| | Ghostly experience of sleep paralysis? Help!
I'm new to this forum so go easy on me. Basically the reason behind me posting this is due to a weird experience I had in the early hours of this morning.
After watching a film I retired to my bed where I tossed and turned. I never really felt I was sleeping and seemed to drift in and out of lucidness. During one such period I felt something clamber onto my bed. I assumed it was my cat who often comes and goes throughout the night. I was lying on my front when this happened and soon became aware due to the level of activity clambering on my bed and the different directions of where pressure was being applied on the mattress that this was not my cat....
My room had been exceedingly stuffy all night but suddenly and as if someone had opened a window wide open I felt as if a an icy breeze was washing over me. I started to panic and tried to lift myself up off my front. I couldn't do it, it was as if someone was lying on top of my back. As i tried to force myself up the "person" lying ontop of me said "Don't". Panicking I tried to scream but nothing would come out until I managed to stifle the sort of "Argh!" that comes from a severely retarded adult. This seemed to bring me alive again and I felt the pressure on top of me lift and a bizarre but almost pleasent sensation of warmth on my bottom. I did not move for a minute as I was frightened to turn round. I reached for my cat who was sleeping peacefully to the side of me. There was noone there.
My friend told me once about her experience of sleep paralysis where she had woken up 2 minutes before her body had and she couldnt move or speak nd felt encompassed by fear. I'm not sure if this explains what happened or not. I felt someone on top of me, i felt cold, I heard them talk to me.
Can anyone help shed any light on this?
