HELLO. THANK YOU FOR WELCOMING ME.

After much research, including a recent haunting investigation, which did indeed find haunting evidence, I've been told that I could also possibly have Sleep Paralysis! I feel fortunate to have finally found a Web site that is updated with new comments, for many I've seen date back to the 1990s - 2002.

This condition or presence has 'haunted' me for years, on and off.

This is what I've experienced - please tell me if you have experienced the same or similar and what you found helped or any discoveries are welcomed as well.

My experiences include lying in bed (however the position) and suddenly awakening (or feel I am awakening) very slowly by an entity - always in a different manner. At times this entity will grab my arm or hold me down. I then have to wait until "it" is done. Sometimes, he will lay on top of me. Other times he will be nasty and try to hurt my wrist or hands. At times, this entity will slowly make his way up and down my body - very pleasurably and many times sexually - oral or non-oral. I then again, have to wait until it is done. I usually lie in bed and it takes approximately 1-2 minutes although I am not sure.

I've tried to talk it away but this does not seem to work.

I've also had times when distinct voices are heard next to me in bed. Sometimes sighs and a few times I have felt a breath on my face! Many times it is also accompanied by something dropping loudly on the floor.

This feeling or pressure on my body also sometimes arrives by a buzzing noise or very severe vibration. It almost feels like I am having an attack on my brain of some sort.

I welcome any comments, feedback or help.

Much thanks.
As far as I can tell, you've described varying degrees of Sleep Paralysis.... but I'm no doctor and I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject of sleep paralysis either.

Basic questions I'd ask would be:
Have you ever experienced or been diagnosed with narcolepsy?
Do you experience these wakeful hauntings more when you sleep facing up or in a supine position?
Do you get regular sleep? Is it the full 8-hours of sleep? Is your sleeping schedule regular? Do you take naps or sleep in? Do you feel rested when you wake up?
Do the events occur during moments of increased stress in your life? Has there been a sudden environmental or lifestyle change that coincides with your waking experience?
Are you a lucid dreamer? Do you lucid dream prior to waking?

... and I'm curious... if you focused on something natural in the room if that would assist you in waking more quickly.

If I were you, I'd start a dream journal. When you have an experience such as the one you've described above, write down the details-- write down which position you were in when you woke up... apparent duration of the event... any noises or feelings that occured during the instance... what the "dream" was about.... did you lucid dream? What time you went to sleep the previous night and how much sleep you got... and any changes in your life at that time that may have influenced your sleep patterns.

As with all apparent medical troubles, the best way to find trends is to document each event over a period of time.

First thing I recommend is making sure its not a natural cause, move anything electrical away from your bed. I recommend checking your bedroom for high EMF's I discovered I had sleep paralysis and it only occurred if I slept in one back room near the fuse box, it was a natural fear cage with high voltage (220) wires running over head as well. I moved from that spot and no mare sleep paralysis.

Next I recommend looking around your home for toxins, paint thinners, chemicals, paints, cleaners, make sure your not near them at night.

You stated there was a haunting investigation, by who? I mean a credible team that has experience or a fly by night thrill seeker team?

If your in the US I can pull a toxicology report for your area if you supply me with a zip code. I will then list (if any) bad sites and locations so you can see if you are near one.

Are you under any new stress?
Are you or anyone in the house on medication?
street or prescribed.
Has anyone in the home ever been diagnosed with any mental or medical issue.

Part of what you said makes me hope it is one of the above causes.
When you start to experience this focus on one small muscle, a finger a toe or your tongue and start moving it. This should free you from sleep paralysis. Also if you start hearing sounds at the beginning get up and walk around and then try going back to sleep on your side. Do not sleep on your back.

But if not have you ever heard of incubus or succubus? These are what some people blame for what happens to them in their dreams.

INCUBUS - In folklore a spirit or demon thought in medieval times to lie on sleeping persons, especially women, with whom it sought sexual intercourse.

SUCCUBUS - In folklore, a female demon thought to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men.

If you think you are attacked by demons while you are sleeping, ask the Lord Jesus to help you even as you sleep. Resist what is happening and get up (I know that it is very hard to wake up sometimes). When you get up, command the devils to leave in the name of Jesus. Get down on your knees and talk to the Lord Jesus. Bless His holy name and ask His protection on you that your sleep may be sweet.
Thank you for your reply -- my zipcode is 17507 - Pennyslvania. Let me know.

I've had a fan in my room but it happens without.

Yes - have had much stress.

How woudl I get rid of this incubus? He has been with me for years!

What is lucid dreaming?

I actually dream REAL visions - and many come true. Once I dreamt my Dad died and he did a few days later.

My dreams feature real people although I do not know many of them at all.

Is this normal?

Here are the local top polluters for neurotoxicants in your area. If any of these are close by like say within a couple miles you have been exposed to air released neurotoxins.

Exposure to chemical substances can cause adverse effects on the nervous system (Neurotoxicity). Chemicals toxic to the central nervous system can induce confusion, fatigue, irritability, and other behavioral changes. Exposure to methyl mercury and lead cause central nervous system toxicity, and can also cause degenerative diseases of the brain (encephalopathy). Chemicals toxic to the peripheral nervous sytem affect how nerves carry sensory information and motor impulses from the brain to the rest of the body. The organic solvents carbon disulfide, n-hexane,and trichloroethylene can harm the peripheral nervous system, resulting in weakness in the lower limbs, tingling in the limbs (paresthesia), and loss of coordination. You can experience dillusional behavior, paranoia, and hallucinations with long term exposure.

Lucid dreaming is a dream where you are able to recognize it's a dream and control the dream. They're actually tons of fun to have-- I had one once when I was a teenager where I was being chased by a lion, realized I was dreaming, turned and stared it down. I was still asleep throughout the dream, but I was aware of what was going on in the dream.

Dreaming of things that come to pass at a later time are called precognitive dreams. There are hundreds of dreams of this sort recorded in history. Russian scientist Dmitri Mendeleev worked out his Periodic Table after having seen its complete outline in a dream. Abraham Lincoln dreamed of his own death just days before his assassination. Pompey dreamed of defeat and Caesar’s death was foretold in a dream. Many (though not all) precognitive dreams are only remembered after the fact when the dreamer sees a scene play out and is struck with a feeling of deja vu. This leaves room for skepticism on the subject-- did they really dream that or has their mind convinced them that they had this dream later on and just thought they'd dreamed it? Then, of course, was it really a precognitive dream or was it the mind's way of piecing together real-life concerns or puzzling out real-life problems?

Dreaming of people having faces is actually more common than dreaming of faceless people. The faces in your dreams for crowds of people you don't know may just be faces you've seen throughout the day. Unless, of course, the person in the dream is the focus of the dream. In this case, you might see the person regularly... but maybe you've never talked to them or consciously recognized their presence in your daily life. When the identity of the person in question is unknown, they are generally faceless. It is common in relationship dreams, also in dreams involving repressed and avoided traumas. Try to identify the faceless person by other clues left in the dream: location, age of dreamer, clothing.
WOW - THANK YOU so much. I definitely have precognitive dreams. Can I actually pre-construct them as well? Is this rare? Let m eknwo more!

Please check out my link below, where it says 'sleep paralysis explained'. I'm not saying this is the 'be all and end all' answer to your questions, but it does give a scientific view which you can analyse against a non scientific view.

There are many whom i know of who i believe have had a very real paranormal experience with SP
The link does not work?
