Before the story let me introduce myself. I am Vicky and from beginning I used to live in urban areas, but as I passed my 10th class my mom and me shifted to my village in Haryana.
In villages the people are usually very sweet, specially relatives. I had a habit of staying out of my home with my cousins and friends late at night. I usually slept at my cousin's home.
One day I said to my mother that I'll sleep at my cousin's house today, but unfortunately she refused and said that it's not nice to sleep at others house at night for so many times. Without listening what she said, I rushed to my cousin's house.
All three of my cousin's went to sleep and I started listening to music with earphones. But about after an hour I suddenly felt some shadow type thing went from the door of the other room to the main door. I seriously got so much terrified that I made my cousin wake up and we both went to the verandah and looked around but there was nothing and when I told him about it, he said that I am crazy and told me that he himself locked the other room and the keys were with him.
Then we went back to the room and I decided to sleep near the room cooler which was kept away from the door. Then I fell asleep and then suddenly I woke up feeling pain in my chest. I checked the clock and it was 12:15 am. I sat for about five minutes and as I laid down I felt my whole body paralyzed and the fan of the cooler automatically started to get slow and fast. I tried to shout but was unable, I even tried to move my body really hard but couldn't even move my fingers. I even was not able to blink my eyes. The fastening and slowing of the cooler fan and my struggle to move remained for about half minute. After that I shouted so loudly that all my cousins and my uncle woke up and they all started asking that what had happened to me and I was so much terrified that I started shivering and not even a word came out of my mouth. They all immediately took me to my house. I was so much afraid that I didn't slept for a second that night.
Till now I haven't understood what actually happened with me that night and after that incident I never slept at my cousin's house.
I thought SP involved the chemical produced by our bodies to keep us from 'acting' out our dreams... YES our eyes may be open but our dreams may carry over a bit into the 'waking world'.
There are other factors that must be accounted for before an experience like this can be ruled as something other than SP.
