Last night I randomly woke up from my sleep. I was kind of awake and I turned to my side. As I did that, I felt like my soul was getting sucked out of my face?! I could feel my astral body starting to sit up while my physical body was lied on the bed... my face started going numb, then my neck, I kept stopping it before it got to my legs and feet. My face, neck and torso were numb, I was awake and I was trying to say stop but I couldnt. My voice was gone. I would just keep visualising my astral body lying in the same position as my physical body to stop it from escaping. I definitely had NO intentions of astral projecting. While that was happening, I also noticed that my closet door was shaking back and forth and I kept hearing quiet knocks...
Is it possible that some sort of an entity was forcing me to astral project?
Normally force astral protection comes from a place that may be due to the body being sick or a extremes case of fear. What you have experience sounds more likely sleep paralysis, you seeing your astral body could be something trying to attack it in the astral world as will. If you have not cleansed your room latterly than its best to get onto that.
It may also be if you traveled in the astral realm in any unwanted areas that you weren't welcome in. This could be the being sending you a warning not to enter his or her territory. If this is the case, say sorry and try to avoid that area from now on. If not and this happens again, there is a way to stop this.
I've personally found this method helpful when I was attack in my sleep years back. I would ask spirit guides to help me during my sleep paralysis and the attack had stop. This could also just be a case of putting up stronger form of protection.
Or, it might be a spirit that is trying to contact you and has been showing signs to you for a month or show, but you may not have been getting the message loud enough.

It sounds more like a classic case of " Sleep Paralysis " which is a medical, not a magical condition. People used to believe it was caused by demons, spirits, or witches, but we now know better. If this is something which happens repeatedly you should really see a physician about it because there are other sleep disorders which can be associated with it.
You can read an excellent discussion about it on WebMD, a handy layman's site about common medical conditions at https://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/features/sleep-paralysis-demon-in-the-bedroom#1
Wikipedia gives a good definition of the condition of "Sleep Paralysis" as: " Sleep paralysis is when, during waking up or falling asleep, a person is aware but unable to move or speak. During an episode, one may hallucinate (hear, feel, or see things that are not there), which often results in fear. "
I've had similar experiences. It has occurred to me awake as well as waking into it. I have seen darkness but no form. Moving your toes is how many find they can break the paralysis, try that next time. Mine has occurred once following a physical touch while I was awake.
