    Is it sleep paralysis or something more?

    Okay so twice in the last 4 months I have had this sleeping experience. In my dream Im in first person like real life in the exact setting that Im sleeping in except one small detail for example a light may be on in the dream. However Im laying the same way, same place, direction. Then all of a sudden it feels like I am being pushed or forced into my bed and consumed, while one half of my body heats up extremely. I try to call out or move and I cant. I usually break free and can move after a few seconds, but I cant talk for a little while after.

    I am a Christian and god fearing. Let me know.

    That sounds like sleep paralysis. Inability to move is the key element, but many people have physical sensations as well. Many people describe it like something sitting on their chest, though, I am certain people can have very different sensations.

    One common possible explanation often given for this phenomenon is stress. Are you especially stressed over the past four months? Change in schedule, sleeping less, Illness, etc. Those might be explanations, however, only a professional can tell you for certain.

    I have had theses experiences before. They can be terrifying.

    During dreams, especially nightmares, the body tends to act out the events, meaning we may reach for something or even walk as a result of dreaming. To protect a person from this the body becomes paralyzed. There are times after our body is paralyzed, that we awaken, this happens to some people more often than others.

    It is nothing to be alarmed about.
    On the other hand I do believe in extraterrestrials, so communicate with them and after a while, if it is an ET they will let you know somehow that they are near

    I've had a few really bad dreams that I was consciously aware of while sleeping. One such dream was one in which I couldn't move IN the dream I was having. I called out to the Lord Jesus Christ to help me, and I was able to move immediately, and woke up shortly after doing so.

    I have an idea of why sleep paralysis happens because of that one event in my life, and I haven't been having problems since that time. The Lord is opening my eyes to a lot of things, that I previously just didn't want to know about. I had my head in the sand, and was spiritually blind.
