So I just googled "spiritual encounters, dark shadow figure, paralyzed feeling" and found this thread! My freakish encounter is very similar to the
ones posted here.
Let me start with the small first encounter. It happened around two months ago and it was very brief. I had just recently moved into a new apartment,
getting used to the place, taking a while to fall asleep. I fell asleep...then around 2 or 3am, woke up in a choking sensation, I was wide awake,
somehow I was sideways on my bed ...like I had moved clockwise in my 2 hours of sleep...? When I tried to positon myself normal, back onto my pillow,
I realized I couldnt! I was pretty much paralyzed and was trying with all my might to move back. It wasn't just a paralyzing feeling though I felt
presense there with me like SOMETHING was there holding me in place. Whether I was sleeping or not..which I'm pretty sure I wasnt, my body felt
strained from forcing myself...So that freaked me out and I thought and hoped that would be the only time something like that would happen in my new
Second encounter...about 3 weeks later: THE BIG "what the heck"... I woke up middle of the night again and just lay there relaxing until I would
fall asleep again. With my eyes STILL open, so definitely NOT asleep, there was a shadowy figure to my left practically lying next to me...I felt one
of it's arms or whatever pressing on me and as I was trying to push it away, again I felt paralyzed, I was trying so hard to scream to wake one of my
roomates, but only tiny shreaks came out. The dark figure sat up, still beside me and I'm not sure if it was hooded like the ones described here, but
it had more of head with sharp triangular points atop. After moments of trying to scream and push it away from me, it vanished...? If after this
moment I had opened my eyes (indicating a nightmare) I wouldnt be shaken so much..but nope my eyes were open the whole time. It took me 3 hours after
this to fall asleep since I was so mortified...the next few days I slept with one of my roomates...
