The night before last I went to bed at 12am and had a little trouble falling asleep although I was very tired. I must have completely drifted off because all of a sudden I woke up to (now this sounds odd) a pressure on my face especially lips as if someone is kissing me. Now that I was completely awake I let my brain try to figure out what may be going on. I had a strong tingling sensation throughout my entire body, there is a wave of energy flowing from my head to my toes, my arms felt heavy as if someone was holding them down, and actually it felt like someone was lying on top of me. I did not feel scared or in danger, although I was puzzled on what could be happening and was more in shock than anything. I am sure it was only seconds, though it felt longer, when I thought "Stop!" And all of a sudden the heaviness lifted and the tingling subsided. I wondered how long I had been asleep, but to my surprise it was 12:43 am, only 43 minutes.
This is the first time anything like this has happened to me, but I have had paranormal experiences before and immediately felt a presence when this occurred. So I started doing some research and the first piece of related information was the story by summerrain titled 'Something or someone pinning me down?' Summerrain said their friend suggested it could be sleep paralysis (SP). That led me to do research on that explanation. However, my experience does not quite seem to fit under the description of SP.
If it was SP then I have a scientific explanation, however it just doesn't feel right.
If anyone has any input I would be very grateful.
