Sleep paralysis….should i be scared?

I get it quite often and idk wtf is going on. It is such a strange feeling….I wanna know what it means. Am i more susceptible(*) to paranormal experiences because of this? It sure feels like it. Someone help.
The only reason i even mentioned paranormal is because it seems so unnatural. Ive also heard it has stuff to do with “astral projection” …..
Ok, some people are so brainwashed. ok I already BELIEVE IN JESUS. You bible thumpers needs to not force your beliefes on other people. especially over the internet. gaaaawd!
Im sorry if the detail above this one seemed a little mean. What i meant was i already do believe in jesus and i dont to pray for forgivness anymore than i already do. lol. Thank you everyone for your input<33 blessed


  • Elly, I recommend praying the rosary on a regular basis. The Virgin Mary is Our Lady of Good Health, and can help you to deal with this properly. See the following promises.

    The rosary is explained here;

    The fifteen promises of Mary to Christians who recite the rosary:
    1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces.
    2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
    3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against Hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
    4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
    5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.
    6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.
    7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
    8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in Paradise.
    9. I shall deliver from Purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
    10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
    11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
    12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
    13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire Celestial Court during their life and at the hour of death.
    14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
    15. Devotion to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

    God bless!

  • on the one hand the first answer is true, on the other hand if there are more than natural reasons for your problem i would be concerned.
    but one thing is sure, if you are not bein physically harmed and there are no drug rapists or sodomites
    then, truly you dont have to be worred.
    the bible has ONE verse that describes something known as men-stealers, and the dictionary writes this off as kidnapping.
    jesus also gave a parable about a strong man being bound and his goods being stolen, one way sorceries bind a strong man is to paralyze men, hence men stealers.

  • Many people experiece it and I do experience it from time to time. And yes, It does feel strange. I don’t think you need to worry, but if you feel worried then maybe you should talk to a doctor/psychologist.

    Hope all works out ok.

  • People will call it some “medical condition”, and perhaps sometimes it is, but there are also demons that attack people. If it is demons, you are in big trouble.

    And either way, you need salvation.

    Demons ALWAYS mean harm, destruction, and death to people. And only JESUS can stop demons. You need to believe in Jesus alone for salvation, and call on the Name of Jesus for help NOW!

    The truth is that death brings IMMEDIATE heaven or hell, depending ONLY on whether you believe in Jesus alone for salvation or not.

    Heaven is eternal joy with the Lord! 😀

    Hell is eternal torment. Nobody has to be sent to hell. So to be in heaven and not hell, believe in Jesus alone for salvation now! 🙂

    Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! 😀

    Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus alone to save you! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, 1 John 5:13).

    The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to eternal hell, is by believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for all our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus alone for salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what!

    Please pray now: “Jesus, please forgive me of my sins. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and You rose from the dead. Thank You for eternal life!” You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die. 🙂

  • Just sleep on your stomach instead of your back and you’ll be fine.
    I’ve experienced that a few times and it’s really scary. Sleeping on my side or stomach is a sure fix.

  • Nothing to be scared of, even though it is a scary, uncomfortably feeling while it’s going on.

    It just means that while you’re going from a deep sleep cycle to a lighter one, sometimes part of your brain gets more conscious than others; parts are waking up while others are still totally asleep.

    I’ve had this since about 15 yrs old, and it was always a struggle to convince myself not to panic and freak out when it happened. But the paranormal has nothing to do with it.

  • No your body is just going to sleep before your mind is. It’s a protective mechanism your body/mind uses so you don’t harm yourself in your sleep.

    Sleep paralysis is also the first stage of an OBE or Out of Body Experience, next will be a vibration or noise which keeps increasing in strength, and if you concentrate on that vibration you can sometimes separate your consciousness from your mind and body and have other paranormal/mystical experiences. Astral projection is nothing to be afraid of, it’s what all the going to “heaven” myths are really all about.
