Sleep paralysis IS natural though...?

is it? or is it the explanation given to us by scientists blaming it on lack of sleep because they dont have all the answers?

i know what i felt and what i've been through. feeling a weight on my back, eyes open couldnt move nor scream and when i asked jesus for help in my mind, the entity dissapeared. two times this happened, everytime more terrifying than the other. I agree with you,it's too much of a coincidence that calling on Jesus makes it stop every time. If it feels evil then tis because it is a bad prescence.

so no, i dont buy the scientists explanations sorry.

You are lucky you didn't have a utterly terrifying experience like I did with sleep paralysis.

I've had SP most of my life. My wife used to wake me up, saying that I was making "weird sounds again". It doesn't frighten me as much as it used to -- the hallucinatory dream state seems to fade more quickly and I think a lot of that is because of my efforts to stay in it and rationalize it, rather that just fighting it. I used to try to scream in the dream state, and I think that was what caused me to make the weird sounds.

I find that I have SP more often if I'm sleeping on my back. Also, I frequently can tell if it's going to be one of those nights, because I feel and hear a moving buzzing sensation as I'm about to fall asleep. When that happens, I often sit up and read for a little bit, which seems to break up the pattern.

Sometimes........... I can't help thinking that there is information within the experience, if only I were evolved enough to know how to process it.

Yep. I've had it several times usually during stressful periods - where I'm under a lot of emotional stress. Might want to see a doctor about it and get a referral to a sleep specialist. They do free testing for sleep disorders where I am.

I have had SP all my life. I have felt an evil presence and even seen his outline in the dark a few times. I have seen a psychologist and he say's that it is a form of narcolepsy. I could almost believe that, if not for the pure hate and evil that is always directed towards me when it happens.

Wouldn't really say I have a sleep disorder, lol. This is the first time I have sleep paralysis in almost 2 years, where I otherwise normally sleep 10-12 hours on a daily basis without ever waking up once.

Alright. Well atleast you seem to have it under control. But you seem to get it unsually often? Last time I had mine was nearly 2 years ago (early 2011). Before that was like 2-3 years prior to 2011, like 2008-9.

This is the third time I've had Sleep Paralysis and

(Long story cut)

One question: Do you drink / Had you drank coffee?

Caffeine is designed to cause paralysis in insects - that's a defense mechanism. It does cause paralysis in human beings too, but not as severe. Most notably example of this is usually the sleep paralysis.

I had them quite often when I still drank coffee. They were scary every single time - I was like sucked out of energy, so I didn't have the strength to wake myself up, without really straining myself to the extreme limits - and I tried to scream, sometimes being able to make small sounds, sometimes nothing audible, sometimes I don't know whether it succeeded or not. Usually it took me a relatively long time to reach 'freedom' and 'awakened' state, from 'not being able to move and sinking back to sleep'.

After I stopped drinking coffee over a year ago, there hasn't been one single sleep paralysis experience so far.

If you don't drink coffee (decaffeinated coffee is supposedly homeopathic in it's effect, so it might count), then forget I said anything.

If you do drink or had drank coffee before your sleep paralysis, well.. that's an easy thing to test, isn't it? Just leave the possible coffee and all caffeine products completely out of your diet - no soda pop either - and see, whether the sleep paralysis experiences stop.

In a Universe with zillions of all kinds of wonders and possibilities, of course something else might also be causing sleep paralysis. The only thing I know for sure is that caffeine causes them.

Quote from wikipedia:

"Caffeine is found in varying quantities in the seeds, leaves, and fruit of some plants, where it acts as a natural pesticide that paralyzes and kills certain insects feeding on the plants."

Great thread no doubt.
Sleeep paralysis is indeed scary...in fact you are dead whilst it is occurring.
But relax in the end we all wake up?

Please go into more detail. We're dead while it's occurring? I can personally testify to going OOB during one episode of SP so I'd like to hear a more detailed description of your quoted statement if you don't mind, thank you.

Still worthy of a trip to your doctor. Your body could be under some kind of stress that you don't know about. I have a rare blood disorder that causes muscle cramping and clotting - and this has been contributed to having seizures in the past and also connected to my sleep paralysis experiences.

I think that sleep paralysis is a bit of both - the medical world and the spiritual world. I think it's the spiritual world trying to tell us that something is wrong.

And no - in absolutely no way are people "dead" during sleep paralysis. I believe it relates to our medical conditions and neurology.
