Question: I don’t know whats going on…if it’s sleep paralysis or lucid dreams, or an out of body experience. It started off with me going to sleep then waking up to something on top of me holding me down and suffocating me. I couldn’t move, breath, talk…NOTHING! At the time I believed I was being haunted by a demon…I went to church..it went away…
Then recently it’s changed…its more like I realise I’m sleeping but can’t wake up…I can see through my eyes (I’m guessing from the little bit from my eye lids being open) and I can see myself laying there…im waving my hands in my face but don’t see my hands…i see them just laying there motionless…but it was like my soul was moving…I FELT them moving around!Then today it got worse! I was dreaming a very real dream…where in the dream I was trying to determine if it was a dream or not because it felt sooo real but certain things just didn’t make sense…my room looked just as it does….every little thing was where it was suppose to be…I even felt real pain and sensations in this dream.I was almost convinced it was real life until I looked over at my bird cage and see a bunch of different birds in there that I know I didn’t have and that’s when I realized it was a dream. I suddenly tried to wake myself up and now I’m in the bed laying there I can see myself…(the good thing was that I didnt feel suffocated or another entity not anything like that) but I couldn’t move…i saw my room, my body
laying there and I wave my arms in my face again yet dont see my arms moving…they just laid there…Finally I tried to get up and I kinda saw myself getting up or so I thought but I still didnt have full control of my body and I felt myself falling off the bed and I’m thinking OMG I’m gonna fall off the bed and end up hurting myself really bad because I’m still not being able to brace myself for the fall…as I fall it felt like I was endlessly falling, I opened my eyes and suddenly I was back in my body where it had lay motionless the whole time…I finally reallly wiggled what felt like my soul and finally got my body to move…it was crazy!!!It was almost as if I had a lucid dream, sleep paralysis and an out of body experience ALL together….i didnt mind it too much, specially since I could breath just fine the whole time…but what I fear is what if one day it takes longer to get myself up..what if one day I never wake up…would that be how a coma feels? I have sooo many questions but not enough answers…..please help~ShaheenaPS- I do have a bad sleeping pattern/habit…I have insomnia and often dont sleep at night till bout 3 or 4 am and sleep in as long as I could…I eat late too which is a BAD habit I’m trying to break…but a lot of times when I have these experiences it’s about 1 or 2 pm…not sure if any of that has to do with anything but thought you should know lol…
