Anyone else get sleep paralysis?

This is a new thread, started from discussion in another thread.

Sleep paralysis is a relatively common (apparently) phenomenon in which a person becomes physically unable to move while half awake and half asleep.

It's often a pretty terrifying experience, and people report seeing shadowy figures and hearing noises.

I personally have had it happen quite a few times. Anyone else?

Happened to me a couple of times when I was extremely stressed/lack of sleep, but instead of seeing shadowing ghosts I was fully awake but could not move. For those few seconds I felt like those people who were operated on fully away but could not move.

for those of you who see shadow figures.. why not just close your eyes for the 10-20 seconds it's happening?

Happened to me once, and luckily i had read about it somewhere so i kinda knew what was happening. I didnt panic, just waited a minute and it subsided. I did not see shadows or shapes and i do not envy those that do.

my brother's friends and I know these as spirit holds. we believe them to be spirits/demons that are fucking with you, doesn't help that it's happened to all of us between 3am and 4am.
i cried the first time i got it, maybe i was 16? now i go through the motions of terror, anger and defiance. just gotta be brave and stand up to whatever you may believe it is, and it'll usually back off.

i figure it must be related to when Alpha_v2 talks about astral planing. possibly you're doing it but haven't fully separated yourself from your body yet... would explain the shadows and such. i have yet to organize my thoughts on this subject though, don't really know too much about it yet.

A few years back I had one of these figures touch me. I have noticed a trend that they only appear when my bedroom door is completely shut. The event was so vivid I still remember it to this day. In the middle of the night, perhaps around 3 or 4am, I was sudden awaken to sleep paralysis, can't move, can't scream, can't open my eyes. I felt these long prickly fingers (like tree branch) running up from the side of my back up all the way to the side of my cheeks. I woke up sweating and my heart was racing. Needless to say many bricks were shat. Other encounters includes the buzzing noise of locust (this one is reoccurring) and dark figure walking out of my room. Because of these pants shitting events, I have more or less trained myself to force my way out of sleep paralysis. First thing I do is to do not panic, because when fear takes over, you are fucked. Next, really try hard and concentrate on moving your finger or toes, once you have any of them moved you are free. The most fucked up thing with these dark figures is that they slowly fade away when I am about to break out of the sleep paralysis, as opposed to suddenly disappearing.

repost my experience from fucked up shit thread.

Another time when I was trying to let myself fall into sleep paralysis, I felt my body floating upwards, perhaps half a meter away from my body, then I didn't like that feeling I felt myself sinking back into the bed again. Some whacky stuff.

Not so much spirits or dark figure as your brain playing mind tricks. The fear manifests in to such, i guess.

i'm thinking these shadows may be associated by the fact that when you wake up during this rem stage a part of the brain that is connected to fear kicks in..

but what makes it interesting is that some people see these even after they're out of sp, and it's kind of the same experience to people

HAHA yeah you will try talking or yelling but you wont be able to make a sound i tried it, you just have to close your eyes and stay calm and youll wake up.

there are times where i take a nap and like 1 min in i feel like i went into SP..

im awake but i cant move i can feel something watching me sometimes i see it. but i nvr nvr hear sounds...

for those of you who hear shit what do you hear? i just see dark figures...

it used to happen to me quite frequently back home. I started experiencing SP after my friend told me about her experiences. I was like "lol ok der" but then it began to happen to me. She heard voices of some woman but fortunately I never have.

1st time it happened I remember seeing a static screen from a TV or something with the noise (I don't have a tv in my room). Another time I saw some sort of figure, which at the time didn't scare me as much as it does now just thinking about it. It feels like something huge is sitting on you rendering completely immobile. If I snap out of it and fall asleep in the same position, it happens again so I usually roll over to the other side.

It's happened to me quite a bit, my psychology professor said it was something to do with your spine not connecting with your brain which is why you become paralyzed. I don't really remember the exact term used since it was about 4 years ago.

Been happening to me every night for months.

I'd fall asleep and notice that I'm dreaming and that's when the nightmare starts. I'd get an eerie vibe in my dream and sooner than I'd imagine it's a full blown nightmare. A few moments later I'd wake up but can't move I used to try breaking free but I can only jolt my body.. and whenever I do move it feels like I'm being pulled down and like someone's shaking whatever I'm trying to move.

I remember my first time having sleep paralysis, when I was 15, I woke up while sleeping on my side and I remember seeing the back of a cut and beat up girl on my bed, and she turned around and it looked like the girl from the exorcist. Scared me shitless.

Lately I've been trying to fall back asleep when in SP, even trying to control my thoughts. I've never been able to fall asleep until I burst my way out of it. What I try to think about whenever I'm in SP is my pet fish. It works sometimes, but sometimes you just can't kick the fear

Very easy fix for this. Sleep on your sides only. Don't sleep facing up. Use to get it all the time when I was younger but I read online that if you sleep on your sides it will go away..and it did.

never play the ouji board !!,.. your never talking to the person but the demon who is imitating them,.. it's job is to focus on the weakist person.

for tattoos i have a hanya on one side of my chest and on the other a severed samurai head.
