Not to sure if this would belong here, or in Dreaming...

Nevertheless, for a bit of a while now, I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and vaguely see like a cloaked figure, or lights in a form of a figure...

I don't make much of it, but seeing as it happened again last night, it's fresh in my memory so thought I'd share...

Last night, when I woke up in the middle of the night, I distinctly remember this time round, it was a reddish/orange lights in like a figure form and I spoke to it...
What I said was "F**K off, not tonight, leave me alone..."

I also remember from other experiences, I try to kick the figure/flunk it away or just completely ignore it with the same "F**K off" responses as I want to sleep...

I do not fear these figures/etc...

Now not to sure what to make of it, as I know it can easily be a wild imagination playing it's part from reading a fare few ATS posts


But what are your thoughts on this and furthermore, anyone experiencing something similar...

I just find it weird, that I am actually verbally communicating at it lol

Do you have problems breathing/trouble moving? If so, it may be sleep paralysis. I've heard from many people about seeing shadowed, cloaked figures during this phenomenon.

The good news with sleep paralyses is that you can get checked medically for it, it will cost you, but then if you have it and you experience this you can just be like oh its just that. Now, if they can't find a medical reason for the "sleep paralyses" then it most definitely could be something paranormal.

yeah i had this happen to me. With the response this is a just lucid dreaming or SP until i actually told the person at the house i was at when i was dreaming what they had been watching in the front room while i was being choked out by cold clammy hands. I have felt the total and utter fear of being unable to move and knowing that something was watching me carefully. It's not that you just cant move its that you cant move or scream or yell total fear covers you and even though you want to be able to see what this thing is your body will not move but you can see everything going on around you. this thing is just out of your vision range. You can tell your self and other people its all a dream if you want to but people who have gone through it know its something totally different most want to believe it a dream but i have never had a dream that real in my whole life. I felt cold how often do you feel weather conditions in your dream?

Nah, I can breathe and move fine as in many instances the verbal abuse is with hand gestures, followed by me turning over back to sleep...
Not to mention when I try to kick whatever the figure/light is...


At times, I have felt paralyzed though, but I just wiggle my toes, which snaps me out of it and makes me able to move again...

I to have also experienced the, being able to see everything, but when I try to look at what is in the room with me, my vision gets obstructed...
It's funny and aggravating at the same time...

Do have any troubles moving, breathing, are do you get scared, if yes it might very well be sleep paralysis.
I've been having slepp paralysis since i was 8 years old so i can tell you a bit about that.

if not you might be like my younger brother, he wakes up several times out of dead sleep and starts talking crap

but since you said you have memory of what you are doing i dont know

A very brave soul, I must say. I have never experienced anything like this myself, but I am generally not a skeptical person. So I must ask, what do you believe this is?

Sleep paralysis seems like a reasonable explanation. I've had it before, it's horrible. Basically, the "messages" that keep you from acting out the going-ons in your dreams during REM fail to stop being sent upon the shift to "waking" consciousness. It can be very, very, unpleasant.

Why is every paranormal experience that happens at night labeled "sleep paralysis"? Why is that the automatic go-to? Shortsightedness I suppose. Regardless, I've experienced these entities several times. In much the way you describe. I can also move and speak during these experiences. I, for one, don't believe it is sleep paralysis. But have faith. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before psychology comes up with a sub-classification of sleep paralysis to work this into.

I know what sleep paralysis is...
This is not sleep paralysis, as I CAN MOVE AND AM AWARE AND AM SPEAKING...
I legit, told it to "F**K OFF" before rolling over and going back to sleep...

I do not care for Ghosts, or Paranormal entities...
If being honest, I don't believe in those that say, they have been contacted by ghosts or spirits...

Just curious as my mind could potentially be in and out of dream state and I'm remembering sleep talk...
Or
Something is coming into my room and I've hung out with it or what not as I've said to it
"Not tonight"

LOL

HELLO, this is my first reply ever on ATS. I joined because my daughter is 14 yrs old and has been seeing this shadow figure for a few years now. It stands in her room and just stares at her. It is a tall black shadowy figure with an abnormally long neck, arms and fingers, it has white glowing eyes as well. She wont tell me what the face looks like. She is terrified. One time we were spending the night at a friends house and the figure came to her and this time it took ahold of her ankles and held them tightly down on the bed. She says that sometimes when it shows itself to her she can hear a low steady knocking and oblects have flown off her dresser as well. I have my daughter in therapy and have sought medical answers for this with no avail. I believe you may be seeing something similar to what my daughter is seeing. She sees it at least a few times a week though. Any input would be much appreciated. Thank You.

Hi there,

to be honest since I posted this message, I have only experienced this once more...
Either I am not being 'visited' anymore or whatever it was visiting me, is upping the 'forget me' dosage


Your scenario sounds different to mine and could potentially be somewhat of an evil entity,
as your daughter has said she has felt whatever is going on physically...

I on the other hand, from memory, would just be aggravated that whatever it was 'controlling' was not showing themselves to me or were interrupting my precious sleep...

I'm no expert or anything, but I will say, tell your daughter to try talk to whatever it is?
See if communication may work...
Also, when something has 'taken' control of you/her and not able to move,
I find wiggling my toes helps as that tells my brain that I can move and then I am able to move...
