Do anybody think sleep paralysis is paranormal?





I think it is, but wikipedia prove it’s not paranormal it is our minds that is playing with us. But i still believe it’s paranormal cause one night when i was sleeping i had a sleep paralysis and when i suddenly open my eyes i saw a shadow!!! It looked just like the dementors on harry potter it was over my head and then it disappeard, i also experience something touching my body too.


  1. I’ve had it, and at the time was seriously concerned that I was loosing my mind.
    I was VERY relieved to learn there was a logical reason for me to see things and feel things at night, while being unable to move. So no, I don’t think it’s paranormal. But I do think that people who expereince it are prone to think they are experiencing paranormal phenomenon.
    After all, it’s scary and bad and you have to rationalize it somehow. I prefer to do it with science, but a lot of people reject the physiological reasons.

  2. Definition of Sleep paralysis
    Sleep paralysis: A frightening form of paralysis that occurs when a person suddenly finds himself or herself unable to move for a few minutes, most often upon falling asleep or waking up. Sleep paralysis is due to an ill-timed disconnection between the brain and the body.
    The symptoms of sleep paralysis include sensations of noises, smells, levitation, paralysis, terror, and images of frightening intruders. Once considered very rare, about half of all people are now believed to experience sleep paralysis sometime during their life.
    Sleep paralysis strikes as a person is moving into or out of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, the deepest part of sleep. During REM sleep the body is largely disconnected from the brain leaving the body paralyzed. Sleep paralysis is the result of premature (or persistent) mind-body disconnection as one is about to enter into (or exit from) REM sleep.
    Sleep paralysis occurs most often after jet lag or periods of sleeplessness that interrupt the normal REM patterns. It affects both sexes equally and occurs at all ages but is most common in teenagers. Sleep paralysis can be familial and may be genetic (inherited) in some cases.
    An attack of sleep paralysis is usually harmless and self-limited. It tends to be over in a minute or two as soon as the brain and body re-establish connections and the person is able to move again. However, the memory of the terrifying sensations felt during sleep paralysis can long endure. (Some scholars believe that sleep paralysis may account for some of the old claims of attacks by witches and the more recent “reports” of nocturnal abduction by space aliens.)
    A rare fatal form of sleep paralysis may, it is thought, underlie the cases of healthy teenagers, mainly in Southeast Asia, who die in their sleep, sometimes after fighting for breath but without thrashing around.
    Sleep paralysis goes by a number of names, including the “old hag” in Newfoundland (for an old witch thought to sit on the chest of the paralyzed sleeper), “kokma” in the West Indies (for a ghost baby who jumps on the sleeper’s chest and attacks the throat), “kanashibari” in Japan and “gui ya” or ghost pressure in China (because a ghost is believed to sit on and assault the sleeper). Medically, sleep paralysis is sometimes called waking paralysis, predormital (before-sleep) paralysis, postdormital (after-sleep) paralysis, and REM sleep atonia

  3. your body, including your eyes, are asleep when you have sleep paralysis. most of the time your eyes are not even open, your mind just creates a extremly realistic dream like fantasy of your room. when your eyes are open, you are prone to slight hallucinations, like shadows or lights, and its the main cause of many alien paralyzing stories. what you saw was a symptom of sleep paralysis, nothing more.

  4. It is not paranormal. What you experienced was chemicals in your brain. These type dreams give you the feeling that someone is in your room that you are in some type of panic, sometimes you want to scream but you can`t. Chemicals in your brain….that’s all. Step into the modern world this is science,stop watching Harry Potter.
