I think I'm haunted...

I have sleep paralysis anytime from once a year to a3 or 4 times. Scary as shit when I was a kid. A couple of times as an adult I felt like I wasn't alone.
However since being with my wife for te last ten years.ni have been able to change my breathing pattern enough for her to wake up and then in turn wake me up. I'm much more calm about it now to, because I understand it. However not being able to move can be really uncomfortable, castrophobic like. The neat part though is being fully aware of everything in the room even though your eyes are closed.

Anyhow, my buddy was having the same thing happen in his place. Had a mutual friend who has certain "powers" to come over and said a women was in the apartment. He found out somebody had passed away in the apartment. He just started talking to the women from time to time and this helped. Although things get moved or scattered still from time to time. He says there seems to be a mutual agreement. That's all second hand. So take it for what you want.

okay

no joke. I've been having similar episodes. I'll be passed out on my couch and open my eyes. I'm not able to move. I can see clearly, but I feel as if there is something just behind me. I can only make out a blurry figure and nothing else. It's straddled on top of my couch leering over me, and it's doing nothing. No joke. This has happened twice in the last several weeks. I don't think I've ever experienced fear and dread like this before because I was frozen still and couldn't make myself move.

Sleep paralysis is a common thing. I pay attention to dreams but don't make decisions on it, since there is no way to think them through rationally. It doesn't mean your haunted, just too scared too move, but, think about this: when was the last time you were so frightened you could not move?

RumRogerz, try to leave the things as you find them, and see if they move further or if other things move. Also, please traps by your entryways, like sprinkle salt or sugar or place hairs or other objects that will be displaced if someone comes in.

I had this experience, many many years ago.

I blamed it on a succubus.

Maybe that's yer problem! Yer space and soul is being invaded by a succubus!

It's just one possible paranormal theory out of several possible ones

nope. I just felt like I was awake-sleeping (aka paralyzed), while it felt like some Presence, of actual heavy weight, was breathing into me and....

Let's just say that the next day, I woke up, and actually wanted to take some Valium.

I think if you open your mind to certain possibilities, they will exist.

Btw if you listen to K Leimer's *savant* ep from 1981, oh, "what the fuck was it called", Pitchfork just did a review on this..... entoutcas, listen to it in the right mood *aka* on schrooms or acid, and ... well... see the EP cover for Kate Bush's "The Dreaming" ep (for the single, not the album)...... well, looks like that

...compared to the Eno/Byrne collab "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts".. the ghosts being all that freaky shit

after reading that wiki about sleep paralysis - that painting you first see pretty much mirrors what i experienced. it was as if something was looming right over me. so fucked.

so far, nothing to report.

basketball is right though, a succubus is demonic. If I'm not mistaken, a succubus also tries to seduce a male. Which is funny, because the presence i felt was definitely female. At the corner of my eye I can definitely remember very nice legs and long black hair. That was for both times it has happened in the last 2 weeks.

This is the kernel of truth beneath "The Secret" - and in the article I linked they showed more evidence of this:

But it’s also true that if you already believe in ghosts, or are told a place is haunted, you are more likely to interpret events as paranormal. A 2002 study found that believers in ghosts were more likely than non-believers to report unusual phenomena while touring a site in Britain with a reputation for being haunted. Visitors who were told that there was a recent increase in unusual phenomena occurring at the site also reported a higher number of unusual experiences on the tour.​
Same goes for UFOs - people who already believe in them will be more likely to spot them.

Note this is distinct from a factual determination that observed phenomenae exist, only that those who have primed themselves are more likely to report having witnessed the things they were expecting to see.
