Hello,

I am Greg Pocha and am also an expert in the category of Paranormal phenomena here at All Experts. I would like to add to the answer that you received from the expert that you originally asked. It is good that you included enough details so that one can form an educated opinion, any less and your individual situation could have been minimized.



What you had gone through was a normal psychological response to the events that took place prior to your retiring for the night. You should know that what ever you do during your waking hours not only is filtered through your conscious "aware" mind, but is also being absorbed into your subconscious mind. As a matter of fact, what enters the subconscious mind may go unnoticed by your conscious mind. While you where doing your research, both minds were involved. You may have consciously been thinking of other things before you went to bed, but the research was still fresh on a subconscious level.



When you sleep the conscious mind give way to the subconscious. Your awareness becomes dormant while the subconscious mind becomes active. It was this mind, this altered state of consciousness that brought the demon research   back to the front and thus the theme of your dreams. Now if you add that to other elements of "horror" and demons that your subconscious mind has accumulated over the years from watching movies, television, reading and folklore/urban legends [everything is stored, whether you realize it or not} you have the makings of bad dreams. The dark eyed boy is stereotypical of "Hollywood" demons for example.



The basic principal of lucid dreaming is in a nutshell what you experienced. If you concentrate on something prior to falling asleep, you can control your dreams. Another thing that you do not have to worry about is the fact that you said a few names out loud. Your intention was not to invoke. You are quite safe.And on a final note, the noises that your roommate heard should be recognized as what they were - a coincidence.

The expert you asked explained what likely happened and I agree. I just thought that you deserved to know why it happened.

I`ve been reading books about ghosts for a long time and have seen numerous movies about them as well. I can point out what is more likely, what is unlikely and site true examples from the subject. I have also been writing fictional ghost stories off and on since high school. I have been keeping a comprehensive listing of haunted sites for a long time and have visited a few local haunted sites in my area. I do not consider myself a ghost hunter or ghost researcher. I have no college or univerity training in the subject, but I have postulated a few personal theories about the phenomenon. I recently published the book, "Volunteer Ghosts," about ghosts in Tennessee. Another thing, because ghost shows are becoming so popular, I'm getting deluged with messages from people thinking they have ghosts. Please try to bust your own experiences before asking me about them. So many people who believe in ghosts and experience things want proof so much that they are coming to me for answers. Please check your grammar and proofread your messages too. I can't understand what you're asking if your questions aren't legibly precise. Don't make me try to decipher your message. Keep your messages short and to the point! Do not post long rambling inquiries! I do not know anything about demonology; no questions about evil spirits or possession. That has nothing to do with ghosts or haunted houses.

Experience

I have had very brief exposure in doing field work; I hope to get back into it someday.
