Sleep paralysis doesn't strictly mean imminent ET contact - at least not in the way you might imagine. It's understandable that you'd get scared at
this point and back away from it - but it's also a real shame. Sleep paralysis is the gateway to all sorts of amazing things. People who seek to have
out of body experiences - "astral projection" - avidly seek sleep paralysis as the precursor to the experience of consciously exiting the body, an
adventure most have to wait until an N.D.E. or death itself, to go through. I've done this hundreds of times and now always greet sleep paralysis as
a golden opportunity, although it can still be very intimidating. But is worth it. More than I can express.
It's strange that merely through fearful interpretation and expectation (as in "Paralysis! I'm being abducted!" or "It's Demons! I'm being
Possessed!" or "I'm dying!") one person can back away from an experience that another person seeks like treasure. It's all in the perspective.
I've been on forums dedicated to groups complaining about recurring sleep paralysis and speaking as if they were victims of some terrible illness, as
they all sympathized with each other and the 'horrors' they go though, and I'm always amazed at their attitude. I work really hard to reach and
enjoy what they avoid and complain about. LOL They are terrorized by their own fear
and nothing else. The experience of of sleep paralysis
itself is not that bad. Those who learn to embrace it learn to actually enjoy it - and what comes after it. It's our reaction
to it that
determines if we experience trauma or not, and we can control our reactions. Trying to explain this to such people is difficult however, as they can
often be attached to their imagined identity as victims of an 'illness' deserving of sympathy. The truth is, their own systems naturally take them -
consciously - to a door we all go through unconsciously every time we sleep and rather than cooperate and go though it to the adventure on the other
side, they fight it in terror and so never go through, like children freaking out like they are being murdered when getting an anaesthetic LOL.
Understandable, because of ignorance of the process but ultimately, rather silly and unecessary.
I suggest you go back and pick up where you left off, this time having mustered the courage to continue with the exploration you started out on.
You were right on the threshold
. But it's not the threshold merely to 'ET encounters' and it would be big a mistake to interpret it narrowly
in that way, as if paralysis = 'abduction'. I've had hundreds of sleep paralysis episodes and never been 'abducted', but I have gone on to have
amazing experiences of all sorts, most not 'ET' related at all. It's the threshold to a whole range of 'metaphysical' adventures and what you
experience will be determined by your will, so don't let your interpretations and expectations get the better of you. It will likely only involve
abduction scenarios if you expect it to
, but you could just as easily have positive 'ET' encounters, if that's what you want, if you control
Unity's suggestions are excellent and apply here too. If you spend some time questioning and releasing your expectations and fears and getting into a
positive mindset and a feeling of happy confidence(or at the very least open-mindedness), that can allow the kind of 'surrender' necessary, then
your next sleep paralysis episode - if you go with it - may be the most powerful, exciting and transformative experience you've ever had. I kid you
