Sleep paralysis

It’s been awhile since I’ve been afraid of what lurks in the dark, I have grown as both a person and a witch but I’ll try to recapture some of the horror I’ve experienced while delving into the world of witchcraft.

One of my first experiences was with what some may call a mare, this entity is comprised of a blue energy, female and haunts the house I live in, when first encountering it I woke up to find I was unable to move, my body frozen by an invisible forced.

Panic instantly consumed me as I desperately tried to move everything and anything… I could not… I could feel a force above me as fingers began to wrap around my neck and squeeze.… the force was unbearable… it’s fingers dig into the back of my neck and into the spine… I couldn’t breath… it felt like I was going to pass out… on the edge… I awoke it was the dead of night and I was out of breath and trembling.

Sleep paralysis?

A little information about me. I’ve been interested in the ghosts for years now, listening to stories from readers on YouTube and reading ghost books. This last year and a half I’ve listened to other stories. Skinwalkers, wendigos, aliens, etcetera. Because of this, I’d say I have a decent base of knowledge on unexplained phenomena, so you would think I would understand this, but I still really don’t.

I was in middle school at the time, being into the paranormal goes in phases to me. Some times I’ll read and watch a lot of material, then after a few months, take a break and focus on another subject. I remember it was one of those breaks, so paranormal things were one of the last things on my mind.

I was in bed facing my room when I woke up suddenly. Everything in my vision looked gray and blurry, whether from the early morning light or something else I’m not sure. I was facing my very colorful dresser and bookcase, but the longer I saw it the blurrier it became. I was confused, I couldn’t move at all, I tried to shift or just move my arms from where they were laying next to me but I couldn’t. Suddenly, I heard something, but it was not coming from outside. It came from inside my head, like you would imagine telepathy. Weirdly, I heard someone telling me, a man I think (its been a while), that I needed to listen for the screams. All I knew was that I was an agent, i remember thinking it clearly. The audio started playing. I focused hard to listen for something, anything.

Dont leave your windows open when you sleep

For the past two weeks or so the days have been getting warmer up here. I’m from Wisconsin so all the posts you see on the internet about the snow storms have already passed us. A couple days ago I opened my window and let in some fresh air. The day quickly passed by as I scrambled to finish my homework for tomorrow. When I finished, I got in bed and listened to some creepy stories out loud trying to fall asleep, unknowingly leaving the window open as I fell asleep. I woke up in the middle of the night and listened for my phone. There was no sound so I assumed it was dead. I looked at my window and saw a figure crawling into my room. Its torso was long, almost stretched out but it’s arms were longer with bony fingers and sharpened nails. It had long scraggly hair and grey skin. It was crawling down from my window which is about 20 feet off the ground from the outside. I tried to move and call for my mom but I couldn’t. It was hard to focus on it and I quickly was pulled back into my slumber. Some time passes and I wake up again, forgetting about the sleep paralysis I had just encountered. In the silence of the night, I heard a scratching sound on the side of my pillow and all the memories rushed back like water flowing from a broken dam. I could hear it scratching my pillow with it’s long nails. I closed my eyes tightly but all I could think about was the creature’s smile, content in knowing how scared I was. I was helpless and gave up thinking I was dead. The pure terror, the feeling of an empty cold pit in the center of your stomach. All of the sudden everything stopped. I was able to move and I quickly ran to turn on the lights. I finished the rest of my sleep in the living room that night. I think the creatures in our dreams live in another plane or dimension. It could hear my phone playing from out of my window and crawled in and because I was half asleep I was able to see into their dimension. Regardless, when I listen to scary stories while i sleep, i’ll be sure to leave my window closed

Terrifying Hunt

Let me just start off by saying that I am not a substance abuser, no drugs or excessive drinking for me. On the night this happened, I did not have any alcohol at all.

I can’t say if this really happened, or if I just hallucinated or dreamed it all. But here goes.

The out doors have always called to me. I love hiking, camping, weekend off-grid survival training, and hunting. During the latter, I had an experience that I truly hope to forget.

Strange Awakening

Hi, My name is Mat, I’m from Canada, I’m a pretty normal guy who hasn’t really had many strange or paranormal experiences, I listen to this channels stories quite often and figured I’d share one of my own.

This happened to me about 3 years ago when I was 20 sometime in the summer. I was still living with my family at the time , and my bedroom was on the top floor and has 3 windows which is important to know for the event that takes place later on. I had a pretty normal day with nothing out of the ordinary taking place. However, when I went to bed that night something extremely strange would take place that would leave me terrified and confused.

I fell asleep after the rest of my family was already in bed and asleep, it was about 12 am Midnight. Everything was fine until I remember feeling tugging on all my limbs, and cold clammy hands wrapped around my ankles and around my wrists as well, they were kind of gently tugging me, I was still half asleep at this point and in a reflex fashion pulled my arms and legs back towards my body and groaned. That is when I heard a voice, the voice was calm, monotone and almost… Like inside my head if that makes sense, it was crystal clear.

Dream Visitor

First let me say that this story is going to be really difficult for me to tell.  However, after spending some time thinking it over I thought that maybe getting it out there will help me deal with what happened and maybe help someone else.  This is completely true and I will do my best to give as much detail as possible.  Because of how terrorized I was I think I blocked a lot of it out even though it was something that happened within this past year.

Even as a kid I always had very vivid dreams.  I often had lucid dreams (those were my favorite) as once I knew I loved the freedom of making choices without consequence.  As I got older, those lucid dreams would leave to some of the best sex dreams ever.  I mention this because it may be important later.  I used to talk in my sleep a bit (based on what my parents have told me) but have never sleepwalked nor had any other sleep issues.  I did have chronic nightmares but that’s a different story entirely.  But I thought having that information may help you understand why, what I am about to describe to you was so different, and so horrifying.

I was a freshman in college when I had my very first “sleep paralysis” type dream.  I use that term loosely as I am not really sure how to categorize what I experienced.  I had been studying on my bed, room light on, sitting with my back against the wall.  I don’t know when I fell asleep but I do remember waking up.  At least I thought I was awake.  I opened my eyes, noticed the books on my lap and heard a knock or something on my door.  I got up to get it and then I woke up.  This continued for about 4 or 5 times each time with me becoming more and more panicked.  The very last time I woke up in my dream I started to hear voices.  They were very mumbled, starting off quietly and continuously getting louder and louder.  All I kept hearing was different voices yelling their name and a date.  I couldn’t keep up with them all and it was starting to make my head hurt.  I remember putting my heads up, squeezing my head, and trying to get off my bed and away from the voices.  The pain was so intense I could barely crawl on the floor as I tried to make it 10 feet across the dorm room and to the door.  When I thought the voices were going to make my head explode, I finally woke up for real.  I was still in the same place with my back against the wall and books on my lap.  I was actually nervous I was still asleep.  I immediately started to cry and called my dad.  I told him I thought I was going crazy.  He said that I probably wasn’t sleeping well and before I voluntarily submitted myself to a psych ward that maybe it would be a good idea to just try and get a few good nights sleep.  I must have listened because I never had the experience again.  I sometimes wished I could have remembered the names and dates I heard but the pain was too intense to allow me to focus.  I wasn’t going to include this part of my dream history but upon sitting down to write this thought maybe it could be related.
