I encountered an entity/being which was standing outside. I was getting ready for bed and laid down. 5 minutes later, I felt as if I couldn’t move. The same sensation I get when I have sleep paralysis. The thing is, I never had sleep paralysis going to sleep, I only get them waking up. Instead of seeing things inside the room, I saw a faint light coming from the window (different from the moon’s natural lighting/street lamps/etc). Mind you, the blinds are closed, but I could make out a silhouette of a being standing right outside my bedroom window. It was facing to side (profile) from what I could tell. It had an enlarged head but stood like a human. It wasn’t very tall and I knew it wasn’t a person/human. It didn’t feel supernatural either; it strongly felt extraterrestrial. I heard it make a few noises but it was very vague. During the entire encounter, the being was stationary and did not move or change direction. When I regained the ability to move, I got out of bed to see if it was still there. The entity was still standing there judging by the silhouette in the lighting. That’s when I realized it was not an ordinary sleep paralysis. Usually in sleep paralysis the visions, shadows, sounds and figures all disappear once you regain control of your body. That was not the case in this event. I didn’t bother looking out of the blinds. A gut feeling or something told me not to look through the window. It didn’t feel threatened nor did I. Its presence was intimidating but not hostile in nature. That’s the vibe I got from the encounter. About 10 mins from the initial sighting, it left. The being and the faint lights both vanished like a blind spot. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
