Scary Experience


Last night I was trying to fall asleep for like an hour or something and I couldn't fall asleep. When I started to doze off a little bit I heard a noise that sounded like a song, like a girl singing or something. I sat up and still heard the noise.

I thought it was my phone and I was going to answer it... but my ringtone is not the way this sounded. Immediately after I heard this I laid my head back down and closed my eyes to try to fall asleep again. Then, felt pressure on my chest and neck area. It was like I was being forced down to my bed and I couldn't move or sit up. I heard rustling at the foot of my bed like there was something or someone else in the room with me. It really scared me.

After that my head was forced down onto my pillow and my neck was turned all the way to the side almost forcing it around in a circle. I couldn't breathe or speak but I was scared out of my mind and had no idea what was going on. I could hear my sister in her room next to me so I'm assuming I wasn't asleep or dreaming. My blanket was pulled down a little too without me touching it and this freaked me out.

Anyone have anything to say about it? I don't know what to do but I'm scared to go to sleep tonight. Help!

well the other night I was in bed and I didn't know what to do my legs were stuck on the end of my bed turns out to be a boy of 13. His spirit was in my room he is friendly and talks to me all the time he says that he doesn't mind me talking to him and is going to stay for a while. The scary thing is he knew everything about me and wants to stay and now someone else has been talking to me too a boy called ben has been at my house too I was so scared at first but now they have become my friends and I am glad I found out when I did. And they will not hurt me they just want to be my friends

you might consider not sleeping with your head up, that's what they say in my country, that the old hag will get you if you sleep heads up... ❤

this sounds like textbook sleep paralysis. Its often pretty scary. I would rule this out before considering other options. As this is a once off I would be exceedingly surprised if there was any paranormal entities involved.

I believe that you might have a demon in your own home! Do you ever feel any hot spots? Try some sort of prayer. You might want to do some reserch in the house to see if anyone ever got strangled in that house or anything. Please keep us informed! 😁

page820-sorry that you feel so scared, I don't know what your religion is but try saying a pray and ask whatever is in your room to please leave-if you are more adventurous ask your visitor what it wants?

Wish I could help more-sorry
Keep me posted.

Well I believe that some things could be explained in a scietific way but I'm not so sure. It could have been sleep paralysis but I can't say that it was for sure. Have you had any other encounters? Thanks for sharring this story with us. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

Hello page820, your story was very frightening. In order to defend yourself I advise that you buy the following and have them blessed:
- Benedictine medal,
- Rosary,
- holy water,
- holy salt and,
- bible (optional)

In case you are not a Christian, I also have another method, buy a stick of sage and light it whilst chanting and praying. It will cleanse the house. If this does not work, contact me (contact details are in my profile) I believe I may offer some help. I pray that you will solve this problem and be freed from the evil in your room. God bless, deus vobiscum and take care. Your story is very thrilling. If you have any more encouters, I encourage you to write and post it, if you don't mind. Thank you.

I have had nearly the same situation. Some people call it sleep paralysis. That would be the scientific explainaiton for it. Supposedly your mind wakes up before your body does and all types of weird things happen. You can't move, you can't speak and you are suppose to experience visual illusions at times. Then there is the religious explaination. Which is literally a demon attacking you. Which is what I believe it is. My experience was very similar to yours except I saw a black human like thing on top of me actually choking me and another pitch black object sitting in my chair next to my bed. I'm not sure if you're a religious person but it always goes away after I start praying. This of course is just my method. Good luck.

Whoa! You definitely had a scary experience! According to me, it was sleep paralysis or a ghost. If you don't know the meaning of sleep paralysis, go to wikipedia and search for Sleep Paralysis. Hope I was of any help!
