I am a religious man and I believe in demons and the like. I believe that they are jealous of our physical bodies and wish to harm us in any way they can, such as tempting us to sin and in some cases possessing our bodies. This particular night I learned that they are able to express themselves so that we are aware of their presence as a way to frighten us and vent their hatred.
This is a short experience to relate but it was the most memorable one to me. It was terrifying and I hope I never have another one like it again.
As I mentioned before, I am a religious man, and I was on a mission trip for my church. One night I woke up completely unable to move. My hair is rising just thinking about this. In the middle of my bedroom there appeared to be a giant heat wave. It moved from side to side and obscured everything that was around it.
No, I didn't see a horrible demon or some monster, but with the hate and pure horror that I felt I might as well have seen the devil himself standing there in front of me.
This lasted for too long. I couldn't move and all I could do was watch this blurry wave move around the room. I was crying from the fear and the fact that I was powerless to move. The horrible feelings that seemed to emanate from this being were too much.
I prayed to our Father in heaven intensely that I would be free from this power. I don't know why I didn't think of that earlier. Almost immediately I regained my ability to move and the presence was gone. Besides the residual fear of the experience I felt no more evidence of that tormentor. I laid awake for most of the night until I finally fell asleep at some point.
I can't express enough the pure terror that I experienced that night. I am a firm believer that there are many things that we as a human race just do not understand.
