This has happened repeatedly, the last time was last night.

I woke up in the middle of the night, and as I became more awakened, the room got darker. And there was an eerie feeling, like there was a presence in the room and it was trying to envelop me. I thought something like, "No, you can't be here, you have to leave...you have to leave...God protects me." And then, the room returned to its normal level of low ambient lighting from the windows and everything seemed to be back to normal. And I just laid there with an elevated heart rate until I eventually fell asleep again.

What happened?

^^This^^ Dreaming and woke up, nothing more. If you have any bad habits quit one and you will be amazed at the crazy dreams you will have for a while.

Eyes were adjusting to the light as you were awakening. As I wake up different senses come into play, I’ll see daylight, maybe smell the coffee, then I’ll hear the air conditioner.

If you sense a spirit parasite trying to envelop you, remember to call on Jesus Christ.

But for me it's usually the other way around -- the room gets brighter as I awaken. The ambient lighting was very low, so my eye's rods should have been all on, trying to absorb as much light as possible.

Not claiming to know what this is...but i have read countless incidents where people have either spoken or thought the above emboldened and things return to normal.


IDK, I dont think that can be chalked up to 'imagination'.

If you believe in the imaginary thing in the first place. Why wouldn't some made up saying fix the problem if that is part of your belief system.

To me it would be similar to when a psychic/medium can't do any of their parlor tricks because someone in the room doesn't believe. Neither are real IMHO but are real to the believers.

Well in the religious context, using the name of God is said to have power over evil.


I have heard of this countless times in other sightings, aliens, cryptids, heck, even Bigfoot! (there are some religious people who believe Bigfoot and other cryptids are demons).


Im not a religious person, but I would think, in order to wield the name of God, the person would have to be a 'faithful and devout person'


But who knows if any of this stuff is actually true either?! LOL (there is absolutely no way to prove the existence of a 'God' or agents of evil....so it comes down to what you personally believe to be true.

It actually is possible to prove the existence of God using the scientific method.

Choose faith >>test the Spirit>> observe the fruits
