Don’t just lie there! Wake up! ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ

I have watched and read insane amounts of horror movies and stories in my life to nurture an interest in encountering paranormal activities. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Most nights, my mind starts buzzing with what could be lurking in the dark when I am on my way to use the washroom.

I don’t know if you would agree to this, but there is an appeal to insanity, a certain joy in letting your mind play games with you with regards to what you would do if you were the character. ๐Ÿคช

Well, it’s a different ball game when it becomes a reality for a few moments. When the same nightmare/demon decides to visit you as often as it can. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

For some reason, it is mostly at night and this is how it usually starts:

I think to myself not today, not today. Please spare me. ๐Ÿ‘ป

 I’m awake, I can’t move, I can’t shout to stop this shadowy figure from inching closer to me. My countless attempts to mention the name Jesus fails. 

Drowning in immerse fear, I feel the shadowy figure climbing onto me and we both start sinking into the bed. Kicking is useless because my body is unresponsive. 

After a long internal struggle, I finally snap out of it. With my heart pounding and sweat breaking on my chest and forehead. 

There is generally this excitement about breaking free and conquering this evilness in spite of all the dread that just happened. I don’t know what prompted me to Google it this time around, instead of my usual self, diving straight into prayer binding all evil and demons that are out for my poor soul. 

This is exactly what I typed: 

What does it mean when you are awake and can’t move?

 My surprise when sleep paralysis showed up! I mean what the hell! So it’s not a demonic attack as my friends from secondary school would tell me. Watching all those horror movies amounted to nothing. No out-of-the-world experience. ๐Ÿ˜ข

In school, our conversations would take a form like this, ” Desaha, we have to get stronger in this our battle against the devil. I was attacked by the devil yesterday, I tried hard to call you but I just couldn’t. I prayed in my head asking for the counsel of angels to come to rescue me.” ๐Ÿ˜‚ Hilarious huh?

Now that I had made the discovery, I had to tell my friend. I quickly sent a message to her. She didn’t believe me. I mean, if she doesn’t trust me or Google enough, I don’t know what will. 

All I know is that I was so relieved to know it isn’t a demonic attack as we have been made to believe all along in school. I am disappointed though, I can’t go round spinning stories of the underworld. I mean, how else am I to feel alive? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyways, has this ever happened to you? Iโ€™d love to hear about your experience. 

Cheers ๐Ÿ˜Š
