First of all, I'd like to greet everyone on this site since I am a new member. However, I've been visiting this site for several months now, reading the stories and accumulating a great interest in the supernatural.
Now, what brings me here is the fact that I too have been experiencing a weird phenomenon. Some call it sleep paralysis, but because I'm usually awake when it happens, I feel as if I'm in a state of paralysis caused by my spirit leaving my body assuming that I am asleep. (Sounds weird right?...but that's the only way I can explain it.) I'll begin with my story now...
It was 2006 and my sister Maggie and her husband Tim were living in an apartment. I lived with my parents but almost every weekend, I would stay with my sis Maggie and her husband. They had a two-bedroom apartment and no kids so I'd always sleep in the guest bedroom.
I believe it was early Saturday morning when I woke up feeling a little disoriented. I was half asleep but I was still able to visualize the elements of dream. The element of a dream which I am speaking of was a white object and when the object had come into a clearer focus, I realized it was a note on which my handwriting was appearing.
All right, I know this sounds very weird but I am telling the incident exactly as it happened. Okay, it gets even weirder.
It was as if I was writing the note subconsciously but was also aware of my surroundings on the outside and yes my eyes were open. Suddenly, something interrupted the visualization (if I can call it that), and at that moment I was completely awake for I felt a presence in the bedroom with me.
Fear quickly rushed over me, and I became paralyzed and unable to move. I tried to turn my head but was unable to so I began to utilize my peripheral vision and noticed a dark figure standing next to the bed. I was thinking to myself, "Now, what or who the heck is that?"
The figure stood there, still as a statute as if it were expecting something from me. Though the figure was dark, I could kind of make out a body shape and I even saw that it had sort of long hair for a male. (I could sense that it was a male for some reason) The freaky thing was the fact that he was staring at me and I couldn't even see any eyes: I just knew that he was staring... And waiting.
At that moment, I mustered up all the courage I could and said (in a very weak voice) "GET AWAY FROM ME." Then, as if things couldn't get any worse, his head came off and began bouncing around me strategically as if by his will.
I didn't feel the head bouncing on me, but I definitely saw it, for better description, it was like a head of a shadow equivalent in density as well since I was unable to feel it.
After a while of being bounced on by his head, the figure disappeared and I had the ability to move again. I got up from the bed, scared out of my mind and trying to make sense of what had just happened. I didn't mention it to my sister or brother-in-law considering the fact that I might freak them out. (For goodness sake, they had to live there!)
I've only told a few people about that experience and now you all have been added to the list. Thanks for reading and please feel free to comment and ask questions.
