I had a strange case of sleep paralysis today. I know what the symptoms are and I know when it is happening to me but something was very different about today's experience. I was lying down on my stomach in my bed and I felt my body being filled with a buzzing static. Since I couldn't move I was just laying still waiting to see if I could wake up eventually. Behind me, I could just barely see a very bright light in the window but I couldn't turn around to look at it. I thought that maybe it was there to help me but then it dimmed.
At that point, I felt a vibration in my head and a feeling of fear. I remember asking God to have mercy (I am not a religious person) but to no avail. At this point, the static sensation is very intense but then I hear a child's voice say a word. I heard it again but I don't know what he or she said. Then I feel like something it cutting into the back of my head, although it does not hurt. I hear something that sounds like a saw and I feel the buzzing in the back of my head. Then, out of the static a voice tells me " you're going to die Annie".
I have had sleep paralysis many times before but usually I do not see or hear anything, which is why I have learned not to be scared, even if I feel a presence. This is the first time I have heard anything talk to me and it knows my name nonetheless. I feel like something telling me that I am going to die is very threatening. This is different than a dream, this is a state of mind that is awake while the body is asleep, leaving oneself vulnerable to often terrifying visions and sensations.
If anyone has had sleep paralysis maybe you can help me understand this.
