Sleep paralysis and paranormal 'encounters' I believe to be related. "Spirits" that might be met around in houses, 'haunted' places, etc.
It is a really weird feeling where you can't move any body part, but you can think just like normal.

Sorry, I've never had sleep paralysis, but I've been reading a lot about astral projection and really wish that I had the control (or was just lucky enough to already have the problem) to cause it. When it happens you just need to feel aware of what is going on and relax, take deep breaths. It shall pass.

I experience sleep paralysis often. I am mentally aware but my body will not move. I feel the need for someone to pull me up. I am screaming for someone to help....but my mouth is not moving. I have tried to relax when this happens to me.....when I did I saw a bright light and that was all I remember. I am not sure how long I am actually in this state, sometimes it feels like eternity. I usually wake up disorientated with a overwhelming pressure to find answers.
I have had many strange experiences and encounters in my life, they started when I was very young and they have increased in frequency and clarity. I'm not sure myself what it is all about, but I continue to search.
