I really really just want to be told I'm crazy and there's an explanation for all of this. I'll take a solution though.
My first encounter with astral projection was with a Wiccan friend through a Skype call and guidance. After three experiences I was done. Then I experienced sleep paralysis when a year or so later. This could be due to the fact that I was taking prescribed adderall and celexa for ADHD and depression. I never had a bad experience with sleep paralysis besides the initial terror of not moving your body. After the first few times I was able to use for lucid dreaming and eventually out of body experiences. I never saw my physical body though. Not in any of my "walks" was I able to turn around and see my body. I haven't had one in a while.
And then a few months back, I had the most terrifying experience of my life.
I was sleeping and I "woke up" to this rhythmic vibration passing from my head to my toes and onward accompanied with female chanting. The chanting wasn't typical though. It was multiple women in a semicircle behind my head, all the same voice and same word but saying it at different times but within the time of the vibration. It sounded like they were saying "thigh" but obviously it doesn't mean something in this language. After the fourth or fifth wave, I sat up, and went to go walk to the bathroom. Something within myself told me not to leave my body. So I laid back down and tried to wake myself up. The closer I got to waking, the louder the women got and the more intense the vibrations got. Then I heard noises around the house (I was alone, as my husband's in the military and his mom was in Oregon for the weekend as per usual) but it sounded like the front door opened and someone was vaccuming and doing dishes and walking from the living room to the room across the hall. When I finally woke up everything was silent. The house was empty. I checked the time and it was around 3am. Which I've watched so many bad horror movies and heard so much about the "witching hour" I was terrified. I went back to sleep though and told my mom about it the next day. She told me to come over right away and get out of the house and pray. I did and after spending some time with her I vented and came home and put the night in the back of my mind to forget.
I had completely got over it and was back to normal, when a similar dream occurred just last night.
I was sleeping, didn't feel any signs of sleep paralysis, and my mother in law was home this time. I just adopted a cat on new years eve as well. I began to feel my pillow (tucked half under my left side) slide out a little and I heard a female voice say "'At a girl", and Mona hissed softly. I then jolted upright and I could tell I wasn't truly awake, I was out of my body. I left my body completely and floated across the room. Then I remembered my dream from a few months back and rushed back to my body. As I entered, I was pushed to the back of my own mind as if someone else was piloting me. I was standing in my bed, and a thought popped in my head as if it were my own. "It's been a while since I've been in a body." It felt like I was incased in jello and my limbs weren't working right. I started crying and screaming and praying to God, "If I die in my sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep." And all I could think was if I wake up I have to call my mom, I have to tell her. I 'woke up' several times only to find that I was still just sitting up out of myself and had to keep sinking back to get my physical body up. The entity eventually left my body and mind and I collapsed back into sleep. I then dreamt I was at a dimly lit party, and that a friend of mine and my husbands died of alcohol poisoning. I called my husband who was on a flight crying and told him. He threw up over the phone. And that's all I remember.
