Like many other encounters, mine happened during the time in which I am awaking from sleep, or when I am wide awake. I live in an apartment in Houston, Texas, with a couple of family members. I am not the only one within the house that weird things have happened to. I would like to start with my dad's encounter.
I have suspicions about the closet in my room and tend to not go in it unless there is someone else in my room with me. It wasn't that long ago that I was in my brother's room playing video games and everyone was in the living room except for my dad, who was in my restroom shaving. If one stands at the right angle with the restroom door open, one can look at most of my room, and this was what my dad was doing, looking at my room through the mirror.
According to him he saw something pass through the room as if going to the closet; however, he thought nothing of it, thinking it was me. After noticing that I or whatever it is that he saw not come back from the closet he searched for me or again the weird human like form in the closet. He said that once he stepped into the closet he got cold and got chills all over his body. In disbelief he went to the living room and asked for me, to see if I wasn't playing a prank on him, my brother told him I was in his room the whole time. At this time I heard all the commotion and went to the living room only to find my dad really pale. That's my dad's encounter that relates to me and my story.
Many of my terrifying encounters have happened while I am still lying down in my bed. I am a naturally curious person and tend to experiment with things. For a while now I've been thinking about coming out of my body as a soul and what not. But some of the encounters happened before those thoughts crossed my mind. The first one that I can remember happened about a year ago, about 3 am or so. I woke up looked at the clock, saw the television on, saw the room door open and heard and saw my dad pacing around, he sometimes suffers from indigestion.
I was beginning to go back to sleep when all of a sudden I felt wind blow across my body. I tried to move but couldn't, I try to say something but couldn't. I told myself to relax that it was all right, I looked at the wall to calm me down, I sleep on the far side of the bed looking away from the closet. I was beginning to calm down and then I felt someone lay down next to me, the bed on the other side sunk, knowing that sometimes my mom comes sleep with me, I thought it was her. I turned around with my eyes closed and I was surprised that I could move, so I opened my eyes, but the bigger surprise was that there was no one there.
All of a sudden I couldn't move again. Now I am in the middle of the bed laying face up. My body then sinks into bed as if being pushed down. At this point I'm terrified trying to scream so my dad can hear me. Then all of a sudden my body from my waist to my shoulder starts to rise, no longer being pushed down but as if floating. I remembered reading somewhere that to protect yourself from some ghost you should try to imagine yourself in an energy bubble and so I did. After three seconds I was left alone. That was the end of that encounter, but the times when I wake up and can't move continued to happen, including now.
The reason I'm writing this now is because of what happened to me this morning, at 9 am while my mom was in the room. She was talking to me so I was wide awake. I was tired so I was going back to sleep but for a while I thought about separating from my body. In my mind I thought: I want to do it, please let me do it. I closed my eyes and all of a sudden I felt something rush towards me, it came from the closet area. Again I also felt wind rushing me.
Keep in mind that my mom is still in the room. I'm like no, not again. So I try to move but can't, and then start to feel as if I'm coming out of my body but I'm still awake looking at the wall, and then out of nowhere I feel a warm mantle cover my body as if someone is putting a hot blanket over me and then my body gets pushed down into the bed. My back begins to feel weird. I'm lying faced down looking at the wall. My whole body feels hot and I hear weird murmurs.
I can move my fingers but that's it, I can mumble but can't say complete loud words. My mom hears my mumbles and looks at me, I'm looking at her but I'm also looking at the wall as if double vision. She turns pale. She asks me if I called her I mumble yes. She looks frightened, but I can't see what's happening to my body. She goes towards the closet area and grabs something I feel my body beginning to get wet. I also feel my body begin to shake. Everything goes dark and seconds later I find myself moving and gasping for air and hear my mom saying a prayer and putting holy water all over the room and house.
She told me I was shaking, and that I was moving my legs. I don't remember that, or what happened after she put holy water on me. It's a blur. She won't tell me anything. I'm left astounded by the experience and wondering what the warm mantle like feeling was. I want to know what that thing that I felt rushing to me was, to me it seemed like a rushing dog or a person that is running, I don't know. I'm left confused about why I felt a weird sensation on my back as if someone was sitting on me. Up until this time I keep on seeing things out of the corner of my eyes.
