i remember this happened to me when i was in 1st or second grade. my younger brother and i shared a room. i woke up in the middle of the night my teeth was clenched and i could only move my eyes. i had this feeling that someone else was in the room. watching me. almost as if this being was the one restricting me. til this day i cant tell u if there was a person in the room or not but i know i felt a presence. i remember snapping out of it and running to my parents room. my parents are very religious so they prayed for me. i felt a little better. then i went to sleep in their bed.
Anyway. I want to ask you people: am I the only one on this forum that when the few times I had an SP had no problems at all just "willing" me out of them in maximum 10-20 seconds? Sure, I have a strong will, but hey.. It was not that hard. I hear about people having them for hours, and I cant really grasp how that can be possible.
Also, am I the only one that never ever felt any "evil presence". Nothing at all. The only thing I've been afraid of when I had an SP is to open my eyes before my body is fully awake and I'm able to move, as my eyes is the first thing I gain control over during those 10 seconds ? I do not really know why I've always been afraid of opening my eyes, but I remember that I had a feeling that I could "see things" that I did not want to see if I did open them before gaining control of my whole body and thus being fully awake.

It allways feels evil , I feel scared, for some reason! Maybe cus we are not incontrol.
ut of curiosity, where have you heard people have them for hours? The maximum I have ever heard of is around 10 - 15 minutes and even that's very rare. And only induced through HSP. (HSP being the one where we hallucinate - The opposite of HSP, CSP lasts for minutes at the maximum)
Personally I think SP is what you make it, although that being so most don't realize they can make it anything. So for most once the feeling of paralysis sets in, they panic which in turn causes the emotions you feel to be negative rather than positive because let's face it, feeling paralyzed and helpless is never nice and you;re never going to feel good from it. So, if you didn't panic, and if you didn't let the negatives wash over you, it's likely you can have a neutral or even a positive experience through SP..IMO.
