Has anyone here ever had sleep paralysis? I ask because I recently took up practicing lucid dreaming and I'm afraid of accidentally entering sleep paralysis. I've heard some spooky stories and the common theme seems to be that they can't move and see a shadowy figure in their hallway, closet, above them, etc…

What are your experiences, and did you see the shadow man, or something else spookier?

It is so common, I thought we all had experienced.

Well, the first step I saw a girl dressed in white floating in front of me, talking to me but did not understand that she wanted to tell me. I could not breathe, could not move or scream, is scary but you will pass quickly.

Sorry my bady english btw

I've had sleep paralysis before, but I haven't had any of the visions or stuff. For me it was just me dozing off on my couch, when I woke up and found I couldn't move at all. It went away after a few minutes


>What are your experiences, and did you see the shadow man, or something else spookier?

I never saw anything spooky. I was unable to move and speak for several minutes, but I could think and see. It was really scary, I can't imagine seeing "shadow men" or anything such as that while being in that state.


I've never seen any visual hallucinations
Maybe because I'm usually too scared to open my eyes lol

I usually hear scary sounds like loud electrical buzzing or metal banging. Sometimes I hear people talking and I hear my name being said a lot in the conversations. Those are the most unsettling auditory hallucinations in my opinion, hearing my name being said or hearing people talk about me. One time I heard a bunch of bees just swarming around me.

Also I feel a lot of physical sensations, usually I just feel like theres something pushing me down really hard, I used to hate it but now it's kind of comfy feeling. Then sometimes I feel like I'm spinning or flying down a hallway really really fast and being blown around by wind. And sometimes I just feel really intense vibrations.

I always keep my eyes closed though. I've learned to handle with the spookiness of the other sensations but I'm scared that if I open my eyes and see something like your pic staring down at me I will fucking lose it. I wish I weren't such a coward.


I had sleep paralysis once as a kid at summer camp. It was the kind of place that had farm animals on it. I woke up in the middle of the night and was convinced a chicken was somehow wrapped up in my sheets. I thought my hands were around it, and for some reason I couldn't move to let go of it.

Eventually someone turned a flashlight on and I could see there was nothing in my bed. It switched a flip or something and suddenly I could move again.

I found it very frightening but mainly, I think, because I couldn't understand what was happening (I had never heard of sleep paralysis). It was like having a nightmare: frightening in the moment, but not once you realize it was just a dream.


>It is so common, I thought we all had experienced.
I've never had it but I have heard enough stories about it to make me terrified of ever experiencing it, with or without shadow people popping up. I'm pretty lightweight when it comes to horror so I really would not bode well in that kind of a situation.

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

On most imageboards, people respect you for not posting unrelated images. Posting without an image is allowed.
Interesting, though. I've never had sleep paralysis.
>I'm catholic
God is only as real as those shadow figures: the human mind tries to make real whatever it thinks about often enough.


Come on dude, the guy is sharing an experience of his and you're going to shit on one minor detail? We get it, you are above religion and have no masters. I sincerely hope you aren't the guy that was shitting on religion in the other thread too because now you're just being an ass.


Don't be an ass. Leave the spic alone.
I hope you only have good dreams for the rest of your life, spic.


Once I had a very vivid dream where I fought a giant fox hand-to-hand in a church to protect my little sisters. When I woke up, I opened my eyes to see what appeared to be an old Japanese man staring me right in the face. I think he was floating directly above me. He was so close, I could have reached out and touched him. He disappeared and I jolted awake, the usual deal. Pretty fucking creepy.

When I was 8 I woke up and was unable to move for a few seconds. I could still look around. After 3 or 4 seconds I got my arms to finally move. I remained oddly calm throughout the whole thing and afterwards thought it felt cool to try and move and it slowly comes back to you/


Oh is this sleep paralysis? I guess I have experienced it once before.
>high school
>wake up in the middle of the night
>feel an arm wrapped up/tangled in my upper body
>i sleep alone
>go into full panic mode
>think a corpse is in my bed
>realize i can't move, but i thought it was more a mental fear than a physical one
>tell myself to calm down, that it's been X amount of time since i've been like this, a few more minutes won't hurt
>slowly regain control of my body
>realize it was my own arm that had fallen asleep
I gotta say, I found it really funny after the fact and I wish I could have that happen again.


what the fuck


sorry that was rude let me rephrase that

I've never seen a shadowy figure in sleep paralysis, but thats often due to me. What happens though is that I feel my bed shake or some kick waking me up so I try move to look at what caused it or try to yell to my gf for help. I realize I can't move and have to wait for my body to gain strength again (starts with fingers to limbs). I just go back to sleep after I gain movement again.

Even though I've never seen a figure I had a nightmare. It was this weird play playing in the back of my head. It went like this
>My name is Amanda
>I liked dolls
>My dad friends sometimes bought me big dolls
>I didn't play with them because they were creepy
>I grew up and stopped playing with dolls
>I was sorting through my old stuff one day
>The creepy dolls all had 'Amanda stealing dolls' on the back
The dolls all looked like the Junju Ito puppets


I've never been scared by it. I learned about astral projection first so when I got sleep paralysis the first time, I took advantage of it without being scared.


I've never had any figures before, and I hope I dont get any in the future.

I find I can get myself out of paralysis by wiggling my toes, though I may be unique in this. Eventually it wakes up my ankle and from there my legs are able to and I just wake up my body.

I plan on taking up lucid dreaming too, I hope you find success in it!


My dad used to get a shocking amount of sleep paralysis and I've had a few times before. The first time I got it, I was probably 16 or so. I knew what it was thanks to threads like these and closed my eyes the second I knew what was going on. There was a sound of an almost grinding metal machinery that gained in volume the longer it went on. While this was happening, I did my best to move a body part as that kicks you out of it. In retrospect, I wish I saw what was causing this sound in my mind.
I've also had some sleep paralysis recently. That time I wanted to see what would happen if I kept my eyes open. I saw what I could only describe as a shadow man darting around my kitchen and felt utterly terrified. I felt like my heart was going to pop out of my chest to the point where I honestly thought I might have a heart attack if I kept my eyes open any longer than I did. Though that fear might have been baseless due to the horror I was feeling in the moment. Even then, it was pretty cool looking back on it.


I have it every so often, a couple of times in a row. It takes a lot of effort to settle down to the point I can actually fall asleep again. The only thing I've ever seen was a demonically roaring smoke cloud on the left side of my bed. I know to never open my eyes during an episode or it'll only make it worse.


Thought I was being abducted by aliens the first time I had it, a roaring buzzing noise and a persistent feeling of simultaneously being held down and pulled up. Extremely weird stuff.


I've experienced this before as I woke up it seemed as if my body was hovering quite a bit over my bed as I was seemingly close to the ceiling. I couldn't move and my body felt unusually stiff. As I closed my eyes back it felt as if I dropped from a small height then passed back out in a very harsh way. I've also on a few occasions have awoken without the ability to speak or move while noticing a shadow figure lurking somewhere in the room or above me. It's unnerving most of the time but there has been times when it seems as if it's not threatening and I feel almost a sense of peace when just going back to sleep.
