Last night I woke up, but I could not move. It felt as if something was holding me down. Then I tried to scream for help, my mouth opened but nothing would come out. I could hear myself pleading to be released and my eyes were open. It was dark in my room, but I could see a little girl in my doorway. She vanished and suddenly I was released. The panic that I felt afterwards was very scarey. I was afraid to go back to sleep. This was not the first time this has happened to me. These episodes are very very scarey.

I've had these same experience also, more than once. I know exactly what your are going through! No one else will clearly understand how frightening this can be unless they have experienced this themselves. I have no idea what this is called but I can tell My experience" I was 14 and had just recieved Jesus into my heart, at night I would play soft praise music before I'd go to sleep and I'd leave my lamp on. Well as I was asleep peacefully I began to feel as if I was beginning to wake up and I started to feel an evil presence near me. I could not move nor scream for help I felt so weak! I started to hear evil laughing, it was so clear and audible and everytime I tried to move or speak the laughter grew stronger. In my mind I began to call upon Jesus because I knew He would save me, then suddenly it disappeared. I ran to my moms room and woke her up. I told her what happened to me and she prayed with me and we both read psalms 91 together 7 times that night before going back to sleep". The only help from these attacks is to call upon the name of Jesus. These are simply attacks from Satan but he can be overpowered in the name of Jesus!

This is a common dream for anyone who is approaching a crossroad in their life. A human being has many facets to being. The two main ones are the spirit and the lower self. The little girl in the dream is the pure spiriual self of the dreamer. The dreamer is likely to have undertaken some personal or spiritual development and the lower self has intepreted this as a threat and sparked this fear dream in order to dissuade the dreamer from developing. It will release the "pressure" when the dreamer stops the efforts of betterment. The dreamer should ask God, the Supreme Being to prevent the evils of the lower self (nafs). Overall, this is a dream which has good portent.

This is sleep paralysis. Normally, when you dream, your body becomes paralysed to keep you from acting out your dream and hurting yourself. Sometimes your mind wakes up before your body does so you are paralysed for a little bit and it feels like you are being held down. This happens to a lot of people. It is also common to hallucinate that there is someone in the room with you when this happens. For most people, it usually happens when you've been under stress and haven't been sleeping properly. It isn't harmful and shouldn't last more than a few minutes. If it happens again, the best thing to do is relax and wait for it to pass. And of course, try to take care of whatever is causing you stress in the first place.
