Sleep Paralysis Victim Shares Experience on Radio

Screenwriter/Producer - boba, kelumpuhan tidur

I was recently on Talktainment Radio talking about the film project “Aimless”  We are still in the fundraising stage so please listen to the podcast on our homepage and share to show support.. http://www.themovieaimless.com

Through the years of chasing my dream of making this film a reality; I have found that Sleep Paralysis can affect anyone from age, race and culture but it is particularly more prevalent in certain areas. Those areas are Indonesia and Bangladesh and surrounding areas with the demographics being males aged 18-24. In Bangladesh, the phenomenon of sleep paralysis is referred to as boba meaning “speechless” for the reason that people can’t move their body and can’t talk even if they want.

In Indonesia

it is called kelumpuhan tidur. So the question is why does this phenomenon occur in these areas/culture more than the Americas or anywhere else.. is it their cultural beliefs? The myths and stories that keep getting passed down from generation to generation, genetics, or the combination of both, nature vs. nurture. There is a great thread/discussion on the hallucinations during #SleepParalysis on Ask.com; please chime in… Leave your opinions and comments below.

How to Break Free From Sleep Paralysis

posted by CyFLY on February 12, 2013

Sleep Paralysis - Astral Projection - Lucid Dreaming

Astral Projection

Paralysis in sleep is a normal condition. The body secretes hormones (Glycine, GABA) 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 sleep paralysis (Gui Ya, Kelumpuhan tidur, dormire paralisi) 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 lead to the fear of someone choking you. Eventually the paralysis departs and you return back to a normal state.

If you know someone who has experienced this phenomenon they may try to explain how terrifying it is… Here are some ways to break free from sleep paralysis next time it happens.

 

  • Do not fear the experience (this is very difficult and takes mind control) the more you fear it the more intense the paralysis becomes and the longer it may last…
  • Wiggle your toe or maybe try to clinch your fist… (yes I know you are paralyzed so this may not seem like an option but again it is a test of will power)

 

HOW TO STOP SLEEP PARALYSIS

 

  • Don’t fight it – go with the flow… understand that this is a unique experience and nothing negative is going to happen to you although you may feel like there is.. this can lead to an out of body experience – astral projection… you will then have a personal testimony that you are a spiritual being having a human/earthly experience.
  • Control your breathing… relax and determine what type of breathing calms you down.. short quick breaths (like you are having a baby) can bring you out of the paralysis faster.
  • Have your sleep partner wake you up by shaking you back to normal (you may have to grunt to get their attention, and this may not work if your partner is sound asleep next to you already)
  • Call out in the name of JESUS (your faith in JESUS as your protector will have this experience dissipate immediately)  Checkout http://www.Facebook.com/SleepParalysis to see the testimonies from people this has worked for (including myself!) Luke 10:17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

 

Please post any other suggestions you may have for the benefit of others!!!
