Night Terrors are believed by most to be simply a sleeping disorder. Basically, what they are is a person in the deepest level of sleep, that suddenly wakes up in the middle of the night, usually jumping into an upright position in bed and screaming.
The individual will be be filled with fear and shock. In many of these cases those that suffer from night terrors will not remember what it was that they dreamed of or what it was that frightened them. Many will not even remember waking up in the middle of the night. Night terrors mostly happen to the very young children between the ages of 2 and 6 years old but can happen to anyone, at any time, at any age.
There is not a whole lot that is understood about night terrors at this point in time. It is because the person is in the deepest stage of sleep that causes them to be unable to remember what it was they experienced that frightened them. When arising from a night terror however, the victim will sometimes see what their doctors will call hallucinations, but may in fact be spiritual apparitions. These apparitions have been of human figures, animals, and other things of a frighting nature.
Apparitions taking place right after a night terror is one of the clues that might link Night Terrors to being supernaturally induced. People usually see apparitions in spiritually connected places and incidents such as haunted buildings, grave yards, battles fields, at ones death bed, seances, and so on. It is true also that they can be seen in other places as well but it’s much less common.
One such story told by a woman, her son, her brother, and her youngest brother in law, all experienced night terrors around the age of 5. They are all different ages so these night terrors happened at different years for each of them. What she told me next was what really caught my attention and the suspicion that night terrors may be induced by an outside, paranormal force in some incidents.
Each one of them described to her seeing a man with white hair, “yucky teeth” as they described them, and would carry a knife as he chased them. Not one knew what the other has said to her. It seems more than coincidental that 3 males of all different ages, when at the age of five years old would see the exact same entity during their night terrors.
In another instance, a husband and wife both dreamed of an entity leaping upon them and attempting to choke them to death. The entity appeared at the foot of the bed and lept exactly as the other experienced it. The husband, however, was able to 'seize' the entity and repel it, which it then disappeared.
And this out of body report; "When I was 16 or so, in a completely different house, I had an out of body experience. I woke up on my ceiling. I looked around my room and i looked down and saw myself sleeping. I was almost scared that i was dead except for the fact that I had read about out of body experiences before. I was too scared to move anywhere so I stayed there looking at myself sleep and looking around my room. I could hear my momma on the phone downstairs. I was dead quiet.
The whole time I felt a weird pressure in my gut, i guess my belly button area. I wasn't gonna move so i decided to just lay back down and i floated down into my body. I found out later the feeling in my gut was this "spiritual cord" that attached our spirit to our body and it gets detached at death, kind of like being detached from our mothers at birth.
That experience solidified something for me that changed the way i felt about death. We don't die when we leave our bodies because I was completely myself with the same memories and experiences and I wasn't in my body. Very profound experience.."
