I don't get the chill myself, and I don't remember any kind of sleep paralysis, but lately I've been kind of along the same lines. I've been
scared to death lately of aliens--that's why I found and joined this site, because this place seems to have the best heads I've seen on this stuff.
I've always had kinda strange sleep patterns, but for the longest time I'd rarely remember my dreams, and lately they've been more prolific.
Nothing too extreme, although about two nights ago I had the first nightmare I've had in probably years. And for about the past few weeks, since
before the pope died, I've had this really strong feeling that something big--not necessarily bad, not necessarily good--was going to happen. I have
no idea what it might be, but "contact" is about the only thing that seems like it could fit (I know this may be better apt for the BTS boards, and
that's where I was originally going to post it, but it seems to fit in this context.)
I feel I have a "healthy does" of skepticism, and I've been thinking that there's two possibilities in my case that could parallel yours:
1) Something is really going on--in your case, possibly you have been abducted, or maybe you are having some other type of ET-related experience,
maybe something psychic and you're mentally preparing for something. In my case, maybe for some reason I subconsciously know that something's going
2) The debunker in me is thinking that I am having some sort of psychological "misplacement" (?). I know that I personally am going through a
pretty stressful time, and my scenario may be my mind's way of trying to deal with it. I don't know what kind of things are going on in your life,
but maybe that's a possible cause. Of course, if one were to analyze any point in anyone's life, they could find a psychological cause to your
problem whether there really is one or not. That's one of the double edges of psychology: it's easy to rationalize anything if you think about it
hard enough for long enough.
What causes your chills? I mean, is there any sort of noticeable trigger at all? You say it happens quite frequently, so if there are any triggers
they may not seem related. Maybe they are though, if one were to look at them a little deeper. Also, I'd appreciate it if you could describe a
little better the other things you mentioned--what kind of sleep patterns do you mean are unusual? Does anything happen when you're frozen in bed?
Is there anything in particular that sets off your fear of aliens, like it only happens at night, or when you see Regis on TV or something (I have my
doubts about him sometimes...
)? Was there any point where you lost time? Please give more details. I'd also appreciate it if anyone else out
there could comment on my end as well--I'll start a new thread if it's out of place in this one (that and I really don't want to steal Azure's
spotlight either). Thanks, and I hope this helps in some way.
