I have sleep paralysis a lot, but I never see any figures. It's still ******* scary, but you just have to calm your nerves and you'll be good. i once had sleep paralysis for 10 seconds and it felt like an eternity. I want to lucid dream, but I can't do it. For those of you who can, you are damn good.

sleep paralysis "happens" to me quite a lot. It is awful. Every time. Sometimes I tell myself that if it happens again (which it will) to withstand it to find out what else can happen. I just can't seem to do it. I know the feeling exactly when it is about to happen, so I can get myself out of it before I go in. But sometimes I can't stop it from happening. The worst was a couple weeks ago I had one and could not for the life of me get out of it and my leg went up in the air and something pulled me down my bed and that's when I finally woke up. haven't done it since but that was the worst experience I ever had with it. I don't recommend trying to have sleep paralysis. but if you want to know how to scare the **** out of yourself, go for it.


oh and it's terribly hard to talk during them too. I usually get out a whimper or a muffly sound for a cry for help. but that is the best I can do.

Did you literally move your leg etc, or was that just in your head?

Never tried having lucid dreams, but I do get sleep paralisis often.
In south korea there is a popular belief that if you are able to move your fingers or toes you will get out of the paralisis. In my cases this is true. It won't immediately have you move, but it will make the process faster. So I usually use this method to calm myself and wake up.

Thing is, I once had a sleep paralisis, and in the dream/nightmare I experienced, a ghost was holding my hands and toes saying "can't move them huh?". Single most scary nightmare in my life.

The method that this person is showing is called WILD (wake induced lucid dream). Sleep paralysis is just a side effect. The hallucinations soon turn into your dream world as long as you don't pay attention to them. Plus, the hallucinations you see in your room really depend on how you react to being paralyzed in bed. If you start panicking, you will begin seeing frightening figures. If you are calm then you'll see.... something calm. You're not supposed to open your eyes during sleep paralysis, which is why this person was ill-brained. If I do open my eyes, all I see is a black cat walking across my feet.

There's other ways of lucid dreaming that seem to work better (WILD is directed towards 'advanced' lucid dreamers). The one that seems to work for me is called MILD (mnemonically induced lucid dream) and it doesn't involve experiencing what this person did. All you have to do is while you're in bed falling asleep, think to yourself that you'll have a lucid dream and that the next time you're dreaming you'll realize that you're dreaming. When you dream later that night, you should be walking around in your dream world and then suddenly realize 'hey this isn't real' and there you go.

There's also the NILD, nightmare induced lucid dream. Basically, whenever you have a nightmare you usually have the notion that you're in a nightmare and should wake up. Since you know you're in a nightmare, you can just become lucid and turn it into a regular dream.

I think I've had sleep paralysis before, but I've never hallucinated. I think this only happens if you panic.

this happened to me a few nights ago. i was woken up and rolled over, next thing i know i cant move and i can only move my eyes and my big toe. i fought through the paralysis and rolled over despite the whispers and moving shadows. i then had a long convesation with my brother that seemed perfectly real at the time. except we dont even live in the same house.

I once had this and I saw something that looked like a large purple furbie with a tiny horn and no ears. All it did was walk across my room and into my closet.

i get sleep paralysis a few times a month. two week ago i was sleeping and woke up with sleep paralysis, by now i'm used to it so it doesn't bother me, i just relaxed and went back to sleep, this happened about 3 times before i was able to wake up normally and move, this is the first time i was able to actually go back to sleep though which was pretty cool because my dream just kept on going not at the same spot, but a little later into the dream like the first part i was at home talking about someone i was looking for, then i was at a farm looking for the person and finally i was at some sort of racetrack waiting for the person to drive by, in the dream i knew it was the same person, i never got to see who it was but it was a pretty cool experience.

Also sleep paralysis is one of the worst things you can go through IF you don't know whats going on or aren't use to it, like the post says you will hallucinate, I've never heard anything, but i have seen things from tall shadows, huge cartoon like faces that were the size of my closet door about 6 feet tall and even seeing things from the dream in real life. i once had a nightmare that i was in my room and there was a weird projection on the wall it was one of those old 3, 2, 1 movie reel things but it was brown and creepy looking , i woke up from the dream but could still see it on my bedroom wall until i was able to move again and it just disappeared, don't try to lucid dream on your own just let it happen naturally, sometimes i can control my dreams for a few seconds before i wake up just don't force it.

I have tried this. Not on purpose. But for 3-4 nights i had the same dream. Laying in my bed, all is just so real, i didn't knew if i was asleep og awake.. suddenly my doors open and there is an Old women, with a very dark face, can only see the outline, and every night she would come a little closer to me, until the last night where she would sit on my bed and reading stuff from the bible. I wasnt able to move my body og say anything.. I searched the internet about my ****** up dreams, and found out that it was pretty normal.. I read some other stories about people with the same experinces as me, all had this old lady in them. Some times the old lady would just sit by their side, some times she would get hostile trying to beat them or kill them.. oh .. FYI, its a dream everybody will have a least one time in their life. lets just hope the old lady comes by with cookies and milk, and not a slaughter knife..

I really want to try it, I've never experienced anything more exciting than someone touching my privates with clothes on for one second. Seriously. ._.

Seriously, though, once I do this, will I be able to go to sleep at will or wait until the paralysis is gone, then...? I'm not sure what we're supposed to do the next, I'm scared of being paralyzed permanently, lol.

Never had sleep paralysis (touch wood), but lucid dreaming is the absolute bollocks!
The more it happens the more control you have.

Like recently, I've realised I'm asleep, which is terrifying cause ye realise you're prey to the darker recesses of the psyche BUT, I just slap myself repeatedly in the face (in dream) to wake myself up.


Because of this, the thought of a coma truly terrifies though..

But I do this, and I can control them (mostly)

I absolutely love lucid dreaming, it lets me play out things that dont exist in reality as if they are. (I've done a lot of **** since ive been doing this actively for a few years now)

Im not saying your wrong, because your are right, there are very bad nightmares when uoi cant control it, I've had quite a few.

I'm just saying that if you learn to control them, it's a really amazing experience

This would happen to me in school. I'd have a free period and decide to take a nap, but couldn't fall asleep, but at the same time couldn't freaking move or open my eyes regardless of how hard I tried **** sucks.

I absolutly hate sleep paralysis. Whenever i'm having a good lengthy dream, this extremely loud and terrifying noise happens whenever I walk through a door or something. I have never experienced anything more terrifying than that. I wish I could describe the noise, but I can't. It is just loud and terrifying. Just imagine walking through a door and the doorway lights up super bright, screeching a loud ass noise, and the only thing you can do is wiggle yourself awake.

whenever i get sleep paralysis, i never hallucinate. but because i sleep with my mouth closed, i imagine that i'm suffocating due to me not being able to open my mouth. i'm not sure how long it actually lasts, but it feels like hours of struggling before i have the sense to breathe out of my damn nose.

Want to know how you wake up from sleep paralysis? Think about moving your foot, just a bit and try to do it. At first, you just get a strange feeling, but the moment your foot starts to move, you will jump awake.
