Share Your "Sleep Paralysis" Experience! by Xenry: 1:44pm On Nov 15, 2021
Sleep paralysis (plural: sleep paralyses) is a state, during waking up or falling asleep, in which a person is aware but unable to move or speak.
During an episode, one may hallucinate (hear, feel, or see things that are not there), which often results in fear. Episodes generally last less than a couple of minutes. It may occur as a single episode or be recurrent.
The condition can be triggered by sleep deprivation, psychological stress, or abnormal sleep cycles. The underlying mechanism is believed to involve a dysfunction in REM sleep.
Have you experienced sleep paralysis before? Share your experience!
I have experienced it before: I woked up, but couldn't move, tried to speak/call out for help, but couldn't.
The only part of my body that could move then was my feet, but in a very, very slow motion.
I also hallucinated: I heard my brother calling me, but it's all in my mind because this guy wasn't even at home then.
After some time, it started fading away and I could move my body again.
I had no difficulty in breathing. It's scary, because you would feel trapped, and not being able to move your body. And also, hallucinations could cause fear, and sometimes you would feel another person's presence in your room.

To some, it's demonic. To others, it's pretty normal. Share your own experience.

I don’t know if it’s sleeping paralysis or spiritual paralysis.

I moved to a room that belong to my late aunt, in two weeks, I had more than 3 sleeping paralysis.

The first time I had sleeping paralysis, I just shouted “Jesus” instead the normal “in the name of Jesus”. Because there’s belief that shouting “in the name of Jesus” will set you free if you experiencing the spiritual attack.

But note; if you are not strong enough, you might not be able to complete the sentence and the potency is in name.

So when I had sleeping paralysis I just shouted Jesus” and I was set free.

I had to go back to my room after few weeks. At lest, nightmare is better than Sleeping paralysis and incessant migraine.

The nightmare continues.........

If don’t understand read my signature

I kept money inside my pocket and slept off. I saw Peter entering my room, and then he searched my pocket and took out my 5k.

I was trying to open my eyes but I couldn't. I tried saying a word but I couldn't. I started breathing heavily.

I had to keep increasing my breathing level until I woke up breathing heavily. I searched my pocket and saw my 5k.


Had it been I couldn't find my 5k, Peter would have been in trouble.

I don't know exactly what always causes my sleep paralysis but I know whenever I'm at it, I always scream out loud while sleeping.

Mine doesn't come often, perhaps once in two months but I'll always have my brother to thank cos he's always there to wake me up from the paralysis.

First time I experienced it was in 2013, I went to supervise the building of a hostel in Ibillo, I felt someone like an old woman approach the window, then the experience started, I was screaming Jesus inaudibly yet the presser pressed me to its satisfaction grin

The worst experience was in 2019 when I went to supervise a renovation at Ekpoma, I felt the walls of a standard room closing in on me, then the pressing started, it was the longest and scariest I ever had, I woke up and felt probably it was the clients nephew who threatened me when I first got there that was behind it grin

I always seem to know when it is about to start, if I am fast enough to lie on my side, I can escape it, lying on my tommy makes it lesser or even does not happen but lying face up seem to be an invitation grin grin grin

Lemme share dis one
This was during my teenage years, all my famz left home for an outing excluding me, so I tried taking some nap, lo and behold I started receiving this pressing, I could vividly see someone leaving the house my thought was that he came in to rob stuffs, all my efforts to wake up was abortive, after some seconds I woke up just to realize I closed the door before sleeping I just lose the sleep straight up.

Even in Nature, we have negative and positive forces.
So science should stop deceiving the gullible with another name for what is known already in the religions of the world.

If you don't sleep at night but sleep well in the day, it's not likely to happen
