Quote:Its the Old Hag syndrome all the way. It can and does feel real and that you are awake. But you aren't actually awake, the experience is so frightening because the victims, although paralyzed, seem to have full use of their senses. In fact, it is often accompanied by strange smells, the sound of approaching footsteps, apparitions of weird shadows or glowing eyes, and the oppressive weight on the chest, making breathing difficult if not impossible. All of the body's senses are telling the victims that something real and unusual is happening to them. Rather than ghosts or demons, however, there is a scientific explanation: "sleep paralysis"

To anyone who this happens to you swear your awake and you actually think it was real. This happened to me and I swore it was real for a few years until I discovered what it was and the cause. I studied it to find answers and by doing this actually discovered what caused mine. The only time I experienced it was when I slept in one back room, its a natural fear cage with extremely high EMF's The fuse box, and 220 lines running over head in that room. The EMF's altered the magnetic field in my brain and triggered this.

Hey Chris, I cant say for sure what happened to you but I can say with full confidence that not all these "occurances" have a reasonable "scientific" explanation. Perhaps there are some, or even many, cases of "Sleep Paralyisis" which are normal functions of the body/mind/sleep processes, but I do not believe that all cases are caused by that.

I had an experience myself and I was fully wide awake. My body was not "paralyzed" to protect me from moving in my sleep and what happened to me was not just a dream.

Rather than try to go into a lot of detail about my experience I will give a link to the story - http://www.trueghosttales.com/paranormal...xperience/

Perhaps Sleep Paralysis isn't the best name for this, as I said I wasn't asleep. I can understand someone who doesn't believe it happened the way I described it, that's fine, but I know what happened and what I went through and no one will ever convince me otherwise.

I read that experience in your newsletter CareTaker, and that had to have scared you. Without question, I believe it happened exactly the way you told it.

We all know the difference between a nightmare and something like this, upon waking from a nightmare we feel relieved, and forget the experience. This however screwed me up for years.

Its interesting, what you described runs inline with alien abduction experiences.

That's a subject I was just visiting on another thread. I don't know that much about aliens. I know not every story can be discounted. It seems that if it would happen, a time lapse would occur.

Or when your asleep, when a time lapse wouldn't be neccesary. Aliens (ie Greys Dracos whatever) scare me the most, because its the most believable.

One thing life has taught me is don't assume something exists look for evidence to prove it.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

Touche, UNR, touche. I just know I've seen some things that are very hard to believe, even for someone like me who is open to it. But I can't argue the point that things shouldn't be taken at face value.
