Nightmare or something more.... demonic?

Thursday, April 25, 2013

The other day I woke up around 9 something in the morning just to go back to bed some minutes later. Has anyone had a dream so real you could have sworn you were awake? I laid in my bed with my eyes open. To the side near the foot of my bed was an old, homeless-looking woman. She was transparent and white and where her eyes should have been was nothing more than black voids. We locked eyes for a a couple of short moments and then I felt my neck get tight and I couldn't breath. I thrashed about and struggled. And then as quickly as she was there she was gone. It took a few moment for me to regain the use of my body. I don't remember opening my eyes to wake up. It terrified me. If it was a nightmare it wasn't a normal one. I can usually recover quickly after and not be scared to fall back to sleep, but this time it really shook me. I talked about this with my Friend and lead investigator of our team Bendigo. He said it sounded just like a nightmare and doesn't really want to call it paranormal until further proof. He said since I'm obsessed with the paranormal it made since that I would get dreams like this. I really understand his reasoning but I do believe there's something going on here. Its one of those things that just stayed with me. The following night I didn't sleep until it was almost day time out. And even now, last night when I went to bed I refrained from looking near the foot of the bed.

Also, today mom and I took the public transportation into town. There is a door in my room leading to the main garage area (which is being used as a gym) The door was closed when I woke up and left and when we got home the door was wide open. Nothing was taken if someone had been inside but I highly doubt any one would break into a house in plain day light.

Also, I've been drinking a lot more water and soy milk lately. :) I'm working on cutting back on chocolate and fried foods. :D Wish me luck on this.

    It's a perfectly normal, and fairly common as uncommon things go, called a hypnopompic state of consciousness, meaning that it occurs between sleeping and waking (the reverse is hypnogogic, referring to the time between waking and falling asleep.) Hypnopompic states are characterized by an emotional response, often fear or confusion, and sometimes sleep inertia (also called sleep paralysis) which is when movement is slowed, difficult or impossible due to depressed frontal lobe function as you transition from sleep.

If you see the old woman again when you're certain you're wide awake - same place or different place - or if she comes to you in dreams bearing messages that seem foreign (rather than your own subconscious chatting with you and making suggestions), then we can talk about ghosts. Demons are extremely unlikely unless you've been doing some very ill-advised things (such as summoning them.)

The very first thing to learn if you're serious about paranormal investigation is that 99% of the time there's a regular, physical or biological explanation for whatever you experience. Finding those makes the remaining 1% so exciting.

    There are two things that may be occurring, night terrors or PTSD-related flashbacks. Night terrors fit the description you gave. Basically they are far worse than nightmares and are often accompanied by feelings of paralysis. Many people believe that PTSD only occurs to people who have first-hand experience of trauma. However, this is not the case. The recent spate of terrible occurrences that have been so heavily televised can create a sense of imminent danger. I did some research on women who were in Desert Storm. Many of them came back with strong fears although they were not injured or under fire. The potential for danger was great and they were right to fear it. Women who have been in situation where rape was very likely although it did not occur sometimes report PTSD symptoms. Think about whether you have experienced something that caused intense fear. There are some treatment options for this. Also google night terrors so you can understand what may be occurring.

    I don't know your house but the door could have been opened for a number of reasons. Your friend is also right all your paranormal stuff could be contributing itself to your nightmares. But then again maybe you really are being haunted(joke).

I can understand why that would freak you out. I would have been screaming and running into another room with a person as fast as I would be able to, I also wouldn't been sleeping alone for quite a while.

And remember you do all the paranormal stuff, they can only feed off of you as much as you allow them to.
