You did say…
But at the same time the experience was very traumatic, unlike my other sleep paralysis experiences.
I didn't know what you meant by that. I had this one time experience, I was lying in bed asleep and dreaming someone came in the room and sat down on
the bed. I felt it. This was so disconcerting I woke up and thats when a hand pressed on my back, holding me down.
I was fully awake at this point, lying on my belly looking to the side, feeling this hand on my back. Suddenly I hear this 'in my head' telepathic
voice tell me to try and get up. I just lay there wondering, what the hell, is this a test?
I felt the bed move again, felt the pressure of the hand on my back and heard again a voice say, this time… look at me
This really freaked me out because all I had to do was turn my head to the other side and look behind me and I would see (whomever, whatever) it was
sitting on my bed, holding me down.
I'm like, No,no, ohno, I'm not looking and got scared enough to try and rise off the bed. After a lot of effort I succeeded in overcoming the pressure
and began to raise up from my belly, whereupon I suddenly felt the hand leave my back and the bed rise from something getting up off it.
I still had my head to the wall, refusing to look, but get this, it walked out of the room, squeaking the floor, right where it squeaks when I walk on
I lay there a while (again, fully awake) thinking this over before I got the courage to turn and look… the room was empty.
It was freaky deeky, never had that happen before. People will say that was a sleep paralysis, as in this thing only happens in dreams. I would agree
with them except I became fully awake during the event, I was not asleep anymore. One should know the difference, as I do.
Sorry to those poor souls that never experience these sorts of things, its their loss. Their world is purely visual, nothing spiritual at all…. tsk,
Begs the question, why do sleep paralysis events often associate with entities of some sort? Shouldn't we just dream we are frozen and unable to move?
Why is there any other person or entity at all?
