I'm Stuck, I Can't Move, All I Can Do Is Make A Soft Noise

by Lanera Brown
(Philadelphia)

I'm presently twenty years of age and since as far back as I can remember whenever I would wake up from a good night's rest and fall back to sleep I would get stuck and not be able to move. I feel as if I am awake and can see everything but can't move any part of my body, just my eyes. I can't scream or talk all I can do is make a soft noise.

I hate the feeling so much. I try to pray to myself during these times and sometimes that works but not often. The only way I can come out of this is if I relax and lye there and after a while I'm able to kick which is the only way I can get up which is hard when I feel as if I can't move.

I have waken up and scared people in the room with me by kicking the wall or jumping up. Once a cousin of mine was in the bed with me and she heard me make the noise and woke me up. This was the best moment I've ever had during one of these times. Now she knows if she ever hears me doing that, to awake me.

I used to feel like I'm awake because there were times when I would ask the people who were in the room with me if they did certain things and I was correct. But recently I discovered sometimes I'm dreaming because I haven't been correct lately. It's the scariest feeling in the world.



Kevin: Hey Lanera, thanks for sharing this. Sleep paralysis can be incredibly crazy and frightening, but if you keep learning about it you'll be able to understand it better, and that can help a lot. In fact, this book by a man who's studied and experienced sleep paralysis for almost two decades, is full of strategies and stories about taking control of these episodes, using them as good experiences rather than very negative ones. I hope it helps.

All the best,
Kevin

THIS IS IMPORTANT
by: Anonymous

it is actually the paranormal as when i was around ten my brother did alot of witch craft and ever since then i have always been frozenen bed and can't move i asked my brother what it was and he tried to change the subject but one night when me and my bro were home alone he went to bed then i heard some wird noises and went to my brothers room and saw his face with terror then he looked like in pain but he managed to call out to the moon goddess, (trust me i now believe in the gods and stuff now cause of this)he told me what it was and how to overcome it, its from a ghost trying to possess you and if you ever have a fit after BLESS YOUR HOUSE as it is actually powerfull enough to control you. to prevent this is to pretend that nothing is there if you hear tapping just calm down and DONT BE SCARED THE SPIRIT WILL JUST GET STRONGER they feed off of negative energy which is anger depression and other emotions like those always be happy

Stuck in your sleep?
by: Anonymous

I don't know if you ever noticed but you can move your neck. What you do is, move your face to your chest and bite. Of course you will not bite yourself but you will bite the entity that is doing this to you. You will actually feel it unravel and leave you only to never return. It worked for me and I have been free from it ever since. Try it and let me know.

ya its not fun
by: Anonymous

ya this sucks I hate it to, sometimes I'm like half awake and or asleep don't really know and I get awaken by a loud growl it doesn't really happen anymore but that was worse than when I get stuck sleeping and can't move. I experimented and realized alcohol before bed was making me freeze awake stuck a lot, and sometimes I would get that feeling in short dreams that were mildly frightening. Then I just wake up dehydrated. It hasn't been happening lately as I drink a lot of water when I'm done drinking, and It doesn't happen at all if I don't drink so that is good.

It happened a lot when I used my temperpedic because that bed traps heat like no other and makes you feel gross so I think it only happens when I am uncomfortable for some reason.

It doesnt stop NEW
by: Anonymous

this has been happening to me for a couple of years now. Im layin on my bed watchin tv and out of no where i feel as if someone or something is on my back and not allowing me to move and the more negative i think the more tight my body gets. But its the scariest feeling ever. In order for me to get away from this i start breathing in and out deeply and prayin at the same time and i break loose. But there is times that i will break loose and then it will happen again in the same night sometimes about 3 times in one night. Need some help im tired of this occuring.

i have this same problem NEW
by: Anonymous

i have had this same problem for over a year now happens quite often to the point where i aint really scared of it no more i just hate it coz it messes my sleep up -.-. let me tell you what this really is. when this happens dont you feel the shivers and feel cold? can you feel the coldness moving around you? this is not a problem that is caused by your body. its called a JINN they are unseen or as you would call them ghosts but they can show themselves if they want. i was really afraid of it at first but iv started practising my religion more (islam) and praying and now when they come all i do is ask god for help and they let go of me immediatly.

Its a Sleep Disorder, not Religion Disorder NEW
by: Jason Pugh

I do not feel cold, or shiver or see ghosts or jinn or anything like that. it is a SLEEPING DISORDER not a lack of religion. I can wake myself up sometimes by shaking my feet back and forth at the ankles. But yes, i too can see anything thats happening in the room, can tell you what songs were on the radio, or what conversation was taking place. i fall asleep with my eyes open sometimes, i know i can see, and hear. just not move. The weight you feel on your chest is not a weight, ALL your muscles are relaxing. Its your body going to sleep. meaning, your breath is slowing down, your heartbeat slows down etc.. I posted my story on here too. "Am i dying in my sleep", were all one in the same with this Medical condition, NOT Religion condition..

Weird happenings NEW
by: Anonymous

Last night it happened again, I felt awake but unsure if I really was or not. I've been having this issue since I was younger I'm now 23. It happens when im on my back and suddenly my eyes are open and I try to scream but can't, I called out to my roommate to help me but she didn't hear me. I asked her this morning and she said she didn't hear a thing. It's scary when I can't move or turn my neck all I can do is just lie there until it subsides and I fall into a deep sleep.

Methods and Reflecting NEW
by: Tim

This happens to me a lot. The more I try and move the harder it is for me to breathe and always feel like someone or something is coming after me and i dont have enough time to snap out. Panic is always the first reaction when I go through this. But then I control my breathing as much as i can while in this state. This way I could get enough concentration to perform a snap or a "kick" (much like they do in Inception) to wake me up. I used to try and whisper or murmur out, but it's not very affective as people often see people talk in their sleep. The first thing that people react to when I go through this is they say I breathe like Im preparing for a run. My best suggestion is when this happens next.. find out what time it happened, remember the time u slept, and try and study a pattern . Mine often came from drinking late at night and crashing after a long long week. This is the same reason I dont drink much anymore. Once you notice a pattern, try and change that thing you know is unhealthy out of that and chances are this is what the issue is. Usually people that i know that go through this are athletes, artists, etc during the weekdays and professional binge drinkers on the weekends.. i hope you find your root for this. It's not the best feeling in the world I know but I've been having these since I was a teenager and I've learned to build my own methods of fighting it.

Hy! I'm lora, I'm almost 16 and it happen to me too, since I'm at junior high. It was the worst feeling ever. Everytime I took a nap it always happened, I'm stuck at my bed an ant breath or move, I try to wake up but it was the hardest, the worst part is that after I awaken I felt so sleepy than ever, and then suddenly I can't move again then I realIze that I've already fallen asleep again, it scared me. Not just that, everytime it happened I always knew that I was asleep but I can't see and hear everything, well not always, but it terrified me

windy expierience NEW
by: aguilera8

Im 17 and pregnant andTwo nights ago I woke up at 3 in the morning for no reason. as soon as I closed my eyes I felt the strongest wind as if I was in front of a giant fan and as soon as I started to panic I tried to get up but couldn't move a muscle or scream and my eyes went to the back of my head and it felt like I was having a seizure. I'm terrifed to even take a nap now and I want to know if this is normal or not. I think it was a spirit or something evil but my parents think it was just a bad dream. Please reply if u know! All I want it answers and to kno if I need to speak to a priest or not.

Scared NEW
by: Blah

Happens to me as well. Has been for years. It wouldnt be as bad if every time it happened it was somewhere else besides my bedroom. But every single time I "dream" that I am lying in my bed, I see shadows, I feel some presence, sometime I feel weight on me, sometime I fight it and fall off my bed onto the floor. That is what scares me the most. If i dreamt I was outside, anywhere, but it is at home everytime, which makes me wonder if it was a dream at all. I used to work night shifts and sleeping during the day. I remember sleeping in the bed and feeling someone lye down next to me, I assumed my bf came home for lunch to take a nap. However, he said he did not come home for lunch. Basically I drove myself to a point to where i'm terrified of darkness and falling asleep now, I'll stay up till I cant function anymore and go to sleep after the sun comes up. I went to the doctor telling her i cant sleep at night and sleep till noon or later, she sarcastically asked me I have tried waking up at 7am like normal people do, which now also made me selfconsious about bringing up the problem. She gave me anxiety meds which did absolutely nothing, i took them for a week, threw away the rest and never took them since. I have actually found that drinking myself to sleep eases the fear, but I cant make myself drink every night. Its depressing.

just happened today for the first time NEW
by: Anonymous

So I'm lying in bed right arm fully extened and left arm across my chest and legs straight out. I start getting these feelings that I can't move and pressure on my right arm like someones next to me sleeping on it. At first I thought it was my brother so I try to say his name to move and why isnt he in school then I realized I can't move my neck to see who it is. So I start to panic then the "person" moved and the pressure is lifted. It starts walking towards the door which is right in front of me but I don't see anything but I hear the foot step by the way the house is old so cricky floors. He walks and then he goes into the hallway but without opening the door but I hear it walking away then I move again. Weird I must say I heard the garbage truck passing children going to school and see the sunshine through my window. I started to think paranormal but its not and its a disorder. I'm calm and happy to know what it is thank you for posting.

Not a once in a while thing... or even just once a night NEW
by: Anonymous

I keep reading people saying that you canmove your neck and certain things to do to snap out of it but in my case i cant move anything. When i try to close my eyes and wait for it to pass all the noises just get louder and i feel the hold on me is stronger. Its been happening a long time and it seems lately ive tried fightinf it more and its just been happening more. This happends to me muliple times throughout the day abd night now..Wether i rest my head or are sitting up i can feel it like a wave course through my body into my head and i get light headed. For the last few weeks it happends so many times within 10-15 minutes that i get horrible headaches im dozzy and almost feel drunk.

Weight holding me down NEW
by: Anonymous

I had this 2 nights ago. I was dreaming I was in bed but I truly felt weight on top of me. I tried to call out for help but I could not move or yell. I woke up with my husband shaking me, I had been doing a soft moaning, almost like a soft cry. Never had this before and hope I never have it again - it was very unnerving!

A Little Crazy NEW
by: Anonymous

I find this happens to me a lot; however, sometimes it's because I'm dreaming, while sometimes I know I'm awake and experiencing sleep paralysis. Lately it's been especially strange because I've been experiencing episodes where I'm laying in bed and fall asleep, but dream I'm falling into a sleep paralysis. Some of these times I know I'm dreaming and I'm aware during the dream that it is such, So I just have to struggle as if it were a real episode until I wake up. The problem is it seems like it has been every time I fall asleep lately. It's a little unnerving because my entire life I've never had a dream where I was aware it was a dream before, but now I'll find myself in a strange place struggling to move when I know I was just in my bed so it's a tip off that it's a dream, but my entire life I've had ridiculous dreams that seemed perfectly plausible while dreaming. I guess lately it's a little hard to keep track of reality when I'm first waking up.

I just woke up in tears very frightened and confused.., NEW
by: Anonymous

I just woke up in tears very frightened and confused. I went to sleep at about 7PM and by 1AM, I felt a heavy weight on my back. I was sleeping on my right side facing my husband and some invisible person was clinging on to my back, hanging on for dear life. I mumbled and prayed to no avail. My entire body was paralyzed, couldn't move a thing. About five minutes later, I succeeded to let out a blood cuddling scream and my husband woke me up. He was sleeping right next to me but didn't hear any thing until I screamed! I'm so upset and terrified to go back to sleep. Happened a couple of times about two years ago but nothing of this magnitude. Simply petrified...

This used to happen to me. Hasn't in years, I'm currently 25. But when it did, the way I'd wake up is close my eyes really tight and hard. When I'd open them slowly it would be me opening them awake. I can use this technique anytime I'm having a nightmare or anything else. But I learned it from what you're experiencing. Give it a shot.

waking up but not really NEW
by: Anonymous

I also have experienced it..

Im awake can hear people around me but i cant move.. Im screaming the hell out of me but there is no sound.

Its when you're at this state you feel so helpless. You dont know how long are you going to be like that or if you'll ever wake up or die if you stop trying waking up yourself.

I sometimes experienced i have already woke up from it. Its that you are already walking and talking but afterwards youreback in youre bed struggling again to wake up.. Its just so strange

I noticed that it just happens to me when i sleep at noon or when its really a hot weather..

I manage to wake up my self by giving mu best to move my right foot..

Its so exhausting and when you finally woke up you have that weird feeling.. I dont know.

I am a victim too NEW
by: Anonymous

It also happened to me this afternoon and it happens almost evrytime i sleep no matter the time of the day. Normally when it happens I feel this sudden atiffness through out my whole body and it hurts. I also see people that are not there! Like today I saw my sister walk into the room that I fell asleep in. At first I heard the footsteps then i got scared and the stiffness got worse and more painfull. then she walked into the room and I started breathing heavily so she can see that I am stuck in my sleep but she wasnt actually there! I broke out of it by wiggling my toes but that felt like forever. sometimes i feel it as it is about to come over me and make sudden movements then it goes away< sometimes im just not that quick. This has been bothering me for about 3 years now and I would rily like for it to stop. If there is an answer or some sort of treatment or cure for this< the people who have it should please share with us because I end up not being able to sleep at all because of this and I always thought it happens to me only

thought it was just me NEW
by: Miriam

This happens to me too often. And every time it happens It scares the shit out of me. I feel that something really heavy from top of me. The more i try to move the hard it gets to move .My eyes are wide open. I feel like I can't breath . I've try to scream or make noise so my boyfriend could hear. But nothing comes out. I've tried to move to my hand to pinc him but I can't move at all.About to 2weeks ago he told he got up to use the restroom. When he came back he told me he . I was gasping for air but my eyes were open. He said he called out my name but I didn't respond. Into he shook me I woke up. And I remember him calling my name but I couldn't say anything or move .

I've had this way to many times. NEW
by: Zachary Johnson-Yeates

Yes. Some of you can't move, you can see about 80% right? You hearing is good for you can hear the tv or others well you can also barley move. I have many of these dreams. Sometime I hear a person screaming really loud. A devil-like soul hurting scream. But I ignore those. Also many of you mayfeel actual pain. They say you don't feel pain in dreams. Well guess what? This isn't a dream.. I know. Then you "wake up" and have a weird energetic and a light headache feeling but just barely there. Yep. I know. Haha these last for only mins but seem to last hours. Many times you wake up unusually hot. Yes. I've learned after dozens of these ways to not have them. Its to get on a sleeping schedual. You know. Sleep at 10 p.m. wake up at 7 a.m and wakeing up is inportant to not hit the snooze. Just start your day. If you da that I promise you won't have any more because your body will adapt and get used to it. There for the switch in your head eliminates the "inbetween" stage. Either off or on. Hope this helped :) for any info on sleeping, lusic, astro projection, or just life help. Message me on facebook. Zachary Johnson Yeates

Shadows of Darkness NEW
by: Ashlyn

If you know me, I NEVER sleep with the door closed and the lights out. I did this once since I fell asleep in the day time. I woke up at night, but was too tired to get up and open the door. BIG MISTAKE! I fell asleep and woke up staring at the door... There was a shadow. It was groaning and getting closer, mind you, the door is 5 feet from my pillow, TOPS! I was crying but couldn't move or scream. I pit my lip so hard it bled and woke up with blood on my lips. I shot out of bed and opened the door. Last time I fall asleep with the door closed and no lights.. even in the daytime....

Rebuking in the name of Jesus NEW
by: Anonymous

This happened to me for the first time yesterday. I was napping and it sounded as though someone walked through my bedroom, the doors were closed and no one else was home because my husband was at work and my children were at school. It came closer and the hair on the back of my neck stood up. I couldnt move, all I could do was open my eyes and moan. I felt as though something was getting ready to rip the flesh off of my back and I immediatly started praying to God. I am a very religious person and I believe in angels and demons. I was scared of this. I kept rebuking it and commanding it to go in the name of Jesus. There is power in the name of Jesus. I said it maybe 4 times and at about the second time I thought this isnt going to work because I cant actually speak. It did work. God saved me from whatever it was. I have, in the past, annointed my home and believe in the power of annointing but I know that the power is of/from God. I still dont know what God was trying to show me but I know in time I will have clarity about it. My suggestion to all who have experienced this is to rebuke it in the name of Jesus and try to find out why God is allowing this, why He is trying to get your attention.

Anxiety and Panic Attacks NEW
by: Tonya

So basically this happens to me less often than it used it to. It started when i was a child, probably around the time my parents got divorced. It took a while for me to figure out what was happening because i wouldn't ask anyone about it. anyways, when i finally figured it out it made sense. Anxiety attacks. They happen to most people who have anxiety when they are awake, but they can happen when you are asleep too. i believe these during sleep anxiety attacks could also be defined as night terrors.
now, some of you have stated praying helps (sometimes) this can be for a couple of reasons (so all of you skeptics/non-believes and those who hold faith continue to reading) praying is one of two things, something that works supernaturally because there really is a god, or something that works subconsciously because it calms you.
trying to wait for it to pass can work because anxiety usually (and i mean USUALLY) passes once you can calm yourself down.

Another victim NEW
by: Anonymous

This happens to me occasionally, I wake and can't move my body at all! I try to call for help but nothing comes out, the more I try to move the harder it gets and the more I panic! I would try to lay still for a couple seconds and then attempt to move again and sometimes it works but others it doesn't and I fight it until I fall asleep! This morning however it happened a good few times! Sometimes its really frightening and other times I can just relax and fall back to sleep. I usually stay at my boyfirends house but it only happens in my bedroom. I'm terrified to go to sleep in my house because I think there's a ghost in my room watching me but my sister insists I'm being stupid. I have read that it isn't paranormal but part of me feels like its a spirit trying to possess me

the witch riding your back NEW
by: dru

I'm 27 now but this has been happening to me every since I was in my teens. Some say its a witch riding on you and som refer 2 it as the monkey on your back. I remember one time I was falling asleep as I was listening to some music and I started to doze off and as soon as I dozed off I heard like like a weird voice similiar to a voice as if it was chopped and screwed, and it felt I was just helpless and paralized and this lasted for about 10 seconds but I managed to shake myself out of it... but now I jus say the lord's prayer, that always works for me... or sometimes I jus fight my way out.. I'm not afaid of that crap anymore

Its a demon/ghost NEW
by: Anonymous

The thing is dark and heavy. It immobolises you. You can't talk or move. Its a spirit. The thing fades any time you mention Jesus even in your mind cause your mouth is held. Pray before going to bed it has worked for me. Also if it happens don't be afraid to rebuke it openly and tell it you know what it is. Demons hear.

Shivers and Flashes NEW
by: Jon

Hi, It is currently 3:45am and I am new here. I have recently been having the same problems as many of these people. When I awoke, I could not move around nor yelp for attention. I am growing weary of this. I hear something high pitch usually when I awake scared or having an extremely vivid dream. I have only slept for about an hour and I have been up for about 15min and i am still have shivers--scratch that, it just went away(I will keep a table of how long these occur). I will post more about this later.

sp is my worst fear NEW

I get sp alot but its weird because the demons or spirits try to have sex with me but i cant move or scream and they are always touching me and sticking there dirty toungs in my ears and mouth. Very scary and annoying it takes soo much energy to actually make your self wake up from sp. But the only thing that really works is praying to god.

u can control it NEW
by: Anonymous

Hey guys, well ive just been readinig all your comments and i just feel glad, that im not the only one that has experienced this. Anyway, god forbid this hasnt happend to me for a while, but when it did it used to happen every week on a specific day,..And went on for years, so you can imagine i got very used to it, and tried all different things to stop it happening. It even got to a point were i tried not to fall asleep but strangely something kind of forces you to! So, im a musliim although i dont pray 5times etc.. While having these dreams i used to constantly say a prayer, but like someone mensioned earlier it doesnt always work. So the next time it happend, i thought to myself, right evrytime this happens im laying on my be facing upwards, on my back basicaly.. And it feels like someones on top, not letting me go, after that i debided to laye on my side.. I xo it can be difeictlt at times because u just drift off, but it helped me. Might help you, and then i was told that islamicaly you are meant to sleep on your right. That explained alot! Löl, al the best x

by: Chasity

I have actually have had the same experiences. The Shadows, waking like someone is lying on you, you scream and no one can hear you. This actually started happening when I started having children and did not have it before. I suspect the my kids father had some like a curse on him or something. I used to wake up and see the whole bedroom. Sometimes I would see people who had red eyes. But in most cases it was always the same falling asleep and seeing the room around me. Some years passed and I had got into church and I back slid. I had let my children father's lived with me for a while. What a big mistake! I started seeing things. The first I saw was a shadow of a man and a dog. (Which is the devil) When I would lay on the bed where he was. I would feel like a heavy sleep come over me as if being possessed. I told him he needs to go to church or something or start believing in God. Well, he did not listened to me and we would argue a lot because of it. I then ordered him to leave. Well that did not end well because when he did he left those demons behind. Yes, they are demons and whats crazy is that they are trying to seek out your souls. It was worse for me because I was already spiritual. I believe that someone put a curse on him. You have to be very careful who you join yourself too. This is not a sleeping disorder . Your actually waking up in a spirit world. I would suggest changing your life and getting right with God and have someone who is knowledgeable in the word of God pray for you. And often read a bible to become knowledgeable in the word of God as well if you start going to church. My life has not been the same since.

I told my mom and she said that on Montel. the guest speaker Silvia Brown. said it was your "Soul" leaving your body. n that feeling you get when you cant move, speak,and only move your eyes is because your "soul" is going back into your body.. the reasong why your "soul" leaves your body is that it wants to explore... soo. idk if to believe this .but it really scared me.>.<

I'm 24 now has been happening since my teens the first time it was a witch floating towards me choking me. I could not move that was the last of the witch. But dogs came so know when it happens I can't move scream talk but like most I can kick but I.don't have to let me tell you why all I say is its not real these dogs are growling at the foot of my bed my gf says pray the same amount of time it will take to pray they leave from me saying its not real I also can make them come on command. Yes I can make these symptoms that we all fear in a way come so I'm sorta not as scares anymore really not scared at all just kind of annoying now that I'm 24 like I'm trying to sleep here but like yesterday I was talking to her about it hasn't happened in about 2 months but I made it happen last night just to see if I could all I had to do was lay on back its like your body wanta to sleep but u just not ready then I think about the dogs and they come right growling and running use to scare the shit out of me scares.me more talking about it then actually doing I feel for all of you I hope my method of just saying its not real a coupler times work but you must believe it truly I wish I had a 100% method for those who really get freaked out but trust me. It's nothing to fear I hang my feet off the bed on purpose just to have the dogs growling at them but they don't touch them

I call them night terrors NEW
by: Baggy

I didn't realise this was so common, I'm 44 now and have had many of these over the years. Mine start of with a heavy oppressive feeling, this part is harder to explain even though the room is dark it gets even darker then I get the weight on my chest and can't move, I'm trying to shout out nod scream but can't my breathing feels loud and heavy and is a struggle. It's scary as hell, I try to calm myself and make myself relax, I sometimes speak to it and say 'I'm too tired, go way' would you believe this has actually worked, catch it quick though before it REALLy kicks in and gets a hold. I've had it with my hubby lying next to me..he says I don't move to make a sound! My mum had this too, I remember her telling me about a similar dream where she was trying to kick, scream but no one came to help her, Dad was lying next to her at the time. At least now I know what it is now

all is well NEW

kevin,

down here in the south we call that , "the witch on your back". i know exactly the feeling, it's awful. i'm 43 now and sometimes still have the experience. it is associated typically with males in their early 20's. believe it or not the largest segment of the worlds population that has the highest rate of this condition is Japanese college students. there is a direct correlation to stress according to some experts.

i honestly think it is a left over evolutionary trait that our ancestors needed when first waking up. in order to keep our bodies still so as to appear dead to any lurking predators...similar to a fainting goat. and once it was determined that it was safe to move, they could slowly awake.

the funny thing is that when it happens to me, i know it's happening so i have learned to chill and just wait until my body decides to cooperate with my mind.

THIS HAPPENS TO ME A LOT NEW

That happened to me, when i went to sleep tired, after a few hours, my eyes, were so heavy, and it opened, i want to close it down, but i saw a man in white, and told me repeatedly "just sleep" i panicked, i cant move my body, my body is numb, and all i want to do is scream, but i cant. I struggled, and find myself as if i broke free and stood up touching the floor, but in reality i was there in the bed still struggling, i repeated it until i can move freely. i was scared.

This has only happened to me twice. Both times it felt like I was stuck in my dream but I could see my bedroom it just looked distorted and no matter how hard I tried I could not move. There was also always a figure in the corner of my room I am pretty sure it was a man but it was scary, not a friendly.

I rarely go into sleep where I don't hear everything. I wake fully can't move. Have to relax and try to fall back into light sleep. Deep sleep brings terrible dreams that scare people around me. Say look like convulsing. Sometimes find self in another room terrified. Can hear see everything can't move. Haven't slept deep in month.

Sleep disorder NEW
by: Anonymous

It has something to do with your brain growing. Like most muscles, after a workout, they expand in size while your resting. This should subside by the time you reach your early 30's. The neurons in your brain will make most of there permanent connections by this time and you will begin to sleep a solid eight hours without interruptions.

Not alone 2 NEW
by: Anonymous

Well it does have to do with stress yes. I have insomnia for most part and nerve damage in my spinal cord and main nerves that come off. Spine fused 4 levels and 3 artificial disc. Scoliosis as well. My nerves just don't function properly awake or asleep. Causing pain and paralysis causing sleep deprivation hence causing the panic episodes when wake and can't move. Lack of sleep can eventually tear our brain down. When I say lack of sleep I am talking maximum sleep 2 hours nite interrupted. No sleep rest of day. This is year 2 for me. Last bout was worse over a month. Finally slept 4 hours no interruptions heard nothing.

My experience NEW
by: Lee

It happened last night. I was trying to sleep then suddenly, I can no longer move. My back hurts and it’s unexplainable. It creeps into my spine. Then even if my eyes are closed, I can still see different colours, sometimes even people. I can’t move my neck or any part of my body except for my fingers which still needs a lot of effort in order to move. It is really a frightening experience. It started 5 years ago but it doesn’t happen frequently. The first time (I think) was the time when I was 12, in that dream there was a blonde doll singing then suddenly I was being forced to sing as well. There is no sound coming out of my mouth but there is music or something that I was singing. To wake up, I pray and try to move my fingers. Thank God it’s still working but sometimes it’s difficult to do. Back then, I read about sleep paralysis and thought that that might be my problem. That’s why, one time when it happened again, I tried to relax, but I can’t. It’s really terrifying. I’m scared that I might wake up no more. I hope this happening stop. I don’t want to experience it again.

Over thinking? NEW
by: Anonymous

I'm 18 years old, I've had this happen once before. I couldn't move, talk or anything. I felt like there was a evil spirit holding me down. Mentally I was screaming for my boyfriend to wake me up, but I couldn't get anything out. Finally I got myself to wake up almost gasping for air cause I was so terrified. Then about an hour ago, it happened again. I have anxiety, and cannot watch scary movies. Of course I watched one a few nights ago, and my biggest fear is being taken over by a demon. I kept seeing this face in my dream that was destorted and I just tried and tried waking myself up. Trying to pray. I don't know if this is demonic or I'm just over thinking about that movie and letting it get to me. It was the scariest thing I've ever had happen to me.

Astral Projection NEW
by: Dyl

This happens occasionaly to me it use to frighten me. I once had a dream someone was pushing down on my forehead making me paralyzed, when I woke up it still felt that way. What made this time different was that my eyes were open while I couldn't move. There was like a black shadow/mist hovering above me. When I broke free it looked like it hit the wall and went along the wall and out the window. Ive read that this might actually be the beginning stages of astral travel. The next time it happened I tried to get up and walk around. I managed to fall next to my bed. Then the though of monster under the bed made me panic and I woke up where I fell asleep. In the stuff I read it said that fear is the only thing stopping us from leaving our bodies and reaching limitless potential. Its also very dark near u when it starts, apparently if u can get away from ur body it start to become brighter

Im commenting here as I just 5 mins ago had a night terror, I don't have them often but when I do- they all seem to disable me in the same way!! I always am dreaming that I have been to sleep & something or mainly someone has woken me. This person is someone I am scared of, I cant open my eyes as they are too heavy and my legs won't work, my voice is really soft and my arms are very jelly like, its like my body is still asleep but my mind isn't & I know im in trouble but theres nothing I can do. I generally wake seconds later feeling very disorientated and Sluggish !!
Everytime I have this dream, it will be in the exact place I have fallen asleep, so if its my bedroom, I dream that I have woken to someone in there, or if I've fallen asleep on the couch I dream I have woken to someone there!! This happens a couple of times a month!! There surely must be a reason to this....

you all are wrong. NEW
by: Anonymous

i am sorry to say but everyone who is saying its "ghosts" or "paranormal" activity is wrong. If you actually researched what it is, its this. When your body falls asleep, your brain releases a hormone that goes through your muscles to put them to sleep. It basically paralyzes you. If your the type of person who dreams when having naps, then that means your body skips the non REM sleep and immediately goes to REM sleep to make you dream. When this happens and you wake up, the hormones are still in your system so the affects of them are still there but will only last a short while. so while your brain is awake, your body is basically still asleep. its nothing paranormal or something actually wrong with you. its perfectly normal. A quick overview - when you sleep, your brain releases hormones to make your body sleep. You wake up during REM and your body is still asleep. Goodbye.

Nothing Supernatural About It NEW
by: GodChaser

Most of us who experience this phenomenon probably have very active imaginations. I'm not saying this is all in our heads. I am saying we dream very vivid dreams - something I have done my whole life, and I am 44. If you research sleep and dreams, you will find that there is a certain amount of paralysis that occurs during sleep to keep you from injuring yourself while you're dreaming. What we are most likely experiencing is simply a dream that seems very real because of our active imagination, but we are not deep enough in our sleep that we are oblivious to our surroundings. Therefore, we are conscious enough to realize we are (naturally) paralyzed, but we are asleep enough that we do not realize we are sleeping. It is all a natural occurence - nothing supernatural.

Scary NEW

It is called Sleep Paralysis, half awake and half asleep.... well u can look up sleep paralysis and read all about it, but if u do have this alot i will say that isn't a good idea... it could make it even scarier..

I have had this 2 times, when i was stressed after school and fell aslepp.

If u have felt that someone is standing behind you, like i felt and comes closer, closer and then it stabbes you in the chest(and hurts like hell) the only thing you can do is to fight it with your mind.
Believe that you are strong enaugh to wake up!

I hope no one felt it as strong as i did!..

very scary thing to experience NEW
by: Pinay

first of all im glad that im not the only one who experienced this, but of course I feel sad for us guys cause I know how frightening and crazy it is.. 1st time I experienced this, Is I really cant move, but I can see everything and hear everything .. I saw someone standing on my door, and I can see his eyes is red and I can hear him laughing at me , I panic a lot and it tears me.. but when I closed my eyes and relax I can finally move .. and I believe aying and praying to God will help ..

I don't know why we experienced this kind of shit, but I will always pray for us ..

Strange NEW
by: Steven D

I have had this happen to me at least 50 times in my life from child hood all the way until now. I am currently 25 and have had my share of problems.. Drug addiction, depression, insomnia, anxiety among others. But when thus happens to me I feel like I am tied to my bed on my back and I hear voices almost calling to me, I also deer shadows and weird figures. Thus happened 2 nights ago actually and all I could see was a shadow figure in my doorway that looked like a dog and it kept running by, I even heard a chain jingling as if a dog was actually running around. But at the same time my mind and buddy are fighting it so hard that my whole body is seizing even my head shaking back and forth and when I awake I always wonder if I was actually having a seizure in my sleep. Just thought I would share my experience, but it definitely seems very demonic.

It use to happen to me but I've grown out of it a long time ago. I don't know what it was but I'm sure it's not a demon!! It would happen to me after I had a good night sleep and try to take a nap before bed time. You will grow out of it. Don't be afraid.

thanks to Priest Andrew NEW

I’ve made a few mistakes in my relationship, but this time I thought ‘she is never going to take me back now - I have really done it this time’. I tried calling her, apologizing and everything else I could think of. I finally came across priestandrew91@yahoo.com and found out how to wipe the slate clean with her so we could start again. It worked and now we are back together. Thank you for Breakup Reversed!

This is not a Disorder or Religious thing! NEW
by: Anonymous

This is perfectly normal, because when you sleep you dream and sometimes you have lucid dreams(being able to know you're dreaming in your sleep)which can often cause your brain to think you're awake. You wake up, you can't move and sometimes you see a black figure approaching you. All you can do is go to sleep, knowing this is perfectly normal. P.S go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYSX51xBkos for more information.

it used to happen to me NEW
by: Anonymous

its been 2 years since the last experience . i was suffering with these moments often .i felt frozen , could hear and see ,couldnt talk ,coudnt move ,and felt a strong force pushing me down . always in my room on my bed? it scared me alot. my boyfriend was there and i had warned him of this.when it happened i tried to scream out and was able to manage a soft scream and move my hands infront of my face using my full strength . he said he could not hear me at all but said that he did see my hands move?? i also struggled to breath.Things i feel contributed to this was: i had depression, was mentally weak.
Eventually,i ended up taking drugs,was set up by the boyfriend and sent to jail as a result of something i didnt have anything to do with.(surrounded by evil)lost my kids and life a total mess. definately happens when i was vulnerable and was being victimised in life.happened 2-3 times a day . hasnt happened since i have recovered from depression , drugs , and the effects of the negative experiences .GOD has given me strength, there fore i feel strongly it was something evil. not meaning the person is evil , rather they are being taken advantage of by the evil . i suggest doing all you can rise above any negativity. if there are things bothering you , adress it , you cant ignore it . you will find this will help you to process the issue and move on from it .If you hold onto things eventually you will become weakened,vulnerable and can become victim to this kind of thing.

Thank You NEW
by: Vince

I have been struggling with this for over a year now and I just found this tonight. I thought I had a brain tumor or I was developing a disorder. I have such a sigh of relief tonight because of this. I always look for answers after they happen and I always go to bed nervous. Not tonight. The following is a note I wrote a couple months ago about my SP;

Tonight I had the most intense night paralysis I've ever had. Even before going to sleep I knew something didn't feel right in my head. Every time I would start to drift off to sleep I would snap myself back awake because of an uncomfortable feeling in my head. Once I just accepted it and left for dream land it seemed like only minutes had gone by before I felt an intense surge of brain activity going off like an alarm in my head. All I could make of it was that I was being pulled off of my bed toward the door and I kept gripping my sheets while resisting. Typically this only happens in one rush but I got three significant rushes tonight. By the middle of the third one I was grasping for my phone to call Andi. When these happen I always try to keep wiggling my toes and fingers to regain feeling in my limbs, all while maintaining my breath. Sometimes I will lose my breath and stop breathing all together but for some reason I felt more prepared tonight because of some of the indicators I was getting prior to falling in. When I woke up I wasn't panicked like I usually am. Often times I wake up thinking of evil spirits or ghosts but tonight I just woke up and started researching. I don't think there is some other being coming after me. I don't really know what's going on. I read some articles and it seems like this is a somewhat common occurrence and I found some refuge in the comment sections of a couple websites. This hasn't happened in a while but I need to document when it does so I can gain a better understanding of it. Right now I am more annoyed that its 215am and I am going to be tired tomorrow at work because of this. In the meantime I am waiting for my troops to finish training to I can mount one more attack before hopefully getting a better nights sleep.

Anyone?? NEW

Does anyone else pray during the dream and feel even more pressure? Like as soon as you mention God the pressure becomes even more intense? Like whatever it is that's making you feel this way gets mad? Their was this one time it was happening and I started praying the Our Father prayer. As soon as I recited the first line,I felt like I was being attacked or something. Like it didn't want me to pray. I find that extremely scary.

Make sure your hands are not on your chest. Dont give pressure on your chest while sleeping. Avoid putting hands on your chest. Nd If you are Paralysed in your Sleep just try to open your eyes forcefully. If it doesnt open on first attempt. Try some more Attempts. Relax and then go to sleep. Worked for me :)

I am relieved to know I'm not alone in these happening. Even though it sucks. Iv had these things happen to me many times usually it is just me being held down, being shaken and hearing voices. But I have been lifted off my bed as if I'm hovering I can always see but can never move. I have always been aware of the spirit world since my childhood. Its very scary and I would like to know more of why this happens to me.

Started in my late teens, that I remember, because I do believe that this happens to everyone all the time, they just don't remember. I can tell you about my firs that i can recall, but certainly not my last. The first time that this happened that I can recall; I had just gone to bed, I has laying on by left side facing my small bedroom. I was tire and was dozing. I suddenly realized that I could not move, roll over or anything, by body could not move, or talk, however I could open my eyes and comprehend everything. I tried to move, but, it seemed that I was stuck in this position, it seemed that my body had a disconnect from by brain the top of my head/brain was making this internal humming/ vibration noise that was not altogether pleasant, however, was not altogether unpleasant, just kind of like throbbing pulsating pins and needles. I opened my eyes to find that there was something that was tumbling, over and over again, like you do in gymnastics from the very top of my head into this chair that was in front of my bed. I could see it but at first I could not comprehed that what I was seeing was me, an opaque me, by body doing the tumbling, trying to disconnect from my brain and I could not let go. I was not frightened, just didn't know what was going on. After a few tumbles it seems, my brain let go, I could not believe or understand what was going on. What happen next is that the opaque me kind of hovered, then down the hallway, all the time, me, myself seeing all of this through my own eyes that was still laying on the bed watching everything from seeing my traveling through this opaque me. The next thing that happened was that I rounded the corner into my parents bedroom, saw them sleeping. My brain registered very strongly that I should not be there watching them. The opaque me, still seeing from the connected bedded me, in a matter of a split second rushed back me so fast that time did not exist, just kind of hit me like a ton of lite blocks, just rushed back into me, my brain and body..Then I could move again. This has happened many times to me since, however, very few times have I been able to consciously let go from the brain, I have figured out that it seems that I can recall it consciously while laying on my back, but think that this is just coincidental . I am not afraid of this at all, I feel that this another level of consciousness and I welcome it. I have not ever studied it, however I feel that it may be Astros Projection, just a level of consciousness

Common NEW
by: Elijah

This used to happen to me a lot about 3 years ago, then it stopped, and one day I decided to learn about it. I can now sort of control it. It can be scary as it can cause hallucinations, or spirits? Which ever you prefer, My belief is that you are aware but on a on another level and that is what causes spirits. I used to pray in the name of Jesus but i found that YHW works best, but you have to use authority and speak to it. Now one experience I can remember that scared the poop out of me was: once i awoke (at least i felt like I did) and felt something moving around the room, in my closet, and by the window, i tried to make a move however it came at me, pressed down its weight on me, it grabbed by head and turn it slightly as my head was already turned and started speaking to me in some language i didn't know but kept repeating the same line over and over again till i finally was able to muttered 'in YHW's name leave' name and it screamed and left. woke up told my mom and we prayed as she had just dreamed something also. Weird, yes...scary, yes...but we have a god who saves.

contained occurence NEW

I just recently remembered that this used to happen to me. Im now 28 and i believe these occurences happenes to me when i was 18. It only hapoened about 4 or 5 times but it was very un settling. It hapoened whether i was on my back or on my stomach. It was complete paralysis, couldnt move anything but my eyes. The stories that i have read about this happening usually states that the person is on their back. It give me an unsettling feeling thinking about this. I remember being completely aware of my surroundings though, no hallucinations or voices, just panic.

I'm 14. And this happened just a few minutes ago(it was like 4:30 am or something)... I'm so scared. I've been having these about...6 times in my life but this was the worst of it all... I was laying on my back closing my eyes then I started to dream slowly with my eyes fluttering to close. Then like I usually do, I force myself to control the dream. I was holding my ipod with my right hand in real life while I forced my virtual body to take out a golden watch or something from my pocket then all of a sudden my whole body shut down. I could hear a loud pitch of screech... Then my vision was blurred and a face came staring deeply...oh god....the more I move the more it pushes me down....I couldn't breath....

if you are having frequent wet dreams, here comes your solution. odogwumalaika@gmail.com NEW
by: george

Wet dreams is no sin but a spiritual attack, though many youths are ignorant about this thereby remaining in bondage. If u understand how the spiritual works u will know that wet dreams is caused by marine spirit to control your destiny. Many at times it causes infertility and set backs but until u break that yoke life will be difficult for u.
Let me share my experience with u, when I was younger I had this strong addiction on pornography and masturbation but after I broke out of it I started having constant wet dreams which I don't have before. This continued for over a decade, u can imagine the torment.
So no one should joke with this but seek spiritual help on time 'cos if care is not taken u can be rendered useless in life. But I was lucky enough to meet this spell caster who helped me overcome it. His email address is odogwumalaika@gmail.com

My problem NEW
by: Aniko

It is happening to me most of the time if I fall to sleep i.e. watching the tv at night.Yesterday I fell to sleep I wanted to wake up and I could not, I always fell back to sleep. I do not remember any bad dreams I just wanted to wake up. Finally it frightened my husband, he wanted to wake me up, and could not. I saw him I heard him, I wanted to talk or move but I could not. It was very frightening for me too. Finally he slept my face gently than I could wake up.
Other times it happened during the night also.
I heard something and I wanted to wake up, it took me several tries when I woke up. It is a very bad feeling, like I am alive, but I look like as a dead person.
Other times my husband said I was screaming, so he wanted to wake me, and he could only wake me if he slept my face a little. I scared him .

Sleep Paralysis: A Dreamer's Guide

Sleep Paralysis Treatment Book

Ever woken up paralyzed? A surprising number of us have, believe it or not. But few know the actual causes of this phenomenon, and fewer still how to exert control over it. Dream researcher and sleep paralysis expert Ryan Hurd shares breakthrough insights into how to do just that.

How This Site Was Made

In 2007 I discovered a guide to website building that would change my life. After learning from it diligently, it would eventually empower me to help Dr. Dement take his life's mission of spreading education about sleep health to the online world. Now, several years later, this site reaches over 100,000 visitors per month and counting.

The results are due in large part to the methods taught in that guide, and they are replicable for others who have knowledge of a subject they would like to share with the masses. I've detailed some of my journey here for those who might be interested.
