I'm not sure if I'll get a response on this story but I just wanted to share some of my paranormal experiences and how they have evolved over the years. Some quite terrifying and scary the rest happen while I'm in the in-between stages of astral travel and dozing off to sleep. My very first experience happen when I was about 3 or 4 years old and before anyone states the obvious of how I can remember that young I have always had a great recollection of memories and major moments in my life.
This happened when I living in my old home with my mom in Illinois. I used to sleep with a night light on in the hallway because of fears of the dark. My door would always be open so the light could leak into my room, on one particular night I remember the light glaring brighter than usual (no idea how I remember this)... I remember waking up in the middle of the night and right in front of my bed was an ultra black figure just sitting right at the foot of my bed. The pitch blackness seemed endless although I should've been scared I didn't feel any anger from this presence or formation of the entity. I very strongly remember in having ear length black hair and I could see the silhouette of its ears and bone structure. The part that gets even more weird is I remember staring at this thing for a long amount of time. The feeling of the room was dead silent like no energy was able to enter but I felt a vibrating energy from this figure. I remember being in a private Christian school at the time and when I tried to tell someone they told me in was the devil...
From that moment on I've been able to feel certain presences in rooms when no one else is there. I remember a specific event when I was asleep and I awoke to blaring rock music (listen to it not really ever) and it was hurting my ears it was so loud, my body was in a state of paralysis and I was completely stuck. I just had to lay there in listen to the music as it played and I went back to sleep. I know for a fact it wasn't happening in real time because as soon as my sleep paralysis lifted you could hear a pin drop it was so quiet and I just remember my heart racing in my chest (I was around 10 or 11 when this happened) I have always been very aware of these instances. Sometimes I have sleep paralysis and can hear someone whispering in my ear very gently, I can feel their breath and heat as the talking continues. As of not lately I have been experiencing sleep paralysis almost every night and when it happens I can see faces but very faint and I hear knocks or talking, sometimes even tickling on my side (I know how weird that must sound lol)
I have also always questioned my existence and I feel very strongly that I come from somewhere else yet I don't know where and it has really been bugging me. I am now an adult and I just feel like there are more answers to the equation and decided to post on the forum to see if someone else has the same experiences.
