This group has been studying human consciousness, parapsychology, and ESP for over 60 years now. I know I get the feeling of the presence of a ghost. I get the feeling of a presence of a ghost when i am trying to get to sleep at night. The first time it grabbed my arm, and I was trying to tell my mum and dad what happened, but I lost my breath and my words wouldn't come out.They have concluded that most people have some degree of ESP—and as you mentioned, it can be strengthened with practice and training. It also happened to me last night and I got a cold tingling feeling all over my body, and even my jack russell dog started barking.Many of their early studies were done with self proclaimed psychics.
It usually lasts for a couple of minutes/seconds, although to the person experiencing this, it can feel like a really long time. Then in November, I've also had a few friends and family deaths since. I feel like i have somebody with me all the time even when am home alone like I am 6 out of 7 days of the week..
I get cold numbing feelings, shivers , goosebumps and just major tingely feelings all over, but the coldness is surreal it really does NUMB my whole body.
This occurs shortly after waking, or just before falling asleep.
You cannot move any body part, cannot speak, and you only have minimal control over blinking and breathing. I lost my daughter a year ago on the 3rd July by stillbirth at 42wks and my son by miscarriage.
So, why do some people feel in the presence of paranormal activity?
The number of people who feel absolutely nothing in the presence of strong paranormal activity is very, very small—however, factors such as your physical health, your mental and emotional state, your intelligence/awareness, and your belief system could all play a role in how you respond. There have been many scientific studies done on Extra Sensory Perception, which seems to be the ability used when sensing a spirit or haunting.
I don't know long this whole feeling stayed, but it eventually went away. Don't worry — what you experienced is pretty normal.
It's called the "catatonic state" (or sleep paralysis), and I have experienced it twice myself.
I woke up in the middle of the night and I could see the room and everything else in it.
