I have had it many times in my life, and I've been terrified every time. A typical episode lasts about 5-10 seconds with me sending superman-sized
signals to my limbs begging them to move. I start reconnecting to my body in the toes and then start kicking myself awake. There has always been the
perceived presence of evil somewhere in the room.
A few years ago, I started reading books about OBEs and how they are connected to SP. More than one author claimed that they are not scary if you
relax and take a moment to asses the situation. Nothing scary is happening, you're just trapped between sleep and wake. There is a natural mental
function that stops your limbs from moving while asleep. It's a great evolutionary survival tool, because it keeps us all from walking over cliffs in
Anyway, the last time it happened I was ready. I wanted to use it a launchpad for an OBE. That didn't work, because my theta brain convinced me that
this was a legitimate abduction attempt! I really believed the greys had come to get me and I needed to struggle for my ability to move. How absurd,
there was no REALITY FILTER present. Just like in dreams, the most ridiculous improbable events pass as everyday occurrences, without a second
The key is too stay lucid. Remember that in dreams, the slightest fear can snowball into a nightmare because anything you imagine can manifest
immediately. Dreaming awake is more common than people think, it's called a HALLUCINATION
How many people would believe in lucid dreams? Probably the majority of people. Now, how many people would believe in dreaming while awake? Probably
not as many, but they are both equally possible. I have auditory hallucinations all the time of people talking gibberish in the back of my
subconscious mind. It's probably just rogue theta waves, not evil spirits.
So to sum up this rambling post: Don't be afraid of SP, I promise you there is a logical explanation for it and the feeling it gives you of being in a
horror movie. Next time, try to roll with it.
Edit to add (and this important) that before falling asleep to the abduction nightmare I watched 2 solid hours of UFO shows on Netflix and fell asleep
with my back to the room. I rarely watch that stuff, but it holds my attention.
