    Really after a while it's not what you see or hear that terrifies you, it's that feeling of being trapped in your own body and the panic you feel as you desperately try to wake yourself up. I've been plagued with bouts of sleep paralysis for over 40 years, the hallucinations are nothing, I know they're not real, it's the thought of never coming out of it that keeps me from going back to sleep

  • Cael Dereck
    Cael Dereck 5 days ago

    I had a case of sleep paralysis. I was in my bedroom and I started to fall asleep. Thankfully, I had let the lights on. I remember that my arm started moving as I fell asleep, and next thing I know, I have that knowledge that there is an evil witch in my bedroom, and I felt very threatened. I couldn't move, though, no matter how much I tried.
    Thankfully, again, I knew what sleep paralysis was, so I knew what was happening. I managed to remain calm until it was over. Then I jumped off of my bed.
    Not my best memory.

    I have had something similar to this happening. I couldn't move my right side of my body from the face down. I felt like I was having Bells Palsy. The right side of my face was swollen and numb and could not move the right side of my mouth. This went on for about a half hour. This continued at a red

  • Krekács Balázs István

    When you're in deep sleep phase your brain only keeps active the parts necessary to stay alive, so the ones responsible for breathing, heartbeat etc. Sience still can't explain why, but it can happen that you wake up and regain conciousness BEFORE your brain switches on the parts responsible for cobtrolling your body. As a result you just lay in the bed unable to move your body. Breathing also feels very hard as during sleep your breathing slows down and in this state your brain still "thinks" your body is sleeping. This happened to me a few times but luckily I had no hallucinations.

  • Stephanie Parker
    Stephanie Parker 12 days ago +1

    How is sleep paralysis life-threatening? We going into sleep paralysis every time we go to sleep. Our body does this so it's unable to move and act out our dreams. If you become conscious while in sleep paralysis, your awareness is operating in a nonphysical reality that can instantly manifest by thought. If you wake up in paralysis and you are afraid, you will manifest a not so great experience. If you wake up in sleep paralysis with the intention to astral project and explore consciousness, then your experience will not only be fun but life-changing. Nothing to fear at all.

    TechYeti 15 days ago +2

    One time I was laying in bed while on the phone. I had started to doze off as soon as the person said goodnight. Wanting to say it back, I panicked but couldn't move. As soon as I heard the hang up dial, my eyes shot open, but instead of being in my room, I was laying on a stone bench with candles on the right side of me. The bench was connected to a path that was floating above a dark lake that had fire on it's surface. The sky was a deep red, and I was creeped tf out. I got up, and followed the path to a large rusted iron gate, with a tall black human-shaped shadow in front. Evey time someone asks me what my worst nightmare is or my worst experience with sleep paralysis, this is the only thing I tell them. Still freaks me out and it's been at least 3-4 years

    Happens to me once in awhile. Right after I fall asleep "something" wakes me up. Usually a noise from my kitchen. I can't move for a bit. I've never seen anything but I think I have heard things that aren't real, while I can't move. Not voices but pounding or something.

    Holy crap. Its way scarier after I typed it out. Now im terrified. Its gonna happen tonight. 😰

    Sleep paralysis only had a bad knock cus people panic and all this negative stuff around it. It can actually be pretty amazing, like it can feel so nice almost like you are on drugs, yea you can’t move but you can lay in a cloud of bliss almost. Don’t get me wrong it can get scary af, I’ve had the shadow people choke me before, tell me they were going to kill me, and others screaming in my face or just standing and starring at me. I’ve learned that if you don’t get scared and tell them to go away they do, if you say it with confidence. You don’t have to say it out loud as you can’t talk, but just say it in your mind and mean it with every part of you.

    The key to sleep paralysis is to calm down. Whatever you see, hear or feel, ignore it and just close your eyes. The more you force yourself to wake up, the more you won't really wake up. I constantly have sleep paralysis and all I do is calm down. Sometimes I pray "The Lord's Prayer". It helps me calm down. Then I wake up.

    Just to let you all know sleep paralysis is not dangerous to you at all
    It is just an affect that starts when your depressed, stressed, have an anxiety or even how you lay on your bed.
    All it does is scare you and cannot harm your at all.

    Everyone out there, including Matt, check out John Michael Greer's book "Monsters". It has an extensive discussion about the phenomenon called "hagging". It's a very common form of psychic attack by an evil non-human entity, including a discussion of the phenomenon called "SUNDS", a phenomenon that claimed many lives of a Laotian tribe called the Hmong who came from the area of Laos and had their traditional protections disturbed upon immigrating to the US after the Vietnam War. (There is also a chapter on formerly-human vampires as such.) I just had an experience like these listed here just a few nights ago, when I had a disturbing nightmare of sleep paralysis and the sensation of a monster pulling on my arm!

    My mom used to have sleep paralysis over a decade ago. She would feel a force pressing down on her chest, and couldn’t breathe or move. Suddenly, the weight would be lifted, and she would be gasping for air. Then she would look out the window and see a tree branch unnaturally waving at her, just like a human hand.

    Ive had way too many to mention. But the last 2 : i thought i had woke up, but couldnt open my bedroom door, several tries later and unable to shake these false awakenings i slid down onto the floor with my back n head against the door, i then heard typical creepy kid giggling, a hand reached through the door and started stroking my hair, its breathing was raspy and frightning, as it stroked my hair harder it began to dig its nails in that quickly turned to long sharp talons. A few weeks later a had a lodger move in, she is tiny and has ptsd so her breathing is dry, her laugh is horrible, i discovered i dont really like her. Anyway, i was just dropping off when i felt someone get into bed next to me, shuffle over and hug me from the back, was breathing raspy, i thought it was my lodger drunk so i 3 times i flung her arm off and told her to get out, eventually i heard a tut and she got out of my bed. I went straight to her bedroom to have it out with her, after posting what she had done on fb coz i was crazy annoyed. She hadnt even come home...i was convinced she came back then left again very early n returned, she looked at me like i was crazy. Been having episodes both awake, half awake and false awakenings since i was a tiny child, some Sooo terrifying!

    It happened to me once, I can't remember a lot of it now but I was really terrified, I didn't know what to do so I recited "Our Father". That's what I've been doing whenever I get bad dreams, because most of the time I was conscious. lol

  • Barbara Rodriguez
    Barbara Rodriguez 27 days ago

    I have sleep paralysis a few times a year, I can tell when it's going to happen and it's usually when I'm trying to fall asleep, I see and hear things but the hallucinations are mostly auditory. One of the scariest times was when I was dreaming seeing myself in bed with a tall black thing at the end of the bed and as I saw it drag my body by my leg down toward the end of the bed it actually happened in real life and I woke up after this. My body felt numb and I was unable to move the entire time. I hear mostly demon voices. There are many accounts.

    I used to suffer from this. My first episode of this was utterly horrific i was 8 at the time. It was around 6am I had just awoken i was on my back for some reason and i couldn't move. I could barely move my eyes I then saw a dark cloaked figure with no face legs or arms floating towards my bed to my exact location. It faded to nonthingness about 3 inches away from my bed. After i still couldn't move for about 30 more minuets but my lower legs felt like burning gel. I wanted to scream so badly but i couldn't. It wasn't until about 9am that I had gathered enough courage to sit up and go to the living room. This happened to me at least 4 more times but i wasn't as scared because it was so predictable. It would walk up to me and vanish. The last time was the most memorable. I awoke at around 3am to see at least 5 of these cloaked apparitions standing outside my door frame about 8 feet away. They all were looking at me. I was in a cold sweat my bed was soaked from my cold sweat from the intense fear. It felt like pain. They all then walked away after about 5 minuets and i didn't sleep that night. I am now traumatized and my sleep schedule has been messed up because of this. I feel secure sleeping with my cat and watching netflix under the covers helps too. I always look over my shoulder and every corner. I am still so paranoid. 7 years later and it still haunts me.

The second I see figures or see family members go to my room but somehow I know is not them but I'm able to move like punch them or fly to ceiling unvoluntarily.

    I had sleep paralysis and saw what appeared to be 5-9 hooded figures circled around me. They had on black clokes and they had red eyes. I "woke up" and they were gone. I then heard a bang outside my house and looked out my window. I saw a cloked person with red eyes.

    I've had a lot of experiences with this, unfortunately. It's horrific. I can't even open my eyes during my cases, but I'm watching my dream-self desperately trying to pry their closed eyes open. The dreams are always different, but end in the same way each time. After I'm finally able to snap my eyes open in reality, I still can't move my body for about a minute or so and I still feel as if I'm in a twilight sleep, caught between the dream realm and the real world.
