A few years ago, I had the strangest experience. I now know it could have been a false awakening or sleep paralysis, but at the time I had no idea
what had happened to me. The feeling was so real
I had a dream that I was in my loungeroom with 3 of my friends. They weren't familiar but in my dream i knew they were my friends, 2 boys and a girl.
I was laying on the couch and we were all just having a laugh. Suddenly one of the guys pulled out a gun and kept telling us to shutup. We thought
this was nonsense, and just laughed at him, knowing he wasn't going to pull the trigger.He then came up behind me and held my arms down, as they were
above my head, i kept thinking that he was going to rape me.
At this point I had awoken, not able to move my arms, like he was still holding me, my legs and the rest of my body were free to move except for my
arms, still up above my head but in contact with the bed. I tried to call out to my mum but I was so terrified, no words could come out of my mouth.
After about 30 seconds he let go, when I opened my eyes only to see a picture of a womens face in front of me, she was looking up and crying. It's
hard to explain, but each time I tell the story, I explain it like this; You know when you close your eyes at night and there are swirling
lights/picutres in the darkness. Thats what it was like, except my eyes were open and it was very bright picture. It wouldnt go away, whether I had my
eyes opened or closed. I was very much in shock and couldn't even turn my head to look away, it all just happened so quick.
She finally disappeared and I quickly laid on my side. When I opened my eyes again there was another picture. This one was a demons face screaming,
this picture was moving, but there was no sound. It was there for about 3 seconds. When it went away, i was that petrified that I couldn't even get
up to leave my room. I just lay under the covers in tears for hours, wondering what the heck had just happened.
For ages I thought it was some kind of sign, and it still could be, who knows.
But I am now aware the crazy things the mind can do during sleep and have just passed it off as a false awakening.
