Seeing laser lights or weirdly colored bugs or gadgets doing weird patterns
Type of Spiritual Experience
I wonder what is at home that is causing all these?
A description of the experience
Yeah, I actually wish I could be part of a sleep study as to figure this out. I have had hypnagogic hallucinations all my life, and have had real hallucinations as a kid when running a high temp. Mostly I would hear my mother's voice calling my name as I was going to sleep.
The hypnopompic ones started when I moved to Austin in 2005, at the age of 25. I started out having them around once a month. I would see things like hundreds of ladders falling, or lots of bugs coming out of the ceiling. As long as I could wake myself up and turn on my table lamp, it would go away.
When I moved to Houston , that stopped working. They also started coming more frequently. At first, I just had to wake up my husband and they would go away, but then he became part of it, as in I would see him pushing a button or something that would be causing me to have these. That's when it got disturbing.
When I was pregnant with my last son they got much worse. Most of the time, I see bugs. Then I started seeing laser lights or weirdly colored bugs or gadgets doing weird patterns to surround us. I have only had one really bad auditory one and that one was just a few days ago. Normally I will wake up within an hour of falling to sleep and I could swear I could hear the tv on somewhere in the house. It has never been on once when I have gotten up to check.
The bad one was the first time in a long time, and I thought maybe what was going on was really happening. I thought someone was in the house. I now hate the thought of going to sleep due to this. It always happens usually within the first hour to hour and half after I fall asleep. Sometimes, on bad nights I may have two or three a night.
Now I take mild otc sleep meds. Melatonin with excedrin pm, mainly just so I can get sleepy enough to go to sleep, although they don't always work. I have never in my life been able to just lie down and go right to sleep. My mind always races.
I do not want to take rx sleep meds because I have kids to take care of, but I sure wished I could find a way to make them go away for good. Also, i almost never 99 percent of the time have these happen if I go out of town. They always happen in the place that I call home.
In Chinese when we have that, we call it as ghost pushes the bed. You will feel somebody is pushing on you and make you so you can't move. The old people would tell us to call Buddha's name, Oh Me Dou Fu, and that will make you calm and sleep well. Please try it. You need to keep calling until you fall asleep. It will work.
