My dad told me to go to the stress center but i think its a warning maybe from the lord and it just made me stronger. I had SP again today and a shadowy hooded figure standing in the middle of my room was speaking in a raspy voice. * * * Shout out to the Website: I am very appreciative of this website and this forum.I would like to talk to someone who is educated about it cuz i seen the grim reaper shadow. Hi Kayla, you may find either or both of the following pages useful: just started experiencing SP in the past few months. Here are my responses to your questions: (1) False wake ups. I thought that I was awake and went on to do other tasks in my apartment, but then something would trigger the realization that I was still paralyzed and not awake yet. But unlike you, I couldn't understand what he was saying. The fact that Stanford University and medical professionals are associated with this website lend it great legitimacy. Its reassuring to know that the things I see during SP are not "abnormal." * * * My personal thoughts: Upon learning that people have commonly experienced the terror of hallucinations of demons/evil figures for centuries and across cultures, I can't help but think that this is spiritual warfare.I have read extensive material on sp over the years and tons of theories but have come up with my take on what sp is.Although I am an active Christian, I don't agree with what most Christians say about sp.Besides the intense fear there is always the sense of an evil presence, even the times when I don't see an entity.Many of the times I am being strangled and feel a real pressure on my chest.
Once, I heard my son calling for help in his bedroom so I walked over there to help only to find his window open, when I reached to close the window, a black cat with evil glowing eyes bite my hand and I couldn't shake the cat of my hand.(3) "Spirit-man." I haven't tried so hard to wake up that my "spirit arm" leaves my physical body. I don't think that human beings would choose to hallucinate about evil figures that want to hurt them.So why is there a general consensus that when we do see things during SP, we are acutely aware that they are evil?I just made a video about my sp experiences, you can see it at You Tube.com/barnabusdonn...are some of my experiences and my take on what sp is: I had my first experiences with sp in 1996 when I was 16.I woke up in total paralysis and could see around my room.
Then it transitioned into an involuntary out of body experience where my spirit was floating uncontrollably above my bed.
