I’m so hoping someone can help me with this as it’s driving me crazy.
This is the third time I’ve had this dream, or should I say experience now. It normally starts with me being aware in the dream, and this can be anything I’m dreaming about, that there is some kind of entity close to me. All of a sudden I feel this horrible dark energy on top of me holding me down and suffocating me. I am absolutely terrified, and that’s putting it mildly. Somehow I instinctively know to say the Lord’s prayer, although I can hardly get the words out of my mouth. It’s such a huge struggle, like I’m losing my life force. I get to about the third or fourth line of the Lord’s Prayer and the entity eventually breaks away. This is something it does with great anger and I feel the force of this. The last time this happened, which was 2 weekends ago, I actually felt the bed move as it jumped off of me. It also made a kind of growling noise and knows it was greatly angered by not being “successful” in its attempt to take my “soul” away. I know by this time I’m most definitely awake as I clearly see the bottom of my bed bounce. I can’t say this strongly enough – I’m absolutely terrified! I immediately get out of bed and go through to my daughter’s room and get in beside her for comfort.
I had a previous one before this and the same thing happened, but that time I couldn’t even move. I managed to screech a low whisper out for my daughter to help me, which she only just heard and came through running. She said she had woken up suddenly feeling that there was something wrong and then just a few seconds after that she heard me whimpering. That one was as terrifying as this one. I go to bed most nights scared to death. I end up leaving the light on all night. I haven’t had one since but feel that there is something in my home most for the time.
Can someone help me or point me in the right direction for help.
