Felt like electricity entered the bottom of my feet, traveling through the body, and exiting the top of my head
Type of Spiritual Experience
Nearly an out of body
A description of the experience
I just stumbled on this website and I am blown away. Both my brother and I experience similar traumatic episodes during the time between sleep and awake. I didn't know he suffered from this until a few years ago (we are both in our 40's). The experience was always about the same but intensified with time and involved a presence of evil approaching, faceless, and soon it was on you and pressing you down, then the bed would begin to tilt downward and there was a sensation of sliding. Of course, to vocalize was nearly impossible and took every ounce of strength.
Other experiences were people I knew would appear in my room and I would ask them things. Then I would realize that it wasn't real and reach over to turn on the light but it wouldn't turn on and then I'd panic. The last major episode was "electrical", like a rewiring where it felt like electricity entered the bottom of my feet, traveling through the body, and exiting the top of my head; then I awoke. I still experience the in between states but they no longer make me petrified.
I hope this helps someone. I was so scared for so many years but I think you can take control in your subconscious state. It has to be a brain chemistry thing.
