Write Here Write Now | Sleep Parlysis With A Shadow Person

Daily Prompt

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Write Here, Write Now, and this is what it said:

Write a post entirely in the present tense.

And this is my response:

I am typing this sentence to answer the Daily Prompt instead of an entire post because of the dreams below: Colorless green dreams sleep furiously.

Dream 1

Last night I got in bed and I closed my eyes to go to sleep, probably only a few short minutes later I heard my brother GC yell something like: The Devil is above our….!” or “The Devil is above our beds!” or “The Devil is on our ceiling!” or something like that, and so I opened my eyes to see what he was talking about; but I was paralyzed like I was having sleep paralysis, and so I could only move my eyes.

I remember being a bit confused but I assumed that I was having sleep paralysis, I started to move my eyes to look up at the ceiling, and on the wall next to the ceiling fan closer to the area over my brother GC’s bed I saw a shadow person shaped like a man; and this shadow person was looking down toward us so its back was facing the ceiling and its butt was probably touching the ceiling and its open hands were probably touching the ceiling like it was somehow keeping itself on the ceiling somehow, and it looked like it might jumped down at us.

I only barely glanced at the shadow person so I am not exactly sure what it looked like other than being a blackish color with possibly a static-like effect or strange effect/affect to the blackness but I am not sure, it possibly had eyes and a mouth but I am not sure, and it was about human-size but probably a bit smaller than the average human.

This happened so fast and suddenly and by surprise that I was confused but assuming that I was paralyzed from sleep paralysis at first so I was on alert but not afraid yet, but then I realized that my brother GC could see the shadow person too; and so if that was true, then this was possibly not sleep paralysis or a hallucination and so it was possibly really a shadow person in the room, and so then I started to get even more confused and I started to get a bit afraid because it started to seem like this was really happening as I tried to move to defend against this shadow person.

I could not move still and the shadow person looked like it was going to jump down at us, I am not sure if it did or not, it probably was looking at us and smiling or had it’s mouth open (if it had one) like it was enjoying itself and about to attack; and something happened that I can not remember (maybe it jumped down from the ceiling at one of us, but I can not remember), I made a strong effort to break the paralysis and get out of bed so that I could fight the shadow person, but I suddenly woke up in the real world making a loud noise like I had been snoring and like I had tried to yell something as I fought to get out of the paralysis or something like that.

The alarm clock showed that it had only been a few short minutes since I had laid down in bed, I must have quickly went to sleep without realizing it and I had a false awakening dream where I woke up in a dream and had sleep paralysis in the dream, and so everything that happened was just a dream it seemed; and everything was normal in the real world it seemed, but I did look around a bit and think before going back to sleep because that was a bit realistic and dramatic and surprising but I did not see or hear anything unusual even though I still felt a bit on alert.

This experience reminds me of a blog post called Sleep Paralysis that I read about another blogger’s experience named Girlwithcopperbrownhair a few weeks ago.

Dream 2

I had one or more dreams that involved public bathrooms inside a building, I went to the public bathroom several times in the dream or dreams, but that is all that I can remember of this dream or dreams.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day and I was in my parent’s yard near the driveway when I saw our neighbor Mr. RD, his brother who is dead but who was alive again in this dream, and maybe one other man who had dark-brownish colored skin driving past his house in the street like they were going to reverse into their driveway.

The vehicle stopped in the street and Mr. RD got out of the automobile to put his brother in a wheelchair, he was going to push his brother in the wheelchair into the house, but his brother was in such bad physical condition that he fell out of the wheelchair near our fence; and so I ran to help, I helped pick his brother up and put him back in the wheelchair, and I helped push him inside Mr. RD’s house.

Mr. RD’s house was even bigger and nicer than it already is in real life, all of us went inside the house and I remember Mr. RD thanking me, and I remember asking his brother if he was okay and he was; and some of Mr. RD’s family entered the house, I probably briefly talked with them before leaving, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, I remember that something happened that involved my aunt JE probably walking over to my parent’s house for something, and then I remember my aunt JE and one or more of my parent’s and I walking toward my aunt JE’s house; and there were workers at her house doing construction.

I remember my male cousin DE being at The G House and we possibly went there or near there but I can not remember what happened exactly, we possible went to or near The E House but I can not remember what happened there either, and then we went back home; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 5

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day and I was walking through a very large parking lot-like area where there was construction going on in the distance like a company was having a new building/warehouse built or something like that, there was more that happened before this part of the dream, but I can not remember those parts of the dream.

I remember finding a mobile phone and one or two other objects so I walked around trying to find out who they were for so that I could give the mobile phone and the other objects to them, a man with brownish colored skin was helping me at some point, and I remember us walking around tables where people were sitting in this parking lot-like area asking them if they lost anything or not.

I did not tell anyone what the objects were because I wanted to make sure that I returned them to the correct person, at some point I found a somewhat over-weight/over-fat woman with brownish colored skin sitting at one of the tables with other people who said that she was missing her mobile phone and one or two other objects, and so I asked her several questions to prove whether or not she was the owner; and she successfully answered all the questions, and so I gave the woman her mobile phone and the other objects.

I then walked away and some more things happened that I can not remember, and either the next dream is part of this dream or this dream ended; but I can not remember so I will type the next part as a separate dream because I am not sure.

Dream 6

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day and it was possibly part of the dream before this or it possibly took place near the parking lot-like area in that dream, I remember possibly walking from the parking lot-like area from the previous dream to a one-story building, and in this building was maybe a Chinese style buffet restaurant run by some people who were probably from China.

I remember my dad being with me at some point, Dashie from YouTube and his friend Sport were there, and so were some other people; and I think that the seating area was near the buffet, maybe bar-style seating, and I remember getting food and talking with Dashie and Sport and maybe my dad and the others.

I also remember listening to and talking to some of the workers, a somewhat older male worker was speaking another language (maybe Mandarin) and he was probably talking about me, and I remember trying to guess what he was saying; and I think that he did not think that I should be talking with the female workers because I was not from China or something like that maybe.

I remember one or more female workers talking to him like they disagreed with him, one of the female workers would sometimes stop to talk in English with me, and maybe eventually the male worker started to use a bit of English so that he could talk to me; but I can not remember the details of what was said or what happened.

Later I remember Dashie, Sport, the others, and I having fun and maybe singing and goofing around or something; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,

April 13, 2015 | Dream Journal | Two Knights Get Executed | Sleep Paralysis In A Dream? | Imperial Stormtroopers?

Dream 1

My sleep and dreams got interrupted and effected/affected by an insect bite that started burning and itching badly, this disturbed me enough that I woke up eventually and so I forgot most of my dreams and most of the details of the dreams that I do remember, but eventually I was able to go back to sleep.

All that I can remember of the first dream is that it was probably somewhat inspired by the television show Game Of Thrones, which I watched last night, and it involved a woman with whitish colored skin with long yellowish hair who probably somewhat reminded me of Cersei Lannister in appearance/personality/how she dressed; and this dream seemed to take place in an older time period like on the television show.

This woman sent two armored and armed male knights with whitish colored skin with medium-length yellowish colored hair on a secret mission in another kingdom or kingdoms, both knights left to the other kingdom or kingdoms; and they successfully completed their mission, and they returned to the woman.

They were both executed/killed for no clear reason even though they did everything that they were told to do, it seemed that the woman had them killed which made no sense to me, and so I remember trying to figure out who had them killed and why because it made no sense; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is possibly being sent by a woman on a mission to retrieve something from a fictional school that I once went to when I was younger, I remember walking down a hall in the school until I reached a dimly lit locker room, and I went inside the locker room to see people changing clothes/using the bathroom/taking showers/sitting/standing/et cetera; and some of them were former classmates of mine like my former male classmate SS and a short former female classmate of mine whose name I can not remember who had whitish colored skin with yellowish colored hair and she wore glasses.

The people were mostly quiet and looked a bit depressive/gloomy/neutral which was a bit strange, I possibly stopped to use the bathroom or something like that, and maybe I said a few things to some of my former classmates; and then I found a door near where a woman had changed clothes, and I went through it to another hall with several rooms along the hall.

There was maybe a nurse’s office that I assumed had the object/whatever that I was sent to retrieve, so I was going to sneak into it but a female nurse walked out pushing a cart, and so I went to hide in the locker room until she passed by; and so I sat on a bench or couch in the locker room across from a man from India or Pakistan who was laying on another bench or couch, but there seemed to be something wrong with him.

I noticed that his body was moving and changing oddly, I asked him if he was okay but he did not respond, and at some point it seemed that his body was only part of an upper body with a very thin/small partial arm like his body was slowly disappearing and warping like it was being controlled and consumed/warped/mutated/whatever by something; and it looked like he was choking on a flashlight that was in his mouth, and the flashlight was on.

I asked him if he was okay again and his partially deformed upper body (head, neck, chest, small partial small arm) floated in the air with the flashlight still stuck in his mouth above me, I was paralyzed and it felt like I was having sleep paralysis in the dream and/or in real life, and I started to get freaked out a bit and I continued trying to talk to the floating partial body of the man who was moving oddly in the air above me with the flashlight stuck in his mouth (the front of the flashlight was inside his mouth so the light was lighting up part of his insides probably) slowly moving toward my face.

This was very freaky and the look on the man’s face was disturbing and creepy like with his eyes bulging like someone choking/dying/unstable and his body moving in jerking motions as it floated toward me like someone controlling a puppet in a creepy way, I could not move and I started to get afraid like during sleep paralysis, and the man’s body continued to warp until you could see inside his body and you could see his eye balls because the top of his body was gone and it was warped so badly that he no longer looked human.

All I could do was try to talk to him as he got closer to my face, no one else seemed to notice or care and they still looked gloomy/neutral as they continued what they were doing in a creepy/odd way, and I accidentally woke up from the fear/creepiness/panic.

Dream 3

This was a confusing dream that I can only remember part of the end of the dream unfortunately, at the end of the dream I remember going to the yard of a family with one of the children (a young adult or adult male) of the owner’s of the house, and his family (mom and dad) greeted us outside in their nice yard; and there was an above-ground swimming pool, and various other things.

They probably offered us some food, drink, et cetera and we talked and they treated me very well and some other people were there as well and/or arrived; but things got a bit confusing and weird as time went on, and at some point I remember Imperial Stormtrooper-looking people arriving in the yard.

One of them had a short energy or projectile carbine-sized rifle/weapon/gun that looked like it was made of the same material as their armor and it was the same whitish color with blackish colored trim, the mother made them line up one at a time to be given a battle rifle (which was longer and bigger and it looked semi-automatic) and declared loyal to the empire after having to give an oath, and their previous weapons were taken and maybe they were given a few other things by a machine like they were on an assembly line.

The family seemed to be building an army loyal to an empire by converting and arming people/soldiers to it through this process, I wondered what this was all about and what was going on, and if they were going to try to do this to me or not.

There was a lot more that happened in this dream before this point and some things that happened after this point but I can not remember the details, and so none of this makes sense; and even in the dream I was confused.

The end,

My Mind Exploring Concepts Using Dreams

File:FreewillConceptsBasedUponPhilosophyOfMindCausationViews.png
Source: Wikipedia

I had several short dreams last night and the words concept/concepts stood out in my mind when waking up each time, it seems that my mind was using dreams to explore various concepts based on various topics (The Shadow (psychology) which I think was explored one or more times, fear, religion, aliens, the paranormal, science, technology, television, film, and many other topics and concepts), and I only remember part of four of those dreams.

Dream 1

All that I can remember is that I think that this all started with my family being inside a house watching a fictional television show that focused on various topics/themes/concepts/genres/and more during maybe the evening or night, and I started watching the television show with them; and I got to see and experience various concepts through the television show (science fiction, horror, comedy, action, mystery, drama, et cetera), but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The second dream was a continuation of the first dream where somehow I either won or was chosen for something that was connected to the fictional television show from the first dream, even though I was new to that television show and I did not know much about it, and a woman with long hair with maybe whitish colored skin won or was chosen as well; and she knew more about the television show than I did.

We were taken to a hotel-like building during maybe the night, it seemed that we were going to be part of a study/experiment that also included a sleep study and I guess a dream study that was probably somehow connected with/to that television show, and they put both of us in the same hotel room where I assume they were watching us with surveillance equipment and they probably had medical equipment connected to us to gather data/information/and more; and I assume that they had people nearby in case something went wrong and/or as security.

The woman and I had separate beds next to each other in the hotel room that somewhat reminded me of a nice version of my brother GC’s room with a taller ceiling and a bit more space, I remember both of us laying on our separate beds talking to each other about the television show and this study/experiment/sleep study/dream study/and more, and I remember us having a very good and intellectual conversation.

We talked about various concepts in connection with the television show, I had not seem many of those episodes, but I was able to talk about those concepts and my opinions on those concepts; and we had a long and nice conversation, but at some point we had to finally go to sleep.

I had a dream within a dream that I can not remember but I know that I woke up from this dream within a dream back into the other dream, I woke up with sleep paralysis in the other dream, and this part of the dream was realistic and scary because I started having my usual reactions of fear and panic; and I saw a shadow figure standing between our beds looking at me, it looked like the shadow of a woman, and for some reason it felt like/seemed like the shadow of the woman sleeping in her bed next to mine or it had assumed her shape/form.

I was terrified and I could not move or talk/yell and so I struggled while the shadow just looked down at me doing nothing, I reminded myself that this was just sleep paralysis so this was probably a hallucination, and I started calming myself by closing my eyes and controlling my breathing while reminding myself to stay calm; and eventually I calmed down enough to open my eyes and the shadow figure of a/the woman was gone, and I was able to move.

The woman in the bed next to me was still sleeping, I wanted to tell her about what happened but she was sleeping so I decided that I would tell her in the morning, and I wanted to ask the people doing the study/experiment if their cameras saw anything/anyone standing between our beds during the night or not; but I woke up as I tried to decide whether to ask them now or in the morning.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of the third dream is that I think that it was partly inspired by the Syfy television mini-series Ascension, and it seemed to possibly be exploring concepts like: adolescence, puberty, and more.

The music artist Selena Gomez or a woman like her, one of her female friends with whitish colored skin with long maybe yellowish colored hair, and two young men who one or more of them wanted to date and/or have sex with were in an indoor swimming pool hanging out that somewhat reminded me of the one from Ascension.

Mrs. Gomez seemed to be trying to encourage her friend to be more outgoing and start flirting with and having sex with and dating young men, her friend was shy and young, and so it was basically a short dream following concepts related to social interactions/situations/and more involving young people with growing hormones as their bodies mature; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

All that I can remember of the fourth/last dream is that I was on vacation with my family during maybe a gray afternoon in a fictional city and we went to a new Ryan’s buffet restaurant, we had to park on the other side of an apartment complex and we had to pass through the apartment complex on foot to reach Ryan’s, and there were many people standing around in the center of the apartment complex as the police searched for a man who had attacked someone and/or something like that.

Most of the people had brownish colored skin but not all of them, they seemed ready to help catch/stop the man who the police were after and it seemed that they were hoping for a chance to attack him maybe, and so there seemed to be a focus on the concept of group/mob behaviors and/or something like that; and I stayed to watch as my family continued to Ryan’s to wait in a long line outside the building.

At some point the crowd of people saw a man with whitish colored skin looking out the window of one of the apartment rooms on the first floor who was possibly the man who the police were after, he possibly had a hostage, and so they probably sent someone to find the police to tell them; and they surrounded the apartment room, but I can not remember what happened other than a standoff taking place.

Eventually I went outside to join my family as they waited in the line outside of the Ryan’s building that looked like a house oddly, I remember talking with people in line talking about how this Ryan’s is always so crowded, and one of the people looked like the comedian Jay Leno but he was very short and he acted more like the dead actor Gary Coleman; and so he seemed to be a combination of Jay Leno and Gary Coleman maybe.

I remember a man walking up to my family talking about after college services that he did/performed (helping people who graduate from college with various things), he gave us his business card if we were interested, and at some point we finally went inside the crowded Ryan’s building.

I remember many people probably wearing costumes oddly, one man had a strange costume head/mask that made his head seem/look almost flat, and it was a circular whitish colored head with a simple blackish colored smiley face design for the face; and I wondered if his head was really that flat or if his costume just made it seem that way.

I think that the food was pretty good and that the selection of food was probably pretty good but I am not sure, and that is all that I can remember before waking up.

The end,

Sleep Paralysis And Hallucinations | Light (Good) Versus Dark (Evil)

Sleep Paralysis And/Or Dream 1

The first dream/experience took place about thirty minutes after I went to sleep or was almost sleep last night, I am not sure if I was dreaming or awake or if it was both, either way I remember laying in bed in a dark room; and my brother GC was on the left side of the room sleeping on his bed.

I was laying in bed about to go to sleep, then maybe I went to sleep but woke up a few minutes later still in bed, and I was experiencing sleep paralysis where I could not move and I could not talk; and I realized that this was sleep paralysis so I was pretty calm, and then I saw a hallucination of a mostly orangish colored cat with maybe a bit of small whitish colored stripes/patterns/whatever that was on the edge of my brother GC’s bed.

I thought that this was funny and cute and I felt positive, I reminded myself that this was probably a hallucination because I was having sleep paralysis, and so I decided to enjoy watching this hallucination as the cat moved around on the edge of my brother GC’s bed; and I thought that this was interesting/cool, but then things became scary/freaky and negative.

The cat changed into a freaky/scary/strange bald small naked (it was possibly shedding skin after transforming so it did not look naked in the normal sense, and it probably did not have a penis or vagina) humanoid creäture with pale maybe grayish colored skin with a wrinkled neck like it was covered in foreskin or like its skin was still shedding from transforming; and its body was shaped strangely almost like the shape of the cat combined with a humanoid, no tail or paws or fur or anything like that but a strange body shape, and it was walking/crawling on all fours.

Things were no longer positive and I became afraid like during normal sleep paralysis, I tried to move and yell to warn my brother GC but I could not move and I could only barely mumble, and the humanoid was looking at me smiling with an evil grin like it was trying to scare me; and it slowly crawled/walked/climbed on all fours next to my face staring at me smiling with an evil grin as I struggled to try to move or yell.

My brother GC was still sleep in his bed, I was panicking and I reminded myself that this was probably sleep paralysis and a hallucination that was not real, and so I closed my eyes telling myself this and I took a deep breath to relax; and then in a few seconds when I relaxed a bit I quickly opened my eyes and I tried to jump up in bed, hoping to be able to move and grab the humanoid, but when I opened my eyes my body only shook like I was scared awake.

I was still in my bed and I could move now, the humanoid was gone, and my brother GC was still sleep in his bed; and so I was not sure if I had a dream of having sleep paralysis and hallucinations or if this happened in the real world or if this happened in the real world and in a dream.

Dream 2

I think that the second dream was maybe inspired by the films The Hunger Games and Divergent and/or something like that, I think that the dream possibly involved being poor and oppressed by a government maybe, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of my third/last dream is that it took place at a probably windowless fictional elementary school that possibly was supposed to be P Elementary School or at least inspired by it, I was possibly a student there but I am not sure if I was younger or not, and some of my former classmates were there like my former male classmate WT.

I think that our teacher was a woman and that the school was a large one-story building with large open halls/areas, our classroom was on the left side near the center of the building near a large open area at the center of the building, and the dream was normal at first with us having class; and me talking with my former classmates, and maybe we talked about old memories.

I can not remember most of the dream but at some point in the dream things got strange and something strange was happening that I think involved light/good/et cetera versus dark/evil/et cetera, and maybe we were going to have to pick a side; but first we were going to experience each side, starting with light/good, and so we went on a mission for light/good.

A few of my classmates wanted to join dark/evil, some wanted to join light/good, and some of the others and I wanted to see what both sides were like/about/believed/behaved/et cetera; and even then some of us possibly would not want to choose a side.

Our test mission for light/good is unclear but it involved something about Santa Claus, I guess we were playing the role of Santa Claus who had to go to the side where the dark/evil was to retrieve something (maybe gifts) and then maybe deliver them to people, but I can not remember what the mission was about exactly.

This mission would allow us to see the dark/evil side while also having an idea of something that the light/good side normally does, we walked across the school either to the right side of the school or another building connected to the school, and there was a dark/evil entity who controlled this area.

The walls of this area had a strange substance on the walls with maybe egg-like things like the lair of an insect-like alien, some people were probably trapped in one of the rooms where the main dark/evil entity lived, and we probably got attacked by various creatures as we tried to collect objects (maybe gifts) and maybe help save people who were trapped/imprisoned; and the main dark/evil entity attacked us as well but I can not remember what he looked like exactly, and that is all that I can remember of this dream.
