I had sleep paralysis almost every day for four months when I was younger, and still have one from time to time. It was caused by incredible stress
and tired body. The more experiences I had, the harder it was for me to go to sleep and the more tired I became the more experiences I had and this
went on for a long time. I was thinking about suicide at one point. So you might say I am a veteran in this case.
And it is normal for people that had this experience once or twice to be confused, but it is hard for me to believe that people who claim here that
had it many times still believe that it is something else, than just psychological problem.
The incredible panic and fear is natural. I had times, when I was sure, that there is something still behind my bed when I got out of paralysis. I
could feel it's presence even after waking up and as a 19 year old grown man I cried in panic. I thought there were some patterns that couldn't be
coincidence at first.
For example, there were similarities in hallucinations. I saw more than once, two blue heads talking in strange language, shouting angry at me and at
themselves. They looked human, but didn't felt human at all. And that language was so different it is even hard to explain. Also, lots and lots of
white figures at my feet, behind my bed, behind the window. Most of the time the hallucinations were partial, meaning that I saw actuall room, but
things started appearing inside it that shouldn't. But sometimes, even the room changed and I was sure I was in my second house before I woke up. Also
sometimes I had visions in daylight, while there was still dark in reality. Sun played interesting role. Sun always had face. For some time I was sure
I am seing different dimention.
But... the more this happened to me, the more randomness I saw. It is easy to jump into bad conclusion, when something happens to you lets say 5 times
in your lifetime and you see similarities. But when it happens like in my case... I just saw the randomness. And the more I studied it on my own, the
more I realized that the similarities were just my greatest fears comming out. In the end it was all "mine", from my head. There was nothing that I
coudn't imagine by myself even though it was scaring me to death. I would imagine, that visiting other dimensions, or seeing something out of this
world, I would encounter shapes I can't imagine.
Also when it comes to OBE. When I read about it, I really don't see anything in common with sleep paralysis. Those are two different things, unless
your experiences with paralysis are different tha mine.
I discovered that I got paralysis the more tired I was. For example, after riding in a car for whole day it was 100% chance. Or when I slept to little
last night. It wouldn't make any sense if a man experienced something out of this world because he is tired. It would make more sense, that he was
seeing things, because he is tired. How being tired would make you do something special, just isn't logical in my opinion. You are sick because you
are tired, that makes sense.
Also, what is really important and what made me jump into my conclusions, was the way I got healed out of it. I actually seeked help, instead of
hiding it from the world and getting more crazy theories by myself that would just get me deeper in my ignorance, like some people I see here.
And I found out that the incredible panic sensation is not a must in this kind of sickeness. Since it is all in my head it can be fought. So after
four months I finally learned to eliminate the fear and I began to see positive hallucinations. After that I basically got healed.
All I can say to people that have this problem. The most important thing is to realize you have it while you are in it. And when you do, no matter
what happens, you shouldn't struggle to move! It is all in your head, so you must use that head to make it stop. If you'll try to eliminate
hallucinations, you will become more closer to reality and your body will wake up.And when you'll realise you can control it, you will know that it
was YOU all along.
Thought I'd share my story, maybe it will help some people. Don't care if someone believes me or not. I am happy this is over and I hope no one will
ever have my experiences.
