to me once. I've been getting s.p since i was a toddler but this time i know it was a spirit. There was some negative thing in my house that lingered after a negative person moved out. I let him stay at first cuz he wasn't really doing anything but then things got creepy. When I'd trying to sleep at night, the bed would dip next to me as if someone was getting in or things would move on my dresser. So i decided to banish this motherfucker. So i did that and the same night, i got s.p but it felt like someone was fuckin caressing my lady bits! At first i thought it was a sex dream and i was like "cool" but then it started to burn. So i got up when it was over and slept in my living room. Luckily he hasn't bothered me since; im guessing it was a last throw at retaliation.
Gary Simmons (9 months ago)
I believe this is likely a very good scientific analysis of hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations. I had one as I awoke one morning: I felt immobilized, the dream imagery persisted into wakefulness, and I felt like I was vibrating very quickly; however, I did not have the experience of a presence or terror or of being violated sexually. I think this video conflates these hallucinations with sleep paralysis, which is an emotionally traumatizing phenomena--especially the recurring type. The video inferred that a rational mind set insulates the person from the trauma of these experiences. I wish that were true, but I know of no evidence for this assertion. For people with the recurring type there is some psychotherapy that might be helpful. Many cultures employ shaman or faith healers. For one woman in the documentary film "The Nightmare" saying the name "Jesus Christ" ended her recurrent sleep paralysis. She was the only person in the film who found relief. The film is interesting and disturbing. Dr. G

Had my first instance of sleep paralysis recently, didn't see a "demon" but I did see a non-existent big black bruise on my arm while feeling like I was being dragged out of my bed. Pretty sure it happened because I've been short on sleep lately and was trying to nap during the day (which I never do). It was kinda freaky but not traumatizing or w/e.

Yea I knew I was asleep but in the sleep paralysis episode the following happened; I was sitting on my bed and I went to lay down when suddenly I felt a malevolent force constrict me (like in the Star Wars Last Jedi movie between Snowk and Rey) and I tried to speak and could only hear a malevolent voice. I couldn’t move and I tried to yell out for help and I started praying because I didn’t know what else to do and eventually I woke up and everything was back to normal... it was very scary at the moment. It felt it last for about 5 minutes I would say

Dionne Daniels (1 year ago)
I feel physical pain, not just being raped but intense stomach contractions. Feels like I'm being severed in half! I've been stabbed between the ribs, it's horrible. The worst experience was when I felt something probing my intimate area, and it's hard to explain, but as I tried to move, my spirit self sat up. But I couldn't go any further than that, so I had to lie back down into my physical presence. I went into a lucid dream then, but I was aware the whole time that my body was still being molested. I can't believe how weird this sounds, but it's the truth. I believe in God, but I wasn't brought up to believe in demons/entities. I'm reconsidering now.

Back in 2007 when I was asleep I felt a presence in my bedroom walking and looking over me even pulling my blankets over me.

Her name was Cleopatra :'(
Bearcingetorix (1 year ago)
I'm not super religious, but I've had this a few times, you drop Jesus in, even if it's all you can do just to whisper his name and *boom* it stops. I'm still agnostic as it could be a remnant of being raised catholic and being taught that making the sign of the cross scatters demons. My grandmother drilled that into me on numerous occasions. Either way, it's a tool in the belt. I think our subconscious construct stitches our past experiences into an archetypal narrative from which it tries to make sense of a physical phenomena. Imagine being a monkey in a tree and waking up to find you are being constricted by a snake. Some reactions are simply nature, reinforced by millennia of genetic experience.

Zergoth Thrash (1 year ago)
This is an analytical view, but ultimately at the end he says that it's still unknown as to why they occur, or as to why the experience is overwhelmingly negative in presence. You can claim belief systems all you wish..But as a five year old I didn't really have any which is contradictory to his conjecture.
Val Gal (1 year ago)
I was 11 years old when i first had this experience,I called out to Jesus in my mind because i thought if i talked it would shut my mouth so i said it in my mind and it went away.The thing is that sleep paralysis is only scary if you want it to be it is one stage to astral projection.demons come because they take advantage of your ignorance of how to control your self they travel through the door to the physical realm while your mind /subconscious thoughts are dominant.Call out to Jesus in your mind when this happens it will work. the 2 different forces .

Sorry, but this is complete bullshit.

The more i try to relax and the less i struggle, the worse i get attacked. I have a very analytical mind, and there is absolutely no explanation for my mind creating any of these things i experience.

Robert went through that line quickly, but he says "fantasies, personal beliefs, and pop culture" -- and we'd add to that list fears, paranoias, and stories you've heard even in passing. So it's not just your fantasies, it's a whole lot of things your brain could be drawing from.

So this explains why thousands, maybe even millions of people see the "Old Hag"? I don't think so, your explanation doesn't wash. The scientific community needs to realize there is a spiritual realm and there are actually forces of good and evil. This is why all this happens, not because of some scientific reason. It's really simple actually.

I had this happen AGAIN last night. This one however, didn't make me feel afraid. I FELT and SAW my blanket being pulled off of me and felt a figure with gentle lips with soft skin harness itself on top of my back (I was sleeping on my stomach). Here is the crazy part of it all, I was on my stomach therefore I couldn't see the figure but that didn't matter. As i closes my eyes and it began to kiss me from my neck to my shoulders (Which tickled a lot!) the being made itself visible through a vision. I could see a large blue/black woman with a white Aura and long..really long flowing hair. I've read stories of people feeling dark and afraid of the creature but for me it was different...i felt 0% fear and while I couldn't speak I did hear slight moaning before finally waking up and rolling over. Once i did that, it was gone. All of this happened within a span of about 7 minutes. It felt like the entire night but when i woke up I checked my phone to find that I had only been asleep for about 10 minutes at the most..crazy but really really cool!!!!

"Science" lol. Sleep paralysis is demon(s) attacking u. Understand that these demons want your bodily fluids to keep u trapped in a cycle of lust. Mainstream science is fake bullshit disgusting propaganda lies. Anything to deny Jesus Christ the truth way and light.

Jesus is the way the truth and the light , the fact that this goes away when we call unto his name should give you something to think about , he is the only God no other on his level

You say science has the "answer"! What total arrogance, science knows next to nothing in general and at its best it can only make a guess at something and when it realises eventually that guess was wrong - it makes another guess.
Science proves I shit and wipe my ass
