I was lying in bed half a sleep, and I saw a flash out of the corner of my eye. I try to look over, but none of my body can move, and I clearly see a figure standing beside my bed. I was freaking the f*ck out, until finally, all of the sudden, I forced my body to move and I yelled "F*CK YOU SATAN!!!"
I thought it was a dream, until i realized I was awake through the whole thing.
And then early that morning, I woke up to my lamp crashing into the ground. The entire thing fell off my desk and shattered.
Voodoo witchcraft by devil worshiping gypsies, I kid you not.
I have had the same thing in bold happen to me.
In my experience I was laying in my side, close to the fetal position.
I don't remember falling asleep, but I was laying there just as real and vivid and clear as the reality that I am in now, except I COULD NOT move. I could look around, but I COULD NOT move.
It was one of the scariest things that has ever happened to me.
I swear to God that as I laid there paralyzed I trying my damnedest to move. I tried so hard to move that I started seeing stars, black and red, and I felt as if I was going to pass out.
Eventually my whole body jerked and I was back to normal, although the vividness or reality did not change.
