From what I remember, I've had sleep paralysis happen to me twice.
The first time, I was very confused, and extremely freaked out that I could not move, and although I do not recall seeing anything, there was a very
distinct 'presence' in the room - the kind of feeling you get when someone is standing behind you. Eventually I closed my eyes and drifted back to
The second time however, the experience was quite different, I was about 10 or 11 a the time, I was 'jolted' out of sleep, it was almost as if I was
'sucked' out of sleep state (with a distinct pulling sensation), and I laid there in bed, completely unable to move, and then the lights started
coming through my bedroom window - brilliant colors of red, green, orange, and purple. Now mind you, I lived in a high-rise apartment building, on the
24th floor, so there was no way that it was someones headlights, or a plane, or anything logically conceivable that could put off that much light at
that altitude. I tried to scream, I fought with everything I could to wake myself up, but to no avail - I laid there in terror, not knowing what was
about to happen. For what seemed like an eternity of waiting, nothing happened, eventually I snapped out of it, and was able to move my limbs and
speak again. Quickly I rushed into my parents bedroom, and told them of what happened, only to be ridiculed as me having a nightmare.
I am now 28, and haven't had an episode of SP since. These days I try to induce SP as a precursor to an OBE / lucid dream, and althought I can lucid
dream pretty frequently, I have only managed to have an OBE once - completely by accident, but thats a topic on its own!
