For those of you who have already had a “Sleep Paralysis Experience” once, or a multitude of times; I’m sure you’ll be able to relate with this post. For those who have never experienced this unexplainable phenomena before, let me share with you my own personal Sleep Paralysis experience that happened roughly 30 minutes into the New Years (January 1, 2017 @ 12:30 A.M).
When it comes to Sleep Paralysis I feel like a majority of people who have either experienced it and/or heard of it only think of it as some form of sleep deprivation. Perhaps, a chemical imbalance that happens in the brain as our body makes the grand attempt to fully induce itself into a sleeping state. But then there are those, such as myself, who believe Sleep paralysis to be something much deeper. And by deeper I mean, a paranormal experience having something to do with the spirit realm. One important thing I would like to include in this post is a very interesting article I came across online titled “What does the BIBLE say about Sleep Paralysis?” posted by PropheciesofRevelation.org (11 Nov. 2016).
So going back to my story, prior to New Years even happening, my grandparents held a nye party at their house and friends and family were invited. I was beyond tired as I had a very stressful week and was not feeling up to being in a party mood. I felt mentally drained, lethargic, overall just very tired. So I actually passed out on one of the beds in an unoccupied bedroom while everyone else ranted and hollered in the background to bring in the New Years. After the 10 second countdown to bring in New Years day, I immediately passed out into what I would describe as, “a dark abyss“. Now mind you, I did not have a single drop of liquor/alcohol as I personally do not drink. I also do not partake in drugs of any sort. So to quickly draw the conclusion by blaming the cause on any mind-altering substances for this experience, would be unnecessary.
Roughly 30 minutes after 12:00 midnight into New Years day, I opened my eyes and looked at the clock that read exactly “12:30” and I made the instinctive attempt to get out of bed and use the restroom- but to my surprise, I literally could not move a single muscle in my body. In fact, the only muscle I could move were my eyes. At this very moment, it did not fully register to me what exactly was going on. However, I can assure you 300% that this was not some sort of lucid dreaming experience. I have had numerous lucid dreaming experiences and I am pretty sure I could decipher the difference. The strange thing about all this is that I was fully aware that I was awake and my eyes were wide open, I just could not move my body whatsoever. I also remember being in a state of deafness and not being able to hear anything going on throughout the rest of the house.
A few seconds later, I looked up at the ceiling and felt a large, weight being pressed down upon me. It felt as if someone took a large, marble slab that I could not see; and just placed it on top of my body. Or an unknown force pinning my body down to the bed. Now while experiencing this, again, I could not move my body whatsoever- I could not even open my mouth to speak. I couldn’t even attempt to flex my muscles. All my motor skills in my body were just shut down except for my eyes. All I could do was just continue looking up at the ceiling and shifting my eyes in despair, wondering what the hell was going on. What happened next is what really freaked me out. On one side of the bed, I literally felt the comforter sheet being ‘PULLED’ and ‘TUGGED’ repeatedly in a very fast, forceful motion. The sheet itself did not move and I never saw it move, I only FELT this happening. A few seconds later I remember saying these words in my head, “Lord please save me from this…” and then I blinked my eyes and when I opened my eyes, it all stopped immediately. I remember moving my head and shaking my body to confirm that the experience was done and over with. My entire body was sweating, and when I looked back at the clock, it still read “12:30AM”. I did not even get out of bed to use the restroom like I had originally planned. I was so terrified and stunned at what happened, that it took a moment for my brain to even process it all. It’s almost as if I completely forgot even coming into the room and falling asleep in the first place. Like I lost track of time. I knew that this had to have been some sort of paranormal, demonic experience.
Now some of you who are reading this might assume that I am loony beyond belief. But please believe me when I say that this a real, actual and honest experience that I had. In fact, millions of people around the world have personally witnessed this so for me to make this up on my own would be erroneous. I have been a victim of numerous experiences similar to this one that have occurred in my life, tracing all the way back to my childhood. The last time I experienced this particular paranormal phenomena was a few years ago back in 2013 when I was going through a dark period of deep depression. But back during that time, it actually happened to me numerous times on a nightly basis. But even during that period of depression, It was nowhere near as terrifying as this recent experience. Like I mentioned earlier in this post, if you’ve ever been a victim of Sleep Paralysis, you know EXACTLY what I am talking about. If you have never experienced this before, I’m sure you’ll experience this at least once in your lifetime. But one thing I can say for certain is that I myself did not posess the strength to pull myself out of it. I had to call on the divine force to lift the dark veil that was placed upon me so that I can be saved. I do this every single time, and the divine force has never failed me. Not even once. As it has never failed many others…
