Get naked as a jaybird.
Ghosts and spirits are uncomfortable with nudity

So a sulfur like smell or the smell of burning?

From all you've said it does sound a lot like a djinn or a minion of the devil. Other names exist.

Make a dreamcatcher, pay it no mind and if it continues to trouble you seek advice from people who'll know, like a preacher. You've said you'll do this so

The psychic?

Could be a good idea. Then again anyone can be a psychic, potentially could make things worse.

Some good advice on this thread, some not so much.

I note you aren't religious so the advice to seek out a Christian exorcism might seem a bit far out, but let me try and explain why you should, and what is probably going on.

First up this could be in your mind, we should always test everything. 1Th 5:21  but test everything; hold fast what is good. On balance, accepting the veracity of your account, I don't believe it is.

Sleep paralysis is a medically described condition where we experience a state of consciousness between a dream and the waking state. For obvious reasons the body is paralysed during our dreams, to prevent in normal circumstances acting out our dreams, sometimes this doesn't work, we get forms of sleep-disturbance, say kicking a ball in our sleep leads to a real kick - through to the drama that is sleep walking.
In Sleep paralysis we have waking consciousness but the body is still locked down. This experience can be triggered by electrical stimulus to the brain in the lab.

Where the science breaks down however is that explaining the mechanism - the why we can't move, doesn't adequately explain why it happens to people in specific locations.
Some people are sleep disturbed, and experience Sleep Paralysis as a matter of course, what is interesting is those who only experience it when they are in a specific place.

That said you describe a sequence of experiences with which I am very familiar. I grew up in an haunted house, for a short while, because as young boy the home was exorcised.

So I have family history that remembers how guests would describe similar experiences, unique form them, ie because they were staying over with us. One for example insisted there was a cat in the room, and they disliked cats. Another who was flait of birds insisted an owl or similar had got in.

In short clearly something was going on that was location specific, but interpreted though the consciousness of the observer in differing but related ways.

Let's deal with what a ghost is first, before we check out why some hauntings are benign yet others are not.

I believe a ghost/haunting in the primary state is akin to a recording, it is attached to the place, or sometimes an object, (I later worked in antiques) and that "recording" can play back, given the right person at the right time.
Play-back explains why anything can be a ghost. A ghost isn't a soul of the dead, because inanimate objects, such as clothes or a cart aren't alive, but can be ghostly, rather a ghost in this ways is an impression of that existence.
A classic example of the play back haunting is the ghosts of the Roman Soldiers seen by the Plumbers Apprentice Harry Martindale, they walked along the Roman Road as it was then, which in C20th was running in the cellar of Treasurer's House in York. In other words "ghosts" walk through walls, hover above the ground, or below it, because the wall was not there when the record was made, the ground level was different etc.
In short a Ghost doesn't care if the house was built yesterday or a thousand years ago, as a recording it simply is attached to the locale.

The aggressive haunting falls into one of two categories, something driven by the living, the poltergeist, or in the case of my childhood home, and I suspect your present home, the presence of a ghost-as-a-recording hijacked by demonic spirits.
Demons can be described as lower spirits, evil in the broadest sense of the word, not necessarily morally evil, but just driven by what approximates instinct. For example a fox gets into a hen house, and kills all the hens. An evil thing, but the fox is just being a fox.
With lower spirits the driving desire is to experience life, they want to possess life, and a "recording" of a life, a simple ghost, especially of a person, especially of a person made in an extremely emotionally charged moment, is an image of life, so kind of close enough.
Then they use the "vehicle" of the ghost as a means to reach up and out to the really alive, driven by that desire to possess life.

So an aggressive haunting manifests in the sleep paralysis experience, but amplifies it, so we get the more extreme physical sensations of the weight on the body, through to, again from personal family experience, hands around the throat trying to throttle you.

A common theme is however the overlay of personal cultural expectations, so we have phobia's personified as in my examples from my house of a bird and cat, or my own nightmare, among my first memories, of the winged monkey from the Wizard of Oz. Other times they were little green fairy folk, or today perhaps little grey men.
Each individual will bring varying degrees of interpretation to the experience.
The timing is usually KGB time, ie at or around the dawn, or just before, when the body biologically is at the lowest ebb.

A Christian Exorcism works on two levels, it expels the lower spirits, and places a "hedge of protection" at the location, simply turfing out the demonic entities isn't enough, the vacuum left invites their return, bluntly unless God fills that space then strong arming out spirits will make the situation worse not better.

Luk 11:24  “When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ 
Luk 11:25  And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. 
Luk 11:26  Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there. And the last state of that person is worse than the first.” 

Paradoxically the spirits worse than first are not necessarily as dumb as the first, so a "cleansed" house by human means will not necessarily be revisited with the same obvious and primitive instinctively driven phenomena, rather the more evil spirits will be collectively smarter, thus on the face of it, a Godless exorcism may then appear successful because the overt symptoms cease.

For this reason unless a person is willing to accept bringing God into their house, it's better to leave the house alone, than removing the current phenomena by exorcism.

Thank you for the reply. Macenroe82 and underworks suggested similar things in posts prior to yours. I don't want to try holy water at the present time as I am not religious.

a reply to: glend

Thanks glend I have a camera which is able to film and tripod. I will give this a try. Next time I feel the presence I will do as you say.

a reply to: ozb1777

Thanks for the reply. In answer to your questions I can say no to all of them. With regard to the Bible I am holding off on religion currently as I am not religious.

a reply to: AthlonSavage

Thank you for posting. Wow. I though I had trouble. It seems like you are rocking those entities at your place. When I said the pressure on my bed like someone sitting it was at the left side of me next to me knees. There was no actual pressure on me. What I do find interesting in your post is the electrical sensation. Last night I fell asleep very quickly after completing my protection visualisation. I was awoken suddenly and I checked the clock. It was 3:00am. The room felt oppressive and highly charged (charged is the nearest word I can describe it with, something with intent.

I ignored it and went into a light sleep. I woke up several times due to an electrical charge (buzzing) touching my skin. The first time I was lying on my left side and the buzzing was on my buttock. I quickly moved onto my back and fell asleep again. The buzzing woke me up again. This time it was my abdomen just below my navel. It was a lot stronger than a tingle. On both occasions I purposefully ignored it.

a reply to: BELIEVERpriest

Thanks for the reply. I take on board what you say. I am not religious and don't want to go down that route. Several American documentary tv series involve hauntings etc with the priest going in to bless the house and in some cases exorcism. If you believe and go to charge then its a perk you are entitled to. To ask for it as a non-believer just seems wrong in my book.

Sulphur as in gunpowder (not the rotten egg smell).

I had a patient give me a dream-catcher as a present many years ago. I will go rummaging.

It doesn't matter if you are religious or not to be able to use holy water, it only matters that it actually works regardless of your beliefs. Please keep it in mind because chances are you will need it. I wish you luck!

a reply to: RudeCherub

Thank you for taking the time to type such a long reply. I know for a fact it isn't sleep paralysis because I move as soon as I wake up. I have never felt like I couldn't move on becoming awake. It's called old hag syndrome according to what I read earlier today (I didn't specifically search for it). So you believe it is a demon taking over a memory imprint which resides in the space where my home is built. I agree with not involving religion and believe your reason to be as valid as mine. I also understand the cultural reasoning as well.

Whilst I was typing this reply something very dark shot across my vision approx 30cm (12"). The sun has just set and I haven't closed the blinds or put any lights on.

i think you need to tell more about yourself.

Within reason I am happy to give any information. In relation to my protective visualisation I visualise a small powerful bright light (yellow and white) in front of me. I make sure not to contaminate the light with my own thinking. The light explodes into an orb with me at its centre. I try to visualise strength in the light so nothing can pass through it.

a reply to: Morrad

I apologise for stirring things up a bit.

I appreciate your experiences are not classic sleep paralysis as in feeling awake but being unable to move, the latter part of the experience is common, but not always present.

I recall during my antiques work, I literally woke up to see a man beside my bed, and in my shock reached out to him, and fell out of bed into the figure,who fell away through the floor, which I thudded into.

Where I thought there was commonality was in the experience of feeling weight on the bed, and sensations of being touched as I recall. That with the dark shapes.
The "old hag" experience has some of these.

Not everybody will dress these things in a cultural apparel, if anything you are seeing, or at least processing this in a more real way, I suspect because of your mindset going in.

I use the term demon but advisedly, I don't want to imbue these entities with undue prestige, in fact it's wise not to feed the troll as it were, as it is possible to create ghosts, or at least feed the phenomena associated with them, (see a ghost called Phillip) so my apology at the start isn't tongue in cheek.

That engaging with me in this discussion might provoke a response? Really that doesn't surprise me.

Hi, what it seems like youre encountering is a Jinn or Jinns, and yes they are capable of a lot more. The things you mentioned are common characteristics for people who know about this field. For someone who isnt religious this may be a stretch for you to accept but essentially they are interdimensional sentient beings, they are fodbidden to interact woth humans although they have the capacity to do so, and when they do it is usually to do some mischief, frighten you, or lead you down a dark path. In islam we are told about their world in some detail and there are ways to exorcise them from your house, if you feel so inclined just google it or drop me a message. In the end dont worry about it too much, they are usually afraid of people as much as you of them.

I know it's cliche, but I would get someone reputable to cleanse the house. I don't think I'd sleep again...

do you do this only after the incident or always?

a reply to: Hr2burn

Not much you can do when you live there!

I had an apartment with extra bonus friends. Near the end of my stay there I started to experience being touched at night. I would think it was my cat, and then my cat would turn out to be in another room, or asleep by my feet or something. Someone touching my face, petting my hair.

And yet, I slept there. And I am still alive and in reasonable health. Remember none of these ghost friends can really hurt you, they just annoy you. They WANT you to be afraid because fear is delicious. Treat them like an annoying child or pet. Don't feed or encourage them. Spirits can mostly just annoy you, and like most bullies, if you ignore them and don't feed them it gets better. Do some cord cutting visualizations and send back any attachment energies hanging onto you as an addition to your glowing protective light. Just sort of scan and look for clingons.

No need to apologise. Thanks for your link on the Philip experiment. It was an interesting read and I get what you are saying. I thought I would be in for a long night awake after that dark thing shooting across me but I was wrong. I slept all night without waking.

a reply to: Kamza

Thanks for the reply. RAY1990 mentioned djinns. I will read up on them today.

a reply to: Hr2burn

I have put that on hold. My answers in this thread explain why. I find it irritating not frightening.

you said you were doing this always, before the incidents as well.within reason, it isnt anymore the case nothing can pass through. in the same way, lovingly invite into your bubble.sounds like you know the prosedure anyway. it should work out.
