I had a couple episodes with sleep paralysis starting in dreams. I would be dreaming and say to myself or someone else in my dream "here it comes" or "I feel it coming on". Then I get a vibration starting at my feet and rapidly make its way to my head.
Most of the time I can stop it by jerking my leg or arm before it takes total control of me. My wife even helps out by punching me in the arm when I start making strange noises in the night. She swears I'm possessed with something.

Funny you say that because a couple of nights ago I had a paralysis episode and it was on my bed but in a dream. I don't remember what I said.. I uttered a couple of words and I started vibrating and began lifting off my bed at some point. Then for some reason I thought about Robert Monroe's book "Journeys out of The Body", where he talks about how there was some kind of entity attached to his body.
Sooner or later I found myself trying to take out a head from my stomach. I began pulling out a head and then I became a bit frightened and held it in front of me. I couldn't believe it, it was a version of me, but with a few days of beard growth. It didn't feel like it was me though. I didn't understand the significance of the whole dream. I found myself asking someone in my next dream that night if he knew anything about the dream I had previously or if it meant something. Surprisingly he did give me some kind of answer but I don't recall it

SP is definitely not a sleeping disorder. I have had SP since I was a kid, I'm now 27. And those are not hallucinations.

Hell I'm so used to them now that I can force my eyes open and talk. They used to scar the crap out of me now I just either get pissed off and try to fight it or just let it happen.

One night I forced open my eyes and saw a dark figure standing over my bed it looked like the silhouette of a firefighter in full gear. I came across some info on the Internet and found that many, many people see the same thing with roughly the same description. How the hell do many people hallucinate the same damn thing?

Don't worry about it tho, Just try to stay calm and know that you will wake up lie normal. It's no biggy.

Last night passed off without incident thank goodness.

I'm still not sleeping soundly though, keep waking up during the night.

I agree, I too have trained myself open my eyes and sometimes attempt to remove myself from the bed. Most of the time though I collapse from the weight on my back. Sometimes it's such a struggle that I'm drenched in sweat from the struggle. I cannot stand being unable to speak though. I wish I could train myself to speak during the "attack" as you did.

Hey Peeps

I had an episode when I was 6yrs old, and I can still remember it clear as day, nearly 30 yrs later. I remember very little from this time, but I can remember the episode as if it were the other day.

I never told anybody about it up til now for obvious reasons - aww you had a bad dream etc. But reading about everyone's experience has made me feel comfortable to to tell you guys.

Basically I woke up in bed, totally paralysed with fear. I had the overwhelming feeling there was a vampire in the room and that I was being held against my will. I was terrified, this was no nightmare, of that I am positive. I could feel its breath on my neck, although it never took a bite. Soul vampire anyone?

I have had a few other episodes in my life since but nothing to rival the sheer terror of that night.

I had always dismissed it as SP and an overactive imagination but hearing about psychic vampires for the first time - that is the last thing I need!!

Taking some garlic to bed tonight methinks...

The other episodes I have had are seeing a young boy sitting at the end of my bed, glowing slightly, feeling and hearing someone clap their hands in front of my face, and the feeling someone is in the room with me. But nothing will ever compare to that night with the vampire.

I had a friend who had a similar experience to this while staying at my house. While I think that the sleep paralysis thing may be relevant in your case, this is a bit weirder.

My friend was woken in the middle of the night to find something had grabbed him around the chest and arms, which he said was "really cold". After a few minutes of being paralysed he was however able to push whatever it was off him, and it appeared to go through the wall to my brother's room.

The few days later my brother told me (before hearing my friend's story) that he had woken and seen a person who had passed away a few years previously in his room on the same night that my friend had his experience. That person told him to protect me from my friend.

I also had an apparation of a person's head and shoulders hovering over my door the next night - maybe watching over me. I wasn't sure who it was and didn't mention it to anyone.

I personally think that this incident - because all three of use had not corroborated on any of the details until a few days later - was a warning about the true nature of my friend and have not spoken to him since.

All you people are experiencing is sleep paralysis. Your body when it sleeps secretes chemicals that are meant to paralyze your body so you don't act out your dreams in your sleep. All sleep paralysis is, is you waking up before your body has had time to remove the chemical and because most people are prone to irrational fear, there mind develops a reason for you not being able to move so it creates a hallucination which, depending on your cultural beliefs could be a ghost, Pontianak, whitch, alien etc... I get sleep paralysis every so often but i have never seen anything, I know the facts so i keep calm until i regain control. really no big issue. Just be logical about it.

I could agree with the SP theory, except to say in my case I could feel this things hands groping me in certain places, and one of the places was shall we say delicate.

Does that happen with SP ?

I had almsot the exact same experience last month. I was on a business trip and staying in a hotel in Baltimore. My business partner and I shared a room and had lights-out at about 11pm. Sometime in the very early morning hours it felt like he had jumped onto me with his bed covers. It felt like a large adult and I couldn't firgure out WTF he was doing. Then I realized it was not him and tried to call out but I was muffled. After what seemed like several minutes I was able to 'free myself' and was awake. There was nothing amiss in the room. My bed covers were not particularly amiss and my partner was sound asleep in his bed.

I went back to sleep and within an hour or so the same thing happened again. A large 'entity' had thrown itself on top of me and I tried to call out. Once again I was able to bring the episode to an end. The next morning my business partner told me that he had heard me making noise like I was tryting to yell in my sleep but he said he thought I was just dreaming. Like the OP said, it was very real and very frightening.

I have a couple of OOBE's in my life.......and last week I had one that was the most shocking to me.....I should also state that I have very lucid dreams and I can control my dreams in any way I my dreams I am all-powerful and nothing can ever hurt me.....I can fly, I have super-human strength and I can change my dreams at will if I do not like how they are going.

that being said.......

I had gone to bed and after about 5-10min I started to fall asleep when all of a sudden I felt three *persons* or *beings* jump on me and start pummeling me like they were out for vengence and wanting to kill me.....and at the same time I had the unmistakable feeling of being sucked down a dark tunnel like a vacuum cleaner was pulling me down down down....

The weird part was I could really feel these three *things* on me and they felt human-like but they were deadly serious about harming me.....I honestly thought for a split-second that I was the victim of a home invasion by burglers....until I opened my eyes to see no one there.

I instantly snapped out of it wide awake and I sat up wondering what the hell just happened......after about 20 min I went back to sleep and it did not happen again.

watch out what you bump into during OOBE' could be in for a world of hurt.

I recommend Robert Monroe's "Journeys out of The Body". He talks about how there are some beings that sometimes jump at your astral body and try to mess with you. They can do absolutely nothing but give you fear. The best way to take care of the situation is to try to imagine them away. The more you fight them, the more they'll come back. You have to use thought to deal with the situation.

Something like this happened to me.Did you feel like you were sexually

I wouldn't describe it as sexual, more like clinical.

Sex was the last thing on my mind, but I suppose people you are raped would say the same thing.

You know reading the posts in this thread is starting to worry me. Some of these experiences are very frightening indeed.

I wrote a thread about my experience,I really got heckled.I would suggest
you read some of the replies I received.My incident occured back in 1986.
I would forget it for awhile,then something would trigger the memory.
I had always considered the experience as a rape. Later,when I would
think about it,it was more like a pelvic exam and it hurt.
