Location: Sunnyvale, California
Date of Encounter: May 1998
One afternoon after school I went home and saw my dad doing his bills on his desk. I went to my room and was so tired that I took a nap. After a while, I woke up for I needed to use the bathroom. I stood up and wondering why my body and my eyes felt so heavy, but I still pushed myself to walk out of my room to go to the bathroom.
I opened my room door and saw my dad still doing his bills then went to the bathroom. When I was washing my hands, I looked up to the mirror and saw myself looking so tired but I still went on and finish washing my hands. When I went back to my room and opened the door, I freaked out! I saw my body still lying on my bed as if still sleeping. I jumped on my body right away and try to wake myself up and somehow my body felt so stiff and rubbery. I remember my grandma telling me something like this happened to her and what she did to wake up is to relax your spirit on your body, try to move one of your toes and pray. So, I tried to relax but it took me a few minutes (which actually felt like forever because I'm still freaking out) and I was finally able to relax. At the same time I was praying and was finally able to move my toe and woke up. As soon as my body woke up, I felt so tired and felt like I struggled so much — I was catching my breath. I got up and went outside right away to see my dad and I told him what happened. He said, "Just relax here," and he massaged my feet while doing, still, his bills.
