i get this too. Like dreams , sleep paralysis is a state in which you are half conscious and half unconcious. when dealing with the unconcious ,the
first initial thought dictates all others and is never consciously considered. In your case the first initial thought is fear. but why can't you
overcome you're fear and experience an OBE? Because you're plunging into the unknown, and fear is always the emotion that ties with the
unknown.people fear ghosts, extra erresterials, occultism, and some fear self-exploration, because it is unknown, and even more fearful-cannot be
explained.If you accept the state of conciousnes and truly remember your personal values like (im guessing) peace,love,etc. you'll immeadiately find
safety within yourself.And remember, just because you dont have control of your body, dosn't mean you don't have control over your mind.
