My Sleep Paralysis Demon


This happened a few years ago.

I went to bed, and I always left my laptop on so I can have a bit of light. Anyways I went to sleep and I woke up suddenly because this demon thing was sitting by my side and holding me up from my pillow... The light from the laptop was shining on his facial features but I couldn't make out his face. He had skeletal features and was bald... It was trying to kiss me and I was so scared that I started to chant the angels names to come help me and I could feel the demon getting angry and he rose his hand to slap me (he had long bony fingers) and just before it slapped me I snapped out of it and was drenched in sweat... I turned on the light but I could still feel his presence but it eventually went away... After that I slept with the lights on I called my friend to tell him about it he was freaked out!

I haven't had one like that in awhile; I'm always getting pulled off my bed or someone holding me down... Sometimes I will see shadows but nothing that scary like that one night.

Another time as I was waking up, I saw a shadow person walk backwards out of my bedroom... But I didn't feel scared at all. I don't see shadow people or shadow cats much anymore... Wish I could see them more often.

Hope you liked my little story, I got a few more to post!

I wish I could see the shadows more often, too. In the past I had the ligths open when I was sleeping but now I am not afraid of sleep paralisis

😨 Hello, I'm going to tell you my experience. I used to believe that demons and ghosts werent real but last night changed me. I was very skeptical and I'm 15 years old by the way. So last night I was having a dream that I was in my school at night and people were there but the lights were off and there was wind inside the school. Then I started throwing up in my dream and I woke up. When I woke up I felt like my blanket started getting very heavy and I couldn't move. I tried to move but I couldnt, I felt tingilly all over and the weight felt weird, Then I remember Something breathing like, Hmmmmm but it sounded like that movie the Exocist or something. At this point It felt like PURE EVIl whatever was on top of me felt evil very evil and I was thinking HOLY s**t wtf is this. Then all I remember was being more scared than anything ever and I started thinking for god to save me and after 7 seconds It went away and I jumped up from my bed turned on my lamp and started running. I know this was real cause I was awake and started moving exactly after the thing left. I went to my dads room and we started praying together. I don't want to sleep again tonight last night I remembe thinking If that thing tries that again I'm going to snap it. But can we even fight these things? I'm scared now. I will try recording this if it happens again tonight. Sleep paralysis is B.S. Why can't scientists wake up and realize we need GOD 😕? I'm doing some serious praying now. I will pray for you too

wow that would be freaky! Come to think of it I haven't seen very many shadow people in awhile either. I think it is cool that someone else has seen shadow cats, because I have seen quite a few of them.

its not sleep paralysis if you can move... I would know I have it. But it is a sleep disorder. And that shadow you saw walking out of your room was probably part of it. Your not fully awake when you wake up and the sleep disorder you have might still be playin tricks on your mind... But who know about this stuff.

dang! That's freaky! One time my cousin and I slept on a bed together and I remember I was really tired! And during the night, she kept grabbing my arm and screaming my name! I thought she was just playing around, and I told her to shut up and let me sleep! Lol, that next morning she was crying, and she said she saw some shadow person holding her down...yeah, but your story is weird
