I think I sometimes get the sleep paralysis. If I'm really sleep deprived and fall asleep in a chair sometimes I wake up feeling like being subjected to high gravity (like Nasa's centrifuge). No demons or noise, just the turned-up gravity.

Now, a curiosity would know he is trying to induce it, unlike those people who get it not pre-knowing about it. I knew about it before my "someone cranking up the gravity" so I had the chance to re-fall asleep after the minute. I'm an insomniac so I'm ofted sleep deprived, one of the SP triggers. While napping in chairs, I sometimes also dream of flying airplanes or even a Mercury spacecraft! (and be somewhat lucid)

is it just me but can any one else do sleep paralysis at will? regardless of my sleep patterns, stress level, ect. Since a younge age, id slip myself in and out and would try to remember how i got out of it. its scary, u really do feel energies and entities moving around you. sometimes even right on top of u. Wierd.

Well i have got SP quiet a lot. i find its a mix of the DT's or night terrors after a session of alcohol at the wknd. I find that when i go drink fri sat and all day sunday, i have a hangover monday but tuesday night when i'm sleeping i get crazy realistic dreams and get SP sometimes, where you can see the outline of the room and yer not disturbed until you think..ah.. i'll have a piss but you can't move, talk or anythin, its happened so often now it doesn't bother me anymore but sometimes it can really freak me out when i dream that i have SP and there is someone in the room..so freaky.

deprive yourself of sleep. try to pull all nighters for 2 days in a row.
when u are very tired before falling asleep, chances are that you will
fall into paralysis right after closing your eyes for 5 minutes. and eat alot
of food right before falling asleep.

i know all about this, any questions? email me at : michaelbornot@gmail.com


sincerely,
sleep paralyzed kid

a reason someone would probably want to induce so is for lucid dreaming but thats only a small step a major reason that anyone would want to induce SP is for astral projection, thats the prize. the discomfort that comes with SP is a small price to pay that i gladly would

Dang, I figured with all the booze I drink on a weekly basis, I would be abducted on a regular bassis.
Oh wait wrong, forum.

I find my self "currently" having controllable dreams when I average 4 hours sleep per day for 7 to 12 days. I don't think it resembles SP, but who I am I to say.

If someone were to do the sleep depvrivation routine, and video tape the sleep (or lack there-of) and post it. That would be very sweet.

I once many years ago (~17 years ago), woke up from working 7 days a week 16 hour days, from a deep sleep. Stood up, and proceeded to strangle my GF at the time. I can remember squeezing her neck as hard as I could, shaking her, and yelling "WAKE UP, it's time to go". Luckily I came to, so no real harm was done. I don't really know many details, but it was scary as heck as my little mind recalls.

Scared the F out of me, and my GF. YMMV.

I can understand why someone would want to experience Sleep Paralysis (SP) The only problem is controlling your fear & not going into a panic attack whilst in RREM Sleep. This can also mean having to wait months or so for your next episode unless you have some way of preserving the capability of doing it most nights. The reason for people actually wanting to induce it is to fall into an Out of body experience (OOBE) This happens when your in SP, But learn to control your fear & just sit back & relax. You obvioustly have to be brave to do this.. Hallucinations can sometimes have a terrifying effect. But all it takes it for you to 'Roll out of your body'. This sounds stupid but is the gateway to Lucid Dreaming. Lucid dreaming is when you are aware whats going on. Controlling your dream. but control your consciousness, sometimes you'l get there & think.. Wow i'm dreaming then BAM your instantly awake & also be very careful on whats going on in your mind as the wrong thought can lead this experience into a full blown realistic nightmare. This ive experienced my self & isnt the nicest thing to go through. I get SP when i sleep straight on my back.. it can be terrifying, when it kicks in it feels like being buried alive underground in a small box. Well thats the impression i get when i cant move any art of my body & cant even scream, its happened a few times recently, only really occurs when life gets stressful, im out of work at the moment & got alot of stuff on my mind. Well the last time it happens i was with my girlfriend & i fell into SP state & was totally paralyzed. I tried shouting but all i could hear in my voice was this faint hissing sound, I had my arm round my girlfriend & was positioned on my back so i tried pinching her to aknowlege her to wake me up as this was before i learnt there was a possible gateway to Lucid Dreaming. Anyway, pinching my girlfriend wasnt working as i had not enough energy & she was also asleep. So i tried building my nerves up & twitching my way out of it.. Eventually i woke up & was ok since, im looking forward to my next encounter with SP


The difference between OOBE & Lucid Dreaming is Whilst in OOBE Your are not aware your dreaming, You think it's real. In a Lucid Dream you know you're in Fantasy Land.

My older brother had undiagnosed sleep apnea and had sleep paralysis on a regular basis.
I assume in his case, it's because his brain was starved of oxygen.
I'm not suggesting you put a pillow on your face or anything, but maybe lots of shallow breathing before you nod off?

BTW, my brother now has his oxygen kit and doesn't have so many episodes.

As for myself, I get sleep paralysis during nightmares and also as another poster mentioned when I sleep on my back, which could relate back to a lack of oxygen cause I snore when I lie on my back.

Happy paralysis!!

I starting having sleep paralysis in my early 20s. It was terrifying. I felt like I had died and was trapped in my body. Once I learned what it was, I had to train myself not to react with fear. To think, ok, my body's not awake yet, so I'll just go back to sleep. I would think of a relaxing place. It's always best not to fight it...that makes it worse!

As for the lucid dreaming....I've tried that too. It only half works. For me, it's as if I'm dreaming that I'm lucid dreaming. For example, let's say I want to lucid dream about walking on the beach. So, I relax and visualize the beach. But, then I dream about something totally random...like going to the mall. The mall dream is very vivid and seems lucid...but I'm not doing what "I" want to do. I'm not even doing what "I" want to do in the mall, but the dreaming me seems to be doing what she wants to do in the mall.

I know, that sounds weird. I'm just happy that I do not have the fear anymore, so a weird dream trip to the mall is fine with me.

I no longer suffer as much as I used to (late 30s now). I sleep with my head elevated, and if I stay up late, I try NOT to take a nap, so I go to bed very sleepy.

Sorry, but i can't imagine why an earth anyone would want to induce sleep paralysis. I get it a couple of times a year and certainly for me it is truly terrifying. It's never hurt me, thank goodness, but i dred to think what it is capable of and what it could do?

You know some episodes of sp i have had you couldn't make it up!
I just want to add that most of the sp i get, i have'nt had the luxury of even dozing off, let alone being asleep! Infact i have only just got into bed, when it starts on me. I have'nt had it bad since last july and even then i'm sure the thing was taking the piss out of me! I flew down my Doctors, absolutely hysterical. I know i was awake is all i can say. I get told all the time, it's a halucination! Utter rubbish! I think after all these years i should know the difference. My senses were on red alert that night, nothing would have got passed me in that way.
My Doctor tried to get me some councelling, but even the psyciatric dept didn't want to know at the local hospital, because as far as their concerned there is nothing wrong with me. I know that and it took alot of courage to go marching into my GP surgery and tell him everything. I admit i thought he could section me if he so chose to, but i was so distraught that day i was passed caring. He is so lovely tho and although a month later when i was summoned to see him, to tell me there is nothing he can do...he said 'come down to my surgery whenever you like'. That was the crux of it.
Thing is i've started seeing orbs in the last couple of years and i have only recently found out what they are. So someone must know what is going on?

I didn't know so many people didn't know about OBE and Astral Projection.

It's one of the only ways people get to do it.

They achieve sleep paralysis=Mind awake/body asleep, then they can leave the body(or experience something)

This is the basic routine everywhere for OBE.

Hi Pheonix,
I have had OOBE twice, thru sp. Not intentional as it just happened. The first time was after in the early days of sp i saw an entity standing beside my bed. The next night i woke up after feeling something prod me in my bellybutton. At that precise point i felt a breeze and my net curtain brush across my face. For no apparent reason i was hysterical with laughter!
The second time ( fairly recent ) I was in sp and had refused to keep my eyes open. In a nanno second i was looking down from the ceiling watching what i can only describe as an operation on my brain. There was lazer light shining also from my cupboard into my mouth. All the time my teeth were chattering and my head was jolting backwards and forwards. Never ever have i seen anything like it in my life. SP never ceases to amaze me and scare the living daylights out of me! I have tried to do the oob thing, but without success. This was only to try and make sense of it all, but nothing happens. Stephen King might well want to read all this! Suffice to say this is true, not made up, i don't need the publicity or want it. I am just a mere mortal that would like some help. You know the weird thing is i use to think could it get me if i was in prison or if i had 50 people with me in the room? No one can ever understand how alone and isolated you are when sp gets you, because no matter what you feel so alone. I do anyway.
There is so much could say, but it would take me all day... and night!

Sleep paralysis is not the same as lucid dreaming. It is an aweful feeling and I cannot imagine why anyone would want to put themselves in that situation willingly. very odd thread.

I had a dream once that someone was breaking into my house. But I was half awake. I opened my Eyes but saw darkness. I tried to move but my body was like it was asleep still. And Shear panic set in and the adrenaline started pumping. This whole thing took place in a matter of seconds. After the adrenal rush I was up and moving fine but everything was cloudy. I felt displaced and almost in fear for my life.

If i ever have this feeling again it will be too soon. I don’t know why anyone would want to feel this.

Apparently my psychic tells me that some people take a long time to form their Astral Bodies, such as myself, and experience this if it goes into their early 20's. That is why I asked you how old you are.

My state used to have a entity hovering over me, and now I think it was my higher self I saw. The best analogy is the shroud of turin in black and white is what the entity looked like.

If you want to experiment with this, get the gateway experience of the Monroe Institute, body asleep, mind awake. Might be on torrent.
