Its been happening to me all of my life! Now that im 28 it happens less frequent, when i take naps lying on my back. I was told by Silvia Brown, that in people who suffer from sleep paralysis, our soul leaves our bodies and we wake up before the soul returnes. If you notice you only have sleep paralysis while lying on your back.

Yes, i’ve exsperienced this many times since I was about 10yrs old. The first time it happened I awoke to see a beuatiful woman in my room, she had long pale gold hair and long blood red finger nails, she wore a long white old (like victorian style) dress. I couldn’t move or scream no matter how much I tried…sge held out one perfect long fingered hand to me…in my mind I was screaming “mom! Help me! I don’t want to go with you scary lady!” She became angry & her face and body changed into a scary crone (like… Read more »

YEP!!….Happened to me several times…wake up, can’t move, dark shadow like figure comes around and sets upon my chest. It is extremely terrifying like, pure fear. It’s not like being scared, that’s nothing compared to this fear. It’s like a state of fear, hopelessness, and helplessness. WELL…the last time it happened was like 8 years ago several weeks after my wife was murdered. I was sort of falling asleep when the black hazy figure crepped up like a snake around my shoulders and back then around to th top of my chest..(I was lying on my back)…At this time in… Read more »

Yes..it is actually called sleep paralysis. It has something to do with the REM stage during sleep. It happens to me quite often, usually while napping.

Yes. I woke from a sound sleep to see an old lady standing
before me. She vanished after a few seconds.
She resembled an old fairy tale witch!

P.S. I have also had an out of body experience.
Where you wake up and cant breath or talk.
And you are hovering above your body.

Yes, I have experienced it several times. Each time it happened was when a dream woke me up instead of just ending and me staying asleep. But, I awoke slowly instead of quickly, as usual. It can be very disorienting because both your mind and your body are transitioning from sleep to waking, but at different rates.

Sort of. I was waking from a dream in which my daughter was injured and in a hospital dying. I became aware that my physical reaction to this horrible situation was an attempt to scream, but I could not make any sound. Even as I became fully awake, I couldn’t make any sound come from my throat.
