Glad to see you back, Assassin351. You stamped out symbolism before & I was glad to see it put to bed. Now you've ruled out background music, & again I agree with you, cos the premise of this argument would have those with my musical tastes to be suffering bi-polar disorder or the like.
As you chose to post in this forum rather than the Medical one, I'm assuming that you feel your symptoms may be paranormal in origin. Gazrok has put forward another idea that could be applicable, and I confess I know nothing about astral projection myself.
Is there a chance that this could be an explanation, Assassin351?

The sleep paralysis thing can manifest in different ways. Also, there are different types of sleep disorders that can pop up anywhere in life. Mine started after a traumatic experience at 21.
When you are sleeping you are not conscious and NOT aware of what your mind is doing....your mind IS doing something but we are usually not knowing of it at the time...There are varying stages of sleep and sometimes, as you are waking up, you become aware of things you normally dont notice--This can be a terrible experience seeming very unnatural.--These incidents have people convinced they have been abducted by aliens and raped by demons. A stay at a sleep disorder clinic have put some of these "victims" minds to rest.
My disorder had me feeling as if I was having a seizure...from buzzing and crackling sounds to violent vibrations....The vibrations were a "sensation" from within and not true tremors..the sounds we manifested, not real. An intense feeling of "electricity".--A feeling of melovence at times, not every episode. The were all slightly different. I thought I was nuts. This was initiated by sleep depravation, and exhaustion due to the loss of a loved one. It scared me to the point of forgetting how to breathe. I was so frightened. I couldnt start my breath back up
So, sometimes it is not physical or spiritual..It is mental, but still not so bad. I have episodes still after my traumatic experience 10 years ago, but they dont scare me like they did. I understand the chemistry of the brain is very complicated, and sometimes I just use that as my "answer" to these weird experiences.
