Something Entering My Body (Being Possessed Dream)
I had a strange dream last night. I dozed off on the sofa before bedtime and dreamt something (someone?) was trying to enter my body.

I'm not religious but I recall being somewhere around people I recognised (but can't remember now) and I starting to recite a prayer. Suddenly, I was back in the room looking at myself lying on the sofa and could see something positioning itself in the same position I was lying in and then seemingly sliding into my body. The feeling was overwhelming. I didn't awaken abruptly - I opened my eyes slowly and felt like I could still see whatever it was entering my body. So I stood up slowly, got a drink of water and went up to bed.

It seemed so real because I'd fully awoken and it seemed to be still happening until I walked away.

Any ideas?

I just had almost the same kind of dream! I also fell asleep on my couch but before my usual bedtime. In the dream I felt a presence trying to enter my body and I tensed up my whole body and chanted something I don't even remember at this point. I then thought tried to get up and walk and it was almost like I got up and took a few steps then someone pushed rewind and I was pushed back onto the couch. Was very disturbed after waking up, and thus, here I am.

Could it really be sleep paralysis mAnifested into this dream? Coincidentally, I'm also Asian. Hmmm creepy!

Its call paralyse dream.. One side of your brain that controls the movement of your body needs to sleep because you are physically tied on that day of your dream.. The other side that controls your thinking is not asleep..

So that makes you not able to move sometime and seeing things.. When you start to think something else you will wake up and more often people like yourself start to pray.. Its actually quite common for Asian people to have this kind of dreams.. cheers from Singapore.
