Hey my very first post, I am a long time lurker.
Anyways I had one experience of SP. If i recall correctly I was either hung over or sore from a work out (cant remember its been a few years.) Anyways i was laying down on my back and i got that infamous ringing in my ears and i started to hear my self breathe deep through my ears.
I remember being confused and afraid at first.... my head was tilted slightly towards my wall towards the stairs, and behind the stairs was my furnace room and I had this compelling reason something nasty and frightening was getting ready to come out and make its way towards me.
Now believe you/me I am not a fighter and the fights I have been in rarely ever went my way but my mind went into survival beast mode... I remember getting extremely angry and pissed and wanting to get up and confront what ever was over there. Words can not describe how hostile and irate I became it felt like if i was able to over come this paralysis I could end this and win.
Sure enough i broke free of the paralysis and stumbled out of my bed made sure i had good balance before walking into that furnace room.
Nothing there, hasn't happened since and i am glad. If i remember though I will pray instead and tell myself it isn't what it feels like
From what I have experienced, I can't differentiate between Sleep Paralysis and Lucid Dreaming. Most of my experience comes from around the time of waking up or rolling over during sleep. Its just like you can't move your body but your consciousness hangs around for a few seconds and then catches up soon. It could be terrifying as well as utterly confusing cuz there is no way to know what the hell happened.
Lucid dreaming is a strange experience. I can't honestly tell whether it was LD or OBEs. There is so much confusion going on for me. On many occasions, I knew I was suddenly awake but without opening my eyes. There were images that I could see and feel. Its like you are there experiencing everything. Suddenly, I feel a sense of something pulling me from that place and I just roll over. One important aspect is the heating up of the forehead, heat sensation through the ears & around the fingers and the intense vibrations happening within.
I could fly, raise up slowly all just by lying on bed..yeah! and it gets more intense once I start relaxing. Though I bet nothing frightening happens because I am still on bed, I can't continue doing so. The vibrations part indicates that its the beginning stage of an OBE. But as I said, I can't differentiate between all these. If you want more info on this, read Robert Monroe's books.edit on 28-2-2014 by radkrish because: (no reason given)edit on 28-2-2014 by radkrish because: (no reason given)
