Sleep Paralysis

One in five will experience the terrifying phenomenon of sleep paralysis. Victims wake to find that they are paralyzed and unable to move or speak. Many experience frightening visions of demons, ghosts, dark shadows (shadow men) or an old woman (a witch or old hag). For others, there is simply the unmistakable presence of evil.

In extreme cases, these supernatural (spiritual) attacks can occur for decades. Overwhelmed, exhausted, and entirely alone, victims can lead shattered lives dominated by fear, and the fear of social stigma. Those who seek medical advice are often misdiagnosed and labeled psychotic or schizophrenic.

As with the “alien abduction” experience, the experience of “sleep paralysis” can be abruptly stopped by crying out the Name, Jesus!

…God greatly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the Name that is above every name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)

I have recently discovered a way to prevent “sleep paralysis” from occurring. I don’t know if this will work for everyone, but it is worth a try: Every night before going to bed, pray the House Cleansing Prayer.
