Reader's Alien Encounter During Sleep Paralysis Incident

Hi Lon,

I would like to start by saying that I’m a big fan of your blog and have been for a long time now. I enjoy reading of people’s unusual encounters having had quite a number of experiences myself. The experience I want to tell you about happened 11 years ago in June or July of 2008 and has always left me wondering. I’d like to begin with a bit of a background as I think it is significant.

For as long as I can remember I’ve always experienced sleep paralysis. Even as a child I can remember it happening to the point that by the time I was 8 or 9 I believed that it was normal and it happened to everyone. The frequency that it happened would be every 2-3 months maybe 6 or 7 times a year. It wasn’t until I was in my teens that I found that it wasn’t all that common. For the most part I figured my body was still asleep and my brain was awake and I’d just close my eyes and go back to sleep. Although I would occasionally see a shadow moving around the room I thought it was because I was half asleep and never gave it a second thought. That was until the day in 2008 when I woke in the early morning to find myself paralyzed lying on my back.

It was probably around 5am as I could see the sun coming in through my bedroom windows. What I saw next absolutely scared the living sh*t out of me. Looking down I see 4 Greys standing around my bed. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, they were 3 1/2 to 4 ft tall with pale skin, large heads, big solid black eyes, no ears, 2 small holes for a nose and just a slit for a mouth. Needless to say I completely lost my sh*t, I tried screaming and moving, my heart had kicked into overdrive and I could feel it pounding in my chest but I was completely frozen. There were 2 of these creatures standing on the right side of my bed, one at the foot of the bed and the last was on the left side. The one on the left was reaching over and doing something to the left side of my ribs, my blankets were pulled down to my waist, I don’t think it had anything in its hands, no instruments that I could see. At this point these creatures looked at one another and although there were no expression on their faces I got the impression they were surprised I was awake and the one on my left started working faster, whatever it was doing. I thought I was going to die, that this was how people mysteriously die in their sleep. My heart was racing so fast I thought that I was going to have a heart attack if I didn’t calm down. I started to focus on my breathing trying to get my heart to slow all the while the creature still worked on my left side. By this time it had been 3 or 4 minutes.

Once my heartbeat wasn’t completely jackhammering I decided that the only way I was to survive this encounter was to get the creature away from me. Using the same focus I used to slow my heart rate I concentrated on moving my left arm. After 20-30 seconds I did it, my hand jerked up with just enough power to push its hands away. I felt its skin on the back of my hand, it was dry and rough. I don’t think I hit hard enough to hurt it but I’m pretty sure I startled it because it made a bit of a yelp kinda like when you accidentally step on your cat's tail. I didn’t hear this noise out loud but inside my head. Now what happened next I can’t say for sure because the next thing I know is that I’m basically jumping up out of bed. It’s about 930-10 o’clock in the morning, there’s no aliens in my room and I’m left wondering what the hell just happened.

Back to the part about sleep paralysis, this event happened 11 years ago. At the time I was 34 and had countless episodes of sleep paralysis. Since this happened I have only had sleep paralysis once! (This involved another entity and is a whole different story, I did say I’ve had quite a few unusual experiences). I’ve been left wondering if this was all an unbelievably vivid dream or something else and I’ll probably never know which.

Anyway that’s my story take it as you will and thank you for taking the time to read it and thank you again for all the work you do on the blog and in the paranormal field in general. It has provided myself and many others endless hours of interesting and thought provoking reading. SA
