An Incubus, otherwise known as a nightmare, is a male spiritual demon that preys on women during there sleep while dreaming. It’s counter part the Succubus, also known as a nightmare, is the exact opposite of an incubus. The Succubus is a Female spiritual demon that preys on men while they are asleep and sometimes even taking semen to impregnate itself. These are spiritual demons from medieval times that have been causing fear and personal disturbance among humans for centuries. Disturbances like people waking up in the middle of the night and are not able to move.
A common symptom people experience, which is defined as “HYPNAGOGIA” and/or “Sleep Paralysis”, is the result of a transitional state of mind from waking up to falling asleep. This is the feeling you get when you are asleep and you think you have woken up but you can’t move your body. If the victim is attacked and try’s to struggle and move the demon is said to get mad and be more aggressive.
Many people have reported incidents that this happened to them and described it as a pressure on there chest as if someone is laying on them. These are all dream related incidents that these people have been experiencing but they think they are real. These demons leave the body during sleep paralysis and leaves the person trapped in its thoughts and frightened. Some people will do a lot of research on this experience they had while sleeping and find it out to be these sex demons or find out that they are experiencing symptoms of hypnagogia. These people will also find information online of biblical resources on these creatures and will discover prayers on how to get rid of these spiritual demons. These resources come from the bible and written in the text is a prayer that someone would say in order to try and get rid of these spiritual demons. It is said that after an attack happens that the victim can catch such intense feelings to where it starts to cause problems within that person. This person then continues to have these dreams and feelings until he is able to get help to get rid of the spirits.
