I remember sometime last year i kept waking up with these long cuts, or scratches on my legs. Out of no where, some people said its the devil riding your back, anyone else have anymore information on this subject? I did do alot of things last year that regret, so this year i plan to have the best year ever. I think it happens when you don't pray enough, its kind of weird.

The DEVIL...Riding your back..LOL.

That was a story parents said to scare their children....

The Devil is myth...and even if he WAS real...He is locked up in hell according to the bible...

but you can never take the bible for fact....so who knows

ya, but only minor scratches. Stuff that i could've done myself while sleeping. Except that one time, i had really short fingernails. Short enough where i couldn't scratch myself. so i always wonder how i got them. There's some pretty creepy African stories about how they get there.

This universe is infinite. Sometimes I think we are living in hell. Maybe the demons know how to get out of hell and visit this earth. Multidimensional travel is possible. Probably how those damn Aliens fly: Black holes, worm holes or whatever.

I've awaken with scratches and minor cuts, however, my fiancee has 3 cats that climb into bed sometimes. I wonder if the cats are the culprits at times.

I've woken up scratched, cut, and bruised. In places there's no way I could have done it on my own. I have some stories you wouldn't believe...well considering your experiences you just might.

ok to the post that says the devil is in hell..no he is not...the bible says that satan is here..roaming the earth. he will not be bound to hell until after "the beast" comes. look it up if you dont believe me..
and btw, i get marks too. it stopped for awhile. I am only getting marks now, not scrathes. some look like thumb prints. they do not draw blood. i only get them if i fall asleep..they dont happen if i am just lying in bed. last night i fell =asleep for an hour..had a sweatshirt on...and there were some there. when i was younger i used to bleed. my mom would bandage me up because i had scratches on my back and my stomach. now i just pretty much get weird marks on my arms. i thought i could explain it on the mattress..but when there are 3 blankets under me, and it doesnt happen while lying there watching a movie, its really starting to make me wonder.

Yep.My nails are kinda soft so they break easily,leaving jagged edges.So that plus the fact that I used to be a restless sleeper (covers used to wind up on the floor sometimes) and also the most I wear to bed is a vest & shorts,meant some rather interesting marks on my person come morning.It never happens now I'm older coz I've trained myself to sleep better and if I notice a broken nail before bedtime,I make sure I clip it.

There's this African story that if you wake up tired & battered with dirty feet it means a witch came during the night to take you away to do some work on her land.That used to have me checking the soles of my feet when I woke up for quite a while when I was a kid.LOL.

I actually did wake up with cuts and scratches all over my back and I didn't know what it was,they didn't hurt and they were usually old.Creepy

I know what he is talking about. That is actually a metaphor, but is an actual condition, or occurence, if you prefer to call it that.

I feel you man. Hell is here on earth. I do not believe it's a destination after death of the physical body. I agree with your thoughts on multidimensional travel, etc. Those who are on a higher level, mentally, can comprehend those things and question like you do.

That was actually happening to me nightly after I moved into my new place. I think it had something to do with this place. What people don't realize is that it is a form of sleep paralysis too. You can't move and you are filled with fear. It's strange and can be terrifying to experience. That started happening to me when I was young though. So, it is not a surprise, although it can still be scary. You definitely don't look at life the same as you did before those things start happening to you, so I know where you are coming from.

the "devil riding on your back" is another name for an actual medical condition called sleep paralysis

This has happened to me only twice and I hope I never,EVER experience it again! The terror that you go through as you try your hardest to move is just awful.:(

That's right! You know exactly what I mean. It's not fun at all. I guess the trick is how to break out of it as quick as possible.
