Last year was the first, and so far only, experience I have ever had in regards to Sleep Paralysis. I am not quite sure exactly what I think of Sleep Paralysis, at least when it comes to paranormal events. I would say that I believe most Sleep Paralysis stories are simple neurological mishaps. Although, I can very easy see a connection with some of these Sleep Paralysis events, and the paranormal.
I have posted this story on various different forums, and had some interesting responses. One of the interesting comments was from an individual who believes that all Sleep paralysis stories have some sort of paranormal relation to them; which I find nothing wrong with. Their analysis of the situation - due to some of its traits - was that it could have been some sort of vision of a future paranormal event.
Nevertheless, I found this view to be quite interesting, and am wondering how all of you will interpret this. Here is my story.
About one year ago (sometime in the year 2013), I was sleeping on my back within my bed - which is a position I almost never sleep in - but, for some reason I felt it was comfortable that night.
I live in a four-level split house. When you enter, you're greeted by a nice open concept living room, attached to a dining room and a kitchen. You can see two sets of stairs from the entrance, both next to the dining room and the backdoor. One of the stairs heads down to the lower level, which has two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a third set of stairs which goes down to the finished basement. The second set of stairs exiting the dining room goes upwards, to a small plateau overlooking the house below. Up there is also a door to the master bedroom, and another door for the bathroom.
The bedroom was where I sleep. A nice, spacious room. The bed facing the closet. The door on the right, and a large window to the left.
From the bed - and with the door open - you can only see the door for the upstairs washroom, and part of the staircase that leads up to these rooms.
It was around 8:00am, and I had awoken. Yet, it wasn't a normal type of awakening. My eyes were already open, and my vision simply disintegrated from a dream-like state, to reality. My fiance was sleeping next to me, and I could see her with my peripheral vision. However, I was unable to move my eyes at all. My arms, legs and head felt as though they were still 'asleep'. I was unable to move any part of me. In fact, I don't even recall breathing. My eyes were simply fixated directly towards the end of our bed.
Suddenly, yet slowly, I began to see a dark figure rise up from the end of the bed. It slowly ascended; black, drenched hair, over a female body (very similar to the exact image of 'The Ring' girl; but more close to an age of 18-20).
I couldn't make out it's appearance at all, as her hair was covering her face. Knotted and wet, as if she just came from rotting in some kind of bog. I tried to grab my fiance, as it was so vivid that I thought it was real, but I couldn't move, and felt helpless. I was so paralyzed that I couldn't even shift my eyes, so I was forced to stare at this creature, who was staring right back at me. Breathing, but not moving. I had to use my peripheral vision for everything.
My daughter, 16 years old, came up the stairs and into the washroom. I attempted to scream out her name, so she could run away for her safety, as this creature seemed very dark and dangerous. My paralyzed state did not allow me to make any noise; and so my daughter closed the bathroom door, and didn't hear me.
The creature didn't even flinch to the sounds and movement of my daughter.
That very instant is when I realized, "I'm dreaming!"
I don't have a daughter (I'm 24). Once I came to that realization, I instantly became totally conscious and without paralysis. The creature vanished, and I felt quite relieved.
That is all I have, for this particular experience. What are your thoughts on the matter. Do you believe I should be concerned, or prepare in any sort of way for the future? Do you find this to be a sign or vision of some sort? Or do you believe that this could have really been a paranormal experience, and the only 'dream-like' part was that of having a daughter?
Perhaps even something other than those events?
The only reason I am considering this incident as a possible paranormal one is due to my fiance's continued relation with very dark, evil entities. In this Sleep Paralysis event, however, whatever it was, was very focused on me.
