desimanero, every human being has experiences which are very hard to for a third party to explain. Really, you're the judge, and everybody else is just guessing. Something obviously happened, you experienced that. You may have been experiencing a trauma, which can generate strong physical sensations. Your experience was quite real, in that you did feel all that. Shock is a case. Delayed shock can do very strange things to people, and you can have some very weird, extremely powerful, emotional and physical reactions. It's not surprising that you would hear people who haven't had an experience trying to rationalize it, or blame it on things they know nothing about.

sometimes i have evil dreams being taken by ghost ... and i can actually feel them hurting me ... then I would wake up crying and vulnerable... my boyfriend told me that evil cannot come close to water and told me to put a glass of water under my bed and I haven't had a bad dream since then.

It definitely wasn't demons because they don't exist

Why would you leave a comment about something you obviously know nothing of?

This honestly sounds like a case of Sleep paralysis. You're awake but you can't move or make a sound. Wikipedia has a very good article about sleep paralysis and so I'll share the link with you here. It may help you decide whether or not thats what it was. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis On the other hand, it's very possible that you may have suffered a paranormal experience. I think this is unlikely if nothing like this has ever happened before. I don't personally believe in evil demons. I hope this is of some help to you.

I've read an article about that. Same as what happened to you. It might help you. I've tried to paste the link here, but myLot wouldn't allow it for security purposes. From what country are you? You go to www.inquirer.net, and search for Jaime Licauco.

That has happened to me before. I was lying down and saw a dark shadow hover over me. When I tried to scream out I couldnt talk and i couldnt move. It was the most frightening thing. Koreans beleieve that it is a ghost sitting on top of you. I'm not sure what I believe but it did freak me out. Another person told me that can happen when your body is extremely tired.

A few years ago we had a family problem. We found out that our father was having an affair with his secretary and they have a child from that affair. At that same time I was experiencing problems in my love life and my studies. So I decided to quit praying, quit going to church and ignore God. You know in a few day's time I have experiences like yours where i couldn't mvoe though I can't see a shadow, I would hear voices imitating my relatives' calling my name and I have recurring nightmares about men that looks like pig and they would kidnap humans and slash them....until finally I decided to come back to the Lord and all these miserable things vanished. Now even when I have problems I never forget God. When I think I can't go on....I call on God.

I've heard of sleep paralysis before, feeling like someone is sitting on your chest or holding you down, it could have been a partial out of body experience where you where aware within the body and couldn't move and saw some astral being. The fix for that I have heard is to concentrate your energy in your pinky fingers. Emotional periods in life tend to trigger such experiences.

I wouldn't worry about it being demons, or anything evil anyway. I'm sure it was like a waking nightmare. The mind works on many levels, and I am convinced that although you were not asleep, you were in a kind of self-hypnotised state - and your mind was working on a different level, and what you experienced was a form of hallucination, I think. Certainly nothing supernatural - just the mind playing tricks for a while. It could have been stress because of the break-up with your boy friend. Relax dear, it's nothing to worry about.

This already has happened to me more than once, you've seen shadows however, I've seen some people that I haven't seen before. The feeling is that you feel that you're in a place where you can't do anything, you want to move but your body can't, you want to scream but you have no voice. Though your senses are all awake. What I do when I am in this zone is that I keep calm, I do pray, of couse, and try to shout or try to shake my body to be able to gain consciousness physically. I think this is caused by stress, sometimes overthinking. I'm not really sure though, I haven't consulted any specialist on this as of yet.

I agree,I think your right. It was demons. Well they are everywhere.The best thing to do is pray. If you have overcome this experience. Ask for the Lords guidance so it wont happen again.If you cant talk and move just think of Jesus just incase this happens again.Jesus is still looking after you because he has saved you there.Be thankful. God Bless.

It kinda makes sense the situation and it being demons and all cuz for the past yrs i have had a troubled life.All kinds of evil surrounding me.Evil people that is trying to hurt me(my feelings).So many bad things have happened to me recently.So it being demons does make sense considering the situation my life is in right now.But its soo relieving to know God was there that day and he's here for me no matter what bad things ive done in my life.

Did you not read my post? I don't understand your rationale. It is a common medical condition yet you would rather believe in demons? If you won't believe me, take what I said to your doctor and I guarantee he/she will agree with what I said... ...or maybe you don't want help and would rather conform to ignorant notions and entertain a life filled with the fear of the unknown. A little education never hurts. I'm not saying there are no metaphysical happenings in this world. I'm simply stating that what you mentioned is a classic case of Hypnagogia.

We have had inumerable experiences with ghosts/spirits. I have some hair raisers for ghost stories to tell. My wife had something similiar to this happen to her. She can tell it better than me..... - i was laying in the middle of my King size water bed. It was about midnight. I looked over and there was this shadow of a person standing next to my bed- all black. I tryed so hard to scream, nothing came out. I just clenched my blankets and said a prayer to heavenly father to please take away any bad spirits and to protect me. It went away. I fell asleep. It never came back and I hope it NEVER does.Sometimes, all you can do is pray. Kim ...did your hair raise? Freaky

That is what we call demonic oppression. You need to pray against it and if you have any connection with the devil, break it

My friend this is nothing but demonic oppression. The presence of evil is every where, only those who are under the protection of the great God can really say they are covered.
