The Lords Prayer saved me from a dark shadow like figure

Submitted by: Jaxson

My Story: A few years ago, I was at home in bed and suddenly awoke to the feeling that someone was in my room. I looked around the room while lying down noticing it was quite early. 3 am. As I turned my head back to the other side of the room I saw a dark shadow like figure between my bed and the wall. I followed it with my eyes as the figure moved up the wall and across the ceiling from left to right where it then disappeared. A couple of seconds later I felt something sit down on my bed next to my legs. It heavy enough to bow the mattress like it was a very big person sitting there. I tried to get up but my entire body was frozen to the bed like I was being pushed down into the mattress, every muscle unable to move. Shortly after realizing I was completely paralyzed, I began to be choked furiously by the thing/person on my bed. The thing that terrified me most was my inability to fight back, my arms, legs, torso, everything pinned. I have never been a religious person but when I could not fight off my assailant, suddenly the Lords Prayer came to my mind. I began to pray ; Our Father who art in heaven… trying to vocalize the words through my constricted wind pipe. About 3/4 the way through the prayer, the hold on my throat was released and that thing was gone. The heaviness I felt on my bed had disappeared and after several minutes my muscles slowly returned to normal function. I had never been so afraid in my entire life as I was that night. Until three nights later when it happened again. Once more I feel that the lords Prayer saved me from whatever it was in my room those nights.

Fortunately I’ve not had any other repeat experiences since, however after those occurrences I have suffered through bouts of deep depression and nearly daily thoughts of suicide. I am slowly getting better but I have wondered for some time now if there is anyone else who has ever experienced what I went through. Comments would be greatly appreciated and please forgive me for not using my real name. I am embarrassed by this situation and do not want someone to find my story by googling my name. Thank you.

  1. Hi, by your discription of experiances, I’d say you may have suffered from Sleep Paralysis.

    Sleep paralysis is closely related to REM atonia, the paralysis that occurs as a natural part of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Sleep paralysis occurs when the brain awakes from a REM state, but the body paralysis persists. This leaves the person fully conscious but unable to move. The paralysis can last from several seconds to several minutes “by which the individual may experience panic symptoms and the realization that the distorted perceptions were false”. Sleep paralysis is particularly frightening to the individual because of the vividness of such hallucinations. – Wikipedia

    People who claim to have been abducted by Aliens describe the same experiances. In my opinion I beleive that when we’re at the point of dozing off to sleep we’re susceptable to seeing ghosts, only on the basis that our subconscious is more aware of whats going on around us and the logical part of our brain can’t block what we’re seeing.

  2. Hi Jaxson.
    I feel sorry 4 your exp with this enitmy there seems to be something that is trying to scare you and as you have turned to god in time of need god has answered your prayer i would however suggest that you conentrate on all possitive things in ur life and try to put some time aside for reading the scriptures about god, even though I walk through the shadow of the vally of death I shall fear no evil for thee are with me thy rod and staff thy comfort me, keep repeting this in your head over and over even when angry or sad or scared or in need and also accept that Gods only son died for all of us sinners on the cross so that we could be saved through him should you do this and truely believe, no evil anywhere will be mighty enough to harm you i hope you have faith and i wish u all the best god bless my friend!!

  3. Many people have experienced things similar to yours. Please make sure that you are getting the appropriate treatment / counseling for the depression and suicidal thoughts.

    Also, it is good to go to church and get to know other good and spiritual people — they can help you greatly. Prayer can help lift those negative thoughts and moods as well as defend you from evil beings!

  4. I have had a similar experience only minus the choking. I woke up around 3:20 am after being asleep for only twenty mintues to find I couldn’t open my eyes and it felt as if I was being pinned down. It only lasted for a few seconds as my grandfather’s spirit came in and rescued me. I was staying at my grandmother’s house at the time and the room I was staying in is right above the room where his urn of ashes sits.

  5. I am a 38 year old male who had the same experience when I was between 6-7 y/o , I lived in military housing at the time. It started with me being pushed down the stairway of the two-story duplex I lived on several different occasions, luckily suffering no major injury. Then it climaxed one night when I awoke feeling the dread that most others describe when these creatures are mentioned. I sat straight up in my bed extremely fast and there it was, right in front of my eyes and it did not seem happy that I had dared to look straight at it, after what seemed like about 5 seconds of being frozen in fear, I felt like I was grabbed in the center of my chest and forced violently in a prone position, I managed to pull the covers over my head. I stayed there until I could tell the sun was coming up. No one ever believed me and I have not been bothered since.
