I Thought He's Gone Already


First of all, before I start telling you my story, I would like to remind you to read my first story if you haven't yet... There's a connection with the story I will tell you. Now, I am 16 years old. The first story I posted was when I was still 14 or 15. Since it was posted in 2010, I guess it's been 2 years.

Ok so, something really really weird and random happened this morning (23 January)

It was around 8:45 am I think. I woke up because I heard footsteps coming into my room, but then I realized it sounded like my dog. I was still laying on the bed, so I turned my head a bit to the door to see if it was my dog but I was surprised that the door was closed.

And so I thought it was just my imagination.

But then, I felt the bed moved/pushed a bit like someone bump into it. I kept thinking it's my dog but I can't stop thinking how in the world the door was still closed. I still hear the footsteps getting closer to where I was sleeping. I wanted to call my dog's name 'Casey' but I can't believe it how I started to feel paralyzed. I can't move at all. Then I began thinking something weird. Really weird... Is going on.

Then I felt a presence, like a person was standing near me. I thought, "Casey? Casey? Is that you? What are you doing here? Why the door is still closed?!". Suddenly, I saw this shadowy black male figure right beside my bed. I can't believe what I'm seeing that time. Then suddenly he jumped on my bed, right on top of me and just lay there like he's sleeping, putting his head on my chest. I can't really see his face but I can see how he's a bit bloody or burned kind of skin.

At that point, I felt the most terrible worst painful fear ever. I never ever felt that kind of fear in my entire life before. The fear... It's unimaginable. You have no idea how felt. I can't move, can't talk, can't scream, can't think clear. I can feel this really negative energy flowing in my body. It was so intense, creepy, yet also painful on my body I seriously can't believe what was going on.

I thought he's gone longtime ago... I knew it was him... AGAIN.

I was so scared. I tried to move, and I did. I changed position (sleeping on my left side/shoulder). Then the tense was gone. A bit. Not until I felt this fear again. I thought it'll be fine if I change position but then I saw him moved and hugged me from behind, laying there, like he's pinning me from behind. I seriously can't believe what was going on. And I don't even know WHY?!

It's been such a long time this never happen anymore, and even weirder that it happened in the morning. It was so weird and random I really don't know why. I kept asking those questions inside my head when it happened. I just didn't know what to do at all.

I did call upon Archangel Michael that time though I felt how he kept struggling to stay there beside me. Until around 2 minutes later, he was gone. Though I still felt that fear.

I can't believe it. Even myself, I can't believe it was happening. I thought it was over long time ago. But to be honest, I see a shadowy black figure following me everyday every time. I know it's him. Somehow. But I always denied it. I always keep thinking it's just my imagination that he's still here. I keep thinking he's gone already. I keep denying it. Though I know it's him. There. For real. One thing that also makes me confuse is that my dogs never react to him, even my mom didn't feels anything strange around the house. Our house is very very very protected and safe from any low energies, so I wonder how this could still happened.

One more thing. I remember that last night before it all happened, I was talking to my friend on skype about that I like my best friend. In fact, I might think I'm falling for my best friend. I was confused and didn't know what to do about it and so that's why I talked and asked for advice from my friend on skype call. Then I was thinking is it possible that it happened because he (shadowy figure) was jealous? I really don't know, but I've read a lot of stories such.

That's all I'm sharing, but please tell me anything you think, know about this. Please tell me what might is going on. If anyone can try to find out, please tell me who is he and what does he wants. I really don't know what's going on. Why it happened.

[at] Daz, Thank you so much for the information, I shall ask around, maybe these blankets are available in S.Africa, though it is the first time I have heard of them. (I don't get out much these days.) 😐
I too, have back problems... Hmmmm... A double investment! That really appeals to the Scots blood in me. 😆

[at] Scarlet, thank you for accepting my apology. 😊

Thanks Nightlife! ^^ I did contact you via email!
Fergie, its ok lol no need to say sorry
For Shellzy and Aussie I know how sleep paralysis works, in some way I do believe it might be just some SP or any health problems that we can prove sciencetificly, so at some parts I do agree with you guys.
But as I said in my stories, it's not just when I was sleeping, it also happens when I'm awake. I can also see him clearly around me everyday, tho I feel like he's not around anymore for now, since I went to the therapy few days ago...
But who knows what will happen next.
Anyways thank you for the support and comments! ^^
I appreciate it

Shellzy, thank you for coming forward, I think it's important for those who do understand how sleep paralysis works to support others as much as they can by sharing their experience... Cheers mate.

Fergie, there actually a magnetic blanket and the theory is, to the best of my understanding... The magnetic force and the levels of iron in our blood are stimulated by the magnetic balls placed in postion under the stitching... Thus circulating our blood supply throughout our body and taking it to areas that may be lacking... I have slept on one for 10 years due to a back problem of which I found the blanket has works's a link here in Aus, but I'm sure you could buy them locally as well... Http://

Hi Aussie, sorry to hi-jack this story, but you mention a 'magneto blanket'. Please tell me where I could find this. I have bad circulation, and wake up often at night, with pins and needles in both of my arms; sometimes my one leg too. It would be a treat to be able to sleep through the night!
So sorry to jump into your story like this, Scarlet, please forgive me. I have never had experiences like yours, but I wish you the best of luck. 😊

Well said aussiedaz! I'm not saying your experiences arent paranormal but I would take sleep paralysis into consideration. I have suffered from sleep paralysis from a young age and for a very long time I really thought it was something paranormal going on. And I can fully understand why people would think this as it can be terrifying and seem so real.

After I realised what was actually happening to me I started to be able to gain some control over the SP. Personally I try not to sleep on my back because this can trigger off an episode of SP for me. Eaiser said than done I know!

Aussiedaz has some great tips to use, perhaps give some a try and see if this works for you. Good Luck and I hope things improve for you.

I see in your first story that you have considered the possible cause of these experiences as being sleep paralysis and even considered the possibility of manifesting this entity from with in... I also understand it's not easy to accept it when people tell you, what you are experiencing is sleep paralysis and they brush it off as not being paranormal or say something like, you'll be right don't worry about it, it's nothing, it's only S/P!... Not real comforting is it, because these experiences are terrifying and I feel for those who suffer from them, but let me tell you something about them, your not alone... Thousands and thousands of people all over the world have these experiences every night and sometimes in the morning as well like in your account... Some of these experiences end up in a sexual manifestation and some end up with the feelings of paralysis and actual physical pain and sometimes a bit of both and somewhere there in between is what's happening to you correct? What causes them? It is a combination of causes that brings them on, feelings of fear, anxiety, lack of sleep, bad diet, emotional and sexual tension, paranoia and also the paranormal itself... I believe when someone is having a bout of S/P they are kind of caught between a state of paranormal and a state of physical being... And it is from these meshed states of mind is where they feel helpless and trapped in a world they don't understand and the more you fear what's going on around you, usually the more intense the account becomes... Confronting and accepting these experiences during the episode is not easy, I have managed to overcome them on some occasions with laughter and sometimes just through sheer will... They can be turned off like a tap, the starting point is to accept them for what they are and work on some strategy's to take back control!

1. Accept what you are suffering from is sleep paralysis.

2. Disassociate yourself with any thoughts of the paranormal, do not read or watch any programs of such nature.

3. Make sure you sleep soundly and un interrupted by what ever means, exercising and diet will help, so too will going to sleep and waking up at the same time... Try reading a book 1 hour before you go to bed, no drinks after 6pm... It is really important that you get this part right as it's broken sleep that usually puts a person into these transitions.

4. Mantra to yourself 10 times in a row at lunch time every day; Sleep paralysis is not real and I will not fear it... It is important to send a subliminal suggestion to your sub conscious.

5. Try sleeping on your side.

6. You could try and sleep on a magneto blanket that helps the circulation of blood and iron?

Regards Daz.
