Excellent post.


As I was saying when I was in high school my girlfriends and I played with a Ouija board constantly. There was a spirit that would visit us (I don't even want to say his name!) every time we were on it. I prayed EVERY time we had it out. Funny thing was if my hands were on the planchette he wouldn't "talk".

Finally they asked why he wouldn't talk when I had my hands on the planchette. Guess what he said; negative energy. I'm pretty sure my guardian angels would push him away when I tried to interact.

After a period of time I started seeing shadow people, things would come up missing and, I started getting "night terrors" EVERY time I slept. I threw out all of my crystals, put up crosses and begged God's forgiveness. It took a lot of praying and rebuking of this evil spirit to get my normal life back. You may think I'm crazy but I know what I went through. A ouija board opens a door with evil behind it - it's hard to close once it's opened!!!

It could be your smoke detector. They send out a flash periodically. Its so quick though that you need to be really paying attention. Mine is in the hallway outside my bedroom door, and when the door is open and the lights are off, it lights up the room for maybe a tenth of a second every so many minutes.

OP please listen to me,

As a previous night terror victim i have to agree with both the sleep paralysis view as well as the visitation. As far as being cured of the night terrors, i was taken home from a restaurant one night as i felt the waves of discomfort being to take me. once i was home i was alone and felt safe to confront this terror, i went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror i tried to see the terror in my eyes as best i could, i stared myself down literally, then once i had it i screamed "leave me the F alone" and fell to the ground crying and saying this again and again, it finally eneded after 3 years of terrors based on this one night.

Remember as you grow older to try new things new approaches to solve this mystery with yourself.

People who go through night terrors or visitation have an upperhand on taking lifes other mysteries more seriously in my opinion, dont be surprised if you delve into mediation, astral projection,eastern religion, etc. The terrors and paralysis opened up a deep space within that i filled with these topics and it truely helpped.

As far as it being a visitation, my suggestion is to understand the common themes in visitation. IF you are being visited then its quite possible that the ETs understand your night terrors/paralysis and assume it to be a good opportunity to take advantage of your state, without being caught, hence the surprise when they see you open your eyes.

The fact that they hold you down could easily be a helpping hand to you and is not a gesture to try and SCARE you, if ET's are capable of seeing the ethral body (which im more than positive they can) then they could be trying to "hold down the terror/fear" that your etheral body or perhaps your aura are eminating.

TRY AND FIND A POSITIVE IN THERE VISITATION.

Lastly is the great feeling of doom you most likely feel as the sun hides behind the horizon, you feel like "how bad will it be tonight"...which reminded me of death a lot of the time, cause i really just would have rather died there in my bed...THiS doom should strengthen you naturally, dont rush it, so one day (like my stare down story in the bathroom) you may just have an obsurd amount of courage to face the feelings within..

KEEP in mind that you should develop your inner qualities before trying to find out exactly What or whom has the right answer on ATS.

I've suffered from sleep paralysis in the past. It truely feels very real and very terrifying, however do you insist it is not SP? (I've not read through the entire thread yet).

If it isn't SP, I would advise a trip to your doctor. It could be a form of epilepsy, or a neurological disorder (not psychological). The brain is a very complex thing and sometimes it can malfunction.

If you go and get checked over, and it happens to not be any of these things, I think then is the time to consider more paranormal explainations.

I don't think that is the case with me. We have a smoke alarm in our bedroom (where this has happened) the light on it is green. The flash I see is white.

this is different then the green led in it though. I think it has something to do with how it detects the actual smoke whereas the green LED is just telling you the thing is on. I mean, I don't know what kind of smoke detector you have, so who knows? I would check that first though.

Unfortunately some sleep disorders don't show up in a typical sleep study which is usually just one night. I'm narcoleptic and have had plenty of horrifying night time hallucinations in my life, but I had none in the one night I slept in a quiet hospital with electrodes all over my body. If the sleep study shows no signs of this that doesn't mean you're not having them at home.

Problems like cataplexy and hypnagogic hallucinations like this are pretty well understood by doctors who specialize in sleep disorders. They're more likely to help you than Ouiji boards.

I've had so many hypnagogic hallucinations that I don't even bother reading the many many reports of people "waking up" and seeing aliens in their bedroom. That would be fun compared to what I've experienced. If I woke up and saw aliens floating around my bedroom I'd think "Strange, normally I can't see two feet from my face without my glasses."

When I went through this I thought it was some kind of spirit attacking me.

However, my shamanic guide told me that it was more likely to be part of myself attacking myself. I had been through a really hard break up a few months earlier.

Take heed of all the replies here. My experiences may well not be relevant to yours, I just add this into the mix as to what I went through.

It scarred me like hell and I remember a real battle as the disembodied hands slowly crawled up my body and began to strangle me.

Well, it sounds like you're much more aware of what doctors can/can't detect than me. Maybe they would miss something, but my point was such avenues should be explored before jumping to the conclusion that it is paranormal. I think we agree? :s

If you read through this thread you'd swear that everyone and their mother has experienced sleep paralysis! Apparently it's so common 99% of ATSer's have had it!

Well I'm certainly glad I fit into that 1% that hasn't then. By the way I'm not at all convinced it's sleep paralysis but I'm not convinced it's not either. Why don't you tell us in depth some of the most vivid experiences you can recall OP?


If you think it is sleep paralysis you can try and see a doctor.

If you think it is demons you can call a church.

If you think it is aliens go to a certified hypnotist and videotape the session.


Keep us posted.

Hallucinations is the answer. I had these about 24 years ago when I was in the US Air Force. I had to do the research on the condition myself, otherwise I'd be labeled a nut case. It was weird because you would be conscious and could not move; I gave up fighting it and tried to control what I could in that state. It will go away.

I had this happen to me about 10 years ago. There was something dark like a shadow holding me down and laughing with a deep evil sounding laugh. All I could see were eyes.

I struggled scared for a second then all of a sudden I got real mad and started cussing at it and I broke free. I sat up and turned my light on and chain smoked a few cigarettes.

Maybe it was sleep paralysis or whatever, but it seemed as real as anything I've ever experienced. Your story gave me cold chills when I read it. It only happened that one time.

There are two types of doctors who mainly deal with sleep disorders, Neurologists and Pulmonologists. You want to find out if the doctor you plan to see is board certified in sleep disorder medicine, and if they are affiliated with a certified sleep lab.

On some nights the paralysis lasts for at least 10-20 minutes.

While it might seem like this is happening for a long period of time you may be surprised to find out that it most likely only lasts a few minutes in reality. Again peoples perceptions become very askew when they are dealing with this sort of thing.

While its true that we may not find actual paralysis in a single study, we can look for underlying causes that may make a person wake from REM sleep and induce Sleep Paralysis. With many issues, such as paralysis, where they only happen on occasion, the diagnosis is often based greatly on what is reported to the Doctor by the patient. Then we look for any possible underlying cause to that issue.

If you are having Narcolepsy, that is an entirely different test, and the test either positive or negative. Narcolepsy is something you either have or don’t have, it is not something that you will only occasionally have like Sleep Paralysis. If they only gave you an overnight sleep study for narcolepsy, then they either gave you the wrong test, or found something else that was an underlying cause such as apnea. A Multiple Sleep Latency Test is required for the diagnosis of Narcolepsy, and that encompasses both a night PSG and the following day to run the MSLT. REM Latency during the daytime portion of the test is the deciding factor in an MSLT.

It seems most of you are confidant that I’m experiencing common symptoms of SP. To make sure I am actually going through SP and not being visited by aliens, I’ve compiled a short list of experiences that I believe can not be related to SP. If you can relate these events to SP I might also lean towards it as well.

Last year while under paralysis somebody plucked something from my hair (maybe a piece of cotton that came from the pillow stuffing, who knows) soon after my toes were tickled until I became unparalysed.

Strangely enough I had at least five experiences where I’ve been tickled. On another occasion I was tickled on my leg to the point where I was compelled to restrain whoever’s hand it was tickling me. While restraining one hand another began tickling me.

There was a strange experience when under paralysis where I tried to talk to who ever was visiting me that night. With a wispy voice I said my name, repeating “my name is Andre, what is your name?” eventually I heard a response. The response was from a young women’s voice telling me her name (which I can’t remember – something like ‘Belalik’)

If this was sleep paralysis I’m not sure how one can explain how I was able to talk to some one if I was the only one there.

After she told me her name I told her “that’s a nice voice” and then tried to repeat her name, trying to sound it out, she then said “very good”. That’s all I can remember from that night.

One of the more unusual nights involved me finding physical evidence. What felt like a needle in my back was continuously inserted deeper, every moment the pain became worse until I violently shook my body freeing myself from the pain and the paralysing affect. I reached the area of my back that had just caused me so much discomfit where to my amazement I found what looked like a piece of string ….

Although it looked like some sort of string it wasn’t the same material. It was quite odd what ever it was. The string was about an inch deep, it occurred to me at the time that it was these visitors that inserted the string into my back – some kind of medical procedure? I then placed it on a table and went to the bathroom only to come back to find it missing. My only physical evidence gone forever!

During another night I felt the strangest feeling of a hand touching the fabric of my boxes. (Some nights I just slept in boxer shorts because of the summer heat) I don’t see how SP could account for this event, on the one night I wore boxes I dream up somebody touching them? And what’s stranger it’s always hands. Personally I suspect beings are doing something to me at night.

I welcome any explanations…

Anything that you are capable of dreaming you are capable of hallucinating in that state. That includes physical, auditory, and visual hallucinations. That includes hearing something talking to you, and responding to your questions.
Hope this helps:


Hypnagogia (also spelled hypnogogia) describes vivid dreamlike auditory, visual, or tactile sensations, which are often accompanied by sleep paralysis. Hypnagogia experiences are most commonly associated with the wakefulness-sleep transition state.

Experienced qualities vary, and include fear, awareness of a "presence," chest or back pressure, an inability to breathe (hence the folkloric notion of mara-like creatures tormenting sleepers) or an inability to move (paralysis), open the eyes, speak, cry out for help or scream or a falling/floating sensation or a feeling of tripping (as hypnic jerks or myclonic jerks are interpreted by the brain). Exploding head syndrome may also be experienced, or just an overwhelmingly loud sound, like an inexplicable buzzing or ringing sound. Other symptoms may include numb, heavy, tingling and/or electric sensations and vibrations as well as feeling something touching the body or ants crawling on the skin (formication).

Hypnogogic hallucinations are mostly experienced by those with narcolepsy although it is experienced occasionally by many others without the condition, for example, during periods of stress, sleep deprivation or drug withdrawal.

Hope this helps in your decision...

Well thats great to hear, although if you are being abducted or studied by another race of beings I wouldnt be surprised.

Sleep paralysis...? Maybe. I've had the experience numerous times and have never felt the symptoms that you describe.

Im usually stuck and unable to move, with some buzzing electrical sounds in my head, seeing (into the astral dimension) through eyelids, I do not sense a presence of any kind whilst in the paralysis... which is why I think it's strange that you experience the presence.

Also I can stop it by moving my fingers or toes (which takes abit of mental power)

You seem quite sure that it's an alien. So why haven' you set up a motion detection system with a webcam. ( edit to say I say the coment you made earlier about "just getting it set up" ) but that sounds fishy asw well)
Free software all over the net and someone's mentioned it before.
Why now after all the stories and threads you've started have you come out with this this?
sounds made up to me now actually.

Aliens seem to be the only logical answer to all of this. If worldwide abductions were all labelled as SP, I’d think quite differently about these events. The problem is Abductions come in very different but similar scenarios, some happen to children at night and some happen to adults while on the road. People are being abducted from their bed or from their car and experiencing the same thing….

When I read through countless abductions and then look back at my own experiences, they seem to mesh together. I have used a video camera to prove to myself these events are really happening, and every night I have tried nothing happens. In the same way I could keep a sidelight or radio on all night which does seem to keep these visits at bay.

At the moment I don’t mind the visits because at times they appear to be friendly. I would love to prove it all but I’m having no luck.

It honestly sounds as if the OP wants the experiences to be ET/ Astral entity related or whatever...not saying that it isn't but there is compelling evidence that these are sleep disorders/ hallucinations.

Just my thoughts
