I used to have a dream
in which I would wake up and be resting on my bed. The only reason I knew I was dreaming was that there was never any sound or temperature. Upon trying to move in the dream I would feel an incredible spiritual pressure weighing me down, it was so powerful I could not even breath at times. The only way to wake from it was to calm myself and force one of my arms up through the pressure. Later the source of the pressure began to manifest itself as a floating shapeless mist-like creature/demon. It wore a dark blue grim reaper-like outfit only there was nothing inside the robe but blackness (I always felt as though reaching inside it's hood would feel like the cold nothingness of outer space, like their was some sort of dimensional rift within). The last time I had this dream, which was about 7 or 8 years ago, the demon once again appeared hovering over me while I laid on my bed, but there was no pressure that time, then it just vanished. The dream was not over because as soon as it disappeared I felt my ankles and wrist gripped by spirit like hands coming from my bed that I could only feel. Finally one final hand wrapped itself around my neck, I fought harder than ever before to break free and was able to wake up. Upon waking up I could still feel the pressure on my neck as I checked myself in the mirror I saw I had a hand print on my neck, yet none on my ankles and wrists. I logically thought I probably choked myself will sleeping, however upon further inspection I noticed the hand print was larger than mine and only appeared to have two large fingers and a large thumb. Now after all these years the demon returned in my dreams tonight. I was about to use my computer, but I felt tired so I decided to lye down for a bit. I feel asleep and began to have a typical dream. After a while I awoke from that dream or so I thought, this was the first time I could not tell the difference between the dream world and the real world. Everything was exactly the same as when I feel asleep, my computer was on, I was holding a portable external hard-drive in my hand and was about to get up when I began hearing an extremely eerie scratching noise coming from the outside of my door. The scratching ceased and I slowly moved my hand that was holding the external drive towards my body when it was forced back to it's original position. My peripherals caught sight of the mist creature spawning in the upper corner of my room above me. It descended towards me and came extremely close to my ear as it phased through my bed. As It made it's way past my ear it made a soft demonic growl and I could feel it's hot breath on my ear. The demon seamed weaker this time around as I felt no pressure, but the dream was much more vivid. The demon also felt as though it was taking form, as though it attempted to form a face. Not sure what to make of these strange new changes to this nightmare of mine.
