A ghost invaded my room and tried to attack me.


Recommended Posts

Documented case here. Last night while sleeping, I heard something drop in my bedroom. My folks heard it too. However, there was something menacing about that drop that sort of gave me the shivers when I heard it.

 

Earlier that night, the blinds were partially open, and I made sure to close them fearing that something may see me outside (i.e. a hovering UFO beaming a light through the window -- while I've never seen a UFO I always have this fear in the back of my mind after seeing this clip from youtube known as Brazil Roswell: ,

where scenerios like that actually did happen in a remote fishing village in Brazil back in the 1970's -- or there are stories of invisible UFO's that hover about in the city).

 

Later in the night, I heard that noise. Then thought nothing of it and was sleeping. I dreamed my mother came into the room while I was typing on my laptop computer and told me to stop typing on it. She took away the laptop. Then she suddenly came back in and tried to spank me. I felt something very weird or unnatural that didn't belong there and yelled out a bit Jesus in my sleep, or felt I should call on Jesus rather than yell out.

 

Next I felt sleep aggressively coming on me and felt paralyzed. When I felt going into a deep sleep, this same entity, which I believed was my mother, came into my room at full force and tried to spank me for something I did wrong. She was also calling on the name of Jesus to drive out the spirits. This time, I realized I was drifting off in some weird world, and gave out this blood-curdling scream. The scream duration was 10 seconds.

 

My folks woke up from the other room. My mother was shaken for hours after that scream. She was lying on bed all during this time and I had a nightmare, or some ghost masquraded as her. (Laptop was in office not at home, and bed in the dream was a former bed that was thrown into the garbage and facing a different direction to this current bed).

 

When I was asking about my mother, or what was going on, my mother confirmed she heard some weird noises coming from my room shortly before the scream. While talking, I felt goosebumps, or a creepy, silvery cold feeling down my body from my head to my spine.

 

I stayed awake for an hour fearing to back to sleep. Eventually, I slept, and whatever was in my room had left. I was in a disturbed state of mind.

 

************

 

Prior to this I believe I was saying things against God before going to bed, saying that God had not answered my prayer, but was teasing me by making false answers to prayer happen to get my hopes up just to see it dash away before my very eyes --- and I was saying that I have nothing to be thankful about. I also looked at pornography on the computer.

 

It's believed the above is the cause of the incident -- I have a problem with blasphemy sometimes and with lust. I also broke up with my gf from Haity (vodoo country).

 

Then, that same evening, something didn't feel right as I lay in bed. Sort of a feeling this would be an unusual night.

 

*************

 

This is documented here and on a diary. If anyone has had any sort of paranormal incident, and also wants to update this thread, or have experienced an attack or something, but fought it off -- in Jesus' name, or however you dealt with it, feel free to update and share your exerience.

It could have been a night terror where your dreaming but it feels mega real. I've had that paralysed suffocaing feeling before and thought I've experienced people walking around my room when they werent there.

 

The mind is a powerful thing.

 

And I dont think its you being punished.

 

The noises could have been you thrashing around in your sleep/

That video was pretty disturbing.

 

Sorry you experienced this. I would've freaked out, as well.

 

How long after you fell asleep did this "dream" occur?

 

Trying to remember, I would say that it I had difficulty trying to catch sleep last night. It was one of those nights where I'm into sleep and out of sleep. So, I can't clearly recall, how far into the sleep the dream occurred.

 

What I can remember is that I heard something, and sort of drifted to sleep afterwards and then something happened.

 

My mother estimates there was a 20 minute duration between the eerie sound inside my bedroom to my blood curtling scream, if that helps any. I believe there was some sort of semi-sleep, interspersed with that nightmare, with the duration of the same time before I screamed.

Could it be possible that you sleepwalk?

 

I know it sounds like a stupid question, but most people who sleepwalk aren't aware of it unless they eventually find proof.

There is no sleepwalking incidents that I'm aware of. Certainly no history of that in my life.

Suspecting Hypnagogic Hallucination?

 

While I do believe there are forces we do not fully comprend, and I do believe in God, I also know that often times, there are good old down to earth, non-supernatural explanations for most of the the things we experience.

 

Luke, you've mentioned on other threads that you are having a lot of problems at work on top of breaking up with your gf. This is on top of any other issues that you haven't mentioned here and/or you posted but I didn't happen to read. A mix of stress, worry, guilt and whatever-all-else is swirling around your head is enough to bring on vivid dreams and some weird experiences.

 

Now, if it somehow makes you feel better to think you're dealing with other-worldly things and if you follow some sort of cleansing ritual or say the right prayers that will call down some divine intervention, then do that.

 

You can also achieve the same result by chalking it up to your brain going on overload trying to deal with everything that's happening to you right now and focusing on ways to reduce your stress level and finding ways to handle the crises in the different areas of your life.

 

I'm sure there are folks here who'd be happy to give you concrete suggestions for either mindset. I'd suggest to pick one view and try it and if it's not bringing you any peace of mind, switch gears to the other mindset and see if that works.

I think viewing pornography and masturbating could have been the effective cause of this. I remember, some past occurances where I did that, I would have a disturbed state of mind where I would feel afraid of falling asleep, or be a bit more paranoid than usual. The last time I viewed porn (relapse) was on May 29, 2009. I viewed porn yesterday as I caved into life pressures.

 

The type of porn were simply clothed or semi-nude local escorts that live 5 minutes away from here and charging rather cheap prices. I masturbated about seeing one of them and feeling good afterwards (i.e. 'imaginary free-by'). I didn't look at anything particulary disturbing and usually have not succumbed to anything looking at that - but I can't rule it out either.

 

Perhaps, talking against God (blasphemy - frustration with life and feeling my prayers were not being answered) may have resulted in the Lord teaching me a lesson by allowing a ghost to attack me in my sleep and showing me how vulnerable I am without His protection as a warning shot? Without His protection I could be torn about by devils, so the angels have to be around to stand guard to ensure I sleep well.

A ghost entered your room and attacked because god was mad for looking at porn and didn't protect you from the voodoo curse that your newly ex-girlfriend put on you...

 

or

 

...you're feeling stressed so you forgot to close your curtains last night, were tossing and turning in your sleep and kicked something that made a sound, and then had a bad dream.

Read and understood. It could be that.

 

How would it account for something falling into the room, which my mom heard, and also felt that this object falling down was somehow unnatural or gave chills on her spine. (i.e. I may have moved in my bed and droped an object, but there was a particularly eerie and creepy feeling my mom felt when she heard it drop, and I had the same feeling too, and I don't think I was moving).

 

Or, how would this particular blood-curdling scream, which shook up my mother for hours as she also shaking in her body, be a normal scream - which usually doesn't affect anyone. It was like there was something very eerie and creepy about those noises.

 

However, since these appear to be occurring at the outset of sleep, or drifting into sleep, it appears to be true too. My mother however, also reported feeling some weird entity was in the house and heard a scream afterwards.

 

I'll have to interview my father later, but he just said he heard the scream, and was asleep prior to that and afterwards.

You had a nightmare; nothing less, nothing more. You had a classic fear response, including goosebumps and a scream. You know that your mother wasn't actually in the room, you know that the laptop wasn't actually in the room. Your mother heard noises, which most likely were you. There's nothing paranormal here, it's a perfectly standard nightmare scenario.

While I believe in God, I don't believe this is it.

 

I think your paranoia & stressful thoughts are starting to control your mind.

 

When my father died 4 years ago, it's sad to say, but I was scared of seeing his ghost. When I'd go to bed at night, I'd close my eyes really tight & wouldn't open them once until I fell asleep.

 

While I was falling asleep, I'd hear faint sounds, & sometimes I'd open my eyes for a split second out of fear, & I'd see a shadow move or something.

 

I told my mom about this problem, & she suggested that I hang a cross above my bed.

 

Again, while I believe in God, I also believe in manipulating the mind. Although the cross hanging above my head may have given me spiritual healing, I believe it was the mental peace that really did it.

 

KNOWING there was a cross above my head made me feel safe. It made me feel like nothing would happen to me.

 

After hanging the cross, I got over this paranoia.

 

As dumb as it may sound, maybe you can try something similar. Just like children have a teddybear or a blanket they sleep with at night, because it makes them feel safe from monsters or the boogieman or whatever.

Okay, I`m subscribing to the belief that what I experienced was probably normal, and nothing signfiicant. I`ll keep a monitor to see if it happens again. However, if you look at the historical meaning of `nightmare `, then it`s historical defination incidentally involves some demonic spirit that is called a `Hag`. This spirit will take the form of a woman and torment someone who is sleeping.

 

This is exactly what happened with me. Maybe this `Hag`took the form of my mother. Maybe there is some truth in this folklore defination of nightmare. link removed I believed I was attacked by an òld Hag last night.

 

Well, at least I`ve learned about the history of the term Nightmare, and have had the real experience of one. Do other people concur that the folklore defination has some truth, or nightmares are really the attack of this old hag spirit.

I have had nightmares, and I have also had the sleep paralysis/hypno thing. They are not simply nightmares and can be quite scary, so I can sympathize with you there. Yes, I suspect you are normal, but these things usually stem from either chronic sleep problems, change of sleep habits or anxiety. If these experiences persist, you might try to figure out what is causing them.

I have dreams all the time, but I can recall this one "dream" I had once that freaks me out til today.

 

It was really similar to yours.

 

It was around 11pm, I got in bed. I was laying there with my eyes open, staring out my bedroom door. My mom was still awake in her bathroom getting ready for bed. All the lights were already off, except for the one in her bathroom that was peeking through the bottom of the door. (I fell asleep right after this...)

 

Next thing I knew, my mom was slowly walking up to my bed, with a scary look on her face. She jumped up on my bed & started attacking me. She had this monstrous look on her face that scared the HELL out of me.

 

I jumped up & opened my eyes, & my mom was standing there, by my bed, trying to wake me up from my nightmare.

 

The first second I opened my eyes, I looked at my mom & my automatic reaction was to step back (because I couldn't separate nightmare from reality, at this point).

 

After some hugs & sweet words, I calmed down...but that is the FREAKIEST dream I've had byyyy far.

 

The scariest part was that I didn't REMEMBER falling asleep. My transition from reality to dream was SO quick, which is weird because it usually takes about 30 minutes for me to fall asleep.

Thank you PsychGirly for sharing your story on my thread here.

 

The only thing that is different, is there is some distortion in my memory within the nightmare as to whether my mother had tried to come into my room to spank me, or whether my mother came into my room to try and help me from another spririt that came into my room and pleaded Jesus out loud to ward off the spirit.

 

Discussing this with a friend at church - the friend suggested that the Lord raised my mother's spiritual body with an angel to go into my room and fight off the evil spirit that tried to attack me and the reason my mother was shaking was because my mom's spirit was displaced to fight the evil spirit before being returned back. In reality, I don't know if my mom was the bad person in the dream, or if she was the good person fighting of the spirit, or if there were 'two spiritual mothers' in the room, one good (real mother) and a bad spirit masquarding as my mother. (Sort of like the Terminator 2 - the metal terminator imitating Sarah Connor at the end to lure John, while the real Sarah Connor shoots this other termintor to protect her son).

 

Whatever happened -- whether it can be explained by science, which I'm satisfied that there is a scientific explanation behind what I experienced, plus collaboration on here that what was experienced was normal -- or whether it was some spiritual war that involved devils, angels, and my mother's spirit calling on the name of Jesus to ward of the devils that attempted to destroy me in my sleep -- is something I guess is to be left to speculation.

 

Personally, because of Psychgirl's explanation, and the scientific explanation that I'm seeing here has some credence with me that what I experienced was normal and is simply some sort of nightmare or hallucination that occurred because I went to sleep in some disturbed mind that was under allot of stress. I think supernatural angles or explanations simply add more drama to this and could contribute to a problem by having more variables to be disturbed about and therefore contributing to the stress if really believed as a threat everytime I'm going to sleep.

 

It's best probably, as PsychGirl said, to read a scripture verse, or have some sort of spiritual symbol around that reminds me that God is around -- and pray prior to sleeping. However, I've noticed that when I go to sleep with a disturbed mind that I'm susceptible to certain things happening -- such as nightmares, or night terrors.

 

 

Another thing that was overlooked was a whole bag of corn chips was consumed prior to going to sleep. According to the nightmare defination, if you eat food prior to sleeping, that triggers brain activity and the body's metabolism -- so I would see that as a factor in what also happened.

I have reviewed the following youtube clips -- which by the way, are not made by religious sources -- which suggest that sleep paralysis (what I experieced on this thread), puts you into a state of altered conciousness where it's possible you may be vulnerable to a supernatural attack or assault.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Usually, this is supposed to stop after age 25 in the stats, however, I'm 33 y/o.

 

The common theme in these 'scientific' studies is that there is really something there because the experiences are too intense.

 

What is suggested is to be strong in faith. Pray before sleeping, study the Bible, and to be connected with God in general.

 

If these videos are looked at, and you are satisifed it is a secular video (not a religious one, so it's not biased to show any particular view-point), then you'll see that sleep paralysis has a strong supernatural component which can not be explained away from the medical community. Prevalence is too high to argue it is psychosis or anything like that.
