Sleep Paralysis
    #2459361 - 03/22/04 03:41 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

A few months ago I had my first sleep paralysis experience. I though tit was trippy, interesting etc. Last nite it happened again...I'm 21 and this has never happened to me before. So I'm starting to worry. Both times it was rather brief. Last nite, I felt like I was awake, but I could not move my body. My body then began to move on its own, just turning to the side, without me telling it to. Then I regained control of my body and became more fully conscious, realizing that I was previously in a wierd state of half consciousness half sleeping....qutite wierd...don't really iknow if my eyes were really open when it happened, although it kindof seems like they might have been.

I am visiting home for the first time in a couple months...the last time it happened was a couple months ago, when I was also at home. It hasn't happened at school, my more permanent residence. Could this be because I have stopped smoking weed while I'm here? Change of environment?

I have done shrooms about 8 times in the last year, and smoke pot 2-3 times per week. Very healthy otherwise. Does anyone have any info about this?

Thanks.

Oh I also smoke cigarettes, a couple a day, I've been cutting back used to be more, but I haven't been able to smoke the last few days since I am at home. I haven't noticed more than occassional minor cravings that I have no problem repressing. Just wanted to add this too, in case it could be a factor, as the not smoking thing was also true the last time this happened.

hey man! im 23 years old and i had my first sleep paralysis experience last night... i've been doing some research right now and its pretty weird... most of the experiences im reading are from people in the beginning of their 20's... and these expiriences happen mostly under situations of psychological stress.. in my case it's because im moving out of my mom's and im (to be honest) scared shitless... i don't even know if i can afford it yet, but the place i found is just too good to not move out... what i find extremely interesting is that in your case this phenomenom is also associated with your family (you have only experienced it when you are back home)... doenst necesarrilly have to mean something, but who knows... ill do some more research and if i find out ill let you know...

take care & good luck
all the light

ps: i honestly dont think it has something to do with the use of drugs...

Alrite, cool man....I dunno maybe it is being at home...I get stressed out here, having to act the right way around my family, tough to please them and I hate fighting.

Anyway I am gonna be back at school wednesday...if it doesn't happen anymore I'll just conclude it is the stress of being at home.

Do you mind if I ask what your sleep paralysis experience was like last night?

sure man... well as i told you im pretty stressed out these days... even though im on vacation from work im gonna have to use the vacation to move out and haul my stuff over to my new place... so right before falling asleep i was thinking about all the stuff i have to do the following weeks... and then i was gone... and the dreams i had were really scary... i remember dreaming that i was in my car with my girlfriend and we were either driving home or away from home but there was something inherently wrong with the world... anyways it was a really scary feeling of wrongness throughout the whole dream and this led me to "wake up"... and then i basically lay there conscious but unable to move at all... i felt this buzz in my whole body and obviously i was scared as fuck... i also had the feeling that a certain presence was in the room but i really can't recall seeing it and i can't tell if it was evil or not... and then after about 2 minutes i just snapped out of it and was able to move again...

now most people find an explanation to this phenomenom in the fact that our body paralyzes automatically during sleep so that we wont kick/shout/react to the stuff happening in our dreams... and sleep paralysis happens when the mind awakens, but our body is still in sleep mode...

there is also the spiritual side to it (and this is the one i am inclined to)... when we sleep our soul basically leaves the body... and sleep paralysis happens when we become conscious during that process... the ideal would be to take advantage of the situation and start an astral journey, but it is easier said than done...

I've been getting that every so often, but everything is in really slow motion while paralyzed and I can still arise, sort of - but in really really really slow motion. However, every single time I get it - I feel as though there is another person (entity) there. The first time I had it, there was a really really tall "thing" standing in my doorway and I couldn't see its face; I wasn't scared, but it was still disorienting.

Don't worry about it; I am a pretty stress-free person and I don't worry compulsively - I think it starts when you subconsiously try and wake up inside your dreams (lucid dreaming), like I have been trying to do. Furthermore, some people beleive that sleep paralysis is actually caused by aliens invading your dreams.

Sounds very similar to my experience indigo. I didn't have the "entity" but did have a wierd body buzz, like I knew my body was there but I just couldnt' move it. The wierdest thing was when my body turned...like it does in normal sleep...as I felt it turning, but had no control of its movement. And as it turned, I fully awoke.

And ceephax, it makes sense as I had my first successful lucid dream just a few weeks ago...I have been trying to do that.

Anyway I won't worry, if it happens again I'll do my best to enjoy it, maybe learn something or experience something new. :smile:

dont trip about it Jong, its a normal thing that can happen.

When you are asleep, certain portions of your brain are inhibited, especially ones having to do with movement. Sometimes when you wake up, that inhibition can lag on letting go, thus the paralysis.

It can be related to sleep apnea i think, so maybe check that out.
