The last year I had a lot sleep paralysis and I mean a lot, at least 1 for week. I had so much paralysis dreams that I got used.
Almost always the shadows on the roof turned into a shadow figure, probably a woman or something, like witch, i can't tell, always said things that I couldn't understand, at first I got really scared but within months I got so used that I really didn't feel scared or something anymore. Like: Oh! another paralysis dream.
I had a 'way' to exit from this dreams, I closed my eyes, as hard I can (on the dream), and I tried to not listen, moving is really hard when you are in this condition, but I got so used that somehow I could move, I mean, I felt like my body weigh ten times heavier, but I could hardly move.
So, I closed my eyes, with my hand I did the signal of holy cross and started to recite some common prayers (I'm catholic).
I'm not sure how, but this really help me to 'exit' of this kind of dreams.
Despite for being catholic I'm sure there is no demons or witches, I attribute these dreams to the stress and depression I was living at the time.I also improved a bit my egirish
