I use to experience this stuff.. The last one was even last week

But there is one that was so fearful... I could remember that I saw my self being dragged by my leg on rough ground.. And I could clearly remember the voice telling me.. "Shaybi u like sin, I will teach you lesson" .. I couldn't move in bed.. The more I try to move the more it was hard for me to move, at last a thought came to me, why not call on Jesus and ask for help.. I did exactly and I saw a white shining image stretching his hands to words me, I forcefully stretched my hand out and the moment I touched him, I woke up from my sleep with serious headache and bruises on my body, the pain was so much that I had to take panodol the following day.. I had to call my mom and inform her... This happened as far back as 2014..... All thanks to God almighty for keeping me alive till date...hallelujah somebody
Glory to God. I sometimes laugh when people use science to explain spiritual things.

I also share in this experience, when I would be woken up by the NEPA light, eyes closed and can't be opened, no limbs can be moved, yet my brain and ears still functioning, and most important I do have difficulty in breathing and have something I can call a semidream which is always the same, I always thought one day I may die during this struggle which last for a few seconds or maximum 2 minutes, till I finally wake up.
I am always urged to tell those around me , but I later thought they may never understand what I am talking about since they can't relate or they make me to dey start 7 days fasting and prayer over that.
Glory to God I have experience that since a year now.
You just described my experience exactly.
The way I breathe heavily after waking up eventually ehn...

This only happens when I sleep on my back.

So this night, this creature sits on my chest and I'm struggling. I am pinned to the bed but conscious cos I can see the room and my surroundings but I cannot move and I cannot shout. I'm basically turning side to side and groaning...then I make a very willful effort and jump up. I immediately go and carry and stick and went back to bed. I swore I was going to beat the shit out of anything that sits on me

I later realized this isnt spiritual as it only occur when I sleep on my back. Sleep apnea or something then your brain just conjures up strange stuff

You don't know what sleep paralysis is. It doesn't happen while you are awake. It usually start like a dream, but while your brain wakes up to the reality of it, your body is still being held back. You want to come out of the dream, but the body is still being dragged to it.

Often it's usually about life and death dream. Your brain comes out of the dream but your body is being dragged for atleast 10 to 30seconds while you struggle physically and spiritually to rip yourself out of the dragging/pulling forces that want to take you to the other side.

When you finally open your eyes, you would know you have fought a battle. You will usually see evidence of your battle with the forces. Most times, you will see excessive sweat....and it doesn't matter if the AC is on 16degC.

The battle is not when you wake up. It is the few seconds that your brain wakes up and your body is held back. Now that your brain is woken it needs to do something so fast and so drastic within that short period they are dragging your soul. Most people call on their supreme spiritual being at this instance. You just need to settle that scores immediately your brain wakes up lest you cross over.


Bro sleep paralysis happens when you are awake pls,its like this,you wake but your brain is still sleeping,you only see all these hallucinations if your brain was dreaming when it happened,if it wasn't dreaming you don't see anything( this is where your theory comes in). I have had sleep paralysis,where I wake and I can't move my body, like I will literally be looking at my ceiling and bed but can't move my body and after lying for a while,my brain wakes too. I never for once saw myself going to heaven or being chased,I see real things in real time,I just can't move. Sleep paralysis is basically paralysis when falling asleep or after waking up,that is the definition. So as a matter of it does happen when you wake. Sleep paralysis doesn't start from sleep realm,it starts with you waking up,all those once people see,is when they are already awake but their brain is still stucked inside dream..so those things come out as visions or hallucinations

Well it may have it’s scientific or psychological proof, but the truth is that it has become the witches means of operation to attack people especially at night while asleep. I used to experience this between 11:50pm and 00:30am midnight, and it comes with a pressure from the dream that only until I shout the name of Jesus than I can get relief.
I also experience it any time my prayer life goes down.

All u Mudfrakas here saying u saw Jesus is ur nightmare the question is why does the Nigerian sleep paralysis different from the western worlds?
About five years ago Unilad page on Fb made a post about sleep paralysis and for days I kept reading comments about millions of people similar experience. No one mention any religious figures in their own but alas here everyone is dreaming of a jesus saving him or reprimanding him about sins. Naija and religion sha.

It's only ever happened to me once and it was last year. It was scary as hell, I had heard about it a lot.
I had not watched any scary movie prior to the experience.
As usual I went to bed a bit late, my 5am alarm went off I just snoozed it to try and sneak more sleep in. Then I had this sort of weird dream of some very beautiful demon with actual horns and black eyes giving me a Mouth Gig, I mean it was wild, my legs were moving at first. I was concious of everything that was happening, I didn't like what I was receiving. I knew the Mouth Gig was weird, I wanted to like snap her head and stop. Fam, nothing was happening, I couldn't move, I could only watch a demon blowing me, I felt precum before I finally woke up.
Hmm
say no to pornography, those things have demons attached to them; with or without the actors' knowledge.
You are under oppression my friend. I advice you to seek deliverance because the result could be that you will not get married, or would not be able to keep a marriage, or having children might be a problem, it could even affect your finances.
Read about incubus and succubus spirits.

it's people with insomnia that suffers most from sleep paralysis . but one thing to note is that it feeds on your Phobia. what you fear the most, and believe me, our fears are different. what i do when i experience sleep paralysis is to change your fear to desire, most times i switch mine into driving fast cars. remember everything is in your mind, non of it is real. today i may drive a lamborghini, next day a maserati, or ferari, then i drive till i crash the car, always crash the car

Yeah, I experienced it back in 2016, it usually happens around 1in the midnight. I feel this bright light in my room because I sleep in darkness but keep my touch by the side. The whole room will be lighted, with a television on the wall but in the real life there was no tv, there will be noise in the whole room, I struggle to wake up, it looks as if my eyes were open, I was aware of all that was happening but no strength to wake up. But when I finally wake up, I feel weak and confused. At a time, I decided to stay awake but if I mistakenly sleep off, it must happen again. I thought it was a spiritual thing, though I don't believe much in those things, I was jobless, I was passing through a horrible experience, i was duped of 200k by a fake boyfriend in the name helping me get a federal job, my mum was diagnosed of cancer and the money was needed as part of her treatment and the money was entrusted to me by my younger brother, I was contemplating suicide out of shame and disgrace. Everything happened so fast. But I can't remember how I was able to come out of that situation.

Abeg, make we forget English and grammar, that stuff na spiritual attack. I was always having mine every 2 a.m. I had the mindset that it was sleeping paralysis not until them almost killed me then an old man gave me something very common and insignificant to use and rub my body.so that fateful night d stuff came attacking but when it wanted to lay it's hands on my, a whirlwind from no where blow it and hit it had that it had to scream and my Jehovah witness roomate heard the sound and believed that truly that sleeping paralysis is a spiritual attack.. Ever since then, dey don't attack.......... Hint: if you are still experiencing sleeping paralysis, just sleep naked and ur face facing down, it will hadly attack u, except it manipulates u to roll and face up...

I had sleep paralysis when I was in school, I'm an avid reader and i barely sleep long at night. three things I've discovered about sleep paralysis are;
1. it happens when one don't get enough sleep consistently for a while (5-8 weeks)
2. what hunts one during sleep paralysis is ones worst fear. so if you see heaven and hell, your worst fear is afterlife.
3. when you're intoxicated, sedated or under the influence of marijuana you can't have sleep paralysis.

PS: if you want to treat your sleep paralysis, get enough sleep, rest and consume medical Marijuana

Zornes123:
I recall my dad telling my mom how an evil spirit held him in the bed and couldn’t let him move. The prayer that night wasn’t a funny one. Deep down I knew he only had sleep paralysis.
Well about mine. I saw a Jesus like figure talking to me and telling me to repent, out of fear I tried moving from my bed but this unknown force held me down for some seconds. When I was finally able to move i noticed I had tears in my eyes. This happened even before I knew of the term sleep paralysis. I always told my friends I saw Jesus back then. If it was sleep paralysis or Jesus I can’t even tell

The human mind is programmed to give an explanation to everything.
Sight,smell,touch etc needs a definition to be intrepreted,& stored in our head for future use.(when we see then again)

That's y uld see things like table,chairs,cars,houses etc & ur brain instantly tallies it to the forms stored in ur head to tell u it's a table, chair etc

That's y uld stare longer @ forms,u seeing for the first time because the brain is trying to define it & store it.

Humans are naturally curious & want to be able to explain everything one way or the other.
Giving birth to science & technology.

In a case it can't be explained,many think it doesn't/can exist or be.so often, spirituality science & technology clash & cross parts.& The laters cancels out the former more often than not cos our mind can only fathom wat it can explain,give form& definition to alone
Still it doesn't mean that spirituality doesn't exist.

I av a theory that some folks run mad or die when they go trespassing in the spirit world because they see forms & beings their brains can never fathom,handle or define.because our brains are meant for this realm alone.

Imagine ur reaction when u see something quite strange physically,how ur brains keeps searching & searching to interprete it ur heart beat increases & whole body reaction.

So,u might av seen Jesus or a messenger really,tho this "science term" for such helplessness @that point might be more acceptable to the brain.

But ild advice u to heed to the message u where given irrespective.

it's imposible I'm wrong .. and doe the sake of your question let's say I die and I see God ,
Oh boy does he have questions to ask ? Why this World ?! Why is there no prove for your existence but only a book ? And you expect me to kneel and worship you? You know how many children die everyday because of stavation? Why ? And you're ominipresnt? He has a long list of quarry
Highest I go to hell right? I'll take my chances than worshipping a jealous non working god
It is not impossible that you are wrong. People who believe in God have had a range of experiences that convinced them that he exists, and some have continued (diligently) in their quests to know Him better. So your view is not supreme. As for those questions, you talk like you are going to be the dictator of things when you meet Him lol. Anyway, it's entirely up to Him to answer your questions, and not your curiosity. You cannot know more than your creator. He'll ask you, those who believed and had faith, were they born special or did they have special abilities?
