I always get chills down my spine when I talk about sleep paralysis experiences but here goes... Brrrrrr...
I know science claims to understand the mechanism of sleep paralysis, but the one thing that science doesn't explain is why are the feelings
associated with sleep paralysis so extremely negative?
When I experience sleep paralysis, the feelings are of extreme rage or extreme terror.
Even when I'm having a nice dream and awake, during the SP experience it instantly turns to outright horror or rage.
As an example, there was one time where I awoke, couldn't move but could see a figure at the end of the bed, it wasn't looking at me but I was
overwhelmed by anger. I'm not talking standard anger, it was almost as though it was not part of me, I can't begin to explain this rage, had I been
able to move I would have tried to rip this thing to pieces, the feeling was completely irrational, nothing would have stopped me.
How does science explain this? It was almost as though some part of me knew this thing that was near me during SP was evil and I had to do everything
in my power to get rid of it.
The above experience came after a few times of me experiencing SP, it rarely happens now.
One of the last times it happened I was dreaming there was a gap in my bed, I rolled down into it and when I awoke, 'something' was instantly there
biting at my neck and making heavy hissing noises. As soon as the anger in me rose, I regained movement and woke up.
This anger or rage has been my way of dealing with SP, and as soon as I feel it coming, whatever presence is there goes away.
Surely if this was entirely explained by science, then whatever chemical it is that keeps us from moving during SP would last a similar amount of time
each time? During my first ever SP episode, it lasted for about a minute. I was terrified. If it happens now I fall into this rage and regain
movement almost instantly.
Anyone else share this experience of extreme rage, how can it be explained?
