    Hey sweets,

    when I had my bible study, the sister that studied wit me

    explained to me that the demons shudder when they heard

    the name of Jehovah. And anytime I was frightened by somethin'

    to call his name

    Well, as I have said I was not brought up as a witness

    one night as I returned home my neighbors cat scared me

    I must say, it was not Jehovah's name that sprung

    forth from my lips

    before calling out "JEHOVAH, JEHOVAH, JEHOVAH" which is 50% more effective than calling it out twice.

    And 60% of the time, it works every time.

    My sleep paralysis involved....feeling like I was being held or pushed down on the bed, like something was on my chest.

    It involved feeling like I was in a different time, like back in histiory some time...I'm a time traveller...LOL

    It was very visual...everything I could 'see' was different.

    I felt an ominous 'spirit' or 'entity' in the room...and sensed the presence of a woman.

    I also combined this experience with sleep walking...because near the end I actually got out of bed and walked round and round the room...well in squares around the room...I felt like I was walking down corridoors and they kept turning. I know I physically did this because the person with me at the time was pretty freaked out. I thought it was because they experienced it too...but in hindsight...I think it was my behaviour they were freaked about....LOL

    The whole experience seemed real to me...and until recently I thought it was real....strange what our minds can do. I think we underestimate them.

    Yeah, when I get the flying sensation, I feel like I'm flying through tunnels---twisting and turning. One night I had convince myself that I really figured out how to fly, and it was kind of based on how Mario racoon flies. LOL

    Wow, sleep paralysis!

    This used to happen to me quite hasn't happened in the last 2.5 years. (it hasn't happened since I left the JWs) The wiki article said stress could bring it on. So this makes complete sense, life has been pretty much stress free since my wife, boys and I left.

    Here is what I experienced. It would always happen right before I woke up. It was so weird. I couldn't breathe, it was like something was sitting on my chest. I thought I was hearing a loud growling/buzzing (freaked me out) I could look all around but I couldn't move. Sometimes it was like I was actually out of my body and looking down on myself. I thought it was just me! Another side point. In the past I had a problem of grinding my teeth something terrible when I was asleep (this too stopped after I left the JWs). In some of these moments of sleep paralysis (I guess) I thought I was grinding them so hard that they just shattered and started falling out.

    Crazy what our minds do! Thank NC for bringing this up.

    LOL--I ground my teeth so hard one night, I actually thought they had turned into those seeds inside a green pepper and were just being cleared easily out of my mouth with a finger. When I could move again, I actually checked them----expecting seeds.

    LOL mine turned into sunflower seeds! hahaha

    Amazing! Thanks, wow...some scientific explanation, that is awesome. ;)

    My friend made some comment about the property being known for its demon infestation. I reminded him that I don't believe in demons. He insisted that they exist so, being that I am a douche canoe of the highest order, I told him we should try to conjure 'em up with mockery. I can't remember exactly what I started chanting but it was purely facetious and, since none of you were there, witty.

    OMG, that was really funny!

    Bold is mine.

    demons can be kind creatures. Just don't PISS THEM OFF!

    I used to grind my teeth as a child...pretty sure it was stress related.

    And I often had flying dreams....escapism I suppose.

    mythreesons....I have to say I felt relieved too once I realised what actually happened.

    Thats a great link Clarinetist....the fact that this happens all over the world, and every culture has attributed the experience to being supernatural is very interesting.
