Strange Lumberjack Man Sleep Paralysis

Last night I had a weird sleep paralysis episode featuring what I’ve come to understand is generally called the lumberjack man. Here is what I recorded when I woke up about it.

I dreamed I was editing a yard with something like the open sim editor floating above it. Then I went inside the house/apartment and talked to someone about playing some kind of game. Then I was editing those trees again and turning the needles of a pine tree more blueish. Then I started drawing some lichens that were on the tree on some paper. Then I had some of the lichens in my hand and I had the impression they were sentient so I started taking to it. Nothing happened so I gave up and tried to go to bed. The house was like a larger version of my apartment but with the kitchen in an area leading to the bathroom instead. I closed my eyes to sleep and thought I saw someone. I sat up and turned on my phone’s flashlight and saw my freezer door close and then a man peaked around the corner. He had a beard and was wearing red flannel. I tried to say something to him but found I couldn’t speak. Then I woke up with a start. When I realized I really was awake I felt the need to sit up and check that I locked the door to my apartment. I had. I laid back down and tried to go back to sleep for awhile but I couldn’t fall back asleep. Then my alarm went off. I hear people arguing outside. It is a fullmoon.

I would classify this as a level 4.5 dream.
