so i was falling asleep laying on my back it was very dark in my room. i fell asleep real fast and started dreaming almost immediately.
the first thing i remember is a feeling of being held down, and laying side ways off the bed fighting with someone who was choking me. then i couldn't fight or move.i know about sleep paralysis and was able to consciously think about it in my dream.
at this time the dream became lucid and i willed my body to move. at this point i woke up and sat up and was side ways in the bed. i got up and fumbled to the light and turned it on. standing there i was thinking how crazy the dream was and what was the entity i was fighting with.
i looked around my room the light was on i looked down the hall and it started warping like a spiral and the whole room changed. at this moment i woke up for the second time, this time really awake laying on my back in pitch dark. i got up again for the second time fumbled for the light and really had to make sure i was awake i looked at the clock and barely 45 min went by.
this was the craziest dream ive ever had. very vivid and scary, just wanted to share and see what everybody thought about it.

You were right about sleep paralysis. And it is utterly frightening when you don't know what's happening...
You had what some call "unvoluntary astral projection" or "OBE" out of body experience.
It is quite freaky when it happens without "wanting it". And rare.
If you want to know more about it you can read Journeys Out of the Body by robert Monroe.

inception..

but GOOD ON YOU (in the dream) for turning the light on!

that's the ONLY way I can snap out of it.

I don't experience exactly what you did. but mostly that my body is LEAD and I can't move it, and I just FEEL terrified, and I'm not even sure why. like I had a TERRIFYING dream, but I can't remember it.
and I'll go in and out of that until I can turn on the light. sometimes it takes a while because my eyes just get too heavy too fast and I can barely move.

Sounds awesome.. to me, the dream within a dream.
I'm sure it's freaky.. the feeling of lead and being terrified, sounds... pretty traumatic, sorry to hear that.

Sometimes I feel my eyes are open , but I can't wake up. I used to scare , but I used to it. I wait until the time I can wake up.

* Once I woke up two times before I could wake up.

But it is some part of sleeping process.

We travel in our dreams , we forget our clues and we find a new ones.

those are always crazy... lol. I used to have a recurring dream maybe twice a year for a few years where I would be standing in the bathroom fiddling with my teeth and my teeth became loose and started falling into the sink. There was lots of blood and I remember the teeth sounding like dice bouncing around in the sink. I'd wake up.. freaking out. I'd get out of bed and go to the bathroom, look in the mirror and start fiddling with my teeth. The first tooth would be slightly loose and I'd start to panic thinking that it was real and that my teeth were really falling out. Five minutes later, the sink would be full of blood and teeth and I'd wake up sweating and freaked out.

Sometimes I'd "wake-up" 3 or 4 times and deal with the anxiety each and every time. Absolutely hated it. Thankfully it's been at least 6 years since I've had that dream. Ungh.

would there be a connection with the thing i was fighting with. i really couldn't see it but it was dark with undefined lines and it was evil the feeling was hopelessness that's all i can describe about it??
and would ast.pro.be a parallel reality? would that explain the awake consciousness i had.could i have actually been awake but in a different reality? it seems like i wasn't asleep long enough to get to that stage of sleep to dream that lucid.i remember when i turned the light on the first time i saw my dog on the bed looking at me the detail and clarity of this part of the dream was amazingly real but it seemed to have a hollow feel like void of something.very strange.thanks for the replies and it really is amazing what our brains are capable of.what is really reality you know.lol

The dream within a dream is the "involuntary astral projection" or "OBE"?

I've had a few of those dreams within dreams before, though they are rare and wow so they freak me out lol.

But if it is as you say it is, then next time I have done I need to play around with it. Though not sure if that would be wise...hmm...well I'll just chalk it up as a scientific experiment then lol.
