Wow, that's crazy...I don't really have any helpful information to offer. I was just wondering what the deal was with everyone having the same or similar entities appear to them during these occasions? Either it is archetypal, or these beings actually exist in some other world or universe...What do you think Steve meant when he said when you get out of this? Like what was your initial impression? When you wake up, when you die, etc?
ETA: The breathing through the nose thing doesn't work for me, although I could get to the point to where I could think about my breathing while asleep, but even though I could breathe when I shouldn't have been able to, it never "clicked" that this meant I was dreaming, lol. It just never worked for me...edit on 6/24/12 by JiggyPotamus because: (no reason given)

I went to bed at about 11pm, I set my alarm at 4.15am for WBTB (Wake back to bed). I drank some apple juice because it helps me remember my dreams vivid. When I woke up at 4.15am, I remembered my dream quite well so I wrote it down in my dream journal. Then I went downstairs to drink some orange juice because it relaxes your body and keeps your brain active. Then I read some in my dream journal so I knew what all my dream signs were. I listened to binaural beats for 5-10 minutes. Then I went to bed. I was laying on my back, after a while some of my body parts started itching, so I ignored that. After a while my body started vibrating. So I knew this was the beginning of sleep paralysis, I was quite happy. I heard buzzing and humming noises aswell, but that's normal with sleep paralysis. But then it started.. I saw a grey alien, a demon entitity and a shadow person on the other side of my room. I knew these were just hypnagogic hallucinations. So I stayed positive. I called them: Steve the grey alien, Peter the demon and Bart the shadow person. I couldn't speak or I couldn't move. So I said to myself: Hey guys, are you here to help me become lucid? I tried to take control of the SP. But the grey alien replied: No, when you get out of this.. We will get you. That's the time when I became terrified. They started getting closer and closer. So that's when I closed my eyes, but I could still feel their presence. I was trying to relax because I really wanted to have a lucid dream. When I opened my eyes they were standing next to my bed. So I decided to break out from sleep paralysis. I changed my breathing pattern and I tried to move my fingers and toes, eventually I woke up. I feel so stupid because I couldn't keep on going. I never got this scared in my life before to be honest. ;o
Can you actually get used to this so you can become lucid after SP?
Because I have been trying for 8 weeks to have a lucid dream with MILD/DILD/DEILD but still didn't have my first one. And I really wanna have my first lucid dream ;p.
Sorry for the wall of text and my bad English .

Interesting story about your experience! How often do you get sleep paralysis? Do you often see entities in multiple form? As for me, I used to get SP up to 10x a night but now it's more like every few months or so. I have never seen multiple forms of entities at once. It usually is a dark entity, and I've never seen an alien, I've even tried to manifest one during my SP experience and it just didn't happen. The dark entity always plays tricks with me and growls at me, but I generally don't have entities around me when I have SP's that cause vibrations and electricity to go through my brain. This is usually accompanied with a gravitational force that grabs me by my hand and tries to lift me out of my body.... lately though it has started to lift me out by my feet for some reason.
Isn't it strange how some people have SP and SP experiences and others do not?? I wonder why this is so?? I read somewhere that only about 6% of the population has it. I guess its rare.
