Good Morning ATS,
I hope everyone is in good health and in high spirits,i've been reading alot your stories and life experiences in here for alittle over a year now
and could'nt help but to join in recently and share some of my experiences.what i'm about to share with you has been discussed here many times
before but everyones opinions and beliefs are slighty diffrent at times.
so here's my story,experience and belief on what some of you call "sleep paralysis","old witch hag",etc..
I've been experiencing "sleep paralysis" since my early childhood from the age of 7 from what i can remember.as i got older,the stronger the
"sleep paralysis" became.at times i would experience it everynight for weeks even months and at times i would only get it once every other month but
till this day it has'nt stopped.a typical "sleep paralysis" for me is having the sensation of a mild to powerful presence nearby or even on me,
the presences i've felt have been from a mild negative one to the feeling of a demonic one which is very terrifying at times as some of you
know.there's big a diffrence if some of you know what i mean.
the feeling of being pushed into my bed"like a sinking feeling" or someone sitting on your chest, the loud buzzing, humming or popping sounds in
your ears, waking up and being completely paralyzed.what i've explained so far is a common "sleep paralysis" i've always experienced,from my early
childhood into my late teenage years i've always been terrified of having a "sleep paralysis attack" as i like to say.
by my late teenage years i started praying whenever i had one of these experience and the attacks would stop as soon i mentioned God,Jesus or Holy
Spirit.from there on i have gotten used to the attacks and had no fear of it any longer, i felt it couldnt harm me"in reality whatever it is it cant
harm you, just scare and torment you".
but there have been a handful of times when the "sleep paralysis attacks" went to far or out of control you can say.
i want to share my 2 worst attacks with you guys today,so i can get some feedback,opinions,your thoughts and maybe help some people understand from my
experiences.before i start i want to say i have read about people seeing shadowy figures,lights,i have'nt seen any of these while having a "sleep
paralysis" and i hope i dont *lol*.
My first horrible and powerful "sleep paralysis attack" happened in my late teens 18 or 19.
that dreadful night i had the typical syptoms of a "sleep paralysis attack" as i mentioned before,at that moment i wasnt scared.i started to pray
during the attack thinking it will stop or go away as usual,how wrong i was!!!as i started praying i felt the presence of something pure evil and
powerful,something i've never experienced before and dont know how to explain it exactly.all i knew was that it was'nt good and i was terrified,and
out of nowhere i heard a lady screaming into my ears in some weird language or tongues as some people say
my ears were hurting from whatever it was screaming at me,and she sounded pissed off.
i never felt so scared in my life till that moment,i continued to pray and it just would'nt go away so you can imagine how scared i was.the more i
prayed the louder and angrier she or it got.out of pure fear i was trying to do the sign of the cross on myself,as i felt a little strength to do
as i started doing the sign of the cross,i felt something had like a kung fu grip on my wrist like it didnt want me to proceed.i kept trying but
whatever it was,it was strong.then i felt the same kung fu grip on my left ankle and slowly dragging me off my bed,now i was really scared.
i continued to pray in my mind and nothing!!!"as some of you know for some reason u cant speak or scream having a "sleep paralysis attack"i tried
to scream for my brother and mother and nothing, all i was able to do was let a moan n whine out.at that point in my life,my mother and i shared the
same bedroom.i slept on the top part of a bunkbed.
whatever it was,it was dragging me off my bed,my mother told me she heard me moaning and woke up to check on me.she said she saw me sliding off my bed
as half my body was hanging out off the top bunk bed.
"what a coincidence huh" dont think so!!!!from what my mother told me she said i was wide awake and not moving with my eyes wide open moaning and
looking very pale.and i remember very clearly the worry look my mother had on her face and felt her shaking my body to snap me out of it.
a few seconds later,whatever what was holding me let go and the screaming in my ears stopped.i jumped off the bed and ran out the room.i explained to
my mother what had happened and she claims i was having a bad dream *lol* yeah ok,who has a nightmare when they are fully awake and with eyes wide
My second and scariest "sleep paralysis attack" happen in my mid 20's.
by this time i had my own bedroom thank god *lol*i must say this was the most powerful exprience i've had with "sleep paralysis".
this time as i way laying in bed alittle sleepy but not very much,but i was very aware of my surroundings in my room and for some reason i didnt feel
at ease at that moment.and out of no where i felt the most powerful and quickest"sleep paralysis attack" in my life,im talking about when it
happened i thought to myself this is it,i'm going to die.this time the terror and fear i felt was insane and the pure evil i felt was unreal.
i thought and still believe the devil himself got me.as all this is happening,again i heard a freagin voice right next to my ears but this time it was
mans deep voice speaking perfect english.all it kept saying was "I finally got you edited profanity ,i got you and i'm never going to let you
i felt the tears dripping down my face from crying and i didnt even bother to pray,all i said in my mind was,jesus help me,im scared dont leave me
alone and if it's my time to go please come and get me.
right there something happened that i dont even know how to explain.i never had an outter body experience an "OBE" as some of you call it and i dont
know if it was that,all i remember was seeing myself crucified on a cross and seeing someone next to me which seemed and felt like jesus christ.i felt
at peace and whatever had me let go n kept saying it'll come back.that whole night i didnt sleep but for the very first time in my life i really
felt at peace.
I'm 27 now and still get a "sleep paralysis attack" here n there but not as often.i've never felt one of those horrible attacks again *thank god*
only thing nowadays is,when im having a "sleep paralysis attack" i always snap out of it with my body shaking,trembling for some reaon.i've been to
my doctors and i'm perfectly healthy and very sane.
my opinion on "sleep paralysis" is that its some sort of negative or demonic possession trying to happen.i never heard of someone getting possessed
that way but you never know,all i know is on my behalf it's not a psychological problem and it's something the medical and scientific fields cant
really explain and prove a 100%.
i was raised as a catholic since a baby but as i've gotten older,i've become more spiritual and kind of strayed away from the catholic teachings
although i do believe "some" parts of the bible has the message from god but not all of it.i guess what im trying to say is,i dont think it matters
what religion you're in but as long you believe in the one and true god, and have faith in god and yourself,you're safe from these type of
well people i hope ya enjoyed my lil part and im sorry if i made some grammar errors or if by any chance dont understand what i'm trying to say but
please i would be glad if i could hear your thoughts on this if ya dont mind.
God Bless Everyone!
