ok just reading a post that mentioned sleep paralysis and it got me thinking about a series of evernts that happened to my family about 20/25 years ago.
around the time i was born my ma started having these nightmares that there was lights outside her window, really bright flashing ones and voices calling her then a few months after i was born (around '83) she started having these nightmares that she was being dragged out of bed by unseen hands and thrown around the room, lifted up high and swung around the room. now she could never wake my dad when this was happening just like sleep paralysis. now this was pit down to her having nightmares becuase her body was whatever after having the baby that was until one night she had the dream and in it she pushed herself off one of the walls over by the door the next day there was a very distinct foot print on the wall above the door which was well reakky . anyways they started to die down after a bit until one night my ma awoke to find my da slamming himslef against the wall screaming "i got one of ya ya little bastards i got ya!" now wheter he was having a dream bout killing one of me or my siblings we dont knwo but he never called her a lier again.
the story goes on though (sorry) tunrs out my mas sister and brother had simular experiences of being dragged out of their bodies but the could see theire sleeping body below, more like an out of body experience.
i had nightmares for awhile once about being attacted as i got out of bed by a shadowy figure that held me down and spun me round the ground but they where definte dreams.
