Paralized (Ghosts Dream)
So i keep having this re occuring dream that i feel half awake and half asleep for. My body becomes paralized and i cannot open my eyes even if i try as hard as i can. I always feel so scared when that happens to me like the other presence around me is evil. They normally whisper disturbing things in my ear and get loud and yell. I try so hard to stay calm and just wake up. Ive actually tried to touch someone sleeping next to me just to shake me and get me up. in my last dream i actually punched myself in my face in my dream to get me to wake up and it felt like i had 3 sandbags on my arm so it took all of my might to actually wake me up. When i finally do wake up it still feels like theres a presence so i just lay there and turn the tv and become very aware of every little sound around my place.

Could be a couple things.
In a 'paranormal' sense, it sounds like you are experiencing a phenomena called Astral Catelepsy. In theory, this state is where your essense or 'spirit' drifts to another realm outside our Earthly bodies and your physical body and mind notices that your soul/spirit is not inhabiting your body. When this happens, its almost like you are stuck inbetween 2 worlds (half asleep and half awake as you stated) and you cannot move. Many people feel impending doom from no actual source and/or like something or someone is holding them down or sitting on their chest. (Such experiences fall into doctor's diagnoses of Arythmia and Sleep Apnea) It is said the best thing to do when this happens is to try to relax as much as possible until you come out of it.

Coming from a more psychological point of veiw, it could indicate feelings of people or situations that are controlling you, leaving you feeling out of control, that your sub conscious mind is acting out. (remember, dreams are a way that your mind works out the kinks in your everyday emotions and interactions)
