This has happened to me quite a few times and I'm really unsure what to do. It doesn't only happen at my house but anywhere I might fall asleep.
Every once in a while when I am trying to go to sleep, I start to feel this pressure that doesn't allow me to move. Immediately I try to get out of the hold but it feels as though I am trapped in a type of cocoon. Then I try to yell to get someone to help me, but nothing comes out. I usually have to try to rock side to side until I finally lunge awake. Sometimes if I try to sleep again right away it happens all over again. There have also been times when I am with my girlfriend and I end up hitting or kicking her hurting her kind of bad, which obviously I don't like to do. But even if I don't hurt her, I still scare the crap out of her when I lunge out of this trance.
I always found this strange and a little scary but never really thought much about it. But I recently was talking to a medium who told me that it may be a spirit trying to take control. She gave me something to bathe in and told me to have an egg floating in the water. It seemed to work. But I had just started coming back. I think it is because of the sadness I am feeling right now. I recently lost someone close to me. I don't really know what to do about it. The medium told me that I am susceptible to these spirits because I have a "gift". But I don't know how to use or control this "gift".
I guess what I am looking for is some answers as to what this is, and how to stop it. And maybe even find out if I actually do have a "gift" and learn to use it.
