My First Sleep Paralysis
#41
I missed this post, sorry scary. I didn't feel heaviness or a fog, i just felt extremely tired which lasted all day. I must admit i have been out a fair bit over the w/end and had too much to drink (please delete stupid post i put about my setee when half cut Rolleyes in staff) so that i can go to sleep before 4am. But yesterday and today i just don't feel afraid anymore, I did a lovely prayer last night and it just made me feel so calm. I had a long talk to God, (well, long for me).

It's great how prayers can help you calm down. If i had another SP, i would handle it so differently, i've decided i will not fight it, just lay there and pray, if that is possible.

How did you feel for the rest of the day after this happened? Forgive me if you answered it, I'm not seeing where you did. But I was wondering, as it seems most cases I've heard of where it was the classic natural phenomenon, there was very little aftereffects. But the cases I'm not sure are the ones where there was a sense of heaviness or a fog that won't go away. Again, just speculation on my part. But I was wondering, how was the rest of that day for you? Other than obviously being shaken up.




All my life I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific...

Oh that was a hilarious post that you're speaking of EP! Don't make me use my new zapper powers on it! It brings me joy!

I am so glad to hear you are better. Yes, prayer has given me so much strength, even through the darkest hours. And you know you have your friends here! You have given so much help and encouragement to others...........let us always do the same for you.

I just wish i could refrain from coming on here when i've been out, when you're in that way, you think what your writing's hillarious, then wake up in the morning and then have a slight recollection and think, 'c**p' what did i put. The computer is always so slow to load up too, ha ha

I know you and others are always there for me and others, you're all special!!

hi highpriestess,

i experienced SP since I was 14, few times a day, and now at 35, I hv learnt to control it. I just posted my experience on this web in search for answer and cure to SP and other recent experiences I had. For SP, I tried-and-tested these methods and they somehow help me to be in control:


1) If you r Christian, sleep with your Bible or Cross. I am Muslim, not fanatic, but since that started, I sleep with my Quran next to me. It's like a safety blanket, to assure me that nothing is greater than God. That I am in His protection. For atheist, I normally tell them to hv a picture of someone who loves them and always protect them on their bedside table. When you go to sleep, you feel like you r protected from harm.

2) Try sleeping on your right side with both legs held together. So, when you start hearing the buzzing noise, try to get toes on one leg to touch toes on the other leg. In my case, any movement, even the slightest one can stop it.

3) Check with doctors in case it is related to medical condition. Do not take sleeping pill to help you sleep. It wont do any good and it wont stop SP to happen.

4) If you are married or having partner, sleep with you holding him/her. If you or your partner are not comfortable with this, then just put your leg just touching or close to your partner's leg. In my case, when SP happened, I will work hard to kick my ex-hubby's leg. As soon as I hear his voice or he moves or kick his legs on mine back, my SP disappears. Now when I think of this one, I find it very funny. But it helps. Thank God, when I was still married to him, I seldom had SP.

5) Finally, and I pray that you wont hv to come to this. Do this only if you live and sleep alone because it will inconvenience others and even yourself. Sleep with lights and TV on. I do this only after my divorce because I cannot kick my ex's legs anymore. Doing this to others even to your friends or family members might severe your ties with them Icontexto-emoticons-01-032x032 In my case, noise from TV or radio is noisier than the SP buzzing noise, so, it's like TV noise defeating the SP noise, therefore, no SP. As for the light, it doesnt hv to be bright light, even aquarium light will do.

I cannot explain why all these work on me in dealing with SP, but I will do and try anything as long as it's legal just so I can control it. Experiencing SP, whether explainable or not by science, is not fun to those who experienced it esp on frequent basis.

Hv faith and good luck, dear.

Very interesting story!

I actually have a similar one.

Note - This took place about a year and a bit ago when I was living at my old house (which I have reason to believe was haunted). I personally lived in a granny flat behind the house as I was given the choice to move into their when we first arrived at the house when I was 10. Every morning I used to get up for early surfs at say 5am and as I would make my way round the side of the house and out the gate I would feel a really cold shiver down my back and pressure on the back of my neck, then I would see dark, shadowy figures on the fence next to me which weren't my own shadow. I later started seeing orbs out of the corner of my eye (but very rarely would this happen!).

Anyhow...
One morning I awoke to go for a surf and I do remember actually waking up, but I was unable to move any muscle in my body, not even my eyes. Whenever I did I would feel an immense pins and needles feeling throughout my whole entire body. This lasted for around 10 seconds then suddenly stopped and it felt as if I was waking up for a second time but this time I had control over my muscles.

Probably the strangest thing to ever happen to me! And it has never happened since either.

I'd love to hear if anyone has a similar story or some advice on the matter.

I had experienced sleep paralysis twice when I was in my late teens. I don't recall anything evil, just a little confusion about what was holding me down. Both times I was asleep on my stomach, something I did frequently when I was very young. Not too much to report on these events.

However, I had a single episode of sleep paralysis just a few months ago. I was not fully asleep as the sun was already shining in my room. I just didn't want to get up yet. Then I heard someone pounding on the front door, and then all kinds of noise that sounded like something was tearing up the entire house. I don't get confrontational unless someone else has forced me into that position. I was ready to deliver a big time butt kicking.

I wanted to get up and go kick somebody's ***. That is when I was being held down by something on my back, just as it happened many years ago. The noise was getting closer and I was desperate to get on my feet. I think I prayed and asked Jesus help me. Just then I could move a little, whatever was holding me down didn't let go easily.

One side of my bed is against a wall, so I rolled off my stomach on to my left side facing the wall. If I had rolled to the right, I would have been on the floor. And then I flipped over on to my right side. I saw something like a human. He had some kind of weapon..., can't recall that part very well. He was dressed like cowboys once did, wearing a duster, the boots, the big hat, and the face was strange. Looked like old skin streched over a skull no flesh on the bones, and there were no eyes in the head and no nose. I could see all his teeth, and he stood about 7 feet tall. When my feet finally hit the floor, I looked again and he was gone, and the bedroom door was closed.

By definition it had to be a poltergeist making all the noise, and some "thing" on my back holding me down. Very strange. Not just a bad dream, unless you can dream with your eyes wide open and you're awake.

I thought that only young people experienced this..., I'm well past 50.
Forgiveness is next to deity.
