I have experienced some of the same things all of you have described, and I'd like to share with you what I believe it is, and what I have done to
First, here is what I've been experiencing:
1) Bed shaking very lightly, top-to-bottom.
2) Scratching noises on the bed-frame.
3) I used to experience a heavy weight on my chest. But I haven't experienced this in a long time. When I was younger, I would go running to my
parents' room and scream about a monkey sitting on my chest. They also took me to the ER a couple of times because I had such bad chest pains when
I'd lay down to sleep (due to the feeling of a heavy weight). The doctors sent me home saying there was nothing wrong with me, both times.
4) Sleep paralysis.
5) Over the past few weeks, I have experienced, at least twice, an abnormal sensitivity to my own heart beat, much like was mentioned a few posts
above. Also, my nerves in my legs began jumping like crazy, as though they were trying to get out of my skin. I began to be convinced that all of this
non-sense and it is just my heart beat and nerves just shaking my body. But then common-sense came back into the picture and I realized that it would
be impossible for my heart-beat and/or nerves to rock my bed back and forth, make scratching noises on my bed frame, and even grab a hold of my
television set and squeeze it (which I hadn't mentioned yet) as though someone were picking it up off of my dresser.
My story, why I think this is happening, and my solution:
I was raised in the church, am now 26 years old, finally finishing my bachelor's degree in Youth Ministry. For my entire life I have experienced
these weird things, but like most of you, did not know what to attribute it to, so I did not pay much attention to it. Over this past summer it began
to get worse, and over the course of this semester (since August), it has become very, very bad.
I realized recently that throughout my life these things happen spuratically (spelling?). While thinking about this, I realized that they happen just
before pivotal moments in my life, such as times in my life where I am about to take a major turn, or a major decision that will change me for the
rest of my life. For example, I recently gave in to what I believe God has been calling me to, which is feeding, teaching, and loving orphans in
various parts of Africa, as well as other parts of the world, by starting my own non-profit organization. And lately these things have become so
severe that I cannot sleep at night, so I get most of my sleep during my classes... unfortunately.
My solution? Well, I went to church and talked to some elder's there. The church has an Anglo-Catholic background (that's basically a Catholic
church that holds Calvinist views, for those of you who are schooled in that area), and they do not take matters like this lightly. They prayed for
me, layed hands on me, and anointed me with oil. I am still following up with them.
I fully believe that these are demons. Whether you believe in demons or not, it cannot hurt to look into it. I would love to talk to you about this if
you're interested. I have personally been praying out-loud every night to cast them out. After I begin praying, the bed will shake even more
violently, but eventually, I will literally feel them flee, and in fact, I will feel my bed sit sturdier on the floor, making it feel as though,
before they left, they were taking much of the weight of my bed off of the floor. It is very odd.
Lastly, I have been told, by people that I do not know, that this is a generational curse, due to witchcraft from someone in my father's line. Not
sure how to respond.
Please add me on myspace and/or e-mail me to explore this with me. I'd even be interested in reading the same books with someone or a group.
