I do not know if these descriptions are that of paranormal doing or extremely lifelike dreams.
The first time I experienced anything was in 2005. I was staying with my brother on the Isle of Wight at the time sleeping on his bedroom floor. On the night in question I had returned home after work at about 2am, and was enjoying a good night's sleep until I felt something on my back (I was lying on my stomach). This thing wasn't heavy, but it was there, I thought at first it was 1 of our cats. After a while I felt scratching on my back, it seemed to get deeper like it was clawing through the flesh, now distressed I tried to call my brother, no sound came out, this causing me to try to open my eyes and move but this was to no avail. When I eventually managed to open my eyes there was nothing. No cat in sight and doors and windows fully closed.
My second encounter came 4 years later, I had rented a flat in Livingston, West Lothian as I had moved there due to work. This time I was flat sharing with a friend. Again it happened at night after I had finished work. However this time it was no cat or animal. This was of a human figure. Again enjoying a good night's sleep when I felt someone lean over me and put their full weight on me. This being had the covers held tightly over my face and spoke these words 'move or try to call for help and your dead' I was frozen stiff, eyes open, next thing a felt a sharp stabbing pain in my face as if I had just been stabbed, I quickly managed to pull the covers from covering my face. Again... Nothing there.
I don't know if these have been dreams or if they have happened, however I now work in a hotel that has been proven to be haunted, and occasionally I feel a presence at which my head buzzes, I get disorientated and feel dizzy. All three of which occurred during the encounters described...
Can anyone shed some light?
