"I see demons."


"Strange sleep disorder makes people see demons" reads the headline. Catching, but true?

I think the sleep paralysis is a good start for exploring the sinister things that sometimes happens in that awake/asleep state, but it's only the beginning. I've experienced what I hope is the whole gamut of nocturnal happenings. Some are pleasant, if you know what I mean ;) Some are horrific. Some are rather deadly.

Remember Nightmare on Elm Street? Those types of things (minus some of the gore) have happened in my sleep, waaaay too often to want to remember.

While an innocent person asleep is a tempting victim for evil, unless you have other things happening during your waking hours, it's good to chalk any suffocation/paralysis feelings during sleep up to "Sleep paralysis". However, if your waking hours are tormenting you, you might have a demon or other evil entitiy attacking you.

Use scripture to defend yourself if you're spiritual. 1 John 4:4 is my favorite spiritual phrase:  "He that is in you [Jesus Christ] is greater than he that is in the world [devil].

For you skeptics, consider Shakespeare:

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
- Hamlet (1.5.166-7), Hamlet to Horatio
your philosophy ] i.e., philosophy (or learning) in general.
The emphasis here should be on "dreamt of", as Hamlet is pointing out how little even the most educated people can explain.
