I am in desperate need for even the slightest bit of an explanation to an odd experience I had the other morning. I have always been very open to the ideas that ghosts and spirits are very real, and admittedly I have recently started getting more into tarot and such, however nothing as blatant as this has ever happened to me before and I have been having trouble sleeping ever since.
The other morning, at approximately 5:30 - 6:00 am, I woke up in my friend's bed laying flat on my back, to a heavy pressure on both of my shoulders, almost as if something were pinning me down flat to my bed. I could not scream, and I could not move, and later that morning my friend told me she was startled by my restless nature and the way I was making a strange mumbling noise and moving from side to side. I was so scared, it continued for what felt like a few minutes, and the scariest part of all was that I could see nothing on top of me, but could hear the loudest, most terrifying breathing noises being made in my right ear. It has scared me stiff and I have been staying up almost all night just so I am not caught in the same situation again.
I would really appreciate it if anyone could supply me with some sort of explanation, even if you are unable to help with this particular case, perhaps even a link or an idea on what or who I could contact to find out more? Also, does anyone know what it could be? Is it definitely a spirit or ghost? I am secretly hoping, (while almost positively sure it is one) that it can be explained in some other way, because I'm to terrified to go to sleep again.
