Sparodically over the past year, I have had something very strange happen to me in the night. The thing that happens is that I will wake up randomly at about 3 in the morning. When I try to go back to sleep I suddenly feel a grip upon my neck and a heaviness upon my chest, as if someone was sitting on I. I usually begin to try to move, but am competely paralyzed. This goes on for usually two minutes. During these occurances I pray to His Majesty to end it and it usually works.
Last night this occurance happened again but stronger than ever before. When I woke up, I immediately felt a grip upon my neck. I could clearly feel what felt like fingers around my neck choking me. I could not move. I was lying flat on my back and saw what looked like smoke hovering above me.
I closed my eyes, as I have never seen such a thing and no longer wanted to.
I began to pray to Jah to end this as quickly as it always ends, but this time was different. This occurance lasted around ten minutes which is much longer than what I'm used to. Whenever I opened I eyes, I saw this smoky mass hovering above me.
One thing that I must note that I thought was strange, is that I was not afraid during this whole time. It didnt feel like a duppy or demon was present.
The choking stopped after about ten minutes and I regained my ability to move. I thanked Jah and went back to sleep.
Does anyone know why this is happening? Have any of the I's experienced this? Why does it happen?
