    Sleep paralysis, anyone?

    So, I'm watching one of those horror documentaries which is basically about sleep paralysis.

    It's happened to me a couple of times.
    Nasty little things they are.

    I mistook shadows for dark entitites, thought something was sitting on my chest because I couldn't move, wanted to scream but couldn't utter a sound, felt like I was suffocating etc etc. All of it accompanied by an unexplainable feeling of terror.

    For those who don't know about sleep paralysis, it's basically the mind waking up while the body is still sleeping. The eyes can be open while it happens. Due to your state, you tend to mistake the shadow of your jacket for a black cloaked figure, the walls seem weird, everything is coming to get you but you can't scream or move due to your body being unresponsive and so on.

    The worst part of it is that the more stressed you are, the more it happens. So it basically triggers itself.

    During the period that it continually happened, I found that calming myself down and realising that I was suffering from sleep paralysis greatly helped with the hallucinations and panic and it eventually went away.

    Anyways, do you have any experience with it?
    Has it ever happened to you?

    I wonder if it's relatively common.

    3th thread on it xD

    let me just copy paste my comment on the last sleep paralysis thread. Be right back


    edit: I lived on my own for a couple of months in a appartment. There, I had my first and last sleep paralysis.
    Nowadays, my older cousin lives in that same appartment and I moved back in my mom's place.
    My cousin told me he mainly avoids his bedroom since he feels a unpleasant presence..

    and he asked me if I felt the same.. Only when he mentioned it, I realized I had the same experiences in that bedroom but never even considered it to be something paranormal.. the things he described where exactly the same things I experienced. Hearing footsteps at night, a odd, unpleasant feeling like something was leering at you and such.
    And we both had our first sleep paralysis in that room.

    My sleep paralysis was a bit intense and unexpected. I woke up, body stiffened, couldn't move an inch and I had this weird phenomenon..which felt like a huge waterfall crashed inside my head.. My ears where ringing like crazy and I saw a blue light that seemed to be on my forehead..

    All I can say to that is . . . Weird sh1t is weird.

    Re: Sleep paralysis, anyone?

    I'd actually like to get into one. It's been said that sleep paralysis is by far the easiest step to acquire lucid dreaming, which would be pretty damn awesome xD Problem is that no matter how I try, getting into sleep paralysis seems to be impossible...

    I also honestly just want to know what it is that makes everyone talk about it like it's a horror movie..

    Huuuurrrr Durrrr

    Sleep Paralysis is a sudden disruption of your normal sleep pattern...

    Couple deep breaths should trick your brain into waking up your body properly, nothing big.

    Oh dear.
    Well, the reason you both experienced it could be due to your surroundings. Staying alone, a leaky pipe, the pitter patter sounds that most probably have a logical explanation. Even the humidity of a place can have a negative effect on stress levels.

    Hahahahaha it's quite fun to be honest. Plus, it gives you an awesome story to tell.

    I've experienced quite a few while doing sports. It usually happens when I'm physically exhausted along with an uneasy mind.

    I've had giant spiders coming down the ceiling and crawling all over me, a black hooded figure staring at my bed that seemed as if it was getting closer, a black mass sitting on my chest and a couple of beings strangling me. I probably had a couple more that I can't seem to remember now.

    Hell, a while back it happened so often that whenever I woke up in the middle of the night, terror mode on, with the black misty figure looming over me I went ''Meh, sleep paralysis.'' and went back to sleep.

    Well I guess a living nightmare is much worse than a horror movie. Not awesome at all. Don't think that in your lucid dream you choose a harem of supermodels and enjoy a massage :P
    Most probably you are gonna get a monster chasing you to kill you :D Not sexy, not sexy at all :P

    Re: Sleep paralysis, anyone?

    I really want to experience one. I've tried to astral project, but is very hard for me to stay still and try keeping your brain empty from random thoughts. Is there any way how I can easily be able to experience a sleep paralysis? I really want to experience a lucid dream, sleep paralysis, astal projection...

    Hahahaha apparently our definitions of fun greatly differ.

    Seriously though, experience the damn thing three times in a row and you kind of grow accustomed to it. There's always the initial panic, but after you realise what's going on it's quite easy to calm yourself.

    I've been trying to Lucid Dream for nearly 2 years, experiencing sleep paralysis not commonly, but not uncommonly either. You can't "get rid of the fear", otherwise sleep paralysis wouldn't be as infamous as it is. You can tell what's happening, but you can't control the panic.

    Obviously you are stretching the truth if you go as far to say, "it's not scary" or you can simply get out of it by saying, "meh sleep paralysis" because that is not how it works.

    As I mentioned earlier, it tended to happen when I was both bodily and mentally exhausted. I'm an ex swimmer and I usually experienced it during meets, when I was pretty stressed before I went to sleep due to the upcoming events of the next day. Never in hotel rooms by the way. It always seems to happen when I'm at home. It might be pure coincidence though.

    From personal experience I can tell that there are varying degrees of fear when it comes to sleep paralysis. Sometimes the panic is overwhelming, sometimes not. Sometimes I can will myself awake. Sometimes, although my body doesn't respond, after the initial jolt of fear I become fully aware that what I'm experiencing isn't real, which automatically eliminates the panic factor and I can will myself back to sleep. I'm not sure if I even wake up during the process, meh.

    I've even had a couple of pleasent ones, completely devoid of the fear and panic, if we can categorise them as sleep paralysis too. The pleasent ones tend to happen during the day, if I've dozed off on the couch or something. Usually in well lit areas. I guess the light eliminates the panic factor. Though generally speaking, I think the fear factor is related to how mentally awake and aware I am while experiencing it.

    Anyway, why on earth does your experience invalidate mine? Just because you experience it in a certain way doesn't mean everybody else must too.

    My first sleep paralysis occured spontaneously. I was frightened (obviously) but after a minute (or longer?) at it, I decided to just close my eyes and go back to sleep. She did the same.
