        I don't think so . That may work with you. I cure myself without the aid of someone I don't believe in. !

      I actually saw a movie on this not to long ago (can't remember the name of it) but it was interesting as I had not heard of this before.

      Yes, I've experienced this. Sometimes when I'm really tired and sleeping on my back, I wake up and can't move. I can finally move my finger or eyelid a little bit and then I can eventually move for real.

      I know some people see things when they have this, but I never have. I do hear noises, though. Usually, I hear growly sounds or low conversations as if people are discussing me. It's weird.

      The last time I experienced this, I thought to myself, "It must be sleep paralysis." And then I woke up! That seemed to help me snap out of it.

      I have exerience sleep paralysis since I was a child.  During this state, I experience horrifying nightmares that feel too real. 

      Sometimes I will have an Incubus on top of me, or a Leprechaun standing next to my bed, right next to my head. I try desperately to get out of bed and run, but I can't move a muscle.  I try desperately to scream, but my voice is gone.
      It's terrifying.

      I remember once a little green hideous being was walking toward me as I was lying in bed.  My first reaction was to throw the covers off and run! But the covers seemed to be made of granite, and I couldn't move a muscle. The being proceeded to walk right up to the bed, and grab my face.  Not being able to move or scream for help, I passed out.

      Sleep paralysis happens when we are in deep sleep and REM at the same time.

          I am sure it's not what is described in that outlandish video I just watched.  This is a serious affliction, and this superstitious nonsense is an affront to anyone suffering from sleep paralysis.

          Demons??? This is the twenty-first century.  Could we please try to remember that! 

          But thanks for your concern about people who suffer with this.

                    If you open a thread it's because you want pople to comment, it I think. How can I comment on the topic without talking directly to you ?
                    Do you know what a forum is ?  Because this is what it is: Commenting and debating
                    You shouldn't have open a thread then .

      I hate having sleep paralysis! My last episode was about two months ago. It was not fun. I always feel like I can't breathe and it scares me!

      sad

      Tantrum, I follow you around the forums because you make sarcasm a splendid work of art. My obtuseness has got the better of me on this one.

      Tantrum,

      But this thread was somewhat deceiving.  It appeared to be a forum to discuss the topic of Sleep Paralysis--but it's in the religious forum.  That should have been a red flag.

        I noticed that of course. My first post says so.
        that's why I came back to discuss. I don't like deceivers.

      Sleep Paralysis is not supernatural sorry to burst your bubble. I think you need to go talk to a real doctor about the situation. yes there may be demons in the world but that isn't the cause of sleep paralysis.

      This used to happen to me a lot. It's not happening while you're asleep, it's just as you're switching - for me it's always when I wake up. I used to think I had almost died because my lungs felt deflated and I couldn't move to get a breath. I'd try to call one of my kids in but of course, I couldn't. Once I got "used to it", I was able to go back to sleep, it never happened twice in a row. Other times I would concentrate all my effort on moving one finger. If it worked, I soon came out of it.

      Apparently it happens because while we're sleeping, our motor connections are "turned off" so that we don't act out our dreams; in people experiencing sleep paralysis, we wake up before we're reconnected. It's terrifying!

      Only once have I had any of those feelings of evil - when it started I attributed it to having read about it somewhere once. The extreme feeling of a presence of intense evil grew so much that it scared me beyond terror though, I automatically did what I had read or heard about and prayed "Jesus" a few times and it vanished immediately. Still don't know what to make of that, I'm rather annoyed actually. As far as I know, it's a biological phenomenon so why that had to happen, even if just once, I don't know.

        That's perplexing. Why do you think prayer helped?

      I just read mr voodoo's post on it again, I commented there before. This time it struck me, the word 'instinctive'. That's how the prayer came about, just crying out Jesus in terror in my mind is not what I think of as prayer but whatever. It's just what I did and everything stopped immediately so no complaints from me!

      By the way, I hope someone will respond to tantrum's comment about people of other religious beliefs that wouldn't think about Jesus, what happens then?

      Anyone experienced the whole evil/terror/demon feeling that doesn't know a Jesus religion?
