If you want to lucid dream also make sure to keep a dream diary. Check events in your dream that happen regularly. Then when these kind of triggers happen in real life, instantiate a reaction like counting your fingers and tell yourself you´re awake and in power. Then when you´ve got your pavlov effect working. When that trigger happens in our dream you will automatically count your fingers and think you´re awake and in power. Then try to hold on to your elevated consciousness and enter the lucid dream world where you can do everything you want, sense about 80% more then in a regular dream

THAT was some serious shit. Fucked me up for a few days. Sleep paralysis is not something to mess with.
Does anybody have an explanation as to why we all see the same tall dark figure? I get that theres a whole sciency side to this but I’ve never heard an explanation as to why we all see a tall man (usually at the end of the room and edges closer as we have an extremely real fear of dying)
I’ve heard it say some strange shit, I’ve had a nightmare with him in it many times in which he tells me to wake up, then when I wake up and shut my eyes immediately after seeing him and noticing im stuck I can hear “open your eyes” and most recently “i am your shadow” – seriously freaks me the fuck out even though I’m okay with SP in general

Worst night of my life.
when i was in the army, in a time when i didn’t get much sleep, during jeep patrol duties, we stopped to deliver some stuff and i dozed off in the jeep with all my gear, i was tired as shit, after 5 minutes it felt like my awareness level was around 90% but i was still sleeping, when i opened my eyes i just couldn’t move, not even move my head, i knew about sleep paralysis before so i didn’t really panicked but it was still scary, i couldn’t move at all, it was so weird, i think my heart rate went up and i started to get breathy but after 10 seconds it was over and i could move again, i was kinda happy and excited about experiencing sleep paralysis afterwards

i’ve never slept on my back since
wake up in living room, cant move my body. my sister is standing in front of me, looking down at me….. its not my sister, eyes are black, unbeilvable fear shoots through me…. cant move….. ‘sister’ keeps staring with dead eyes…… cant move, heart is racing. feel tingling in fingers…. BAM! body comes online. eyes open, im actually in my bedroom, facing towards the wall.
another time. woke up with intense fear that something was in my closet….. couldnt move…. soon as body came online, started screaming uncontrollably, my dad kicked in my door as i had locked it before i went to sleep. he was pissed.
as ive gotten older it seems to happen less.
>go to sleep
>wake up in the middle of the night
>see a ghost
>ghost comes closer
>still can’t move
>ghost flying towards me
>then actually wake up
Only happened a few times
>Still Cant move
>Try harder to move
>Feel it breaking
>Finally break it
>Sit up, confused
I’d read about it before online, but untill I experienced it I never thought it was a real thing. Didn’t really bother me too much, don’t like feeling like I can’t control my body though.
>Have dream about an evil japanese scientist luring me into his lab for what I suspected of him using me as an experiment
>Start asking doctor all kinds of weird moral questions
>Like religion, if her prayed. I’m not even religious idk why I was doing that
>Go into his lab and there are fucking crazy creatures everywhere
>I’m fucking terrified.
>This cat thing walks up all sly like and then jumps on me biting my hand
>I can’t get it off. I shit you not I could feel this bite
>I’m trying to get the doctor to help me. He’s just laughing
>I’m so fucked. holy fuck I’m scared
>trying to wake my gf beside me.
>The harder i try the worse it gets
>she finally hears me say something and shakes me up
>I don’t even recall speaking i just remember trying to.
>says that i umbled some shit and then said YOU LITTLE BITCH
>couldn’t sleep rest of night.
>go to sleep with lavalamp on.
>makes red glow
>wake at 2 am
>hear voices, no, one voice that sounded like many.
>felt the most dreadful fear I’ve ever felt in my life. Panic attack worthy
>try to listen to voice
>fast, deep, and speaking a language I’ve never heard before.
>I felt the presence as something demonic with the sound of the voice.
>see one corner of my room, completely red due to lava lamp.
>feels like it goes on for hours
>can move again, instantly reach for remote of my light
>turn it on, nothing is there. No sounds or anything.
>look at clock, 2 am
It was the worst feeling, I felt so vulnerable, So much dread, instant anxiety to the max. Felt helpless in such a horrible hallucination.
Sleep paralysis, don’t try it kids. Not even once.
