Find Out How to Turn Your Sleep Paralysis into a Positive Out-of-Body Experience

 

Last week ended one of the longest stretches I had ever had in my life without a sleep paralysis attack. My last one previously was on April 7th, 2013. I know this because it was one of the most terrifying attacks I had ever experienced. I couldn’t forget it. It haunted me all day. I had to write a poem to try and shake off my fear.

 

The demon seems to be back. I’m not sure I believe there really is a demon haunting me, but I am writing this at 2 AM, January 15th, 2015. Over a year and a half without out an attack had been great. I’ve now had a second attack in as many weeks. The first attack of this year was strange, atypical. Instead of my haunting demon, I merely thought there was a burglar in the house and I was unable to move to defend myself. But the attack I just woke up from was the most intense attack I think I ever had.

 

It’s been thirty minutes since I woke up and I am still shaking.

 

Before, the demon—the shadowy presences I often see during my sleep paralysis attacks—would stand at the door of my bedroom just staring at me while I lay pinned on my bed, unable to move. Tonight, it hovered over me, an inky shadow, drifting slowly closer to me, trying to touch me. To enter my mouth. There was a whispering voice. I couldn’t understand it, I had never heard it.

Is Sleep Paralysis a gateway for demons?

 

 

Never before had the demon of my hallucination enter my room. Sleep paralysis is so insidious. I try to rationalize it away as a nightmare. Some product of my subconscious. It couldn’t really be a demon. But when your lying there, unable to move, seeing this inky darkness swirling above you full of hatred, it is so hard to be sure.

 

There is one thing that almost convinces me that it is real. The door opening. A few years ago, I began to notice a pattern that proceeded my attacks. My bedroom door would open. I had a bad spate, where I would get attacks every few weeks. There was this moment when I would dream my bedroom door open and I would know an attack was about to happen, feel my body begin to paralyze, and I would wake up. After a few times of waking up, the attacks lessened. I was on to it.

 

Then things changed in my dreams. Instead of the door opening on its own, it would be people I know coming into my room on innocuous requests. Tonight, right before the attack, I dreamed my roommate was dropping off a package that had been delivered. It tricks me. It gives my subconscious a plausible reason why my bedroom door is opened before attacking.

See. It’s so hard not to think it’s a real demon and not just some vagary of nerves firing in my mind. It is so insidious. It undermines my belief in what is real and solid and what is in my imagination, blurring the lines. Where do dreams and nightmares end and reality begin?

“What is truth?”

The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

What is SLEEP PARALYSIS?

What is Sleep Paralysis?  Did you know we are all paralyzed when we sleep?

 

Paralysis while asleep is a normal condition. The body secretes hormones which relax certain muscles and prevent you from acting out your dreams.  If it didn’t you would be in quite some danger every time you went to sleep.  The process of waking up might seem quite simple to you.  But it’s actually a complex process involving many physiological changes.  One of these is the reversal of the paralysis.  People experience the fear of sleep paralysis when the hormone doesn’t wear off fast enough as they wake up.

 

They remain paralyzed though conscious. Because they have little sensation from their body, if they are lying on their backs, it can feel like someone is sitting on their chest or fear of an evil presence attacking them, a very paranormal experience.  Eventually the paralysis departs and normal functions can be resumed.
