Why's this in christianity, prayers forum ? Jews, hindus and muslims don't get sleep Paralysis ?
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.
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 want to know what you're dealing with ,you should hear all the opinions, not only the ones you like.
And I'm here because this is a free forum, and if I want to comment I do. If you don't like it don't read me .
EXCUSE ME !! ??
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 .
If you feel yourself belittled, that's not my problem. It seems you have some issues there. I have only given my opinion. And as far as I know ,you can't prove what you believe is true. Isn't it ?
So ? do you like to argue just because? Are you bored ? nothing intersting in your life ?
I don't have more time for you
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!
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.
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.
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.
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?
