Before I share my stories please take the time to read this pretext in an attempt to have a clearer understanding of the overall context.
I'm 27 years old as of a couple of weeks ago. My first experience happened at around the age of 23/24. I did not hold any paranormal beliefs prior to
the experiences and there is absolutely no consistency between my physical or mental state and the onset of the experience.
Also, I would like to say that regardless of what this phenomenon is, 'paralysis' is a poor choice of word when in many cases the effect is more akin
to moving underwater or in a jar of honey (lol). I do not personally have any strong idea of what this state is other than an intermediary state of
consciousness that is sandwiched between wakefulness and sleep.
I dream a lot, pretty much every night, and they're often grand and extreme. When I woke up one night in my university room, I knew for a fact that
this wasn't a dream. Something was wrong though, it was an unmistakable feeling that shook me to the core instantly.
I looked towards my room door which was diagonally opposite my bed and saw a large black figure that seemed to be floating... that moment was
absolutely terrifying. I knew I wasn't dreaming so I was essentially having a panic attack at the idea of this actually happening.
I tried to move or scream but realised I had no power to, and in the meanwhile this thing started slowly moving towards me. At this point I am
literally feeling it radiate fear and evil as it moves closer and it's the most scared I've ever been in my life - keeping in mind that I've been in a
couple of actual real life threatening situations. I actually submitted my life to it in my thoughts for that moment.
When it got to the side of my bed it slowed down and said something in a #ed up sounding language. Then it just suddenly flew out of my window, but it
seemed to shrink to a point in space as it did so. I remember closing my eyes and suddenly being in what was definitely a dream relative to the
experience that had just happened.
The dream involved the thing that I had just saw and it was chasing me around my secondary school area. I don't really get the significance of this.
I had a very good time in school, although I had some bad experiences like everybody else of course.
Somehow I got away from it and suddenly a weird looking beast like creature that I can't remember in detail caused a 'rip' in my dream like it was
fabric and laughed, only to say "I can control your dream". I then 'properly' woke up and pretty much stayed frozen in my bed for hours after trying
to figure out WTF just happened.
I never had another experience in that room again, but I had a few small ones when I moved into a new place. These were very weird. It's like I would
wake up but instantly I would know someone's with me. I would try to look around or turn and I could catch glimpses of movement but I can't see in
time to properly understand what's happening.
Then one night I had a significantly different experience. I woke up and felt a presence and once again couldn't turn in time. However, when I felt
the presence had gone, I realised there was a huge, transparent, crystal-like ball floating above my chest. It was about the size of a basketball. The
fascinating thing is that at this point I'm able to move freely and I'm certain I'm awake. Everything in my room is how it should be.
I sit up and stare down at this ball in childlike awe. I then put my hand on it and realise that my hand (or any part of my body) disappears as I
drive it through the ball, which seems to have no solidity. This amuses me massively and I entertain this for what seems to be 5 minutes before it
goes and I fall asleep.
These experiences happened at fairly equal intervals over the last few years. My last experience was a few days ago and was very freaky. I was having
a fairly lucid dream when I felt that I woke up in my normal bed, except I had a feeling for a second that I was in my parents room, which is
something I get sometimes when I wake up really distorted.
The problem was, I instantly felt this strange 'twilight' like feeling that seems to accompany these experiences, that I can only explain as being
normal but knowing something's definitely not normal. Even worse, I felt a weight on my bed next to me. There was no doubt in my mind about this. I
closed my eyes because I was terrified, and then felt the weight actually shift towards me...
This was really scary but I was telling myself it was just another SP episide. As the weight got really close I swallowed my fear and opened my eyes
to see wtf was going on. In that moment I saw a face come into my view from the left, except that it was almost 'faceless' and had what I seem to
remember as white outlines as eyes.
It seemed to have straw like hair or something but it definitely wasn't straw. The face was almost completely black and void. What's crazy is that,
despite this, in that moment I felt it had emotion through its 'eyes' - it seemed shocked to see me see it lol. It's the weirdest thing I've ever
In its 'shock' it rapidly reclined away from me and I desperately tried to turn towards in but I was very heavily weighed down. It made a very weird
sound as it 'fled', something I'd describe almost as if it 'scurried' away. It was insect or pixie like if that makes sense. Little taps or giggles.
When I knew it had gone, I could move freely and instantly got out of my bed and looked for it to now avail.
I really don't know what to make of these experiences but it's very hard to deduce a logical theory for the content of them and the consistencies they
seem to somewhat share across a multitude of different parameters. They're bloody scary too lol. I hope this proves interesting or insightful to
anyone. Please share your stories too if you desire.
