I've had sleep paralysis for years. But my problem lies with what I see when it happens. I've been seeing a creature, this exact creature. Except I only see it a lot whiter, with the eyes a lot darker.
I see it either peaking from behind the door frame, in the corner of my room, or right above me.
It never moved, until last night. It was peaking from behind the door, standing there for what seemed like an eternity, then I began hearing static, like a tv static, it gradually got louder, what sounded like multiple people screaming joined the static, it became ear peorciny loud, and at the peak of the noise, the creature turned into a bright white cloud, and moved from the door to behind me, and I woke up.
I'm afraid to sleep now.
I know that it would be terrifying in action, but he looks kind of hilarious. If it is anything other than just hallucinations that come with sleep paralysis, I think he's having a good time fucking around with you.
Try to inhale nice and deep when you feel it coming on.
It also happens to me once two weeks, except for the creature you mention. I knew i was sleeping but it was weird because i also knew i had my eyes opened. Everytime it happens i get very scared.
I experience it a little different then. I'm not able to move at all without feeling like being violently jolted, but I was able to get out once through the breathing and only tried that because of seeing so many posts about people noticing how rapid or slow their breathing is. I have been lucky and have never seen anything scary, the opposite actually.
Could be stress related. Cortisol can screw up all kinds of things if it is at all off balance. You're healthy and bodybuilding so that should keep things in check.
Have you ever tried to talk to it?
I had it for more than 20 years. Never saw anything because I couldn't open my eyes. A lot of different experiences with it, positive and negative. One night I was very tired of this and I got very angry during the sleep paralysis and since then it almost stopped. When it happens now (you normally feel it coming), I just get angry again when there is a bad energy around and it immediately stops.
I've always had horrible nightmares but for the first time I saw someone actually go through sleep paralysis. I was on a business trip with my brother and we were sleeping in a hotel. His screams woke me up and I looked over and he seemed awake but would not respond to me. He kept yelling help, help. Then I rocked him with a pillow. He didn't want to talk about it he just said he saw something terrifying. Still get weirded out by it
I have suffer sleep paralysis sometimes.
Really, I, never, though the same was suffer by other people. Always, I feel some presence in front of me.
When it happens I try to call someone with my louds, but my voice never appear. So I try to fall down out my bed, but I can't move any part of my body...
I love these threads. Whenever I get SP I'm usually barely lucid and on my side facing a wall, so hallucinations aren't much of a thing. I'm mildly concerned about my subconscious conjuring up some sort of eldritch shit next time it happens due to reading so many of these threads, but god dammit I enjoy them too much to stop.
I had the worst case of sleep paralysis I've ever had through the years, just last week. I had woken up, looked at my clock on my phone, and closed my eyes. I didn't even remember falling asleep, but I must have.. I heard a voice whisper in my ear.
I felt my body jolt. But I fell right into sleep paralysis, and the familiar sound of loud television static filled my ears, and the feeling of an ominous presence filled the room. I could barely open one eye, and I was filled with fear. Tried as hard as i could to yell to wake myself up fully, but to no avail. I felt the presence drawing near and I tried reaching my arm up to slap myself in the face. it was like i could feel myself slapping a numb face, but when my eye-ball crept downward my arms were still glued to my sides. I then tried thrashing my feet about and the static grew louder, imagine what fucked up thing lurked just out of my field of view, I finally managed to kick my feet and it woke me up.
I always seem to feel like I'm burning up with a fever after waking up. I'm always terrified to go back to sleep. It's usually a nightmare that brings on the sleep paralysis and one is usually waiting to greet me when I fell back asleep from it.
Don't know if this was sleep paralysis or not, but I think it was. Nothing like this has ever happened.
>wake up middle of night
>roll over and close eyes
>laying in bed, trying to go back to sleep
>all of the sudden, feel bed disappear, begin falling
>try opening eyes, but pitch black is all I can see
>think this might be lucid dream so don't panic
>feel body "turn over" so I was facing the direction I was falling
>loud grumbling noise starts and a volcano fades into view and I am falling towards it
>still trying not to panic
>fall into the lava and immediately I feel pain
>this isn't fun anymore, I think I've died and I'm falling into hell
>noise is incredibly loud at this point
>can sort of feel that I'm still actually in my body
>start trying to open eyes, I can see my room a little bit
>try calling out to my girlfriend who was asleep next to me
>keep trying to open eyes, move my body, and cry out to her
>after about 15 seconds of this, I finally snap out of it and jolt up
>first sound I notice in the real world is the sound of the fan of the central heat running
>Overwhelming feeling of total terror overwhelms me
>wake gf up and tell her what happened and literally cry
I didn't enjoy that at all desu
Last time I had SP I remember realizing it was happening and yelling help, to no avail. I was able to look around my room but did not see anything nor did I hear anything.
While it was going on I recall trying to get up from my bed, and fell straight to the floor. I thought I would wake up on the floor, but I was on my bed.
Shit is strange.
