I've experienced sleep paralysis twice, I can only vaguely remember now since it happened two years ago and I tried really hard to forget about it.
The first time I experienced it I was taking a nap, and I woke up but couldn't move. But I knew something was watching me, just staring at me from the corner of my eye.
The second time was at night and I woke up because I took the covers off of me and wanted them back. I again, could not move. I tried to get my arms to move my legs, I tried to scream, and nothing. This time I didn't open my eyes. I knew something was in there with me and I didn't want to see it; I was afraid of what it would lead

Okay, if you want to lucid dream properly there are a couple of tips and tricks that help you recognise the feeling of a lucid dream and how to induce one. Be warned though, it takes a long time and a lot of practice to really get anywhere, but it's worth it.
If you're looking online for tips and see something along the lines of "stay still and don't move"; don't do it. That leads to sleep paralysis and halucinations.
So, how to lucid dream?
My first advice would be to keep a dream diary, recording any dreams that you remember. Keep a notebook and pen next to your bed so you can record dreams straight away while they're fresh. That way, you'll notice some patterns that appear in your dreams and you can use them later as triggers.
Next, it's a good idea to get the feel of a lucid dream. What time do you normally wake up in the morning? Set your alarm for an hour before you're due to get up, and when it goes off, got right back to sleep. With luck, you'll have a dream that feels more real, looks more real, smells more real etc. ALSO and most importantly, you'll have a level of control over your dreams.
How much control you have depends on how much practice you do.
Now, once you get the feel of your dreams, you can recognise a trigger in your lucid dreams, like a red ball bouncing, a clock turning bright orange, or anything. SOmething that says "you're dreaming, but now it's time to have fun!"
Note, don't think too hard about the fact you're dreaming, or you'll wake up.
Some exercises you can do while you're lucid dreaming to help practice your control are as follows:

Jumping: if you're running in your dream, start to jump while you run. Each jump will get higher and higher until you begin to fly.
Swimming: You're in water and you go under and you can breathe
And so on.
All that remains now is practice. Sometimes your dream will start itself and you'll go along with it, sometimes you'll initiate it yourself, but it's realistic and often fun. You can beat up bullies, dance with your crush, ride dragons, whatever. BUT let me remind you, that high level stuff only comes after a lot of hard work and practice. It will be hard in the beginning, and it takes time to get it right, but keep up with it, because it's so worth it!.
One final warning. Sometimes you can have a lucid nightmare. They're scarier because they seem more real, but you can use them as a way to literally fight your fears and turn it into a hear dream. If it's too much, remember your trigger. It'll remind you you're in a dream and you'll wake up.

Any other questions, drop me a message.

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.

Got this, getting it maybe once or twice per week, goddamn annoying, I just feel the presence of someone who isnt there, and I have to use all my force to move my toes/feet to make myself wake up

OP is right, when I was in lucid dream mode, I saw like an old figure ghost that was right next to my bed. It eyes where beaming orange like the Nazi zombies from COD. And I swear he was looking right into my soul... and since nothing can't be done because I was paralyzed, it was just him and me in a starring contest...

Ok ive done a lot of lucid dreaming and I know this doesn't work. Want to know how?
You have to run checks when you're awake so you learn to differentiate between being awake and dreaming naturally. It takes a long time to do, but eventually once you are in a routine of doing this, you will do it whilst dreaming and all of a sudden 'HOLY **** IM DREAMING FAGFAERVRWDCAEW!!!!!!!!11'
Try counting the number of fingers on each hand whenever you think about lucid dreaming and actively think of whether you are dreaming or not. I recommend anyone to try for as long as they can, because it is one of the best experiences ever, effectively being able to play god with your own mind.

Sleep paralysis doesn't have to be scary. Your mind is at work here and you can control it. If you get scared, you will hallucinate scary things. The trick is to stay calm. People who say that sleep paralysis is scary are usually ignorant of this. Sleep paralysis can lead to lucid dreams if you do it right. The process outlined in this post is pretty accurate. There are a lot of other tips that will help across the internet. One of the things you may stumble upon is Out of Body Experiences, or OBEs. This is when your spirit/conscious separates from your body. It's also known as Astral Projection. Sleep paralysis precedes this phenomenon Don't consult horror movies for information on astral projection, like Insidious, because they are not accurate in the least bit. While projecting, you can go anywhere. Time and distance no longer apply since you are not of the physical. If you're interested, do some online research and keep an open mind.

Everytime I try this, I fail, because when I get really tired, my body "shakes" my leg, or my arm... I get small spasms and it ruins everything

When that happens, roll onto your side with a pillow between your legs.
That will stop the spasms, and put you further into the paralysis.

I always sleep on my back and this is quite terrifying, i try sleeping on my side but it just feels like all my organs are falling and squashing to one side.

Uncomfortable

funny, for me, I feel like all my organs are being squashed against each other because they ''spread'' when I sleep on my back, I absolutly have to sleep on my side.

I usually get this when I nap in the middle of the day. I'll wake in a half dream like state, not be able to move and feel something sitting on my bed, or coming into my room, etc. One time I thought I was at a wedding; I could hear clapping clear as day. Another time I could hear a song that was stuck in my head, literally hear it, when if I was awake I couldn't even recite the lyrics. The brain is crazy.

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.

I know EXACTLY (I can't express how accurate you described it) how this is like. Let me recount my story for you folks.

I was really tired from a long day at school today (helped move stuff and ****) and decided that naps would be a great idea. As soon as I fell asleep, I remember seeing a figure of my previous crush. She looked the same but for some reason, I was compelled to run away. When I tried to, it felt like your body was held down with bricks and it wouldn't budge. You can't really open your eyes either so it's really ******* creepy.

tl;dr, it's basically like needing to run away but your body not cooperating.

This is with your eyes open usually, not in a dream. But those 'you can't move dreams' are scary as ****.
