umm.. i have no idea what kind of experiences you're having, but i've had a lot of sleep paralysis. and it more-so doesn't have much to do with the
dream, but how you're feeling.
I am in physical pain, usually in my entire body. Completely lucid, and paralyzed, unable to move, it can feel difficult to breathe, but for me, I
think it mostly has to do with blood pressure. Like, the pain in my body has something to do with blood pressure, I feel it surging through my body.
The most annoying thing about it is that you cannot wake up, you cannot move, and it hurts really bad. It can be extremely terrifying, but it's the
kind of fear that you feel like you actually may die like this, and there is no escape. I've experienced sleep paralysis for hours at a time. It
usually doesn't get so frightening I feel like I'm on the brink of death, but it's always the same. Can't move, can't wake up, hurts really bad.
From what your describing it reminds me of how the artists depicted it centuries ago. I don't think the actual dream plays a significant role in
