Are There Evil Spirits In Your Room Or Is It Sleep Paralysis? by datedogirl(f): 11:54am On Feb 24, 2020
One of the spooky things anyone can ever experience is, sleep paralysis; to see yourself paralyzed for a few minutes while you see stuff… or feel the presence of another being in your room is simply scaring.

However, science has answers to this experience, so after this article, it is left for you to decide if the experience is as a result of evil spirits in your room, or simply stress. Let’s take a look, shall we?

According to sleep researchers, sleep paralysis is a sign that your body is not moving smoothly through the stages of sleep. Besides, sleep paralysis is rarely linked to deep underlying psychiatric problems.

Furthermore, symptoms of sleep paralysis have been described in many ways and mostly attributed to an evil presence over the centuries.

In essence, it is believed that unseen night demons in ancient times, the old hag in Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, and alien abductors are responsible for sleeping paralysis.

Almost, if not all, cultures throughout history have stories of shadowy evil creatures that terrify humans at night, while they watch with a paralyzed body. People have looked for explanations for this spooky sleep-time paralysis.

What is sleep paralysis?

SP is a feeling of being conscious of your environment, but unable to move. It happens when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, the person may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds to a few minutes. Some persons may also feel pressure or a sense of choking during this experience.

SP may accompany other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, which is an overpowering need to sleep caused by a problem with the brain’s ability to regulate sleep.

Furthermore, sleep paralysis usually occurs one of two times; when you are falling asleep, hypnogogic, or predomital sleep paralysis. Also, when you are waking up- hypnopompic or postdormital sleep paralysis.


What happens during Hypnagogic SP?

Your body slowly relaxes as you fall asleep; typically, you become less aware, so you do not notice the change. However, if you become or remain aware while falling asleep, you may notice that you cannot move or speak.

What is happens during Hypnopompic SP?

Your body alternates between rapid eye movement (REM) and non-rapid eye movement (N-REM) during sleep. One cycle of REM and NREM sleep lasts about 90 minutes. NREM sleep happens first and takes up to 75% of your overall sleep time. During NREM sleep, your body relaxes and restores itself.

At the end of NREM, your sleep shifts to REM, your eyes move quickly, and dreams occur, however, the rest of your body stays calm. The muscles are turned off during REM sleep. If a person becomes aware before the REM cycle has finished, he may notice that they cannot move or speak.

This thing wey u don give big name "Sleep Paralysis" , is caused by evil powers. This discussion for sweet for pidgin English. When u sleep something go come press you, u no go fit shout, even talk. Your mouth go open, but no sound go vomit, sometimes person go dey with u but e no go know wetin they do u.
The only cure, na prayer. Not just prayer oh! Prayer of Faith. MFM KIND OF PRAYER na im this thing dey respect. This one no be medical.

No spirit.

Sleep paralysis is ubiquitous in every individual s.

Everything has to do with the brain.

You sleep, then for about 17 minutes. You try to wake up but instead you can't, it looks as if you are aware of what's happening but you ain't aware. You see images, see movements, it seems as if you need a power to boost your system so that you can rise.

You breath heavily and faster just to stay alive.
Should I say fainting or unconsciousness of the brain.


Our Christian brothers would say that it's evil spirit that is pressing your heart.


Doctors would say your brain is trying to cope with the environment.

If you don't wanna experience sleep paralysis, sleep facing sideways.

Don't face up.

Lol, as expected. However, there are things we can handle, without sweating on the altar of prayer. We don't need to disturb heaven's gate on everything we face in life. That's why we have brains to think in the first place. Nonetheless, if prayers work for you, then use. grin

Sleeping side ways could work, but not everyone can control their sleeping position while they sleep. They may sleep sideways on the bed and wake up facing up on the floor... just kidding though.

There are other factors you need to consider when treating or preventing sleep paralysis.

I experienced it myself too, that's what inspired the article. It was so severe, that I hated it when it is nighttime during my service year. I noticed the peaceful night sleep when I stop working late and I started also working out (exercise).

I was accused of witchcraft because someone in my room experienced this.

Oh ho... sorry about that. I can imagine how you felt. Too bad a lot of us assume it has to do with witchcraft. When in actual sense, the majority of what we experience has to do with our habits.

You described it well, and I believed you're talking from experience. However, it's not caused by evil spirits. It's called sleep paralysis, as the OP rightly wrote. That "evil spirit" usually doesn't come when one sleeps sideways or prone/face-down. Or maybe, nyash de fear am?

1) who tell u i sell pure water?? cus u see me standing beside a dyna abi?? were nie, dat is what we use in hauling out our goods from from the farm/bush/villages. We dont sell pure water, alaigbon, we buy and sell cocoa.

2) The reason u said u too mumu is wat i dont know, well, i dont realy need to knw sha, but if its wat u re tinking..taaa, find the sissy, simp, and ur pussy ass nigga go front, am not one.
I only asked him if he believes its his prayer dat turns tins around, and if he had said yes den i would have called him a novice who have been brainwashed by daddy GOs dem and i would hav placed some questions before him to answer concerning prayer and spirituality, i would have cited some biblical examples which does not make me bliv in prayer dat much but he conquered and simply answered me dat its not his prayer but GOD den i lost my guard.
dat is why i said his reply was epic.

but in ur mind now, u tink i hav an ulterior motive abi?? oponu.

who even told u dat person is a lady? am 90% sure dat he's a man and not a woman, besudes, 95% of "f" monikers on dis forum are guys so what are u sayin??

Na u mumu pass, i dont take pleasure in insulting people but since u dont know how to atleast show mutual respect, den u decv everything u recv from me.

As i stated earlier, u re d real oponu, imbecilic being who wouldn't mind his business.

To see u dey hungty me sef make i show u dat agberoism in me. I dont want to call u a basta.rd
