Strange Vision of a Demon or Incubus


I am a 19 year old man from NYC, Brooklyn. I have always been into the paranormal and the occult. One day when I was 14 years old I just learned about Ouija boards and I found out that parker brothers makes them and that I can buy the ouija boards at my local toy store. Well, I eventually saved enough money and bought the Parker brothers Ouija board.

The first few days after using the board several times I was not getting any results (I was using the board alone in the daytime and at night). One day at around 1pm when I was using the ouija board I started yelling out "are there any non-human entities or deities that want to speak to me". I kept on asking this question as well as similar questions for about 45 minute. I finally ended the ouija board session and went to my room and listened to my stereo and just relaxed in my room.

I had this strange feeling that someone or something was watching me and circling me since I stopped using the ouija board. This feeling was really intense and never went away no matter where I went in my house. I decided to go to sleep early that night because I thought that maybe the feeling would go away the next day. I went to bed after watching t.v for about an hour at nine pm. I was feeling more than fear, I just knew someone or something was watching me.

After a few minutes of laying in bed I suddenly became paralyzed and when I closed my eyes (more like blinked) I saw this face, it was a face of what I think was a demon or incubus. Its skin was charcoal black almost everywhere except it had a few white stripes on its face (from one side of his face to another). Its eyes were yellow, it had white horns all over its head (where the hair on your head is supposed to be) Its teeth were white, narrow and pointy. The whole experience lasted no more than 5 or 6 seconds (from the paralysis onward). After I opened my eyes I felt much safer than I did that whole day. I knew that whatever it was had left me alone.

For weeks after I was bewildered by the whole incident. I could not explain what had happened and why the details were so precise, I even saw the things pores! The picture remains clear in my memory as if if it had happened yesterday.

I have sleep paralysis all the time.
However when I usually do, a demon is trying to enter my room. I see the sucker at my door entrance in it's shadow form.
This usually happens around 2:50-4AM.
One time I had sleep paralysis after I had seen an ugly face of a female that looked dead.
I guess I have to agree with others that if it's a succubus, sexual activity must take place. Otherwise its some other type of demon. Demons must paralyze their victims so they can feed upon the fear.
Sleep paralysis also normally occurs at deep sleep stages due to the brain releasing chemicals throughout the body.
By the way, I should mention that I have many encounters with succubi, and yes usually something sexual happen even to where I feel real women body parts. I was not paralyzed because they wanted me to touch them (normally it's other way around).
However a demon is a demon regardless, they all are under Satan.
Keep praying and God Bless

A brief note--a demon and an incubus are the same entity.
An incubus is known to be a sex demon, or erotic spirit.
As stated, it specializes in sexual contact with females.
Succubi specialize in males.
There being no erotic overtones mentioned in your account, the entity you tell of may have been neither.

Hello marcink125,

I don't think it was an incubus. However, the likelyhood of it being a demon is quite high. You could also be suffering from sleep paralysis and hallucinations as FRAWIN said.

My best advice is never play with ouiji boards, they are not toys, they are a waste of money and worst ofall they open portals which are very hard to close. Thank you for posting your story and sharing it with us, please write more, if any more experiences do occur. God bless you, deus vobiscum and take care.

I also have been attacked whilst meditating and had no idea what an incubus was until it happened to me. I thankfully was not raped but sex was initiated I shall explain.
I was meditating in my front room through a guided meditation CD that I was listening too through my tv. I finished meditating and was lying on the sofa when I felt a prescence standing above my head, WHOM I THOUGHT WAS MY HUSBAND. He asked me if I was going to bed in my husbands voice and I replied "shortly". The next thing was the incubus lay alongside me (although afterwards I realised there was no room for him to actually lie right next to me). And initiated sex I had strange feeling of excitement, but then the strangest thing happened, a tail like thing was trying to get between my legs and I pushed the thing off me) I sat up and my heart was beating sooo fast. I thought I must have been dreaming and went to stand up and as I did the wedding photo of me and my husband on the fireplace slid in slow motion off the side of the shelf and hit the floor smashing into small pieces but also in slow motion. I looked away to leave the room evidently scared and when I looked back the photo was not broken and where it was in the first place. I ran up stairs to tell my husband what had happened and noticed that it my daughters room there was a wardrobe in the middle of her floor. As we has a three storey house I attempted to get upstairs to my husband but the stairs although in reality are metal were in my minds eye rotten wood with climbing ivy and I was so scared. I haven't been able to meditate properly since.
Please tell me I'm not going mad!

are you sure? A Incubus is a Demon, and your a guy so it might be a Succubus. Cause a Incubus is a guy and if it would have sexual activity with you then it would be gay. 🤔

i hope that satisfied you, as you can see I'm not well edjucated on the stargate project. I only know what my father told me.

with the things I have experienced, sleep paralysis and O.B.E. And one more thing that I have never met or heard anyone else have. Well since everyone is a believer hear, becase alli can say they have eaxperienced sleep paralysis and these paranormal activities and OBE. When I was young at age 6 I had this thing to this day called the fast feeling. I still don't know what it is but I was able to hear and see you say things and see you movements b4 you did so. I haven't had this state of mind for four years. I'm afraid I lost it because I've been trying to ignore it. And now I regret it.

my father says I had potential for psychoactive activity but since I have tried to ignore it by trying to listen tomusic and TV. (this was so I can try to focus on something else, I believe I lost my chances of ever controlling it I wish I could of accpeted it and tried to control it.
he said that the reason it was so chaotic was probably because it was to much, and that everything was seapin out in large ammounts and was to much for me to handle. I dunt know. Just this stuff is to much for me to handle.

the brain is capable of amazing things...

so for everyone who has experienced these paranormal phonomenons, don't ignore it. Train it, learn how to control it

honestly ill tell you what he told me one day once I confronted him about my series of sleep paralysis.

my father was in the air force, and he was concerned and he eventually told me his passed in the air force (the other story)
he was originally in cryptology. And he told me how they gave these tests or whatever and I guess he scored really high, and then since then they moved him in some remote mountain location talkin about scivy nine and all these terms and how they would ever give him a answer becaseuse of the need to know policy, he said they completely isolated him from everyone he was tellin me stuff like how hes was one of the 23 remote viewers. He even mentioned about the stargate program, and something about goat labs. He told me he was able to pin point fugitives and find coordinates to hidden places, and how like he was able to walk in the astrial land. It was to much to believe but I know he wouldn't lie to me about it, because I saw it in his eyes. He told me his father had it 2. He was telling me it was accurate (according to him), and eventually ended after a couple years or so. He really didn't go into detail except told me also not to tell anybody, because they would think I was crazy. But until I read more on sleep paralysis, I was more convinced and finally when I had my first OBE I was convinced. And all this other insane stuff that I'm not going to get into.

but yes my dad was in the stargate project, and he says everyuthing you may read on about it in books and websites, aint even 1/ 10 of it. I guess there's all this other things they don't tell you about.
and my dad said "they treated us like lab rats".

I have to agree with FRAWIN on this one too. Sleep paralysis doesn't have to be a reoccurring event. I've only ever had it once before when I was about the age you were in your story. It has never happened again because I researched it soon after it happened and found out it was a part of REM and also found out how to prevent it from happening again.

I think it's highly probable that the reason this paralysis occurred was because you were feeling stressed/anxious about feeling like you were being watched/something was hovering near you and were trying to summon spirits. Also mixed into this would be the fact that you went to bed earlier than normal (this can promote sleep paralysis as well as napping). Our minds can play rather freaky tricks on us sometimes! 😉

Well of course it was sleep paralysis because I was paralyzed but that doesn't mean that it was not caused by an external force.

I think it must have been Popobawa, go wiki it. Haha maybe not but I couldn't help myself. I agree most likely sleep parylasis, which can cause hallucinations. You probably scared yourself whil using the bored and that fear followed you to bed, and what seemed like a blink to you was actually you abruptly waking up from REM sleep causing you not to be able to move, and to hallucinate. Or maybe it was Popobawa

I think I most agree with FRAWIN on this, Marcink, I would think this was an episode of sleep paralysis. I do, however, think you stirred up something with your use of the Ouija board. Fortunately, I think your attempt to reach someone who was bodily impaired failed, but your senses were warning you with these creepy feelings, and that is why you were looking over your shoulder and feeling as if someone were watching you.
I would say that you had a Sleep Paralysis episode.
Thank you.

I bought the new board from carnivalia(ebay store, they also have a separate online store). I just really admire their art-work.
It is a brand new board and has not been tainted in any way. And yes I agree with all of you and now know that nothing positive can come from using an ouija board, or at least the chances of something postive coming from using an ouija baord are very slim. Frawin, your explanation is a very rational non-paranormal conclusion as to what happenned to me but I read online that sleep paralysis usually happens several times a week over a long period of time( I only experienced paralysis that one time). Also The sheer coincidence of me using the ouija board on the same day that I had the paralysis and seeing the face is too much for me to ignore.

Sounds like sleep paralysis. If not, you may be in a world of suffering. That's also something people who have been posessed experience. It's probably a good idea to not have a ouija board at all... Period. That new one you got off of e-bay for the antique value... What kind of energy do you think it carries if the previous owners of such a beautiful piece got rid of it? I know that others have said things like this, but I just had to ask you again... Please stay away from ouija boards!

I am sorry, I feel the need to comment again.

In your response, you indidcated you bought a new board from e bay, but that you purchased it for mostly aesthetic value--something that strikes me as odd, it this item is hand made and wonderful, why is it being sold on e bay and what type of history might is carry with it?

Just a thought!
GOd Bless!

I agree with KimSouth, NEVER use an ouijia board, it's really dangerous and I'm not sure you'll contact a normal spirit.
But I have to disagree with the lord part, It didn't work for me to pray and all that, but the only way to get rid of my ghost was to face him and tell him that I was sick of him and that I had better things to do then to be afraid... But I'm not sure...
But keep us updated if anything more happens! 😁

Hello marcink. I found your story quite interesting. I will offer you another scenario to think about. You could have had an episode of sleep paralysis and with the idea of demons already in your mind it pulled it to the surface.I'm not saying that this is what happened,it's just something to think about. Take Care.

Thank you for all your comments!
After that incident I stopped playing with the parker brothers ouija board. Also, I have never had that intense feeling of someone watching and circling me since that day nor have I seen that being again. I try not to think of the face too much because I am afriad that I might summon it again, as if the face was some kind of calling card. Before the incident I seriously doubted the stories I read about reptilian beings and shadow people with red eyes, but now I know those beings exist. I did not see any shadows and I did not mistake anything in my room for a face. I really was paralyed and that thing was all too real. That being was literally in my subconscious. I have recently bought another ouija board on ebay but have not used it, but if I do I will make sure that I choose my words wisely. I realy bought the new board for aesthetic value since it is hand made and a wonderful piece of art.

Could you have possibly been dreaming or maybe just matrixing some shadows or other objects in the room into a face?

It's definatley not an incubus, because incubuses are sexual demons who prey on females. Succubuses are female demons who prey on men.

Ouija baords are dangerous I had an experienc with one and Never would I again. My story on here of one is"ouija board in the basement". I do believe when you yelled out was anything in the board, it let you know there was and what it was too. Do you still play with the ouija board?

Never, never, never ouijia boards! I realize they are sold as toys, but... Well they are the furthest things from toys that I can imagine. Once the portal is open, it is very difficult to close properly and who knows what enters through that portal, as you unfortunately found out.

Are you or have you had any other occurances in your home after this one? Are you still having the feelings of being watched and circled?

Tell 'it' to leave in the name of the Lord. Tell 'it' that 'it' is not welcome in your home and the Lord will protect and guide you in this! PLace a corss in each of the rooms (especially the bed rooms) at least one if not more. Pray, pray, pray! Pray out loud in your room where this occured. Take back the control.

Keep us posted!
God Bless!
