Night Time Hauntings


I used to experience pressure during sleep when I was 15-16 years of age (When I was in India). I also experienced as if someone was touching and pressing my skin with a finger sometimes and I used to think my brother was doing it to wake me up. I used to get up and never found anything around me. I told my parents and they advised me to chant God's name in mind whenever such thing should happen. I avoided sleeping alone in my room during those days. But, surprisingly, no one except me complained about it in that house! After some span of time, I stopped experiencing those things.

Now I live in USA. Few nights ago, I experienced a very strange thing again and I cannot believe it... When I was sleeping during the night I felt I was dreaming something. Someone was touching my upper body with a palm (It felt so real!). I looked around and a little boy cladded in a white sheet was walking away from me. When I looked at him, he gave me a look back and his face seemed painted in White too. Then, I suddenly felt scared and I could still feel that someone did really touch my upper body. I opened my eyes, nothing was around me. But, even with open eyes, I was feeling someone left me with a warm touch on my upper body. I could feel it in all my senses. Strange!

Next night, almost one hour later when I fell asleep, I suddenly felt as if my bed has started to shake. I got a strange feeling as if there was an earthquake and, opened my eyes. I found that my bed was still shaking and it stopped after about a minute. I just started praying and somehow managed to sleep again. Next morning, I did not hear any news about earthquake in my area.

Now, I read a lot of stories on this site and as advised by someone I have started chanting Jesus & Mary whenever I go home and go for sleep. Fortunately, I have not experienced anything after these two nights and I really wish not to.

Can anyone explain this kind of thing? I am really scared after this happening.

I had another experience of sleep paralysis last night. It was nearly 3:00 am and I was fast asleep in my bed. Accidently, I had left the window of another room open and forgot to close it before sleeping.

I went to bed at around 11:00 last night and fell asleep around 12:00 midnight. At around 3:00 early morning, I felt my body was tightly restrained by some heavy force. I was struggling to breathe. I wanted to scream and shout and wanted to move, but something prevented me from moving. I was angry, more than scared. It went on for about 2-3 minutes and I opened my eyes, there was nothing in the room. I felt as if my body was released from a very powerful force and I felt the pain all over my body. My throat was drying, but I didn't get up from the bed beacuse of the fear. I was feeling so irritated that my deep sleep got disturbed. Then after struggling for about 1 hour I could sleep again and I kept chanting Jesus & Mary until I was asleep again. But, I am really scared as I live alone and this time the ghost was a very powerful one...

I will never leave the windows open during night from now on...
