Had it happen one time. My eyes were fully open and I was on my back with my arms at my side. It felt like something was on top of me pressing down and making it hard to breathe. My eyes could move and look around the room but that was it. I just sat there and kept telling myself "move your arm, move your arm" and finally I was able to get a little movement and snapped out of it. It's definitely a freaky feeling.

I was gonna say.. the next thread about sleeping will be lucid dreams.

I don't think sleep paralysis is any type of illness. But I somewhat recall that it may be related to nightmares or stress. Your consciousness returns too quickly for your body to wake up.

I remember I had a lot of these when I was actually training and trying to lucid dream a long while ago. There're certain techniques to master this, but it requires patience. I have a few friends who can lucid dream basically every time they dream, which is several times a night, but they got to this point after 2-3 years of practice.

I did maybe 5-6 times, but the side effect of sleep paralysis got old on me.

I heard from doctors that hallucination is completely normal during sleep paralysis. I try to get out of it as soon as possible. Instead of trying to move larger parts of your body, I find wiggling your fingers and toes work the best and I can usually get out of it within a couple of minutes. But then if I fall back asleep right away, I again go into sleep paralysis, so I try to stay up about 5 minutes before going back to sleep.
Me too... which is why I don't think it's entirely scientific, but that's another topic.

Used to happen once a year (if that) . . .
Oh my. Do you know why so often now?

Once again, seems more than just science. I for one know that spirits are real based on nuermous experiences and this has to somehow coincide.

Science does explain the weird presence people feel during sleep paralysis. Like I have mentioned in my previous post, hallucination is completely normal during sleep paralysis. Most people just freak out that they cannot move while all of their senses are awake which ends up in hallucinating bad things.

Anyway, just wiggle your fingers and toes to get out of it. Works like a charm every time.
