Happens all the time to me, I notice I'm more prone to it when I sleep on my back or stomach, or when it's dead quiet, mostly when I fall asleep on my back. So I make sure I sleep on my side now, which has always been more comfortable for me anyway. It's gotten to the point where sometimes I don't panic, just focus on something to make it move.


Yeah, this. Sleeping on my back during the day is almost a guaranteed weird SP/hallucinogenic trip. It's probably been indicated before that I'm extraordinarily weird, so I -try- to induce it. (Sleep Paralysis and hypnagogic hallucination-type experiences transition well into lucid dreaming.) I'm almost entirely nightmare-proof for whatever reason... I just have 'Horror-themed Dreams'. Hard to call it a nightmare when you think it's fun, eh?


The only time I don't like it is when I realize I am supposed to get up because otherwise I'll be late for something. Then it's a bit of a panic, but only because I know I need to be up and am not. My body plays this little "GET UP NOW!" - "naw, man, later!" game with my mind that's less than stellar feeling.

Otherwise, I'm with Trav on this one. I try to induce it too, and works well just as described. I find all kinds of cool story material if I can slip into a semi-conscious, lucid dream state. I can pretty much control my dreams at that point and really open up to a lot of things I'd otherwise simply be along for the ride with.

Them aliens must've been doing WORK on you.

Most times its ever happened to me is twice in one night, that was the night I realized I was falling asleep on my back (I don't normally do that, it isn't as comfortable in the first place). What I found that helps is playing music while you sleep, its something I've been doing since I was a kid, habit I picked up from my dad. I don't know if you have a significant other that you share the bed with, but if you don't load some music on your phone and play it while you sleep.


Thanks for the info, I'll try that.

I've read a lot about SP and I feel sorry for those of you who have to endure it. I've only had it once but I felt pretty powerless and like I was sinking into myself...Like my consciousness was being reduced to the size of an atom within my body. I couldn't move and I thought I was dying. Horrible.

Now Astral Projection/OBEs? I've had hundreds throughout my life. Different than lucid dreams too. MUCH more fun and enlightening.

That's a spot on description of how it feels to me.

Yeah those are pretty fun and enlightening too. :)

Keep your eyes to the skies. You might be surprised how much we miss because we don't spend much time looking up.

Because that's not what the aliens are up to. They're just trying to create special hybrid children, so they can reproduce and eventually breed us off the planet to save their race.

I swear the Doctor took care of that issue already.

To the OP, a tip for help, Trav and Sailor seemed to have mastered it, but the key is to remain calm. Since I don't like demons groping my body, I have to mentally battle it off, sometimes trying to actually utter the word "no" and just wait for about 30 seconds. Over time you can feel the paralysis coming, most times I can wake up before I'm paralyzed, but in the rare times I don't I just remain calm and wait until I gain control of my body.

I get sleep paralysis too. I'm a very anti-authoritative guy and not being able to move straight up pisses me off, even though somehow I always know that everything is fine because it's just a dream.

I'm a very light sleeper so nothing like this has ever really happened too me before. I have had some scary dreams that freaked me out severely, but no paralysis.

I remember one dream I had when I was about 5 years old where Jesus appeared in my room asking me to not wet the bed anymore. That one was trippy. I usually can't remember my dreams but that one was so vivid and life alteringly real it has stayed with me for 45 years. It was like I was awakened by a presence and there he was standing next to my bed. So real, so freaky, so much different than any other dream, I can almost say it was real.

Ive never had it..its an interesting cultural study subject though.. its a human trait but until recently some cultures didnt recognize it much and for others it has been a big deal for centuries.

Hope to NEVER experience it..

Devil get off me



whenever it happens to me i'm always alone in bed, so it probably IS ghosts, aliens or satan.
