In the seemingly ongoing saga of paranormal activities that seem to happen in or around myself I submit a story that my brother relayed to me just the other night. For years now my brother has had many cases of sleep paralysis, he has witnessed apparitions, and has heard whispers in the dark. Within the last two years he would drift off to sleep but just before entering the dream state he would suddenly get a feeling of fear and dread pass over him. He would explain his fear and reluctance to even open his eyes as he knew he was not alone in his room. He would then feel a presence sitting on his chest and hold him down. This could simply be chalked up to a simple case of sleep paralysis, an actual diagnosable condition, however combined with his previous experiences with the paranormal, including witnessing an apparition standing at the end of his bed a few years before, his testament to what he believes is true is very persuasive.
About two weeks ago he was lying on the couch about to go to sleep with his girlfriend sleeping soundly next to him. He suddenly had that feeling of not being alone in the room. He lifted the blanket over his head and rolled to his side, with his back facing the back of the couch and his front in the direction of his girlfriend. What he felt next scared him more than any other experience he’s yet had. He felt a needle prick enter the back of his neck and he became instantly paralyzed. He insists he was fully awake and, though he tried to speak and wake his girlfriend and move his hands to grab her, he was unable to do either. After only, what seemed to be, a few short minutes, he was able to move again. He woke his girlfriend up and searched the house top to bottom, no sign of anything. Though there is no evidence of missing time or an intruder, one can’t help but think about a possible alien presence interfering that night. Or perhaps it was simply a dream? Either way this is a terror inducing moment for another member of my family all too familiar with the paranormal.
