Each time i leave my Windows open at night before going to bed esp after a heavy downpour, then i experience sleep paralysis. Cold is a strong contributing factor.


There are so many myths about this phenomenon. The physicist, biologists theologians, spiritualist etc.but alas i go with biologists' explanation.

Its pure spiritual oppression . While i was still experiencing it i decided to test if it is a being beside it or just normal biological experience. One day when i wanted to sleep i put an object on my neck and covered it with cloth. Later i fell into a semi conscious state and felt somebody using leg to check out what was on my neck.

IceColdVeins:
Medicalnewstoday.com defined sleep paralysis as a feeling of being unable to move, either at the onset of sleep or upon awakening. The individual's senses and awareness are intact, but they may feel as if there is pressure on them, or as if they are choking. It may be accompanied by hallucinations and intense fear.

In Icecoldvein's opinion, sleep paralysis has a plethora of arguments surrounding it. Researchers uphold various scientific hypothesis that represent sleep paralysis as a biological phenomenal, some even insisted that it only happens when your brain wakes up a few seconds before the peripheral nervous complex (the neurons in your body parts), which in turn triggers slow responses to the brain's information by body parts. On the other hand, Spiritualists maintained the notion that sleep paralysis is designed by demons and can only be remedied spiritually.

I used to have sleep paralysis a lot until it stopped, when I embraced some spiritual antidotes.

Below is still the scariest sleep paralysis experience that I ever had......

I heard my ex's voice yell a threat at me, I was scared and tried to get up, realised I was six fts below ground level with a shiny grave moulded untop of me. And suddenly, the skies changed from it's astonishing high resolution filters to the dreadful black and white effect, as it coughed a heavy thunder down my grave....My mummied body immediately knew it was in for it......I tried fleeing from the horrifying dream, never knew a worse comeuppance awaited me. I was thrown into a solid 40 seconds of sleep paralysis.... before I opened my eyes, hissed and mumbled 'Una papa. I don wake up'

Dear NL,
What are your experiences and beliefs about sleep paralysis ? Your inputs may put some people experiencing it at ease.

Kindly share!!

It happens after nigthmare tll

I recall my dad telling my mom how an evil spirit held him in the bed and couldn’t let him move. The prayer that night wasn’t a funny one. Deep down I knew he only had pl. paralysis.
Well about mine. I saw a Jesus like figure talking to me and telling me to YESrepent, out of fear I tried moving from my bed but this unknown force held me down for some seconds. When I was finally able to move i noticed I had tears in my eyes. This happened even before I knew of the term sleep paralysis. I always told my friends I saw Jesus back then. If it was sleep paralysis or Jesus I can’t even tell

I don't know if mine is sleep paralysis but I'm always experiencing this sudden jerk from sleep. Most times befor the knee jerk, I do see myself falling from a cliff or high place and in response to the free fall, my knee jerks and my whole body suddenly comes back to life, instead of a gradual process.
But generally for me o, when I wake up, it takes at least 30-45min for me to act normal, during that period of abnormalities, I can see my parents and just ignore them. I just become immobile but eyes wide open but temporarily inactive.

Sleep paralysis was my regular customer some two years ago due to the fact that I like sleeping late.


The remedy for me then were:

-- drinking excess water.
--pouring water on my head.
--having a bath.
--sleeping early. undecided undecided

People need to realize there's nothing spiritual about it.

[b] Mine has reduced but let me share a recent experience with you. One evening before I went to bed, I decided to wash my dirty white singlet and hung it above the shower rail in the bathroom. I usually switch off the light before sleeping but this time I could detect if the light switch was turned on or off because NEPA refused to do the needful. Out of fatigue, I left the bathroom door open and went to bed which is opposite to the door but extreme end of the room.

I don't know how long I have slept, but suddenly felt a cold breeze with eolian sound. I opened my eyes but couldn't move all I could see was a very bright blue cloud with an angel carrying a sliver trumpet. I forced myself to fly up but I couldn't. RAPTURE is here. I was still in fear of making heaven when I finally gained conscious.

Haa. NEPA is at work again. OX standing fan rotating at its highest speed; the white light in the bathroom illuminating the terracotta bathroom blue tiles on the wall and the singlet looks like an angel with the shower hose head looking like trumpet. I realized it wasn't RAPTURE after all just some sleeping paralysis grin [/b]
God was speaking to you

It's very common if you sleep under stressful conditions and in awkward positions. Those that work night shifts may understand.

Had when I sleep extremely late, that's the only time I experienced it.

Can't narrate any cus I've had hundreds of it.

It ain't funny sometimes, but I think it's kind of hereditary cus mom had them too... But she believes they're spiritual attacks, my belief defers.
