|My Experience With Sleep Paralysis by Dreadlock69(m): 11:59am On Dec 11, 2020|
I created this topic in this section to get a wider audience please contribute if you have /had the experience
Early my teenage years, I do have a female neighbor very close we play and do all things together both bad and good you know what I mean,most times she will sleep and her eyes will be open lying at her back ,I do mock her about this and laugh about it .she always say she can't control it that I won't understand that she see everything happening around her but can't move ,I'll be like how is it possible I don't believe you but she will say dreadlock69 you won't understand.though she really stressed herself sleeping late but she is very bright with her books my parents used her to mock me.
However mine started when I was ss2 I could remember vividly well it happened one night I was sleeping all of a sudden something griped me I can't move I can't breath it was like something or someone inside the room was taking my life force out of me ,I'm very much aware of my environment but when it's stopped I be gasping for air and my heart will be racing ,this repeatedly happens every night at times worst and horrifying ,one night it happened again I was terrified and told my parents they told me nothing gonna happen that I should pray over it.
"Omo nah just the beginning I dey see ooo"
Later when I finish my secondary school I still experiencing it but ,this time round I can breath well but still see images .then I got my new phone I surfed the internet then I came across an article talking about this which seems to relate to what I experience then I made more and more research and findings which were scarying and calming.i remember one time I'd told my brother not to touch my phone strictly warning him then I slept off and the sleep paralysis started I woke up but can't do anything can't move ,can't talk just lifeless but I can see and I'm aware of what is going on in my environment and behold my brother was using my phone I was in anger but I can't do anything I just lay there lifeless with anger in me till it fades off thank his stars he went out before I regain consciousness
Another experience was when I watching a horror movie it happened the again when I was having a nap I was so scared I just have to close my eyes not to see images.
Later on I had full control over it and sometimes I transit from that state to lucid dreaming. Then I had a good work with all good amenities not stressful you can take a nap anytime you like , funny enough my partner experience it also I noticed the day he was sleeping but his eyes where open trying hard to move his body ,I just left him till it's fade off
So one day I was having a nap in the bedroom my boss was calling me I could hear him but I can't move anything just laying lifeless I was praying he should not catch me in this state .
Sometimes I'll have to call my partner but he is still in that state but I have to wake up,which he do wake up looking frightened.
I just learned how to lived with it cause I can't do anything bout it and feel for people who experience this but don't know how to manage it
Probably transit from that state to lucid dreaming
Maybe someday I'll have to tell my spouse or someone to close to me to not get frightened if they see me like that maybe a girlfriend, a wife ,my child I can't say for now

There is nothing spiritual about your problem. To reduce the rate at which you experience sleep paralysis, try and set multiple alarm clocks to wake you from your sleep at intervals. Also, try and force yourself out of your temporarily paralysed state each time you experience it. It might be difficult at first, but with time you might be able to just snap out of it at will. its all about your mental strength.
PS: The suggestions I've given do not have any scientific backing. They are just my opinion and it possibly might not work.
I sincerely hope that you find solution to your problem quickly.
There is nothing special about FTC.

Don't let what you read online deceive you that it is sleeping paralysis.
What is happening to you is demonic. You are under witchcraft attack. Nobody who have such experience that won't suffer one misfortune or the other. Some ignorant dudes will soon land and start claiming intellectuals,and forming technocrats by calling black people ignorant.
But bro, take my word for it,you are under demonic siege,go for deliverance because I was in that situation of yours ,I did deliverance and am totally free from that rubbish. I sleep perfectly well like a baby for many years now

I used to suffer from this s**t too. I love keeping everything to myself as a cancer that i am untill i couldn't take it no more. I fear it might someday leads to my sudden death as i was suffering from minor heart prob then too.
It was killing me, i go within a snap, helpless, motionless but wide awake and well. It happened to me one day in the presence of my younger brother, when i came back he asked what happened and i was like i saw Jesus, cuz it did seems i saw some supernatural being.
Long story short sha, my bro told my mum and i was forced to tell mum everything, so she told me it's an attack from the evil world. I fasted and prayed. I've bn free from that s**t ever since then.
So my brother pray. That s**t ain't ordinary.

Well as 4 mine, i knw i'm awake but cant move, my eyes are never opened tho..
I've grown conscious to mine that i usually knw when i'm slipping into it (it feels like when someone drowning or falling into deep pit) nd can come out of it.(i just force myself out, like forcefully turning ur neck sideways or moving ur body part)
I dnt knw abt d spiritual part but mine relates to logical part.
Although d 1st time it happened to me, i did see an image of someone(human like) over me. After then, i've never seen any damn thing.
It doesnt happen as frequent as op's own though. It's like 3 times in a year or so or nt.

Could be natural
Could be spiritual
Depending on which side of it you decide to believe, if you believe it's spiritual then it becomes spiritual and if you believe it's natural so it be.

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 couldn't 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. Can this truly be RAPTURE . 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. Nigeria is hell itself especially in this Buhari era. I can't wait to Japa to heaven like US or Canada.

Sleep paralysis is very scary.
The last time it happened to me was during my final year in school, I was stressed that period. It made me so scared that I couldn’t continue sleeping in the room, knocked on my neighbor’s door around 2am and told them someone wanted to kill me
I did my research the next morning, read about ways to prevent it from happening, I’ve been good since then.

It is scientifically proven that your conciousness has a chance of wandering around familiar enviroment this is as a result of stress.
It's not religious related o, cause religious people nowadays call simple malaria attack from the devil

First of all, your use of English is highly poor.
Secondly, sleep paralysis is not spiritual but watch Mr righteousness as he comes to tell you how far away you've been from God and that you need deliverance. That guy can spew rubbish.
Sleep paralysis is a situation where you are awake but the muscles that controls us during REM which prevents us from acting out our dream is not fully active.
Thirdly, what kind of a weird job do you have that allows you sleep in a bedroom? That's loud.
The fourth, you're not even experiencing total sleep paralysis, seems to me like you're half-experiencing sleep paralysis and possibly need to get your brain checked, maybe you're suffering from narcolepsy.

You're on your path to lucid dreaming.
The sleep paralysis will certainly disappear.
