I then try moving and my body is like stuck in place so i have to fight pretty hard to get up and when i do its like an outline of myself gets up and i see my real body laying there as if im dead. Once i get my bearings i start to move around the house but i usually have to piss which i dont this can last for a long or short time i have no control of it im working on that. At first i couldnt even get up id just lay there and wait until it was over. Now i wander around like its another life that i live and do things i never could in real life. In this state i can float i dont have to walk its great, i used to be a real bad alcoholic and sometimes wondered if i was dead for a few minutes and this is what happened but i have been sober for over six months and still have these episodes. If you have any info on how to induce of control this a bit better any info would be appreciated.
On the scientific side I found that it is simply a case of your consciouss brain waking up while your subconsciouss is still in control. i.e sleeping awake. The frightening effects are to shock your body into waking up.
Now being more enlightened than I was at that stage of my life I finally found the answer which I believe and which I have actully experienced.
Sleep Paralysis is simply the onset of an out of body experience(obe).
Now I dont know if you want to have one( well you actually dont have a choice since it happens to everyone whether we are consciouss of it or not.) but if you want to proceed out of your body all you have to do is stay calm and imagine yourself drifting out of your body. I know it is an extremely frightening experience and thus I know how ridiculous it sounds when I say you should stay calm. But dont be afraid, this is the most important advice, you can ignore everything else except this. There is nothing to fear but fear itself. As long as you stay calm you will be on your way to having one of the most delightfull and enlightening experiences.
Even though experienceing it most of my life I only found out about the last part a few weeks ago. Coincidentally right after reading a book about it (by Lobsang Rampa) and falling asleep I experienced the sleep paralysis. I made an extraordinary effort to just stay calm, and suddenly i was out of my body. I looked at my body seeping on the bed and was so excited I was immediately sucked back into my body.
