Am i having sleep paralysis or a spiritual experience?
For the past year, I've been experiencing this similar dream. A dream I can't seem to just google and get a straight answer.
Every few weeks I'd dream about not being able to wake up. I'd be able to move my hands, and I can sometimes get out of bed. I'd hear voices, usually in the form of a radio, or a woman singing. Everything is heavy, as though gravity is times by 10, which affects my ability to pound the mattress in attempts to wake myself up.
My room, my dogs, my stuffies, the stuff on my walls would still all be there, all of my furniture and time on the clock- I can all see it.
The nights I'm able to get out of bed, I can roam the hallways. (The first time I fell out of my body and into my table, trying to scramble back into my body before whatever the frick was waiting for me.)
My vision is very fuzzy, like my brain put a white fog filter on my room. Sometimes I feel like something is about to attack me, watching me, or hovering right over my body.
The dream I had last night— not even an hour after I went to sleep– I was able to move much better than I could, but I was still very dizzy and heavy, heard the radio men, and ringing in my head. I'd talk to myself without realizing it, and my dogs seemed to have an English response sometimes-. In attempts to gain self-consciousness, I got out of bed and wobbled down the hallway to my parent's room, accidentally hitting my head on things like if everything I did was delayed by a few seconds, where their door was wide open and they were distressed. But they couldn't see me. So I decided they couldn't be much help, got back into my room, where I crawled in bed and started screaming and babbling, tried hitting my own face to wake myself up before finally waking up— in my bed— laying down.
After I woke up, I was still dizzy in waves, and whenever I tried to go back to sleep I'd hear knocking/banging sounds immediately waking myself up again-.
Not to mention the fact that I was dreaming in my dream before I could get out of bed.
I know this is probably not sleep paralysis, because I can obviously very much move. But since it isn't, then what frick kind of spiritual world level scenario did I fling myself into and how the heck do I get out? Or atleast tell me what it means so I can fix it. ;;
