Hello. A few days ago I had a very strange experience and am having trouble deciding if the event really happened or whether I just dreamed it. I'm
leaning more towards it did actually happen however I'd like other peoples opinions as if it was real I'm not sure exactly what happened to me.
I was feeling tired so I decided to goto bed and have a quick nap. After a while I started to hear a buzzing / static electricity like noise, not
unlike the sound made in the matrix when entering / exiting the 'virtual world' (watches everyone start to roll their eyes hehe).
I sat up so I could listen better to work out where this noise was coming from. However when I tried to get out of bed I couldn't move. It felt like
there was a force trying to push me back down onto the bed. The harder I tried to get up the louder this static sound became and the harder this force
seemed to be trying to push me back down on the bed. The best I could do was resist it enough to continue sitting upright.
I tried opening my eyes but for some reason was completely unable to. Once again, the harder I tried the louder this static sound became and I noticed
the hairs on my body were starting to stand on end like they do when you are charged with static electricity.
By now I was starting to panic a bit, not knowing what the heck was going on, and I remember trying to work out if I was dreaming or not. Anyway, I
kept trying with all my might to open my eyes and eventually I was able to see around the room, but everything was in black and white.
However (and this is a bit ... odd), even though I felt completly unable to move, I quite easily was able to lift my arm and check that my eyes were
actually open because even though I could clearly see, my eyes were (or at least at the time i thought they were) still quite firmly closed. When I
ran my hands over my eyes I realised that they were quite firmly closed, so I put my arm back down to help hold myself up and once again was
completely unable to move.
I remember being scared witless, telling myself to keep calm, thinking "I need to leave my body" and straining with all my might to at the least
bring my head forward.
At that point the static sound turned into more like a deafening cracking and I felt like I was being electrocuted (not a particularly pleasant
feeling...) and this force trying to push me back flat onto the bed got almost too strong to resist.
Next it felt like my head became free to move around, but it wasn't my head. It felt like I can only describe it as my soul leaving my body, and it
was my ... spiritual (??) head I was actually moving and using to look around the room. I could feel something tugging my 'spiritual head' back
towards my body, at which point I must have blacked out, because the next thing I remember is opening my REAL eyes, my heart pounding and my body
tingling like I'd just had an electric shock. One of the reasons I am finding it hard to believe this was just a dream was when I opened my REAL
eyes, it wasn't the same as when you have just woken up, still feeling slightly groggy etc. I was fully awake, my limbs weren't stiff as they
usually are, my tongue was asleep, as usually happens (usually takes a good 30mins after I've woken up before I can say something more than
Also, normally I basically bounce out of bed but it took me a good 10minutes just to get my body to wake up so I could move. For the rest of the day I
was unusually charged with static electricity.
It may have been my imagination going beserk but that night I could have sworn I kept seeing a dark shadow of no concernable lingering out of the
corner of my eye, and since then (4 days ago) I've felt constantly drained and all the muscles in my legs feel stiff like I'd just run a marathon.
I've also had this feeling there is a (bad) presence with me.
However I have always had a presence of one sort or another for as long as I can remember, especially one that brings a feeling of fear over me that
has been with me since I was a child but its never caused me harm or done anything overly freaky apart from ocassionally sliding a drawer open and
shut which I'm pretty used to by now... It seems to prefer to watch....the dirty lil bugger
But anyway that's an entirely different issue...I
Anyway, back on topic, what do you guys think? Do I need prozac, a psychiatrist, brain scan, exorcism or something else?
If this was just a dream, then what could the explanation be for my whole body tingling as though I had just had an electric shock? (it definately
wasn't pins and needles :S), and the shadow that I've been seeing lately?
I've tried to be as descriptive as I can. Also when I was seeing things in black and white, I managed to look around the room, and the only thing I
saw that was out of the ordinary was a dark shadow which seemed to stay in the very corner of my vision. Apart from that the room was exactly in the
condition it was when I "woke up" and looked around it with my real eyes...
And no there was no electrical equipment near the bed (I'm so poor I don't even have an alarm clock lol *sighs*), and no power points nearby so that
rules out some sort of shortcircuit or touching a live wire.
One extra piece of information that might send the loon-o-meters through the roof the night before I read a thread on this site about a member who
managed an OBE by asking for help from someone else on the astral plane, spiritual world, whatever the buzzword is this week, so just before I went to
bed that night I asked for a GOOD person / creature / thing to help me have an OBE. Is it possible this was all some VERY realistic nightmare because
of what I'd read the previous night? Or did something of not entirely pure intentions answer my request?
If it did, then it's something a heck of alot stronger than anything I've encountered before. Usually I can basically just tell the presence to
either show itself and tell me what it wants or go away, but this presence that I feel, feels different. It feels ALOT bigger than anything I've felt
before...maybe it's the son of satan come to claim my soul to be forever tormented by 1000 young virgins who are forever just millimetres out of my
