I want to first say "Thank You!" for this site. I have always had "interesting" situations throughout my life in regards to supernatural occurrences. It's very refreshing to see that other people, as myself, have these out of the ordinary experiences.

I was brought up in a Christian family environment. The episode in particular that I wish to share here took place one night around 10:00pm; in my bedroom which was off of the living room on the front right corner of our house.

I was 17yrs of age and the year was 1969. I always slept on my side or stomach, for some reason that is still a mystery to me; I felt a need to sleep on my back. My bedroom door was opened to the living room and I could see light from the kitchen doorway halfway lighting the living room wall. I was slowly going into the alpha state before sleep when three loud powerful blows to the outside wall of my room boomed with a deafening sound. I was immediately frozen with "sleep paralysis" fully aware of all surroundings. I tried to physically call out but found that no sound came out as my mouth would not open. The light on the living room wall was still as it was before; this was the only re-assuring feeling I had as the "sleep paralysis" was a new sensation for me.

It seemed the more I tried to move the more severe the paralysis became. I had a very eerie feeling of an entity in the room with me, actually just left of me, and it hoarsely whispered my name in my ear with a guttural animal resonance. I kept struggling trying to break free of the paralysis repeating over and over again in my mind, "Oh my God help me!"......"Oh my God help me!"

My struggling became more and more intense with no freedom of this perilous helplessness. The sound in my ears was nothing less than a horrible groan-like, hideous train-like roar. My physical body began to lift off the bed horizontally and rose slowly towards the ceiling; all the while struggling to free myself, repeating my urgent prayer to God for help. My head seemed as if it was about to go through the ceiling, when a horrible mask-like face came screaming at me. The next thing I remember was that I was as limp as a dishrag on my bed lying on sheets soaking wet from sweat.

This has never happened again but I have had numerous "sleep paralysis" episodes with the terrible sounds in my ears. It doesn't matter if I sleep on my back, sides, or happens none the less.

I am open for anyone wanting to share their experiences, or maybe explain what the meaning of that frightening episode was so long ago.
