I experience predormital sleep paralysis up to 4 nights a week & multiple times on those nights (finally being able to move - just to go through it all over again when going back to sleep). I've been dealing with it for a number of years at this point and had many interesting and terrifying experiences. It would appear it's an inherited condition in my case, however the frequency at which it affects me seems to be quite high.

I could ramble on for pages about all the crazy things that I experience in these states, but I'm more interested in you, ATS members, who also have this condition and the frequency at which this happens to you and any ideas on causes,treatments, etc..

Wow, you mean you're still alive??

In that case, one thing I have discovered is that sleeping on your back will more frequently trigger sleep paralysis.

Start sleeping on your side, slightly curled up as in fetal position if you want to reduce the episodes.

The lengthening of the spine is what induces it. It is actually a yogic posture and this is part of why it happens at all.

I'll stop it here because I'm mad at you for disappearing all these years...but am glad to see you again my old friend

NB!! ^_^


I experience it regardless of sleeping position sadly, but what you say is true for most people.

Then I would say...

Your spirit guides likely have a message or some info for you. This is one way in which they communicate..inducing the vibrational state.

I would surrender to it. Don't be afraid, try to stay calm. Invite them to talk with you. Let them know you're listening and ready to hear.

Good luck, and don't be a stranger.

I've had SP since I was a kid I used to get it couple times a week too.. It happened in phases through out my life. Sometimes I would get it everyday for months and sometimes couple months with nothing.

I haven't had an episode in a few years now (I'm 30). Not sure what attributed to that but it just slowly went away..

Aside from one scary episode, and I've had hundreds++ most of the time its the same thing, wake up can't move can barely breathe but I always will my way out of it and go back to sleep

I've had a lot of practice stuck in this state, even mastered the ability to make verbal noise to request assistance in some cases and how to hasten the wake up stage somewhat with mixed results.

It's awesome to see you old friend

I hope this discussion doesn't spark them up for you again.

So only one scary episode? That's great!

I'd guess around 30% of mine are scary/unnerving.

Wow that would be crazy to have it that often. I've probably had sleep paralysis around 5 or 6 times in my life, but what's weird is that they all happened in the same house.

I've read everything I could find on it and I know the medical explanations (which aren't really explanations at all) and I still believe there's more to it.

The scariest experience I had was when a reptilian type thing was standing over me, I wake up, and its standing there with its hand on my left arm and I can't move. I'm laying there immobilized and its looking me over, and I'm trying to move with every ounce of strength, and all of a sudden my right arm came loose, I take a swing at it, and it jumps back surprised and then disappears.

I knock out, and wake up what I guess is right after, and there's three long marks on my arm where it was holding me. So that time actually left physical evidence.

That was the only time I've had sleep paralysis that there was some type of entity involved. The others involved a weird buzzing feeling and then I'd leave my body and walk around. Not sure if I was astral projecting or if it was just a really strong lucid dream.

Excessive drinking and stress triggers mine.

I always get crazy auditory and visual hallucinations during a full blown episode.

They suck hardcore.

Years ago I used to have really vivid dreams where I do telekinesis. It seemed so real I swear I can do it when I wake up. But nothing would ever happen. But now that I'm older I just have insomnia all the time since 9/11. I just can't sleep anymore.

I agree with the belief there is more to it. Seems to be a feeling of 'in between' realities in my experience.

Read Robert Monroe's Journies out of the Body if you are interested in taking the next step.

It's hard for me to believe we can create that level of reality just by falling asleep the wrong way. I remember right now exactly what that things face looks like, and its nothing I had ever seen before or since anywhere.

Maybe its "maintenance" being done on us by the people who run this simulation?

lol I honestly had this thought as well. Guess I've been reading too many Mandela Effect posts... OR.. just enough.

Why is it hard to believe??

Just imagine for a minute if there were a time in human lineage where this was commonplace.

The wisdom of the past has been lost, but some of us can gleam our spiritual heritage.

Now you know the meaning of my username

Firstly, I am sure that a lot of democrats are experiencing this phenomenon RIGHT NOW!

Secondly, I experienced that a couple times before and it is no fun. Usually happens when I am really burnt out from work or not getting sufficient sleep. Sometimes it happens when my neck is pinched into my pillow.

Maybe have a chiropractor examine your neck or back skeletal structure? Either that or change to a better mattress and pillow. I got a new mattress after my last episode and no problems since. I just try to get enough sleep and relaxation in between hard work periods.
