For what it’s worth: each night, right before I fall asleep, I see ‘things’ too. One night I asked my DH, very cautiously, wheter he experienced things of the same kind.
How awfully relieved I was to learn that I was not the only one!
Since then we talk about ‘the pictures’ or ‘images’ – mostly when it’s about getting back right out of the process of falling asleep.
The things I see are not necessarily people, but they can be. They change into each other. The difference with dreams is, that I just see them, I don’t really have part in them and there’s no sound. I don’t think I even could act upon them, otherwise I’d wake up. I just let them happen.
This reminds me of your experiences. Can’t you just let them ‘happen’, if it’s about the same thing? I mostly enjoy watching the images, knowing that I soon will be soundly asleep.
Marc, try this. Before you go to bed, eat a popsicle or a carton of yogurt. That is what we used to do for our kids when they had night terrors.
Maybe you have discovered a whole new phenomenon, Boomer Night Terror Syndrome.
When this kind of thing happens, I and a friend have annointed the house with oil and prayed through the house.
When it is in the process (of happening)and it is at night, which is when the prince of darkness and his helpers would work their best, .. first I command them (or it) to leave in the name of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Then I turn on the light, read the Bible and pray. I tell them that they are not welcome here (because they arent and they are rather annoying)and again command them to leave in the name of Jesus. They go for awhile (weeks, months,), but it is a continual process of kicking them out and keeping them gone.
Do you really have this problem or are you just looking for some interesting conversation?
What are your religious beliefs? I am a newbie here.
This happens to me also. I actually open my eyes and see the people staring at me. They don’t say anything, it is like they are studying me or something, very weird. I do not like it either. I usually just roll over in bed to face the other direction and they vanish.
Hi, Marc. I saw your video the other day and I meant to write sooner but I’m a procrastinator… sorry about that.
My cousin and best friend growing up has always had these weird hallucinations just before falling asleep. She doesn’t have them every night. It’s mostly when she’s extremely tired. When we were kids it was more frightening. We would be lying in bed waiting for sleep to come and she would scream something like “There’s a man at the window!” It really scared us both. It seemed more real to her because she wasn’t acutally asleep yet (or she didn’t think she was anyway).
Last year we went on a girls weekend together and sure enough (after a few glasses of wine) as we were going to sleep in our hotel room she started giggling at an angel flying by. Just like old times!
So, I don’t think you’re seeing ghosts at all. I think you’re just seeing images in that weird place between sleep and awake.
