Inside the Mind of Darenh

These are my experiences with being conscious while my body is still asleep:

    Here are the descriptions of the different demons I have seen:
  1. The first demon I ever encountered was the most frighening of all because I couldn't see it. I remember opening my eyes and I tried so hard to move my body but I couldn't. What I could feel was the darkest presence I had ever felt in my life while desperately trying to move/awake myself from being paralyzed. This occurred three times in the past 2 years. Still gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.
  2. The second demon was more or so the same except it took a physical form. I didn't see it up until the last few seconds of my sleep paralysis before I awoke in a heavy sweat. My head was turned right during the entire sleep paralysis but during the last few moments of it, my head turned to the left in a very quick jerky motion and I was staring at my ceiling. All I could see in front of me was a dark blob of manifested darkness. For the last second or so I could see a head start to peek out of the blob but thankfully I woke up before I looked at it any longer.
  3. The third demon I encountered was a 9 foot man with the head of an owl. It had on a black tuxedo and it was standing behind my television in the corner of my room staring at me, not letting me move. After constant struggling I managed to induce pain to myself by clawing my fingers with my nails resulting in me waking up. Although you can't fully move during sleep paralysis it is possible to wiggle your toes or even move your fingers a little bit so with enough determination, I was able to "induce pain" while in that state.
  4. The fourth and final demon I ever encountered was a clown with an enormous amount of balloons trailing behind him. This one wasn't as frightening as the others but the amount of detail on it's face was terrifying. I remember telling myself over and over again "It's not real. It's not real. It's not real, you'll wake up soon enough. Whatever you do DO NOT open your eyes". And eventually I ended up waking up. Moral of the story, sleep paralysis blows.
