I am a 29 year old male and the past few years I have had some strange experiences when I go to sleep. I had unexplainable things happen to me since I was about 7 years old. Sometimes I have really great experiences and other times downright fearful. About 3-4 times a month or more or less... I am prone to feeling like something is in my room and trying to interact with me. I've never seen it until tonight... Its 12:25am about 40 minutes after my experience and I tried to read online about what I saw to see if there was anything about it.
Here I am.
Now sometimes I when I feel something is in my room or around I can never see it. I just get a malevolent feeling as if something is there to try to do harm to my being in some way. It feels as if it's pushing into me and I fight very hard to awaken... And I am filled with a feeling of fear. At times I often find it hard to fall back asleep and it may occur 2-3 more times as I try to fall asleep... When this happens I will try to sleep with the light on... But to no avail... It either will stop on its own or not... I have even had this occur during the daytime hours of the morning. Time of day does not matter nor amount of light. This happens to me quite frequently since I was a kid. Sometimes even what's classified as night terrors occurs in me... Where I have intense fear and scream and have an episode where I have no recollection of an experience... Just a remembrance of intense fear.
As of lately... Like the last year or so... I have had GOOD experiences similar but more intense than this. It sometimes feels as if something GREAT... I describe it as EUPHORIA... Not fear is trying to take a hold of me. Often at times this feeling gets SO intense that I don't want to wake up... But I have to because I can't stand it... Its gets more and more intense the longer it lasts... It's almost like falling down a rollercoaster... In terms of the butterfly feeling in the stomach but way more euphoric... At first it didn't last long... But I could hold the feeling... The good feeling in me longer and longer... As it happened more frequently... I would know I was asleep at least somewhat at the time... But I'm not in deep sleep... This occurs about 20-30 minutes after I first try to fall asleep... Now as I got better at holding this good feeling in me... I would start to feel energy radiating from my hands and arms... Vibration if you will... It feels very powerful... Like I could shoot lighting or move mountains with my hands... Well tonight I got that feeling and I was able to open my eyes while experiencing this... I saw waves around my hands and as I breathed it went past the waves it looked like smoke... A stream of it billowing out from my mouth... Like mist... And it looked like heat waves from my hands... Like how heat bends light waves... And I was able to see my mirror across from my bed and I saw a dark figure in my room... Couldn't see the face... But it was hooded. This led to intense fear... I mean I could see my TV on... My hands shaking and vibrating before this, waves and smoke, mist everything... Then the figure in my mirror... Then I got scared and tried to awaken or snap out o it... Whatever you want to say... I'm partially crying writing this... This isn't a dream this is an EXPERIENCE
I can recall vividly an accurately and it fits the MO of everything strange that happens to me at night... I know it's not a ghost in my house... This happens TO ME... In lots of places I have slept... But this is the first time I have seen the figure... I know I'm not crazy... I'm very in control of myself and my life... But I feel when I am asleep maybe I am more vulnerable or able to be influenced somehow by something... I would love some input because the other stuff I can dismiss as sleep paralysis or brainwave crap that happens in the first 30 minutes of sleep... But now it just got a whole lot real... My eyes were open this time I witnessed it all...
