    I get it about every other night, it got to the point where it's just annoying and i'm not even afraid anymore..

    I've been visited by a tall shadow figure in the past and the worst was a woman in the robe came up to me and stared at me and walked away..

    Now it's more like a fight for me to wake up from a paralysis state, I don't hallucinate anymore.. Can this be a problem?

    That's so scary. something similar happened once to me. I wwoke up the morning, then went to the living room, and there everything was just fucked up so I understood I was still sleeping. So I woke up, but it was still a dream, etc. Fortunately my roommate was here and he heard me screaming so he woke me up.

    If you are aware that you are dreaming, but still able to maintain the dream-state, you are experiencing a lucid dream. This is a great gift. Lots of people practice various techniques over months and years to try and induce this type of dream. What is cool about lucid dreaming is that you can act in an individual with free will in the world your subconscious has created. When that happens you are no longer a victim of a dream state, but an active player in one.

    Thank you for explaining that! It happens to me every couple of months and I just assumed it was normal and happened to everyone, like I used to think everyone always dreamed only in color like I do.

    Oh I had this happening a few times.
    (confession mode on) Each time I was trying to find a hot guy in my dream to have sex with him... (confession mode off)

    There are those lucid dreams, but some others are really creepy, and you have only one wish : get out of here.

    I've had lucid dreams since I was a kid. Not every night, but frequently. The first time it happened I was in the middle of a nightmare and just kind of realized that I was able to turn the tables on the situation and take control of it.
    Whenever I have those dreams now, I always wake up feeling really empowered.

    Uh, there's plenty of actual science research that does a great job of explaining sleep paralysis. That book is a steaming pile of horseshit.

    OP, you may have some real medical issues that'll eventually warrant some look-see by sleep specialists. Keep an open mind about that; in the meantime enjoy your nightly visitations. Eventually you'll get a big muscular man laying on top of you and--mmmm--probing you.

    In German literature, Goethe wrote about a character named Der Erlk├Ânig who appears as shadowy and snatches dreaming children somewhat as a grim reaper. Growing up neighbor kids from South Carolina described a similar character they called a "Hank". In both stories, the child sees the approaching menace and is frozen helpless to stop it. I wouldn't make too much of it. The comments on lucid dreaming are helpful if you are able to come awake in the dream and take control of the situation. Under no circumstances should you buy into the myth that something from the supernatural is after you.

    Sleep paralysis and lucid dreaming are two different things. I've had both. I used to have sleep paralysis regularly, but only when I slept during the day. My brain would wake up, but my body would still be sleeping. I wanted to get up, but I couldn't move. Sometimes, I'd hallucinate that there was someone in the room with me, or I'd hear voices. Some people think that this is what really happens to be who think they've been abducted by aliens.

    I've had various levels of lucid dreaming. It's not as cool as it sounds. If I'm very lucid, I can control my dreams to a high degree, but when I wake up, I'm very tired because I was not completely asleep. You need to be able to fully sleep and shut your brain off to get proper rest.

    If you're feeling too sleepy during the day, then see a sleep specialist. They may be able to recommend something to help you sleep better.

    You're brain is firing off snippets from your memory during your rem cycle. In this case it's replaying images from your birth with the shadowing figures being how your brain remembers you entering the world. When you're born your eye structures are mostly developed but your brain doesn't quite know how to use them yet hence the shadowiness.

    Thanks for the reply guys! I just took a nap and it happened to me again!!

    This time I hallucinated a retarded ass zombie going up and down next to my bed, idk what I was thinking at the time.

    It's very annoying because I have to fight to wake up! If I don't fight i would most likely be chilling watching my room for hours. It feels like prison especially someone very impatient like I am.

    Before I would be scared shitless of the monsters which forced to wake me up, but now that my monsters became mentally false in my head, nothing is waking me up

    And yes I have had a sexual sleeping paralysis, someone was rimming my ads, couldn't see who, and didn't know weather to enjoy it freak out, so I freaked out lol

    I've never had sleep paralysis, but lucid dreaming in full colour is almost nightly. I was surprised when friends told me they couldn't control their dreams and re-engineer the world at will. It's kind of like being a wizard in Harry Potter, except no wand required.

    I have sleep paralysis pretty often, just a horrible feeling to be awake, and you cant open your eyes or move your body and you are consciously fighting to move something in your body to wake up and open your eyes.

    lot of times you feel like there is this pressure of someone in the room with you, usually a malevolent presence, someone sitting on your chest or on the edge of the bed...if you havent had this dont wish for it

    My first experience was scary as fuuuck, since I didn't know what was happening and hadn't been aware of what sleep paralysis was yet. It was the typical experience - the dreaded feeling, unable to move, seeing a shadowy torso figure hovering, etc.

    The latest one, which happened years ago, was much more different than what I've read with other people's experiences. I may have been asleep for about 2 hrs when all of a sudden, I woke up with the feeling of being watched. The only light I had in my room was from the moonlight but it was still quite dark. I turned to my side and noticed this massive shadowy "mist", no shape in particular, about 2 ft away, and I could tell that it was fixated on me (just that feeling when you know that it's for "you") and it started to inch closer.

    Mind fucked, I quickly jumped out of bed and then felt this tremendous pressure on my shoulders, causing me to go on all fours to the floor - tried to get up but couldn't. I'm still looking at the dark mist as I'm crawling towards the light switch across the room. This dreadful feeling felt like it was getting more and more intense. When I finally got to the light switch, I yelled and flipped the lights on and bam, there was light and there was this eerily silence. I just sat there thinking, *what the hell just happened?* and was obviously still freaked out.

    I was sober before going to bed, not stressed out or anything, just a normal night so am still wondering what I had experienced. Got the slight chills just typing all this out.

    * if any typing errors/auto-corrects, ignore it - typing on my phone here icon_smile.gif

    I get those when I go to sleep late....

    Here's a trick that worked for me,

    When it happens again, try stop breathing, in a little bit you'll choke yourself out from it (since it's impossible choke oneself to death)

    The thing is how do you explain the eyewitness accounts of people not suffering from sleep paralysis actually seeing something in the room? I remember one story took place in a military dorm where one guy kept on having these visitation from something evil like you Buppi. A friend of his a few beds away decided to stay up and watch him as he slept. Hours later he claimed he saw this dark figure walk across the room and lean over the bed of his friend. Another was a man and wife with the man suffering from what they thought was an explainable case of sleep paralysis. One night the wife claimed she saw this "thing" on the chest of her husband afte coming back from the bathroom and screamed.

    Do you believe eyewitness accounts? Because scientists don't.

    I'm open to anything, Scientist don't believe in a "soul" either, think they have the only answers in this world?
