Almost every instance of sleep paralysis is biological. I will not hazard a numerical value for how small a number of paranormal-induced sleep
paralysis incidents, but it would most likely be less than a percent.
It might be a frightening experience, but it is a natural one. The commonest explanation for it that I have come across is this: when you sleep, your
brain basically shuts down voluntary movement, possibly so that you do not injure yourself while dreaming, though the exact purpose of this process
has not been determined. Normally, this happens as you become unconscious for sleep, and reverses as you regain consciousness while waking.
Occasionally, you awaken faster than you regain control over your body, and because you're still technically asleep, you can have some pretty wild
The demonic is very real, but also very rare. If you cannot discern whether or not your instance of sleep paralysis are paranormal in nature, then you
are probably not capable of doing anything that would piss off a demon or an occultist to the point of having the hurt put on you. No offense. It
isn't a crime to have a normal, paranormal-free life. You should not go looking for this kind of thing.
