The Uncontrollable Dreams

Hello, my name is Leila and I’m 27 years old.

From the age of 6 I’ve had all these dreams about me wandering out of my body and going to an evil world, I would wake up crying every night running to my fathers room, my mother left about a week after my birth so he takes care of me.Anyways every night I’d run into his room sobbing and telling him about an evil creature, the other day I decided to ask him about it and he said I’d describe it as a tall skinny black figure with dark blue bloodshot eyes, and nothing else, he said sometimes he’d hear screams, and he’d often catch me running around the house still asleep.

Now obviously this sounds absurd to me but he took pictures that blew my mind, obviously something was going on, it couldn’t have just been a dream, but they continued and at the age of 10 I decided that I needed to find out what was causing these dreadful dreams that had been constantly occurring but I could find nothing.

One day I found a website telling me about something called astral projection, I did more research on it and found out so much more about it, it was quite fascinating.

After about 3 years of learning anything I could about astral projection I decided it was time to move on to a new subject that could also be a part of my dreams, soon I found out about Sleep Paralysis, I thought maybe this could be a part of my dreams because it had to do with demonic figures and things like that but I wasn’t sure.

I continued researching sleep paralysis for about 2 years, it was the year 2001 and I was 15 years old, the dreams finally stopped I was so happy, I continued researching for about 2 years after but stopped researching these things at the age of 17 because I didn’t like thinking about those days and the dreadful dreams I had, and I had almost forgotten about them until 2010 when the movie ’Insidious’ came out and I found it amazing that I could relate so well to it, it was new for me to be able to relate to anybody because I kept that part of my past so far behind me that I didn’t even tell my boyfriends, of course my family already knew.

I’ve been researching this ever since and I just wanted to share my story with people, I of course hope nobody can relate to my awful experience because I would never wish that upon anybody, but I thought people should know about it.I know how crazy how crazy my story sounds, and once again I know not everyone will believe me, but I just wanted to share it.
