It happened while training to be an Infantryman in the army around January 1976, I can still hear ABBA on my little transistor radio now! We had been on a two day exercise somewhere up in Staffordshire, England, the name and place escapes me as it was over thirty years ago now.
My mates had been in for a shower and gone to NAFFI, after having a shower myself I was feeling really tired so thought I would lay on my bunk with the pillow just resting on my forehead, and I was so exhausted it wasn't long before I dropped off to sleep.
I awoke with a humming like noise with words I couldn't really understand, maybe they weren't words at all just deafening silence if you know what I mean. Also I had this tremendous pressure pressing down on my body, but mostly around the chest area. No matter how I tried to position myself I couldn't move, (I FELT PARALYSED), couldn't even twitch my little finger.
I remember feeling if I really tried hard enough I might be able to fly, and then I felt myself sliding down the bed very slowly but also very surely, it was as though my bed was being tipped up on end but it wasn't, it was flat on the floor.
What seemed like at least half an hour was probably only a few minutes when finally I could move again and boy I moved like superman in a flash I was gone, ran down the hall and out of the building.
It was the most scary thing I have ever experienced in my life, and it was like the hands of a person only there was no person there. Having an experience like that made me feel like I didn't want to be alone so I decided to go down the NAFFI with the other lads. On the way down there I saw a 4 ton lorry that had ploughed into a wall and ricocheted onto the path I was walking on, so there was a bit of a detour to the NAFFI.
Never thought anything about it at the time but years later I was chatting to my Dad and he suggested the experience I had on my bunk years earlier could have been my Aunty Tanny SEE: (MY COMFORTING FRIEND) delaying me from the danger of the 4 ton Lorry!
Just like paranormal experiences I had experienced before I became very frightened at the time, just wish there was an explanation for these occurrences. I have read about people having similar experiences but never finding an explanation which has left me like them very frustrated. Perhaps one day it will all be explained, who Knows!
