By reading the comments, it kinda sounds like micro-sleep, maybe. For those who don't know, micro-sleep is sleeping with your eyes open. It used to happen to truck drivers, due to long hours driving. My father said it happened to him, he saw a baby/toddler crawling on the road.

Wiggle your toes and smaller muscles, they do not get paralyzed as effectively, soon your larger muscles will become freed an the hallucinations will end. source: personal experience. I saw a minecraft enderman walking at me, then teleport back across the room. It moved in to attack so I ended it.

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

I had a similar experience but I wasn't paralysed - I was just half asleep/half awake (maybe hypnagogia?). Anyway, I was lying in my bed and there was this woman sitting on the end of my bed and she was telling me that 'it' was coming for me, but I didn't know what it was. She told me it was coming for me soon and I didn't know what to do - I was scared so I kind of just wanted to pull the covers over my head and ignore her, but I figured if there was something coming for me, I'd at least want to see it and have warning. So I turned on the light and was looking at everything in my room, and I knew there wasn't literally a woman on my bed, but I was sure there was. And I asked her what was coming for me and she said a little girl (like in The Ring) was coming to get me (and kill me). But then I rationalised with myself and told myself that could never happen - those things don't exist - so I forced myself to tun off my light and go back to sleep. That kind of thing kept happening to me for a little while (kind of hallucinating), but never as vivid as that one.

I believe that you can hold your breath and startle yourself into waking up, but I'm not sure. Somebody try it for me

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 get this occasionally but i have never been scared. Once i could get up and could feel everything so i could walk over to my desk and touch it but my vision didnt change, that was weird. Another time i just heard very quite voices but it wasnt that bad, you can wake yourself up if you REALLY try and move. Wouldn't call it enjoyable

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.

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 had a nightmare where I was running along a white path about 3 feet wide and there was a black abyss on either side of me. At one point I looked behind me and there was a weird human spider chasing me and I just kept ******* running. Eventually the path just disappeared and I fell for like 10 minutes before waking up suddenly.

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 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..

Reminds me of a dream I had where I recalled a previous dream I had several weeks prior. So, I remembered a dream within a dream. Then, when I awoke, I wondered if I actually had that prior dream, or if I had just dreamt that I had the memory. Huh.

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 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.

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.

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 ****.
