Hi OP, I am very experienced with anything to do with dreams and beyond. Will try to answer all your questions.
I just replied to similar post, so I copy pasted it here.
Night of sleep is not one straight line, there are certain patterns and sleep phases through which we pass every time we go to sleep. There are
certain chemicals produced by our brain in different phases of sleep. One of those chemicals paralyze us when we sleep, when we wake up there is
another chemical that makes us able to move again. And many more.
Sleep paralyses happens when something goes wrong in this pattern of sleep phases, we partially wake up and we cannot move. We all do fear the
unknown, we want to move and we cannot move, of course when it first happens to you and you do not understand the nature of it, you are scared. The
more you are trying to move, the scarier it gets. Your subconscious mind comes in play here, you biggest fear comes to life. You still did not wake
up completely, so you are seeing fragments of your dreams in your waking life. Intention controls our dreams, for beginners it is hard to generate
that pure intention needed for perfect dream control. Fear is a very strong tool to generate that intention. This is the reason why fear summons
something creepy that easy and fast.
In short it is Paralyze + Hypnagogic Hallucination + Fear of Paralyze and later on + Fear of creepy things your scared imagination realized for
And one more thing, all those creepy stories you read about SP also come into play and add more fear and more scary expectations, thus, generating
It takes time to get used to it, when you understand the process, you know that nothing is wrong, everything is fine. You also do understand that you
are able to continue dreaming while you are awake. Do same what you would do in any lucid dream, make something nice. If your dream control is weak
and you are not scared of your SP, you will most probably see nothing. If you are not scared of your SP and you have good dream control, you will be
able to do anything you want, its pretty cool to see a mixture of waking life and dream objects.
You wont be having SP's forever, as far as I know, your brain is getting used to what you are doing and slowly working out a process that wont cause
any errors/mistakes that might lead to a SP.
If you want to get rid of scary events, try to laugh and smile. It works the opposite of fear and will probably make it better for you. But most
important, remember the process, its something normal, don't expect nightmares and all will be fine.
