Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
Даллас, TX
United States

The witness (who participated in other meetings) was awakened by a black ghostly creature that was actually sitting on the top of his left thigh, holding his hands on his hands as he tried to get out of bed in a semi-paralyzed state. He seemed to be looking at the witness "like a drill sergeant", and it seemed that streams of black steam were coming out of his body. As soon as the witness thought:

"Can he physically touch me?" 

He was looking at his hip as he sat, and the witness felt something like the ringing of a dozen metal wires mixed with a feeling of vibration or electric current.

Earlier before the event, he recalled being dragged out of bed, unable to speak or shout for help to his wife, whom he saw fast asleep on the other side of the mattress. He felt the carpet and the wall graze his head as he was pulled from behind and dragged to the doorway. 

In horror, he thought to himself "Jesus" before he was released. He went to the bed and lost consciousness. 

On the same night of March 1, his wife told him that she was very scared and could not help but feel that something was watching her in their apartment.

The witness, (involved in other encounters) woke up with a black shadowy being actually sitting on top of his left thigh with its hands holding down his arms as he tried to get out of bed in a half paralyzed state. It seemed to stare down the witness “like a drill sergeant” and seemed to have black vapory streams emitting from its body. As soon as the witness thought, “It can physically touch me.?” It looked at his thigh were it was sitting and the witness felt what seemed like a dozen metal wires jingling mixed with the feeling of vibration or an electric current. Previously before this event he recalled being dragged off his bed unable to speak or shout for help to his wife who he could see sound asleep on the other side of the mattress. He felt the carpet and wall brush against his head as he was pulled from his back off the bed and out towards the doorway. Terrified, he thought “Jesus” to himself before he was let go. He walked to the bed and fainted. The same night of March 1 his wife told him that she felt very scared and could not help but feeling that something was watching her in their apartment.

Сонный паралич

  • In a moment, the man suddenly feels on top he bore down on something very hard and does not allow him to breathe, as if strangling.
  • Quite often people say that in that moment, when they sleep, they feel that they can move neither head, nor foot, nor arm, literally nothing. Among other things, a person becomes unbearable fear.
