At one point i had it every time i went to sleep.
Three that i remember being particularly bad:
I felt hands on my legs pulling me down.
Felt something sitting on my chest holding me down, mouth filled with some kind of rusty taste, in my mind it was blood. Actually that was the first
experience i ever had.
Another was when i heard vertical blinds rattling like someone was shaking them really fast. They were the blinds on my _
Those were years apart and the other were just your ordinary run of the mill cannot move paralysis.
Oh another strange part of every time, i can remember, is the only part of my body that can move is my neck meaning i can turn my head but can't open
my eyes and for some reason my jaw vibrates and honestly i can't do that on my own or while awake.
Ask me anything you want.
Sorry for not including this:
1. How old was you when it first happened / which area was you located?
I was around 17. Mine happened at three different locations and all were where i lived. First place it happened was a very strange house. So for me
they occurred in three different houses and two different states.
2. How long has it been going on/does it still happen?
It lasted for a little over ten years and now i think they are basically gone.
3. What you saw (if anything).
I didn't see anything. In fact i cannot open my eyes.
4. What happened?
Pretty much what i explained above except i leave one part of one time it happened out and never wrote it down or told anyone.
Basically like others have said and since i found the internet i would say the experiences are very similar.
When people say out of body experience it does feel like you are leaving your body but in my case i fought it so if it was one i didn't want that to
happen. Hard to explain though.
5. How long did it last?
Hard to say but they last for minutes and i have had one after another in the same night where i wake up from them go back to sleep and they just
happen again within seconds or minutes of falling asleep but then you are like in between sleep and awake so i won't say i was actually sleeping. It
isn't a dream as far as i am concerned.
6. Was you able to do anything to stop it?
I think that the struggle to break free stops it.
I said something and stopped it like turning on a switch. So there i was trying to scream but said one word and stopped it immediately. This was when
i felt the hands, more like an animal paws with claws, pulling me down. Felt so real that i still vaguely remember the claws going into my skin.
7. Are you a religious person?
Yes and no.
8. Was you contacted by something, if so what did it/they say?
Mostly audible, never saw anything.
9. Did the experience feel positive / negative.
Definitely nothing positive and the word terror accurately describes it.
10. Was you left with any after effects? (Feeling sick or different in yourself)
I had no other effects. Since i was young when they began i just accepted it but it effected my sleep for many years. When i was young and didn't go
on the internet i had no other explanation than to see them as....well i don't want to say it but it isn't good and that is an understatement.
Reading about other peoples experiences has helped me immensely.
First to see that i am not unique or cursed in some way. The really frightening part is that you always, or at least for me, feel as though something
else or someone else is there with you but it isn't good.
Honestly, at this point i would say they wereare psychological. One way i tested that out is telling myself i am going to have one and sure enough i
would have one.
