This is a real annoyence that I can only get it once every four months and I want to get it more often...
WHY? I HATE when I get it. It's awful and it's frightening.

You can induce SP through meditation quite easily. It's only scarey if you are not aware of what is really happening( in reality, there is nothing wrong...you are simply sleeping). If SP freaks you out, so would any type of hallucinogen. You do realize the vivid images during SP are caused by a natural hallucinogen right? Look into '___'. If self imposed hallucinations scare you, I could understand why you don't like it. For some, like me, its a free high. Your mind stays awake, while your brain releases '___'(to induce the dream state). What is so aweful about dreaming awake?
